We’re sure you have at least one of them and that you use it most days - yes, this week we’re talking all about ... bags. And! It turns out that one half of the team, Jennifer, knows a thing or two about the topic and so Dan, the other half, learns a lot :) We’re sure you’ll learn a lot too - not just about bags but also English vocabulary and everyday expressions.
The language focus is about adjective order and why we say ‘a beautiful, big, leather bag’ and NOT ‘a leather, beautiful, big bag’. Enjoy!
