One such development is 60 Water Street in Dumbo, a 290-unit rental with a 24-hour concierge and a roof deck offering Manhattan views. Leasing begins next month, with rent for a two-bedroom starting at a jaw-dropping $6,018 a month. “People want that condo-like living, even though they’re renting and not owning,” said Jodi Ann Stasse, the managing director of new developments for Citi Habitats.

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

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.

Why has nobody taught you how to study a English Conversation before?

That was in line with last month’s manufacturing PMIs, which showed an uptick in sector activity,
To start with, a year before the first iPhone was released, LG had introduced a full touchscreen phone. Even that was not the first, though. The world's first touchscreen phone was IBM's Simon, which was released in 1992. And touchscreen technology even predates the Simon. The first touchscreen device was a tablet made by E.A. Johnson in 1965 that was used by air traffic controllers until 1995. Bent Stumpe and Frank Beck made the first capacitive touchscreen in the early '70s. Unlike Johnson's tablet, it could not be pressed with the fingers. Instead, it required a stylus. In 1971, Samuel Hurst developed the first resistive touchscreen, which he called the "elograph." It responded to the fingers as well as a stylus. In 1985, HP invented the world's first touchscreen computer, called the HP-150. In 1993, Apple also released its first touchscreen device—the Newton Personal Digital Assistant. The product was a flop, recording low sales.
It’s ironic that in a country as populous as China, a meme about loneliness would be so popular. This seemingly irrational line has been repeated in every possible permutation, on every possible occasion, e.g. “What big brother is reading not a book, but loneliness.”

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.

Why waste your time trying to memorize words that you are never going to use during English conversations? I mean, it’s a boring and useless technique that will not help your ability to communicate with real English in the real world.
