Along – preposition: Coco likes to walk along with us ( al lado, junto) when we go for a walk on the beach. There’s a cycle lane that runs along the length (a lo largo) of the promenade.
should (if) – Should you decide not to go, your money will be refunded.
Along – adverb: When I meet my dad for lunch, my sister likes to come along (acompañar).
I was walking along when I saw an accident. The policeman said, ‘There’s nothing to see here. Move along!’

Email from Ania from Mexico
Hi Reza and Craig!
This is Ania from Mexico, how are you guys? I just send (I’m just sending) this e-mail to say thank you for your fabulous podcast! I have been listening to your podcast since last year, every day when I walk the dog!
I moved to London last year with my boyfriend who is not English but Serbian. But he has lived in London for more than 30 years. I like London and I have adapted to life here very well and my first baby was born two months ago here in London.
I’m a biologist and I used to be a High school teacher in my country and I have to say that I have never studied English in my life until now. I’ve been studying English for the last 4 or 5 months but I feel a little bit slow in my learning, for some reason I can understand everything people say but I can’t speak properly I think it’s because the lack of practice (but when I’m alone I can speak fluently and clear. I Don’t know why.
My goal is to do the IELTS exam so I can study my Master(‘s) degree in forensic science. I’m struggling with my reading skills because the questions are tricky for me ?? It stresses me so much that I only have 20 minutes to read, understand and answer the tricky questions, also the writing task with the academic language is difficult for me. I can do it but it took me (a) long long time…!
What do you recommend me to do (I do)?
I like to go to school and it has helped me a lot but almost everything I know about English and vocabulary I have learned with you.
Thanks for everything.
PS. I wanted to send a voice message but I couldn’t use speakpipe
A comment on the inglespodcast website from Rosa Davis:
I need practising about reading and comprehension, and for that in my situation need read the text and listen because my study style is visual. I hope you can give me some advice on this point.
NLP how we learn – visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners
Visual learners: pictures, graphs, whiteboard (65%) – good with maps, good dress
sense and colur co-ordination, doodlers and notetakers.
Auditory: (30%) – good memory for conversations, podcast listeners, chatting, lectures,
dictation, songs, very verbal
Kinesthetic: (5%) – moving and fidgeting in class, need to get up and move, high energy level
Best learn through role plays, physical activity, group work, working with their hands
