And Nothing Else Matters...



This is a song for you to notice the different ways British and Americans pronounce the letter R. Pay attention to how the Metallica vocalist, James Hetfield, rolls the R when he sings .."and nothing else matters...", pronouncing the <tt> segment as an /r/. Ready to imitate him as you sing along? Please...


So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
Nothing else matters
Especially dedicated to David R.

Phrasal Verbs I


Check out the document below which gathers 150 phrasal verbs. I am glad to see that probably by now you know, consciously or unconciously, at least 50% of all the verbs shown in the list.

150 phrasal verbs

I would like to give you some advice on how to learn these verbs: As you may feel already, phrasal verbs are a somewhat complicated part of the English vocabulary, so I wouldn't suggest that you binge learn them. It is much better if you start using them little by little, building up your own personal dictionary of phrasal verbs in a sustainable way, ok?

20 more phrasal verbs for the road

And here follows an example of a home made dictionary of phrasal verbs, in case you find it useful:
