In the last week I shared you the types of genre. In this week, as it's nearly New Year, I'd like to share with you a dialogue about party plans.
Suda: Hi Nan. What are you doing this evening?
Nan: I've got tickets for the party. What are you doing?
Suda: Nothing much, hanging out at house, just chilling out listening to music.
In the part 1, there are two new vocabularies. Let's see together.
First, hanging out
Hanging out is a slang expression often used by younger people which means you spend time doing nothing in particular. It's often used with words lihe park, mall, store, downtown, for example;
"Chaz and Dave spend all their time just hanging out at the mall, they never do anything interesting."
Hanging out + at + the park/ mall/ store/etc.
Hanging out + downtown.
Second, chilling out
Chilling out, means to relax. The interesting thing phrase is the way native speakers of English say it. Although we write "chilling out" when we say the phrase it sounds like chill-in out,without the -g on the end.
