  • People call me snake hips
  • The two worlds become blurred
  • The name Halloween comes from Hallow’s Eve
  • When Halloween went to America is when things went downhill 
  • Trick or treat

  • I glazed over as you were speaking
  • It’s a pet hate of mine when 17 year olds come to the door and say trick or treat
  • How can we understand if they are 12 or 13? It’s a grey area
  • In the old days people used to….
  • Surely the dog is on a LEASH
  • Have you ever dressed up for a party?
  • I was the only person in fancy dress

…just try to keep CALM and just try to keep on ROCKIN’ baby ?

RnR Grammar

We had some third conditional today, so what else could we use for RnR Grammar except that?!

I would like to highlight a very small grammar point though, notice how Dan said:

“What would you have done if they had stabbed you?”

See how it is different when I write it the other way round:

“If they had stabbed you, what would you have done?”

Can you see the difference? It’s very small I know, but you’ll notice that in the first one there is no comma ( , ). When the if clause comes first… then we need a comma! It may seem like a small things, but all these small things together make the difference between a good speaker of English and an advanced speaker of English! ?

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

Good luck!

    Hy Martin, very good job indeed.
    I’d like to know what is that giant shit banner (Turkish language ????) that pops up in your RnR facebook pages. I can’t read and see anything.
    Ciao

      Hi Sandro! I’m not sure what you mean, are you talking about the cartoon picture of me on the cover photo? If you click on it you should be able to read and see everything 🙂
