PEARTREE LIFE: Experiencing Languages

Will you be my Valentine?

All you need is love, love is in the air, love me like you do… it’s Valentine’s Day! 

Are you the apple of someone’s eye? Are you smitten? Do you have a crush?

Let’s share some love and learn some English language idioms related to that lovely four letter word ‘LOVE.’!

Today’s toast was a Valentine breakfast...sweets for the sweetest students ;-)
