Episode 22 - Grammar, Perception and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Have you ever seen 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.
