文字稿

Hi, everyone. I'm James, and today I'm going to share four verbs you can use instead of walk.

Let's get started. So the first verb is stroll. This is a slow casual walk you might take to relax.

For example: We took a stroll around the park to get some fresh air.

So the next verb is pace. You might pace when you're stressed or anxious about something and it's normally when you walk back and to, across a small area.

So, for example: I paced around my home office waiting to find out if I'd got the job.

Let's look at wander now. Wander means 'to walk around with no destination in mind'.

So, for example: On our first day of holiday we wandered around the city centre.

And finally we have the verb swagger. This means 'to walk around with too much self-confidence and arrogance'.

So, for example: Pete swaggered around the office when he won the lottery.

See you next time, everyone!
