Basic English Conversation in Slow English
Hi. Welcome back to my channel, speaking English can be really challenging. I thought it would be super helpful to do a basic conversation’s video for you guys. So today I have here with me my amazing sister Jessica. Thank you for being here Jess. You’re welcome.
So let’s talk
What is your name? My name is Jessica, What is your name? My name is Camille. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. How old are you? I’m 41 years old and you? I’m 34. And are you in a relationship? I am. I have been married for 22, it will be 22 years in August. Wow, that’s amazing. And yourself? Yes, I’m married and we will be celebrating our 16 year anniversary in July. So nice! Yes, yes.
Where were you born? I was born in the state of Michigan. And you? Also Michigan, sisters! And where do you live now? Currently I have been living in the state of New Hampshire for 23 years. Wow and I’m living in South Carolina. I love it here. Yes! The sunny south.
It’s true! Do you have any children? We have 4 children, 2 boys, 2 girls. My oldest son is married, my 18 year old just graduate high school, my 14 year old will start high school and my youngest will start middle school. Wow, you’re in such a different season with ages. I have 3 kids. They’re 6, 3, and 1. That’s hard. That’s full time, you’re in the thick of it right now. Yes, exactly.
What do you do for work? Well I’ve been blessed to be a stay at home mom especially all the little years my kids were home but on the side I do house cleaning jobs and property management for a summer vacation rental. Okay. And what about you? So I am also a stay at home mom and I tell people that I study languages full-time because I feel like I do. I also manage and clean our Airbnb property. That’s neat.
What about you? Do you have any hobbies? A few, for many years I enjoy exercising. So I get out and exercise, a variety of different work outs, hiking, walking, yoga, weight training and also spending time with family. I love to get together with girlfriends, go out for a cup of coffee, have my family over. Yeah. That’s great. I feel like I could say all of those same things and then probably also add maybe cooking, studying languages, travel.
Speaking of travel, where has been the favorite place you visited? I was blessed with the opportunity to go to Israel just this past February. It was with a group, so a total of 42 of us. We all met there. That was life-changing for me. It stretched me on every level. I say physically, emotionally, spiritually. It changed my life. Wow, that’s amazing! And where have you traveled that you have enjoyed? Oh, many places. Last summer we did a big Europe trip and one of my favorite places was Northern Italy, just the mountains and the lakes, just so beautiful. We had so much fun! I hope there is more traveling in my future. I think so! I hope so. Yeah!!
What about your favorite kind of music, what do you like to listen to? Mostly I like contemporary Christian praise music or country music. When I’m working out and exercising anything with a boppy tune. Yes! I think my favorite is pop music. I love listening to pop music in Italian or Spanish or Portuguese just to help me also learn. Right. I think it’s a lot of fun. Right.
Do you have any pets? We do. We have I say my 5th child, my fur baby Bentley. We’ve had a little shitzu dog now for 5 years. He’s so cute. He’s just like part of the fam. Yeah. I don’t have any pets. I feel like we travel too much but I do like your little dog. Yes. He’s cute. They are a big responsibility. Yeah, for sure. It’s fun.
I enjoyed getting to know you Jessica! Yes, the same! Yeah, thank you so much for being here on my channel. You’re welcome.
