#031 Have fun learning English with riddles

Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, your resource for practicing your English speaking and listening. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to learn English more effectively.


Today you are going to learn English in a fun way.

You will learn new English vocabulary through fun riddles.

And with a mini-story, you will improve your fluency by answering lots of questions.

Let’s start!

One thing is clear. You want to become fluent in English. That’s why it’s a great idea to get to know the typical expressions and riddles.

Riddles often make us laugh out loud. Everyone knows that laughter is healthy because it relaxes the brain and body, helps us release stress, and promotes positive mental health. This way you will learn English more easily.

So, I’m going to start telling you some riddles.

First, I’ll tell you the riddle, and then I’ll wait 10 seconds to give you time to answer. But don’t worry. If you need more time, you can pause the audio.

Remember that on my website SpeakEnglishPodcast.com you will find the transcript of this episode.

Let’s start!

Think about it,

1) What has to be broken before you can use it?

I’ll give you a hint. It’s something to eat.

Answer: An egg.

Yes, of course, it’s an egg, I don’t know about you, but I always remove the eggshell before eating it.

Let’s continue.

2. I’m tall when I’m young, and I’m short when I’m old. What am I?

I’ll give you a hint. It’s something you can see in the dark.

Answer: A candle.

Yes, of course, it is a candle; as the candle burns, it gets shorter. Although this also happens with people. We also lose height as we get older.

3. What month of the year has 28 days?

Answer: All of them

That’s right; all months have at least 28 days. Although in a leap year, the extra day is added to the end of February, making it 29 days instead of 28.

4. What is full of holes but still holds water?

Answer: A sponge

If there is a hole in a glass or bucket, the water comes out, but the sponge will absorb the water even though it has holes in it.

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
