There was an old person of Fife, Who was greatly disgusted with life;They sang him a ballad,And fed him on salad,Which cured that old person of Fife. There was an old man of the North,Who fell into a basin of broth; But a laudable 2 cookFished him out with a hook,Which saved that old man of the North.

Coming back from my academic trip this time and meeting my students after the break of two weeks, I got a desire to discuss with you, dear colleagues, how you start your course after having some breaks in studies (like New Year or especially after summer vacation).Our students are like shopping trolleys, I think: you load them with all the necessary "products" during the year and when summer starts they look and sound very impresive. But when you meet again in a couple of weeks or even months, well, they are mostly quite empty with only some basic "products" left in them.
Everybody knows that learning through fun is a very promising technique, so as for me I try to use this fact wherever possible, like my last idea, which is quite common in the Net nowadays – is to print different phrases and their funny translations made by my students on a picture showing a translator. I show these to my students and write the correct translation lower, thus they memorize the correct one far faster.
