I can delay no longer! After months of thinking about it and finding reasons to delay for a bit, I have finally stopped procrastinating and jumped into the blogosphere! So, may I present to you –
It means Let’s go! in Spanish and that seemed appropriate as I hope to encourage my colleagues (and the wider world!) to join the PLL train (as I heard it described at a CILT meeting earlier this year).

And of course, it’s well known to most pupils courtesy of a certain bilingual young lady who has taught so many children how to count, shout ‘watch out’ and name colours in Spanish. Yes, Dora the Explorer has a lot to answer for – and I for one owe her a debt of gratitude as it means pupils start with at least some idea of what I’m saying!!
So – ‘Come on! ¡ Vámonos! Everybody, let’s go. Come on! Let’s get to it! I know that you can do it!’
