Episode 79: New Words in English


Noob. Destinesia. To throw shade. If you are wondering what these word mean then this is the episode for you! This week your podcast hosts Jennifer (the US) & Dan (the UK) are looking at some of the more recent additions to the English language. Find out about 15 (there were more but we ran out of time!) new words, how to pronounce them and how and when you can use them. After the chat Dan goes through all of the words a little more slowly to make sure you can fully understand & start using them today. Amazeballs!

We hope you enjoy the episode.
