Introduction

Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.

In this lesson we will learn expressions that you can use while talking about the house chores.

Changing Responsibilities.

Morgan : I’m tired of doing the same thing every day, day after day.

Victoria: What are you talking about?

Morgan : I’m talking about my home chores. Could you assign me something else?

Victoria: Well, that’s not a bad idea. What about mowing the lawn? Would you like to do that?

Morgan : Mowing the lawn? That’s really hard work. Don’t you have something easier?

Victoria : Can you vacuum the carpets?

Morgan : Yes, I think I can do that. When do I start?

Too Much Work!

Debra: Was I born just to take care of this house and keep it clean?

Henry: What happened to you? Why do you look so mad?

Debra: We have a party in a couple of days and none of you guys are helping me.

Henry: Oh, I am sorry. There was an important game on the TV and I wanted to watch it.

Debra: I gave up a get-together with my friends to do all this work, and you want to watch a game?

Henry: I am sorry, Debra. Let me lend you a hand. What do you want me to do?

Managing Alone.

Victoria : Martin is going on a week-long work related trip this Monday.

Debra: Oh? So you’re going to be handling the kids all by yourself?

Victoria : Yes, it’ll be just me and the children in the house.

Debra: Won’t you have any trouble managing alone? There’s a lot of work to be done!

Victoria : I know. The house work, and the kids who have to be dropped at school too. It’s going to be a tough week.

Spring Cleaning.

Debra : I think it’s time for the spring cleaning. We need to give this house a makeover.

Morgan : Yeah, we need to clean it up thoroughly.

Debra : We should go into the attic and just throw away some of the old stuff.

Morgan : Right, I can do that. Will you take care of the bedrooms?

Debra : Sure. I will clean up the bedrooms, and you can clean up the basement and the attic.

Morgan : Deal!
