Some my students who were born with silver spoons never know how to respect people and to be silver -tongued. Initially, I felt extremly frustrated of teaching those who slighted people. Then, I came up with some ideas to deal with these situations to see if they are useful. Finally, they worked and those studnets are becoming polite to people. If I met these troublesome circumstances again I would know how to overcome them, so every cloud has a silver lining.

Due to unemployment and poor English speaking,one man who was an immigrant from Vietnam shot people in the immigration office of New York one month ago.

Valerie, Ukraine
One friend of mine is really silver-tongued at times. When she wants me to do something for her she begans to speak in such a sweet way! It sometimes is quite funny taking into account that normally she doesn't speak so :) Another my friend was made redundant unexpectadely and was very upset as today it's quite difficult to find a job. But while he was looking for a new one he found out that he didn't like the work he'd been doing for the last years and decided that he should change not only the place of work but also the type of work. And now he is happy with his new and very different occupation. So, as we can see, every cloud has a silver lining. And dear Teacher, thank you for you lessons! It's so easy to study (and remember!) English idioms with you!

Elena, Russia
