October marks Halloween, and this issue of Bridge not only features an article on its origins, but also a handful of “spooky” idioms and tips on cult horror movies that are perfect for watching during this time of the year. We’ll travel to sunny Arizona and, thanks to the Webb Telescope, also into the depths of space, we will celebrate the BBC’s centenary and shine a light on the Sandman comic strip, which was recently made into a hugely successful TV series. We’ll also take a closer look at the computer programmes that can draw anything based on a text with instructions – including our October cover. On the occasion of the national holiday on 28 October, we present an article about Czech personalities who have made a name for themselves abroad. And in addition to the Maturita practice, this time you will also find several pages of B2 level activities. Enjoy your autumn reading!
