“Welcome to the Speak English Now podcast. With your host Georgiana. The podcast that will help you to speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks.”
Hi everyone! I’m your English teacher Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.
In this episode, I’ll talk about the Christmas holidays. And after that, you’ll practice your English speaking with an exciting mini-story about a man dressed in red.
Alright! Let’s start!
Ah! It’s Christmas at last! I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year. I start to think about what presents to give to my family and friends. Normally I make a list, so I don’t forget anyone. Can you imagine forgetting someone? That would be terrible! That’s why I start very early to plan what presents to give to everyone.
Finding the right gift for someone can be difficult, so what I usually do is search online for gift ideas. And buying online helps me avoid holiday crowds.
To really feel the Christmas spirit, I like preparing a pot with a delightful scent using orange, cinnamon, apple cider, and clove. I let everything boil throughout the day so that the fragrance spreads throughout the house.
At this time of year, I also love to listen to Christmas songs.
I can recommend some popular Christmas songs:
- “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey.
- “Last Christmas” by Wham!
- “Let It, Snow! Let It, Snow! Let It Snow!” by Frank Sinatra.
“Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms.
- and something from Michael Bublé’s Christmas album.
Plus, I enjoy placing Christmas lights and decorations. I sometimes use social media to find unique decorations.
Did you know that some Americans use popcorn threaded on a string to help decorate their Christmas Tree?
Or that in New England, you can find some shops called “Christmas Shops.” There they sell Christmas decorations and toys throughout the entire year!
