Here are other ways to say similar ways to say the situation is difficult. You could say the circumstances are hard, right? The situation is problematic. Uh, so maybe this situation causes stress and makes us upset. Let's see, let's do some pronunciation. First pronunciation of the night. Repeat after me. It's so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. Now I can't say I agree with this guy because I love my hair cut, but it was good for the conversation. So he says, It's so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. All right, Okay, so here are other ways to say it's hard to be brave, just like the soldier down here. He's like it's hard to be brave. And in the conversation, he said, to be brave when you get a bad haircut, it's hard to people rave when you get a bad haircut or it's difficult to be courageous. It's demanding to be audacious who, all right, so all of these are similar ways. I can't say they're exactly the same, but they're quite similar to It's hard to be brave. If you keep a stiff upper lip than you control your problems. Reactions make up. 2. Lesson Information: green dot Which let me Ah ha! We're alive. Who? Wonderful. Okay, so welcome everyone to this lesson. And yes. Oh, we're gonna have a good time today. We're going to use the idiom. Keep a stiff upper lip. We're going to use the conversation. Mm. So I think it's a good time to check out. What are we going to study today? We're going to watch a conversation conversation over there. We're gonna analyze this conversation. We're gonna talk about phrases and vocabulary in this conversation. Make sure you guys understand everything. We're going to use pictures who help, understand?

Someone's in the Commons ceremony. Oh, hello and welcome. Oh, lots of apples. So tasty, Okay? 3. Watch a Conversation: I think the first thing we need to do is watch the conversation, but with sound so we can hear them talk. So here we go. Let's watch the conversation all the way through em. I know the situation is difficult, but you need to keep a stiff upper lip. It's so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. I know I cried like a baby the last time they cut my hair too short. I remember you were able to keep a stiff upper lip and move forward. You're right. I was able to keep my emotions in control. Oh, your hair is so beautiful. I feel so ugly. Don't worry. Your hair will grow back. What would you do if your hair was a shortest mine, Okay. 4. Explore Vocabulary & Phrases Part 1: and we're going to jump right in, get started. And I think we're gonna break this conversation apart. Make sure we understand what's going on. Okay, so the first section, just to make sure if you guys have comments or if you will have a question or you want to talk about something, let me know in the chat, in the comments, we can talk about it. Here we go. This is the first section I know the situation is difficult, but you need to keep a stiff upper lip. Uh huh. I know the situation. It is difficult. All right, so in this picture we have a guy. I think it's a guy who is trying to solve a Rubik's Cube. It's like a puzzle. You have to get all of the same colors on one side, and all of the sides have to have only one color. So this situation may be difficult. There are other ways to say similar ways to say the situation is difficult. You could say the circumstances are hard, right? You could say the situation is burdensome. It's another way to say difficult. All right. We could say the situation is demanding all right, So it's not easy. It's making us work. We've got to get some stuff done. The situation is exhausting. It's difficulty and it makes us tired. Maybe physically or emotionally, the situation is problematic. Uh, so maybe this situation causes stress and makes us upset the circumstances. Our arduous uh huh. So arduous is similar to difficult. It's not as commonly used, but it's common enough. Let's see. Let's do some pronunciation. First pronunciation of the night. Repeat after me. The situation is difficult. The circumstances are hard, the situation is burdensome. The situation is demanding, The situation is exhausting, the situation is problematic and the circumstances are arduous. Okay, right, So let's see. This type of burdensome means is difficult inside the word. Burdensome. We have the word burden. So let's see if someone is has to go really far and they're carrying a lot of weight on their back. We said they they have a heavy burden, or maybe the horse or the donkey is carrying stuff, and there have so much on their back. It's a heavy burden, right? So you could say the situation is burdensome. It's difficult. It's hard. All right, We have someone in the comments. Hugo. OK, welcome. All right, so all of these are different ways to say the situation is difficult. They're similar, but each one has a little bit of difference to them. Like demanding could actually be something That's good, right? It makes us better. Maybe you make us more skillful, more able to do something exhausting. If something is exhausting, it kind of has a negative feel to it because it makes you tired physically and probably emotionally. You're like, Ah, it's so exhausting. I don't look forward to that at all. Problematic is, you know, there's a problem in there. There's stress. Things were not going so well. So something is problematic and circumstances are very similar to the situation. It's what's happening, what's going on. So if the circumstances are arduous, it's just another way to say difficult, right? Okay, so let's continue forward in the conversation. And if you have other, if you guys have other ways to say the sentence is up top with the phrases on top, let me know in the comments. Okay. All right. Here we go. Oh, uh, yes. We're going to stay right here. Will repeat this part because she says the idiom, and we need to make sure that we understand the idiom. Here we go. Situation is difficult, but you need to keep a stiff upper lip, huh? Keep a stiff upper lip. Hmm? Let's see. Here are other ways to say Keep a stiff upper lip. This is an idiom, and it's pretty common. So it's good to know what it means and here or other ways that the other ways to say this idiom don't show that you are upset that see, don't let your emotions control your reactions. Be courageous. Well, when something bad happens, be brave when it all goes from Ah Mahn, Saleh says. To control your anger right? And it could be anger. It could be sadness. It could be maybe happiness that could be going crazy. But it's being able to choose your reactions, right? So let's see. Ceremonies says the situation has no solves. Situation has no solution. Maybe it's what you're looking for. And I believe that's what you're talking about when the situation is difficult, right? All right, so here we go keep a stiff upper lip. Don't show that you are upset now. Upset. Could be maybe really sad. Maybe you're really angry. Maybe you're just pissed off. But if you keep a stiff upper lip, you don't let people know exactly how you feel, right? You don't show your emotions. Don't let your emotions control your reactions about your reaction. Is your response to a situation where there's something good happens or something bad happens? Your reaction to it is how you respond. It's your action, right? It could also be a lack of action, right? Instead of going crazy and screaming, you could maybe be quiet and just gonna force your mouth to be quite Tisha. All right, so the 1st 2 of they say, Don't do something right. So don't do that. Don't show your upset. Don't let your emotions control you. These are more positive, assertive ones telling you to do something right. Be courageous when something bad happens, be brave when it all goes wrong. When you think life is wonderful and all of a sudden something just happens and it all goes wrong, Right, Sir, Mo says, Be calm and keep your emotions. Keep control of your emotions, right? So when they say stiff upper lip, the word stiff just means, like, hard, not easy to bend or not Easy to move, and this would be your upper lip. And if you keep a stiff upper lipped idea is that you're not talking, you're not. You're not yelling. You're not screaming. You're not crying and showing a whole bunch of emotion. So you're keeping a stiff upper lip. You're not showing that you are upset. Okay? Ah, Hugo cases bottle up your feelings that similar that is similar. And when you say bottle up your feelings, sometimes people will see that as a negative thing. And it depends Depends we need. We need more information. But sometimes people will say, Aw, you bottle up your feelings too much And that would mean that you try not to show any emotion ever at all. You're like a robot. I do not show emotion, right? And if you do that too much, if you hide your emotions too much, then that's not good either, right? Especially if you have family and you have kids and you're like a robot and low child. Hello, wife. And you never show emotions you bottle up to keep your emotions inside. That's not good either. right. It was kind of a balance we have to find in this picture. We have a lady and she's wearing a mask, but just a mass that covers her eyes. And the idea why I picked this picture is because she's kind of hiding, uh, the emotions that she has, and she's using a mask to kind of cover it right. It looks like there are hands that are holding the mask over her eyes and her lips. Mr Very even Simple face, not showing a lot of emotion or what she is thinking or feeling. OK, all right, so let's keep going in the conversation. It's so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. Now, I can't say I agree with this guy because I love my hair cut, but it was good for the conversation. So, he says, is so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. All right, so you guys help me out. Can you think of other ways in English to say it's hard to be brave and the picture is of a soldier? And I guess he's running away right? Maybe there was a battle or something. he wants out of there. He wants to get away. He does not want to be brave. He wants to survive. Okay, so here or other ways to say it's hard to be brave, huh? In the comments, we have Rock God, ragged hat. I think I've saying that, Correct. And if I'm not mistaken, I think you went live with me yesterday. Hmm, interesting. Perhaps it could just be someone with the same name, but hello, Rock had. And welcome. Okay, so here are other ways to say it's hard to be brave, just like the soldier down here. He's like, it's hard to be brave. And in the conversation, he said to be brave when you get a bad haircut, it's hard to people rave when you get a bad haircut or it's difficult to be courageous. Ah, right, Amman Saleh says. Not easy to get courage, not easy to have courage or be courageous, right? It's difficult to be courageous, Rock, I says. Yes, it's me, all right. I thought I recognized your name. Welcome. All right, let's see. You could also say it's hard to be fearless. Mm, it's onerous. Not a common word, but we'll talk about this one. It's onerous to be lionhearted lionhearted. It's tiring to be heroic. It's demanding to be audacious Who, All right? So all of these are similar ways. I can't say they're exactly the same, but they're quite similar to It's hard to be brave, all right, so let's do some pronunciation. It's great to do pronunciation. Repeat after me and I will pause and give you time before I go to the next one. Repeat. It's hard to be brave. It's difficult to be courageous. It's hard to be fearless. It's onerous to be lionhearted. It's tiring to be heroic, and it's demanding to be audacious. Okay, we just adjust my microphone one second, all right. Okay, so these air, like I said, all similar ways to say it's hard to be brave. Brave is very similar to courageous, I think. In the comment, Amman, Salah said. It's not easy to have current right, So courage, courageous, brave. It's hard to be fearless. It's difficult to be fearless and fearless. Just think fearless is without fear. So you're brave well, and the other thing about correct courage and courageous people is that I think they do. They are scared of things, but what they do is they move forward even though they are afraid of something. So, like this soldier, he might be free. You might be freaking out and scared, and he runs away. Another soldier might be scared, just a scared, but he decided to go forward instead. So that would be brave and courageous. Alright, it's onerous to be lionhearted, and I wouldn't hear this use that much. I put it in here because it's just another way. To see this phrase appear onerous is another way to say difficult. It's hard, it's too much work. It's stressful. It's just exhausting. Right and Lionhearted is like the SEPA was in Robin Hood. This story Richard the Lionheart, the Brave King or night from the England. So the idea is that you have a heart like a lion. You're very brave, your courageous, your fearless, your heroic All right. It's tiring to be heroic. It takes a lot of energy to be hero is difficult, and it's demanding to be audacious. Audacious is like bold right, so we could say bold equals id a cious. You're ready to take action, right? And people that take a lot of action. They need a lot of energy, right? And sometimes they get tired. But then if they're courageous and fearless, they keep going. Right. Okay. All right. So let's keep going. In the conversation on the conversation, he's talking about his hair cut. I like his haircut. I think it is wonderful, but we need to keep moving. Moving forward. Here we go When you get a bad haircut. I know I cried like a baby the last time they cut my hair too short. Uh, I know I cry like a baby the last time they cut my hair too short. Well, I say we have a comment last carry out of media says, I think they have given up trying to be courageous. Yeah, I guess so. So I cried like a baby. Let's see here other ways to say Cried like a baby. And let's just talk about the picture first when I see a picture like this, a little baby, I'm like, Ah, I want to pick up the baby, right? I want to make looks like a think if she a little girl and, like OC console her and tried to make her feel better. All What's wrong? It'll be okay. Are you hungry? Do you have a dirty diaper? OK, But in the conversation when she says I cried like a baby, it means other ways to say that you could say, uh to show. I shed tears like a little baby. I sobbed like a newborn baby Newborn. Alright. I sobbed like a newborn baby. I wailed like a little kid. I cried my eyes out and I wept like a baby. Okay, so when we're talking about cried here we're talking about, you know, tears coming down your face. Oh, it's just so bad, right? When your hair when they cut your hair too short. Ah, Okay. So on the 1st 1 I shed tears, shed tears shed means to get rid of something like, uh let's see. Ah, snake was shed their skin. When this the skin on the snake is too old, it sheds the skin, it comes off, it gets rid of it. So if you shed tears, it's crying because your body is getting rid of the tears. So I shed tears like a little baby. I I sobbed like a newborn baby and sobbed is like crying, but extra sobs like whom? It's like the extra that just keeps going and going and going, and it's almost uncontrollable. You can't stop crying. So, um, I wailed. I wailed like a little kid. All right, I'm not going to try to make the noise, but if you ever hear a little kid who is either maybe they got hurt really bad or they felt fell in their bike. But they have a lot of pain right now when they hurt and they start wailing to screaming really loud for their mom or their dad or their parents. I heard so bad they're wailing. There is probably a mix of crying and screaming at the same time because their situation is very painful. Right then we can just say I cried my eyes out and you cried your eyes out. It can't just be a sane. Maybe you didn't really cry, but you're trying to communicate that the situation was very stressful for you and very difficult. So, uh, the movie was so sad, I cried my eyes out. Maybe you really did cry. Or maybe it just made you feel so sad that you know, Oh, just one of those movies that just grabs your heart. It makes you feel like just crying your eyes out. See, Bhaskar, yard of media says, crying in a high pitch. Right? Wailing, Yes. I'm not going to try to make the noise. Yes, it's pretty loud, I would say a mix of crying and crying and screaming mixed together. Right. And I wept like a baby and wept. Is past tense of the verb to weep, right? So to weep equals to cry and equals to shed tears. No, they're very similar. You know, You have little what water coming out of your eyes and your crying. Right. Okay, so these are all similar ways to say I cried like a baby. And I think people add like a baby at the end because a baby doesn't really have control over their their ability to cry. It's just it's their only way to communicate. Right? So when they cry, they really cry. They really let you know. Okay. All right. So if you describe the situation, you say I cried like a baby, that situation was very difficult for you. Okay, So at one time, they cut her hair short, too. And she cried like a baby. Oh, let's Well, yes, Let's move forward. Here we go. As time they cut my hair too short. I remember you were able to keep a stiff upper lip and move forward. Right. You were able to keep a stiff upper lip or in other words, like we just did. You were able to not show that you were upset. You were able to not let your emotions control your reactions. You were able to be courageous when something that happened, you were able to be brave when it all went wrong. When you mess with our hair, I cried like a baby. Okay. All right. So we're talking about I remember you were able to keep a stiff upper lip. You were able to control your emotions and move forward. But we're gonna talk about this short sentence. You moved forward, all right. And in the comments, if you have other ways that you think are similar to you, move forward. Please let me know. I remember last class. You guys were seeing my answers before I could even put them on the screen. That's great. Okay. I like competition. Okay, So here are other ways to say you moved forward. You could say you kept going. You kept going or talking about action. You kept taking action. You kept advancing. That's right. You advanced. We're talking about the past tense here because it already happened in the conversation. I remember you were able to keep a stiff upper lip and move forward. So you were able. It already happened. So you advanced. You proceeded. Onward. Ah, Rock had says you developed. Yes. Yes. That's even a deeper meaning than what I have you moved forward. Could just being that you're like, Oh, I don't like short hair, but I will live with it and I can move forward. What rock had said you developed. That means you learned from it. You probably grew into a better person. You improved, right? Nice one. Rock had way to go. All right. You made progress, right? Maybe like a trip. Think of like a trip or you need to go somewhere. And you made progress. You moved forward. You made headway and you pushed onward. All right. I like all of these because they show pretty good energy. And even though the situation is difficult. By golly, we're moving forward. Were advancing. Were keep. We're going to keep going. Uh huh. Rockets said you made a movement, huh? And hopefully it could. Well, yes, it could be a different depends. What kind of movement did you sit down? Sitting down would be a movement. Did you stand up? Did you run forward? Did you make a new appointment to get a different hairstyle? Don't know. All right, so let's do a little bit of pronunciation. Repeat after me. I will pause so that, uh I can't wait for you to move before I moved to the next one. Here we go. Repeat out loud. And if you're doing pronunciation, give me some apples in the comments and let me know is it lets me know that you're participating. Okay. Repeat after me. You moved forward. You kept going. You advanced. You proceeded. Onward. You made progress. You made headway. You pushed onward. Okay, so I see apples in the comments. That's great. That means you guys are doing pronunciation and working on your pronunciation with me. That's wonderful. Okay, so let me talk about this one. You proceeded onward onward is similar. to forward, right? It's movement in the direction that you need to go to make progress, to develop, to moving, Probably the right direction. The onward and proceeded to proceed is to go to do something to move forward, right? You didn't just sit there and pick your nose or scratch your head. You took action, right? You proceeded Onward. Okay, uh, when you sit, when I hear this one, you made headway. It makes me think of maybe a ship in a storm on a very, very stormy sea. And it's very difficult for the ship to go forward because the wind is blowing in front of them. The waves are huge and the waves are crashing into the ship, and it's difficult for them to make progress is difficult for them to move forward. So when I hear this, you made headway, is that maybe the ship had a difficult storm, but they were focused and they kept their sales up and they were working together, and they were able to reach their goal or move towards their goal. Right. Okay. All right. I see more apples. Mm. Tasty apples. Okay, so these are all similar ways to say you moved forward, right? All right, it's back up just a little bit and Oh, wait, I can't do more of the conversation because it's quiz time, right? 5. Quiz #1 & Review: It's quiz time, right? We have two quizzes today. This is the 1st 1 Which means I need to put on my glasses. The glass is really have no effect whatsoever. But maybe it makes me look more like a serious teacher. Get in your seats. Sit down. Be quiet. We're taking a quiz. Maybe not. Okay, so here's the quiz. Let's see if you guys were listening. Well, we did the first part of the conversation. We'll pop quiz. Surprised. Okay, here we go. Question number one. Something that is difficult is usually burdensome, extraordinary or unimaginative. Mm. Here comes the music. Let me know in the comments. What is your choice? You can put 123 Or you can spell the whole word That's up to you or ABC, right? Here we go. Let me know what you think. - Okay ? I probably like that music too much, but OK, here we go. Let's see. Something that is difficult is usually ha burdensome, right? The answer is burdensome. And I will come back and talk about the correct answer and the incorrect answers after we get through this first quiz. All right. Excuse me. So right now it's on to question number 20 yeah. If you keep a stiff upper lip than you control your problems, reactions, makeup hears your music. - Okay , Uh, I have to stop sometime, even though I like the music. Okay. Excuse me. If you keep a stiff upper lip, you control your reactions. All right? We'll talk about it in a moment. But first, we need to get to question number three. What was so bad that the man couldn't be brave? His attitude, his relationship or his hair cut? All right, here's your music. Okay, So what was so bad that the man couldn't be brave? And the answer is his hair cut. And I know they said it was bad, but I tell you, I think is his haircut was beautiful. This Oh, so nice. So a nice. OK, so that was the first quiz. But like I said before now we're going to go back and make sure that we understand the answers and the incorrect answers. I think it's good to talk about the incorrect answers as well, because there might be something we don't understand. All right, Something. This is question number one. Something that is difficult is usually burdensome. Right? So let's see where we are. Ah ha. This is where was the situation is difficult, right? And the example. Number two, the 2nd 1 The situation is burdensome, right? It just means hard difficulty may be demanding, exhausting, but it takes a lot of energy to get through it. All right, so that's why the answer is B is a for burdensome right? Question number two, If you keep a stiff upper lip than you control your you have power over your reactions. Right? And we talked a boat. The idiom I love idioms. Keep a stiff upper lip, right? Till don't let your emotions control your reaction right. Instead, you're controlling your reactions. You're the one who decides what happens. Right? Okay, So that was the answer to keep a stiff upper lip than you. Control your reactions. And for number three, Yeah. What was so bad that the men couldn't be brave? His hair cut was so bad. Right? And if we look in the, uh uh, it's in the conversation and go, it's will play it. It's so hard to be brave when you get a bad haircut. Yeah, So that was What was so bad. It wasn't his attitude. It wasn't his relationship. It was his hair cut. Okay, And let's see, um, the other incorrect answers. I'm just taking a look. See if there's anything worse explaining attitude. You know how you feel. Good, bad. Something in between your relationship, how you interact with people, uh, problems. Things that are wrong. Makeup has doesn't make any sense, lipstick or eye liner or whatever make up stuff like that. All right, so burdensome was the answer. Extraordinary means extra ordinary, right? So it's not just normal. It's extraordinary. It's incredible and unimaginative. This is a simple one is not imaginative, so it means your imagination. Sorry to be rude, but if you're unimaginative, your imagination kind of sucks. It's that you can't think of outside the box. Maybe they say you can't think of extra things by yourself. So you have no imagination or a week imagination. Okay, 6. Explore Vocabulary & Phrases Part 2: and I think it's time to move forward in the conversation. Let's see where we left off. All right? We did. You moved forward before, and now we're going to move forward in the conversation. Mm. All right, here we go. So let's do it. I got to read the comment. The worst haircut, Rock God says the worst haircut is when you get your bangs cut. Uneven. Oh, I got to take my glasses off because the quiz is over. So no more strict teacher, right? All right. The worst haircut is when you get your bangs cut uneven. Yes, yes. And I'm going to guess this is more of an issue for women. I guess it's possible some men have longer hair, but in case you're not sure, Bangsar, this part of the hair that comes down right here so you could say I have no bangs, right?

Still, uh, yeah, all of these other ways to say your hair is so beautiful. One of the bottom is like a really nice compliment, like, really nice, because your hair is heavenly or we could even make it even more so heavenly. So whether or not you believe in heaven and hell, if you're religious or not, it's not really a big deal. The idea is that if someone describes something as being heavenly, it's like, ha, it's incredible, right? It's just really, really, really, really nice. Papa Metta says I catchy. I think you mean eye catching. And I'm gonna put that in the comments I catching right. So it's like you're walking pass and also oh, you do a double take.

Uh, All right, we'll delete that one. All right. Your hair is very eye catching, right? Like it catches your eyes like a net. Like your fishing or something, and it catches your eyes. It attracts your attention. All right. Okay. Right. You guys did great in the comments. Let's move forward in the conversation. Repeat this and will move to the next part. Here we go. Your hair is so beautiful. I feel so ugly. And one last thing before I move forward. The ladies hair, right. She has her eyes closed. It looks like she just kind of maybe meditating or pausing for a moment in silence. And there's probably wind around her and is blowing her hair in the wind. And someone took a picture of her and someone maybe thinks Wow, your hair is very eye catching. It's incredible. This wonderful is beautiful. All right, so let's go to the next section. Here we go. Don't worry. Your hair will grow back. Yes, eso here or other ways to say Don't worry, right? So this lady is worrying. He's worrying like crazy, but we're seeing and and put the X No worry. Don't worry. All right? Right. See? Here we go. Don't worry. Here, Other ways. Ah, Rocket says your hair is exquisite. Yes, Exquisite. It's, like very high quality. Incredibly great quality and wonderful. Yes. All right, don't worry. Ah ha. Papo Metta says, Be optimistic. Who? I like that one. Yes, we could also say it's all right, right? I didn't. Don't worry, because in the conversation she's talking to the guy on the phone and he's upset because he feels like his hair so ugly. And she's trying to console him. She's trying to make him feel better and kind of make him relax. Oh, don't worry. Don't worry. It's all right. You could also say it will be all right. Huh? Okay. Lets see. Uh, these things happen, right? And so if someone says, Ah, my hair is horrible. They just came. They cut my hair. It was terrible. And I've cried like a baby. Someone might say, Aw, you know, these things happen trying to show you sympathy. You're trying to make you understand that they feel your pain, whether it has happened to them before. Maybe they just understand your your stress. These things happen, right? Papa? Metta says not to worry. Things will turn out right, as in not toe worry. Things will get better. All right. You could also say There, there. All right. Very simple. Let's say someone is crying. Something really just happened to them. And someone puts their hand on their shoulder and they kind of a kind of tap it. And they say, There, there, there, there it will be. Okay, Don't worry. It's all right. These things happen. We're trying to make people feel better. Okay? Things will look up soon, Right now, when you say this, you're trying to make that person kind of look into the future and not be stuck right now that things were so terrible, though things will look up. Look up soon. No. When he says I I feel so ugly. You know, things will look up soon. Things will get better. All right. You see, Papa Metta says there is something you can't change. Uh, see, rock had says, who cares, Right? That is a possible answer. And sometimes it works well with people that complain and complain and complain and never stop complaining. Maybe something happens in their life, no matter what it is. Oh, I'm a victim. Oh, things there so bad. And eventually people are just going to say, who cares? And they don't want to give you all this sympathy because you just suck up people's energy . Okay. All right. But in this one, the girl is trying to make the man feel a little bit better. Okay, so things will look up soon. You could also say, tear up. I hope you feel better. Get well. Things will be better. All right. And don't let it get you down. And here we're kind of talking about negative energy, right? So if you got a horrible haircut, you just like I can't go to work. I can't show other people how bad my hair is. And someone says, Ah, don't let it get you down, You know, don't worry. There there, things will look up. Things will get better. You could do it right? And these air kind of things that you would probably say two people that you like, right? Like rock had said. She says, Who cares? You would probably say, Who cares to someone that you don't like? Or someone that is really annoying you. Right. But in this situation, these are all similar to Don't worry, the words are quite different. But the similar idea is that, you know, relax. It will be okay. And you wouldn't show and scream them. You talk in a calm way and try to make someone feel better. See part. Momenta says time heals everything, right? Right. So over time things will get better, right? Okay, So these air other ways to say Don't worry. And if we describe the lady down here, let me move the read thing out of the way. She is just like I would say, Overwhelmed. She has her hand on her head. She has her hand out like stop. I can't take any more bad energy. Uh, get it away. And so someone whose her friend might say, Oh, don't worry. These things happen right there. There. Things will look up soon to Europe, right? And then yeah, so don't worry. OK, so these are other ways to say, Don't worry. And it's a way to share positive energy to someone or with someone when they have really negative energy or something bad happened. All right, so let's go forward. Next section, your hair will grow back. What would you do if your hair was a shortest mine? Okay, so this is kind of a longer question. What would you do if your hair was as shortest mine? So I'm gonna give you other ways to say the first part of the question. What would you do?

All right, so these are all similar ways to, uh, stay the question or the first part of the question. What would you do? We're trying to figure out what action will this person take? All right, though. All of these can be short sentences by themselves. What would your answer be to this situation? How would you respond? What actions would you take? Stuff like that?

We're kind of guessing we're talking about what we might do, What perhaps might happen. All right, so that's one set of answers. Rocket says I would wear a wing. I say Papa Mehta isn't possible to get yourself inside home for six months. Is it possible to stay in your house or inside your home for six months? Maybe. Maybe the person is exaggerating. They're making it sound like it's worse than it actually is. Uh, and if they just said, you know, I will stay home for two hours. People be like, Okay, Yeah, but if you say, Oh, I'm going to stay home for six months and people would think, Wow, your hair must be really horrible. And if you notice in the conversation there, talking on the phone, right, and they're not doing a video call, so he she can't see what his hair looks like.

After saying her hair was beautiful, the man said he felt so ugly, right? This was in the conversation. Let's see if we can find it. Ah! Ah, here it is. Oh, your hair is so beautiful. I feel so ugly, right? So after he said her hair was beautiful, your hair is so beautiful. He said he felt I feel so ugly. So the answer is so ugly. The other answers, uh, so ashamed now he didn't say that. And ashamed means you feel bad about something that happened, right? You regret it. Eso frustrated. He didn't say that, But frustrated means that you're upset about something because it's difficult. It's a big challenge and you just can't move forward and you feel are stressed out and frustrated.

Let's take a look. Where did we study that we studied that the last section? Uh huh. Here it is similar to don't worry, right? If something happens and they're your friend, maybe someone that you enjoy and something bad happens to them, you try to make them feel better. You might say, Don't worry. But you also might say, There, there it's in. No, it's OK. There, there. So in the come in, the question the answer was there. There, uh, over there. No, over there is incorrect. And we're not talking about something located over there. And we don't say here here either. It's They're there.

What would you do if your hair was a shortest mine? She was shocked, right? She's like, surprised. Plus scared, right? The next closest answer would be she was fearful. But it doesn't quite work, cause I don't think she is scared so much that something's gonna hurt her. Or that she's gonna have a big problem because it didn't happen to her. And she's just thinking About what? How would she react if it did happen? So her response was shocked when we could see here. She has bake exclamation marks over her head, meaning she's shocked. She's full of surprise and, uh, right. Okay, so she was shocked. She was not cheerful. Cheerful would be like she was happy. It was glad that it happened, but not so much. And she wasn't scared. She was shocked, like Oh, my goodness. I can't imagine what would happen if my if I had a bad haircut. Okay, so that was the end of the quiz, right? 8. Review & Conclusion: Let's talk a boat.
