IL BLOG DI DAISY – A nervous win for England

Il Blog di Daisy by Crystal Jones è in inglese ma la sua particolarità è duplice. Da un lato, se non capisci qualcuna delle parole o espressioni usate nel testo, puoi chiedere all’autrice che cosa vogliono dire. Dall’altro, se desideri provare a commentare il testo direttamente in inglese, puoi chiederci di avere la correzione dei tuoi eventuali errori. In questo caso, non dimenticare di aggiungere alla fine del tuo commento la sigla RCE (ossia, richiesta di correzione errori) .
