INTRODUCTION
John: Expressions Related to Food
John: Hi everyone, and welcome back to EnglishClass101.com. I'm John.
Sydney: And I'm Sydney!
John: This is Must-Know American Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 13. In this lesson, you'll learn expressions related to food.
John: Don't worry! These expressions are not going to increase your appetite!
SLANG EXPRESSIONS
John: The expressions you will be learning in this lesson are:
Sydney: to pig out
Sydney: to hit the spot
Sydney: I'm stuffed
Sydney: delish
John: Sydney, what's our first expression?
Sydney: to pig out
John: meaning "to eat a lot, to overindulge."
Sydney: [SLOW] to pig out [NORMAL] to pig out
John: Listeners, please repeat.
Sydney: to pig out
[pause - 5 sec.]
John: In the US, pigs are known for eating everything and as much as possible. For that reason, if you "pig out," that means you're eating a lot.
Sydney: This phrase is used by everyone. It can be offensive if you're accusing someone of being a glutton, but is usually friendly.
John: Now let's hear an example sentence.
Sydney: [NORMAL] "I shouldn't have pigged out. Now I can't move." [SLOW] "I shouldn't have pigged out. Now I can't move."
Sydney: [NORMAL] "I shouldn't have pigged out. Now I can't move."
John: Okay, what's the next expression?
Sydney: to hit the spot
John: meaning "to satisfy."
Sydney: [SLOW] to hit the spot [NORMAL] to hit the spot
John: Listeners, please repeat.
Sydney: to hit the spot
[pause - 5 sec.]
John: If something "hits the spot," that means it was satisfying and just what you needed. It is most commonly used when talking about food.
John: Now let's hear an example sentence.
Sydney: [NORMAL] "Yum, that hit the spot." [SLOW] "Yum, that hit the spot."
Sydney: [NORMAL] "Yum, that hit the spot."
John: Okay, what's our next expression?
Sydney: I'm stuffed
John: meaning "to feel extremely full after eating."
Sydney: [SLOW] I'm stuffed [NORMAL] I'm stuffed
John: Listeners, please repeat.
Sydney: I'm stuffed
[pause - 5 sec.]
John: "I'm stuffed," is an expression one uses after they've eaten a big meal and they feel like they just can't eat anymore. This differs slightly from the expression, "I'm full," which is considered to be one level down from "stuffed."
Sydney: If your mom made a great dinner and you ate as much as you could, you could say to her, "Mom, I'm stuffed!"
John: Now let's hear an example sentence.
Sydney: [NORMAL] I'd love another slice of pie, but I'm stuffed. [SLOW] I'd love another slice of pie, but I'm stuffed.
