Dear Jasminade,

Thank you for the clear explaination.

Could you please post some examples of spoof which consists of more than ten sentences, like a short story?

Thanks in advance.

Where can I find true stories to use in class?

Dear teachers.

Can anybody recommend me a website which provides some true-story articles?

What I need :
1. The story is not too long.
2. The article is suitable for adult learners.
3. The vocabulary is suitable for low-level-adult- learners (not a must but preferable).

Thanks in advance.

Dear Jasminade and Peter.

Thank you very much for the explaination.

How about these?

I might/may be late.
Maybe I'll be late.


Do both sentences basically have the same meaning?

Thanks in advance.

You are the master.

You are from Ireland.

You are a native speaker.

Look at these sentences.

I might/may be late.
Maybe I am late.
