This is a NASA photo which shows an area of space where new stars (like our Sun) are being born. Makes me feel so small.
Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, but it is not the capital (that’s Ottawa).
And it has this amazing skyline dominated by one of the world’s highest structures, the CN Tower, which is more than 600m tall.
On the longest day of the year, June 21st, the sunrise at Stonehenge occurs at about 4.30am.
If you stand in the centre of the ring of standing stones then you will see the sun rise directly over the Heelstone, which is a little outside the circle
Whether Stonehenge was an ancient clock or calendar, or even a burial ground or whatever is not known for sure, but the sunrise on the summer solstice is quite a magical moment.
There has been a lot of argument about the new World Cup ball.
Let’s change it and go back to the old one.
Me to students: “For this exercise you can use dictionaries, phones, in fact anything is OK”
Student: “Please tell me the answers”.
Student: “You said anything is OK”!
A beautiful sky over the Isle of Skye in Scotland, a great range of colour.
There are no tricks here. This is a horizontal rainbow I saw in Izu a few weeks ago.
And it was not raining, and I was facing the sun.
A model of a giant gorilla made of ……. metal coat hangers.
I took this photo in Itoh in Izu. The azaleas were just past their best, but still an amazing sight.
Most rainbows are shaped like a bridge in the sky, but this rainbow that I saw in Izu last month is the wrong way round.
I have no idea how this rainbow was formed (it was not raining at the time).
We were looking at a few verbs today, like ‘take, took, taken’ and ‘drink, drank, drunk’, and one of my students suddenly said ‘swim, swim, swimming’! And it made me think. Why are English verbs so difficult? If my students answer was the real answer then it would be so much easier.
BTW the answer is ‘swim, swam, swum’, unfortunately.
Recently a volcano started to erupt in Ecuador. It looks an incredible sight in this photo but it caused many people to leave their homes.
