By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    @JohnVan - English isn't formulaic. You need to take what you have learnt, and practise in different situations. Play with it, have fun with it, and create sentences that are all your own work.

    I think the only way to learn things is to keep practicing, and to use English in as many situations as you can. You are sure to notice improvement if you choose to do this!

    When I try to say something, I often have a situation where some people understand me and some don’t. Also, as I understand, not all people, for example, with one cashier at Costco, we have a chit chat, and with another cashier at WinCo, we get to know each other and just smile because I don’t understand her, and she’s me and we gave up trying . Why it happens?

    When I visited New York once, I was surprised to find so many people couldn't understand my British accent. It was very weird. But a lot of people just did not seem to be able to get my British English accent. And I can't say I always understood them very well either. So I wouldn't worry about it @Julianna.

    @JohnVan, when I was starting to learn English I tried to remember single words, but now I find it far better and faster to learn combined words or phrases.

    And each new word or phrases should be wrapped in a sentence asasp.
