    Episode 2: In the flat

    Tim: Alice this is my cousin Michal — our new flatmate. He's really missing his friends.

    Alice: Oh, Michal let me take your mind off that...So, where are you from?

    Michal: From near Warsaw — the Polish capital.

    Alice: Oh, what do you do?

    Michal: I'm a guide tourist.

    Alice: So interesting! Why are you visiting London?

    Michal: To improve my English.

    Alice: Oh, well, why not come out with us now? Then we can cheer you up and you can practise your English at the same time.

    Language Point. Compound Words

    Compound words are made up of two (or more) separate words. You can combine nouns (a flatmate), adjectives (lovesick) or verbs (jump-start) to make compound words.

    ~

    Sometimes they become one word:

    flatmate (noun)

    lovesick (adjective)

    ~

    Sometimes they become two words:

    tourist guide (noun)

    travel agent (noun)

    ~

    Sometimes they become hyphenated:

    low-paid (adjective)

    film-goer (noun)

    Note: There are no hard and fast rules about which category each compound word goes into but a good dictionary will tell you. You can also help yourself by making a note of new compound words you come across and the category they go into.

    ~

    Generally the stress is on the first word:

    phone box (noun)

    smoke-free (adjective)

    spoon-feed (verb)
