Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Episode 36 – Vocabulary – Household Chores

As a kid, I was always obliged to take out the trash.  My brother, who barely did anything, was never told to take out the trash – only me.  When I began getting paid for my duties from a many upstairs in an apartment complex, my brother got jealous, created a story and told my mom the man was doing “drugs,” ultimately taking away the money I was earning as an 11-year-old kid.  Jealousy runs DEEP. Ha!

With that being said, let’s go over some plans and meetings with time expressions.

Time Expressions: next weekend, the day after tomorrow, tonight, tomorrow morning, this weekend, tomorrow night, tomorrow afternoon, next month.

Household Chores: buy groceries, pay the bills, wash dishes, clean the house, put away the groceries, water the plants, do the laundry, take out the garbage.
