Lesson 25

What do the Scots think of the English?

Level: Beginner
Lessons

Lesson contents:

- As Callum says in the first interview, this was quite a "touchy subject" when we filmed, and has remained so to this day. In fact, Scottish independence might become a reality as there will soon be a referendum on the matter.
When we filmed, we were simply looking for a subject which would encourage people to use the present simple tense. We succeeded. The exercises for this clip will concentrate on the uses of this tense.

 

Always watch the video without subtitles first in order to train your ears! It's a good idea to watch several times until you feel the "music", before watching the version with subtitles. Your pronunciation will be much better if you follow this rule.

We had no idea how explosive the subject was when we filmed. Callum calls it a "touchy subject", which is indeed an understatement. We were very suprised to see hundreds of impassioned comments on our YouTube channel.
