Episode 34: Valentine's Day

Can you feel the love in the air this week? We can, because it’s Valentine’s Day week! This is not your typical Valentine’s Day themed English resource, as we’re not sharing the history of the day or why we celebrate. Instead, you’ll hear some of Jennifer and Dan’s fondest memories and a lot of related idioms, phrasal verbs, and expressions.

Stay tuned to our language focus, where we’ll share ways to learn, review, and memorize idioms and English expressions!
