Contrary to a generally accepted idea teenagers LIKE reading. But sometimes they are at a loss when they have to choose another book to read. Their parents’, friends’ and teachers’ advice might help them, but there is another way.
A website I’ve come across today just needs the title and/or author of the latest book you’ve read to publish a list of books you are likely to enjoy.
I’ve tried and it came up with a list of books I hadn’t read, but by authors I am familiar with and I like.
So now, it’s your turn ! Click, and then leave a comment here to tell us what you think.
Prove you can beat a computer !
Go there : http://www.20q.net/index.html
And try to think of something or someone unusual enough to catch their software out !
You can do that in the language of your choice. Isn't that clever?
Edit : How to play. Choose the language in which you want to think. American or British of course ! You don't have to give your name and gender, it'll work all the same. Then, choose a game. Why not start with Classic 20Q ? Then click on the answer that is the closest to the truth. If you lie, you'll spoil the game...

And if you enjoy one of these concerts, or all of them, please send us an article ! We'll publish it.
There are many dictionaries you can use at the school library. But sometimes, at home, you're busy on your computer, and there's no room to open a big book next to you. Or you think a dictionary is expensive.
Then you can go to:
to get a translation from French into English, or from English into French. You just have to type the word that's puzzling you and choose a dictionary, then click "Enter". That's it !
Or you can go to:
Choose your source on the left. You may get a synonym, some quotes containing the word you're looking for, its pronuncitaion in British or American English, and many other things !
That's a much better idea than using translation engines.
