Libre à qui le souhaite de tisser ici ses propres fils avec ceux d'un blog à la trame dessinée par l'anglais et son univers. Orientés par exemple par l'histoire, l'humour, la musique ou le cinéma ses vidéos, textes, sons, illustrations -etc- viennent y prolonger les thèmes explorés en cours, et j'y publie des ressources conçues pour enrichir la pratique de la langue. S'il peut devenir outil de progression, je souhaite aussi qu'il vous procure plaisir et parfois même amusement... why not ?!
