Episode 96 – World Cup Mania ⚽

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

Do we say ‘soccer’ or ‘football’ in English? 🤔 Find out in today’s podcast… PLUS there are some songs about Football Coming home 🏠, SAVING The Queen 👸 and lots more! Keeeeeep on ROCKin’ people! 👊👊👊

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

  • It doesn’t pay to pick that money up
  • I would be happy if we won one knockout game
  • If you have people over
  • We scored a goal in extra time and there was pandemonium
  • This story has just literally popped into mind
  • To be fair, you were completely hammered
  • Even today when I hear that song it gives me goose pimples
  • It hasn’t got a good ring to it
  • I love how they slipped in “arriverderci”
  • He bit his hand off at the invitation
  • Someone in that match scored a hat-trick
  • Especially if he scores it… it’ll be like “that’s backfired!”
  • A good fan is a fan that turns up
  • Countries sing the National Anthem before matches
  • The roar of the crowd at the end
  • It makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up
  • Sweden are the ones that knocked out Italy

RnR Grammar

In today’s podcast, when we read out the review there was the word ‘epicness’.

As we said in the show, that’s not actually a word… BUT when speaking in English, you can often add these suffixes (word endings like ‘ness’) to words and INVENT words!

It sounds ridiculous, but native speakers do it ALL the time! In a FV podcast recently I said the word ‘bastardy’, that’s not a word! BUT… it sounds funny so I invented it! So don’t be afraid to take risks and have a go!

Remember though, if you do this, it’s definitely NOT formal, so don’t do it in your English exams – just when you’re with your friends joking around! 👊

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

Good luck!
