TQ 053 Rob from Canada

TQ 053 Rob from Canada Rob, 34, is married to a woman from the Philippines and is from Vancouver, Canada. He taught in Korea for many years and is now my next-door neighbor in Nanning, China. If you listen carefully you can hear that he has a slight Canadian accent. He says "out" and "about" and "been" in a different way from me. He also gives a fun imitation of a Newfoundland (eastern Canada) accent. He says, "No doubt about it", but it sounds like "No doot aboot it"! Listen as we talk about the words "Yankee" and "Canuck", interesting places in Korea and the Philippines, and suggestions for learning vocabulary words. Also listen for the sound of birds in the background. We recorded this at about 12:30 pm on a nice day, and the birds were singing outside my windows. Here are some words we use that you may not know: sibling, Baby Boom Generation, barbecue/BBQ, hockey, snowbirds, kiwis (three meanings!), steep, vertical, to carve, Buddha, statue, rice terraces.
