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.
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.

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!
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.
