Hello everybody and welcome back to our weekly blog.

Over the last couple of months we have strived to upload interesting vocabulary explanations, grammar tutorials and some personal introductions in order to provide you with engaging content to complement your English language learning.

All of our posts include a blog post and an accompanying YouTube video.  That way you not only practice your reading, but also your listening and pronunciation.

Today’s post is slightly different because we have recorded a relatively long video with three of our teachers, Mickey, Jack and Lewis.

In the video we discuss some cultural differences between Spain and England, given that our monthly topic for November is Culture.

Perfect your listening!

In order to make the most of the content, we recommend you watch the video as many times as you can, and try to repeat some things we say out loud to practice pronunciation.

However, there are some words and phrases that you might not understand.

As a result, we have provided brief explanations and synonyms below.
