Speaking

Yesterday in the morning I took my son to school to learn English. I just told my wife you is a very good English teacher so my wife ask me why don’t send my son become your student. I don’t know is it a good suggestion because I’m afraid my son couldn’t understand the full English. Then when my son in the class, I do my homework. The weekly report. Per week. And afternoon I attend a wedding with my family. The groom is my brother / good friend. He is a little famous advertising officer because he was employed from the Ogivly. I’m so glad for his wedding. In the evening I took my family back to my wife’s parents home at the 11 o’clock PM. So it’s so tired.
