About This Class

English Speaking Patterns Mastery is an English course taught by me, Anthony, a native British English speaker. You will learn English patterns at a deep level, so that you can sound more native-like when you speak English.

English patterns are groups of words (phrases) that native English speakers use again and again. If you learn one pattern, you can make hundreds of sentences. Learning these patterns will also improve your overall grammar and sentence structure.

This course includes: 

  • lectures for the target English patterns
  • speaking practicefor every single pattern
  • listening practicefor every single pattern
  • future updates- this course will continue to grow and grow
  • PDF transcripts
  • and MP3 downloadsso that you can learn anywhere, any time.

Each section focuses on one target pattern so that you can master each one and produce it accurately in your spoken English.

If you want to speak English more clearly, if you want to sound more native-like, or if you simply want to take your English to the next level, this course can help you achieve your goal of improving your English.

Transcripts

1. It's clear that... (Learn): the target pattern for this lecture is, it's clear that it's clear that is a very, very common English pattern. Maybe you've heard it before. Let's look at the meaning. First of all, here is an example. This rain isn't going to stop. It's clear that we have to cancel our picnic. So what does it mean? It's clear that this means it's very easy to see that this is true. Basically, it's obvious use this pattern to say that it's easy to see this is true. Everyone knows this is obvious. So when I say the rain isn't going to stop, it's going to keep raining for a long time. Everyone knows that we have to cancel the picnic. So then I can say it's clear that we have to cancel the picnic. I know, you know, and you know, and you know, so that I can say it's clear that we have to cancel the picnic. It's obvious it's easy to see, so this is a very, very common English pattern that we use when we want to state something obvious. Now let's look at an example so you can understand this pattern more deeply. The window is smashed. It's clear that someone broke into our house. In this example. Someone has gone home and seen that one of the windows is broken. It's smashed. So they're saying, What is the obvious thing that we can conclude? What can we obviously think about this situation? Well, someone broke into the house, a burglar, a robber broken and stole something So we can say it's clear that someone broke into the house. It's obvious everyone can see and everyone knows this is true. It's clear that someone broke into the house. Let's look at another example. John is such a great father. Yeah, it's clear that he loves his daughter, said. These two people are talking about someone called John, and they're saying he's a great father. He loves his daughter very, very much. And the second, Parsons said, it's clear that he loves his daughter. This means it's very easy to see. Everyone knows that he loves his daughter. Maybe he hugs her a lot, kisses her, brings her out, cares for her. So that means everyone can easily see that he loves his daughter. It's clear to see let's look at one more example. Now my Spanish is terrible. It's clear that I'll never become fluent, So this person is criticizing themselves. They're saying my Spanish is really bad. They're trying to learn, but they're not very good at Spanish, so they're saying to themselves, It's clear that I'll never be fluent It's easy to see that I'll never become a good Spanish speaker because my Spanish is so bad. You see, so we can sometimes use this pattern to criticize ourselves. It's clear that this is not going to happen, or it's clear that that is not going to be done. So when we want to say something negative, this is very often used now. What's the structure for this particular pattern? Let's have a look to the structure is it's clear that plus a name or a pronoun plus verb, for example, it's clear that someone broke into our house, so that's the meaning and the structure. I hope your understanding has gone up a level. Now move on to the listening on speaking practice exercises to take your understanding even further, both in terms of the structure. Andi, the meaning. Listen a lot. Practice the speaking exercises and you'll start to ingrained this pattern in your brain. See you in the next lecture 2. It's clear that...
