Lake Chaubunagungamaug

I want to talk about a lake with a 45-letter Indian name that can be translated as, “You fish on your side, I fish on my side and nobody fishes in the middle.” It’s Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg.

Oh, yeah! This is the full-length version of the name. Have difficulty pronouncing it? Well, there is a helpful song that can be of benefit to you.

I like to add that this name is the longest place name in the United States. The lake, also known as Webster Lake, is located near the Connecticut border and has a surface area of 1,442 acres (5.83 km²), based on Wikipedia.

zahra i need a interesting subject for my english class(i must speak about 5 - 10 min) what is your suggestion?

Zahra said...

Well, for choosing a topic you much consider your area of interest and level of proficiency in English.

What about:

your ideal vacation

Why you like/dislike pets?

What is your favorite lunch?

Something funny that happened to you this month.

A memory from childhood

What do you like to do after a busy week?

What is your greatest strength/weakness?

Discuss your viewpoints about Iran's sports teams (Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games)
I hope these help.

I wish you good luck.
