Show 1 Monday 3 April

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.


Hi this is The Daily English Show. Welcome to the show.
My name is Sarah. I’m from Aotearoa. I live in Tokyo and I’m an English teacher. I’ve been living in Japan for almost 5 years. I decided to make this video internet show for people who are studying English in Japan and anywhere in the world. You can watch this show on your computer or downloaded it to your video ipod. Either way I hope you enjoy the show. If you have any comments or suggestions please send me an email
On today’s show there will be Stick News, conversations with sarah, and questionanswer. Today’s conversation is: ordering at a café.
And the question for questionanswer is: What’s this and the topic is: kitchen.
First up is stick news.


Kia ora.
In Stick News today a lizard smuggler is facing jail time.
In Australia a man faces up to 10 years in jail after allegedly trying to smuggle six lizards out of the country.

The 22 year old Japanese man had the lizards hidden inside his hand luggage.
He was arrested as he tried to leave Perth International Airport on a flight to Singapore last Sunday night.

The man appeared in court in Perth on Tuesday charged with six counts of lizard smuggling.
And that was Stick News for Monday the 4th of April. (opps! I meant 3rd.)
Kia Ora.
