Real English Conversation | Shopping for a New Headset | 43
Listen to a short, real English conversation as Emma tells Luke about her experience getting lost in the computer store while shopping for a new headset.
This episode is good for practicing how to tell and listen to a story in English. It also has common expressions that show your conversation partner you are listening to the story, such as ‘So, what did you do?’

You're listening to a real English conversation with Dialogue Frog. So, I have another story for you, Luke.
Bring it on.
A few days ago, my headset died.
Uh oh. Like it wouldn't even move?
It would not even move.
You checked its little headphone vitals?
I checked the headphone vitals. There was no sound. It would not record my voice, and I use that thing for work! I can't, I can't be without a headset.
Mm hm. So, what did you do?
This, this weekend I had to go to the computer store.
It was not a fun experience.
Apparently there's a lot of different types of headphones. Or rather, there's a difference between a headphone and a headset.
I didn't know this.
So in the store, there's two different sections.
There's a section for headphones.
Headphones are what you use to listen to music, apparently. So, they are compatible with smartphones, mp3 players and that kind of thing.
Then there's headsets, which are compatible with computers.
And actually, there's actually a subdivision here. There's headsets for gamers-
And then there's like work headsets.
And those are actually in different parts of the store too! So there's three sections just for things that can either record your voice and provide you with sound.
Needless to say, I got lost in the store.
Yep. That's quite a- quite a dilemma.
It was a dilemma. Eventually though, I found a new headset.
I almost bought the wrong ones. And they are expensive so I'm glad I-I bought a headset and not headphones.
Alright, well thanks for listening to another real conversation in English with Dialogue Frog.
