E127 – How to Manage Awkward Situations with Luke’s English Podcast (P2)

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

🌟SPECIAL GUEST🌟 Much more special than Dan the Man (although he’s here too 😬), we’re joined by Luke from LEP and we talk about THREESOMES 3️⃣, POOING on walls 😲, taking BULLETS 🔫 and much much more! Some SERIOUS RnR vocab and lots of SPECIAL surprises for this SPECIAL guest! 😀 I know that’s a lot, but just keep CALM and keep on ROCKin’ baby! 👊

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

  • I’m pumped. I pumped myself up just earlier on.
  • Sorry… I jumped the gun there.
  • Well I’ve never really wanted a threesome with you… so this is not… it’s not great news.
  • in order to get all the dirt on exactly what happened.
  • What happened?! Did they fall out with each other?
  • Yeah! Well not only is everything fine… you’ve dragged me into the situation too!
  • We’re gonna start rowing again!
  • Well anyway… regardless of what happens… and I’m not gonna ask you what actually went down.
  • just leave your child to like… take all of like the… the grief. So the grief… is like the criticism let’s
  • I’ll… I’ll just take the bullet as it were.
  • It has backfired before… because I remember one time I held the door open for someone…
  • And I’m… I don’t know how to deal with it
  • So no half measures in something like this.
  • I would just say ‘Give it 5 minutes.’

RnR Grammar

Luke used some SERIOUS RnR grammar / vocab in today’s show when he said:

“I’ll… I’ll just take the bullet as it were”.

Why has he put  ‘as it were’ at the end there? Is this a conditional? Is he crazy? The answer is… neither of them!

We sometimes use this to say ‘so to speak’ or to make what we say ‘less precise’, so in this case, I think it’s clear to say that Luke wasn’t really saying “I will take a bullet and happily get shot”, it was used in a metaphorical sense so to make it ‘less ‘precise’ he said ‘as it were’ at the end.

And THAT is RnR grammar…. (but kind of vocabulary)  😬

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