Episode #10 of the course English vocabulary – in the morning (B2) by Kasia Sielicka, PhD


Susan was eating the muffins and thinking about John. He was definitely a nice man! They had hit it off immediately, and they seemed to be getting on like a house on fire—although, truth be told, they had only known each other for a few minutes.

“John,” she asked. “Do you believe in love at first sight?”

“Wh- what?” John almost choked on his muffin. The question took him completely by surprise.

“Oh, you know, a match made in heaven and that kind of stuff.”

“Ah… well… I never really thought about that, to be honest.” John seemed really embarrassed!

“Argh,” thought Susan, “‘I guess I should wait a little with those three little words. But I’m afraid I have fallen for John really quickly, and I’m already head over heels in love!”


Key words

If you hit it off with somebody, you start liking them from the moment you first meet.

If you get on like a house on fire, you have a very good relationship with somebody. You have a great time together!

Love at first sight is when you start loving a person the moment you first meet them. It’s so romantic!

A match made in heaven is a relationship when two people are very happy together.

Those three little words = “I love you.”

If you fall for somebody, you start to love them.

If you are head over heels in love, you are very much in love. Yay!


Bonus words

When you say “truth be told,” you say what the situation is really like.

If you choke on food, the food falls into the wrong hole and you can’t breathe.

When something takes you by surprise, you are really surprised by it.


This is the end of the course! If you liked the adventures of Susan, please let me know and I might work on Season 2!

In the meantime, keep improving your English vocabulary! Choose a method that works well for you—everyone has a different learning style! My favorite methods include listening to pop songs and watching sitcoms.
