Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1970. Since then they had never stopped exploring the potential of Rock music. Their style is bold and fierce. Despite the variety of new forms of music being introduced, their music has remained timeless. As long as you hear their songs, you just can’t help making your spirits rise and your head bop.

In 2018, the film, Bohemian Rhapsody, was released. It is a biopic based on the history of the band, and its lead singer, Freddie Mercury. It tells the story about how the band was formed and how they became famous. 

Today let’s look at some lines from this movie:

Fortune favors the bold

Being human is a condition which requires an anesthetic.

We’re family. We believe in each other. That’s everything.

Tell you what it is, Mr. Reid. Now we’re four misfits who don’t belong together, we’re playing for other misfits. They’re the outcasts right at the back of the room. We’re pretty sure they don’t belong either. We belong to them.

I love the way you move on stage. The whole room belongs to you. Don’t you see what you could be?

Good thoughts, good words, good deeds. You can’t get anywhere by pretending to be someone you’re not!

You know when you know you’ve gone rotten, really rotten? Fruit flies. Dirty little fruit flies, coming to feast on what’s left. Well there isn’t much left for you to feast on anymore. So fly off. Do what you like with your photographs and your stories. But promise me one thing, is that I never see your face again.

It’s an experience. Love, tragedy, joy, it’s something that people will feel belongs to them.

I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes 
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through
We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

Time to learn some sentence structures:

This kind of form such as “being human”, is called gerund. It expresses a kind of state. The gerund looks exactly the same as a present participle (v. -ing), but it is useful to understand the difference between the two. The gerund always has the same function as a noun (although it looks like a verb).

It’s a expression frequently used in English.  For example:

Being brave is important for a hero.

Being patient and kind is a required quality for a teacher.
