Hi everyone and welcome to episode 99. This is an English language podcast brought to you by two native speaker teachers, Dan from the UK and Jennifer from the USA. Every week we choose a topic, chat about it and then finish with a language focus and this week we’re talking (and laughing!) all about something we’ve all experienced at one time or another - embarrassing situations. Find out all about the times your hosts have found themselves in embarrassing situations and then discover the difference between the often confused feelings of embarrassment and shame. Enjoy!
