Sometimes English learning can be boring, so there are some interesting programs in the English Corner, which was held on October 16th, to activate everyone’s interest in learning English.
In the first section they learnt “Food idioms”. With attractive pictures shown in the screen, they learnt ten food idioms together, such as piece of cake(=something easy), to go bananas(= to become crazy), bring home the bacon(=to earn money), have bigger fish to fry(=have more important things to do ),like two peas in a pod(very similar), eat like a horse(=eat a lot), as red as a cherry(= very red)…… All these idioms are very useful in our daily life. Next section is for oral English. They learnt how to convey “Thank you” or “Sorry” and how to answer them in different ways. Some of us may be confused how to respond “Thank you” or “Sorry” in English at times. After this section, they had a better understanding of the differences. At last, they had a test to check whether or not they had benefitted from the English Corner.
