About This Class

Hi there, my name is Shervin. In this class, I will be teaching you new and essential English Vocabulary in order to improve your ability to speak and write in English.

Is English your 2nd language? Do you wish you had a broader vocabulary? Do you have the feeling that there are too many words that you still don't know for speaking or writing in English? In this class, I have gathered the most essential and important vocabulary that every English speaker must know, and I will help you learn them with ease.

You will be provided an in-depth explanation of every new word, including relevant examples that help you understand how each word is used. We will discuss if the new word that we just learned together requires specific connective words or if it is only used in certain contexts; this will help you understand how to use these new words yourself, so that you will be truly expanding your vocabulary, rather than just understanding what a bunch of words mean.

By the end of this class, you will have learned a ton of new and essential words, and most importantly, you will know how to use them in your own speaking and writing.

1. Intro to English Vocabulary: Hi guys, Welcome to the English vocabulary. Of course, super excited to have you here together, we're going to learn a lot of essential words that is going to improve your English vocabulary and it's going to make you a lot more proficient when it comes to your understanding of the English language. So we're going to cover a lot of important words that are used a lot in English conversations or just in any sort of written or spoken format. And what we're gonna do is we're going to cover the words that are not the easiest ones that everybody knows about once you learn English. But the ones that are a little bit tougher, a little bit more unique, little more interesting. But there's still very useful, right? So you're going to be hearing these a lot from different people in different contexts, whether formal or informal contexts, you might hear a lot of these. So it's very important that we learn these and we start incorporating them into our own understanding language. So we're going to start with the first lesson. And in each lesson we covered 12 words. Okay, so that's a 12 words per lesson that we're going to have. And at the end of each week, review a little bit. Then we go to the next lesson. And the way you should go through this course is really dependent on you want to go. You can go faster if you want, you can go slower if you wanted. Really depends on how you want to pace yourself, right? Because some people, they can handled learning a lot of words at the same time and they can't remember all of them. But for some others, they might want to pace it out a little bit more so they can remember what they're learning, right? So if you want to do maybe a couple of words a day, that's totally fine. If you want to watch one lesson and then watch the next lesson, the next day, that's totally fine too. And some people might be like, Oh, I just wanted to do one word per day, which is also fine. Like if you want to just stretch it out, learn one new word a day and make sure that you're actually learning and actually know how to use it and what it actually means. And that's great too, right? Whatever works for you. One thing that I would suggest though, is try not to do more than one entire lesson per sitting, right? Because I feel 12 words is kinda enough because a lot of these words are going to be new words for you, I'm guessing at least. And if you learn a lot of new words at the same time, it just going to be a lot harder to remember what every single one of them meant and how you use them and the examples of them, it's just going to be a lot tougher, right? So I would recommend, even if you are someone who's like, you know what, I can take it, I can learn a lot of new words at the same time, I would still recommend not going more than 10 or 12 words at the same time. Okay, So maybe just learned an entire lesson. Let it sit. Just think about it a little review at once or twice. And then the next time you sit down to watch the rest of the course, you can watch the next lesson, right? Like the course is not going anywhere. You have it, it's there for you. You can watch it anytime you want. So I would suggest pacing it a little bit so that all the new words that you learn don't escape your memory and they actually stick where you're learning them. All right, so without further ado, we're going to jump right into the first lesson. So join me in the next one. 2. Abandon - Lesson 1, Word 1: Are you guys the first word that we're going to cover together is abandoned. Now abandoned means to leave without planning on coming back or quitting. Essentially, when you use the word abandon, You're referring to someone or something being left without ever coming back. For example, I abandoned my job. What does that mean? When you say I abandoned my job, it means that I basically quit, right? I left my job and I don't want to go back to it at all. And I'm going to go after something else. You might hear the term abandoned ship a lot as well. Abandon ship also kinda versus the same thing like when you're abandoning ship, that means you're just leaving something that is pretty much failing, right? And it's actually the word abandoned is used a lot in the same context. It's just what you're leaving something and you don't plan on going back. Okay, so try using it, try formulating sentences with it. I just formed an example. I will just form another example for you. I didn't want to abandon my family for Thanksgiving, right? So basically we're saying for Thanksgiving you want it to be with your family. You didn't want to abandon them, right. But let's say you got a call from work. They asked you to go into the office and you're like, No, I don't want to abandon my family for Thanksgiving dinner, right. Because it's Thanksgiving. I want to be around my family and I want to enjoy their presence. And I don't want to abandon them, right? So I challenge you to also form an example. See if you can form an example with the word abandon so that you fully grasp the meaning of it. Means to leave something without planning on going back. 3. Keen - Lesson 1, Word 2: Our next word is keen. Now keen needs to be very eager about something. For example, I was keen on getting my promotion, right. You're essentially saying I was really invested and I really wanted my promotion for happen. I was so keen on it, right? Essentially, anytime you use the word king, you're implying some sort of sensitivity, so sort of intensity. And you're saying that I was very eager about that, something, right? For example, my brother was keen on getting a brand new car for Christmas, right? So he was really eager to do it. He really wanted it to happen. You like his intensity was palpable, right? So that's essentially what you're implying with the word key. And you use it a lot of different contexts. You can say this worsen most keen and that person was keen and you usually say it with the word oncoming out the words. So you say, I was keen on this thing happening or they were keen on doing this thing. Right? So you don't say I was keen about this. You say I was keen on this. I was keen on getting my promotion or he was keen on successfully finishing his task, for example, right? So you use keen and if you want to use a connective word with the US on 4. Jealous - Lesson 1, Word 3: Our next word is a common, super common word. It's called jealous. Jealous essentially means when you want what someone else has, right? So let's say you're jealous of someone else because they have an exit card. When you write, essentially you are saying, I really want what they have. I don't want what I have, I want what they have, or I really want what my neighbor is earning fear, right? So I'm really jealous of his income. All right, So you are jealous of something that's very important. That connective word that comes with jealous is being jealous off. You're either Joseph, someone, are you jealous of something, right? And anytime you are jealous of something, it's essentially you saying, I really want that thing over what I have and I wish I had that then. You really bitter about you're like, Why don't I have that, right? This is the worst thing ever, right? So that's what jealous means. 5. Tact - Lesson 1, Word 4: Our next word is tacked. Now tak means the ability to say the right thing, right? And the way you use it as by saying you use tact or they use tag, or this guy really knows how to use tact, right? So the word and use is a helping word that comes with the word tag. So for example, you want to say, I'm always able to say the right thing. That's how I get out of things, right? How would I phrase that? I would say, I really know how to get out of bad situation because I know how to use tack. Or you can say, my aunt always uses cat to get out of bad situations. All right, so essentially you say I am using Taq. So think of it as using some sort of a tool that helps you do whatever you want to do, right? And tack this essentially that tack this a tool and the tool, What is a tool? It's the ability to say the right thing. Because think about it. Saying the right thing is actually quite difficult, right? So whenever you're in a bad situation, saying the right thing can't be really tough because you really don't know how to phrase it without hurting, but other people's feelings and stuff like that. So saying the right thing is actually quite a skillful thing to do, and that's how we say it. That's how we refer to it. We say using tact. 6. Oath - Lesson 1, Word 5: Next word is oath. Now, oath is a promise that something is true, right? And it can be used in a lot of different contexts. You can just say, hey, this is an oath. I did not screw this up, for example, or this is an oath. I am going to do this task properly. You use it like that and that's perfectly fine, but it's used on a lot of different contexts as well. For example, when the President is going and it's being accepted as the new voted past precedent, right. So what did they say? They say he took an oath of office, right. Essentially saying that he's pleading that he is going to abide by certain things, right? For example, yes, To be fair to all people, he has to make sure that he does his job properly, that he doesn't use his position of power for personal gain, or rather he will use it for the benefit of the people. Those are the things that he's promising, right. So when they say he's taking an oath of office, That's what they're referring to there, saying, Hey, he's giving that promise, that all of those things that he's supposed to do, he will truthfully do them, right? So it could be used in cases like that as well. Or for example, when you go to a court, you're asked to take an oath that you will say the truth, nothing but the truth, the whole truth, right? So essentially they're saying, hey, you need to promise to us that you will be truthful in what you are going to say in court, right? And that's exactly what they say. They say. You need to take an oath that you will say nothing but the truth, all the truth, and nothing but the truth. All right, so that's essentially how to use OAuth. It's used in a lot of different contexts, but it always means that you are promising when you're taking the oath, you are promising to say the right thing and the true thing. And it's always used with the word tick, right? I'm taking an oath, right? Don't give an oath. You take it off. I'm taking the oath of office where I'm taking the oath for the courtroom. Right. So that's also very important. Make sure they use the word take with the word oath. 7. Vacant - Lesson 1, Word 6: Our next word is vacant. Now, vacant means to empty or not filled. Essentially, whenever something is empty or just not filled, it is referred to as bacon. For example, let's say you walk into a classroom and there's one empty seat, right? Like all of the seats are filled with students. There's one of DC. Right. You can refer to that seat as Oh, that's he does make it. I can go sit there. Right. You can just say it like that or let's say you have a house, but one of the rooms in the house is completely up to you like no one lives there, there's no furniture there. You could say, Hey, that room is vacant. I could probably rent it out or something. Right. Or let's say you have an apartment that you rent out and usually have someone renting it from you, but now they've moved out and there's no one there anymore. Right. And you're looking for someone new. You can say, Hey, my apartment is vacant. I'm looking for someone new to come and rent it. Right. That's also another way to use it. So anytime any space or any position or any anything really is empty or it's not filled at the moment, then you can refer to that as vacant. 8. Hardship - Lesson 1, Word 7: Our next word is quite an easy one. It's called hardship. Now, hardship is exactly what it sounds like. It refers to anytime something is extremely hard, right? So for example, let's say When I went bankrupt, I had to go through a lot of hardship to build back my credit score, for example, right? I had to go through a lot of hardship to make sure I am not seen as a waste of time. Make sure I'm not seen as a failure. Hardship is basically referring to anytime you go through a tough time or anything that is extremely hard for you to bear, right? So or you can say, Hey, what my my parents were ill, that I went through a lot of hardship in order to make sure they get the support they need in order to get better. Or I went through a lot of hardship because I didn't know if they were going to survive. And that was really tough for me emotionally. 9. Gallant - Lesson 1, Word 8: Our next word is gallon. Now, gallon essentially means brave. And so you can say the gallon soldiers storm the beach and took some territory from the opponent or something like that. Or you say, the gallon nights rounded the entire building and demanded some answers. All right, So gallon essentially means brave. And anytime someone does something brave and something unselfish and something quite difficult, I guess. You can refer to it as gout. 10. Data - Lesson 1, Word 9: Our next word is quite an easy one. It's data. Data is essentially a way to refer to facts or information, right? And when you collect data, you are essentially taking all sorts of facts and information you can get on something and then you are trying to use it in order to get some sort of conclusion out of it, right? So for example, I clicked it some data on the samples that I have from my experiments in order to see if my hypothesis was correct, right? So data essentially is used whenever you are talking about some sort of facts or some sort of information that you have either gathered or if you have found out about. 11. Unaccustomed - Lesson 1, Word 10: The next word is unaccustomed. And unaccustomed means not being used to something, right? For example, let's say you're an excellent worker. You always do your projects on time. Your employers love you and they have no reason to let you go. But one day, let's say for financial reasons, maybe the company is falling apart and even they just don't have enough money to keep you hire. They just let you go, right. And then just fire you. You could say, I was unaccustomed to be fired on the spot like that because that never happens to me, right. Or let's say you're someone who's very respected and no one's ever rude to you. And someone all of a sudden walks up in front of you and says the worst things to your face and they go on insult you and your family and you could say, Hey, I was really on accustomed to that happened to me. I was really unaccustomed to someone being so rude to me because that never have assuming, right. So anytime you're not used to something or you just don't expect something to happen. They can say, I was unaccustomed to that or this person was really unaccustomed to that thing happening to them, right? That's essentially what it means. Unaccustomed means when someone or something is not used to a specific thing happening to them. 12. Bachelor - Lesson 1, Word 11: Our next word is bachelor. Now bachelor refers to a man who has not been married or is single, right? And essentially, they use the term bachelor as a way to identify people who are not married. For whatever reason, maybe they want to say, Oh, that's a bachelor. That could be a good catch. Or maybe hey, like you're talking to your girlfriend, hey, that's a batch right there. Maybe you should go talk to him or stuff like that, right? And there's actually a show called The Bachelor here in North America, where it's essentially about a guy who is dating a bunch of different women and is going to find out which one is the right one for. The show was called The Bachelor because the guy who was the main guy in the show is on married, right? He is a single man and essentially is a bachelor. So that's what bachelor means. A man who is single. 13. Qualify - Lesson 1, Word 12: Our last word in this lesson is qualified. And qualify essentially means showing that you're fit for something or some position, or becoming fit or becoming eligible for a specific thing. For example, let's say, Hey, I did not qualify for that job, so I have to apply somewhere else. Right. Essentially, we're saying I was a fair didn't have good enough of a resume to apply for that job or maybe I didn't have the proper education that was required in order to go for that job, so I have to go somewhere else. Right. So qualify essentially means to become eligible and have all the requirements that are needed from you in order to get into a position. For example, a job, maybe in sports, Let's say you want to talk about, Hey, this team that unqualified for the playoffs because they didn't do as well as they had to do in order to qualify it. Like let's say they should have got a certain rank and they were not able to get there. So they did not qualify, or let's say another team that get that rank. So they did qualify for the playoffs and they are going to go into playoffs because they are eligible for it. I also qualify essentially means that to become fit for some sort of a position or some sort of a job or some sort of a sporting event or whatever, right. Becoming fit and become eligible for something. 14. Follow Me For More...: All right guys, hopefully you're enjoying the course so far.

Corpse - Lesson 2, Word 1: All right guys, welcome to lesson 2. The first word that we're going to learn together in this lesson is corpse. Now, corpse means a dead body and it's usually used to refer to a human that body rather than an animal that bug or something like that, you could use that in this context as well. An example of that would be the police found the corpse when they enter the crime scene, Right? So remember a corpse is a dead body. So the police entered the crime scene and they found a dead body on the floor. Right? Pretty simple. Or they brought the corpse to the funeral, right? Because a funeral is where they do all the things and they bury the dead person. And so they have to bring the corpse there, right? So they brought the corpse because of that body to the funeral, right? So pretty straightforward. And you're talking, want to talk about a dead body, specifically the dead body of a person. It's called the course. 16. Conceal - Lesson 2, Word 2: Our next word is concealed. Now conceal means to hide. Very simple. Essentially anytime are talking about someone or something being hidden, or someone hiding something. You just say conceal, right? For example, I concealed my actual income from my family members so they don't know what my income is. They don't know how much money I make. Or you could say, this person concealed a specific secret from their friends. They kept hidden. They didn't want to, they don't want the other people to know about that secret. Or you can just use it for objects, like it doesn't have to be about a secret or some sort of information. It could also be about an object. For example, you can say, the magician concealed the cart behind this poem, right? So he was doing a magic trick. He had a carbon this hand and then he conceal that like he made it look like he's disappeared the card, but he was actually concealing it behind this hand. Right. And again, get a ceiling means he was hiding it. All right. So anytime you want to talk about someone or something or someone or something hiding something or someone or something being hidden. You can use the word conceal. 17. Dismal - Lesson 2, Word 3: The next word is this mole. And this mole means dark and depressing. Usually used to refer to the weather or the mood, or the lighting in a specific environment, right? By you can say whether is really dismal this afternoon because it's super cloudy. There's no sun in the sky. It's probably going to rain. So it's dark and depressing, right? Or let's say you walk into a room and there isn't enough light because there aren't enough lights on at the time or maybe the lights are very dim so he can't really see much. You could say, oh, this is a very dismal environments, right? Because quite dark and probably quite depressing as well. Okay, So anytime you want to describe something that's dark and depressing, you can use the word dismal. 18. Frigid - Lesson 2, Word 4: The next word is frigid. Now frigid means very cold. Whether you're talking about literally as in the temperature, or whether you're using it figuratively as in, let's say some way of behavior or how someone shoots someone else. For example, let's say I treat someone else very harshly. And you could probably say all being very cold to that person, right? Like I'm being unfair, I'm not being compassionate. You can also say that the manner in which I'm treating that person is frigid, right? But you can also use it for temperature. For example, you can say, when I open the freezer, the temperature is absolutely frigid, right? Essentially saying that the temperature is very cold or you can say in the winter, the temperature outside is Bridget, right? Saying that it's very cold outside, essentially, right. So the ward fridge, it basically just means very cold, whether you use a literally or you use it figuratively, both ways and works. 19. Inhabit - Lesson 2, Word 5: Next word is inhabit. Now inhabit means to live somewhere, right? So you can use it for normal types of living. Like for example, I inhabit my house, for example, meeting that I live in my house. Pretty simple, right? Or you can use it when you're referring to how specific group are moving and where they are living like, for example, you could say the Eskimos and habits, the Antarctica, for example, right? You can say that the Eskimos are living in the South pole, right? And you use that by saying the word and habit. Or you could say the penguins inhabit the South pole or the Antarctica, right? Essentially saying that the vast majority of penguins are living in the South. Cool. All right, so anytime we want to talk about someone living in a specific place or a group as a whole, living in a specific place, you can use the word inhabit. 20. Numb - Lesson 2, Word 6: Next word is NAM. And NAM refers to when you lack the power of feeling. So you can't feel something, right. For example, let's say you're injured part of your limb and just can't feel anything you can't like if you touch something you can feel anything right? They call that being numb, right? And be careful. The b is silent and this word, so it's a written NUM be, but it's only read numb, right? As you notice, I don't pronounce the b, so very important, be careful of that and it's pronounced num. And you can talk about body parts being numb, or you can use it conceptually as well. For example, you can say, This person has so used to seeing violence and movies that he's numb to it, right? Essentially saying that he doesn't even like feel anything when he sees violence in movies, for example, or like people fighting and movies. If feels like that's pretty normal, right? And he does it, He's not alarmed by it because it's something that he's seen a lot. So he's become numb to it. Right. So you can use it both literally as far as your body parts being numb or let's say you're freezing so you're super num to everything because you can't focus on anything else. Or if he using his actually, you can use it in cases where you've become so used to something that you don't have to feel anything about it anymore. For example, the example with violence in movies or another example would be doctors, right? So Dr. see so many different horrific injuries from people that they'd kinda become numb to it, right? And when they see someone who's broken their arm and let's say a bonus sticking out. That's pretty disgusting for most human beings, but for doctors because they've seen so many instances like that, they've become numb to it, which means that it's normal for them. Now. They don't they don't feel disgust just like me and you do, right. Because they've become numb to it. Alright, so anytime we want to talk about someone or something, losing the power of feeling, you talk and you use the word numb. 21. Peril - Lesson 2, Word 7: Our next word is parallel. A parallel means danger. Plaintiff, simple, nothing crazy about it, just means danger. So you can say I'm in a lot of parallel, which means that I'm in a lot of danger, right?

You might see them in airports. You will see them in a lot of places, right?

Like it has all the same things that you see in other cars at this price. It's very typical, right? So for example, you can say it has all the normal things you've come to expect from a car. It has the same kind of system. It pretty much has the same like taught maximum speed and it has the same capacity for gas and all the same like it burns gas at the same rate as other cars. It's very typical. There's nothing extraordinary about it, and there's nothing that it's lacking from other cars. It's very typical. That's kind of normal, right?

Minimum - Lesson 3, Word 2: Our next word is minimum. Now minimum means lowest possible amounts. So anytime you're talking about the lowest possible amount, but a lowest possible figure, you can just use the word minimum, right? So for example, the minimum price that you have to pay to buy a cup of coffee is $1, right? That means that you cannot find the, any coffee shop in town that sells you a cup of coffee for less than a dollar, right? That's the lowest possible might get buy it for. Or you could say, the minimum amount of exercise that you have to have every day in order to stay healthy is 30 minutes. What does that mean? That means that the lowest possible amount of exercise that you can get away with while still staying healthy is half an hour. So if you doing even a little bit less than that, you're probably not going to stay healthy, right? Because you're not meeting the minimum requirement, right? So the minimum is the lowest possible amount that you need to put it for anything. 29. Scarce - Lesson 3, Word 3: The next word is scarce. Now scarce essentially means rare. So anytime you're talking about something that has a rare or is not found, often, you can use the word scarce. For example, we can say Gold is scarce because gold is a rare commodity, like gold is found, not all that often. It's found in very few times, in very few places. It's very rare, it's very hard to come by. And therefore, you can say, Gold is scarce. Or you can say, oh, this type of design is very scarce because it's not a design that you often see in whatever product you're talking about, right? Like if you're talking about cars and you say that design of this specific thing about the scar is extremely scarce because like no other car has this specific desires of them, right?

For example, your birthday is an annual event because your birthday only happens once a year. And it happens every year, right? So every year for once, for one day in the whole year, you have a birthday. And that's an annual event, right? Christmas is an annual events because it's only on December 25th and it's every single year on December 25th and no other day, right? And that's essentially what annual means. Now, this could also refer to anything else, right? You have an annual party at your workplace, right? And let's say you haven't annual Christmas party or you have an annual end of summer gets together with your friends or something like that, right? It doesn't have to be something like a birthday or a specific holiday. It can be any event that is happening once a year, every year, right?

But then I told them about how amazing that thing isn't what a great price it's at. Then they were like, Oh yeah, maybe I will buy it, right. In this instance, I persuaded them to make that purchase, right? Because they were not intending on buying that thing. Because I explain them what a great thing it is, or how amazing the prices, or how they really should take advantage of this deal. They went ahead and actually built the thing, right? So they changed their mind. I persuaded them to change their mind and by what I wanted them to buy. All right, so that's what persuasion means. Anytime you convince someone of something by you want them to be convinced off, then in that case you are persuading them. 32. Essential - Lesson 3, Word 6: Our next word is essential, which means something that's very important or something that's needed. All right, so for example, if you say water is essential for living, right? Because, because without water you cannot live, right? You need water every single day. You're living in order to maintain a healthy life, right? Like if you don't drink water for three days, you'll probably die, right? Like you body counts as stain that long. Just going without water. So in that sense, water is an essential part of life because without it, it will not happen. So it's needed, it's required and it has to be there. It's very important to it. You could also say, money is essential for having a good lifestyle. Because without money, you can't have a high lifestyle. You probably can't afford to buy a lot of things. So having money is essential if you want to have a very good and high lifestyle. All right, so a second, we're talking about something that's needed or required or is very important for something else to happen. That thing is essential. All right, so that's basically, well essentially means being good and be important. 33. Blend - Lesson 3, Word 7: Next word is blend, and blend means two mixed up together. For example, if you say, I lent a couple of different drinks to make it really nice cocktail, or I blend a couple of colors to make a new color, right? Essentially when you're mixing a couple of different stuff and creating something new and something fun with it. That's what we call blending, right? You can also use it as something that has been mixed up together. For example, we can say this cocktail is a blend of these different drinks, right? So you can use it both ways and use it as a verb. Say that I'm blending them. You can also use it as a noun. You can say this is blend. It's a blend of this, this, this. All right, so you can use it both ways. 34. Visible - Lesson 3, Word 8: Next word is visible, and invisible means be able to be seen. Now you might notice visible is the opposite of invisible and invisible means to now be able to be seen, right? So if someone's invisible, you can't see them, right?

But once a fog went away, the house was once again visible, right? Essentially saying that now I can see it. Or you can say, oh, hey, I couldn't see anything because nothing was visible because there was no light on in the room. But once I turned on the lights, everything was visible. Alright, so anytime you are able to see something, you refer to it as visible. 35. Expensive - Lesson 3, Word 9: The next word is expensive, very common word. I'm guessing a lot of you have already heard of expensive. It means to be at a very high price or be very costly, right? So a very easy example would be, this item is extremely expensive, or like, hey, this thing is a $1000. Well that's really expensive. That's not what I expect it, right? So anytime something is priced really highly, you can call it are expensive and doesn't even have to be as far as how much it costs money wise, you can say, oh, that's very expensive. In different ways, like how much time it's going to take you to do something or how tiring something can be to do some ease and those kinds of terms as well. But mostly you're going to be using it when you're talking about how something is priced extremely high and it's really expensive to buy. 36. Talent - Lesson 3, Word 10: Next word is talent. Talent means natural ability to do something, right? So for example, you can see that's soccer player has a lot of talent. What does that mean? That means that, that soccer player had a lot of natural ability within them to be a really good soccer player. You are now at harnessing that ability to become a soccer player. Alright, so the talent is not the part that the have done themselves. So it's not the part where the practice and they try every day to be a really good soccer player. It's the parts that was within them inherently. And it was like a natural part of them that had this sort of talent and had this sort of potential to be really good at this thing, right? So it's a little bit more of a not feasible parts of achieving something you like when you have talent to do something, It's essentially saying that you naturally have that thing that's needed for you to succeed at that. The soccer player example, there's a very good example when you have talent for soccer, you're saying that, oh, you kind of have the natural thing you, that would make you succeed at soccer. But of course, that's on enough like you have to go practice. You have to make sure you are using that talent and potential, you realizing it by actually doing a lot of work on it. But the parts where you naturally have that part down, where you have the potential to be really good. That part is called tau. 37. Devise - Lesson 3, Word 11: Next word is devise. Now devise means to plan something, right? So let's say I'm devising on how to teach the vocabulary that I wanted to teach, right? So I'm planning out what I'm going to talk about and what examples I'm going to use. And then I'm going to come here and tell you guys about it. Alright, so the planning part, I can refer to it as the vi's are devising, right? So essentially you can use it in place a planet. Anytime we wanna say you're planning for something, where you're thinking about something. Before you do it, you can refer to it as device. 38. Wholesale - Lesson 3, Word 12: Our last word for this lesson is wholesale. Now wholesale needs to buy something in large quantities or bite a lot of something at once. All right, so this is usually used in businesses. So for example, let's say you have a store and you, let's say you sell socks, right? So you have to buy a lot of songs to always have enough socks for people to come and take it, Look, see which one they like. And then they, you must have enough for them to just keep buying without you running out of socks, right? So you have to buy, let's say 506. Well, you buy 500 socks. That's buying a large quantity of Psalms. You're buying a lot of it. So that's what we referred to as wholesale. And obviously with a wholesale, there comes a lot of benefits. For example, you can get a better price because you're buying 500 of them at a time. You'll usually get a discount from the person who is selling it to you because, you know, they, they like that and you're buying a lot of and they want to incentivize that. They want to applaud you for doing in the winding, give you something to make you do this even more, right? So they are probably going to give you this downward, probably going to give you a lower price in order to have you buy as many as you possibly can. That's how businesses actually go about trying to make even more money. Because if they wholesale and they buy something at large quantities and buy a lot of it at once. What they can do is they can buy it at a lower price and then they can profit more by selling it. Alright, so anytime you buy something in large quantities, essentially meaning you buy a lot of something. And once it's called a wholesale. 39.

It's an a gas state for sure, but you can't see it. And that's a key difference with vapor. You can see it. And a lot of times vapor is really used for the gas state of water, right? So anytime you evaporate the water, they just call that a vapor as well. It doesn't have to be just that, but a lot of times that's used as well, essentially fog, think of it this way. Fog is the water and a gas state, right? Because those are the water molecules in the air. So anytime you see some sort of a moist or in the air that can be seen visually and it's changing, it's distorting your view. You can see definitely there's something there that is what we referred to as vapor. A lot of times it's just water and a gas state.

You can use it to describe stuff in chemistry and physics using a lot of different ways and you use it in economics. But has actually ever used the word dense. You're saying that a group of things are closely packed together rather than being apart from each other. 43. Utilize - Lesson 4, Word 5: Next word is utilize. Now utilize means to make use of something. For example, let's say I had the camera and I want to record a course.

And that's the key thing about theory is that it's not proven, but it's derived from something that you have thought of, right? So you thought about something, you reason about something, and you came to a theory, which means that this is the conclusion that you've come to buy intellectually thinking about what you were thinking of. And now this is the conclusion that you've come to, but you haven't proven it.

If I eventually get it backwards up like that. Or you can talk about how water circulates in our environment. So we have the sea or the ocean and evaporates, becomes a cloud and then the cloud rain. So it comes back down and eventually goes back to the ocean so it's circulating, right? So when you use the word circulate, you're just referring to something going in a circle, whether it's a concept or it's something physical. As long as it's going in a circle, you can use the word circulate. 48. Enormous - Lesson 4, Word 10: Our next word is enormous. And enormous means extremely large or extremely huge, right?

Like, don't say, Oh, that's an enormous Kit-Kat bar. Like that's not really how you use it, right? You don't just say, oh, that's large. So I've just used the word enormous. Even though there are synonyms, there is a slight difference and a slight differences that enormous is a lot more powerful and it's used to describe something that is extremely large, rather than just using the word large.

It's odd there, right? So anytime you want to say, and you want to describe that something has disappeared, you used the word banish. You can also use it for, let's say, if there's someone who's turn invisible, right? What they do is they vanish because they're there. And then a second later when they turn invisible, they're no longer there. You can't see them, right? So they have vanished is a word that you would use or would you say the magician, right? Because a lot of conditions have this act where they like put some cloth or some robot their heads and then all of a sudden they're not there anymore, right? And they have vanished. That's the word they use to describe. You say the advantage. So whether something literally disappears, you can use the word manage.

It can be our family tradition is that on Sundays would all get together. All right. This is something that my family has been doing for the past hundreds of years. Grandfather, my great grandfather, they all had this tradition that they would get together on Sundays and they would just have a family get-together, right?

And you're trying to preserve that same tradition, right?

For example, let's say you have a lot of responsibilities. And you can say, Hey, these responsibilities are a burden to me, right? And it kinda has a negative connotation because it's implying that it's a little too much of responsibilities or a little too much of stuffing have to do that.

Like it's not as serious as when, let's say nasa sends a lot of astronauts to the moon to explore the moon, right?

And again, they can be anything, it can be in a serious context. It could be like, for example, two presidential candidates are two people who want to be the president, are debating about their policies, right? So there were debating, this person is debating that, Hey, we should do this thing to make our country better. That other person could be debating that we should do this other thing to make the country better. And they can have a debate where each person is disagreeing with each other and are trying to prove why others wrong and they are right, right. So that would be the serious context, but you can use it also in little bit more looser terms as well. For example, you can save. I had a debate with my dad on whether I should buy this car, right?

So if it doesn't have that ability, that's a defect getting that's a fault with it. There's something wrong with it. That wasn't supposed to be wrong with it, right? Because it was supposed to connect to the Wi-Fi quite easily. But if, let's say there's some part missing in that folder, some part of that phone is broken.

Or you can say, in the college that I went to, I was really popular, right? Because in that college, all the people who went there, a lot of them knew me and makes me right, so I will become popular among those people, right?

You need to know some important things like how you brush, or how your role, or how you're supposed to mask things before you go ahead and paint, or which paints you need to use a lot of different things that you need to know.

Like if someone says, I have magic beans, pay me a $100, you can get these magic beans and they will grow into an enormous tree and you can go into clouds and whatever, right? That versus defrauding you because there is no such thing as magic beans, right? And so even if you pay a $100 for those beans, those beings aren't gonna do anything, right? So they got that money from you by not being truthful and just saying these are beans, do you want to pay a $100? They differ you because he cheated and the way they got that money, they is wide apart there. What they were selling to you, the light that this thing was magical, I was gonna do this thing or that thing or the other thing.
