It could be something that's kind of funky. I don't know. Everybody has a different taste. When we say people have different taste, it means they have different likes, things that are appealed to them that they enjoy and they desire. All right, good by a dozen eggs.

So here we go with the action has describe what's happening in this picture. And she has thick frames, right? Actually, even my glasses, my fake glasses that I use for quizzes. You could say these have thick frames, right? I have another pair of glasses, Um, and these would be frameless glasses. So the part where the lenses and there is some sort of charm on the necklace. All right, let's take a look. What is a charm? So point at it again, right? So it's just something small that you hang from the necklace, and I see Layla Almeida says. Underneath is a proposition. Yes, because we're describing location underneath the chair underneath, assured underneath the car at both ends. Okay, there's a couple of things gonna look up first. Gripping gripping means to be holding something in your hand, your gripping it with force. It's not just laying on your hand, but you're grabbing it. Angela delayed the project because she was too busy playing video games, eating popcorn and gossiping with her friends on WhatsApp. Hello is very common to eat at the movie theater. They have different kinds. My favorite kind of popcorn is Carmel caramel popcorn, and it looks like caramel, but I've always grown up spears pronouncing it caramel, our little popcorn. Ah, if you freak out. It could be good or bad. Have you ever seen, uh, like like the boy or the Beatles? If you look in the history of the fans that go to the Beatles concerts, they freak out right there like, Ah, they're screaming there crying. And there were so happy to try to get close to the Beatles. You can say they're freaky. Note Angela's contract with the advertising agency. Could a improve her romantic inhibitions be propelled her to celebrity status? See, earn her a boatload of money or d fix her bad habit of biting things? Uh, what do you think? 2. Lesson Information: Okay, so today the title is the deadline. All right, let's describe. Right. So let's take a look. What are we doing? Well, we're going to describe a lot today, so that means a lot of vocabulary pronunciation. Great stuff. Here we go. We're gonna do the summary right of this picture. This picture right here, this picture right here will be the foundation for this whole lesson today. We're going to describe the setting. The time in the place will describe the action. What's happening? The people, things that are going on. And then we're gonna describe this story. Well, let my imagination run wild, and I will tell you what is the story behind this picture. Okay. And of course, we're going to do a quiz. I have my glasses right here when the time comes. All right, I see garden in in the common saying Good evening. Hello? Hello? Right as we're going, if you guys have questions, comments, feel free to leave him in the chat box, okay? And I will try to answer. All right, here we go. Let's get started. 3. Summarize the Picture: Let's do this summary. So the summary is a short description of this picture, right? Sometimes we don't need a lot of details. We just want a quick look and have a quick way to explain something. Here we go. We can see a young Asian woman sitting in front of her laptop during the daytime. She is wearing glasses and has long brown hair. The woman is staring at the screen intently. She appears extremely stressed out and is biting the pencil held in her hands. All right, you know what time it is. Let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. And if you're doing pronunciation, put some apples in the comments he let. It lets me know that you're participating. Here we go. We can see a young Asian woman sitting in front of her laptop during the daytime. She is wearing glasses. It has long brown hair. The woman is staring at the screen intensely. She appears extremely stressed out and is biting the pencil held in her hands. Okay, so we didn't pronunciation and a short summary of this picture. There's one word that I wanted to mention. It says in the sentence. The woman is staring at the screen intently. Right? So intently means you're very focused before I'm staring at you right now. Very intently. It because it is because I'm very focused, right? It has your attention. You're really looking at it. Okay, so that is the summary. All right, but I think we need to get into more detail. 4. The Setting: Let's do this. This setting. Okay, so we're gonna be talking about the time in the place and the location. Here we go. The woman is sitting at a wooden table. The room is full of natural light coming from a window behind the Lady Theo. Time could be anywhere from early morning to early afternoon. Since it's so bright with natural light, we can assume that it's a clear, sunny day outside. Okay, so that is a description. Now it is time for pronunciation, and then we'll get to some vocabulary, right? Repeat after me. The woman is sitting at a wooden table. Room is full of natural light coming from a window behind the lady. What time could be anywhere from early morning to early afternoon? Since it's so bright with natural light, we can assume that it's a clear, sunny day outside. Okay, so a couple times in here, we see natural light, right, since it's so bright with natural light full of natural light, I mean from a window behind the lady so we can see in this part of the picture it's much brighter, right? So there's probably sun coming right through the window in shining towards her back, right? So it's very bright. And when we talk about natural light, this just means light from the sun shine right. We don't have to use a lamp. We don't have to turn on an electric light or candle or something like that. And that's natural light. And most people like natural light because it makes him feel natural calm. It's nice. It's a very clear It's easy to see. All right, let's see you, my boomer. Woomera Go indexes. Hello from Turkey. Hello. Hello, Canton. Lee says good evening. Hello? Hello? All right. Okay. So, uh, this is the first part of the setting, right? Let's keep going. There's a lot more to describe in this picture. Here we go. The location could be at the woman's home or apartment in a library or in an office building. The wall in the background is white without any decorations. Right? When we're talking about decorations, this could be a lot of things, right. When you put decorations on a wall, let's see if we can find some pictures. No, If you put it will just say wall decorations. It could be pictures of your family. It could be a design. It could be something that's kind of funky. I don't know. Everybody has a different taste. When we say people have different taste, it means they have different likes, things that are appealed to them that they enjoy and they desire right. So in the picture that we're doing, there's no decorations on the wall. It's just empty white wall. There are about a dozen colored pencils inside around container, with their sharpened tips pointing up. OK, a little bit of a lengthy sentence. But here's a few words that I think are important. One dozen is 12 right? So if you did, if you did a search for a dozen eggs, it should show on a carton with 12 eggs, a dozen eggs. All right, there we go. So a dozen is 12. So when I did the picture when I described, there are about a dozen colored pencils. So we're talking about these pencils right here, and I can't see exactly how many are. But I'm gonna say about a dozen about 12 inside around container. So that's this thing right here. And the container you can see through the sides the air could flow through the sides, but the pieces won't fall out. And now we're gonna describe the position, the positioning of the pencil, you can say with their sharpened tips pointing up right. So they are sharpened and they're ready to be used. Right? So they used a pencil sharpener or something. And whoever put these in, they put the tips up and it's possible that they put the tips up. Maybe they didn't want them to break when they put them down. I don't know. But when you grab them, you might want to be watch out cause they're gonna poke your hands. Okay. All right. So that was the description. Let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. Here we go. The location could be at the woman's home or apartment in a library or in an office building. The wall in the background is white without any decorations. There are about a dozen colored pencils inside around container, with their sharpened tips pointing up. Okay, so we did pronunciation. If you're doing pronunciation with some apples in the comments, that lets me know that you're participating, all right. Who more setting? You mean there's more to describe? Oh, yeah. Here we go. A blue notebook or a personal organizer is lying on the table near the computer. Mm. So a notebook is kind of simple rights. Just a book with paper, and you can write in it or take notes. But a personal organizer. Mm. Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing. Let's put the arrow weigh are talking about this blue thing right here. And it's just the corner of it. We can't see it completely, but we can take have a pretty good guess at what it iss. And I'm gonna guess that it is a personal organizer. Let me show you what I mean by a personal organizer. Right. Goodbye. A dozen eggs. Let's take a look at a personal organizer. All right, So it might have a planner. It might have. Ah, note pad. Something that you can use take notes or maybe take down people's personal information. Uh, something like that. So it's a personal planner. It helps organize your day what you need to do a personal organizer. Okay, Right. Let's go back. There is a comfortable black chair in front of the table, right? It since we're describing the setting Right now, we're kind of ignoring the lady cause we're just describing the environment. What is in the room, The physical objects. And we can see just the corner of a black chair here. And I think it's probably like a leather office chair. That's what I'm gonna guess. So if we look for a picture of a leather office chair, I'm going to guess that it's something maybe not as nice as this one. There's something similar may be like this. I don't know a comfortable chair either way. Okay, the laptop is open and we can see a black keyboard with white letters, numbers and characters. All right, so we're talking about the laptop right here, and we can see the keypad, right? Or the keyboard, and it's got black black, uh, black keyboard. The little keys are black, and then the letters are white. So the letters, numbers and characters when we say characters were talking about kind of those funny characters. The symbols like these these kind of characters, right? We wouldn't call those letters. We wouldn't call those numbers, but you can call them characters. Sometimes people will call them special characters, right? The laptop is probably an Apple Mac book. That's what I'm gonna guess. We can't quite see the logo, but how thin it is and just the layout of the keyboard and the touch pad. So this is the touch pad where you move around the most, Um, when you put the arrow so we can see that, All right, this is called the touch pad right here, and I'm gonna get said, it's an Apple Mac book. All right, let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. A blue notebook or a personal organizer is lying on the table near the computer. There's a comfortable black chair in front of the table. The laptop is open and we can see a black keyboard with white letters, numbers and characters. Laptop is probably an Apple Mac book. Okay, so we just finished describing the setting. We're talking about the time, the place, maybe the weather. What's happening in this physical location? 5. The Action: s so here we go with the action has describe what's happening in this picture. Asian woman is then it might be in her twenties or thirties. She has long brown hair, which flows down over her shoulders. All right, so we're talking about her hair. And when we say it flows down, it's similar to when you talk about maybe water or waterfall. The water flows over the edge. You can say her hair, her hair flows down. My hair does not flow because they're hardly is any hair, and there's no hair to flow. But she has long hair, which flows down over her shoulders. All right, let's take a look. The woman has dark brown eyes and eyebrows, right? And just to make sure where we know what eyebrows are, let's put the arrow there. So we have two eyebrows, right? That's one eyebrow, another eyebrow. Just the hair that's above your right. And we can say that she has dark eyebrows and dark brown eyes as well. That's what I'm gonna say. She's wearing large glasses with thick frames, which are pushed part way down her nose. All right, so first we're talking about her glasses And she has thick frames, right? Actually, even my glasses, my fake glasses that I use for quizzes you could say these have thick frames, right? I have another pair of glasses. Um, and these would be frameless glasses. So the part where the lenses right here, there's no frame which is connected on the side. So the frames go here, but here is frameless. There's no frame, but in this picture, she has thick frames, right? And we're talking about right here. And here's interesting how we can describe the location of the glasses on her face there. Pushed part way down her nose. So for glasses were all the way on their pushed up, then she would be looking through right. But it looks like she has her glasses kind of here. And she's looking over the top of the glasses, right? And I don't know why. Maybe sometimes people's glasses, you know, they slide down and they pushed him back up. Or maybe she just put them down because they're comfortable there and she likes to look over the top. I don't know, but we can say pushed heart way down her nose. Right. Okay. And oh, Here's another thing. If the glasses were all the way down to the end of her nose, I don't like an old teacher who's like, Hello, Right? You could say that the glasses are at the end on the end of her or his his or her nose, right? Or all the way up, pushed in all the glasses, air all the way on them. Okay, all right. So let's do in pronunciation, all right? And also remind you guys, if you have questions as we're going along in the comments, feel free to ask, We go repeat after me. The Asian woman is thin and might be in her twenties or thirties. She has long brown hair, which flows down over her shoulders. The woman has dark brown eyes and eyebrows. She is wearing large glasses with thick frames, which are pushed part way down her nose. Okay, moving forward with more action. Here we go. The woman is wearing a dark red or maroon colored short sleeve sweater. Okay, a lot of adjectives here. Dark reds were talking about this part of her clothing, right? So it's dark red or maroon, and maroon is kind of a mix It's like a dark red somewhere in between dark red and brown. Let's see if we confined. Go to the pictures and we will find the color will do a maroon sweater. Okay, so maroon is It's a very dark red right, almost like the color of maybe red wine, almost like a very, very deep, dark red. So that is maroon and we can save. Her sweater is maroon, maroon colored, and it's a short sleeve sweater. It doesn't look like her sleeves are rolled up. It just looks like they're short and they go down to her elbows right. Okay, the sweater is open in the front and underneath the woman has on a white blouse. Okay, so blouse is just a kind of shirt, and it's very common for women. Toe where it's called the blouse, Right? So she has the maroon colored sweater, and then she has the white blouse underneath all right, and Leah Huda says, Hello, teacher in the comments Garden says Maroon five. Yes, right. That's the same word. Is the band right? The music band Maroon five. I'm OK. So we have a maroon sweater and let's see issues as a white blouse underneath, but she probably put on the blouse and then she put the sweater on top of the block Us. Hey, she is wearing a thin silver necklace around her neck, right, So we can see it right here. And I'm gonna try toe put the arrow so that we can take a look at it. We'll put it in the front. There we go. But we're pointing to the small, thin necklace that is around her neck. All right. Ah, honey. In a mosawi says hello, teacher. In the comments, I say hello and welcome. We're taking a look at this little necklace. It's just a thin necklace around her neck, right? And there is some sort of charm on the necklace. All right, let's take a look. What is a charm? So point at it again. Ah, charm is just like a decoration that you put on a necklace. But let's see if we confined on some pictures that, uh, would would bench, it's you so we'll say a necklace charm, right? So it's just something small that you hang from the necklace, and I see Leila Almeida says Underneath is a proposition. Yes, because we're describing location underneath the chair underneath, assured underneath the car. Something like that. All right, all right. And my message yet in staccato waves, the hand. I think you're saying hello. So I say Welcome. All right. So a charm is just a small kind of piece of jewelry that you can hang from a necklace, right? It could be something that has meaning to you. Or it could just be something that you like, Maybe just a simple heart or something like this in the picture. It's kind of it's difficult to see exactly what the charm is, but there's something but there's a thin chain, which is the necklace. But at the end of it, there's something you know, what kind of looks like silver? I'm not really sure what it is, but I would call it a charm. Okay, so we describe this part. Let's do pronunciation. And if you do in pronunciation, put some apples in the comments. Here we go. Repeat after me. The woman is wearing a dark red or maroon colored short sleeve sweater. The sweater is open in the front and underneath, the woman has on a white blouse. She is wearing a thin silver necklace around her neck. There is some sort of charm on the necklace. Okay, so that's pronunciation. Make another note when we say some sort of charm, right? We could also say some kind of time. Right? There was some sort of charm. We don't know exactly what it is we're saying some kind, some sort of object. Alright, Right. Let's do some more action. Here we go. The lady is sitting in a comfortable black leather chair. She is looking over the top of her glasses directly at the computer screen. All right, so if we say someone is looking directly at something right now, I'm looking directly at the camera. It's like your eyes. You can see your eyes are locked on something. They're very focused on something. So this girl, this lady, she is looking directly at the computer screen. Something has her attention, and she is looking over the top. It looks to me like she's looking over the top of her glasses. Yeah, okay. Her eyebrows are raised and her eyes are open. Right? So if we take a look, I'm gonna put the arrow at her eyebrows. Look, I don't think her eyebrows air in the normal position. If she just had a calm, relaxed face. Eyebrows, they're kind of up. It shows more emotion or intensity, right? Something has caused the woman to look stressed, frustrated and perhaps overwhelmed. Okay, Overwhelmed is a good word. I think most people know what stressed is. It means the situation is difficult than it's stressful and it's causing. You may be mental difficulty frustrated just means, Ah, there's something with the situation. It's not working right. I'm upset. I'm a little bit angry. It's not going home. I thought it would be. Let's take a look. Always a good time to go to the dictionary. Let's take a look at. We'll put in the word overwhelmed and see what pops up what other synonyms that we can get for. All right, So, uh, it could be a verb. But let's see if we can find the directed at the, uh is gonna have the tentative. But if you feel overwhelmed, there you go. I see past tense birth. I feel overwhelmed with way. What will use this? Um, give too much of a thing is too much. If you're overwhelmed with something, then you feel like it's just Ah, it's too much stuff I can't take it overwhelmed them. Here we go, inundated. You're flooded with work. You're swamped with work. There's just so much they will take. A look at the picture was saying Overwhelmed person. I think this 10 right, they have too much work to do or this this lady right here. She's overwhelmed with the amount of study, and she has to do with the amount of books she has to read. Let's see Leila medicines. Sorry, I did not find apples. I will focus in your explanations. It's okay if you can't find apples. It's alright. Leah Huda says it is. Is it the same as to defeat? Overwhelmed is, Let's see. It could be if you overwhelm the forces like there are two armies in one army comes and just completely takes over the other one. You could say they overwhelmed them, their energy and their forces, and their attack was too much. That's one possibility, and it's also very common. When we're talking about Lissy. I'll say overwhelmed with work, right? So I mean, this picture right here I can't even see his head because his down. He has all the work on top. Let's see, Ghazal H says. Could it be used when someone is stuck in an awkward situation? I say it's very possible, especially if the situation is one where you feel awkward, you feel uncomfortable and you feel like you want to leave. You want to get out of there. So let's take a look. Uh, any other pictures air good ago? This is like working. She's trying to do so much at once. He probably feels overwhelmed. Let's see. Like Ghazal, H said, could it be used when someone is stuck in an awkward situation? So awkward is another word for uncomfortable. And if the situation is strong enough, I would say overwhelmed could work. You have. Maybe your boss or someone is just screaming at two and yelling at you, and you're just like, Ah, it feels awkward. Nobody really likes to be yelled at. It could be overwhelming as well, because it's a, uh, let's see. Maybe I'll put in overwhelming and see if that one shows up every go adjective overwhelming , very large, profuse, enormous, immense inordinate night, an overwhelming feeling of gratitude so could also be in a good situation. I suddenly had this strong, overwhelming, huge feeling, strong feeling of gratitude, of being thankful for something. Okay, so it depends on the situation. It's a very, uh, useful word. Leila Menace has overwhelmed a lot of work. Yes, yes, that fit. All right, so here we go. A school bag. Let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. Here we go. The lady is sitting in a comfortable black leather chair. She is looking over the top of her glasses directly at the computer screen. Her eyebrows were raised and her eyes are open. Something has caused the woman to look stressed, frustrated and perhaps overwhelmed. All right, I think we have even more action. Here we go. Woman's hands are gripping a yellow number two pencil at both ends. Okay, there's a couple of things gonna look up first. Gripping gripping means to be holding something in your hand. You're gripping it with force. It's not just laying on your hand, but you're grabbing it. So let's see. Let's take see if we can find some pictures for grippy because it's it's Ah, it's a useful word will say, gripping the tool. How about that? Well, we need to see a hand so we'll say gripping with a baseball bat. Okay, so if you are familiar with baseball, part of the game is to try to hold the bat and hit the ball when they throw it at you. But the hands we could say they are gripping are gripping the bet. They're holding them tightly. They're holding them securely so that the bat doesn't fall out of their hands. So they're gripping it. Right? Let's take a look. Here we are. Okay, so a yellow number two pencil. I remember this from high school in school whenever you had, like, the tests when you had to fill in like the where they call him the bubble sheets you guys ever take Bubble sheet test bobble sheet ist Ah, yes, the bubble sheets. Eso. It's usually multiple choice, and you have to answer a whole bunch of questions and all that good stuff. And when I was growing up, they always said you have to use a yellow or doesn't have to do is not to be yellow, but had to be a number two pencil. So a number two pencil is just a kind of pencil in schools like to use these, I guess. And the thing about it is that usually say number two on them. So it's the type of lead or the type of writing piece in there that makes a mark on the paper, though. These air number two pencils and they seem to work well with bubble sheets. I remember these pencils who I used to use a lot of these princes. I actually you know what I preferred. I preferred a mechanical pencil. If we can find it mechanical, they go Mechanical number two pencil. Yes, I used to like these big ones, huh? Yes, I use a lot of these. I like them better cause you when you need lead, you don't have to go sharpen that. You could just click out some more. All right, let's see. Ghazal H says her mimic is kind of ambiguous, both overwhelmed and enthusiastic at the same time. It's possible, right? Sometimes when we're trying to read someone or we're looking at someone at their emotions, it looks like they could have mixed emotions. Asean, very Qala, Gina says. Hi. Hello. See Louie, Liotta says. What's the difference between gripping and grabbing please. Good question. And Leah Voter says, I like this type of pencil. It's my favorite. Yes, I like them, too. All right, let's see. Gripping and grabbing. All right, let's see. Grabbing the no candy. Let's see what shows them. Okay, Well, when I think of gripping, when I think of grabbing, I think of more of a quick motion. You're going in, you grab it and you pull it away. So this even you see my hand, you go in, you grab it and you pull it away. You grab something and you pull it back. All right. But when you grip something, it's already in your hand and you are squeezing it. I think before we didn gripping the baseball bet, ripping the baseball that. So if you're gripping something, it's already in your hands and your just squeezing it right when you're grabbing something , usually it's a movement. You're going to grab it and then you pull it back, and then maybe you already have it in your hand, and then you start to grip it, right? You're squeezing it. But grab is more of the motion of quick grab, and then you take okay, hopefully that answers your question. They're similar, but a little bit different. All right, here we go. So that was a number two pencil. Here we go. The middle part of the pencil is clenched between her teeth. Right. So cliched is, uh, pressing down on something. But she has Let's see how you could see my face. But when you say your teeth are clenched, are that you're biting down on something, you're clinched. You can also say that your fist is clinched, clinched. You have your fist like this, and you're gonna punch someone. You clench your fist, you put your fingers together, you clinch. So clinch means to come down with force and so clenching your teeth. Your But you could also say that something is plunged between your teeth. But this late, she has a number two pencil clenched between her teeth. Right? All right, let's see. Hopefully that is clear. What clinched means it's pressed. Press down between some. She might be biting the pencil out of frustration or habit. So frustration means she's like, Ah, she's upset with situation. It's not working out how she wants or it could be. Have it right. Let's see if we confined sometimes people without even thinking about it. They two on things, right? So maybe two ng fingernails when people just now this is kind of gross, but people like this to their fingernails. But I need to show you the pictures. There we go. So chewing your fingernails, maybe someone's watching a movie, and they're really watching it. And they just started to in on their fingernails, and they don't even know they're doing. Uh, sometimes people will, too, on pencils, Right. So they too, on it. Maybe they're thinking about something or I don't know. And they just have a habit. Habit is just something that you do over and over again. And sometimes you don't even know you're doing it. It's just kind of a routine. And if it's a bad habit, you have to, you know, work and realize that you're doing it and then work against it. All right, Well, here you go. Another kid to in on a pencil. I remember when I was little, it was common for kids to true on their erasers. Write the part at the end of the pencil. Okay. All right. Very Collina says. Please make your music more quietly. All right. Is it a little bit too loud? And I could turn it down. Right. Okay, so I just turn down the music a little bit. Let me let me guy, But let me know if it's too loud or what you guys think. All right? Oh, here we go. Next one, if she bites hard enough, there will be teeth marks on the pencil. Mm. All right. Let's see Leah. Who says my habit is to watch able lingo. Hopefully, it's a good habit. All right, let's see what we're talking about. Teeth marks on the pencil, teeth marks on a pencil. Right? There we go. So when you bite down into the pencil, it's quite soft. And then there will be marks left from your teeth. All right, so those air teeth marks. Okay. All right. Here we go. Let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me once that Gasol H has perhaps extroverted people do it to get rid of their stress. I am not a psychologist, but anything is possible. Ah, Have you heard of stress balls? Best balls. Let's see if I can find a picture Stress balls. Ever heard that you know when you get no, maybe something's upsetting you. You can put something in your hand and you squeeze it, and it helps to relieve the stress. Or, in other words, get rid of the stress. Do you squeak? I hate my boss. Just squeeze or I hate my whatever. I'm having such a difficult time with my kid and your squeeze this stressful. So it's supposed to work and, uh, interest in stress balls. All right, but it's supposed to help you. Calm down. All right, so here we go. Let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. The woman's hands are gripping a yellow number two pencil at both ends. The middle part of the pencil is clenched between her teeth. She might be biting the pencil out of frustration or habit. If she bites hard enough, there will be teeth marks on the pencil. Okay. All right. I see Leah who to put some apples. That means she's doing pronunciation. Thank you. I see. Uh, Leah, who says no problems at all? I feel relaxed. Maybe you don't need a stress ball. All right, let's see. Leila Almeida says it was common. Or pencil or pen. Right. Okay, 6. The Story: I think it's time to describe the story. Mm. So we need to know a little bit more information was going on behind the situation behind the scenes. What's happening? And we can use my imagination. Here we go. This is Angela, and she was contracted by an advertising agency two months ago to promote a new line of ladies clothing. Nice long sentence there. Okay, so the girls or the lady's name is Angela and she was contracted. That means that she came into an agreement. She made an agreement with, like, shaking hands kind of agreement with a company with an advertising agency that she would do some work for them. And they made the contractor the agreement two months ago. And what she's supposed to do is create something to promote a new line of ladies clothing and promote Just means. Let everybody know about it. Put the information out there. Maybe it's online advertising. Davis magazines, newspaper billboards. But she wants to promote the new line of ladies clothing in a new line of ladies. Clothing just means that a company, a clothing store, maybe designer, they have a new group of clothes that they've come up with and they want to show the world . Excuse me. All right. It was an extremely lucrative agreement. Who so extremely not just low level, but really high level. Extremely. And now we have lucrative. Lucrative is an interesting vocabulary. Word doesn't excuse me. So let's take a look. What does lucrative mean? Right here, regardless to hear the pronunciation lucrative. Lucrative, Lucrative. Okay, so lucrative means reducing a great deal of profit. So we're talking about money, right? We look at some of the synonyms profitable, profit making gainful room renew. Maria tive Well paid, high pain. Bankable. Alright, Leah. Who says to promote to let everyone know about something? That's right. All right. The opposite of lucrative would be unprofitable, so her deal was extremely lucrative. That means she's gonna make a ton of money if she finishes the contract. All right. Angela decided to procrastinate and not start working on the project right away. All right, so if someone procrastinates, they decide. You know, I'll just wait. I'll start later. I'm not going to do it now. I'm going to procrastinate. I'm gonna wait. I'm not going to start working right now, okay? Angela had more exciting plans. Okay. All right. Here we go. Let's do some pronunciation. Repeat after me for me. This is Angela. Way. Start again. Sorry. Take a drink first. Okay. Oh, here we go. Repeat after me. This is Angela. And she was contract. This is Angela, and she was contracted by an advertising agency two months ago to promote a new line of ladies clothing. It was an extremely lucrative agreement. Angela decided to procrastinate and not start working on the project right away. Angela had more exciting plans. Okay, I see Garden says What's the difference between clothes and clothing and how you spell that ? You spell that cloths. I think you mean clothes and clothing or type it into the comments. Close. C l O T H E s. That's clothes and clothing. They're pretty much the same thing, right? It's the pieces of clothing or shirt, pants, whatever. That's on your body. Uh, you like my clothing. Do you like my clothes? They're almost interchangeable. Okay. All right. Let's go to the next section of the story. Angela delayed the project because she was too busy playing video games, eating popcorn and gossiping with her friends on WhatsApp. Right? And popcorn. I assume you guys know what popcorn is, but it's delicious, so we will take a look at it Anyway. Let's see some nice pictures of move that back over the study. See some nice pictures of popcorn. Hello. Is very common to eat at the movie theater. They have different kinds. My favorite kind of popcorn is Carmel caramel popcorn. And it looks like caramel. But I've always grown up spurs pronouncing it caramel our little popcorn. Um, it's tasty. Caramel caramel popcorn. This is probably my favorite kind of popcorn. Not very healthy, but very tasty. Okay, I need to stay focused here. Let's go back. All right. Now, the contract deadline is only two days away. Boy, The deadline that was the title of this whole lesson deadline. What is a deadline? Well, I'm glad you asked. We have a nice, lovely dictionary that we can explore, and we're gonna find deadline. Let's hear their pronunciation deadline deadline deadline, OK. And the official definition. The latest time or date by which something should be completed. All right, So, time limit limit. Finishing date, finishing time. The deadline for submissions is February 5th. So if you submit their U turn in your work on February 6th or February 7th or any time after February 5th to say the deadline already passed is too late. OK, where will the contract deadline is? Only two days away? And she had sign the contract like two months ago. All right, Angela freaked out after opening her laptop and seeing how much work has yet to be finished . Uh huh. All right, I see very Cartagena says. When I ate popcorn or some fried food, I begin to cough because my stomach suffers. Maybe indigestion. Indigestion is when we eat something in her stomach gets upset, right? And it's not good. Okay, so let's talk about freaked out. Angela freaked out, opening a laptop and seeing how much work. OK, so it's We talk about freaked out. I think it's just good to see some pictures. I will say, freaked out. Say freaked out person. How about that? What is the idiom? A picture is worth 1000 words, so these people are freaked out. Something has made them upset or scared them are shocked them or something. They're freaked out. All right, let's see, Liotta says. Please explain what's deadline. I'm not sure if there's a delay. Qusai, Just explain what a deadline Waas. It's the time limit is when something needs to be turned in. Like if, uh, if you're Professor says you have a deadline of two weeks, you need to finish by two weeks. The deadline All right, goes all H has. Appalled who? That's not bad. Appalled is usually negative, right? If you're appalled by something you like, that's terrible. That's horrible. It's incredibly bad. If you freak out, it could be good or bad. Have you ever seen Ah, like like the boy or the Beatles? If you look in the history of the fans that go to the Beatles concerts, they freak out right there like Ah, they're screaming there crying. And there were so happy to try to get close to the Beatles. You can say they're freaking out, but you might not be in a bad way. It might be with so much excitement, however, in this situation the lady named Angela she is freaking out because she opened her laptop and she's like, Oh my goodness, I still have so much work to do and the deadline the contract deadline is only two days away. My time limit. Okay, Right. Here we go. Repeat after me. Angela delayed the project because she was too busy playing video games, eating popcorn and gossiping with her friends on what's out? Okay, that doesn't now the contract deadline is only two days away. Angela freaked out after opening her laptop and seeing how much work has yet to be finished . Okay, All right, we have a little bit more for the story. Let's do it. One of Angela's bad habits is chewing on things. Whenever she gets stressed, she is definitely stressed at the moment when we say at the moment, we could say right now, she's definitely stressed. Right now, I'm will tell whether or not Angela is able to successfully complete her contract with the advertising agency. All right, I see apples in the comments. You guys were doing pronunciation. Great, right? So time will tell is actually another idiom. It's pretty simple. One to understand. I think that the future will give us the information, right Time will tell. Uh, the future will tell us whether or not if, if she is able to complete her contract with the advertising agency. To be honest, her chances don't look good. All right. To be honest, as a common phrase to just say, you know, look, I'm going to be direct with you. I'm going to be honest with you. To be honest, her chances don't look good. The possibility that she'll finish the contract on time. That's so good. Okay. All right. Guzzle H says she has a lot on her plate. I think that is a nice, juicy idiom. Yes. So the idiom she has a lot on her plate or to have a lot on your plate. We're not just talking about food, right things along your plate. We're talking about a lot of maybe projects things you need to do things that you're busy with. And it's a lot to do, right? Great. Wonderful. In the idiom. OK, repeat after me. We're almost to the quiz. Here we go. Repeat up loud after me. One of Angela's bad habits is to in on things. Whenever she gets stressed, she is definitely stressed at the moment. Time will tell whether or not Angela is able to successfully complete her contract with the advertising agency. To be honest, her chances don't look good. Okay, I see Liotta has another idiom. She's up to her neck. Right? So the work is kind of like the water, right? It's so deep your up to your neck and it's uncomfortable. You're overwhelmed. Well, up to your neck. Another great idiom. You just have so much work to do, in a sense. Okay. Wonderful. We just finished the story talking about Angela. 7. Quiz & Review: Okay, it's time for a quiz. Oh, and I see glasses on the screen, which is a good indicator for me to put on my glasses. All right, here we go. Let's do it. Question number one. Why can we assume that it's a nice day outside? A. There are people with glasses. Be there. Mears in the room. See, there are many cute pencils or D. There's a lot of natural light. All right, here's some music. Okay, so why can we assume that it's a nice day outside? MM longer answers. This time, the answer is D. There's a lot of natural light. Okay, so we have the picture over here, can make it a little bit bigger and is very bright on this side of the room, and it looks like natural light. There's probably a big window over there. The natural light is coming in, and because of the natural light, we can assume that it's a nice day. Outside. It was a rainy, cloudy day. You wouldn't have a lot of nice natural light. Okay, now let's see the other answers. There are people with glasses, kind of irrelevant. It's not important to both the amount of light. There are mirrors in the room. Okay. You know, maybe they will reflect the light, but yeah, not so much. There's a better answer. There are many cute pencils. Okay, maybe the pencils air cute, but it's not talking about a nice day or why. It's nice day out. So these the best answer. There's a lot of natural light. Question number two, which is not a likely location of this picture, which is not a likely location of this picture. A A room in an office building. Be a hospital waiting room. See a quiet study room at home or D. A popular university library. Mm. Let's hear some music. - Okay , So which is not a likely location of this picture? Right. So the answer is be, ah, hospital waiting room, right. If you're in the hospital waiting room, especially, was like the emergency room. You get people crying people screaming babies, crying and wailing. It's just a loud environment. It's not a very good place for work. So all of the other possibilities A room in an office building? Sure possible A quiet study room at home? Sure. Popular university library. Sure. Most libraries have quiet sections. Or maybe the whole libraries quiets. Great place for doing work. All right. Question number three. What is hanging from the woman's necklace? A. Some kind of charm. Be some kind of rock. See some kind of earring or D? Some kind of token. What do you think? Okay, so what is hanging from the woman's necklace? Well, some kind of charm, right? I think, in the description below. Use some sort, but sort is another way to say kind, some kind of charm. So it's the decoration. The decorative piece, which is hanging from her necklace. See if we can make the picture a little bit bigger. All right. So there is the necklace. It's a thin, thin necklace. And on the end, hanging down is a charm, right? Just a small piece. Maybe a heart, maybe. Anay Angel. I don't know. Some something, Right? Okay. Some kind of rock. Probably not Some kind of earring. Doesn't work because you were a nearing on your ears and some kind of token. What is a token? Well, when I think of a token on second here, let's take a look in the dictionary. Our token. All right. So I think of when you go to play video games and they don't have it. They kind of use electronic cards nowadays that I've seen. What? I was a kid, you would get tokens and you put them into the video games, and then you could play. So one token. No, this is a token. Okay, Right. Let's go back. Right. Question number four. The woman could be feeling a violent and creepy Be friendly and disappointed. See? Worried and discouraged. I de stressed and hungry. Ah, - Okay . I think this is a good question because it has some good vocabulary. Bigger words to Okay, So the woman could be feeling Mrs impossibilities here. But if I have to choose the best one, I would choose C worried and discouraged. All right, So worried just means that you're kind of scared of your stress to your bit upset about something discouraged means that you feel Ah, I feel bad that I didn't, you know, do something, or I feel like now it's gonna be really difficult to do something. So I feel like I'm discouraged, and I I feel less energy to move forward, feel discouraged. And we talked about this lady. She only has two days left before she has to finish her project, and she probably won't do it. All right, let's take a look at the answers, which don't quite work, right? A. Says violent. Violent is like You want to hurt something or hurt someone? Hopefully what? Maybe she wants to hurt the pencil cause she's biting it. But so what creepy means, Like strange and kind of scary. Kind of like you. Freaky. Maybe friendly just means nice, kind, disappointed. You know, you are unhappy that something happened, stressed off. That's a perfect word and hungry. Well, it's possible that she's hungry, but we didn't talk about anything. But since she's too in the pencil, maybe she's our I'm so hungry I could eat a pencil. But either way, see is the best answer because we have two words that really describe her situation. She's worried she's upset and she's discouraged. He's like I feel overwhelmed is too much work. Maybe I can't do it. Hey, okay, so C is the best answer. Worried and discouraged. Question Number five. Angela's contract with the advertising agency could a improve her romantic inhibitions be propelled her to celebrity status, See, earn her a boatload of money or d fix her bad habit of biting things. Uh, what do you think? - Okay , so on this one, we have longer answers, right? So we have to What do we know about this picture of a situation and these answers? Okay, so here we go. Angela's contract with at advertising agency could see earned her a boatload of money. Eso the word that we used before was lucrative. Way didn't just say lucrative. We said extremely lucrative. All right, so if you get a boat load of something, it could be of money, maybe a boatload of I don't know, books or boatload of love boat load of happiness. It's a huge amount. So if you have a bullet of money, you have a lot of money, a ton of money, So much money. Before we said this contract contract could be extremely lucrative. So assuming that she finishes it, she could earn a boatload of money. All right, let's see the answers that don't work improve her romantic inhibitions No. Romantic. You know, like love and relationship kind of stuff. Improved means to make better inhibitions means they're things that are difficult for you to do, right? Maybe it's from a romantic inhibition. Might be that, you know, she stays at home all the time. She thinks about having a boyfriend, but she's too afraid to go out and maybe meet people. So an inhibition is something that you don't want to do. It kind of holds you back. It's something that you don't feel comfortable doing. All right. Propel her to celebrity status. The first celebrity status means like you're really famous. You're really popular. Propel means to shoot you forward, push you forward, advance your career moving forward, right. So propel her to celebrity status. Well, I don't know. We didn't get any information about that. So, uh, me, the contract will make her a lot of money, but we don't know if it will make her celebrity. It's possible. But we didn't get any information about that and d fix her bad habit of biting things. I think sees a better answer. But I suppose if she has a boatload of money, a ton of money and she can maybe pay for professional help and they could help her, she can buy a stress ball and squeeze this dress ball instead of, uh, biting her pencils. Okay, so the best answer here is See? Earned her a boatload of money. Angela's contract with the advertising agency could earn her a boatload of money. Earned her. Ah, lot of money. Okay. All right. So we just finished the quiz. Great. All right. So what did we do today? Well, in this lesson we did. Let's describe, we did the summary. We did this. Setting the action, the story.
