Hello and welcome to 6 Minute English. I’m Sophie…
And I’m Neil.
I see you’re wearing trainers today, Neil.
Of course, I don’t wear anything else.
Well, trainers – or to use the American term, sneakers – are the subject of today’s show. They are ubiquitous – that means you can find them everywhere! People wear them across the globe – men, women, kids, teenagers and pensioners. And did you know that 85% of people who buy trainers don’t wear them for sport?
That makes sense to me. I wear mine because they’re comfortable.
They’re also very tatty – that means old and in bad condition – if you don’t mind me saying so.
Hmm. I should probably get a new pair.
There’s a lot of choice out there. Hi-tops, gel, air, classic, retro… the list goes on. But before we go any further, I have a question for you. What’s a popular US slang term for trainers?
Or c) flats?
