Busy doing what I want!
A good weekend to you too Ana Paul and everyone else! I’m writing this after taking a little nap (you call this a siesta in Brazil don’t you?) having got back from the organic market for our weekly shop! (Didn’t hear any Japanese though!) Later on I’ll be heading to my studio to practice playing bass then on to the radio station (after a quick drink!) for tonight’s show (actually Sunday morning 01.00am!). I’ll be sure to play something for you tonight Ana (and all my new bloggy pals!). I love the weekends but as you can see they are pretty busy too!
Indeed it is a shame on you Ana Paul for only seeing Dune. I can say that this is not really a very good “Lynch” film too. You should check out “MullHolland Drive”, “Blue Velvet” or “Wild at Heart” etc… He also directed a great TV show called “Twin Peaks” that is great too! I love Hitchcock as well but I’m not really familiar with Capra’s work so I will make an effort to remedy that!
Thanks very much for your swift response with the homework. I can see that I have a very keen student here (where is everybody else’s hw though? Caught in the time delay that occurs here in Blogland?!). I want to offer you a little advice about how you record these kinds of phrases however. I think that you might find it more fruitful to write the phrases exactly as you see them written like this:
I’ve made a note of them…
(I) will see if I can get hold of any of their stuff
I’ve never really been into it
NOT like this (as in a dictionary)
made a note of
get hold of
to be into
If you record and learn phrases like this then it will be harder for you to remember because you have to think about transforming them to the right form… This is harder for your brain and you are more likely to make a mistake!!
So make a note of them as you see them and just be sure that you know when it is appropriate to use it. This will really help you develop your speaking skills as well as Skype (perhaps we could Skype some time!).
In this blog I have highlighted some phrases that you can record. Now find some different ones for yourself!
Here’s a photo of us with friends having breakfast at the Ecological Organic Market!
Have a good one folks!
