YESNYOU – Welcome back, everybody! What have you been up to lately?

hot-temperature-cartoonIt has been a long, hot summer here in Barcelona but finally September has arrived and we can all breathe a long, hot sigh of relief. What have you been up to? It is traditional here at YESNYOU to kick-off the new academic year with a little catch up with a few of our telephone trainers, and this year will be no different.

But first a little bit of language!What have you been up to

The question, “What have you been up to lately?” covers several questions in one neat, concise package. It asks “What have you been doing recently?”, “Have you done anything out of the ordinary or interesting?” and, if the ‘you’ is stressed, “What mischief have you been creating?”


For example, if you asked me what I’ve been up to I could say:

“What have you been up to?”

“My parents have been visiting, so we went out for dinner.”


“You look awful. What have you been up to?”

“I fell down some stairs.”

or finally…

“What have you been up to?”

“I went out for dinner with my parents last night and drank far too much sake! Then I fell down some stairs.”

I asked three of our favourite telephone trainers, Patrick, Carolyn and Georgina, what they had been up to on their summer holidays. Here’s what they said (and read carefully! There will be a quiz afterwards):
