Every few months I like to make a video for English learners to teach them some new phrases, and at the same time I like to use those phrases to encourage them. This English lesson will do just that!

How to Ask Fast and Natural Sounding Questions in English
413

You've probably learned by now that spoken English is a bit different than written English. As you learn English, you learn how to write it properly, and how to speak it slowly. Native English speakers tend to compress their sentences though when they speak at a normal rate. Sometimes a whole sentence sounds like one long word!

In this English lesson I'll go over the common, proper structure for forming questions, and then I'll let you know how I would actually say these in a regular English conversation. I'll be sure to give you the format for questions starting with: Where, What, How, Why, and When. Even though these questions will be about a trip, they can be adapted for any situation.

So take the time to enjoy this free English class. Watch it a few times and try to shadow me (repeat after me) when I ask the questions and give the responses so that you can train yourself to sound a bit more natural when having an English conversation.

I'm feeling way better! (I had COVID.)

Well I guess it was going to happen sooner or later. I got COVID towards the end of the Christmas holidays. One of my kids came down with it just before Christmas so we've been home now for 3 weeks as each person in the house got it and tested positive over time.

We tried to isolate from each other, but that didn't work out very well. There are just too many of us at home! Most of us had milder symptoms, although it did take Jen and I a few days longer than our kids to feel better. The power of youth! Their immune systems are so powerful! Thankfully Jen and I are both vaccinated and I'm sure that help a lot.

In this video I'll tell you all about it, and most importantly, I'll tell you how much better I'm feeling now!

Brand New Tongue Twisters! An English Lesson to Help You Pronounce Words with S/SH, H, R, TH, and W!
272

When you are learning English, the letters, S/SH, H, R, TH, and W can make some strange sounds.Β  It's a good idea to practice the sounds that these letters make with tongue twisters. Tongue twisters are phrases that are very hard to say clearly and quickly, even for native English speakers, and they will definitely improve your pronunciation.

In this English lesson I will help you learn 5 completely new tongue twisters that I wrote.Β  They are designed to help you practice pronouncing the S, SH, TH, R, and W sounds in English.

As an English learner you're probably looking for proven techniques that work when learning English.

Each technique, though old, will come with my personal recommendations on how to use the technique well when learning English. In my time as a high school teacher I've seen students use all of these techniques in ways that work well, and also in ways that fail.

How to Encourage Someone in English
402

Learning how to encourage someone in English is a good thing to do. Anytime you can be a positive person when learning English or in life in general it will make people treat you with kindness in return. In this English lesson I will do two things. I will give you some encouragement and I will teach you how to give others encouragement in English at the same time.

One of my favourite songs begins with this lyric, "Begin the day with a friendly voice..." I leave that as a hint, and you can figure out what song it is. It's an oldie, but a goodie. I think that phrase is very wise. A friendly voice, a word of encouragement, a smile instead of a frown can be a great way to start your day.

So I hope you enjoy this English lesson about encouragement. I hope you feel encouraged, and I hope you were able to learn a little bit of English along the way!

I made this video because I like talking about English language learning and I have ideas about what works best when you are learning English. Mostly I believe that you get good at what you practice when you are learning English.

Many of you have asked for an English lesson on how to use the verb TO GET in different sentences. I've been trying to write a script for an English lesson for a while now on this topic, and finally finished it and was able to record it today.

As an English learner you've probably heard the verb TO GET a lot! In this English lesson you'll hear 99 examples of how to use this word in English. I'll admit some of the examples are repeats, but hey, repetition is a great way to learn an English concept!

So here it is. 7 straight minutes of me talking and using the verb TO GET 99 times! All of the sentences used are correct informal English and are very common in everyday speech. I hope you enjoy this English lesson on the word GET. I do speak rather quickly, so you might need to turn on the word-for-word English subtitles or use the transcript.

Should You Learn to Swear in English? 🀬
437

In this English lesson I'll talk about whether or not it is important to learn to swear in English. English people do swear. I sometimes swear, but it is rare. In this English lesson I'll talk about when people swear, how often they swear, when they DON'T swear, and how important learning swear words are when you are learning English.

Basically, swearing is part of any language, and knowing when swearing is used, why it is used, and how it is used is a very important thing to know even if you don't plan on ever swearing yourself.

The last thing you want when speaking English is to use a swear word at the wrong time, when it is inappropriate, or in a way that doesn't make sense or offends people.

I hope you enjoy this English lesson about swearing!

Do You Need to Learn Phrasal Verbs? Are Phrasal Verbs Actually Used by English Speakers?
529

So you're learning English and you've discovered that learning phrasal verbs is a bit difficult. You might be wondering if you really need to learn them. Do native English speakers really use phrasal verbs in everyday speech? How could they? There are so many of them!

In this English lesson I'll examine a current song, a tv show, a Youtube video, and a news article and let you know if I find any phrasal verbs. I've also tried to keep track of how many times I've used phrasal verbs in English conversations over the last couple of days.

I won't give you the answer here as to whether you should learn phrasal verbs or not. I won't tell you if you should spend a lot or a little bit of time on it or no time at all.Β  You'll just have to watch the video to find out what I discovered!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that you will learn a few phrasal verbs if you watch the lesson as well. It's more than just me talking about them. I give a few definitions along the way as well!

Learn English Tenses: The Present Perfect
386

Welcome to this English grammar lesson about the present perfect tense. This is a very common English verb tense, and it can be a bit tricky for people who are learning English. It is one of the more advanced English verb tenses.Β  It is helpful to know it when you want to talk about actions where time is not important, time is not specified, or the action is not finished.

Once you master the conjugation and usage, you'll be able to use it in sentences like, "I have studied English since I was a kid!" You'll notice in this sentence we're talking about something that has no clear start or end. The time is not important so we use the present perfect tense.

I'll start by helping you learn how to conjugate in the present perfect for written and spoken English. This verb conjugation is made up of the subject, the verb "to have" conjugated, and then the past participle of the verb. I'll also make sure I help you learn how to use it in the negative, and how to form questions with the present perfect.

I hope you enjoy this English grammar lesson about the present perfect tense! I hope you're having a great day!

Don't Make These Mistakes When Using English Adjectives!
572

I've noticed that English learners sometimes get their adjectives mixed up. I actually make the same mistake when I'm speaking French! In this English lesson I'll look at adjectives that end in -ED and -ING and how they can have very different meanings when you use them to talk about yourself.

If you've ever said, "I'm amazing!", instead of, "I'm amazed!" you might smile a bit during this lesson when you realize what you actually said. One means you think you're cool, the other means you are looking at something that amazes you.

Learning English takes time, and sometimes along the way it's important to review and improve your use of adjectives. I hope this English adjective lesson brings a smile to your face and also helps you in your next English conversation!

I Make English Lessons For You! (And I Love It!)
474

This English lesson will be a little bit different. I thought I would just take a moment and explain to all my English learners the different types of lessons that I make.

Some of you are new here. Some of you have been around for a while. Regardless of how long you've been here you may not all be aware of the different free English classes and lessons I offer.

I make short English lessons every Tuesday. These are very concise and practical lessons that sometimes can also be entertaining and funny. In these videos I teach phrasal verbs, grammar, phrases, and sometimes I'll take you somewhere and teach you English on the spot, like at a gas station or at a restaurant.

I do a live English class every Friday at 7:30AM Eastern Standard Time. This class is on a specific topic, and is a great place to learn new English vocabulary and phrases. You can also ask me a question during the lesson. Please note a shorter version of this English learning video also comes out two days later for review.

I do a live Question and Answer lesson on Saturdays at 11:00AM Eastern Standard Time. During this class you can ask me a question about the English language and I'll do my best to give you an answer.

I also have a second Youtube channel where I create more advanced lessons every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. This lesson is great for English learners who are interested in learning phrases, phrasal verbs, slang and hearing regular everyday English. You can find that channel right here. Don't forget to subscribe!

5 Brain Games to Help You Learn to Think in English!
413

When you learn English it can be a bit boring. Learning to think in English can be hard. Games can make it more fun, and help you be more productive with your time! In this English lesson I'll teach you how to play 5 words games in your mind to help you practice your English while you are riding the train, when you're somewhere busy, or while driving in a car! This is super convenient learning, and these games can be played all by yourself!

Each game will help you practice a different aspect of the English language. Some are for practicing English words you know, others, along with a dictionary app, will help you learn new words!

I hope you enjoy this English lesson where you'll learn how to play 5 games in your mind as you practice your English!

Some of these are very hard for some English learners. Some of these phrases might be easy for you. Either way, take some time each day this week to practice these tongue twisters and help develop the ability to pronounce these sounds correctly when speaking English.

I hope you enjoyed this English lesson where you were able to learn a few more tongue twisters.

Have a great day!

In this English lesson we'll look at some activities that people do that are a little bit crazy. Learning English doesn't exactly give you a rush.

This English lesson will be a combination of a vocabulary lesson, but also a phrase lesson as I talk about a number of crazy things people do.

Do This! Don't Do That! English Learning Controversies!
401

There are as many theories on how to learn English as there are people. In this English lesson I look at the following four questions and give my opinion on each:

1) Do you need a native English teacher (versus a non-native English teacher) to learn English?
2) Should you use subtitles when watching an English video?
3) Do you need to learn English grammar?
4) Can you learn English just by listening?

I've spent quite a bit of time thinking about each of these, and I think you'll find my practical responses to each of these questions helpful as you continue to learn English.

After all, there is no right or wrong answer most of the time. The right answer is that you should be setting up a deliberate routine to study the English language that allows you to make good progress with your learning regardless of what others say you should or should not be doing!

I hope you enjoyed this English lesson! Have a great day!

Learning English? Find Out Why Speaking Practice is Important When Learning the English Language
503

When learning English, it is important to spend time reading, writing, listening, speaking, and building vocabulary. In my previous English lessons I've talked about the first three areas of study.

In this English lesson I'll talk a little bit about why speaking English regularly with an English speaking partner is incredibly important for your progress.

Of all of the areas you can study, speaking can be challenging because you need to find someone to talk to, and often you will have to pay for this type of English lesson, but it is worth it!

A speaking partner can immediately correct your mistakes, they can help you build confidence and the very nature of the conversation being stressful can help you remember more.

I hope you enjoy this English lesson about the importance of speaking English and having and English speaking partner!

Learning English? Find Out Why Writing is Cool and Important When Learning English
652

The cornerstones of learning English involve reading, writing, listening, speaking, and building vocabulary. As an English learner you will also study some grammar along the way.

In this particular English lesson I'll talk a little bit about why writing is both cool and important when it comes to studying English.

Of all of the areas you can study, writing certainly can be challenging and frustrating, but it can also help you power through any plateaus you have reached in your English learning. Writing improves your speaking and your ability to express yourself in English. Of all the ways you can get ready for an English conversation, writing just may be one of the best.

It helps you form ideas, thoughts, and sentences at your own pace, and it allows you to make the corrections you need before anyone sees it.

Sometimes when you are learning English you feel like you aren't making progress. You have hit a plateau. A plateau in learning occurs when you keep working at learning, but you can't seem to get better at the language.

An English Lesson about Marriage and a Q&A about Marriage with Bob and Jen - May 5 2020
1588

In this English lesson I have a special guest. I mentioned to Jen that I wanted to make an English lesson about marriage and I invited her to join. She said yes! We thought a good format would be to ask you for some questions about marriage and then take the time to answer them.

In this video Jen and I will teach you a few English words and phrases about marriage while we're answering some of your questions about our marriage and marriage in Canada.

I'll admit this is more of an English listening practice lesson than a true English lesson, but I do teach some English marriage words and phrases, and it does have word-for-word English subtitles if you need them. Be aware though that most of the lesson is spent responding to questions that some of you sent us.

It was a lot of fun to make this video. I hope that you enjoy it as well! Thanks for all the questions and once again I apologize that we could only answer about 30 of them. There simply wasn't time to answer over 200.

Have a great day!

P.S. We printed out all the questions and chose two per page. If I didn't answer your question it doesn't mean it wasn't a good question, but we needed to limit the question in some way.
