Dear Teacher,

Tune Into English will be speaking at two Trinity events and three De Agostini Scuola conferences in the coming weeks – if you are near Florence, Bologna, Pescara, Catania or Milan please come along! You can read more, and book a place, here.


The Tune Into English Roadshow

The Roadshow was reported on in four print and online newspapers in January – you can read the articles and see the video here.

The tour will visit six regions of Italy in February – thank you for the positive feedback so far. I look forward to meeting you and your students this academic year!

February’s New Downloadable Worksheets

Dreams – The Cranberries
This worksheet was put online in the days following the tragic news of the death of Dolores O’Riordan – regular contributor Mena Bianco has prepared a worksheet for her band’s debut single, looking at phonetics and pronunciation. Also appropriate for Valentine’s Day, Dolores wrote this song about her first love.

No One To Call – Caitlin Rose
The 13th February is World Radio Day – this song is about how the radio never plays the songs you want to hear and the worksheet with vocabulary and collocations activities was submitted by Maria Gulczynska, Ancona.

See important dates in February for more radio resources.

Over 320 Downloadable worksheets now online – including a selection of Valentine’s Day songs (Note: Ed Sheeran’s Perfect will be added here before the 14th!).
Most of the worksheets have been written by your colleagues – perhaps you have prepared one and want to share it?

Speak Up Videos – Extracts from the Roadshow

In theme with Valentine’s Day, February’s Speak Up video looks at Locked Away by R.City and In The Name Of Love by Martin Garrix (for the Second Conditional) – you can preview it here.
