Baby Shower – What is it?

by Tom on April 14, 2015

in News

Hi everyone,

I have some great news for you at the end of this post! But first…

Does anyone know what a “Baby Shower” is?

Baby Shower - English Expression Meaning Definition

No, this does’t mean that babies fall from the sky!

It’s a kind of party where people celebrate a coming baby (or one that has just arrived) by giving presents to the mother.

Talking about babies, it’s time for the good news…! Last week my partner & I had a baby daughter, Sophia! We’re obviously very happy, and to celebrate this, Katie & I have decided to have a “baby shower sale” on Zapp! English.

So, for the next 7 days only, you can get 35% off any of the real English packs on our website with the coupon code: babyshower

All you have to do is copy the code above, visit our shop by clicking the link below, and when you get to the final product registration page, enter the coupon code babyshower to get your discount.
