This English learning podcast is about shopping for someone and buying them a gift.
A: What are you getting dad for his birthday?
B: I don’t know yet. He’s really hard to shop for. He seems to already have everything he wants.
A: How about we get him a joint gift. I saw these really cool noise cancellation headphones that I think he’ll like for the airplane or to use when mom is cleaning the house.
B: A joint gift is a good idea, but isn’t that noise cancellation thing a gimmick?
A: No. I tried them on in the store and they really work. I checked into it though and I saw that they had the same ones for much cheaper on amazon. If we order them now they will arrive before dad’s birthday.
B: Are they the ear buds or the big ones that cover the whole ear?
A: I think we should get the big ones. Dad’s weird about putting things in his ears.
B: Sounds good. How about you put them on your credit card and I’ll give you the cash for them.
