    Today we discussed a topic about using cell phones while driving and learnt new words for this theme. We practiced speed reading of the text “How did Harper Seven get her Name?” and tried to find the right words and phrases according to their definitions. I got to know several words and phrases I have never used before. My partner shared her story about her bycicle stolen from her backyard, it was found later. I told her my story about my wallet that I left on a bush in Aqua Park in Spain. I found it on the same place. I was surprised that nobody took it. I really enjoyed the class today.
