After a rather long absence I am back. This time I am blogging this from my beautiful new hometown Barcelona. I’ve moved here about seven months ago and am happy to say that I’m settling in rather well. I love the sun, the beach, the many interesting people I meet here and of course I love the vibe and buzz of one of Europe’s coolest cities!
Now that I’ve got my TESOL diploma finally in my bag – remember, that was the reason I was quiet for nearly a year – I am ready to start blogging again.
So here comes my first entry in 2014. This one is really very special to me, because it’s featuring my friend and colleague Frankie Austin from Immersed English who will be teaching you a bit of glorious English pronunciation. Check out our latest video and find out what a banana and a pint of beer have in common. In this video you’ll be learning about one of the most common sounds in spoken English: the schwa /ə/.
