Hello alunos de Inglês e bem vindos a mais uma aula Inglêspetacular. Esta é uma aula intermediária e será ministrada em Inglês. Você iniciante pode usar as mesmas regras de pronúncia das minhas aulas básicas em Português.
In this intermediate English lesson about a hungry cat, you will acquire new vocabulary, pronunciation and conversation skills.
As a student I ate my meals at a seaside boarding-house. The landlady was a good cook and, as her husband was a fisherman, we always ate fish for dinner. Eventually I got tired of it, and started slipping it under the sofa, where the family cat would find and devour it.
This worked very successfully until one day the landlady tiptoed up behind me and said, “Young man it’s a good time to tell you that our cat was run over by a truck three weeks ago.”
