175 – Rugby’s Coming Home 🏉


Home to South Africa that is… 😄 You may or may not know the rugby world cup has been on, so we thought we’d talk about that. Don’t worry if you know nothing about rugby though, as neither do I! 😅 Apart from rugby though, we also talk about pig’s hearts 🐖, getting your penis out at the gym 🏋️, drinking in pubs at 8.45am and lots more! Loads of RnR vocab this week, so sit back with a pair of headphones, relax and just keeeeeeep on ROCKin’, baby! 👊

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

  • we didn’t have that longwinded conversation beforehand
  • I let out the fact that we do have a review
  • Not a clue, not a clue
  • Straight off the bat, I will tell everyone, that I know nothing about rugby
  • I’ve got a table booked for 8.45 this Saturday coming
  • You can have a fry up as well
  • When you’re there in the country, you get swept up in it
  • A ball coming out the air and someone trapping it with their foot
  • The balls were made from a pig’s bladder
  • Was that another lesson where you fainted?
  • It was all a bit much for me
  • Always running the fun and pissing on my parade
  • Yea it’s minging
  • It’s having a second wind
  • I’ve just signed up for a gym
  • I don’t know the protocol
  • When they draw their guns
  • I got it out first just to set the tone
  • This is absolute bollocks
  • Since then it just caught on (singing the national anthem)
  • You’ve just read it on some made up website
  • They haven’t just plucked this from nowhere

RnR Grammar

As I mentioned in today’s episode when I spoke about “straight off the back” / “straight off the bat”, many NATIVE SPEAKERS get things wrong in English, and almost certainly, many native speakers of your language make mistakes!

I’m telling you this just to emphasise how mistakes are a part of ALL languages. When we make them in our own language, we often laugh about them, but when we make them in a second language, we are embarrassed by them… I know I am in Italian, but the secret is just to accept them and embrace them, as they are totally NATURAL in language learning!
