Welcome. After 17 years publishing articles in Think in English magazine and Yes (Your English Supplement) I’ve decided to start a blog. The idea of this site is both to allow[1] me to keep my hand in[2] and to offer those of you who enjoyed Think and Yes to continue to practise your English. All the posts will be footnotes, just as[3] all the articles in Think and Yes were. I would love to receive feedback[4] and I am also open to suggests about topics[5] to write about (if I feel qualified to write something).

1 to allow – permit, enable

2 to keep one’s hand in (keep-kept-kept) – not lose a skill, continue to practise

3 just as – in the same way that

4 feedback – reactions, opinions

5 topic – (false friend) theme, subject
