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

Have you ever wondered what life is like on the London Undergroud? 🤔 Well wonder no more, as I speak to Boom Boom Cannon about exactly this! 💥 There’s also talk of cutting penises 😨, poetry ✍ and sh!t loads of RnR vocab! Just keep calm people and KEEP ON ROCKING! 👊

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

  • Keep trying, keep plugging away
  • I’ve kept you in the dark
  • Oh yea, The Full Monty! (after he listed everything)
  • He’s sticking up for his old employers there
  • The Circle Line just goes round in one big loop
  • One form of torture would be for someone to tie you up
  • You normally get on and get off the train
  • Get in / get out the car
  • You see 2 minutes and think ‘ok, I’ll take that’, I won’t moan
  • 5 minutes plus and my blood is boiling!
  • I’d say that one’s a longshot Martin
  • Someone left a coffin on the tube
  • Someone obviously handed the coffin in
  • I took some knives through airport security, that caused quite a scene
  • It’s a good job you’re in Sweden
  • There is no boozing allowed on the tube
  • 4 tube drivers were assaulted
  • To beat them up
  • He said that he downed 3 cans of beer in a minute
  • The one that should definitely warrant death is when you’re on the escalator
  • Everyone in Italy takes the piss out of us
  • Rock n Roll is all well and good
  • People end up fainting on the tube
  • If you don’t remember, don’t worry, I will fill you in
  • No-one was sympathetic
  • The bloke sitting next to me has the same newspaper

RnR Grammar

Let’s look again at Boom Boom’s ‘poetic’ phrases from today:

“Rock n Roll is all well and good, but rules are rules”

“If everyone thinks that, I don’t want to be the one to make them think otherwise”

As I mentioned in the show, neither of these phrases are difficult to understand, but notice how much colour they bring to sentences. You will hear these kind of things ALL the time when you read / listen to English, try to take note of them, as they can be learned in chunks, so you don’t need to learn the grammar, as you just learn the phrase directly and the grammar is already included baby – OH YEA! 👊

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

Good luck!

    I want to say that this podcast is the best thing to relax, laugh, learn easily English while doing some other things! Frankly I bloody love vocabulary like pooing, shitty, bollocks and etc. Nobody helps students to be acquainted with such kind of glossary therefore we usually don’t understand native speakers! Keep on rocking Martin!
