Episode 117 – The Awkward Birthday Stuff 😬

LISTEN to the podcast. READ the RnR Grammar. DO the quiz and…. ROCK ON!

Birthdays are great, but are they ALWAYS great? 🤔 Here we look at the NOT so good stuff like the DOUBLE DIP 🤢, BOUNCY castles 😀, NO-ONE coming to your party 😢 and lots more! There’s some GOOD news but also some BAD news, but whatever happens you know that we’ll keep on ROCKin’! ✌️

The RnR vocab that you will learn in today’s show:

  • That’s a weight off my mind (that Boom Boomdidn’t get me a card)
  • I can’t be bothered to think about this (what to get you)
  • He said it was a teddy, but in reality it was a draft excluder
  • A fully grown adult
  • The best thing when you were a kid was a bouncy castle
  • Going to children’s parties involves getting shit faced
  • I’ve been to 3, that’s where I draw the line
  • Hardly anyone turned up
  • We hadn’t really hit it off
  • She whisked me away to Paris a few years ago
  • There was a football round – smashed that
  • It’s going to be great, we’re going to get pissed up

RnR Grammar

A vocab and grammar lesson today: in the podcast we had the term:

A fully grown adult

The point of this ‘fully grown’ is just to emphasise that we’re speaking about an adult, but the MOST important thing is to remember these terms in CONTEXT!

The biggest mistake I see students make is when they hear a new piece of vocabulary and try to apply it to other things (maybe “a fully grown boy”) and it either sounds strange (like ‘fully grown boy’ as it doesn’t really make sense) or is completely wrong, so just remember to use these things in CONTEXT!

By doing this, you will also learn the grammar as it’s inside the sentence – BOOM! 👊

When you have listened to the podcast and read the above, then you’re ready for the quiz below! 👊

Good luck!
