The cold of winter has come, perhaps to stay. The last few days have had a frigid feel and look to them – the bleak-looking trees, a few last leaves flying around in the wind, students dashing past my window in their sweaters and coats. I’m always warm, though, in my classroom. My students and I work through our lessons in a snug and pleasant atmosphere. The hot water kettle keeps quietly bubbling as we sip our tea or hot chocolate and discuss various English matters. We also smile and laugh a lot, which always makes wintry days seem a little like summertime.
