Man im really aching at the moment, when the school closes i'll go to the drugstore and get something to take the ache away a little. Hopefully i will shake this flu off in a couple of days.
I've been trying to get info about some courses here in Brasilia, courses for teaching English. I emailed one place called RLC Schools but their email address no longer exists and also their website isnt working properly so i gave up with them and decided to try another place called Englishhome instead. They are the nearest places that do both CELTA and ACELT and i wanna see how much they are going to charge for those courses. There was also a place called Sevenidiomas but they are only based in Sao Paulo and there is no way that i am going to travel all that way and they have no online courses available too. I know a person at Cultura Inglesa and i will email him to see if he can give me some info too. I'd like to complete some of these types of courses to help me teach English better and also because it will help open the door to the better paying schools hahaha!
I wanted to visit SBS today but they are closed until the first week of Jan next year. I went downtown to check out some other bookstores and they had quite a few English books but want to charge sometimes 10 or more times the original costs of the books in the USA or UK. What a rip-off!! At Sbs I get 20% discount on everything i buy there so i will visit them in the new year and see what they have on offer. Roberta will probably go too as she loves English and loves visiting this place :-) Their website says they dont have any books by Dan Brown, who wrote The Da Vinci Code but maybe thats because they havent added it to the website yet. I'll check it out when i go to the store next week if i can find a couple of hours free. Also i wanna check out Sophies World too, but i wont pay R$50 for a book that only costs $7 anywhere else in the world. Talk about a license to print money! Maybe its time to use Kazaa to get a copy from their network free, after all most books are scanned and uploaded there hehehe! Just have to slip into admin mode here so i can run exe files. It'll just take a few minutes to get it installed ;-) I wonder if i can get one of the schools to print it all out for me free? hahaha! Just a few hundred pages, nothing for them top worry about.
I got Bend It Like Beckham from the video store this afternoon. I dont know if its a good film or not but i read some of the book and that was realls good so i have high hopes for the film too. Hopefully beckham wont star in it as i cant stand the little faggot! I'll let here what the film is like okay?
Right the schools closing soon so id better end and finish my coffee and then off to ring Roberta..
