Lesson Transcript

Welcome back to Weekly Words. My name is Alisha, and this week we are going to talk about words that end with X.
First is ‘equinox’.
There are two equinoxes per year. There is a fall equinox, and a spring Equinox. It's the days where the day time and the night time are of equal length. In a sentence, “You having a party for the equinox this year?”“Today is the spring equinox. Did you know that?” Okay, anyway.
Onward! Next is ‘jinx’.
We can use this as a noun or as a verb. A jinx is something—it's a curse really—something that brings somebody bad luck. In North America, maybe in your country as well, when kids say something at exactly the time, in exactly the same words, one or both of them will often yell, “Jinx!”And then they'll sometimes say, “You can't talk until I say your name.”‘To jinx’ can also be used as a verb to curse somebody. “The witch jinxed me, and now I am a werewolf.” I don't know… the more you know.
Okay. ‘Fox’.
Fox is another word. Great fox. Fox is a mammal, usually a reddish brown color, lives in forests. In some cultures it's associated with trickery, has a big bushy tail, often very cute, has a red belly sometimes. Fox facts. Fox! In a sentence, “My favorite animal is the fox.”“What does the fox say?”
Climax is common in movies or in books.
It's whatever the most intense scene in the movie is, the most intense scene in the book is. Something where everything comes to a peak and it has the most action, the most drama in a movie, whatever. The most intense point of something is the climax. In a sentence, “The climax of the movie was the most exciting part.” “What movie has the best climax that I remember? Obviously The Lord of the Rings. Yeah, it was the last one. The Return of the Kings, like that scene where Legolas rides the elephant, you know?”
‘Wax’.
Life's most important substance. Wax. I'm imagining surf boards. Surfers will put it on their surf board to help their board glide through water. You can put it on your car to make your car look a lot shinier. There's also earwax. A little bit gross. It's the, kind of, I don't even know, gross stuff that gets inside your ears if you don't clean them well enough. Wax, yeah. In a sentence, “Wax your car to make it shiny.”
And that's the end of words that end with X, give them a try, they're interesting. Thanks very much for joining us this week, we will see you again soon for more fun stuff. Bye! Excellent, we learned something.
