Recommend me a book

Feedback 

Are you looking for new books to read? It is said that the first page of a novel is essential to grab the reader's attention just as the first two sentences of a tale are key for a writer.
Go to http://recommendmeabook.com/ and click on any of the book covers. Read the first page of that book. Are there any books you have not read because the cover was not appealing to you?

Jokes in English: "Accountants and engineers on a train"

Feedback 

Three engineers and three accountants are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single ticket. "How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks an accountant. "Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer. They all board the train. The accountants take their respective seats but all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "Ticket, please." The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on. The accountants saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all). When they get to the station they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all. "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed accountant. "Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer. When they board the train the three accountants cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby. The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the accountants are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."

Internet slang

Feedback 

Internet slang is a type of slang used and most often invented by Internet users. Many Internet slang terms are created in order to save time typing by abbreviating or shortening words and terms, in some cases extending to fitting long and well-constructed sentences into a more or less impractical acronym. Take a look at the list of abbreviations below. Are you familiar with them?

St. Patrick's Day

Feedback 

St. Patrick's Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland's patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. 
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities and organizations. Many people wear an item of green clothing on the day. Parties featuring Irish food and drinks that are dyed in green food colour are part of this celebration.
It is a time when children can indulge in sweets and adults can enjoy a "pint" of beer at a local pub. Many restaurants and pubs offer Irish food or drink.

2nd Conditional: If I were a boy

Feedback 
ESO 2 Students:

Here's a song to practise the 2nd Conditional (unit 6):



If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it.
'Cause they’d stick up for me.

Blue Monday 2017

Feedback 

Hi there, Labor Students.

Today is Monday, but not just any Monday. Today is... Blue Monday!

Blue Monday is a name given to the Monday of the last full week of January, thought to be the most depressing day of the year as part of a 2005 publicity campaign by Sky Travel.

The concept is considered pseudoscience with its formula derided by scientists as nonsensical.
