  Cash Mobs And Knot Tying
Whether you have pink hair, are competing at the Olympics in July, want to visit Wellington or love your Mom, there's something for you among our resources this month.

"Welcome Back" looks at the banning of a girl by her school after her parents agreed to her dyeing her hair because she had improved her grades (Elementary Instant Lesson).

Want to know what your accommodation will be like at the Olympics? Our Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson, "Olympic Accommodation", gives an intro to the Olympic Village in London: (Internet lounge, a bank, and beauty salon and spa, and only two people to each apartment.)

Planning a wedding? Our lesson "The Cost of Tying The Knot" reveals how much most American couples will spend on their weddings, the hottest wedding colours and when it's best to get married. ( Intermediate Instant Lesson).

The Upper Intermediate Instant Lesson "Cash Mobs" looks at social networking mobilising groups of shoppers to get shopping.

Our Featured Lessons honor mothers in support of Mother's Day. And windy Wellington, capital of New Zealand, is given a brief intro in our warmer. (Famous Cities - Wellington - Weekly Warmer.)

We hope you have a great month.

Best wishes,
The English To Go Team

This month's Point of Interest
This month's Teaching Point comes from one of this month's new lessons, the Elementary Instant Lesson, 'Welcome Back'

A sixth grade student with pink hair can now go back to school. The school told the girl to stay at home because of her pink hair, but now she can go back to school.

The girl's parents were happy when the 12-year-old girl improved her grades at Shue-Medill Middle School in Newark, Delaware. She told her parents she wanted pink hair. Her father helped her dye her hair. When the girl went to school the next day, the school told her to go home because of her hair. She missed 3 days of school. School rules say hair colour should be "a natural color, brown, blond, black, natural red/auburn."

The American Civl Liberties Union (ACLU) talked to the school and now the girl can go back to school.
