  • Feifei: Hello and welcome to The English We Speak.

  • You are Rob

  • Rob: And you are Feifei. Hello!

  • Feifei: So another year over, Rob.

  • Rob: Yes and what a year it's beenand there's

  • just one more thing to do before the next

  • year begins. Party!

  • Feifei: Yes, New Year means party season

  • so are you going to a party, Rob?

  • Rob: Yeah, Richard's invited me to his

  • New Year bash at his house. Everyone's

  • goingapart from you of course. And I've

  • even invited Zhong.

  • Feifei: Oh dear.

  • Rob: Why do you say that?

  • Feifei: Well if she goes, there will be fireworks.

  • Rob: Fireworks! Great!

  • Feifei: Not great, Rob. When we say there

  • will be 'fireworks'

  • we don't always mean the colourful

  • exploding things we see in the sky.

  • Sometimes 'fireworks' describes a lot of

  • angry shouting. So if Zhong turned up at

  • the party, there's bound to be some

  • shouting and arguing. Here are some

  • more examples of fireworks

  • The fireworks started when I told her what

  • I really thought about her boyfriend!

  • Argh! I'm going to be late again. The boss

  • is going to be furious when I get to work.

  • There's going to be fireworks!

  • There's a public meeting about the new

  • building plans tonightand there's bound to be

  • fireworks!

  • BBC Learning English. And I'm with Rob,

  • who's off to a party where there might be

  • fireworksthat's a lot of angry shouting.

  • Enjoy the party, Rob!

  • Rob: Thanks. So why might there be lots

  • of shouting?

  • Feifei: Well Zhong is Richard's ex-girlfriend.

  • Their relationship didn't end well.

  • Rob: Oh dear. The situation sounds a bit

  • 'explosive'. Maybe it won't be such a

  • happy New Year. Errr, what are your plans, Feifei?

  • Feifei: Me? Well I'm meeting my good

  • friends by the river in London to watch the
