    25. 25. Library is good place to teach yourself to learn more English.   The first step in library was with my classmates with my teacher Michele Cona . That trip was very wonderful .   In library we found all help with library clerk . After that we make a tour in the library . We  found the books about English language and the video,  and there many way to learn English like : audiobook, videocassette , DVDs ... as we  ask the library clerk about any thing if we don't know it. After that we got the library card . It became for us to use it for many way to learn English like, How  to borrow a book a video, How to return any thing you borrow. Really library is a good space to make yourself going up with English.   Abdel <ul><li>Wk 6: Publish / Enjoy! </li></ul>
