The text

My name is Linny. I live in Brazil and study English in my free time. I'd like to be fluent in English someday. Three days ago I read a good book. It was on a Tuesday. Yesterday was Thursday and I had to work. The vacation is approaching and I can't wait to go to the beach.


A North American wrote this text. In Australia we would say:

  • ... my spare time
  • ... fluent in English one day
  • ... The holidays are approaching
