In this Simplified Speech episode, Andrew and Kassy have a blast talking about their favourite childhood games. Tune in to hear about childhood classics like tag, hide-and-seek, and much more. Hey there, friends, welcome back to Culips. This is a Simplified Speech episode. If you’re wondering what that is, well, Simplified Speech is the Culips series where we have totally natural English conversations but we slow down our speech just a little bit. And we hope that by listening to the series, you can improve your English listening skills and become a fluent English listener. Today, I am joined by my cohost, Kassy. Kassy, hello.

We have a fun one today. Our topic for today is childhood games. Games that we played when we were kids. And this episode was actually suggested to us by one of our listeners.
