558 – Chilly, Cool, & Cool Idioms

MichaelADIdioms, Slang

Hey guys it’s Michael here from Happy English and I help people speak English better.

I went to the grocery store this weekend and there were lots of pumpkins for sale. It’s really the fall, isn’t it. Fall. Autumn? Fall? Last week, one of my students asked me about the difference between the words fall and autumn. Basically, both words mean the third season of the year, but in American English, fall is more conversational than the word autumn. That’s all! And no matter what you call it, make sure you keep those masks up and be sure to social distance, because fall or autumn, it’s still corona season.

But the weather is certainly cool and that brings us to today’s English point. Cool. Chilly. Today we’re going to have a look at both of these words, and some slang and idioms that use cool and chill. Are you ready? Let’s check it 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.
