ALPHABET GAME "R"

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your weekend was fantastic!

Today's answer begins with the letter R. Here’s your challenge. 

Sentence: Did you see that guy? It was my turn at the intersection, but he went instead. Doesn't he know that I had the r_____ _____ _____?

Here's a hint: this is not just one word. It's a three-word phrase that means "the car or person that should proceed first; the person or car that other people or cars yield to."

ALPHABET GAME "M"

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Friday everyone!

Today is our last Alphabet Game lesson of the week. We are now halfway through the game. We hope you are enjoying it. 

Today’s answer begins with the letter M.

Sentence: It's important that you schedule some _____ time. It will help you relax. 

Here is a hint to help you: this expression, "_____ time," means "time for yourself" or "time for self-care."

Do you have an idea of the correct answer? 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 Tuesday’s Daily Vitamin email, not on Monday, since there will be no Daily Vitamin on Monday as it is a holiday in Barcelona (Segunda Pascua).

We will see you on Tuesday for the letter N.

Have a fantastic weekend!

EXPRESSIONS WITH ‘MAY’ (AS THE CASE MAY BE)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Monday and good morning, everyone! 

This week we will begin the 2019 Alphabet Game on Wednesday. So for Monday and Tuesday, we will look at two expressions with the modal verb May.

Today's expression is: AS THE CASE MAY BE

Example 1: It's important to consider a potential new employee's experience (or lack of experience, as the case may be).

That's it for today. Thank you for reading!
