"Ever ever after" ... eventually!

Better late than never!
Here is the song you wanted to listen to and its lyrics.
For a change, you can translate the lyrics into Spanish or Galician.

Then you can do last week's Unit, if you haven't finished it yet;
otherwise, you can practise your READING SKILLS.
Finally, try this easy game: Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?

Have a nice class!
