"I have a question regarding the words ‘suffocate’ and ‘choke’. Please could you explain the difference? Thank you very much. "

Ho, Qingdao

Do you know the meaning of the verbs 'to suffocate' and 'to choke'?

On a hot day in the office, should you say

It's choking in here!

or

It's suffocating in here!?

After a rather uncomfortable start to the programme, Jackie and Li explore the similarities and differences between these two words.
