I know that you’ve waited for Thursday. Yes, today is the day of English (Anglish) comic strips by Mike Franklin!
As usual, we have fun, we laugh, we learn new words from the set of Malapropisms.
I’m glad for my students as all of us can learn something new every day. The best gift we can get from the language learning is to be able to understand different texts: written, audio, video information. The most appreciated benefit of the speaking the language is the satisfaction we can get from the humor.
As always, enjoy!

Now I’d like you to think. It won’t hurt, but there are some ideas we should consider deeper and make some conclusions.
Are the modern grammar schools more sophisticated than comprehensive?
Which differences do they represent?
Are our children smart only in their appearances or are they intelligent and thoughtful?
Let’s thank the dictionary for the new set of words.
