You don’t just focus on grammar and vocabulary but cover

I was talking to native speakers all the time and I watched a

Very often. I watch Youtube channels, I read books in
English and I skype in English

JG’s phrasal verb song
Don´t Tell Me Off!
A rewriting of Taylor Swift´s Shake It Up, using phrasal verbs
by Nacho Barra, Julia Gutíerez, Victor Pecci, Maria Ribadavia, Paula Rodriguez and
Andrea Saleis
I always turn up late
I never seem to care
At least, that´s what JG says
At least, that´s what JG says
When I hang out with my friends
Wanna carry on don´t let it end
That´s what we all say
That´s what we all say
But I keep cruising….. saying it´s gonna be alright
But I´m never gonna give up up up up
And we never wanna grow up up up up
We just wanna shake shake shake
Don´t tell me off, don´t tell me off
And the aeroplanes they all take off off off off
And I really hate to wash up up up up
We just wanna shake shake shake
Don´t tell me off, Don´t tell me off!
