    Some headlines are funny and deceptive , once a headline in a paper from Lebanon says '' Baghdad on Fire !, the full story is ,the weather in Baghdad is so hot that it exceeds '' 50 centigrade '

  17. さほり丸橋 says:

    I will be moving to Cambridge MA very soon with my family from Singapore. I was born in Japan and grew up for 33 years. I had lived in Cambridge for 2 years before we had a son and I learned a practical English in a language school. However, it wasn't enough time to say I have come to be fluent in English and I've kept learning it.  This moving would be more challenge and excited for all of us because it wouldn't be a temporary but long term for living there. I look forward to bumping into you in the town !! Thank you for updating very helpful lessons !

    The headline from ABC is :Alleged suspect captured in Tennessee deputy's killing. My vision is: The alleged suspect was captured in Tennessee deputy's killing.
