Episode 22 - Grammar, Perception and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Remember that part when Charlie and Grandpa drink some magic soda and start floating towards a giant fan?
Remember how they got out of that tricky situation?
That's just like grammar!
Well ... kind of.
Today I talk about:
- how we don't use grammar so much for marking time but to give our personal perspectives on how we see the world;
- how some grammar is like floating around a giant tunnel;
- how some grammar is like having your feet planted firmly on the ground;
- how some grammar is more like a personal reflection than a description of reality.
If you're learning or teaching English, this episode will give you a new perspective on how language works.
And hopefully, you don't end up in that giant fan, and you get to explore the rest of the chocolate factory.
