Burnistoun es un programa de sketches que salió al aire por primera vez en 2009. Aquí, Iain Connell y Robert Florence protagonizan un sketch sobre un ascensor que no habla escocés. Mira este divertidísimo vídeo en el que dos escoceses se quedan atascados en el ascensor que utiliza el reconocimiento de voz para seleccionar el piso.

La pronunciación escocesa puede ser un poco complicada de entender y sobre todo dependiendo de la zona, pero no te preocupes, en McPlaci English School hemos subtitulado este vídeo para ti.

Amazing Kids. 4-year-old discovers the secret about mothers.


Kids have a unique way of looking at the world.

Yesterday, I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter.

She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I told her not to do that.

“Why?” my daughter asked.

“Because it’s been on the ground, you don’t know where it’s been. It’s dirty, and probably has germs,” I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Mommy, how do you know all this stuff, you’re so smart.”

At first, I didn’t know what to say. After a moment’s thought, I replied:
“All moms know this stuff. It’s on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Mommy.”

We walked along in silence for a couple of minutes. My daughter was evidently pondering this new information.

After a while, she exclaimed, “OH… I get it! So if you don’t pass the test you have to be the daddy!”

I wore a big wide grin for the rest of the walk.
