TEACHERS: You can use the text for a dictation, a gapped text, or other form of classroom practice. For your convenience, here is the text you can copy and paste into a Word document.

Every year is full of change. Almost every month brings something new into our lives. The one thing that is certain in this world is change. Nothing remains the same for long.

What will happen next? Who knows? Some may feel change is forced upon us. But if we learn to expect changes, life becomes easier to face, so don’t turn away. Turn toward what is coming.

    I wanted to share my thought on the “change” video about my own life. It has been lots of changes with me this year started from health and now at work.
     
    When I read this “ If we learn to expect changes, life becomes easier to face, so don’t turn away. Turn toward what is coming” it hit me

    Thank You Jennifer for choosing the topic of "Change". There is a wonderful song by  Mercedes Sosa in Spanish " Cambia todo Cambia" which means :All things change for sure. If you expect changes it will be easer….
