Who wants free wifi? Who enjoys festivals and beer?

Remember, learning English means coming to class and doing your homework, but also (and really importantly) going out and experiencing (listening) practical English as spoken by native English speakers. Cafes are great places for this! The festival below would be another awesome place...

What do you think humans should do about disappearing animals? Is re-populating a good idea? Should we try to bring back extinct animals too? What problems could this cause?

Thank you,
