The weather has turned cold! Finally! But last Thursday I braved that cold to see Madonna in concert. What a talented woman! She says she's Italian. I'm not so sure, but she did speak a bit of Italian and made the crowd go crazy. But even when she spoke English the crowd responded. There's nothing like making that effort to interact with people, speaking their language. If Madonna can do it, so can you!!
My poor students! When I tell them "talk" is pronounced tok they don't believe me. Then I make them close their books. Then I make them use their dictionaries. Then I make them memorise, and repeat over and over and OVER again........ I think there's a proverb: Patience is a bitter plant, but its fruit is sweet. Let's keep on going......
