 English in Czernowitz:
 Everybody wanted to know - to accomplish the impossible dream.

       Actually we spoke English:
   In soccer we shouted :Hentz , foul, out, corner and Gol.
   Boxing: Nokout .
   Playing bandits it was: Hensap !
   But we wanted more , so we got Eckersley Essential English manual.
  The first thing we learned was how to pronounce "the" and "this".
     The voiced and the voiceless fricative version.
     Directing the air flow centrally or laterally .
        Easiest of things !
       Both are written "th" .How was I to know?
       You will never know . It comes naturally !
