Did it bring any memories from your childhood?
From your own life?
I personally love this text.
The first time I read it I was in the subway in NYC and it really touched me...
Impossible to forget!
What about you? Did you like it?
Haven't you read it, yet?
Give it a try! Read it and (hopefully) enjoy it!
"Best readings and writings",
Watch these videos and share your thoughts!
Maybe because you just want to help someone...
Do you know the difference between "sinking" and "thinking"?
or because you hate subtitles...
How would you feel if they used subtitles when you spoke?
or you feel you need to improve your pronunciation...
How do you feel about different accents? I confess it is still hard for me to understand Brazilian accent for instance. What about you?
or need to broaden your vocabulary...
Sometimes words can lead to misunderstandings and great jokes!
or because you want to understand some songs (well in fact it's German, but it's still funny!)...
or understand the lyrics at a different level...
Enjoy, laugh and share your thoughts!
