I’m going to share my own suggestions for your English study routine I’m going to share a special formula that I’ve created for my own study routine and what a study routine should be and should not be if you’d like to learn more with me in the complete go natural English course for Fluency and confidence in English. The wait list to join is now open. You can join the waitlist at gonaturalenglish.com Pre-reg you’ll get information about the benefits of the course and a notification when registration opens now Let’s talk about your study routine. What’s really interesting is that study routines are? Really not talked about in most English classes or any kind of classes at all Yet they are so critically important to successfully learning any subject So this is a very important thing to master a study routine Means time that you set aside to study Consistently a routine means something that you do over and over so it’s not a one-and-done Activity a study routine could refer to how you study by the hour The day by the week the month the year, but hopefully you’re studying more than once a year So we’re gonna talk more about how to develop your daily study routine It’s proven to be more effective to study a little bit Every day than to cram once a week or before a big event The idea is to make your routine consistent over time so that it becomes a habit Something that is easy and automatic for you something that becomes part of your lifestyle Let’s talk about what a good study routine is and is not you might think that a study routine is painful and boring but it’s not a good study routine is actually enjoyable and easy Something that you can do consistently over time So it’s actually better to commit to less study time That would be easy for you to meet and exceed Rather than trying to commit to too much study time and set yourself up for failure So let’s set you up for success if you think that you could dedicate 30 minutes per day to studying English well Let’s start with 20 minutes a day because that’s something that I know you will be successful at and then if you exceed 20 minutes and study for 30 You’re gonna feel really good about yourself. So it’s better to start shorts or small with your study time and develop consistency so that each day builds on the last a good study routine means you’re focused on one thing only you’re not checking social media or email or Reading something while you’re listening to something else multitasking is Really bad during study time. So make sure you’re not talking to a friend on the phone or Unless they’re helping you study, but you really have to be focused on one thing and the really interesting thing Is that the more you focus the last? It takes to master that task your study sessions should be building up Towards a larger goal over time one big mistake that I’ve seen a lot of English learners make is that they just sit down at their desk during study time without any real goal and they say Okay. I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes. That means I’ve studied for 20 minutes. Why am I not learning? Well, it’s because you don’t know where you’re going with your studies. You don’t have a goal in mind And so that’s why you’re not really learning Just having your butt in your seat at your desk is the first step, but after that We really need to have a plan I’m gonna talk more about that towards the end of this lesson and really your study routine should be enjoyable Some people think that studying has to be difficult. It has to be painful has to be a challenge Yes, it can be a challenge. But how about a good challenge? Have you ever enjoyed? Achieving something that was difficult I think actually we enjoy achieving things that are more difficult if it’s super easy Well, we still can enjoy them, but maybe not as much So anyway, you should make your study time enjoyable by having some Consistent enjoyable thing that you do while you study for example I enjoy having a cup of coffee or tea or maybe you start your study session with some music that you enjoy Preferably music that does not have lyrics in it because that can distract your mind while you’re studying so maybe some some classical music or electronic music that you enjoy a good study routine is not Actually super ambitious because this sets you up for failure Don’t write down in your calendar that you’re going to study for three hours every day when you know, that’s not realistic Make sure that your study time is super realistic and achievable For you in your present life Don’t try to do too much at once Because you might get burnt out and that is not the result that you want a good study session is not Just sitting at your desk. Remember we have to have a goal and a good study routine is Not painful. It should be something that you actually look forward to doing as I mentioned You can help train your brain to look forward to your study routine by involving a cup of coffee or tea or a song that you enjoy or Always have a special space that’s consistent for your study routine Maybe you make your desk really pretty by putting some pictures on it that you like for my own study routine I’ve created an acronym that spells used Too because I get used to my study routine and that makes it a habit. I Understand my bigger goals. I Schedule my studies for the same time each day that helps me to build a routine. I Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. I develop my skills over time I try new materials to challenge myself and I own my Results, I understand that I’m responsible for the outcome of my study sessions that spells used to So you could use this acronym if you find it helpful for you to here’s an example of how I would suggest You set up your English study time first write down your big English goals may be something like you want to be fluent in English so that you can give a presentation at school or at work or Whatever your big goal is don’t be shy write it down to break down that goal into weekly and daily Study sessions that will help you reach that bigger goal over time. Take your time with this again It’s better to write down your study sessions moving more slowly Than to rush yourself and maybe not give yourself enough time third choose materials that can help you reach your goals Watch go natural English videos or outside of go natural English. You could find TV shows movies Podcasts songs or other media in that help you to develop your vocabulary and fluency next test your understanding How much of these materials are you really understanding 5 try your own? Examples, of course when you’re learning English You don’t only want to be able to listen and read right? You want to be able to write and speak to express yourself as well? Now this is where you need help from someone else But there’s one way that I do suggest getting feedback on your own which is to record yourself Speaking because often when you listen to yourself on playback, you can catch your own mistakes similarly with writing you can Proofread your own writing and you often will catch your own mistakes This is a great way for you to give yourself feedback even before consulting your teacher next give yourself time to reflect on your Accomplishments how far you have come in English so far how much you have learned and then decide? what you want to learn tomorrow and Finally number 8 build each day after you reflect on your progress You can decide what you want to work on more tomorrow as you build a really successful great study routine be patient with yourself and Understand that when you enjoy the journey of building your English skills, you will be more successful More easily much faster it all comes down to building a good habit and a good study routine So, I hope that this was helpful for you.

Liam visits Bristol and St Nicholas Market – On the go with EF #95


Hello everybody.
Today, I’m in Bristol and I’m going to explore this great city
in the southwestern part of England. Right now, I am in Queen Square.
It was created in 1699. It was later on transformed
into a dual carriage way and there were 20,000 vehicles
passing through here every day. However, about 20 years ago,
they decided to take it back to its roots and make it into a park again so we
can enjoy it in its original splendour. I think that was a good idea.
Look how lovely it is around here. Did you know that Bristol has been
ranked the most sustainable city in Britain and the Sunday Times has named it
the Best City in Britain in which to live. It has also received the
European Green Capital Award as the first U.K. city to receive this award. Wow, guys! I’m excited for this. This is a very interesting part
of Bristol called Castle Park. It’s a very old building.
It was built in the 11th century and, I must say, it’s been very well taken care of. It’s quite interesting coming up
close to old buildings like this. You see that the individual bricks or stones are
very different from modern day brick buildings. They’re all very different sizes. This one is very small, some are long
and some are very big. But when they’re all put together,
they build this one, massive, beautiful entity. Apparently, this is a good place for kissing. Now we’re at St. Nicholas Market on Corn Street. It’s both an indoor and an outdoor market
that’s open every day except Sundays. It seems like you could find just about
anything here, so let’s go check it out. That’s pretty cool.
Maybe I can buy this for my mom. Here’s some jewelry as well if you want
to look a little bit swagged out, you know, with rings and stuff. Here are some nice earrings.
People like to look good here in Bristol. I see they’ve got some toys there if you’ve
got kids or if you just like playing with toys. You know you’re never too old for that. There are some nice little ponies
and a big, bad dinosaur. It’s like Jurassic Park out here. I do not want to drop that one. Also for those who are musically gifted, you can buy interesting things here … if you can actually play. You know, it’s a little bit chilly today,
so maybe I should buy some clothes. Does this suit me? Guys, now I’ve found something that I’ve
wanted for a very long time: a pair of cat gloves. Look how beautiful my hands can be. This is pretty cool as well.
They’re old vintage Star Wars figures. I’ve got a nice little Stormtrooper here.
I might start a collection. Now let’s check out the indoor market.
It’s very crowded in here. It’s a popular place. Here are some nice hats.
Oh, now we’ve found something even fancier. What do you think? Yay or nay?
Leave a comment below. It’s got a cowboy vibe, you know?
Like in a western. I think we’re onto something now.
This and this. I think I’m going to rock this whole look.
I think this is the new me. I like this one. I look maybe more sophisticated,
like the more cultured and cultivated Liam. No? Yes? No?
What do you think? This is quite funny. I’ve never seen this before. They’ve got dog ties just in case you want your
canine companion to also look sophisticated. I must say, they have clothes here that
I’ve never seen anywhere else before. They’re all very colourful.
There are some creative designers behind these. Now, we’re entering the food section.
There are all sorts of tasty things here we can eat. Let’s take a look around. I’m already salivating. My goodness, there’s a lot of good food here.
This looks good. Okay, time to eat this crepe. I’ve bought two different types of crepes:
one spinach and one chilly with different sides. There are some lentils and
beans and some type of sauce. Let’s try this. Very good, very fresh flavours. I like this. They’ve used a lot
of spice, which I like. It’s a very special market, this one.
It’s very eclectic. They’ve got things from the weird clothing
that we saw to cutlery, to this food. It’s a very unique experience. It’s been good! Excuse me for talking with my
mouth full, but this is very tasty. Apparently, Bristol claims to have been
built on seven hills, just like Rome. I don’t know if that’s entirely true,
but we are on one of these hills and, if we continue that way, by that tower, there’s supposed to be an amazing
view of the entire city. So, let’s go. It’s good exercise walking up this hill.
Let’s hope the view is good. We’re going to go inside this Cabot Tower and
then we can finally see the full view of the city. This is a very narrow staircase. It’s good to hold onto the railing,
too, so you don’t fall over. It’s quite high up. There are a lot of stairs,
but we’re finally at the top. Okay, the moment of truth. Wow. This is beautiful! It was definitely worth walking up the hill and
all these stairs to see this beautiful view. You can see everything –
all parts of the city from the left to the right. It’s a perfect moment to take a selfie.
Beautiful. That’s going on Instagram. This was my first time visiting Bristol and
it’s been really fun discovering the city. What do you like to do when you visit a new city? Comment down below and the best
comment can win this iPad pillow. It’s perfect when it’s cold outside
and you just want to watch some series. In the next episode, I’m going to be
discovering Bristol’s street art scene. So, make sure you subscribe so you

10 More Smart Words to Use at Work Right Now [Part 2]


Hey, it’s Annemarie with
Speak Confident English. Back in July I did a lesson on 10 smart
words to use at work and it immediately became the most popular lesson
that we have here on YouTube. So because I know that you love that kind
of lesson and I know that you want to have a variety of language that will
allow you to communicate professionally, sound confident and clear in your
English and be able to respond to any situation with the right vocabulary. I want to give you 10 more smart words
that you can be using at work today. And at the very end, I’m going to share
with you my favorite word on this list. The reason I love it is it
takes this really complex idea, this complex feeling that we all have, and it makes it super simple. So be
sure to stick with me to the end. All right. Before we start with our list
for today, I want to clarify one thing: When I did the last lesson, I noticed that a lot of people tried to
use all of the different words that I shared in one example sentence
or in a couple of sentences, and I want to caution you, these words are best used sparingly. What that means is to only
use them occasionally. If you listen carefully to native
speakers, including myself, you’ll notice that in
spoken communication, we actually keep our language very simple. When someone uses too many idioms
or too many high level words, too much advanced vocabulary, it doesn’t sound natural and sometimes
they even sound a little bit arrogant and I don’t want you to do that. So the words that I’m going to share
with you today are fantastic for growing your vocabulary and giving you a
variety of words that you can use: Both a combination of simple everyday
language and these more high-level complex words. But again, I want you
to just use them sometimes, not all the time and
not in every sentence. And that is the perfect introduction
for our first word today, which is the word adept. Adept means that someone
is highly skilled, they’re an expert or they’re well trained
in something very specific and for an example I want to help you become more
adept in your English speaking skills. Number two is the word ambivalent and
this is a word I actually use a lot because it’s often true for
me. When you are ambivalent, you are uncertain between two options
usually because you have conflicting or contradictory emotions about something
or you really just don’t care. Here’s a super common example in
my house. My husband might ask me, what do you want for dinner, Italian
or Korean? And I’ll say, hmm, either one. I’m pretty ambivalent.
In other words, I don’t really care. They both sound good. Number three is to deviate, which means to stray or go off course
you’re going away from the plan. In a business meeting you
might hear someone say, the deadline for this is tomorrow, so now is really not the time
to deviate from our strategy. Let’s stick with the plan and then we
can reevaluate once we meet the deadline. Number four fiasco. I love
the way that this word sounds. If something is a total
fiasco, it’s a complete, utter failure. It’s chaos, it’s messy, everything went wrong. This is definitely something you
probably want to avoid at work. You don’t want things to become a fiasco, but sometimes they happen.
For example, you might say, this partnership has become an absolute
fiasco. It’s time to give it up. Number five is another really
fun one. Flabbergasted. Have you heard that one
before? Flabbergasted. If you walk into work tomorrow and your
boss asks you to come into the office and immediately gives you a promotion
that you can’t believe and a great pay raise, you probably would feel
a little bit flabbergasted. You would be surprised, astonished, and even a little bit
speechless. Another example, I was flabbergasted watching him
explode at the meeting yesterday. That was absolutely
inappropriate. Number six, impeccable. Impeccable is flawless. There are no errors, no mistakes. Everything is perfect and in line, it’s a great word to use in
compliments. For example, you might know someone who
is an impeccable dresser, which means they always
look perfectly put together. Their clothing is smart, it looks great and it
fits them really well. You might know someone who’s
an impeccable presenter, lecturer or public speaker,
they speak flawlessly. Seven is another great one. Honestly,
this list today is so much fun. Number seven is the word kibosh. To put the kibosh on something means
to put a stop to it immediately. For example, if you have a strategic plan and you
start to deviate from that strategic plan and as a result it creates a fiasco. You might need to put the kibosh
on it. Number eight: egalitarian have you heard this one before? What
do you think it means? Egalitarian. It means that everything is equal
or there is equality for all people. I recently heard someone describe their
workplace as an egalitarian workplace and I asked them, why is your workplace
egalitarian? And they said, well, we’re all on a first name basis. It’s hard to know who the boss really
is. We all have the same office. There isn’t any status in our office. What do you think about that? Would you want to work in
an office place like that? Share your thoughts in the comments below, but now let’s move on to the next one. Number nine is zealous. Zealous means to be
enthusiastic about something. Sometimes even so enthusiastic
that it becomes fanatical. You become a fanatic about something. Do you know anybody who is
a zealous public speaker? They’re the kind of speaker that gets
everyone excited and energizes the audience or do you know anyone who’s
really zealous about following the rules? They want to do everything
exactly right. And finally, we’re at number 10 my favorite on
today’s list because it takes this really complex idea and it expresses it perfectly
in a small expression that combines one word and one number. It is actually the title of a book that
was written in 1961 by Joseph Heller. The book is Catch-22. Have you ever heard
this expression before? It’s a Catch-22 or I’m
in a Catch-22 situation. What this expression means or what it
describes are those situations when there is no good option, there’s no escape. You have to make a choice, but none
of the choices are good choices. There is no winning here. In English, we have an idiom that means the same
thing to be between a rock and a hard place. Or you’ll also hear
people say something like, damned if you do, damned
if you don’t. Again, there’s no good option. Here’s
a really simple example. I’m in a bit of a Catch-22. I can’t find anyone to
cover my shift at work, but if I cancel my doctor’s appointment, I can’t get another one for two
months. I don’t know what to do. I’m totally stuck. As you
can see in that situation, there’s no escape.
There’s two bad choices, and at the end of the day you’ve
got to make, it’s a Catch-22 now you’ve got 10 more
smart words to use at work, so it’s time to put them
into practice. Of course, my two favorite words on this list
are Catch-22 in flabbergasted. So my first question is, have you ever been in
a Catch-22 situation? What was it and what did you do? Tell me about it in the comments
and be sure to use Catch-22. The second thing I want you to do is
choose your favorite new word from this list and use it in your own example. Doing that will help you immediately add
it to your vocabulary so that you can start to use it in daily
conversation. With that, thank you so much for joining
me. If you loved this lesson, be sure to give it a thumbs up on YouTube
and subscribe to this channel so you never miss a future lesson. You can also share it with friends or
colleagues on Facebook or by email. And finally, if you missed it, be sure to check out the first
video I had on this topic, which I shared in July, and I’ll give
you a link to it in the notes below. Have a fantastic week and I’ll see you
next time for your Confident English lesson.

10 Words You Need Right Now to Sound Smart at Work in English


Hey, it’s Annemarie with Speak Confident
English and what is the number one thing that you probably want when
you’re using English at work? You want to sound smart and professional. So today I’ve got 10 smart words that
you should definitely be using to sound professional, intelligent,
and positive at work. And the best part about today’s lesson
is these are small changes that you can make. Sometimes a very small change can have
big results and that’s what we’re focused on today. So be sure to stick with me to learn
these 10 smart words and find out exactly how you can use them with example
sentences and be sure to watch to the end because word number 10 is maybe the most
important one that you need to know on this list. [inaudible] Let’s get started right away
with number one. Certainly. What are some of the most common words
that you hear when someone wants to agree with you or agree to a request? We often say words like,
okay, or no problem, but we use them too much
and they’re pretty casual. So if we want to sound a little bit more
professional and positive certainly is a great option. For example, if your boss asks for a document by the
end of the day, you could say, okay, or certainly, or a colleague
asks you to help with a project. Certainly I can do that. Number two, the word modify. Let’s be
honest about something. Most people don’t like change. Let’s say that you have a project at
work and just before the deadline you get an email that says there’s some
changes in the requirements. How do you feel when you get that
email? You’re probably not celebrating. You’re dreading it, you’re frustrated. Most people don’t like the word change. A better smarter word that
you could use is modify. It doesn’t have the same feeling
that the word change can have. For example, at a meeting, a colleague might say that we need to
change the way that we’re dealing with our customers and that sounds like you have
to change everything and nobody really wants to do that. It
sounds like a lot of work, so instead it’s better
to say something like, we should modify the way we
deal with customers at work. Modify doesn’t sound so
scary or overwhelming. It’s a fantastic word to use
in place of the word change. Smart word number three is complication. Similar to the word change, there is another word that no one likes
to hear at work and that is the word problem. There’s a problem with the
order. We have a customer with a problem. The boss has a problem
she wants you to solve. None of us like hearing those statements. The word complication is a great
alternative and it doesn’t sound as bad or scary. For example, instead of saying there’s
a problem with your order, you could say there’s a complication
with your order, but we’re working on it. It sounds much less serious. Number four is the word sensational. I’m curious, when you think of a word that native
speakers use to be positive and show that something is great, what
word do you think of? It might be the word awesome. Native speakers love the word
awesome and it’s a fantastic word. I use it a lot. I love it, but I want you to have the ability
to be flexible and English. I want you to have vocabulary that
you can adapt and use in different situations. And the word sensational is a fantastic
positive word that you can use in place of the word awesome. For example, if I didn’t sleep very much last night
and I’m feeling super tired at work and a colleague says, Hey Annemarie, I’m
going to go to the coffee shop. Do you want anything? I could
say, oh, that would be awesome, or that would be sensational. Smart word number five is
elaborate. To elaborate simply means to give more details and
there are many times at work when we need someone to clarify something
or give us some extra details. So if you’re in a meeting and a coworker
says something that isn’t really clear, you’re not exactly sure what
she means. Instead of saying, what do you mean? You can
say, could you elaborate? It’s much more polite and professional. Word number six is leverage. The business world loves this word. If you use the word leverage at work, you’ll definitely impress
some other people. What it means is to get an advantage.
So here’s a great way we could do that. If we modify our marketing approach, we can get some real leverage
over our competitors. We’ve used two words from our list there. I could say if we change
our marketing approach, we can get an advantage over our
customers. Or I could use these two words, modify and leverage to
impress word number seven, similar to talking about
problems versus complications. We can use ramifications
instead of consequences, a bad consequences when something
negative happens as a result of something else. And that word consequence
can immediately have a
negative feeling with it. So ramification is a great
alternative. For example, if your team is talking about how
to modify a marketing approach, you definitely need to think about the
pros and cons and what are some of the possible ramifications
of making that change. We’ve got just three more words on our
list of 10 smart words to be using at work. And word number eight is perplexing. I love this word. I don’t know why, but I love the way it sounds perplexing. You and I know that confusing
things happen at work. A customer does something
weird, files disappear. Someone says they sent you an
email but you never got it. In those moments you could say, I’m really confused about that situation
or I’m confused how that happened, but a great alternative is perplexing. That’s perplexing. That’s a perplexing situation
or similar to saying, I’m confused. We could say I’m perplexed. Smart word number nine is straightforward. Everyone loves things that are easy to do, easy to understand and straightforward
is a great alternative to using the word easy. Instead of saying something
like, this project is really easy, you could say this project
is really straightforward. Maybe you’re working with a new client
and you know that they’re going to be wonderful and easy to work with. You could also say working with
this client is going to be really straightforward and finally we’re at
smart word number 10 that you should be using at work. Kind of. This word is actually a word that you
should avoid and we’re going to replace it with something else. That word is like, like is used way too much. It has become a filler word, a word that we use when we don’t
really know what to say. In fact, sometimes I’ve heard the word
like used in the same sentence, two, three, four, even five times. This is a word that you definitely want
to avoid using because it doesn’t sound smart or professional. In fact, it can sound uncertain
when it’s used too much, but the problem is it’s a really
great word for some situations, like when you’re going
to introduce an example. Did you notice I just used it there
to introduce what I wanted to say. That is an appropriate
way to use this word, but because the word
like is used too much, I want to give you an alternative. When you need to introduce information
or introduce an example you could use such as or for instance, here are a couple of examples. I could say there are a lot
of opportunities like this
for our clients or there are a lot of opportunities
such as this for our clients. That one little change makes the
sentence much more professional. Another example, you need to be
really careful with this client. Like if you go to a meeting, make sure
that you’re early instead of using, like I could say, you need to be really
careful with this client. For instance, if you’ve got a meeting, make
sure that you’re early. Again, that little change is much smarter and
more professional and now you’ve got 10 smart words that you can start using it, work immediately and I want
you to practice choose one
or two of your favorite words from this list and use
it in an example sentence. Share it with me in the comments below. It’s a great way to immediately get more
comfortable with these words so that you can use them at work in
your daily conversations. If you found this lesson useful
to you, I would love to know. You can give it a thumbs up on youtube,
share it with friends and coworkers, and be sure to subscribe to this channel
so you never miss a future confident English lesson. Plus, I’ve got a playlist for you on
advanced vocabulary in English, including collocations. Collocations are words that native
speakers use together naturally, and you should definitely be using
them in your English as well. So be sure to check those out. And
with that, have a fantastic week. Thank you for joining me and I’ll see
you next time for your Confident English Lesson.

Do you work in an English-speaking environment? English at Work is the series for you


Narrator: Hi I’m Neil. Thanks for joining
me on English at Work – a new series of programmes set in an office, full of top tips to help you learn some useful business language which you could use in the workplace. In the next few minutes you can join me on
an introductory tour around one of London’s biggest imitation plastic fruit manufacturers,
called Tip Top Trading. We’re going to hear from some of the employees that work so hard
to keep the business running smoothly. So come on then! Let’s step into the office
and eavesdrop on Tip Top Trading’s possible newest recruit. I say ‘possible’ because she is still being interviewed for the job of Sales Executive Anna: Firstly, this job is an ideal match
for my skills and experience: I’ve spent several years working in sales and I get on
with people easily. Well, I mean, apart from the ones I don’t like of
course! Secondly, I know Tip Top Trading is one of the fastest-growing companies
in London, and I want to be part of that. Paul: That’s absolutely right. Tip Top Trading
is the fastest-growing company in the plastic fruits sector. Narrator: Well said, Anna! If she gets that
job I’m sure she’ll be an asset to the company. The decision is in the hands of Manager, Paul,
who we heard there. He’s a nice guy really, a little disorganised, but when things go
wrong he’s got to take charge a bit like this Paul: Yesterday was not a great day. Two clients
came in with serious complaints. Mrs Kumquat received a delivery
of imitation bananas that were purple – not very convincing, and Mr
Lime ordered grapefruits, but got pineapples. Tom! Tom: Yeah, listen… Paul: Were you responsible for these errors? Tom: Well… yes, but – Paul: Look, mistakes happen. But it seems
that Mrs Kumquat left our offices even angrier than when she came in and she
says she will never use Tip Top Trading again! Tom: I tried my best. Paul: Hmmm. Narrator: Ah yes, Tom! I hadn’t warned you
about Tom, one of the company’s top Sales Executives – he’s good… Tom: (on phone) Tom speaking. Yah! Frankie!
So what’s the latest, are we on? … but his interpersonal skills need working
on. Listen to this! Tom: My computer has crashed. I’ve lost my
phone. And there’s a big, BIG problem with my timetable. I have two meetings

Speaking English – DEAL expressions – “big deal”, “deal with it”…


Hi. James from www.engvid.com. And this lesson
is brought to you by Eddie Lucas Mens, from Facebook. Eddie, thanks a lot. It seems Eddie
didn’t know how to deal with it when he couldn’t understand when people told him, “Deal with
it.” So we made a deal to help him learn, okay? And Eddie said, “Deal me in, dude.”
Okay. So these are idioms that have to do with the word “deal”. Well, first of all, if you don’t know what a
deal is, none of this is going to make sense. And there’re two very important ones you have
to know. Funny, the second for the idioms is more important than the first one. And
the first one — well, you can see Mr. E, he’s shaking hands with a human. Okay. Because
he’s as big as a human. Human. I think that’s how he sounds when he speaks, “Human make
deal with Mr. E.” Sounds like a Russian on steroids. Okay. No, just kidding. It’s a bad
Russian account, I don’t know. So, here we go. Here’s Mr. E making a deal. It’s an agreement,
an agreement that must benefit. So when you make a deal, it means “it’s good for me;
it’s good for you.” It’s a “deal”, okay. When it’s not a deal it means something — one
person or a party is not getting something out of it that’s good. But funny enough — and
I should say this is the official version when people say, “We made a deal”, they’re
talking about this. But a lot of the idioms really have to do with this one, which is
funny: “to give out cards in a game”. If you like playing poker — you know, poker — and
there’s, you know, the heart card — there you go. You play a game. When you play that
game you give out cards. And when you give out cards — when you receive these cards,
you have what’s called your “hand”. And this is what you have to “deal with”. And that’s
what I’m going to explain. This is what you have to “deal with”. It’s what you have. You
don’t have anything else. You must make these cards work the best for you, all right? And
that’s what a lot of these idioms are about. So let’s start with it. You meet somebody.
And they’re in a bad mood. You might say, “What’s their deal?” It means, in that case,
“What’s their problem?” They got cards and maybe they’re, like, “My cards are bad. I’m
not happy.” And you go, “What’s their deal?” Of course, you don’t know their deal because
you don’t know their cards. And that’s where I have — has to do with giving out cards,
right? But it’s not just for that. When we say “What’s his deal, or her deal, or their
deal”, we mean, “What’s their problem, or what’s their situation”, right? You might
see someone drive up in a Mercedes looking good. You go, “What’s his deal?” He owns IBM.
Stocks in Microsoft — rich. That’s his deal. He got what we call a good hand in cards.
Everything is good for him, right? The other problem — person with the problem —
got a bad set of cards. All right? So next one, when somebody says, “Deal with it”
— I’m going to go back to the cards analogy. “Analogy” means when you take two things and
you try and, you know, you tell a story to explain something else. It’s an analogy. It’s
not necessarily true. It’s just to explain something. And I told you at the beginning,
and I’ll repeat: Most of these will have to do with to give out cards because we talk
about fate or what you’ve been given, and you must use. There will be one about dealing.
Don’t worry, okay? So when you say, “Deal with it”, once again, these are the cards
you’ve got, and you’re like, “It’s not fair. I don’t have the good cards. Johnny has all
the good cards.” And somebody says, “Deal with it.” What they’re saying is, “That’s the
reality. That’s the situation. It’s your problem. There’s nothing we’re going to do
about it. Stop complaining and just move on from here.” Wow. That’s tough isn’t it?
Yeah. Just deal with it. Next — remember we talked about cards? “Deal
me in.” Well, Mr. E’s watching the card game. James is playing. He sees me get money, and
he’s like, “I like that game. I want to be part of that game.” Well, then you need your
own cards. So somebody has to give you cards, right? That’s what we mean by “Deal me in.”
When you say, “I’m having pizza tonight”, and you go, “Deal me in”, it means, “I want
some pizza. I want to be part of it. I want to join the poker game.” It’s not poker, remember.
It’s just — we’re talking about cards, and that word analogy. We’re talking about one
thing to explain another. So someone says, “Deal me in”, it means, “Let
me be part of this.” Okay? So let’s go back to it. “That guy/girl is a
dealer.” Sorry. In North America there are two types of dealers. One is a card dealer
that plays the cards. He’s the dealer. The other one gives out drugs. Remember, “You
give out cards”; “You give out drugs.” If someone says they’re a cocaine dealer or a
marijuana dealer or a — I don’t know. I don’t do drugs. Seriously, I don’t do drugs. I mean
– no, I don’t. Then you’re saying they give drugs to people. They’re a “dealer”. They
give out like giving out cards, okay? Here’s something funny. This one will sound
like this one, but they’re not the same. See it says, “Deal with it”, then, “Deal with
it”? Not the same. When you say, “Who will deal with it?” We’re saying, “Who will be
responsible for it? Who will take care of it?” In this one we’re saying, “We don’t care.
It’s your problem.” In this one we’re saying, “We need someone who can take care of the
problem. Who can help us take care of it? Will Mr. E deal with it? Yes he will. He’ll
take care of the garbage and get rid of the dealer.” Okay? Now, finally — well, not finally. If somebody
says, “It is a big deal.” Do you remember over here we talked about, “So what’s the big
deal?” Right? What’s the big deal? I don’t know. Hopefully I did. Maybe I missed it.
No I didn’t, Mr. E just said. So I’m coming back to it. So what’s the big deal? I made a
mistake, right? I forgot one. We can deal with it. Evidently not. When someone says,
“So what’s the big deal”, they’re saying, “It’s not important.” You go, “It’s my birthday.”
“So what’s the big deal? You get older every year.” You go, “I care. It’s important to
me.” Another — something someone can say that’s similar to this is just go, “Big deal.
I don’t care. Big deal. So what? It’s French. Big deal. Not important. It’s another book. Big
deal.” So when you say this, you’re actually saying, “It’s not important.” The opposite
of that is this: “It’s a big deal. It’s very important. The president of the United States
is coming to Canada. It’s a big deal.” For many Canadians we go, “big deal.” Okay? So
opposites of this, “It’s big deal”, “She is a big deal”, “She’s a big deal. She’s Madonna.
She’s Madonna.” Or, “He’s a big deal. Superman’s a big deal, man. He’s a big deal. He’s got
a cape that’s red. It’s a big deal.” Okay? It’s important. Now, finally — finally, we’re going to get
to one which means, “It’s an agreement that benefits two parties”: “It’s a deal.” And
what I would like to do is I would like to make a deal with you to help you learn and
continue your English experience, okay? I’m sure you’re saying right now, “Deal me in,
dude. Deal me in. I’ll love this.” Okay? So, my man from Facebook — I forgot your name,
sorry. Sorry, dude. Where are you? Eddie? Okay? I’m sure you’re going to deal me in for
another lesson. You make the suggestions; we bring them out. It’s a deal. That’s how
we work here, okay? So where I want you to go is www.engvid.com, where “eng” stands for
“English” and “vid” stands for “video”, okay? Cool? You like that? So what’s the big deal?
I just taught you seven things in less than 10 minutes; that’s what the big deal is. See?
It is a big deal. Learn English for fun, right? Deal with it if you didn’t learn — that’s
not so nice, but I’m just saying. We’ll deal you in. And it’s a deal; we’ll work together,
okay? It wasn’t the best ending I had, but it’s an ending. See you later.
It’s a deal — big deal.

How to Sound Smarter at Work [Business English Vocabulary Lesson]


Hello naturals, welcome back to go natural English, it’s me Gabby your favorite American English teacher today I match my plants and today I’m gonna help you to speak more professional powerful English in the workplace you might feel Frustrated with being limited to really basic English vocabulary, but you don’t know where to start You don’t know where to begin to improve your vocabulary So we are gonna work on that today with 12 words that you should know To make your English more professional and more powerful This will help you if you’re in a job interview at the workplace in a meeting or in academic Situations like at your University now I don’t know if you knew this But I have been an English professor at universities in the United States and in Japan and I’ve also been a business English trainer at multinational corporations both Abroad and in the US so I am here to help you with your professional English Now we’re gonna take a look at twelve words Now the number one thing that you want at work or in any of these situations is to sound professional so using these words at least some of them will help gain you the respect that you Want and deserve. This is an easy way to sound more impressive in English and these small changes will make a big impact when you speak stay tuned until the end because the last word is a Replacement for the most unprofessional sounding word that you definitely want to avoid number one certainly, you can use this instead of saying yes, or Okay, which are fine, but very basic boring words. So to sound more professional Say certainly, for example, if your boss asks, you could you come to the meeting today? You can say certainly instead of okay, or sure Would you mind making some extra? Photocopies for everyone certainly certainly I can do that. Certainly. That’s no problem. Certainly certainly We can also use the word certainly to mean definitely for example This is certainly a wonderful English lesson Next many people are afraid of change And they really don’t like when they already did some work and then they have to change it so instead of using the word change, let’s use a more powerful more professional vocabulary word modify to modify Now we’re going to have to modify this Project timeline because we’re a bit delayed after some unforeseen circumstances Unforeseen circumstances is a bonus phrase That sounds very smart which basically means some things happen that you didn’t expect unforeseen circumstances we need to modify the schedule because the last speaker ran late so modify is usually used for schedules or Timelines you can also modify a report or an email to in our professional lives We all should have goals. But instead of using this very common basic word goals Let’s use a more professional version objectives objectives Another option would be aspiration aspiration but the difference is objective can be used really for anything a project your career or anything that you would like to achieve an Aspiration is really more about your personal dreams. So for example if you’re in an interview Your interviewer might ask you. Well, what are your goals for your Professional life and you could say my aspiration is to someday become department manager. For example But you can also say objective my objective is to become department manager you could say the objective of the project is to reach 1,000 people instead of saying guess which in and of its self can sound a bit weak. We should say imagine if you feel like you’re not sure about something or you want to share a guess say I Imagine that’s correct. I Imagine this would have good results. I Imagine that our boss would agree with this I imagine this project will take about one week where guests might make you sound a bit unsure Imagine makes you sound like a visionary Instead of the basic word think let’s use consider Consider let’s consider the possibilities. Will you consider? Modifying the format now if you’re meeting with someone and they’re being a bit confusing instead of saying what do you mean? Which can sound quite direct and not very professional. Ask the person to Elaborate to explain more to tell you more information or give you examples. Could you? Elaborate on that last point should I elaborate or is this clear now? Don’t say happen say arise Arise we’ve had some unforeseen complications arise Surprisingly no problems have arisen Should any questions arise please don’t hesitate to ask Instead of saying result which is already a good professional English vocabulary word Let’s step it up a level and sake Ramification now ramification is more specific than a result a ramification is a result or a consequence but ramification usually has a Negative connotation. So be aware of that. For example, if we modify the timeline the ramifications could be severe if you just want to say some positive results you could say consequence or Results result is just fine – but if you want to sound really smart and there’s something negative That would be the result use ramification. Don’t ask for opinions ask for perspectives or Prerogatives. What’s your perspective on this issue? What’s your prerogative? On this point, I love these words. Let’s practice saying them because they’re a bit tricky to pronounce Perspective pay attention to that stress perspective and Prerogative Prerogative when I hear this word I do Always remember the Bobby Brown song or also a Britney Spears songs So you could listen to those to practice your pronunciation Now perspective or prerogative are for asking an individual’s opinion But if you want to ask a group of people you’ll sound really smart if you ask what is the consensus now consensus means what do we generally agree on so you’re not asking for each individual person’s opinion You’re actually asking what is the general agreement here everyone? It seems the consensus is okay Let’s see if we can reach a general consensus. Don’t say easy. Say straight forward straightforward means simple uncomplicated or easy but it sounds a lot better when you say Straightforward than easy. It sounds more professional More powerful and more academic and smarter. So this project should be pretty straightforward I don’t foresee any complications now many people consider the overuse of the word like to be very Unprofessional so especially if you are in an interview or a professional situation avoid using the word like Especially more than twice in one sentence Of course we can use the word like it can mean many things but if you’re using as a filler like to like say Like when you don’t know like what else to say? It’s like really unprofessional So avoid using it as a filler and another meaning of like is to say for example If you’d like to learn all the ways that native English speakers use The word like you can click up there to watch a really great video where I explain every way we use it and how you should and shouldn’t use it now in a professional situation if you want to say for Example avoid using like because it’s so basic and so overused and instead say for instance For example or such at we should modify this designs colors For instance more green and blue. I would like this campaign to have more diversity For instance. The model should be different ages next week. We are going to be talking about how to ace any interview how to answer the most difficult interview questions using professional English, of course so make sure that you subscribe and turn the Notification bell on because these days it’s not enough to subscribe you won’t get notified You have to actually turn the notifications on so that you don’t miss out last week We talked about phrases that you can use and your business email writing and that video is right over here So I’ll see you there. Thanks so much I hope you enjoyed this video and I’ll see you there and then I’ll see you in next week for our Interview video lesson. Bye for now

Business English Meetings: Responding to Suggestions in English | Business English Course


You’re listening to the Business English
podcast for professionals on the move. Welcome back to Business English pod
today’s show is the second part of a two-part series on making rejecting an
accepting suggestions. In the first lesson you practiced making suggestions.
In this episode will look at appropriate ways to reject and accept suggestions. As
you remember the listening takes place in a sport shoe company called stratus.
We’ll be listening to Karen marketing manager meet with three members of her
team, Charles, Sven and Miguel. They are choosing a celebrity spokesperson for a
new product. Celebrity means the famous person. Here, spokesperson is someone who gets paid to
be in an advertisement for a product. Okay, as you listen pay attention to how the speakers accept or reject each other suggestions. okay now let’s talk about who we want to
use as a spokesperson for this product let’s go around the table so we use a
sports star or someone else and what do you think well one possibility would be
to use the famous overweight business executive for CEO someone who is really
successful sorry can I come in here yes go ahead McGill that’s a good idea
but I’m not sure it would work for one thing our customers want to be fit not
fat well then what do you suggest perhaps we
should just use a famous sports star what we usually do if it isn’t broken
don’t fix it you know what I mean we could try getting really good suggestion
but I can see one or two problems with that to be honest first off target
markets are in the UK and the USA we need someone who both Americans and
Britons really like secondly a target customer is kind of special I’ve got a
suggestion go ahead child is just like did but how
about choosing someone from the sport was normal to be heavy american football
for example heavy but agile overweight but strong and fast you know what I mean
right consumer what do others think yes it might be worth trying ok but what about the UK really good
reviews on this side of the Atlantic let me think about this show we try to find
someone in golf that’s popular in the USA and in the UK and that way we can
kill two birds with one stone to that idea that I think this would try here’s another good idea let’s tie the
dialogue to learn about accepting and rejecting suggestions first we’ll talk about rejecting
suggestions when rejecting suggestions it’s important to avoid hurting people’s
feelings let’s think back to Karen and her team and the dialogue during the
discussion what language do they used to reject suggestions they don’t like first
listen to Miguel reject spends suggestion sorry can I come in here yes go ahead McGill that’s a good idea
but I’m not sure it would work Miguel interrupts politely can I come in
here then he says that’s a good idea but I’m not sure it would work this is a good and caraway rejecting a
suggestion later Karen rejects Miguel suggestion if it isn’t broken don’t fix
it you know what I mean we could try getting really suggestion but I can see
one or two problems with that to be honest karen’s way of rejecting the
girls suggestion follows the same form first she praises the idea good suggestion then she politely
rejects it but I can see one or two problems with that to be honest here
adding to be honest to the sentence makes it even more polite you can add to
be honest to almost any rejection you can also use frankly speaking or to be
frank the same way let’s practice those together good suggestion but frankly
speaking I can see one or two problems with that that’s a good idea but I’m not sure it
would work to be frank to reject suggestions you can also say I’m not really sure about that and do you think so so now you learn ways to make
suggestions on ways to reject suggestions next we’ll look at ways to accept
suggestions Karen and Miguel like Charles Justin
don’t have Charles wants to use a sports star who is heady but advil Advil means
quick and skilful was listen again it’s just like did but how about choosing
someone from the sport was normal to be happy american football for example
heavy but agile overweight but strong and fast you know what i mean consumers
you may want to have a think yes it might be worth trying right I can see
what you mean and yes it might be worth trying are two ways to accept suggestions what
else can you say ok let’s do that not a bad idea yes that would work really well good idea great idea ok so today you’ve learned many ways to
reject and accept suggestions now before we finish today’s show let’s look at an
Indian Karen uses at the end of the listing let me think about this show we
try to find someone in golf that’s popular in the USA and in the UK and
that way we can kill two birds with one stone to kill two birds with one stone
is an idiom that means to do or accomplish two things at one time you
can say that way we kill two birds with one stone or that will let us kill two
birds with one stone for example what if I find one person to do both
child and McGill’s jobs that will get us killed two birds with one stone now let’s practice what we learn first
let’s go over rejecting suggestions politely you’ll hear a series of
suggestions each followed by a beat after each beep
use a polite phrase to reject the suggestion for example if you hear what
if we cut the sales training budget you can say well I can see one or two
problems with that idea for well I don’t know are you ready let’s give it a try what if we hold the meeting next week I think we should buy new computers tried to hold the training in a pub how’d you do listen to some examples to
check your answers What if we hold the meeting next week that’s a good idea but I’m not sure that
we want it I think we should buy new computers do you really think so I’m not so sure
about that let’s try to hold the training in a pub and Sir frankly speaking I can see one
or two problems with that idea now let’s practice accepting suggestions
after each beep use a phrase to accept the suggestion like okay let’s do that
or that’s not a bad idea how about we all go on an outing together next
weekend what if we hold a party to increase
morrow we’re wasting a lot of time is there any
way we can hold fewer meetings how did you do listen to some examples
to check your answers how about we all go on an outing
together next weekend and Sir great idea what if we hold a party to increase
morrow on so yes I think that would work really
well we’re wasting a lot of time is there any
way we can hold fewer meetings answer that’s not a bad idea it’s always a good idea to go back and
practice again this time substitute different language to build fluency in this unit we’ve learned appropriate
ways to accept and reject suggestions we’ve also reviewed usefully idioms
thank you for listening

Business English SLANG, IDIOMS & ABBREVIATIONS | Business English Course Lesson 7


– Hello everyone and welcome
back to English With Lucy. In this lesson, we’re
going to talk about slang, abbreviations and idioms. I don’t recommend that
you use these in your CV cover letter or interview. But it’s important that
you understand them and are prepared to use
them if the company culture seems modern and relaxed. Today I’m going to show you
10 slang e-mail abbreviations, 10 financial abbreviations and then six marketing abbreviations. After that, we’ll discuss
10 business idioms. (upbeat music) Let’s begin with 10 slang
e-mail abbreviations. Number one, TBH or LBH. These mean to be honest
or let’s be honest. To be honest, let’s be honest. Let’s be honest, the website
is in need of an overhaul. Number two, NBD, no big deal. No big deal. He can’t come to the meeting
but it’s no big deal. Number three V, this just means very. I’m very interested in
this business opportunity. Number four is def which means definitely. He’s def not attending the meeting. Number five, NSFW or SFW. These mean not safe for
work, not safe for work. Or safe for work, safe for work. For example, this attachment
is not safe for work, open it when you are out of the office. Number six, FYI, for your information. For your information. Now this one we do actually
say in real life as FYI. You’ll hardly hear anyone
saying for your information. An example, FYI, I overheard that Claire is getting a promotion. Number seven is ONW, on my way, on my way. For example, my train was late this morning but I’m on my way. Number eight, OOO, this
means out of office. Out of office. For example, I’m going to be
out of office all of next week. Number nine, LMK, let me know. Let me know. Let me know if you’ll be able to make it to the office party. Number 10 is BRB, be
right back, be right back. I have to shoot off
somewhere, I’ll be right back. In this part of the lesson,
I’m going to discuss with you 10 financial abbreviations. These aren’t slang as
such so you can use them in more formal e-mails. Number one is FIFO, first in, first out. First in, first out. This has to do with inventory. It’s basically saying when something is bought first, it’s used first. Number two, LIFO, this
means last in first out. This is the opposite of the previous where the last item bought
is the first item used. Number three ROI, return on investment. Return on investment, your
return on investment is the calculation of how much money the company is making compared to how
much money it’s spending. Number four, Q1, this
means the first quarter. You can also have Q2, Q3, and Q4. Each financial year is typically
divided into four quarters. Number five, YTD or MTD. These mean year to date or month to date. For example, the year to date return on the stock is eight percent. Number six, one of my favourites
actually is called TL;DR. This means too long; didn’t read. If somebody sends you a really long e-mail and you don’t have time to
read it, you can say TL;DR. TL;DR, it was too long, I didn’t read it. Send me something shorter. Number seven is ETA, the
estimated time of arrival. For example, what’s
the ETA on that report? Number eight is EOD meaning end of day. For example, I need that on my
desk by end of day tomorrow. Number nine is FTE meaning
full-time employee. For example, Lucy is a full-time employee. And number 10, our last
financial abbreviation is PTO, meaning paid time off. For example, please submit
your PTO requests by Monday. Now in this part of the lesson,
I’m going to talk to you about 10 marketing related abbreviations. Like the financial
abbreviations, these are slightly more formal and you can
use them in e-mails. Number one, B2B, B2B, this
means business to business. Number two, B2C, B2C, this
means business to customer. Number three is SEO, SEO, this means search engine optimization. This means creating and
structuring the content of your website so that it’s more likely to show up high in search results when certain keywords and
phrases are searched for. Number four, CR, conversion rate. Conversion rate, the percentage of people that convert into paying customers. Number five CPC or cost per click. This is your acquisition cost from a paid online advertising channel. It’s how much it cost to get
somebody to click on your ad. Number six, CTA, this
means a call to action. This is the part at the
end, usually at the end of a blog post, e-mail, or sales page that tells you to do something. For example, subscribe
to English with Lucy, that’s a really good CTA. In this part of the
lesson, I’m going to talk to you about 10 business idioms. These are slang expressions
that you might hear in the workplace or read in
e-mails, let’s get started. Number one, “at the eleventh hour”. this means “at the last minute”. For example, he submitted the
file at the eleventh hour. Number two is “to get the ball rolling”. This means “to start” or “to get started”. For example, let’s get the
ball rolling on this project. Number three is “to
think outside the box”. This means “to think differently”. For example, I really
think we need to think outside the box for this campaign. Number four, “to touch base”. This means “to speak”. For example, I’m going to touch base with the Regional Manager
and see where he’s at. Number five is “to circle back”
which means “to meet again”. For example, tomorrow
I’m going to circle back and see how she’s getting on. Number six is “to have
a lot on one’s plate”. This means “to be very very busy”. For example, don’t talk to
him about that just yet, he’s got a lot on his plate. Number seven is “an elephant in the room”. This is “a difficult subject”. For example, let’s address
the elephant in the room and discuss the redundancies. Number eight is “a no-brainer”. This means “a logical solution”. For example, the merger is a no-brainer. Our budget will increase ten-fold. Number nine is “to get
back to the drawing board”. This means “to start again”. For example, he doesn’t like the draughts so we need to get back
to the drawing board. And the last business idiom
is number 10, “to reach out”. This means “to contact someone”. For example, I’m going to reach out to the marketing department
and devise a plan. Now I’m going to test you on what you’ve learned from this lesson. I’m going to show you an abbreviation. I’ll give you some time to
think about what it means and then I’ll show you the answer. Let’s get started, number
one, what does this mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) The answer is no big deal, no big deal. Number two, what does this one mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) The answer is the
estimated time of arrival. And how about this one? (clock ticking) (gong banging) These mean year to date or month to date. Number four, what does this one mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) This means a call to action. Number five, what do you
think about this one? (clock ticking) (gong banging) This means business to business. Number six, what does this one mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) This means out of office, out of office. Number seven. (clock ticking) (gong banging) PTO meaning paid time off. Number eight, what does this mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) These mean not safe for
work or safe for work. Number nine, what do you
think about this one? (clock ticking) (gong banging) FYI, for your information,
for your information. And number 10, what does this one mean? (clock ticking) (gong banging) V, this just means very. That was the quiz, how did you do? Make sure you share your scores in the comment section down below. If you missed any, feel free
to skip back and watch again. That’s it for this lesson. I hope you enjoyed it and I
hope you learnt something. Don’t forget to connect with
me on all my social media. I’ve got my Facebook,
I’ve got my Instagram and I’ve got my Twitter. And I shall see you soon
for another lesson, muah. (upbeat music)
