English around us

A world of words

Ice cream

Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate…. we all enjoy this iced dessert found in Marco Polo’s descriptions from his travels in China. In “Down by Law” , the story of three different men in a prison and their eventual journey  directed by Jim Jarmusch , Jack ( performed by John Lurie), Zack (Tom Waits) and Roberto (Roberto Benigni), an Italian who is trying to learn English very hard, sing a hilarious  song which nearly sparks a mutiny,  a funny useful scream to release stress in our English lessons….or our present daily lives.
