  1. Hi Hellen!

    I just read about this company, and i felt a bit astonished by knowing there are things like this nowadays. I am not saying it is not worthy, just find it very surprising, and I’ve though it might be an interesting article… It also uses the binomial “Bread and Butter”, just a coincidence. The truth is that this company teaches mainly women, although the article talks about men, to avoid feminist’s critics, I think.

  2. This next week I will not go to class because I’ll be going to Malta with my family. The Ryanair tickets were so cheap that I could not avoid buying them. Although I am glad to travel with my family I somehow regret not been able to attend Helen’s lessons for a week. They are really interesting and I am learning a lot. Anyway, Malta was a British colonie COLONY until the early sixties so I will practice PRACTISE for sure some English over there. I have heard natives do speak English fluently. Warm regards to all. Manuel

    • How strange – my father’s going to Malta next week. You never know, you just might meet up with him! Have a great time.

  3. It will be a pleasure to meet your father. We will be staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in St. Julian
