#299 The Gold Rush 1849

#299 The Gold Rush 1849

🄴 Speak English Now Podcast: Learn English | Speak English without grammar.

Today, we're diving into an exciting part of history called the Gold Rush. Ever thought about hunting for treasure? Lots of people did back then! What was the Gold Rush? During the Gold Rush people traveled to places where they thought they could find gold. For example, in 1849, many went to California because they had heard they could find gold there. This event is called the California Gold Rush. Imagine: people from all over the world came to California, hoping to become rich. Why did people go there? People joined the Gold Rush for different reasons. The main one was to find gold and make money. They thought this would make their lives better and help their families. Some were looking for adventure and wanted to explore new places. What was life like during this time? Life during the Gold Rush was tough. Those seeking gold traveled a long way and lived in camps. They used simple tools like pans and shovels to search for gold in rivers and dirt. It was very exciting when someone found gold, but many didn't find much and were discouraged. Who were the people involved? Imagine leaving your home and traveling to a completely new place, not knowing what you would find. That's exactly what thousands did during this period. They were called "forty-niners" because so many arrived in 1849. Men, women, and families all took the risk, dreaming of striking it rich. Lots of these adventurers sailed on ships, while others walked or rode horses along dusty trails to reach California. The journey was not easy; there were dangers like bad weather and tough roads. But the hope of finding gold kept them going. When they arrived, finding gold was harder than most thought. They spent long days in cold rivers or under the hot sun, looking through mud and stones. Some lucky ones found big nuggets, while many others found only small flakes or nothing at all. What was the impact of the Gold Rush? It changed many places. For example, San Francisco grew quickly in the USA. People built new shops, houses, and roads. However, it also caused problems like damage to the land and unfair treatment of local people. The Gold Rush was a very important time. It shows us how the dream of finding wealth can make many people move and change places. Learning about this era helps us understand how history is full of big changes and adventures. So, that's a little about this fascinating period. It was a time of hope, hard work, and big changes.

#298 Differences between Do and Make

#298 Differences between Do and Make

🄴 Speak English Now Podcast: Learn English | Speak English without grammar.

Understanding "Do" and "Make" Today, we're going to talk about something that confuses many students: when to use "do" and when to use "make." When to Use "Do" Let's start with "do." We use "do" when we talk about general tasks or activities that don't create something new. It's like saying you're doing something that's part of your routine. Let's hear some examples: Do homework: "After school, I always do my homework." Do the dishes: "In our house, we do the dishes right after dinner." Do exercises: "My friend does exercises every morning to stay healthy." So remember, when you're talking about doing a job or something you need to finish, "do" is the word to use! When to Use "Make" Now, let's talk about "make." We use "make" when we create something or when there's a result from what we do. It's like making something new or making a choice. Here are some examples with "Make:" Make a cake: "Why don't you make a delicious cake?" Make a decision: "It can be tough, but everyone needs to make decisions sometimes." Make a phone call: "I make a phone call to check on my friend every week." Remember that when something new is created from what you do, like a cake or a decision, you should use "make." Let's hear more examples: Do your best: "In every competition, it's important to do your best." Do your hair: "Every morning, I do my hair before going to school." Do the laundry: "We usually do the laundry on Saturdays." Do a favor: "Could you do me a favor and pass the salt?" Do business: "His company does business with clients worldwide." Do a dance: "At the party, everyone was doing a fun dance." Do damage: "The storm did a lot of damage to the town." More Examples Using "Make:" Make friends: "When you go to a new school, it's important to make friends." Make a list: "Before we go shopping, let's make a list of everything we need." Make a joke: "He likes to make jokes to make everyone laugh." Make peace: "After arguing, they made peace and were friends again." Make money: "She has a wonderful job that helps her make a lot of money." Make a plan: "Let's make a plan for the trip." Make a choice: "You need to make a choice; even if you don't like it."   Great! Let's continue practicing "do" and "make" with a on point-of-view lesson."   Get the transcript on my website:  https://speakenglishpodcast.com/differences-between-do-and-make/

Hi! I’m Georgiana, and I’m back with a new episode. I’m here to help you speak English fluently. And what do you need to speak fluently? You need to LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN, and LISTEN. 🙂 If you want to help me, SHARE the podcast with your friends and family. That would mean a lot. Thanks. On my website you can get the 5 Secrets to speak English and also my premium courses. Before we start, get the transcript at: SpeakEnglishPodcast.com/podcast It’s completely free! Ok, let’s start! Today, we’re talking about the Internet – something we use daily. Knowing internet words is super important whether you’re checking websites, chatting with friends, or shopping online. You will learn different internet words to help you feel more comfortable online. Website Navigation: The Internet is like a vast library with countless books. Each website is a different book; to read them, you need to know how to navigate. Think of website navigation as finding your way around the library. You use a website’s menus, links, and buttons to move from one page to another. Homepage: Imagine a book with a cover. The homepage is like the cover of a website. It’s the first page you see when you visit a website. It tells you what the website is about. Tabs: You might want to read multiple books at once when you go to a library. Tabs in a web browser are like having different books open on different pages. You can click on a tab to switch between different web pages. Cookie: Cookies are like bookmarks in the library. Websites use them to remember your preferences and what you do on their site, making your online experience more convenient. URL Bar/Address Bar: The address bar is like a search box in the library. You can type the web address of a website, and your browser will take you there. It’s also where you can see the website’s address. Cache: Imagine if the library had a storage room to keep some books handy. That’s what the cache is. It stores web data temporarily on your device to make websites load faster when you visit them again. Streaming: Streaming is like watching a movie online without having to download it first. You can also stream music and other media content over the Internet. Buffering: When you stream a video or music, sometimes it needs to load a little bit before you can start watching or listening. So, buffering prevents interruptions. Download Manager: A download manager is like a librarian who helps you organize and track the books (or files) you download from the Internet. Firewall: Think of a firewall as a protective shield around your computer. It keeps out any unwanted or harmful visitors from the Internet. Router: A router is like a postman delivering letters to different houses. It connects multiple devices in your home or office to the Internet. Let’s continue with a surprising point-of-view story:
