“turn” = become a year older
“Our youngest daughter is going to turn 16 this week, and we’re all excited to celebrate her special day.”
“mooch off of someone” = expect someone to pay your expenses
“Hey, now that you’ve turned 25, don’t you think it’s time to stop mooching off of mom and dad?“
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Do the vocabulary quizzes with the words from the conversation for more practice:
Share a story about one of your favorite birthdays. How did you celebrate the day, and what made it special? Did you eat any special foods? What presents did you receive? Are there any unique birthday traditions and customs in your family or culture?
Although everyone has a birthday once a year, the way that we celebrate this day is often different from person to person, from family to family, and from culture to culture. Use the Internet to learn about different birthday traditions from two cultures other than you own and report on how these customs are similar or different than your own
