Somebody help me... Somebody help me yeah!
Hey up Simon and friends!
I´m glad to know you´re going on holiday Simon :-). I hope you and your family have a great time on the south coast.
Oh by the way, thanks for the picture of your elder brother and his son. I must say that your little nephew is very cute :-).
Simon, I´m a very fortunate student because I have such a tough teacher helping me to improve my English ;-). Ok sir, let´s get down business:
“The first thing you should know is that you have to move your hands and head at the same time."
1) I should have used the past form because " once" is an adverb related to past form.
2) However, I found the idea very interesting and I´d love to participate of a film session followed by a round-table meeting :-).
Oh gosh this one is though :-). Well, I think in this case I should have used the past form because I was expressing an opinion (a statement).
3) “we live in a small and cosy white house which has a lovely garden in front of it”.
Ah Simon this last task is so unfair! I can´t type and strut my stuff like John Travolta at the same time :-D. You know the arm thing demands lots of concentration!
She´s has been kicking around since she came back from Malaysia.
Ok, this Saturday I´ll tune in to find out whether or not you´re doing the show :-).
Nice to meet you Paulo! It´s nice to know I have a FCE fellow here :-). Have you heard about the flo-joe website? This website has a very good free resource to help you in your preparation. Here´s the link http://www.flo-joe.co.uk/ .
Thanks Concetta! I´ve just seen the trailler of Waking Ned and I liked it very much indeed. I´m going to look for this film in my rent store :-).
Hey Beatriz! I´ve come to know that some scenes were shot in São Paulo too. Once I heard that Montevideo is a very charming city. I guess it´s because of this the city is so frequently chosen as location for films and advertisements :-).
Hi Maurício! Your comments are very kind :-). My sister Roseli isn´t into English like me. I think I´m the only one at home who really likes English. Maurício, on the right side of this page there´s a link to the Facebook. Can you see it? It´s below “Find us”.
Once you signed up, join the BBC LE group. There you can find people to exchange messages and also to talk on Skype. Let me know if you sign up ok?
Hey Vladmir, I´ve never tried the Skype Me. However, if you want to find people interesting in brushing up on their English take a look at the BBC LE group on the Facebook.
Hey up Niddo! Yes, my mum has a special care with her roses :-). Although we´re so far from each other our countries have some similarities. That´s so nice :-).
Hi Nurzhan! What a pity. I haven´t had the opportunity to watch Kazhak´s films yet. Hey! I´d never criticise you! You have a very good English :-).
Hi Carmen! Oh we used to have dahlias here, but not anymore. I can imagine that your granny´s dahlias were fantastic :-).
Oh thanks Ernesto :-). Well, I do all the house the cleaning (Yes, I know. But what can I do? It´s a necessary evil :-) ) and I´m the one who goes to the supermarket too. Well, my tasks aren´t a big deal though.
Hi Naweed! Brazilian educational system is divided in: pre-school ( childern over 3 years old); primary school ( 6 to 14 years old); secondary school ( 15 to 18 years old) or technician secondary school (15 to 19 years old) and then university. The majority of the students are enrolled at public schools ( free schools). Moreover, our educational system has been passing through some changes and nowadays the biggest challenge that the Brazilian government is facinng is offering an educational system with better quality to everyone.
Hi James! How are you doing? I guess you´re still busy as a bee because I haven´t heard from you recently :-). Oh thanks for having spotted my mistake. In fact, I should have written ‘I´m looking forward to watching it’. I´m glad to know you´re enjoying my blogs :-).
Hi Lucy! How nice you´ve liked the pics :-). I like gardening but I haven´t inherit my mother´s green fingers! Well, maybe she can teach both of us the tricks of the trade ;-).
Hey up Marianna! Yippee! How nice you´ve found a time to chat a bit with me :-). Oh I´m just picturing your windowsill. I remember you´ve mentioned you have a lovely view from it. Well, I reckon your drawning in china ink and water colours must be very beautiful. Anyway, you´re right. My mum used to paint but she had to stop because of health problems. Now that she´s feeling better she´s considering taking up painting again :-).
Good bye friends. I see you soon.
