Most summer school courses in Britain last for two to four weeks. During that time students live either with a British family, or at the school, or in a hotel. They have about 15 hours of lessons every Monday to Friday, usually in the mornings. Each school has a lot of different courses. Some are for beginners and others are for intermediate or advanced students. The lessons are fun; the classes are small and the teachers are all from English-speaking countries. But summer school students don`t just speak English in the classroom. They are in Britain, so they speak and read and hear it outside, too. That`s why they learn so quickly and why a summer school course is really a holiday. Only one third of each course is taught in the classroom. The rest takes place during a busy afternoon and evening timetable of visits, sports and games. These activities help everyone to make new friends, have fun and improve their English.

Can you imagine ice that does not melt and is not wet? Have your ever heard of dry ice? Dry ice is made by freezing a gas. It is quite different from ordinary ice which is simply frozen water. Dry ice was first manufactured in 1925. It has since fulfilled the hopes of its inventor. It can be used for making artificial fog in the movies. When steam is passed over dry ice, a very dense vapor rises. It can also be used for destroying insects in grain supplies. It is more practical than ordinary ice because it takes up less space and it is 142 degrees colder. Since it turns into steam, instead of melting into water, it is cleaner to use. For these reasons, it is extremely popular and many people prefer it to ordinary ice. Dry ice is so cold that if you touch it with your hare fingers, it will burn you.
