1. Introduction: and low. In this course, we're going to have some fun making English conversations. We're going to use idioms and pictures and put them together to make conversations. First will show you an idiom will explain. It will give you an example and make sure you understand it. Then we'll show you a picture, and we're going to describe this picture in detail. Then we're going to combine the idiom and the picture to create a conversation. After we practiced the conversation, we're going to look at the vocabulary and phrases in the conversation, and we're going to use extra pictures and extra images to make sure you understand what's going on. All right, let's have a great time improving your ability to make English conversations. 2. "a blessing in disguise": it was bad to get hit by the ambulance. This conversation is kind of creepy. That just means, you know something in your brain is boo boo. Hello again. In this lesson, we're going to use the idiom, a blessing in disguise and a picture. And together we're going to create a conversation. We're also going to talk about the following vocabulary words and phrases. Ambulance Gorgeous. Crazy. Hold him back. Thanks and excited. Okay, this is gonna be a great lesson. Here we go. First. Let's talk about the idiom. A blessing in disguise. We need to make sure we understand what it means. So a blessing in disguise is a misfortune, which turns out to have advantages and a misfortune is something bad that happens, right? Something that causes problems or stress in our life. But later it turns out that that bad thing has advantages. Advantages are good things, things that make our life better. So in other words, a blessing in disguise means something bad happens, which creates something good. Here's an example. Getting run over by the ambulance was a blessing in disguise. The driver was a gorgeous woman and we got married. So obviously something very bad happened at the beginning. Getting run over means the vehicle knocked you down and ran over. You went over top you so and that vehicle was an ambulance. Let's take a look at what an ambulance is. All right. First, let's just say the word Ambulance. Ambulance. Okay. And let's get the definition. The definition of an ambulance is an emergency vehicle used to transport still sick and injured people. Transport is just a way to save. Bring people from one place to another place, like transportation. Right. And here are some examples of ambulances. So here's one right here, and we have a person in the back there putting the gurney. It's called that little cart where people roll around on top of the gurney into the back of it. Here is another ambulance, which is from a very common to see in the United States. All right, here's another one. I think this is Europe. Not quite sure I haven't seen one like this in America where I used to work as a police officer. I think this is in Europe, but just look at all their equipment, right? If all of these emergency supplies and equipment to help out people to help me. People. People feel better to save people to do stuff like that. And in this picture, we can actually, so we can see the ambulance in the background and inside it. There are a lot of different instruments, medical things to check on. People help people make people feel better, stuff like that. And here we have a guy in the ground. Something happened. Who knows? Maybe he had a heart attack or a sick or something. We have nurses and we have the emergency people and they're here and they're doing what they do. They're probably going to give him a ride in the ambulance later to bring him to the hospital, right back to the example. So the idiom is a blessing in disguise, and getting run over being knocked over by the ambulance was a blessing in disguise. So it actually turned. What was a bad thing. Turned out to be a good thing because the driver of the ambulance was a gorgeous woman and we got married. Let's talk about the word gorgeous. Gorgeous means beautiful, right? We can also say very attractive, lovely, stunning. We can't even say striking if we use it. In a phrase, we could say a gorgeous woman, a beautiful woman, a very attractive woman, a lovely woman, a stunning woman, a striking woman. We can say an attractive woman, but attractive is a little bit more regular. There's still very nice to look at, but gorgeous is, like, quite high. Like, really beautiful. Right? So that's how we put very attractive to make it mawr similar to Gorgeous. Once again, the words are gorgeous. Beautiful, very attractive. Lovely, stunning and striking. So all of these pictures over here are off gorgeous women. They're beautiful, They're probably models. And yeah, I think most men would say that they're very beautiful. Okay, so in this example, the blessing in disguise was, and it kind of sucked. It was bad to get hit by the ambulance. What? The driver was a hot lady, a beautiful woman, a gorgeous woman. And we fell in love and got married. So if I would not have been hit by the ambulance, I never would have met this gorgeous woman. We wouldn't be married, so it was a blessing in disguise. Okay, let's move to the conversation. Right Here we go. Let's talk about the picture, huh? Right. I'm ready. All right. So in this picture, I see two teenagers, two girls, two young ladies. You could say one's name is Amy. The other's name is Anna. And if I have guessed their ages, I would say there probably about 16 17 16 17 18 years old. So you could say they're teenagers. Young ladies, I guess you could say women, but they would be young women. Young ladies. All right, so let's start with Amy. Amy has dark brown hair, and it's a little bit difficult to see, but she might have braces on her teeth. Embraces are the things like the wire, things that go on your teeth. The dentist will put them on to make your teeth straight right? Or to make them straighter. Alright, So Amy has a long sleeve sweater on which is great and white, other stripes on it, and it looks like maybe a wool sweater or a thick cotton sweater. And it's a long sweating right? So it goes down past her waist. Looks like all the way down to like her knees. She has blue jeans on. It looks like brown boots and the boots are very high. The boots go all the way up to her knee. It looks like they're leather boots and Amy smiling. And she is looking at Anna, uh, underneath very sweater. Amy has a black shirt on. Looks like she has a bracelet on. I'm not sure what kind it is. She has her hands crossed in front of her, with one palm on top of the other and her hands or just resting near her waist. All right, so Anna has long blond hair, and there are streaks in it. Which makes me think that, she added, highlights my lights or just like extra different colored stripes kind of in the hair. And I'm going to guess that her natural hair color is a darker blonde. And she added the later Blunt's highlights to her. Here she's smiling even wider. Oh, and laughing almost and, uh, let's see, can't see their eye colors at all and also has on. To me. It looks more like a coat than a sweater, but it hasn't unique design, which is like a light blue, and there are some diamonds with a dot in the middle and yeah, to me, it looks more like a coat. Amy's, I suppose you could say it's like a sweater coat or a coat that's like a sweater. Anna has a similar hand position to Amy, where her hands are crossed, one palm on top of the other and is resting her hands, arresting together near her waist. Looks like the shirt that she has underneath her coat is gray or tan, maybe, and she also has blue jeans on and leather boots, so their outfits are quite similar. If you look at the details, they're a little bit different. Black shirt like a gray shirt and their court like a coat and more with sweater. But they're very similar. This is a long coat goes down to the length of down by her thigh. In the environment, there are blue brick walls, so the bricks were painted blue. It looks like they're leaning against a white door, right, and so they have their backs leaning against the door and they're smiling. And something must be wonderful to talk about, and that's why we're here. We're going to figure out What are they talking about? Let's do it. This is the conversation between Amy and Anna. And just quick to summarize the picture, I would say I see two young ladies are laughing and sharing a joke, and they're dressed similar and lean against a white door. Right? Okay. So aim, Amy starts the conversation. She says being chased by our crazy neighbor, it was actually a blessing in disguise, you know? I know. If he wasn't trying to kill us, we would never have become best friends. Amy, how long will this door hold in back? He keeps chopping at it with his acts. Anna may be the end of this chase will be a blessing in disguise. I'm so excited. Okay, so let's find the idioms a blessing in disguise, and we're gonna make them bold. So it's easy to see, and you can see where they're placed in the conversation and also how they're used in the conversation. Go down here. There's a 2nd 1 A blessing in disguise. Make it bold. All right. Okay. So let's see. You look through the conversation. It sure is correct. We'll fix it if we need to hear is the conversation at regular speed. Here we go. Amy being chased by our crazy neighbor was actually a blessing in disguise. Anna. I know if he wasn't trying to kill us, we would never have become best friends. Amy, how long will this door hold him back? He keeps chopping at it with his acts. Anna may be the end of this chase will be a blessing in disguise. I'm so excited, so this conversation is kind of creepy. These girls aiming and are like that, but they're crazy neighbors chasing after them with an ax. All right, so let's explore some of the vocabulary words in this conversation. First, the word crazy, right? Let's see some other ways to say crazy and then we'll talk about these pictures. So another way to say crazy would be insane. He is insane. He's trying to kill us with an ax. You're considered mentally deranged. That just means you know something in your brain is boo boo and you are mentally unstable and crazy. You can see mad and here doesn't mean like anger. It means if someone has gone mad or if a dog has gone mad and there's foaming at the mouth and it just tries to attack everyone, it's not thinking clearly so someone could go mad and just go insane. And you could say Someone is out of his mind. All right, This one's a phrase, too, so we'll put some rotations around it. So these are other ways to say crazy. We use it in a phrase. He's for a sentence. He's crazy. She's insane. I think they're mentally deranged. He's mad. They're out of their mind. He's out of his mind. All right, so let's look at the pictures. This lady, She that huh? I'm so hot. My fashion is wonderful, but I'm crazy. Okay, Next picture, this guy. I don't know. Maybe he is crazy. He's got a strange look on his face. And I I think I would like to eat you for dinner so we could say maybe he's mentally deranged. This lady right here, she has been drawing on the wall with the marker, and she has a like a medical mask covering her face. And she she's drawn over everything. Her hands were black, and when she wrote on the wall, that doesn't really make any sense. So maybe she's out of her mind. You give her a marker, and she writes on the wall and covers everything in marker right now. This lady, it's Red Little Red Riding Hood out of a movie, but not the normal one. She is insane. She's mentally deranged. She's mad. She's gone out of her mind. She's got a butcher knife and she's probably not going to chop it. Chicken. She's going after grandma. Or maybe the wolf became. That's part of the story and Little Red Riding Hood. Okay, so these are other ways to say Crazy, insane, mentally deranged, mad out of his mind. Stay out of her mind out of their mind, out of my mind. Okay, Back to the conversation. So Amy being chased by our crazy neighbor was actually a blessing in disguise. So it's starting out that it seems like a horrible thing. The neighbors chasing us, and that's probably bad, right? Sees, probably wants to hurt us, but it's actually a good thing. It was bad at first, but it turned into be something good in our lives, and I know if he wasn't trying to kill us, we would never have become best friends. So maybe their neighbors. But they never met each other. And there's 1/3 neighbor who suddenly saw them and started chasing them. And that's how the girls met. And now they had such a wonderful time that they're best friends. All because of the crazy neighbor who's trying to kill them. Strange situation. All right, Amy, how long will this door hold him back? Mm. Old him back is a phrase. Let's check it out. See what it means. All right, hold him back. Some other ways to say hold him back would be keep him away. We could also say, Stop him from entering. Maybe coming inside the house or going through the door. Also, you say block his movement. So if the door is shut and he's unable to get through it, it blocks his forward movement and basically means just to stop him. Right? So in the conversation, we have the crazy neighbor with the act with an ax, and he's chasing after this. These girls and he's on the other side of this door and he's blocked, right? It's hold the doors, holding him back. Right now, the door is blocking him the doors, stopping him from entering where they are, Right? So this is just a big big door, Probably a vault at a bank or something inside that probably have money and valuables and stuff like that. So you could say this door is holding us back from going inside because you have to know the combination. You have to probably the key. You have to get the bank manager. So this door is holding us back from getting inside. In this picture, we have an old lock and it must be a gate or a door here. But the lark is keeping this gate or door from opening. But this lark is holding us back. And in this one, it's a person. And they're trying to hold us back with their arms. There are their hands or trying to push us away. Hold him back. Maybe they just keep pushing, keeping back. Keep him away. Block his movement. In this picture, there's a lady that she standing behind a fence. Maybe she came running towards us or she trying to get through. We could say this fence is holding her back because she's not making forward movement. Maybe she's unable to jump over it or something. But the fence is high enough. It's holding her back. All right, so these are other ways to say Hold him back. It could be. Hold them back. Hold her back. So keep him away. Stop him from entering block his movement and stopped him. Right. Okay. Back to ah, wild conversation. Okay, So how long will this door hold him back? How long will this door keep him out? Along with his door? Block him from entering It. Keeps chopping at it with his axe. Let's check out what an axe is. All right? The less. But in the definition, let's see. All right. An axe is a sharp tool used to chop wood, cut down trees or as a weapon. Right. And I've also seen it spelled as just a X acts. So acts in X, they would be said the same. I guess it depends on you how you like to use it. Use them. Uh, this is what I found in a dictionary. A x e. So it's a tool. It's sharp, like a knife. Right. So if you touch the edge, it can maybe cut you and it cuts through woods or would and cuts through people. Okay, So it's a tool. Something that helps us an instrument that helps us complete something or do something, and it's used to chop wood. Chop just means like this action. Chuck, Chuck, Top top. You have a knife, you can chop vegetables. You have an axe. You can chop wood, so we have to access. Right here we have an access chopping wood into smaller pieces. This is an axe. You see. It's a small acts. There's an extra word for a small acts. A hatchet. Um, hatchet is just basically a maniacs. All right, You put that down so it's easier. See, Hatchet is in many acts or just a small acts, and someone took the accident or trying to chop this big piece of wood, right? Maybe they need a bigger acts. It will chop easier and another way to use an axis as a weapon. This is a double sided acts, right? So it has a blade on this side. It has a blade on this side. He's just have one right one side of a blade. And this is like a warrior or a soldier in on our me a long time ago. It looks probably from a video game, but his weapon of choice is an axe, a battle ax. That's what they would call it a battle axe. All right, Wonderful. So this is an axe. It could be a useful tool for multiple things in the conversation, the guys chopping at it with his acts. And it is the door. So these girls air like how it's happening. But the door behind them he has accent is like junk junk. And he's not night. He's not knocking nicely saying Hello. May I please come through? No, he's got this accent is printed, chopped that door down to get through and only not have pleasant conversation with these girls. He wants to hurt them. He wants to kill them. We already know that because Anna said if he wasn't trying to kill us, so we know that he's trying to kill us. And that's what made us become best friends. Okay, so Anna ends this conversation by saying, maybe the end of this chase will be a blessing in disguise. So the chase is the guy pursuing them, chasing them around the apartment complex, this town, the city, whatever. And right now it's horrible because you think they'd be freaked out because this guy's trying to kill them. But maybe it can end in a good way, you know, Maybe he falls down. He falls down and breaks his neck in a whole bunch of cash, falls out of his pockets or keys to a car full of diamonds or something. I know this is like a fantasy, but it makes conversation. Okay, so Anna says, I'm so excited. So let's check out some other words for the word excited. Other words to say Excited. Now I wanna talk about the pictures so we could say Thrilled you say exhilarated, animated, enthusiastic. When you say eager. So we made a short sentence. I'm excited. I'm thrilled. I'm exhilarated. I'm animated. I'm enthusiastic. I'm eager. So all of these words and excited we have some good energy going on, right? We're looking forward to something. We're anticipating something. We want something to happen, right? So in the conversation, she says, I'm so excited. And I think she's looking for the end of this chase now. The chases, the horrible thing. But maybe at the end there's a blessing in disguise. Maybe something good will happen at the end. All right, so these pictures. Let's see. Where should we start? Lady, over here. She's got it. Hands up! She said ha! I'm so excited. I'm thrilled. I'm exhilarated. Why? Maybe she won the lottery, and she's like, Whoa! All right. I want once a money. This lady. Yes, he looks very enthusiastic. Very excited. She just got some good news. Uh, I got my new job, right? I'm so excited. Now. This guy, he looks kind like a rock star. He's got some wild hair, Got some funky sunglasses. He's like, Yeah, man, I'm so thrilled. It's awesome. Maybe his band just got a recording contract worth, like millions of dollars. And so they're gonna be able to play their music, live their dream and earn a lot of money. And this lady, artsy is a girl. A young girl. Maybe it was the last day of school, and now she's onto a summer vacation. So she jumps up in the air and she just said Alright, right, So enthusiastic, animated, thrilled, excited. Okay, so these air, other ways to say excited, go back to the conversation. But she ended. It ends the conversation. I'm so excited. Do you say I'm so thrilled. Oh, I'm so enthusiastic. All right, let's do the conversation one more time. Follow along and I'll say it at regular speed. Here we go. Amy. Being chased by our crazy neighbor was actually a blessing in disguise. Anna, I know if he wasn't trying to kill us, we would never have become best friends. Amy, how long will this door hold him back? It keeps chopping at it with his axe in a Maybe the end of this chase will be a blessing in disguise. I'm so excited. So in it. And she could have said, will be another blessing in disguise because the first blessing in disguise was bad part that they were being chased by the neighbor. But the good part that they became best friends. So at the end band, part of the blessing in disguise is that he's chasing them, trying to kill them. Most people would think that's a bad thing, and then maybe it will end in some way that will help their life. The examples I gave before, probably straight out of a movie like the guy comes tearing through the door. Then he falls down and breaks his neck and he dies, but in his pockets or his pockets are full of diamonds and they take the diamonds. And there you sell them and they have millions of dollars or something like that. And they have another adventure. Okay. All right. So today, in this lesson, we used the idiom and blessing in disguise with a picture, and we created a conversation. We also explored vocabulary words and phrases. Ambulance gorgeous, crazy. Hold him back acts and excited. Okay. All right. I enjoyed teaching this lesson. I hope you enjoyed it to remember. Master your idioms. Master your English. Take care. See you soon. 3. "actions speak louder than words" + vocabulary: however, Sarah wants more money. Mm. A raise just means more money. Check. Ching. Right. We have some pissed off people here, right? Hello and welcome to this lesson. Today we're going to talk about an idiom. Actions speak louder than words and a picture together, we're going to create a conversation, and we're going to talk about vocabulary, see other pictures and talk about everything. All right? The first thing we need to do is talk about the idiom. Make sure we understand what it means. Actions speak louder than words is what someone does is more important than what they say. So actions, things they do are more important than their words. If someone tells you every day that tomorrow they're going to give you some money and then tomorrow comes and you're like, they're like, Oh, I'll give it to you tomorrow. OK, then tomorrow comes again and they're like, Oh, I'll give it to you tomorrow. So basically what they're saying If people don't do what they say, we can't believe them. Someone keeps telling you they'll give you money, but they never do. And they say they will. They will, but they never do it the perfect situation for actions speak louder than words. Let's see an example. Sam always promises to bring caviar on New Year's Day, but he never does. Actions speak louder than words, so Sam likes to talk. I'm gonna do this. I'm going to do that. I'm going to do everything. But later on, where's Sam? Nothing happens. All right, so the word promises. Let's talk about what that means. All right, So a promise. You look at the pictures, let's see the definition of promise. A promise is an agreement that you will do something or that something will happen. So if I tell you like in this first picture here, we can see it says job applications the job application that people are shaking hands. If this guy says great, I'm going to be the hardest worker you've ever seen. But then he doesn't even come to work or is late door. He's lazy, and he broke his promise, right? So promise, once again is an agreement that you will do something or that something will happen in this picture. This guy's probably promising, making an agreement that he will be a good worker. You'll be responsible. You'll do what's necessary and box. He asked him to do something. He'll do it in this picture. Over here. This is called a pinky. Swear me. Type it in here is called a pinky, I swear. And your pinky is this finger right here? The little ones we have to Pinky's. And when two people making agreement is probably with kids, right? Oh, we'll be best friends forever. Or, you know I'm going to do this for you, Pinky. Swear? Yes. And then they go like this and you could see in the picture where they hook their pinkies together. So they hooked there to smallest fingers together. And they promise something. If you say I swear it's another way to say I promise. So you could say I swear to do whatever, right? I swear to do it. I promise to do it in this picture. Down here we have two people, I would say its two men shaking hands. One has a business suit on the other One has maybe a sweatshirt long sleeve shirt, and I'm not sure the location, but there shaking hands. So they're probably agreeing on something, or they could be just greeting each other. But if they've been around, they've been talking for a while. Maybe it's a contract. Okay? My company's gonna work with your company. Okay? Sounds good. We can agree on that price. Then they shake hands, and one perfect one person is promising to do something else. Okay, Back to the conversation or the example. Okay. So Sam always promises. He says he'll do it. He says he's going to bring caviar. What is caviar? Oh, I think we look at pictures. Great. So caviar is fish eggs, and I'm not sure I may have had caviar. I'm not quite sure I had fish eggs. I guess that would be caviar. So it's considered a delicacy and a delicacy is something that people think is very nice and they're willing to probably spend a lot of money for. So if you have very high quality caviar, I think Russia makes they produce a lot of caviar, and people are willing to pay a lot of money for these fish eggs, right? It looks like they put them on bread and looks like there's butter and they put caviar on top. Never tried it. I would be willing. I guess over here we have a tray like a big dish with different kinds of caviar, right? Looks like on top, there's orange or red, one with the eggs and then below. There are some black eggs, and here we have a spoon that's full of caviar. Maybe it was scooping it up Over here. It's like a little treat. I don't know cream or some sort of pastry thing, and they put fish, eggs, caviar on top. So this is caviar, fish, eggs. All right, so Sam says he's going to bring caviar on New Year's Day. Let's make sure we understand New Year's Day. Here's some pictures for New Year's Day, so New Year's Day is just January 1st, right? First of each year. All right, so this would be different from New Year's Eve, which is actually the December 31st of you know, whatever year New Year's Eve means the night before, if someone says Christmas Eve, it would be the night before, all right. Christmas is usually on December 25th so Christmas E would be on December 24th. So New Year's Day once again is January 1st of each year in New Year's Eve would be the day before December 31st and a New Year's Day. We usually say Happy New Year, right, and we have fireworks and happy New Year. People like to party and they have hats and champagne and glasses and they talk about, you know, I promise I'm going to do this the New year. I'm going to improve in all this great stuff. Okay, so this was the example. Sam always promises to bring caviar on New Year's Day, but he never does. Actions speak louder than words. In other words, we need Teoh. Pay more attention to what Sam does, and not just what he says, because he got stuck. Okay, let's move on through the main part of the lesson. The conversation. And I think first we need Woo. Yes, nice. We need to talk about the picture. So I see two people. I see Sarah and I see Fred and Sarah is looking directly at Fred, and Fred is looking directly at Sarah. Sarah is sitting down, Fred is standing and he's leaning over a laptop computer that's on the table. Sarah has her elbows on the table, in her hands or together, uh, with her fingers bent a little bit like this, maybe. And there was close to her face. So let's talk about Sarah first. Sarah has longer hair. It's kind of a mixed between brown and maybe blond hair. It looks to me like your hair is kind of messy. Maybe she's been working a long time or she just didn't really fix up her hair that morning . I don't know. I am not. Ah, hair expert. All right, so Sarah has an earing if you look real close. One earring in her right year, probably in her left ear, maybe in her left ear. We just can't see. It is covered with hair. Sarah has a ring on her left ring finger. So the fingers are thumb, index finger, middle finger ring finger and pinky finger. Remember the pinky swear right? Okay, so she has a ring on her left middle finger. Right? Okay. Her shirt is great. It's a long sleeve. Sure, maybe car like a thin sweater or a long sleeve. Kind of like a turtleneck. Turtleneck is something that comes up higher like this, like a long neck. But that's not too long. So kind of a medium maybe a Mark turtleneck. I think they call it where it's not so honest in there. All right, so she's looking at Fred. I'd say she looks pretty serious. Uh, Fred is standing once again. Looks like he has short hair, kind of like mine. All right, Fred. He has a light brown shirt on like like a light Browning's. We could say it's long sleeve and it's a button up shirt, right? And when it's a button up shirt, they usually have buttons down here at the cuffs, the cuffs air. Just this part of the sleeve. It's long sleeve. Their buttons there is pointing kind, like he's pointing a gun. It is probably just pointing and referencing something. Looks like he's pointing at the computer. Or maybe a document, something that's on the table. Looks like Sarah is quiet. She's not speaking her lips together, and she's focused on Fred. Overlooked. However, it looks like Fred is speaking, his mouth is open a little bit. Okay, so let's see what they're actually talking about. Here we go. Sarah starts the conversation. All right, come on, Bars. I told you I'll have the project done by the end of the week, Red. Come on, Sarah. Actions speak louder than words. You're always late, Sarah. Well, you promised me a raise. Actions speak louder then words read. I promise you this. If the client is pissed off again on going to terminate you, Woo, do you see? Okay, so the idiom is actions speak louder than words. We're going to find the idioms in the conversation and make them bold. So it's easy to see them, and we could see how they're used in the conversation. All right, I take a quick check. All right? Okay. So now I'm going to say the conversation at regular speed The conversation between Sarah and Fred. Sarah, Come on, boss. I told you, I'll have the project done by the end of the week. Red. Come on, Sarah. Actions speak louder than words. You're always late, Sarah. Well, you promised me a raise. Actions speak louder than words read. I promise you this. If the client is pissed off again, I'm going to terminate you. Hmm. Interesting. Okay, One quick thing. I was thinking this could be a situation where he says, gonna I'm gonna terminate you, but I thought again. And since He's looks like he's the boss and she is his worker. More was a formal situation, especially if he's talking about the possibility of terminating her right. He would probably say, I'm going to because that's a bit more formal and respectful. Okay, more formal English. All right, so it kind of seemed like Sarah may not be the best employees. She's always late, and Fred seems very aware of this. However, Sarah wants more money. Mm. Let's talk about some of the vocabulary in this conversation. All right, so first, the word project. All right, let's jump over to some pictures. Great. Okay. So project here is the definition of the word project. All right, so a little bit long definition, but we'll get through it. No worries. So a project is an individual or collaborative effort that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a specific goal. So individual means working by yourself. One person collaborative means two or more people, right? You could have a team, right? So you could say these two women down here are collaborating on the project. They're working together. Maybe the person right here is they're doing an individual project. They're working by themselves on their computer and their tablet. So a project, like a business project or something that you create, you have, Ah, plan. And this is how you're going to do it? Because you have a goal. You have something that you want to finish complete or a TV. Okay, in this picture up here, looks like we have maybe a group meeting. We have 12345 people, I think, and they're talking of probably about something that's on this paper. Maybe they're architects who knows, or wherever they're designing a building or a game or software, something like that. But they're talking about the project right in this one. This project probably has something to do with statistics, numbers, sales, stuff like that. And it's not a laptop computer. We have a pie chart. We have a bar chart right here. And more information up here. All right. And down here, we just have a nice desk. That's very neat. Maybe it's before they started working on the project, cause after you start working on your project, probably don't worry about being so neat anymore. Okay, so we have in the middle, we have a calendar on top. We have a planner has a calendar inside, but it's kind of like a mobile calendar where you can write all your stuff, right, Your appointments, your notes, stuff like that. There's a pen right here. There is a note pad right here that is standing up a couple of coffee oclock. It looks like it's seven o'clock because it's brighter out. I'm gonna say, seven o'clock in the morning, there's a newspaper, the title of the newspapers business. This looks like some file folders where you can put documents inside. This thing just looks like maybe a mini planter decoration for the desk. That was self Foon. Looks like your phones or your butts. Another pen, another pen, another cup of coffee and the laptop and down here some more. Another document was some numbers on it, so that's a full desk. It's very neat right now. Like I said before. Once they start, it probably won't be so neat. Back to the conversation we go. All right, so we just talked about the word project. Let's talk about end of the week, all right? And since I'm American, I'm gonna tell you what end of the week means in a work environment in America. So we have end of end of this week, and it's seeing the conversation was end of the week. All right, so we'll change this the end of the week. So in in the USA, let me just copy and paste here in the U. S. C. The work week is usually Monday to Friday, right? So the week starts. The work week starts on. One day ends on Friday, and people usually have Saturday and Sunday off. That's especially if they work for, like, a big company. They work for the government stuff like that. So end of the week means Friday means Friday, right? So if its end of the week specifically when you're in the work environment is gonna be the end of the work week, So Friday, maybe Friday at closing time or late in the damn Friday, maybe three PM four PM five PM, depending on the office hours. But end of the week is Friday. Okay, so we have a planner. We haven't calendar right and looks like this guy has. He's looking at a calendar with appointments and different things to do that. It's on his phone. And we have another calendar over there, right? So when Come on, boss told, I told you I'll have the project done by the end of the week. She's saying, You know, I'll have it done by Friday that you know it'll be done. I swear. Right? Okay, let's see. Sarah says, Well, you promised to give me a raise, right? You told me that you would give me a raise. Let's talk about the word raise. All right, So a raise just means more money. Cha ching. Right. So a different way to save raise could be an increase in salary, You could say, earning more money. You could also say higher pain. Right? So either way, we're talking about an increase in money could also be an increasing benefits. Maybe you get more stock options, a better medical plan or are you know, But it's usually something with the money. Right here. We have stacks of coins. It is growing right, smaller, bigger, biggest and out of the top. We have a little plant. So the idea is that the money is growing. This one, the guys walking up the steps, the steps in his company, and he's probably doing work in their pain, him more raising his salary. Here we just have some cash, which is rolled up. Looks like $20 bill, maybe $100 bill there. Maybe that is a $1 bill, but they're just rolled up and we got money. I put this picture because it's kind of interesting. You have coins on the side. On the bottom are a bunch of papers, maybe like data analysis sheets, I don't know, or some sort of reports in the background. You have some coins in some cash money, and here you have a calculator, which is put up on its end. Right? So it's kind of like that, and there's some numbers on the screen of the calculator. But on top of the calculator, there is a spoon, and the spoon is balanced by a potato and some coins, so the coins are in the scoop part of the spoon and the potato is stuck or the spoon is stuck into the The back part of the spoon is stuck into the potato, and it's balancing on the calculator. I thought that was an interesting picture. Okay, back to the conversation. All right, let's see. Fred says I promise you this. If the client is pissed off again, I'm going to terminate you. I think we should talk about the word or the phrase pissed off. What does pissed off mean? You're about to find out. All right, We have some pissed off people here, right? So other ways to say, pissed off. Angry, upset, mad, displeased, Irritated. All right, let's you put some space in between these. Maybe these are different ways to save. Pissed off, right? Something is not going well in the conversation. I think Fred said if the client is pissed off again, I'm going to terminate you. So he said again. Right? So in the past, Sarah probably has done something that become the client. The customer was like, All right, so Fred doesn't want that to happen again. So if the client is angry, the client is upset. If the client is mad, if the client is displeased or irritated, you will be terminated. All right. Some of these pictures this guy makes me think of like a vampire or werewolf with some big teeth there. This lady, she's coming from fiery, fiery. Hell, and she's gonna attack us. She's pissed off this kid. He's pissed off. His good is eyebrows scrunched together, and he's alright. This guy looks like he's probably yelling. It's about something or talking loudly. He's upset. Pissed off this lady. She's got her. This don't mean she's gonna slam them down because she's upset is pissed off. Maybe she's really displeased. Ah, all right, so pissed off means angry, upset man. Displeased, irritated. Something is wrong. Okay. And another vocabulary word. The last one we're gonna cover in this conversation is I'm going to terminate you. Mm. What does terminate mean? All right to terminate. All right. In this situation, we're not talking about the Hollywood movie where a terminate or maybe like a mobster, an assassin where they terminate you and they kill. You know, this Fred is not going to terminate. You're not going to kill Sara. We're talking about the work relationship, right? So other ways to say you're terminated, you could say you're fired is in. You know you can't work here anymore. Uh, I'm letting you go. As in, I'm letting you go out the door. You can't work here anymore. Uh, we're we're eliminating your position. Right. So your position, maybe you're an accountant and we're getting rid of that position. So you're fired, you're terminated. All right, so these are different ways to say you're terminated. We could change that to make it so there it's a statement. Right? So you're terminated. And all of these are complete sentences by themselves. These are just different ways to say that the bosses doesn't want to keep an employee and they want them to get out, not work here anymore. You're terminated. You're fired. I'm letting you go. We're eliminating your position. So in this picture, it looks like this person over here and probably be the boss. And this person just got fired. Maybe they got caught stealing money from the company or something. And she says, I'm letting you go. I don't trust you. Write this one. The boss looks like we're at his desk, and he's explaining to us why you're fired or why were fired. Why? He's eliminating our position over here. Looks like there may be a restaurant or a coffee shop. And the boss is going through his notes. Explain to the lady why she's fired. She's terminated Okay, So this is the conversation. I'm gonna repeat the conversation one more time at regular speed and the target medium for today's actions speak louder than words. Okay, here we go. Last time, Sarah. Come on, boss. I told you I'll have the project done by the end of the week. Bread. Come on, Sarah. Actions speak louder than words. You're always late. Well, you promised me raise actions. Speak louder than words read. I promise you this. If the client is pissed off again, I'm going to terminate you. I'm going to fire you. I'm going to let you go. Okay? Until we have Sarah, the employees and Fred the boss. And things might not be going very well for Sarah, especially if she doesn't start finishing her projects on time. Okay, so today, in this lesson, we took a medium Actions speak louder than words, and we took a picture and we combine them to create a conversation. And we also talked about the vocabulary project. End of the week. Raise pissed off and you're terminated. And we talked about pictures and the different vocabulary from the conversation. Okay. All right. I had a great time teaching this lesson. Remember? Master your idioms. Master your English. Have a wonderful day 4. "an arm and a leg" + vocabulary: and they're just laughing and smiling about something. It was worth every penny to have such a rainbow of flavors in my mouth fly all When they go around the corner and low In this lesson, we're going to talk about the idiom. An arm and a leg will also see a picture and together we're going to create a conversation . Guess what? We're also going to talk about the following words and phrases to charge. Piece of junk. Roller coaster, sardine flavored ice cream worth every penny and rainbow of flavors. Great. This should be an absolutely fabulous lesson. Okay, the first thing we need to do is talk about the idiom. An arm and leg. What does it mean? I'm glad you asked. An arm and a leg is when something is very expensive. Not just a little expensive, but very expensive. The idea is that the joke is that you have to give your arm or your leg to get whatever you're trying to purchase. Something costs a lot of money. Right. Okay. Here's an example. Our neighbor is selling his car. He's charging an arm and a leg. I'm surprised because it's a piece of junk So our neighbor has a car. He must love this car because he doesn't want to sell it for cheap. He wants to sell it for an arm and a leg. He's charging an arm and a leg. Who the word charging is charging. It's a verb here to action. Let's figure out let's talk about what it means. So the verb is to charge, right? What it means is someone are a person is asking for a certain amount of money. So maybe, Oh, in the example, our neighbor is asking for a certain amount of money and he's asking for an arm and a leg. So it's probably a very high amount of money off money, Right? Okay, so let's see here in this top picture, we have two laptops and we have an arm stretching out of the laptop and arms stretching over the laptop. This arm is this hand is holding a bag, maybe from shopping or a store, and this one has $100 bill, so they're exchanging value right. This person wants what's in the bag. This person wants the money till it's capitalism at its finest right there, exchanging value for value and is voluntary. No one's forcing them to do it. Wonderful. In this picture, we can see a guy's back park it. I'm gonna guess it's a guy because guys usually was very often for guys to carry wallets. I haven't seen women very often carry wallets like this. So his wallet is pretty thick, right? So he sits down. He might be sitting like this because it's so thick in his back pocket. Credit cards. Probably cash, maybe pictures of his family, all in his leather wallet. Over here, we just have pictures off credit cards, Visa, maybe MasterCard. Right. So when you pay for something, you can. Someone charges you an amount of money, you pay for it with the credit card or you pull out your wallet, right? So to charge, right the verb to charge. But the neighbors charging an arm and a leg. He's charging a really high price, but we're surprised. I'm surprised because it's actually a piece of junk. So what is a piece of junk? Here we go. So a piece of junk is, Let's see. Do it quicker way here. Piece of junk is a low quality item, right? It's something with poor quality that won't last very long or is something that's very old and unused. No one uses anymore. It's just in bad condition. No one wants it. So if we start over here, this is an old truck, right? It's rusted. It's broken. Uh, it's just sitting there. No one probably has used it for a long time, so if you want to charge out a large amount of money for it, you will be that it's a piece of junk. I don't really want it here. We have junk. This may be in a garage or a storage place. Pictures, a mirror, a picture frame. I think there's some sort of tripod, uh, old baby carriage. I'm clothing to black and white picture, and people might say, Well, it's just junk, you know, we need to throw it away. We need to get it out. And here's another truck in the windshield on this one. Looks like people had their bullet holes. Someone had shot and shot the truck and made bullet holes in the glass. They also spray painted the side with ropes. 66 rt 66. Over here, this is some could say junk that's sitting outside. It's like it's Ah, is that old stove or something that used to be in the kitchen? You have pots and pans and different things all around, and people might say it's, you know, it's junk. It's nothing that anybody really wants is low quality or its poor quality, or it's just really old and unused. So our neighbor has a car, which is a piece of junk, but he's charging. He's trying to get an arm and a leg. He wants a lot of money for his piece of Joan car. Okay, All right, Time to move on to our conversation. Who? We have a picture. Let's talk about it. Yes, yes. Okay, this looks like a nice picture, right? We have Lily and we have Pete and they are laughing. They're probably sharing a joke or something's funny and made them laugh. I guess so. Let's start with Lily will describe her. I would say she's Asian, right? Chinese or Korean? Maybe. I'm not quite sure, but East Asian, for sure. She has dark brown hair. Um, she has an earring in her right year. He has a white sweater on long sleeve white sweater and blue, dark blue jean dark blue pants or dark blue jeans on. And she's smiling and we can see the top section over teeth. She smiles, laughing. Having a great time. Pete is, I would say, white or Caucasian. He has dark brown. Hera's well, it's much shorter than Lily's. He was looking down. His eyes were closed. It's just something is so funny that his laughing right, he has a long sleeve, white or gray T shirt on. He also has blue jeans or, you say, dark blue pants. He has a ring on his left ring finger, and he's Lillian. Pete are sitting quite close to each other. It looks like their shoulders might actually be touching each other. We talk about the environment where they are. It looks like they're sitting outside, maybe near a field with some long grass. And I would say it's it could be towards evening or maybe early in the day. I don't think the sun is directly overhead, because maybe there's some shadows, right? Okay, so if I summarized this picture, I would say there is a couple, our group, a couple of friends they're seeing outside one's a male ones of female, and they're just laughing and smiling about something. Okay. All right. We need to see what they're actually talking about. And Lily is going to start this conversation. She says, Whoa, that lady paid an arm and a leg to ride the roller coaster. Pete, I can't. I believe the guy talked her into pain. $1000 for a three minute ride. Lily, I remember once you once paid an arm and and a leg for sardine flavored ice cream Pete, it was worth every penny to have such a rainbow of flavors in my mouth. All right, so today we're our focus is an arm and a leg. Let's make an army, like, bold wherever it is in the conversation. Okay, Lily also says it an arm and a leg. OK, All right. So I'm gonna repeat the conversation at regular speed. Lily. Whoa. That lady paid an arm and a leg to ride the roller. Coster it. I can't believe the guy I talked her into pain. $1000 for a three minute ride. Lily, I remember you once paid an arm and a leg for sardine flavored ice cream. Pete, it was worth every penny to have such a rainbow of flavors in my mouth. Okay, so it seems like they're laughing and joking and kind of making fun of another lady, the lady who paid an arm and a leg to ride the roller coaster. What is a roller? Coster? I think we should find out. Okay, so this is a roller coaster. And if we want an actual definition of roller coaster, here is the definition, All right. An attraction that consists of a light railroad track with many tight turns and steep slopes on which people ride in small, fast open cars. Okay, so an attraction is something that people want to see. But you Oh, it's a circus all. It's an attraction. Something you want to watch, Something you will pay money for to participate in or what? Okay. A light railroad track would just be the track right here that the, uh the roller coaster runs on right. And there are many tight turns. So it turns quickly writes, Not like a slow toe. Quickly. It's kind of exciting, right? And steep slopes, steep slopes Me. It goes up like this very quickly. Are down like this really quickly. The slope could be going up or could be going down and on which people ride in small, fast open cars and sound like a car you drive on the street. But it's like a little many car that goes on the track, right? It's open because there's nothing covering it. Right? OK, so these are different roller coasters. This one right here is going down a steep slope and they're probably going very fast. And the people like, Yeah, okay. And these people over here, they're going around a curve. This role courses a little bit different. They have big harness, the thing that's coming over their shoulder that keeps them in this seat. So they don't. Why? Oh, when they go around the corner. So this is the harness that keeps them bolted. Still, they stay in the C. M. And these were just some roller coasters down here from a little bit farther away, right, So we can see what a roller coaster is. Okay, back to the conversation. All right, so Pete says, I can't believe the guy. I talked her into pain $1000 for a three minute ride. If the guy I talked her into something. E convinced her. He made her believe that it was worth it to pay $1000 for a three minute roller coaster ride. Okay. And Lily, she says, Well, I remember you once paid an arm and a leg. You paid a lot of money first. Sardine flavored ice cream. What do you say we check out what sardine flavored ice cream would be? Okay, so the idea is pretty simple. It's just ice cream, which tastes like sardines. And what are sardines? These are sardines, their little fish. Right? And people like to eat them. Uh, sometimes I've had sardines before. They're like they're salted, or they put them in a special sauce, tomato size and the mustard size stuff like that. I think they're pretty good. Um, so this is ice cream. There are three different flavors here. Maybe on a main go strawberry and pistachio. Something like that. This would probably be chocolate ice cream. This maybe Maybe it would be what sardine flavored ice cream would look like. You have the cone. This part right here You have ice cream on top, the scoop of ice cream. Then you have some sardines sticking out of it. And is this a real thing? I don't think so. I've never had sardine flavored ice cream, and I would not really like to It's more of a joke, and I think it would be a strange sensation. Okay, so this would be what sardine flavored ice cream is. Ice cream, which tastes like sardines. Okay, back to the conversation. Okay. So Lily said, you know, I remember you paid a lot of money for starting flavored ice cream. Pete says it was worth every penny. What does this phrase? Me. All right. So, worth every penny. So first we have a penny. A penny is just a coin from the United States. Money. It's worth one cent. Right. So $1 is worth 100 pennies. Won $1.100 so you could have 100 pennies. It would be $1. This picture, someone has problem. Probably been saving their pennies, and they don't them out on the table. And they're looking at them right. And let's get back to the phrase worth Every penny means someone is very content to pay a certain price to get the item they want. Right? So if you say something is worth every penny, you're glad to pay the money because you wanted to get what you what you bought. So in the conversation, Pete said it was worth every penny, have a rainbow of flavors in its mouth. And he is worth every penny for him to get the sardine flavored ice cream. So someone is very content. They're happy. They're so happy to buy whatever they did, they're happy to trade the money and get what they purchased. This is this ladies jumping up? All right, I got my sardine flavored ice cream eight. Okay, So worth every penny just means I think it was a good idea toe by that. Trade my money and get that object or that ice cream with that thing. Okay, The conversation, Pete. It was worth every penny to have such a rainbow of flavors in my mouth. So rainbow of flavors Let's see what rainbow of flavors means Okay, so a rainbow is this You know you see in the sky after it rains or the clouds are just right And there's a rainbow of all the colors, right and flavors are different tastes. This might be a lime taste. No Coca Cola Cola taste, maybe an orange flavor and maybe strawberry or apple flavor. Right? So a rainbow of flavors. And if someone says a rainbow of flavors in their mouth, then they would say it would mean wonderful, lovely taste in my mouth. So Pete really likes the sardine flavored ice cream, this stuff, right? And for him when he eats it. Oh, it's like a rainbow of flavors in my mouth. And it might not be these flavors, but it's just a great taste that he really likes. And if someone says a rainbow of flavors, they're trying to embellish, they're trying to make something sound, maybe even better than it actually is. They're trying to make it sound mawr exciting. Okay. All right. Okay. So I'm gonna do the conversation one more time. Regular speed. Here we go. Lily. Whoa! That lady paid an arm and a leg to ride the roller coaster. Pete, I can't believe the guy talked her into pain. $1000 for a three minute ride. Lily, I remember you once paid an arm and a leg for sardine flavored ice cream. Pete, it was worth every painting to have such a rainbow of flavors in my mouth. Okay, so an arm and a leg was the idiom that we used in this lesson. And if you pay $1000 for a three minute ride on a roller coaster, that's a perfect situation. Saying arm in the late because you probably paid way too much. And if he had to pay an arm and a leg for sardine flavored ice cream, maybe it's very rare and only a few people wanted, but they really wanted badly. And so they're willing to pay a lot of money. You know him in the leg. Okay, so in this lesson, we used the idiom, an arm and a leg and a picture to create a conversation. And we also talked about different vocabulary and phrases to charge. Piece of junk, roller coaster, sardine flavored ice cream worth every penny and rainbow of flavors. Okay, I had a wonderful time teaching this lesson. I hope you enjoyed it to remember. Master your idioms. Master your English. See you soon, huh? 5. "at the drop of a hat" + vocabulary: Did you see how good looking he Waas? He was hot. I have all this stuff. I got my bling bling or I got a great purse. My car's awesome. What do you have? This lady is like, Oh, my God! Oh, my God! And low In this lesson, we're going to use an idiom at the drop of a hat and a picture. Who to create a conversation. And we're also going to do vocabulary. We're going to see more pictures. We're gonna learn synonyms for the vocabulary words and hopefully have some fun. All right, let's get started. The idiom we're going to use today as a foundation for building a conversation and exploring other vocabulary is at the drop of a hat. So let's see, you know, what does this video mean? Well, at the drop of a hat means immediately without delay right now. So if something happens at the drop of a hat, it happens immediately right now without delay. This idiom can also mean without hesitation without any planning, like at the drop of a hat. We decided to go on a cruise and travel around the world. We didn't plan it. It just happened at the at the drop of a hat. Okay, here's a word. Hesitation. Mm. That looks like a great vocabulary word that we should explore. But let's look hesitation. We have the word over here vocabulary. And in this picture, we see a lady who is hesitating. She's not sure didn't know that. Yes. What should we do? I don't know. So the definition of hesitation is the action of pausing or D lane before sane or doing something right. No hesitation is the known hesitate would be the verb, the action. So if you stop for a moment, you're you're going, you're making plans. You're moving forward also. Like, uh uh, I'm not quite sure what to do. You're hesitating. That is hesitation. All right. So, back to the definition of at the drop of a hat. Let's see an example at the drop of a hat. The man took off his shirt and started dancing the tango. We were quite confused. Okay, so it's at the drop of a hat. We could have said immediately. The man took off his shirt and started dancing or without hesitation. The man took off his shirt and started dancing. Maybe The man walked up, looked around, whipped out, ripped off his shirt and started dancing. And what did he dance? He danced the tango. Have you guys heard of the word tango? Well, let's check it out, All right. We have the word tangle here, and tango is a kind of dance. It's a kind of dance. Wrong. Argentina And I've never danced the tango. I've seen it. I've seen videos and people dancing it live to, but I've never tried. It seems very intense. And the people that dance, they look like they're in really good shape. The very slim and trim and healthy. And it looked like they're having a lot of fun. Okay. Oh, tango is a kind of dance from Argentina, so in our example, we talked. So we use Thea Idiom at the drop of a hat, and it was that a man suddenly showed up, took off a shirt and started dancing, and we were quite confused. Um, confused means we don't understand what's happening. Suddenly someone pops up and they rip off their shirt and they start dancing the tango. We might say that's confusing. We don't understand what's happening. Okay, let's move on to our conversation. Who? I see a picture. I think we'd better check it out. Okay. Oh, nice and yellow. Two. Okay, so we have a picture. We have Lisa and we have Janet. Okay, let's describe Lisa first Lisa hazard hands by her face like this. And her hands are Palms are facing us and fingers are stretched out. Right? And she has it close to her mouth like this. Her eyes were open all the way, and she's staring with intensity, right? She's staring forward. Looks like she has brown hair. It's hard to tell how long it is. She has a light blue button up shirt that is long sleeve. Long sleeve means that it goes all the way. Who? Your wrists, right? Just like Janet has a long sleeve shirt as well. And Lisa's looking surprised, shocked, excited. Maybe scared, maybe. Ah, whole mix of emotions. Now, Janet. She's very focused on something in front of her as well. And her eyes were open. Her hands should We can't see her palms. We see the back of her hands and she is covering covering her mouth. Huh? Maybe she's shocked. Maybe she surprised. Maybe she saw something that just made her. We'll be startled for a moment. So this is Lisa and Janet. Janet has red hair, and her hair is maybe with gel or some sort of hair spray. I'm not sure the hair is pulled up, kind of like a horn or a point in the in the top front. Janet has two rings on. She has one ring on each ring. Finger ring finger is so we have have the thumb. We have index finger, middle finger ring finger and the pinky finger. Right. Though Janet has quite a bit of jewelry on, she also has a nice watch, a couple bracelets and a big necklace of big pearls. I would guess if those air riel pearls and it would be a very expensive in may be a risk to carry it around like that. No, Jenna has a lot of jewelry. I would say Lisa doesn't have a lot of any jewelry on. I don't think. OK, so if I had to describe this picture in a couple of sentences, I would say I see two women. They're looking at me and they look shocked, surprised and maybe just well of emotion. Okay, so let's figure out what they're talking about. Well, I can't wait. It looks like Lisa is going to start the conversation. He says, Did you see that guy at the drop of a hat? He stole that lady's purse. Bennett. I know. I side, too. Did you see how good looking he waas year? He was hot. Lisa. What? Aren't you worried about the poor lady? She was robbed, Janet. I know that lady. She's a jerk. She can fix her situation at the drop over a hat. All right. First, we're gonna go through and find the idioms at the drop of a hat, and we're going to make it bold. Make it stand out so we can see it easily. No, there's another one. Here it is at the drop of a hat. Make it bold. Okay, So Lisa used the idiom one time and Janet used the idiom one time. And remember, at the drop of a hat, no hesitation. Suddenly, without delay, let me take a pick up the conversation, make sure there aren't any mistakes. And I'm going to read the conversation using regular speed how people would say it at regular speed. Okay. Lisa, did you see that guy at the drop of a hat? He stole that lady's purse. Janet. I know. I saw it too. Did you see how good looking he waas? He was hot. Lisa. What? Aren't you worried about the poor lady? She was robbed. Janet. I know that lady. She's a jerk. She can fix her situation at the drop of a hat. All right, so Lisa uses the idiom first. She said at the drop of a hat, he stole that lady's purse. Now she could have said suddenly you stole that purse. I can't believe it. It happened so fast. He stole that purse without delay. Oh, there was no pause. There was no hesitation. Suddenly, immediately, he stole that lady's purse. Janet, she ends the conversation when she says she can fix her situation at the drop of a hat. And she's talking about the lady so she can fix her situation just like that Very quickly, immediately. No problem. No hesitation. All right, so that is the conversation. I think we should talk about some vocabulary in the conversation and use pictures to help explain it. All right, let's get started. So Lisa says, Did you see that guy at the drop of a hat? He stole that ladies first. All right, probably you may know what a person's, but I'm gonna show it to you and give you other words that mean the same thing. So if we're looking at the word purse, we have the word purse up here. Okay, so these are purses, right? These are bags that ladies would care carry. So here you go. Here's some other words that mean pretty much the same thing as purse. You didn't say handbag. You say a woman's bag, you just say a big you see a shoulder bag. Right? So these are all different ways to say purse, the size and the shape. Well, there's a lot of different ones. I mean, black, one purple or pink, one another black one Looks like leather with a tag on it. Or read one. Ah, blue one with extra straps and the shoulder strap that has a hand strap and the shoulder strap. And, yeah, there are. I'm not a purse expert, but there are a lot of persons out there, and women seem to love them. So here's some other words. Other ways to say Purse and Big woman's bag, bag, shoulder big. And sometimes you see it like this to end big. I want to put a space in between. That's going to depend on what you like. All right, let's go back to the conversation. All right. Janet keeps the conversation going, she says. I know I saw it, too. And when she says it, she's talking about the guy stealing that lady's purse. It means the action of that Roberts, the thief stealing that lady's purse. I saw it, too. I also saw it. Did you see how good looking he waas? We're talking about he We're talking about the robber. The criminal Janet is focused on how good looking the guy is so good looking. Mm. Good looking. We kind of get an idea. Is is something good? It has to do with looks right now, but we look at some pictures and do some extra vocabulary. All right, take a look. Here we are. So we have the word but looking right. Good looking. And here's some pictures. We'll talk about that in a moment. There are other ways to say good looking and in this situation. It was for a man, right? It was a male robber of mail thief male, a male guy who stole stole the person. So I'm gonna give you some other ways to say good looking for men, right? You could say handsome. You can say nice looking. We say attractive. You say easy, well, but this is a phrase easy on the eyes. You could also say stunning. And I think in the conversation can it use another one? He said he said he was heart and hot here. Doesn't mean like temperature, like his body is extremely as a high temperature. No, he was hot. Means he was good looking, that he was handsome, right? So here or other ways to say good looking and some nice looking, attractive, easy on the eyes, Stunning, Easy on the eyes is an idiom, right? It's a group of words that has an extra meaning, like a hidden meaning. From what you see, right, so easy on the eyes means when you look at something, it is very easy to look at. And if women are looking at good looking or handsome men, it's easy for them to keep looking right. So it's easy on the eyes. Stunning is probably the strongest one here. It means, like, really good looking, Really handsome. So stunning. You're, like, shocked at how handsome guy is Are shocked at how beautiful the woman is. It see handsome is going to be for men, right? But all of the rest you could also use for women for females, right? You say, nice looking woman, An attractive woman. Oh, she's really easy on the eyes or she's stunning. All right, OK, but these are all different ways to say good looking and good looking. The word right here could be for a woman or for a man. The only one on this list that could pretty much the only for men is handsome. All of the rest you could use for males or females. All right, back to the conversation. Okay. So, Janet, he was hot. Janet is more focused on the good looks of the thief of the robber Lisa want. Aren't you worried about the poor lady? She was robbed. All right, So she was robbed him. What does? She was robbed me. Let's take a look. All right, So she was robbed I see lives. The person who's doing the robbing, who's taking the stuff is called Robert Wright verb is to rob. And when we put it into a now on the person, it's a robber, right? With sentences. She was robbed, so a robber took her things. Here's some other words. Other ways to say Robert, you could say Thief. You could say Attacker, assailant and mugger. There may be other ways, but these are a few. May put some space in between All right, And mugger is a noun. It's a person. The verb is to mug. So if you mug to someone you stole from you rob them, right? Okay, so let's say it again. Robber Beef Attacker, Assailant. Mugger. Right. So she was robbed. The robber took her things. The thief attacked her and took her money. The attacker grabbed her in Stoller Stuff the assailant was Assailant is just a word for the attacker there person who is using force, who takes something or for someone else to do something. So we have some pictures, right? Let's see. Here's a nice robber. She even has, ah, handkerchief for like a bandanna to cover her mouth right And she doesn't want you to see her face while she steals your money. Right. Then you can't tell. You can't give a good description to the police later on. But she has a gun. And she has, like, red hair and a hat, and he's probably seen Give me all your money. What? Give me all your money. This guy is an assailant or an attacker. Maybe a robber or a thief or a mugger. Yeah, and he's using a knife. You either threaten someone, right? Maybe the person is not giving their money and he's going to stab them. Stab means to take a knife and stick it in someone. So on this one, the robber or the attacker grabbed the victim. The person who is receiving the harm, the victim let them upside down, and he's shaking the money out of them. We can see the cash and coins falling out. So I think this is the guy you could say he was robbed. The attacker grabbed him, lift him upside down and shook all his money out in this picture. Maybe this is a person. Ah, potential robber. Someone who's thinking about robbing someone or attacking someone they have their hand at the back, right above their pants is tucked in to their belt, all right, tucked into their pants at the bottom part of their back is a gun, A pistol kind of loose, like maybe a Glock or a Sig Sauer. I'm not quite sure what kind of gun, but it's hidden right? Maybe we can't see in the picture, but they're going to steal something or take something from someone I don't know. So these are other ways to say robber and pick the situation for the person who was robbing the lady, Right? Let's see. Lisa also says, Aren't you worried? Um, let's see some other ways to say, Aren't you worried? You are? Let's get it. Okay. So aren't you worried right from the pictures over here? We'll get to them in a moment. But let's talk about different ways to say, Aren't you worried? You could say, Don't you feel anxious? Anxious is kind of like nervous. Maybe a little bit Afraid. You just don't feel right. You're worried. Don't you feel a little scared? Aren't you nervous? And aren't you troubled when you move these backup? Right? So let's see, Aren't you worried? Is what they used in the conversation and hear other ways to communicate that same question . Don't you feel anxious? Don't you feel a little scared? Aren't you nervous? Aren't you troubled? Troubled is a nice word to describe when something's kind of stressing us out, causing a stress or a headache. And it's just trouble, right? You feel troubled as well, right? Okay, so these are other ways to say, Aren't you worried? And in this picture of the ladies holding her books and papers and stuff and she might be like, Ah, have too many assignments. I don't want to study anymore. I'm sick of it. So she's worried that she won't have time to I know, travel or do other things that she wants to do. So maybe she's troubled. It seems like a good one. She's troubled because she has to study so much. All right, now this picture guy has his hands over his eyes in his face. Oh, maybe he's just depressed, he stressed out. Maybe he's anxious. Uh, there's going to be some big presentation he has to do for the first time, and he's nervous that he might make a lot of mistakes or something like that. Maybe he's nervous, right? This lady, she has her eyebrows are kind of scrunched up. Scrunched up means when they go like this, right, you're frowning. Um, maybe something doesn't look right. Or maybe like in the conversation. You see someone who looks strange, like maybe they want to hurt someone else or rob someone else. You're You're anxious something. Something about something's gonna happen. You're worried about something? This lady is like, Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Who knows about what it could be? Anything could be. My neighbor's dog pooped on my yard again. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I can't believe it happened. So maybe she's anxious because she has to go over to her neighbors now and say, for the 1/1000 time, can you please clean up the dog poop from your dog? That's on my yard in this picture, we have two potatoes, right? And I would say this potato on the bottom is very worried, very anxious and very scared because this potato as a knife and fork, it looks like the potato that's standing up is going to eat the potato that sitting down well, that's a good reason to be troubled. If you're this potato, you're probably very nervous freaking out right if someone's gonna eat you. All right, back to the conversation. All right, let's see, Janet says. I know that Lady Janet knew the lady that was being robbed, right? And she's our jerk, But let's talk about what is a jerk. So in the conversation, it said, She's a jerk, right? And we're talking about the victim off the robbery, the person who had their money stolen, right? So it was Janet. Let's see. Yes, Janet said, She's a jerk. Okay, here or other ways to see she's a jerk. Similar ways, All right, You say she's a moron. She's nasty. She's really rude. He has no manners right in this situation, Jerk. Janet must have a history with this lady. Maybe it's her former boss or current boss or lead has, I don't know, done something to Janet, which makes Janet not like her. So when the lady got robbed, she didn't care. It was more focused on the good looking Robert. So she's a jerk means it's someone who's not fun to be around because problems. Maybe they hurt you. They say mean things about you. So another word for jerk is more on. Right? Moron can mean stupid, but it could also be an insult to be. It's just someone you don't like, right? Even if they're intelligent, it just there, jerk. There are more on hate them. She's nasty, Nasty sometimes can describe food. It tastes really bad and right. It's nasty. It's horrible. But we can also use nasty to describe a person. And in this case, we're describing a woman. She's nasty and it doesn't mean like you're gonna taste her. And she tastes bad. No, we're describing her personality, how she interacts with people, how she deals with people nasty is rooted people. She's a jerk to people. She yells and screams at everyone. She's really rude, right? It's just another way to say she's a jerk, very similar to she's nasty and she has no manners. Manners. If someone has good man good manners, they're very respectful. They say Please, they say thank you. They respect you and their their words and their action actions show that they respect you , right? They Yes, they respect you. So if this lady has no manners. Maybe she just yells at everyone. Doesn't wait for people to finish talking. She talks on top of them. Someone's talking. But then she just keeps talking and has no manners. Right, So she is a jerk. This lady right here, she just looks really pissed off like she's gonna don't just I guess from now this open Ah , you just she's gonna attack And something happened. Maybe she's the robbers sister, your girlfriend, who knows? All right, But she's pissed off. And if she's treating you this way later, you might say, Wow, she's a jerk. This lady, she's frowning. She has her eyebrows ground stop pushed together Looking at you Maybe she's gonna insult you. How could you do that? I can't believe it. Just so brewed whatever. And so she is a jerk. This lady, she's got her sunglasses on just like maybe she's like acting in a way that she thinks she's better than you and she needs you to know it, or she wants you to know that she thinks she's better than you have all this stuff. I got my bling bling or I got a great purse. My car's awesome. What you have your so poor, you don't have anything and someone else that's talking with her might be like is a jerk is a moron. She's nasty. She has no manners. This lady, he has holding up a watch. She seemed probably focused on time. Maybe you arrived to a meeting one minute late, and she's like, one minute you're costing me money. And so she's kind of a jerk because she's not very flexible at all. Right? Maybe 30 seconds late. She's like, Oh, all right. Can't believe it. You're fired. So you could say she's nasty, right? She's a jerk. Okay, All right. So we made it through this conversation. Well, fabulous. We talked to boat vocabulary words. Earth, Different ways to save purse. We talked about good looking, different ways to say good looking. We talked about different ways to describe, to see a robber, a thief attacker. We talked about different ways to say, Aren't you worried? And she's a jerk. So in this lesson today, we use the idiom at the drop of a hat and we use a picture to create a conversation, and actually we used a lot of pictures because After we created the conversation, there was vocabulary that we needed to explain, right and using pictures who understand vocabulary and phrases and ways to say something is great. It gives us a nice visual. Okay, So just to review once again at the drop of a hat means immediately without delay right now , without hesitation, without any planning, just happens suddenly. Okay. All right. I hope you enjoy this lesson because I had a great time, all right? 6. "curiosity killed the cat": he's gonna Teoh kill someone. Are you a chicken? I sure hope not. Hey, what's up? What you guys doing? But alot in this lesson, we're going to use the idiom Curiosity killed the cat and a picture to create a conversation. We're also going to talk about the following words and phrases Tough motorcycle gang haunted murder to sneak Are you chicken? Okay, so this should be a good lesson. I think we should get started first. Let's talk about the idiom. Curiosity killed the cat, you know? What does it mean? It means too much curiosity can lead to dangerous situations. So curiosity just means you want to know something, right? You're curious. What is that about? What? I want to know more information about that. Well, that seems exciting, right? So too much curiosity. Can lee lead to dangerous situations? And this idiot was basically a warning. It's a warning to keep someone from getting involved. If you get involved with something, you go there, you participate. You're part of the action, right? Curiosity killed the cat is a warning that says, you know, it could be a bad situation for you. Let's see an example who that tough motorcycle gang looks interesting. Curiosity killed the cat. I'd better stay away. Okay. So you know the words that things could happen if I get involved? Where a student, right? Too much curiosity might lead to a dangerous situation. All right. We have the word tough. Let's see what the word tough means. Okay, so we're describing a person or a group of people and about them, right? So tough. Some other ways to say tough are strong, powerful, muscular, Braudy and mighty. All right, so these air different ways to say tough. A tough person. Ah, strong person. Ah, powerful person. Ah, muscular person. Ah, brawny person. A mighty person. So we're talking about physical ability, right? If we look at this guy right here, I would say is probably part of a gang. He has tattoos all over. Tattoos of skulls, I guess, on his fingers and stuff like that. And he's trying to let everybody know that he's a tough guy. You mess with me, there will be consequences. Right? So he's trying to put out the He's trying to put out the image that he's tough and he probably is tough, but I don't think I want to mess around with him. This this guy over here, you may be tough. Or maybe the jar of pickles is tougher than he is. I can't open it. Are right. So he's trying. Maybe he thought he was tough. And then the jar of pickles made him realize that he was weak, right? The opposite of tough would be weak. Not strong, not powerful. And so on. Now this guy don't hear. He's lifting some heavy, heavy weight, right? Look at his face. How focused he is. Her. He's very muscular, right? He's powerful. Look how much weight he's lifting, right? You say he's tough. Seems that he likes the tattoos, too. This lady, I would say she's muscular, right? Look at the tone, The definition of the muscles on her body. You say she's strong. She's tough. All right. Okay, so this is what the word tough means. And in our example, we used the word tough to describe a motorcycle gang. Let's figure out what a motorcycle gang is. So a motorcycle gang is put The definition here, an organized group of criminals that likes motorcycles so organized means they've made a plan to get together and they have a specific goal. They have an idea of what they want to accomplish. Right. Unorganized group of criminals, criminals or people who break the law right. The government really doesn't enjoy them. Government in the police and they try to stop criminals that likes motorcycles. So here are motorcycles, Harley Davidson molars, motorcycles. Very, very famous, right? And here is what possibly motorcycle gang, right? They all have the same kind of leather jackets, similar helmets, and it's hard to tell if they're criminals or if they're just, you know, people that enjoy riding around on motorcycles together are many gifts that they're not criminals based on the bikes. The motorcycles at the hair like this is a big cruising kind of bike for going in long distances, and maybe it's a husband and wife on it. But yeah, this guy down here, maybe he's part of like the Chinese Mafia or something. Where he's a criminal is part of an organized group of criminals, and they like motorcycles. They like to ride around on motorcycles. This picture shows a fist that's coming toward us, right, like someone's gonna punch us and broken glass, Maybe they're trying to rob us. They hit us, and then they dig in our pockets and steal our phone or money. So things that criminals would do you break the law on for people or take things right. So this was our example. Who? That tough motorcycle gang looks interesting. Mm. Curiosity killed the cat. I'd better stay away. And it might seem interesting to walk up to the motorcycle gang and say, Hey, what's up? What? Do you guys do it right? Can I ask you some questions? But I bet the motorcycle game would be like, What do you do and get the hell out of here? If you don't get out of here, we're gonna hurt you. So this is the example. Curiosity killed the cat. It's just a warning to keep someone from getting involved in too much curiosity. Wanting to find out about something too much can lead to dangerous situations. All right, onto of the conversation, right. We're going to use the idiom. Curiosity killed the cat. Here's our picture. And, yes, time to talk about the picture. I see two people, Tom and Jean. We can start with the environment where they are there outside and it looks like they're sitting on a white bench. I would guess it's a white wooden bench they're facing away from us, right? So their heads, they're looking in the opposite in that direction, the same direction we are. They're not looking at us, so we see the back of their heads now. This environment is wow, it's quite nice. I'm gonna guess it's either a very, very nice park or it's a mansion which is like a huge, very expensive house where wealthy people really rich people live. Maybe this is their house. Maybe this is a really fancy hotel, I don't know, but the area is wonderful. Right in front of them is probably a garden with beautiful flowers. It looks like it's a bright, sunny day out. I would say I think they're probably sitting a little bit in the shade because in front of them in front of them, things were really bright and their clothing is not so bright. So it's a wonderful day. It looks like there's a couple sitting outside on a bench. Tom has his arm around Jane as his right arm around Jane closer to her shoulders on top of the bench in his arms resting, his elbows resting on the top part of the bench. Tom has a very nice suit on, and he's dressed up. Could be for a wedding or very some very formal event. Jane has a white dress on. Looks like it's a kind of a fancy dress. She has a bracelet on her left arm. Her left arm is around the back of Tom and it's in front of the the back part of the bench , so it might be a little bit uncomfortable for her. If Tom leans back right, it's gonna pinch her arm between his back and the bench. So Jane and tolerable is looking away. Jane has, I would say, fairly short hair for a woman, it looks like it may be, has highlight swords, died multiple colors, brown and maybe like a lighter brown. Tom is pretty short here on a dark grown, it looks like in Tom's right hand, he's either holding. Or maybe there's a bouquet of flowers. It might be attached to the top of the bench. I'm not sure. Maybe he's holding it, but either way, if I had to summarize this picture I would say there's a couple sitting in a beautiful environment near a park and looking at a mansion, and they have their arms around each other and they're having a grand old time. A wonderful time. No. Let's see what they're talking about. Right? Okay, so Tom's going to speak first. He says, Isn't they? Move my mouse. Isn't that how is haunted? I heard there were three murders their last year. Jane, I want to see the inside. Let's break break into our at midnight. It could the fun Tom Curiosity killed the cat. Honey, we shouldn't go sneaking around there. Jane, I thought I'm married. A brave man. Are you a chicken? I sure hope not. Okay, so the idiom is curiosity killed the cat, and we just use it once in this conversation, Tom says it, we'll make it bold, and it's easy to see where it's in, the placement in the conversation and how it's used. Okay, so I'm gonna repeat the conversation at regular speed all along. Here we go. Tom, isn't that house haunted? I heard there were three murders there last year. Jeanne, I want to see the inside. Let's break in at midnight. It could be fun. Tom. Curiosity killed the cat. Honey, we shouldn't go sneaking around there. Jeanne, I thought I married a brave man. Are you a chicken? I sure hope not. Okay, So looks like they have or she has interesting plans. And he is. Ah, maybe not. So let's see. Let's go through the conversation. Excuse me, but I won't talk about someone. The vocabulary. All right. Haunted. Isn't that house haunted? So we're describing what's going on with houses. It haunted. Let's check out the word haunted, All right. To hear some pictures, they give us an idea of what haunted means and let's talk a boat. The definition right? It haunted means a place that has a ghost or evil spirits living there. So whether or not you believe in ghosts, I don't know haunted his idea that there's someplace where there's something that's not right. Like in this picture, there's a ghost. There's a ghost, it looks like of a woman. And she's transparent. Yes, ghost could be transferred for transparent and firstly, I don't think I've ever seen a ghost, and I won't say they don't exist. But I haven't seen evidence that they do exist. No, I don't know. Um, but the idea and movies and stuff Ghosts haunt a house of the haunted location. And a haunted place is a place that has a ghost or evil spirits living there. Okay, And ghost been on the movie, right? Ghost could be good or they could be bad. Your urine is dark and scary. They tried toe freak you out make you think that the ghost is bad in this one, we have this creepy guy in front carrying this big side. This is called a size. It's a tool that they used to cut down weeds and green and, uh, yeah, in the field. Right. But in a haunted movie, this side with the big thing with the blade on the end is used. You know, they used that kill people. And this is like the perfect picture of a haunted house for Halloween. Or, uh, in a movie. It's haunted. They're scary things. They're they're ghosts and stuff. This picture is just looks like a tunnel inside. Probably an old building. Maybe People think it's haunted place and it's creepy. It's scary. And maybe this is a window or something on the other side is like a ghost or demon or evil spirit or something like that. So haunted just once again, is a place that has a ghost or evil spirits living there. It's scary. It's creepy, and it kind of freaks people up. So the idea is that isn't that house haunted? Probably talk about this house over here. Doesn't have, like, ghosts and stuff in there, right? Were evil spirit. And I heard there were three murders there last year. So what does the word murder me? Let's check it out. It's not very nice. Okay, The word murder. All right. First, let's do the definition. Put it up over here. Okay? Murder is the unlawful, premeditated killing of one human being by another. So unlawful means you broke the law. I think most large was most countries have lies where it says it's against the law to kill people. Premeditated is a big word. Which just means that you planned it, right? You started voted. No worry. I'm going to kill this person or this person. I'm gonna do this. But you made a plan to do the murder, right? So unlawful. Pre made premeditated killing of one human being by another. So that's the definition of murder. And I have some funnier pictures, so they're not humans, But we'll talk about them. Let's see this picture down here. This guy with the knife, I doubt that he's going to stab a pumpkin or stab a watermelon. Probably going to stab a person. And since he's holding it, you'd probably had enough time to think about it and raised the knife upright so it could be premeditated. Maybe he planned it before him. He's gonna Teoh kill someone. Uh, in this picture is like a crime scene. Before there was a dead body here in the police or the people that come in to investigate the crime scene, they drew a chalk line around where the body was before on the floor. Uh, tile is like checkered, which means it's Ah, it's like a blue white blue white pattern, and there's blood all over the floor. So this person, maybe this guy stabbed this person and blood all over the floor, right? And once again, this isn't called a chalk line, and it's just a line that they put her on the body because they use. You don't leave the body laying there for a super long times. That's gonna rotten. People don't want to see dead bodies, so they remove it before they move. It will put a riot liner on the body. So whoever's investigating it Cancino, where the body waas in the blood and all that stuff. Okay, let's get to the not so serious pictures. All right, so this is Kermit the Frog. He is a famous Children's character, and in this picture, he is killing. Stabbing with a long knife ate a potato and their two potatoes. One potatoes like, Oh, the other potato, I think, is already dead, and it's probably ketchup or tomato sauce. It's kind of a funny picture. So Kermit the frog is stabbing and tomato. Maybe they had an argument. The potato insulted his mother and he couldn't take it Any stabbed. Over here we have the same potato that's like, Oh, and looks like another potato that has been stabbed with a mini fork in a mini knife and more red sauce coming out. I'm going toe communicates its ketchup or tomato size. Okay, so murder unloved off the unlawful, premeditated killing of one human being by another or potato killing another potato. All right, Back to the conversation. Let's see. So isn't that house haunted? I heard there were three murders there last year. Jane, I want to see the inside. Let's break in. Break in means you don't necessarily have the key. You may be Break the door, break the window, and then you reach in and unlock the door from the outside and from the inside. Uh, or break in just could be your in a place where you shouldn't be. And it's already been established that no one else would be there. And you go there anyway. Okay. So Tom says curiosity killed the cat. It's probably not a good, good idea, honey. And honey is just like, baby lovely love, my lovely peach pie. It's a term of endearment, someone something that we say to someone that we love. Okay, Mom says we shouldn't go sneaking around there. What does sneaking mean? Well, I'm glad you asked. Okay, So sneaking is from the verb to sneak and let's do the definition. All right. To sneak is to move. So it's an action, right to move anyway. So other people can't see you to hide while you're moving or try to hide while you're moving right? Okay, so let's say this guy over here we have a soldier and sees crawling on the ground on his tummy, right face down. It looks like he has a gun and he has a helmet. He has all the gear and supplies for a soldier, and he's sneaking. Maybe there's an enemy up ahead that he doesn't want the enemy to see him. So he's sneaking. He's dragging his body on the ground slowly is crawling right, so he's moving in a way so that other people don't see him. Also, he's wearing camouflage who's wearing the same kind of colors as three ground in the grass and stuff like that. So it's more difficult to see him down here. We have a cat, we have a bird stain on. It looks like an old ah piece of an orange. And you could say the cat was probably sneaking up to eat the bird or the hunt or to attack the bird. So the cat is sneaking right, and I bet the bird already sees the cat. But maybe before this, the cat was, you know, sneaking kind like a soldier through the grass. Who knows this lady right here? She's hiding behind the bushes. Why? I don't know. She's sneaking. Maybe she's spying on the neighbor and she wants to see what they're doing. But she doesn't want the neighbor to see her, so she kind of hides in the bushes. Right. So the bushes air kind of blocking her. She's sneaking around. Okay. And sneaking is great way to show a sneaking is is what ninjas do you like movies, right. They were masks. They were black. They go out at night and they sneak around and they have a mission, so they don't want other people to see what they're doing, because then the other people probably would get involved and try to stop them. So to sneak is to move in a way so other people can't see you, and it's to hide while you're moving. Okay, All right. Back to the conversation. So curiosity killed the cat. Honey, we shouldn't go sneaking around there. We shouldn't go trying to look in there like we're hiding and creeping around there. Jeanne, I thought I married a brave man. Are you a chicken? I sure hope not. Eso she says. Are you a chicken? And she doesn't mean like actual animal, right? She means something different to let's take a look. So are you a chicken? Another way to ask or to say? Are you a chicken? Is Are you a coward? Coward is someone who is not brave, right? They're not courageous. Another way is are you a yellow belly? Belly? Just means your tummy and yellow belly is ah, phrase which just means chicken. You're a coward. You're scared of things, right? And another way is are you a sissy and assist? You would be like a weak person who is always afraid of things, You know, they're scared. Are you a sissy? So these are other ways to say. Are you a chicken? Are you a coward? Are you a yellow belly? Are you a sissy? And these air questions, right? So kind of like taunting someone trying to get someone may be upset if we don't want to ask a question. And we're already convinced in our mind you could say you're a chicken. You're a coward. Your yellow belly, You're a sissy. So you're saying you know your coward. You're not brave at all. It's on these pictures. This guy, he just looks kind of weak, right? He has his arm is trying to flex his muscles, but there really aren't any muscles. You got this right? Till maybe someone said, Are you a coward? He's like, No, you are not a coward. But he has no strength to be able to really do anything. In this picture is a soldier who is a coward because he's running away from the battle trying to escape. This guy's hiding behind, hiding behind the counter. Someone's that. Are you a chicken? He's like, Yes, I'm a ticket. This guys have something scary. And he ran away from it. Maybe it was like a big spider. And so says why are you such a big chicken? It's just a little spider, right? So he ran away. So are you. Chicken is another way to say. Are you a coward? Are you a yellow belly? Are you a sissy? Are you scared of things? Why are you so weak? Why are you not valiant and brave? Okay, so that was the conversation. I'm gonna repeat it one more time and regular speed. Here we go. Tom, Isn't that house haunted? I heard there were three murders there last year. Jane, I want to see the inside. Let's break in it at midnight. Whoa! I just realized I need to put a T here. All right. Okay. Jane, I want to see the inside. Let's break in at midnight. It could be fun. Tom. Curiosity killed the cat. Honey, we shouldn't go sneaking around there. Jane, I thought I married a brave man. Are you a chicken? I sure hope not. When she says I sure hope not. It's like I really hope you're not a chicken. I really hope you're not weak. I hope you're brave, Right. Okay, so that was our conversation today. We're using the picture and idiom. But once again today we focused on the idiom. Curiosity killed the cat. We combined it with a picture to create a conversation. And also we talked to boat vocabulary. Words and phrases. Tough border cycle gain, haunted murder your sneak. Are you a chicken? Okay. I had a wonderful time teaching this lesson. Hopefully you did too. Remember, Master your idioms. Master your English. Okay? Huh? 7. "end of the day" + vocabulary: I like my money more than you and your ugly bicycle. My teeth are straighter and I'm prettier than you. Mm, Crap is poop. Hello? Today we're going to use an idiom. End of the day. We're also going to use a couple of pictures and we're going to create conversations. Great and of course, will be using Google Image Search to look up some vocabulary. Fabulous. First, let's talk about what this idiom means. End of the day. Other ways to say this idiom are ultimately in the end after giving it some thought. So what it means is after taking all things into consideration, So you would say End of the day after you've thought about something At the end of the day , I've decided at the end of the decision. At the end of the day, I think I'm going to let's see an example. At the end of the day, we decided to reject your proposal to have a pink elephant welcome the new CEO. So if someone came up with the idea that well, there's going to be a new CEO, a new chief executive officer coming to run the company, I think we should have a pink elephant there, huh? I wonder what a pink elephant would look like. Let's check out Google Image search. Let's see if anything comes up for pink elephant. Uh oh, yeah. I imagine this is a photo shop, but it still looks kind of cool. So there's a pink elephant. This one looks kind of riel. Okay, I'm losing focus. Okay, Let's get back to our stuff. Let's be serious. Okay? So at the end of the day, we decided to reject your proposal to have a pink elephant. Welcome. The new CEO don't want someone. Thought it would be wild and crazy to do the welcome party and have a pink elephant. It would be kind of cool, actually. You very unique. Okay, let's move forward. Ready for our first picture. Here it is. Who? Steve and Larry. And, of course, let's describe the picture. So we have the idiom and we have been made conversation. But first we have Steve and Larry and they're to old guys, and they both have hats on. There's a bicycle, the location, the environment, the setting where they are. I would say they're on a residential street. Residential means outside the city, not downtown. If you look around you see trees, I see green grass looks like there's some sort of sign where they can post things. No pictures of dogs and pets and stuff. Maybe this that's where you post lost in phone for a dog that was lost or something. Or maybe for sale. I'm gonna guess for sale because this is a lot of pets that would be lost. Okay, so there's somewhere in a residential neighborhood. I would think this is probably a house back here and they're standing on the side of a street. You can see the street right here. It looks like maybe intersection, because there's a street run in that way as well. So Steve and Larry are talking to each other. It looks like Steve is holding a bicycle. He's a little bit shorter than Larry. His hat is more like a baseball hat, and Larry's hat is a little bit different. Has a short brim. Rim is the part that comes out here, so Steve's Steve has a longer brim, so it would cover his face more if he's tryingto be protected from the sun. Steve is holding onto the handlebars of the bicycle Looks like the bicycle has Iraq in the back, where he can put something on top and may be used bungee cords to strap it down. Do you know what bungee cords are? I think we could look up bungee cords. There are a useful tool for strapping things down, so this is a bungee cord. It has a hook on both sides. You hook on one and wrap up what you need and then stretch its or hold something tight. So this is our bungee cords. Que It's Colbert, and it looks like it's kind of cold out because they both have coats on. Uh, looks like Steve's coats kind of, Ah, gray. Maybe a light blue coat he has. I think he has. I'm not sure if he has a scarf on or he just has the sides of his coat pulled up near his chin, his dark pants on dark gloves on and right. Larry has his hands in his pockets. Larry also has dark pants. His coat is a darker color than Steve's, and it looks like Larry has white hair that's coming out from underneath his hat. His hands are tucked into his pockets. So I would guess that maybe he's not wearing gloves or if he's wearing gloves, maybe just feels comfortable putting his hands in his pocket. We all have different stances how we stand. And maybe when he talks, he puts his hands in his pocket. I don't know the time of day. I'm gonna guess it. It's early morning. Um, maybe these guys are retired, Meaning they don't have to work anymore, so they have to get up early in the morning. They walk, they do some exercise and they chat about life or whatever, but it's kind of cold as well. There's no snow, however, just by how they're dressed up wearing coats and gloves and long pants, I'm gonna guess its a bit chilly out. So if I describe this sentence, if I describe this picture in just a couple sentences, I would say Stephen Larry met in the morning. Steve was going to ride his bike. They stopped for a moment to chat, and the neighbor took a picture of them. Okay, so let's see. What are they talking about? Steve is going to start the conversation. Here we go, Steve, at the end of the day. You're a lousy friend and you have bad breath. Um, not the beginning. I was expected. Larry, is this about me beating you at Texas? Hold at Texas Holdem 40 years ago. Steve off course. You bluffed me out of the pot. That was going to change my life. Larry, At the end of the day, I like my money more than you and your ugly bicycle. Mm. First step. Let's make the idiom bold. End of the day. End of the day. They both say the medium. Okay, before we get into the vocabulary, there's probably some words in here that maybe to understand. Let's do the conversation. Listen, here we go. Steve, At the end of the day, you're a lousy friend and you have bad breath. Larry, Is this about me beating you at Texas Holdem 40 years ago, Steve, of course. You bluffed me out of the pot. That was gonna going to change my life, Larry, At the end of the day, I like my money more than you and your ugly bicycle. I'm gonna make a change here because this is an informal conversation. And when it's informal conversation, it's in my experience, it's much more common for people to say gonna instead of going to So instead of you bluffed me out of the pot, that was going to change my life. Since he is a little bit upset, he's got exclamation to begin. He's got some emotion flowing. It's more likely that he would say, You bluffed me out of the pot That was going to change my life. It just flows. Very nice to use. Gonna Okay, so Steve says at the end of the day, you're a lousy friend and you have bad breath. He could have said ultimately, you know, You know what I'm saying? Uh, this is what I mean, You're a lousy friend and you have bad breath. So maybe they had been talking for a while. And Steve, it just kind of been going back and forth in his head. And he was upset and in his head. He made a conclusion. And so that's why he said, at the end of the day, in conclusion, you're a lousy friend and you have bad breath. Larry, At the end of the day, I like my money more than you and your bicycle. You could say, After all, you know my conclusion. This is how I see things. I like my money more than you and your ugly bicycle. So Steve is Well, according to Steve, Larry is a lousy friend. Um, what does lousy mean? Lousy Here is an adjective. So is describing something, and it's describing what kind of friend and just from the context of the conversation, they're kind of arguing you could see. Well, Larry seems pretty relaxed, but Steve's upset and lousy would be something that's negative. It means you're a bad friend, your horrible friend. You're a low quality friend. Lousy. The best explanation I can come up with for right now at the top of my head is low quality because you could say a lousy car. Ah, lousy writing assignment. A lousy book allows a friend a lousy partner. It's like low quality. They're not meeting your expectations or something has gone wrong. And he's got bad breath, which could be easily fixed with a breath mint either way. So Larry is kind of thinking, you know, why Steve so upset? I think I have an idea. Is this about me beating you at Texas Holdem? 40 years ago. What is Texas Holdem? We're not talking about the state of Texas this so we know what we're talking about. The state of Texas, just the word Texas all by itself. We'll put that in. So Texas is a part of the United States and its his big state down here. And here's its play. However, we're talking about Texas Holdem, which is a poker game. Whoa, did you know that? So a Texas hold em is a kind of game poker. I haven't really played a lot of poker, but people they sit around a table, we can look well, type in plain poker. And so people they sit around the table, they have cards and let's try to get a bigger picture. Okay? And they don't show each other their cards. And they tried to get different combinations of the cards. All the same suit, which is like clubs, diamonds, spades or a number 456745678 or three queens. Three aces, two aces, one of a two to a pair, three of a kind, four kinds. Stuff like that. And they have different rankings on what hand a hand just means the five cards that would belong to you at the end of the bedding and stuff, whoever has the highest, they get all the money in the middle. So in this picture, they're all looking at me cause I won. It looks like she's trying to look at his cards, but it doesn't matter because I've already won. So we already know that I have the best hand or the best group of cards to win the money. These are the chips they're called, and they're different colors, so I'm not sure what they're usually for here. Maybe Red is worth like $10. Blue is five, and green is one or maybe even more. Maybe it's high stakes. Maybe the red is worth like 1000 or $10,000 so this would be a big amount of money. All right, so that is Texas. Hold them. So is this support me beating you at Texas Holdem 40 years ago, he could have said, Is this about me beating you at poker 40 years ago? Same Texas Holdem is a kind of poker and is being very a specific kind of poker, and he could have just said poker or that poker game 40 years ago. Steve, of course, you bluffed me out of the part that was gonna change my life. So there's two parts here that maybe I'm going to explain. Bluff bluffed me and the pot, so pot can be a couple of things. And this is a very specific situation. So in this context can only be one thing, but I'm gonna show you what plot can be, Uh, depending on who you hang out with. Plot can be. Marijuana and marijuana is in most places, many countries, not all. It's an illegal drug. They smoke it and then they get high and stuff like that. So that would be pot. However, if we're talking about pot with poker and Texas Holdem, it's a poker pot. So we saw before briefly in the picture. The pot is all of money that you earn at the end of the poker hand. So when everybody's going around, they're betting that adding a little bit more money, maybe they fold fold means that they put their hands their cards down. They don't want to play anymore because they think they're probably going to lose. So as they go around the table. The amount of the pot grows bigger. The more that people want to play, and they want to continue, they add more chips. Each one of these little things is called a chip. So they add in the poker chips and the money goes, the amount of chips goes higher. If you think have really good cards, that maybe you want to put in more money because then you can raise that the amount of money in the pot, which means you have a potential to earn more money. Okay, so the pot represents money, and at the end, when the tournament or the game is all over, the person can take those chips and exchange them for money. And this would be a huge part of this off a ton of money, okay? And this guy is in love with his earnings. I would be to 18 million. Okay, So in the conversation, he mentioned the poke, the pot and the pot specifically is, Ah, poker pot in the game Texas Holdem. That's the 1st 1 part of the sentence. Then he said, you bluffed me. Um, so when he said, you always talking to Larry. So Larry bluffed Steve, what does bluff mean? Well, bluff is means toe lie, but it's a strategic lie. And when you play the game of poker, you don't want people to think that you have a really strong hand that you're going to win . Because if you let other people know that you have really good cards, they're not gonna want to put more money in the pot to keep betting and make the pot grow. So the potential to earn a lot of money is down. But if you can convince people that they have a better hand, they have better cards and you dio you're bluffing them. So if you have a horrible hand, but you keep making moves and playing like you have a really strong hand other people might be like huh? You know, he could be bluffing, but I don't know if he has a really good hand. If he has really good cards, then I don't want to play. So I'm just gonna fold. I'm gonna put my hand my cards down and not play anymore. So bluff is specific. It means to lie. It's like misrepresenting what you have and it's a strategic. It's Ah like it's done on purpose to try to make other people think that you have a weaker hand, then you actually have because then if you have a strong hand, or if you can convince them to stop plane, then you win. Okay, so I guess the hand or that pod the amount of money on the table could have changed their Steve's life. But Larry bluffed and Steve lost. All right. So Stephen, Larry, they might have been friends once. I don't know. Maybe they're not friends anymore, because Larry says, I like my money more than you in your ugly bicycle After all is said and done when things were over, I like my money more than you and your ugly bicycle. Okay, all right, so that's conversation on one. Let's move on to conversation number two. And let's describe the picture. We got smiling people who say There's three people here want to our obvious We look down here, there's a hand hold in. I don't know. A napkin. Maybe I'm not sure. Flower piece of paper, I don't know, but there are three people at this table. The environment it looks like a booth at a restaurant. You can sit out of booth. I'm gonna show you what a booth is if you're going to a restaurant. And maybe the waiter said, Oh, where would you like to sit? Sit in a booth? So a booth is like to sofas that face each other, right? So this is the booth. It's usually more comfortable than chairs, and it's nice to relax. So this is 123 booths right there. So in the conversation, the people are sitting at the booth, and it's not a chair with tables. Okay and second wooden table. The booth is a dark color behind looks like a glass window, but it's a special kind of window where you can't really see through it, but it lets light in. It probably allows for more privacy. We have Becky and we have Pam, and let's start with Becky. I guess Becky has a big smile on her face, all right, looks like she's actually looking at the camera. So whoever is taking the picture is this person or someone else. She's smiling. She's in a good boot. Looks like the dress code here, or the level of dress they're wearing is business, so they both have, like suit coats, they're called or a blazer sometime. Dress a dress coat on and underneath this I think I'm not expert or women's clothes. I think she has a blouse. It's a dark colored blouse. The coat part is a light colored like a light brown, maybe a like a white and Becky. He has curly hair and it's short, but it's curly and it sticks out. Goes poof. Um, Pam. Let's see. She's dressed similarly to Becky. She has a similar kind of coat, a little bit different color in different, different style. It's great. Color her a shirt or her blouses looks kind of like a greenish like a like a green color. She has glasses on. She's also smiling, smiling, big, showing her teeth. Her smile is a little bit different in Becky's. Becky's is like an open mouth smile. Ah, right in pounds is more of a closed mouth smile, he writes. Says they're both showing the teeth this little bit different smile. Pam has glasses on it. Looks like the time of day is probably I'm gonna say morning or midday because it seems bright out a lot of natural light. Natural light issues like that comes straight from the sun. You don't have to use a lamp or bulbs or some sort of artificial light toe brighten up the room on the table. I would say this is like a business meeting, right? They have their planner. This whole thing right here is a planner. It will fold shut, have probably has a notebook calendar on it where it has all of the different days of the week. And they can, uh, update their schedule and write things for their appointments. I see three cell phones on the table. We look closer at this one. It looks like it's 10. 24 I'm gonna guess pretty pretty easy to say it's gonna be in the morning. 10. 24 AM is a cup of coffee over here. It looks like a book here. Or a journal. Or maybe another planner. I'm not sure. Uh, is a pen. Maybe that is part of a plate or an ashtray. I don't know. On ashtray is just where people tap their cigarettes and the ashes fallen. Okay, lets see what they're talking about. What What Can it be, Becky? At the end of the day, my teeth are straighter, and I'm prettier. Then you Hmm? What a way to start, Pam. Who cares? I'm much wealthier, and I'm taking over your puny company. Becky. What? The rumors of your company buying ours is true. Impossible. Pam, At the end of the day, we eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast. Who? The mood is a little bit different than what the picture appears. Uh, if I don't think I did a short description of the picture, So here's what the short description would be. Looks like a business meeting at a restaurant. We have at least three people present, and they're talking about something that involves business, and someone took a picture. Okay, back to the conversation. Let's make the idiom bold. We'll make it bold, and we'll make it jump out so we can see it. Okay, at the end of the day, So Becky says at the end of the day, my teeth or straighter, and I'm prettier than you in conclusion, uh, when all is said and done, When push comes to shove, my teeth are straighter and I'm prettier than you Hmm, Pam. She also used the idiom. At the end of the day, we eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast when all is said and when all is said and done when everything's finished, when it's all done, when it's all complete, we eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast. MM. Few things happen in this conversation. Let's talk about some of the expressions that are used. One is taking over, and this is a specific context cause we're in a business context. A business meeting looks like from what we got in the conversation. Pam and Becky work at different companies, so separate businesses. But there's going to be a change. Pam's company is taking over Becky's company. Whether it was Pam's company bought them, whether Becky's company was just hurting and they sold the Pam who knows. But something's happening, and Pam's company is going to be taking control. Taking over Becky's company and something about Becky's company, Pam uses the word puny Um, it's a puny company. Let's put puny into Google search so we can just get a visual understanding of what it means. Puny, puny means small like insignificant. It's not important. So if these people are gonna They're gonna arm wrestle while this guy's arm is huge and he's gonna his opponent has a puny, weak, skinny little arm from I would say, this guy's gonna win. Hey, go! Same thing. Look at how big this guy's armors. And this guy's kinda small and puny compared to this, All right, so puny just means small and puny is usually a negative thing. I mean, it just means small. You could say this is a puny puppy. Maybe you're comparing it to other puppies that are much bigger. In my experience, the word puny has a negative meaning to it. So in the conversation, that's exactly how it fits your puny company. So it's kind of an insult. Your small, insignificant company, your puny company, Becky says. What? The rumors of your company buying ours is true. The rumors of your company taking over ours is true. Rumors she could say, the information, the stories, what people are talking about. Rumors are things that people say, and we don't always know if they're true or not. Let's put in rumors maybe we can get a visual. So rumors are huh? Did you hear that? their company is gonna buy our company something like that. So rumors are things that people is information that people share and specifically, rumors it's not always sure if it's true or for partly true kind of true, 100% false, 25% truth, 75% lie. That's the thing. That's the challenge with rumors. We don't always know if it's true. We don't always have enough information to see if a rumor is true or not. So there's information going around that people are talking about rumors that Pam's company is gonna buy Becky's company. Guess what? The rumors are true. Becky doesn't like it, she says impossible. And she probably likes it even less because she just insulted Pam. Remember my teeth or straighter and I'm prettier than you. That's an insult she's seen. Pam's not Is Pretty in Pam's teeth are not a straight, which I would say is true. I'd say Becky's teeth are much are straighter than Pam's and look nicer than Pam. But sometimes there's a lot of things that even if it is true, it's not kind to say it's not appropriate to say so. Just leave it in your head. There's no need to make extra drama in the situation. Pam finishes the conversation by saying, At the end of the day, we eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast. There are two things going on here. First we have the adjective crappy is describing what kind of business, but he works for. But there's also a phrase in here, which is kind of interesting. Eat for breakfast, and when we talk about eat for breakfast, eat something for breakfast. We're not talking about fruit, cereal, toast, eggs, whatever. This is specific. We eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast. Crappy means low quality, lousy, bad poor performing. Just not good. Crappy can be used with just about anything. Crappy friend, crappy house, crappy music, crappy nightclub, crappy table, crappy book. Whatever. Inside the word crappy is the word crap. And let's look at it on Google sorts. Just cause it's good to know what words mean exactly. Crap is poop. Crap was another word for poop, right? This looks like it's funny crap to play a joke on someone. Okay, but crap is poop. And so if you're saying something is crappy, you're saying it's very low quality It's kind of like poop, right? Poop is garbage, and it's horrible is stinking smelling. We don't want anything. So if you're describing something, is being crappy. Yeah, it sucks. So at the end of the day, we crappy businesses like yours for breakfast. And when she says we eat crappy businesses like yours for breakfast, she doesn't literally mean we two and swallowing eat businesses like yours. No, she's talking Mauritz like a challenge. It's like a put down. It's an insult. We take over businesses like yours like no tomorrow we just We come in and we control things and we your business is no challenge for us. We come in and we take over and it's just easy. We ain't you guys for breakfast. It's easy. It's nothing. So that's kind of a useful one. If, uh, you're playing basketball's or there's a basketball on your planning, it's another team. Uh, you we can eat you guys for breakfast. Ah, we eat players like you for breakfast. You're just saying you know we're better than you and we can defeat you much easier where this conversation will go in the future. I think Becky is gonna be apologizing. Maybe she won't be working there anymore. Maybe she'll quit. Either way, she's going to feel uncomfortable, awkward, strange and probably regret. Seen what she did, because Pam could just end up being her new boss. When there's a merger, when two companies come together or one company buys another company, lots of things can happen. They might get rid of the old employees they might change. Who works for who who's boss is where, where the employees are, what section they are. So Becky's probably like silence is golden. Remember that idiom? Why did I say anything? Well, I think Pam is the one in control here. She has the power position. All right, that's the end of our second conversation today. We use the idiom, end of the day and some pictures, two older fellows and two business women talking, and we created conversations. I had a wonderful time teaching this lesson. I hope you enjoyed it and have a wonderful day 8. "in touch" + vocabulary: please would be like, Do you crazy kids store my chickens and okay, Hello. Today we're going to use an idiom in touch. We're also going to use a picture and we're going to create a conversation over eight first . Let's talk about the idiom in touch. So what does it mean? I'm so glad you asked. We use in touch when we want to stay in contact or communication with someone. So we want to have an ongoing relationship with them where we can communicate. We can use in touch in different ways. We can say Stay in touch. I need to stay in touch with you. Be in touch, OK? I'll be in touch. Keep in touch. Henry, please keep in touch with your mother or get in touch. Okay? I'll get in touch with you. So there they all have in touch in them and they're very similar. The 1st 3 are basically maintaining the relationship. You have been in touch in the past. You have communicated in the past. Maybe not frequently, but you've committed communicated somewhat and the the 4th 1 is a little bit different. It's possible that you could have communicated in the past, but for whatever reason, right now, you need to establish contact with that person. Maybe there's a business deal and arrangement. Something that needs to be talked about. Okay, I'll get in touch with you. Uh, yes. We can get in touch to talk about the business deal or something like that. So therefore, different ways to use it, but they're all pretty similar. It just means when we want to stay in contact or keep in communication with someone. So let's see an example. If you don't get in touch with the lawyer, I won't be able to stay in touch with my ex wife and kids. So we have two examples here. We have in touch and in touch. The 1st 1 uses Get in touch. So you need to make contact with the lawyer so we can communicate, right? And if you don't do it, then I won't be able to stay in touch. I won't be able to maintain communication with my ex wife and kids, so you need to call the lawyer. You need to text the lawyer, email something to get in contact to get in touch. And then I could stay in touch with my ex wife and kids. I can keep communicating with them. All right, so now we're going to use the idiom and a picture and create a conversation. I think First, let's take a look at the picture and we're gonna talk about it and describe it. Okay, so in this picture, I see two. I would say teenagers, You could say two boys are. I don't think they're very old. I'd say. Probably two teenagers, two male teenagers or two guys standing and they're leaning against a fence. I'm not sure. Maybe it's a deck. Maybe it's the front or the back part of the house, and there's a deck. You can see there leaning against it, the environment and the background. I'd say they're close to a woods and woods or a jungle. I know a lot of trees, a lot of green lot of vegetation, which just means leaves and trees and stuff like that in the background and doesn't really look like they carried care too much about the trees and leaves and stuff. Looks like they're both kind of focused downward. Maybe they're concentrating and very focused on their conversation. So, Pete, he has a blue short sleeved shirt on and looks like he has tan colored pants. We can't see if their shorts or long pants, because we could only see his up the upper part of his body. Pete has, I would say, short here, and it's a dark brown hair. He's not wearing a hat or anything, and it looks like we can just barely see that he's wearing a watch. All right, so it's pretty simple outfit. Simple clothing. Rick has a backpack on. That's a big difference that you could see between Rick and Pete and the backpack is the pocket in the back of the poach in the back is multicolored, kind of like a rainbow colors. But the main part of the backpack is looks like a dark red, maybe in maroon, which is like a even darker red. He's wearing brown pants as well, but pants or shorts we don't know. But his pants are a little bit darker brown than Pete's. Rick also has on a looks like a T shirt. Maybe it's a caller right there, so it might be like a polo shirt with a few buttons in front, kind of like this one. Rick has pretty short hair as well. Not super sure, I'd say a little bit longer than Pete's and Ricks. Hair color is brown, but it's not as Dark Brown as Pete. Okay? And we can't tell if he's wearing a watch or jewelry or anything like that, because we can't see his hands. All right, so let's see what they're talking about. Looks like Pete's going to start the conversation. Oh, and before I do it, I almost forgot. I'm gonna summarize, summarize what I see in the picture. So if I just quick saw this picture and I only wanted to describe it in a few sentences, I would say, Okay, I see two young guys lean against Ah, the railing of a deck looks like in there staring downward towards something on the ground . Or maybe they're having a conversation, and it looks like there near a big woods or forest. Okay, so let's see what they're talking about. So Pete starts the conversation after we steal the prize chickens. From there, Coop will need to lay low. Rick, I agree, will have to keep in touch through our secret channels. Pete, how loud Do you think the chickens will be? Does the farmer have a shotgun? Rick, stop worrying so much. I'll be in touch when the chickens are plump. All right. First part is we're going to make the idioms bold. Annoy says in touch right here. Make it bold. So we can. It stands out another time over here. And it looks like Rick is the one that uses the idiom both times. Okay, so I'm gonna say the conversation at regular speed. Follow along, Pete. After we steal the price, chickens from their coop will need to lay low. Rick, I agree. We'll have to keep in touch through our secret channels. Paint. How loud do you think the chickens will be? Does the farmer have a shotgun? Rick, stop worrying so much. I'll be in touch when the chickens are plump. So Rick is the 1st 1 to use the idiom. He says we'll have to keep in touch through our secret channels and we'll get to what secret channels are in a minute when he says, keep in touch, you could say we'll need Teoh, maintain communication or keep communicating with each other. And how with our secret channels will be right back to that. Rick also says in touch again. This time, he says, Be in touch. Last time he said, Keep in touch and is quite similar. Uh, I'll be in touch. This means that Pete's not exactly sure when Rick will contact him, but Rick will be in touch. He will contact him. He'll communicate with him somehow. All right, so let's talk about some of the vocabulary in this conversation. Let's start from the top. So we have prized chickens. These aren't just regular chickens. I'm quite sure we know what a chicken is, but let's look it up. Make sure, All right? So if I type in chickens, all right. Yeah. Everyone knows what a chicken is. Right? But these are not regular chickens. They are prized chickens. Mm. What do you think that means? Well, sometimes is very common in the United States. We have what's called a fair, uh, and let's see if it shows up affair, which is like a carnival. And sometimes the people that work in the carnival or they have all the rides and stuff, they travel around to different cities, and they set up all the stuff and then, ah, people can come and they pay and they can have fun and laughing all that stuff. But also, sometimes people bring their animals to let's see if it shows up, and it's pretty common to call the county fair. And people will bring their farm animals and they will, ah, compete with each other. So let's see down here looks like they brought a cow and a baby cat for baby cow. And so they'll have judges that go around and look at the animals and see which are the best quality, which are the nicest looking, which would be the most valuable. And then they give them prizes. They might give them like a blue ribbon, which means that they're the number one. So if someone got a blue room in blue ribbon price, that would mean that they they want and they had Maybe the best cow are the best chicken or something like that. So in our conversation, we're talking about prize chickens. So looks like Pete and Ryker looking at a farm and there, thinking they want to steal the price chickens. Who knows if they want to eat them, sell them or whatever, but they want to steal the chickens. And not just regular chickens. The prize chickens, the best chickens, the one the chickens that won an award at the county fair. All right. And they're gonna steal the price chickens from their coop s. So what is a coupe? Let's type in chicken coop. A chicken coop is just where the chickens sleep and live, so you can see that there is a fence might not be super clear, but there's a wire fence, so air and water and we can see through it, but the chickens can't get out of it. So this would be called a chicken coop. And if it's inside part, then there probably like shelves where the, uh, kinda like shelves where the chickens can stand up on top and then they sleep. And then they lay their eggs and all stuff like that. Chickens. All right, so let's go back to the conversation. So after we steal the price, chickens from their coop will need to lay low. So after we take those marvelous, valuable chickens from there, it's like a chicken house, you know, where would we just saw where the chickens live? will need to lay low. Um, what does lay low when you say it lay low? If someone wants to lay low, they've probably done something illegal or bad, or at least something that they don't want to get caught for. They don't want someone to catch them and say, Hey, you know you're in trouble, something like that. So after pediatric steal the price chickens, they need to lay low because if they don't lay low than everyone might know that they stole the chickens. And since these are prized chickens, the farmers probably gonna be really pissed off and probably call the police if you like, Do you crazy kids store my chickens and I gotta pay for them or something like that. So lay low means to, like, hide to maybe stay at home to stay in your room. Don't go outside where people can see you, or maybe run off to a different place where you know, so you don't attract a lot of a lot of attention. All right, so Rick will have to keep in touch through secret channels. So after they lay low, they steal the chickens and then they gotta hide. They don't want. They need some time to pass before they either sell the chickens or move the chickens. So they laid low and we'll have to keep in touch through our secret channels. Secret channels while channels of communication are just ways to communicate, so maybe they have, they use a secret cell phone. Nobody knows the number or they have secret email accounts. And nobody knows who the who's the email belongs to or may be. They I don't know. They write letters in code to each other or they make marks on a tree. They have some secret way of communication that other people won't understand, right? So those are just secret channels, hidden ways to communicate. So Pete goes on. How long? How loud do you think the chickens will be? I bought the tickets will be very loud, especially since they're uncomfortable. Haven't been stolen from their nice, comfortable chicken coop. And here's the big question. Does the farmer have a shotgun? Probably good idea to figure that out. So what is a shotgun? This could be This could make or break their plan. So let's look up. What is it? Shocking. So we have lots of different kinds of guns and see if I can find specifically. Ah, here we are. Yeah, let's leave this one. A shark gun. Ah, Okay, So this is a shark gun. See, if there's maybe any other pictures might be a little bit better. Okay, so a shotgun is a type of hunting weapon, right? And the shocking a specific that when it shoots out, it doesn't shoot just one bullet. It shoots a bunch, depending on the kind of shock to the kind of cartridges it might be little babies, tiny little metal or lead pellets. Or could be like buckshot or for shooting geese or ducks. Word big, big steel balls inside. Either way, the idea of a shotgun is that it doesn't have one bullet that shoots straight out. And it's just one piece of metal. No, it has a whole bunch of small pieces of metal or lead inside or steal that. When they come out, they spread out. So when they spread out, there's a much greater chance of hitting your target. Now. Shotguns aren't met for meant for long range shooting, but up fairly close. If something's in front of you and you shoot it with the shop shot cut. You're probably going to hit it because there's not just one piece of metal coming out. There are many pieces of metal coming out, so this is a shocking bang. All right, back to the conversation. So does the farmer have a shotgun? If the farmer does have a shotgun is probably right close to the door. Maybe the farmer has problems with foxes or wolves or dogs or something, trying to steal their chickens and eat the chickens so the farmer might keep a shock on close by so he can shoot whatever animal or people that were coming to steal and mess with his chickens. So if the farmer has a shotgun, that would be bad news. They may need to rethink their plan to steal the prize chickens, but Rick Rick doesn't seem to care. Stop worrying so much. I'll be in touch when the chickens are plump. Huh? What do you think plump is? Ah, plump chicken is the opposite of a skinny tickin. So let's see what kind of pictures we have for chickens. Let's see. Oh, I would say this right here is a nice plump chicken right. If you pull off all the feathers and you, will you kill that, you pull up all the feathers and you want to cook and eat it. The pieces of meat are very plump. There's a nice big, big pieces of meat, and it's easy to cook and nice to eat. So a plump chicken kind like a fat chicken, But just like big size is gonna provide a a great meal. All right, so it looks like Pete and Rick are gonna wait until the chickens air plump. So maybe they have a plan. Maybe they're gonna sell the plump chickens to someone who loves to eat chickens. Or maybe they're just waiting to make their own meal. I don't know. So this is our conversation, and it was Pete and Rick and I will summarize the conversation in just a couple sentences. Pete and Rick are chatting about their plan to steal some chickens from a farmer, and they're also making plans. What will happen after they steal the chickens? They might have to lay low, and they need to do some more research because they need to check and see whether the farmer has a shotgun Okay. So today we used the idiom in touch and a picture. And we use that picture and the idiom to create a conversation. Wonderful. Exciting. An incredible. All right. I had a great time teaching this lesson. I hope you have a fabulous day. See you next time. 9. "never mind" + vocabulary: just like, Oh, that's so cute. And look at the focus on this dog's eyes. He's like, there is in the process, like all Wow, that's incredible. How did you know what? My card? Waas Hello. Today we're going to use an idiom. We're going to use the idiom. Never mind. We're also going to use a couple of pictures. Great. We're going to combine the idiom and a picture and create conversations. Wonderful. Let's get started with the idiom. Let's make sure we understand what this idiom means you want to use or you use. Never mind when you want someone to know. Something is not important. Also you use. Never mind when you get tired of trying to explain something to someone. Here's an example. Hey, Peter, please wash my car and bring my clothes to the laundry. Never mind. I'll do it myself in this example, and the type of Internation ahead of my voice. My attitude. I would say it's a 2nd 1 I get tired of trying to explain something to someone. What I'm trying to explain is that I want Peter Toe wash my car and bring my clothes to the laundry. However, he may ignore me a lot. I may say it over and over again, but it never gets done. So I'm like, uh, never mind. Don't worry about it. I'll do it. Don't need to think about it. I'll take care of it if we wanted to make it sound Mawr, like the first part of the definition. You want someone to know something is not important. Then I might say it like this. Hey, Peter, please watch my car and bring my clothes to the laundry. Never mind. I'll do it myself. And in this part, never mind off. Don't worry about it. It's okay. Maybe I walked in and I just Peter was working. I didn't know he was so focused. And I just blurted out, I just said automatically, please watch my car and bring my clothes to the laundry. But then I looked up and I saw he was really busy. So I'm like, Oh, never mind. It's not that important. Don't worry about it. I'll do it myself. So that's how that's what never mind means, And that's how we would use it. Okay, let's move on. We're going to use a picture, of course, and we have the conversation part over here in the idiom. In a moment we will make the conversation. But first, let's talk about the picture. I see two people. Let's start with the location and the environment. I would say they're on a beach. It's daytime, but it's very late in the day. I would say it's sunset. It's a beautiful sunset in the background so we can see that the sun is setting. I'm pretty sure there on the beach, and it looks like that's water in the background. So right up front is probably sand, the sandy part of the beach. And then outfront is the water. The water looks pretty calm, but it's a wonderful day and it's a great time to be out on the beach. So we have Fred and we have Stacey and they are jumping in the air and there it's like they're frozen in the air. Well, now we can't see their face. We can't see what kind of clothing they're wearing. We can't see the colors. We can't really. We don't have a lot of details. However, What we do have is their silhouette. What is a silhouette? A silhouette is the outline. Right? So they are dark right? The light is in the background, so it's coming behind them and we can't see the details of what they look like. We can see the outline. The outline is the outer line of their body, right? So we can see two silhouettes up to people here, Fred and Stacy and looks like Stacy has longer hair because it's flying up in the air. And I would say her hair is a mix between curly and wavy. Looks like Fred has straight hair. It's a little bit longer, not not as long as Stacey's, but I would say it straight hair. And it's balancing up in the air because he's bouncing up in the air. We can describe their body movements, even though we can't describe their clothing and stuff. It looks like they have their feet kicked up behind them. Their knees are bent, both of them. Fred is wearing shoes. I'm not sure if he's wearing socks or not, but he's wearing shoes. Stacy is barefoot, so she has no sandals or shoes on her feet. It looks like Stacy has her hands outstretched and her fingers open. Fred has his arms outstretched, but his fingers are closed and it looks like Fred has probably shorts on. I'm not sure if he has a shirt on or not, but we can see the strings on the front of his shorts that he would use to tie the shorts so they don't fall down state. She looks like she has a shirt and shorts as well. And if I had to describe this I to summarize his picture, I would say it's a beautiful sunset in the background and there are 22 teenagers jumping in the air and someone took a picture of them while they were stuck in the air and we can see the silhouettes of their body. Okay, let's get back to the conversation. The juicy part. Let's figure out what they're talking about. OK, so Fred's going to start the conversation, he says. How long do you think we can defy gravity and stay like this Stacy book? And he says, one more things has never mind. Stacy, it's OK. I think we can stay frozen for as long as our audience once, Fred, I think I look like Peter Pan. Never mind. You wouldn't understand Stacy, You're no Peter Pan. You're more of a cute, cuddly Chihuahua. Okay, let's go back to We're gonna make the idiom bold. We have one here. Looks like Fred is the one who says, Never mind both times. All right, It's going to take a quick check. Make sure I don't have any mistakes. We'll fix him anyway. Okay. Here's the conversation at regular speed. Fred, how long do you think we can defy gravity and stay like this? Never mind, Stacy. It's okay. I think we can stay frozen forest long as our audience wants. Fred, I think I look like Peter Pan. Never mind. You wouldn't understand. Stacy. You're no Peter Pan. You're more of a cute, cuddly Chihuahua. All right, so Fred in the first part says, How long do you think we can defy gravity and stay like this? Never mind. You could have said Ah, nothing. Don't worry about it. Forget what I just said later on. Peter also says never mind again. He says I think I look like Peter Pan. Never mind. You wouldn't understand. Forget it. Don't think about it. Don't worry about it. Disregard what I just said. You wouldn't understand. All right, so let's talk about some of the vocabulary in this conversation. First, we have defy, defy and here it's weaken, defy gravity, and here defy means to go against, to do the opposite off, to use your energy and resource is power influence to go against something. And if we're talking about gravity, well, grab. It is very difficult to go against gravity. So they're trying to defy gravity. We're trying to go against gravity. So what is gravity? Maybe we'll take a look at some pictures that can help us understand something. Type in gravity. Gravity is the force on the earth that pulls you towards the earth. Right. So if you jump up, you come down. If you throw a ball up, if you watch the ball and then it comes down. Right. So in this picture right here, we have a drop of water. Right? So first there was a drop that came down and fell into the water. And the opposite reaction was that the water splashed up a bit. So this drop of water went up. And where is it going to go? It's going to go back down because of gravity. gravity is just the force that pulls things towards the earth. And if we have, like a rocket, the only way it can overcome gravity to defy gravity to kind of defeat gravity is to use these powerful rocket boosters, right and so much fuel that it causes somewhat propulsion. Propulsion means push right so that it pushes the rocket I up into the air and the spaceship goes up so it can defy gravity. All right, let's go back to the conversation. So how long do you think we can defy gravity and stay like this? In other words, how long do you think we can fight gravity and not come back down to the earth and stay like this when they say Stay like this, they're talking about Stay in the air like they are in the picture, Stacy says. It's OK. We can stay frozen for us long as our audience wants. So we'll talk about two words here, frozen and audience. If you look up frozen, the first thing that would pop up is I'm imagining something cold. Or like the movie frozen right where everything was cold. It was cold and frozen, and snow and ice and stuff like that, right? So this is frozen. These air, like it's unicycle, right? Or pieces of snow that they zoomed in on so frozen means very cold, But it can also mean something else. And in the conversation we're talking about frozen. We're talking about staying in one place like freeze. I give the police they're chasing a criminal, and they say, Stop, freeze police. They don't want him to suddenly turn into a unicycle, a piece of ice. They want him just to stop moving so they can watch and see what he's doing. Freeze. So what state? She says. I think we could stay frozen for a long as the audience wants. I think we can stay in this position, not without moving. Okay, so let's look up. Audience audience is a group of people who are see if lowered. Here comes audience is a group of people who are watching something all right. Internet is, though, or my Internet. It's though, Okay, so as the picture loads, we can see people are focused on something. All of the chairs are facing that direction, and the people are facing. They're looking towards that direction, so This is the audience. I don't know what's up on stage or what's in front. Maybe it's a concert. Maybe it's some sort of show, but this is the audience. You could also call them Spectators. Um, a little bit different is that Spectators would be more usually more for like a sports event in my experience. So we have Spectators to the soccer match or football match, depending what country and you are in what you call the sport. So you could still say they're the audience, but I think it would. It seems more comfortable to say Spectators or the fans, but if you go to a concert or a movie, you could say the audience. Okay, back to the conversation. Fred. I think I look like Peter Pan. I'm pretty sure you guys know Peter Pan is He's Thea from the kids fairy tale. Let's look him up. Peter Pan. All right, so this is Peter Pan. He's a kid. They went off to never never land and they never grow up. They never grow old, and they have fun, and somehow they're fighting these adult pirates. But the Pirates could never win, and it's just a happy time. Okay, so this is Peter Pan. So Fred thinks he looks like Peter Pan. I might have to agree a little bit, at least by the silhouette. The outline of his body, Right? Sure, he's a boy and he doesn't have a sword of the hat, But sure, he could look, he could be Peter Pan, especially if that's what he that's what his imagination wants him to be. Then he says, Never mind. You wouldn't understand. Forget it. You wouldn't understand. Stacy. You're no Peter Pan like you have no resemblance to Peter Pan. There's no way I would think that you're Peter Pan. You're more of a cute, cuddly Chihuahua. Mm. So couple words here, cuddly is in an adjective in its describing the word Chihuahua. So what is a Chihuahua? I'm glad you asked. Let's look it up. We have one right here. A two hour is a little a little dog. It's a small kind of dog, and people think it's so cute and you may be fit in your pocket or inside your bag or something. And people like, Oh, so cute. Such a neat little dog. And it's a Chihuahua. That's just the kind of dog the dog breed A breed is a kind of doc. You have ah, breed of horses, A breed of cats. Kind of weird to say a breed of people because then you're looking at them as animals. Probably wouldn't say a breed of people, but a bit of animals breed of horses. Breed of cat, something like that breed of birds, I suppose. Okay, go back to the conversation. Oh, my Chihuahua's going. So Station says you're not a Peter Pan, but you're more of a cute cuddly to our cuddly. I'm cuddly. I would think more of like, uh, like a teddy bear like a teddy bear. Something that's cuddly. It's cute. It's something that you kind of want a hog. Uh, so let's look, you could say the Chihuahua is cuddly. Oh, how cute. I just want to hold you. I want to squeeze you. That's what people usually do with a teddy bear. Right? So, uh, this girl she is holding her cuddly teddy bear. She's holding her cute teddy bear that she wants to squeeze and hug and hold so cuddly. It's something, you know, that makes you feel good and nice. and you wanna hold it. It's like how cute, How nice. So that's cuddly. All right, go back to the conversation. One more thing I wanted to mention is that Fred In the beginning, he says, How long do you think we can defy gravity and stay like this? Never mind. In this section, he thinks what he said is not important. It's not important. So he just says to Stacey's, Never mind, but she says it's okay when she says it's OK. She is counter acting. She's going against his saying, Never mind, and she's letting him know that it's OK. It's important we can talk about it. So if someone says, never mind and the other person says, Oh, it's OK, that means it's not inconvenient For me, it's not a problem. It's OK. We can talk about it. I can focus on what you want to focus on right now. If Fred said, never mind and Stacey just ignored him and talked about something else, then she's probably not focused on what he is. Okay, that was conversation number one. I think we should move on. Ah, we have another picture. Let's go straight to the picture all right. Now, this is a cute picture. Very cute picture. Ah, there is a little puppy and there's a little girl. Let's start with the background, the environment, the environment. I would say it's in a park. The background is blurry. Blurry means it's not clear. It's out of focus. And the little girl and the puppy, they are in focus. They're very clear. We can see the details behind them. I think this is a tree looks like green grass and they're sitting on a blanket in the blanket is sitting on top of the green grass. So I would say they're probably in a park way over here. It looks like there's probably a tree and we have a little puppy. I'm not sure what kind of dog breed this is, but it's a cute little puppy. It's not a Chihuahua, Okay? And this is the dog's name is Milo. If I described him, I would say he has long years. He has a cute little nose. Sometimes it's a cute little button nose, like a button on 1/4. Some things like, I just want to touch it. It's so cute. Okay, His hair is short hair, but it's not a short is like the Chihuahua, so it's a little bit longer. The ears they hang down. Some dog breeds, like German shepherd their ears. They point straight up. Maybe I'll show you what a German shepherd is. Let's see if they have one in here. German shepherd. There you go. This is a different kind of dog and you can see that they're years points straight up. So yeah, this is a different kind of dog. Okay, so this is my low. And he's sitting right next to Eva on the blanket. And we have ive over here and she looks adorable. Adorable means really cute. Really just neat, right? So cute. Cuddly. Just like Ah, that's so cute. So even has, like, a hat on. And it has a lot of frills. Frills like these parts appear that they're not pointing their kind of flowing there waving , but they stick out a little bit, and it's a hat that covers her head. It's like a white hat and say there is probably a stretchy part underneath, so it would stay stuck on her head, not too tight, but just stretch enough like the waistband of like sweat pants or something, and then it will fall off if the wind blows. I would see Eva is Asian, I would say East Asian. So Japanese, Chinese, Korean. One of those looks like she has a cute little dress on which matches her her hat. And you could say this is like mesh. A mesh is where you can see through it. Let's see what they would show up in the picks. Her search for mesh. See if anything shows him, um, mesh. Well, mess me will see mesh clothing. Maybe this one kind of. If you unfolded this blanket and you held it up, it looks like it's thin enough and you would see See the light through it. So it's like a mesh. It's not like a full cloth that you can't see through. We go back to the girl. The top of her little dress and the top of her hat are like mesh, and they have a pattern sewn into him. But if you held them up to the light, you could see through them. She has to shoulder straps and looks like she's smiling. She's so young that she doesn't have any teeth yet, and she's old enough to sit up, right? So I would say she's probably like, what, 67 months old? I don't know. I'm not quite sure, but old enough to sit up. Maybe not that old. Maybe 56 months. Who knows? And she had. She doesn't have any shoes on, so you could say she's barefoot and her dress comes down past her knees. She's sitting there next to her dog, Milo. Milo is a puppy, so he's probably just a few months old as well. And these, uh, this little girl and this dog are probably going to grow up together, right? And, uh, yeah, so I think it's a very cute, neat little picture is bright. It's cute. It could be perfect for a commercial or something. What, they would advertise them. Maybe like some sort of parenting video. You want your kids to have a great education from when they're small, and they show this picture and people like, Oh, how cute. Yes, I want to buy your product. So if I had to summarize his picture, I would see there is a little girl and a puppy sitting in a park on a blanket. It's a bright, wonderful day out. The girl is smiling. It looks like the dogs may be yawning and someone took a picture. Cute little picture. Let's see what they're talking about. I know she's really young, but in this situation we're going to use our imagination and say that they can. Well, Eva can talk. So Eva says, How do you like my dashing outfit now? Milo says. Ruff Ruff roof roof. Eva says, Never mind. You can't talk quick, Fetch the more you I can't do it. Milo Roath. Eva. Never mind. You haven't learned that trick yet? Do you want Do you want to play chess? Womb? All right, so let's find the, uh, idioms. First off, never mind. Never mind. Okay? We quick take a look over the conversation a little bit strange that she's talking to. Well, actually, it's not so strange. Kids talk to animals, and they just have an incredible imagination. So let's do the conversation of regular speed. Follow along. Eva. How do you like my dashing outfit? Milo? Roof roof. Eva. Never mind. You can't talk. Quick. Fetch the ball. You can do it, Milo. Eva, Never mind. You haven't learned that trick yet. Do you want to play chess? Okay, so Eva says it was only one talking Milos making a noise. He is barking a little bit, so even says, Never mind. You can't talk, she said. Don't worry about it. Never mind. Don't. It's not a big problem. Don't let it bother you. Never mind, because you can't talk so we can't understand what I'm saying. Second time when she says Never mind, you haven't learned that. Trick it. Oh, it's not important. And what's not important? Patch the ball. Go get the ball. Okay, so let's talk about some of the vocabulary in this conversation. Dashing through outfit. Well, outfit is just your clothing, right? So if we put outfit into hooked out fit, let's see what happens. Should show clothing and stuff, right? Sure. OK, so these people have different outfits on you. See this? Guys dressed for business, business casual. This lady has an outfit that's perfect for jogging and running and exercise. This guy has, ah, I kind of already hiding in the darkness, but his outfit would be a long sleep short that's rolled up with the T shirt underneath. This lady. Her outfit is a wedding dress. Yeah, so outfits or just your kind of clothing that you wear all right, And a dashing outfit means exciting, incredible something that you want to look at. So if it's dashing, oh, it attracts people's attention. It's not exactly like the word ostentatious, ostentatious. Sometimes you want to attract attention to just show off. Dashing. Similar, uh, ostentatious means extravagant. You want to show everybody what you can do is like bling bling. Yeah, I look at me so even has a dashing outfit. You could say it's an interesting outfit. It's an outfit that attracts your attention. You want to look at it. It's just it is really cute, right? And Milo says Ruff, Ruff, kind of like he's going to talk with her. So never mind. You can't talk quick, fetch the ball. I'm quite sure we know the ball is tennis ball, basketball, football, whatever. But Fett, What do you think it means to fetch the ball? Who? Well, let's look it up, and this is something that dogs were doing. This is a command. She's actually telling him to do something. Fetch the ball. You can do it So let's see what happens if we put fetch will put fetch the ball in. Okay, so let's look at this picture right here. Fetch the ball is what a dog does. You throw the ball and they go and get it. So you could say fetch Or you could say, Fetch the ball, Go get the ball. Come on, you can do it And look at the focus on this dog's eyes. You say Onley focuses 101 110% Focus is this ball right here? So we had a dog when I was growing up and we would play fetch to you, throw the ball, they go get it and they bring it back. And I guess because the dog enjoys it so much we enjoy way. Enjoy it so much. And we have a wonderful time with our pet with our dog. So fetch just means to go get it. All right. You can use it for people you could say, Fetch someone at the airport, which means, like, pick up someone. Let's see if anything shows up for that. See, airport. Pick up. Well, yeah. Either way, if you fetch someone at the airport you pick them up and you might send like a taxi driver . You send a taxi and then they pick him up like maybe we call the taxi to fetch these people to get them to pick them up. I don't think it's so common in the US in the United States to say Fetch someone. However, when I've been in Singapore, I've heard it quite a bit to go fetch someone to go, get someone to go, fetch someone at the airport, pick them up. Okay, let's go back to the conversation. So she says, Quick touched the ball. Go get the ball, you can do it. So it was in a great mood, and I think Milo's in a great mood. However, Milo says roof with the question mark, so he's not exactly sure what she said. But he's a good sport. You spotted to be around, and he responds to her anyway. You've also says, Never mind. You haven't learned that Trick it a trick. What is a trick trick is something that you conduce you and see if we can find a picture for a trick and trick can be used. The word trick can be used in different scenarios. All right, so we have a few pictures that fit the word trick. Now when I'm saying trick in this conversation with the dog, it would be similar to this one where this guy is juggling the balls. He's throwing the balls up in the air and he keeps doing it right. It's a little bit difficult because he's not holding the balls all in one hand at all times . There's a ball up in the air and he's probably holding another one. And if he wants to keep the cycle, he has to keep throwing the ball up, catching and throwing the ball up and catching it. So this is like a trick. A trick is something that people can do which other people think. Oh, hey, that's kind of neat, right? So it could be a magician. It could be an acrobat or could be a dog trick. Right? Were like they fetch the ball or they put something on their nose and then they wait, Wait, and then they say, Okay, go ahead and then they eat it or they flip on their back or something like that. So, tricks, I would say Maybe this lady, she works in a circus. This is the silhouette. Once again you just see the outline of her body and the brighter lights coming from the background. Maybe her trick is to use these long kind of ropes or long pieces of cloth. And then she spins around and stuff like that, and people are like, Oh, wow, that's cool. So that's her trick. Another way that the word trick is used is for like, a card trick. So it's still something that's neat, right? So pick a card, Any card, take a card and dont show me right now. Stick it back in and I'm gonna do some crazy stuff. This is your card, right? The ace of spades and the persons like Hall. Wow, that's incredible. How did you know what my card waas right? So that's a trick is Well, there's also a trick or treat in Halloween. Halloween is quite popular in America. United States, American custom, tradition, trick or treat. Someone says trick or treat, trick or treat, uh, has a long history, but people keep doing it. Basically, what would happen is that if you say trick or treat is kind of a threat in the way. I don't know of a lot of people know this, but people keep saying it in the present. Even though in the past it started out as, like, ah, threat. Give me some candy, Give me a treat or I'll do a trick on you, right? Maybe I'll scratch your car. I'll throw a toilet paper over the trees and bushes and for in your front yard. So if you don't give me treat or candy or something, that I'm gonna do something bad to you. So it's kind of extortion. Extortion is you get people to do something because they're afraid of something you'll do if they don't do that. So for, like a criminal, he goes into a ah store and he says, Whole house, Your security here in person is like, fine, great, you psycho. You know, we're gonna offer our security services in the store. Owners like us. Okay, We don't need them. And the criminals like No, you need them. You're gonna pay us 100 are $500 every month for our security services and the customers, but I don't need them. And the criminal might be like, OK, don't take it. And then the person doesn't pay and something bad happens to their stores. Someone breaks in. Someone steals something. Later, the criminal comes back and says, See, See what happens is very dangerous around here. You need to pay me. So is he's extorting the business owner to pay him for his protection, and then later nothing happens. But the store owner still has to pay that feed the extortion feet. So that would be the trick, I guess. Okay, so I'm getting a little bit out of focus here, So let's go back to the conversation. So a trick in this case would be fetched. The ball and for a little puppy to fetch the ball is pretty good trip trick, right? If they can learn that that such a young age, that's pretty cool. All right, so you haven't learned that trick yet? Never mind. Don't worry about. It's okay. Do you want to play chess? Wu. If evil plays chess at this age, that's really good. Chess is wonderful for your brainpower growing and strategic thinking and trying to think you anticipate what will happen and pretty sure you guys know what chess is, but we'll put it into the image search anyway. So we have chest. You have all the chest piece. Is the king upon the RUC, the bishop, the night with a horse and all these different pieces. I think trust chess is wonderful. My daughter plays chest and you could just see their mind working is they're trying to figure out all the, you know, different situations, scenarios, strategies and stuff like that. All right, back to the conversation. Okay. I think that's it for this second conversation. So today we talked about the idiom. Never mind. We used a couple of pictures to people on the beach jumping up in the air and also a cute little adorable girl and her cute puppy sitting on a blanket in a park. And we use the idiom and these pictures to create conversations. Okay. I had a great time teaching this lesson. I hope you have a wonderful day 10. "on the other hand" + vocabulary: my master plan to take over the world begins tonight. Are you crazy? I haven't showered in six years and have no plans to change. Well, hello there. Today we're gonna use an idiom, on the other hand and some pictures to create conversations who? Let's start by talking about what this idiom means. On the other hand, so if someone says, on the other hand, it means from a different, conflicting or contrary point of view or it's, ah, looking at things from a different perspective through someone's someone else's eyes. If something is conflicting, it means it doesn't agree with something else. If I say I love chocolate ice cream and you say, Oh, I love vanilla ice cream, we have, ah, conflicting or contrary point of view. We don't agree. We have different perspectives. Here's an example with the idiom. You're a great cook. On the other hand, you're the worst driver I've ever seen. Your horrible Okay, so it starts out. You're a great cook, which is a compliment. Then, on the other hand, when you hear on the other hand and something good came before it, something bad is probably going to come after it So you're a great cook. On the other hand, however, from a different perspective, you're the worst driver I've ever seen. Your horrible You run into old ladies, you run over dogs, you crash into the wall. You're always looking at your cell phone while you're driving. You're the worst driver ever. All right, let's move forward. Ah, we have a picture. We're going to make a conversation and we're going to use the idiom. On the other hand, first I think we're going to talk about the picture. Let's describe this picture and make sure we know what's going on. Okay, so when I look at this picture, I see a mom and her son. It looks like the sun and the mom are both sitting on on the floor. The location, I would say it's inside a house, maybe a cabin. The floor and the wall looked to be made of the same kind of dark wood. Uh, there's a map on the floor in front of the sun. The sun is looking up at his mom, and his mom kind of has a scrunched face. Looking back at her son. I think it's like a cute face like their plane. It's not a mean face and the son he looks happy, and he looks confident. The sun has light colored blond hair, very light colored hair, and it's kind of short. Not very long. Um, he has a long sleeved, dark blue shirt. He has blue jeans on at the bottom of the blue jeans there, rolled up, which his pants were probably too long. So they rolled them up with the bottom. And he's barefoot. He's not wearing any shoes or socks, and his finger is pointing to somewhere on the map. The mom, she is wearing a gray sweater and the gray sweater has holes in it. Underneath her sweater, it looks like she has a white shirt, and she probably wears a shirt because the sweater is see through. She has kind of short brown hair, and the hair has different shades. There's streaks of lighter brown, and there's darker brown. And who knows if she highlighted her hair with different colors? I don't know. She has black pants on, and she has tennis shoes, and so that looks like they're sharing a nice moment, then, okay, so let's get back to the conversation Let's see what they're talking about. First, the sun is talking. My master plan to take over the world begins tonight. Mom, On the other hand, you could just eat your Mac and cheese and go to bed. Son. What? Didn't you hear me? I'm planning world domination, Mom. Well, on the other hand, you could play with some Legos instead. Okay, The first thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go through and make the idiom bold. Make sure that it's easy to see, and then it pops out at us, On the other hand, all right, a quick check. Make sure didn't make any type of mistakes. All right, so now I'm going to say the conversation at regular speed. Okay, Here we go, son. My master plan to take over the world begins tonight. Mom, On the other hand, you could just eat your Mac and cheese and go to bed. Son. What? Didn't you hear me? I'm planning world domination, Mom. Well, on the other hand, you could play with some Legos instead. I would say in this conversation, the kids quite serious and he has a plan. He has a goal. Is going to take over the world. However, Mom doesn't really believe him and just is kind of, uh, let's play. Let's go eat some Mac and Cheese place. Um, Legos, Mac and cheese. Do you know what Mac and Cheese is? I think we should look it up, see what it is. Let's use Google Image Search and we're going to put in Mac and cheese. Are you ready? Tasty. Tasty. Oh, okay. I see Mac and cheese, and it looks absolutely delicious. I grew up eating Mac N cheese. I still it Mac and cheese and Mac is short for a macaroni. So macaroni and cheese. And it's a very, very, very common dish in the United States, and it's pretty good. Sometimes they use different kinds of pasta. Let's see if we confined on up. Here we go. This one uses spiral pasta so they still call it Mac and Cheese. But the shape of the pasta is a little bit different. This one is a macaroni shape, and the one that seems we common is like the elbow shape, Uh, this words like a short little tube and curved. Okay, that's Mac and cheese Delicious. I think we should probably get back to the conversation. Okay, so that was Mac and cheese. Uh, Legos. I'm pretty sure you know what Legos are, but let's look it up because Google is awesome. Let's see. Find it here. No. Ah, area. Let's look, let's look up. Legos. And yes, so we have Legos. They even made a few Lego movies. I remember Legos have been a lot around for a long time. My daughter likes Legos. OK, so let's go back through the conversation. All right? So once again, the kid is focused on world domination and moms just say, Ha, ha. I don't think so. We're gonna you know, let's see it. Me fixed that. Okay, so she's more focused on, you know, Let's eat dinner place in Legos and then we'll see what's happening. Okay, so on the other hand is used to times in this conversation. That's the idiom. And so a first time mom says, on the other hand, you could just eat your each your, uh oh, the American cheese is gone. Okay, so Mom says, on the other hand, you could just eat your Mac and cheese and go to bed, and I got rid of the Legos, their back. Okay, Mom says on the other hand, you could just eat your Mac and cheese and go to bed so she could have said, You know, from a different point of view or another way to look at things, you could just eat your Mac and cheese and go to bed quite similar with other times, she says. On the other hand, well, on the other hand, you could play with some Legos instead. Well, you know, another way to do things is you could play with some Legos instead. Where this, uh, future will go after this conversation. I don't know. I don't imagine the mom is gonna allow him to take over the world, but looks like he has a gold, has some plans. He's got his map. And who knows what's gonna happen with world domination? Domination means you completely control everything. So if it's world domination, that means you're controlling the world. You're controlling the globe, the earth, everything in it. That's what the son wants. His master plan is like his big plan, his very unique planned, his biggest plan ever. It's the main plan in his life. His main goal the master plan. And it begins tonight, whatever that means. Okay, I think we explain everything in this conversation, I think, Yes. What? Let's do another conversation all. And of course, we use idiom. We're gonna make a conversation, and we have Eva and Mia. I think we should take a look at this conversation and look at the picture. We're gonna describe it. Okay, So looks like we have two girls, Eva and mia, and Ava is on the left side. Me is on the right side, the location or the environment. There outside, I would say it's mid day. You can't see the sun because it looks quite cloudy. You expect there are mountains and hills in the background, but se is pretty nice day. They don't have umbrellas and raincoats. It's not raining. It's a clear day bit cloudy, but still bright out. And it looks like if they walk straight forward through the brushes and probably fall off a cliff. So they're probably standing back behind the bushes in the brush so that they don't fall off the cliff. Not quite sure what they're looking at. Maybe they're looking into the sun. You can see that this part of her head is a little bit brighter, so the light must be coming from that direction. Avon, Mia. They both have their arms outstretched, even have their fingers stretched out wide open. Eva is wearing a looks like a brown sweater. She has two bracelets on her left arm. Looks like she has a ring on her right hand, the finger for right hand. She has long hair. It looks like she probably dyed her hair because it's bright, light colored at the end and darker closer on the scalp on the top of her head. So it looks like her natural color is growing out. And if she waits long enough, and if she doesn't dye her hair again, that is going to be all a dark color. Looks like she has a camera hung over her shoulder on a strap, and it looks like a big camera. I don't know exactly what model, but it has, Ah, lens on it, a full lens. So it's probably nice camera for taking great pictures. Mia. She has a backpack on. She has much shorter hair than Eva. Looks like her finger nails were painted bread. She has a bracelet on her left arm. She has a dark colored shirt on and pants and yeah, so they're outside to girls in the wilderness, Arms in the air. Let's see what they're talking about. Okay, so first, Eva, what a great way to dry our armpits. On the other hand, we look weird. Mia, who cares? In a few minutes, our armpits will be smelling like roses. Eva, on the other hand, we could just where the odorant and shower more often. Mia, are you crazy? I haven't showered in six years and have no plans to change. Hmm. Interesting. Interesting. Let's make the idioms bald so they jump out. On the other hand. Okay, let's take a look. Make sure to make any steaks. Okay? I'm going to see the conversation at regular speed. Eva, what a great way to dry our armpits on the other hands. We look weird. Mia, who cares? In a few minutes, our armpits will be smelling like roses. Eva, on the other hand, we could just wear deodorant and shower more often. Mia, are you crazy? I haven't showered in six years and have no plans to change. Let's just say it's good that they are standing outside because if they were standing inside their body, order the smell from their body, their sweat would probably be really bad. Okay, so a was the 1st 1 she says. On the other hand, we look weird. She could say, from a different perspective. We look weird. Weird is just another way to say strange, not normal, abnormal. They've also says, on the other hand, we could just wear the order and 10 shower more often so Or she could have said another way to do things would be to just wear deodorant and shower more often. Armpits. Let's see what armpits are. What do you say we go to Google image search once again and we'll look up armpits. See if you see if armpits are what you're thinking. They are. Ah, armpits. So armpits urges the under under part of your arm, right? Nothing super exciting. Looks like this ladies been sweating, probably like those two girls, so they have their arms up on there trying to dry. Another word in the conversation was deodorant. Let's see what deodorant is. It says stuff you rub underneath the arms so it's supposed to protect you and keep you from smelling and offending other people. All right, let's head back to the conversation. Okay? Let's see. Smelling like roses. This means isn't they Don't actually mean roses. She means smelling wonderful. Fresh, dry. Wonderful. So what's happened in this picture? These girls came out and they thought a great way to smell better, at least in the armpit region of their body was is to raise up their arms and let the airflow through and dry them out. Eva, she seems to start having different ideas. How they should live their lifestyle. We could just wear deodorant and shower more often. I think me is a strong minded one in this relationship. Are you crazy? I haven't showered in six years and have no plans to change. Okay, so we have two girls enjoying their time outside in the wilderness, and they want to dry their armpits. Is this a regular conversation? I don't know. A little bit strange, but it's a good way to use the idiom on the other hand. Okay, that was our second conversation. So today we used the idiom, on the other hand, with some pictures, and we created conversations. All right. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Have a wonderful day, huh? 11. "paint the town red" + vocabulary: I'm so excited to go out to the newest dance club and party like a rock star. Yee hah! And the first thing Okay, I got to stay serious here. Hello. Today we're going to use an idiom, paint the town red and, ah, few pictures together. We're going to use them to create conversations. Let's get started. First. We need to talk about this idiom. What does it mean? I'm glad you asked. Paint the town red means to go out drinking and dancing at bars and nightclubs. It means to go up partying and have a wild and crazy time. What is a nightclub? Oh, wonderful. Let's check it out. On where else? Google Image Search. Let's see what a nightclub is. So we type in nightclubs and it shows us who? Dancing lights, loud music, riel, wild and crazy time. Probably wonderful. You've been sitting in your office all all week long and you want to go up partying or maybe all month long or 10 months, and you take a break and you decide to go toe Las Vegas and party in a nightclub. Um, okay, let's see an example using paint the town red, the last time we painted the town red. I woke up in a different country without money or a passport. Who so there are different levels, I suppose, of painting the town red. You could just go out with their friends, have a nice time, maybe drink a little and go back home. Okay? You painted the town red, but maybe you go to the 10th level and do what this guy did. He drinks so much that when he woke up, he was in a different country. No money and no passport room. Probably not recommended activity. He really painted the town red and put himself in a very dangerous position. All right, let's move on. Oh, our first picture. We have the idiom over here, and we have the conversation. We're going to get to it in a few moments. Let's talk about the picture. Yes, I like it. Okay. In this picture, I see two women. I see Emma and Layla and they're dressed up quite nice. They have They both have makeup. They both have lift lipstick. They have GM not a make makeup expert, but mascara, the black dark stuff around their eyes, eye shadow, all of that stuff, okay? And their hair's done up. Very nice. Emma is holding a cocktail. I would call her a new alcoholic drink in her right hand. Looks like she has a long hearing, long earrings, and she has brown hair. Looks like a little bit short we can't quite see because it's hidden behind there. She has red lipstick on and lots of mascara. She has more of a serious look on her face. You could say she's looking directly at us, Boom, looking right at the camera, and she is sitting in a way that's but it is positioned a little bit away, pointing away from the camera. So she bends back to be able to look at the camera next to her hand on the table. Looks like a string of pearls, a pearl necklace, and maybe that's a person not quite sure she's sitting down on some sort of table. I really sure what it is. The background is dark color. I would say they're in a bar or a nightclub just because it's usually darker and they turn the lights down low in those kind of places. Layla is sitting closer to the camera she is looking away. Maybe she's looking at some someone or something I don't know. She's also holding a cocktail. Looks like it's the same kind of drink that Emma is holding is an orange liquid. Uhm, I'm guessing there's probably alcohol in it, because when people go up to bars and nightclubs, they don't usually order drinks that don't have alcohol in them. Layla has blond hair, and she has long hair, and she also has a hearing in her dress. I guess you could say it's like a brown, maybe like a light orange, and it has a whole bunch of I think they're called sequins. Ah, a bunch of different designs on it, little flashy things that stand out. And you could say this is an open back dress because her back is not covered. It's a sleeveless dress because there's no sleeves covering her arms and was. Dress also has intricate designs. Intricate means detailed. Ah, lot of designs on it, patterns different. I think they're called sequins, the little shiny things on them that will reflect the light when the light shines there. Okay, so Emma and Layla, they're out at probably nightclub or a bar, and they're just hanging out right now. Okay, let's see what they're talking about. Interesting. Okay. Looks like Emma is going to start the conversation. A few more cocktails and I'll be ready to paint the town red. You, uh, Leila? Whoa! Slow down, tiger. That's your 10th drink already. Pace yourself, Emma. I look fabulous. My breath smells like caviar, and I'm feeling ostentatious. Layla, we're gonna paint the town red like never before. Onward and upward. Okay, so let's make the idioms bold. Looks like the underlined ye harkis. It's spelled incorrectly, and I would agree that probably is spelled incorrectly. All right, there's one more in here. Paint the town red. So now we can see the idioms Easy where they fit in the conversation. All right, I'm going to repeat the conversation and regular speed. Follow along. Emma. Ah, few more cocktails and I'll be ready to paint the town red. Yee hah! Leila! Whoa! Slow down, tiger. That's your 10th drink already. Pace yourself, Emma. I look fabulous. My breath smells like caviar, and I'm feeling ostentatious. All right, Layla, we're gonna paint the town red like never before. Onward and upward. Okay, There's a lot of energy in this conversation. I would say they well, they've drank quite a bit already and it's in their blood and they're just feeling full of energy and excitement. OK, so M is the 1st 1 to use the idiom and she says a few more cocktails and I'll be ready to paint the town red. She could have said, Ah, few more cocktails and I'll be ready to paint to party like crazy And then she says, Ye ha, It's fair to say if she hadn't already been drinking, she probably wouldn't have yelled out Yee haw! But she's in a great mood and has great energy. Leila also uses the idiom. She says. We're gonna paint the town red like never before. She could have said, We're gonna go crazy, have a wild night dancing and drinking like never before. Okay, let's check out some vocabulary in this conversation. First we have cocktails. I think we should use Google image search and look up cocktails. Let's see what our cocktails okay. Cocktails are different kinds of drinks and, more specifically, alcoholic drinks. They're not just juice or milk or water. They have different look different kinds of alcohol in them. Maybe Rome. Maybe gin, maybe whiskey, maybe. See, what else is there? Uh, yeah, I'm not really an alcohol expert, But cocktails or just what people drink their sometimes fruity. They taste very nice. And there's enough alcohol in their toe. Get people drunk. Probably fairly quickly. Okay, so those are cocktails. Let's go back to the conversation. And Layla says to Emma, Slow down, Tiger. Now Tiger could be maybe a nick a nickname for Emma, but more likely than not, it's part of an expression that we can use you can use and it doesn't have to be in This kind of environment. Doesn't have to be at a bar if someone suddenly has overwhelming energy and they're just going to go crazy and move forward, they might need Teoh hesitate for a moment and pause and think about things so someone else might say who? Slow down, Tiger. Relax for a moment. Think about what you're doing. So when Layla says, slow down Tiger, she's talking about Emma having drank a lot already. That's your 10th drink already. And these glasses, I mean, they're not huge glasses, but they hold a decent amount of of liquid. So if she's already had 10 of these or this is her 10th so she's already finished nine. I would say she's going to be quite drunk this evening. So, Layla, slow down, Tiger, once again is just a way to say relax. Hold on, take a moment and think they'll also says pace yourself. Mm. The word pace is like a certain rhythm, a certain speed. If you jog or you run, maybe you're gonna run a long distance. If you run as fast as you can right away, you're probably gonna pass out before you finish the race or the whole distance. So if we're running a long distance, we usually pace ourselves. We set a speed which keeps us moving forward, but it's not so fast that it's going to make a so tired that were unable to finish. So here, Leyla says to Emma, Pace yourself. In other words, Well, we know, slow down. Take it easy. If you drink like that, you're gonna pass out before we have any time to have some fun. So pace yourself just means be careful. Pick a speed which you can continue onward for a while. All right, Emma, she says. I look fabulous. My breath smells like caviar. Who? Caviar. What is caviar? Hello, Mr Google. Let's look up caviar, caviar, his fish, eggs. And personally, I don't think I've ever had caviar. That's what I know. I've eaten a lot of fish, but I don't think I've had caviar. What I know about caviar is usually seen as something that the that rich people eat. Uh, that is very expensive. I think it comes in a can. And I think there are different countries, like, I think, Russia. They produce a lot of caviar in very high quality, very expensive caviar. Here you go, in the can and right. I guess people love to eat fish eggs. Okay, so for whatever reason and was breath smells like caviar. And since I haven't eaten caviar, I'm not sure if it has like, a fishy smell or it has a better smell. Or if it's a certain type of caviar, she's eating that they added some flavor. And so it has a nice smell. I don't know, but I think since Amma has already she's already on her 10th drink, she's saying strange things. My breath smells like have, er maybe that's what they had for dinner. I don't know. She goes arm to say I'm feeling ostentatious. Let's figure out what ostentatious means and we'll put it into Google Search to see if it will give us more of a visual. A picture idea of what ostentatious means. Okay. And see. Look at this picture. Look at my massively ostentatious shopping big. I obviously shop in really expensive stores. And then this one says, bet you that you wish you could afford this stuff. Afford means. I bet you wish you could pay for this stuff. Afford means to be able to pay for something so ostentatious is in this car. It would be like blang blink. If someone is ostentatious, they want to attract attention. They're going to do things in an extravagant manner. Extravagant is another word for ostentatious. You're doing things in a way that you want to attract attention. And here's how you spell extravagant look extravagant right there. So if we look it up, we see different locations, but it's still kind of similar. Wild and crazy decorations, high quality, super just so much trying to attract attention and It's not necessarily a bad thing if you have the money and you can pay for it. Great. Some people really like to live an ostentatious or extravagant lifestyle and show off and show the things that they have. Okay, let's go back to the conversation. Uh, I got rid of the word ostentatious. Okay, So she's embassy, and I've and I'm feeling ostentatious, and I'm feeling extravagant, and I feel like showing off and doing things which will attract attention. Okay, Layla finishes the conversation. We're gonna paint the town red like never before, onward and upward, onward and upward. And she says it with an exclamation mark at the end. So she's not, like, onward and upward. She's, like, onward and upward, Onward and upward is another way to say, Let's do it, Let's go forward. All right, So if you're gonna know, climb a mountain at the beginning you're in a group of people and you're very excited to get started and get going. May be the leader of the pack says onward and upward. Let's do it. Let's move forward. Okay, so here's the picture. And if I had to summarize the picture, I would say There are two young ladies dressed very nicely, and they're probably in a bar or dance club there, drinking alcoholic beverages, cocktails. And they're sitting for the moment, probably watching the crowd and seeing what's happening, and someone took their picture. Okay, let's move on to our second conversation, all right? And of course, we need to describe the picture. This picture is quite a bit different than the other one. First, the setting or the location, the environment is much different than the other picture. The other picture is probably at night time. That's usually when people go out and paint the town red. This picture is right during the daytime. Um, their shadows. I'm not quite sure what direction they're going, so I'm not exactly sure what I'm gonna say. I'm gonna guess later afternoon. Definitely not nighttime in not early morning or late day. So I'm gonna say afternoon sometime. We have two people walking, judging by their hair, gray hair, their skin, the wrinkles there to older people that are holding hands. How nice. And they're walking down the street and the environment. I would say they're downtown somewhere. The buildings look to me like they would be like a bank building or a business building in more of a business district of a city. And they both have backpacks on. We have stand on the left and we have Leah on the right. Leah is a little bit shorter about ahead ahead shorter than Stan is. Stan. You could say he's taller than Leah about ahead, because you can probably take one of his heads and put it over here. So he's a head taller. Then Leah Stan has a backpack. He has, I would say they're like business pants on. Sometimes they say Call him slacks or dress pants and their great color. There's a pocket with a button in the back, and probably there's a bulge in his back pocket. Abolishment means like it comes out a little bit. Looks kind of puffy because he probably has his wallet in there on his left hand. Looks like he has a watch. Not exactly sure what kind of watch is hidden. His backpack is black and it looks like he's wearing glasses. He has gray hair with some white around the edges. I would say his shirt is a polo shirt with like kind of like my shirt with, like, 32 or three buttons right by the neck. It doesn't button all the way down, Uh, but it has a collar and it's short sleeve. I'm gonna guess its a polo shirt. Very relaxed feel. It is very easy to wear. So that's Stan Leah. She's has brown pants on. She also has a black backpack. It looks to me like Stan's backpack is a little different shape, but I think Stan's backpack is a little more full. Has more things in it than Lia's. Uh, Leah's shirt is, Let's see. That's a wild shirt, lots of designs. Looks like the main colors in that shirt or black, orange or pink and white and a lot of intricate designs. Intricate means. Detailed designs. Excuse me. Um, it's a long sleeve shirt. Stand shirts is short sleeve. Leah's is long sleeved. It has a collar. White collar. It doesn't look like she's weren't any glasses. Her hair is short as well, and it's gray and else also has white in it. And so if I had to summarize his picture, I would say Stan and Leah are walking down the street in the middle of the day holding hands, and I took a picture of them. Okay, let's get to the conversation. Once again, we have the idiom paint the town red. Who? This must be an interesting one of thes older people. They're gonna be painting the town red somehow. Let's see what they're talking about. All right, So, Leah, she starts the conversation after we rob this bank, we're gonna paint the town red, baby. Stan. Oh, yeah. I've got all our burglary tools in my backpack. What's in yours? Leah caught cotton candy, a deck of cards and a slinky. It's everything, but we need Stan. This is the best birthday surprise ever. I'm so excited to paint the town red. All right, let's find those idioms. There's one right there. Make it bold. Let's find the other idiom. Paint the town red making bold. Okay, now we have to Idioms that were used. Leah used it once and staying used it once. We made them bold. So they pop out and we can see how they're used in the conversation. All right, quick check. All right, I'm gonna do this conversation and at regular speed. Leah, after we robbed this bank. We're gonna paint the town Red Baby stand. Oh, yeah. I've got all our burglary tools in my backpack. What's in yours? Leah? Cotton candy, a deck of cards and the slinky. It's everything we need. Stan, this is the best birthday super surprise ever. I'm so excited to paint the town red, so I m looking at this picture. I would not have expected this conversation. That's kind of how it works around here. OK, so Leah says after we robbed this bank, we're gonna paint the town red baby. She could have said after we after we robbed this bank, we're gonna party like crazy baby, we're going to go out on the town and go toe all the dance clubs, Baby Stan, He also uses the idiom, and he says this is the best birthday surprise ever. I'm so excited to paint the town red and it could have said I'm so excited. Toe goat. See, I'm so excited to have a crazy and wonderful time tonight. I'm so excited to go out to the newest dance club and party like a rock star. Okay, so Lee and Stan have just had their conversation. Let's take a look at some of the vocabulary in here first. Well, first, before we get to the vocabulary. So what's gonna happen? Well, it looks like it stands Birthday, right? He says this is the best birthday surprise, surprise ever. And I guess the surprise is to rob the bank. If this is the best birthday surprise ever, which is, you know, kind of crazy. Kind of makes you think. What have they done for his other birthdays? Burglary tools. Mm. Repeat after me. Burglary tools. What are burglary tools? I'm so glad you asked. Mr. Google is so glad you asked. All right, let's take a look. Burglary tools. Okay, let's look at this one. Burglary tools are basically tools that help you break into a building and rob something. Steal something. Takes something. So, uh, the money could be a tool that if there's a guard in front and you like apes, I need to get inside here. Here's some money. You never saw anything, so the money could be a bribe. It's a tool to get in the building. And the guards like Okay. Security guards don't usually make that much money, especially regular ones that are unarmed and don't have weapons and have a very low level of training. So he's probably, like, who? Sure? $100. I'll do whatever you want. I'll help you. Okay, over here. It looks like some sort of, I don't know, maybe an I D. Document something like that. Ah, this Would these air called with the red handles air called bolt cutters? If there's a big chain like a chain link fence, let's quick look up. What a chain link fences. Chain link fence is this kind of fence. So have these steel or aluminum things. And with the bolt cutters, it's thes bolt cutters. You just you just clamp on and you can cut. All right, The machete. I guess that could be a burglary tool. Usually, when I think of, I used to be a police officer back win, and usually burglary is something that is done at night. It's quiet, and they're trying not to hurt anybody. They're trying to not be seen or heard, so oftentimes they carry no weapons, at least the ones that I caught. It was very common that they wouldn't care any weapons because they just want to go in and out quick. And don't Machete would be more for a robbery, not a burglary. However, let's say you're in the jungle. There's some cabin in the jungle that you need to get to to rob things. So to get through the jungle, you need to cut away the bushes and stuff. Okay, Uh, this looks like some sort of a bayonet or big knife. Not quite sure. Cell phones. You can use those if you're going to steal from somewhere. Maybe you have a partner in this case, Stand and Leah stand's gonna be on the phone. Okay. Is it clear to go in? Leah's like, Yeah. Yeah. Good. I mean, eating my cotton candy. It's ready, Teoh. Let's do this. Okay. All right. Let's see anything else. This is called a crowbar, and a crowbar is used to force something open. Uh, the whole the opening right here. If there's a nail that's popping up Ah, nail. Here's a nail. So a nail and hammer. This would be the nail. And you can use the crowbar to force the nail to come up. You hook it in there and then you pull it up. But a crowbar can also be used to force open a window, even though the window's locked, you stick that crowbar and they're and your pop it open, and it forces the lock open. Or if the crowbar is big enough, you could use it to force open the door or forced open a a lock of some kind crowbars. Very useful not only for burglary, but for regular life, too. And here, this is my This might be what? How burglar would dress cover their face? They don't want to be seen. Plus, it makes them dark. They can hide in the bushes and in the night and stuff, however, Lee and Stan are doing in the daytime. Okay, so these air burglary tools All right, let's go back. So, stances. I've got all all our burglary tools in my backpack. That might explain why his backpack looks like it's a little bit bigger than Lia's. Then he asked Leah what's in yours? And when he says yours, it's a possessive pronoun and is talking about your backpack. So who's backpack? Leah's backpack and the first thing. Okay, I got to stay serious here. Cotton candy. Mm. Do we know what cotton candy is? Well, I think we're gonna find out. Cotton candy. I haven't had cotton candy for a long time. Okay, so this is cotton candy. It's basically sugar, sugar and food coloring, and they spin it around in the machine. Let's see, Let's put in cotton candy machine, all right, and it just spins around. I'm not expert, but it spins around. They're able to put the sugar and the sugar becomes crystallised, and they make cotton candy. So when, from what I remember, eating cotton candy is really sticky. It takes quite good cause it's like pure sugar, and maybe they put a flavor on it, or they put some food coloring it in. But it's This is cotton candy. And why, why She has cotton candy in her backpack to do to go commit a burglary. Who knows? She also has a deck of cards from what is a deck of cards. I think that's a great question. A deck of cards are like playing cards, right for, um, playing poker, playing different games, and this is the deck with its inside a little box. So all the cards are neatly organized inside the box, and Leah has a deck of cards in her backpack. Why? Who knows? And here's the one that maybe you guys have been heard before. Ah, Slinky. What is a slinky? I know they make plastic ones, and they also make, uh, metal. One said, I don't know if they make the mother ones anymore, actually, or aluminum. Ah, Slinky. What is a slinky? I don't know. If you guys have seen this before, I guess you probably do make them know No one's a slinky. Uh, it just it stretches, it pulls out, and then it will go down the stairs. So let's see Slinky going downstairs. We're going to give us a gift. Okay, so see if it loads that slinky will start at the top, and it since it bends, it keeps going. It will go down and down and down, and it gets his forward momentum so it keeps moving. So slinky is kind of cool. I always like the metal ones or the aluminum one's better than the plastic ones. They just seem to be much better, even though they would bend easier. Okay, so that is a slinky. It's a kid's toy. OK, so Leah, she has everything they need for a burglary, cotton candy, a deck of cards and a slinky. And she even says it's everything we need. Okay. All right. So, uh, this thing is going to be a crazy day, Whether or not they're successful, I'm gonna bet that they are successful. Because if they've been living a dangerous lifestyle like this and their this old and they're not in jail, I imagine they have could a lot of practice, and they've been able to do this kind of stuff. All right, that was our second conversation using the idiom paint the town red. Today. In this lesson, we used the idiom paint the town red and some pictures two women on the left and a new older couple on the right. Different scenarios, different situations. But they both use the idiom, paint the town red, and we created conversations. Okay. All right. I had a great time teaching this lesson. I hope you didn't to have a wonderful day 12. "run out" + vocabulary: Tom is very serious about his pizza. I don't have much hair, so I don't think about describing here very much. Well, hello there. Welcome. Today we're going to talk about an idiom, and this idiom is run out. We're going to use a picture and the idiom to create a conversation. Let's jump in and get started first. Let's talk about the idiom. You know what the heck doesn't mean? Well, if you run out of something, it means to not have any more of something. It's all used up. It's all gone. So if I ran out of batteries, well, the batteries I have don't work anymore, so I need to get some more. I need to buy some more. Or if you have you ran out of ice cream or you ran out of pizza. You ran out of whatever food you need to go get some more because your current amount is gone. So if you run out means our supply of something is empty, we need to replenish it. Replenish means to fill it up again or get more so our supplies empty are very, very low. It's time to replenish our supplies. Let's see an example. After running out of pizza, Tom thought the world would end. Tom freaks out when we run out of things. So Tom is very serious about his pizza. So after running out of pizza after there was no more pizza or you could say after the pizza was all eaten after the pizza was all gone, Tom thought the world would end. And this is a saint the world would end. It doesn't literally mean that Tom was going to be like, Ah ha ah! Meteor is gonna fly from outer space and blow up the world and everything's gonna be over. No, it means more that Tom had a rough time. He's really stressed out. This really upsets him. Whenever we run out of pizza, he freaks out. If someone thinks the world is gonna end, then they might be freaking out. Eso Tom freaks out when we run out of things. Or you could say, Tom freaks out whenever we are supplies low or our supplies empty. Okay, so let's move forward. All right, so we have a picture, we have the idiom, and we're gonna make a conversation. Let's check out the picture. Shall we Okay, I see Two young ladies could say female adolescents, female teenagers or maybe just girls. Um, if you said girls to them, they might think that you're calling them, treating them like Children. So I probably say teenagers or adolescents. So we have two females to teenagers Mary and Tanya, and looks like the environment is some a crowd of people I think you can kind of see. There's a person standing here and looks like that person has a purse or, uh, Abegg over their shoulder. The strap is here and in the background. It's kind of blurry. It's not clear, but I'm going to guess that there are some place where there's a crowd of people, maybe a concert. Maybe some event outside. We see. It's nice, bright. It's Ah, probably in the afternoon, early afternoon, maybe late morning, where the sun is right overhead. It's a nice, bright time of day, so we have Mary and Tanya. First thing is, they have similar, uh, their hair. Howdy, discard the here. I don't have much hair, so I don't think about describing here very much. Ponytail. Ah ha. That's what it's called. Mary has a ponytail and Tanya has a pointy tail, so if they tie their hair up behind with these scrunchies, I think they're called. They're like rubber bands, air stretchy and once again I'm not a hair expert, but they put all their hair through it and it holds it in the back like ponytail and a pony is like a horse. And so if you think of a horse's tail, it's all together at one spot when it comes down and hangs straight down. So Mary and Tanya both have ponytails, etc. We'll start with Mary. Looks like she has brown hair. It's a dark brown, and the sun is shining on it, so it's a little bit hard to see. What if this is the natural color? This is natural color because the light's not even, but I say she has long hair into a ponytail hanging down over her back. I would say she has a dark color shirt on. It looks like a merit. Mary is a white person or you could say a Caucasian person. And, uh, yeah, I can't really see a lot of what, Mary, we can't see your facial expression. We can't see what she's doing. really can't see her hands or anything. So let's go on to Tanya. Tanya is you could say a black person, African American, a person, or if they're from Africa, would say they're African. So either way, Tanya has a hearing. She has a white hearing on her left year, and I guess you don't know for sure because you can't see it. But I'm guessing she has the same kind of hearing on her other side. So her hair is in a pony tail, just like Mary's. And you can see some of the hair in front of Tanya's forehead is hanging down. You would call those bangs, uh, the hairs hanging down So some of her bangs air hanging down over the side of her face, and she has shadows coming on. Her face looks like Mary's blocking the sun a little bit. It was a little bit of shadow that's falling onto Tonya's face. Looks like Tanya has looks like a multi colored shirt, looks like black and blue, and she's holding a cell phone. So I imagine she's talking to someone texting, texting someone. I don't know whatever is happening on the phone. Mary and Tanya are very interested in it. So summarizing this picture, I see two teenagers looking. I see two teenagers together and the very focused on a phone that one of them is holding. It looks like they're outside. And it's a marvelous day. Let's see what they're talking about, shall we? Yes. Okay, so Mary is going to start the conversation. You know, you're gonna run out of minutes talking to that weirdo, right? Tanya? He's not a weirdo. He's my sweet, lovable boyfriend. He's the best. Well, I spell this one around. Didn't. Okay, weirdo. Alright. Continuing on Mary Answers from last night, I saw him running up and down the street in his boxer shorts. Tanya, he does that whenever we run out of or oregano. Oh, he's such a sweetie. Okay, first step, we're going to find the idioms. We're gonna make them bold. So they stand out. It's easy to see how they're used in the conversation and in each sentence. Okay, so Mary says, run out once and tinier says run out the other time, so I'm gonna quick look over the conversation, see if I have any more typos. Doesn't look like it. Here. Here I'm gonna read the conversation at regular speed. Married. You know, you're gonna run out of minutes talking to that weirdo, right? Tanya? He's not a weirdo. He's my sweet, lovable boyfriend. He's the best. Mary. Mm. Last night, I saw him running up and down the street in his boxer shorts. Tanya, he does that whenever we run out of or regularly. 00 he's such a sweetie. Okay, so Mary's the 1st 1 to use the idiom run out, and she says, you know, you're going to run out of minutes talking to that weird. All right, So she could have said, you know that your minutes are going to be used up, right? Or you know that you're gonna not have any more minutes if you keep talking to that. Weird. All right, so run out. Her supply of minutes is going to be poof gun. Tanya says he does that whenever we run out of oregano. So it's quite similar to running out of minutes. But this time we're gonna run out of oregano. There won't be any more of it. The supply will be empty. We need to replenish the supply, or Philip the supply again. All right, so let's talk about some of the vocabulary. So Mary says, run out of minutes, right? And we could see there, you know, using a phone. So the minutes are going to be on her phone and depending on what kind of plan she has on her cell phone, I'm going to guess that it's well, her plans probably something that has a specific amount of minutes that she can use, maybe during a month or a week or some specific time frame. For example, if you buy a prepaid cell phone or you have a cell phone where you have to pay for the minutes before you use them, then you have a certain amount of minutes to use. And if you go over that, then you can't talk anymore. So these are the kind of minutes, the minutes on her phone. All right, Mary says, you know you're gonna run out of minutes talking to that weirdo. So what is a weirdo? Weirdo is someone who is strange, someone who does weird and crazy things or things that don't seem normal or just make you think that's strange. So if we look up the word weird. Let's see. Let's look up weird and see what pops up so weird could be like abnormal. If I look at this picture and if it was a real picture, I'd say, Wow, that's kind of weird. Look, that huge dog and this kids out front taking pictures of him and they're in a desert. It's kind of weird. It's kind of strange. Alright, this guy looks just has weird faces on, right? So a weirdo is a person weird. The word is an adjective describing someone How what they like. Oh, he's a weird guy, right? What kind of guys? He's weird. But if you want to use as it now and you could say he's a weirdo, he is a strange person. You just Yeah, strange. All right, back to the conversation. What? I took my weirdo. Okay, so, Tanya, she says, No, no, he's not a weirdo. He's my sweet, lovable boyfriend. What does lovable mean? Well, loveable means that you're able to love someone, or they do certain things or their actions. You really like what they do and you because of what they do. You love them lovable. Um, it's love plus a bull right. You could have a huggable, uh, to herbal. So two plus a bull mean to evolve means you're able to to it huggable able plus hug means you're able to hug it So lovable to herbal huggable means you're able to do something so lovable you're able to love them, and it's easy to love them. And it's, uh, Tonya's boyfriend in this case, so married. Mm last night I saw him running up and down the street in his boxer shorts, water boxer shorts. If he's a weirdo and he's running up running up and down the street at night, then there might be a reason. Let's see. So we're gonna type in boxer shorts, see what pops up. All right, we've got a lady boxers. OK, here's what we're after. We're looking for boxer shorts there, just the kind of underwear that usually men where I guess women can wear them, too, if they want to. But boxer shorts are their shorts. They're not like the underwear that cuts off right here. They go down the legs a little ways, and maybe they're a little bit tighter. So those are boxer shorts? Incredibly exciting. Okay, so, Mary saw Tonya's boyfriend running up and down the street in his boxer shorts last night. That's a little bit weird. So Mary thinks he's a weirdo. However, Tanya, No, he does that whenever we run out of oregano. Oh, you're such a sweetie. So let's see what oregano is. Mm. Any guesses? What is? Or Ragano put it in here. So oregano is a kite kind of spice, and I think this is what it looks like. I'm not a cook, so forgive me if I'm incorrect here, but before you pick the oregano, I think it looks like this when they grow it on a farm and after it's already dried and ready to be used for cooking. My understanding is that it looks something like this, and it's an herb. It makes the food taste better. Write my wife uses oregano, my mom using oregano. I don't really cook so much, so I can't say I used oregano, but I've heard of it. I've smelled that I've seen it up, touched it and tasted it cause it's in the food and I would say it's good. I don't know anybody who eats oregano directly. That would just pick this up and eat it, but it adds extra flavor to the food and makes the food even better, right? All right. So for some reason, they ran out of oregano and Tonya's boyfriend has to run up and down the street in his boxer shorts. Ah, he just does that whenever we run out of oregano. Oh, he's such a sweetie. All he's such a dear Ah, he's such a lovable boyfriend. So by summarizes conversation, I would say the two girls were talking and tigers. She's probably texting her boyfriend. Mary thinks she's gonna run out of minutes. So let's see. I got a summarize, right? Gotta be shorter. So Mary and Tanya, Hard Time is talking to her boyfriend on the phone. Mary's worried that time is gonna run out of minutes. Mary thinks her boyfriend's weird, but tiny. It's like, No, he is love of my life. I love him so much, especially when we run on oregano when he runs up and down the street in his boxer shorts. OK, so that's our conversation for today. Today we talked boat, the idiom run out and we used a picture, and together we created a conversation wonderful. Okay. I hope you had a good time. I had a great time. Have a fabulous, wonderful and incredible day. See you later. 13. "silence is golden" + vocabulary: It's kind of like camouflage or leopard skin wild Ruth. Oh my. Couldn't she actually uses pink toilet paper? Not white toilet paper on the head? Chicken last night also. Oh, it is Hello. In this lesson, we're going to use an idiom. Silence is golden and some pictures. We're gonna use them together to create conversations. Who exciting. First, let's start with the idiom. What does it mean? Silence is golden means to keep your mouth shut. Don't talk about what you heard. It's better to be quiet and avoid speaking. The word avoid means to not do it, so it's better to be quiet and not speak. Avoid speaking. Keep your mouth shut. Here's an example. I know you want to tell the boss how ugly his hair is. However, silence is golden. Don't be crazy and get fired. In other words, however, it's better to not say anything. It's better to keep your mouth shut. Don't be crazy and get fired. So the boss probably came into work with this new wild haircut, which really sucks and is ugly. Everyone's like it's really nice, and someone just wants to jump up and say Your hair cut is ugly. It's the most horrible I've ever seen. It sucks. The boss would be like, Okay, I'm not used to that. Direct criticism. My response is you're fired. Get out of here. So that's an example How you could use the idiom. Silence is golden. Let's move on. Okay. Our first picture. And in a few moments, we're gonna have a conversation, see what they're talking about. We can see the idiom over here. Silence is golden. First, let's talk about the picture. And while we're talking about and describing the picture, I'm gonna hang out in my game system. Who? So nice? Okay, we have Ruth and Mary. We have two women and their one standing one sitting in there next to the ocean. The location? The environment, I would say, is close to the ocean on the beach. This beach? I wouldn't say it's very good for swimming because you have all these rocks in the way. If you wanna Hey, I'm gonna go jump in the ocean. Who e. I'm falling over the rocks. You also have tide pools, these little pools, or many ponds of water when there's high tide, when the ocean comes in, Uh, it fills up in this, probably covered with water here when it's low tide, when the water goes back out, then it leaves some of the water behind and those air called tide pools. Okay, let's talk about Ruth. Ruth has on black shoes, and it looks like White Sox. I'd say black pants that are like stretchy pants because it looks like they're tight against her. Her legs, her Ruth shirt. How do we describe Ruth Shirt? Makes me think of a leopard or a cheetah. The spots on Tito or a leopard except this one has read Spartz now are pink spots, whatever they are. But, oh, it also makes me think of camouflage. Camouflages what soldiers wear or hunters where in the jungle or in the woods when they want to hide and they don't want people are animals to see them, so it's kind of like camouflage or leopard skin wild. Ruth Ruth also has a scarf on, and she's wearing a hat. You could call this hat a wide brimmed hat, which means it has the part all around here. This brim goes all there on the hat, and it just protects her from the sun covers her neck so she doesn't get sunburned and covers down over her forehead and protects her from the sun. Looks like Ruth is wearing glasses. I would say they're not sunglasses because it looks like it's They're not dark. You can see through them. All right. Mary is sitting down in a chair and looking out over the ocean, taking in all the sites and the wonderful waves. Mary is looks like she has gray hair, and she has kind of a dark grey or brown shirt on long sleeve. They both have long sleeve, which makes me think that it's a little bit cold or the wind is a little bit cold. Ah, Mary's. Like I said, she's sitting down. I can't quite see what her pants look like, so it's difficult to describe. I imagine she's not wearing shorts because if they're wearing long sleeve and they're kind of covered up, probably not wearing shorts. Okay, uh, I'd say Mary and Ruth are older. Women may be old women, you could say, looking at Ruth's hand, you can see how wrinkled it is, and there are a lot of wrinkles on her hand, and the other older women. You could say, Ruth, you describe her weight. I'd say she's been overweight. She's kind of large, portly, chubby. Uh, you could if you want to be ruled. You could say Ruth is kind of fat because her body sizes large. Okay, so if I had to summarize this picture in just a couple quick sentences, I would say I see two older women. One is standing. One is sitting looking out over the ocean, but Okay, so let's see. What are they talking about? Looks like Ruth is going to start the conversation. How long are we going to watch the waves? I'm getting bored, Mary. Silence is golden. Ruth, you're ruining this beautiful moment, Ruth. You say silence is golden, but I'm hungry. Tired? A key and need a toilet. Add another comma there. All right, Mary, if you keep talking, I'm gonna take take this chair and smack you over the head. Probably said exclamation. Okay, so first I'm gonna make the idioms bold. Uh, this is idiom that we're focusing on today. And if you make them bold that it's easy to see them in the conversation and how they're used. Okay, a quick check nothing else to change. I'm going to say the conversation at regular speed. Follow along. Ruth. How long are we going to watch the waves? I'm getting bored. Mary. Silence is golden Ruth. You're ruining this beautiful moment, Ruth. You say silence is golden, but I'm hungry, Tired? A key and need a toilet. Mary, if you keep talking, I'm gonna take this chair and smack you over the head, All right. Mary is the 1st 1 that uses the idiom. Silence is golden, so she said, Silence is golden Ruth. Well, she could also said, it's better not to say anything. Ruth, please keep quiet. Ruth, at this part of the conversations, she's still relaxed. She's not pissed off yet, Ruth says. Backed her. You say Silence is golden. She could have said. You say it's better to be quiet or you say it's better to keep my mouth shut right now, but I'm hungry, tired, a key and need a toilet. The word 80. Let's see. Let's put a key into Google Search and see what it pops out with. A key means pain. Uh, like a painful condition. It's not pain that is gonna knock you over and like, make you pass out. But it's like a dull pain that just keeps going on. So if you're you have joint pain in your joints would be like your knees, your elbows, your hips, your ankle stuff like that where the bones air going like this or moving. If you have achey legs like it says here, then your legs hurt and it's just uncomfortable pain that just stays and stays and stays. And maybe you need medicine or something. I see. If you look a few more pictures, I bet this person has a key feet. They feel taking it. Just it hurt, all right. And this lady, her neck. Oh, my neck Tous aches. I have a key neck. Okay, all right, let's go back to the conversation. So oh, tired A key. That's what it was. So the two women seems like they're very peaceful in the picture, however, Ruth has to pee, and Mary wants to hang out longer and enjoy the view and the ocean. So I think I mentioned before. At first, Mary is relaxed. She's just off feeling the good energy and the vibes. But then Ruth keeps going and marry just gets pissed off. If you keep talking, I'm gonna take this chair and smack you over the head smack. It's another word for hit to violently attack you. I'm gonna hit you over the head using this chair. Now, if Mary is able to actually pick up the chair. Yeah, that's debatable. May We're not quite sure, but, um, she threatens Ruth, right? She just She's pissed off. Notably quiet. I'm enjoying myself here, and you ruined it. So I bet was probably gonna happen. Is Ruth is going to go inside, and Mary is probably going to go along to rule is going to go the bathroom bill. Happy again. The challenges that these two women are older so it takes more time and effort to get out where they are. Maybe they have to pick up the chair. Maybe it's a long walk. I don't know. So Mary probably doesn't want to just go there and then quick leave. She wants to stay for a while. Enjoy the view in relax. All right? That's our first conversation. Well, I just say first conversation. That's right. We're going to have another conversation idiom conversation and we'll see what they're saying in just a moment. Let's describe the picture. I see two kids. And if I had to guess, I would say they're 66 or seven years old, maybe even five. I don't know. I would guess about six years old and once Name is Jo and the other is Kelly Jo is a boy and Kelly's a girl. They're almost the same height, right? So let's start with Jo. Jo has on red shoes and looks like his shoes are different from Kelly's, almost the same color except that Joe's shoes are with laces with strings that go through and they type of shoe. Kelly has bell crow straps, Velcro straps, Google Image Search. Here we come, though, grow straps. Okay, so that's vocals strap and will make it more specific. Velcro strap shoes. All right, so you can see this one has two straps right here as you open them and then they go back closed. It's just the easy way for the tire shoe, right? Versus Little Joe. He has shoe laces, right? So these are colorful shoe laces. This is what the shoe laces would look like when they're pulled out of the shoes. Okay, so she was with shoe laces. Take quite a bit longer to tie, then Velcro. Well, not a super amount of time longer, but Velcro is just really easy. Okay, let's go back to the conversation. All right. So, Joe, he has red shoes on and he has blue jeans on Etsy has a dark green shirt and has two pockets right in front. It's a button up shirt, and he has his shirt untucked, which means it's out over is the top of his pants. It's not tucked in its untucked long sleeve shirt, and he has his hands folded behind his back like a little gentleman. He's looking at something that we can't see that outside the picture, I would say Joe's hair is very long for a boy, and you could say his hair cut in my hair cut or are opposite All right. Angela has grown hair looks like brown eyes in a very innocent face. Kelly, she's looking right at the camera directly at us. We look at her face. It looks like she's looking right at us. Kelly has red shoes like we talked about before. She has Velcro straps on her shoes. Looks like she also has blue jeans on, I would say her jeans or maybe newer or just a little bit darker color blue, then Joe's are. Kelly is also carrying a handbag, or a large person could say in its white that it looks like it has, ah, black trim on it. And Kelly just looks like a neat little lady. She has a red or dark pink or light red coat on and has white fringes or white borders are on the neck and around the cuffs. The cuffs are the part right here. The handcuffs were. Hands come out. It looks like the belt are the coats. Nice court. It has a belt and has four big buttons on the front. Kelly's hair is brown, and it's fairly long. It would probably go down to midway down her back. Her over her mouth is open little ways. I don't know if she's going to start smiling. They're gonna start saying something. But here we have Joe and Kelly. I had to summarize what I see in this picture very quickly. I'd say there are two kids standing, maybe on a bridge before I summarise. Let's talk about the location. Location? Looks like it could be a bridge. It could be the edge of maybe a great view, a wall, the fences. Probably to keep people back so you don't fall over. The edge in the background is really blurry. I'm not quite sure it could be a big mountain. It could be a big hill, but it may be. It's part of a park or something up, way upon a hill. And they have a fence so that people don't fall down the hill. And OK, so if I summarized his picture, I would say there are two kids standing next to offense, maybe on a bridge. Something like that. A stone bridge. And they're looking at the camera and some was taking their picture. Okay, let's see what they're talking about. Looks like Joe is going to start the conversation. Mom says silence is golden, but she talks all day long on her phone. Kelly. Yeah, Mom loves to gossip about celebrities and the drama in their lives. Joe, did you know Mom talks so loud so loudly on the phone? Oops, it's fixed that quick. Did you know Mom talk so loudly on the phone that she wakes the neighbors. Kelly Silence is golden. I'm more worried about my coat matching my shoes. Mm. Once again, let's make the idioms bold so they jump out and we can see how they're used in the conversation. All right, Joe uses it once, and Kelly uses it once. All right. Okay, I'm going to say the conversation at regular speed. Go ahead and follow along. Joe. Mom says silence is golden, but she talks all day long on her phone. Kelly. Yeah, Mom loves to gossip about celebrities and the drama in their lives. Joe, did you know Mom talk so loudly on the phone that she wakes the neighbors? Kelly Silence is golden. I'm more worried about my coat matching my shoes. All right, Joe says. Mom says silence is golden. He could have said, Mom says it's better to be quiet or Mom says it's better to not talk so much. Kelly also says silence is golden and hear Silence is golden is a sentence all by itself, which is saying something. Silence is golden. It's a statement, Okay, she could have said it's better to be quiet or it's better this to not say anything at all or just keep silent. So it looks like Mom talks a lot on her phone all day long what it says all day long here, which is another idiom. It could mean two things. We would need more information to find out. One meaning is that literally all day long when she wakes up until when she goes asleep, she never stops talking on the phone. More likely, she talks on the phone for a long time, takes a break to eat, to go the bathroom or do something like that. And she just talks for She talks all day long, not the whole day, but for large parts of the day. Maybe she has the hands free device, the blue tooth ear piece or whatever it is, and she can put the phone in your pocket, do whatever she needs to do. Go the bathroom cook, watch TV and constantly stay on the phone. Got to talk about those celebrities and celebrities. Air. Just famous people, right? Let's see. Let's put it into Google. Search what shows up when we put in celebrities. Okay, so singers, dancers, actresses, uh, famous athletes are no celebrities. They're supposed to be incredible, right? Cause we all just love to watch them. Oh, goodness. You know, it happened and oh, my goodness. She actually uses pink toilet paper. No white paper on the head, Chicken last night also. Oh, it is okay, so let's go back to conversation. So who about celebrities and the drum in their lives? Drama is another word for stress, but it's like negative stress distress, things that are causing problems, causing complications, causing headaches, causing negative stress in our lives. So, in the lives of celebrities, well, they're people, so imagine they worry about what most of us doing money. Uh, making sure kids air raised. Well, my just my kid have a good education. All my parents were getting old stuff like that, but they also have extra drama that we probably don't have to worry about, like paparazzi. Do you know what paparazzi are? Well, I think that's a great question to ask Google Image Search. I love you, Mr Google. Let's look up, paparazzi. Well, there it is, right there. Don't have to type it up. So, in short, paparazzi are the people that chase the celebrities and want to take pictures of them and then they usually if they're independent contractors, they will sell those pictures to magazines, tabloids, news agencies, social media, who knows? And they make money by taking pictures of celebrities cause Guess what everyone wants. Everyone wants to know what celebrities they're doing, what they're eating, what they're saying, what they're wearing, what perfume there wearing all this stuff. So I mean, paparazzi is it's big business and maybe some of the celebrities like it. Maybe some of the celebrities don't. I would say certain celebrities probably just eat it up like Kim Kardashian. Uh, I used to be like, Wow, that's such a born. It's just a waste of time. Now I kind of admire Kim Kardashian first. They're incredibly rich, and they've convinced people their business plan is incredible. They've convinced people toe watch them all day long to just live their life, right? So that means she has the ability to sell her perfume or clothing line her jewelry. I don't really know what she sells, but she creates his business incredible business off of people just wanting toe watch her. So I I admire her. I don't really I don't watch her I don't really care about what she's doing. Her business plan. Holy cow. It's incredible. So paparazzi are people that, like a gang of for photographers, they just follow celebrities around what they wait for celebrities hoping to get that great photo. All right, so back to the conversation. So drama in celebrities lives could be regular drama that you and I have. Or it could also be like paparazzi people chasing them around. And then they don't get as much privacy as they want stuff like that. So Mom talks all day long, really loudly, so loudly. Oh my God, Did you hear what happened with that slavery that the neighbors wake up? I but the neighbors air not so happy that Mom talks on the phone all day long. Kelly ends the conversation by saying, I'm more worried about my coat matching my shoes. And so she's comparing two things. Her coat and her shoes were looking the picture. Her coat is like a shade of red. It's like a lighter shade of red, I would say in her shoes, I would see her shoes are a darker shade of red than her coat. And so Kelly is worried. That's my coat. Match my shoes. Or in other words, is my coat look good with my shoes? Did they go together? Go together? Means do they match each other? Do they look well together? Another word. Gossip. Gossip is usually seen as a negative thing. It's talking about other people. And a lot of times I would say most of the times gossip is not very positive. So if you're talking about your neighbors Oh my goodness, did you see what she wore? I can't believe she wore those shoes with those earrings. So it's negative, right? You're gossiping about the person. When you gossip about someone, you're talking about them and they're probably not there, because if you're willing to say bad things about people when they're not there, it is very rare that you're going to say those bad things about them when they are there. So a celebrity magazines and all this stuff all she lost weight. She gained weight. She's so fat. Oh, she wore that dress. I can't believe it. So out of it is criticizing, saying negative things, so that would be gossip, gossip and rumors and things that go around that may not may or may not be true, but people talk about it and they're usually criticizing someone else. Okay. All right. So that is our second conversation in this lesson. We used the idioms. Silence is golden and a couple of pictures. And we created conversations. I had a great time. I hope you did. To have a wonderful day. 14. Conclusion & Thank You: Hey, thanks for taking this course. We hope you had a wonderful time because we had a great time creating this course. Okay. See you soon.
