Monday morning blues!

Publicado el by admin Publicado en Grammar topics, Uncategorized, Urban English | Deja un comentario  

Oh don’t we all have that sinking sensation on our stomach as Monday morning approaches! I’ve just had a wonderful weekend walking in the countryside, scrambling over rocks and best of all celebrating birthday parties! I’ve been baking  and trying to become a domestic goddess. Now one of the most traditional birthday cakes in England is the Victoria Sponge cake. It’s a simple recipe to follow and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s also a good way to practice your English by looking through food blogs! And even if you don’t fancy whipping up  a cake, there is some good imperatives which you can practice.

Vocabulario : Word up!
  • sinking sensation = tener un mal presentimiento
  • Baking = haciendo pasteles
  • whipping up = preparar rápido

Add some strawberries for improved flavour.

Vocabulario Culinario : Word up!

Are you settled back in?

Publicado el by admin Publicado en Uncategorized | Deja un comentario  

Good morning Lovespeakers! You should all be back to routines by mow and if you’re not, you should really push to get yourself settled in! If you remember, last week we looked at comments for making suggestions

How about getting up 30 minutes earlier every morning so you have time to grab some breakfast on the way?

Today I’d like to look at taking those suggestions up and agreeing with them and also turning them down in the nicest way possible.

Saying yes!

Haz click para conocer los mejores Cursos de Inglés Online

That’s a great idea! I might try that tomorrow.

That might work, I’ll certainly give it a go!

Saying no!

I’d love to but it takes 45 minutes to get in to work so I have to get up really early as it is.

That wouldn’t work for me as I’m not a morning person, I struggle to get up at 7.30 let alone any earlier!

or if you really don’t agree with the suggestion…..

Are you our of your mind? There is no way I am getting up earlier!

Chose your favourite and get practicing!
