In this episode, Christina and Linda talk about:

  • the difference between studying for a test and learning 'real-world' English
  • some unique ways people speak where they are from
  • how tricky homophones are

The extra mile (useful English vocabulary you'll hear in the podcast):

  • existential = concerned with existence, especially human existence as viewed in the theories of existentialism
  • to roll off your tongue = something which 'rolls off your tongue' is easy to say or pronounce or enjoyable to say
  • [vocabulary expression #3] = to pronounce distinctly; to express well in words
