And so I'm just going to show you around my apartment just a little bit. Andi, just explain to you what the names are off. A few of the things I have here in my apartment, so let's go. So, first of all, over here, this is my bed. This is my bed where I sleep a night over there. There are some curtains hanging up on the window. That's curtains hanging up on the window down here. I have ah, little table. A little table on. There are some ornaments on the table such as this. Little cooked down here on that cooked there on There are a few cooks on there. There's a plot there which is more of a a thing that is useful than you would describe. Ornaments on ornament is something that just sits there and looks pretty. Whereas a So you know oclock is useful, isn't it. So those are a few things have got on that little table there. There's a picture there on the floor which should be on the wall, but it's falling off. Got another picture there on that one, which is on the floor. Actually fell off last night, and I haven't got to Haven't had time to put it back off onto the wall yet. Okay, so this is my sofa. That's my sofa. Okay, there's a chair There were not looking too good for a few things on it, but there's a chair sofa. So we've had bed curtains which are closed because it's evening on by. The window is behind the curtains, the window. Oh, and up there is an air conditioner that there is the air conditioner. So one else that we talked about, we talked about the sulfur on the chair. There is my clothes rail which has got my clothes hanging on there and also over here in the corner. If you can see that, that is a hat stand. So I'm gonna stand there where I put my hat. So light wearing hats, you see, especially here in Bangkok. This is very hot. And you need to wear a hat to keep you to keep the sun out of your eyes and off your head. Yeah. So there's 1/2 stand. There is a fan. A fan to keep me cool. So although I've got the air conditioner there, I've also got a fan as well. You need it here because it gets very hot down there in the corner is a wastepaper basket or a garbage bin. So there we are. So that's it. A little bit of vocabulary there. Things around my apartment, things around the whole. So there we are. Then I hope you enjoyed that little lesson on home vocabulary. Onda Hope you understood what I was talking about. Check out the vocabulary and see if you can say it. Say those same words as me. Okay. In my English British English accent. All right. See you next time. Bye. For now. 4. Computer Vocabulary: Okay, Peter, here you're English conversation and success, coach with you again. So more vocabulary for you this evening on this time again. And I'm at my apartment and we'll see what else I can find for U. S. So I can explain what the thing is are called. So, first of all, let's take a look at some of my equipment I have here that I use for working with online. Okay, here we go. Now, that's that is my monitor screen. Have a separate monitor because I've got a damaged computer down here. You can see the screen is damaged. That's my laptop. On a side, you can see the screen is damaged, so I use a monitor there. But I also have another laptop here as well. So this is another. Open it or blow it up for you. They go. That's another laptop have down there as well. Um, for obviously doing my work on this. I work online here. I've got a lamp. Bright, isn't it? So I just turned the lump head around. That's a lamp there on this. Here is my microphone that I use for voice overs. It's got a sock over it. This is a soccer or it, which I uses a windshield because your voice on some of the English letters pop like the letter P. If you put your hand up in front of your face and go Paul, you'll feel the wind hits your hand. So this sock avoids that. At least it does a little bit anyway. Help certainly helps. So just a few more things they're around my apartment with which I use and with which you have learned, hopefully, the vocabulary off. So there we go and I'll see you again next time for another vocabulary lesson here with Pizza, the English conversation and Success Court sees bye for now. 5. How To Use Vocabulary: Peter here again, your English conversation and success. Coach Andi. Today I'm just going to explain to you about how to use vocabulary to learn English. I don't actually think I mean Abdullah. Few videos here about different words. Vocabulary, which may be is nu tiu about things around my apartment. However, as you know, especially if you follow May. I'm not on English teacher. What I am is a conversation coach. I concentrate on speech. I don't think that just learning the world's is enough, just those words on their own. I think what you should do is learned those words within phrases on sentences. So let's use some of those words we've learned over the past few days in sentences. First of all, in the first video ended a few days ago, I was cooking eggs in the kitchen. So there you go. That's a phrase for your sentence for you. I was cooking eggs in my kitchen. On the second video, I made Waas about some of the things around my whole some of the normal things, like the bed I sleep in a bed on, so there's another sentence for you. I sleep in my bed um, on something else. We concentrated on that particular lesson. Waas a table on some things on the table like ornaments and pictures. Andi Oclock. So I could say my clock is on the table in my apartment, so that's another phrase or sentence for you. My clock is on my table in my apartment. On the very last vocabulary video, I made waas about some of the equipment I use to work with online through the computer equipment. As you saw. If you watch that video, have a monitor as well as a laptop, and that's where one of the reasons for that is because my laptop isn't damaged. So I use a monitor because my main laptop is damaged. So there's another sentence for you to use that vocabulary in. I think it's important if you're learning to speak English, is that you don't just learn the vocabulary on its old. Put it into sentences on get used to how the English use sentences, how we English native speakers use sentences. So let's do a few more sentences for you. We'll just go back to the beginning with the eggs. I was cooking eggs in my kitchen. I was cooking eggs in my kitchen on then we said about the clock on the table. My clock is on my table in my apartment. My clock is on my table, in my apartment. Okay. Just listen carefully. Toe how these sentences are formed in English. Then we looked at the equipments I used. And I said that I have a monitor because I have a damaged laptop. I have a damage laptop. Sure. Therefore, I use a monitor as well. Yeah. So there's another sentence for you. I have a damage. Laptops will Therefore, I use a monitor as well. Okay. So I hope that just shows you a little bit about how you should learn to speak English. Not just the vocabulary, not just learning the vocabulary. I mean, you need to know the words on the meaning of the words. Both. Also, when you're learning to speak, you should actually learn it by listening to unlearning sentences of phrases in English so he can pick up the rhythm and flow off English. So there we go. A whole. We've learned something in this little video lesson as well. Okay. Mining's pizza, your English conversation and success, Coach. And I'll see you again. Super by
