πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈTodd: So, you were saying you went to Laos, you went to Thailand, by any chance did you go to Malaysia?

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦Phil: Yeah, I spent, I spent some time in Malaysia. The first stop, we went there from Singapore, just taking a bus and we ended up in Malacca. Stayed about five days in Malacca. Malacca's nice. There's a lot of history there. We learned a lot about the colinization of Malacca, the Portuguese and then the Dutch, and then the English and then the Japanese, and, yeah, it was a really interesting place. There was old St. Peter's Church. There's several Mosques. It's a good place to spend for a few days. From there we went to Kuala Lumpur. We didn't really spend much time in Kuala Lumpur. We had spent a week in Singapore and were pretty tired of cities. so we only spent I believe two or three days in Kuala Lumpur, just visits from shopping malls, the KLCC, the Petronas Towers, and yeah, that's basically what we did in KL, and then we went to the Cameron Highlands, and if you like hiking, the Cameron Highlands is a great place for you. I don't know, they might have 16, 17 different marked trails. There's a whole lot of unmarked trails. We spent a month there. I think I only went on only six hikes maybe during that month but once again we were being lazy, and yeah, if you're an avid hiker then you're certainly going to enjoy the Cameron Highlands.

Todd: Yeah, actually, I did the hike in the Cameron Highland once, and foolishly I started my hike at about 4 o'clock and I thought I could make the loop of the trail at the time, and the sun started to go down, and I was in the jungle, and I was worried about getting back, and I just made it back, but I was pretty scared for awhile.

Phil: You were lucky. Some people don't make it back.

Todd: Really?

Phil: Well, Jim Thompson. Maybe you've heard of him.

Todd: Yeah, actually, why don't you tell the people about Jim Thompson?

Phil: Jim Thompson was a trader. I think he was maybe based in Hong Kong, but I'm not sure. Maybe it was based in Malaysia. He went hiking. I believe it was 1967, in the Cameron Highlands, and no one has seen him since. He's just vanished from the face of the earth. So, be careful if you go hiking there. Watch your step.

πŸ” #vocabulary


β–ͺ️By any chance

By any chance did you go to Malaysia?

We use the phrase 'by any chance' when we are asking if something is true or possible, but we don't really expect the answer to be yes. Notice the following:

▫️You don't, by any chance, have an extra umbrella I could borrow?

▫️Can you take care of my daughter on Friday night, by any chance?


β–ͺ️Colonize

We learned about the colonization of Malaysia.

To 'colonize' a place is to establish a colony or area to live there. Colonization happened frequently from the 1600s until the 1800s, when countries were exploring new lands and making towns in the new places. Usually this involved conquering the local people. Notice the following:

▫️Teaching people about religion was part of the colonization process.

▫️They planned to colonize the new territory.


β–ͺ️Make it back

I just made it back.

The phrase 'make it back' means to return from another place but the return trip was either long or difficult. Notice the following:

▫️How did you make it back after your car stopped working.

▫️Sorry. I'm not going to make it back in time for our meeting.


β–ͺ️Face of the earth

Jim Thompson vanished from the face of the earth.

If someone falls off 'the face of the earth' he has disappeared and you don't see or communicate with him anymore. The face of the earth is literally the ground we stand on, but we usually use to talk about all the parts of Earth in a general sense. Notice the following:

▫️Where have you been? I thought you had fallen off the face of the earth.

▫️It feels like all the good people have disappeared from the face of the earth.


β–ͺ️Watch your step

Be careful if you go hiking. Watch your step.

Literally, 'watch your step' means be careful where you put your feet, but we use this phrase to tell someone to be careful. Notice the following:

▫️When you start a new job it is always important to watch your step until you figure out the rules.

▫️Watch your step when you work with her. She has a habit of not telling the truth.

βœ… English Poetry: Learn about THE SONNET
Learn about a form of poetry called the sonnet. Though poetry can be a bit complex because of all its rules, those very rules can produce some interesting and beautiful texts. The sonnet started in Italy in the 13th century, so the first sonnets were in Italian. We started seeing English sonnets in England in the 16th century. In this lesson, I will teach you more about the history of the sonnet, and then, I will show you an example written by Shakespeare. This is a chance to add to your vocabulary and to learn something about an aspect of English literature. After watching, you can take a look at some of my other poetry lessons.
