Latest Version of the LSI App available for download at the Apple Store

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Version 2.0 of LSI’s language Test App was released in late October and since then has been downloaded well over 2’500 times. In addition to the original multiple-choice grammar test of version 1.0, the updated App also tests reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. It is downloadable to your iPhone, iPod and, for the first time, to your iPad. At the moment, version 2.0 tests English only. French and German tests will be added in 2012. Visit the App Store and type in “LSI” to try it for your-self or email zur@lsi.edu to find out more.

Moustache Growing at LSI Cambridge all in the name of charity

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

LSI Cambridge staff (male members only of course!) have been growing moustaches for a charity fund raising event. Throughout November they have participated in ‘Movember’, a charity campaign to raise money for Cancer Research.

School director Phil Scherb, and teachers Chris George and Paul Corey have all willingly sacrificed the clean shaven look for this worthy cause. And what a transformation. After an itchy month Phil and Chris are looking forward to the moment when they can shave. Paul however has not been so fortunate. It seems his family like the new look so much they have insisted he keeps his until after Christmas! Well done to all of you and for raising so much money for charity.
