Harp: So if you’re into something then it means you like the thing, for example the dinosaurs, but if you’re into someone, that means you have a romantic interest in them.
Jessie: Exactly. Should we do a dialogue?
Harp: We should.
Jessie: Hey Harp, how did the date go last week?
Harp: Umm. It went really well. It was really fun, but he hasn’t called me yet.

    Hi Culips team my name Albert I’m from California. I’m really into your podcasts,and I’ve listening to a lot of them. I have a question for you. In this podcast Harp said “in this example I’ve went on a date” is not better to said”I’ve gone on a date” I’m confused could you please explain this

  7. Harp Brar says:

    Hi Albert,
    Thanks for your email! You’re completely correct Albert, it was my mistake. “I’ve gone on a date” is correct. Thanks so much for pointing out this error, we’re working on correcting it right now.

    We try very hard to maintain a high level of quality at Culips ESL podcast, which is why we always listen to the podcasts ourselves. Sometimes, very rarely we hope, we miss something small but important.

    We think it’s important to keep Culips podcasts natural, so we don’t use word-for-word scripts. And sometimes on the show, just like in real life, we slip up!

    Thanks again for pointing out my mistake.

    As always we, love hearing from our listeners. Are there any expressions or topics that you would like to hear about in future podcasts? Send us another quick email if you can think of anything you’d like to learn more about and we’ll try to do an episode on it.
