Ciprofloxacin in Superrealistic Colour, by B. A. Pabón

All right, so let’s say you need to visit a GP, or General Practitioner, for a prescription while in the U.S.A.  The RPH, that is, the Registered Pharmacist, is going to prepare the drug for you, and, if you’re lucky, it will be ready in twenty minutes. Here’s a matching exercise for NB2 students. Enjoy!

Old Dogs, New Tricks

a-friend-in-need-cassius-marcellus-coolidgeI know it’s awfully kitsch and lowbrow, but it’s also kind of a classic in a cheesy, tastless way, this painting by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge from the 1900s, very aptly titled A Friend in Need. A Headings exercise for Advanced students.

Bus Shelter in Birmingham. B. A. Pabón, MMVII.

One article, three exercises—exercises which have very little to do with the exam-type headings Advanced students are used to but are sure to boost your vocabulary and cultural input.

Compensation for Losses Suffered, Now!

What a joy it is to know that justice is done in certain countries! We should have laws like these in Spain. If we had them, and I could get compensation backdated to the day I first set foot on Spanish soil, I’d be one of the wealthiest men in the country. Advanced students, do your best!
