What Are you Doing for New Year’s Eve? How to Ask Like a Native English Speaker

Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 31: Teaching Tuesday.

[Instrumental]

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.

Lindsay: In today’s episode, you’ll learn how to ask a native English speaker what they’re doing for New Year’s Eve.

[Instrumental] Gabby: Hey Lindsay.

Lindsay: Hey- Gabby!

Gabby: So today we’re gonna (going to) talk about some of those phrases that we used in our conversation yesterday talking about New Year’s Eve in New York City.

Yep (yes). We had some great phrases that you guys can use in your everyday life.

Lindsay:

Gabby: Yeah. What was one of those?

Lindsay:

So one of them was ‘to ring…’ ‘to ring in the New Year.’ So this means to, you know, welcome the New Year in.

Gabby:

Yeah. Ring-a-ling-a-ling. Just like a bell right?

Lindsay:

Just like that. Ding, ding, ding.

Gabby:

Yeah. Yeah. So ‘ring in the New Year.’ This is really a specific phrase that we kind of only use for New Year’s.

Lindsay:

Yes. Definitely. Only New Year’s. So we can say “How are you going ‘to ring in the New Year’ this year?” Gabby:

Right. Very cool. Very idiomatic. The next phrase that I think I used (um), is (uh) ‘iconic.’ Like an iconic experience is the way I used it. So ‘iconic’ is (like) traditional… Lindsay:

Typical…

Gabby:

…typical… Yeah. (Um).

Lindsay:

Something you think of when you think of that thing.

Gabby:

Exactly. So (um) an ‘iconic’ image. For example, an ‘iconic’ image of New York City would be what like the Empire State Building or… Lindsay:

(Mm-hm). For sure (um), the Brooklyn Bridge.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

Statue of Liberty.

Gabby:

Oh yeah.

Lindsay:

Lots of things.

Gabby:

Absolutely. Absolutely

Lindsay:

Central Park.

Gabby:

Yeah. Yeah, cool. So an ‘iconic’ experience (uh) similarly is like a (uh) very typical experience.

Lindsay:

Yeah. Something you would do on average in New York, for example, on New Year’s. Good.

Gabby:

Great. (Um) what’s the next one?

Lindsay:

The next one is ‘must-see.’ So we use this as an adjective, right, to describe something, right?

Gabby:

Right. Like (um) Times Square is a ‘must-see’ place in New York City if you’re a visitor.

Lindsay:

Right.

Gabby:

Yeah, so ‘must-see’ events, location, place, ‘must-see’… Lindsay:

Movie. Must-see movie.

Gabby:

Must- see play.

Lindsay:

Must-see museum maybe.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

(Um). Yeah, something that you – it’s so good, it’s so famous, it’s so well known, that you have to see it.

Gabby:

(Mm-hm).

Lindsay:

Cool.

Gabby:

And (um) the last one is a phrasal verb ‘to deal with.’ So ‘to deal with’ something (um) – well how would we explain this – ‘to deal with’ something is – I mean to, to take care of… Lindsay:

Yeah. Usually this sort of has a negative connotation to it, I think.

Gabby:

Yeah. Totally.

(Um) it’s when something – you’re struggling with a problem.

Gabby:

I don’t wanna (want to) deal with that.

Lindsay:

Oh, I just can’t – I don’t know how ‘to deal with’ that person.

Gabby:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Lindsay:

Or you don’t want to deal with the crowds in Times Square in New York City.

Gabby:

Exactly.

Lindsay:

So hang out somewhere else in New York.

Gabby:

Exactly, no, you’re so right. I can’t think of a way I would use this in a positive situation.

Lindsay:

Yeah. Yeah. It really is pretty negative.

Both:

Yeah. Yeah.

Gabby:

I can ‘deal with it’ though. I think, I think you can use it like you’re going to get by. I can ‘deal with it.’ Lindsay:

Yeah.

Gabby:

Oh I have a lot of work, but I can ‘deal with it.’ Lindsay:

Exactly.

Gabby:

Yeah. Cool. So (um) let’s just repeat the four phrases that we shared. So start with the first one; it’s ‘ring in’ so let’s say the whole phrase, ‘to ring in the New Year,’ okay and then ‘iconic.’ Good what were the other two?

Lindsay:

Lindsay:

‘Must- see’ and ‘deal with.’ Gabby:

Awesome.

Lindsay:

Yeah!

Gabby:

All right. Thanks Lindsay.

Lindsay:

See you guys.

Gabby: Yeah we’ll see you guys tomorrow, Wisdom Wednesday.

Gabby: I’ve been getting some questions from students, from listeners, from you guys (um) about what we’re saying. Sometimes (um) maybe you’re listening and you’re not quite sure if you caught what we said, or you heard us but you weren’t sure about the word that we actually said, so what we’ve done is we’ve created transcripts where you can read every single word that we said in print. So it’s super easy to understand everything and this is a great way to push your English up a level and to really feel confident with your understanding and to be able to use those words in writing and speaking in your own conversations. So in order to get those premium transcripts, just come to
