Good morning/ afternoon/ evening!
I wish you the best school days! September is the best month to remember that you study English. Though school time is not the best of the best, there still will be comic strips by Mike Franklin with grammar.net.
Today we’ll discover not only the malapropisms but the homonyms that sound completely the same as the word that has to be at this place.
The laugh is the best thing to study something new, to recall something forgotten and to learn new words. Let it be our help to survive the somber day at school or everywhere else! Have fun, and share your laugh with your friends.
As always, I give you a picture, the text, and the list of new words to study:
Nan see fan seed nice knew scarf
Two make her look more suite
This big won went down two her calf
And sum thymes reached her feat
Her pals a greed its love lee
It makes ewe look sew grate
Butt do bee care full when ure out
Bet ween steps ewe must weight
You could have a stub bull
If it went beneath ure feat
Ure buoy friend would just grum bull
If ewe did knot meat.
It’s go wing to bee a nod cud all for her buoy friend!
Did you like it? Did you get it? In case if you didn’t get it, look through the pronunciation of the words from the text (the British English dictionary would be better for the British comic strips), and you’ll understand. Now it’s time for further learning!
