012 – Holidays | ESL Podcast

ESL Podcast about holidays and travel

Story

Addison
I just booked my trip to Thailand on an online travel website and printed out my e-ticket.  I had made a decision to go there on a spur of the moment decision because my schedule had recently opened up. I had gotten in a little bit of a rut so decided a little spontaneity in my life couldn’t hurt.  Also, I was growing very weary of the cold weather and thought it would be nice to hit the beach.  I was really excited to be in the water and feel the waves again.  Hopefully my accommodations will be good.  I booked them online as well and have only seen the pictures.  The pictures look good on the website but I’ll be pretty angry if it is some sort of a scam. Oh well I guess I’ll see when I get there.  Sometimes, if you want to be spontaneous you have to role the dice.

Key vocabulary and phrases that are discussed in the podcast:

 

e-ticket – electronic ticket that can be printed

 

spur of the moment – a decision made quickly without having thought about it before

 

schedule opened up – schedule is now clear and you have no commitments

 

rut – a feeling of doing the same thing too often and not having changes in your life.  You often start to feel bored in your life when you are in a rut

 

spontaneity – the idea of someone being able to do things without having to plan for a long time

 

couldn’t hurt – here means that spontaneity should be a good idea.

 

hit the beach – go to the beach

 

scam – to lie or deceive someone for profit or gain

 

rolling the dice – is a kind of gambling game and is an expression used to show that you are taking a risk or a chance.

    Hey guys, thank you so much for these English lessons. This lesson is a little a bit harder, and that\’s good in that it means there are more new words to learn. I hope you keep on your great casting and accept the best wishes from me as one of the students who cannot be vip members.

  8. Chat Says:

    Just want to say THANK YOU guys for best podcasts ever!! I have been listened to your podcast since this Tuesday during work. Hope we won’t get sacked though ;) Your podcasts made my partner and my work lives funnier. We usually work in a lab and do the same things everyday, it’s a predictable job. Boring isn’t it? So, we decided to continue our further study to get out of this boring situation. Problem is we have to take English test as we are not native speakers. Your podcasts help us a lot to improve our English, hope it will help us in the exam too. By the way, we are Thai but now live in Australia. So thanks again for your excellent podcasts. Keep doing!!! :)
