Raymond Murphy interview - Grammar in Use over the past 30 years

Author Raymond Murphy discusses how Grammar in Use, the world's best-selling grammar series for learners of English, has evolved since its first publication by Cambridge University Press in 1985.

Many of us have learned and taught with this series... Congratulations on the anniversary!!!
Find useful phrases to refer to language learning: "self-study book", "essential reference tool", "not being wordy", "appropriate to the task", "study guide", "diagnostic tests" ... form an expert!.
Very easy to read and understand phrases but somehow difficult to produce on our own and put in our mouths!

Once in a Blue Moon

What does this idiom mean? "Not very often". "De higos a brevas", "de uvas a peras", "muy de vez en cuando", "una vez en un millón" ... Why?
The modern day definition of a Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in one month. A full moon occurs roughly every 29.5 days and on the rare occasions when the full moon falls at the very beginning of a month there is a good chance a Blue Moon will occur at the end of it. According to this definition we have a blue moon today.
For exact times of the Full and Blue Moons see the Full Moon Calendar.
