Review Handouts by Mr. Dhahri

Maamar Dhahri, a teacher of English in Souk Jedid, sent two interesting handouts: The first one is a summary of grammar rules for 4th Year students. The second handout was prepared by Miss Salwa Mhamdi. It is a comprehensive recapitulation of the vocabulary covered in "Skills for Life". Both documents are meticulously conceived and organized into sections.
We thank our colleagues for sharing these two valuable resources.

New Tests by Mr. Neji Ncibi

A smiling face, an eloquent and witty sense of humour, a caring soul and a generous colleague with a pile of ELT magazines or great resources for teaching English under his arm: This is how most of the teachers of English in the area of Sidi Bouzid know Mr. Neji N'cibi. He has always been a great inspiration for all of us either as a colleague or as a "conseiller p├ędagogique". Mr. Neji sent these tests two months ago but we were busy preparing for the magazine.  We are really sorry for the delay. Thanks again for sharing!
