  1. Hi Anatoly, I was going through my students POST and came upon yours. What an excellent way to build your vocabulary by talking about experiences.

    Your Blog gave me the idea of having a class to just talk about experiences.

    I love the plant picture made by your daughter just as much as I enjoyed the information about lost luggage.

    Until my next POST, this is Priscilla with SEE
