    MY VOCAB PRACTICE

    1. When I have the chance, I order octopus at the restaurant since it is so good and so rare in my country.
    2. Even if I practice every day, I will never get to sing one good octave.
    3. I love it when octogenarians try to use technologies, it is always funny.
    4. My next vacation will be in October, and I still have to decide where I want to go.
