UNTOUCHED= not touched. "Untouched by time"= without changes (time has passed but this place is still the same, nothing has changed)
SEARCH FOR= look for
SET OUT= if you set out to do something, you start making plans to do it
DIRECTION IS MY SIXTH SENSE= we have five senses (touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste), so this sentence means: I’m so good at finding my way and not getting lost, that you can consider it my sixth sense.
WATCH OUT= be careful
SLIGHT= very small
PRESSURE= the force that you produce when you press on something
SHATTER= break into pieces, like when a glass falls down and breaks
BLOW YOUR MIND= if something "blows your mind", it is extremely shocking.
LAVA= volcanoes throw out liquid rocks, like burning red cream. That’s lava.
TO DUCK= to lower your head or your whole body (often to avoid something from hitting your head)
IT’S ON YOUR TRACK= it’s following you. The tracks are the signs you leave behind when you move (footprints, broken vegetation, etc.). Hunters follow the track of animals to find them and kill them.
LIVE= pronounced to rhyme with LIKE. It means: happening for real in front of your eyes (not something recorded in the past). Don’t confuse this with "to live" (rhyming with SHIP)
3D= in three dimensions (a photograph has 2 dimensions: height and width; a sculpture has 3 dimensions: height, width and depth).
THE FIRST EVER= the first one of all times (it’s just an emphatic way of saying "the first"). You can also use it with superlatives: "he’s the tallest person ever" = there never existed a person taller than him.
DINOSAUR= notice the pronunciation /daɪnəsɔ:*/.
SKIN= the film that covers our body to protect us from the outside
SEAN= careful, this name is pronounced "shon" (like Sean Conery), not *"seen"
MUM(BrE)= MOM(AmE). In both cases the pronunciation is the same, but the spelling is different because that sound corresponds to different vowels in BrE and AmE.
SORT OF= more or less
THEATRES(AmE)= cinemas(BrE). When the cinema arrived to America, it was shown in theatre houses, so cinemas in America are called "theatres" (sometimes also "cinemas")
