Yes, time does FLY when you’re having fun and that’s exactly what we talk about in today’s show: FLYING! ✈️✈️✈️Praying to God ?, sunburn ?,  sex in toilets ? PLUS lots of RnR vocab like:

  • I prefer the aisle seat
  • I don’t know how people get away with it (sex in toilets)
  • Someone hijacked the plane
  • I got used to flying
  • Miss the plane
  • I was scared of the toilet flush
  • You can join the mile-high club
  • When I’m on a plane, I sleep, snore and dribble
  • Don’t talk to strangers
  • I won’t go into that story

RnR Grammar

The sexist part of grammar was when I said:

“I used to be scared of flying, but then I got used to it

To understand this better, here are some questions:

  • Was I scared of flying in the past? Yes.
  • Am I scared of flying now? No.
  • What was the process that changed this situation? I got used to it.

Note how we use GET USED TO S/T for the PROCESS of something strange (flying) becoming a little easier. Once the process is COMPLETE, we then say “I am used to it”.

Also notice that when we put a verb after ‘get used to’ or ‘am used to’ it comes in the -ing form. So now I can say:

“I got used to flying or “I am used to flying

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

Good luck!
