Ja ha arribat la tardor i amb el canvi d’estació, ens acomiadem un any més de la calor, de les vacances i de la sensació de no tenir res a fer. La tardor ens permet gaudir dels petits detalls, ens convida a posar-nos una capa més de roba i a començar la rutina que vam deixar mesos enrere.

La tardor tracta de començaments i quina millor manera de fer-ho que aprenent anglès? Per això, hem preparat una selecció d’expressions que no trobaràs a faltar en els cursos d’anglès de Merit i que estan relacionades amb la tardor, descobreix una altra forma de veure la tardor en anglès:
