Have you ever heard of Gymglish? It’s a website with a great sense of humour, which offers personalized English courses through e-mails.
Every day, ‘each lesson introduces you to a new chapter of the Delavigne saga in San Francisco, Business English, a variety of accents and more.’
What’s more? Every month, Gymglish examines a word and gives its definition. And guess what the word was in May 2015?
Please note: we’ve added a few links in the Gymglish extract below, to our selection of Stories about the word Blue.
Blue: The color of the sky + sea (- pollution).
To have the blues, to be blue: Sadness.
“The Blues“: Music about said sadness.
Ironically, blues is traditionally black.
