Welcome to the very first, all-English episode of DiGiLiSh. If you're a newcomer to the language, or want to brush up on basic grammar, you're in the right place! Take note that I will mention other grammatical terms during the lesson, these will be covered in other lessons (and, when they are, I will link to them in the video). I aim to make easy-to-understand lessons that are short and informative as they should be considered supplements to help you practice. These lessons are not good substitutes for actual classes with teachers! A large part of learning a language is repetition and exposure and a classroom (or even better, an English-speaking country!) is a much better environment for that. I strive to provide good, easy to read subtitles for my classes and, given time, I will try to expand the amount of subtitles for my classes to be in other popular languages, including Arabic, Turkish and Spanish! Take note! My pronunciation is American most of the time, but because I learned British English in school, I pronounce some words in a British way. Most obvious would be how I say A and An in this video, which are more akin to British English than American. So keep that in mind when you're watching. Thank you for taking your time to read this. I hope you found my lessons useful and that you will come back here again!

English for Beginners: Prepositions are short words that help us express location, time, and other relationships between people and things. Some examples of prepositions are: on, at, in, and by. Do you know how to use them? For example, do we say, "I am on a taxi" or "in a taxi"? Do you like to travel "in a plane" or "by plane"? After watching this simple but useful lesson, you will know exactly which preposition to use in any situation. Test yourself with our quiz: http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-the-prepositions-on-at-in-by/ TRANSCRIPT I'm having a hard time reading on the train right now. Unh. Hold on. I'll start the lesson. Hi. James from engVid. Sorry, I was on the train. I want to teach you a lesson about four basic prepositions that we use in English that sometimes get confused, and I understand why, so I'll keep it basic. But because it's basic, it's going to be 80% correct. That's a good thing, that means you can go to the website and learn more from other lessons we have. But just know that sometimes there'll be exceptions, and I may not cover it here today. I'll even give you two exceptions to help you, but why waste time? Let's go to the board. Here's Mr. E. You'll notice he has a calendar, he has a clock, and: "You are here"? Oh, here. "Here" is a location. We're here right now, doing a lesson. That's the location: engVid. Let's go to the board and do the rest of the lesson, shall we? Here's: "at", "on", "in", and "by". "At". I love it because it's very specific, so you always know where you are, exactly. Problem: For transportation, "at" doesn't have anything. Hmm. So let's go to the next one. Let's go to "on". On. "On" is used for, let's say, large vehicles or large ways of travelling, such as buses... Sorry. Trains, buses, planes, and boats. I'll come back to boat in a second; it's an exception. On the train, on the bus, and on the plane, unless you're Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or me-I'm not in that list-you don't have your own train, plane, or bus, so you usually share it with a bunch of people or a few people. It's large. So we say: "You're on the bus", because it covers a big area, so there are many people sitting in that area. When I get to location, you'll see what I mean. Boat is a small exception. For many people in the world, they have their own boats because maybe they do fishing, or rowing, which is a type of boat that you go by yourself. In that situation, you can use "in". So, if the boat is small enough, say: "in": "I'm in a boat right now." But if it's a big boat, you have to say: "I'm on a boat." Another exception for the "on" rule is bicycle. You're always "on" a bicycle. I know, I said big vehicles, but remember: a bicycle is small, and it doesn't really have a motor or an engine, so we kind of give it its own thing, because you have to sit on the bicycle, and you can never really be in a bicycle. Is that good? Now, let's go to "in". "In" is funny because there are only two things for "in". "In" we use for car and taxi. The easy way to think about it is usually you own your own car; it doesn't belong to a group of people. People just don't get on your car every time you stop it, they go in and say: "Take me somewhere." And a taxi, well, when you're in a taxi, it is kind of your car. You pay the driver and you keep the car. So, this is one of those few cases where, because it belongs to me, I am in my car or I am in the taxi, because the taxi belongs to me as long as I pay the money. It's one of these funny exceptions. I don't know why, because you can put more people in a car, but I guess because you can actually own this transportation, it's yours. Think of it like the small boat. The small boat, one person is in it, you can be inside of it. All right? Cool. The last one we're going to do is "by". This is how you get there. So, "by" is different. When we talk about "in" and "on", you are... We are talking about how you are in the vehicle. Are you sitting on the bicycle? I can see you on it? You know, a boat is on water. But "by" just means: How did you get here? So, when someone responds to you with: "By car", "by plane", they're telling you how they got here. Not if they're in the plane, or on the plane. They are just... That's how they got there. So, how did I get here to do this video? Wouldn't you like to know. I'm kidding. I came here by car. So, yes, I was in my car and drove here, but I would tell somebody: "I got here by car, not by bus", and that would tell them the difference in the transportation I took. "How did you get here?" You like that? Good, so that's "by", this is how you did it; and the way you travelled is here, "in" and "on". Remember there is a small exception for small vehicles, so a small boat you can be in. Remember small. And a bicycle, you're always on the bicycle, because people see you sitting on it. We good? Excellent. Now, that is the lesson for transportation.

Improve how you sound in English by mastering when these three words are used! I've met thousands of English learners at all levels. Most of them, even the advanced students, make mistakes with the words "a", "the", and "to". These are some of the most common words we use, so in this lesson I'm going to teach you how we use these words. I don't want to look just at grammar; I want you to understand these words and why we use them. If you're an advanced English student, this will be a great review for you. If you're a beginner, try to understand this and save yourself years of English mistakes. TAKE THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/instantly-improve-your-english-with-3-easy-words/ TRANSCRIPT Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. The things I do for love. There's not a thing... Hi. James from engVid. Today's lesson is about instantly improving. Now, I know... "Instant", what does that mean? People say it all the time. I want to show you a little trick that will make your English sound better instantly, and I will give you a technique that you can use after to help practice this. What I have found are students have a mistake or make a mistake when they drop these three words, and because of that I know you're not a native speaker. But today I'm going to address that, show you the three words... Okay? Explain why, and then I will give you a technique that you can use at home soon as you go back over this video or any video to practice it, and you will get instantly better. 10-20%. Okay? Want to know what I'm talking about? Let's go to the board and look at something you've learned, but today you're going to understand. You ready? So, Mr. E said: "Which three words can help you sound like a native speaker?" I'm going to help you a little bit by doing this, and then we're going to go to the board. The words I'm talking about, and you might not consider them words but they are words are: "a" or "an"... Okay, and I consider that one word because it's modified. Right? "The" and "to". Of course you're going to say: "Yeah, James, we know all these. We learned this at beginner, so how does that instantly help me improve my English?" The problem is this: When a person knows something they will talk, when they understand they will change their behaviour or they will use the information. Many students know about articles and the preposition "to", but they actually don't use them in sentences. Many times I've heard students go... Say: "I need to go work tonight." Soon as you say that I know you're not a native speaker. Or if they say: "I bought car yesterday" or "I bought food..." Not "some food". "I bought apple yesterday at the store." I'm like: "A-... You mean an apple, right?" They don't think to say it, because they know: "Teacher, you know what I'm saying." And I go: "Yeah, I know what you're saying, but the way you said it I know English is not your first language." So what I want to do is get you to come back to understanding, not just knowing why these words are important, the fact that, especially with the articles we're going to talk about, they are in most of the sentences. You can almost not get by a sentence without using them. So let's go to the board and take a look. First, what is an article? Well, you'll see an article is the letter "a" or "an". Quickly on that one, "an" is used when we have a vowel sound, sound... Not a... Not just a vowel. So when you say: "A apple", we know "a" and "a" make it difficult for us to actually get it out and for you to understand, so we add: "an" to put a consonant to make it easier for the listener. "I want an apple." Oh, okay, cool. How about "hour"? Teacher, that has an "h" in front of it. I'm like: "Enh?" But we say: "hour", we don't say: "h-our", because with "a" we have to say: "an hour", and that once again tells me one hour. You keep noticing I keep saying "one". I'll explain in a second. Now, this is what we call and indefinite article. I.e. it's not special. When I say to you: "I want a marker", a marker. All right? I'm talking about this. See this? They're all basically the same. I don't care what type of marker. "A" just means generally speaking marker. That's why it's indefinite; it's not special. When we look at the word "the", "the" is special. In this case, when I say to you: "I want the marker", which one do you think I'm talking about? Can you see the difference? Clearly. Even if you don't know, you would look and see four, and see this and go: "He's probably talking about this one." So with a definite article what's happening is someone is being very specific. Well, there are two things. They could say something is special or something is specific. Okay? And here we have definite article is "the". "Tell the man I like him." Okay? "Tell the man", in this case both of us have to know what you're talking about, because if there are 10 men you'll go: "Which man?"

We learn things throughout our entire lives, but we still don’t know everything because we forget a lot of information. Bright Side will tell you about 11 simple memorizing tips that will help you remember everything and improve your memory. TIMESTAMPS Why we forget things 1:04 How to remember everything 2:00 How to memorize something quickly 2:30 How to memorize something for a long time 3:20 Try to understand what you learn 4:17 Learn the most necessary information 5:11 Serial position effect 5:45 Interference theory 6:06 Learn opposite things 7:22 Build your own «mind palace» 7:22 Use «nail words» 8:19 Make up stories 8:40 Use a tape recorder 9:10 Visualize 9:51 Choose only the best materials 9:59 SUMMARY - Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly. A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going. - There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something. - To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it. The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes. You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax. Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours. And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information. Do you know any other memorizing tips? If yes, share them in the comment section below!

This lesson is an overview of the present perfect tense What it looks like, how to use it and when to use it! Structure: Subject + have/has + main verb (past participle form) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ If you don’t feel confident using the present perfect tense in English yet… There are probably a few reasons why! You need to know the past participle form of English verbs... And that can be pretty tricky with irregular verbs! 😳 And you need to understand how to use this tense! Perhaps you feel unsure about when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tenses. I will explain all of this inside this lesson. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ When using the present perfect tense, you need an auxiliary verb that helps your main verb to function. In the perfect tenses, the verb (to) have is always the auxiliary verb. In the present perfect tense, the main verb is in the past participle form. This is not difficult for regular past tense verbs. For regular verbs, the past participle form of the verb is the same as the past tense verb, so you just add -ed! But irregular verbs are different and the only way to learn the past participle form is to learn them individually. Past simple or present perfect tense? To answer this question you need to think about time. Finished time and unfinished time. Think about ‘last week’. That’s a good example of finished time. Last week is finished, it’s over. Yesterday, last week, last month, last year, 1991 - these are all examples of finished time… Time that is complete. What about ‘this week’? Is this week finished? No! Not yet. That is an example of unfinished time. There’s still more of this week to come. It’s not finished yet. When you are talking about a time period that has finished, use the past simple. When you are talking about a time period that is unfinished… Like today, this week, this month, this year, use the present perfect. Watch this lesson to learn when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tense.

How to become a better driver? Even the most experienced drivers don’t always know all the subtleties or nuances that can make driving easier. And most of them are convinced that if they know all the rules of the road, they’ll be ready for any situation that may occur. However, besides these rules, there are others that are no less important. And if you don't follow them, you may get seriously hurt even in a minor accident! Do you know how to figure out if your vehicle’s brake pipes are in good condition? Or why you shouldn't lift your whole foot off the floor when you switch from one pedal to another? Or how to wear your seat belt properly? Well, these things are really worth knowing! TIMESTAMPS: How to adjust your seat properly 0:58 How to check the brake pipes 5:32 How to wear your seat belt properly 6:57 How to switch from one pedal to another properly 8:13 #autos #cardriving #car Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - When you're in the driver's seat, your knees should be slightly bent. If you feel that you need to stretch your leg to reach the gas pedal, move your seat forward. - Your seat should be positioned in such a way that your hips are at the same level as your knees. If you can't clearly see out of all the windows or through the windshield, raise your seat. - The backrest should be reclined at about a 100-degree angle. This is the most comfortable position for your body. - The best way to hold the steering wheel is at 9 and 3. You know, this is when you imagine that your steering wheel is the face of a clock. Put your left hand where the 9 would be on the clock, and your right hand goes on the 3. - You should constantly keep an eye on the state of your brake pipes and brake pads. Even the tiniest crack on a brake hose can result in an accident because you won’t be able to stop the car. - To figure out if your vehicle’s brake pipes are in good condition, touch them. If they’re hard and crack when you try to bend them, they need replacing. - You should also remember that your foot typically stays on the heel when you position it over the accelerator. But when you move it over to the brake pedal, your heel may not be able to touch the floor. - The top strap should cross your chest and collarbone, and the lower strap should go across your hips. Do NOT place it over your belly. - If your car’s seat belts aren’t adjustable, you can always slide the seat further up or back. If nothing helps, get a padded belt cover.

Get my FREE ebook guide to learning Australian English: https://aussieenglish.lpages.co/ae-guide1/ My name's Pete and I'm the host of the Aussie English Podcast, a podcast dedicated to teaching people Australian English as well as general advanced English. Many of my students, listeners, and viewers, arrive in Australia, Down Under, with a solid level in English, but they don't speak as naturally and effortlessly as they would like to, just like native English speakers do. They often ask about the following topics: - How can I speak better informal English? - When do English speakers drop articles? - Is dropping articles common in informal English? - What tips do you have for advanced English learners? In this video, I talk about how native English speakers like to drop articles when writing informal English to close friends, colleagues, and family in emails, messages, and on social media. The trick here for dropping articles is to do it when the person you're writing a message or email to undoubtedly knows what you're referring too, and thus, doesn't need the article there. By doing this, you can write short, concise, messages and emails and sound a lot more like a native English speaker when you write in informal English. Watch this Advanced English Lesson video several times. Once to get a feel for the language used, and two or three more times to learn and then practice the English vocabulary that you hear and read on screen. ✔ Support Aussie English: http://bit.ly/2uhkFrh ✔ AE Classroom: http://bit.ly/2nddc9O ✔ Podcast/Website: http://bit.ly/2jSZ5zG ✔ Private lessons - http://bit.ly/2CZkhhM How can you help Aussie English? ▶️ 1.

Learn how to become a FLUENT and CONFIDENT English speaker by spending just 10 minutes a day. This is the JAM technique. For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hi and welcome back. In this video, I’m going to teach you one simple trick that you can use to become a fluent English speaker by spending just 10 minutes a day. The best part about this is that you don’t need a partner – you can do this by yourself. This is a technique that has worked for many of my students and if you do what I tell you in this video, I guarantee that you will become more fluent in English. So what is this trick? Well, it’s a technique known as JAM. Uh, no, not that kind of jam. This is actually a little fluency game based on a show that airs on BBC radio. The reason it’s called JAM is because it’s short for Just A Minute. This game has three stages. So here’s how you play it: You’re going to talk about a topic for one minute. That is, you’re going to give a speech without any preparation. So you just pick a topic - you can either take general topics like sports, hobbies, friends, books etc. or you can choose a question. For example, what is your favorite mode of transport? And once you have a topic, you speak. Now when you do, there are some rules: The first rule is that you cannot stop speaking. You must talk for the full minute. If you have to pause to catch your breath, it’s OK, but you cannot pause for more than three seconds. Even if you say nonsense or you say something unrelated to the topic it doesn’t matter. You’re just going to keep talking. So that’s rule number one. Rule number two is you cannot repeat the same ideas. That means you can’t just say the same things over and over and over again – this isn’t pronunciation practice – it’s fluency development, so no repetition of the same ideas. And rule number three is no writing – you cannot make any notes while you are speaking, you must only concentrate on speaking. These are just the three rules. So to begin, you need a timer, this can be on your smartphone for example. You start stage one by starting the timer and you speak until the one minute is reached. I’m going to give you an example of how to do this. I’m going to take this question: “What is your favorite mode of transport?” and I’m going to speak for a minute on this topic. Now I haven’t done any preparation, so let’s see how I do. OK, so what’s my favorite mode of transport? I would have to say that it’s the train. That’s because um, actually, you get to see a lot of nice scenery, beautiful landscapes and things like that. And you know, train journeys generally tend to be longer than other types of, or rather, other modes of transport. You can see I’m really struggling for ideas but I can’t stop, I have to keep going so I’m saying whatever comes to mind, that’s no problem. But back to the topic at hand, yeah, train journeys because they’re longer, they’re more relaxing. And one last thing I want to mention is that I’ve had the opportunity to meet interesting people and make friends on many train journeys. As a kid I used to ride the train a lot with my family. We used to go to lots of places by train and it’s actually something that I really enjoyed. Phew! That was hard. But that’s OK. That’s the whole point of this exercise. That was stage one. Now we’re going to move on to stage two. Here’s where we’re really going to start building our fluency. The first part of stage two is making notes – so you can use a paper and pen now. And you’re going to think back to the speech that you just gave, and collect ideas you came up with. In my speech, I remember that I had three ideas: The first was that on train journeys, you get to see a lot of beautiful scenery. The second idea was that train journeys are longer, so they’re more relaxing. The third idea was that you get to meet interesting people and make friends. So once you have these ideas down, you’re going to repeat the exercise. That means, you’re going to set your timer for one minute and you’re going to speak again on the same topic, but now, you can use your notes to guide you. You will notice that this time, you are actually able to speak more fluently because you have some good ideas on paper, and you will be able to expand on your ideas and give more information. Once the timer hits one minute, you stop. And we move on to stage three. Just like in stage two, you’re going to go to paper and pen, but this time, you’re going to add more ideas to your notes based on your second speech. I added some ideas like this. So now – for one final time, you’re going to speak again. This is your final speech. So you set your timer for one minute, you use your notes and speak. I’m going to give you my final speech based on my notes so you can see the difference.

This is lesson 1 in a still-to-be-finished series of beginner-level Swedish lessons. The aim for the finished course is to provide everything you need to understand the structure and grammar of Swedish. From there on you should be able to start studying real Swedish material and already understand the structure and grammar, so that you instead can focus on what's more important - the content. These lessons are entirely free in every way. They are made solely for the benefit of students of Swedish. You may use, copy, spread, download or upload them in any way you want. Please forgive me for my accent that appears at times. It's not always easy to switch between two languages with entirely different phonetics ten times a minute. There are probably several copyright abuses in these videos, namely pictures that have been taken straight off the internet. If you see a picture you own and want it gone, please contact me.

If you want to learn how to speak English, you've come to the right place. Our online lessons are created to get you speaking English in an intuitive way. As often as possible, we want to show you what we are talking about. You won't find much in the way of written text on our videos and that is intentional. We want you to think about English speaking in the same way that we all learned to speak our native languages as babies - by hearing it instead of reading it. Our program is designed to be an immersion experience. By watching our lessons you will form a direct link in your brain between an object and the English word for that object - without needing to translate via your native language. This video will teach you about how to choose between the articles "a" and "an." We use "a" before nouns that begin with a consonant and "an" before nouns that begin with a vowel. As awesome as our videos are, you can't learn English by just watching them. (We're great, but not that great!) English learning requires practice. You need to speak, and you need to speak out loud. When you see a mouth icon in the upper left corner of our videos, that's a sign that it's your turn to talk. Take this time to get in some practice! Repeat the words and sentences that we're saying. If we ask a question, answer it out loud. Rewind the video as many times as you need to until you can do it without our help. Don't be shy. Your parents, your siblings, and your friends might laugh at you a bit, but they're secretly jealous of how much progress you're making learning English. Better yet, ask them to practice out loud with you. Feel free to upload video responses of yourself practicing out loud so we and your fellow students can give you constructive feedback and advice.

How to eliminate blind spots? How do you know when to stop as you are parallel parking? What should you never do before making a left turn? Even the most experienced drivers don’t always know all the nuances that can make driving easier. Bright Side explains how to feel at ease when driving, learn to avoid dangerous situations and become a confident driver. Every tip we are going to share is very important, so you’d better not miss any of them. TIMESTAMPS Get to know your vehicle 0:48 Check if all your mirrors are adjusted correctly 1:45 Don't drive in someone else's blind spot 2:26 Learn to feel where the wheels are 3:13 Park guided by your windows and mirrors 3:51 Learn to drive in bad weather 4:44 Dry your brakes after driving through a puddle 5:30 Watch out for the maneuvers of taller cars in front of you 6:06 If the car doesn’t start, turn the high beams on 6:35 Lower your rear-view mirror at night 7:00 Turn on the air conditioner 7:19 Use the handbrake regularly 7:34 If a car in the neighboring lane is slowing down, follow suit 7:54 Don’t let the illusion of low speed deceive you 8:12 Don’t turn the wheels beforehand when making a left turn 8:44 SUMMARY - Believe us, when you hit the roads you will have many things to worry about rather than finding the switches for your front and rear fog lights or your hazard light button. See it as getting ready for an important exam. The more time you take preparing for it and the better you know the material, the less stress you will have during the exam. - To eliminate blind spots, adjust your side-view mirrors so that you can’t see your car in them. To check if there is a blind spot, drive past another parked car in reverse, looking in your side-view mirror. As soon as it’s out of the picture, you should see it with your peripheral vision. - If you find yourself in a dangerous position, change it. A dangerous position is when you are driving along to the right and slightly behind another vehicle. You are likely to be in their blind spot, so they don’t see you. - If you want to avoid potholes on the road, you need to learn to feel where the wheels are. Feeling your vehicle is the key to being able to control it and it is crucially important for safe driving. - When perpendicular parking, stop once you see the curb under the side mirror. This way the distance between the car and the curb will be minimal, and you won’t scratch the bumper. When parallel parking, make sure you don’t scratch the hubcaps. Stick a piece of colored duct tape to the bottom of the windshield. - You never know what might happen and when you are going to have to drive in bad weather conditions, so it is better to be prepared. The best thing about practicing is that you can choose the time and place to do it. - Before even the smallest of puddles, you’d better slow down and go through it smoothly without maneuvering or changing speed. If you drive quickly, there is a chance of water getting into the ignition system and making the engine stall. - Drivers of taller vehicles (truck and buses) see road situations much more clearly. If they start to change lanes all at once, it’s likely that they saw a car accident or a different kind of roadblock. - In the times of global climate change, you never know where and when winter might come after you. Sometimes in winter the car just won’t start on the first try. It is not a reason to panic, call for help, or use public transportation instead. - To avoid being blinded by a car behind you, change the angle of the mirror by pulling down the lever under it. - Even when you don’t use the air conditioner (for example, in winter), turn it on regularly for a short period of time. - Even if you don’t do angle parking, use the handbrake regularly to keep it alive. The only exception is very cold weather. In such conditions, you’d better avoid using the handbrake so that the brake pads don’t freeze. - If you see a car in the neighboring lane slowing down, you should do the same. It’s likely that the driver wants to let a pedestrian or an animal pass. - On a straight road, the speed seems to be two times lower than it really is. It makes you want to speed up to give your vehicle a chance to show its full power. - It’s dangerous to turn the wheels in advance before making a left turn. They must be in the initial position. If a car hits you from the back, you might be thrown into the opposite lane where hitting other cars will be inevitable.

In this lesson of English Learning you will learn to use articles in your daily speaking conversation to develop your personality. There are two articles – A or An and THE A or An is called the Indefinite Articles, because it usually leaves indefinite the person or thing spoken of; such as A doctor; that is, any doctor THE is called the Definite article, because it normally points out some particular person or thing; such as, He saw the doctor; meaning some particular doctor. Well we all know there are 26 alphabets. I’m sure all we know vowel is quite well. There are five vowels a,e,i,o,u. We use “an” before a vowel sound. For instance, An ass An enemy An ink-pad An orange An umbrella. It will be noticed that the words such as An hour An honest An heir Begin with a vowel sound, as the initial consonant h is not pronounced. Before a word beginning with a consonant sound A is used; such as A boy A woman A yard A horse A hole Again, it will be noticed that the words such as A university A union A European A ewe A unicorn A useful Because these words begin with a consonant sound that of yu. Now, let’s see how to use of THE definite article If we want to place an article THE in your sentences or when you will write THE. We should remember that we are talking about something specific. For example, The car I bought broke down. Here speaker talks about the specific car. Now let’s see how to use THE in another ways. When we are referring to a group of people by use of an adjective rather than a noun, use "the". the elderly the disabled the unemployed the rich the sick the needy the homeless the young the restless The definite article ‘the’ is used in the following cases. When a singular noun represents a whole class. The camel is a beast of burden. (Here the singular noun camel is used to refer to all the camels.) Note that when a plural noun is used to talk about things in general, articles are usually omitted. For examples Camels are beasts of burden. Computers are expensive. Note that the article ‘the’ is never used before the nouns ‘man’ and ‘woman’ when they represent the whole class. Man is mortal. (NOT The man is mortal.) While speaking of something or somebody already referred to The boy who came to see me yesterday was my brother. The story that he told us yesterday was very interesting. While speaking of a particular person or thing The poor beggar could get no alms. When you refer to classics and holy books Examples are: The Ramayana; The Mahabharata; The Iliad Note that when the author’s name is mentioned with the book, the article is usually omitted. Homer’s Iliad (NOT Homer’s the Iliad) While referring to the names of journals and newspapers The New York Times The Wall Street Journal When we refer to imaginary geographical lines Examples are: The equator; the Tropic of Cancer; the Tropic of Capricorn; the latitude; the longitude

Did you know that reading is one of the best ways to improve your speaking? On the other hand, many students don't enjoy reading because they believe they are too slow, and it discourages them. Some students even say they forget a sentence as soon as they've read it. If you want to improve your reading and your speaking, this video is for you. I will teach you two techniques you can use to read faster and more efficiently: grouping and pacing. If you follow the tips in this video, you can cut your reading time in half! TAKE THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/how-to-read-faster-2-tricks/ WATCH NEXT: 1. How to remember anything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfHNo9HlC8c 2. Use mind maps to understand and remember what you read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1rwf370z5E #engvid #SpeedReading #LearnEnglish TRANSCRIPT Man, I really have to read this book and I just don't have the time. Hi. James from engVid. If you're like me, you have to read a lot of material. If you are studying English or you're learning English, you probably don't like to read, which is too bad, because reading is one of the fastest ways to improve... Well, let's go to the board and find out. As you can see, E is running very quickly, here. Right? And he's trying to read. So, we're going to learn to read faster today, and I'm going to teach you how to read faster with two different techniques, and I'm going to teach you... You'll start to enjoy your reading. So we'll go to the board and we'll talk about reading, why it's important, and what we can do about it. The first thing I want to talk about with reading: Reading helps to do a couple of things. Number one, it helps you to learn new things. When you read a book about philosophy, it teaches you about somebody's new idea or a new invention. It gives you new vocabulary. Many words... In fact, they say if you don't understand 90% of the material, you won't understand it; but even just reading something, if you have a dictionary, will help you go and learn new vocabulary to understand material, so it gives you new words; it gives you a better or a wider way to speak. It helps you to understand. Sometimes when someone says something it's a little too fast, but then when you read it, you have time to read it, go back, read it, go back, read it, and go: "I got it." Right? It gives you time to look at the picture; the mental picture or the written picture. It gives you new ideas. Remember you learn new things? Well, when you start adding idea from this book, idea from that book, you get new ideas of your own; you become more creative. Your world becomes a richer place to live. And, finally, because we're doing English, you learn how to speak a language. Like: "Stop. What do you mean? How do I learn to speak by reading?" Well, for you people who are learning to speak a language-okay?-reading shows you the structure that people use when they speak. Reading shows you new vocabulary, or it shows you what we call the colloquial; the common person's way of speaking. You get all that from reading; how to say it, where to put the verb and the noun or the adjective. Right? Cool? That's what it can do, and that's what's important to us. Our reading is going to teach us how to speak, but also it's good to be able to read in a country, because I often say: If you cannot read in a language, you're stupid. And if you wonder what I mean, think about the guy who when you give a simple sentence, like: "The cat went in the house", cannot read it and he reads it like: "The cat went in", you go: "The guy's stupid." Don't be stupid. Don't be stupid in your language; don't be stupid in my language. So today we're going to work on a process to help you with reading. Now, as much as I said all these great things about reading, there are a couple of things to be aware of, or... Actually, I don't have to tell you. You know, but I want you to know that I understand, so I'm putting it on the board so you know what I'm going to teach you will help you overcome or help you solve that problem. Problem: Reading takes a long time. Well, in your own language it takes some time, but if you're learning another language, it will always take you much longer to read because you have a problem of translating, or skipping back and translating. Translating, you know what I mean; you translate from the language you're looking at into your own language to understand it, and then translate it back to that language - that's a lot of work. And if you think about how long that takes, that's like two different trips, like: In, out; in, out; in, out for every word. That will take... Something that takes four minutes to read - make you read it for 20 minutes. And who wants to read one paragraph or five sentences, and it takes 10 minutes, and you still don't understand it? That's a problem. Another problem: You don't remember what you read. Do you remember when I said to you: "You're reading up and down"? […]

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

How to Play Chess. Who doesn't want to be a cool intellectual and play chess like a pro? This game definitely stands out from everything else and has tons of admirers all over the world. So do you want to join in and learn the basic rules and even some winning tricks and techniques? In that case, this video guide is what you’ve been looking for. To win and become a true chess champion, your task is to checkmate your opponent's king. It may sound like a piece of cake, but it's way more complicated than you might think! Checkmate basically means putting the king in a position where he’ll be captured because he can't move or be protected by any other piece. The more of your opponent's pieces you capture, the easier it'll be to checkmate. Just don't focus all your energy on this. Your own king should be properly protected at all times so that your opponent can’t get to him. To win and become a true chess champion, your task is to checkmate your opponent's king.

TIMESTAMPS Introduction to chess 0:50 The rook 1:40 The “horse” or “knight” 2:25 The bishops 3:03 The king and queen 3:25 Pawns 4:34 How to win at chess 5:29 The strong points of all pieces 7:00 How to make your own rules on the chessboard 9:06 How to make an “en passant” move 10:27 How to do a “pawn promotion.” 11:20 How to make a “castling” move 11:47 Music: Staccato https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -A chessboard consists of 64 square spaces. There are files, which are the columns going up and down, pointing at you and your opponent and marked from A to H. And then there are ranks: the horizontal rows from 1 to 8. -The rook is placed at the corners of the board, which are A1 and H1 for one player and A8 and H8 for the other. The best thing about rooks is that they can move any number of vacant squares both vertically and horizontally. -Knights are placed on squares B1 and G1 for one player and B8 and G8 for the other. Unlike rooks, knights can jump over other pieces, and they're actually the only piece that can do that. -Bishops can move over any number of free squares in a diagonal direction. Just like rooks, they can capture an opponent's piece standing in their way by stopping on that piece's square. -You only get one queen (D1 for a white queen or D8 for a black queen), and she’s the most powerful piece on the board — basically the rook and bishop combined. The king's place is one of the 2 last empty squares: E1 and E8. The king isn't as powerful as the queen and can only move one square at a time horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. -Pawns take the rows from A2 to H2 for one player and from A7 to H7 for the other. Pawns move one square forward with one exception: the first time they move, pawns can go forward either one or 2 squares. -Checkmate basically means putting the king in a position where he’ll be captured because he can't move or be protected by any other piece. The more of your opponent's pieces you capture, the easier it'll be to checkmate. -Pawns, for example, are stronger when they're together in chains to protect one another. Knights can control up to 8 squares, but when you put them near the edge this number gets cut in half. Bishops are at their strongest when they're on or near long diagonals - they can control more squares. Rooks have the most power in open files. -If you want to make your own rules on the chessboard and be the main force of the game, try to control the center of the board. Your opening can help you do that: a D or E pawn is a great way to start and open the center of the board. -“En passant” is a special capture move that a pawn can make. If you're playing with white, your pawn must be on the fifth rank for it, and it's the fourth rank for black. -If a pawn reaches the far side of the board, which is the eighth rank for white and the first rank for black, it must immediately be promoted to any other piece (except for the king). -To make the “castling” move, move your king 2 squares toward any rook, and then hop that rook over the king so it lands on the square next to the king.

In the age of gender equality, some may consider “ladylike” or “gentlemanly” conduct old-fashioned, snobbish, or just plain unnecessary. But there are still those of us who want to show sophisticated and refined behavior. In this video, we’ll tell you about all the rules of ladylike behavior that are necessary to know in order to be revered by those around you and make your life more comfortable. And for the gentlemen out there feeling left out, you can learn from some of these too! TIMESTAMPS When you have guests 1:03 When you are a guest 1:18 In a restaurant 1:42 Communication rules 2:37 Table manners 3:00 General rules 3:58 Public coatrooms 4:27 Car etiquette 5:05 - If guests come to your home for the first time, show them where the bathroom is so they can freshen up. After that, you can invite them to join the others. - Bring a small gift for the host. It doesn't have to be anything expensive. Try a bottle of wine, a box of cookies, or perhaps something for their vacation home or hobby. - If you need to brush your hair, do it in the ladies' room. Nobody wants to find a hair on their plate or on the table. - Don't forget about etiquette rules at home. For instance, it’s rude to shout to another person from a different room. Besides, you might get used to doing this, and it’ll make guests feel uncomfortable. - Don't take forever choosing the best piece of food on the serving plate. Take the nearest piece to you. You wouldn't want to give the impression of being selfish and greedy, would you? - If you’re on a low-sitting chair, don't cross your legs. Hold your knees together and lean them to the side. This is called “the Duchess Slant”. You can, however, cross your legs at the ankles, also known as “the Cambridge Cross”. Are there any other etiquette rules you consider really important? Then tell us about them in the comments section! SUMMARY So if you feel that you’re a real lady inside but are just a bit confused by all the intricacies of proper behavior, don't worry! Etiquette rules are quite simple if you just give them a try and incorporate them into your lifestyle. Plus, let’s be honest, no matter what gender you are, nobody wants to come off as uncivilized or rude to others!

Transcript: I can speak English, but before I say anything, I have to make a sentence in my native language, translate that into English, and then say it. I feel like I’m not speaking fluently because of this. That is one of the most common complaints I hear from my students. So in this lesson, I’m going to teach you three exercises that will help you to stop translating in your head. These exercises will make you think 100% in English and speak fluently without hesitation. So, let’s jump right into it. Here is exercise number one – Make sentences in your head. This is the number one fastest way to start thinking in English. Throughout your day, make sentences about what is happening around you. For example, let’s say that you’re sitting on the bus and you’re going somewhere. In your head, you can start talking in English – “I like this seat, it’s nice and comfortable. Look at that couple sitting over there – what are they doing? They look very happy. They’re joking and laughing about something. Anyway, let’s look out the window. Oh, what a beautiful park. I wish I could visit it sometime.” And so on. You can do this in any situation: when you’re at home, when you’re bored at work or school, when you’re waiting at the doctor’s office, when you’re walking in the park and so on. And it will train your brain to make sentences in English. Now, while you are doing this, if you start translating, it’s OK – don’t get disappointed, because as you keep practicing, you will collect more and more sentences for everyday situations, and over time, you will translate less. Remember to do this exercise many times every day – make it a habit to regularly make sentences in your head. Exercise number two is prepare sentences for conversations. For this exercise, think about a conversation that you are going to have in the future, and come up with sentences that you can use. For example, if there’s going to be a meeting in your workplace tomorrow, what would be some useful sentences? Well, if you’re going to present an idea to your colleagues, you might say – “I strongly believe this will help our sales.” a-ha! Keep that in mind to use tomorrow. Maybe you have a colleague (let’s say his name is Teddy) and he always interrupts you while you talk – if he does that tomorrow, you can say “Hold on, Teddy, let me finish!” – there’s another sentence. In this way, for upcoming conversations, you can prepare a lot of sentences and have them in your mental store – and you can even write them down to review later. As you do this exercise more and more, you will be able to use these sentences in many future conversations automatically without thinking too much. So take time to regularly prepare sentences for conversations. Exercise number three is recap your day. Do you know the meaning of ‘recap’? Recap means to remember and summarize something – in this case, your day. So this is an exercise you should do at the end of the day – maybe just before you go to bed – or you can even do this as you’re lying in bed before you go to sleep. Imagine that you’re telling a friend about your day in English – you might say “Today was a regular day for the most part. One interesting thing that happened in college was that a friend of mine told me she’s got an internship interview coming up in two days. So I helped her prepare for it.” and so on and so forth, you get the idea. You can also make sentences about how you felt about the different things that happened, you can say what you expect to happen tomorrow etc. Aim to do this for about 5-10 minutes before you go to sleep. What I like about this exercise is that you can do it at the same time every day, which means it’s very easy to make this a habit. And so all this practice in making sentences will help you think in English automatically. OK, those are my top three exercises for learning to think in English – make sentences in your head throughout the day, prepare sentences for conversations, and recap your day before you go to sleep. As a bonus tip, there’s one more powerful exercise that you can use to build your fluency, and it’s called JAM. This is short for Just-A-Minute, and it’s a fantastic speaking exercise that you can do by yourself to improve your fluency. If you want to learn it, I have a lesson just on this exercise - you will find the link in the description, so make sure to check it out.

The difference between Present Perfect tense (We have gone) and Simple past tense (we went) – English Grammar Lesson Take the quiz : http://www.learnex.in/present-perfect-tense-we-have-gone-vs-simple-past-tense-we-went/ In this lesson, you will learn the difference between the present perfect and simple past tense. Often, people get confused when to use the above sentence structures. The Present Perfect tense: is used to speak about an action is completed in the present time period. This structure is always linked to the present time period and cannot be used to speak about an action that was completed in the past. It is also used to speak about an action that has no specified time. The verb is in the past participle form. Example 01: I have watched three movies this week. (‘this week’ is the present week. Use the present perfect tense with terms like ‘today’ ‘this morning’ ‘this year/month’) Example 02: I have completed my graduation. (time not specified) Example 03: My uncle has gone to New York three times. (We use the present perfect because he exists in the present and so far he has gone to New York thrice) Example 04: I have lived in London for seven years. (I still live in London in the present, till date) Negative Sentences: Use ‘not’ in the negative. Example 01: I have not seen John today Example 02: I have never eaten Chinese food. (till date I haven’t eaten Chinese) Questions: Place ‘have/has’ before the subject: Example 01: Have you ever watched a horror film? Example 02: Have you read ‘the secret’? The Simple past tense: is used to talk about a action that was completed in the past. The verb is in the past form. Example 01: I watched three films last week. (last week is a past time frame and so we use the past form ‘watched’) Example 02: I lived in London for seven years. (we use the past ‘lived’ as I no longer live in London in the present) Example 03: I completed my graduation in 2013. Example 04: My uncle went to NY three times. (here we use ‘went’ because he no longer exists in the current) Negative sentences: Make negatives using ‘did not/didn't’ followed by a verb in the present form. Example 01: I didn't see John yesterday. ( not ‘didn't saw’) Example 02: I did not have pizza last night. Questions: Use did before the subject to make a question. Example 01: Did you read the news paper yesterday? Example 02: Did you call me last evening?

A straightforward explanation of Climate Change: the heat from human emissions is roughly equal to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs every day. Historically, every time carbon dioxide levels increase in Earth's atmosphere, the average surface temperature increases, ice melts, and the seas rise.

Broadcast for the week beginning November 30, 2014. God loves us and desires to meet the needs of our lives. He promises to answer our prayers, but not always according to our timing or method. Dr. Stanley reminds us that waiting on the Lord is a vital principle for every Christian. God, above all others, knows when the timing is right for His perfect plan to go into action. After all, He knows our lives from beginning to end, so He knows exactly where we are at this moment. For more on this topic, read the article at http://bit.ly/30lps14.

http://www.engvid.com/ I have too much homework. You can never have too much money! I have a lot of lessons! In this grammar lesson, I will teach you when to use "too much", "too many", and "a lot of". You will learn about countable and uncountable nouns, and also about the difference in talking about "good" nouns and "bad" nouns. Watch the lesson, then take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/basic-english-grammar-too-much-too-many-a-lot-of/ TRANSCRIPT: Peekaboo. How are you? My name is Ronnie. I'm going to teach you some English. Imagine that I would teach you English on EngVid, www.engvid.com. Today's lesson is good versus bad with nouns. I hear this mistake a lot, almost every day. So I want to help you. I want you to sound as natural as possible when you speak English. So maybe you have already learned that we have uncountable and countable nouns. Now, what this means -- if you haven't learned this before -- is that if a noun is uncountable, we do not put an S at the end of the noun. So things that are really teeny tiny small like rice or sugar or salt are uncountable. Things that are liquid -- for example beer or water -- are uncountable. So all liquids and tiny things are uncountable. Also, gases are uncountable. That wasn't me. So I could go on with a massive list of uncountable nouns, but you can do that yourself. Then, we have countable. Countable, obviously, you can stick an S on the end of the noun. So most things are countable. For example, dogs, hamburgers, cats, markers, eyes, hair -- hair is uncountable because there are so many tiny little hairs on one heads. So this is the rule that you have learned. If your noun is uncountable, you have to say "too much". So maybe you have come up with a sentence that says, "I have too much sugar." Good. Okay. So you know that sugar is uncountable, and you have used a very good English sentence. You used, "I have too much sugar." Good. And then, your teacher says, "Okay. Make a countable noun sentence." Okay. "I have too many pens." I have a lot of pens. "I have too many pens." Very, very good grammatical sentences. But there's a problem. Bad nouns. Bad, bad, bad nouns. Bad nouns, what I mean is when we use "too much" or "too many", your noun has to be something that you do not like okay? For example, maybe you go to school and your teacher gives you homework. Do you think homework is a bad noun or a good noun? What's your opinion of homework? I hate homework. I hate it. It's boring. I hate it. I hate it. So in my opinion, homework is a bad noun. So I'm going to say, "I have too much homework." Because homework is a negative or a bad thing, I can say, "Oh, God. I have too much homework tonight." Okay? "Too much" and "too many" are always going to be for negative or bad things that you don't like. So "too many" -- maybe you go to the movie, and it's really, really crowded. You can say, "There are too many people." Now, maybe you like people. Maybe you don't like people. But in this situation, having a lot of people is bad. So once again, it is your opinion. "Too much" and "too many" are always for things that you do not like personally or you think are bad at the moment. For example, "There are too many calories in seven cookies." I like cookies. Who doesn't like cookies? I love cookies. But calories, they're bad. So I can say, "There are too many calories." Okay? "There is too much rain in the rainy season or in spring. There's too much rain. I don't want any more rain." Okay? Now, in the reverse, we have the beautiful, lovely, happy good things. The beautiful, lovely, good things are my good nouns. Good nouns, as you might have guessed, are things that you like. For example, beer. You will never, ever, ever, open your fridge and go, "Oh, no. I've got too many beers. I've got too much beer." This will never happen. You will never go to the bank machine and go, "Look at that. I've got too much money." Never happens. So when it's a positive thing, what you're going to say is "a lot of". For example, "I have a lot of friends." Friends are usually good things. Or if you're lucky, you might say, "I have a lot of money." If you have a lot of money, Ronnie would like some money. Donate money. Money, money, money. Okay? "I have a lot of money." "I have a lot of beer." Yes. "I have a lot of friends." The cool thing about "a lot of" is that it can be used for both countable and uncountable. It's very, very natural in English that we say "a lot of" as opposed to "too much" or "many". All the time. So what I want you to do is I want you to get a lot of happiness in your life. I don't want you to have too much homework. I don't want you to have too many bad people in your life. And I want you to enjoy learning English. Until then, goodbye.

All MODAL VERBS lessons: https://goo.gl/v9fCh8 Transcript: ‘Have been’, ‘has been’ and ‘had been’. These forms cause a lot of confusion for many people. Well, in this video, I will clear up that confusion. I’m going to teach you the three main uses of these forms how to use them correctly without making mistakes. As always, there is a quiz at the end of the video to test your understanding. Alright, let’s get started. Before we talk about the uses, you need to know the basics of where to use have, has and had been: in the present, if the subject of a sentence is I/You/We/They or a plural noun, then we use ‘have been’. If the subject is He/She/It or a singular noun, then we use ‘has been’. This is when we talk about the present. When we talk only about the past, it’s very easy. For any subject, we use ‘had been’. OK, let me test you: what do we use with He/She/It or a singular noun in the present? We use ‘has been’. What about with I/You/We/They or plural nouns? We use ‘have been’. And in the past tense? We use ‘had been’ for all subjects. Good, so let’s now look at the first use of these forms. This is in the present perfect tense. That is, to talk about actions or situations that started in the past and are still continuing. Here’s an example: “I have been working as a teacher for 7 years.” In speech, we usually shorten ‘I have’ to ‘I’ve’ – “I’ve been working as a teacher for 7 years.” Let’s look at a timeline for this. You know that I started working as a teacher seven years ago (or in 2010 because at the time of filming this video, right now, it’s 2017), and I’m still a teacher, so this action – ‘working’ is continuing. In this sentence, we can also say: “I have been working as a teacher since 2010.” The difference between ‘for’ and ‘since’ is that if you want to mention the duration (or amount of time), then you use ‘for’ (like ‘for 7 years’). If you want to mention the starting point of the action or situation, use ‘since’ (as in ‘since 2010’). Here’s another example: let’s say that this lady wants to see the doctor. Her appointment was at 3 o’clock. She came to the hospital at 3, but the doctor wasn’t there. So she started waiting at 3 o’clock and she’s still waiting – let’s say it’s 5 o’clock now, so two hours have passed. So what can we say? We can say: “She has been waiting for two hours.” or “She has been waiting since 3 o’clock.” In natural speech, we say he‘s been and she’s been: “She’s been waiting”. OK have a look at this sentence: “He has been the CEO of the company for four months” or we can say ‘since June’ because that’s when he started. Here, we don’t have an –ing verb like ‘working’ or ‘waiting’. That’s because we don’t want to focus on any action, we just want to express the situation – that he became the CEO in June and he’s still the CEO. Here’s another example: “They’ve been married for 25 years / since 1992.” When did they get married? In 1992. Are they still married now? Yes. So, they’ve been married for 25 years now. OK, so what about ‘had been’? Well, let’s change our sentences a little bit: “I had been working as a teacher for 7 years when I quit my job.” Ah, we see a different meaning here. It means that I started working as a teacher at some point in the past, I was a teacher for 7 years, but then I quit. So now, I am no longer a teacher. I want you to notice that there are two past actions here: one continuous action (“I had been working as a teacher”) and a single finished action at the end of that (“I quit”). Compare this to the previous sentence – “I have been working as a teacher” – here, there is only one continuous action and it’s still continuing, it’s not finished. So, please remember this rule: only use ‘had been’ if there were two events in the past: a continuing action or a situation and a single, finished action. So let’s go back to the other sentences. With these, we can say: “She had been waiting for two hours when the doctor finally arrived.” “He’d been the CEO of the company for only four months when it went bankrupt.” ‘Went bankrupt’ means the company lost all its money and closed down. “They had been married for 25 years when they divorced.” So are they still married? Unfortunately, no. Just like the sentences with ‘have been’ and ‘has been’ are in the present perfect tense, the sentences with ‘had been’ are in the past perfect tense.
