Vocabulary problem   
Can somebody help me understand the highlighted part. I didn t get it. Thanks in advance. (by the way, it s a podcast)
Josh: Hey, and welcome to the podcast. I m Josh Clark, there s Charles W. "Chuck" Bryant, and there is Jeri. So this is Stuff You Should Know, the "Dreaming of Summer in the Middle of Winter Edition."
Chuck: [LAUGHS] Oh my friend, ice cream is a year-round treat for me.
Josh: Yeah?
Chuck: Sure.
Josh: I know. I had some last night-
Chuck: Unfortunately. Oh yeah? What d you have? We re going to buzz-market a lot probably.
Josh: Rocky Road and Vividly Vanilla.
Chuck: What brand is that?
Josh: Kroger.
Chuck: Oh, yeah?
Josh: Yeah, they re delicious.
Chuck: Nice.
Josh: Yeah.
Chuck: Was it heavy or light?
Josh: It was light.
Chuck: [LAUGHS] Yeah.
Josh: Yeah, after reading this I was like, "Man, this is very light."
Chuck: A lot of air in there.
Josh: I taught myself to juggle with them.
Chuck: Oh. Well, that s exciting.
Josh: That was a cross-reference.
Chuck: Yeah. I m a Ben & Jerry s guy.
Josh: Well, yeah. It s great stuff.
Chuck: Yeah. Can t have too much of it, though, because I got the lactose issues.

the vocabulary is ok, juggling and cross-reference. I just didn t get them in the context.
But now the first sentence makes sense. Oh, I didn t think of it literally, juggling the containers. That s clear now.
The cross-reference sentence I didn t get either. He might have read about air in the ice-cream elsewhere, about its lightness. Maybe.

Apple Letters for the Classroom   
Hey Everyone,
The last few weeks have been super busy for me as I have been preparing for the incoming class of kids I will be teaching this year. Lots of lesson plans and curriculum to get ready. One of my favorite parts of getting ready is picking a theme and decorating the classroom. This year I decided to go with a true classic Fall / Autumn theme: Apples! I have made some apple letters that I thought I could share with other teachers here. Hope these can be useful for you and your learners as well. Enjoy!

Will probably or probably will???   
Please help me... :)
I have a doubt about the position of probably...
I think he will probably be a doctor.
I think he probably will be a doctor.
Is there a difference of meaning in the sentences above?
Thanks a lot...

14 Aug 2018


The adverb probably should take the mid position:
 I think he will probably be a doctor.
You can read more about the place of different adverbs in a sentence here

In memory of Claudio    
Claudio Azevedo: "Movies segments to assess grammar"HeartHeartHeart
I know Urpi, me too!
I discovered it while trying to find his blog following your request!

I notice, however, that few people are moved by it while so many teachers in the world have used his work!

That is probably what happens when you disappear, especially in National Education!!

It makes me sad and distressed.

 Rest in peace Claudio and be happy where you are, you have worked so hard for teaching in your country that you deserve the gratitude of all even if it is always unfair!

Hey, buddy, I shall never forget you, you were and are a great person!

Dear colleagues,
I m searching for pen pals from any part of the world. I m a primary teacher in Barcelona and I ve got a group of 23 students. They are 9-10 years old and learn English as a foreign language. In September we go back to school and I would like to find students similar to them so that we could write letters to you and practise our writting skills. In my opinion writting a letter is a gratifying process and younger generations still enjoy sending and receiving letters.
If you are interested you can send me an e-mail
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

I am very interested in your project!
Just sent you an email with my information and hope we can work together!

I also have a group of around 250 teenage students from countryside of Brazil who would love taking part of that!
If there is anybody who wants to share that experience with teenagers as well, just send me an email: naiacrespo@gmail.com

Best wishes!

Caption contest winner :)   

Dear All,

Thank you very much for your witty and resourceful captions, all of them made me smile. I really enjoyed some of them  (e.g. Jayho’s , ltdmagicman’s , abdo111b’s, etc.); however, as I can only choose one winner, I would opt for redcamarocruiser’s sentence:”Bumbo seat for infants knock off”.


Thank all of you for your participation again. Have a lovely week!  kiscsepo
