"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    today i learn some grammer

    All, each, every
    Quantifiers

    In this session we look at the words all, each, every, both, either and neither. We call them quantifiers: words that give us information about the number or amount of something.
    1) All or All the is followed by a plural or uncountable noun. Every and each are followed by a singular noun.

    All the students have their own rooms.
    All the information about accommodation is on our website.
    Every student has their own room.
    Each student has their own room.
    2) Every and each can often be used in the same place, but we prefer every when we are thinking about the whole number in a group, and each when we are thinking about the members of the group as individuals.

    Every room has Wi-Fi. Each one has a different view.
    3) To emphasise the individual members of a group, use every not each.

    I was too late to apply for accommodation. Every room in the building is already taken.
    4) For only two things, we can use each but not every.

    The university has two student dormitories, with about 1,000 students in each building.
    5) All and each but not every can be followed by of + a plural noun or pronoun. Notice that each of with a plural noun or pronoun is followed by a singular verb.

    All of the students have a phone in the room.
    Each of them has a phone in their room.

    Today,i find a word which is unknown to me! i make it as sticky notes on my laptop.
    the word is "errands" meaning a short journey undertaken in order to receive something or deliver something.

    e.g. "She asked Tim to run an errands for her".
