reading and listening

We are going to do some work today. You are going to listen to a song and then read the lyrics

 Somebody that I used to know in  a version by Matthias Harris  (Thanks a bunch Marta)

Then you are going to do several excercises:

1st. Find these words in the text: /eɪk/, /rʌf/, /ðəʊ/, /hʌŋ/, /wɜːd/

2nd. Find a word or words that mean the same as:
-to have a clear meaning and be easy to understand
-say, pretend
-(idiom) to drop your moral standards far enough to do something bad or unpleasant
-stop having a friendly relationship with someone

3rd. "Have your friends collect your records and change your number
 I guess that I don't need that though"
Do you think you could express this idea with a different connector?

-"But had me believing it was always something that I'd done"
Can you tell me why the author has chosen this tense and not another?

Let's go back to childhood

How did you learn to speak your mother tongue? I guess we cannot remember. What about English?
Let me propose something and let's go back to "clean slate neurons". Try to overcome the fact that it IS for children and make the most out of it.
