a small mistake
 
Dear colleagues, I īm sorry, but in the worksheet sent yesterday
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=726869#thetop
there is a small mistake that reported the colleague Silvia Patty.
I wrote "uses" and not "use", I typed a letter "s" in most, certainly because the key is close to the "e" key and how we say in my Country  "haste makes the blind children"
Tonight when I get back from school, I will insert the worksheet correct.
Best regards.

Chiaretta,
Your saying is too sad. In English, we say "Haste makes waste". I will agree, though, that the Italian version is a better warning.

In Russian we say "You need haste only when catching fleas" or "if you hurry, you īll make people laugh"
The Italian saying is really scary.Shocked

"More haste - less speed" is our version.

To be more precise: īThe cat hurried makes blind children ī, so the way to say it seems less sad and scary?

No, chiaretta, the image of a cat making children blind is even more sad and scary. However, as I said before, the purpose of the saying is to warn against haste, and this is an excellent warning.
