Catch Word#91 – Other languages in English

In this episode, we’re doing something a bit different: We’re looking at expressions we use in English that aren’t actually English! English speakers often use certain words from other languages as if they were English. Here, we choose just four, from German, Spanish, French, and Japanese. If you speak any of those languages, please don’t be offended by our pronunciations!

Expressions included in the Study Guide

  • Achoo
  • Gesundheit
  • (God) bless you
  • Mi casa es su casa
  • Make yourself at home
  • Cupboards
  • Barbecue
  • Déjà vu
  • Sayonara
