Alrighty amigos y amigas, so we’re at number 238. And my name is Milena and I am the host of the English Made Simple show, AND you can find me at, englishmadesimple (punto) net.

I trust everyone is fine and dandy.

I trust everyone is comfortable where they are at the moment.

Driving, walking, jogging or even working. You’re listening to the EMS podcast because you chose to listen to it. And I just want to say thank you. Thank you for landing me your ears. I don’t say this enough, but I’m grateful that you choose to listen to my gibberish every week.

Today’s episode is going to be short and sweet. I’ll share 2 expressions using the word “shy” – And we’ll have Repeat After me as well.

Oh actually before I start with today’s show, if you haven’t listened to episode number 237 yet, go back to the last episode and listen to the end.

At the end of that particular episode, I’ve inserted something called “bloopers”

What are bloopers? Well, I explain it later in today’s show.

But now, back to today’s episode.

I wanna ask you something. I wanna ask you amigos y amigas – would you consider yourself a shy person?

Basically, are you a shy person?

The reason I ask is because… as you know I’ve been promoting my Conversation Starter challenge and I was wondering why people didn’t take it up.

So I approached quite a few of you just to get feedback on this. And the feedback I got so far is the same across the board. Either people don’t have time to complete the challenge or they are too shy to practice these simple conversation starters.
