A VERY WARM WELCOME to our new Tutors; Tessy, Ken, Jianan, Agnieszka, and Naasir. PALS is very excited to start new programs with you 😊 and a big thank you to all our current tutors for your big support 😊.


Finally, before we go, here is a fun English Idiom for you:

Hold your horses!

When someone tells you to “hold your horses,” they’re not asking you to find a horse to hold onto. Instead, they’re advising you to stay calm or slow down. This phrase dates to ancient times, even appearing in Homer’s Iliad. Originally literal, it’s now used figuratively to urge someone to be patient or cautious.

Meaning: It’s a reminder to be patient or careful.

Example: “Hold your horses! I’m not paying up yet; the game’s far from over!”
