PODCAST-ENGLISH-TREE-IDIOMS

Hey guys it’s Michael here from happy English and it’s time for another podcast English lesson. Well, it’s the middle of December and Christmas is right around the corner. In my family we actually have two big holidays this month, my mom’s birthday and Christmas. And this month my mom is going to turn 90 years old. 90! That’s pretty amazing, right?
Next Wednesday December 18 I’m going to be doing my usual YouTube live English lesson and I’ve convinced my mom come on camera and join me. So it’s going to be at 9:15 AM New York time, which is 3:15 PM in Europe, and about 11:15 PM in Tokyo. If you have time, why not swing by and wish her a happy birthday.

And speaking of Christmas, the Christmas tree is one of the ways that we decorate our house. So thinking about trees, for today’s English lesson, we’re going to take a look at four idioms that have the word tree. Are you ready? Let’s check ‘em out

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details.
