You might not be celebrating Saint Valentines day but 14th of February seems to be a good day to revise some love idioms.
I've chosen nine; not to overwhelm you :)

Also, you can practise these expression on Quizlet - HERE
If idioms were too easy for you, why don't we try some Shakespeare.
Here, you have the sonnet 116 text and just right below Sir Patrick Steward is reading it just for you :)
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
This month we'll focus on our listening skills. And you'll also be able to sing a bit if you're up for it. The whole idea of this task is not completely new as we already did the similar task last year. If you want you can check the whole quiz 🔴HERE🔴.
The choice of the songs in this year's challenge comes up with a short story. A few weeks ago I was binge watching one of my favourite series ever. It's old, even ancient for today's standards, very quirky and packed with good but long forgotten music. The songs, however, are so optimistic, cheerful and funny that listening to them immediately put me into good mood. Inspired by the series, I started browsing my Spotify to find more 60's or 60's like music. And then I thought that I really wanted to share this with you guys.
I guess I don't need to tell you that we can learn a lot from songs - of course here in this task we'll be mostly listening to a few seconds of audio clips to get the lyrics but I do encourage you to take this exercise a step further - listen to the whole song; check the words or expressions you're not familiar with, sing a refrain or even dance to it - soooo many possibilities!
The extracts will be published 3 times a week (Monday- Wednesday- Friday)
Try to check the page regularly.
OK, let me give you a set of instructions so you wouldn't feel lost.
