Phrasal Verbs with TAKE: "take to", "take in", "take after"...
 
08:16
http://www.engvid.com So you've decided to take up English. Good for you! Take your language skills further by learning phrasal verbs that use the verb TAKE. In this lesson, you'll learn the difference between "taking a girl out to dinner" and "taking the bad guy out of action". We'll also look at expressions such as "take to", "take in", "take after", and more. If you don't know them already, don't worry. I'll take you under my wing! Test your knowledge with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/phrasal-verbs-take/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is, again, phrasal verbs; everybody's favourite lessons. Today, we're going to look at phrasal verbs using the verb "take". Again, a quick review: what is a phrasal verb? A phrasal verb is a verb and a preposition, when put together, giving different meanings. Sometimes one, sometimes two, sometimes more. So, today, we're going to look at "take out", "take in", "take over", "take up",-excuse me-"take after", "take back", "take off", "take on", "take down", "take to". Let's start with "take out". All of you, of course, know takeout food. You go to McDonald's, they ask you if you want to eat in or take out. So, take out means to take your food to go. That's one meaning. Another meaning of "take out" is the literal meaning; exactly what the words mean. For example, you have a turkey in the oven. It is finished cooking. You take it out of the oven. Then, there is also the slang. If you want to take someone out, you kill them. You see this in kind of the mob movies. They want to take someone out; they want to assassinate. Assassinate. I'll have to... Yeah, I'll leave that for now. Okay. "Take in". What does "take in" mean? A few meanings as well. The first is the most common one. If your clothes are too big, if you've lost some weight, you might want to take in your shirt, or your dress, or your pants. You take it to a tailor, and he or she will take it in; make it smaller, tighter. Another meaning of "take in", for example, if you go outside your house and you see a cat, and the cat is sitting there: "Meow, meow", you know, it's all sad and lonely. You take it in. It doesn't mean you take it into your house. It, of course, means that. But more, it means like adopt. You take it into your house, you give it a home, it's part of the family. So, you accept, you take in, you adopt something or someone. "Take over". "Take over" means assume control of something. So, for example, if I own a big company and you own a slightly smaller company, but you're my competition, one way I can beat you is I can take over your company. I can buy a lot of shares in your company, and I take over. I take control. If we're going on a long road trip, and I'm driving and I'm getting tired, I say: "Oh, can you take over the driving?" Means we switch, and you continue driving. "Take up". If you take up space, for example, it means you use. You use space. You take up space in a room. Another way to say "take up" is you start to do something new, like a new hobby, or you start learning something new. So, recently, I took up Spanish. It means I started going to Spanish classes, and I started to learn Spanish. Now, if you add "with", you can take something up with someone. It means you can discuss. So, if you have a problem in your class and you're falling behind, and you're not doing so well, take this problem up with your teacher. It means go to your teacher and discuss the situation. See how you can fix it. Okay. "After". If you take after someone, means you behave like them. It's very similar to look like, except it's not about physical features; it's about personality. So, if you take after someone, you are similar to someone in terms of character or behaviour. So, for example, I take after my mother. My sister takes after my father. My father was a very hot-tempered man. My sister's a very hot-tempered woman, so she takes after him. "Take back". Again, two meanings. There's the literal meaning, so I lend you my pen. You use it. You finished. I take it back. You give it back to me, it returns to me; I take it back. Now, if I said something really mean to you or something not nice, or I made a promise and then I take it back, it means I cancel what I said. So, if I said something that made you upset and I take it back, it means I apologize. I take back the bad words and everything's okay, hopefully. If I made a promise then take it back, it means I'm not going to do this promise anymore. Okay? So you have to be a little bit careful about take backs. "Take off". I think most of you know the airplane takes off. It goes down the runway, then "whew," takes off. But "take off" can also mean to be very successful or very quickly to do well. So, a business starts and, you know, the owners are doing what they can, but suddenly the business just takes off. It becomes very popular, very successful, making lots of money, hopefully, again.

Speak English Naturally: My pronunciation secret for difficult words
 
14:08
Learn the important pronunciation technique called BACKCHAINING, used by actors, singers, and public speakers to sound more natural and authentic in any language. Backchaining will retrain your ears to hear and your mouth to pronounce English words more easily and successfully. It is especially useful for those long, difficult English words, but it is also helpful with any word you are struggling with. Most English teachers do not have time to teach you this simple strategy, but you can apply it immediately after watching this lesson. Famous language courses are based on this powerful pronunciation technique; watch, listen, and solve your pronunciation problems today! https://www.engvid.com/speak-english-naturally-backchaining/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. In this lesson you're going to learn a pronunciation secret that will help you to say English words more easily and correctly, especially long, difficult ones. Okay? Now, this is actually a professional technique that's used by actors, and singers, and linguists, and lots of people who have learned many different languages and want to or need to pronounce words correctly and authentically. Okay? Now, the reason why pronunciation is difficult for everyone when you're learning a new language is because when we grow up speaking our native language, we get used to... Our ears get used to hearing certain sounds, and our mouths get used to making certain sounds. And when we learn a new language, like English, then you have to train both your ear and your mouth to work a little bit differently. Okay? Now, the other part is because English is not phonetic, it's not completely phonetic. A large part of it is. Some people say about 80 to 85% is phonetic, but a lot of it is not phonetic. What does that mean? That means when we see a word, the way we say it is not the way it looks. Right? So, there's also that factor to take into account. But this technique can help you with both of these difficulties. Okay? So, first let's look at what we normally do when you're learning how to pronounce a word. Okay? So normally what we do is we do something called frontchaining, and I'm going to explain to you exactly what that is, but what I'm going to teach you in this lesson, the secret is something called backchaining, and that's what we will practice. Now, let's take our first example and do what people normally do, even teachers, even ESL teachers. All right? When they're teaching classrooms, they don't normally spend that much time on pronunciation because they don't have time. There's so much to teach and the class is so big, there's so many students it's difficult to spend time on pronunciation. So naturally, people have a harder time learning that and mastering that. And if you think about it, when a child is born and when a child is growing up, it doesn't learn to read first, it just learns by listening. So this is an opportunity to listen afresh, like new in a different way to words so that you can reproduce the correct sound, the correct pronunciation. Okay? So let's take our first example, and our first example is the word "pronunciation". Okay? Because by the way, a lot of people do not say this word correctly. Now, let's do it in the standard way, frontchaining, and see what happens. So in frontchaining, we start pronouncing or saying the word from the front and going forward. So if I did that, if I was teaching you how to say this word by using frontchaining, I would say to you: "You need to say it like this: pro-nun-ci-a-tion." Okay? I've divided up here just to make it a little bit easier for you to see and hear the syllables. Okay? This long word happens to have five parts, five syllables. Right? So it's quite long. Pronunciation. So when a student hears that, they're like: "Oh my god, I have to learn so many different sounds", and it's a little bit scary because there are five sounds, you know, that have to follow. So, what happens when you feel scared or nervous about something? Your brain shuts down. You don't learn as effectively. You don't learn as well as when you're happy and relaxed. So the advantage of learning in... Through the other system, the other technique called backchaining is that you feel much more relaxed because when we did it from the front we had to learn one, two, three, four, five different sounds. But look what happens when we use backchaining. So, backchaining is a technique that teaches you how to pronounce words starting from the end. So let's do that now and see what happens. So let's just take this last syllable, and we can say: "tion". So all you have to learn right now is the word "tion". Not word, part of the word. Next: "ation". You can repeat it after me. "ation, ciation, ciation, nunciation, nunciation". And last: "pronunciation, pronunciation".

10 WORK Expressions in English
 
12:17
http://www.engvid.com/ What does it mean to be overworked? Are you a workaholic? Do you easily get worked up over nothing? In this English lesson, I will teach you the following ten expressions with the word work in them: overworked, work someone in, get worked up, workaholic, work out for the best, work on something, dirty work, work it, and the two different meanings of work out. After this video, I hope you work on our quiz to practice these expressions. http://www.engvid.com/10-work-expressions-in-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and today we are going to learn some work expressions, okay? So these expressions don't necessarily actually have to do with work, but they're expressions that use the word "work". So today, I will teach you ten new expressions. Let's get started. Expression No. 1: "overworked". What does it mean to be "overworked"? If you are "overworked", it means you have too much work, okay? So this is not a happy situation. So you might tell your boss, "Listen. I feel a little overworked." Maybe you complain to your friends on the phone, "Work is so hard. I'm overworked. There's no staff. It's all me. I work, work, work. I'm overworked." So "over" usually means, like, "more". So that's a hint, "overworked". One thing about all of these expressions: Pay careful attention to the preposition because with work expressions, a change in preposition can completely change the meaning of the expression. So that is "overworked". I hope none of you are overworked, and I hope none of you are "underpaid", meaning you're not getting enough money. Our next expression is "dirty work". I really like this expression. So what is "dirty work"? Well, "dirty" is the opposite of "clean", okay? So "dirty" is "no clean" -- "not clean". "Dirty work" is work that is not fun work. No one wants to do dirty work, okay? So it's unpleasant -- see the sad face? -- work. What is an example of dirty work? Well, maybe you work at a company, and maybe there's a co-worker, or maybe you have some staff, and someone wants you to "fire" that staff, meaning someone is not happy with this person's work, so they want this person to be "fired". Instead of them saying "You can't work here now", they will tell you to fire this person. So it's a job you don't want to do, essentially. There are many examples of "dirty work", but what it really is, is a job no one wants to do. Clean toilets might be dirty work. Maybe your friend is having a party, and there're a lot of people invited, and the party has to be cancelled. Maybe the dirty work is you have to tell everyone the party is cancelled. So it's work you don't want to do. Example No. 3: "get worked up". What does it mean to "get worked up"? It means you get very, very angry or very upset. It means you get very emotional. When you get worked up, you get very angry or emotional. So "get worked up". An example of that: Maybe it's the night before your big test, and you haven't studied, and you're very stressed out, and you start to cry, and you say, "I'm not going to pass this test. My life is ruined. I'll never get into a university. Everything's horrible." That's you getting worked up, okay? Because chances are you will do all right on your test, and you will get into university, and even if you don't, you can try again at a later time. No. 4: "work out". So "work out" has two meanings. The first meaning is "exercise", okay? Do any of you guys work out? I think working out is fun. So it just means, you know, if you like to run, if you like to lift weights. Maybe you like to play basketball -- these are "workouts"; it's exercise to become healthy. The second meaning of "work out" is when you "work something out", you find a solution to that. So for example, maybe you have a math problem, maybe two times two, two times two: You have to "work it out". That one is a little easy, but maybe you have calculus.
Learn POLITE expressions in English – Don't be RUDE!
 
08:29
Does your coworker have "a bun in the oven"? Has your boss "let himself go"? In this lesson, you will learn some expressions that people often use to say things indirectly in order to sound more polite or less rude. What can you do to avoid using words like "toilet", "dead", or "fat"? Watch this video to learn some interesting alternatives to these words and more. After watching, do the quiz to check if you have understood the material: http://www.engvid.com/polite-english-dont-be-rude/ TRANSCRIPT Hi again. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is a little bit interesting. I'll give you a little bit of a background first of all. English speakers, and this is a very cultural part of English... And remember, culture plays a lot... Has a big role when it comes to language. A lot of speakers, in English, don't want to say certain words. For some reason, they think this word is dirty or heavy, or they just don't like this word, so we find soft expressions. We find other ways to say the same thing that everybody understands, everybody from the culture understands. It may be a little bit difficult for non-native English speakers to understand these expressions, so today we're going to look at a few. There are many, many such expressions. We're just going to look at a few for today. Firstly, these soft expressions are also called euphemisms. You don't need to know this word. If you want to look up more expressions, type: "euphemisms" into your search box on the internet, and you'll see many more. I'm just going to give you a few to give you an example of what a euphemism is. And when you watch Hollywood movies or TV shows, if you hear these expressions, now hopefully, you will understand what they mean. So we're going to start with: "passed away" which is very common. I think many of you probably know this expression. Or: "did not make it". So if you go to the hospital, your friend was in a car accident, and you bring him to the hospital or the ambulance brings him to the hospital, and he's in there for a while, and then you see the doctor. And you go to the doctor: "How's my friend?" And the doctor says: "Oh, I'm sorry. He didn't make it." What does that mean? Or: "I'm sorry. He passed away." What does that mean? It means he died. Now, why people don't like to say the word "died", well, it's a very heavy word. Death, people don't like to talk about death, so they find other ways to say the same thing. Okay? Now, all of these are not bad things, but you know, we just want to soften the language. We want to be a bit more polite sometimes. If you want, if you're in the washroom and you want... Sorry, if you're in the restaurant and you want the washroom, but you don't want to say the word "washroom" or you don't want to say the word "toilet", you say... If you're a boy, you say, or a man, you say: "Where's the little boys' room?" If you're a woman: "Where's the ladies' room?" Now, we understand all this to be toilet. But people think "toilet" is a dirty word. They don't like to say the word "toilet", so they say: "Little boys' room", or: "Ladies' room". Okay? Now, sometimes you'll see people in a wheelchair. Maybe they had an accident, maybe they were born this way, but they can't walk. They're in a wheelchair. Or you see people who have a... Who were born with a disease, and they're not, you know, they're not fully functional like everyone else. We used to say: "handicapped". But people find this word to be a little bit offensive, and so it's not politically correct; it's not a nice thing to say. So now, we say: "They are mentally challenged." Or: "They are physically challenged." It used to be: "handicapped" or: "disabled". But people don't want to say "disabled" because they think or they know that these people are very able, they can do many things; they're just limited. Okay? They are challenged by their condition. So they are mentally challenged or they are physically challenged is a more polite way to say it. Okay, so now, we're going to look at the next expressions. If you want to talk about a man or a woman, and the not polite way to talk about them is to say: "He or she is fat", big. So, people don't like the word "fat". So, for a more polite way or a softer way to say "fat" for a woman is: "She is full-figured." Full-figured means she's complete. She's full in all the places, and that's what we say. A man, we're a little bit less nice to men. A man has "let himself go". Means he stopped taking care of himself, and became fat. Okay? Again, not a nice word, but not necessarily a very nice expression either, but it's softer. It's not as direct, but everybody understands what this means.

Classroom English: Vocabulary & Expressions for Students
 
09:36
http://www.engvid.com Are you the new student in your English class? Do you understand what your teacher is saying? In this lesson, we will go over some of the vocabulary, expressions, and questions that you might hear in class. What do you say if they are speaking too fast or if you didn't hear? It can be stressful to ask questions, but after this lesson, you will be more confident participating and interacting with your teacher and classmates. Take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/classroom-english/ TRANSCRIPT: Hi. Welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson comes as a request, because I know that there are actually quite a few of you who are teachers of English, and you wanted to know some classroom English. So, today, we're going to look at classroom English. This is more for beginners, especially people who have just joined an English class, an ESL class, EFL class, etc. and you're starting to get used to the classroom environment, and you're not exactly sure what the teacher is saying, what you should say, etc. We're going to start with the teachers. What do teachers say that you need to understand? Okay? [Clears throat] Excuse me. First, the teacher will take attendance, or the teacher will take roll call. Sorry, these are two separate words, "roll call". Basically, they want to know who is here and who is not here. Okay? So, if a student is in the class, he or she is present. So, if the teacher says: -"Bill?" -"Present." -"Mary?" -"Present." -"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?" Bueller is absent. He or she is not in the class. So, "absent", not here. "Present", here. If the teacher has finished with attendance and starts to teach the class, and a student comes in then, that student is late. And they get a little check. Too many lates, you get into trouble. Now, you could be absent, but you can have an excused absent, means that you have a note from your parents, from your doctor, from your boss, or the teacher just knows that you're not coming today and it's okay; it's excused. Now, the teacher will give you commands. He or she will tell you to do things. Okay? So, it's very important that you understand what to do. If a teacher says: "Put up your hand", or: "Raise your hand to ask a question, to make a comment, to ask to go to the bathroom", put up your hand. Raise your hand. Don't speak out. Because if everybody speaks out, it's just noise. Put up your hand, ask your question, get your answer. Okay? Then, the teacher will ask you: "Take out your notebooks. Take out your pens. Take out your earphones." Basically, get them ready, we are going to use them. Okay. "Take your seats." Basically means sit down, sit. Okay? So, he's trying to get organized, or she is trying to get organized. Next, they'll say: "Take out your book. Turn to page 37." Means open your book, page 37, let's start reading, working, etc. Now, if the teacher wants you to do things, but not alone... For example, if you're doing math, yeah, you do it alone no problem. If you're doing ESL, the teacher will want you to work in pairs. It means two people together, so you can speak. "Work in groups", means get into a few people together; three, four, five. If he wants a specific number, he will say: "Get into groups of", or: "Work in groups of three." So, you find your two friends, three sit together, do the exercise. Now, if the teacher... As everybody's talking, the teacher wants everybody be quiet and listen to one student, he will say or she will say: "Please pay attention to Jack. Jack is going to speak. Everybody, please pay attention to Jack." Or if you're doing exercise, if the teacher wants you to be careful about one word or one grammar structure: "Pay attention to the independent clause." Means be very focused, be aware. Okay? So, these are the basic things you need to know what... That your teacher will say. Now, you're the student, you have questions or you don't understand something, what are you going to say or what are you going to ask?
HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER
 
09:20
How to understand your cat? 🐱 How to make friends with your cat? 😍 Everyone knows that cats are the most illogical and unpredictable pets. Just try to work out what’s going through that furry little head! It turns out that cats have their own language, and if you learn it there’s a chance you’ll understand them much better. We’ve put together all of the possible cat behaviors to help you find a common language with your pet (well, if it allows you to). Also, we’ve prepared three essential tips that will help you communicate with cats better. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CAT • How to make your cat trust you Lowering your cat to the ground, make sure its paws have reached the floor. Your cat will trust you and know that it won’t tumble if you let it go. • How to stroke your cat If you sit on the floor with your legs crossed and look at your cat, it will interpret this as a friendly gesture and come up to you to let you stroke it. Also, stretch your hand out in its direction. Your middle finger should be a little lower than the others. The cat will start rubbing its nose or face against your hand. • How to make your cat appear A cat may go and hide and only appear when it’s alone or hears a calm voice. #understandcat #catbehavior #pet TIMESTAMPS Cat's tail 0:52 Cat's eyes 3:47 Cat's interaction with people 4:38 Cat gestures 6:14 Cat language 6:57 How to communicate with your cat better 8:09 MAIN CAT GESTURES • If a cat raises its nose up and throws its head, it’s saying, “I see you.” Cats often make this gesture to people walking past the window. Have you ever noticed it? • A cat might press its ears against its head if it feels scared, worried, or wants to play. They also do this when they are sniffing something that’s interested them. • When a cat sticks its tongue out slightly and licks itself, it’s worried or anxious. CAT LANGUAGE • Cats generally greet people or announce their presence with a short sound. • Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you’re away from home for a long time. • A medium-length meow might be a request for water or food. • A long sound (a mix of purring and meowing) is a more insistent request or demand. • A low meow is a complaint or indication of dissatisfaction. Also, it might mean your cat is ready to fight. • A loud sound often indicates an urgent demand (for instance, you cat needs more food). • A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy. Now you know how to find a common language with any cat. By the way, are you a cat person or a dog person?

Political vocabulary and expressions in English
 
08:20
Learn vocabulary and phrases so that you can talk about politics and understand the news! I'll teach you new words and expressions to talk about government, elections, and policy. Is the candidate for president in your country promising to cut the crime rate? Is your president proud of the economic boom in your country. Like the video to vote for me, Benjamin! Take the quiz on this lesson here: http://www.engvid.com/political-vocabulary-expressions/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there, guys. I thought I'd better dress up and put my glasses on today because I have decided to enter politics. Today's class, we're doing political collocations. "Collocations" -- what a long, funny word. What does it mean? Well, "co" generally means "with", and "location" is a place. So "with place". Political word that go together. So "enter", you often find with politics or center management or a new thing. Okay? "Enter politics." "Today, I decided to enter politics." Great? Got it? "To enter politics." Obviously, you can form this verb. "He entered politics when he was 17." So we can have the past, "he entered". Or you can have the future, "He will" -- you probably wouldn't say "enter", though. You'd probably say "get into". "He will probably get into politics when he's older." Okay? "He will" -- blah, blah, blah. So "enter", present and past, generally. Now, "to hold" -- "hold". "I'm holding a pen." You can also "hold" a general election. It means organize, make sure there is a general election, okay? So David Cameron will hold a general election next year or the year after. I should know. I don't. "To hold a general election." So often, we're going to use that with the future tense, "will hold". Or you could do it with the past tense. "A general election was held in 1992." So, "A general election was held." Okay? So you've got an irregular verb there. Now, "to stand for something". If you want to become an important person, you need to stand for positions of authority and importance. "To stand for the presidency." Yeah, I'm standing here right now, but you can "stand" for a position. So "to stand" for the presidency, if you're in North America. Or in the UK, we might say "stand for the position of prime minister". But normally, you would get voted. People are going to say, "You, you, you." Okay? You don't normally put yourself forward for the prime minister position. "To launch a campaign." I'm launching a rocket into space, okay? I'm beating the Russians. I'm beating the Americans. Benjamin, EngVid, launching a space rocket. Okay? But we can also use "launch" with a "campaign". Notice the funny spelling, the -aign, but it's pronounced "cam-pain". Okay? One of those words where the spelling doesn't look like the sound of the word. "To launch a campaign", a campaign. So I might put posters up all over London saying -- I wouldn't do this, okay, because I'm not, you know, an idiot, but, "Vote for Boris Johnson." Okay? I put a campaign. "Everyone, do this. Do this." It's a campaign. I want people in London to do this. A campaign. I want them to take action. I really wouldn't do that. No. "To win an election", okay? You "win" or "lose" an election. The labor party might win the next general election in the UK. That's my little prediction. Have a little bet on me. "To win an election", right? Okay? Win or lose it. You don't -- in football, we talk about winning or losing or drawing. You don't really draw an election, unless you're David Cameron, in which case you sort of have a bit of a partnership with Nick Clegg. Okay. "To serve four years as" -- of course, the number doesn't have to be four. It could be seven. So you could say, "I served for several years on a committee." Okay? So this is just a number that you put in and then what it is that you did. So, "I served five years as a trivia quiz host in London." Okay? I'm serving. It's an act of giving. I'm cutting up my meat for my dinner. But you can also "cut the crime rate". Yeah? If you're in an inner city ghetto, you need the crime rate to be cut so there are fewer muggings. Yeah? "Cut crime" -- yeah, this is bad activity. "Rate" -- how often it happens. If you cut it, it happens less. "To cut the crime rate." Now, I might want to leave politics. Yeah? We talk about "leaving" -- exiting. You wouldn't say, "I exit politics." "I leave politics to pursue" -- that's a lovely word. Let's get that up on the board. "To pursue" -- to do something else. Right? Good. Try and use this word. It's one of my favourites.

21:36
Check out popular three word English idioms with Max and Moon! 1.Bad hair day-Max storms into the room and throws his backpack on the bed.Moon asks Max what was wrong and he starts listing out all the things that went wrong today.Moon tells him he’s had such a bad hair day,which means to have a bad day in general. 2.Start from scratch-Moon is getting ready to bake cookies with Max.Max wonders why they just can’t buy cookies at the store and Moon said she wants to start from scratch,which means starting from the beginning with no preparation oradvantage. 3.Cup of Joe-Max sees a shop called Cup of Joe and is excited to go inside to get ice cream.Moon explains that there won’t be any because cup of joe is another way to say cup of coffee. 4.Burn our bridges-Max and Moon order take out and Max gets mad because they got his order wrong,again.Max wants to tell them that he is never, ever going back.Moon tells him not to burn his bridges,which means not being able to turn back or go back to the way things used to be. 5.Break a leg-Max is nervous as he prepares to take the stage in a school play.Backstage,Moon wishes Max good luck by telling him to break a leg.Max freaks out because he imagines Moon wants him to literally break his leg. 6.Nick of Time-Max loses a race because another competitor passes the finish line in the nick of time.Max thinks Moon is referring to Nick,the race winner.What she really meant was Nick won just in time,at the last possible moment. 7.Get Someone’s Goat-Max is playing a computer game when his screen freezes.Moon tells Max not having internet access gets her goat,too.Max thinks someone took a goat he didn’t even know Moon had.Moon explains that when you find something annoying,it gets your goat. 8.Keep it up-Max holds a book above his head.Moon asks why he is studying this way.Max says it’s because she told him to keep it up. Max took it literally,when Moon only meant to encourage him to keep studying. 9.Burst your bubble-Max is excited and proud because he will perform the first act at the school’s concert.Moon corrects him by saying that the first act isn’t the most important one,and that she’s sorry to burst his bubble,which means to suddenly ruin someone’s good mood. 10.Smell a rat-Max receives a message on his computer.The message says the computer is infected and Max must download special software.Moon stops him,telling Max she smells a rat.To smell a rat means to detect trouble or bad intent before it’s clearly visible. 11.Seen better days-Max is trying to fix his backpack with duct tape.Moon tells Max it looks like his backpack has seen better days,which means it was in better condition in the past. 12.Win hands down-Max and Moon play chess.Max puts Moon’s king in checkmate.Moon is surprised at first but accepts defeat. She tells Max he won hands down.Win hands down now refers to an effortless win and is used in many sports. 13.Wild goose chase-Max and Moon are at the zoo.Max is determined to find an exotic animal with two heads to win a bet with a classmate. Moon tells Max his classmate sent him on a wild goose chase,which means looking for something that you won’t find. 14.Spill the beans-Max is snacking on some jelly beans when he tells Moon he found something out today.Moon is curious and tells Max she wants to know.Max keeps asking if Moon really wants to know until Moon finally says spill the beans,which means to tell someone your secret. 15.Steals your thunder-Max tries to think of ideas for a school science fair project. He had one until a classmate overheard the idea and took it.Moon tells Max his classmate stole his thunder. We use the phrase to describe when a person takes credit for an idea or accomplishment that isn’t theirs. 16.Break the ice-Max and Moon are attending a school dance. Moon appears slightly uncomfortable by the refreshment table. Max attempts to comfort Moon by telling her that she just needs to smash some ice.What Max really meant is “break the ice”,which means to do something to ease a tense or uncomfortable situation. -- Out of This Word follows the daily musings of Max and Moon, two adopted siblings that love to use and learn popular idioms and unique phrases.

Say MORE with LESS: 2-Word Expressions in English
 
15:30
My pleasure. Allow me. Well done! Upgrade your English conversation skills easily and quickly with two-word expressions like these, used by native speakers every day. Today I'll teach you ten short expressions that you can learn quickly. The best part is that they are easy, and can be used in any situation – formal or informal; business, social, or academic. You'll learn how to give compliments, make suggestions, give warnings, and show agreement with your friends, co-workers, and strangers. Improve your conversation skills by saying more with less! Test your understanding with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/say-more-with-less-2-word-expressions-in-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. In the next few minutes you're going to learn 10 common expressions that you will hear native English speakers using at home, at school, at work, and in all kinds of social situations. These are actually very easy because they only have two words. Okay? Now, that means that you will not only be able to understand people when they use them, but that you, while watching this video, your goal should be to learn them and start using them yourself because they're really quite easy and they're very common. Okay? So, let's get started. Now, before we begin, let me just tell you that there are only five of them here. I'm going to show you five more in a few minutes. And these are not the meanings. This is for a little bit later-okay?-when we're going to do a little quiz. So, just stay with me and listen to what I'm saying, and then you can follow. Now, some of these are compliments, some are offers, some are replies to what other people say, some are suggestions, some are warnings, and some are just comments on something that's happening. And just to remind you: What's a compliment? A compliment is when we say something nice to somebody. Okay? All right, so let's get started. So the first one is: "Well done!" When do we say to somebody: "Well done"? We say: "Well done" when somebody does something really well, when we want to praise them. So it's a compliment. Right? We say: "Hey. Good job. Great work. Nice going." Things like that, all of these expressions mean: "Hey, you did a great job." So you could use it to tell your son or your daughter: "Hey, you did a good job on the exam, so, well done." Or you could say it to a colleague who did a successful presentation. You could just say to him or her: "Well done." Okay? So, that's the first one, when we're complimenting somebody or praising somebody on something they did well and successfully. Okay. The next one, it's kind of close, it's: "Well said!" So, here, we are also complimenting someone, but this time we're complimenting them or praising them on something that they said. So we say: "Hey, you said that very well." Maybe it was just one comment, maybe it was a toast to somebody, maybe it was an entire speech, but what you're saying is: "I really like what you said, you said it very well and I agree with it." Okay? So when we say: "Well said", it means you did a really good job in what you said. Next: "My pleasure." Okay? When do we say to somebody: "My pleasure"? Well, it's just like: "You're welcome", but it's a little more formal, it's a little more polite. It shows that I really enjoyed helping you. Okay? So, if somebody says: "Thank you", you can simply say to them: "My pleasure." Okay? And it's very elegant, it's very refined, it's very educated, and you will sound that way. Okay? Next. The next one is: "Allow me." So, when do we say: "Allow me"? Okay? So imagine this situation: Two people are approaching a doorway, and both of them are about to reach out to open the door, and then one person says to the other person: "Allow me." That means: "Allow me to open the door" in this situation. Okay? It means: "Let me do this for you. Let me do this." Not always, but sometimes men do this for women, but women can do it for men or women can do it for other women, and men could do it for other men. It's just saying: "Let me help you. Let me open the door", let me do something that's a little bit awkward. Okay? That's a little bit difficult, maybe, for the other person. Okay, so: "Allow me." It's a nice gesture. It's just a suggestion, it's an offer to help. Okay. The last one here is: "Help yourself." So, when do we say to somebody: "Help yourself"? Well, usually we say it most often probably when there's a lot of food and drinks on the table, and we say to somebody: "Hey, come on in. Help yourself." So what we're telling them is that nobody is going to serve you, you should please go around and help yourself, have as much as you like of the food, of the drink, of the desserts, or whatever. It doesn't have to be only food. It's often that. It could be other things, it could be materials. Maybe you went to a seminar and there's a lot of information on the table, and they just say: "We're not going to hand it to you, but you can help yourself."
How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky
 
14:13
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

Parallelism: The secret to great writing
 
13:42
Parallelism or parallel structure is one of the secrets of great writing. It gives greater balance and power to the way you communicate. It will help you get higher grades, improve your job prospects, and look more professional. In this lesson, I explain all about parallelism -- what it is and how to use it correctly. This easy but important lesson will take your English to a higher level. Follow up by watching my lesson on the Magic of 3 to strengthen your English even more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FcAub-xqGQ&index=94&list=PLxSz4mPLHWDZgp8e6i0oyXOOrTAAaj0O7&t=0s Take the quiz on this lesson here: https://www.engvid.com/parallelism-great-writing/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. This lesson is for you if you want to learn how to communicate more powerfully in just a short time. This lesson is about something called: "Parallelism" or "Parallel Structure". Now, in case you've never heard of it, or if you've heard of it but you're not sure what it is, I just want to tell you that it's something really important, especially in academic circles or in the business world. All right? And also socially. So, whether you're speaking, or whether you're writing, this principle of parallelism will help you to communicate more effectively. So, first of all, what is parallelism? So, it's a speaking or writing technique in which you communicate more powerfully by balancing different parts of your sentence, and I'm going to show you lots of examples so you understand exactly. So, when we create a sentence that has parallel structure, it means that when we have a list of items in our sentence, all of the forms of speech should be the same. For example, you have verbs, verbs, verbs; nouns and nouns; adjectives and adjectives; adverbs and adverbs. Now, that seems obvious, but in real life when people speak and write, they don't always do that. So I'm going to show you: "What are the benefits of using parallelism?" and also exactly how to use them in a sentence. So, some of the benefits that you will get when you start creating sentences with parallel structure are that your sentences will have more weight, they'll be more balanced, they'll have more rhythm to them, they'll have more style, more clarity (they'll be more clear), and also you'll be able to emphasize things more. And as a result of all that, your speaking or your writing will be much more dramatic and much more powerful. And you may not realize why, but it's really important that this parallel structure exists. Now, in addition, it's not just something to make it better, it's not just something to improve your communication. In academic circles, if you don't follow these parallel structure rules, it's actually considered a mistake in writing; it's considered very weak writing, bad writing, poor writing, and you will get lower grades as a result of that. Okay? So it's really important, especially if you're in the academic world or writing anything serious or in the business world, to write this way. Let's look at some simple examples first. Okay? So, this sentence, the first one: "Janet sings and dances." So here, what do we see? We see verbs and verbs: "Janet sings and dances." If somebody didn't write this sentence properly, they might write: "Janet sings and is dancing." Now, here it didn't match because this was present simple, so this should be a verb in the present simple; they should both be verbs, they should both be in the same tense, and so on. Okay? Let's look at more examples. "We enjoy reading and cooking." Here we have two gerunds: "reading", "cooking". Next: "I like to watch movies and to travel abroad." Okay? Now, you see how that seems really balanced? Okay? So we have: "to watch movies", so we have an infinitive and a noun, and "to travel abroad". "To travel", infinitive and a... Well, it's not a noun, but it's like a noun, it functions like a noun. Next: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." So here we have three adjectives. Now, up til now we had two, now we have three. And if you've watched my earlier lesson on: "The Power of Three" or "The Magic of Three", you will know that this is really special. This is like parallelism on steroids. This is like the best kind of writing you can do, and a lot of very famous leaders and writers write this way, using parallelism in threes to make things much more effective. So, if you haven't watched that other lesson, I will tell you where you can get it; it's called: "The Magic of Three" on our website. So: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." Three adjectives. "The police acted quickly and carefully." Okay? So we have here: "quickly", "carefully", two adverbs. And last: "We enjoy comedies, dramas, and documentaries." So you have here three nouns. Right? So that's what's important: nouns with nouns, adverbs with adverbs, adjectives with adjectives - you get the idea. Okay? Now, if you get the idea, work with me, stay with me. […]

10 GET Phrasal Verbs: get down, get off, get through, get up, get away...
 
08:50
http://www.engvid.com Get through this lesson without getting down. Phrasal verbs with GET are very common and popular in everyday speech. In this lesson we will look at the meanings of words like get up, get over, get through, and more. http://www.engvid.com/10-get-phrasal-verbs/ Hi again. Welcome to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about phrasal verbs using the verb: "get". Now, before I dive into this lesson, I just want to explain a few things. I've gotten many comments on www.engvid.com and many people tell me that phrasal verbs are very difficult. And I understand that, I appreciate that, but I want you to start thinking of phrasal verbs as vocabulary; it's just extra words you have to study. It's not fun, I understand that, but it's not that difficult either. You just have to remember and use, and practice, practice, practice like any other vocabulary you're learning. So today's verb is: "get". Let's look at some of these prepositions we have. "Get up", "Get down", "Get away", "Get over", "Get off", "Get on", "Get in", "Get through", "Get between", "Get along" or "Get along with". So we're going to go one by one. I'll explain basically what they mean. Sometimes they have more than one; sometimes two, sometimes three different meanings. And if necessary, I'll give examples. Oh, sorry about that. Okay, let's start with: "Get up". "Get up", two general meanings you're going to need to know. One is get up, if you're sitting down, if you're lying down and someone says: "Get up", it means: stand up, stand. Get off the floor, get off the chair, whatever. "Get up" also means to get dressed in a certain way. If you're going to a club, you want to get up all fancy and put on a nice dress or a nice suit for the guys. If it's Halloween, you're going to get up in a nice costume. We can also use "getup" as a noun. "Getup" means what you're wearing. "Nice getup" means: "I like your clothes.", "Nice suit.", "Nice costume.", "Nice" whatever it is you're wearing. "Get down", opposite of "Get up". If you're standing, get down or sit down, for example, so get down. If... If a baseball is flying your way: "Get down!" Duck, get underneath it. "Get down" in a slang way means like get down, like enjoy the music, enjoy the party. You know, like get down, dance, do whatever gets you down. We'll get to "Get off" in a second. You'll understand. "Get away". "Get away" means leave. But in a more colloquial way - "colloquial" means like everyday street English, not necessarily slang but common English - "Get away" means go on vacation. And when you go on vacation, you choose a nice getaway. A getaway is a vacation, like a planned vacation or a nice vacation destination, the place you're going to. So Hawaii is a great getaway in winter in Canada because it's cold; Hawaii: beautiful. "Get over". One, there's a... One meaning: get over something physical like there's a wall and you need to get to the other side, so you get over the wall. Okay? But that wall could also be a problem or an obstacle; it doesn't have to be a physical thing. Right? So you have a problem, get over it, move on, as they say. So you and your girlfriend had a fight, okay, get over it, move on. Continue on like nothing happened. Make up, kiss, whatever you do. Next day everything's good; get over it. Okay? That's the most common meanings of: "Get over".

10 Simple Ways to Tell If Someone Is Lying to You
 
07:57
How to spot a liar? How to figure out if someone is hiding the truth? We're going to reveal ALL the secrets of liars and help you recognize when you are being lied to and when someone is telling you the truth. Do you know how much lies go undetected? It’s 80%! Just think about it: you don’t notice 80% of all the lies that you hear. And anyone can be a liar — even your best friend! But don’t get too paranoid — there are some ways you can detect lies. What questions should you ask to reveal the truth? What kinds of behavior are suspicious? We're going to teach you ten simple tricks that will help you detect lies. Also, we will tell you about some facial expressions that signal that the person is telling you anything but the truth. TIMESTAMPS Vague answers 0:43 Laughing it off 1:21 Exaggerated honesty 1:56 Sympathy 2:27 Answering questions with questions 2:51 Freezing 3:24 One-man show 4:05 Hostility 4:33 Repeating the question 5:03 Avoiding the answer 5:44 Facial expressions that give away a liar 6:04 SUMMARY A smile can be a good way to find out if the person is lying to you or not: if the smile is real, the eyes should be smiling, too. In this case, you will notice small facial wrinkles near the eyes. However, if the eyes look exactly what they looked like before the person smiled, this is a worrying sign. Don’t judge by appearances! Liars can be very convincing, and yes, even gorgeous girls can be liars! And be critical of yourself! Even if 2 or more signs are visible, it doesn’t always mean that the person intends to deceive you. You should always look and listen very closely. Only when you are sure that at least five signs are present in the person’s behavior, you can suspect that they are lying to you. Otherwise, you will have a very difficult life not believing anyone at all… Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ SMART Youtube: https://goo.gl/JTfP6L 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

12 Phrasal Verbs about CLOTHES: dress up, try on, take off...
 
10:04
http://www.engvid.com/ Do you know what a 'phrasal verb' is? In this lesson, I will explain what a phrasal verb is, and teach you the most common phrasal verbs native speakers use to talk about clothing. I will teach you 'dress up', 'zip up', 'do up', 'wear in', 'kick off', 'have on', and many more! Phrasal verbs can be difficult for English learners to remember. Watch this lesson and then take the quiz, so that you'll remember them all! http://www.engvid.com/12-phrasal-verbs-clothes/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you some phrasal verbs about getting dressed and putting on clothes. Okay? So it's about clothes. What's a phrasal verb? A phrasal verb is when you have a verb and you have a preposition. So it's a verb plus preposition is a phrasal verb. Students usually hate phrasal verbs. There's so many of them in English and they're very difficult to remember. So, in this video, I'm going to teach you maybe 12 or 13 phrasal verbs that will really help you to improve your English. So let's get started. The first verb I want to teach you is: "dress up". Okay. "Dress up". What does it mean "to dress up"? When you dress up, maybe you have a hot, hot date. Maybe there's the boy or the girl of your dreams and you want to look good - you will dress up, meaning you will wear something that looks extra good. So, for example, right now, I'm wearing this sweater, not dressed up. If I wanted to dress up, oh, look here, maybe I would put on this nice dress. Okay? So dress up. Here's my sentence: "I have a date. I have a date. I should dress up tonight." Okay. "Zip up". So again: "dress up", "zip up". What does "zip up" mean? Well, I'll show you. Did you see that? "Zipping up" means you have a zipper and you pull it up. "Zip up! It's cold!" Mothers love to say this to their children: "Zip up your jacket so you won't be cold." Very similar to zip up, is: "button up". When you "button up" something, you don't zip up, you have buttons. So let me show you. So I will take off my sweater and I will put on a new jacket with buttons. Okay, so if I button up my jacket... Maybe... Where is the button? Okay, here we go. Just like this. Okay? So I buttoned up my jacket. Okay, good. "I should button up my jacket." The next expression I want to teach you: "do up". So all of these: "up", "up", "up", "up". If you "do something up", it means you either button it up or you zip up. "Do up" means the same thing as "zip up" and "button up". "I must do up my jacket." Means: I should button up my jacket, do up your jacket. Okay? It's all the same. "Have on". "What do you have on right now?" It means the same thing as: "wearing". What are you wearing? What do you have on? Pay special attention, the preposition is: "on". Okay? So tell me, what does Emma have on right now? Emma has a hat on. Well, it's not exactly a hat; it's a shower cap. I like to take baths, so this is for the shower. "Put on". "I put on my hat." Okay? When you put something on, it's just putting on. "I put on my hat." What's the opposite of: "put on"? Oh, I don't have it here. Well, you will see it in a moment. But I put on - "take off". I took off my hat. Next expression: "throw on". "I threw on my hat." Can you guess what this means? If I "throw it on", it means I do it quickly. Okay? "I threw on my hat and I ran out the door.", "I threw on my hat and I went to school.", "I threw on my jacket and I went to school." So it means you put on clothes very quickly. I'm going to take off my hat. I think it's a little too colourful. "Try on". What does it mean "to try something on"? If you ever go to a store and you see: "Oh, look at that dress. It's the most beautiful dress." I'm going to try it on, meaning I'm going to put it on at the store to see if I like it. So "try on" is for shopping. You usually go to a small room, a fitting room, and you see if you like the outfit by putting it on. So it's about stores. "At the store, I tried on a shirt.", "At the store, I tried on the shoes, I tried on the hat." So this is the expression: "try on". Again: "on", "on", "on", "on". And the first four were: "up", "up", "up", "up". It's very important that you use the correct prepositions. If I say: "Do down", or: "do in", or: "do off", these maybe don't make any sense or they have different meanings. So the preposition is what makes the meaning. So let me teach you some more expressions about getting dressed. Okay, so I already explained: "take off", but I wanted you to see how it's spelt. "Take off". I took off my hat, now I have no hat. "I took off my jacket." Means to take off your jacket. Okay, so it's the opposite of: "put on". I put on my hat and I took off my hat.
20 English Expressions with the Word  Mind
 
07:15
20 Different Ways To Use The English Word MIND The English word “mind” refers to the center of your thoughts, memory, and imagination. In this lesson, you’ll learn 20 common English phrases using the word “mind.” To talk about making a decision, you can use the phrase “make up my mind” – for example, “I can’t make up my mind about which movie to see tonight.” A variation on this phrase is “my mind is made up” – this means you have already made your choice and implies that you are not open to changing your decision. If you do change a decision that you made previously, use the phrase “change my mind.” For example, “I’d been planning to travel this weekend, but I changed my mind because it’s been a really stressful week – so I’m going to stay home and relax.” Speaking of stress, if you have a lot of thoughts, concerns, and worries in your head, you can say “I have a lot on my mind.” When this happens, it’s good to do an activity that is fun, different, or relaxing to help “take your mind off” your problems. For example, “I’m going to the gym – exercising will help take my mind off the final exams coming up.” When you see or hear something that relieves or eliminates one of your worries, you can say it “takes a load off my mind.” For example, if you are traveling and your luggage doesn’t arrive at your destination, you would begin worrying that your luggage had been lost. But if the airline later calls you and says they’ve found your luggage and will deliver it to your hotel, you could say, “I’m glad to hear that – it takes a load off my mind.” – because it has relieved your worries about losing your luggage. Another way to talk about relief of worries is “put my mind at ease” – for example, “I was worried about starting a new job without any previous experience, but my boss told me I would receive training during my first week – that put my mind at ease.” A more continuous state of tranquility is called “peace of mind.” This phrase is used when something helps you NOT to have worries. For example, “Having car insurance gives me peace of mind, because I know the costs will be covered if I get in an accident.” Two expressions you can use to describe people are “open-minded” and “close-minded” – an open-minded person is receptive to new and different ideas, and a close-minded person is the opposite – a person who doesn’t want to accept or consider new ideas, and who is intolerant of different beliefs and opinions. You can also say a person has “a one-track mind” if they tend to think about or focus on one subject all the time: “All Daniel ever talks about is sports – he’s really got a one-track mind.” A person who “speaks their mind” is someone who says exactly what they think, without changing their words to please others. Some people consider “speaking your mind” a good thing because it is honest and direct; other people consider “speaking your mind” a bad thing because it doesn’t consider how your words might offend or upset other people. To “give someone a piece of your mind” means to tell them angrily that you disapprove of something they are doing, or have done. For example, “I’m sick and tired of our neighbors playing loud music at 3 AM. I’m going to give them a piece of my mind.” An informal way to say that someone is crazy and irrational is to describe them as being “out of their mind.” For example, “You turned down a job with a $100,000/year salary?! You’re out of your mind!” If you forget something, you can say it “slipped your mind.” For example: “Oh no, I had a dentist appointment this morning, but it completely slipped my mind!” Another situation is when your “mind goes blank” – this is when you forget EVERYTHING and can’t form a single thought. “I was so nervous during my presentation; as soon as I started, my mind went blank.” All of the phrases you’ve learned so far use the word “mind” as a noun – but it can also be a verb, meaning to pay attention to or to care about. If you want to check if an action is OK with another person, you can ask, “Do you mind if…?” for example, “Do you mind if I open the window?” means “Is it OK with you if I open the window?” To answer this question and say it’s OK, the response would be “No, I don’t mind.” Again, remember that the phrase “I don’t mind” means “It’s OK with me.” If a person is being “nosy” – that means interfering in your life or wanting to know very personal details – you can tell him or her “Mind your own business!” – this is a slightly rude way to say “Stop being so interested in my situation. Pay attention to your own life instead.”

In this video I share hacks that help memorize thousands of English words per day and grow your vocabulary. 📝 Get your English text corrected instantly - https://fluent.express/ Related videos: 50 most common English phrases - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bj5btO2nvt8 - Best TV shows to learn English - http://bit.ly/2zI5DN2 - How to speak English like an American - http://bit.ly/2muNpcQ  📗🇺🇸 My book about how I got full financial aid to study in the USA (my story + tips) - https://goo.gl/fKwah2 How to learn hundreds of English words a day 1. There are words in English that work both as a noun and verb - so by learning one work your learning two -    work, drive, try, kiss, drink, dream, milk (доить), hope, love 2. Words that end with -tion would be almost the same in your own language, super easy to learn - ambition (ambicion, Ambition, ambitzione), motivation (motivacion, Motivation, motivazione). Dissertation, profession, portion, intonation, convention, sanction, concentration, delegation, illustration 3. Look for images for particular words - you will be surprised you’ve already used them a lot in your life. Sometimes words just remind you of something - a song, a band. Spear which is a weapon - I think of Britney Spears. Beetle = a bug, Volkswagen New Beetle car, which looks like a bug, gosling - is a baby goose - and you know who I am thinking about - Ryan Gosling. 4. Some words have several meanings - try to learn at least a couple of meanings to diversify your vocabulary - fire = flame, to let someone go (employee), date = going out with a loved one, date as a fruit, date as a day in a calendarmiss = to skip something, to long to see someone, miss like a girl 5. There are a lot of words that are almost identical in a lot of languages - aquarium, antidepressant, avocado, argument, sensor, caramel, control, cocktail, scandal, organism 6. When you speak it’s very important to remember the words, which I call a safety net - these should be learnt by heart right now. Words include - I, you, she, he, eye, female, etc. - they are all mentioned in my video - 100 Most Common English Words 7. Learn expressions - are you nuts? 🥜 save face, I am all ears, to feel blue- every day words form combinations that have a completely different meaning 8. Talk to yourself when you learn a new word or expression using it. For example, if you liked the video you can comment below “Marina, I was all ears!” Which means that you listened to the video really carefully and wrote things down. 9. Be aware of false friends. Some words in English might sound like a word a your language, but mean a completely different thing. One of the common words is Actual - in English in means current, related to present time. In Spanish Actual is real.Eventuell = perhaps, eventually = in the end ⭐ INSTAGRAM - linguamarina ⭐ LEARN LANGUAGES ABROAD - https://linguatrip.com 📷 FILMING EQUIPMENT VLOGS (outdoors): - Canon G7X - http://amzn.to/2l2aSfE VIDEOS indoors: - Sony A7R II (also perfect for instagram) - http://amzn.to/2DrCNTU - Sony 50 mm lens - http://amzn.to/2G2r4c4 SOUND: - Zoom H4n Pro (better than any built-in camera sound) - http://amzn.to/2DVJzyr - Rode video mic (when I have to use my camera to record the sound) - http://amzn.to/2BhkCKW 🎈PROMOS $20 TO SPEND ON AIRBNB - https://abnb.me/e/B2yx6PJZER $20 TO SPEND ON UBER - http://ubr.to/2k1B89L
