Bài học VIP

Valentine's Day is on February 14th, on this holiday we celebrate the people that we love and care for.

I can show you some Valentine's day gifts that I prepared.

My son will be giving this kind of Valentine' s day cards to his friends.

And I help to make special Valentine's day cards for his teachers and babysitter.

This is the card for his babysitter and this small box of chocolate and we made this kind of card for his teacher and also again a small box of chocolate.

And I prepare a special box of chocolate for one of my neighbors because she is so very kind to us.

She gets the card and a box of chocolate.

Now we can see that we love our neighbors, we love our teachers and we love our friends but the truth is that we love these people in different ways.

In this lesson, I wanna talk about other words we can use for love - the synonym for love but also talk about the small differences among these words
