Hey you!

Welcome to another episode of Walk ‘n’ Talk Level Up, our all-English podcast series! No diálogo de hoje, vamos acompanhar um par de amigos comentando sobre uma outra amiga que se deu muito bem e está cheia da grana.

Não se esqueça de falar em voz alta, junto com a teacher Becs, para praticar bem a sua pronúncia. E aproveite o material extra que preparamos para você aqui abaixo!

Nos vemos na próxima semana! Have an awesome week!

Vocabulary Expansion

In this episode of Walk 'n' Talk Level Up, you got to practice your pronunciation and learn new structures. Now you can continue your study session here, by reading the whole dialogue and checking out the written explanations with loads of examples. Don’t forget to repeat all the sentences out loud!

Dialogue:

Sally: You’ll never guess who bought an island in Hawaii!
Albert: What? C’mon, spill the tea!
Sally: Remember Carol? She went to high school with us.
Albert: That can’t be! The last I heard of her, she told me she was having trouble paying the mortgage. 
Sally: I know! But by a stroke of luck, she got filthy rich.
Albert: No way! How’s that?
Sally: She won the lottery! Man, I wouldn’t even know what to do first if I were in her shoes.  

New expressions and Vocabulary!

  • You’ll never guess

Our dialogue started with Sally bringing Albert some interesting news! When something is interesting or unexpected it’s common to present the news with this expression, and you can continue the sentence with a question word referring to the information you think is surprising.

You’ll never guess where I saw your mom.
You’ll never guess who was at the meeting today.
You guys will never guess what the principal announced yesterday! 

When you actually want the person to try to “guess” (adivinhar), you can make short imperative sentences. You can answer this kind of sentence with another question or with an expression of surprise, if you think of a surprising possibility.

  • Guess who I saw today!
  • Was it Jack?

  • Guess where Lily went today.
  • Where?

  • Guess what I bought for you!
  • No way! A chocolate bar?

  • To have trouble

To talk about something that is difficult for you or someone else to do, there are a couple of words that are most commonly used! Note that after “have trouble” we always use a verb with ING:

Carol is having trouble paying the electric bills.
Did you
have trouble reaching reception?

Check out these similar ways to express that same message:

We are having difficulties with the new operating system.
They
had some issues with their landlord last month.

  • In one’s shoes

Even though this seems strange when translated literally, this expression has the same meaning as “in one’s place”: it just means to imagine being in somebody else’s position. Let’s see some examples to understand better:

If I were in your shoes I would be very confused.
You wouldn’t survive a day
in my shoes.
What would you do
in my place?
I wouldn’t know what to do
in your place.

  • Filthy rich

Of course, to say that someone is very rich you can choose among many terms and expressions! Let’s check out some of the most common:

Filthy rich
Well-off
Made of money
Deep-pocketed
Upper crust
Well situated
On the up and up
In the black
Lousy rich
Stinking rich
Rolling in money
Upscale

Listen to this episode as many times as you wish, read along, and follow it up with this extra content. That way, you'll be able to memorize these new structures! You’ll also be able to use them in conversations in the future. And remember, the more daily contact you have with the English language, the better you’ll get at it. So make sure you’re here for our next episode!
