Good evening, fellas! How are you today?
Looks like you are all feeling great today. I’m happy to hear that!
Last weekend I went to my old house, the place where I grew up as a child. It’s in a village quite far from the city.
It was delightful. I saw a herd of goats, many flocks of ducks, and sceneries you won’t be able to see in the city.
Today we are going to talk about collective nouns in animals because our session today is #EngVocab Groups of Animals.
You’ve probably already heard of some examples like the ones I mentioned beforehand. But some of these are very unique, or weird. #EngVocab
Let’s begin! #EngVocab
- A band of gorillas. #EngVocab
