    Catch Word #229 – I’m racking my brain

    There are so many ways to tell people that you’re thinking. In this episode, Andrew and Kassy cover two expressions that you can use to tell someone just how hard you’re thinking about something.









    Fun facts
    Naps can improve your memory. German researchers at the University of Lübeck asked study participants to do some tasks; half of them had to stay awake while the other half got to nap. The group that napped was able to remember more than the group that stayed awake.


    Expressions included in the study guide



    * To rack your brain
    * To chew on [something]
    * To throw out ideas
    * Draining
    * To talk [something] over
    * To gloss over [something]

    Suzanne’s Quick Tips Episode #6: Breath support

    Suzanne’s Quick Tips Episode #6: Breath support

    Episode description
    Today’s topic is breath support. Sometimes when we’re in an important meeting, an interview or maybe a class presentation, we might find that we’re kind of nervous, right? Our nerves go up, our body temperature goes up. Our breathing starts getting shallow. And we tend not to have a lot of what we call vocal presence and breath support.


    Quick tip takeaways



    * Breath support is using our lungs and diaphragm efficiently so that we don’t damage our vocal folds and so that we have vocal presence.
    * Vocal presence is having a loud enough, yet supported enough voice that fills the room and feels relaxed and at ease when you are speaking.
    * Remember to try stretching your back body when filling up your lungs so that you use the full capacity of your inhalation.

    Simplified Speech #092 – Garbage and recycling

    Taking care of the environment through recycling and proper garbage disposal is such an important aspect of our lives. However, everyone goes about it differently. In this Simplified Speech episode, Andrew and Kassy talk about the differences between how Canada and the United States deal with waste management.









    Fun facts
    Recycling isn’t easy for every country to do. It’s often very expensive and citizens need the discipline to do it. So here’s a big congratulations to Germany for being the world’s leading recycling country. They recycle 56.1% of all the waste they produce!

    Catch Word #228 – It’s really eating me up!

    Catch Word #228 – It’s really eating me up!

    In today’s Catch Word episode, Andrew and Jeremy introduce two phrases that can be used when expressing negative emotions. Although we wish life could always be full of happy times, that definitely isn’t the reality. Sometimes we have some pretty negative emotions bottled up inside; Andrew and Jeremy are here to help you express those emotions in English.









    Fun facts
    Bad feelings are actually good for you! Negative emotions help us to reflect on and evaluate our experiences. Someone who only experiences positive emotions could become complacent in life and ignores key issues in an effort to maintain their constant state of false positivity.


    Expressions included in the study guide



    * To eat [someone] up
    * High-stakes
    * To go with one’s gut
    * To tear [someone] up
    * To spill the beans
    * Tearjerker

    Jeremy’s English Tips Episode #19: Three ways to share your opinion in English

    Jeremy’s English Tips Episode #19: Three ways to share your opinion in English

    Episode description
    In this episode we are going to talk about three super useful ways to share your opinion in English. Now in English, it is very common for people to share their opinions and to discuss differing opinions in a rather casual setting.


    Key points covered in this lesson:



    * The easiest way to share your opinion is with I think. However, this has another meaning too. It can mean that you are unsure or do not know if something is 100% true or not.
    * Use to me to share your opinion, but also show that you respect other people’s opinions. It can be used in formal or informal situations.
    * Use I feel like to gently share your opinion but also allow the other people to share their opinions without getting into an argument.
    * When adults learn a new language, they usually try to learn words without context.
    * Use as far as I’m concerned to strongly assert your opinion. If you are certain that you are right but the other person thinks differently, you can use this one.
