Learn Key English Phrases and Vocabulary for Christmas Parties
Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 27: Teaching Tuesday.
Gabby: Welcome to the All Ears English Podcast, where you’ll finally get real, native English conversation. Now here are your hosts, Lindsay McMahon, the ‘English Adventurer’ and Gabby Wallace, the ‘Language Angel,’ coming to you from Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
In this episode, learn why Lindsay doesn’t wear high heels.
Gabby: Hey Lindsay. How’s it going?
Lindsay: Hey Gabby. What’s, what’s going on?
Gabby: Not much. So (um) yesterday we talked a little bit about being away from home in the US, in America, for Christmas and (um) some fun things you can do to really enjoy the holiday in a new way. So we’d like to discuss a few words that came up in that conversation. (Um) what was one word?
Lindsay: So one of the words was ‘fancy.’ So we talked about a ‘fancy’ party, (you know) a cocktail party being a ‘fancy’ party.
Gabby: Yeah. ‘Fancy’ is really common, but it, it’s, it’s (like)… What is it? It’s (um)….
Lindsay: It’s nice.
Lindsay: If you’re talking about fashion, a ‘fancy’ way of dressing is just nicer… Gabby: Ornate
Lindsay: …than casual.
Gabby: And (I mean) the word is commonly used (um), but yeah, it’s just like a special (um), high class…
Gabby: Expensive. Yeah. Cool.
Lindsay: Fancy okay. And the other one was ‘watch out.’ Gabby: Ooh, ‘watch out’!
Lindsay: Watch out! Be careful!
Gabby: But you can use ‘watch out’ in another way, (like) ‘watch out’ for mistletoe. I think that’s the way we used it or (you know) maybe ‘watch out’ for Christmas sales.
Lindsay: Right. Watch out. Keep an eye out.
Lindsay: Be aware of.
Gabby: Exactly. Look for… Cool. What’s another one?
Lindsay: Well we said – we used the word ‘gathering.’ Gabby: Yeah, ‘gathering’ can be another word for a party.
Lindsay: Yep. So when we ‘gather’ we come together. We’re at a ‘gathering.’ Gabby: Do you think ‘gathering’ has the meaning that it’s (like) a little bit (um) more easygoing. (Like) you’re probably not gonna be (like) listening to club music and dancing all over the place.
Lindsay: It probably wouldn’t be a club scene, a gathering.
Gabby: No. (Like) I’m having a little gathering at my house.
Lindsay: Yeah. It sounds a little bit intimate.
Lindsay: Yeah. I would say that rather than a huge party… Gabby: Right.
Lindsay: …a small gathering.
Gabby: Right. Okay. Cool. And then our last word to share with you is ‘heels.’ So this is just short for high heels, right?
Gabby: Just (um) the shoes that women wear, make us look taller.
Lindsay: Right. Personally, I don’t wear heels because I hate the way they feel on my feet.
Lindsay: They’re so painful.
Gabby: Well, but for fancy events…
Gabby: …sometimes it’s nice.
Lindsay: You (like) have to wear heels.
Gabby: Totally. Cool. So let’s just say the words together. So repeat after us. (Um) Lindsay what’s the first word?
Lindsay: Okay, so the first one is ‘fancy.’ Gabby: ‘Watch out for.’
Lindsay: Got it.
Gabby: Great. So I’ll see you tomorrow for Wisdom Wednesday?
Lindsay: See you on Wednesday!
Gabby: Okay. So (you know), I’ve actually talked with 30 different students over the past few months and a lot of the students that I’ve spoken with have said that they’re at an intermediate level or high intermediate level and they just can’t seem to find a way to move beyond that intermediate level, to move to the advanced level. And this is what we wanna (want to) help you guys with, but if you really wanna (want to) move to that level, it’s gonna (going to) require a little bit more of a commitment, okay? So go for the premium transcripts that we have available for you and in order to get those, you need to go to www.allearsenglish.com/conversations. So check it out.
