Weekend Links: February 20

As usual, the week was exciting. I’ve came across a number of talent and strength classifications, implying that all people are different and their strengths are imprinted from birth. I’ll be reflecting on this in later posts.

In terms of blog posts, the week wasn’t so great as the last one, but there’s still something worth sharing, so have a look :)

Read This if You’re Dreading Making Phone Calls in English! by Robby Kukurs

Another great post from Robby, in which he focuses (obviously) on speaking on the phone, and seeming fluent in the process.

What I like about Robby is that any of his posts can be used for any language you’re studying: the methods are essentially the same! Don’t miss it, these tips are really valuable.

That’s all for today. Hope you’re having a great weekend. See you next week!
