Today I’d like to tell you about our newsletter. We decided that it would be a good idea to send a weekly update of what was in the show the previous week.
I think this will be good for people who watch the show in batches, or for people who don’t have time to watch every show, but want to keep up to date and maybe watch the shows that are about something they’re particularly interested in.
It will also help people who are looking for a show that they want to watch again. You can look through the list of shows in the newsletter and hopefully find what you’re looking for.
Also, if we have any news - like, we’re taking a break or something like that – then I’ll put that at the start of the newsletter, so you can keep up to date with what’s going on even if you miss a few shows.
So please go to thedailyenglishshow.com and sign up for that. You can see on the left hand corner, under the eyes, it says tdes weekly update. Just write your name and email address and click on subscribe and then go to your email and confirm your subscription and that’s it.
There’s an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter so you can easily unsubscribe at any time if you decide you’re not interested in receiving it anymore.
And apologies to the people who signed up for the newsletter last month. At first we were using a different newsletter service, but then I discovered it wasn’t very good, so we changed to a new service. So those people will have to sign up again. I’m sorry about that, but it only takes a few seconds, so hopefully you won’t mind too much.
According to his website, the prime minister of New Zealand is now on a ten day trip to cement New Zealand's strong relations with Asia. This morning he talked to a group of New Zealand businesspeople in Seoul. He talked about rugby. He said he’d decided that if New Zealand didn’t win the World Cup next year he might consider tasering the captain.
And that was Stick News for Monday the 5th of July. Kia ora.
Michael When did you see the All Whites coach at the airport? オール・ホワイツの監督を空港で出迎えたのはいつ？
Sarah It was on Friday. 金曜日。
Michael Where there lots of people there? 大勢集まっていた？
Sarah No. There weren’t. There were two fans. Me and this little boy with an All Whites flag. いいえ。ファンは二人だけ。私とオール・ホワイツの旗を持っていた男の子。
Michael Really? Only two?! That’s pretty sad. 本当？たったの二人？！それってちょっと悲しいね。
Sarah Yeah, there were lots of media there though. But I don’t think people actually knew when the flight was coming in, because I don’t think the papers published it. I couldn’t find it, so I emailed, ah, NZ football to ask. うん、メディアは多くいたけどね。でもNZ国民は到着の飛行機を知らされていなかったんじゃないかな。新聞に載っていなかったから私、NZサッカー協会にメールして訊きました。
Michael And they told you? で、教えてもらえた？
Sarah Yeah, they replied straight away. はい、即返事がありました。
Michael What’s Ricki Herbert like? Did you talk to him? 監督はどんな様子でしたか？直接話しましたか？
Sarah No, I just got my photo taken with him. But, he seems really nice. いいえ、一緒に写真を撮っただけ。けどとても感じのいい人でした。
