Thinking of you, Italy!

WE’RE THINKING OF YOU, ITALY!

This morning I woke up to hear the news about another earthquake in Italy. I know what you’re going through, Italy. I also survived an earthquake when I was visiting Christchurch, New Zealand. It’s very scary to go through the shaking and then shocking to see all the destruction of your surrounding, beautiful city. I also remember a summer of aftershocks that made it difficult to sleep at night.

Italy is very special to me. I received my certificate to teach English as a foreign language in Firenze. I taught my first English classes in Roma. I love the Italian people. They are wonderful, passionate, friendly people!

I wish you well, Italy! Everyone with Language on Vacation has you in their thoughts. Take care!

IDIOM – into high gear

INTO HIGH GEAR

(idiom) – faster and more powerful speed

Example #1:
Student #1:  I want to quickly improve my speaking skills but that’s difficult to do in my home country.
Student #2:  You should go to America and travel with Language on Vacation.  That will kick your speaking skills into high gear!

Example #2:
Athlete:  When I exercise, I start by walking.  After 5 minutes, I get into high gear and run as fast as I can.

Post your own example of *IN HIGH GEAR* in the comments section below.

When travelling with Language on Vacation, your first day in the United States of America will be an easy, relaxing day, but we get into high gear on Day 2 by studying English and travelling around the US.
