An interview with Harp


If you’ve been listening to Culips for a little while, you’ve already started to get to know the Culips hosts, Harp and Maura. And you’ll also know that in our Chatterbox episodes, sometimes we interview people. So here’s an interview with Harp, where she tells us about her life growing up and what she’s up to now. Along the way, she also drops a few expressions for you.

Maura Harp

Maura: So, what did you study at university?
Harp: I studied political science.
Maura: So does that mean you wanted to become a politician?
Harp: I was actually thinking more of becoming a lawyer. And so it’s a really common route to go from political science into law. And I love politics. Even now, I read the news a lot, I’m always following what’s going on politically in Canada, the US, and even internationally.
Maura: So, you grew up in Fort St. John, and then you lived in Edmonton, and then you decided to travel and move around. Where is the first place that you went?
Harp: Well, you know, it’s funny, because I had travelled quite a bit in Canada, and even the US, when I was growing up, but I hadn’t really left North America until I decided, with a bang, to move to South Korea for a year.
Maura: Wow! So, tell us about that experience.

Expressions from this episode included in the Learning Materials:

To tune in To keep an ear out for something
When I say…, I mean… Fort St. John
Out west A small-town feel
With a bang To not speak a word of English
A built-in babysitter To sink or swim
A cool vibe A day job
To shoot the breeze That’s because you like to shoot the breeze
