In this American English pronunciation video, we’re not going to study American English pronunciation. But I am going to invite you to join me at Thanksgiving dinner this year.
I’m making this video on my phone to invite you to pull out your phone, or your tablet, and join me in two days for Thanksgiving dinner. The, this upcoming Thursday is Thanksgiving. It’s a major holiday in the United States. It’s one of my favorites, it’s maybe my favorite. Um, traditional food, time with family. Low stress. You don’t have to exchange gifts. And so, I’m going to try something new.
I’m going to try an app called Periscope. A lot of people know it and use it. I’m new to it. But it allows you to do a live video broadcast. And people who are watching can ask questions. So I thought Thanksgiving could be a great time to do this. I’ve thought that Periscope might be a good way to share what’s going on in my life. Share some American culture. And to have live back-and-forth with you, and answer your questions.
So, it’s just an experiment. Let’s try it and see. Periscope is a free app. It costs nothing to download it or to follow me or to watch the live feeds. I think the only thing you have to know is that my username is Rachels_English. And, I’m planning on doing a couple different broadcasts on Thanksgiving Day. Um, one that is going to be more question-and-answer. And one that’s going to be more me showing you the meal that we’re having. The meal is really the centerpiece of the holiday. And we have traditional foods that are served every year at the meal. Um, like a turkey.
So, it’s going to be really fun. I’m excited to share it with you. This year I’m going to my husband’s family, about an hour and a half away. And, they’re a large family and they’re very loud, happy people, so it’s going to be very fun and exciting. And I’m really looking forward to sharing this moment with you. And to hearing what your questions are. Um, as I said, this is an experiment. I’ve never done it before. And I hope that it’s fun and exciting, and I hope that you participate by watching the feed and asking a couple of questions. So, in two days, pull out your phone. If you follow me, I think you should get a notification when I start a live feed. But also, I’ll post to Facebook. “Hey, I’m going to start in 10 minutes” or whatever, so that you know when to catch me. I also think that if you follow me on Periscope, you’ll be able to watch the videos that I make at Thanksgiving for 24 hours. So you don’t have to be there live to see the video, I don’t think.
Ok guys. This is going to be fun. I’m looking forward to a new Periscope adventure with you. And I will see you in two days.
