Dear all, like every year I would like to meet you up for an end-of-year toast. This time the event will be at home: live music, wine and water, bread and delicious homemade dips.

London is a hugely diverse city encompassing hundreds of cultures and languages. So it isn’t surprising that, out of this melting pot, a new dialect has emerged: Multicultural London English. MLE is more than just teenage slang or the language of grime artists: it is spoken by young people of all backgrounds and has moved far beyond the capital, into the middle classes and the mainstream. It transcends ethnic categories and is ever growing and evolving.
El próximo sábado 17 de noviembre, 17.30, en el Teatro El Cubo se presenta el poemario de Claudia Ferradas "Transiciones". Presentación a cargo de Malena Solda. Lectores invitados: Estela Meije y Horacio Derrón.

This is London through my eyes. I am a foreign English teacher who studied the language and its culture for as long as I can remember. This is my fourth time in London. I had not returned for many years and found it yet more bewildering, inspiring and diverse. I feel even more motivated to keep learning and sharing with you all I have absorbed in its paths, stories and people.
