100,000 visits

First of all thanks to my followers, not many but the first ones. And also to my students, the real target of the entries. I'm really happy to have reached 100,000 visits. Thanks to any English learner who finds something interesting on this 5-and-a-half-year-old blog. I'll try to keep on attracting your attention with more posts. I wouldn't mind a comment every now and then --just to know you're there.
100,000 million thanks!!!

Have a look at the Council of Europe website.
This week’s top stories include the impact of culture on democracy, and specifically the impact of digitalisation, as discussed by European Ministers of Culture meeting in Moscow, 14 - 16 April. In the case of ‘Aswat versus the UK’, the European Court of Human Rights decided to halt the extradition of a schizophrenic man from the UK to the US.
Also in the news this week, the highlights of the Spring Session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to be held in Strasbourg in the week of 22 April.
