ALPHABET GAME "B"

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, everyone!

Today is the second day of our Alphabet Game, so we are concentrating on the letter B. Can you guess the missing word below?

Sentence: We went out last night and met some beautiful _____. 

Here's your hint: this was from a Daily Vitamin lesson where we compared British and American English. There are many words that will make this sentence correct, but we are looking for the word that is used in British slang and refers to one of the sexes, and it's an animal. 

Leave us your answer on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later. We will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's
Daily Vitamin email.

Good luck!

Good morning, everyone!

Starting tomorrow, and for the next 26 Daily Vitamin lessons (May 22nd until June 28th), for the 5th year in a row, we're going to be playing the Alphabet Game, with the objective of learning new vocabulary and reviewing past Daily Vitamin lessons. And we're going to give you the opportunity to win some prizes!

1st Prize: A six-month General-English online course valued at 230.00€. It includes the initial level test, guidance with an online tutor, telephone contacts and written tutorials.

2nd Prize: a three-month 'English-for-Work' online course valued at 120.00€. It includes the initial level test, guidance with an online tutor, telephone contacts and written tutorials.

3rd Prize: Fresh'n Rebel Rockbox CUBE Bluetooth speaker, valued at 30.00€.

Each day we will give you a definition or a clue for a vocabulary word or expression that starts with a specific letter of the alphabet. We'll start with the letter "A", then the letter "B", then the letter "C", etc. until we finish all 26 letters in the English alphabet. We will send the clue in the Daily Vitamin lesson and we will post it on our Facebook and Twitter social media sites:

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ZigguratLanguageServices

Twitter: https://twitter.com/EnglishDaily

IMPORTANT: To participate (and win one of the prizes), you should:
1) be a follower of at least one of our social media sites (either Facebook or Twitter).
2) share today's initial contest post (May 21st) on at least one of our social media sites.
3) post the correct answer on one of our social media sites each day. At the end of the 26 lessons, the person with the most points will be the winner.

HOW TO GET POINTS AND WIN
For posting a correct answer on our Facebook or Twitter pages, each Alphabet Game participant receives one point automatically. Between all the participants that post correct answers each day, the participant who posts the correct answer first receives 10 additional points, the participant who posts second receives 9 additional points, the participant who posts third receives 8 additional points, etc. The participant who posts tenth receives one additional point. So, the first 10 people to post get 1 point for posting plus the additional points for their 1st-through-10th-place standing.

If you have any questions, let us know (didactic@ziggurat.es). We are looking forward to all of you participating!
