#172 Getting Back to Normal after the Pandemic

Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.


Hi, everyone! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of My mission is to help you speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks.

Today let’s talk about how the lockdown has affected the way we interact with other people.

Are we ready to get back to normal after the pandemic?

And with a point of view lesson, you will learn grammar in context without memorizing any boring rules. I’ll tell you a story

twice from different grammar points. I can change the tense or the person. And like that, you will learn grammar in context.

After a year of living practically on the couch

eating takeout while watching series on Netflix, maybe you should consider whether you’re turning into a hermit.

Takeout is prepared food packaged to be consumed away from its place of sale.

So, what’s a hermit?

hermit retires from society and lives in solitude, usually for religious reasons.

And after a year without leaving the house, many people are in danger of becoming hermits.

Although when someone lives alone and deliberately avoids other people, we call that person a recluse.

I’ve always been an extrovert. But being stuck at home for so long, with no contact other than my family, is becoming a bit of an issue.

And you know, I was certain that extroverted people would have a tough time during the lockdown. But it turns out that even people who were never at home are finding any excuse not to leave the house.

It seems that we have adjusted to this new lifestyle, and it’s going to be hard to get back to normal.

And how about getting back to work?

In my opinion, the pandemic killed the traditional workplace, and I am curious how companies will deal with this situation.

And I have a feeling that remote work can be mutually beneficial. Because according to one study, telecommuters work 1.4 days more per month, and that’s more than three additional workweeks per year. 

And let’s face it, while working in the office has some advantages, like meeting new people, very few employees want to go back to the office.

What about you?

How do you feel about all this? Do you want to get back to the office, or do you prefer to stay at home and work remotely?
