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: I swear this presentation is going to kill me. I’m in misery.
Logan: Stop being such a drama queen, it’s going to be fine. You worry too much.
Ryan:
How are you always so chill about these things? 
Logan:
Well, my mom always said worrying is like sitting on a rocking chair. 
Ryan:
What?
Logan:
It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.
Ryan:
Huh. That’s actually quite insightful.
Logan:
I know. So just do your best and quit your worrying. 

New expressions and Vocabulary!

- Drama queen

Do you know anyone who is unnecessarily dramatic? You can call that person a “drama queen”, whether it is a guy or a girl. Check out some extra examples:

Mark said that the test was very difficult, but I think he is being a drama queen.
Turn the lights off and stop being a
drama queen. Nothing’s going to happen!
I’m not a
drama queen, I’m just being honest about my feelings.

To indicate that someone is currently on a journey or a series of journeys, you can say that they are “on the road”:

- Chill

This work is the root of many expressions that describe someone that is not worried. You can use it in many different ways, starting with the adjective, in other words, a word that describes things or people as “relaxed” and “slow-paced”:

I want to have a chill weekend, I’m so tired.
Anna wants to watch a
chill movie today, she is not in the mood for horror.
We’re having a
chill party this time, just a few people.

You can also use this word as a verb, a synonym of “relax”:

Mom is going to be home soon, so chill.
Do you want to come over and just
chill with us?
Raven is
chilling in the living room.

“Chill out” has the same meaning but sounds a little more casual:

Chill out, everything is going to be fine.
After dinner we are just going to the beach to
chill out.
My cats love to
chill out in the sunlight.

- My mom always said

We commonly associate some sayings (“ditados”) to certain people, and we can make those associations with simple sentences such as this one. We can make sentences in the past or present:

My mom always said the early bird catches the worm.
My grandma always says
the best part of the orange is the peel.
My grandad used to say
that worrying was like sitting on a rocking chair.

- Insightful

This interesting descriptive word is the word “insight” with the addition of the suffix -ful, meaning “full of insight”, but do you know what “insight” means? It means a specific knowledge or understanding of something, so if something is “insightful’ it is full of knowledge, it has or it provides a profound understanding: 

This magazine article was surprisingly insightful, I didn’t know about this!
You should watch that documentary, it’s extremely
insightful.
We shouldn’t have gone to that meeting, it wasn’t very
insightful.

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!
