Business, pleasure or matriculation examination?
English is a language that you hear every day from television and read in the net.
But there is always a chance to improve your language skills!
Maybe there is a need to speak fluent English in a business meeting, or a long waited holiday in a distant destination is approaching. And of course you need to study for the matriculation examination, for sure!
Oulu city library has a large collection of materials in English and here you have some examples of them. Enjoy English!
