haiku, which is a Japanese poetry style made up of three short lines. Because haikus are short and often use simple vocabulary, they are great for learners of English to read and write. I will teach you about the history of the haiku and how it is constructed. Some haikus have a very deep philosophical meaning despite being so short, which is why they are so interesting. By the end of the lesson, I hope you’ll be inspired to write a haiku of your own and post it in the EngVid comments section!
