Catch Word #235 – Through thick and thin

Culips Everyday English Podcast show

Summary: In this Catch Word episode, Andrew and Kassy introduce some vocabulary and expressions about receiving moral support. We’re going to look at two expressions that we use when talking about giving and getting moral support. And moral support is when you support somebody, kind of like emotionally. So it’s kind of emotional support when you are listening to someone and agreeing with someone and you’re on that person’s side, you approve of what they’re doing, this is moral support. And it’s a little bit different than other types of support, for example, financial support, where you’re giving somebody money, right? It’s not really that, you’re just more being a good friend to someone and supporting them that way. So we’ll take a look at these expressions you can use when talking about moral support today.
