宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン 25: Summer vacation fun!
How was your summer vacation? Fun I hope.
We went camping in Takachiho and had a great time. It was my first time to go there and it is a very beautiful place. We visited many shrines, had a relaxing bath in a hot spring, watched the stars at night and saw the “sea of clouds”. When we were there, my son Sena was very lucky because he was given a deer antler! His photo is the first one and this week I’ve been showing it to all my students! It’s very interesting and the first time for many people (including me) to touch a real deer antler.
In English we say “antler” for deer, moose and reindeer, but “horn” for other animals such as rhinoceros, dinosaurs, cows and goats. For elephants we say “tusks”, because they are actually teeth.
Please enjoy the rest of summer!
