The English Language has a huge number of verbs. Take take, for example. In other languages you will find one word which means take, and if you're lucky there may be two. But just look at English: there's clutch, clasp, cling, get, grab, grasp, snatch, seize, snaffle, collar and appropriate, to name just a few.

How can even the most diligent foreign learner of English hope to acquire this vast vocabulary? The only sure way is by having a British friend to practise it with. And the best kind of friend to guide you on this journey of linguistic discovery is a romantic one. To learn the language side-by-side, hand-in-hand, cheek-to-cheek, heart-to-heart with a native speaker. A warning, however: the foreign visitor is advised against pursuing this amorous connection to the point of actually marrying a Brit. Married couples in this country do not normally talk to one another, but communicate by glances, frowns, coughs, whistles and the occasional note on the breakfast table - none of which is very useful for the dedicated English language learner.
