March 14th, 2016

Episode 372 of 489 episodes

Get on your feet, talk a walk, and listen to this episode on how to talk about feet in English. Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:37 Fast dialog: 14:58 Walt: What are you doing? Francesca: I’m selecting and organizing my photos for a presentation. Walt: Oh, can I see? All of these photos are of feet! Francesca: Well, I am a podiatrist and I’m giving a talk about foot conditions. Walt: Ew, some of these are really disgusting! Francesca: You’re looking at some of the most common foot conditions: blisters, corns, bunions, calluses, and athlete’s foot. Walt: What is that? Francesca: That’s an ingrown toenail and those are infected toenails. Walt: I’m really glad I don’t have either one of those problems. Francesca: You should be even happier you don’t have one of the more serious conditions such as fallen arches, a clubfoot, or arthritis in your feet. Walt: But I do have one problem. Let me take these shoes off and show you. Francesca: Pee-ew! I don’t even need to look at them to know you have very bad foot odor. Walt: What should I do? Francesca: Get some new shoes, keep them dry, and change your socks every day. Walt: Every day? You mean I have to own more than one pair? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
