What a strange language English is!!

Do you want an apple?

In spoken English, ‘Do you’ contracts to ‘d’you’, which sounds the same as ‘Jew’. The ‘t’ in ‘want’ is silent, so we have ‘d’you wan’ which is (almost) idententical to ‘Jew on’.

New Material

13th March 2017

As I’m getting lots of views of B2/C1 wordlists, I’m creating exercises and games to practise them. Here’s the link to the word games where you can find jigsaw puzzles, crosswords and other puzzles: Word Games

I’m also developing material to practise for the Cambridge exams. Reading exercises are here for the PET (B1) exam.

Happy learning!!
