Head to the Beach

Head to the Beach

Date: Jul 30 2021

Intro

1. Learn Vocabulary - Learn some new vocabulary before you start the lesson.

2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

When someone asks you if you want to head somewhere, they are asking you if you want to go somewhere. It’s kind of a weird thing about our language, one of our idioms. I am so happy that we happened to have this conversation during Head Week because it fits perfectly into our theme! Let’s attack this lesson, head on!

Dialog

1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Steph:  Oh. That sounds like fun! Which beach do you wanna head to?

Sara:  I was thinking maybe, um, Seaside.

Steph:  That would be cool. I like it there!

Sara:  Yeah. They have really cool games and stuff that we could play. And we could play volleyball on the beach, and.

Steph:  Yeah. That would be fun. Don’t they have a carousel there?

Sara:  I think so. Yeah. I think we could probably ride the carousel.

Steph:  Ooh, can we eat cotton candy, too?

Sara:  Totally. We can eat hot dogs and cotton candy and caramel apples and popcorn. It’ll be great!

Steph:  Ooh ooh. What about elephant ears?

Sara:  Yeah. We can definitely have elephant ears.

Steph:  Totally. I’m there.

Yeah. I totally love heading to the beach on the weekend. My friend used to call me up and ask if I wanted to go to the coast spontaneously. Because Portland is really close to the beach, we could get there and back in one day. My favorite things to do at the coast are walk on the beach, eat clam chowder and collect seashells. What do you like to do at the beach?

Heading to the beach is interesting. In Egypt there is something to eat call Freska, it is sweet paper-thin wafer, it is so yummy. Also the children play at the beach and build mud castles

Heading to beach is a good option to kill time for me as I love watching kids creating mud castles, kids surprised with the way how waves get intensified and personally, I love eating roasted corn at beaches.

To kick off, I’d say that it could be a great deal to head to the beach in winter.


Only a few people there, and the sound of waves is so therapeutic..

Hi there! What is the difference between on the beach and at the beach? Does it sound correct if someone asks “What do you like to do on the beach?”

I love heading to the seaside in summer, eating ice cream, collecting seashells and walking in fresh air.
