Learn English: FOOTBALL Vocabulary
GOAL!!!!! In English, is the game called 'football' or 'soccer'? How do you tell someone who's winning and what the score is? Just in time for the FIFA World Cup, a sports vocabulary lesson! Are you supporting Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, or another country? Let me know in the comments! And take a quiz on this video here: http://www.engvid.com/football-vocabulary/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, guys. What's happening? Right now, it's World Cup. Are you watching? I think the world is watching the World Cup. Today, I'm going to teach you about football. Please, please, please, please, please do not call it "soccer". Let's go through this. In Canada and in America, people are quite stupid, including me. For some reason, people like to say "soccer". Let's imagine that we are playing a game with your foot and a ball. Well, I would call that "football". So one rule that I have if you ever meet me is please don't call it "soccer". It's "football". In kind of a slang kind of way, you can call it "footy". It's more British English, but you can call it that just as long as you do not call it "soccer". Please do not call it "soccer". Just to clarify this for you. The organization is called FIFA. What do you think the F stands for? It's not called "SIFA"; it's called "FIFA". It's called "football". So need I remind you; do not say "soccer". Thank you. Public service announcement is now over. Let's get into the game. Maybe you are very excited to watch the game. You are not sure what verb to use in English because we have "look", "see", and "watch". This is easy. Because everyone's running and smashing and biting people -- don't bite people when you play football. You're going to actually watch the football game. So you can say to your friends, "Hey! Let's watch the game." And your friend says, "Yes! Let's do that. I'm excited." So maybe you get to the game late, and the game's already started. So you can say to someone, "What is the score?" Okay? So if it's present tense, we want to use "is" because it's present tense. "What is the score?" Maybe the person will tell you, "It's 2-1 for -- let's say -- Brazil." Hi, everybody from Brazil. This means that Brazil is winning because I tell you the name of the country. I would never tell you the team's losing. Okay? We actually don't have a word for this little hyphen here when we talk about a score. So we say, "It's 2-1 for Japan." Okay? Or, "It's 3-2 for Algeria." If you want to find out the past tense -- maybe you missed the game entirely because you have a job. I have a job. I miss games. So I have to catch up at the end. So you're going to ask your friends or someone, "What was the score?" They will say the same answer except they'll say, "It was -- for example -- 2-1 for Mexico." Okay? Or you could ask the person, "Who won?" They're going to say the country. "Cameroon won 2-0." Okay? Again, we don't have to say this little hyphen thing. Whatever country is the winner -- can someone give me another country name? What's your country name? Is your country in the World Cup? Canada isn't, and I know why. Because in Canada, we don't even know the name of the game. USA was in the World Cup. They got shut out. So, "USA won 2-0." Whatever country's the winner, you have to use the past tense. This is present tense: "win". Past tense is like the number -- exact same way to say it. We say "won". I know the spelling looks strange, but it's actually the same way to say it. What happens in the World Cup -- in the World Cup only -- is they have different groups: A, B, C, D. And when the teams play each other, groups get disqualified. So what happens is in each group, one country will advance. So for example, I can say, "In group A, USA advances." But they didn't, did they? History has been written. If you are with a group of people and they're not wearing any team colors, you can say, "Who are you supporting?" Or, "Who are you going for?" This means, "Who are you cheering for? Who, like -- oh, come on! Go! Oh, I didn't get it." Do you get really excited when you watch your team play? I don't. I don't have a team. Canada doesn't even know how to say the sport correctly. One thing that happens in the World Cup is there are many, many games in one day. Up to three games a day. So you can ask someone, "Who plays today? Who plays tomorrow?" I'm going to come back after I go have half-time and teach you some vocabulary.

Hopefully I got most of them right but I may have made mistakes and I can do some better than others. However, I made this video for my friends because I promised them I would do an accent video. I mean no offence to anyone and please don't be upset if I have not included your specific accent or got it wrong. Please enable and read the annotations too, as they explain a few things. Also please note that I learned most of these accents randomly off of TV, movies and video games over the years and some can be very stereotypical. And yes, I am filming in the garden shed as its more quiet in there lol.

Can you learn a language just by listening?
Imagine if you could learn a language without doing any studying. What if instead of studying grammar, reading in the foreign language, learning vocabulary, and doing speaking practice, all you had to do was listen to what was happening around you and watch movies? Wouldn't it be great if you could naturally absorb the language and start speaking yourself? This is a popular language learning method across the world, but in this video I answer the question of whether learning a language this way will actually work for you. For example, many people try to learn English through listening using the following methods: - Watching TV in a English with the subtitles on in your native language - Listening to talk radio in English in the background while doing something else - Being around foreign friends when you yourself do not speak the language Babies learn to speak their first words by listening, but will it work for you? Check out this video to hear my opinion on learning a language through listening. I've tried it, and I'll share my personal experiences with you! http://www.engvid.com/can-you-learn-a-language-just-by-listening/ TRANSCRIPT Hey, guys. Welcome to engVid. Today's lesson is a little bit different, it's me talking about: Is it possible for you to learn a language just by listening? This is something that I think many of us would love, love, love, love to be true. I can just learn a language by listening, I don't have to really do anything if I just spend enough time listening, then, you know, I'll be able to speak; I'll have learned the language. So, some ways we might do this are... Could be watching... Watching TV in that language you're trying to learn and just think: "Well, I'm... I'm learning. I'm learning stuff just by watching." Another way is you move to a different country, and you spend time around native speaker friends, and you don't understand anything, but you're like: "Well, I'm learning. The more time I spend doing this, I'll get to a point where I can just speak the language." And that is a situation that I, myself, have been in many times in my life. If you put all the time together, I would say I probably wasted a couple of years of my life, taking that approach, just thinking you learn by listening. Now, don't get me wrong, you do learn how to understand what people are talking about if you take that approach. You know, you're the only one who doesn't speak the same language that everybody else speaks, you're the only one who doesn't speak it, after a while you do kind of understand what people are talking about, so you can often guess from the situation. But that doesn't mean the same thing as being able to put a sentence together, and join in in the conversation in that language. Because although you kind of understand what people are saying, you just haven't developed the skill of moving your tongue and saying the words of the other language. So I would say taking that approach is a very, very frustrating, and slow, and ineffective way to learn any language. And that's based from my personal experience. If the language that you're hoping, trying, wishing to learn is very close to your language, then of course, you will understand much, much more of what is being said, and you'll be able to guess many of the words. But if the language is completely different to your native language, it's a really ineffective way to expect to learn a language, because there's just not a lot you can guess. The words are very different, the grammar structure is very different. And have you ever been in that situation when you're the only one who doesn't understand anything? Well, I've been in that situation many times, and I don't know if this happens to all people, but this happens to me. After a while, you stop listening. And, at least I do, and I start thinking about my own things in my head. So you're there, but you're not even listening. And you have to ask yourself: Is this the same thing that's also happening if you're watching a movie that's spoken in a language that you don't understand? Are you actually listening to the words, or are you just reading subtitles in your own language that you understand? So that's an important part of it as well. Is that time you are listening to the language you want to learn, are you using that time with your ears, really awake and switched on to what people are saying? Because I think most of the time, when you don't actually know that language, you're not fully listening because you don't understand anything. You're really concentrating on something you don't understand, it's a very hard thing to do for more than a couple of minutes.

Visit the Country to Learn the Language?
Hi there. I am back. Steve Kaufmann here I am back from my 20 day visit to Myanmar, Vietnam and Korea and I want to talk about visiting the country and learning the language. You often hear that in order to learn a language you have to visit the country and some people suggest that you get a phrase book before going there and then when you get there you will be able to use these phrases. So I will talk about my experiences in three countries. Before going to Asia I did buy a Vietnamese phrase book with some MP3 files, some audio or CDs, which I listened to. I do not know how much time I put in, a couple of hours, but I went to Myanmar first. Before. I didn’t do anything before, but when I went there I did buy a little phrase book: Burmese. OK – my experience is as follows: In Burma for six days, seven days I must have asked people 20 times, how do you say ‘Hello’, how do you say ‘Goodbye’, how do you say ‘Thank you’, and maybe ‘Please’. I mean those are really the only words that you have a chance of saying if you are there for six days. I came out of there being able to say maybe two things that I can remember. (Min-ga-la-ba) which is hello or good day or whatever and (cè-zù tin-ba-deh) which means thank you and (ta-ta) is goodbye and I had to ask literally over and over again, but I kept on forgetting. The only one that sticks after a while is (Min-ga-la-ba) because people say it to you all the time because they are so friendly and I had to have a little thing in my mind all the time, like (Min-bai-la) like Chinese to try and remember (Min-ga-la-ba). The point is; it’s very difficult to pick up phrases and looking in this phrase book, I mean it was hopeless to me. I mean how do you say, ‘Where is the...?’ Not a chance unless the language is pretty close to a language that you already speak. So stimulating to be there, but in terms of actually trying to say something – and even If I were to say something so well, like ‘Hello’ and they started to speak to me in their local language, I would be lost. So looking at a few phrases before you go there, like in the case of Myanmar, is useless. Vietnam, despite the fact that I studied, not studied, but did listen and tried to get something, again I ended up with four or five words (sin-chow) which is hello, (kom-an) which means thank you, (tam-pia) which means goodbye, (shin-loi) which means excuse me, and I think that’s about it, but after seven days, lots of effort I even bought a dictionary so that I could perhaps look up the words that I wanted to say – useless. I even also went to buy this book to see how the Chinese characters are pronounced in Vietnamese, I found that there aren’t nearly as many of those words in Vietnamese as there are in Korean or in Japanese so the Chinese characters aren’t that big of a help. So all I am saying is, going there with a phrase book, hoping it will help you learn any kind of meaningful communication is a hopeless dream. All you can do is, not communication, it is about saying something in their language, which it’s like showing off and very often they appreciate it, so if you say ‘come on’ and ‘thank you’ in Vietnamese, people appreciate it more than if you just said ‘thank you’ (in English) sometimes. So it is not a major way of learning the language. Korean – of course I have spent a lot of time on Korean – I find Korean difficult, despite all the time I have spent on Korean. When I first arrived in Korea, actually it was difficult to swing into action right away. To try to use the language. I went to the subway and couldn’t quite figure out how to use their vending machine and I asked one of the employees of the metro system and he could not really understand what I was saying and I could not really understand what he was saying. Communication ZERO. However, within two or three days of being there of using it a little more here and a little more there all of my passive learning got activated quite quickly and in our meet-up night where we had both Koreans and foreigners who spoke Korean, I was able to speak quite a bit of Korean and then subsequently when I had to talk to taxi drivers and in other situations where I was dealing with people who could not speak English, it was surprising how after a day or two or three, the passive learning gets activated. So I sort of want to restate my conviction that if you want to go and benefit from visiting the country, make sure that you put in enough time. We are talking six months, a significant investment in the language and even then when you get there it will be a day or two or three before you can activate it but then it’s not just that you use it and hear it more but there is something about being in an environment where that is the language of communication, so that it is no longer just an academic exercise. That sort of atmospheric environment has the effect of activating your language...
Studying English at a Language School
Join me as I go to a top language school in London and see what it's like to study English there. I'll show you classes, and talk to students from around the world about their experience. Whether you want to study for the IELTS, prepare for university in an English-speaking country, or just improve your English for personal reasons, studying at a language school is a big decision. See what it's like and decide if it's right for you! Thanks to The London School of English: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheLondonSchool?sub_confirmation=1 http://www.engvid.com/ Hello, folks. So this morning, we've come along to a very good language school in London because we want to have a look at what it's like to be a student in one of these schools. Come, and let's find out. -- Hi, Lee. -- Hi, Ben. -- So our viewers are learning English on the Internet. What would be an advantage of coming to a language school for a time to learn some English? -- I think the key difference is that when you're at a language school, then you are part of a whole experience. If you're learning online, it's great, but it's for an hour or two, and that's it. Whereas if you come to the school, then you have complete immersion in a whole day of English if you like. If you're staying with a host family, you have English experience before you come to school. All day, you're speaking English, and if you take part in our social activities in the evening, then you're carrying on. So it's constantly learning and taking in and processing of new information. -- Sure. So if someone was studying here and staying with a host family, they might share meals with the family. -- Yeah. -- And I guess there are students coming from many different countries. -- Exactly. And of course, then you get this interaction with loads and loads of different students from all over the world, which, again, really challenges you in different ways when you're learning English, I think. -- And do students come here for a couple of weeks? -- Some do. Some students come for a couple of weeks. Some students come for a year. It depends on what that student is looking for, what they need, what their plans are. So it can be either-or. -- And I guess it's very exciting being here in London. You know, we've got a lot of English culture around us. -- Of course. I mean, the history, the art, the literature, the theatre scene is just really advantageous to learning English. It's just an amazing city. So to come and study here is a really good thing, I think. -- Yeah. I mean, I guess the student can learn more the more they put themselves in an English environment, the more they speak. -- Exactly. If you immerse yourself in something completely, then you're going to get more out of it, I think. -- Cool. Well, is it possible to go and have a look at a class this morning? -- Yeah. Absolutely. I think Dan is waiting for you upstairs. -- Great. Thank you very much. -- You're welcome. Let's go upstairs. So let's go and have a quick look now at a general English class and what that looks like in a language school. Okay. Come have a look. -- Hi, there, Dan. -- Hi. -- Hi. We've just come to have a look at your general English class today. -- Hello. -- What exactly are you going to be doing in class today? -- Today, we're looking at the difference between literal and non-literal meanings of nine elements of vocabulary. I was just asking Nir what he thought about the difference between "enough food" and "too much food". So, sorry. -- I think it depends. -- Okay. In this meaning, do you think that it's -- if there is "lots of", is it good or bad? -- Yeah. It's good. -- Good? Would you agree, guys? It's good? -- I think it's bad. -- Okay. Hands up if you think it's good. Nir, you stand alone, my friend. I'm sorry. Hands up if you think it's bad. -- In fact, that's what I looked like last night at about 10:30. But what other words? Fly. That's what I'm looking for, "fly". Read the sentences with your partner. I want you to decide two things. No. 1, which sentence is the literal meaning? Which sentence is the non-literal meaning. No. 2, what do you think the non-literal meaning means in other languages? Okay. Good. So it's a word. You can use it, but it doesn't mean what you think it means here. In this case, you mean "hard", not "hardly".

Learn Vocabulary: English words that come from other languages
Did you know that a lot of words in the English language actually come from other languages? When you say "hamburger", "mentor", "saxophone", or "spartan", you are using words that originated in countries such as Belgium, Germany, and Greece. Learn some new vocabulary and, along with that, a bit of history by watching this interesting lesson on foreign words. You will realize that English borrows much more from other languages than you thought. Do you know of any English words that are from your language? Be sure to share them in the comments section! http://www.engvid.com/learn-vocabulary-english-words-from-other-languages/ TRANSCRIPT Dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun. Hi. James from engVid. We always do very serious lessons. Well, kind of serious lessons, in my case, but usually, you know, we stick with the grammar, the idioms, vocabulary, and whatnot, and every once in a while, it's just kind of fun to find out where words are. There's nothing wrong with learning for learning sake. In fact, when you learn that way and you're having fun, you're probably going to want to learn more. Okay? Even myself, I've taught English for at least 10 years. Probably longer; gosh knows. Every once in a while I'm fascinated when I learn the history of something that I didn't know existed or, you know, why we use this instead of that, or there used to be something else. It's fascinating. So today, we're going to have a bit of a fun lesson where you're going to learn about English words. You're still going to learn how to use them, but we're going to look at words that actually come from you, the viewing audience. You guys always watch us. Now we're going to return the favour and tell you about words that come from your countries, your languages that we brought. Okay? So these are words from around the world, brought to you by Mr. E. And you can see our globe is here. And we're going to take a first look at our visual words, and then we're going to do a few others and give you some definitions. You ready? Let's do the first one. What could be more American in the world than the hamburger? There's McDonald's hamburgers, Big Boy burgers, just burgers. Right? The hamburger and the hot dog are American as apple pie. But what if I told you the hamburger is not American? Right now there are about a million Americans having heart attacks, like: "Don't take that away from us. That's American like apple pie." Like an American German apple pie? [Laughs] You'll see, in the country Germany there is a place called Hamburg, and the hamburger wasn't served on a bun. That, I have to give to the Americans, they put it on a bun. Because you know they're lazy... I didn't say that, guys, but they don't want to use knife and fork, so they use a bun. In Hamburg, they had the patty, the beef patty, and they would eat it that way. It took an American to put some bread underneath and bread on top, and have that patty that way. But it... Hamburger was originally from Hamburg and it was just a meat patty. Didn't know that, did you? That's right, Americans, I've got more. [Laughs] What's next? Popular instrument. If you love jazz [makes music noise] that's not even a saxophone; I don't know how to play. Go watch The Simpsons and watch Lisa Simpson, she plays the saxophone. I had a teacher named David Mott, great guy, he also played the sax. Professional jazz player. Sexy instrument. Now, the saxophone, it sounds very French, no? The French people right now are going: "Of course, it's magnifique. It's ours. It is a phone. It is a sax." I've got news for you: bloody Germans... Well, not Germans. This guy's... This time the guy's from Belgium. His name was Adolphe Sax. Okay? "Adolphe" is spelt "ph", so you've got your "ph" here. "Saxophone", it was his musical scene. He's from Belgium. Belgium? Except from The Muscles from Brussels, Jean-Claude Van Damme, nothing comes from Belgium. And chocolates. But they also made the saxophone. Cool? There you go.
Secret to hack a country and learn language for free | Claudio Santori & Muezz Vestin | TEDxVilnius
Can learning a foreign language hack a country? Apparently it does. Both Claudio (Italian) and Muezz (Swedish) are living in Lithuania. They, like everyone else, struggled to learn local language: people kept talking to them in English, they spoke in English back and it went over like a vicious circle over and over again. Until one day when they did something else that turned them from foreigners into local Lithuanians -- they hacked a country. In their 10min talk they explain exactly how they did it and what you can do if you want to do the same. Claudio: Growing up in a time where there was no Internet, Claudio had a lot of time to explore naturally given things, but as soon as he got his first Internet connection at the age of 18 everything changed. Internet opened doors to a complete new world: from Serra San Quirico, a small town in Central Italy, to Rome where he got a bachelor in Economics. Not long after he became a manager of the famous Italian singer Lorenzo Jovanotti Cherubini and also became a curator of no.1 Italian blogger Selvaggia Lucarelli. Muezz: Problem solver. Life learner. Life explorer. That is just a few descriptions about Muezz. Putting himself outside his own comfort zone is his greatest strength. But he was not born with this mindset. Muezz grew up in one of the most culturally diversified suburbs in Sweden. Over there he learned about different cultures and being a part of boy scouts at 8 years taught him to be “always ready”.

Learn English without moving to an English-speaking country. Be sure to get your free book here: https://www.tofluency.com/5-step-plan/ Quick tips: - Listen as much as you can: https://www.tofluency.com/improve-english-listening/ - Change your environment to all English - Practice your speaking online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbLFUMQZ-do - Use these two methods to improve your speaking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGQ0DMpWHUk //////// TRANSCRIPT //////// Max is here. Okay... Thanks for your help. I'm loving your speech and instructions. Is it really possible to improve my English if I don't live in a country where people speak English as their native language? I'm from Brazil. Thanks a lot. Great to have you here,max. This is a question I get a lot, and you know, a lot of you want to know this. Is it possible to learn English in Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, you know, Azerbaijan - in countries where it's not the native language? And yes. You can reach a high level of English no matter where you live. The internet has changed that. Completely. Think about 15-20 years ago: to be able to listen to English conversation in Brazil, you had to buy those CDs from a language school or a book store that were really expensive. Or you had to buy the cassettes (before the CDs). But now, you can have free conversations on a variety of different topics - an unlimited amount of audio playing in your ear all the time. As much as you want to have it. And that's what you need, you know, as an English learner you need lots and lots of input. You're able to practice your English, you're able to watch TV in English, you're able to have conversations online, you're able to take these lessons, you're able to sign up for courses online. Obviously, if you live in foreign country, you'll have more spontaneous conversations - and it is easier to get the input; to listen to conversational English. But you can set up your own world of English no matter where you're from. And you just have to do the best you can with what you have. So, if you live in Brazil, then you can - as I said before - you can listen to things online, listen to podcasts, listen to radio shows, watch TV, have conversations with people online - and in you live in a very busy area with English speakers, you can make English-speaking friends no matter where you are as well. So, it's definitely possible. And yeah - it's just about you making the most of the resources on offer. ---------- Please share this video if you found it useful. Thanks.

8 Cultural Differences between Native Speakers and English Learners
Culture has a big role to play in the way we speak. It dictates not only which language we use, but also the way we express ourselves with different people. For example, how direct and honest people are generally varies by region. Because of these differences, it is just as important to master culture as it is language. This lesson will help you understand how native speakers think. You will learn how to improve your communication skills depending on whom you are speaking with no matter where you go in the world! Take the quiz on this lesson at http://www.engvid.com/8-cultural-differences-between-native-speakers-and-english-learners/ TRANSCRIPT Hmm. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. Hi. James from engVid. I've often said that learning language, a foreign language is great. In this case, you're learning English, so congratulations. But a lot of students, they learn the language, and they kind of forget about the culture, like it doesn't really matter. Being an English speaker, I was born in England, and the culture from England is very different from the culture from Canada, even though they are closely related. So if you can imagine the cultural difference between someone from, say, China and Canada, that would be fantastically different. Well, as they say, as much as we're different, we're the same. But in this case, I want to do a lesson on eight differences in culture that if you're learning the language, which would be important. Now, what I've done is shown the difference between the East and the West, because frankly, you may be from the Middle East or Asia, and you want to do business with Canadians or Americans or British people, and you should see what we think are important. And as well, this helps out English-speaking people about how we should communicate with you when we're trying to teach you English. You like that? Let's go to the board. We have Mr. E, here. He wants to eat his... Let's see. What should he eat? I'm going to suggest that he has a pizza, because that's easy to draw, and anybody who knows me knows I'm a terrible drawer. There you go. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. He's having a piz-... Pepperoni pizza. What would you suggest he eat with? A knife or a fork, or chopsticks? Well, it seems obvious: Use your hands. See, when you understand, you can manipulate or use things to your advantage. Let's go to the board. We'll start out with the West, which is where we are. All right? In the West, we say "respect is earned". That means I cannot give you respect or look up to you until you have done something to show me that you deserve my respect or I should give it to you. Just because you say: "Hello, my name is" doesn't mean anything. You have to say: "Hello, my name is, and I have done these things." Because of that and if you do something that helps me, I will give you my respect. Okay? In the East, it's a little different. In the East, what we say is: "respect is due to hierarchy". Hierarchy? Well, just like the word says, think "high", okay? The higher you are-okay?-the higher position you have. So if I come in and say: "I am Generalissimo Kareer." You go: "Oh, I must give you great respect", in the East, just because I am the General. I don't have to be a good General; I just have to be a General. You must give me respect. Well, in the West, you'd have to be a good General that's done a lot of good things. Okay, number two: open debate is encouraged. If you're going: "What is open debate?" Open debate is conversation, but it's more conversation where two ideas are conflicting or they don't go together. You think A, they think B. So you don't both agree necessarily. Maybe you think: "I don't agree with this person, or I don't like everything they say", so you have a debate, which is a conversation to try and change each other's mind. Okay? Open debate in the West is encouraged. If you don't like my idea, I'll say: "Why? What's wrong with it? Why don't you come up with something? Tell me what you think, or tell me what's wrong with my ideas." The challenge, we think, brings a greater result. In other words, if you talk to me and we have a really good open debate, things should be better at the end of the debate. Let's look at the East. In the East, open debate and confrontation is avoided. Partly, this is because in the East... Remember we talked about hierarchy? There's a level or layers? Well, if you question someone and they are on a higher level, you are not showing them the respect they deserve, so it is almost better to do your debate... Or, not even debate, but questions in a less public area. So it is not open debate; more of a private thing with you and that person, and even then, you shouldn't really question them, but ask questions of them. Okay? That's number two. Number three, let's look at individual success and material success. In the West, they matter, it's important. Yes, who I am is important, but it's who I am, just myself. Have I done well in school? Have I made a lot of money?
Why Are the Dutch so Good at English?
Why Are the Dutch so Good at English? MEF First chapter Free: http://doingenglish.com/first-chapter-free Amsterdam is a fascinating city. Not least because of language. I’ve never met anyone Dutch who doesn’t speak impeccable English. This is, of course, one of the reasons why Amsterdam is on the rise as one of the key business-centres in Europe following Brexit and the beginning of London’s demise. Holland came first on the EF English Proficiency Index (compared with 72 other countries - incidentally Denmark is 2, Sweden 3 - go figure) and around 93% of the population speak at least conversational English The question is though, why? Well… For a start, it definitely helps that Dutch and English are relatively similar - they both come from the same Germanic background. Another reason is the fact that TV and films aren’t dubbed into Dutch (unlike other European countries such as Spain, Germany or France). They have subtitles. But that’s it. And while that’s fine for adults, kids are lazy and don’t bother reading them and get good at understanding English in English pretty quickly. All this is well and good… But it’s not enough. You want to know what I think the main reason the Dutch speak such great English is? Attitude. Holland has always been somewhat of a business and international trade center. Speaking English for business is a given. There’s no worrying about not being good enough at English, saying, “I’m not ready to speak English”. No. People just DO it. **** More English Learning Stuff From Julian Northbrook **** Get my book, Master English FAST - an uncommon guide to speaking extraordinary English here: http://MasterEnglishFAST.com For weekly business English Lessons, go here: http://doingenglish.com/membership To learn more about Julian and Doing English, go here: http://doingenglish.com/about **** English Lessons on YouTube **** Learn English with the Sunday's with Julian Series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qz1BwIjn9l48gJN2WvFtbNH Julian in Canada: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qz5ojw7f4uqOtzIZNR7hFIm Language Science https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qxz4cbqxY8-EbPYLGIiJ26R Fluency and Thinking in English https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qxKl700NNqxb7280mxzeYgF English Learner Psychology https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qzTcuZeGMJ_IeJUdwVgNISD Books by Julian Northbrook https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qyT1ESNj274qkQlxwz43346 British Stories https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qx0LBEfozyH6lwWxfrO8QMw English for Business and Entrepreneurship https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qyg5OrXiv1Qodx5JYfufB_w Julian Northbrook's Extraordinary English Speakers (EES) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qysM1tcGDC-m_DheSlBwtq5 Language and Linguistics https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qyVfHTlcny_UpfyEnCzFS19 Interviews with Julian https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnkyfPgXC2qzC-LPYEgi-olE5L6OZd55c English speaking practice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVWFGIyNswI **** ABOUT DOING ENGLISH AND JULIAN NORTHBROOK **** I teach the English language.

Discover the History of English
Did you know that the English word "human" has a Latin origin? And did you know that the word "people" actually comes from French? Today, hundreds of millions of people speak English either as their first or second language. But hundreds of years ago, the English language that we know today did not exist. It has been evolving through the centuries and continues to do so now. In this lesson, I will teach you the history of invasions, migrations, and other influences that have helped to shape English as we know it. You will also discover English words that have origins in Latin, French, and other languages. Don't miss this fascinating lesson! http://www.engvid.com/discover-the-history-of-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. I'm Gill from engVid, and today... As you know, I usually teach an aspect of the English language, but today, we're going to be looking at the English language from a different perspective, a different angle, and looking at the history of the language and how it has developed, because the English language hasn't always been the way it is today. It's developed over hundreds and hundreds of years. Now, today, hundreds of millions of people speak English all over the world, whether it's their first language or their second language, or just one of the foreign languages that they speak and learn at school, and so on. So, hundreds of millions of people speak English and learn English. But hundreds of years ago, the English language that we know today didn't really exist. It sort of got put together gradually by different historical events. So we're going to go back in history now, and have a look at a timeline. I don't know if you've seen a timeline before, but it is literally the time, the years going from left to right, like you get on a graph if you've done graphs, and the time goes across along the line. So the different developments that happened can be shown on that line. So we're starting here in 55 BC, hundreds of years ago, and we're coming up to... Well, beyond. We have 1066, here, but because I ran out of space on the board, the time went on for such a long time, I couldn't get all the centuries in, but I will still tell you about them. Okay. But these are the very interesting parts, which are on the board. So, 55 BC, the Roman invasion of Britain, of the U.K., where we are at the moment. So, you've heard of the Roman Empire with Julius Caesar and all the other Caesars, the Roman Empire that spread in different directions, and Britain is one of the directions they spread in. They came here, and stayed for a while, and built some nice buildings, and they built a wall that goes across between Scotland and England, called Hadrian's Wall, because the Emperor at the time was called Hadrian. So, anyway, when they came and stayed for some time, they brought their language with them, the Latin language. Okay? And the Latin language, it's called a dead language today, but it has influenced so many other languages, especially in Southern Europe, so languages like Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, they all come from Latin. So, in this country, in the English language, we have had the Latin influence at different times. So, the Romans brought their Latin language with them. Okay? So that influenced the way people were speaking to each other as time went on. And the natives of this country started learning Latin words, and it became integrated into the language. Okay, so let's have a look at some of the words that we use today that were influenced or that came from Latin words. Right? And we have this pie chart, here, which you may know if you've been studying things for IELTS and the writing task. A pie chart... So, the whole circle represents 100%. So if you're thinking of all the words in the English language at the moment, Latin, the Latin words that came from... Partly from the Roman invasion, we have 29% of the words in the English language have come from a Latin origin, from a source, Latin source. Okay. So here are just a few of very words that we use every day, really. Words like: "human", "animal", "dental" to do with the teeth, "decimal" which is to do with the fingers because we have 10 fingers, "decimal", and "digital", also fingers, "factory" where things are made, manufacture, "library" where you read books, "libre" meaning book, "library", the building where the books are kept, "manual" to do with if you do things with your hand it comes from the Latin word for "hand", "manual". "Lunar" to do with the moon, because the Latin word for the moon was "luna", "luna". And "solar" to do with the sun, again, because the Latin word was like that, "solar". "Military", anything to do with soldiers because the Latin Roman Empire soldiers were... That was the word that was used for "soldiers". "Melees" I think. And we also get our "mile", the distance, the mile from that, because that was the distance that they would march, I think, before they had a rest or something like that.

Learn English - Travel Vocabulary
http://www.engvid.com/ Learn important, basic words you will need when you travel. Knowing a little English vocabulary can help a lot when you are travelling. Whever you are going in the world, you can almost always find someone who speaks some English. I'll teach you how a "tourist attraction" is different from a "tourist trap". What about "sight seeing"? Do you know what an "itinerary" is? Do you have your travel documents? Get ready for your English to take flight! http://www.engvid.com/travel-vocabulary/ Hi. James, from EngVid. I was just about to plan my vacation. I'm going to take a long flight to Europe. I'm trying to remember luggage and baggage things, you know? It's kind of hard to do. But this is a lesson for you if you've been working a lot, you need some time off. Now, there's a video I would like you to go check out. That's on time off. It goes with this one. You might want to go away somewhere and not just stay home, right? So this video is for you. This is basic vocabulary on vacation. When you leave and maybe you go to an English speaking country and you want to practice your English, this stuff will be good for you to enjoy your time there, also to make it easy for you when you arrive. Are you ready? Let's go to the board. Mr. E, Mr. E! It's a mystery where he is. It's no mystery. And you thought I forgot. Mr. E has been on vacation with me, and he's enjoying this particular attraction. So let's go to the board. Now, if you're going to go on vacation, one of the first things you will have to do if you're leaving your country is you're going to need some travel documents. What are those? Documents. A "document" is a paper or something with information that tells you something is okay or outlines it for you. For example, your passport is a document given by the government with your picture on it that says you are a citizen of this country, and you are legal. You are a good person. Okay? Now, when you're leaving for a flight, or you want to go to another country, you're going to need travel documents first. Trust me; show up at the airport and go, "I leave now. I go to Canada." They will go, "And the car is that way. Go home, crazy man. Okay?" So we need travel documents. So what are "travel documents"? Well, "travel documents" would be your passport, government identification, usually needed at most places the travel. Inside of a country, not necessary for most places. But leaving the country, you have to have it. Okay? So if you're in the European Union, no problem. If you're in Canada and the United States, you don't need one. But as soon as you leave these countries, you need a passport. What's another thing you need? Well, you need what's called a "boarding pass". If you play soccer, you kick the ball; the other guy, he catches it; you "pass" right? The ball goes from one player to another. A "boarding pass" is what allows you to go from one country to another country. You show the person on the airplane this piece of paper with your passport, and they say, "You know what? You can come on the plane and fly, like the pass." Kick, catch, other country. Cool? All right. So these are your travel documents. You need those. Now, I should have started with you need to make a plan because you want to go visit some place. You want to go on vacation, right? And if you want to go on vacation, well, going to have to -- I said "vacation". A "vacation" is a holiday, another word for saying "time off from work". All right? So you want to go on vacation. Sometimes, we say, "We're going to vacation in Italy." Or "on my vacation, I want to visit Italy." Or "I'm taking a holiday in Italy." Okay? So all these words, when people say, "Well, what are you doing on your time off?" You might go, "I'm going on vacation." Then they know you're leaving. If you just say, "I'm taking time off from work", you could be home cleaning. But no. You're saying, "I'm going on vacation." They're going to go, "Where are you going to visit? Italy, perhaps? Sicily? Is it going to be a good holiday?" And you go, "Yes. I earned my time." "Earned" means to work for something. "I earned my time off. I'm going on vacation."

One Simple Method to Learn Any Language | Scott Young & Vat Jaiswal | TEDxEastsidePrep
While few of us will ever take on the ambitious challenge of learning four foreign languages in a year, many of us yearn to be more proficient in another language. The secret to success as it turns out is simpler than you think. Scott Young is a blogger, speaker and author. He previously spoke at TEDx EastsidePrep about his project “The MIT Challenge” to self-test MIT’s undergraduate computer science curriculum in one year, using their freely available information. His most recent project was with Vat Jaiswal, traveling to four countries, learning languages, with the goal of not speaking English for an entire year. He writes about learning and self-education at his website, ScottHYoung.com. Vat Jaiswal is a graduate student, aspiring architect and filmmaker. His most recent project was with Scott Young on The Year Without English, where he traveled through Spain, Brazil, China, Taiwan and Korea creating four short documentaries on language learning and cultural immersion. He shares his work, including experimental time-lapse photography and an interview series with successful architects, at vatjaiswal.com This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Learn British accents and dialects – Cockney, RP, Northern, and more!
Did you know that there are over 30 different English accents in England alone? And that's not all. Would you believe there are over a hundred different English dialects accross the world? In this lesson, I will tell you about some common British accents you might hear. You'll hear examples of Cockney, RP, Estuary, Northern, Scottish, Welsh, and many more accents. Don't miss this opportunity to add some spice to your English pronunciation and comprehension! Take the quiz at http://www.engvid.com/learn-british-accents-and-dialects-cockney-rp-northern-and-more/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Gill at www.engvid.com, and today's lesson is about accents in the U.K. So, U.K. accents and also dialects. Okay, so what's the difference between an accent and a dialect? Right. Well, an accent, as you know, is to do with pronunciation, how you pronounce the word. Dialect is when you have a word that only people in a certain area of the country use; it's not a national word, it's a local word that maybe people from other parts of the country, they won't even know what it means, so that's dialect. Okay. So, let's just have a look through some of the accents that we have in the U.K. The one that you're probably learning as you're learning to pronounce English words is RP. "RP" stands for "Received Pronunciation". It's a slightly strange term. "Received" where do you receive it from? Well, maybe you receive it from your teacher. This is how to say this word. It's a slightly strange expression, but RP, it's usually referred to by the initials. And it's the kind of accent you will hear if you're watching BBC Television programs or listening to BBC Radio. Not everybody on the BBC speaks with an RP accent. The news readers tend to be RP speakers, but not always. But the strange thing is that in this country, only a very small percentage of people do speak with this accent. Apparently, just 3%, but they tend to be people in positions of power, authority, responsibility. They probably earn a lot of money. They live in big houses. You know the idea. So, people like the Prime Minster, at the moment David Cameron, he went to a private school, he went to university, Oxford, so people who have been to Oxford and Cambridge Universities often speak in RP, even if they didn't speak in RP before they went to Oxford or Cambridge, they often change their accent while they are there because of the big influence of their surroundings and the people that they're meeting. So that's RP. It's a very clear accent. So, it's probably a good idea to either learn to speak English with an RP accent, or you may be learning with an American accent, a Canadian accent, all of those accents are very clear. Okay. And being clear is the most important thing. Okay, so moving on. RP, as I should have said, is mostly in the south of the country; London and the south. So, also "Cockney" and "Estuary English" are in the south. Okay. So, Cockney is the local London accent, and it tends to spread further out to places like Kent, Essex, other places like that. Surrey. There's a newer version of Cockney called "Estuary English". If you think an estuary is connected to a river, so the River Thames which flows across the country, goes quite a long way west. So anyone living along the estuary, near the river can possibly have this accent as well. So, just to give you some examples, then, of the Cockney accent, there are different features. So, one example is the "th" sound, as you know to make a "th" sound, some of you may find it difficult anyway, "the", when you put your tongue through your teeth, "the", but a Cockney person may not use the "the", they will use an "f" sound or a "v" sound instead, so the word "think", "I think", they would say would say instead of: "think", they would say it like that: "fink", "fink", and the top teeth are on the bottom lip, "think". And words like "with" that end with the "th", instead of "with", it will be "wiv", "wiv", "wiv". "Are you coming wiv me?" So that is one of the things that happens with the Cockney accent. Words like "together" would be "togever". Okay? The number "three", t-h-r-e-e is often pronounced "free": "We have free people coming to dinner. Free people." So, there can be confusion there, because we have the word "free", which has a meaning in itself, "free", but if you actually mean "three", the number three, there can be some confusion. So don't get confused by "free people". -"Oh, they're free? They're free to come?" -"No, there are three of them. Three people who are free to come." Ah, okay.
Real English for staying at a HOTEL
Want to stay at a hotel in an English-speaking country? Even if it's another country, you may have to speak English at a hotel, because it's the international language of travel. In this video, I'll teach you everything you need to know. You'll learn about the services that hotels here offer, and how to make the most of your stay. I'll teach you sentences you can use to ask for anything you want at a hotel. I'll also teach you the titles of the people that you'll be speaking with. Find out what free services your hotel offers, so you can get value for your money, and also know which services you have to pay for, so you don't spend more than you want to. Learn all the vocabulary and expressions you need here, so you don't need to worry about your English next time you're on vacation or a business trip. All in all, I designed this video to make sure your next stay in a hotel will be an enjoyable one. TAKE THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/english-for-staying-at-a-hotel/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome to engVid. I'm Adam. In today's video I'm going to walk you through your stay at a hotel in an English-speaking country. You need to know some vocabulary, you need to know some of the staff you're going to be dealing with, some of the services and amenities, and all of that stuff. So it's a lot of vocabulary, but a lot of things that you probably need to know before you get to the hotel. So, the first thing we're going to look at is the staff. Who works at a hotel? So, first of all, in some of the more fancy hotels, the more up... High-scale hotels, you're going to have a "doorman". He or she, mostly he, will open and close the door for you, that's why: doorman. Very... Now, I know you're not supposed to say "man", you're supposed to say "doorperson", but in hotels I don't think anybody really cares; we still say "doorman" because mostly it's a man working there. Now, if you drove there, there might be a "valet". A "valet" is a person who will take your car and park it for you. You give him or her the keys, they drive away, park your car. When you're ready to leave, they bring your car to the front of the hotel, you get in, drive off. There's also the "housekeeping" or the "maid". You can call it either one. "Housekeeping" is the same thing as "maid". These days "housekeeping" is a little bit more common than "maid", but they clean your room, bring you fresh towels, etc. The "porter". The porter will probably be standing outside in front of the hotel. When you pull up in your taxi or your car, he will come, take your bags inside to the front desk. And this person is also like a little bit of a man Friday we call it. He will run around and get things done for you if you need. If you need tickets, he'll go pick them up. If you need some chores run, he'll take your coat to the laundry, all these things. So basically he's a person who runs around doing tasks for the guests. Okay? A "bellhop" will take your luggage from the reception to your room. So you don't have to carry your own bags; that's what the bellhop does. Takes your bags, when you're ready to leave he will come to your room, take your bags downstairs for you. The "concierge". So, the concierge is the person who works in a hotel, and this is the person you go to if you need to arrange outings outside the hotel. If you want a restaurant reservation, if you want tickets to the theatre, sports games, anything you want to do outside the hotel, this person will probably help you organize these things, like tours, he or she or the area will have brochures and information about all the sites in the area, all the tourist attractions, etc. So, "concierge". The "g" sounds like the "s" in "measure". Okay? It's a bit of a French sound. Basically it's customer service. And again, in high-scale hotels, they do a bit more services for you, but most hotels have a concierge. Now, when you walk into the hotel you will go to the "front desk" or you will go to the "reception" or you will go to the "check-in desk", all the same thing. All of them are located in the lobby of the hotel. So the entrance, the main area of the front of the hotel, you just go to the front desk, you check in. You go to the check-in desk, you go to the reception, all the same thing. Now, if you're in your room and you don't want the maid to come and clean up, don't forget to put that "Do Not Disturb" tag on your door. Okay? We call this a tag. It's a piece of paper, you put it outside your door, housekeeping will not disturb you. They will not knock on your door. Now, basically hotel has "rooms" and "suites". What is the difference? Name only. Most hotels like to call their rooms suites, but if you want to get a little bit more technical, a suite should be bigger. Many suites have a kitchenette. A kitchenette is like a half kitchen. It's not a full-size kitchen, it's not fully equipped. Probably no big stove or dishwasher, things like that, but enough that you can make small meals, snacks, etc.

Steps to Learning English: Where should you start?
So you want to learn or improve your English. But where should you start? When you learn a new language, there is so much material to cover: vocabulary, grammar, syntax, slang, pronunciation... With so many topics to study, you may not know where to focus your attention. In this video, I will give you some tips to organize your schedule and decide what you should work on. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced speaker, you can always find something to improve on, and I will give you the tools you need to devise a good plan. Hint: it's more simple than you think! http://www.engvid.com/steps-to-learning-english-where-to-begin/ TRANSCRIPT [Singing] Hi. James. Greer. James Greer. From engVid. [Laughs]. Not Bond, and I know you think I was going to say Bond. I know. But listen, Bond always has an important mission he's got to do, right? 007. And so do I. Today we have a mission. We're going to learn how to study English. I know in many places, many websites, they tell you, and to teach you grammar and idioms and phrasal verbs. But then, there's the big question of you, and: How do you study, and how do you choose what is important for you at this moment? Maybe you're advanced. Maybe you're a beginner. Maybe you know this, and maybe you don't. After today's lesson and we do our mission, you'll know exactly what you have to do. Okay? So, we're going to go to the board in a second, and take a look. What steps should we take in order to learn? By the time you're done this video, you'll know exactly... Or you should know where you are, where you need to go, and when you're going to be done. Ready? Let's go. E. E is standing here saying: "Where do I start? Grammar, vocabulary, or speaking?" Common, and seems to make sense, I mean, you go to learn a language-right?-you go on a website, they start throwing things at you. You go to a school, they say you need this, this, and this. But you don't really know. So, I'm going to give you the tools to decide that. First thing we're going to do is: What's the first thing you need? Grammar? No. What? Conversation? No. Vocabulary. What? Well, look. If you can't say: "bathroom" when you go to a country, you're going to pee yourself. Okay? "Hungry", you won't get food. You don't need to know everything to get basic information done. And that's what we should look at first. Basic information for a beginner really is vocabulary. And instead of all the fancy stuff you need, you don't need much. You need you, and a little bit of time, and to have some fun. Why? I'm going to suggest: For basic communication, get vocabulary. I'm telling you right now if I see you or any English-speaking person sees you, and you see... You say: "Drink. Thirsty." There's no grammar, but they'll go: "Oh, the bar is over there." If you say: "Washroom. Please", they'll go: "Oh, toilet is over there." They use sentence, you use words. Sometimes you just touch your belly and go: "Ahh!" They'll go: "Oh, you want food." You don't need all that stuff. People will tell you you need to learn grammar, and this and that. You don't. And here's how you get your first vocabulary. Do what you love to do. Play video games. I've had... I don't know how many students play video games, say they learned how to fire, duck, words that we wouldn't teach them for a while, because they were playing games. Other people come in: "Dah-dah-dah-dah-dah, [sings]", singing. I go: -"What the hell?" -"I love to sing", and they sing a song, they sound like they're just, you know, from this country. Then they speak very terrible accent. You know what I'm saying, right? [Laughs] But when they sing, it's like the gods have come down. I mean, literally, you go: "Are you...? You were born here, right?" Cool slang. You know? YOLO, you only live once. Right? ASAP, as soon as possible. When you do these things, you're learning because you want to learn. You're not even realising you're learning, and it's going to make you want to learn more because... You know, we'll get to the second one and you'll understand. But you want to communicate in a much better way. Okay? So, get the meaning of basic words. "Hungry", "food", "toilet", "money". You know that one, right? You need those things. If you have those things, you can start your adventure in learning English. Okay? And you're going to do it by doing things you love. Video games, music, cool slang. Right? Come on. Now we're making language fun and easy for you, and that's what we should do, because you'll learn it faster. All right? And then here's the bad news: Hard work is on its way, so let's move over to the intermediate.
