Some passive sentences   
When we have a long sentence to turn into passive voice sometimes I am not sure of the place of some of the words.. 
For example: I have to choose the place to see it, I think it is : the best place to see has to be chosen by me. Other example: his company will send him abroad on business, I think it is: he will be sent abroad on business by his company. The place of the  agent is the element I doubt about.

Caption Contest   
Les, thank you so much for choosing my caption as the winner! 
Here is the next picture for your captioning pleasure, fellow ESL Printables fans! I ´ll pick a winner either when the picture leaves the forum, or when I get a good selection of hilarity! (Hmm, picture came in at the top instead of where I wanted it. I ´m too lazy to redo it.)

Not sure if people are up to playing the daffynitions game   
Thanks Maryse for choosing my daffynitions.
There was low participation in the last round.
The new word I suggest is Funambulation.
Feel free to offer your funny made up definition. Or if there is no interest, we can retire the game for a while.

winner of the word daffinition   
How dare you say I am saying TARADIDDLE ?!?!?!
Yes ! You are right ! TARADIDDLE means : someone or something filled with pretentions, nonsense or something that is a lie.
And the winner is REDCAMAROCRUISER with its reference to a tiara and its decoration... Its reminds me when I was a little girl full of dreams...
Great thanks for the laughter too ;)
And Les I LOVE your daffinitions ! And I am not the only one... Just a wink to the song that I love too : IMAGINE.
Please keep on writing them !
Hugs to all.

Ladybird Peter and Jane books   
Has anyone ever used the Ladybird keywords scheme (Peter and Jane) and have you any advice etc.

16 Jan 2018

United Kingdom

I bought the Peter and Jane Keywords Scheme Books for my son, Mark, when he was 2. (That was about 50 years ago.)
I used them to teach him to read. (I was NOT a trained Teacher, then.)
I simply followed their written teaching advice. We read together every evening, before bed, for about 15 minutes. He loved it.
They were Excellent.
When he was 3 he could recognise words, and could read simple sentences.
He, (NOT I),  discovered two tiny typographical errors.
I wrote to Ladybird to inform them. They replied that they knew about one error, but no-one had ever noticed the second error.
Laughing, they offered my son a job as a proof-reader, when he was 18.
In my opinion, in my situation, the Ladybird Key Word Scheme, (using the Peter and Jane books), was excellent.
Les Douglas.
