SPEAK EASY PROGRAM – Join here.
Hey guys, welcome to English Made Simple, this is episode number 155, number one hundred and fifty five, numero ciento cincuenta y cinco.
Welcome guys, welcome to the English Made Simple show, my name is Milena from englishmadesimple.net.
How are ya? What have you been up to? Just means, how have you been?
Mhmm that’s great, I am happy for you.
So amigos, in today’s episode, I am going talk about my new daily routine. Then I want you to think about yours. You can tell me about your routine if you want, if you are not too shy. What is your typical morning routine? You can share it inside the Facebook group or email me.
I would also like to introduce you to my new program called Speak Easy, which starts on 20th November. It’s a 3 week coaching program designed to help you speak English by learning phrases that native speakers use. (Most of these phrases you won’t find in the textbooks.) I wish someone explained those phrases to me when I was learning English. I had to learn them the hard way and the long way.
But you are lucky because you have me to teach you!
To learn more about the program go to englishmadesimple.net/easy
The program starts on the 20th November and you will be speaking English from Day 1.
Was one of your goals earlier this year to learn to speak English? If so, then this program is for you.
It’s time you start investing in yourself and into your training. This when you start learning faster than if you were learning everything by yourself.
Right. Now, I’d like to share a quick story about my new morning routine.
You know what happened to me the other day. I want to share a quick story of what happened to me the other day.
What happened Milena? Here’s what happened….
I turned right.
I made a right turn.
For the first time since I arrived in Adelaide I made a right turn when I was going for my daily walk.
My morning routine usually involves me going for a walk to get my espresso fix. *I gotta get my coffee fix* You know how much I love coffee!
By the way, the story is not about coffee.
The story is about me breaking my routine.
Let’s go back to my daily routine.
Ok so what I like to do every morning before I even prepare breakfast is walk. I like to go for a walk then I stop for my caffeine fix, my espresso fix. And then I continue walking.
Every morning when I leave my apartment, I live in an apartment, I have to leave through a gate. And every time I leave the building I always turn left.
I always turn to my left. I have to pass by pubs, dirty pubs, pass by backpackers and of course avoid getting attacked by those aggressive birds.
So after a month of going down the same way, one day I decided not to turn left as I am exiting the building but instead I decided to turn right.
I made an executive decision to turn right.
And wow, o m g. Oh my God. That was a great decision. That was the right decision. Turning right was the right decision.
I didn’t have to walk far to see this beautiful park, it was like a big garden, it had all sorts of flowers, roses, amazing looking trees, wonderful waterfalls, it’s like you were in a fairy-tale, the waterfalls were not big, they were man-made, more like fountains concealed inside the park, I could see all sorts of birds, parrots, magpies, sparrows, budgies – these are some names of the birds native to Australia.
And there was also this beautiful creek that was going through the park. Creek – spelt as CREEK. Creek is a small river in the middle of the park.
It was just magical. It felt like I was in a completely different place, didn’t feel like I was in the city.
I also made new friends in the park.
Ducks. In Spanish ducks are called patos. These are my new friends. I took a photo of them and shared them inside the Instagram.
And I saw little ducklings, baby ducks. Patitos. (Spanish)
This is now my new morning routine. Who would’ve thought that turning right was the right way to go. It was for me in this case.
Have you heard the expression: A Walk In The Park?
When something is a Walk In The park, it means it’s very easy to do.
For example, for some people, learning another language is like a walk in the park, but for others it’s hard, too difficult to do.
If you register for the Speak Easy program, by the end of the 3 weeks speaking English will be like a walk in the park to you. You will develop a new routine.
