February: New Month, New Start!

Hi everyone, A new month has just started. Can you believe that? We are already in February! and how many days are in this month? 28 only (29 if it’s a leap year).

All the rest have thirty-one, Excepting February alone, And that has twenty-eight days clear, And twenty-nine in each leap year. What’s on at EC Bristol? Let’s look at the new monthly calendar. Yesterday we held a QUIZ for the students, with Kyle Davies, one of the EC Bristol teachers, being the quizmaster. It was a great opportunity for the students to practise their English while having fun. Who is this person? What is it? Many questions asked and many answers received by different teams. Check the pictures out on our EC Facebook Page! Every two weeks we organise either a FREE Pronunciation Class or a FREE Academic Lecture.
