من جعفر معدنی سعی دارم در این نوشته به یادگیری لغات روزمره و مهم بپردازم. یکی از موضوعات و لغات مهمی که هر زبان آموزی می بایست به آن تسلط داشته باشد ، بحث از خواب بیدار شدن در زبان انگلیسی و لغات و جملات مرتبط به آن است.
بحث بیدار شدن یا همان getting up که به معنی از جا بلند شدن می باشد. همانطور که شاید بدانید ما یک فعل wake up داریم که به معنی بیدار شدن است و یک فعل get up به معنی از جا یا تختخواب بلند شدن که بعد از بیدار شدن از خواب اتفاق میافتد.
ابتدا فایل صوتی را به همراه متن موجود ، چندین بار گوش کنید و بعد از آن به قسمت پایین برویید و توضیحات لغات مشکل متن را بخوانید:

alarm, usually because of some noise outside the house—a car door slamming,
