Today at VV News we're talking about how spring has sprung around the world, Hello Kitty and Cherry Blossom in San Fran, and photos from years of old (and not so old).
Here's the script of the first story for your reading pleasure. Members, yours is in your Inbox. Articles are linked right at the bottom. Right at the bottom.
Good morning, and welcome to Vocab Voyage News of the day. I've been a bit quiet. I've
been a bit busy. So here we go.
Cherry Blossoms, one of our subjects for April, so I thought I'd do a bit more of a news
thing on it. Not so much news today. I felt a bit bad. The last Vocab Voyage News
(on Cherry Blossoms) where I talked about how it was all going bad for the cherry
blossoms. So today, I'm just going to talk lovely stuff about the cherry blossoms.
Find out what we do. Find out how to get a free go for a month. Wow!
OK. So spring has sprung. Spring has sprung all around the world, in the northern
hemisphere anyway. Spring has most definitely not sprung in New Zealand. Autumn has
come around, and winter even. They had an Antarctic front come over the country, and my mate, he showed me it snowing outside (on Skype) out his window. I told him I didn't want to see snow anywhere, not even on my computer during the summer. I see enough
of it in winter. So the first place they look at...., they've got a whole bunch of nice
pictures of spring around the world. Not cherry blossoms exactly, but you've got
Patagonia you've got frogs, you've got Kamakura, you've got Suffolk (England), you've got
Northern Ireland, Barcelona, Horse chestnuts, and Canada. So there's some nice pictures there.
