radio show

My favorite move was based on a radio show.

A 'radio show' is a program you can listen to on the radio that has a specific theme and schedule. Notice the following:

  1. People don't listen to radio shows as much as they used to.
  2. This is a political radio talk show.

host

People would call in to the host, and they would explain their problems related to love.

The 'host' of a radio program is the person who leads the discussion on the radio. Notice the following:

  1. Who is hosting the award show this year?
  2. This program just got a new host last week.

affair

He was having an affair with his neighbor, and he was caught by her husband.

When you have an 'affair,' you have a romantic relationship with someone other than your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend. Notice the following:

  1. Could you forgive your husband if he had an affair?
  2. They got a divorce after he found out that his wife was having an affair.

traumas

It shows all the traumas and the problems it creates when you have problems in your childhood.

A 'trauma' is a bad experience that has a long-term affect on you. Notice the following:

  1. The whole thing was a very traumatic experience for such a young person to go through.
  2. It can be very hard to get over the trauma of a bad car accident.

version

Actually, there's a version with English subtitles, so any time.

A 'version' of something is a particular form of something that is a little bit different than other forms. Notice the following:

  1. I prefer the live version of this song.
  2. This is a different version of this game than we play at home.
