#067 English speaking practice - Superstitions

Hello everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. I want to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

Today I’ll talk about superstitions, and you’ll practice your speaking with a mini-story.

By the way, thank you so much for listening wherever you are. If you can, please write a comment on iTunes. That's how you help me reach more people.

Ok! Let’s start!

Bad luck, good luck...Superstition is something that people think can give good or bad luck. And all over the world, there are superstitious people.

However, not everyone is superstitious, and some think it's silly. So they don't believe in anything. I'm gonna comment on some of the most common superstitions I know:

-1) Finger crossing: If you cross your fingers, in theory, you avoid bad luck. For example: "I'm going to cross my fingers to win the lottery.”
- 2) Touching or knocking on wood: This is also quite common. The expression "to touch wood" means that you don't want something bad to happen. For example.
“My friend Laura can't find a job.”
"Well, touch wood. I need to find a job soon.”
