    Have eyes for

    This story is great already. I’m not sure how plausible, but I’m excited to see where it goes. The poor prince looking in at a beeswax doll and falling in love. I love both the expressions, they are the same in English, it seems. Have eyes for and fall in love. And both are new to me in this snippet. If you can hear these love expressions in the exercise, maybe you’re ready for love in Paris (or Menton, if that’s what you prefer).

The right amount of challenge. What do you think? Join us for the next quiz.

    He believes that this beautiful creature is a young girl and immediately falls in love with her. The king introduces his son to princesses, but the prince only has eyes for the young girl from Menton and decides to marry her.
