#017 English Expressions with the color Blue

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.

Hi everyone! I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

Let me start by telling you that I’m super excited to be back again and connecting with you! How are you doing? Are you feeling happy and relaxed? Or are you feeling blue?

We’re in September, so I can officially say that the summer holidays are over.

During summer, I’ve been resting, sunbathing, and enjoying my free time. I’ve recharged my batteries.

I like to be near the beach, enjoy the sun, the sea breeze, and eat delicious food. I must say that I’ve managed to disconnect from my routine completely.

How about you? How did you disconnect from your everyday worries?

Talking about disconnecting and taking a break. In September, a fascinating phenomenon occurs:

I’m referring myself to the post-holiday blues, also known as the post-travel depression.

By the way,  did you know that the color blue is actually the most popular color in the world? The color blue is also used to express feelings of sadnessnostalgia, or depression.

Here are two expressions where we use the color blue to describe sadness: “feeling blue” or “getting the blues.”


It seems that you are feeling blue. Is there something wrong?

Ann gets the blues every Christmas holiday. She lives away from home, so she misses her family.

You might like to know that the Blues is a music style characterized by the sometimes sad or down focus and melancholy melodies.

The phrase “blue Monday” means feeling sad. These are often, the feelings experienced by many when the weekend is over.

Let’s get back to the post-holiday blues, which is a mood experienced by many people after returning from a long trip or holiday.

Although we all love an extended holiday, we’ll need to face the downside: we’ll suffer from the post-holiday blues.

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.
