Episode 59 – To Make An Announcement

Hola muchachos you are listening to episode #59, yes you heard that correctly, episode #59. Numero cincuenta y nueve. Wow! We are now up to episode #59.

My name is Milena from Englishmadesimple.net – www.englishmadesimple.net.

As you can see, I’ve decided not to have the intro music for this particular episode, you will just have to listen to the sound of my soothing voice. Please don’t fall asleep. I need you to stay awake because I have an announcement to make, ver shortly.

How are you? I trust you’ve been well, keeping safe and out of trouble. I’ve just had delicious dinner at a really cool Vietnamese take away place close to where I live, wow, it’s the first time I’ve tried the food from Vietnam, my local place calls it the Vietnamese Street food – it’s so light and delicious, full of flavours, so glad I found it! By the way, hello to my listeners in Vietnam! I have listeners from Vietnam too. How cool is that?

So anyway guys, you are listening to the Short and Sweet segment of English Made Simple show. Short and sweeeeeet just like me. The short and sweet show – try saying that when you are drunk – the short and sweet show – it’s hard, hard to say it, a real tongue-twister (trabalenguas)- well, it’s supposed to be 5 mins or less, that was the initial plan for this segment, but because I loooove to talk and mostly about gibberish – then the show sometimes goes a bit over 5 mins.

So what am I supposed to do in today’s episode? What was it that I was supposed to do in this episode? Hmm Oh yes, I was supposed to make an announcement.

If you are new to the show and are wondering why I keep repeating this phrase Supposed To – well, that’s because we learnt this in the last episode, episode #58. Go and check it out! The last episode!

So as I was saying, I have an announcement to make. I have decided to use Short and Sweet for this announcement.

To make an announcement – what does that actually mean?

According to huevon inteligente – from now on this is going to be the name for any dictionary out there – we are just gonna call it weon inteligente – To make an announcement means: to announce something publicly about a fact or an intention
Think of the word announcement…. as a declaration of some sort, a formal or an official statement or a broadcast – those would be some of the synonyms of the word announcement.
That’s something new for you guys today.

So the announcement that I would like to make is that from this week, from this week on, you will be able to listen to English Made Simple via YouTube! If you are a YouTube junkie, if you are addicted to YouTube, then this is good news for you amigos.

I will share the link to my YouTube channel in the Show Notes, on my website and on Facebook. I’ll try to share it wherever possible. I’d appreciate it if you could please click on subscribe this will help me rank on YouTube. That’s how YouTube works.

I am going to do videos a bit later on, but I am a bit shy when it comes to videos haha I think I need to be drunk when I do videos. It’s a bit nerve wracking.

Speaking of websites, English Made Simple website is having a makeover, another useful word, it’s actually one word  – a makeover, cambio de imagen or renovación. For non Spanish speakers it just means it is going to have a new look, new desing. It’s coming soon! How exciting! I am very excited about that.

Your support is what keeps me going! Big thanks to all of you for listening to my gibberish and putting up with me!

Well that was short and sweet, just like me! Anyway, keep listening the show my little munchkins.

In the next episode we will talk about the difference between Supposed To and Meant To. Is there a difference between these two expressions? I don’t know, no lo se! We’ll see, listen and find out next week.

It’s been a pleasure as always, hasta la proxima muchachos! Hasta la proxima!
