First of all, a big “Thanks” to all of you who sent me those nice support messages while I was at the conference in Manchester last week! You guys really made my week! Thanks 🙂
Now, today’s SBFG video–it’s all about wine vocabulary!
If you find it easier to talk about professional topics than everyday life subjects, today’s video will help you enrich your vocabulary and become more comfortable in everyday’s conversations!
When you go out to the restaurant with American colleagues, they will ask you to choose a good French wine. A wine that demonstrates all the know-how of France, which impresses the ‘Ricains’. You too can impress them with your English wine vocabulary!
No need to be a fine connoisseur. Your basic wine culture puts you already far ahead of most Americans, I assure you! Even if the Americans make very good Californian wines, they think that a California Champagne can exist. If, if … The subject even provoked a small controversy at the inauguration of Obama in January 2013!
Pssss! Here’s a bonus, just for you! CLICK HERE to get a “Wine Vocabulary Cheat Sheet” (https://gallery.mailchimp.com/b0b3e72eb4d6041d9fc69dfbd/files/Wine_vocabulary_sheet.pdf) that recaps the main vocab from today’s video!
To broaden your vocabulary and be more at ease with your guests, watch “Talking About Wine in English”
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: If you live in the Grenoble region, come to “The Wine is Mine” tasting in English and French of Chardonnay wines (a grape specially appreciated by the Americans!) It’s on April 28th at 7pm!
I hope to see you there!
