10 Good Questions

Two years ago, an EFL Textbook called OUP Headway used our stories and songs to help teach English.

We seek to encourage this dream, wherever it’s found. For is this not the hedged and wild-flowered land, of green hills and forests, ancient chapels and castles, twinkling rivers and mountain lakes?
