M: So birthdays. Birthdays, we celebrate birthdays, it's my birthday, it's my birthday party. We can say throw parties, I usually throw a party on my birthday. Is it on my birthday, or for my birthday, or in my birthday? At my birthday?
R: Never in, but on or for will be fine.
M: So on my birthday, or for my birthday? You can say that I enjoy getting books for my birthday, I enjoy getting nice jewellery. On my birthday or for my birthday, Rory, you said you go out with friends. So you didn't say anything just more interesting than going out with friends, really?
R: Like really, I have a very boring life when it comes to birthdays. This is why I was relying on the grammar, to be honest with you. And there was some nice grammar because we were focusing on the zero conditional. And there was also used to in there as well. But if you're younger, there are also activities in places to go to. So, we talked about soft play centres. Now, those are just places that, you know, you run around and throw yourself through, like into ball pits, for example, or everything's covered in like the soft layer. So if you land on it, then you won't hurt yourself. So that's quite good. If you're a young person, I imagine if you're an adult, it's not very entertaining. But for young people, it's good.
M: Yeah, yeah, you're getting ahead of yourself. Like, let's focus on what you can do on your birthday. What activities. What do we usually do on your birthday? You can say, alright, I enjoy cakes, I blow out candles, I get presents. And Rory, I've prepared a list...
R: Of things for me to do on my next birthday?
M: Exactly, exactly.
R: Come on then.
M: So, please also choose an activity for you. Again, we need you to show off your vocabulary and also like to be interesting and to be like for the examiner to see oh, wow. Like interesting activities. Right. So what do you usually do on your birthday? Choose one activity, write it in the comments. So Rory, on your birthday, you usually host a private movie screening.
R: Who has the facilities to do this?
