Happy New Year and welcome to the first of our 2016 newsletters. Here’s our news about the latest additions to the BE website. (You’ll find links to all of them under ‘Recent articles’ in the sidebar on the right.)

Last year was very busy for us and involved a house move and various other quite major upheavals so sorry for a bit of hiatus towards the end of the year. But we’re back in the saddle again and have some new content for you.

Since I last wrote, we’ve added three quick quizzes for you. Two of them are on the subject of classic British sitcoms. Have a go and see how well you know your Steptoe from your Porridge. As usual, we think they’re quite fiendish, but if nothing else you might learn something interesting.

The third one’s about weird words and names that I’ve encountered recently. Erm, you might find this one a bit out of this world too as not all the words and names are in English. But have a go anyway!

We’ve also added two new Pics of the Week. The first is of Neptune’s Fountain in Gdansk’s Long Market. The second, just for a change, is a cartoon by me. For me, as a beginner, cartooning is only a hobby but some people actually make a living from drawing cartoons and it’s another way to earn a living by working online at home. Last year we featured two such professional cartoonists, Steve Bright and Andrew Birch. If you missed out earlier, you can still find the articles on our site.

As usual, the BE forum provides information on a wide range of expat issues, as well as the opportunity to socialise with like-minded people all around the world. Join in the fun here!
