Welcome to CLAIRSTONE! In this episode, you will learn how to use the English words "danger" and "extension".
Hello everyone, my name is Shivika, and you are listening to the English ClAIRSTONE Podcast, where you can build the cornerstone of your English vocabulary! For all the 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 be looking at the words ‘Danger’ and ‘Extension’.
The word danger is spelled as D-A-N-G-E-R. Danger can be a situation that is likely to cause someone harm or injury. An example could be, ‘His life was in danger when he was mountain climbing.’ when a person goes mountain climbing there is a possibility of harm, making it dangerous. Danger can also mean things that can cause harm or injury. For example, “knives are a danger when using.” In this sentence danger is describing knives to possibly be harmful.
Extension is spelled as E-X-T-E-N-S-I-O-N. Extensions means a part that is added to make something longer. It is like a continuation. Extension could be an extension on a paper so there is more time added before it is due. Or it could be an extension to a railroad, so more track was added for the trains. A sentence could be, “The builders are taking 6 months to make the extension of the living room and kitchen.” In this sentence extension is expanding the size of the living room and kitchen.
