English in a Minute – Beach Bum:海滩流浪汉

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Lots of people enjoy going to the beach.

Lying out in the sand.

Listening to the sound of the ocean waves.

But what does it mean to be a beach bomb?

Anna, do you ever feel like you want to just leave everything behind and go be a beach bum?

Well, sometimes. But then we'd never get any work done.

Exactly. That's kind of the point.

I like it.

A beach bum is a person who spends a lot of time at the beach.

In fact, a beach bum only wants to be at the beach and be completely unproductive.

Beach bum can be used in both a positive and negative way.

And that's English in a Minute!
