Study English – Series 3, Episode 2: Writing Task Response

{“en”:”Hello, and welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation. I’m Margot Politis. Today we’ll look at the Writing Task in the essay section of both the general and academic IELTS tests. IELTS essay topics are of general interest and relate to current issues in society. You can expect to be asked about: The media, education, environment, health, communication, technology and society. Being familiar with issues in these general areas is important. Listening to English language media will help you develop a bank of ideas on topics like this. An issue in health could be about children eating too much and not exercising enough. You could be asked to discuss a statement such as: Children’s eating habits and lifestyles today are more likely to be harmful than beneficial. You should know the essay instructions. These tell you how much time you have and how much you need to write. You are instructed to spend about 40 minutes writing the essay, which has to be at least 250 words.

With practice you’ll know without counting what your 250 words look like. You will also be asked to give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your knowledge or experience. This is one of the instructions, so you need to follow it. Reasons are saying why you think something is true or not. You could write: An increasing number of children are becoming obese because they are eating too much junk food. Reasons are supported by examples, like this: For example, aggressive marketing of such foods towards children is one of the contributing factors. Relevant examples are examples like this that are clearly connected to the question. Now let’s look at an essay question, and how to analyse it before you write your answer. How well you do this will help with your task response, which is one of the criteria used to assess the essay. Let’s look at a question topic. Here’s a typical statement: The ageing populations of more developed countries are going to cause social and economic problems for society in the future, especially for the younger generation.

With this is something called the question task: To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? The essay question is always presented in this way as a statement followed by the question task. First, let’s look at the statement. Read it carefully. The ageing populations of more developed countries are going to cause social and economic problems for society in the future, especially for the younger generation. You should ask yourself ‘who or what must I write about?’ Here, you have to say something about ageing populations, developed countries, society in the future and the younger generation. Highlight these and any other key phrases, such as ’cause social and economic problems’. Think about what these phrases mean. Thinking of synonyms or words that mean something similar can help you do this. And you will need these synonyms later in your essay. Synonyms for ageing populations are: the elderly, retired people, the aged and pensioners.

They’re the people living longer or ageing. Developed countries – refers to modern industrial societies that have to financially support retired people. Synonyms are: western countries, first world countries and advanced economies. Social and economic problems are two kinds of problems. Social problems are problems that affect people, perhaps in areas such as health and education. Economic problems are problems to do with the economy of a country and its ability to pay for the services it provides. Society in the future means the country or nation or state in the future. And the younger generation are younger people or people who work. They’re the people who are not yet part of the ageing population. So you can rephrase or paraphrase the question like this: The younger generation will experience social and economic difficulties because people are living longer. The next thing to look at is the question task: To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? ‘To what extent’ means by how much. Here you’re being asked to give your opinion about the statement. You might agree with it or you might think it is wrong.

It’s a good idea to reword this type of question into a ‘yes/no’ question like this: Do you agree that the younger generation will experience social and economic difficulties because people are living longer? Yes or no? You could think, yes, I agree completely or perhaps yes, I agree with some of this, but disagree with other parts of it. But keep in mind that asking how much you agree or disagree tests your ability to look at 2 sides of an issue and present a balanced argument. Even if you say yes and agree completely, you still have to look at the other side of the argument and think about why someone would disagree. You would need to write two body paragraphs in an essay of this type, one saying what you agree with and one saying what you disagree with. In the conclusion of your essay you would state your position on the topic.

Let’s look at another question. Internet access should be under government control to avoid any potential harm to children. Who or what must you write about? The internet, government and children. Now highlight other key phrases – under government control, avoid any potential harm. Let’s think of synonyms. We know what the internet is, but what other words can we use? – the net, the web, online, cyberspace.

Under government control means controlled by the government. Other words for government are the state or the administration. Potential harm means bad things that might happen. Synonyms for potential are possible or likely. And other words for harm are: damage and hurt. So we could paraphrase this statement as: The state should control access to the web to avoid possible damage to children. The same question task we looked at earlier can be used: To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? You are being asked for your opinion. What you need to do here is say what you think.

The state should control access to the web to avoid possible damage to children. Yes or no? Now you should think about reasons for your point of view and why you don’t agree with the opposite view. So, to recap. The way you respond to the question and the instructions is part of what you are being marked on. The examiners call it task response. Make sure you follow the instructions and write the correct number of words.

And Canada years to settle their dispute over tobacco taxes arbitration to arbitrate contracted parties that have a disagreement will usually try to reach a solution out of court through arbitration wanting to avoid a costly legal battle the two companies agreed to arbitration damages to award damages if the contracted parties can’t settle their dispute through arbitration they may go to court in this case a judge may award damages usually in the form of money to the party that is able to prove their claim the judge awarded damages to the complainant after a lengthy court case now it’s your turn to practice some of the words we’ve studied in this lesson in a moment you’ll hear a series of sentences with a word replaced with a beep repeat each sentence including the missing word for example if you hear I met with the buyer in my lawyer’s office to sign the you can say I met with the buyer in my lawyer’s office to sign the contract we’ll play the correct answer after each question ready let’s give it a go we wanted to settle the out of court to save money answer we wanted to settle the dispute out of court to save money I decided to refuse there because the price wasn’t right answer I decided to refuse the offer because the price wasn’t right a contract becomes legal immediately after answer a contract becomes legal immediately after acceptance we celebrated when the judge decided to award us answer we celebrated when the judge decided to award us damages that’s all for this episode of video vocab the first in our series on contract law be sure to check out our website at www.att.com/biz nough Singlish vocabulary thanks for watching and see you again soon”}

Learn English: The 2 ways to pronounce ‘THE’

{“en”:”Hello. I’m Gill from engVid, and today’s lesson is about the little word “the”, and how to say it, how to pronounce it. You might think: “What? I know how to pronounce that word”, but there are two different ways of pronouncing it, and this lesson is designed to show you how to work out which way to say it. Okay. So, the simple rule is: Before a consonant you say “thuh”, but before a vowel sound you say “thee”. So it’s either “thuh” or “thee”.

So, let me just go through some examples to show you how that works. So, before a consonant sound: “thuh”. “The banana”, “the dog”, but then we get our first exception, which is confusing because this word begins with an E which is a vowel letter, but the way it’s pronounced, it has a “ya” at the beginning: “Ya. European. European”, so we say: “Thuh European”, okay? So that’s a slight confusion to be aware of. Continuing on: “The flowers”, “the house”, “the man”, “the people”.

Another exception again because this word begins with a U, which is a vowel letter, but the actual sound when you say this sound is a “ya”, “university”, “university”. It’s not: “university”, it’s “university”. So: “thUH university”, okay? And finally: “The woman, the woman”. So that’s “the” before a consonant sound. So, let’s have a look at the other column. Before the vowel sound we say “thee”, so: “The apple”, “the elephant”, “the ice cream”, “the orange”, “the umbrella”. You can see here “umbrella” also begins with a U, just like “university”, but it’s not pronounced: “yumbrella”, it’s pronounced: “umbrella”, so: “thee umbrella, the umbrella”. Okay. And finally, here’s another funny one, it begins with an H, so you might think: “Well, that’s a consonant”, but it is actually a vowel sound because we don’t pronounce the H in this word.

You may know the word “heir”, which we had in another lesson about using “a” and “an”. The heir is usually, well, male, and the heiress, female; but often the word “heir” is used for female as well nowadays for reasons of equality. So, but: “the heiress”, “e”, so it’s an “e”, “heiress”, so that’s a vowel sound, so: “the heiress”. Okay? So that’s another one to remember, along with the “ya” sound here. So, it’s purely the way you say it which decides whether it’s “thuh” or “thee”. Okay? So now we’ll move on to a second screen, and we’ll do some sentences for you to work out how to pronounce each time the word “the” or “the” appears, so… Okay, so what I should have said at the end of the last section was the word “heir” and “heiress”, I didn’t explain what they meant. So, if you hadn’t seen the other lesson you wouldn’t… You might not know that, so “an heir” or “an heiress” is someone who inherits something, often money or property, something like that. So, okay. Right, so here is the test for you of how to pronounce the word “t-h-e”: “thuh” or “thee”, and as you can see, we have some sentences here.

And every time the word appears I’ve underlined it in red just to help you to see it. So, first sentence: “The ferry crossed the Irish Sea.” So, how would you pronounce the word there? Okay. So: “thuh” goes before a consonant sound, so “f” is a consonant, so: “Thuh fairy. The fairy crossed”, and what about this one? “I” is a vowel sound, so it’s “thee Irish Sea, the Irish Sea”. So: “The fairy crossed the Irish Sea.” Okay? Next one: “The right way is the only way.” Okay, so how would you pronounce those two? So, “r” is a consonant, so: “Thuh right way. The right way is”, “only”, that begins with an “o”, which is a vowel, “only”.

So: “thee only way. The right way is the only way.” Okay? Next one, we have three examples in this sentence, so: “The answer is at the back of the book.” So, what would you do there? “The answer, the back, the book”, so “answer” begins with “a”, which is a vowel, so it’s: “Thee answer. The answer is at”. “Back” and “book” begin with “b”, which is a consonant, so: “Thuh back of thuh book.” Okay. Next one: “The fire hasn’t reached the upper floor”. “Upper” means at the top of the building, up at the top. Okay, so: “fire” begins with an “f”, so that’s a consonant, so: “thuh fire. The fire hasn’t reached”, “upper” begins with “u” which is a vowel sound, so it’s: “thee upper floor. The fire hasn’t reached the upper floor.” Okay. Right. Next one: “The girl felt at home in the empty house.” So if you feel at home, you feel comfortable, you like your surroundings.

Okay. So: “girl” begins with “g” which is a consonant, so: “thuh girl. The girl felt at home in”, “empty” begins with “e” which is a vowel, so: “thee empty house. The girl felt at home in the empty house.” Okay. Next one: “I will join the union in the morning.” So, “union” is a… To do with your profession, for your employment rights and so on, and you pay a subscription to join. So: “I will join”, “union” begins with a “u” which is a vowel sound, so…

Ah, no, hang on. This is one of those exceptions. “Yunion”, so… I nearly caught myself out there. It’s a “ya” sound, so: “thuh union”. It’s not “thee” onion, because “onion” is a different word altogether, with an “o”, an onion is a vegetable, so this is the union. Okay, so: “I will join thuh union in”, “m” consonant, “thuh morning, the morning”. Okay. So that’s a funny little exception, there. Next one, say you’re in a big department store with lots of floors and they have escalators going up and down, and you can’t decide which department to go to first, so you’re with a friend, you might say: “Shall we take the up escalator or the down escalator?” Okay, so which one would you use? “Thuh” or “thee”? So, before “up”, “up”, letter “u” is a vowel sound, “up”, so it’s: “thee up, the up”.

“Shall we take the up escalator or”, then before “down”, “d” is a consonant, so: “thuh, the down escalator”. Okay? And then finally, here’s another one, a little exception because there’s an “h” here, which is not pronounced. So the word “honour”, “honourable”, it sounds like an “o”, we don’t pronounce the “h”, so: “It’s the honourable thing to do.” Which? Which would you use there? Okay, so: “It’s thee honourable”, this one. “…the honourable thing to do”. Okay, so I’m sure you got those all right, and we also have a quiz for you to test that a little bit further on the website, www.engvid.com, so do go to that and try that, see how many points you can get. And see you again soon. Okay. Bye for now.. “}

U.S. Money: Do you have change for a dollar? – English Language Notes 24

{“en”:”Can you name these coins? This is a penny. Itu2019s worth one cent. A nickel is five cents. A dime is ten cents. A quarter is twenty-five cents. In the U.S., quarters are the most useful coins to carry these days, but sometimes we donu2019t have any on us. I asked my Twitter followers to identify this object. Do you know what itu2019s called? Itu2019s a coin change machine or simply a change machine. Itu2019s very convenient when you need coins, but only have bills. In this lesson, letu2019s talk about how you can ask for change. And I don’t mean the kind of change we make to the world around us. I mean making change, like one set of money for another. One large bill for smaller denominations.

There are many coin-operated machines, like… gumball machines, candy machines, laundry machines, arcade games… small rides like a carousel or merry-go-round. I often need coins for vending machines when I want to buy a snack or cold drink. So how does a change machine work? Help me out. “Insert” is a fancy word for “put in.” And “dispense” means “to give.” Basically, with a change machine you go from bills to coins. Four quarters make a dollar, so if you insert a five-dollar bill, how many quarters will the machine dispense? Can you do the math? But what if there isn’t a change machine around?What can you ask someone? It isn’t always appropriate to go up to a stranger and ask for change, but you could go up to someone who’s working at a cash register. Here are some useful ways to ask for change: Okay. How about asking for smaller bills. You only have a twenty-dollar bill, for example, and you need smaller bills like ones and fives. Or maybe you need two tens. What can you ask? This kind of situation might happen at the cash register. In the U.S, we also have rolls of quarters.

So at the bank, you can give a ten-dollar bill and ask for a roll of quarters. Many drivers keep quarters in their car to feed the parking meters. If you get asked for change or if someone asks you to break a large bill and you can’t, just say something like this: By the way, do you carry a lot of cash on you? I bet some of you are already making payments with your smartphones. Let me know in the comments. And by the way, while we’re talking about money, have you seen my grandmotheru2019s coin collection? It has some interesting pieces. If you’d like to see U.S. and foreign currency AND practice intonation patterns, click on the link to that lesson. Thatu2019s all for now. If you found this helpful, then please like this video and perhaps you could share it with someone else learning English. As always, thanks for watching and happy studies!. “}

June is here! – LIVE ENGLISH – From the birthplace of the English language – with Mr Duncan 1/6/18

{“en”:”So here we are oh it’s a new month has arrived I can’t believe it and Here I am now with you live as live can be here we go then it is what is it today it’s Friday it feels very unusual to be here on a Friday but look outside look at the day we are having it’s a glorious day and June is here it is June the 1st the first day of a new month and I thought hmm I thought it would be a good idea to go outside and do something live because the weather is quite nice although having said that there is a forecast for thunder and rain later on today so I’m not really sure whether or not I’m going to be staying out here for a very long time because it looks as if there might be some rain coming so we will see what happens but for now the Sun is in the sky everything is alright even though now and again there are some black clouds hanging overhead some storm clouds are floating by right now so here we go then but the big question is is where am i oh ok then if you insist hi everybody this is mr.

Duncan in England how are you today are you ok I hope so are you happy I hope so so I thought why not why not do a live stream on the first day of June and it does feel quite summery today even though as I just mentioned there is a little bit of rain in the air so I’m taking a bit of a risk here going outside on what can only be described as a very hot and humid day it’s ever so humid here it’s really really hot so a lot of people already on the live chat I can’t believe how many people already are here on the live chat so let’s say hello shall we so hello to Alamgir who is first on the live chat today so hello to you and welcome welcome to my special live English outside it’s a very warm day very muggy so Alamgir Husein congratulations you are first on the live chat Attila is also here today hello Attila hi mr.

Duncan the reason why I’m doing this today is because it’s a brand new month and I’m thinking of doing some regular surprise live streams during the month of June so besides my normal live streams I’m also thinking of doing something slightly different during this month by giving you some lovely surprise live streams especially if the weather turns out to be nice because if the weather is nice then it might be a good opportunity to actually go outside all I’m thinking at the moment is I hope it doesn’t start raining but I have planned for that so if it does start raining I’m going to play a video and then I will move my things inside so just in case it decides to start raining I do have a back-up plan the other night something very exciting happened we had some Bulls arrive at the back of the house so some Bulls have arrived and there at the back although today they’ve disappeared can you believe it I was hoping to capture them live on camera but unfortunately they have decided to wander off that’s not very good is it the live chat is starting to get very busy Kunal is here apparently it’s Children’s Day today I did not know that here in the UK it is a special day because it’s national fish and chip day it is one of the most famous English meals a lot of people associate this country England with fish and chips so here in the UK it is national fish and chip day Thank You Albert it’s not my first time I’ve been watching you for quite a long time but I don’t comment regularly well Albert you are more than welcome to say hello any time – is here it is my first time mr.

Duncan to talk to you on the live chat well all I can say is welcome welcome Aurora hello Aurora mr. Duncan I’m at the gym unfortunately I can’t watch because it’s Friday morning well all I can say is I’m very pleased to hear that you have decided you have decided to keep fit I like that you are very active first thing in the morning I wish I was amrwardy I believe you need to manage the clock on this video it says the 30th of May yes it probably does let’s just get rid of that shall we that is my automatic date which comes up and sometimes sometimes it isn’t right yes it’s true you are you are correct there so all I have to do is watch this is if by magic I can actually change the date even though you can’t see it but I’m going to change the date see look how professional I’m trying to be there it is that’s Beth sir yes oh that’s much better let’s just make sure it’s right yeah the date is now right it is definitely the first of June there it is I’ve corrected it now thank you for noticing by the way KATU is here hello mr.

Duncan it’s my first time okay then welcome you are more than welcome to join in and don’t forget I am live every Wednesday from p.m. UK time and also every Sunday from p.m. UK time summer cookie says it’s my first time normally I’m a shy girl and I don’t believe that I’m here you are now live summer cookie you are now live and I like your name by the way because I like summer and I also like eating cookies hi Trin hi Albert hi Amory and hi everyone from TS hello TS thanks for joining me today I think you are watching in Indonesia so far away I’m going to guess that the weather in Indonesia is very similar to here it’s very hot and very humid here today so I thought just to get us all in the mood I thought we would have a little replay of something I did a while ago and because there is no mr.

Steve today unfortunately so because mr. Steve is away busy working I am on my own so I thought it would be fun to show one of my past videos with mr. Steve so here we are doing something in the kitchen but the big question is what are we doing oh hello there well welcome to the kitchen it’s mr. Duncan and a mr. Steve come over here it’s over there so here we are in the kitchen what are we going to do we are going to make some tea cakes but we’re not actually making them we’re going window we’re going to put them in the toaster we’re going to toast them toast of the tea cakes that we have previously purchased from a local bakery and here they are here are the tea cakes look at that are they gorgeous too fresh tea cakes now so people think that tea cakes and hot cross buns are the same thing but in fact in fact they are not they are not the same thing tea cakes are normally larger and also they don’t have the cross on the front also they are not as flavoursome they don’t have as much spice or lemon zest inside them so normally lemon zest lemon zest I love the lemon zest it’s just a sweet bread with some currants or raisins added so the name perhaps such a strong flavor is hot cross bun but they are still delicious they are delicious so mr.

Steve what do we need to do first we need to well these are frozen and we’ve defrosted we need to take them out of this pandemic we can’t put them in the toaster while they’re inside that plastic bag know that I know for certain I would be very silly you keep it so don’t forget don’t toast them in the back because the plastic will melt and they will tastes terrible so they freeze very well for once we brought them fresh bread retort too many and if we froze with some of them and they are absolutely delicious icy frosty red freezes very well as we all know and there they all look lovely look at those lovely tea cakes so now mr.

Steven iceberg mr. Steve is going to cut them right in half careful I’ve got an armed with a sharp knife I’m not sure if we should trust mr. Steve with a sharp knife so here we go I’m going to cut these in preparation for putting in the toaster there we go that one that will strengthen in the toaster and I’ll move I’ll cut the other one in half so that we resin because know me better them we want to make sure the right hard okay with the right ones and this one thing I’ve noticed with mr.

Steve when he’s doing something he likes to bang things around and clang which is great for real life but unfortunately on camera whether you are listening at home it sounds dreadful so try to do everything quietly if you can do it silently silently including them but the voice can be big fine well they’re going to take about two minutes to toast in there so meanwhile should I get rid of with in here the butter oh yes we’re going to put some lovely butter now you have to have butter on your tea cakes there is something I noticed because the word butter can actually be used in other ways as well is that true mr. Steve that’s very true yes butter is normally for spreading on bread and things like that but it can be used by the way so here we go butter the word butter can be used in more than one way for example it can be used as a verb in the phrase butter up if you want to win someone’s favor or if you want to get someone on your side you might try to charm them by doing something nice you butter them up you try to butter them up by being nice to them so the phrase butter up means flatter a person or suck up to them for example I need my friend to drive me into town tomorrow and I won’t have to butter him up by treating him to dinner to butter up a person means to flatter or charm someone so was it get on that good side you ingratiate them butter or butter up now I can butter up to mr.

Duncan couldn’t I yeah I could tell mr. Duncan oh I’ll go do that later I will show an example no I’ll do it now oh I’m gonna butter up to mr. Duncan now mr. Dave oh how do you what how do you look so slim having have you lost weight oh thank you I think mr. Steve is trying to butter me up I think mr. Steve wants something so better up means to flatter someone or to ingratiate yourself to to creep around someone normally for a favor okay any chance that I can you know here on your showers on Sunday no your office doesn’t show yeah and you’re on it now it’s slim you’re so good-looking this isn’t okay come on I’m hungry right that pinging sound meant that this out of the toaster and over there we go mr.

Duncan won’t like that one because it’s bird you know my bird burns daily mr. Tim I don’t like my buns burn I bet my buns too Brown try not to bang around please stop banging it sounds terrible on the camera mr. Duncan likes lots of better on his tea cakes I would say where else but he said there are some on the teeth on the tea cakes I like I like my buns buttery that’s great that’s good mr. Steve thank you there we go I don’t know what’s happened to that it doesn’t seem very much there we go there is the first tea cake it has been toasted and as you can see there is some butter it is now melting on the tea cake so mr. Steve is now going to toast his tea cake by the way just in case you have just joined us we are live well this isn’t live but in a moment I will be lying again on Sunday yes we are here live is live can be on Sunday afternoon I hope you are enjoying this live lesser my fingers are all greasy and so I was using a paper towel to wipe all the butter off so it’s gonna be a long time we got two minutes at least two minutes to wait before the next TK comes out to the toaster so well I know what I’m I don’t know what I’m going to I wanna go cold I’m going to have a bite of the tea cake to see how nice it is to see how well nice please how well mr.

Steve has toasted this tea cake let’s see okay mmm they go very nicely with a cup of tea hence the name tea cake well actually it could be called a tea cake you have them at tea time I think it’s because you have another cup of tea which we haven’t got ready but we can make afterwards the kept low now while we’re waiting no suit yourself it’s too noisy okay pretend pretend Oh what are we five year olds another 30 second repeat mr. Steve likes his buns very Brown mmm these are delicious very nice hmm hot you know testers get very hot right there is there is another type of there is another type of burn called a scone or stomp and they are much smaller and normally they are made with pure butter or fat another way for a burn is your buttocks yes but actually that it’s buns so your buttocks or your bum cheeks can be called bunions now that normally comes from American English so if you talk about someone’s nice buns you might be talking about their bread but also you might be talking about their lovely sexy bottom okay mr.

Steve so that could actually yes it like someone’s bottom that does that’s good can I just say now for the record mr. Steve can you stop banging things around and I put that but it back in the fridge otherwise it’ll melt I’m gonna do it quietly all right so I’m ready to be fine now that’s it we’re going to eat our tea cakes I’ve already eaten half of mine thank you very much for following us delicious we’re now going back to the studio back to the studio live to rejoin mr. Duncan that’s me Oh Oh mr. Duncan and I look forward to seeing you again very shortly where am I going to be stuck in the corner maybe I haven’t decided yet outside oh yeah it’ll be a big surprise off we go bye hmm so here we are then it is a Friday and we are live I hope you enjoyed that for those who are missing mr.

Steve I thought I would play one of our old moments of time recorded in the kitchen when we were eating our tea cakes and for those who are wondering the small black things inside are raisins raisins and sultanas they are types of dried fruit so I hope that answers your question I hope you enjoyed that fortunately the rain is holding off we just had some lovely sunshine the Sun came out just and it was absolutely glorious and soon as the video finished and I returned live the Sun went back in I don’t know what’s going on come on son why are you letting me down I’ve just been checking on my phone as well there are lots of very useful apps that you can get nowadays for your mobile phones so there is one that I can actually check any time of the day to find out what the weather is like in my area and they even have a special radar that scans for rain so I can actually see a live view and I can see where the rain is and where it is moving so at the moment it looks as if there is no rain here at the moment there is no rain anywhere around this area although I suppose I should be very careful what I’m saying to be honest because you know we might suddenly get lots of rain so I’ll have to be careful what I’m saying the live chat is up and running oh hello there so many people on the live chat amory is here or amia sorry I wish I could have your tea cakes yes they are beautiful oh hey Haitham gauzy says amazing recording we miss mr.

Steve a lot of people miss mr. Steve by the way last night last night it was the first night the opening night of the musical play that mr. Steve is actually appearing in so apparently everything went well now tonight I am going to see it so instead of tomorrow night originally I was going to go tomorrow but I’m very busy tomorrow preparing things for Sunday so I will actually be going tonight to see mr. Steve perform in his his musical play where he is playing a Spanish pirate would you like to see a little bit of mr. Steve pretending to be a Spanish pirates ok hello mr. Duncan and all your lovely viewers all around the world today I met earlier sir so unfortunately I cannot be here to teach English with you today hopefully on Wednesday or next Sunday I will be back and then we shall teacher the English to everyone around the world but today I am a color standard retired from the Caribbean island of sand arena goodbye thank you Steve thank you very much for that I’ve just also noticed because I’m reward he mentioned the the date was wrong earlier and I’ve also noticed that the time is also wrong so I don’t know how that’s happened I really don’t so I’m going to change that right now let’s see if I can actually change that it is supposed to be five minutes past two my computer seems to have a mind of its own today so there it is that’s better it is six minutes past o’clock on a Friday and I’m outside doing something very special because it is the first of June it really does feel as if spring is in the air the weather is so variable yes variable it is changeable it changes from one thing to another so yes it would be fair to say that the weather at the moment is very very changeable variable so if something varies it changes so yes I think you are right there the weather here especially today is very changeable it is variable Haytham says oh I think and I’m not sure what you’re laughing at I’m not sure I don’t know yeah I hope it’s something very funny that’s all I can say the Sun has come out yes the Sun is now out and I am now being bombarded with ultraviolet light from olive listen what is it 9 91 million miles away is it so and yet it still feels hot it really does so it’s live English and I am in my short today would you like to see my feet okay here are my feet a live shot of my feet as we stand here in the CERN you can see I’m wearing my shorts today I am wearing my shorts and also my lovely stripey socks as well so the Sun is now out and everything is nice around the garden everything is looking very summery as well people always like to see the garden so here we go for those who like taking a look around the garden here are some shots and also this is the back at the moment sadly the Bulls are not there I was hoping they would come across I was really hoping that the Bulls would come over to say hello but they only arrived two days ago so at the moment they’re feeling very shy I think that’s what’s going on they are they are actually very shy at the moment so it is live English in the sunshine and this is just a very special livestream just to say hello to June and of course hello to you as well on the live chat mr.

Steve could perform in the movies oh really do you think he’s that good yes I think mr. Steve is a very good performer he is a very good actor and he’s been in quite a few shows now very very big parts he was in a show called a Christmas Carol based on a story by Charles Dickens and he actually played the lead part he was actually playing the lead role of Scrooge he’s also appeared in the king and I as well bit bitterness hello vit Ernests hello from Lithuania hello to you I don’t think we’ve spoken before have we have we talked to each other before or is it your first time I am rewarded says I really like tea cakes with raisin I’m not a big fan of raisins to be honest so sometimes I will pick them out so sometimes I will pick them out especially if there are too many because I don’t like too many reasons in my teacakes hat wah says such a beautiful garden thank you very much for that you are very kind I’m very pleased to hear that you like the garden it is still trying to rain here there is now a big ominous cloud hanging over the house and it looks as if it’s about to rain but but the forecast says there is no rain I’m getting very confused with the weather today it’s all over the place all over the place if something is all over the place it means it is very chaotic it is hard to predict it is all over the place so the weather today is all over the place it is very hard to predict it is very chaotic it is changeable it sure is I envy you with your sunny weather and garden well I can tell you now it’s not always sunny here quite often we get rain we get storms so it’s not always sunny even during the summer we can get lots and lots of rain I saw some live news videos on YouTube that have live subtitles yes I think there are some channels may be very big channels that have subtitles on their live stream but at the moment YouTube is not allowing me to have them I don’t know why because they would be very useful to be honest they would be very useful indeed h-m is here hello there I am mubashir Hafiz from Pakistan and I am studying at the Medical University and I’m wishing you the best of luck thank you very much mubashir watching in Pakistan petrol is oh hello Pedro Belmont of course it wouldn’t be a live chat without Pedro Belmont so Pedro is here how long am i on for well I’m probably going to stay on for about an hour so I will be with you for around about another 15 maybe 20 minutes of course it all depends on whether or not it rains so if it suddenly starts raining I will have to go in the house and then everything will have to come to an end that’s not very nice is it so I’m hoping that the rain will stay off I’m hoping very much that the rain will stay away today is windy and cloudy in my city well it’s cloudy here but sometimes we get lots and lots of sunshine as well and it’s very very hot I’m actually wearing my shorts today that’s how hot it is yesterday the weather was nice and I decided yesterday to put some washing out so there you can see some washing on the clothes line and that is what I did yesterday so this type of weather is very good for drying your washing so whenever the weather is nice I always like to do some washing so I can hang it out and it always dries very very well what about you do you like to hang your washing outside because I know nowadays people have these very sophisticated washing machines and they will wash your clothes and they will dry them as well incredible so some people have very posh washing machines they will actually dry the clothes as well it’s a lovely morning well now it is afternoon here it is now just coming up to quarter past two quarter past two on a Friday afternoon and I don’t normally do live streams on Friday but today I thought I would do something different hello mr.

Duncan from Vietnam long time no see true true Tuan Minh hello to you Stran love is here we need one course for a special about the singer George Michael yes George Michael was a very popular singer during the early 1980s and also the 1990s as well so George Michael started out in the early 1980s I remember very well when George Michael first appeared on television because I was a teenager back then I know it’s hard to believe isn’t it that I was a teenager in the 1980s but it’s true it’s true I tell you what a great surprise you are here mr. Duncan it’s very unusual well I thought today I would do something different I thought I would do something different today because it’s the first of June and it’s a Newman so that’s the reason why I’m here today Noah says yes we are in shock we are very shocked you are live again mr.

Duncan yes I was alive I was alive and live on Wednesday with my usual live stream and I will be here on Sunday as well with my live stream from 2 p.m. UK time at the moment I’m being attacked by lots and lots of flies yes there are flies everywhere at the moment I’m being attacked attacked by flies Jobin says you look knackered when we say a person looks knackered it means they look tired tired well I’m going to tell you something that I have been suffering with hay fever during the past couple of days and one of the side effects of hay fever is that you get a very sore throat so at the moment I have a very sore throat and that’s the reason why my voice sounds a little bit croaky a little bit rough because of the hay fever yes did you hear the crow saying hello someone’s car alarm was going off did you hear that someone’s car alarm was going off is it Children’s Day in your hometown I don’t think it is I don’t think today is Children’s Day maybe it is in your country but I’m not sure about here but one thing I do know is that today here in England it is national fish-and-chip day because you may be aware that we like eating fish and chips here in the UK we are very very fond of eating fish and chips it’s making me feel hungry now andrew says is there any treatment or are there any inhalers to help you with hayfever there are some types of medicine to help you with your hay fever and I do take some of those type of Medicine but the problem is some of the medicine has a very bad side effect and the side effect is that it makes you very very sleepy so I don’t like to take too much especially if I’m working and especially if I’m doing a livestream because I have to stay very alert so yes sometimes I do take medication for my hay fever but the problem is it has side effects and one of the side effects is it makes me very drowsy very sleepy do you celebrate fish-and-chip day asks Albert I really wish I could I really wish I could but unfortunately there isn’t a fish and chip shop round here although having said that later on for for dinner I’m going to have some fish so I’m not completely celebrating fish and chip day but I am having some fish later but no chips sadly hello mr.

Black bird mr. black bird is just saying hello I think the birds are waiting to feed you see because just just behind me there’s a bird feeder just over there there is the bird feeder and I think the birds are waiting to eat I think so it is Children’s Day in Vietnam ah ok then so maybe in some countries they are celebrating Children’s Day so in Vietnam there are lots of interesting activities taking place for Children’s Day the birds are getting very excited behind me hi just saying hello to the birds hello mister venca and i’m happy to join you says Nadia hello Nadia is it your first time on the live chat please let me know if it is also hi therm says I like your perspective mr. Duncan for taking medicines I don’t always like to take medicine so I take it when I have to if I really need it but normally I don’t like to take medicine unless I have to so if my hay fever gets really bad if it gets very severe I will take some medicine but at the moment it’s not too bad my hay fever is not bad today even though I have a slight sore throat I have a very sore throat can you see behind me and being asked yes Anne asks what is your possession in the garden what are the things in your garden well I can show you the thing behind me can you see there that is a birdbath so that is where the birds will go to bathe and also to to drink as well so quite often the birds will gather and they will have a drink and sometimes they will also go into the water and have a little bath as well and over there can you see just over there you can see my my heron so that isn’t a real heron it’s actually a fake heron it’s not real so it’s not not real don’t worry my throat is very rough today can you can you hear my throat it sounds very bad and that’s because of the hay fever so yes so that the heroin behind me that heroin is not real its fake it’s made of plastic and there is the birdbath and if you look there you can see part of my dams and tree so that is where all of the dam zones are growing at the moment thank you am rewarding for your best wishes I don’t feel sick I feel perfectly healthy today I feel so so well unfortunately my throat at the moment is a little sore because of my hay fever so if you also suffer from hay fever you will know exactly what I’m going through it is very very unpleasant very unpleasant indeed you have got some great deal and passion for teaching keep doing the same thing thank you Jobin for that you are welcome I I do intend to continue doing this I’m not going anywhere some people think that I’m about to quit but I’m not I’m not going anywhere honestly some people seem to think that I’m going but I’m not in fact can I let you in on a secret during the month of June that’s this month I will be doing some special surprise live streams just like this so during the month of June I’m planning to do some special live streams just for you hopefully my hay fever will stay away and my voice will return so I’m planning on having a very busy month in the month of June I am planning to have a very busy month indeed do you drink enough yes I’ve been drinking lots of water today Thank You summer summer cookie thank you for your thank you for your care and consideration hello mr.

Duncan this is my first time here and I’m so happy ephra hello ephra thanks for joining me today even though my voice isn’t very good today I’m very sorry about that my voice sounds a little rough and that is because of the hay fever I apologize I really do so the weather here is okay and we also have Oh for those who missed it the other night a lot of people were asking about the the daihlia in the garden so for those who were watching or weren’t watching on Wednesday there is the Dahlia you can see now that the flowers are preparing to come out everything is coming into bloom isn’t that lovely I was hoping to show you the Bulls today but unfortunately they’ve they’ve vanished they’ve walked away it’s not very nice is it so it’s live English on a Friday afternoon here in the UK it is now coming up to half-past in the afternoon and I hope you are feeling happy today and I hope you are enjoying this special live stream even though my voice is starting to fade why don’t you build a massive fence around your property well because I like to see the view I like to see the trees and the cows and the grass thanks mr.

Duncan I’m waiting for your extra life lessons in June yes I am planning to pop-up pop-up if someone pops up it means they appear suddenly they will pop up it’s a great expression and we use it quite often in English to describe something that suddenly appears suddenly appears it pops up it popped up to pop up is to suddenly appear and I will be doing a lot of popping up during June your job is quite hard yes is that this is not easy for those who think that doing a live stream is easy it is not I think this is the hardest thing to do on YouTube it’s very easy to record videos and talk and then rerecord it so if you make a mistake when you are recording something you can just do it again but unfortunately because I’m live I can’t do this again so if I make a mistake then that’s it it’s happened I can’t change anything so one of the things that I really enjoy about doing lie is that it is spontaneous and that means that anything anything can happen anything even the hay fever affects you and your voice but you are speaking still clear and I have understood everything thanks a lot for your enthusiasm Thank You Fung du Chun thank you very much for that do you have any favorite flowers mr.

Duncan I like all sorts of flowers I like colorful flowers I like red flowers yellow flowers I love the daffodils in the spring so every time spring arrives I always look forward to the arrival of daffodils so yes I like all sorts of flowers I also like trees as well and that’s why I live here because I am literally surrounded surrounded they are all around me I am surrounded by trees it’s true so there are trees all around me I am surrounded by them mr.

Duncan I hope you will recover soon thank you very much a meme or Amina Amina I Adi thank you very much that’s very kind of you mr. J is here oh hello there mr. J I’ve not seen you here before is it your first time I think so I think so so live chat lots of things going on in the news at the moment yesterday all of the chaos that is going on in Italy was sort of resolved so now Italy has a new government having said that today it’s like political musical chairs it really is today in Spain the government there collapsed so now at the moment in Spain they have no government due to various things so the prime minister or the president has stepped down he has stepped down so now there will be another election by the looks of it in Spain I don’t know what it is about politics at the moment everything seems quite crazy what do you think it’s very crazy we have lots of things going on in the world at the moment we have North Korea about to give up its nuclear weapons maybe we have world peace approaching well okay maybe in North Korea and South Korea there will be some some peace we can only hope so why can’t I see my messages asks Sameera I don’t know I don’t know why well I can see your messages Sameera I can see your messages Mustapha says mr.

Duncan how can we speak fast not fastly fastly is not a word how can we speak fast well just like everything you have to learn how to do it and that means putting in lots and lots of practice first of all you have to start off slowly you have to learn like a child never be afraid to learn like a child whenever you learn something new you always start with the very basics the simple things and that includes speaking so when you first start to learn a new language you might find that you speak very slowly like a child so that’s what you do you practice you do it regularly you have to make it part of your life I think so hello mr.

Duncan I haven’t watched your videos for a very long time Thank You Nam for saying hello Nasir says mr. Duncan what a surprise to watch you today yes I’m here I’m here it’s Simona and I what watching you on my son’s YouTube account ah okay then hello Simona and welcome you are more than welcome today something very different I’m actually outside on the 1st of June I know for most people that will mean nothing but here in England the 1st of June is a very special day because it means that we can officially say that it is summertime I don’t know why it always feels as if summer has really arrived as soon as June begins I don’t know why but it may be it’s a psychological thing I think so but whenever whenever June arrives it always feels as if summer has arrived with it what is your favorite singer do you mean who who is your favorite singer because a singer is a person so when we refer to a person it is always who who is your favorite singer who Sergio we are all on the edge of a trade war yes this is something that has happened over the past 48 hours it would appear that certainly with the United States they are now charging countries that want to export to the United States at the moment I think it’s aluminium aluminium and I want to say steel so if a country outside the States wants to export their steel or aluminium to the to the United States they will have to pay what they call a levy levy so there is a charge that will be imposed if they want to export to the United States some people think it’s unfair some people think that it is perfectly fair so it depends on what your position is it depends where you are standing at the time Eliana says my favorite singer is Elton John yes Elton John at the moment he is doing a tour this year and apparently it’s his final tour he’s actually going to retire from touring and that’s this year yes he’s doing a tour I think it’s this year and it looks as if he’s going to retire from performing live which I suppose is is a little bit sad for those who are big fans of Elton John TS Amory I got an IELTS band 5 on writing well that’s not too bad I must admit band 5 is pretty good pretty good five point five would have been nice or maybe even six but five yes not not too bad not too bad at all on Wednesday in Canada there is chicken and what is that chicken wings delicious it is wigs with delicious sauce I’m not sure what wigs are shitty do you mean wings do you mean the wings I think you mean you mean wing chicken wings so you can fly away like a bird chicken wings chicken wings hi what are you talking about it is open today you can talk about anything I’ve just been talking about the trade war that is taking place at the moment between the United States and also Canada and Europe so yes there is a lot to talk about also there is some political tension at the moment in Spain where the president or prime minister has just stepped down and in Italy they have just announced that they have a new government so there is there are all sorts of things going on at the moment in the world 2018 is proving to be a very very busy year I think so Andrea it’s not good enough for university I must do more practice yes TAS you probably need to get a or even a 6 even a 6 I think I think you should really be aiming for 6 to be iced-tea GN says I really appreciate your work thanks a lot for your throat I advise you some honey with black pepper and lemon that sounds very nice actually mr.

Steve actually has some lemon tea so he has some lovely herb all tea that has lemon and also ginger and apparently that is also very good for your throat as well it’s very good if you have a fever very good it’s very interesting to listen to you mr. Duncan Thank You Samira I’m glad that you are enjoying it I am actually going to leave you in a moment I’m only here for around about one hour so I hope you’ve enjoyed this livestream just something a little different to celebrate the new month yes understood that you need or more yes you should always be aiming aiming for 5 point 5 or 6 at the very least it is a sunny day here the Sun has come out again yes the Sun is out and I am now enjoying the rays of sunlight but I don’t want to get too much Sun because it’s not good for your skin it isn’t good for your skin at all and today I’m wearing my socks let’s have a quick look at my socks again shall we there they are you can see and wearing my socks today and also my shorts can you see my legs yes I’m wearing my shorts because it’s so hot the only problem is that all the flies keep biting me they are flying around and they are biting my legs and it is very annoying very annoying indeed so there you can see my my socks and also my shorts I hope you enjoyed that I don’t know why some people are always interested to find out what type or which type of shorts I’m wearing so today I’m wearing my lovely blue shorts that I bought in Turkey do you have tea at like the Queen well I’m not sure if the Queen has tea at 5 o’clock I’m not quite sure about that I couldn’t answer that question to be honest I’ve never been to Buckingham Palace to have tea with the Queen but I will be having a cup of tea as soon as I finished this livestream in around about 2 or 3 minutes so I will be going very soon for two reasons one I have to prepare mr.

English Conversation Study in COLORADO – American English

{“en”:”In this American English pronunciation video, youu2019re going to come with me and my parents to Colorado. Youu2019ll get to see some of the natural beauty of this state, and study American English pronunciation in real life. Todayu2019s topics: How to pronounce u2018riveru2019, gorge, the noun and the verb, the idioms u2018to keep your eyes peeledu2019 and u2018keep an eye outu2019. Also, the pronunciation of u2018mooseu2019 and u2018elku2019. >> One neat feature of Colorado is the Colorado river. Now, it might not look like too much here, but this is the river that carved out the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I was lucky enough to visit the Grand Canyon on my Epic Road Trip Across America this summer. >> The word u2018riveru2019 is a two-syllable word with stress on the first syllable. DA-da. River. It begins with an R consonant.

When the R comes at the beginning of a word, the lips to make a tight circle for that, rr, and the tongue is pulled back. For me, the middle part is touching the roof of the mouth about here, rr, the tip isnu2019t touching anything. Then we have the IH vowel, so the jaw will drop just a bit and the tongue will come forward. Riv-. >> Then for the V, the bottom lip will come up and make contact with the bottom of the top front teeth. Riv-er. Then we have the schwa-R ending, so the tongue will come back into position for the R. The jaw doesnu2019t need to drop.

River, river. River. >> Weu2019ve stopped here to take a look at the Byeru2019s Gorge. A gorge is a deep, rocky ravine. And, as you can see, we have these nice, beautiful rock faces going up on either side. And I think itu2019s just beautiful. In this case, the Colorado river is whatu2019s flowing down, uh, in the middle. I suppose it is what has worn the edges of the mountains down. >> Gorge is sort of a tricky word. It starts with the G consonant, then it has the AW as in LAW, but the tongue must pull straight back for the R consonant, gor-, gor-, -ge.

And it ends with the J as in JAR consonant sound. Gorge. Itu2019s gorgeous! >> Well gorge also has the meaning of eating too much food, when you gorge out. >> Thatu2019s true. >> On a bunch of food. >> Thatu2019s true. So this is the noun gorge, and the verb gorge: stuffing your face, basically. >> Thatu2019s right. >> Yeah. >> And itu2019s sort of funny in that, in the one, gorge is hollowing out, cutting away >> Right.

>> u2026this big ravine >> Yeah. >> u2026 in the mountains, and on the other, gorge is filling up. >> Right. Stuffing! >> Way too much. >> Thatu2019s interesting. So, gorge the noun is a narrow valley, like you saw, typically with rock walls and a river or stream running through it. The verb has a completely different meaning, to eat a lot of food, to stuff yourself. The word comes from a word meaning throat. Next we drove to Rocky Mountain national park to see elk and moose. >> Okay, so keep your eyes peeled for both elk and moose. Keep your eyes peeled means to watch for something. We use it with u2018foru2019, which you know we like to reduce. Keep your eyes peeled for moose and elk. >> So keep your eyes peeled for both elk and moose. >> Dad, whatu2019s the other idiom we came up with for this? >> Uh, keep an eye out for elk and moose.

>> Yes. As we drive, weu2019ll keep an eye out for moose and elk. >> Keep an eye out for elk and moose. >> Yes. Keep an eye out is not the same thing as keep an eye on. >> No. Thatu2019s correct. >> If we had some elk here, we could keep an eye on them. But since we donu2019t have any and weu2019re looking for them, weu2019re keeping an eye out for them. Keep an eye on means to watch or pay attention to something. For example, keep an eye on the time so youu2019re not late. >> Elk has the EH as in BED vowel. A lot of jaw drop. Then the Dark L, so the back part of your tongue has to pull back, el-k. Then the K. So lift your tongue to the soft palate, and release. Elk. >> Itu2019s fun being able to get so close. Thereu2019s two here, which brings me to the point that the plural of elk is elk.

You donu2019t add an S or anything. One elk, two elk. We got lots of good views of elk. But I really wanted to see a moose. I only saw them at a distance, sitting down. We had been looking the whole day, and I was starting to think I wouldnu2019t see one. Then, just before it was dark outu2026 >> I feel very luck to be seeing my first moose. Moose is an easy pronunciation. Itu2019s the M consonant sound, the OO as in BOO vowel, and the S consonant sound. Plural, just like u2018elku2019, adds no s. Itu2019s still just moose. One moose, a herd of moose. Isnu2019t it beautiful? This is a female, so it doesnu2019t have the antlers. I hope you enjoyed this study of real life American English in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.

Thatu2019s it, and thanks so much for using Rachelu2019s English.. “}

Job Interview in English #2: Highlight your skills & experience

{“en”:”- Hi there, and welcome to Speak English with Christina, where you’ll have fun becoming fluent in American English. And welcome back for bonus lesson number two. I’m really happy to see you back for this lesson on how to win more professional opportunities in English, so let’s go ahead and dive in. First, a quick review of lesson number one in case you didn’t see it. We learned that opportunities can come anywhere, anytime, so you always must be prepared so that you avoid last-minute cramming and stress. Cramming is where you try to prepare quickly for something in a short period of time, and generally it creates stress and not very good results. We learned also how to introduce yourself in a professional way. So if you missed that lesson and you need to do this, go back and watch lesson number one. And we also saw that clear structures and simple sentences give you confidence and credibility when you’re speaking English. Now, when you do all of that, you stand out, meaning you are remarkable. People notice you compared to the other candidates or the other people that they talk to.

You become credible and convincing, even in English. This means that you get more opportunities, perhaps a better quality of life, a better salary, and just more excitement in your life because you have better opportunities. Maybe even the possibility to work in a different country if that’s what you want to do. Some people it’s work in a different country, but some people it’s get a job that is closer to their home. But doesn’t matter, you get a better opportunity. You get interesting projects, better opportunities, better career prospects. Even if you’re doing a job interview to change companies, to get a new job, or just trying to get a promotion inside your company or to be chosen for a really exciting mission, maybe in the U.S., I don’t know.

But if you’re credible with your English, you’re clear, you’re convincing, all of these opportunities become possible. And the online course Get The Job, you’re gonna get some more details about this later, but this course gives you the English that you need to get those new opportunities. Like this woman in the photo, maybe you want to go to New York, but maybe you just want to get a better job in your own country. Now, are you the right person for the job or for the mission? This is what the interviewer is asking themselves.

If I choose this person, am I making the right decision? Which means that even in English, you need to show your personality, to be yourself, to be friendly, and sometimes this isn’t easy. I learned French, and for a long time I felt like I wasn’t myself in a different language. I didn’t have as fun of a personality. It’s really frustrating, that feeling, when you’re not yourself in a different language. And in a different language, it does take extra effort to show that you’re a nice person, to show that you’re pleasant to work with, to show that you can make jokes, things like that. And your confidence level is important here. You can’t be terribly shy. You don’t have to be very talkative all the time, but you need to have confidence when you’re speaking in English. And we’re gonna help you to get a little confidence today.

But first, two secrets that I like to call secrets because a lot of people don’t know this about job interviews in the U.S. First, the recruiter expects a thank you note. And next week in fact, the regular Speak English with Christina episode is going to be all about thank you notes after an interview, so be sure to catch that. And also, surprise telephone interviews are common practice, so you always must be prepared.

What sometimes happens is the recruiter or the interview receives applications, they want to pre-screen before they choose who they meet, so they might call you, surprise, and ask you a few questions. So you want to be prepared for this and not wait until you have an appointment for an interview. Because if you’re not prepared, you might not get that appointment.

So, little hint, join this list. Go to this page on the website on the screen before Tuesday, November 7th, and you’re gonna get some extra bonuses about this coming up in the next week or so. So, go there, sign up, get the bonuses, and get the job. Now, if you don’t know me, let me introduce myself. I’m Christina. I’m an English coach since 2004, and I coach students around the world online, in France, Italy, Brazil, Taiwan, Japan. I really love my job. I love helping people become more confident and more fluent in English, and that’s why I created Speak English with Christina TV. And today there are more than 80,000 Speak English Ambassadors, these are my students, who are learning English with me. So it’s a really fantastic community of learners, and I encourage you to go to ChristinaRebuffet.com and see what it’s all about and join us if you like it. Now, solid structures make you more convincing and easy to understand when you’re speaking English, especially when you’re talking about yourself and your experience.

And one super useful structure, it’s the S.T.A.R. structure. It stands for situation, tasks, action or approach, and the result. And we’re gonna see how you can apply this structure in different situations. The situation at the beginning, this is the context of your story. Then the task is the challenge that you faced. The action is what you did to overcome that challenge. And the result is, well, the result or the lesson that you learned from the task and the action. And you can use this in a lot of different situations that we’re gonna look at later, but first we’re going to look at one specific situation at a networking event, and someone starts a question with “Have you ever?” Like, “Have you ever used Agile “to manage any of your projects?” Because maybe they want to find out if you would be a good person to work with and they want to know about your experience with this.

So you start with the situation. “Yeah, I have. “It was in my last job. “I was working on a software development project.” Okay, context. Then the task. “And we needed to find a way to streamline everything “and distribute the work more evenly to project members.” Then action, what you did. “So, with our team, we decided to try out Agile. “We even did special training in Agile “so we could be sure to do it right.” And the result.

“And it was really helpful. “Our project went a lot more smoothly, “the work was better distributed, “and we could keep track of our progress better. “I really liked the approach.” So you see how those structures help you to be clearer, easier to understand. And what’s good about the S.T.A.R. structure is that it’s very flexible. You don’t have an answer to memorize, because that doesn’t work, but you have a flexible structure with strategies to answer similar questions in different contexts more easily, which boosts your confidence, boosts your fluency, and makes it easier for you to get more opportunities. Here’s a few examples in a job interview. “Tell me about a time “when you had to face a difficult situation.” Use the S.T.A.R. structure. For example, the situation. “I was supposed to have training before beginning a new job, “but finally I didn’t have the training.

“It wasn’t easy because my team was almost completely new “and had no experience at the company. “They didn’t know the company’s processes, and me neither.” Okay, there’s your context. Your task. “I had to teach myself the process “because no one trained me. “I had to adapt myself to the situation “and find solutions to learn the process quickly. “I also had to stay credible in the eyes of my team. “And this was important for me as a new manager.” So your action, what you did. “Each day, I studied the process “in the company documentation. “I spent a lot of time doing this, “but finally I succeeded in learning everything “to feel comfortable in my new position.” And the result. “So, thanks to my persistence, I overcame this difficulty “and could teach the process to my team. “We advanced without waiting for the training, “which finally happened three months later.

“But because we were all familiar with it, “the training was quick and easy for the entire team.” So, that’s one very common job interview question, but here are some other questions where you could use the S.T.A.R. structure for different contexts. In a job interview, “Tell me about a time “when you had to handle an unhappy customer. “What did you do?” At a networking event, “What’s the most interesting project “that you’ve worked on?” Or at a meeting, “Patrick,” or whatever, “Patrick, you’ve had experience with this.

“Why don’t you tell us what you did? “Maybe that can help us find some ideas for solutions.” So, like I said, this is a very versatile, practical, useful structure in a lot of different contexts, and it will help you sound clear, credible, convincing, and structured. Now, this is also part of the Get The Job course. You actually have a completely module on how to structure answers to questions like this. And here’s what one past student said. “Christina’s program,” the Get The Job course, “helped me so much. “She’s very oriented professional life, “with a modern approach. “At the end of the program, I felt more prepared “for a job interview in English and I was comfortable “with answering questions about my experience.” So Muriel saw this change, and you can see this change as well, and the Get The Job course is going to help you make that change.

Now, last time we had some hesitations, and I want to address those, because they are important. If you’re thinking, “I can find resources on the internet for this.” Yes, you can, yeah, but you’ll lose time searching for them, selecting the resources. There’s no structure, there’s no guidance. You don’t know if what you’re finding, if it’s good or not, because there’s so much out there. So, yes, you can, but you’re gonna lose time that would be better spent preparing and improving your English. Like I said, take the energy and use it to improve the way that you present yourself, the way that you defend your profile. It’s a better use of your time. And as we say in English, time is money, so use your time wisely.

For example, with the Get The Job course, which accelerates your process, because everything is chosen, everything is structured. You just have to do the work to increase your chance of success. “I can’t memorize answers by heart.” I totally agree with you. Life is not memorized answers by heart. And the course doesn’t give you answers to memorize, no. It gives you a step-by-step guide to create your own answers in correct English. So it includes grammar, vocabulary, and the system to guide you to create your own answers so that you learn to talk about your experience, your skills, and your strengths in a natural way that shows that you are the right person for job or the project.

And maybe you’re thinking, “I need to practice with someone.” I agree. I’m a big fan of practicing to learn to speak English. And there are also opportunities for speaking practice in the course with a special coaching option. But if you want to learn about these opportunities, you have to join the list at the address on the screen before Tuesday, November 7th so that you get your invitation to join the course and to join those speaking opportunities as well. Now, a little preview in lesson number three. Next time, you’re gonna see some tips from a international recruiter on what to do and what not to do to succeed in an interview. It’s not so easy to pronounce, that one. You’ll also see how to conclude your interview or networking discussion positively, which is very important, and how to increase your chances that the other person remembers you as motivated, easy to work with, and someone that they want to follow up with for the next step in the process, whatever that is.

Now, I have a question for you. What is the most difficult thing for you about selling or promoting your profile in English? What are the things that you’re worried about when you do this? Tell me in the comments below, because I can make some lessons about it to help you with those things. And I would love to read your stories about this. All right, so that’s it for bonus lesson number two. Bonus lesson number three is coming in a few days, so be sure to come back and check for that. And of course go and get your bonuses and join the list to get your invitation to join the Get The Job course before November 7th. All right, you guys, I’m Christina, and I’ll see you next time.. “}
