Well! Just like Michael Jackson's Show that we never saw... We have come to an end.  I want to thank you for putting up with your work in the blogs, it has been a terrific work.  I know that sometimes it is difficult to do these tasks but I am sure that they have helped you improve your English.

As a final task I would like you to go back in your blogs and see all the work that you have done.  Please write a post saying what did you enjoy the most about doing these activities and what you did not like so much.  Also please state a general comment about what you have learned during these Tuesdays working here in the Computer lab.

Thank you very much, I had a wonderful time having all of you as my students.


How to prepare for the FCE Writing test

  • Think about who you are writing to and use an appropriate style of language
  • Try to use a range of complex language
