Use the news item about Leon’s Frozen Custard “English only” policy to help you improve your vocabulary. Follow these steps:
- Read the questions and answer any you know
- Watch again
- Look at the unanswered questions and try to guess the meaning from context
- Watch one last time
- Use an English only dictionary to check your answers . I recommend: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/
