Hi, it’s Tim from domineingles.com.br. As a lot of our Tim and Tammy friends know, we’re just about ready to _________  our twelfth Tim and Tammy Phrasal Verb story. Those who know our project know that we create these special stories with our Tim and Tammy characters that contain lots of Phrasal Verbs. In each story, we ___________  specifically on one letter of the alphabet.

And in our next story, which we will launch next week if everything _________   _______ , our characters are going to visit the North Pole and they’re going to meet Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Now do you know Rudolph? It’s a Christmas _________  ; it’s not a true story, of course; but it’s a very ______-_______   story in the United States, which was written in _________  . So you can imagine how that’s already a part of the American culture.

So our friends are going to visit Rudolph in the North Pole, and you are going to learn a little bit about this story, and also learn the Phrasal Verbs in the story, which is the most important part, of course.

And I’m ____________  here in my hands a classic edition of the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. This one was written in 1958, but the ____________  I have is from 1974. (I don’t know if I should tell you this, but this was a year after I was born.)

Well, anyway(s), I was reading this story as we were preparing our Tim and Tammy story, and I saw a Phrasal Verb in here, which I taught you several years ago. (I guess this won’t be a _________  if I tell you that Rudolph had a very shiny nose.) And, initially, in the beginning of the story, he’s not very _________  by the other reindeer. And he couldn’t even _______  in their games.

And it says here: Rudolph couldn’t even play hide-and-seek with the rabbits. His glowing red nose gave him away every time.

Now if you remember, a few years ago, I showed you a Monica comic strip (Monica & Cebolinha comic strip) in English; and I taught you this phrasal verb “give someone away”. (It was a little _____________  at the time; some people didn’t like my tip because they thought I was criticizing, which I wasn’t.) But you’ll notice that this book uses this: “His nose gave him away every time.”

Now go back to that tip that I taught you a few years ago and review this phrasal verb, and see how important it is to know it; ok?

Phrasal Verbs with P And, one more thing. I’m going to [gonna] scan this book – this is one that I grew up _______  ; I had it ever since I was one year old; so I had it all my life, and my kids read it – and I’m going [gonna] scan it; and I’m going to [gonna] _______  my father _______  it to you; and I’m going to [gonna] teach you the expressions in this story as a special bonus for those who _____________  our story in the first week. OK?

I don’t think you can even buy this ____________  . They have other versions, but this classic version here – it’s hard to find. I saw it on ebay, but it wouldn’t be very cheap. But I’m going to give it as a bonus to those who purchase our story in the first week. So stay _______ ; OK?

So have a great week, and I’ll see you next week. Bye bye.

Obrigado Tim. Esse é o melhor método para aprender “Phrasal Verbs”. Todos os dias abro meus e-mails ansioso por novas lições. Deus abençoe você e sua família.

Que legal ouvir isso, Rogerio! Obrigado pelo seu comentário!

Hi Tim,  
What a coincidence! Just yesterday I was watching a Friends episodie that Phoebe use this phrasal verb to talk to Joey! 
I cant wait to have your new PV story! 

Phrasal Verbs are just like people, once you meet them, you seem them all over the place! 😉 Thank you for sharing!

By the way, do you remember what episode it was and what they were talking about?

It’s always a pleasure to hear from someone with extieprse.

I also doubt that’s what President Obama intended, but it’s a funny thought. Then again, in the words of Amulek, “that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world.” Most of us would consider that hell, but Ted Kennedy spent the majority of his life in the Senate. Given the choice, why wouldn’t he stick around for the eternities? 🙂

Congrats on your betrayal and all that. I have a mystic and a defiler both, so no need for me to betray. Well, except the defiler’s a high elf that I betrayed from mystic, and the mystic is a Sarnak that I betrayed from defiler, but you get the idea.

Tim and Tammy adoro suas dicas e sempre fico feliz em ler seus e-mails, pena que demore um bocado pra vcs escreverem, mas mesmo assim I like it!

Thank you, Roni! It’s great to know that you enjoy our tips, even though they take a while to arrive sometimes. You know the saying: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” 😉

Hey Tim, it´s true! I have some of yours stories and everytime I see one pv being used I remember learning from yours stories. The Friends episodie is from season 7 The one with Monica´s Thunder.  Joey has an addition to play a caracter who is 19 and he asks Phoebe if he can pass for 19 yrs (???!!!) and she says: if you want to look 19 you should do something about your eyes… They give you away! There´s too much wisdow in there … Of course she was not being honest.  You´ve been helping me a lot Tim, please keep doing this great job!  

All the best for you and your family!

It’s so cool to hear that our stories have helped you, Vania! That’s what it’s all about! And it’s so rewarding to hear stories like yours where someone hears a phrasal verb they learned here and recognizes it and understands it. Thank you again for sharing your experience with the Friends episode. Maybe we can prepare a tip about it one of these days.

You know Tim, I always say my students that although I have an English school,or I´m an English Teacher, I still have an american teacher, who teaches me once in a while.
And I´m proud of it because I always brush up on sth. But I´d like to say that I have these english classes once a week rsrs I´m Kidding.
Since I moved to Brazil I´ve been getting along only with Brazilians but my accent give me away sometimes and people keep on asking me, “by the way where are you from?”

Happy Christmas for you and family and thanks for all the helpful tips. And please never give up teaching us.

And I am proud to have a “student” like you! Actually, you’re more than a student: you’re a fellow teacher and friend! Thank you for being a part of our project! I hope you, too, have a great end of the year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, too! (But I suspect we will still be “speaking” again before the holidays.)

Hello, Tim! I’m so glad you’re lauching a new e-book! And I’m happier because it’s about the only holiday I love: Christmas. I’m looking forward to purchasing it. Are you going to launch it before Christmas? And like you I love those old books! I have few books which belonged to my parents, now they belong to me, and, in the future, I hope they’ll belong to my son. Most of my family’s old books were given to charity. A pity… Hope to hear from you soon! :o)

Hello, Patricia! Thank you so much for your interest! We’re actually going to launch our 12th story tomorrow. I know what you mean about old books, they’re hard to give away. They feel like part of the family sometimes. 🙂

That´s great.
I improved  my  enghish   with it 

That’s great, Dora!
