Did you know that there are over 600,000 words in English? That's a lot of words, and far more than any human being could ever manage to learn. Even Shakespeare only used around 55,000 different words in all of his works. Mind you, he did actually invent quite a few of them. To get a good mastery of English, you do need to expand your vocabulary as much as possible. The more words you know, the better your English will be. The Activities here will help you to quickly develop your vocabulary.

Turbulence on aircraft is a common phenomenon that can cause discomfort and anxiety for passengers and crew members. It is typically caused by changes in air pressure and temperature that create pockets of unstable air. Turbulence can range from mild to severe, and can occur during any phase of a flight. While modern aircraft are designed to withstand the forces of turbulence, it is still important for passengers to follow safety instructions and keep their seatbelts fastened when seated. Pilots can use various techniques to avoid or minimize turbulence, such as altering altitude or speed, but it is not always possible to completely avoid it. While turbulence can be unsettling, it is a normal part of air travel and should not be a cause for alarm.
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. I wanted to give you an update on our flight today. As you can probably feel, we're encountering some pretty rough weather and quite a bit of turbulence. I want to assure you that we're doing everything we can to ensure a safe and comfortable flight.
Our flight path has taken us through a storm system, and the turbulence is making it a challenging flight for both our passengers and crew. We've had to make some adjustments to our altitude to try and fly above the turbulence, but it's still quite bumpy. I want to thank you all for your understanding and patience during this difficult flight.
Rest assured, our crew is highly trained and experienced in handling these types of situations. Our aircraft is equipped with the latest technology and safety features, and we're closely monitoring the weather conditions to make any necessary adjustments to our flight path.
So, sit back, relax, and let's get through this together. We'll have you on the ground safely in no time.
