English is funny indeed

Język angielski to bogactwo idiomów, kolokacji, phrasal verbs i wieloznaczności.
Twoje błędy leksykalne to już nie tylko BRAK zrozumienia! To zrozumienie na opak, komiczne i czasami dwuznaczne sytuacje. Pośmiej sie z cytowanych poniżej przykładów. A następnie wzmocnij swoją motywację, że nauka słownictwa jest przydatna!
