What I did yesterday...
I would like to tell you my story of yesterday. We had the electricity cut off from 8 am to 4 pm. It rarely happens in our village, almost 2 or 3 times a year. I do not know the exact reason why we had the electricity cut off. In this modern life we cannot live without electricity. Yesterday I could not do the housework, I could not use the PC so I felt that I was restrained. I could not do anything so I decided to arrange some important things in town. In the morning we went to the hospital with my son because he needed to see his doctor. Do not worry, he is not ill, he only needed to go for controlling. Two days before in the hospital there was a false bomb warning. Fortunately, the authorities were on high alert, they checked everything in the hospital; ill people were evacuated and so on. So, yesterday the hospital was still under police supervision. I think people felt still intimidated because there were not as many people what we as would normally expect. We finished quite early, Peter went to school and we went home.
Of course, we still did not have electricity cut on so I went in the garden .To tell the truth my garden was full of weeds recently because I have neglected it since I have started blogging. I weeded my flowers and vegetable, I hoed, raked and so on. But time went very slowly yesterday. When I had done my work in the garden I went inside and started to read the book “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte in English. This book is not the original but it is rewritten in easy English for English learners. I thoroughly recommend these books for everybody who wants to spend time with learning English and have fun at the same time.
Finally, at 4pm we had the electricity back so I had a shower and I was in a hurry to take my first English lesson this year.
Our teacher is a young, kind, friendly person who loves teaching. He said a Chinese proverb: ”Tell me and I forget, Show me and I remember, Involve me and I understand”. He said that he teaches on the basis of this proverb. He comes from Ireland. There is 8-10 of us in the group. We are learning from an upper-intermediate level textbook. Yesterday we did not have book yet so he brought some photocopies and we read a story about the unique albino gorilla, Snowflake, who lived in the ZOO in Barcelona, Spain. Then we played a mime play. I think I will enjoy my English lessons again.
After my English lesson I prepared dinner for my family, I was able to wash up the dishes at last and I wrote my blog.
In conclusion, I would like to ask a question. Do you have any favourite words in English? If yes, what are they? I have a few words that I like such as lady bird, sunflower, butterfly and poppy seed. I have just noticed now that my all favourite words are related to nature.
I look forward to reading your comments. Bye, bye
