Episode 92: Pet Hates


Hello! No, we’re not talking about animals that we hate this week :) A pet hate is something that most people don’t mind but you find really annoying; for example, people eating loudly, tapping their fingers on the table or maybe speaking loudly on their phones. Your hosts Jennifer and Dan chat about their pet hates (they have lots!) as well as things they do that drive their partners crazy. The language focus this week is all about phrases you can use when you find yourself in these difficult situations and are not sure what to say.
