  1. Exactly this, we all know that he was almost certainly drink driving.
  2. and what if Stoke decline? Too bad I imagine
  3. Loan deals usually run till the last day of June
  4. What a load of baloney, I suppose they should just turn a blind eye to high profile footballers breaking the law? Even if the Sun and Piers Morgan are a complete waste of space it should still be public knowledge. The only person who is degrading his career is himself; the facts are pretty black and white before being “blown out of proportion”.
  5. Poch is really going to have some work on his hands managing ol’ Jack.
  6. Struggling to see the problem of this article?
  7. Don’t think you can really preach that to us after Hourihane’s dive last year.
  8. Poch to Villa hahahaha. Probably the most unrealistic rumour/suggestion we’ve seen on OTIB and that is really saying something. More chance of them taking LJ!
  9. And this happens all around the world, particularly in areas which suffer from extreme poverty. Calling a race of people “scabby” because of living in these conditions is ignorance. The virus could have emerged from anywhere.
  10. And what do you propose for the overpopulation of China, which all these other factors inevitably stem from... a mass cull?
  11. PL representatives are in a meeting right now according to the main news outlets. You would imagine this weekend will be off for the Prem at least.
  12. Learnt what lesson, don’t contract a virus?
  13. I have a friend who receives lessons in French and Spanish on iTalki, and swears by it. I am even tempted to apply to be a teacher on there for some £ when I finish my studies as I have the appropriate Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification. Depends on your budget, but can often be cheaper and more convenient as it is through webcam, you’ll just need a decent internet connection for Skype. If you are learning Spanish you can get ridiculously cheap lessons from South Americans. https://www.italki.com As mentioned above there is nothing better than full immersion to learn a language. But platforms such as Duolingo can only take you so far, and I can’t imagine they can’t bring you to a full conversational level (correct me if I am wrong). I feel this is the way forward to bridge the gap. I would imagine the same amount of time for Spanish or Portuguese. I was in a B2 class for Spanish at the start of when I spent a year in Granada. I had only been doing Spanish for 2 years but had picked it up very quickly because of my level of French. Some of the other foreigners had studied it in for several years. By contrast, the Italian girl had only started it in the 2 months she had already been in Granada, and had bypassed all the beginner and intermediate levels and gone straight to upper-intermediate. When the whole class acted in shock when she said, the teacher said it is pretty commonplace as all the structures, functions and grammar are pretty much identical. I am certain this would be the same in European Portuguese, which is next on my list!
  14. French is a lot stricter with its grammar rules and sentence structure (I mean look at the way they ask a question, it's ridiculous!), whereas English can be a lot more "laissez-faire". I would say Spanish is a lot easier to learn for an English speaker, similar structures etc...and easier to pronounce. Just don't sound like the ones in the Costa Brava who make no effort with the accent.
