Expressões do inglês

Good morning!

Comecei a fazer uma limpeza geral no meu hd e encontrei um arquivo com expressões do inglês que compilei ao longo do CPE da Cultura Inglesa (curso de proficiência em inglês). Eu escolhia algumas dessas expressões pra dar uma impressionada nos testes de conversação... rs

Engraçado é que tem umas simples, que uso muito, e outras que eu nunca mais ouvi! (Essas anotações são de 1997!) Ah!

Acho que podem ser válidas para quem tiver em fase de exames, pra iniciar algumas frases... olha só:
