    Vocabulary: time that flies


    Time cannot be grasped, cannot be stopped... It's an obsession for women and men who have always tried to tame Time, to catch up, not to waste it, and even to save it if possible...  History is going faster and faster... In daily conversation, we can notice many expressions which are, if need be, the proof that Time is always on our minds... We'd better know these expressions...
