  • It’s only taken you a month to recover from your illness
  • Are you ready? Brace yourself
  • Your podcast has been making me giggle
  • It’s for working class people, not posh people like you

RnR Grammar

In today’s episode, when I was saying that I didn’t do much research, I said to Dan:

“I could’ve done some research, it would’ve taken 2 minutes”

These are modal verbs used in the past form and to do this, we always follow the formula below:

Modal Verb + Have + Part Participle of Verb

It is a very useful piece of grammar to know and use, as it allows you to speak about PAST events that you cannot change. PLUS…. it’s very easy and using this type of RnR grammar makes you sound like a fully competent speaker!


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

Good luck!
