  • Hi everyone I am Niharika and welcome back. Well, in today’s lesson we are going to

  • learn how to describe a party.

  • We all attend parties, Right? Maybe a birthday

  • bash, maybe an anniversary bash, a house warming party and so on. Now, probably a friend of

  • your was invited and she didn’t make it for the party and the next day she meets you

  • and asks how was the party? How would you describe the party to her? Or, probably your

  • parents called you and saidOh you went for the party, how was it”? How would you

  • describe it? Well, that’s what we are gonna learn. We gonna look at some phrases in today’s

  • lesson that will help you to describe the party that you attended.

  • The very first thing that we are gonna look at is, What did you do? So, many people will

  • come and ask you , “so what did you do at the party?” Now, the things that you do

  • or the things that we commonly do at a party are :

  • Chatted up with friends, so you gonna say oh we chatted up with friends. You meet friends,

  • you meet new people or probably you just want to catch up on the news and because probably

  • you are meeting your friends after a long time so, “nothing much I just chatted up

  • with friends. Okay! So this is one thing that you did at the party. What are the other things

  • that you do at the party? Well, danced all night long. So probably the music was absolutely

  • fantastic and you couldn’t stop dancing, you danced all night long. Well, I do that

  • because I totally love dancing, so I danced all night long. So, Yes if you are also a

  • great dancer or probably you just enjoy dancing then you danced all night long is what you

  • will mention to your friend. Had couple of drinks. Of course, when you

  • go for a party you are not just gonna sit, you gonna drink , you gonna eat . SO you gonna

  • talk about the food that you ate, the kind of appetizers that were there or the kind

  • of drinks that were there at the party. SO you would say, well I had couple of drinks,

  • I had lots of stuff to eat. So, this is the way you will talk about drinking and eating.

  • Flirted or Socialized. Okay , If you are single, then the very first thing that boys especially

  • look forward is to spot some good looking girl. And if they are attracted to the girl,

  • they flirt. Right? All boys do, don’t worry boys girls do that too. So, you flirted, I

  • flirted with a very good looking guy or I flirted with a beautiful girl at the party.

  • Now, if you don’t get a chance to flirt or if you didn’t spot a good looking girl

  • or a guy then you socialize. Well, you meet new people at the party, so you socialize

  • with the people. You know, you just meet new people and have different types of small talks

  • with them. So you either flirt or socialize. So these are couple of things that you do

  • at a party. Now, the next is How was the music? Of course

  • when you are attending a party some kind of music will be played, right? If someone asks

  • you how was the music out there? Right up my street. This phrase can be used if the

  • music is what you like. The music that was played is your favorite. Right up my street

  • is something or some kind of music that you like. And, especially if you like that kind

  • of music, whatever music that was played you would dance, you would sing, you would have

  • a great time. So use this phrase It was right up my street.

  • Next, It was upbeat , it was rocking. So how was the music, well it was upbeat means it

  • was really nice, the beat, the rhythm was just perfect or it was absolutely rocking,

  • which means the party was great because of the music. So either it was upbeat or it was

  • rocking. Now lets have a look at some more phrases. Another common question that people

  • ask is - How was the atmosphere? so it means that the party where you went to , how was

  • the atmosphere out there. So you can say " It was laid back or It was chilled out,so laid

  • back or chilled out it means that people were just casually having a good time, you know

  • they were enjoying their drinks so it was not very you know... the music was great or

  • people were just dancing and it wasn't a wild or loud party, it was pretty laid back and

  • it was chilled out , so many at times its not necessary that the party has to be wild

  • at time you know people really enjoy being little laid back or you know little chilled

  • out when they go for a party. So, It was laid back or chilled out. Now if it was not laid

  • back or chilled out, it was electrifying, now electrifying means it was wild , it was

  • thrilling okay, in fact you can use all the three words, you can either say " Oh! the

  • party was absolutely electrifying or it was wild, it was thrilling" okay so it means absolutely

  • crazy. Then, How was the decor? Now, many a times when you go for a party, people tend

  • to decorate the place, either their house or the banquet where the party is, or wherever

  • the party is organised people tend to decorate it. So, if you found the decor pretty interesting

  • or pretty cool then you can use the words like , It was funky, funky means it was quiet

  • interesting. Something which is very different and very interesting, it's funky or it's cool,

  • the decor was absolutely cool. A bit tacky, well tacky is a negative word, so if you think

  • that, tacky decor was pretty cheap or it was not great at all, then it was a bit tacky,

  • decor was a bit tacky, so remember that the word tacky is a negative word. And the last

  • one, it was themed, now you know usually for birthday parties people like to play with

  • themes okay so either they have like a Hawaii theme or you birthday parties for little kids,

  • they have a cartoon theme, so if it was a themed party then mention what theme was it

  • okay, so probably it was a Hawaiian theme party or it was a neon themed party well,

  • a neon themed party is where people have to dress up in neon colors, like the loud green,

  • the loud pink, loud orange so that's neon party or Pool parties are themed parties,

  • because they are at the pool, people are dressed up in their swim suits, in their bikinis or

  • boys are dressed p in their trunks so that's a pool party, but again it is also called

  • as a themed party. So, mention the theme, what theme was it, so these are the words

  • or the phrases that you can use to describe a party. Now remember it's not necessary that

  • people will put up questions like, how was the atmosphere? How was the decor? People

  • will just simply ask you , How was the party that you attended? So, maybe you can go in

  • a sequence and talk about where and when the party was, you can talk about what did you

  • do at the party and then you can talk about what kind of music was there, what was the

  • atmosphere like and what was the decor like, okay so you can go in a sequence, so not necessary

  • that people will ask you specifically, how was the decor? or how were the people out

  • there? okay but you will be able to describe the party if you have gone through this lesson.

  • I will be back with a new lesson, the next time you attend a party let me know how was

  • the party, I wait for your answers and I will be back, till then you take care and have a great day

Hi everyone I am Niharika and welcome back. Well, in today’s lesson we are going to
