127 - Guys and Girls

In this English podcast we talk about relationships and some problems guys and girls have in them.  Listen and learn English for daily life and relationships.

Dialog:

A:  What are you doing later?

B:  My girlfriend is dragging me to the opening of the new Apple store in Shanghai.  Her birthday is in a week and I know she’d love a new laptop.

A:  The stores on the mainland are super expensive.  You can save a lot if you buy one in Hong Kong. 

B:  I’m not looking to save a couple of bucks.  Our relationship is on the rocks and I can feel I need to shell out for a decent birthday gift if I want to save it.  I’ll probably take her on a trip too.

A:  What happened?  I thought you guys were doing really well. 

B:  I’ve been a bit distant lately and she can feel it.  We’ve been going out for 2 years now and it’s gotten a bit stale.  She says it feels like I don’t have both feet in the relationship.  A lot of other guys are after her and I can feel I need to start giving her more attention if we’re going to make it.

126 - Beach Life

We just got back from a trip to Thailand and we wanted to share some great vocabulary and phrases for life on the beach.  We have a lesson here with some terms and phrases that we found were used often on our trip by many native English speakers. Have a listen and let us know what you think!

Dialog:

A:  You feel like going out for dinner later?  My treat.

B:  I appreciate the offer but I think I’ll pass.  I went to town on the buffet last night and feel like a fat hungover cow.

A:  What happened to your diet?

B:  I fell off the wagon last night but I’m gonna get back on track starting today. 

A:  I should do the same actually.  My bod isn’t exactly beach worthy at the moment and our trip is only a month away. 

B:  It’s not easy during the holiday season.  I’ve gotta drop a good 5 pounds of pure lard in the next month.  Let’s hit the gym and just eat something small after.

A:  Good idea.
