Rain or Shine Revisited

Feel the 80’s vibes! Here’s a song using our latest idiom of the week – the lyrics are both in the video and below:

Rain or Shine

by Five Star

You’re my knight in shining armour
Chase the devil and the dragons away
From manana to manana
Do I am love you, yes I do do
Storm or sun
You’re the only one and this is how I feel

Rain or shine, you’ll always be
One in a million, my fantasy come true
Rain or shine, it’s you and me
Cut me a heart on a tree and say, it’s for ever not a year and a day

Robin Hood and Major Tom
All the super heroes rolled into one
Kiss away my sad and lonelies
Do I am love you, yes I do do
Silk and steel
That’s the way you feel, and how I love you now

Rain or shine, you’ll always be
One in a million, my fantasy come true
Rain or shine, it’s you and me
Cut me a heart on a tree and say, it’s for ever, not a year and a day
How I love you still

How I love you now
How I love you now
Rain or shine, you’ll always be
One in a million, my fantasy come true
Rain or shine, it’s you and me
Cut me a heart on a tree and say from me to you

Rain
Shine
Rain
Shine
Rain or shine, you’ll always be
One in a million, my fantasy come true
Rain or shine, it’s you and me

Rain or shine
Fantasy comes true
Rain or shine
Rain or shine
Fantasy comes true

HSE Class Finishes with Success!

Not everyone has the chance to finish high school in the United States or in their country. For students looking for the option to later enroll in college or just want to strengthen their resume, HSE (High School Equivalency) is a good option.

Led by our amazing counselor, Chris, HSE students worked hard this summer and finished up their class this week having learned a lot. Specifically, they improved their reading, writing and math skills through the content areas of science, social studies and literature.

We wish all of our students good luck and can’t wait to see what their next move will be.

Subject-Verb Agreement

Singular subjects take singular verbs and plural subjects take plural verbs.

Here are some common errors:

1. There are two or more subjects, so you think the verb needs to be plural.

2. There is more than one noun before the verb, so you make the verb agree with the wrong one.

3. There is a pronoun in the sentence that makes it confusing whether to use a singular or plural verb.

Examples:

1. The cat and dog are friends.

Cat and dog are singular, but together they form a plural subject.

2. The keys in the door are stuck.

Door is a singular noun, but is not the subject.

3. Any of them is fine for use in the rain.

Any refers to just one object in a bunch.

Try It:

1. Friday and Saturday ____ my favorite days of the week.

a. is

b. are

2. The library with many computers ____ a good place to study.

a. is

b. are

3. Communities with a park ____ important to have.

a. is

b. are

4. I will take whichever bus ____ first.

a. come

b. comes
