Show 349 Tuesday 17 April

Watch today’s show at YouTube.

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

Well, yesterday I was an extra in a movie.
And it was very boring. I just sat in a chairlift for about 4 hours.
And I didn’t see anything exciting at all, like movie stars or red carpets.
And I wasn’t actually in the shot anyway … so I think my chances of getting an Oscar are pretty small.
But, I didn’t come away empty handed. True to their word, they gave the extras a present for our 4 hours work.
I got two presents even. One was this keitai strap, advertising beer.
And one was this, which, believe it or not is a necklace … with a rubber thing on it, with the name of the movie.


Kia ora, in Stick News today a Prince in England has broken up with his girlfriend.

William Arthur Philip Louis is a 24-year-old prince from England.
He is second in the line of succession to the British throne.
This means if his grandmother and father both die, he could become King.
William has been seeing a girl called Kate for almost 5 years.
Some people thought they would get married.
But, they broke up.

And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 17th of April.
Kia Ora.
