    This is lovely!

    Here is a haiku-inspired English poem, In a Station of the Metro:

    The apparition of these faces in the crowd:
    Petals on a wet, black bough.

      Here is another verse written by the same poet.
      .
      ***
      MEDITATIO
      When I carefully consider the curious habits of dogs
      I am compelled to conclude
      That man is the superior animal.

      When I consider the curious habits of man
      I confess, my friend, I am puzzled.

      (Ezra Pound)

    Hi~ so, in the start of video the first method used by James is the >gap< between two words,remember? in the first example it was between the words tree and chair ^^ you can choose five words, for example, to create a sentence that makes sense and put in the gap

Thanks a lot for that fun lesson. I got 8 out of 10. I don’t understand why “falls” is wrong in the nine sentence. May be if I had written “falls down”, it’ll be right. Thank you to make my question clear. Keep it up, your lessons are very useful for mastering my English. Have a good day. Marie-Claude

Wednesday, June 15th 2016
