Hey everyone, I’m Teacher Tiffani and I want to thank you so much for joining me for another episode of the Speak English with Tiffani podcast. In today’s lesson we are going to listen to one English dialogue and learn 2 new English Vocabulary Words.

DIALOGUE

Ok, let’s begin with the dialogue:

Recently there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the presidential elections. However, yesterday I read an article in the newspaper that was trying to dispel any doubts people have about the new presidential candidate. It said that he has been working in diverse communities for years, trying to make our country a better place to live in. After reading the article, my opinion of him changed a little.

Recently there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the presidential elections. However, yesterday I read an article in the newspaper that was trying to dispel any doubts people have about the new presidential candidate. It said that he has been working in diverse communities for years, trying to make our country a better place to live in. After reading the article, my opinion of him changed a little.

Ok great, now let’s go over the two new vocabulary words that were in the dialogue.

FIRST VOCABULARY WORD

The first vocabulary word was…

“Dispel” (repeat)

Now, repeat after me…
“Dispel” (repeat twice)

Ok, now let’s say it at a normal pace…
“Dispel” (repeat twice)

This vocabulary word means to remove fears, doubts, or false ideas, usually by proving them wrong or unnecessary.


EXAMPLES

So, let’s look at five examples using this vocabulary word.

The first example is…

“We need to dispel the myths and establish real facts.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]

[Now, this time we will go at a more natural pace and I want you to try to follow me]

The second example is…

The third example is…

The fourth example is…
