Think of more weird hobbies

with 2 comments

Pastime SanFrancisco Graffiti Art

Take a look at the following list of hobbies…Weird, right? Actually, not all of them…but anyway, as you can see there are some “empty” categories: could you share here some hobbies for those ones?

Plus, do you think that hobbies can be stereotyped?

You want an extra-point? Try this:

And now, related to sports, can anyone guess the meaning of ‘resolutionary’ (urban English)?

Funny or politically incorrect guesses are accepted.

Which sport do you do?

leave a comment »

(Back from break and still ill…Nice timing)

Which sport do you do? A very common question in conversations. So when do we use ‘do’, ‘play’ or ‘go’ when we talk about sports? Check it out here.

And more practice here.

If you want to know more on sports, read/watch all these posts here. Some of them are easy, some others aren’t.

And now, tell me: Can you think of a sport which is particular to your country (Spain or other) but not played in many other places? Would you mind sharing it with us here?

This video might be useful because it shows situations in which we use vocabulary related to computers or Internet: log in, sign up, log off, browse, scroll down…Oops, most of them are formed with those creepy Phrasal Verbs…
