Show 682 Tuesday 25 March

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

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

The movie I recommend today is called Before Sunrise. I think it’s a great movie. It’s very romantic.

Not much happens in the movie. Basically just two people are on a train and they meet and then they spend one night together just walking and talking. So it’s perfect for studying English conversation.

The conversation we’re going to do today is from near the start of the movie when they first meet and they’re making small talk.


Kia Ora, this is Stick News. Last night Britney Spears guest-starred on an American TV show.

Britney Spears is famous for her pop music. She’s also an actress.
Last night, she guest-starred on a sitcom called How I Met Your Mother. Britney played a receptionist at a dermatologist’s office who develops a crush on a patient.
Thanks to her appearance, the show scored its highest rating ever.

And that was Stick News for Tuesday 25 of March.
