There's only one thing I can write about today and you all know what it is. I'm not American, but what happens in the USA affects us all. Waking up this morning for me was like waking up on June 24th this year, to hear that Britain had voted to leave the EU.
All I can say is, France, I'm counting on you now.
On a lighter note, there is some useful vocabulary in the cartoon above.
First of all I want you to guess the following words without looking in a dictionary:
scrap and ditch - can you guess what both of these mean?
How about ban?
And look at the election is rigged. If you've been following the US election campaigns, you'll have a good idea what rigged means.
This is a good exercise for you to see that if you have the context for new words, you can often guess (correctly) at their meanings. As your English gets better, you need to practise this more and more as it will help you understand the nuances of English.
My blog has changed! If you're looking for my English-practice exercises, they're all still here, just look in the archives.
