Helloooo everyone out there,

How are you all doing?

Welcome back again to English Harmony and a new of chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn something new every day with context and examples, and so will you today.

So without wasting even a single second, let’s get down to the business and read the given context:

Context (First day at college)

Josh (moving to a table with his coffee): Can I sit here?
Emma: Yeah, of course.
Josh: So it’s your first day, how are you feeling about this new place?
Emma: I think it’s nice. But as I am a bit shy, so getting along with people takes me some time.
Josh: Oh, I see that. I am sorry, but you didn’t mention your name. Your name, please?
Emma: My name is Emma Clarke, and you?
Josh: I am Joseph Watson aka Josh.
Emma: Great! Nice to meet you, Josh.
Josh: Same here! So you must have scored quite well in your high school, I mean getting admission in this college is not easy.
Emma: I was an average student at my school times. It’s because of sports quota why I have been admitted to this college.
Josh: What a small world! I also got admission from sports quota.
Emma: Oh really! What do you play then?
Josh: Tennis, and you?
Emma: Me too. Why don’t you come to practice today at 4:00 pm?
Josh: Alright. See you then at 4:00 pm sharp at the sports complex.
Emma: Done! Bye-bye.
Josh: Bye.

Expression-What a small world!

Explanation– People often use this expression in reaction to an unexpected coincidence.

It’s a small world!” is also a phrase that can be used instead of “What a small world”. Let’s say you meet a person who is from the same university where you graduated from, or you and your friend decide to go to a common place without even telling each other, these are situations where you want to use this phrase, as it’s a coincidence that same things happened unexpectedly.

So how did find today’s chapter?

Did you like it?

I hope today’s lesson added some new vocabulary to your arsenal of active vocabulary which will be definitely useful in your daily life. Make sure you read this article thoroughly and practice it with your own examples so as they become your second nature.

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.
