A Suggestion

If you ever ask me what kind of project I really like trying I’d say: Read the following and let me know your opinion about it. How-to-Produce-a-play

Anyway I know you have lots of things to do and not so much time to do them all. We’ll have to choose. A good idea is making a list and tick the ones completed. Remember the third term is really short and I’ll ask you to give your 100% if you want a really nice score…

And as I know most of you will have finished doing your exercises. Here is something related to the above link that I’m sure you will enjoy doing.
