I present you 3 new episodes. All 3 are about the football World Cup in Brazil.
Cancelled Road to Civilization aka the World Cup Episode
We got together with my cousin Honza to talk about the ongoing World Cup in Brazil.
In the first part we talk about who we think might win it, who our favourite teams are and we also touch upon the fact that Muslim players didn’t drink during the match because of Ramadan. After this there is a language analysis section in which my dog also makes an appearanace.
In the second part of the interview I and my cousin ponder about what football teams we could hypotetically play for in the World Cup considering our skills. Why did Luis Suarez bite the Italian player? What are our theories behind this incident? We answer thse questions and also some more from the listeners. Again, there is a short language analysis at the end.
With Ethan on the Brazilian Demolition
After watching the demolition of the Brazilian national team by Germany, I took the initiative and called a native speaker Ethan (you might know him from previous episodes) to hear his own comments on this amazing match.
We spoke about the match, about how both nations’ supporters must feel now and how their feelings can idiomatically be expressed in English. We also briefly touched upon the England national team as well as Luis Suaréz.
After the Skype call proper, I played an association game with myself and then actually placed it before the chat with Ethan.
