Grammar ~ Practising with Phrasal Verbs

Well, following my promise a while ago, I have added a new exercise to our last lesson on separable and inseparable phrasal verbs. Please find this lesson at the bottom of the Phrasal Verbs - Separable/Inseparable page. I hope you will find the time to send me a copy of your sentences.

Writing ~ The Metaphor as a Figure of Speech

Last time we started to talk about three figures of speech. Today let us look in more detail at the first one and the most important - the metaphor. Please find some examples on the Metaphor page. We shall enlarge on the other categories in some of our future lessons, but enjoy this one for now.

English for Travelling ~ Preliminary Information

Last time we considered a few ideas of what you can talk/write about a country to a friend you're inviting over. What else can you share with your future visitor? Find some new suggestions on the page on the page I prepared for you on Preliminary Information for a Visit . I wonder if you are starting by now to think about making pen pals with whom you could practise some of the English you're spending so much effort to learn. Please let me know. Better still, write back and contribute to these pages - they are after all yours to enjoy together.

This is it for now, my friends!

I hope you find this information useful and not too confusing. Even though you're at the stage of building on it, have patience at this point in your learning and you'll be able to reap the fruit of your work later on, whichever aspect of our lessons you are concentrating on.

Please feel free to comment and suggest your ideas by replying to this email - I look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to chat either with me or with other members worldwide, go to My English Club .

All the best from me until next time,

Lucia da Vinci

Founder of My English Club
