December 9th, 2013

Episode 15 of 489 episodes

Win an Olympic medal in English by listening to this episode on winter sports. Slow Dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:01 Fast Dialog: 18:47 Hanna: It’s finally snowing outside! Soon we’ll be able to get out the sled. Ahmed: Sledding is for kids. I’m going downhill skiing as soon as there’s enough powder. I can’t wait to feel the wind in my hair as I careen down the side of a mountain. Hanna: You’re more likely to be on the bunny slopes! You’ve only been on a snowmobile once and gone cross-country skiing a few times. What makes you think you’ll be able to ski the slopes like an expert? Ahmed: I can ice skate better than you can, so no matter what, I know I’ll be better at it than you’ll be. When I get the hang of skiing, I’ll probably try snowboarding. Hanna: Now I know you’re blowing smoke. You don’t have the nerve. Ahmed: Oh, yeah? I challenge you a game of one-on-one ice hockey. Hanna: You’re twice my size! Make it a snowball fight. Ahmed: You’re on! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
