As every January, Maturita Special is here again: a double issue of Bridge magazine, in which you can try out the complete English maturita test: listening, language in use and reading exams plus a writing and speaking practice. We hope you’ll find the real Maturita a breeze. But of course, Maturita Special is not just about tests. What comes to mind when you say Washington? Probably the American capital, but we invite you to take a trip to the state of the same name on the west coast of the USA. As Valentine’s Day is celebrated in February, we’ve taken a look at different types of relationships, we have included a glimpse into the world of fashion, tips on new films and TV shows, and last but not least, a humorous post from one of our students inspired by our series on English-speaking countries from A to Z (which will continue in March). We wish you a pleasant reading and a successful start to the new year!
