Hey everybody out there,

How you all doing today?

Learning idioms and expressions can be one of the fastest ways to improve your spoken English and vocabulary, but when it comes to informal conversation, slangs play a vital role in getting along with people in such situations. It is the reason I thought, why not cover an informal context in the upcoming chapter?

So, welcome back yet again to another 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.

Are you excited?

Me too!

So without further ado, let’s get down to the business and see today’s context:


John: Hey Brie, are you coming today?

Brie: Where?

John: To Jonathan’s party. Didn’t he invite you?

Brie: Oh, sorry! Of course, he did, but I was so busy with my work that it completely slipped my mind (means she forgot).  Thanks for reminding me, by the way.

John: It’s alright. Why don’t we go along? What do you say?

Brie: That’s great! I would love to. I just can’t tell how amped I am for tonight.

John: So am I, Brie. I will then pick you up at 8:00 pm sharp. Be ready.

Brie: Alright, I will get ready on time.

(At The Party)

Brie: Did you congratulate Jonathan on his promotion?

John: Yeah, I already did that in the office. He got what he deserved. He is really a hard-working man.

Brie: He is such a looker, I mean he is so ripped. That’s what a real man looks like. Isn’t he so perfect?

John: Yeah, he is great! Not every man has that much potential to manage it all.

(At midnight)

Brie: The party was fun! Isn’t it?

John: It really was.

Brie: I am beat now. I have to submit the assignments tomorrow early in the morning. How about we leave now?

John: Yeah, it’s already too late. Let’s go!

So when was the last time you went to a party?

Were you beat if you stayed after 2:00 am?

I guess not.

Vocabulary to Acquire Today

Meaning- if you’re amped about something, you’re super excited or you can’t wait for something to happen.
Example- I am so amped for Camilla’s show tonight. It will be so much fun.

Meaning- People often use this slang for those they think are good looking. They’ll probably never say it to your face, but you could hear it from someone else.
A: Bella is such a looker. Don’t you think so?
B: Yeah, she is good, but I have no interest in her.

Meaning- If a person is ripped, it means they have great muscles and body, probably because they work out a lot in the gym, or they are extremely into sports.
Example- Steven is so ripped. He must be working out really hard to maintain such a physique.

Meaning- If someone says ‘I’m beat’, it means he or she is very tired or exhausted.
Example- I am beat now. I will directly go to my bed and sleep, else I won’t be able to play in the next matches.

By the way, do you work out to get ripped?

Frankly speaking, yesterday I was beaten after all the work, but it’s your love and support that amped me to write this article.

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

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.

Take care and?
