Esta lista veicula diariamente uma história, preferencialmente engraçada (afinal, quem não gosta de uma boa piada?), ou uma citação. As histórias estão em inglês, e as palavras mais incomuns são comentadas. Dessa forma os alunos aprendem, todos os dias, duas ou mais palavras novas. Todos os dias. Em um ano esse pequeno esforço diário pode vir a fazer uma grande diferença.
Essa lista está hospedada no serviço YahooGroups. O cadastramento nesta lista é livre e gratuito.
O histórico dessa lista, com todas as mensagens já veiculadas, está também disponível neste site.
