by means of our short rhymes and illustrations!


The cheetah is a great big cat
But very quick, for all of that,
She's cunning but she's gentle, too,                
And if you're good she's good to you.


The puma is a bandit who'll not meet you face to face
But waits to spring upon you from some well-hidden place.
He'll strike you when your back is turned, but away he's sure to fly
If you should turn to look him right squarely in the eye.


"I'm stopping for a moment just to say 'How-do-you-do?'
I've just been decorated with this ribbon of deep blue
Because of all the gracefulness with which I trot and prance—
No wonder that you give Sir Horse your most admiring glance!"


Milk or meat or leather for shoes,—
Almost anything that we choose,—
We'll find the good Cow gives with joy
To every nice little girl and boy.


See, with long tail but scanty mane,
The Zebra gallops over the plain.


Elephants are big in size,
But it’s well known they are wise.


We all at Monkeys love to gaze,
And watch their funny tricks and ways.

~ Little Red Riding Hood ~

Let's Read this st0ry !

Little Red Riding Hood (^_^)v

Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by every one who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child. Once she gave her a little hood of red velvet, which suited her so well that she would never wear anything else. So she was always called Little Red Riding Hood.

One day her mother said to her:
“Come, Little Red Riding Hood, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine. Take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good. Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path, or you may fall and break the bottle, and then your grandmother will get nothing. And when you go into her room, don't forget to say good-morning, and don't peep into every corner before you do it”.
“I will take great care, said Little Red Riding Hood to her mother”, and gave her hand on it.

The grandmother lived out in the wood, half a league from the village, and just as Little Red Riding Hood entered the wood, a wolf met her. She did not know what a wicked creature he was, and was not at all afraid of him.
"Good-day, Little Red Riding Hood," said he.
"Thank you kindly, wolf."
"Whither away so early, Little Red Riding Hood?"
"To my grandmother's."
"What have you got in your apron?"
"Cake and wine. Yesterday was baking-day, so poor sick grandmother is to have something good, to make her stronger."
"Where does your grandmother live, Little Red Riding Hood?"
"A good quarter of a league farther on in the wood. Her house stands under the three large oak-trees, the nut-trees are just below. You surely must know it," replied Little Red Riding Hood.

The wolf thought to himself, what a tender young creature. What a nice plump mouthful, she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both. So he walked for a short time by the side of Little Red Riding Hood, and then he said, "see Little Red Riding Hood, how pretty the flowers are about here. Why do you not look round. I believe, too, that you do not hear how sweetly the little birds are singing. You walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry."
Little Red Riding Hood raised her eyes, and when she saw the sunbeams dancing here and there through the trees, and pretty flowers growing everywhere, she thought: “Suppose I take grandmother a fresh nosegay. That would please her too. It is so early in the day that I shall still get there in good time.” And so she ran from the path into the wood to look for flowers. And whenever she had picked one, she fancied that she saw a still prettier one farther on, and ran after it, and so got deeper and deeper into the wood.

Meanwhile the wolf ran straight to the grandmother's house and knocked at the door.
"Who is there?"
"Little Red Riding Hood," replied the wolf. "She is bringing cake and wine. Open the door."
"Lift the latch," called out the grandmother, "I am too weak, and cannot get up."
The wolf lifted the latch, the door sprang open, and without saying a word he went straight to the grandmother's bed, and ate her. Then he put on her clothes, dressed himself in her cap, laid himself in bed and drew the curtains.

Little Red Riding Hood, however, had been running about picking flowers, and when she had gathered so many that she could carry no more, she remembered her grandmother, and set out on the way to her.
She was surprised to find the cottage-door standing open, and when she went into the room, she had such a strange feeling that she said to herself: “oh dear, how uneasy I feel today, and at other times I like being with grandmother so much”. She called out, "good morning," but received no answer. So she went to the bed and drew back the curtains. There lay her grandmother with her cap pulled far over her face, and looking very strange.

"Oh, grandmother," she said, "what big ears you have."
"The better to hear you with, my child," was the reply.
"But, grandmother, what big eyes you have," she said.
"The better to see you with," my dear.
"But, grandmother, what large hands you have."
"The better to hug you with."
"Oh, but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have."
"The better to eat you with."
And scarcely had the wolf said this, than with one bound he was out of bed and swallowed up Red Riding Hood.

When the wolf had appeased his appetite, he lay down again in the bed, fell asleep and began to snore very loud. The huntsman was just passing the house, and thought to himself, how the old woman is snoring. I must just see if she wants anything.
So he went into the room, and when he came to the bed, he saw that the wolf was lying in it. “Do I find you here, you old sinner,” said he. “I have long sought you.” Then just as he was going to fire at him, it occurred to him that the wolf might have devoured the grandmother, and that she might still be saved, so he did not fire, but took a pair of scissors, and began to cut open the stomach of the sleeping wolf. When he had made two snips, he saw Little Red Riding Hood shining, and then he made two snips more, and the little girl sprang out, crying: "Ah, how frightened I have been. How dark it was inside the wolf." And after that the grandmother came out alive also, but scarcely able to breathe. Red Riding Hood, however, quickly fetched great stones with which they filled the wolf's belly, and when he awoke, he wanted to run away, but the stones were so heavy that he collapsed at once, and fell dead.

Then all three were delighted. The huntsman drew off the wolf's skin and went home with it. The grandmother ate the cake and drank the wine which Red Riding Hood had brought, and revived, but Red Riding Hood thought to herself: "as long as I live, I will never by myself leave the path, to run into the wood, when my mother has forbidden me to do so."

. The Best Way to Learn English Grammar .

A person who is attempting to learn English grammar quickly realizes that there are many rules and many exceptions to these rules in the English language. For some, doing grammar exercises can be a helpful way to learn those grammar rules. Others find that immersing themselves in the language allows them to obtain the skills needed without doing intense study. For many others, an approach that incorporates parts of both of these methods is most effective.

Pay Attention

  • Because most people who are actively learning English grammar are those who speak other languages, they have an advantage because they can compare and contrast English to their native language. Pay attention to the way grammar is used in everyday speech and writing. For example, think about the way verbs are used when a person speaks. Compare the use of verbs in English to the use of verbs in your native language. In some foreign languages, each verb conjugates in dozens of different ways and has a perfect and imperfect form.

  • Read Books

  • Read a lot of books, magazines and newspapers. Although reading may not seem like an effective grammar-learning activity, the fact is that the more you read, the more you are able to see sentences that are grammatically correct. Seeing these grammatically correct sentences will allow you to be able to keep the things you read in mind as you speak and write. Even if you do not know how you learned some things, you can know it is very likely that the skills gained will have come from reading.

  • Work Meticulously

  • Work on one specific grammar challenge at the time. Although you should continually learn different aspects of English grammar, one of the best ways to overcome challenges is to focus on one challenge at a time. For example, if you are having trouble saying verbs in the past tense, focus on conjugating these verbs properly throughout the day. If you find that you do not know how to put a specific verb into past tense, resolve that you will find the answer each time a question comes up during the day. After some time, you will be able to master putting verbs into past tense and can move on to the next challenge with other grammar problems that you may be having.

  • Listen to Yourself

  • Record yourself speaking and play back the recording to listen if there are some mistakes that you might be making. After listening to your speech, and writing down the mistakes that you have heard, ask a native speaker to listen to your recording and write down the mistakes he hears. Compare these two lists to better understand which skills you still need to work on.

    The Gerund

    Recognize a gerund when you see one.

    Every gerund, without exception, ends in ing. Gerunds are not, however, all that easy to identify. The problem is that all present participles also end in ing. What is the difference?
    Gerunds function as nouns. Thus, gerunds will be subjectssubject complements,direct objectsindirect objects, and objects of prepositions.
    Present participles, on the other hand, complete progressive verbs or act as modifiers.
    Read these examples of gerunds:
    Since Francisco was five years old, swimming has been his passion.
    Swimming = subject of the verb has been.
    Francisco's first love is swimming.
    Swimming = subject complement of the verb is.
    Francisco enjoys swimming more than spending time with his girlfriend Diana.
    Swimming = direct object of the verb enjoys.
    Francisco gives swimming all of his energy and time.
    Swimming = indirect object of the verb gives.
    When Francisco wore dive fins to class, everyone knew that he was devoted to swimming.
    Swimming = object of the preposition to.
    These ing words are examples of present participles:
    One day last summer, Francisco and his coach were swimming at Daytona Beach.
    Swimming = present participle completing the past progressive verb were swimming.
    A great white shark ate Francisco's swimming coach.
    Swimming = present participle modifying coach.
    Now Francisco practices his sport in safe swimming pools.
    Swimming = present participle modifying pools.
