Welcome back to our English section. This time we are going to approach to one of the most well know festivities from the English speaking countries that is: Halloween. This annual holiday is celebrated each year on October 31 (in 2019 occurs on Thursday, October 31).

Its origins date from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, 2000 years ago, when they celebrated the end of summer and the beginning of the dark, cold winter ( a period often associated with human death ).So the night of October 31 it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. The following day November 1 was their New Year

The Romans invaded the UK and they combined their festivities with the existing ones from the Celts. The Romans commemorated the passing of the dead in Feralia (a day in late October) and they also celebrated the day of Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees, whose symbol is the apple, this could explain the tradition of bobbing for apples typical on Halloween.

Sometimes English phrasal verbs make sense… but another time, they seem totally random.

Phrasal verbs open up a new world of possibilities for speaking English.  They are used often in everyday conversation, so it´s very important that you know them

But, what is a phrasal verb? It is a phrase that’s made up of a verb and another word or two, usually a preposition but sometimes an adverb.

Phrasal verbs work by changing the verb’s meaning based on the preposition that follows them.

You probably already know a number of phrasal verbs. English phrasal verbs are everywhere, so one of the best ways to learn them is to try to listen for them. These phrases are commonly used, and would not be unusual to hear in a conversation. Do you hear a verb used together with another word very often? It might be a phrasal verb.

Hello again everyone! Here we are again, and this time we want to present some of the most common mistakes most of us make when writing or speaking. Keep on reading because sometimes overusing might have made you not realize you are one us so let´s begin!

HOW vs WHAT. It is quite common that whenever we think and translate a sentence such as ¿cómo se dice ….? and think How is the word…. in English? Instead, you should say what is the word…. in English? Alternatively you can say, How do you say… English?

TAKE vs HAVE. In English it is used have and not take when you refer to a drink, it can be a coffee, a beer or a glass of soda. You´d better use have and not take unless you want to be chased by the waiters.

DO vs MAKE. It is very difficult to distinguish for Spanish speakers because hacer is always the same in Spanish but to make it a little clearer we could say that DO is used for an action or a job while MAKE can be the synonym of CREATE / PRODUCE. For example, we do not say DO the bed, MAKE sport, DO a cake or DO a mistake but MAKE THE BED; DO sport, MAKE a cake and MAKE a mistake.

Popular English Idioms to Sound Like a Native Speaker.

To understand English as it is spoken in real life, you have to be familiar with idioms. English idioms are a group of words whose meaning isn’t obvious from looking at the individual words.

You need to learn what they mean, and how to use them. They have developed over time and so they might seem random to you.

Learning common idioms in English will help you fit in with most situations, whether it’s at a basketball game, over a beer, studying or going out on a date.

The key to understanding English idioms is never to read them in a literal sense. You need to learn them in context so you can understand their true meaning.

I will show you some of the most popular English idioms currently in use.

Welcome back to our English section! First of all we want to wish you a Happy New Year 2019! As you know it is time for new years resolutions and what is best than proposing yourself for an exciting adventure like visiting new parts of London or London if you have not already visited yet.

Whenever you go, you cannot forget to visit the exciting and free Museum of Natural Science, the British museum and the National Gallery (I do also recommend you to go to St. Patrick´s Cathedral, which is free if you visit durin mass time). You must take a walk on both sides of the river Thames. You can start from the Tower of London and then cross through Tower bridge visiting the town hall and stopping to take a lunch at Borough Market. Once the energies have been charged then take a glimpse of the most popular theatre: the Globe, stop at the Tate Gallery grab a coffee and appreciate its Art works, then enjoy London´s views from the Eye and if you are not tired enough visit the aquarium next to it. Then you can cross the Thames through Westminster Bridge and enjoy the Big Ben, The House of Parliaments and Westminsters Abbey. Hyde Park is great during sunny days and it is next to Buckingham Palace a must when you plan to visit London for the first time. If you enjoy shopping you cannot forget to visit Carnaby Street, the market of Portobello road on Saturdays and The Candem (not to mention the super expensive Harrods.) This is, however, one side of London everybody is familiar with (or at least ever heard about it!)
