Warm or Cold, There's Something For You All!

 

Where I'm sitting, it's cooling down as we head into winter. Where you're sitting it may well be hotting up. Wherever you are, there's something for you.

This month's lessons include an entertaining one for Elementary students on how much a prom costs for American high shcool students (Cost Of The Prom - Elementary Instant Lesson) and one on the increasingly elaborate afterprom parties being organized by American parents in the hope of keeping their kids drug and alcohol-free. Door prizes might be anything from a car to a scholarship (Party Bribes - Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson).

We look at how China is attempting to care for its rural elderly people in a scheme which has the elderly caring for the very elderly. (Old and Older - Advanced Instant Lesson) There are also new vocabulary, grammar and online resources.

This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's free lesson, the Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Fill 'er Up!'.

-Filling up on petrol station offices
Wed Mar 13, London - Seeking a place to work out of the office that is quieter than a bustling coffee shop and provides drinks, printers, Wi-Fi and even petrol? Regus, a provider of ready-to-use office space, thinks it has the answer.
It has teamed up with Shell Germany to open up workplace hubs and lounges in 70 petrol stations in and around Berlin that will provide Wi-Fi hotspots, scanners, printers, phone charging and even meeting rooms, depending on the space available.
"You already see people working in Starbucks, hotel lobbies. They want facilities they're not getting there though, such as printers, phone charging, the ability to sit somewhere quiet and make a phone call," Phil Kemp, global managing director for Regus Third Place told Reuters.
The hubs are what Regus terms the 'third place' for workers, the first and second being the office and the home. Working in this way is a trend that is being driven by the explosion in tablet computers and smartphones.
"People are no longer bound by the nine-to-five, or having to physically be in an office," Kemp said.
