Comic Strips Calvin & Hobbes


AS histórias em quadrinhos podem ajudar a melhorar o vocabulário de forma divertida. Geralmente, as palavras não são complicadas. A minha tirinha favorita em Inglês é o Calvin And Hobbes, eles são muito engraçados. Calvin é um menino de mais ou menos 6 anos de idade e Hobbes é o seu tigre de pelúcia que ganha vida com a imaginação fertil de Calvin. O desenhista é Bill Watterson.


Os dois primeiros quadros são a imaginação de Calvin em ação.

A Wild Cat?


The cat was not moving. It was lying in the grass. The cat was black and white. It was a pretty black and white cat. It was cold outside. The cat was lying on its stomach. It was dark outside. The porch light shined on the cat. The cat looked at Sissy. “Mom, can I have the cat?” she asked her mom. Her mom came outside on the porch. She looked at the cat. “That is a pretty cat,” her mom said. “Can I have it?” Sissy asked. Her mom said no. Maybe the cat belonged to another family. Maybe the cat was wild. If it was wild, it might bite Sissy.

Mary’s Hobbies and Interests


Mary has a lot of hobbies and interests. She usually gets up early so she can run before work. She doesn’t often have time to ski, but she occasionally goes on Saturdays during the winter. Mary often rides a horse at a stable near her home.

She sometimes goes after work, but she usually goes horseback riding on Sundays. She loves music. She always goes to choir practice on Wednesday evenings and sings in church on Sundays. She doesn’t have much extra money, so she rarely goes to concerts in the city. She seldom watches TV because she likes doing things outside.

She usually goes to the gym if it’s raining outside. She isn’t often alone because she has a lot of friends. She occasionally does something alone, but she usually does her activities with one of her friends. She’s a happy woman!
