Welcome back to another exciting episode of our weekly English expression series. I hope you’ve been having a fantastic week filled with learning! And in today’s episode, I give you a lesson on the English expression “get a grip”.

First off, I got a fantastic question from one of my outstanding listeners about the past tense of the word “break” in a driving context. I got you covered! I’ll answer this burning question and provide you with excellent examples to make it crystal clear.

In today’s episode, I introduce a popular expression that you’ll definitely want to add to your vocabulary: “get a grip.” We discuss how you can use this expression to tell a friend to “get a grip” and control their emotions or ask someone to “get a grip” even while lost on a hike. And even tell your partner to “get a grip” and get things done. It’s a versatile and useful expression!

As always, there’s a fun pronunciation exercise to help you improve your spoken English. And we’ll be focusing on the T flap, a nifty little trick used in fluent speech. Mastering this will take your English to the next level, so don’t forget to give it a shot!

I’ve included a clip from the Netflix film “True Spirit” for you to enjoy. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to transcribe what is being said in the clip. It’s a great exercise to test your listening skills!

Remember, practice makes perfect, so be sure to focus and engage with the materials provided. Your English journey is important to me, and I’m here to support you every step of the way.

That’s all for now! Catch you in the next episode, where we’ll get on even more exciting content to help you on your English learning adventure. Until then, keep learning, keep exploring, and keep being amazing!
