Ficha 4.1 . IF ,PRESENT +FUTURE .

Hoy daremos el condicional formado con if,presente+futuro. Se usa para expresar eventualidades , advertencias ….. ..Mejor con ejemplos …..

— Si no arreglamos el fax no podremos atender a nuestros proveedores …….
If we don’t fix the printer up we will not be able to serve up our purveyors
— si no matriculamos al niño ya se quedará en la calle ……. If we don’t enrol the child yet he will be left without a seat

— Si no friegas los platos hoy no habrá postre del bueno ……….If you don’t wash up today it won’t be the good dessert
— Si continúas con esa actitud me veré obligado a cambiarte de clase…….. if you carry on with that attitude I will have no choice but moving you on to another class ( o simplemente decir… moving you to another class…… move you on to …tiene un significado más intenso en la acción del cambio)

Vemos claro el presente en la primera premisa y luego el futuro en la consecuencia .

Phrasal del día

Seguimos con PULL THROUGH , es curioso que signifique recuperarse de una enfermedad o salir de un problema ( la abstracción de la idea de “tirar completamente “) . Ejemplo ….. ………After a long-suffering bladder cancer he has pulled through ….. ……. Después de un largo proceso de cáncer de vejiga se ha recuperado.

Idiom del día

FLOG A DEAD HORSE – hacer algo sin ninguna esperanza de éxito. Literalmente es latigar a un caballo muerto. Ejemplo …….. …insistir para saber la verdad sobre el 11-s es una tarea inútil ……….insisting on knowing the truth about 9/11 is like flogging a dead horse .


Durante unos días vamos a ver palabras del carácter y personalidad que cuestan bastante de asimilar .
cheerfulCHEERFUL — jovial ,

20140525-193520-70520900.jpgSULLEN – taciturno
grumpy     GRUMPY, ,,,GROUCHY,,,,BAD- TEMPERED, gruñón,malhumorado,de mala leche

kind        KIND —  amable


Seguimos con el minuto 2, recordemos ayer minuto 1,  de “health check ” BBC 4 radio del 14 de mayo

“…..and my guess today is family doctor , Anne Robinson , thanks for joining us today , I’ve got a quick question for you…..
…………Are you a fan of loud music ? ,
………no Claudia I hate loud music , cause my nerves feel like they are jangling and I specially detest my partners intensity to turn jazz out very loudly
……. That’s not allowed loud jazz
…….no his music is particularly fancy when played loudly
……fair enough .
…….. We’ll if you’ve ever been to a rock concert and heard ringing in your ears for ages afterwards then many audiologists believe you’ve done in your ears so permanent damage , if you’ve done enough than can cause in your inner ear to age more quickly leading to hearing loss later on , one in twenty people in the world have a disabling hearing loss and sometimes it’s cause by a lifetime exposure to loud noises ,perhaps at work or listening to music on headphones or something like a single loud noise such as a gunshot close-by can cause permanent damage to the inner ear . Now our very own sound engineer on health check , Pete rollings ………. To be continued …”

A destacar …. NERVES feel like they are JANGLING– viene de la expresión nerve-jangling que significa estremecedor.( a la entrevistada no le gusta la música alta que pone su pareja).
…..CLOSE-BY — cercano
….. HIS MUSIC IS PARTICULARLY FANCY …. aquí fancy tiene la acepción de estrambótico.
….. DISABLING HEARING LOSS .. inhabilitante pérdida de audición
….. INNER EAR…. oído interno
…..FAIR ENOUGH …. me parece bien , justo….

  5. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Very good blog!

    This is a really good read for me, Must admit that you are one of the best bloggers I ever saw.Thanks for posting this informative article.

  7. The heart of your writing whilst sounding reasonable at first, did not settle well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being amazed.

  8. The root of your writing while appearing agreeable initially, did not sit very well with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do well to fill in those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly be amazed.

  9. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
