1. Intro to Confusing/Misused English Words: Hi, everyone. My name is over and I'm an English teacher. I have four years and experience in teaching English, various different students. I've thought that schools, educational centres and I've even worked as a private tutor. Also throughout my years, in teaching English, I noticed that some beginner English and even sometimes even some native speakers they confuse and they misuse similar words. They confused between certain words that sound similar, would have similar Phoenix. So this scarcer classes called common confusing or misused English words were going to be examining some words that confused many people and sound similar or appear similar, actually very going to be taking many different examples. And as all, of course, we're going to have in class projects and some of it and exercises to help you to get started and get you going. So I hope you enjoy this class. Let's get started 2. Lose, Loose, & Loss: All right. So welcome back, everyone to our first lesson in this class. As we said, this class is called common confusing or misused words. Words that seem similar but aren't actually the same. Okay, so let's start with the first words that seem similar. We have in this lesson, we have lose loose and loss. Okay, lets it again. Lose loose on gloss. Okay. These are some words that sound similar, but actually different and mean. So let's start with news. All right. So what can you see here in this picture here? It looks like it's ah boxing match on how many players do we have? Two players. Very good on. Who is the person in the middle? He is like the referee, right? He's saying Who is going to win and who is going to lose? Very good. So which of these players is going toe win the match. The one on the right. Very good. And who is going toe lose the match? The one on the left? Because he doesn't look happy, right? If I lose something, that means I did not win, okay? Or I no longer have something like if I lose my money. That means I don't have my money. I lose. The match means I did not win the match. Okay, now we notice this This word. Now we noticed this word I say lose my pronounces with his ed, but I write it with an s on it, Only one old. Okay, so I say lose with a said Okay, lose like this. Very good. But I always write it with an s and there's only one. Okay, so if I lose a match, that means I did not win or I lose my money or I lose something important. Ok, that means I don't have it anymore. And when I want to use this verb in the past so I can see lost Okay, So this player or the boxer on the left, he lost the match because it's in the past. Okay, where he is going toe lose the match. Now. I don't confuse this word with this one. Loose. Okay, Now we notice I write it with tours. Double o. Okay, there's an s understand me, but I see what loose I pronounce it with an s. The other one was lose, but this one is loose within s okay if I want to. Used as a verb becomes loosen. Also within s loosen. Now, what can you see here in the pictures? It looks like a boy. Maybe. Or, uh, yeah. He looks like a young boy. A teenager, maybe on he's wearing shoes. Do the shoes fit him properly? Or are they too big? The shoes are too big, right? That means they are loose. If something is loose, that means it's not tight. It's not touching my skin very strongly. Okay. Like as we said here, shoes are loose. Means they're too big. So they're not tight on his feet. What else can be loose? My T shirt. If my T shirt is too big, it can become loose. My trousers. My trousers are my trousers. If they are too big, it can become loose. Okay, If I'm sitting in an airplane or I'm sitting in a car on the belt, the belt is loose. That means it's not tight. It's not strongly on me. Okay, If I go to the dentist, I can go to return. This may be because my tooth becomes loose. Means it's not strong. It's moving a lot. Okay, So that's what it means to be loose. Totally different. Meaning from lose. Okay, so don't confuse between these two words. So the word loose means it's not tight on. It's No, it's not strong on my skin. Very good. How about this word? This word is loss. Okay? I write it with two s is on when he won all but I pronounce it loss. I say off. Okay. There's no a tall, So I sing law loss. Okay, Now, this word is actually related to the 1st 1 The first word which is lose. But this is the now. Okay? Like for example, as you can see here in the picture weight loss. Okay. So I can either say I'm going toe lose point it, or I'm going tohave. Wait, los. Okay, don't confuse also between these two words. Just simply one of them is a verb on. One of them is a now lost. As you can see in this picture, it's a noun. Okay, So toe have a weight loss. That means I'm going to lose weight. Loss itself means decrees in something. Okay, so it could be lost off money. Loss of weight loss off points lost off anything. Okay, Very good. So these are the three words off this lesson. Don't confuse between them. Let's look at some examples for lose, as we said, loses the verb, which means toe not win or not Have. Like, for example, I don't want to lose the match. Okay? It's a verb I'm seeing lose with a said Don't lose the money the mother told her son on I don't want to lose my temper. Don't make me angry. So these are examples for lose. As we said, it's pronounced with said OK, how about some examples for loose? Okay, we said loose means it's not strong on my skin or it's too big. So these shoes are too big and loose. I can't wear them that my trousers became loose after I lost weight. Okay. I lost weight. Okay. On my trousers became too big to loose. They're not tight. Good T shirt became baggy. Andi loose after it was in the washing machine. Don't forget I write this word with double old on. I pronounce it with Sir Essent. Very good. How about some examples for loss? It will be a major loss if you left the company. It was clear that the man had a loss off here. There was a loss off points for the team. Now, what do we notice here? We said loss is a noun. Okay, Andi, it's pronounced off law, not Luke. So I'm saying Law lost, sir, on we notice. Also that usually before loss there's the article A. Okay, so it will be a major loss. It was clear that the man had a loss off here. There was a loss off points. Okay, because it's a noun. So you have to say our loss. Very good. So I hope these examples make it a bit clearer. Now it's your turn to think about these questions, and you can answer them in the project section in the class. Very good. Question one. Did you ever lose a match number two? What is the situation that you would consider a loss? Number three. What would you do with trousers that are too loose? So that's it. Except guys, I hope you enjoy this lesson. And in the next lesson, we're going to be taking more confusing or misused ports. Thank you very much. 3. Vein, Vain, & in Vain: Okay. Welcome back, everyone. To the next lesson in this class in common confusing and misused words in the previous lesson two chords like lose loose and loss. In this lesson, we're going to be taking the difference between words like vain, the vein and in vain. We noticed straightaway. They all have the same sound. One of them's with Annie. One of them is with an A on I can also say in vain. Okay, so you have. So the easy thing is that the old have the same sound. The vein. Okay, let's start with the 1st 1 that has an e in it. Okay, This word is vain. This is the one with the E. Okay, now, what can you see here in the picture? This looks as if it's the body of a human being, right? We all have bodies. What can we see inside? I see a lot of things, right. What do we have in the middle? They have the heart, right? What is coming out of the heart and what is going back to the heart. Okay, So what does the heart do? The heart is responsible for the pumping the blood throughout the body. This is a bit science, see? But this is how it is. Okay, This is the word vain. Vain means the vessels in the body that transport the blood back to the part. Okay, So this is the words, Vin. In other words, the vein is something very important to the body. Gait is something very important because it's it's blood, basically. Okay. And sometimes if I say to somebody you are like my veins. That means I'm seeing this sport. This person is very important to me. Just like my normal veins are very important. Very good. So this is the word vain. Don't mix on. Don't confuse this word with this words. Vain. Okay. Same pronunciation, but different letters. And it hasn't in units. Okay. And the only only way I would know the difference is through the sentence itself or through the context. OK, very good. What can you see here in the picture? It's This is an old cartoon. If you remember for Johnny, I think his name was Johnny Bravo, I think, and saying Who's that handsome guy? He's looking into his own reflection into the mirror and saying, Oh, my God, I'm so beautiful. I'm so handsome. I'm so beautiful. I'm so handsome. What does this say about his character? What does this say about his personality? It says that he shows vein. So vain means that he thinks very much off himself. He thinks he's better than other people is a bit arrogant. Okay, Thinks he's better. Okay. He believes maybe he is the best. Okay, He's the most handsome is the strongest. Okay, this is me. This is what it means to have vein or to show vin. Okay. Means you're very arrogant. You're very sure We think you're better than other people. Very good. Now, sometimes also, this words vein with an E can come before the before the proposition in. Okay, so this is like a certain expression or allegation when I say in vain. Okay. Now what? Can you see it in the picture? It looked as if there's ah, woman, I think Andi. She looks as if she's so tired. She's had enough. She's sitting at the laptop. Andi. She feels as if there's no use. She wants to do something. Maybe right. But it feels as if it's just too much. She can't do it anymore. Okay, so all her efforts, everything that she has done has become in vain. So in vain means when I do everything I can and then a dent, I don't get the results that I want. Okay? Like when I save a lot of money to buy something and then I don't buy it, for example, so it means something in vain. Okay, Means I tried my best on at the same time. At the end, I didn't get the results that I wanted Like her, for example. Maybe she's fed up. She feels if it's too much and she didn't get the results she wanted, So everything has become in vain. So it's pointless. It's not important now. It's impossible. It's It's not worth it anymore. Very good guys. Now let's look at some examples written examples, examples for vein. Okay, remember we said vein is the things in the body that transport blood back to the heart. Like, for example, his veins aren't strong. A person his veins could It could not be strong. Veins transport blood to the heart. The man needs a blood transplant for his veins. Okay, So as we as we can see It's all related to blood on heart, on the body. Good. How about examples for this one vein within A. He is known for his vein. He thinks he's better than others. Don't have vain. People will hate you for it. Okay. Don't think you're better than other people because people will hate you here. In good words, from his boss made James vein. Okay, So as we noticed, we can say we can say he is known for his vein. You could say have vein on we could say make person vein. Okay. So it could come with many different verbs before it. Good on. How about this one in vain? Okay, let's look at some examples. He bought the new car in vain. Why? Because he didn't use it. So it was pointless. It was wasn't worth it. It wasn't in vain that he saved the money. Why? Because he really needed it now. So it wasn't in vain. It wasn't pointless. Whatever you say to me will be in vain and not change my mind. Okay, So if I'm upset with somebody and I'm telling this person nothing you ever safety musical is going to change my mind. Everything is going to be in vain except very good to These are some examples for the three . Don't confuse between them. And now it's your turn. You can find these questions in the project. Why is it important to have strong veins? Is it good tohave vein? Who was a person? You know that has vein somebody that you know on What is something that you did once in vain? Something that you once did in vain. It was pointless. It wasn't worth it. Didn't get the results that you wanted. So that's it, guys. Thank you very much for this. And in the next lesson, we're going to be taking more confusing and misused words. Thank you. 4. Breathe, Breath, & Breeze: Okay. Welcome back. Everyone to common confusing and misuse words in the previous lesson we spoke about vain, vain in vain. In this lesson, we're going to be discussing common, confusing words like breathe dress and these. Okay, let's listen to these words again, Viv. Breath on grease. Okay. They sound a bit similar for their totally different. Okay, let's listen again. Breathe. Pronounce it with the sound breath, pronouncing it with sound. And then the last one breeze pronouncing it with uh huh sounds very good. So let's look at the 1st 1 What does this word mean? Okay, this is the word. Breathe. And as you can see, it is a verb. Something. It's an action. That is something that I do. Okay. Like what can you see here, for example, in the picture, this is a person, right? Andi, what is this person doing with his nose and with his mouth? He is breathing. Okay, So greed means to take in air on oxygen, right? And you're exhaling also out if or carbon dioxide. Okay, so to breathe thistles. The action that every living thing does like animals, threes, human beings. We all have to breathe. It's an action. Something that we do we breathe means we taken air on. We also produce if Okay, so it's very important for us to breathe as human beings or as living things. Okay, so we breathe in oxygen on. Obviously, this helps the brain, as you can see, and it helps the lungs. And it helps the heart, and it helps all of the body. Okay. Can we breathe underwater? Of course. Not very good. How about if there's a very bad smell where there's a strong fire nearby and we breathe normally? Also? No. Very good about when we practice sports. What do we do a lot? We always Okay, so we're breathing in a lot. So sports, for example, or yoga? All of these health help us to breathe. Uh, very good. So don't confuse this word, which is an action or a verb is something that you do. Don't confuse it with this one, which is GREss way Noticed. I wrote a breath. Okay, because it's singular. It's one breath. Okay, I'm prominent. Breath the breath. Ebri say breath. Yeah, I see. It's the the 1st 1 It was the this one. It's so it's after breath. Okay, Now, because it's has our before It. That means it's a noun. It's a thing. Okay, Like as you can see it in the picture, it says, take a deep breath. So what's the difference between breathe on breath somehow? Similares Okay, Only that one of them is a verb, and the other is a noun. Okay, so breathe. This is action. This is what you do. Okay, well, as breath, this is, like the air itself. Like to take a deep breath. Okay. I can't say take a deep breathe. Okay. Well, I can't see. I'm breath in. No. You see, I am breathing, or I'm taking a deep breath. Okay? Breath is like the air itself. It's the thing. Okay, Breath. So don't confuse between these two words because a lot of people do. Very good. Excellent. So this is breathe on breath. Now we have breeze. Okay. Pronouncing it with her zed. Very strong said and again, it has the e sounds. So don't confuse between breathe, breath and breeze. This is also announce What can you see here in the pictures? It looks as if they looks as if we have some plants. Maybe or trees, and the trees are moving strongly. Now. Why do you think they are moving strongly? Maybe because there is a The wind may be right or they're strong strong here. Okay, there's a light here. So we call this air or wind. Call it a breeze. It's a nice breeze. Means it's a nice here that makes things move slightly. And it makes me breathe. Also wet. Okay, so this is the breeze. It's a thing. It means also you're nice here. Or nice weather or wind. Very good. So this is Please don't confuse between these three. Let's look at some examples for breathe, Which is the verb. For example. This smells so bad, I can't breathe. Okay, so it's a verb. It's an action. I can't breathe. People can't breathe on the water. Okay. We can't breathe on the water. We can do this action. It is harder to breathe. We're in a face mask, right? You don't wanna, but it is also much healthier. Okay, so it's harder to breathe. It's an action. Okay? It's an action that we can don't. Good. How about this one? Dress or address? Okay. I need to catch my breath. I have been running for five minutes. Okay. Breath is the thing itself. Okay? I need a breath of fresh if Okay. Also we notice has before it because it's a noun. Very good. Take a deep breath, then speak in front of the class. You can say take a deep breathe. This is wrong. Say, take a deep breath. It's the here itself that you taken. Very good. How about some examples for please? Okay. There's a nice breeze today. The weather is nice. Okay. There will be a nice breeze next Sunday. Let's go for a picnic in the park. As we said, Breeze is a nice air. Nice weather. Nice winds. Okay. Breeze blew the papers. There were some papers, and the trees made the papers fly off. Good. So now you know the difference between these three confusing, misused words. Now it's your turn. You can think about these questions and you can answer them in the project. Section number one. What do we breathe as humans? Numbers do What is a sport that helps you regulate your breath? What is a sport that makes you have a normal breath? Okay. Make sure makes your breath much yet. Number three. When was the last time? There was a nice breeze. Okay. When was the last time there was a nice weather. Nice air. Nice wind where you live. Okay, so that's it, guys, these are these three confusing and misused words. Check out the next lesson which we take you on. More confusing, misused words. Thank you very much. 5. Compliment & Complement: Okay. Welcome back. Everyone to comment confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson in this class, and in this lesson, we're going to be taking the words compliment. Andi compliment. Now we know two straight away that they both sound the exact same compliment on compliment . OK, the only thing is that one of them is with an eye, and one of them's with any. Okay, So do they have the same meaning? No, they have the same sound, but they don't have the same meaning. Let's look at the 1st 1 Okay. The 1st 1 is compliment with an eye. Okay. And as you can see here in the picture, let's read. What does it say? I have words like, way to go. Good job. Well done. You're the man. Thumbs up and you broke. I noticed straight away that all of the's are good words, Words off encouragement. Words that I say to someone to make him feel better. Okay. For words that I say okay to show the good qualities about someone. Okay, so if I compliment someone, what I give somebody a compliment could be used as a verb or as a noun. If I compliment someone or give someone a compliment? This means I'm saying good things about this person. Okay? I'm saying good things about this person, and I'm praising this person. So I'm saying good things about him. Like, good job. Well done. You're fantastic. You're amazing. Okay. I could complement somebody's clothes by saying his clothes are Are they look nice, For example, I could complement his car. Could complement his house. I could complement his Children. Okay. Or is Children are students, for example, at school. So I compliment somebody. That means I'm saying somebody is good seeing the good things about someone. Okay. Very good. How about the other one? The other one? That's with an E. Okay. Sounds the exact same compliment. Okay, but it's with anything. Now. What can you see here in the picture? It looks like a meal or a dish. Andi, Maybe it's like some chips. Right? Some chips or some potato chips? Right on. We have some to, um, dips with them. Okay. Very good. So what do we usually do with these chips? Okay. Really? Convict them in these dips. Okay. Whatever these lips, maybe could be source could be, uh, manganese. Could be cheese. Could be anything. All right. Could be something spicy. So these two foods go together, right? They complete each other. OK, so this is the meaning off complement. It comes from the word complete. Okay. They complete each other. They go well with each other. Okay. They are served together. Okay, They go Well, they complete each other, Okay? They taste nice together, for example. Okay, so to complement means they go well together. They complete one another. Okay. Like these to foods, for example, Or two colors that complement each other or two. People are husband and wife. They complement each other. Means they complete one another. They go well together. Okay, so it's a totally different meaning from the 1st 1 Okay, let's look at some examples for compliment with an I Okay. I could say, for example, I received a nice compliment from my boss today. He told me I was a hard works. Okay, so it's a nice word. A compliment, right? Okay. It is always nice to hear a compliment. It's something nice. Obviously. When here, compliments from someone makes you happy. Some people are very critical. They never give compliments to others. They never give compliments. They never say good things about other people. Why? Because they're very critical. Critical means they are looking at the bad things in life. Okay, so this is the meaning off. These are some examples for the 1st 1 compliment with annoy. How about the other one compliment with an E, as we said, Compliment into two things that complete each other. If I say, for example, black and blue could be complementary colors. Okay, I'm using addition. Complementary here as an adjective. Okay, So black and blue could be complementary colors because they look well, They looked. They look nice together, black and blue. Okay. Fish and chips are foods that are complementary in the UK If you go to if you ever travel to the UK, you always eat fish. They always eat fish and chips together. Okay. Two types of foods that go well together. They taste nice together on the last one. The football players work as a group and complement each other in the game to win it. Okay, That's because we don't have one football player. We have many players working together in a group, so they have to complete one another. That's how they can become perfect. Very good guys. For these were examples for both words. Now it's your turn. You can answer these questions in the project section down below. Okay, question one. What was the most recent compliment you heard from someone? It was the most recent complement. What is the most recent good words or something good that you heard from someone that he said about you? Okay, what are colors that complement each other? They complete each other. What are types of spices that complement each other? Types of spices, types, off spices that we use and foods that complement each other. So that's it, guys, I hope you enjoyed this lesson on. In the next lesson, we're going to be discussing more confusing and misused English words. Thank you very much. 6. Aisle & Isle: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson in this class. Are less than three is about two words that sound similar and appear similar, but are actually very, very different in meaning. Okay, what are these two words? We have aisle with an a, an aisle with an i. So they both have the exact same sound, the same pronunciation. Okay, aisle and iron. And that's why it's confusing. So the sound the same, but do they have the same meaning? No. Let's start with the first one aisle with an a. As you can see here in this picture. This is an ion. Ok. It looks as if it's like a pathway or a passage or a narrow passage between different shelves, for example, in a store or in a warehouse. Okay, so we call this an aisle because it's a long passage between two different things. Okay. This is the one with an a. So this is an aisle. Now this ion could be, as we can see it in the pictures in a store. This aisle could be in a supermarket, for example, an aisle, aisle seven, IL-8. This aisle could be in a department store or in a hotel, for example, or in a long corridor. This ion could also be anywhere else, like up to the beach. And also here, for example, an aisle on a plane. Okay, because it's a long and narrow IN between between the seats. Here in the middle of the seats in an airplane. We call this passage or this pathway. We call it an aisle. Very good. Now, don't confuse this word with this one. Il. This IL is with an eye, okay. And so actually short for Ireland. And Ireland is a place in the middle of the sea. Ok. And similarly, IL is just short for Ireland, but it's a very small island, as you can see here, for example, this is an aisle, okay? The S is silent. So it's an ion because it's in the middle of the sea and it smelled. Another pixel for an ion, for example, is this one. It's in the middle of the sea and it's a small island. And this one also in the middle of the sea and it's a small ion. Okay? So that's it. This is the difference between these two words. Let's look at some of the examples for ion with an aim. Someone might ask someone, for example, Would you like a window seat or an aisle seat? The person working the airport might ask you, Would you like a window seat or an aisle seats? Where do you want to sit? In the middle? What you want to decide? The window. Ok. There were lots of flowers and declarations in the ion, in the passage or in the middle, there were a lot of flowers and decorations. And you will find the meat products and aisle six. Imagine if you're in a supermarket and each aisle has a different number and each I, l has a different product. Ok, so you will find in the meat products in Iron number six. Very good. Let's look at some examples for the other one, aisle with an i. And as we said, also the SS silent. If I say for example, the aisle was deserted and in the middle of the ocean. Okay, the iron was completely empty. It's in the middle of the ocean. Many people, sorry, many rich people by their own aisles to live in. They buy an island or a small island, an aisle so that they can live in. And also the ion of man. It's a beautiful place in the UK. That's the name of this ion is called the ion of man. To the Isle of Man is a beautiful place in the UK. So as we can see from these examples, an aisle is a small island. It's a place in the middle of the ocean. So that's it. This was our lesson. Here you have some questions now it's your turn. You can answer these questions in the project section. Or down below. Very good. Which famous aisle would you like to travel to? A famous aisle that you would like to travel to? Question two, in which I am in the supermarket and you find the fruits and vegetables, which I am. And number three, do you like window seats or aisle seats on the plane? And y, which do you prefer? When you travel by plane? Which seats do you like? You like window seats or aisle seats in the middle. So that's it. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and I'm going to see you in the next lesson. Thank you very much. 7. Uninterested & Disinterested: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson in this class. And in this lesson we're going to be discussing these two words, uninterested and disinterested. Now they look similar, but they are totally different in meaning. The first one is uninterested, the second one is disinterested. Okay, let's start with uninterested. As you can see here in this picture. This is one of the Simpsons, the Simpson characters. And she looks very bored. She looks as if she is fed up. She's not interested in something. Ok. So if I want to see I'm bored or I don't really care about something, then I can say I am on interested. Like for example, this Simpsons kept. Another picture, for example, also is here. This man who was lying down on the bench or leaning back on the bench, is uninterested. Means he's bald. He's not really caring, is not interested in anything. This is what it means to be uninterested. You're not interested in something or you're bored by something. Very good. Now don't confuse this word with this one. Disinterested. Now what can you see here in this picture? This person looks like referee, a person who is responsible for judging between teams and uncertain match or an uncertain game. Okay, now, let's say for example, he's a referee for football. Ok, how many teams do we have in a football game or a football match? We have two teams, right? Team a and team B, for example. Now this referential and take any side, you shouldn't take the side of Timmy, and it shouldn't be with Team B. So you should be in the middle. Ok, that's what it means to be disinterested, means you're impartial. You don't feel as if you love or you hate anybody. Your fears, your treating everybody equally. Okay? This is what it means to be disinterested. You're impartial or you're not really caring about any of the teams. You're treating everyone equally. You don't have a preference. Okay? This is what it means to be disinterested. Another picture, for example, is this picture, which is the picture for justice or balance. Okay? So if a person is disinterested, as we said, is a person who is impartial or he treats everybody fairly and equally. And he doesn't really have a certain preference he doesn't like or hate anybody, is just disinterested, is not really caring about something. Very good guys. So they are a bit similar, but don't confuse between them. Let's look at some examples for uninterested. If I say, for example, I am uninterested in politics, that means I don't like politics, I'm not interested in politics. He said he was uninterested in the movie. He didn't like it. Again, he was not interested in the movie. He was bored. He didn't really like this movie. I am so unadjusted At the moment. I think I will sleep. A person is saying this will, for example, when he is very bored and it doesn't know what to do, so is just going to sleep. I am saw uninterested at the moment. Very good. How about the other word? Let's look at some examples. Disinterested. The judge has to be fair and disinterested. Okay. This is the job of the judge. He has to be fair. He has to be impartial and asked to treat everybody equally. In today's match. The referee wasn't totally disinterested why? He took the side of the blue team. Okay. So we said the referee is supposed to be disinterested in today's match. He was not totally disinterested. Okay. Why? Because he took the sign of the blue team, so he wasn't fair. And another example is the teacher was disinterested and asked both students to apologize to each other. In other words, the teacher did not take any of the students sides. She asked, or this teacher asked both students to apologize. So this teacher was fair to both students. Very good guys. So that's it. Let's look at some of the questions. It's your turn now, what was the situation in which you were uninterested? A situation that was boring and that you are not interested in and made you feel bored. Question two, What is a subject you are uninterested in? Again, another subject that you don't like, or you find this boring, or you don't have any interest in. Question three, When are you disinterested? Describe a situation, describing a situation which you are disinterested and you were treating everybody equally or you didn't have a certain preference for something. So that's it guys. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and we will continue with the next lesson with more confusing and misused English words. Thank you very much. 8. Break & Brake: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson. And in this lesson we're going to be taking these two words, break. And Rick. Again, we notice they have the same exact pronunciation. Break and break the same sound. But they have different letters, different spreading, and different meanings. They don't have the same meaning. So let's look at the first one. Brick. Okay, as you can see here in the picture, I have some like chalk. And these chalk I can use to write on the board. But they are not complete or they're not intact, they are broken. So if they are broken, that means that someone or I could say, I break the chalk, I will break the torque. That means they have become broken, means they are not complete and there have been broken. So this is what it means to break something. To break something means to put something. It could be to put something in the middle or to make it into two or three different parts. Okay. And usually it's something bad if I break something like here, I broke the chalk. So I break the chalk for example. I could also, and this is something perhaps I could break somebody's heart. As you can see here in the vector. The heart is broken. Okay? The heart isn't two places or in two pieces. So someone has broken this part here. What I could say, I will break this part. Okay. It doesn't mean that my heart is going to be damage in two places, which just means that I'm going to feel very sad. So to break somebody's heart means to make somebody feel very sad or disappointed. Also, as you can see here in the picture, this looks as if it's like a car and the wheel. It hasn't, doesn't have any wheel, for example, on the right. So the wheel is broken or the car has broken down. Or someone broke this car. Okay. Or I will break this car again, that means it's not working properly or it's in two different different pieces. So to break, a CAF means it is broken, it's not working, it's not working properly. Okay? Like here for example. Again, we could use break for many different things. Like if I break the glass, I break the glass, that means I made it into different pieces. The glass is no longer in one piece, but it's in many broken and many different broken pieces. So to break a glass again, means to put it into different pieces. And you could also use it for mobile phones. You could use it for, actually for many different things. These are just some examples I could say also I broke my phone or my phone is broken. I will break the phone or to break something, as you can see, means to make it not working. It's no longer working properly. I can't use it as such. So to break my mobile phone. Very good. Now don't confuse break with this one. Brick. Okay, BAR a, K, E, okay? As you can see here in the picture, this is like a wheel for a Ferrari car. And what can you see inside the red part or the orange part? These are the brakes. The brakes, what do the breaks because because do the breaks make the car stop okay. Or makes makes the car slowed down. Okay. So these are this is the function of the brakes. The brakes are the things that keep the car slowing down or keep the the plane slowing down or the bike or the SharePoint, anything. Ok, so the brakes are the things that slow the car down. Now could could also be used as a verb. Okay. To break ins, to stop on the brakes or to slow something down by keys, for example, you see the car it is breaking. Ok. Means what? It's slowing down, pressing on the brakes or it is slowing down. Very good. So that's it guys does this difference between brake and rate? These are some examples. For the first one. For example, if I could say we will have a break from the meeting at eight o'clock. That means the meeting is not going to continue in all. We're going to have a break in the middle. Okay. A split from the meeting at eight o'clock. I could also say, don't throw the phone or you will break it. Again. You could make the foreign indifferent pieces. So this is going to be breaking it. And I could also tell somebody, this is a word, a word that many parents say. For example, if you break it, you will fix it. Okay? If you break something, then it's your responsibility to fix this thing. Okay. Very good. How about some examples for the other one be Ira key. I could say, for example, press on the bricks to make the car stop. I could also say my breaks, which has an own, my brakes aren't working properly. I will get new ones. So the brakes aren't working properly. Okay. And this is very dangerous because how will I managed to stop the car? How will I be able to slow down is a very dangerous. So that's why I need to get new car drinks. Very good. So that's it, guys. This is the difference. Now it's your turn and can answer these questions in the project section down below. When do you take a break from work? When is you'll break from work? I could also ask, have you ever broken something before? Have you ever broken something before? You could say yes, I I have broken or I broke or I will break something. And number three, What happens when you press on the bike? Rakes? What will happen when you press on the bike? Tricks X and faster, that's it. This was our lesson. I hope you enjoyed it and we will continue in the next lesson. Thank you very much. 9. Currant & Current: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson. And in this lesson we're going to be taking these two words, current and current. Now they have the exact same pronunciation, the exact same sound, but it's a different spelling, as you can see, one of them is within a month comes with an E, And they also have different meanings. Let's start with the first one. Current with an a. Now as you can see here in the picture, what can you see? This looks like as if it's a small bowl or basket, for example, and it has a type of fruit inside the type of food, right? We call this fruit current. Okay? Or I have many different currents if this bowl, okay? So it's a type of fruit, looks like grips. Alright? So this is the current within a. This is also another picture of many currents. Okay? As you can see, it's a type of fruit that's very juicy, taste nice, for example. So it's a type of fruit that you can have after meals, for example. So we call this current with an a. Now this is the easy one. Don't confuse this with the other one with an E current. And we can say current and we can see also currently. What can you see here in the picture? I can see a picture that says now or later. And I'm going to circle now. So something has happened currently, or it's the current thing that is happening. That means it's happening now. It's happening at the moment or its happening these days, or it's the certain stage that I am in now. Okay. Like I said, if I say I'm currently teaching a class, I'm currently listening to the radio. I'm currently talking to my friend. I if I could say also, I'm currently in my second year at university. That means I'm now at the moment in my second year at university. Okay. So it's a different meaning from the, from the first one. This is current with an e, ok, and also currently, meaning it happens while it's happening now. And we also have different meanings for current with an E. Like for example, what can you see here in the pictures? This looks as if it's a river or water. And water usually flows in one direction, right? So we call this the water current. The current is the direction of flow. It is moving from the north to the, to the south, for example, or from the south to the north, or from the east to the west or from up to down. We call this the water current, the direction of the flow of the water, the water stream. Ok. Obviously it's a different meaning from current with an a and it has a different meaning from current meaning now, it's unowned actually sorta water current. That means it's the water stream or the water flow from one direction to another. Now this word also which is unowned current we can use it for and electricity current. Again, this is similar to the water current, meaning the electricity is moving from one direction to another. If there's an electricity current, then that means that the electricity is work. That electricity is strong. As you can see here in the picture. That looks as if there's electricity around. So this is called the electricity current, which can be very dangerous to touch. Okay, so we call this the electricity current. Again, it is a very good. So these are some examples for current with an a, which means the type of food. I could say, for example, these currents taste delicious. I will make a fruit salad and add currents are going to make a fruit salad and add some currents in the fruit salad. I could also, this currents are sweet because they taste sweet. So this is current with any. As for current with an E, We said could have many different meanings. Like for example, I could say I am currently tidying my room. So I'm doing it now. I'm currently tidying my room. I could also say the water current was so strong and drifted the kid's toy ship away. That's the water current, it's the water flow, the water stream, which is an app. Also I could say, for example, don't touch the wires or you will get a shock from the electric current. Wires are the things that make the electricity pass from one place to another. So again, it's related to current. Don't touch the wires. We are going to get a shock and electric shock from the electric current. Very good guys. So that's it. These were some of the examples. Let's look at the questions. Now. It's user1. I could ask you, for example, what are you currently doing these days? What are you currently doing these days? Question to what meals? And you use currents in currents with an a, what meals can you put or add or use currents in? Number three, what is the current score of the match? What does the current score of the match means? What is the score now of the match or the game? I'm question for where can you find a strong water current? Can you find the strong motor current? As you can see these questions here tackle the different meanings of the word current and current. So you can find these questions in the project section down below. Thank you very much and I will see you in the next lesson. 10. Stationary & Stationery: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. We have a new lesson. And this lessons about these two words, which are stationary and stationary. Again, they both have the exact same transition, exact same sound, but they are different and spelling and different and meaning. One of them is with an e and one of them is with an E. So also difference between these two words. Let's not confuse between them. And let's start with the first one. Stationary with an a. As you can see here in this picture. What do we have? We have OK. And is this dog moving? Is this dog running? Is the stock jumping or is this dog complete? Still not moving whatsoever. Very good. He's not moving at all. Ok. So this dog is stationary with an a. Okay. So this is what it means. If something is stationary with an E, that means it's not moving. Ok, it's not moving at all. It's still it stable. It is stationary. So it's an adjective Of course, because I'm describing something, meaning I'm seeing something is not moving. And we got, how about the other one? Stationary with an E? What can you see in this picture? We have pencils, pens, highlighters, scissors, looks like an eraser. Scissors, Penn's colors, paper, charts, pencil case. So station involves all of these different things, things that I used to write an erase and things that I need in school, for example, or saying things that I might use for work. Okay, we call these the stationary with an e. Okay? So it's a noun because it's a thing, or these things together depends, depends of the resource, the sharpener, scissors, the highlighter, the paper. All of this is called stationary. Very good. So let's look at some examples for stationary with an a. As we said, means a person is not moving or something is not moving. Like if I say, for example, the fly was stationary on the wall for a couple of hours. That means the fly was on the wall and it didn't move. We didn't move for couple of hours. I could also say the car was stationary and didn't want to move. That means that there was something wrong with the car. It was broken down and couldn't start and couldn't move. So that means the car was not moving. It was stationary. Very good. I've got some examples for stationary with an e. I could say, for example, I need to buy some stationary for school. It's important. And I can also say, or I can ask, where can we buy stationery items from? Where is the nearest place that we can buy stationery items from? Very good guys. So that's it. Now it's your turn. You have some questions here. Question one, Why was the cat stationary? The cat not moving? Question two, will, can you buy stationery from where is the nearest place? Whereas the datastore, for example, that you can buy stationery from. And question three. When can the car be stationary? Describe a situation in which the car can be stationary? But I go to that set. These were some questions and you can answer them down below in the project section. Thank you very much. 11. Advise & Advice: Okay, hello and welcome back everyone to common confusion and misused words. We have another lesson, which is the difference between these two words. A lot of people confuse between these two words and they use them as if they're the same thing, but they are different. Advice and advice. Let's listen again, advise and advice. Now the first one that has an S in it, I pronounce it with a z sound. So as zed sound advice. Okay, and the other ones that certain with a C, I actually pronounce the sound. So what's advice? Okay? So also the difference between these two. Let's look at this one adviser. This is a verb or an action, something that somebody does like. For example, who do we have? Do we see here in this picture? This is the doctor. The doctor could advise me to take medicine, to stay addressed, to eat healthy food, to do many different things. Alright, to do many different healthy things. So he's advising me this person is doing an action. So it's the action itself or to the verb itself to advise someone. Ok. Now, don't confuse it with this one. Advice. Again, we have the same lovely doctor. But this time, what's he saying? Take the medicine. So take the medicine. This is the advice itself. The advice. I could see he advised me with an s. But what was the advice? What was the thing that he said? What was the kind of help? What was, what were the words that he said? Or the thing itself? We call this the voice. Like he's saying, take the medicine, this is an advice. It addressed. This is an advice. Take a break from work. This is an advice. Eat your vegetables. This is an advice. Okay. So it's a bit confusing, but that's because they are very similar. So if it's an action, a fine doing something, it's advisor. And thing itself is the advice that kind of help or the words. Let's look at some examples for advice that's written with an S, pronouns with z. I could say my mom advised me to study. She's advising me to study. She's telling me to study. This is very important. Right? She's advising issues trying to help me out. So my doctor advised me to rest in bed for three days. He's advising me again, it's a verb, an action. My friends advised me to buy a new car. Again. A verb, an action. This person is doing something. So to advise us for advice, help itself for the thing itself or the words themselves. Like, for example, my grandmother gives us the best advice. She gives the best advice, the best kind of help. I need your help. I came for your advice on my business. I went to somebody to ask for his advice so I want his help. And I could also say I always go to my friend whenever I need any advice, whenever I need help, whenever I need words of reassurance and encouragement, whenever I don't know what I'm going to do, I quote him for advice and he advises me. They're good guys. I hope it is clear now. Now it's your turn. Let's look at these questions and you can answer them down below in the project section. Questions. Question one, Who is the best person who gave you a piece of advice? Question To, what did your mother advise you to do with an S? Written with an s? What did your friend advise you to do? Again, written with an S pronounced with a zone. A dear friend advise you to do. And question, and question four, what is the worst advice? You ever heard? The worst kind of advice, advice that wasn't helpful, that didn't make any difference. The worst advice that you've ever heard from someone. So that's it, guys. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and will continue in the next lesson. Thank you very much. 12. Weight & Wait: All right, so welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This lesson today is for these two words, weight and weight. The exact same pronunciation, the exact same sound, but different letters and different meanings. Let's look at the first one. The first one is weight w, e, i, g, h, t. We have lots of silent letters. Here's like the G for example, it's silent. I don't pronounce it. So I say weight. And what can you see here in the picture? It looks as if it's like a gym and there are many weights. The weights are the things that you can lift at the gym. Either week something heavy or they make something light. So we call this the weight or the weights. As you can see here. This is also another picture for weight because we all have a certain width, so we can stand on the scales and they tell us how much we weigh or how much is our weight. It could be 607080 kilograms. This is our weight. How heavy a person is? Good. Don't confuse this with the other one, which is weight w a i t. As you can see here in the picture, it's a clock. And the clock tells us all the time. And at the moment it's ten minutes to six o'clock. So there are ten minutes left and it will be six o'clock. So let's say that I leave work at six o'clock. So what do I do in these ten minutes? I just have to wait. Ok. So this word is always related to time. Okay, I'm waiting means I'm hoping something happens in the future. I'm waiting for something to happen. Okay. Another picture here, for example. This is in the street and it says pedestrians push button and wait for signal opposite. So when you have to cross the street, you have to press on a button and you wait until it has green. Once it is green, you are allowed to pass. You're all you're allowed to cross the street. So wait means to be still, do nothing and wait for the future. Wait for something to happen in the future. Very good. So let's look at some examples for weight. The first one, my weight is 80 kilograms. I need to go on a diet to lose weight. I can lift 40 kilograms of weights at the gym. Okay. So as we said, weights are related to how heavy or how light something is. And then this one wait I will wait for him to call me tonight. Are usually wait for the bus at the bus stop. I'm waiting for the bus at the bus stop. I wait for ten minutes, maybe. The reception the receptionist told me to wait for the doctor in the waiting room. She told me to wait there until the doctor is ready. Very good guys. So that's it. I hope you understood the difference between these two worlds. Now it's your turn. As always, you can find these questions in the project section down below. Question one, what are you waiting for in the future? Something that you hope will happen in the future that, and that you are desperately waiting for. Question two, How long do you wait for the bus? Do you wait five minutes, ten minutes. How long do you wait for the bus? Question three, could ask you if you know, for example, how can we lose weight? How can we be lighter people? And question for how much weight do you left at the gym? If you go to the gym, how much weight can you left? So that's everyone. This was our lesson. I hope you enjoyed it and join us in the next lesson where we take more confusing and misused English words. Thank you very much. 13. Rain, Rein, & Reign: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. In this lesson, we're going to be taking these three words, which are rain, rain, and rain. They all have the same transition. They all have the same sounds, but they have different spellings and different meanings. Let's start with the first one. Rain RA. And as you can see here in the picture, it looks as if we have some boots and we have an umbrella and it is raining, meaning there is water coming down from the sky, from the clouds. This is what we call rain. Okay? So this is rain when it's very cold, when it's showering from the sky, we call this rain. Very good. Now don't confuse this word with the other one. Rain, r e i n, which is a totally different meaning. What can you see here in this picture? I can see a man and is on a horse, is riding a horse. And what does he have in his hands? He's holding a rope that can control the horse, right? We call this trope the rains. The rains or the rain rock that controls this forces movement. If it's going to go to the right, go to the left, who forward and stop. We call this the rain. Same transition, but it's a different spelling and different meaning. Very good. Don't confuse it also with this one which has the exact same sound. Rain are EI, G, and the G is silent. I don't pronounce the g sound. And what can I see here in the picture? It looks as if it's like a statue of a king. Write a Cain because he has a Crown over his head. So what do Kings do? They can rule over other people, right? Or they can rule in a certain country. Or they're the ones who control a certain country. So they reign over the country. So to rain means to rule over or to be in control, or to be the king, or to be the queen. Okay? This is what it means to reign over somebody or terrain over something with a G. And the same sound. Good. So let's look at some examples for the first one, rain. We will not go down until the reigning stops. It can be dangerous to drive if it's raining. I'd like to go for walks in the rain as long as I have my umbrella with me. So this was the first one, which we said means water coming down from the sky. Good examples for rain with an E. The rains help you control and maneuver the horse. We said drains are the ropes that help you to control the horses movement. I could also say put on the reins tightly to stop the force. Very good. Now, now examples for the other. Third one, which is rain with a G, a silent G. The king reigned for 15 years. That means he wasn't control or he was the king for 15 years. Queen Elizabeth, the second, reigns over the UK. She reigns over that means she's uncontrolled. She's the queen in the UK. Very good. And now it's your turn guys to answer these questions, which you can find them down in the project section below. What do you like to do when it's raining? Have you ever tried horseback riding? Was it easy to control the horse with the Rene's? Wasn't easy or was at heart. A Question three, who is a king or queen who reigned for many years? And asking a general knowledge question, if you know a king or queen who reigned for many years. So that's everyone. I hope you enjoyed this lesson. Join us in the next lesson where we take more confusing and misused English words. Thank you. 14. Accept & Except: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson. And in this lesson we're going to be discussing these two words that sometimes confuse people. We have except, we have except. Let's listen again. We have Accept and we have except completely different meaning and even different sounds or accept and except we are good. Let's start with the first one, which is accept with an E, except is very easy, basically means to say yes to something or to agree to do something. Like if I can accept an invitation to go to a wedding or to go to a birthday party. And I'm saying Yes, something that I accept, which is a verb as something that I accept is something that I say yes to or I agree to or I allow. This is what I accept. How about the other one? Except as you can see here in the picture, we have a group of cubes on the right as if they are people. And there is a bond on the left, red respond, and it is not included in this. Okay? So all of them are together except for the red one. So except means when I am not including something or I am excluding something. Okay, I could say I love many sports, except for basketball. That means I don't like basketball, so I am excluding it from the group. Ok. So this is the difference. They're quite different in meaning, accept and except totally different meanings. Let's look at some examples for accept, which is to agree or to allow or to say yes to something. I could say. For example, I accepted the new job offer in Madrid. So I accepted it means I said yes, debt. I have sent you an invitation for my birthday party. Please accepted and come please agree. Please say yes and come. Sometimes in life, you just have to accept some bad things happening. This happens in life. Sometimes bad stuff happens. So we just have to accept that. We just have to deal with it. Otherwise. Saying no or being upset about something bad, It's not going to help. So we sometimes just have to accept, you have to say yes, we have to agree with the things, the bad things that happen. Very good. How about some examples for except, which means to exclude something, you're not including it in the group. I could say, for example, I hit all the targets except for the blue one. So I didn't hit the blue one, I could say except for David. Everyone knew about the surprise part. So everyone knew except for David means David did not know. I was good at all subjects at school except for geography. So enjoyed all the subjects and I was good at all subjects. But I wasn't good at geography. Very good. Now it's your turn guys. You'll find these questions down below in the products project section and you can answer them their question one, what was the latest invitation you accepted to go to? What type of invitation was it and why did you accept it? Number two, do you accept strangers in your life? Do you like to accept new strangers? The luck to meet new friends? Do you accept strangers into life? And question three, what is the situation in which everyone knew about something except for you? Everyone knew about something except for you. Maybe it was like a surprise party, for example. Ok guys, so let's say these are some questions you can think about them. And I hope you enjoyed this lesson and I'll see you in the next lesson. Thank you very much. 15. Cue & Queue: Okay, welcome back everyone to common confusing and misused words. This is our new lesson. And in this lesson we are going to be taking these two worlds, q and q. Again, the exact same pronunciation, exact same sound, but different spelling and different meaning. Q and Q. The first one, CU e, q, basically means it's your turn to do something like it's the queue for me to go on a, if it's the cue for me to do something, it's a signal, it's assign. Okay, it's my turn to do something. It's the queue to do the dishes, for example. Okay, so it's my q. That means it's a segment for me to do something. It's my turn now. Very good. And the other one, Q U, E, again pronounced as q, simply means a very long line of people. As you can see here in the picture. There are many people standing in a line. It could be in a queue for going to the sentiment. There could be an ICU for going to something from a shop or in a queue to go to a restaurant. So they are in a very long line, we'll call this q. This is also another picture of Q. Many people standing somewhere. Okay, it's a very long line. We call it long queue. Very good. So this was very simple and very easy. And let's look at some examples for Q CUA. I could say, for example, that's my cue to go. That's my cue to go and do the dishes. My wife, for example, sending a signal. And therefore, I understood this. Q, that's my cue now to go and do the dishes. That's the actors cue for him to go on stage. The actors on stage and is behind stage. And he's waiting for a queue or a certain signal. As soon as he gets the signal, then it says turn, it's his cue to go on stage and perform. I could also say He never misses any cue from his wife and he second and she can give them signals. And how she looks, for example, what she says, anything. So this is a queue or a segment. Or a good examples for the other one. You U E, U E, which is also pronounced a skew. I could say, for example, there is a long queue in front of the restaurant, or the front of that restaurant. We will wait for half an hour. At least. It's a very long queue of people. So they, they also want to go inside the restaurant. But we have to we just have to wait. We're going to wait for half an hour. I could say there were lots of cues at the cinema for the new film. Like for example, when any famous NEW film comes out and it's a blockbusters. So there are many cuz everyone wants to go and see this film. For example. Very good guys. I hope you understood the difference between these two simple words. And now it's your turn. You will find these questions down in the project section. I could ask, have you ever been in a long queue? How long did you wait for us? Okay. What was this? Q4. And how long did you eat? Question two, What is the actor's cue for him to go on stage? How does the actor, nor that it, that it says turn now to go on stage. What's the q? And number three, what is the TV presenters cue for him to start speaking? The TV presenter is sitting in the studio. But how does it know when to start speaking? Something flashes, right? So this is his cue. Very good guys. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and I'll see you in the next lesson. Thank you very much. 16. Main & Mane: Okay, welcome back everyone to confusing, misused English words. We have a new lesson. And in this lesson we are going to be discussing these two words, which are mean and mean. Again, the exact same pronunciation, exactly same sound, but different letters and different meanings. Let's start with the first one, which you probably know. If I say the main thing, that means it's the most important thing or the first thing, or the basic thing. Okay? So what's the most important thing? Like the main reason, the main cause, the main idea, okay? Means the most important one or the basic one, or the one that's really obvious and really clear. Ok, so this is the main idea, the main focus, the main cause, the main reason, that means it's the most important one, or the first one or the most basic one. Very good. How about the other ones? Don't confuse it with this one, which is mean MA and E. What can you see here on the spectrum? I see alliance. And what type of line as it is it female lion or a male lion? It's a male lion. A boy lion, right? And boy lions or may aligns to always have the mean around them. That means they have a lot and a lot of hair. Okay. It looks like a big b here. So it's a lot and a lot of hair. We call this the main, the lions mean. Ok. So this is what distinguishes the male lion from the female line because it has a very large mean. Very good. So let's look at some examples for mean. If I could ask, for example, what is the main dish for today? I'm going to I'm going to a restaurant and I'm asking the weights or what is the main dish? That means what's the main, the main dish, the most important one, the basic one for today. The main reason I can't go with you to the park is that I'm sick. Okay. The main reason means the most important trees and the most obvious or clear reason. Okay? And I could also say this is the main building. If you go into a hotel, for example, or you go into a place that has many buildings. This will always have a main building means the first one, the most important one, the one that has the reception and so on. This is the main building that are good. How about examples for the other one and 0s and 0s? If we shave the lines mean it will look like a lioness. A lioness is a female lion. Order, a girl line. Okay? The lion's mane is a symbol of its strength. The hair of the lion, or the beard or whatever. This is the symbol of the lions. Stress, very good guy. So that's said, I hope you enjoyed it. Now it's your turn. What is the main reason you want to travel? I could ask you, what is the main reason that you want to travel? We have many reasons, but what's the min? I could also ask, what is the main subject that you like? We have many subjects, for example, what is the main one that you like to talk about and discuss study? And I could also ask, what is the color or what color is the lion's mane? Mane has a color. What color is the lion's mane? That's it. I hope you enjoyed this lesson. Everyone.
