English is one of the most widely spoke languages in the world, and most businesses depend on their staff having a good level of English in order to progress in the cut and thrust world of trade today.

Danny's Reading - Travel

Average: 3.9 (11 votes)

I've never really understood the expression 'itchy feet'. I know what it means, of course, and for those of you who've never heard it before, itchy feet is what you get when you get the sudden urge to travel; to want to leave where you are because, suddenly, where you are is not where you want to be. I'’ve never felt like that. I've never felt the need to go out and see the world because, the way I see it, doing the job I do, the world tends to drop into my classroom and see me. So, I've never got itchy feet.

Until now.
