Hello! For this week I am using the Valentine’s Day theme but, don’t worry it isn’t soppy* or too sweet!
Vocabulary *soppy = extremely sweet and over-emotional
A beautiful literary declaration of love.
This was said by Captain Wentworth in the book Persuasion by Jane Austen. He had loved her for years and was hoping finally she could care for him too.
- *to pierce = bring break through something with a knife or sharp instrument.
- *agony = terrible pain
Jane Austen books are fantastic and I really recommend them for women and men alike*.
*alike = both the same

2 Idioms for love – 1 good and 1 bad
Let’s start with the good one.
To be head over heels* literally means you fall and your head goes lower than your feet – like an acrobat jumping. In this idiom it means to be crazy about someone, to be very much in love. Have you ever been head over heels for someone?
Vocabulary * heels = the back part of your foot or shoe.
And now the bad one. When you are having troubles in your relationship you can say you are on the rocks or the relationship is on the rocks.. It doesn’t mean the relationship is definitely finished but it is a possibility.
