    Intro


    Mitch:
    [0:22] Okay, welcome to episode 41 of the Easy English Podcast.


    Isi:
    [0:28] Do you have a sweet in your mouth during a podcast? That's not cool.


    Mitch:
    [0:33] No.


    Isi:
    [0:35] People will hate this. Okay, he puts it out. Don't worry. Now it's on your laptop.


    Mitch:
    [0:42] Save it for later. We're back in Britain.


    Isi:
    [0:46] We're back in Britain.


    Mitch:
    [0:47] How are you all? yet again more grinding of building materials .


    Isi:
    [0:53] Yeah, do you remember when we told you our building work is coming to an end our building work started again.


    Mitch:
    [0:58] They've started again from day one they do it all over again.


    Isi:
    [1:03] Wait, we already said they started again didn't we and now they started again again.


    Mitch:
    [1:06] Again again they're working backwards. They're gonna take it back to how it was and then do it all over again but a bit better.


    Isi:
    [1:12] There's drilling in the background now yay.


    Mitch:
    [1:14] Um today we have three topics for you. Let's do topic number one.


    Isi:
    [1:21] Topic number one.


    Mitch:
    [1:22] Easy English Updates.


    Unknown:
    [1:28] Easy English Updates.


    Mitch:
    [1:30] When was it? Last week? Yeah, last week.


    Isi:
    [1:34] Yeah, it was, it's only a week ago. Well, a week and two days. (We had) our first ever Easy English meetup together with Easy German so we did an Easy German and Easy English meetup to meet viewers listeners maybe some some people of you that are listening now. (Oh yeah, can you write if you were there.) Yeah write us a message. (It was in Münster so it was more German-based,obviously.) In my home-town and we met for like three hours i think it's in the end it was much longer than three hours.


    Mitch:
    [2:12] cool venue right called Gasolin. An old gas station or petrol station sorry.


    Isi:
    [2:17] A bar that I've known for many many years in my life and we met there it was much fun um... (I was nervous.) yeah?


    Mitch:
    [2:28] Yeah, I didn't want to tell you because I don't want to give empathy nerves. I had to drink maybe two beers to feel a bit more like I drank Radler which is like a shandy in English. (Yeah.) Which is a mixture of lemonade and beer and the sugar just made me feel more nervous.


    Isi:
    [2:46] Oh yeah it's a bit nerve-wracking isn't it because we are just always behind our microphones behind the camera or in front of the camera but on our own doing our stuff.


    Mitch:
    [2:57] Yeah, we're kind of faceless in a way.


    Isi:
    [2:59] Yeah, and it's really nice to get direct feedback. But we are lacking this really in like our...job. I know you you give sometimes comments on YouTube or here on the podcast or as a member on Patreon. But it would be great to actually have more of a feedback even so actually now I can directly tell you it would be great if you on your podcast app where you're listening um give us a feedback um on most apps you can give rating or even a comment with it um like on Spotify for example you can give a rating and you can also ask questions or give us comments on specific episodes and we would be really really happy to get that because you know when you're doing something and you don't really know what people think of it so it does help us a lot if you give us a feedback so if you could now now now quickly quickly it takes a second go on I mean you are on the app now but see on the app that you can um wha

    Intro


    Mitch:
    [0:22] Are you ready?


    Isi:
    [0:26] I am ready. I have the feeling we only record tired podcasts now. We change from having a cocktail sometimes with our podcast to coffee and tiredness.


    Mitch:
    [0:40] Have we begun? (Yes.) Okay.


    Isi:
    [0:42] But I'm super motivated because of a great topic.


    Mitch:
    [0:45] Oh yeah?


    Isi:
    [0:46] Yes.


    Mitch:
    [0:46] Okay, firstly, welcome to the Easy English Podcast.


    Isi:
    [0:48] Welcome.


    Mitch:
    [0:50] We hope you're all well and not as sleepy as us but also as motivated as us.


    Isi:
    [0:56] I'm not even sleepy the coffee does help. Okay...


    Mitch:
    [1:00] I think it's because the shutter that sort of works for the... on the window that for the room that we're in is broken. I broke that and we seem to be breaking a lot of things at the moment where... you said it last night we're a bad omen, at the moment.


    Isi:
    [1:16] I think so.


    Mitch:
    [1:17] We also... don't tell your parents broke their fridge


    Isi:
    [1:21] We didn't. (Someone did.) Well I think the fridge was broken we were just being the unlucky ones to be there when the last hit.


    Mitch:
    [1:33] Here's a good idiom for you.


    Isi:
    [1:34] Yes?


    Mitch:
    [1:35] We have been the straw that broke the camel's back.


    Isi:
    [1:39] I know that one, I don't have to use my buzzer. I know it.


    Mitch:
    [1:45] Okay good, what is it that you want to bring to the Easy English Podcast today? Is it a new section?


    Isi:
    [1:50] Yes it is. So I know we discuss culture a lot of times and we have the Culture Club where we recommend British things or British series or anything cultural but last time we spoke about Brits on Germans and obviously we want to talk here about um Brits and the British way of life and I thought we could have a new section which is called Very British where we talk about anything that is actually considered to be British which could be like characteristics or like how people behave cultural behaviour but also the way that Brits or people in Britain do things.


    Mitch:
    [2:41] Okay, and what's the name of this called? Very British?


    Isi:
    [2:43] Very British.


    Mitch:
    [2:44] Okay, we... I make a...


    Isi:
    [2:45] We can also call it So Very British.


    Mitch:
    [2:50] Okay, I make a section which is coming in now!
