Hi, everyone! Welcome back to this week’s episode. For today, we’ve got a 5-minute English episode and it’s all about cleaning. Cleaning is an activity that many of us dread, but it often comes up in small talk, especially when asking about someone’s day. Without a doubt, this is going to be pretty useful, at least I have a feeling it will be.

As usual, the goal for this 5-minute episode is to teach you the vocabulary, phrasal verbs and collocations needed to have a discussion about this topic. I call this fluency one topic at a time.

Recently, one of my students asked me what I mean by fluency. Fluency is a term that is interpreted differently by pretty much everyone. So for me, fluency in a specific topic is when you’re able to talk freely and comfortably, when you aren’t looking for words or translating from your native language. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to know every vocabulary word in the dictionary about that topic, but you know the essentials and are able to use them without doubting yourself.
