We have a new streamlined format! Each week, it’ll be conversational vocabulary in an audio English lesson in just minutes!
Remember: 1) You can download the audio 2) You can adjust the speed
Elliot: Dude, I know you’re starving, but you don’t got to wolf it down, ya know?
Jon: How come?
Elliot: You got to savor it, ya know?
Jon: What if this is how I like to eat?
Elliot: You’re never going to find a girl this way, being so sloppy, psh.
Jon: So, you’re saying that if I clean up my act, I can be a ladies man?
Jon: Tell me something. When’s the last time you’ve been on a date?
Elliot: *eating noises*
Example: I skipped breakfast and lunch. I’m starving. = I’m so hungry because I didn’t eat breakfast and lunch.
- Note: this is an exaggeration.
How come? (question)
Example: How come you didn’t call me? = Why didn’t you call me?
- Note: this is smoother and more casual (as well as less threatening) than “why”
to savor (verb)
Example: After finishing his first marathon, Bob took a moment to savor the victory = Bob really enjoyed the success of finishing his first marathon.
- Related vocab: “to cherish”
disorderly, unorganized, messy, bad-mannered
Example: She told me I was a sloppy dresser. = She didn’t like how messy my fashion is.
