I really think that the best place to be in January is on a Brazilian beach. However, beach is a difficult word to pronounce for ESL students, and it often comes out sounding like an impolite word. Well, an impolite word unless you breed dogs and are talking about a female dog, and that’s when you use the word bitch. But for those of us who are not breeders, we just refer to our female dogs by using the words girl, lady, sweetie, baby-girl, miss, or whatever fits the dog’s personality and ours. This exercise was designed to teach you not to say bitch when you really want to say beach. We really shouldn’t embarrass ourselves any more than necessary.
