Gordon and his amazing jokes. So what have you got for us today Gordon?
Talking dogs? Gordon: OK. A man is driving slowly down a country road when he sees a chicken run in front of his car. Nothing strange about that — but then, he notices that the chicken has three legs. He starts to drive a bit faster — 40 kilometres an hour - but the chicken goes faster too. He drives a bit faster — 70 kilometres an hour — but the three-legged chicken just runs faster too. The man goes faster and faster but the chicken keeps running.
When they are both doing over one hundred kilometres an hour, the chicken turns a corner into a farm. Quickly, the man stops his car. The farmyard is full of three-legged chickens. There are three-legged chickens everywhere.

Does it taste good? Ravi: Never mind Tess, never mind. After every show, Tom talks about the language you heard and gives you ideas to help you learn. See you next time. Tess: Bye! Today I want to talk about verbs. That means that the forms are very easy to remember. For all regular verbs, we make the past form in the same way. So far so good. But there are a lot more of them. Did you hear the three forms? If you use a coursebook, or have a grammar book to study, it probably has a list of irregular verbs.
And the list is organised in three columns. Listen again. We use it in lots of different ways. Remember that this first column is not the present tense. Carolina flew to London and then she got the train to Newcastle. We never use this form alone — we use it with other verbs. Now we need to think about the best way to learn these irregular forms. There are a lot of irregular verbs in English, and some of them will be verbs that are new to you. The important thing is to learn the three forms of the verbs that you already know, so that you can use those verbs correctly. Make a page in your notebook for irregular verbs — make three columns and fill in the verbs that you already know.
Then write a sentence with each form as an example. Example sentences will help you to remember the forms. Then when you find a new verb you can add it to your list. You can find a link to a list of irregular verbs on our website — use it to check the forms of the verbs that you know and add them to your notebook. The weather. Listen to Ravi talking to the people who are going to do the quiz.
Now, some people say that the British talk about the weather all the time. I think one reason for that is that the weather here changes a lot.

See you next time.. Which ones do you agree with? Which do you prefer — cats or dogs? Add a comment below. I'm not really an animal lover and as the fourth guy said I think it's bet cruel to keep dogs in small places. If someday I thought of having a pet maybe I will have a turtle. I prefer dogs instead of cats because they are more loyal than cats, altough dogs usually are more demanding of time, they always are waiting for you. Cats just need someone whom feed them, they don't care who does it really. I love and dogs and cats, I think this pets is very fine each in its own way, but prefer to keep in my home two cats - girl and boy.
I prefer cats. I love them. I have two cats - Lila, my female cat, is all black, and Nabucco, my male cat, is completely white. They fight with each other all day. They are not complementary, I'm affraid. As for animals, I prefer cats. I have a cat, her name is Tequilla I like dogs too, but how said one person - it is easier to look after for cats.

If I lived in a cottage, I would have a cat and a dog and a goldfish too. Hi everyone first of all thank you for these amazing series. Second of all, I have a question regarding spelling or pronunciation, to be more specific in this part of the audio. Two nil.
Come on Vineeta. Vineeta's buzzer Ravi: Vineeta. Vineeta: Eagle. I've listened several times and always listen an 'A' instead of an 'E'.

For me, what Ravi says sounds like 'ei'. However, the player answered correctly, she said 'Eagle'. Could you please tell if this was a mistake of pronunciation or there is a way to identify when people spell an E but sounds like an A? Please, I'll really appreciate if you answer me this. Honestly, I've been struggling with spelling, overall when this happens with the vowels. I've listened to the recording and I think Ravi clearly says 'E'. I have a question. Could you tell me preposition or conjunction is correct?
I don't look after a pet "at" my home. If you say 'don't look after' it suggests that you have a pet but treat them badly instead of looking after them, which I guess is not what you want to say. ICP : Google Tag Manager.
