First, we discuss 10 words & phrases. Then I give 3 important tips. (I also discuss how to hear the difference between "can" and "can't," which is a question students often ask me) The three biggest tips I share in this video are... 1. The way words sound changes based on their environment 2. Your ears won't deceive you 99% of the time 3. Repeat what you hear right after you hear it Remember, fast speech isn't really about speaking "quickly"... but it may sound very quick to you since you are a non-native English speaker. Fast speech simply refers to the way native English speakers change and eliminate sounds as they speak normal, everyday English. If you are trying to sound more like a native speaker with an American English accent, I give lots of examples in this video to make you aware of what to listen for. Finally, learning pronunciation by reading how words are spelled is VERY confusing because English is not a phonetic language. So, the best way to learn pronunciation is to listen carefully and imitate what you hear. Here is the list of phrases I discuss in the video: - What are you doing later? - Especially - Excuse me - Fundamental - Probably - Comfortable - Can vs. can't - Let me know - Do you want water or tea or anything? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• HANG OUT WITH ME HERE 🙋🏼‍♀️ → Website: https://www.englishfulltime.com/ → Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stefanietheenglishcoach/ → Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theenglishcoach/ → Blog: https://www.englishfulltime.com/blog/ → Business Inquiries: stefanie@englishfulltime.com ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS 🤗 The Book That Changed My Life: http://amzn.to/2GjHgGx Best Headphones Ever (super expensive, but 100% worth it!): http://amzn.to/2GjIMZa Awesome Travel-Sized Mic: http://amzn.to/2FCZ4eN My Favorite Backpacking Pack (super durable, I love it!): http://amzn.to/2FOasrs Every Woman Needs This: http://amzn.to/2FtaeXn If you travel with electronics, you need this: http://amzn.to/2Fw0Geh Luggage Organizers (so simple, yet so useful!): http://amzn.to/2Fw4oEJ Best Webcam (still PERFECT after 5+ years!): http://amzn.to/2HsF5Qv Improve Your Writing & Master Punctuation (not for beginners): http://amzn.to/2tBUn3i Learn The Secrets Of Good Writing (not for beginners): http://amzn.to/2Fwp4MR (NOTE: These are affiliate links) ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ's) 🌎 Where are you from? -California 🗣 Do you speak another language? -Yes, I learned Spanish and speak fluently. ✈️ What countries have you traveled to? -Mexico, Argentina, Ireland, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy 🇦🇷 Have you ever lived abroad? -Yes, I have lived in Argentina since January 2013 🤷🏼‍♀️ You speak too fast.

Improve your Vocabulary: Stop saying VERY!

Using the same word again and again is boring, which is why native English speakers use a wide variety of vocabulary to express their thoughts and feelings. In this vocabulary lesson, I will teach you how to express yourself more effectively by replacing the word "very" with more precise and interesting adjectives. For example, you can replace "very cold" with "freezing". This illustrates your point more precisely. You will sound more natural and intelligent. Using these adjectives on the speaking section of IELTS and TOEFL exams will impress your examiner and improve your score. Watch the video to discover many more examples of this kind of vocabulary substitution. Variety is the spice of life! Next, watch my lesson on how to learn vocabulary FAST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_aA-Hc74Ag TRANSCRIPT "Getting from here to there, it's been a long while." Oh, hi. My time is finally here. James from engVid. I can't believe this, this is like the Mirror Universe. If you watch Star Trek, you'll understand; if not, go watch Mirror Universe with Star Trek. I have two, look at them, I have two Mr. Es. In the first one Mr. E is hot, and the first one Mr. E is cold. Let's go to the board. E, what's up? "It's very hot. 35 degrees centigrade." You're right. I see you're wearing your Bermuda shorts. And the second E is saying he's very cold: "It's minus 30 degrees centigrade." Ow, this isn't good. I feel for you. But don't you think there are better ways to say it's very hot or it's very cold? I think so, and in today's lesson I'm going to teach some of you... Not some of you. I'm going to teach all of you how to get rid of the word "very" to describe everything, and use other words which give more information, which will make you sound more like a native speaker and make your writing phenomenal. Oh, "phenomenal"? That's a word for "very good". Are you ready? Let's go to the board. So, today's lesson is on "very". "Very" is a very good word, that's why we use it, but when you're writing, to hear somebody say: "Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very" is what we call monotonous, it means "mono" as one, "tonous", one tone, one sound - very boring. So let's change that from you being... You know, using "very" because I teach and I notice a lot of students saying things, like: "Teacher, today it's very cold outside." I'm like: -"Yeah, it is." -"And I'm very tired and very hungry." I'm like: "Okay, okay." It's like being punched in the face again and again, and I just want to say: "Stop with the 'very'. Use a different word." But it's not fair because "very" is a very good word-there, I did it again-we just need to find other words to make your language sound richer to improve it so you sound more like a native English speaker, and to make it more interesting for you because it will express more of who you are and your ideas in a better way. It makes you unique. You ready? Let's go to the board. You'll notice I put "very" in red because this is something we don't want to do, we don't want to keep saying: "very". We want to change that up. And I'm going to give you a list of words that people or students usually say when they say "very" that I've heard many, many times. And maybe you've done this. And today I'm going to give you singular words to use instead. I'll explain them, just in case they're difficult. Let's start with the first one. People say: "Very rude", instead of saying that, you can say: "vulgar". "Vulgar" means very rude, and if somebody says to me: "Your language is vulgar", I'll probably stop talking because it means it's not right, it's inappropriate, it's very bad. Vulgar. "I don't like your vulgar tone", your rude tone. It's strong. "Very short", another word we say is "brief", which means small. We had a very brief... We had a very brief conversation, a very short conversation. Cool? "Boring". When you say: "Class was very boring today", you can say: "dull". "Dull" means very boring. It also means... See? Here's a bonus when you use these words, stupid. If you say someone is dull, you can say they're very boring, or dull meaning they're stupid. Don't use it like that too often; people don't like being called stupid. And if you say: "He's rather dull, isn't he?" I have to listen for context to mean stupid or boring. Next one, everybody's favourite: "Very good". "Teacher, the food is very good. The lesson is very good. I like this, it's very good." Why don't we change that to the word "superb"? Look carefully at the word "superb", you have the word "super" written inside it. "Super" means what? Above average, excellent, or superb, very good. "The food was superb." People don't usually use this word, so if you tell me when I cook for you that it's superb, I'm telling you right now I will take that as such an amazing compliment. Gentlemen, if you tell a woman she looks superb, she'll be like: "Thank you. Really?" Because no one says it. All right? […]

ABOUT THIS VIDEO
In this video, I talk about fast speech and how to sound more like a native English speaker.

Remember, fast speech isn't really about speaking "quickly"... but it may sound very quick to you since you are a non-native English speaker.

Fast speech simply refers to the way native English speakers change and eliminate sounds as they speak normal, everyday English.

If you are trying to sound more like a native speaker with an American English accent, I give lots of examples in this video to make you aware of what to listen for.

Finally, learning pronunciation by reading how words are spelled is VERY confusing because English is not a phonetic language. So, the best way to learn pronunciation is to listen carefully and imitate what you hear.

NOTE: Fast speech and connected speech are the same thing

Also, here is the list of phrases I discuss in the video:

-What are you doing later?
-Where is he at?
-Did you give it to him?
-How did it go?
-What do you mean?
-Can I go?
-How is it going?
-Would you give it to me.
-I have to go to the store
-Where did you get them?
-I don't know how to do it.
