Show 592 Wednesday 26 December

Watch today's show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.

I’m at Saison Club in Niseko.
This is our first day here and we’re going to be here every Wednesday. Saison Club has a hotel, café, restaurant and this cool club which I’m sitting in now. They even have karaoke, pool and a piano. It’s very cool.

And we’re really happy to be able to film here because it means we have lots of interesting locations we can use for filming. Like, at a café, playing pool, inside a room.

First, I’m going to take you on a bit of a tour of this place, then I’m going to talk about a common mistake.

So this is what the outside looks like.
I love this window.
I like their logo too. Cool font.
This is the road.
Saison Club is on Route 66.
This is a duck.
Some snowmobiles.
A machine for clearing snow.
And this is the inside.
They have some cool lounge areas.
A fire.
And a restaurant.

Wednesday Mistake

Mmm, this is a nice place ...

And the price is not expensive. x
And it’s not too expensive.
And the prices are pretty reasonable.
And the prices aren’t too bad.


Kia Ora, this is Stick News. Yesterday, for the first time, the queen’s Christmas message was broadcast on YouTube.

Every year on Christmas day, The Royal Christmas Message is broadcast to the Commonwealth.
The first Royal Christmas Message was issued by George the fifth in 1932. Apparently, the King was “originally hesitant about using the relatively untried medium of radio to issue a Christmas Message”.
In 1957, the message was televised.
That year, the queen said, “That it is possible for some of you to see me today is just another example of the speed at which things are changing all around us.”
This year, fifty years later, the Queen’s message was broadcast on YouTube, on The Royal Channel, the official channel of the British Monarchy. In her speech, the queen talked about family, Jesus and war.

And that was Stick News for Wednesday 26th of December.
Kia Ora.

at Niseko Weiss

Today KNF went snowboarding with some of the staff from Saison Club.
They went to a place called Weiss which is one of the ski areas in Niseko.
They did cat snowboarding, which means you get driven up the mountain on a thing called a cat, and then you snowboard down.

Simon So what are you going to sing?

Sarah Oh, I don’t know. Wow, Hayley Westenra is in here ...

Simon Who’s she?

Sarah She’s a New Zealand girl.

Simon Why don’t you sing one of her songs?

Sarah Hmm, Amazing Grace, I don’t think so. Mmm ... I don’t know.

Simon Can’t you find anything you like?

Sarah No, I can find lots of songs that I like, just nothing that looks easy to sing.
Maybe I’ll try rapping instead.

Simon You can rap? Wow.

Sarah No ... I can’t rap. I just think it might be easier than singing.
