Hi, everyone. Here we are again with another "Chats with Shana" episode. Today, we’ll talk about my family’s trip to the snow this past week and hopefully within the chat, I’ll teach a lot of cool snow-related vocabulary. For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, it might seem a bit strange to talk about cold weather, snow and skiing, especially when it’s midsummer and you’re spending your days on the beach in the sun. But you can always save this episode and last week’s episode…and maybe next week’s episode for later. But anyway, before we jump into this sort of retelling of our snow trip, I’d like to correct a very blatant contradiction I made in Episode #29. A listener pointed this out to me and I hadn’t even realized the mistake before now. In the recording I said, I’d been very adamant, very uncertain, very hesitant about flying on an airplane with my daughter Julia. This statement is bad because it sounds as if adamant is a synonym of hesitant or uncertain, and it is not. Adamant and uncertain are opposites. They’re antonyms.
