Empty Fridge Idiom   
Dear colleagues, There�s an idiom in my language which means that the fridge is empty. Translated directly, it sounds like �A mouse has hung itself�. It�s humorous, of course :) Is there an idiom in English that means the same? Like, there�s no food left. Thanks in advance!

Opposite vs. across from   
Hi dear colleagues
  Hope everybody�s doing GREAT. You know I�d like to know the specific difference between the prepositions "opposite" and "across from". I mean can they be used interchangeably or in some contexts there would be a difference in meaning. I was also wondering to know if we could use across from when two people are sitting or standing opposite each other.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Looking for penpals   
Hi everyone,
I�m an Italian ESL teacher in a Middle School located in the north of Italy.
I�ve got a group of about 20-25 students who are impatient to start a new penpal project with friends from abroad.
They are aged 12-13 and their level is A1-A2. 
Both snail mail and emails are ok for us. Skype could be ok every now and then.
The students learn French, too.
Please let me know if you are interested in starting a new adventure!
Thanks a million,
best regards,

prep. + the farm?   
Hi all,
in the light of the recent questions about language accuracy (the use of a prep with page, for example), I�d like to ask you (and, first of all, all the honourable native speakers here) what preposition we should use with the noun "farm". In some resources you see that "the farm" is preceded by "at", but the bulk of them seem to teach us to use "on"... And what about "in"? Is it the case of British / American tendencies again?
Thank you all in advance!  
P.S. can�t wait to upload something new and, hopefully, useful but have been working myself to the ground all the time ...

I grew up on a farm in the USA and will try to explain why we use the prepositions at and on with farm, but not in.
On is used for a surface.
At is used for a point.
In is used for an enclosed space.
ON: In your mind, think of a farm. You see the farm out in an open space and it covers / extends over an area of ground / the surface of the earth.
We live on a farm. There are many cows and pigs on our farm. We grow corn and soybeans on our farm. (Our farm = our area that covers / extends over the surface of the earth.)
AT: A point / where.
I will meet you at the farm.
FrauSues example: There is really poor phone reception at the farm. 
Note: AT and ON can sometimes be used interchageably with subtle differences in meaning:
Days are always busy at/on the farm. 
IN: In is not used with farm because the traditional farm is not in an enclosed space.
I cant think of any instances where in is used with farm. Can anyone else?

Native speaker voice over   
Hello, everyone!
I was wondering if there is anyone who would be willing to do the voice over for this short (1:43) story?
After listening to me reading stories all the time (sigh), I think my kids deserve a proper native speaker model 
If there is someone who would like to help, he/she can email me,
If not, have a nice Sunday, everyone!

Hey, Spinney! I already have a volunteer, also a member of this wonderful community, who generously offered to do the voice over. But thank you so much for your kind words! 
Have a nice week!

on page or at page?????   
Can you help me with this doubt that I came across with: I have learned all my life "open you books on page..." I remember my teachers saying that, I have always said that and now I heard that it is wrong and that the right way to say it is "open you books at page..." is it? A friend of mine that has lived for many years in Canada said that "open your books on page" doesn ´t sound wrong to him. I really would like to be sure about this.
Thanks in advance

Lynne, we Yanks can defend "to" with logic. "At" is for location, and "to" is for direction (motion). Since opening the book is motion, it needs "to". We win!
