1 Greetings

Hi everybody!

As you maybe know (or not) I'm building a website about sciences languages and with a specific part concerning the natural language learning and more specifically how to learn English when you're not an English native speaker. So I hope you'll find some interesting materials there. But instead of waiting for the endless construction of my website I decided to create a weekly newsletter. So here it is.

Enjoy the reading!

4 Tips of the week

4.1 Good writing

If you haven't heard about that tool yet it's time to install this plug-in! It's called Grammarly and it's very useful. As the name says that's correcting your grammar errors (not all obviously) so it's really convinient.
