stolen words

23rd Feb (English as a foreign language, intermediate, 15 students, Ealing and West London College)




The reading for today

thieves attempt to
steal diamonds
from Millennium
Dome caught
by 200 police guns
in bin liners.

Questions include:

When class is
dead I

in my groin
in my scrotum
in my temples
