By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

My name's Geraldine

Hello my name's Geraldine. I'm glad to participate in this forum.
I'm a little lost with the different kind of activities : forum, groups, skype chat, etc.
Obviously, it's impossible to participate in the skype chat without 2 stars... I hope I could have these soon.
I would like to improve my english for finding a new job and for travelling too.
My primare concern is to succeed in spoken language.
It's difficult because in France, when we learn english, we don't speak a lot.
What about you? Have you make progress with this forum?
Please to read you,

    Welcome to the forum @geraldine.

    You have landed in a great place to keep improving your English. Since I got involved with the LE Network activities, my English has sky-rocketed. It doesn't happen as by magic though, but the more you'll do and get involved, the more you will benefit from all the ressources the Network offers.

    You're right, to join the Skype sessions you need to win your 2nd forum star first, but be aware that you can already join all the oth"r voice sessions. For example, Back to Basics at 10 AM tomorrow in a Google Hangout is open to us all, no matter the stars.

    Here is the calendar of events if you feel curious about the different sessions.

    Have fun!

    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.
