Shopping - 16/17 ep.9

Shopping - 16/17 ep.9

In this week's Premier Skills English podcast, Rich and Jack talk about the latest round of Premier League matches. They also take a look at different sentences that use the present perfect and look at how it is used in different situations. They also take a shopping trip and Rich buys a strange item of football merchandise. We also have news about our Premier Skills Fantasy Football team and a new football phrase for you to guess. Enjoy!

How much did you understand?

Vocabulary

In the podcast, Rich and Jack used some words and phrases that might be new for you. You can see two examples here: 

Son Heung-min was man of the match in Tottenham's top of the table clash against Manchester City.

A first defeat of the season for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City team.

There were a few more tricky words in the podcast. Can you remember all of them? Try the activity below, then, listen to the podcast again to hear how we used the words in context. This can really help with understanding.

Activity 1: In this activity, have a look at the vocabulary and try to match it to the correct definition.
Can you match the words to their definitions?

Dele Alli scores for Tottenham against Manchester City.

Present perfect to talk about the recent past.

In this week's podcast, Jack and Rich spoke about the present perfect. One common use of the present perfect is to talk about the recent past. Take a look at this example from the podcast:

I've bought this fantastic Aston Villa bread press.

From the context of the dialogue, Jack and Rich are in a shopping centre, we know that Rich has bought the bread press recently. But, sometimes we might want to emphasise this more and we might use the word 'just' to show this. The above example would then become:

I've just bought this fantastic Aston Villa bread press.

For example, if you arrive home late and your dad is watching a match on TV, you might ask him what is happening. He might say:

Arsenal have just had a player sent off.

This would mean that Arsenal had a man sent off recently, probably within the last 10 minutes. However, context is very important when we speak about the recent past. In this example, 'recent' might mean a few weeks rather than a few minutes!

I've just got back from my holidays in Italy.

Now in this activity, learn a little more about the present perfect and test your understanding. 

Activity 2: Take a look at the sentences. There is a mistake in each of them. Try to correct them.
Can you correct the mistakes?

Dimitri Payet scored the best goal of the weekend against Middlesbrough.

Present perfect with superlatives

Superlatives (the best, the worst, the most interesting etc.) often go together with the present perfect. In the podcast, you heard these examples:

That's the best goal I've ever seen.

That's one of the most pointless items I've ever seen.

Look at these sentence stems below and copy and complete your answers in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Which one doesn't use the present perfect?

  1. The best goal I've ever seen was...........

  2. The most exciting match I've ever watched was.........................

  3. The furthest I've ever travelled to see a match was..........

  4. The coldest place I've ever been to was............

  5. The hottest place I've ever visited was..............

  6. The happiest memory that I have got is ..............

  7. The best song that I've ever heard is...........

Welcome

Rich: Hello my name’s Rich

Jack: and I’m Jack

Rich: and welcome to this week’s Premier Skills English podcast

Jack: Where we talk about football and help you with your English.

Social

Jack: This week, we’ve got a new player article. It’s all about Tottenham’s South Korean forward Son Heung-min striker. He’s been playing really well recently and you can find out more about him, practise your reading skills and test your football English with the quiz at the end of the article.

Rich: Yeah, there is some pretty tricky vocabulary in the quiz this week. What’s a one-two or a feint? Find out in the article and quiz. But you’re right, Jack. Son has been playing well and I think he was the man of the match in Tottenham's top of the table clash against Manchester City at the weekend.

Jack: Yeah, he was good and as an Arsenal fan it’s difficult to say, but Spurs are looking good again this season.

Rich: Yes, it was a great win for Spurs and a first defeat of the season for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Jack: In last week’s podcast, we spoke about some idioms and one of those idioms was ‘to run away with something’. In sport, this idiom means to win a competition very easily.

Rich: We asked you if Manchester City are going to run away with the Premier League title this season. And we had lots of different opinions. Some of you, like Davilillons from Spain and Elghoul in Algeria, think City will run away with the league this season. Others, like Alex in Ukraine, think that there is no way City will run away with the title and others, like Kwesimanifest in Ghana, think it’s still too early in the season to know.

Jack: I wonder if anybody has changed their mind after Tottenham's win against City. I have. I think this season will be close again and four or five teams have a chance of winning it - including Arsenal.

Rich: And Liverpool, too!

Latest news 

Jack: Here are the Premier League headlines this week.

News sting

Rich: Spurs beat City 2-0 to end Pep Guardiola’s unbeaten start to the season.

Jack: Yes, Guardiola has lost for the first time. An own goal by Alexandr Kolorov and a nice goal by Dele Alli - assisted by Son Heung-min gave Spurs a well-deserved victory and Manchester City something to think about.

Rich: Arsenal strike late to beat Burnley.

Jack: Arsenal are up to third place in the Premier League and have now won five Premier League matches in a row. The Gunners had to wait until the fifth minute of injury time to get the winner. Defender Laurent Koscielny got the goal to give Arsenal a 1-0 win.

Rich: Dimitri Payet saves West Ham.

Jack: Dimitri Payet scored the best goal this weekend to get West Ham’s equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough and give West Ham their first point in 5 matches. Payet’s first goal of the season was a wonderful goal - he took the ball past five defenders before hitting the ball past the keeper.

Jack: I’m here on Oxford Street in London with Rich who has been doing a spot of shopping....So Rich, what HAVE you bought?

Rich: I’ve bought this fantastic Aston Villa bread press.

Jack: A what? A bread press? What on earth is a bread press.

Rich: Look it’s here. Let me show you.

Jack: Wooahh! Careful Rich. That taxi nearly knocked you over! You must be really excited about this. Yeah, errr nice. I still have no idea what it is.

Rich: It’s for your toast in the morning. Use the press to print AVFC onto the bread and then make your toast Fantastic for all Villa fans!

Jack: What if you want jam?

Rich: What do you mean?

Jack: When you put jam on your toast you can’t see the writing. And you’re going to eat the toast, aren’t you? It’s one of the most pointless things I’ve ever seen. Can you get your money back?

Rich: Alright, alright - I’ve still got the receipt, I’ll take it back.

Jack: How much did it cost?

Rich: 10 quid

Jack: 10 quid! With 10 quid we can get a full English breakfast with toast but just butter - no letters! Wah wah!

Language

Rich: We always take a look at some language in the podcast and in the last two section of the podcast, Jack and I used lots of examples of the present perfect.

Jack: We create the present perfect using the verb have and then a verb in the third form. So, you heard Rich say ‘I have bought this fantastic Aston Villa bread press.’ He said ‘I have bought’.

Rich: We’re using the present perfect to describe something that has happened recently that has just happened. Imagine that I’m watching Liverpool play Arsenal on TV. Jack goes to the toilet and then comes back.

Jack: What’s happened? Have I missed anything?

Rich: Liverpool have scored twice and Arsenal have had a man sent off!

Jack: Really!!

Rich: No, nothing’s happened. It’s still 0-0.

Jack: In that dialogue there were five examples of the present perfect. Listen again to the dialogue and see if you can hear all 5.

Jack: What’s happened? Have I missed anything?

Rich: Liverpool have scored twice and Arsenal have had a man sent off!

Jack: Really!!

Rich: No, nothing’s happened. It’s still 0-0.

Jack: A more difficult phrase from earlier is when I was talking about Rich’s new bread press and I said that it was ‘one of the most pointless things I’ve ever seen’

Rich: Here, Jack is using the present perfect to talk about something that he has seen for the first time. We often use ‘never’ and ‘ever’ with the present perfect. We use never in positive sentences to mean something that is negative and ever to ask questions.

Jack: I might say: I’ve never been to Russia or have you ever eaten sushi?

Rich: And to emphasise something even more we often use a superlative form. So you could say the best ...  that’s the best goal I’ve ever seen.

 

Jack: I also used a superlative and the present perfect when I was talking about that bread press. I said ‘it’s one of the most pointless things I’ve ever seen’.

Rich: Alright! Don’t go on about it. If you want to practise this language a little bit more, we’ve got some activities and examples further down this page.

Football Phrase

Rich: Have you got a football phrase for us this week?

Jack: Yes, I have, but first last week’s football phrase. The phrase was ‘it’s a marathon not a sprint’ and it is used to describe something that lasts a long time so there is no point in using all of your energy straight away. The Premier League season is a marathon not a sprint so Manchester City have started fast but who knows what will happen in May?

Rich: A special well done to Liuboymr and Alex from Ukraine! You were the only listeners to get the phrase right last week. It was definitely a difficult one.

Jack: This week’s phrase is to **** ****. This phrase has got two words and outside of football the phrase means to return to our house. You might say to your friend after the cinema ‘Shall we go for something to eat or **** ****? In football, the expression is more idiomatic. The second word in the phrase means the net or the goal and the first word is the part of your body that sits on your shoulders. To **** **** means to score a goal with this part of your body.

Rich: Wow! You got there in the end, Jack!

Jack: It was quite a complicated definition - let’s see if anyone can get it right.

Prediction

Jack: A bit of a disaster on our predictions last week, Rich.

Rich: Yes,I  went for a draw between Spurs and Manchester City, you went for a Man City win and so did over 80% of our listeners.

Jack: So no points for anybody this week. So you’re still winning, Rich, going into the international break.

Rich: Of course, so there are no Premier League matches this weekend. But we will be back with another prediction in this week’s podcast and we’ll take a look at how Premier League players perform while they are away with their countries.

Jack: Right, that’s all we have time for this week. Don’t forget to write your answers to our questions and make a guess at our football phrase in the comments below. And remember to take a look at our Fantasy Football page and join in the discussions!

Rich: Bye for now and enjoy your football!

What do you think?

In this week’s podcast, we spoke about a strange item of football merchandise and using the present perfect with superlatives.

  1. Have you ever bought anything with the name of your football team on it? A shirt, a scarf, or maybe something a bit different?

  2. Rich bought something that he really didn't need. Do you often buy things that you don't need? Why do people do this?

  3. In the section above, there are seven sentences that use superlatives and the present perfect. Can you complete the sentences?

I used to buy scarfs with the names of my football team Metallist and their international rivals on it. Unfortunately those times are gone. My team was not allowed to take part in the current Ukrainian championship because of the debts to players and trainers. I gave as a present all the scarfs butone. :-)

The best goal I've ever seen was not the goal but basketball shot when during the Olympic Games the Russian team beat Americans in, if I'm not mistaken 1972, 50 : 49. The match ended 48 : 49 but there were problems with the timer and referees gave additional 3 (only three ! seconds) to play. The ball was at the Soviet (then not Russian) side near the Soviet basket. The player gave a long pass under the USA basket, and, behold, the player under the shield got th ball into the basket. VICTORY !!!

The most exciting match I've ever watched was Metallist Kharkov - Dynamo Kiev some years ago in Kharkov. We won 3 : 0 and it became the worst defeat of Kievites during the existence of Ukrainian Premier League. Even Shakhtior Donetsk could win against Dynamo no more than TWO goals to my surprise.:-)

I have bought a new gloves and it's a best gloves that I ever used
Yeah, sometime I bought a lot of really didn't need but I done it again and again maybe because of the seller or some good convincing conversation.
1. The best goal I've ever seen was Ibra's bicycle kick.
2.The most exciting match that I ever watched was Liverpool vs Ac Milan UFA match.
7. The best song I've ever heard is Heal the world.
#correct me, and I have a question why the question 7. used verb "Is" but the Q1 used "Was"

The Question 7 has "is" because, I think, you still can listen to the song live, whereas IBRA's goal is in the past and so we should use "it was" in Question 1. Though it's not too important. One could use both "was" and "is" in both questions, IMHO.

That's a really good answer. It's a difficult question, but you're right. We normally describe art, music and films in the present and events in sport in the past. I know that Rich thinks that football is art so he might use 'is' to talk about the best goal he's ever seen, but it is more common to say 'was'.

Hi Poui

Your question is an interesting one. Question 1 uses the past simple because the goal happened in the past at a specific time. In question 7, we use the present because the song still exists and it is more general - you have probably listened to the song many times. If we were speaking about a specific concert we would use the past.

Most of your sentences are really good. I've made a couple of corrections to your first sentence. I hope the corrections help.

I have bought some new gloves and they're the best gloves that I've ever used.

I'll give you a clue. When someone finishes college or work, where do they usually go?

The best goal I've ever seen was asamoah gyan'sgoal at the world cup in 2006 within 2 minutes against Czech Republic.

The most exciting match I've ever watched was Manchester United vrs Manchester City in the 1st half of the 2015/16 season.

The furthest I've ever travelled to see a match was in kwahu nkawkaw in the eastern region of ghana.

The coldest place I've ever been to was kwahu obomeng in the eastern region of ghana.

The hottest place I've ever visited was tamale in the northern region of ghana.

The happiest memory that I have got is when i received my prize from the premier skills english team.

The best song that I've ever heard is no where cool by manifest from ghana.

The best goal I've ever seen was Madjer's heel winning with Porto.

The most exciting match I've ever watched was the World Cup semi-final in 1970 between Italy and Germany.

The furthest I've ever travelled to see a match was Highbury London in 1978
The coldest place I've ever been to was Tiaret in Algeria Highlands.

The hottest place I've ever visited was Bechar in South West Sahara desert.

The happiest memory that I have got is wishing Happy New Year 1976 in South Bechar with Japeneses offering their own Whisky bottles.

The best song that I've ever heard is.perhaps Elvis Presley "Tutty Frutty"
1. The only thing I have ever bought is a scarf green and white with RCK written on one side.
2. People are curious with no mind from time to time. Is it the effect of the moment or the place?
Phrase : Head back.

Hi Elghoul

The first word of the phrase is correct but not the second.

Please, tell us more about your visit to Highbury in 1978. We would love to hear more about this trip. I imagine that your journey was an interesting one?

The best goal I've ever seen was the Zidane's goal in the final of the Champion League against Bayer Leverkusen in 2002

The most exciting match I've ever watched was.Las Palmas - Cordoba CF. It was the last match to up a first division and Cordoba CF won in the injury time

The furthest I've ever travelled to see a match was to Pontevedra. I went from Cordoba and took 15 hours on a bus

The coldest place I've ever been to was in Toledo. It was winter and there was -7º degrees
The hottest place I've ever visited was my gym's sauna

The happiest memory that I have got was when Cordoba C.F.up to First Division Spanish

The best song that I've ever heard is.Bohemian Rhapsody of Queen

Thanks for your message Emil and thanks to Alex for his corrections below. I totally agree with all his corrections. I would also change the word 'pointless' because if you are buying items that you like then they are not without point. Also, 'stuff' is uncountable so we don't use the article 'a'. I might say something like: 'I love buying new stuff about my favourite club.'

Hope that helps.

I bought an Arsenal shirt in 2006, the same one the team had in the last year of Highbery.
