  • Hello,
    Here is for you a nice song I usualy sing for the kids:
    "Paddling in the puddles, paddling in the puddles,
    paddling in the puddles, but don't let Mummy see!"
    I found it in "The little Puffin" the book for rhymes and songs for kids.
    Thank you, I add the word "poodle" to my vocab!
    The song could be "paddling like a poodle,..."

    From Ba:
    Hi Catherine!
    only because I have just studied the rules of the present perfect*
    not---> I did'nt never go in England
    but---> I have never been in England




    - *one of them:
    use the present perfect --->have done<---
    with: just/already/yet... never/ever (how long...)


    - also e careful about double negations
    - be instead of go I'm not able to explain why. Well... is it right?
