Transcript:

Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

Today I will talk about one of the wealthiest people in the world. His name is Warren Buffett.

Born in 1930 in Nebraska, Buffet is a fascinating character because of his inspiring story.

As a child, Buffett showed interest in stocks. He was writing stock prices on the board in his father’s office. His father was a stockbroker and future congressman.

And while nowadays most children play video games, Warren bought his first stock was at the age of 11 and filed his first taxes at age 13.

Because like many children of the Great Depression, Buffett grew up to respect the value of money.

He became so frugal that when he moved to New York to attend business school, he lived at the YMCA to save money.

“YMCA” is short for the Young Men’s Christian Association.

I also used the word “frugal,” which refers to someone careful when using money or food.

For example:

  • a frugal lifestyle.
  • a frugal meal of bread and soup.

However, you can replace the word “frugal” with the words “economical” or “sparing.”

Let’s continue.

Buffett started working at the age of 13 as a paperboy delivering newspapers in the morning and afternoon.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, he enrolled in Columbia School of Business, where he graduated with a Master of Science in Economics.

Only five years after his graduation, Warren started Buffett Partnership Ltd.

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.
