  • On busy trains you can’t fold your newspaper or turn the pages.
  • Stories are cut between the front page and the middle pages.
  • Simon reads the headlines in the front page and the sports news on the back page whereas Todd is frustrated because he can’t read the whole article.
  • They both read the news everyday, but Simon prefers sports news to world news.
  • Todd agrees that world news are always bad.
  • They both have trouble reading on crowded trains when they go to work.
  • On Tuesday we posted our articles on the blog.
  • It was difficult because the Internet connection was horribly slow !

I don’t use any headphones because I don’t have any!

I need my headphones to relax.

I only use my headphones at home when I watch videos.

I usually use my headphones in the morning to be in a good mood.

I always use my headphones to go to school.

I use my headphones whenever and wherever except in the classroom.
