What are daily lessons?

These short lessons cannot substitute speaking on a regular basis, which is the best way to improve. These lessons are a great way to keep improving in between lessons. They are short readings and videos selected by Marcus to help you save time and energy. It is not easy to stay motivated and even when you are motivated, it is difficult to find something new and interesting every day. I will take care of that for you, making it very simple for you to improve your English skills every single day!

 5-year-old boy with $3 in his pocket was pulled over by Utah police while driving his parent’s car to California to buy a Lamborghini. The boy left in the SUV after arguing with his mother, who said she would not buy the luxury car for him, Utah Highway Patrol said on Twitter. A trooper spotted the vehicle weaving on Interstate 15 at 30 mph, the Utah Highway Patrol said. Troopers told CNN they initially thought the boy was an impaired driver. Morgan told CNN he had to help the child get the SUV into park. “He was sitting on the front edge of the seat so that he could reach the brake pedal to keep the car stopped while I was standing there,” he said. Once he was pulled over, the child told the trooper he had intended to drive to California to purchase a Lamborghini for himself. He had $3. The starting price for a new Lamborghini is around $200,000. Morgan says no one was hurt, and it will be up to the local prosecutor to decide whether to file charges against the parents, who had left the boy in his sibling’s care while they were away from home.

Un bambino di 5 anni con 3 dollari in tasca è stato fermato dalla polizia dello Utah mentre guidava l’auto dei suoi genitori in California per comprare una Lamborghini. Il ragazzo è partito con il SUV dopo aver litigato con la madre, che ha detto che non avrebbe comprato l’auto di lusso per lui, ha detto la Utah Highway Patrol su Twitter. Un poliziotto ha visto il veicolo tessere sulla Interstate 15 a 30 miglia all’ora, ha detto la Utah Highway Patrol. I poliziotti hanno detto alla CNN che inizialmente pensavano che il ragazzo fosse un guidatore con problemi di guida. Morgan ha detto a KSL-TV che doveva aiutare il bambino a portare il SUV nel parco. “Era seduto sul bordo anteriore del sedile in modo che potesse raggiungere il pedale del freno per tenere ferma l’auto mentre io ero lì in piedi”, ha detto. Una volta fermato, il bambino ha detto al poliziotto che aveva intenzione di guidare fino in California per acquistare una Lamborghini per sé. Aveva 3 dollari. Il prezzo di partenza per una nuova Lamborghini è di circa 200.000 dollari. Morgan dice che nessuno si è fatto male, e che spetterà al procuratore locale decidere se sporgere denuncia contro i genitori, che avevano lasciato il ragazzo sotto la custodia del fratello mentre erano fuori casa.
