This week I wish you a colourful and convivial week.
To practise your English why not share a colourful account of a convivial gathering you have attended.
And remember: not only can the same adjective have more than one meaning but, as always, if you don’t know the adjectives of the week you can look them up on www.dictionary.com and then use them here or in your next class!
A little something to think about when using English 🙂
Continuing on from yesterday, our thought today turns to the wonderful world of work.
As we have mentioned in a past post, in English you work on a project.
Seeing as variety is the spice of life (even when it comes to prepositions, it seems) you work in a sector but for a company.
Otherwise, you might be self employed, unemployed, retired or living a life of leisure somewhere near the sea… What sector do you work in or would like to work in? Tell us about it and practise your English!
Today’s word is cushy, an adjective we use to describe a job that is undemanding, easy and involves little effort for big rewards (and it may be useful to note that this word can have slightly pejorative connotations).
Mable, for example, has the cushy job of supervising the cushions here at The English Garden, yet is the first to complain about how hard she works.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a cushy job?
Do you have one?
Would you like one?
