Can I take a ten?

Hey there!

Welcome to another episode of Walk ‘n’ Talk Level Up, our all-English podcast series! No diálogo de hoje, dois colegas de trabalho têm que lidar com uma agenda cheia, e um deles está precisando de um descanso.

Não deixe de falar as frases 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 a nice week!

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:

Ryan: So, our next meeting is at 6 p.m. Is everyone ready?
Jace:
Well, we’ve been working around the clock since 1 p.m. Could we take 10?
Ryan:
Sure. I’m gonna grab us some coffee, then.
Jace:
It’s about time! I thought you’d never do it!
Ryan:
Haha, real funny. Ok, let’s go now because the clock is ticking.
Jace:
Yeah! Just can’t wait until the next meeting is over… I’m overwhelmed!
Ryan:
You know that there’s another meeting at 7, don’t you?
Jace
: That’s the last thing I need right now!

New expressions and Vocabulary!

Around the clock

When something happens “around the clock” it happens without pauses, so let’s see some more sentences with this useful expression:
Jack has been playing this game around the clock, it must be good.
You don’t have to study
around the clock if you’re tired.
New information is being delivered
around the clock.
My whole department is working
around the clock to solve this problem.

Overwhelmed

This word doesn’t have a direct translation to Portuguese, so it can take a while to understand its usage! You can use it to say that someone is having a hard time dealing with the circumstances, or to describe someone who has more to do than they can actually deal with: 

The IT department is overwhelmed, we don’t know if they’ll finish today.
I have been getting too many messages from potential clients, I’m
overwhelmed.
Hillary is
overwhelmed by the situation, we should tell her to rest.

In the dialogue, we used it as a feeling, but we also have the verb “overwhelm” which means “sobrecarregar”, “oprimir” or “dominar”:

A feeling of excitement overwhelmed Kyle when he arrived at the waterfall.
I don’t want to
overwhelm you, but can I ask you a favor?
You have to avoid
overwhelming your clients with too many emails.

Don’t you?
This is the tag question we heard in this dialogue. Tag questions are small questions added to the end of a sentence, to ask for confirmation. They can be formed by any verb tense and any auxiliary. If the sentence is in the affirmative in the simple past, the tag question will be in the negative in the simple past, and vice-versa. Check it out: 

You didn’t work yesterday, did you?
You
worked yesterday, didn’t you?
Lily doesn’t eat meat, does she?
Lily
eats meat, doesn’t she?
We haven’t solved the problem, have we?
We
have solved the problem, haven’t we?

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 understand 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!
