089 – Cooped Up | ESL Podcast

English Learning podcast about staying inside too much and feeling cooped up. Learn English conversation skills

English Learning Dialog

A:  Where are you going?

B:  Not sure yet.  I just need to get out of the house.  I’ve been cooped up all week and it’s driving me insane.

A:  Do you mind waiting a few minutes?

B:  For what?

A:  I wouldn’t mind joining you.  I’ve just gotta hop in the shower for 5 minutes and I’ll be ready to go.

B:  Knowing you it’ll take a half hour.  Hurry up.

A:  Ok.


I just need to get out of the house: This is a common sentence to say when you feel like you have been spending too much time at home.
“I’ve been sick in bed all week and I what I want more than anything is to just get out of the house”.

Cooped up: This phrase means you feel trapped or imprisoned.  You feel like an animal who has been locked in a small cage.
I really need a vacation.  I’ve spent most of the past 6 months cooped up in the office.

Driving me insane: This phrase means, “making me go crazy”.
I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with my computer all morning and I still have no idea.  It’s driving me insane.

Wouldn’t mind: In the context of this dialogue, “wouldn’t mind” actually means, “want to”.  Since the person wasn’t invited, saying wouldn’t mind feels a little more polite.

Hop in the shower: When we are talking about taking a quick shower, we often use the verb “hop in”.  It makes it sound like the whole process will be fast.  “I’ll be ready to leave in 15 minutes.  I’ve just gotta finish this email and then hop in the shower”.

Knowing you: This phrase is used when you think the other person will behave in a certain way based on your experience with that person.
“He said he will be here at 8:00.  I know that’s what he said, but knowing him, he won’t be here until at least 9:30″.
