Learn English | Basic English Conversation Course | 12 lessons

{“en”:”Hello. Welcome to our conversation series. These videos are for intermediate level learners of English. In these videos, we will talk about many expressions to help you communicate in English. When you watch these videos you should do 3 things to help you study. First, our teachers may say a word that you donu2019t know. Please take the time to find that word in a dictionary to help you understand the video. Second, you should always try to repeat after the teacher in the video. Whenever the teacher uses some new vocabulary or expressions, you need to repeat how they say it. Last, you should always review and re-watch the videos, and practice what you learned to help you understand the expressions being taught to you. It takes time and effort, but these videos will help you if you watch them with a sincere interest to learn English. Thank you and enjoy the videos. Hi, everybody. Iu2019m Esther and in this video, weu2019re going to talk about how to describe the cost or price of something.

Now this is important to people like me who like shopping. Rightu2026 So, for example, I like shopping, especially for dresses. So, I might say, the cost of u201cThis dress is affordable.u201d Oku2026 u201cThis dress is affordable.u201d u2018Affordableu2019 means that this dress is not too expensive. I have enough money and I can pay for this dress. I have enough money, I u2018canu2019 buy this dress. So, I would say, u201cThis dress is affordable.u201d I can also say, u201cThis dress is inexpensive.u201d We all know what u2018expensiveu2019 is, but we say u201cinexpensiveu201d, so thatu2019s the opposite. u201cInexpensive.u201d u2018Affordableu2019 and u2018inexpensiveu2019 have very similar meanings. Again, I have enough money to buy this. Itu2019s not too expensive. Then we have u201ccheapu201d. u201cThis dress is cheap.u201d Now u2018cheapu2019 is similar. It means itu2019s not expensive, but itu2019s a little bit more negative. If you say that something is u201ccheapu201d, people may think that the quality is not very good. Itu2019s not very nice.

Ok, now letu2019s look at the opposite. The opposite of these words is u201cexpensiveu201d. u201cThis dress is expensive.u201d It costs a lot of moneyu2026too much money. Maybe I donu2019t want to buy it. We can also say, u201cover-pricedu201d. u201cThis dress is over-priced.u201d That means the price is too high. So again, I donu2019t want to buy this dress. Itu2019s too expensive and over-priced. Ok, letu2019s look at some more examples together. Letu2019s look at some examples. u201cThe hat was affordable because it was on sale.u201d u201cThe hat was affordable because it was on sale.u201d Next. u201cI wish this bag was more affordable.u201d u201cI wish this bag was more affordable.u201d Next. u201cThis computer is surprisingly inexpensive.u201d u201cThis computer is surprisingly inexpensive.u201d Next. u201cThese shoes look beautiful, but they are too cheap.u201d u201cThese shoes look beautiful, but they are too cheap.u201d Next. u201cThat jacket is too expensive.u201d u201cThat jacket is too expensive.u201d And last. u201cI cannot buy this over-priced bag.u201d u201cI cannot buy this over-priced bag.u201d Ok, so in this video, we learned that when we want to describe the cost of something, as not too expensive, we say u201caffordableu201d.

Oku2026 Something is u2018affordableu2019 if itu2019s not too expensive. If I can buy it with the money I have. On the other hand, if something is not affordable, if the cost is very high, we say u201cexpensiveu201d or u201cover-pricedu201d. For me, ahhu2026I think some brands like H&M and Forever21 are affordable. Some people donu2019t think this way. They think itu2019s cheap. Uhhu2026sometimes, yes. Some of the items can be cheap. But for me, I like those brands because they are affordable. Ahhhu2026another store that I like, in Koreau2026itu2019s called Zara or uc790ub77c, in Korea as they say. Uhmu2026they have some items that are affordable and some items that are very expensive. Too expensive for me to buy. Ok, well thatu2019s what I wanted to share in this video.

Thanks for watching. Bye. Hello. Iu2019m Bill. In this video, weu2019re going to talk about something fun that people like to dou2026and thatu2019s vacation. We like to go on vacationu2026and we like to tell people about our vacations. Because, if we can make them jealous, thatu2019s even better. Now, thereu2019s two questions here that weu2019re going to use to talk about u2018vacationu2019. One question is u2018where we gou2019 for vacation. And the other question is u2018what we dou2019 when on vacation.

Now, the first question is, u201cDid you go anywhere for vacation?u201d So, vacation time is finished and itu2019s just time to talk about it. So, they ask this question. And thereu2019s different answers you can give. The easiest. u201cYes, I did.u201d But, thatu2019s boring. Easy is not always good because you want to be interesting when you talk. So, someone asks you, u201cDid you go anywhere for vacation?u201d Well, start by u2018where did you gou2019? u201cI went tou2026Busan.u201d Or u201cI went to Jeju.u201d Popular places people love to go to. Or, you could just say, u201cI went to the beach.u201du2026cause people like the beach. So, thatu2019s a place as well. Now, u201cwent tou201d is good to say. You can also go with u201cvisitedu201d. And again, just u2018what place did you visitu2019? We have, u201cI visited Halla Mountain.u201d Oru2026 u201cI visited Haeundai Beach.u201d Those are all good places to visit. But now, sometimes you canu2019t go on vacation.

Something stops you from going on vacation. And, if that happens, you can use this phrase. We have, u201cNo, I had tou2026u201d And we say, u201cI had tou2026u201d because that means something stopped you. So now, it could be, u201cNo, I had to work.u201d Ughu2026 Oru2026 u201cNo, I had to save money.u201d Because if you need to save money, vacation is not a good idea. Now, letu2019s look at some more examples of using these.

The question wasu2026 u201cDid you go anywhere on vacation this year?u201d Answers can beu2026 u201cI went to the U.S.A.u201d Oru2026 u201cI visited Beijing.u201d Oru2026 u201cI was too busy to go anywhere.u201d Ok, now that we talked about u2018where we gou2019 for vacation, weu2019re going to talk about u2018what we dou2019 when weu2019re on vacation. Alrightu2026 And so, when that happens, we have this question here: u201cWhat did you do on vacation?u201d Because we go somewhere, but now we have to do something. Now, the answers are notu2026like before, with the u201cI went tou2026u201d, u201cI visitedu201d.

Alrightu2026 You got to think a little more, but itu2019s still easy. You start with u2018Iu2019, of course. But now, u2018doing somethingu2019, you need a verb. So, you have to use u2018past tenseu2019 verb, because vacation, itu2019s finished. So you have to say things like, u201cI swamu2026at the beach.u201d Or, u201cI swam in a pool.u201d Somethingu2026something like, u201cI hiked on a mountain.u201d Alrightu2026 Just fill in what you were doing. Oku2026 Now, some people, when they go on vacation, they donu2019t like to do many things. For some, vacation is about being lazy. So some people may just say, u201cAhhh, vacation, I just rested.u201d Thatu2019s time to relax. Time to feel good again. Oku2026 Letu2019s take a look at some more examples of these. Now, this questions isu2026 u201cWhat did you do during your vacation?u201d You can sayu2026 u201cI swam at the beach.u201d Or maybeu2026 u201cI rode a boat to Jeju.u201d Oru2026 u201cI just relaxed and read a lot.u201d Ok, so there you have two good and easy questions about vacations.

You have the u201cDid you go anywhere for vacation?u201d, and then the u201cWhat did you do on vacation?u201d. Now, good to ask these questions to people, but itu2019s better to answer the questions because that means you had vacation. So, I hope you can talk about vacations and I hope you get to take many vacations yourself. Alright, see you next time. Thank you. Uhh, Hi. Iu2019m Bill and what I have for you right now are three questions you can ask a foreigner about their country. Because, I know this. People like to talk about where theyu2019re from. Itu2019s easy and itu2019s comfortable for us to do. Now, the first question we have here is this: u201cWhat is the food like in your country?u201d Now, many Korean peopleu2026they say, u201cOur food is spicy.u201d But now, some countries, they donu2019t eat a lot of spicy food. So, sometimes, they might say, u201cOur food is sweet.u201d Or even, they might answer, how do they make the food.

Something like, u201cOur food is grilled.u201d Or, u201cOur food is fried.u201d This is all possible answers. Now, another thing is about the foodu2026is they could talk about what food is popular. Oku2026 Now, just like this: u201cWe eat a lot ofu2026u201d Now, I know from living in Korea, in Korea, u201cWe eat a lot of kimchi.u201d Alright, itu2019s true. Everydayu2026even me. But now, other countries maybe, like America, u201cWe eat a lot of beef.u201d Itu2019s very popular. Oku2026 Andu2026almostu2026not every day, but almostu2026it seems like that happens. Or even, u201cWe eat a lot of eggs.u201d Just u2018what do you eat a lot of?u2019 Ok, letu2019s look at next question. Alright, now here is another question you can ask a foreigner about their country.

And it goes like this. u201cWhat is your country famous for?u201d This is just about what is popular in their country. What do people do? What do people know about? Oku2026 So now, Iu2019m an American, so if someone were to ask me u201cWhat is America famous for?u201d I could just answer like this: u201cMany people know Hollywood.u201d Ya, Hollywood, where America makes the movies. Oku2026 You can say, u201cMany people know Hollywood.u201d Or, itu2019s ok. u201cItu2019s famous for Hollywood.u201d Oku2026 Now, by u2018itu2019, I mean u2018my countryu2019. So, my country, u2018itu2019su2019 famous for Hollywood. We want to change it a bitu2026 We can talk about Canada.

u201cWhat is Canada famous for?u201d Well, thatu2019s easy, we could do, u201cMany people know maple syrup.u201d Very tastyu2026Canadian food. And also, u201citu2019s famous for maple syrup.u201d Oku2026 So, these are two things that are equal that you can use to answer this question. Ok, letu2019s look at the last question, now. Alright, now, hereu2019s our last question that will help you get a foreigner to tell you about their home country. And, it just goes like this: u201cWhat is there to see in your country?u201d Kind of what is famous, again, but something to see. Something to go see at. Oku2026 So now, what we have here isu2026the answer can gou2026 u201cPeople come to seeu2026u201d Now, if the person is form France, the easy answer is: u201cPeople come to see Eiffel tower.u201d Or someone from China.

u201cPeople come to see the Great Wall.u201d Or again, maybe a Japanese person is visiting. They can say, u201cPeople come to see Mount Fuji.u201d Now again, if you travel to another country and someone asks you about Korea, you can just say, u201cPeople come to see Seoul.u201d Or, u201cPeople come to see Kyeongbuk Palace.u201d The famous things to see. Alright, letu2019s take a look at some examples. Question one. u201cWhat is the food like in your country?u2019 u201cWe eat a lot of vegetables.u201d u201cOur food is mostly fired.u201d u201cWe donu2019t eat much fruit.u201d u201cWhat is your country famous for?u201d u201cItu2019s famous for ice hockey.u201d u201cMany people know about our mountains.u201d u201cItu2019s famous for beautiful beaches.u201d u201cWhat is there to see in your country?u201d u201cPeople come to see our old castles.u201d u201cPeople come to see our historical places.u201d u201cPeople come to see our modern cities.u201d Alright, so there you have three questions that you can ask a foreigner about their country.

Itu2019s a great way to start a conversation. And itu2019s also a great way to learn something about another place. I hope this helps you and I hope you can try it soon. Thank you.. “}

How to Study English: Four Core English Skills

{“en”:”Hello, everyone. I’m Robin and welcome to this video. In this video I’m going to talk about the four language skills Whenever we study a language, there are four very important skills, we need to know and practice. So that’s what I’m going to talk about in this video. I’m going to talk about the four skills. And I’m going to teach you how to use these for skills to improve your English language ability. Ahh, this is an introduction video, so I’m not going to go into too much detail. But I still think it’s a very important video to help you improve your English.

So the four language skills. We also call them the Four Core English skills. ‘Core’ means center. Very important. Ok these are very important skills. And I.. I think you already know these skills. The first two: speaking and writing. Now speaking and writing… these are called productive skills or output. Ok, so you have an idea or some information… and you want to give that to another person. You have to create language. Okay. You have to create English. So you’re speaking in English. Or you’re writing a letter or an email. We have to create and give that information to someone.

So we call that productive skills. The last two: listening and reading. We call these receptive skills or input. Ok. So you’re listening to someone speak English And you have to understand. Or you’re reading a book or newspaper article and you have to understand what the information is. These are the four skills. They’re called skills because with practice, we can get better. And I’m going to show you how to practice using these four skills. Now I’m going to teach you how to use the Integrated Skills Approach. ‘Approach’ means it’s a method. Ok.

And it’s a good method. ‘Skills’ – we’re talking about the four skills. And the keyword ‘integrated’ – now what this means is we’re taking the four skills – And when we study English, we’re studying all four skills together at the same time. Alright, let me explain more. So you should study a topic – practicing all four core English skills. Let me give an example of a classroom. Now a good teacher will want to use the Integrated Skills Approach. So the teacher will bring the class a topic… So let’s say the topic today is Canadian culture. So what the teacher will want to do is practice the receptive skills. So, the students might read about Canadian culture. They might watch a video and practice there listening about Canadian culture.

So they’re receiving information in English. And then the teacher will want to practice the productive skills. So, here she will ask the students to write about Canadian culture. …what they thought about Canadian culture… And…they… the teacher will also ask the students to practice speaking about Canadian culture with… with the teacher or with a classmate. So in this class, a good teacher was able to pick a topic – one topic. And practice all four core English skills This is a really good class. This is a really good way to study English. Why? Well with the receptive…ah… practicing the receptive skills, You might learn some new English expressions or vocabulary. And then when you’re we’re practicing the productive skills, you’re able to practice writing these new expressions…. and you practice speaking these new expressions… Alright this will really really help you improve your English. Ahh… so in the class, a good teacher will do this.

Let’s talk about self study – outside the class. How can you do this? Well it’s not easy… ok… you know that. So, the…ah… receptive skills: the reading and listening – That’s easy. You’re practicing your receptive skills now. You’re listening to me. You can watch videos…uh…or listen to the radio. And reading – you can read articles and books. So you can practice that alone. But the productive skills…uh…Writing… Uh…a lot of my students don’t practice that, but you should. Alright. Now you can keep a diary. Whatever you watch, you can make some comments in your diary or about your day. You’re writing. You’re practicing. Uhh…and for speaking… well… you need a partner. Ok. You need a partner to practice speaking. That’s not easy. I know. But you really need to find a club or a friend you can practice speaking English about some topics. Ok? Now I’m going to help you a little bit. Uh…I’m going to talk about Voice of America Now… and this website. Now this is a really good website to practice your…uh…listening and reading. Ok. If you go to this website, they have different levels.

So if you’re a beginner, intermediate, advanced – they have different videos… and different articles. So this will really help you to find your level and practice your listening – when you’re watching a video. And you’re reading. Alright. Right now I’m going to show you how to access this site and use this site. Let’s take a look. First open your browser. Search for Voice of America. You can see their English learning site here. Ok this is the main page. You can see up here many things to explore. They have English lessons. And three levels of news articles. Let’s click level 1. And the first article. You can practice listening with the audio. And it matches the article below. Let’s check level 3. Again, you can play the audio to practice listening. Or read the article first, and listen later. Let’s click the video. They have some good videos for studying English. And they have audio broadcasts, too. Voice of America. A great website to help you improve your English.

Alright there’s one more thing I want to talk about. That is Balanced the Skills. Now we have the four skills here. And one problem I see with my students is they are focusing or they’re st…or they’re practicing only one or two of these skills. And they’re not…they’re ignoring… they’re not practicing other skills So for example: speaking. A lot of my students they’re only practicing speaking… but they’re not practicing writing. Alright. Don’t do this. If you are studying English, you have to practice all of these. Ok. And if possible, integrate it at the same time …about a topic. This will really help you improve your English. Uh, another example…uh.. some of my students….

they…they’re only worried about taking a test. Like TOEFL or TOEIC or IELTS. Uh…so they’re more focused on listening and reading or maybe writing. And they don’t spend any time on speaking. Alright? Oh this is terrible too. Again to really improve your English… balance the skills. Study them all, alright? Now I hope this video helped you. See you next time! If you enjoyed my video – like the video. Or subscribe to my channel. Or write a comment below. Uh…I really want to hear what you thought of my video. Ok. Thank you.. “}

Don’t Study English in Vancouver…and Toronto

{“en”:”Hello, everyone. I’m Robin and welcome to my video. Don’t Study English in Vancouver Why am I making this video? Well, I’m making this video for my Korean students. Ok Now I’m Canadian and I’ve traveled through… throughout Canada and I visited many of my Korean students and I saw how they studied English in Canada. And also many of my students have gone to Canada for six months… one year… two years to study English and comeback and I’ve talked with them. So, I learned a lot about studying English in Canada. And what I learned is don’t study here. Ahh, Vancouver and Toronto. These are the bigger cities in Canada.

And I’m going to say don’t study English in Vancouver. and…don’t study English in Toronto. because…of the students…ahh… that I’ve seen, and there’s been a lot, that went to Canada and studied for six months or a year and they came back. Ahh…I’ve noticed that students that studied English in Vancouver and Toronto… their English was not as good as my students that studied in smaller Canadian cities. Ok, so I’m going to talk a little bit of maybe ‘why’ that happens. And before…uh…I talk about the ‘why’, we should understand if you plan to go to Canada… Uh…you should have a primary goal. Now up here I have an example of two goals. Improve my English speaking ability. Have a great travel experience. Ok. Both of these are good goals. There’s probably other goals but we should identify the primary goal. The first goal and the first goal I think should always be number one. When we go to Canada, we want to improve our English ok we want to go there for one year… …come back. And we speak English…uh…very well. You know it’s very embarrassing if you…your parents spend a lot of money to send you to Canada…

You go there and you come back and there’s only a little bit of improvement. So our first goal should be improve our English So every decision we make, should be to help the first goal. Of course in Canada, wherever you go in Canada, you will have a great travel experience. So understanding our first goal… do not study English in Vancouver… …or Toronto. All right, we should also think about what kind of friends we want to meet in Canada. Ahh…Toronto and Vancouver… Uh…they attract a lot of international students. ok so if you go to the language school…uh… or you’re just walking around…uh…probably you’re going to meet a lot of international students. These are going to be your friends. These are possibly going to be your roommates Again, we have some goals here. You want to go to Canada. You want to make Canadian friends. Ok, to improve your English. And you want to make international friends. This is good, too. …but again our primary goal should be – try to make Canadian friends.

Ok? Again a lot of my students… they go to Canada… they go to Vancouver for one year They come back and they say ” I have a lot of friends” and I asked them, “well “how many Canadian friends?’ …no…they have no Canadian friends. Ok… They have lots of new Korean friends. And they have lots of Japanese or Chinese friends. That’s good, but we should try to make some Canadian friends because this will really help improve our English. Ok. Study here! Here are some better cities. Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Ottawa. Great cities to study English. and ‘why?’ Well problem one. There’s too many..ah…k..k..Koreans…in Canada. Like when I say Koreans… there’s a lot of koreans living in Canada. There’s also a lot of Korean students going to Canada. And there’s a lot of Korean tourists going to Canada. Now, I love Korea, and I love Koreans. But if you’re going to Canada to study English or practice English.

Ah…You don’t want to be around a lot of Koreans cause you’re just going to speak Korean more than you speak English. Ok, so it’s very important to get away from the people who speak the same language as you. Ok. It’s very tempting. After a long day, you’re tired and you’re sick of English to go play with your Korean friends. And on the weekend… play with your korean friends. Ok.You’re not practicing your English. So, here are Canadian provinces, not all the Canadian provinces. Ontario… This is…ah…the province with Toronto and Ottawa. British Columbia. Vancouver.

Victoria. So Toronto, Vancouver, don’t study English there. You can see there’s a lot of Koreans there. These are the Koreans that live there. Korean-Canadians. And again as I said, they’re students and tourists. These are the cities I recommend. Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg. So you can see not many Koreans there. Good chance to practice your English Ok, another problem…the language schools. Now when you’re in Korea, you probably go to the uc5b4ud559uc6d0 [language school helpers] first. and you… you talk about studying English in Canada. And they might recommend Vancouver or Toronto. I hope you tell them: “No, no, no, I want to go to a smaller city.” But when they recommend Vancouver or Toronto…ah… They might get some incentive, some something, you know, money from… Vancouver language schools and Toronto language schools. These are big language schools.

They have a lot of students. They have a lot of…ah…money to try to get more students. So don’t trust the [language school helpers] too much, ok? And the language schools in Vancouver, Toronto very big very professional. And they are a problem because…I put three reasons here. First reason, they make it too easy…for students. Ah… Another reason they steal your English-speaking experiences. I’ll talk about this in a moment. And they control your money. Actually they control your time and money. So… Let’s go back to the stealing. Language stealing. So if you go to the language school in Vancouver or Toronto, ahh…they’re usual going to pick you up from the airport. They’re going to help you finding housing. Ahh…they help…they help you make a bank account and they have some weekend events for Saturday, Sunday. And they offer some class trips . Ahh…and I’m going to say this is stealing your language experience.

Remember you’re going to Canada to improve your English. It’s very important that you struggle and have a difficult time. That is where you’re learning to speak English. So, for example, if you go to make a bank account by yourself,.. wow, what a learning experience. You got to go open a bank account. You have to communicate what you need to the Canadian teller. And then you have a goal to accomplish. This is a really good learning experience. Not the ud559uc6d0[language school] or the language school taking you to the bank and helping you do everything.

And actually maybe you don’t even speak any English. Same with the weekend and class trips, you’re…you’re at the language school you’re in a class… most of your class, especially Vancouver ‘n Toronto,… are going to be other Koreans. Ok. Ah…over fifty percent of your classmates are going to be other Koreans. You’re going to have some international…uh…students there. Uh…Probably from Asia, Japan, China, Taiwan. You might have some European students – very few European students.

Maybe some South American and there’s a lot of Mexican students, too. Ah…great they’re also great to improve your .English But, you know, they’re controling your time and your money by offering their programs. You go out on a trip, you’re…you’re making friends and practicing English but really, your goal is to make Canadian friends and interact with Canadians. So I don’t really like this system. Uh… It’s ok, you know, it’s ok. It works, but I want you to try a more difficult and better way to really improve your English. Alright, let’s talk about Canada in a little more detail. This is Canada. I put the red pins: Vancouver, Toronto – Don’t go there.

Uh…I recommend middle Canada …the middle area…the middle cities. So yeah. Vancouver and Victoria. Vancouver, Victoria – beautiful cities. Ok, if you go to Canada, you must visit Vancouver. There is a good reason why many Koreans go to Vancouver. It is beautiful. So, spend a week travelling in Vancouver. But again, Don’t study English in Vancouver. Victoria very close to Vancouver. A lot of Koreans, but a better place to help improve your English. Ah…Alberta. Province of Alberta. Calgary, Edmonton. Perfect. These are perfect cities to study English. Ok. They’re about a million people each. Uhm…Not many Koreans. Safe places. Ah…you would have a great experience in these cities. Saskatchewan. Saskatoon. Regina. I…I’ll tell you I had a student who went to Regina for nine months. He said, he…he went to Regina. There was no Koreans. He was forced, he had to make Canadian friends. He came back his English was amazing. Ok. Just nine months in Regina.

You know he really improved his English. And he loved Regina. Of course Regina is not a perfect city. But he had a great time there. And he made Canadian friends. Winnipeg..uh..getting really interior, in the center of Canada. Another good place to study English. I’ve had some students go there. It’s a good place. Uh…Winnipeg. Uh…this area’s… I’m not going to lie. A little bit cold. So if you do go to Winnipeg, dress warm. But that’s part of the Canadian experience. Ah…this is the province of Ontario. This is where Ottawa and Toronto are. Now before I talk about Ottawa and Toronto, I’m just going to mention the East coast of Canada. There are some places… some good places to study English, but I’m sorry I don’t have much information about these places. Ok… I… I haven’t had many students that went to study out here. I haven’t traveled so much in this area. So I’m sure there’s good places in Eastern Canada, Uh…

But I can’t really recommend them today so I know about central Canada very well and I recommend this area. Alright, so, Ottawa, Toronto. Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. It’s a beautiful city. I think it’s okay to study English there. But Toronto – don’t study English in Toronto. Too many… too many Koreans in this area. And Koreatown…uh… if you study in Toronto most your friends are going to be Korean and you’re you’re eating…uh…

You know Korean food and doing Korean activities almost every day you know this is not part of the Canadian experience. Alright? Alright let’s do a summary of what I’ve been telling you. Be sincere about your goals. Remember your goal should be – improve my English. That’s your first goal. Make Canadian Friends. Alright, so all of your decisions focused on those things you have to achieve those things. So do not study English in Vancouver or Toronto. Ok? these are not good places to study English.

They do not help your goals because there’s too many Koreans in these cities. You are going to have a lot of Korean friends. You are going to go to Koreatown. You are going to be speaking more Korean than English Don’t go there. They’re great places to visit, but don’t study English in Vancouver. Get out of the uc5b4ud559uc6d0 [language school helpers] language school system. Uh…this is okay at first. I can understand why people might need this. but to spend one year in this system where they’re controlling your time and money and your selection of friends… is only your classmates. Uh…you got to getaway from this all right. Uh…be brave. Be strong. You can do it. You can get out of the system and start interacting with Canadians and living in Canada. So that brings us to participate in Canadian culture. You’re going to Canada (another country) to study English, but you have to participate.

You have to live in Canada. So you have to do things Canadians do. And you have to join clubs. And join classes. Meet Canadians. Alright, this is really important to improve your English. Ah…of course you’re going to have a great experience. You do not have to go to Vancouver or Toronto to have a great experience. You can go anywhere in Canada. I promise you. You will have a great experience. Ok? So, this goal is very easy. So, you do not have to study in Vancouver or Toronto. Alright. Some final words. Abroad is not the place to study, it’s the place to practice, experiment with, and test your English. And you should think this way too. Korea…you go to the language school, you study from a course book…uhh..

You study from a teacher. But when you go to Canada, you should get away from the teachers get away from the course book this is your chance to use real English in real situations. This will make your English better. Alright? You will learn very fast if you start thinking this way. Get out of the classroom. Alright. Thank you. I hope this video helps you. And remember, don’t study English in Vancouver.

Quick English Conversation: Meeting a Black English Teacher

{“en”:”Hi, everyone. My name is Brandon And in this video, we’re gonna help improve your English speaking ability. This video is going to be about my experiences with my students and their interactions with me as their black teacher. I hope you learn a lot. Please stick around. A lot of times when my students first meet me, this is the first time they are meeting or interacting with a person of my skin color. And the only interactions they’ve had prior to this is from music and the media. Movies, rap music – whatever. So when they try and greet me for the first time, they try to recreate the scenes from those movies. Such as doing a crazy handshake. And I don’t know what… I don’t know what they’re doing okay they’re…

They’re hipping and they’re hopping. Another thing they try to do is talk a lot of slang with me. “Hey, Dawg. What’s up? What’s up bruh? Where you from, man?” No. That’s not how you you start a conversation. And the third, and the worst thing they sometimes do, is they use bad words. I’m not gonna say these bad words, but just know never start a conversation using bad words. It’s very rude and crude. The proper way to do it is… if you’re meaning anybody, a black guy or whatever, treat them as any other person. You put your hand out. You say, “Hi, nice to meet you. My name is … What’s your name?” That’s it. In conclusion you guys. I’m just like any other person . I’m just like any other teacher. You do not as you treat me any other way just because the color of my skin. If you liked this video, please sub and subscribe. And thank you for watching.. “}
