hcnySo today, the darkest day of the month, the water snake has gone and the horse has arrived at full gallop!  Here are a couple of links to practice your English:

This first link (click here), after a brief intro to the year of the horse, leads you to some creative activities to do at home: Chinese writing, paper-cutting, dragon and lantern making and different fortune cookie recipes.

This article (click here)  from the Guardian newspaper is full of interesting facts and figures.  It also includes a video, giving you the opportunity to practice your listening skills.

 

The horse: a noble, strong animal full of energy, yet capable of tenderness, as this photo of little Ana and ‘Hussey’ shows. Let’s hope this Year of the Horse is full of those qualities.  Happy New Year!
