I would like to share with all my readers and friends the letter of a patient reader, or a reader in Job´s mood -talking about the saint, I mean- written in despair for the “disgusting treatment” she suffered in hospital. Click on the link I have just read on @HuffPostUK. Enjoy! 😉

Tom & Jerry (book and workbook)

Listen up, kids! If you are reading this post via wordpress or moodle learn that we will name Tom to our Student´s Book (whatever it is) like the house cat from TV. Our Workbook or Exercise Book´s will be known as Jerry. Tom and Jerry were two characters from a famous cartoon TV series created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. These animals were quarrelling and fighting all day long. Tom was a cat. Jerry was a mouse.

I have found that we (students and myself) are in a mess when we deal with one book or the other. Now, we have the chance to identify the big book with a cat and the small, thinner book with a little mouse.
