Living Learning English. Bristol

I was lucky enough to be invited to talk at a special one-day event in Bristol hosted by the remarkable Living Learning English, a set-up that specialises in providing one-to-one or one-to-two students for teachers across the country. The students live with the host teachers for a week, or two, sometimes up to a month, and learn in situ. Fascinating to work with teachers used to this context. To learn more about the organisation, go here: http://www.livingenglish.com. Here are a few snapshots of Bristol taken on the walk to and from the station.

      Ah, that’d make sense. Thanks for the info.
      There’s a strange pipe round the corner from my house that I’ve often wondered about, and that I only recently learned was what’s known as a stench – or stink – pipe.

      This then led me to discover there are whole websites out there dedicated to cataloguing these strange and mysterious objects, all of which makes me rather happy.
