Daily Easy English Expression Podcast

Today’s expression and dialog: 

hand-me-downs

You’re throwing away all those clothes?

Yeah. They’re hand-me-downs.

Let me see them. I’ll take some of these!

Help yourself. They were my uncle’s.

 

As most of you know, I am an American football fan. I love the Green Bay Packers! And when I was young, one of my FAVORITE shirts was a Green Bay Packers shirt! In fact, if you visit my website and click on ABOUT COACH SHANE you will see a picture there of me in that shirt! Many years ago!! Anyway, that shirt was a "used" shirt. It used to belong to my Uncle John...or was it Uncle Jim? I'm not sure! However, when we talk about USED CLOTHES in English--especially used by a different family member, we do NOT say USED CLOTHES! We have another expression and that's what you will learn today!
Have a SUPER weekend,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog:

air quotes

Shane is SO funny~

What? No he’s not.

You weren’t watching. I was doing this ~~~

Oh! Air quotes!

Humor around the world is different in each culture. In the US, we love "self-deprecating humor"--jokes that make ourselves look silly or fat or lazy or dumb! Strange, huh? British people LOVE sarcasm. Some people love slapstick humor--visual humor with lots of physical fun!
Well, in the US, we also like sarcasm and sarcasm is one of the toughest types of humor for ESL students. We say something like "Nice haircut" but the meaning is "What a terrible haircut!" How do you know? Intonation...OR, in the US, we often use TODAY'S EXPRESSION. Learn it and learn to laugh at more American humor!
Have a super Thursday,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog: 

a longshot (also “long shot” AND long-shot)

Do you think Shane will become a Hollywood movie star?

It’s a longshot!

Really? I think he’s SO talented.

Yeah, but he’s bald! And old!

 

Did you ever play basketball? If you have, which is easier:
A. Making a basket from 2 meters
B. Making a basket from 4 meters
C. Making a basket from 10 meters
Well, the answer is A! The closer we are to the "hoop", the easier it is to throw the ball into the "hoop". The farther we are, or the LONGER we are, the more difficult it is to "make the shot" or "to put the ball into the hoop".
I just gave you the BACKGROUND to Today's Expression! In the podcast, I tell you Today's Expression is "one word", which it is, but it looks like most people spell it as two words--you can use a hyphen, too! Too many choices^^
Have a SUPER day,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog:

discipline (noun and verb)  

Ooh! Cake! Maybe I’ll get a small piece.

Aren’t you on a diet? You need some discipline.

Who’s gonna discipline me?

Me!! Ha! I brought a mirror! Look at yourself!

 

I LOVE chocolate. But, I can control myself. I LOVE beer, but I almost always have just one can a day! To control yourself is NOT easy. It requires "TODAY'S EXPRESSION". But to control others, we also use "TODAY'S EXPRESSION". In my opinion, many children and students do NOT get enough of this magic word. When I was young I received LOTS of it! I was "TODAY'S EXPRESSION"ed every day!
Today's expression can be used as a NOUN and a VERB. It's a very USEFUL word that I want you to practice using. But it will require some "TODAY'S EXPRESSION"!!!
Have a great day,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog:

to cry: sob, wail, whimper

When I saw that puppy whimpering I wanted to cry.

I was completely sobbing. It was so sad.

I’m glad mom didn’t see it.

I know! She would have been wailing!!

 

How was your weekend? I saw that many of you left messages on Facebook:
The dentist: OH NO!!
Trekking: YES!
Cycling: WONDERFUL!
Rose, did you survive? Did you cry?!
Nikolay, how far did you cycle? What kind of bike--road or mountain?
Jorge, how far did you and your friends trek? Did you camp?
BUT...now it is time to go BACK to WORK and SCHOOL! HA-HA-HA-HA! Don't cry^^ Be happy! In today's expression I will teach you THREE different "levels" of crying...and I want to know when the last time you cried was! Me? Listen to the podcast and you'll find out!!
Have a super week,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog: 

to follow along

The first thing you need to do is call the US embassy.

That’s the first thing?        

Weren’t you following along? That’s what the travel office said.

Oh, I guess just looking at the pictures on the wall~

 

The weekend is here...again!! I hope that you have some GREAT plans. Maybe you will go somewhere? Maybe you'll just stay at home? For me...My "rest" day is Sunday! So I will sleep in and then, probably, do some hiking and some cooking. What should I make? When I was at my mom's house on Monday I heard a chef on TV talking about some food with beef and tomatoes and lemons...but I wasn't "TODAY'S EXPRESSION".
Today's expression is VERY IMPORTANT if you EVER want to LEARN ANYTHING!
Have a great weekend,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog: 

peachy

Hi! Long time no see!

Yeah, good to see you! How’s everything?

Everything’s peachy! Yourself?

Couldn’t be better!

How is your Friday going? Great? Fine? Wonderful? Those are good words to describe your day...but should we ALWAYS use the SAME words? No--that's too boring! Today, let's use a different word! I like today's word and I think you will, too!

Have NOT ONLY a great Friday, BUT ALSO a great weekend!! (but use a different word than "great"!)

Today’s expression and dialog: 

~ gives me a complex

Let’s go to John’s barbecue this Sunday.

No. He gives me a complex.

What? Why?

His life is so perfect. My life is so blah~~

 

How has your week been? Has anyone made you feel uncomfortable? Inadequate? Not good enough? Small? Stupid? Weak?
If yes, WHO? Give me their name--I'll take care of them~~
While I make them understand what a great person you are, I want you to master Today's Expression! It's a VERY common word that we can all use from time to time^^
Have a super day,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog: 

blah~

You look a little…

Blah?      

Yeah!

I’m am blah~ Nothing’s going right in my life~~

 

YOU have the power to CHOOSE how you feel. You have the ability. So, when you are NOT feeling "great", find a way to feel better! Today's expression is a word that we use when we do NOT feel great! It's a word we all need to know...and a word we all need to defeat!!

Have a HAPPY day,
Coach Shane

Today’s expression and dialog: 

fingers crossed

John failed his exam.

Ha! I’m glad. He never studied.

But you told him you would keep your fingers crossed for him.

Yeah, but I crossed my fingers on my other hand when I said it!

 

Right now I'm installing Windows 10 on one of my computers. Wish me luck. I have heard that Windows 10 is nice, BUT it totally allows Microsoft to follow everything I do...which means "no privacy". Well, I don't do anything illegal, so that doesn't bother me, BUT...I still don't like the idea that "someone" could see my personal email or see how much I spent at the grocery store (I keep my list online!) or see the unbelievable amount of pictures of my two kitties that I have on my computer! Anyway, I'm sure I won't have any problems...right?
In this case--you need to use TODAY'S EXPRESSION!
Have a super week and tell me if you have upgraded to Windows 10!
