Fin de Curso. ¡Felices Vacaciones!

Pasa el ratón por la imagen. (Hover over the picture.)
Bueno, ha llegado el final del curso. Tanto si las cosas han ido bien como si no, nos merecemos todos una vacaciones. Algunos tendréis que repasar un poco para los exámenes de septiembre -¿quién no ha tenido alguna vez que retroceder para tomar carrerilla y saltar un obstáculo que otros parecían saltar sin esfuerzo?

Well, school year is over now. Whether we have done well or not, we all deserve these holidays. Some of you will have to do a little reviewing for September exams: don't worry. Who has never had to step back to take a run up and jump an obstacle that others seemed to jump effortlessly?

Así es que, descansad, leed, jugad y disfrutad de vuestros amigos para volver con ganas. Durante este tiempo este blog estará también de vacaciones aunque, lo que lo necesitéis podéis volver a ella para practicar o repasar.

So, rest, read, play, have fun with your friends so as to come back ready for a new school year. Meanwhile this blog will be on vacation too, although you can browse these pages if you need to refresh some topics.

Felices vacaciones a todos y... nos vemos aquí en septiembre.
Have nice holidays and... see you here in September.
