Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.
Today I read a diary entry on lang-8
and it was the first time that this person had written on the site.
And they wrote
I knew this site yesterday and liked it immediately.
I would replace know in that sentence with find out about.
I found out about this site yesterday.
There are other ways you could say it as well, like discovered or came across.
The nuance is slightly different with each word. Came across sounds to me more like you found the site yourself while you were searching online, but found out about sounds more like someone told you about the site.
So I thought I’d see if I could find any other words ending in –arah, like my name Sarah.
And I found these four words.
And I don’t know what any of them mean or how to pronounce any of them.
On Monday a British couple got married in a mud pool in Rotorua.
The ceremony lasted 6 minutes and ended in the exchange of rings and the smothering of mud.
And that was Stick News for Wednesday 17 of March.

Word of the Day
Today’s word is muster.
I took this photo on the ferry to Great Barrier Island.
It says starboard muster point and muster station.
Starboard is the right side of the boat, when you’re facing forward.
And to muster means to gather. So it’s a meeting place – maybe for if there’s an emergency or something. I’m not sure.
conversations with sarah
It looked quite small
Did you see the St Patrick’s Day parade?
Yeah. We went up the top of the Sky Tower
to watch it.スカイタワーの展望台から見たよ。
It was in Queen Street, wasn’t it?
How was it?
It looked quite small.
Well, of course it looked small, you were at the top of the tower!
Yeah, true. No, I mean, it wasn’t very long. There weren’t many groups in it like the Santa parade.
