“I’ve heard all the horror stories, and it can’t possibly be as bad as they say it is!”

定义

1. 定义 - Study the definition.

stories about bad experiences

2. 运用 - Learn how the slang is used.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Do you like scary stories? The kind where you sit around a fire with your friends at night, and you share stories about ghosts, or strange visitors in town who seem a little suspicious? Do you like that feeling of being scared as you wonder what’s going to happen next? What kind of horror will the storyteller reveal?

Not all kinds of horror stories actually involve ghosts and murderers, though. Sometimes a horror story is just a story about an extremely bad or negative situation. For example, you might hear horror stories about how crowded it is at a clothing store when they have a sale. Or you might hear horror stories about how badly your nephew behaved when he was out with his parents. These horror stories aren’t scary the way a zombie is, but they might still make you afraid.

Actor Josh Duhamel has heard some horror stories about a major life passage he’s about to make: becoming a father. He has probably heard about how he will be up all night, and have to change diapers, and how his life will completely change. Hopefully he’s not too scared, though, because he’ll be a dad soon!

What’s an experience that you’ve heard horror stories about? Do you think the experience is as bad as the horror stories say it is?

举例

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

“Matt has a lot of horror stories about working at Walmart.”

“I’ve heard all the horror stories about going to the market on Saturdays, but I don’t care if it’s crowded. I still want to go.”

“All the horror stories about Pamela aren’t true. She’s actually a nice person once you get to know her.”

Horror stories are my favorite subject,especially when your friends gathering around you at night ( I remembered at college’s accommodation back then) , and everyone share their own story. although it was thrill,but when  I’m a lone trying to go the bath room I find my self scared LOL, but you know that what I brought it to my self in the first place.

When I was taking my first skydive, our instructor told us in details all exigents which might happen in the air and what we should do to avoid them. When he gave us some time to think, there was a moment when I thought of giving up this idea as I was really  scared.

I recently heard that a friend of mine burnt all his furniture because he had many problem with his wife but then i figured out that it was not as bad as people told me about that it was just a rag carpet.


I think being in some horror stories is more horrific than those that we are in a crowded place or with a naughty boy or girl in comparison with the way people talk about it.

I remember that before I had the first job interview I had heard some horror stories about it, but the real experience was not that bad.

Since I am a medical student, I had to learn the lesson about Medical Anatomy and do experiments about the dead bodies in Grade 1. So scared, you couldn’t imagine that scene! At that time I was shy and didn’t dare to do that. Then I must find something to exercise my guts. I began to watch horror movies with my roommates. I don’t know whether it was effective in those days, but I have to say the horror movies are really exciting and unforgettable.


I still like to watch horror movies a lot now. American, Japanese, Korean and Thai horror movies are all great. But…you know, I will never see them in the dark of night alone!!!

Al-issawi, I don’t think the brutal reality of wars will fit  into the category of my favorite fantasies/fairy tales like Harry Poter, Lord of the Rings, Labrinth, Avatar, Crouching Tiger and hidden dragon, Pirots of the Carrebian, Never ending story!, Wizard of Oz, the Polar express! and it can be continued, continued and continued.

Yes, saba2, it is really dreadful stories in our country every day.I ’ m sure one day Hollywood will use those stories in next generation movies, they fit to horror and fantasy categories while they are real.

A father  while holding a new born  baby in his arms complained to me that  he couldn´t sleep  that night , as a consolation I told him: don´t worry , it is only during the first twenty years… big grin….   The latest horror story that is making headlines.  Three girls were kidnapped in Cleveland and kept locked up  in a dungeon of the house during ten years , what they had to  endure is beyond imagination.

i think most of horror stories are fiction we’re thinking of possibilty of its reality then we suppose it’s true stories.it comes from our imagination.so get relax and take your time
