Household Chores

Household Chores:

"Doing housework is just a part of life that most people don't enjoy, but they realize it has to be done. Some people hire home cleaning services; the rest of us just do it ourselves. Listen to the words below and consult a dictionary if you need a definition. Write a sample sentence for each word to learn how it is used in context."


Eye in the Sky « allatc

Eye in the Sky « allatc:

"Joe Cocker’s version of “With a little help from my friends” is widely considered by music critics to be the greatest-ever cover version. For our first post of 2012, we‘ve gone for a radical revision of “Eye in the Sky” by Noa, she of the hauntingly beautiful voice. The original, of course, was by The Alan Parsons Project. Which will your class prefer? There’s also a lovely lead-in to see how much attention you and your students actually pay to the lyrics of your favourite songs…"

'Because Of You' by Kelly Clarkson



'Because of You' by Kelly Clarkson

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Learn English Words: Difference between "say," "tell," and "speak" | Espresso English

Learn English Words: Difference between "say," "tell," and "speak" | Espresso English:

"Tell / Told

Tell means “to give information to a person” – so tell (present) and told (past) are always followed by a person: me, you, him, her, us, them, John, Jane, the teacher, etc.

Examples:

Tell me about the movie. Did you like it?"

Isabel Allende (Writer/Feminist) | Amazing Women Rock

Isabel Allende (Writer/Feminist) | Amazing Women Rock:

"Isabel Allende is a master storyteller in the genre of magical realism. Her novels have been translated into 30 languages, and have sold more than 51 million copies worldwide.

Her list of honours, awards and accomplishments is truly staggering. But none of this, according to her, reflects who she is, or what has been important in her life.

Rather, she says: “My most significant achievements are not my books, but the love I share with a few people, especially my family, and the ways in which I have tried to help others.""
