Amy: What have you been pulled over1 for?
Curtis: I’ve been pulled over for tailgating2 an ambulance.
Amy: Oh, my God. I didn’t think that was the story he was going to pick.
Curtis: No, this is a very, very bad thing to do. I don’t recommend you doing this.
Amy: Okay. What’s tailgating?
Curtis: Tailgating is following somebody too close. So usually you have to leave a car
length in between the car in front of you and your car. And I at that point …
Amy: Had a very, very bad habit of driving way too close.
Curtis: Right. And in between–or I was in between the emergency ambulance vehicle in
front of me and a police car behind me. But I didn’t know it was a police car because it
didn’t have the lights.
Amy: Oh, it was a ghost car3.
Curtis: It was a ghost car.
Amy: Sneaky4.
Curtis: Or an unmarked car. Yeah.
Amy: Right. An unmarked car.
Curtis: And right away, he turned on his lights that were on his dashboard and the front of
his car and his siren. And he was mad.
Amy: He was.
Curtis: But I got lucky5 on that one too. Even though he was mad, he didn’t give me a
ticket.
Amy: Yeah. Sometimes they let you off. They–like they let you off the hook6 or I don’t
know. They give you, what is it? A warning?
Curtis: A warning7

Amy: Yeah, they give you a warning. Don’t do it again. Oh, yeah. It’s a written warning.
And it goes on record that you’ve been warned about this. But they don’t actually give
you a fine.
Curtis: Yeah. He kept track of it for sure.

Phrase Explanations:

  1. Pulled over: Stopped by the police
  2. Tailgating: Driving very closely to the vehicle in front of you
  3. Ghost car: A police car with no lights or markings. Also known as an unmarked car.
  4. Sneaky: Doing something in a secret, unfair or not obvious way
  5. I got lucky: To have good luck unexpectedly
  6. Let you off the hook: When you get caught doing something wrong or illegal and you don’t get punished for it. ‘Let you off’ is the short way of expressing this.
  7. Warning: An official notice that you have been warned not to do something again

Listen to Smith’s Experience Here

My name is Smith and I am from Haiti. I am really happy to have signed up for Real English Conversations because it has really helped me improve my listening and speaking skills.

And thanks to the teacher, Amy Whitney, who also acts as a researcher on how to learn a foreign language more efficiently. So, thanks to her good advice and methodology about how to deeply work out my listening and how to stick with my speaking practice, even without having someone to talk to, I have been able to gradually improve my English in many ways.

While the S&P 500 is on track to conclude another stellar year of gains, those who sought to beat the index are poised to finish with a more dubious distinction. According to Lipper, 85% of all active stock mutual fund managers had been trailing their benchmarks through the end of November. In a typical year, there are nearly twice as many managers outperforming, with only around two thirds of funds struggling to catch up. Lipper says this is the worst year for active managers relative to the market in three decades.

Armistice Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1938, and remained so until 1954, when it was renamed Veterans Day in the aftermath of both World War Two and the Korean War. It is separate from Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday in May and honors servicemen and women killed in war.
Manufacturing and sectors like leisure and hospitality should keep creating jobs. America's factories drove the early part of the U.S. recovery and, although growth has slowed, they should continue to add workers selectively. After adding about 9,000 jobs a month in 2010, manufacturing has added about 16,000 jobs a month so far this year. Slowdowns in Europe, Japan and fast-growing China have hurt global trade flows. But lately, more corporate executives are realizing that making things in the U.S. has benefits over, say, China. Meanwhile, the leisure sector, including restaurants, has been a reliable source of job growth all year.[qh]

The inclusion of three turbodiesel engines this year could be considered controversial, especially as diesels remain far less popular in the U.S. than in Europe, where they tend to dominate the discussion. This is the first year in which more than two diesel-powered mills made the top 10 list and ironically two of them come from domestic automakers, including the only current full-size domestic half-ton pickup to offer one, the Ram 1500.

Wang studied computer programming while growing up in China. After college, she hoped to move to the U.S. to start her career. The next year, the Chinese Students Protection Act was passed and Wang got her master's in computer science at University of Houston. She worked at several Silicon Valley startups (and launched her own, iBizWomen.com) until September 11, 2001. The attack inspired her to create Binary Group, a technology consulting company that works with the Federal Government. Over the past 16 years, Binary has helped its clients save piles of money -- like the Army 20th Support Command, which cut $60 million over five years for its satellite communication bandwidth requirements.

You're networking – yes! But you're networking so thoroughly within your industry that word gets back to your boss. "The world is small," says Andrea Kay, career consultant and author of "This Is How To Get Your Next Job," so this kind of thing does happen. When sharing your résumé and other job-search materials with new and old professional contacts, explicitly state that your hunt is confidential, Foss says。

I felt like every time I learned something new… there was more I had to learn. To make it worse, there were so many resources available online! It was hard to find a good resource that would teach me the real life language that is used every day for the INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED level.

I am a native English speaker but I was studying Spanish on my own.  For about 14 years but I was stuck at a beginner level until I started to study the right things.

Once I discovered this technique of studying real conversations, my level in the language improved from a beginner to a confident advanced speaker quickly, without as much effort. Which is why we decided to build a website based on the most effective techniques I have personally used and I know work very well.

One of the key parts to building vocabulary and improving my listening skills was having access to good audio of real conversations and accurate transcriptions. Which is why we make sure that every one of our audio lessons has either subtitled videos or includes access to English Conversations Lessons with a PDF. 

I’d like to share a secret with you…

All you need right now to improve your English to the next level is a method and resource that focuses on the right English, real English. By learning and seeing the right words, right verbs and hearing interesting phrases that real people actually use, you are going to feel more confident speaking while advancing your English level quickly.

简言之,无叶风扇就是没有叶片的风扇。它的工作原理是先将空气吸入风扇基座内部,然后通过扇头环形上的洞将空气吹出。这款风扇据说是詹姆斯·戴森发明的,并命名为"气流倍增器"。就像可以飞行的喷气背包一样,无叶风扇被《时代周刊》评为"2009年度伟大发明"之一,同样它也不是世界上第一个无叶风扇。实际上,第一个无叶风扇于1981年被日本的东京芝区电力公司获得专利。尽管东京芝区电力公司的无叶风扇并没有用于生产制造,但詹姆斯的无叶风扇的原始设计与其设计相似,所以专利局拒绝授予詹姆斯这个专利。尽管授予东京芝区电力公司的专利已经过期,但在授予詹姆斯这项新专利之前,专利局需要他提供该设计的创新之处。詹姆斯的经理吉尔·斯密斯并没有否认这两种无叶风扇间的相似性,只是说两者间的差异在于所用"科技"不同。
