Transcript Snapshot (Coronavirus: Staying Sane During Isolation)


Hi guys, you’re listening to the English Made Simple show, this is episode number 2-5-1, two hundred and fifty one, numero dos cientos cincuenta y uno.

Welcome back everyone, it’s Milena from

How is everyone doing during these crazy times?

I still can’t believe it that we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. It’s just hard to fathom.
‘hard to fathom’ – means it’s hard to imagine.

I’m sure like most of you listening in 2020, you’re also keeping to the strict rules imposed by your governments.

In Australia, we have to abide by social distancing, only leave home to go out for essentials like buying groceries at the supermarket or going to the chemist.

So the majority of time we’re indoors. Not allowed to visit family, too.

So having said this, my husband and I have been keeping ourselves indoors.
We haven’t driven ourselves crazy yet, no fights yet.

We both work from home now, it’s a bit crowded at home.
And now we haven’t fought yet, but we’re close. ‘Fought’ is the past tense of ‘fight’. Or ‘pelear’ in Spanish.

It’s only been three weeks in isolation, but it feels like it’s been 3 months, not weeks.

What do you guys do when you’re all day at home? How do you manage to keep peace at home?
