Wordle Wednesday: Buildings & Places

Standard

Next week one of the buildings in the county town of Northampton will be demolished; I have been travelling in and out of this building since I was at least sixteen; when I was attending college. This building is the Greyfriars Bus Station. I thought that I would pay homage to this building; many local people felt that it was a horrid sight and needed to be re-built. Alas; this has happened. I have not been in this new bus station (nor the new train station). This is why this week’s theme for Wordle Wednesday is “Buildings & Places”.

Wordle Wednesday: Adverbs of Time

Standard

I have always been interested in time; it is a concept that will always need to be learnt – no matter what age or level of English a person has. I have found that working with Deaf students for the last seven years that ‘time’ is a hard concept to grasp. I think that this is a shame; as the students are not given the information to broaden their vocabulary. This is why I thought that ‘time’ should be used for this week’s theme for Wordle Wednesday.

  • after

  • before
