Show 225 Thursday 14 December

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah. Welcome to The Daily English Show.
I’d like to say hello to someone today called vip77.
He’s from Russia and he has some videos on YouTube. I came across them just the other day. He has some videos talking about his English study – he says that he wants to make videos to improve his English and that if anyone sees a mistake then please tell him.
So I think that’s an excellent idea for improving your English and it’s something which benefits both you and the person watching ... say if you talk about something interesting like Russia or your English study or whatever ... then people will enjoy watching and they’ll be happy to help you and correct your English.
So good on you and keep up the good work.
And anyone else who is studying English ... you should think about making video blogs ... I think it’s an excellent idea for improving your English.


Kia ora this is Stick News. Armed with a laptop, a cell phone and the internet, a man in Germany busted a burglar in Brazil.

A Brazilian businessman was traveling in Germany last week when he got an alert on his cell phone from the security system in his beach house.
Thanks to his laptop and the internet he could see live pictures of the burglar inside his house.
He then called his wife who called the local police.
They arrested the thief as he was trying on clothes.

And that was Stick News for Thursday the 14th of December.
Kia Ora.

Step 2: Read Matt’s lines and talk to Sarah.

Sarah Where are you now?

Matt I’m on go-go-sen driving towards Hakodate.

Sarah So Yotei-san is on your left?

Matt Yeah. I’ve just driven past Homac.

Sarah OK. Just keep going on that road for about 15 minutes.

Matt OK.

Sarah You’ll go past a big snowman on your left. Then a toilet paper factory ...

Matt Called Coreless?

Sarah Yeah that’s the one. And you’ll also go past the vegetable place ...

Matt Niseko view plaza?

Sarah Yeah. There aren’t really any landmarks around the shop so you just have to look out for a brown building with a red roof – that’s the building in front of the second hand shop.
The road curves right and just after the curve starts you have to turn off to the right.
You can see a big sign which says: chukohin yasuuri no mise ... can you read Japanese?

Matt No.

Sarah Oh, OK. Well on the sign there are 7 letters. The first two are read, then one blue letter, then three black ... the blue letter looks like three small squares.

Matt Oh, yeah, I can see it. It’s a white building right?

Sarah That’s the one.
