Although I don’t speak about it much, I follow all of your blogs regularly. Some of you have been doing a very good job at maintaining them active and alive. Keep it up! And try to spend some time looking at what your classmates are writing or sharing.
During these past months there have been many posts that I have really enjoyed. I specially remember those which explained your reactions to reading Mandela’s Way (Estrella’s beautifully personal piece comes to my mind, for example). There are many texts and materials from your blogs which I could mention here, but it is precisely those posts which involve yourselves as persons, and not only as minds, which I tend to appreciate more.
Recently I have admired this one, authored by Paco Blánquez, who -in one piece- wraps up inversions, semantic fields and his genuine reaction to the story of the Syrian refugees and the poem by Sa’adi which I included as a comment.
Not only does using what we learn helps us to improve our English: incorporating ideas, feelings and experiences makes us grow as persons. The first will assist us in succeeding with the C1; the second, beyond it.
