#052 Kinship – Relatives – Family connections in English

Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.

Transcript:

Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana, founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. I want to help you speak English fluently, speaking English is easier than it looks! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

In today’s lesson, let’s talk about kinship. That’s to say, the relationship between the different members of a family.

Then, through a mini-story lesson, you’ll practice vocabulary and of course your fluency. I’ll use the question and answer technique to get you involved in the conversation.

By the way, thank you so much for listening wherever you are. If you can, please write a comment on iTunes. That’s how you help me reach more people.

Well, today we’re gonna talk about family, and in particular kinship. Kinship is what we call the relationship between two people from the same family – for example, father, son, etc.

Well, on this subject, I have a confession to make. Sometimes I also get confused with the kinship of my own family, especially for distant relatives. A relative is a member of your family, by the way. It can be a bit complicated, but it’s not a language issue. It’s about always wanting to define what relationship you have with someone else in your family, especially if you come from a large family.

Today you’re gonna learn the most fundamental kinship. I recommend that you listen to this episode several times to better understand and consolidate.

I’ll give an example of a family and name each member. It’ll be easier that way.

And make sure you read the text. I’ve added a simple family tree graphic with the names of the family members.

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.

“I did not study English when I was a child. I contacted Georgiana at a time when I felt blocked. She has helped me to lose my fear of speaking English.” Ana
