Rob: Hello and welcome to 6 Minute English from bbclearningenglish. Now, is there anything that makes you feel good about your country? This is what I’m talking about with Finn today. Hello Finn.
Finn: Hi Rob. Yes, this is something we call national pride. Pride is a feeling of pleasure and satisfaction that you get because you or people or places connected with you have done something good.
Rob: So it is a good feeling. We can also say ‘to take pride in something’ so we feel good about doing something.
Finn: Some people in Britain – or the United Kingdom – recently felt proud when it was announced the first ever British astronaut is to go to the International Space Station. An astronaut is a person who has trained to go into space.
Rob: We will talk more about this and what makes us proud soon. First I need to set you a question, Finn.
