At the moment… Japan 1-0 Brazil
I’ve just heard about the Tamada’s goal for Japan team. Probably the situation will be different when I finish to write this post, but for the moment I can enjoy this unexpected result! Nothing against Brazil team but I like surprises which, in my opinion, are the funniest part of a sport competition. Maybe that’s less true when your own team is playing! In fact today I watched Italy vs Czech Republic with some friends of mine and, although the match wasn’t so spectacular, we really enjoyed our victory and our qualification!
Thank you, Rachel, for your tips and your comments; when I send my post I look forward to reading your answer. I don’t have an usual strategy to learn new words. Sometimes I meet a word that I don’t know but whose meaning is totally understandable from the context. In this case, if I’m absolutely certain of what the word means, I don’t use my dictionary (also because I’m quite lazy… eheh). Seeing a film I adore to memorize dialogs which I really like. For example I learnt the phrasal verb “to drop out” seeing Eyes Wide Shut… Kidman: ’He plays really good for a doctor’ Cruise: ‘He’s not a doctor, he dropped out!”. Maybe this passion will drive me mad!!!! However I’ve been reading ‘The Broker’ by John Grisham for three weeks. For the first five chapters I searched every new word in my dictionary but now the plot has become so much interesting that I prefer to read fast then understand all the words! My first English dictionary was bilingual but I used it only for few weeks. In fact I think it’s the worst way to learn new words.
Has your Father enjoyed his secondary school reunion? I think it’s fantastic to be able to see some friends who you aren’t been meeting for so many time (maybe 50 years… am I right?). I have to say that I don’t know much about my family history but I would like to find out more about it…
I’ve just heard about the final result: Japan 1-4 Brazil. What can I say… things change!
I’ve just read your new post, Rachel, I’m really in late today!!!! Although I always see the Entertainment part of BBC Learning English website I haven’t still seen the last one. I’m going to do that.
See you tomorrow!
