Hello everyone, a “storm was brewing” and it was “raining cats and dogs” last week, so I had to give you a “rain check” for the Saturday Accent Group.
The weather really “rained on my parade,” May 4 and the flood threat, “stole my thunder.” However, it now looks “as right as rain” and we will begin on Saturday, May 25, “come rain or shine.”
I hope you “saved your money for a rainy day,” so you can join the 6 week Accent Group Class on Tuesday, May 21, 6:30-8:00 p.m. or Saturday, May 25, 10:30-12:00 p.m. to improve your accent.
“Every cloud has a silver lining.” So, there’s still time to sign-up and learn how to sound more American. You will soon “be on cloud nine,” with the speaking techniques you’ll learn.
