Hot Travel Trends for 2012

 La mejor manera de hablar el inglés en verano es viajar a un país de habla inglesa … Por supuesto!

Tip of the Week | Consejo para esta semana

The best way to speak better English is to travel to an English-speaking country, of course! Don’t stay on a resort where there will be many foreigners, instead stay in trendy areas where the locals hang out. You have many choices for your break– USA, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are just a few options for the traveller seeking an English-speaking experience.
