A free learn English quickly podcast lesson from Adept English.
Britain is one of a few countries where people just understand the benefits of queues and are willing for form a queue (Note: Not a que or que line!) for just about anything. Maybe the British people like the fairness of a queue or just want to avoid the embarrassment or arguments associated with pushing in ahead of people waiting for the same thing you are.
So if the queue is such a good idea why did the English language make queue such mess of creating the word we use for a queue. It’s difficult to spell, with even native English speakers miss spelling the word. Google has an incorrect spelling “queueing” as one of the most popular search words instead of “queuing”. And common miss spellings is to call a queue “que” or “que line”.
Then if you add the difficulty of how you pronounce the word queue because English speakers also use the same word sounds for Kew, Q and cue. It is no wonder that English language students find it all very confusing. So this week we will help you sort all of this out once and for all.
