232 - Online Shopping
Black Friday will look a little differently this year as we are still in a worldwide pandemic. What are our predictions of this shopping day, which usually has people sleeping outside stores? What is online shopping? And do we, your hosts, enjoy it? Listen to this week’s episode and find out all the answers your waiting for! Our language focus talks about common expressions while highlighting a British and American English difference.
231 - Society
Whether we like or not we all live in a society of some kind - it may just be a group of friends or something as big as your country, but (almost!) everyone lives together in an organised community. What are the benefits of living this way? Are there also disadvantages? Join your 2 hosts as they discuss these topics and improve your English listening, vocab and so much more at the same time!
230 - Kitchens
Are you comfortable in the kitchen? Do you spend a lot of time there or as little as possible? Did you grow up helping out with meals and chores? Find out what your hosts think about the kitchen and whether or not we feel at home in them. We’ll even talk about our favorite meals. Expand your vocabulary from this episode in our language focus.
229 - Hair
Hairlo everyone (ha ha!)
This week we’re talking about the stuff that grows on the top of your head - hair! How do you have yours? Long, short, curly, straight, permed, dyed? And as an English language learner, do you know the difference between bangs and a fringe? Join your 2 hosts as they chat about everything related to hairdos. And keep listening because after the conversation awe explore some of the key vocabulary from this week’s episode.
228 - Classic Horror
Are you feeling scared yet with Halloween, right around the corner? What do you think of when you think of “classic horror movies” Are they dark and spooky? Are there witches or vampires? Find out about some of the classics, from your hosts point of view and then learn about some helpful vocabulary you can use in any situation of your English life. We even used one of them in this episode description.
Listen, if you dare!
227 - Preferences II
Be ready to get zany (crazy) as we talk about preferences on today's episode. Instead of choosing random topics from off the top of our heads, we got a little help from some silly cards that Jennifer owns. And the cards are silly indeed! Listen as your hosts give their preferences on some really weird situations, and hear why we'd choose what we did. Listen to our vocabulary language focus to review a helpful expression and phrasal verb.
