Hey there!

Welcome to another episode of Walk ‘n’ Talk Level Up, our all-English podcast series! No diálogo de hoje, vamos acompanhar uma personagem que está falando com uma amiga sobre seus planos inusitados para o fim de semana.

Não deixe de falar tudo 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 fun!

Vocabulary Expansion

In this episode of Walk 'n' Talk Level Up, you got to practice your pronunciation and learn some new expressions. You can continue your study session here, by reading the dialogue and checking out the written explanations with examples!

Dialogue:

Carol: Hey, girl. What are you up to? 
Bailey:
I was supposed to be reading, but I’m actually just thinking about tomorrow.
Carol: What’s the big deal? Didn’t know you had plans.   
Bailey: Mom and Dad will be traveling for the whole weekend and I’m gonna be alone. 
Carol:
Wow, so what are you gonna do? Throw a party? Binge-watch a tv show? Order lots of junk food?
Bailey: Oh, I wish! I’ve got a project to hand in next Tuesday for the American Literature discipline. I’ll probably enjoy the silence and write on “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”.
Carol: You’re kidding, right?

New expressions and Vocabulary!

- To be up to

Our dialogue started with this expression, which you have surely heard before! “To be up to” has a similar meaning to “aprontar” in Portuguese, but it doesn’t always have the connotation of something secretive or negative, so we could say that “what are you up to?” is a more casual or fun way of asking “what are you doing?”. Take a look at a few more examples:

I don’t know what Sean is up to, but I’m sure it’s going to be good.
What
are you up to? I never see you around here.
What
is Jane up to? We thought she was coming to the party.

- Throw a party

When you are the one who is organizing and hosting a party, you are “throwing a party”! This combination of verb and object can sound strange but it is the most natural one. Let’s take a look at some possible sentences:

Sarah said she wants to throw a pool party next week.
Are we going to
throw a surprise party for Caleb?
I don’t want to
throw another party at my house any time soon.

- Hand in

“To hand something in” means to “submit something” to the institution or professional that requested it. It can refer to anything, including schoolwork or official documents. Check out a couple of examples:

I forgot to hand in my books last Friday.
Tom has to
hand in his passport because the officer asked for it.
When do we have to
hand in our History paper?

- Write on

In some cases, it is possible to use “on” as a synonym of “about”. This substitution happens both in casual and formal contexts, so it’s good to keep it in mind! There is no difference in the structure of sentences, check it out:

Rosalie is writing a speech on social inequality.
I’ve just watched a documentary
on the fast-food industry.
You should write a book
on your time traveling in Asia.

Remember that you can listen to this episode as many times as you wish! You can also read along, and enjoy this extra content. That way, you'll be able to memorize these new structures and use them in conversations in the future. Keep in mind that the more daily contact you have with the English language, the better you’ll get, so make sure you’re here for our next episode!

See you next time!
