Transcripts

1. Introduction: We're gonna take a look at a lousy friend who we kind of have an idea from the conversation . Right in the context, Let's take a look at other ways to say, Ah, lousy friend. I think the pictures kind of explain for themselves. But here are other ways to say a lousy friend, you could say an awful friend, an appalling friend, a second, a great friend who so many options. And before we talk about them, let's do a little pronunciation. So repeat after me. Ah, lousy friend. An awful friend. Okay, so I imagine there are some new words here. Or maybe words that you're not very familiar with. Like abysmal. But all of these have a very similar meaning to lousy. Lousy Just means it sucks is not good, right? If something is utterly delightful, it is a extraordinarily painful be absolutely awful. See incredibly awesome. De totally unbelievable. Here's your music 2. Lesson Information: All right. Well, we're alive. Yes. I'm so happy. I don't know why I get so happy when I see the green light letting me know that we're live . Okay. Either way, here we are. Um, let's make the most of it. Okay, So in this live lesson, we're going to use the theme end of the day. All right, So here's the question. What are we studying? Okay. Or in the comments? I see yield is too gay. Hello? Hello? Welcome. All right. So what are we studying in this lesson lesson in this English lesson, we're going to talk about an Indio, describe and summarize a picture. Here's a picture and the idiom to create a conversation. Then we're going to use pictures to explain vocabulary and phrases in the conversation. Well, and, of course, test you with the quiz. Okay, so let's take a quick preview of what we're going to be doing in this lesson. Well, we're gonna talk about the idiom. We're gonna talk about the phrase reject your proposal and awe. Teddy bears. Oh, nice talk about a picture. Make a conversation. Talk about a lousy friend. Your breath stinks. Poker game. Ube left the part. Absolutely wonderful. And of course, my favorite. The quiz. Woo, Right. We're going to do a lot today. Great, Let's get started. 3. Explain the Idiom: first, let's take a look at the idiom end of the day, OK, and I should also add that feel free to leave comments. I'll keep my eye on the comment so I can answer your questions and, uh, talk about your comments. Okay, so the idiom is end of the day. End of the day. Other ways to say end of the day are ultimately in the end after giving it some thought. So something is happening, and you're kind of getting to the conclusion of your thoughts, and you're going to make a decision. So another way is after taking all things into consideration after thinking for a while, I m at the end of the day, right here is an example. At the end of the day, we decided to reject your proposal to spend $1000 for a giant teddy bear in the office. So here's the example of the idiom. End of the day. We could also say, after giving it some thought, we decided to reject your proposal to spend $1000 for a giant teddy bear in the office. Let's talk about the phrase reject your proposal. Uh, the pictures say it all. Okay, so here are other ways to say, Reject your proposal. You could say, deny your request. You could say not to use your idea. It also say, dismiss your plan and forget about your way of doing it. Right. So these are all similar ways to say, reject your proposal. So you had an idea, or someone had an idea. And people like, No, we're gonna deny it. We're going to reject it. We're not gonna take it. All right. So let's do a little bit of pronunciation. Repeat after me. Reject your proposal. Deny your request, not use your idea. Dismiss your plan. Forget about your way of doing it. Right. So this is from the example at the end of the day, after thinking about it for a while, we decided to reject your proposal proposal. We decided to deny your request to spend $1000 for a giant teddy bear. Teddy bear. Oh, Teddy bear. Everyone loves teddy bears. Right? So if you spent $1000 on a teddy bear, it would be, ah, huge. Probably a huge Ted teddy bear, which would be kind of interesting in the office, but completely useless. All right, let's see. We have a question. Yield is too gay. Says refused. Your request can be used. Let's see. Tour refuse and deny are almost the same. Have very close. Similar meanings. So if you refuse something, you deny something. You say no to something you don't want it. So yes, you could say refused your request, right? You could also say refused your plan, right? Refused your proposal. We didn't want it right, so we denied it. We refused it. Right, So that's right. Refused Your request can be used. So here we have pictures of teddy bears, cute teddy bears. But the work budget. The office budget for spending money. Probably not a good idea to spend $1000 on a huge teddy bear. Right In these pictures, you can see no denied, no rejected. Okay, so that was idiom. And the example one more time is at the end of the day, we decided to reject your proposal to spend $1000 right giant Teddy bear in the office. And we might fire you too, if this is how you use the money from our company 4. Describe & Summarize the Picture: Okay, so now we're going to take a look at a picture. Oh, let's take a look at this picture and we're going to talk about it. Describe it. So in the comments, feel free to let me know what you see. What words come to your mind, what you think about the picture or just describe it with me. Okay, so we have two men. We have Fred and we have Larry, right? And I would say, These are old men, right? It looks like they have their older than probably have a lot of wrinkles, white hair. And I think Fred looks a little bit older than Larry. But that's just my opinion. Let's see, they are outside. And I would say it is possibly that it's early in the morning. Maybe, Uh, and I think it's kind of cold out because they both have long winter jackets on and they have hats. The hats aren't really warm hats, but is better than nothing, because there it's not covering their ears right so their ears can still get cold. But I would still say it's pretty cold out because I mean, Fred's jacket even is, I think, a scarf. Maybe I don't know if that's his jacket or just a scarf, but they're pretty heavy jackets and friends wearing gloves. And they have long pants. Fred has kind of a dark grey or brown cap, right? I would say Larry's is a hat and, like, kind of like a taxi drivers, hat and friends is more like a baseball cap. Uh, see, Fred's coat is kind of, Ah, bluish green, gray, something or other. Who's kind of old. Fred is holding a bicycle. He's standing next to the bicycle and he's holding onto the handlebars. Looks like he's carrying something, some sort of like briefcase or something hanging from the bicycle and the bicycle looks kind of like a regular bicycle. Larry has a dark coat on his pants or his hands are in his pockets. He has long pants and right, I say, behind them. Over here is some sort of a bulletin board. Remove this out of the way. Ah, bulletin board, where you can post pictures or advertise thing. Maybe there are animals or pets. Maybe people want to sell their puppies and kittens. I don't know, and I would say this season is it could be fall because the leaves fall or maybe early winter, depending where they are. There aren't any leaves on the trees, and it looks like this kind of cold up. OK, so that's the picture if we had to summarize the picture. In other words, if we had to describe the picture just using a few short sentences, we could say to Old men are talking with each other outside New York. A street almost on the street, right? It's morning, and it seems kind of cold cold out, right? One man has a bicycle, and the other, the other doesn't. Both men are wearing a hat end winter jacket. Okay, so this would be summarizing the come the picture. So let's read it again. Here we go to old men are talking with each other outside near a street. It's morning and it seems kind of cold out. One man has a bicycle and the other doesn't. Both men are wearing a hat in winter jacket. Okay. Oh, this is an opportunity for pronunciation practice. A lot of friends enunciation practice. Okay, so repeat after me will do it in sections. Repeat out loud. And if you are give me some apples in the comments and let me know you're participating. Repeat after me. Two old men are talking with each other outside nearest street. It's morning and it seems kind of cold out. One man has a bicycle and the other doesn't. Both men are wearing a hat and winter jacket. Okay, so we took a look at the picture. Then we summarize the picture. Ah ha. I see an apple in the comments. That means you're doing the pronunciation. Wu a red one end a green one. Thank you. Tasty, tasty. 5. Create a Conversation: tasty. Tasty. Okay, so let's use this picture with Fred and Larry and let's have a conversation. And you know that my conversations will probably be a little strange, but we're going to learn and make sure you understand how to use the idiom and phrases and vocabulary in the conversation. So here we go. Let's have a little bit of fun. Fred is going to talk first. Okay, here we go at the end, but of the day you're a lousy friend, and you breath stinks. Osada most says hello. Hello, teacher. Hello. Hello. We're just starting the conversation, so Fred starts it with at the end of the day. You're a lousy friend, and your breath stinks. Well, Larry says, Is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago? Fred off course. You bluffed and stole the pot. That was going to change my life. Now all I have is a bicycle. It's a nice bicycle. Okay, Larry, at the end of the day, I think your bicycle is absolutely wonderful. Mm. Fred, it was great talking to you. I gotta go. CIA tomorrow. Okay. So now we have a conversation. First thing I'm going to do is find the idioms and make them bold. So they stand out and we can see easily how they fit into the conversation. Okay, so the idiom, the theme for today was end of the day. Bread says, End of the day once. And Larry says it once, and we just quick take a look at my typing, see if there are any mistakes. Okay, so I'm going to say the conversation at regular speed. Here we go all along, Fred. At the end of the day, you're a lousy friend, and your breath stinks. Larry, is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago? Bread off course. You bluffed and stole the pot. That was going to change my life. Now all I have is a bicycle. Larry, At the end of the day, I think your bicycle is absolutely wonderful. Read. It was great talking to you. I got to go see it tomorrow. Okay, so let's break this conversation into parts and we're gonna talk about the vocabulary and phrases 6. Explore Vocabulary & Phrases: and we're gonna talk about the vocabulary and phrases. So we already talked about end of the day, You could say, uh, after thinking for a while Ah, at the ultimately in the in the end, the conclusion waas, right? You thought about something, and then you're going to share the information or make a decision. So at the end of the day, you're a lousy friend, and your breath stinks. Well, I think we need to look at a lousy friend. Mm. Well, I'm finding the pictures. Does anybody know what the word lousy means? But we're going to take a look at a lousy friend who we kind of have an idea from the conversation. Right in the context, Let's take a look at other ways to say, Ah, lousy friend. I think the pictures kind of explain for themselves, But here are other ways to say a lousy friend you could say an awful friend. All right. And if you guys have other ways in the comment right, you're free to type, okay? And ah, Bismol friend and atrocious. A friend. A terrible friend, An appalling friend. A second great friend who so many options. Uh, right OK, so these are other ways to say a lousy friend. All right? And before we talk about them, let's do a little pronunciation. And if you're repeating out after me, give me some apples. Right. Here we go. Hi. Let's see Sarah Moses. Maybe bad friends. That's not bad, right? Ah, poor friend. Or healed this to gaze is a poor friend, right? Wow, There are so many adjective to describe a friend who is no good. Right? So repeat after me. Ah, lousy friend. An awful friend in abysmal friend. An atrocious friend. A terrible friend. An appalling friend. A second rate friend. Okay, so I imagine there are some new words here. Or maybe words that you're not very familiar with. Like abysmal. But all of these have a very similar meaning to lousy. Lousy Just means it sucks is not good, right? Like in the comments. Bad. Poor right. If something or someone is lousy, low quality, right, we could say a low quality friend, right? So awful is very similar to abysmal. Abysmal is like even almost more awful than awful. Atrocious is like horrible, terrible, right? Appalling is like, Ah, you don't even want to get involved. It's just stay away. And second rate is think think about if you buy something second hand. It's already used is lost, lost some of its quality, so it's not as good quality as something that's new. So a second rate friend is someone who Onley gets two stars out of five, maybe one star or zero start. All right, let's see. I see Layla Almeida says, lousy friend. It seems to me not a friend, right? No, It's like if you were going to rate the friend 12345 stars and you give the friend to stars , they're a lousy friend. Maybe it's not good to keep them as a friend. All right, And see, down here we have the faces. We have smiley face, regular face and sad face or upset face. A lousy friend gets the bottom box check. You are not a good friend. And over here we have a guy who is just putting his head against the wall because he is, I don't know, stressed out that the friend is just not very good. Okay, So back to the conversation. So Fred started it at the end of the day. You're a lousy friend. Your an atrocious friend. You're a horrible friend. You're a poor friend. You're a bad friend. You suck. You're no good. Ah, you're a terrible friend. And and your breath stinks. I think we should learn about your breath stinks. Maybe kind of offensive to say to say to someone, but it's still good to learn English about learn English, both things that are not very nice. Right? Okay, so your breath stinks. And here it is, a sentence, right? It's a declarative sentence. We're sharing information, stinky information. Your breath stinks. Oh, look at all these pictures right here. Or other ways to say your breath stinks. Here we go. Your breath smells as in smells bad. Doesn't smell it. Roses. Your breath reeks. Who? That's a nice one. Your breath has a horrible order. Mm. Your breath has a terrible smell. Okay, lets see. Sarah. Most says yes. It's so useful. Wonderful. Okay. So I'm hopefully giving you lots of different ways to say one thing. So instead of just saying that one way, you can say it many ways. Okay, So before we talk about each one, let's do some pronunciation repeat after me, and you would probably say it. You wouldn't be like, Ah, your breath stinks. You would be like your breath stinks. Okay. Repeat after me. Your breath stinks. Yeah. Your breath smells. Your breath reeks. Your breath has a horrible order. Your breath has a terrible smell and ah, yield is too gay. Your breath is like a toilet. Yes. Yes, you could say that, right? Well, man, your breath is It's like a toilet, like a stinky toilet. Okay, so we're talking about breath, right? It's the air that comes out of your mouth, right? Your respiration. Okay. The air that comes out Imo and smells is pretty much the same as stinks. You could say, depending on the context, the situations you could say something smells good. But if someone just says your breath smells and they don't add anything else at the end, it's a very good guess that they're saying something smells bad, right? So they don't have to say they don't have to finish the sentence and say your breath smells horrible. They could just say your breath smells. People are gonna understand that. It doesn't mean it smells good. All right, see, Layla Almeida says sometimes it's a disease right here. She maybe is sick, right? Or maybe they've been smoking their whole life, and it just smells really bad. Okay, So reeks. Who reeks is another way to say smells and stinks. But if we put them on a level I would put smells here, I would put stinks over here and I would put reeks appear. I think reeks is kind of strong. If you say that someone reeks, you're probably gonna want to where? The gas mask and protect your nose. Right. Okay. I see your breath has a horrible order, and order is here. It's a noun. It's a thing. Another word for order is a smell and used as a noun as a thing. So you could see your breath has a horrible smell. Ah, your breath has a horrible order. But something is Woo. Not so good. All right, here we go. Smell down here, right? Your breath has a terrible smell. Okay, so let's take a look at the pictures. We have the lovely gas mask. We have Ah, girl who is breathing. And actually, it's good that we can't actually see the breath right. That would be kind of gross. But here we're getting the idea that her breath smells bad for breath reeks. This guy's like, I know my breath smells, but I don't care. Right? And then we have a nice pile of poop. Let's see, Sarah most said your breath killed me, right? Your breath knocked me out, right? Think of like a boxer. They're gonna do right, But instead, this guy he breathed on, he breathes on you, and you forgot to bring your gas mask. So it's like the breath is like, uh oh, It knocks you. Well, just smells really bad. Okay, so these are other ways to say your breath stinks back to the conversation. All right, so at the end of the day, you're a lousy friend, and your breath stinks. So Fred is insulting. Larry. He's saying mean things about Larry. Now, Larry is going to try to figure out why is Fred being so mean to me? All right, Larry, Is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago? Woo. Okay. Oakar game. Let's talk about poker game. All right, let's find my pictures. Here we are. Okay. So a poker game. I'm gonna give you a definition this time because I don't know that many other ways. To say poker game was kind of specific is very specific definition. So what it is, is it's a card game played by two or more people who bet on the value of the hands dealt to them. Okay, So before we talk about the definition, why don't we do pronunciation? Great. Repeat after me. Here we go. A card game played by two or more people who bet on the value of the hands dealt to them. Okay. And if you're doing pronunciation, give me some apples in the comment. All right. So a poker game. The pictures really help on this one. And I am poker's very, very popular game. So imagine you have seen it or have an idea what it is. There are different kinds of poker. We're not going to talk about all those today. But here's a picture. You're going to use cards, right? A deck of cards. We have the 10 of hearts. Jack of Hearts, Queen of Hearts, King of Hearts, Ace of hearts. So this would be an awesome hand. I think It's called a royal flush. Something like that, because they're all in order. And they're all of the same suit, the same kind. These their hearts, They also have diamonds and clubs and spades. Right. Okay, So these things on the table in front of this person are called chips, right? And hey, is betting so a bet? Another way to see a bet is a wager, right? Your bedding and their bedding on the value of the hands and the hands are not like your hand that you're touching. The hands are the group of cards that you get during the game. So if your hand was this hand, you probably want to bet a lot of money because you're probably going to win. All right, let's see. We have a question, and we have Ah, hello, Red brandy. Cherry says hello. So I will say hello. Welcome. Okay, lets see. You'll does to Gay says, Can you explain? Dealt to them, please. I can. Okay, So dealt to them. All right. Dealt is the past part participle off the verb to deal. All right. And if a dealer or the person deals the cards, it means they take one by one, and they give a card to you. They give a card to that person. They give a car to them. So they deal. They give the cards out one by one that's called dealing the cards, giving them out one by one. And so, if we're talking about the past part of participle value of the hands dealt right in the hands are not the hands like our hand on our body. The hand is the group of cards. The group of cards that the dealer gave you. The dealer is the person who is it's their turn. Or maybe the person that works at the casino and they give everybody the cards right, so they deal the cards So the person is called the dealer. Okay. All right. Hopefully I answered your question, right. So dealt to them just means given to them. So if you said dealt to them right there, another way to say that is given to them or that they received. So it's the cards. It's like this the hand, the different cards that you received that were dealt to you. Okay. So, um, as the game goes, people add more chips to the middle if they want to keep playing. If they don't want to keep playing, then they stop and they fold fold. It just means that they put their cards down and they don't want to play anymore. And you lose your money that you've already put in. All right, you'll these two gay says thank you. Wonderful. Okay. All right. Sarah Moses. Great. Great. With lots of apples. Wonderful. Okay, so this is poker, and Oh, same appear This guy has an ace of heart. Black heart, you know that. Oh, yeah. You don't usually see Blackhearts, so Okay, but ace of hearts, Any king of hearts who It's probably going to be a good hand. So he might bet a lot of money or the chips because the chips are worth worth money. Right? All right, let's see. Layla Tomato says, could you repeat first statement? Um, can you be more specific? Oh, you mean pronunciation. We can do that. We can do pronunciation again. Everybody repeat after me. The definition of poker game. Repeat out loud. A card game played by two or more people who bet on the value of the hands dealt to them Okay, so I try to pause so you guys can repeat it, and then we can move forward together. Okay? It once again dealt to them. The best way to sit in a different way, I think is given to them. Right. Okay, so this is a poker game Back to the conversation. Layla Almeida says, Thank you. You're welcome. All right. OK, so Larry, Larry says, Is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago? And when he says is this? He's talking about Fred's bad attitude because Fred is saying mean things about him, right? So is this is your bad attitude? Ah, vote me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago. Is it about me defeating you? You know me winning 40 years ago. Okay, so Fred says, of course, yes. You bluffed and stole the pot. That was going to change my life. Now all I have is a bicycle. Mm. Oh, let's see. Let me look at the comments. First yield is too gay hands. Meaning is one game for bet. In this definition, yes. The complete hand when we go back to the picture is in poker. You're gonna be able to have five cards, right? It might, depending on the kind of poker game. Sometimes you only get two cards and everybody shares the cards in the middle, right? And then you can pick the best five cards. Five cards to make your hand right. And that would be the end off the one game. Right? And then they repeat, repeat. So this is appeared similar to the card game poker game Texas Holdem, where everyone gets two cards face down. Face down means that you know, it's hidden you don't want anybody else to see. And then later the dealer, what's one by one? A car down. And then people can bet one card and bet, and you could make a combination using your cards and the cards on the table. And whoever has the best hand, a total of five cards wins. Okay. All right. Great question. Yield is too gay. All right, so here we are. Let's talk about you bluffed. Does anybody before I explain it. Does anybody have an idea what it would mean if I said you bluffed? And this by itself, could be a very short sentence, right? You bluffed I m So anybody have an idea? What does you bluffed mean? Well, we're going to explain it as you bluffed is very common in poker and cards, but it could also be used in real life. Right? So let's take a take a look here. Does anybody have an idea while I take a drink of my water? What does What does it mean? You bluffed? Okay, two years. Okay, so I don't see anybody answering, so I'm going to explain. What does it mean you bluffed? Uh huh. A new person. Iman Sala Sala says cheater is possible. Yes, is possible and depended on the game. It might be okay with the rules to bluff. Like if you played poker. Uh, people might call you a cheater, but you're not breaking the rules of the game. You're actually playing the game very well, so it depends on the situation. But you're right. Iman Saleh has the right idea. Teeter All right. Leyla Mehta says to pay. Not quite. And she's to bet it's similar. Is a part of bedding ceremonies says maybe a liar. Mm. Okay, So Iman Salo says cheater. That's very close. Very close ceremonies says maybe a liar. Who? That's very, very close. Okay, so here are other ways to say you bluffed. Okay? And in this conversation, we were talking a boat. The poker game. So Larry had said to Fred Ah, was it Fred? Yeah. Fred said to Larry, you bluffed and stole the pot. You bluffed. Okay, so here are other ways to say you bluffed. And these ways should help explain what it is you've left. You tricked me. Mm. Okay. So tricked, right? You tricked me. You deceived me. Uh, you pretended, uh, and just like someone said serum Oh, you lied, right? You could also say you were misleading and we'll explain that in a moment. And just like Iman, Saleh said, a similar one is you cheated and whether or not it's allowed in the game depends on the game. Uh, in poker, people bluff all the time, and it's part of the game. That's what makes the game kind of interesting. OK, so let's do pronunciation first. And then we'll talk about each one. So repeat after me and show me some apples if you're doing pronunciation. Here we go. You bluffed. You tricked me. You deceived me. You pretended you lied. You were misleading. You cheated. Okay, so these are similar ways to say you bluffed rights. Similar. Okay. So tricked. You tricked me, right? You made me think one thing. But actually, the truth was that it was something different. So when you bluff in poker is very common, cause they hide their cards right. They put them face down. I hear only maybe one person knows what the cards are, so they might pretend that the really good cards or maybe they pretend that they're bad cards. But the whole idea is they want to win a lot of money. And they don't want other people to know exactly what cards they have. But maybe they want to bluff and make other people think at their cards are much better than they actually are. So here we are, with cards again and poker chips. And this lady, she looks a little bit mysterious. She has four aces. Who that's a very, very good hand, right? Four aces. It's almost impossible. Very rare to get that right. So she's kind of hiding. He has a mischievous look on her face. And this guy, he's looking over his shoulder. I don't trust that guy. Right. So if someone bluffs a lot is difficult to trust them because you don't know what they're going to do. So you tricked me. It is very similar to you. Deceived me once again. You made me think something. But it turns out that it was not. It was something different. You pretended you pretended that you had two aces, but you only had a two and ah, nine. Not a very good hand. And you lied right now you lied is very kind of strong, right? When we think about people line, it's like it makes you feel kind of upset or angry. You bluffed. It's actually means you lied, right? You're not telling the truth. But when you say you bluffed, it's like it doesn't seem so serious. It seems more like a game like in poker. But you could bluff in life. Maybe, I guess. But when you say you lied, it sounds much stronger. All right, let's see. You'll this to Gay says hiding someone's hands during the game with lie okay? Or not sharing the information that you have. I see. You were misleading. Okay? Misleading means that you've made me think something different than the truth, right? You deceived me. You tricked me. All right. So I wanted you to think that I had a lot of money. So I wore a gold watch, expensive sunglasses, and I rented an expensive car. So I was misleading. I tricked you. I was bluffing. Actually, I'm poor, and I have no money. All right. I see a man. Saleh says it's like deception or different. It's the same. Very good. Deception is similar to the word deceive, Right? Your deception was bluffing. Me? You deceived me, right? Deception is very similar to you. Bluffed, right? You're not telling all of the truth, or you're telling just a little bit of the truth or you're not saying any part of the truth at all. All right? And last one, you cheated, you cheated. Sounds is pretty strong to its its strong. Like you lied. Because if you say to someone you cheated, you feel upset that they did something that was inappropriate. It was wrong. And they either took your money. Or maybe they hurt you in some way. Right? But in poker, you can't really say you cheated because it's part of the rules. They allow that in the game right now. If you're playing poker and you pull out a gun, you say, OK, everyone, give me all the money. Well, you could probably say you cheated, right? Because it's not part of the rules to use guns in poker. No. Right. So these air similar ways to say you bluffed? Not exactly the same. But similar idea is that you're not letting people know the truth. You're either hiding the truth or you're giving them just a small piece of the truth. Okay. All right. I see Leila Mehta says, make someone that you will do that you do really intend to do. I think what you're trying to say is you make someone think that you're going to do this, that you're going to do this. But actually, you do this, so it's not the same. But you make everybody think I'm going to do this. And then do you do this? So you bluffed, right? Okay. Back to the conversation. All right, Fred. Off course. You bluffed and stole the pot. That was going to change my life. Who lets talk about the pot because it doesn't mean apart. That's like for cooking chicken. No, that's different. And it doesn't mean marijuana either. Pot could be a word for illegal drugs, depending on where you live. But here the pot is something different. It's not used in the kitchen, and it's not an illegal drug. Does anybody have an idea? What is the part? If we're talking about poker, the pot, here we go. The part. All right, Pronunciations not so difficult. The pot. Okay, so the pot, I'm gonna give you a definition, and then maybe we can do pronunciation of that. The pot in poker is the total total money that players Specht during a single game. Okay, so it's the total money that they put in during one game. So maybe this is the pot and the person one. So they get everything, they get all of the chips, and each one of these is called a chip. So there's a lot of chips here, and all of the different colors mean different, different amounts of money that they're worth. Okay. And it's easier to use chips than to throw money all around on the table, cause the chips are neat and easy to use, right? So as they bet, they get their cards and they look at their cards and they have a chance to bet they can add money to the pot, and they usually put the pot in the middle. The pot is just all the chips that people are betting that they're putting in. And as the game is played, the pot will grow because if a lot of people think they can win, they'll probably put money into the pot, right, depending on what their strategy is. But they want to earn a lot of money. They want to get a lot of chips like down here. So ah, part is just the total money that players bet during a single game. All right, so let's do pronunciation. Repeat after me. The pot in poker is the total money that players bet during a single game. Okay, so the pot, another way to say the part. What it means is just the money. It's the money and they use the chips right to represent the money. Okay, So back in the conversation, read says, Of course you bluffed. You deceived me. You pretended you maybe He's upset, he says. You lied and stole the pot. So you stole that big pile because you bluffed, you won and you stole the money. I wanted to win. You bluffed and I lost and you stole the pot and the pot was going to change my life. Right now all I have is a bicycle. So maybe what the pot Fred was going to buy a car are something different. I don't know. All right, let's continue at the end of the day after thinking things over after making a decision, I think your bicycle is absolutely wonderful. OK, so Larry is trying to change the bad energy in this conversation. So let's talk about absolutely wonderful, absolutely wonderful. And let's see, if you guys can think of other ways to say absolutely wonderful, let me know in the comments and I will read your comments. Okay, so let's talk about absolutely wonderful. And I think you probably understand the meaning because the pictures are wonderful. Everyone's so excited. All right here or other ways to say, absolutely wonderful. Totally awesome. Uh, Layla Almeida says, Extraordinary. Who? Yes, then see completely. Marvelous. Yes, Utterly delightful. Unquestioned. Probably amazing. downright incredible. Okay? And Leila made also said, Great, right, great, extraordinary, wonderful, incredible. And here we're using adverb and adjective, right? And the adverb describes the adjective. It's the same down here. Adverbs, adjective, adverb, adjective. The whole idea is we're trying to explain or describe something that is awesome because we're putting together two really strong words that express Ah, lot of wonderful energy. Great energy you're not just saying is wonderful. You're saying is absolutely 100% wonderful. Okay, so here's our chance for pronunciation. Repeat out loud after me. Absolutely wonderful. Totally awesome. Completely marvelous. Utterly delightful. Unquestionably amazing. Downright incredible. All right, in the comments field is to be a says, no doubt. Amazing, Right? Right. So there's no you can't doubt it, right? You know that it is amazing. All right. So awesome. Similar to wonderful. Incredible. Totally. It's like absolutely 100% completely right, utterly very similar to totally completely 100% unquestionably inside inside. The word we have question so on is making it negative. So it's like there's no question, it's amazing. So let's say that word. Unquestionably, unquestionably amazing. Unquestionably, unquestionably wonderful, unquestionably delightful. And right here we could say down right, Incredible downright is a little bit different than the others, but it's just a way to describe that. It is. It's really incredible. And there's no doubt there's no thinking that it's not right. It is. It's downright incredible. Okay? And we have someone else in the comments I don't read. It's either Arabic or Farsi, but I will say Welcome and hello to you. Okay, so let's see thes air, other ways to say, Absolutely wonderful. Let's take a look at the pictures. This lady's she's just electrified, so, so excited. She's like, I'm so happy because life is absolutely wonderful. Life is completely marvelous. Looks like she's jumping on the beach. She's holding out her arms, and she stretched out with the big, big smile on her face. These people are at their wedding right or looks like the wedding, and there have been an absolutely great time. It's amazing. It's utterly delightful, all right, so they're really enjoying each other. They're laughing, they're smiling and they're having a wonderful time, all right, Leyla Almeida says, totally energetic, right? Ah, lot of great positive, wonderful energy. And this lady over here, she has Ah, scarf. I guess this thing is a scarf for, like, a really small blanket, and she's waving it in the air because life is absolutely wonderful. Life is unquestionably amazing. Life is completely marvelous, and her scarf matches her nice red pants and she's standing in the middle of the road. If she keeps standing in the road, life will no longer be absolutely wonderful. She'll be absolutely dead, so hopeful that she does what she's going to dio. And then she gets out of the road because life will take a wrong turn. Okay, all right, back to the conversation. These were other ways to say, Absolutely wonderful. Okay, here we are. This is the conversation. So Larry said at the end of the day, or, you know, I was thinking I made my decision. This is what I think. I think your bicycle is absolutely wonderful. I think your bicycle is utterly delightful. It's absolutely amazing. It's downright awesome, right? So I think Larry's trying to change the mood in the conversation because Fred was just being a jerk, right and insulting him, calling him a lousy friend. Your breath stinks. That's not something that good friends do so. I think Larry's just trying to change the bad energy to good energy. So he gives him a compliment. Isn't it interesting how sometimes when people are just mean right and instead of being mean back to them, you say something nice to them and they calmed down, right? That's what seemed to happen here. Okay, so Fred ends the conversation by saying, It was great talking to you. I got to go see it tomorrow, right? And just quick. Ghada is just means going to. But people always say Ghada, especially when it's informal between Fred and Larry. It's very informal conversation right now, and it's really common for people to say CIA instead of see you because, yeah, is this quicker and easier to say than you? You can try it to say, See, you or CIA? It's just real quick, right? See you. Okay, see you tomorrow. All right, let's see. There's a comma. Compliment says it's It's Ibrahim. Okay, so welcome, Ibrahim. Wonderful. Thank you so much for spending time with us and hanging out with Able Lingle. Layla Almeida says there are dances like this. Who? Let's see, I assume that you're talking a vote. These pictures probably like this one. Sure. I'm definitely not an expert on dance. This could be a dance. I just have a question. Why is she dancing in the middle of the road when a big truck comes and it won't be absolutely awesome anymore? Okay, Yeah, I suppose it could be a dance. It sounds right. Okay. All right. So let's see the conversation one more time, because in a moment it will be time for the quiz. But first, I'm going to repeat the conversation at regular speed. Here we go, Fred. At the end of the day, you're a lousy friend, and your breath stinks. Larry, is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago? Bread off course. You bluffed and stole the pot. That was going to change my life. Now all they have is a bicycle. All right, One cig. Okay, Larry, at the end of the day, I think your bicycle is absolutely wonderful. Fred, it was great talking to you. I got to go see it tomorrow. Okay, so that was a conversation between Fred and Larry, and Fred started off just being a jerk, right? and Larry. I guess he didn't want to have the bad energy, so he said something nice and then the conversation ended positively. 7. Quiz & Review: Are you guys ready? If you're ready for the quiz, let me know in the comments I put on my big glasses. Uh, so I can be like a strict teacher. Ah, do your quiz. Take your test. Are Okay, so here we go. Let's take the quiz and I will go through. And we will also talk about the wrong answers. But let's get started. Here we go. Question Number one. How many years ago did Larry beat Fred at poker? Here are your choices A 10 years ago, B 20 years ago. See, 30 years ago or D 40 years ago. Let's play the music, but it's know in the comments. What is your answer? - Okay , so let's see, how many years ago did Larry beat Fred at poker? I see the answers in the comments. Okay, here is the correct answer. 40 years ago, right? Ah, long time ago. So let's see. Let's talk about these answers and there's just one simple way to see what the correct answer is. We go back to the conversation and Larry after he answers Fred, who was being a jerk, he says, Is this about me beating you at that poker game 40 years ago. So a long time ago? Uh huh. Right and see? That's right. So 40 years ago, and Fred hasn't for gotten you still pissed off that all he has is a bicycle. Okay, so the answer is De 40 years ago, right? Question number two. All right. To bluff. Better at poker. It may help to a wear a dark suit. Be where sunglasses. See, we're running shoes or D Where? A smile. All right, here's your music. Let me know in the comments. What is your answer? - Okay . All right. So, to bluff, better at poker, Remember? We talked about the word bluff, right? To trick someone better or to kind of lie to someone better or to pretend better. So the options are aware of dark suit wear some glasses, were running shoes, wear a big smile. The answer is B where sunglasses. Okay, so let's go back and talk about where it says bluff. We talked a boat. You bluffed the other ways were say you tricked me. You deceived me, right? But if you're playing poker, all right? And this is kind of like in life too, right? Criminals or shady people, people who cause problems. They're known to wear sunglasses, right, Because they don't want people to see their eyes. Right? Because if you see my eyes, you have an idea a better idea if I'm lying to you or if I'm telling you the truth or if I'm, you know, giving you some of the truth, right? So people they like to hide their eyes. Because if we move our eyes around and sometimes we move them in a way that makes other people think that we're lying. So if you want to be better at poker and if you ever watch, like the World Series of Poker or on TV, there's quite a few people that wear sunglasses because they don't want people to look at their eyes. They don't want people to know what they're thinking. All right, so that was answered to number two. Question number three. If I say your shoes reek, I'm saying that a your shoes smell terrible. Be your shoes are the coolest. See, your shoes are for geeks, De your shoes smell great. Okay. Let me know what you think, but okay. Okay. All right. So if I say your shoes reek. I I'm saying that I'm supposed to put I'm Let's fix the question. Sorry about that. If I say your shoes, Rick, I'm saying that, right. Your shoes smell terrible. All right. So before we talked about the word wreak Well, it was one of the ways when we talked a boat. Where is it? Where is it? Huh? Your breath stinks. They're one of the ways to say stinks is reeks. Your breath reeks. So if I say your shoes wreak Ah, I need my gas mask. They smell horrible. Alright. Reeks means stinks. Horrible order smells bad. All right, so the answer. Well, the answer is, if I say your shoes reek, I'm saying that your shoes smell terrible. Okay, so I see a question about last question. Let's see, here ago, you'll this to Gay said, Can someone hide bad feelings with the big smile? Sure as possible. Right. Um, let's see. And that's why I was stuck between two options. So imagine you were stuck between a big smile and sunglasses. Uh, well, let's see if your plane poker and you sit around the table the whole time 100% of the time , like this. People will probably think you're crazy. So maybe that can help your game on make you a better poker player. But, uh, I think I'm quite sure sunglasses will probably be easier than just all right. I don't know. Right. But who so you could use a smile? May be in for one or two situations that might work fine. But in this one toe, wear sunglasses would probably the best answer. Okay, so let's go to question number four. If something is utterly delightful, it is a extraordinarily painful be absolutely awful. See, Incredibly awesome. De. Totally unbelievable. Here's your music. Okay. All right. I like the music, but I can only wait for so long. All right, Who expect we have letter C letter C letter, See in the comments. All right, So if something is utterly delightful, it is. See? Incredibly awesome, right? It's great. It's wonderful. Is the best. The other ones, they all use absolutely extraordinarily. Totally 100%. Really? Really. Really. Oh, bad. Oh, bad. Oh, not so good, Right? This is the only one that starts out, like, really? And then it ends good as well. And so before, when we talked to boat. Absolutely wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. Totally awesome. Completely marvelous. Utterly delightful. Unquestionably amazing and downright incredible. All right. Okay. Let's see, in the comments, we have someone ***, and he says, Hello, able lingo. I say hello and welcome. Okay, so let's see. All right, I'm going to Oh, I think I forgot to explain the wrong answers on this one. So on question number two, the answer was where? Sunglasses. If you want to be better at poker wearing a dark, dark clothing, maybe you don't make you look like a ninja, But it probably won't help. You're playing better. We're running shoes. Well, most people put their feet under the table in poker. So maybe if you piss someone off and you want to run away really fast, they could help you, But no, B is still the best answer. Okay. All right. Let's see on number three the wrong answers. The right answer is your shoes smell terrible. Your shoes are the coolest. If I see your shoes reek, they're not the coolest. They're probably the opposite of the coolest. Your shoes are for geeks. Well, geeks or just another way to say nerds. You know people that were you can. They were calculators in their pockets and still fighting. But geeks usually end up being very successful. But the answer doesn't work. And your shoes smell great is the opposite. It's not what we're looking for. Okay. All right. So let's go to question number five. Here we go. Question number five Larry stole. That was going to change Fred's life. All right, We need you to fill in the blank and make the sentence complete your your options. A The lot be the pot. See the cart d the baht. Okay, here we go. Let's listen to music, you know. Okay, the music so dramatic. We were taking a quiz, like in a movie. I I couldn't do it. Yes, it's dramatic. OK, so Larry stole That was going to change Fred's life. Okay, the answer is three. The pot, right? And we just used other words that rhyme with part light, Part Kat part OK, but they're all wrong. Black is like a robot, right? Maybe a box that works with an app or something on the computer on your phone. Ah, Kat is another name for like, a bed, especially for like maybe in the military. They have a cot, the bed which folds up very quickly. It is easy to move around. That's a cart. And the lot you say the lot. It could be like the parking lot. Or if you say the locked, it could be everything. I want to take the lot. I want to take everything. So the answer is the pot. And we talked about the pot with pictures in doing right. So the part in poker is the total money that players bet during a single game. Right? So that's the pot. And it fits our question perfectly. Right? Larry stole the pot. That was going to change Fred's life. And if we look in the conversation, read says it right here. Of course. You bluffed and stole the pot That was going to change My life. Must have been a very important pot. Okay. All right. So that was the answer. And let's take a look. Alright, so we finish the quiz. Yeah. More dramatic music. Right? Okay. All right. So we just finished the quiz and let's see. Let's answer another question. What did we accomplish today? So we'll do yes or no questions. Did we talk about an idiom whole? Yes, we did. Did we describe in summarize a picture? Yes, we did. Did we use a picture and an idiom to create a conversation? Well, yeah. You use pictures to help explain. Well, Cavalleri and phrases in the conversation. Yes, sir, We did. And did we test you with the quiz? Oh, yeah, we did. We did a lot of stuff today. All right, Maybe we'll do a quick review What we did today. We did the idiom. End of the day. We talked about reject your proposal, Teddy bear. We talked about a picture. We summarize the picture. We created a conversation using the picture and Fred and Larry. We talked about a lousy friend we talked about. Your breath stinks. We talked about poker game. You bluffed the pot. And absolutely wonderful. I think this lesson was absolutely wonderful. Okay? And we took a quiz, right? We did a lot in this lesson, and OK, I think we're just about finished.
