    hi, lewis, you haven’t updated your podcast for a long time. i am looking forward to it so much. to this podcast, i want to say that it’s very interesting that i find some distinct differences of the slangs about animals between chinese and english. when we call a person a chicken in Chinese, especially a female, it always implys that she is a prostitute. but in your podcast, chicken means coward. and i also heard that chicken has other meaning in english. for example, when we visit somebody’s house, the hostess is very considerate and kindhearted to take care of everbody. we may say she is just like a chicken to give consideration to everyone. it means tender and considerate here, right? and B.T.W, do you get the plan to make a podcast about food? such as couch potato, as cool as a cucumber, etc. good luck~

    Hi Michael.. I never heard this before “he is just like a chicken to give consideration to everyone. it means tender and considerate here, right?” Where did you get this information? I will do a food idiom soon. Thanks for comments and don’t forget you can download all of these to your Mp3 Player.
