Amy: What have you been pulled over1 for?
Curtis: I’ve been pulled over for tailgating2 an ambulance.
Amy: Oh, my God. I didn’t think that was the story he was going to pick.
Curtis: No, this is a very, very bad thing to do. I don’t recommend you doing this.
Amy: Okay. What’s tailgating?
Curtis: Tailgating is following somebody too close. So usually you have to leave a car
length in between the car in front of you and your car. And I at that point …
Amy: Had a very, very bad habit of driving way too close.
Curtis: Right. And in between–or I was in between the emergency ambulance vehicle in
front of me and a police car behind me. But I didn’t know it was a police car because it
didn’t have the lights.
Amy: Oh, it was a ghost car3.
Curtis: It was a ghost car.
Amy: Sneaky4.
Curtis: Or an unmarked car. Yeah.
Amy: Right. An unmarked car.
Curtis: And right away, he turned on his lights that were on his dashboard and the front of
his car and his siren. And he was mad.
Amy: He was.
Curtis: But I got lucky5 on that one too. Even though he was mad, he didn’t give me a
ticket.
Amy: Yeah. Sometimes they let you off. They–like they let you off the hook6 or I don’t
know. They give you, what is it? A warning?
Curtis: A warning7

Amy: Yeah, they give you a warning. Don’t do it again. Oh, yeah. It’s a written warning.
And it goes on record that you’ve been warned about this. But they don’t actually give
you a fine.
Curtis: Yeah. He kept track of it for sure.

Phrase Explanations:

  1. Pulled over: Stopped by the police
  2. Tailgating: Driving very closely to the vehicle in front of you
  3. Ghost car: A police car with no lights or markings. Also known as an unmarked car.
  4. Sneaky: Doing something in a secret, unfair or not obvious way
  5. I got lucky: To have good luck unexpectedly
  6. Let you off the hook: When you get caught doing something wrong or illegal and you don’t get punished for it. ‘Let you off’ is the short way of expressing this.
  7. Warning: An official notice that you have been warned not to do something again

一些深受喜爱的电视剧角色就像老朋友一样存在于我们的生活中,并对我们产生翻天覆地的影响。我们为之捧腹大笑,也为之潸然泪下,甚至不惜撒谎请假,只为能够端坐在电视机前得知他们的最新进展。自始至终,我们对他们如痴如醉。但是还有很多东西是观众无法从银幕上得知的,比如隐藏在这些电视剧中的小秘密。下面就是一些受人追捧的电视剧的幕后故事。

Why has nobody taught you how to study a English Conversation before?

很难想象《迷失》中若是没有杰克·谢帕德作主角,这部剧会变成什么样。大概只有编剧真的这样写了,我们才会知道答案吧。美国广播公司引进这部剧后,杰克·谢帕德这一角色本该在坠机事件中遇难,接着将由凯特在这部剧中担任更多的领导角色。

I felt like every time I learned something new… there was more I had to learn. To make it worse, there were so many resources available online! It was hard to find a good resource that would teach me the real life language that is used every day for the INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED level.

I am a native English speaker but I was studying Spanish on my own.  For about 14 years but I was stuck at a beginner level until I started to study the right things.

Once I discovered this technique of studying real conversations, my level in the language improved from a beginner to a confident advanced speaker quickly, without as much effort. Which is why we decided to build a website based on the most effective techniques I have personally used and I know work very well.

One of the key parts to building vocabulary and improving my listening skills was having access to good audio of real conversations and accurate transcriptions. Which is why we make sure that every one of our audio lessons has either subtitled videos or includes access to English Conversations Lessons with a PDF. 

I’d like to share a secret with you…

All you need right now to improve your English to the next level is a method and resource that focuses on the right English, real English. By learning and seeing the right words, right verbs and hearing interesting phrases that real people actually use, you are going to feel more confident speaking while advancing your English level quickly.
