Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.
As you may know, we made a video for a competition.
I was really happy to finally find a video competition that we could actually enter. America has a lot of video competitions but they’re usually only for people who live in America.
This competition was run by a company called Billi Tees
They are a NZ T-shirt store, and I found them online when I was in Japan and I bought this T-shirt.
For the competition you had to make a video which included the line If it’s Kiwi, it’s good and included Billi Tees.
So we made a video trying to include as many Kiwi things as possible, what’s known as Kiwiana
I was also planning to try and make something out of number 8 wire
, which is famous in New Zealand, so I went to PlaceMakers
, which is just down the road and I asked them if they sold number 8 wire. But they only sold it in some huge quantity, so I gave up on that idea.
Anyway, if you’d like to help us win this competition, then please follow the link
and go and vote for us. To vote you have to click on discussion
, under the video, and then, I love it
And then you can leave a comment under the video saying that it’s the greatest video you’ve ever seen.STICK NEWS
Kia ora in Stick News today, the managing director of Chile’s mint has been fired over a series of issues including thousands of coins being sent into circulation with the name of the country spelt incorrectly
In 2008 thousands of coins were made in Chile with a spelling mistake.
The name of the country was spelt wrong.
Apparently, the mistake went unnoticed until a collector rang the mint at the end of last year.
Several employees, including the general manager, have been fired.
And that was Stick News for Monday the 15th of February.

What’s the prize?
Some air tickets.
To somewhere in New Zealand, you can choose.
Where would you go?
Well, New Zealand’s not very big … so it would a waste to go somewhere close. I thought maybe Queenstown.
Isn’t that in Australia?
No, that’s Queensland
is at the bottom of New Zealand.オーストラリアのはクイーンズランド。クイーンズタウンはニュージーランドの南にあります。
What’s down there?
They have some ski fields, so I thought maybe I could go down in winter and do a bit of snowboarding and make a video of the trip.
Cool, I’m looking forward to seeing the video!
Yeah, well, we have to win the competition first …
