BBC News Review: Prince says: talk about your feelings 2022

June 6, 2022



Neil and Catherine teach you how to use the language the world’s media is using to discuss this story:

Prince William has said that the traditional British value of not showing your feelings should not be allowed to affect people’s health.

William’s mother, Princess Diana, was killed in a car crash when he and his brother Prince Harry were young.

Yesterday Prince Harry revealed he’d had counselling after spending 20 years “not thinking” about his mother’s death.

Vocabulary:

stiff upper lip

opens up
starts to talk about feelings

went off the rails
started to behave in a way that’s not socially acceptable

    Phrasal verbs are not proper English!? I wonder at such an attitude. The other languages I speak have nothing similar.

  28. Catherine is amazing! She explains so clear and she is an excellent teacher!

    Thanks for teaching us!

    I love this program!

  29. Very good thanks

  30. Excellent video,!

    Catherin thanks for explaning using Neil as Examples, it was similar like ''death stare'' nice example, and that makes easier to remember… really good english teachers!

  31. I've noticed an example with " stiff upper lip"- The father of the bride kept a stiff upper lip thoughout the wedding.
    I think it should be:
    The father of the bride kept a stiff upper lip throughout the wedding.

  32. throughout the wedding

  33. I ❤️ William !!! But Harry is…🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

  34. i love u both
