4 Phrases to Find Love on Valentine’s Day

Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 55: Teaching Tuesday, “4 English Phrases to Find Love on Valentine’s Day.” [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.

In this episode, you’ll learn four phrases to find love on Valentine’s Day and you’ll learn specifically how to play hard to get.

[Instrumental]

Lindsay: All right Gabby, how (are) you feeling today?

Gabby: Hey. I’m feeling good Lindsay. How are you?

Lindsay: I’m great and I’m really excited because yesterday we had Jason, the Fluency MC guy on and… Gabby: Yeah. That was so much fun. He did an awesome rap for us.

Oh, it was so cool. I, I loved it.

We were dancing over here enjoying it. (It’s) so much fun to learn English through music.

Lindsay:

It’s awesome. So, so in, in Jason’s (uh) rap or Hip-Hop song, he actually brought out a few phrases that we wanted to share with you guys today.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

So our first phrase “catch a movie.” (Mm), catch a movie. Does that mean actually like I catch it in my hand? Like what…? What is that?

Gabby:

Here’s a DVD. Quick. Catch!

Lindsay:

Got it.

Gabby:

No, it means to go see a movie.

Lindsay:

I see.

Gabby:

Like “Hey, Lindsay, you want to ‘catch a movie’ with me?” Lindsay:

‘Catch a movie.’ Okay.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

So that’s a really casual way to invite someone out for the movie.

Lindsay:

Gabby:

© All Ears English www.allearsenglish.com Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

So (if you’re) trying to ask someone out on a date, you can say “Let’s ‘catch a movie’.” Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

“You wanna (want to) ‘catch a movie’?” Gabby:

Or ‘catch a game’ maybe?

Lindsay:

You could say that. ‘Catch a game.’ Gabby:

I think those are the only two ways you’d use ‘catch’ in that way.

Lindsay:

Gabby:

© All Ears English www.allearsenglish.com Yeah, I would say.

Yeah.

Lindsay:

Those are the only two ways.

Gabby:

Cool. (Um) what’s the next phrase we have (uh) from, from the song?

Lindsay:

Yeah, the next one that I heard was ‘to be a perfect match.’ Gabby:

Ooh, a ‘perfect match.’ That’s a really cute phrase. It means, (you know), you’re just meant for someone, you get along really well, and you have a great relationship, a romantic relationship.

Lindsay:

Maybe you have complementing personalities, for example.

Gabby:

Yeah.

Lindsay:

And you just, you match really well with the person just like the right foot matches the left foot.

Gabby:

Cool. The next phrase is ‘hard to get.’ Lindsay:

Oh, ‘play hard to get.’ Tricky.

Gabby:

Yeah, there is (are) some rules about ‘playing hard to get,’ (like) if you meet someone, don’t call them for at least three or four days.

Lindsay:

Oh my gosh. Do you actually believe in those rules?

Gabby:

(Um) naw (no), naw (no).

Lindsay:

Not too much.

Gabby:

Naw (no), but some people believe that you should play ‘hard to get,’ don’t return texts… indsay:

Gabby:

© All Ears English www.allearsenglish.com Lindsay:

Especially women.

Gabby:

Yeah, yeah, especially women. Don’t return phone calls, act like you’re not interested, act like you’re always busy. I just say don’t act, that’s my advice. If you’re busy, you’re busy right. If you didn’t see the text right away, that’s fine, but (um), ‘playing hard to get’- it’s a big game.

Yes.

And nobody wins.

Lindsay:

And nobody wins and everyone ends up confused.

Gabby:

Yeah, yeah.

Lindsay:

Was there anything else?

Gabby:

Yeah, there was one more.

Lindsay:

Oh yes, so to be ‘out on the town’ or to ‘go out on the town.’ Gabby:

Yeah. ‘Go out on the town’ is like going on a date and it’s not really specific, it’s kind of general, but it might mean, (like), go out to dinner, to a movie, and then out dancing, or maybe to (like) a play, just basically going out in the city. (Um) it could mean a lot of different things.

Lindsay:

Yeah, exactly. Just to go out.

Gabby:

And you could be doing (like) several different things in the same night.

Lindsay:

(Mm-hm). Yeah.

Gabby:

Just to have a good time.

Lindsay:

Yeah.

Gabby:

Awesome

Lindsay:

All right.

Gabby:

So let’s repeat these phrases before we end here. The first one was ‘catch a movie.’ Lindsay:

And then the next one was ‘perfect match.’ Gabby:

The next one ‘hard to get.’

Lindsay:

And the last one, ‘out on the town.’ [Instrumental]
