In this episode: Congratulations on 100 episodes of AIRC and open champagne! Also, how to pass the FCE speaking exam, the word LAST and the difference the prepositions between OF and FOR

Listener feedback from Mamen who passed her speaking test

Listener Feedback: Sergio
My name is Sergio. It is not my first time writing to you.
I listen to your podcast everyday and I have listened some podcasts about the FCE Exam, and I would like to know which is the 'required' (or minimum) level to pass the exam.

I mean, I have studied English for many years, and I use it very often at my work. Perhaps, I should try to improve my vocabulary in general, but I think I can follow a normal conversation with a native speaker.

I have listened to some podcasts, as I said before, about some of your students doing a FCE speaking exam, and I would like to know if they could pass the exam.
Could you tell me a podcast number/episode in which I could listen to a person who 'pass' (has passed) the exam, please?

Feedback from Marga Arroyas

Hola Reza and Craig,

This is my first mail to any of you and....

I could tell you how wonderful you are... I could tell you how nice it is listening to you and how much I learn when doing it... I could tell you I´ve downloaded all your podcasts...
I could tell you I listen to them as much as possible (when cooking, driving or even sleeping)... I could tell you you are the best English teachers I´ve ever had...
I could tell you how English has helped me in my life... I could, I could, but I won´t...

I´ll just say THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
Not kisses, not hugs... just a DULCE DE LECHE RECIPE.

If you can´t convince Reza to make "dulde de leche turrón" I would be more than happy to make turrón for both of you.
Something I´ve always loved is cooking!!! and... living in Valencia, just like you, it won´t be any problem to make the turrón and take it to any place you like. Seriously! please think about it!

By the way... there is a place called "Dulce de leche" in Valencia where EVERYTHING they sell is made of DULCE DE LECHE. In fact, there are two places, one in calle Jesús and the other in calle Cuba....
isn´t is where Reza lives? doesn´t he know about it?. ( http://pasteleriadulcedeleche.com ).

Have a nice they and think about my "offer" of making turrón for you!

Happily,
Marga

What do you think, shall we take Marga up on her offer? Yes, we'd like to take Marga up on her offer (to take someone up on an offer - to accet the offer)

 

Javier G (basque country) - Sent a voice message - listening from 2010!
Hi my friends Craig and Reza, I am Javier G from the Basque Country but I am right now in Phoenix (Arizona), I have come for three months like a turist (as a tourist) to improve my English and I have to go back in the middle of May.

I am improving my English a lot because I am trying to engage with native speakers. Right now I have 10 people to teach Spanish and to learn english, face to face,

2 hours (one in spanish and the other one in English), this is the deal...

But I am writing to you to tell you that last week we were in LA (California), my friend had a meeting there, and his partner from Argentina gave him this box with "Alfajores rellenos con dulce de leche",

and this remained me you (reminded me OF you). I send you a picture of the box. I am sorry, we ate all of them. They were really good.

The American accent is too dificult to undestand especially on TV o when the native speakers are talking among themselves.

If a native speaker is talking to you, it is easier because you konw about the topic you are talking (about).

I continue here in my dead time (spare time) with your podcasts...

Thank you very much. Javier G.

 

Charley Pride - Is Anybody going to San Antone Lyrics ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMR6Qt_Rubw )

 


Audio feedback: Javier from Colombia: LAST

last - último/a
What was the last book you read? - ¿Cuál es el último libro que has leído?
Do you want the last biscuit?

last - durar
The speech lasted thirty minutes. - El discurso duró treinta minutos.
How long will this podcast last today?

last - survive, sobrevivir
Do you think this podcast will last?
How long would you last in a zombie apocalypse?

Reza believes bees are more important than humans for the survival of Earth. (He isn’t joking.) Do you agree/disagree?
Reza believes humans are the only creatures that commit senseless acts which destroy nature and our environment. We are our own worst enemy. What do you think?

In this episode: Technology Vocabulary

Listener Feedback: Sergio

My name is Sergio and I am from Spain. I work in a very important Hotel in Madrid, and we speak very often with our company mates (colleagues/workmates) from Paris, London or Hong Kong,

so I looked for a way to improve my English level, and I found your podcast two months ago.

As I work in the computer department, it is possible for me to be listening to you most of the time while I am working, so I use to (usually) listen to three or four of your podcast (podcasts) daily.

(Go to episode 6 to revise 'used to', 'be used to' and 'get used to') http://www.inglespodcast.com/2014/01/31/aprender-ingles-con-reza-y-craig-6/

I have to say THANK YOU. I have noticed that since I subscribed to your podcasts, I have improved my listening skills much more than I expected!

Well, I would like to ask you about two things. First, I was looking for a podcast related with (to) computers, but I couldn't find anything.

Could you speak in a future podcast about computers? I mean, common phrasal verbs, vocabulary or expressions, whatever. The second question is about 'tag questions'.

I would like to know some tips or tricks to use them fluently. I try to use them, but I have to think hard about them, so I sound strange when using them.

(We spoke about tag questions in episode 20) http://www.inglespodcast.com/2014/04/14/reza-doesnt-like-raw-eggs-does-he-airc20/

Listener Feedback: Juan Gabriel

1) ¿Por qué en la frase- estos son vuestros vaqueros"are these your jeans?" se pone antes la palabra "are" que la de "these" por que seria son estos vuestros vaqueros. Explicamelo por que el intercambio de palabras no me aclaro.

-Because the order in a question is: TO BE(Are) + SUBJECT(these) +.....?

2) Otra duda que tengo es el significado de "QUE" si es what por que en la frase ¡Que baratos¡ se escribe con that´s "that´s cheap" (OR “How cheap!”) que significado tiene la palabra 'that´s'?

- It can be dangerous to try to translate directly from Spanish to English. In this example, the translation of ¡Qué barato! is "That's cheap!" or "How cheap!".

3) Otra duda de las que tengo es por que cuando le preguntas a alguien tienes que poner al principio "do you". Por ejemplo - "Do you work in an office?" que significado tienen las palabras "do you"?

- "Do you..." is used to indicate the question form in present simple.

Thanks to our good friend Javier for the olive oil.

How to start and finish emails

Reza responds to emails using a similar level of formality (or informality) as the person who sends the email.


FORMAL

Beginning a formal email:

Dear John, Mr. Smith (Mrs/Miss/Ms) - Yours Sincerely,

miss - single
mrs.- married
ms - single or married

Dear Sir/Madam - Yours Faithfully,

Hi, Good morning/afternoon/evening (Reza would not choose these greetings for formal emails unless the other person used them first)

Reza is a bit of a stickler (stickler - rigorista, insistente)

Ending a formal email:

Best wishes, All the best, Warm regards, Best regards, Kind regards,

I look forward to/I'm looking forward to + (verb) + ing (Reza would choose not to use contractions, like "I'm", in a formal email).

Reza and Craig both agree that it's better to be more formal in exam emails and letters.

It's always better to be more formal than to risk offending someone by being too informal.


INFORMAL

Beginning an informal email:

Hi, Hello, How's it going? What's up? Hey there! G'day (Australian greeting)

Ending an informal email:

Love, Lots of love, hugs, Cheers! kisses, see you soon!
Thanks,See you Tuesday,
Until Friday,


Feedback: Javier from Burgos

Javier found us around episode 44 and went back to Nº1. Now he needs more than one episode per week because he's listened to all of them!
I'm used to listening to a daily podcast of you (must be true, he said "listening TO"!), If I were the President of the Government I would declare your podcasts "of national interest"
and I would enact a law forcing you to release a podcast every day. Poor Craig and Reza!

A doubt I sometimes have is trouble translating our Spanish "subjuntivo" into English.

Certain expressions are clear to me, such as the typical "verb + pronoun + to inf" (I told you to come earlier), and some others such as using certain verbs with the bare infinitive (recommend, suggest):
I recommend that you study more /It is recommended that you study more.

My doubt is with other examples apart from the aforementioned, such as: "No creo que vaya a la fiesta" = I don't think I go / will go to the party. Which one is correct? Both?

Besides, concerning the examples with the bare infinitive, I think that with some verbs there is only that possibility, I mean: "I recommend that you go the party" is OK but you can't say "I recommend you to go to the party".

But with other verbs, are both possibilities allowed?. For instance: "I asked that Mark submit his assignment" MAYBE YOU ASKED MARK’S TUTOR TO ASK MARK TO SUBMIT IT and "I asked Mark to submit his assignment". YOU ASKED MARK DIRECTLY

So, my enquiry is: which verbs are only used with the bare infinitive and which verbs can be used with both structures?.

Best regards from Burgos,
Javier

Nobody really agrees what the subjunctive is and when it should be used. Many grammar books and English teachers disagree.

The past subjunctive is the same as the past indicative. The exception is the verb TO BE: I were, you were, he/sh/it were (for example, as used in the second conditional "If I WERE you, I would.....")

The present subjunctive is the same as the past subjunctive, except for the 3rd person 's' which is sometimes (but not always) removed: "I recommend he TRAVEL without any luggage."

The present subjunctive is more common in American English than British English.

The present subjunctive of the verb TO BE is 'BE' for all forms of the verb (I BE, you BE, he/she/it BE etc).

Example, "If there be any reason why this man and woman should not be married....."

Some verbs which can take the subjunctive include:

advise - "Passengers are advised that the 5:15 train to Swindon has been cancelled." / "I advise that he NOT go there." (negative subjunctive)

ask - "I ask that he accompany us." / I ask that you put the gun down on the floor, sir."

demand - "I demand that you give back the money."

insist - "We insist that all passengers check in before 6pm."

propose - "I propose we meet after dinner for a cocktail."

recommend - "I recommend that students not write on their question paper."

request - "We request that all guests remove their muddy boots before entering the lobby."

suggest - "I suggest that we have a break for coffee after this podcast."


Some expressions sometimes go with, or use, the subjunctive:

It's a good idea....... - "It's a good idea that she stay (subjunctive) / stays (indictative) behind."

"God save the Queen." / "Long live the Queen."

 

Audio feedback: Antonio Prieto from Cadiz (thank you for your podcast) - XI've been hearing youX - listening to you.


Here's some audio feedback from Antonio Prieto.

Another question we have been asked, and I'm sorry, I can't remember who asked us this, but it's about the two verbs 'avoid' and 'prevent'.

What’s the difference between to avoid (evitar, esquivar) and to prevent (prevenir, evitar)?

To prevent is to take action to stop something before it starts. To avoid is to just stay away from something. (more active / engagement/deployment to stop something happening???)
"My dad prevented me from going to the rave." (prevent someone FROM doing something)
Example: Getting the flu shot would be prevention, hiding in your home and not having contact with anyone until the end of flu season would be avoidance.
"I avoided speaking to John" - (avoid + gerund)

Listener Feedback: Javier G from the Basque country - audio feedback - not because he says how much he likes the podcast, but because he is practising his English.
(listen TO you, Good use of present perfect 'I've downloaded all your podcasts', 'I've learned a lot of English with you.' and 'do sport' (not Xpractise sportX)

ITALKI READ

Paloma from Segovia
Good morning Craig and Reza,
My name is Paloma and I live in Segovia.
I listened to your podcast just a month ago when I luckily came across them looking for some listenings and I must say you two are doing a wonderful work (a wonderful job) which I am very grateful for.
Now, making profit of your kindness (taking advantage of), I wonder if you could clarify this sentence: "I hope you don't mind my asking", which I believe is correct, instead of "I hope you don't mind me asking" or "I hope you don't mind if I ask", ....
I am not sure which one is best, I always use the first one though, and when and how to use it.
Thank you in advance.
P.S. If (OR- NOT BOTH-) whenever you happen to come to Segovia, please let me know. I will be delighted to show you my little but beautiful town.
Kisses. Paloma

Emilia - Email
Me podrian aclarar unas dudas por favor?
Cómo es correcto decir:

1."I turn 16 this Sunday." or "I am turning 16 this Sunday." (Present simple is better - (used here for timetabled events and schedules in the future. Another example; "The train leaves at 6pm" - fixed future time).

(“I will turn…” is also possible. Future simple for a future fact)

2."The festival starts in the evening." (Present simple - fixed future time) or "The festival is starting in the evening." (Present continuous - Future plan/arrangement)
Both are correct. Also, “The festival is going to start…” (to be going to+INFIN. - Future intention is also possible)
