Close your eyes and imagine lying in a beautiful forest, under a clear, dark sky and gazing at the hundreds and hundreds of glowing stars. Then you see a flashing light fly across the sky and you realize it's a shooting star!
What wish do you make? :)
If you're wishing for better English, we can help you out with that because it's time for another new English podcast (yay!) Join us as we talk about star gazing as a common activity, especially in the fall months as nights get longer and camping by a warm fire seems perfect. Enjoy!
