OMG. Is it December already?!?!
Time flies when you’re having fun! My life is racing by in a blur (but a blur of awesomeness) and Ican’t believe we are just a few short weeks away from 2014! WOW!!. Oh, and by the way, dearest, you look really fabulous today. Did you do something with your hair? Flip it, baby!
SAVE YOUR ASS IN A MINUTE & A HALF!
Today I launch my new video series “Save Your Ass in a Minute and a Half!” – I will take 90 seconds or less and indentify, analyze and SOLVE one common mistake in English. So that you don’t have to. (I love doing your dirty work!) I’m proud to debut the first one today….got 90 seconds? Let the ass-saving begin, darling! Click here!
And in case you missed it, here’s the link for tickets to my last workshop of the year, 14 December at Boom Chicago!
WHAT’S UP IN BUFFILAND
I’ve been working on the Epica album, I did a Master Class for songwriters in Leeuwarden, admiring the great reviews of Tim Knol’s new album, enjoying my Belgian clients Amoy Famray’s great debut “The Mind of Man”, did a Master Class in pepernoten and presentations for some special 8 year olds, coached for The Voice of Vlaanderen, saw my sweet “30 Ways to Save Your Ass” at lots of bookstores (hint hint wink wink), got Apple TV (my couch has never been so crowded), wrote exams, corrected exams, missed Berlin, started sketches for my third book, and hid some presents. How was your week?
HOW WELL-DRESSED ARE YOUR IDIOMS?
Take this fun test on idioms related to clothing and find out right now! Waarom zou je nog wachten?
YOUR QUESTIONS – ANSWERED!
“Hi Buffi, why is it “That looks easy” but “I can do it easily?” – From my Master Class last week (the one in Leeuwarden, not for the 8 year olds).
When we describe a verb, we use an adverb. This is a word that usually ends in “ly” (quickly, slowly, easily, etc). However, not all verbs have action. If you have a non-active verb (described in Chapter 1 of my first book “Rock Your English!”) such as feel, seem, appear, and a few others, then you don’t need the adverb form but the adjective form. Crazy, right? That’s why we say “Shelooked at him angrily” but “She looked angry.” Hope that helps!
HATE TO LOVE YOU AND LEAVE YOU…
But I have more exams to correct (it’s the most beautiful time of the year…to be a teacher!)students to help, children to feed and tickle and dance with, and some cool projects coming up that I need to prepare for. Thank you so much for letting me slip into your inbox today, looking forward to coming back for more in just 7 short days!
Sending you a day filled…nothing. Just a huge couch with your favorite people on it. Oh, and maybe a bowl of salt and vinegar chips. OK, and while we’re at it a gin and tonic. Or two. And did I mention the fireplace? That too. And the softest fluffiest socks known to man (angora-free, of course!) …in my head. (HOW MANY DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS?!?!?)
