As the sun streams through the office window here at The Organisation​ our thoughts turn to summer - picnics in parks and on beaches, strolling in shady woods and generally reconnecting with nature. This is a nice little article featuring one of Lorenzo Sabbatini's illustrations that extols the virtues of getting back to basics and encourages language teachers to include activities and texts inspired by nature in their lessons. Now all that is left to do is to keep our fingers crossed we actually get a summer this year!!!

We are loving this new wallpaper featuring Gareth Lucas' adorable animal characters! Designed to make learning the alphabet fun for children and bringing out the child in those of us that are a little older! Go on, download one - you know you want to!!
