Vocabulary Expansion

In this episode of Walk ‘n’ Talk Level Up, you learned some new structures and new expressions! You can continue studying here by checking out the dialogue, the expressions with written explanations, and repeating all the sentences!

Dialogue:

Lisa: Hey, it’s your turn to help the kids with their homework.

Joe: Oh, no… Can you, please, help them out today? I’m kind of swamped.

Lisa: Ok, ok, I’ll do it. But you have to do it sometime. I’m starting to think that you’re avoiding this because you’re not into studying.

Joe: Ugh, it’s just that I hate mathematics. But I do have a lot of things to do, I swear.

Lisa: Yeah, right. You said the same thing last time about geography… Babe, be honest.

Joe: Ok! I hate studying, I hate math, geography, chemistry, biology… But I’ll do it for the kids.

New expressions and Vocabulary!

Swamped

This is an expression that describes the idea of having many things to do, being generally busy. Even though it expresses the same idea as the word “busy”, it is a little more intense. It’s a good addition to your vocabulary so you don’t always repeat the same word every time you want to say someone is full of things to do. Check out some more examples:

My mom can’t come today, she is really swamped.

I know I promised to help you today, but I’m really swamped with college stuff.
Jack said he was swamped with work, but I saw him at the park.

It’s also common to use “swamp”, as a verb, to say what or who is causing someone to be  overloaded with work or other activities. The structure is: swamp + [someone/something] + with + [something]:

My psychology professor is swamping me with work.

I don’t want to swamp her with new tasks.

My manager swamps me with extra reports every Friday.

<hlt>To be into<hlt>

This construction is extremely common in daily conversation. It indicates that someone is or isn’t interested in an activity or subject, that it’s something that the person enjoys or not:

Mary is into chemical engineering, so she is studying very hard.
He isn’t into this kind of book, can you recommend another one?

We went to the beach because our kids are really into building sandcastles.

This construction can also be used to say that someone is romantically interested in someone else:

I think I’m into Taylor, she is so sweet. She is also very pretty, and kind.

Jane said that Tim is into Ruby! I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.

School subjects

•Mathematics (Math)

• Calculus
• Science
• Chemistry
• Biology
• Physics
• Social studies

Listen to this episode as many times as you wish, and follow it up with these extra concepts and examples. That way, you’ll be able to improve your English even more and memorize what you’ve learned!
