Welcome to ClAIRSTONE! In this episode, you will learn how to use the English words "community" and "company".
Hello everyone, my name is Jasmine, and you are listening to the English ClAIRSTONE Podcast, where you can build the cornerstone of your English vocabulary! For all our new listeners, welcome to the community, and for our regulars, hello again! Before we start, I will remind you that we upload new episodes twice a week and there are transcripts for each podcast episode in English, Arabic, and Spanish at our website projectclair.org, so go check that out if you want to follow along!
Today, we will look at the two nouns “community” and “company.
A Community, spelled C-O-M-M-U-N-I-T-Y, is a group of people, but there are different kinds of communities.
One type of community is a group of people who share common interests, or traits. You can use this word in the sentence: “The student community likes to study in the library.”
Another type of community is a group of people living near each other, such as “My community has monthly events at the local park.”
The third type of community is a group of experts in a profession. For example, “The science community supports the use of this gas.”
So, you can use the word “community” about a general or certain group.
Next, the word “company,” spelled C-O-M-P-A-N-Y, is another group of people that usually work together, it is sometimes used like the word “business.” A sentence with this word is “That candy company has very nice workers.” Or, this word can mean visitors or guests such as “We have company tonight at home.”
The words “community” and “company” both are groups of people, but each meaning is a little bit different. A community is less formal than a company.
Well, that is it for today’s episode! This was the Clairstone Podcast, and for the full transcript for all our episodes, go to our website projectclair.org. I hope you will start to use the words “community” and “company” in your English practice, and I will see you next time! Bye, everyone!
