Autumn is here 3
Autumn is here when the giant lotus leaves turn brown.
To those of you from America, you call the season after summer fall, we call Autumn.
When I teach ESOL, English Speakers of languages, often I have to explain different terms used for various things.
Today, I explained after eating in the restaurant, in America, you ask for the check. In Britain and here in New Zealand, we ask for the bill, and in a less posh place, we ask for the docket.
English is very confusing, say my students from Peru and Chile.
