Letting New Vocabulary In

To let someone in = to allow someone to enter a house, room or a place. Kůzlátka weren’t allowed to let anyone in while their maminka was out. But eventually, they did let the wolf in and we all know how they ended up..

Learning Grammar Without Studying

Grammar is one essential part of language. But we do not have to cram it into our heads from grammar pages in course books thinking this is the way people must learn a language. It is not true.
The truth is that we learn grammar naturally if we surround ourselves with the language, observe it, talk about it with fluent speakers, and try to speak it ourselves.
Why these things? Is it ever possible that it is so simple?
