Transcript Snapshot (Marry vs Merry)


Hey guys, you’re listening to the English Made Simple Podcast this is episode number 245, number two hundred and forty five, numero dos cientos cuarenta y cinco.

Welcome amigos, my name is Milena from,

Hope everyone is fine and dandy.

Today’s show is a bit different. We are going to travel back in time.

Going all the way back to episode 64. So a couple of years in the past. Some of you hadn’t been there yet.

I decide to replay this episode because it’s so relevant now before Christmas and the end of the year.

Just something to note before I play it though.

I pulled this episode out of the EMS archive where I taught you various English expressions, bit of cultural history and some grammar, for example using homophones and what are those anyway.

I used to use more Spanish words here, just a heads up to those non-Spanish speakers.

However, having said that, it’s still easy to follow, there’s a lot of gold nuggets in there.

Here it comes… Enjoy!


Guess what, I saw a sign outside a shop it said “9 sleeps till Christmas”….
This is how people normally count down towards a holiday. We can say 9 days to go or 9 sleeps to go. Basically, we have to sleep 9 times before the actual Christmas…. That’s a bit of a literal translation.

In this episode we are going to go freestyle. I want to mention something called Homophones. Homophones refer to words that sound the same but they are spelled differently and have a different meaning.
