Video Transcript

…so I forgot to turn my audio on in that last little clip, but luckily I found my lens cap. Now, I’m going to try and get close to the house to find a quiet area so I can do a facebook live video. I’m going to do a live lesson from the Biltmore house!

I’m gonna go for a walk now and explore a little bit more – I’m going to take you with me! (Just) recorded another video for YouTube. A lot of people are walking this way well then coming back so I don’t think there’s an exit down (there)

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any parking with shade my car is going to be so hot later! Now at the village area where they have shops, restaurants and wine tasting! Okay, I’m going to go into the wine cellar now it’s time to test some wine – it’s going to be a good afternoon! I’ve done a lot of walking today here at the Biltmore Estate, and now I’m just gonna listen to this music and chill out for a little while…

So, I hope you have enjoyed this type of video. I’ve had such a fun day here in the Biltmore estate and I’m going to come a lot over the summer, especially with my family and make more videos about this place and help you learn English at the same time. Now, it’s starting to get very windy and the guy playing the guitar said that he saw lightning in this direction. So, I’m going to go for a quick walk and stay very close to the car and if it starts pouring down then I can make a quick escape. Now, to learn about the vocabulary that I used in this video then click the link in the description. It will take you to my website where i will list the different vocabulary and phrases I used along with more examples. So you can get a lot out of that. So, if you’ve liked this video then please give it a thumbs up and also share it with your friends. Also if you’re new, please subscribe! So thank you for watching this video, I’ll see you guys next time!
