"And Lindsey McMahon the English adventurer, coming to you from Denver and Portland U. S. A.. Second episode in our series on civil rights in the US will look at police brutality. How why it happens and what we might do to stop. Hey Jessica. We are back here in this second episode. Special series that we're doing of episodes, guys on civil rights in the United States because there's been a lot of unresolved of protests in the streets, and we wonder listeners to really be clued in into what's going on our? Take our perspective on what's happening as we're watching it in our streets literally right? Yeah, exactly. Anytime, you just see a news article and all you see is pictures of fires and stuff and I don't know. Maybe you think it's happening everywhere, or maybe you think it's blown out of proportion I. Don't know but guys. We're here to give you like. Our first hand takes on what's happening around us right now. Exactly and just a few weeks ago, we gave you guys are rundown of the twelve most important events throughout history that kind of brought us to this big moment in history right now and today, though we're going to take another angle at this issue, and that is today we're GonNa talk about police brutality, and essentially the systems that are really keeping the police force. Not, being accountable, keeping them away from accountability for their actions Okay Yeah. And we the reason why we're doing the series. Guys is because we have had so many insightful questions from you from listeners. And there was a question about this as well and the student said. Let's see okay, this is this is a great question and. Okay, so in general he says. Is Racism really so ingrained in the US, or is it that most racists trion joined the police in order to hold sway? That's a great great phrase, a over common citizens and give vent to their abject instincts, and then he says couple that with the absurd militarization of police departments, and these dramatic occurrences are not difficult to. To explain so game and very insightful. You have very insightful from our listener. Thank you to our listener. Who contributed that question? Such a good question I mean. Where do you WanNa start with this episode today, Jessica, what should we talk about I? Well, let's let's directly address what he's asking about because it is such an interesting observation, right? He's wondering right like. Is Racism so ingrained in the US and we did touch on this last time in the time line mode, guys. Yes, yes, it is yeah. Remember I hope you guys listened to that bonus, but we talked about institutional racism where it's a part of institutions like the police department as well as systemic racism where it's actually built into. Our laws and now and how we address people of Color. Yes, so yes, it is ingrained, so that's the first answer now. What do you think about this next question? What do you think racist like just would try to join the police, so they could have that power. Yeah I've been talking about this lately with some friends and we've been reflecting on this. You know it's really hard to say. Obviously, everyone's different. It's hard to broad-brush. Generalization here, but. I do think that they're you know. Maybe certain personalities are driven to join the police force I. It may not be racism right because it's a very complicated thing racism, but maybe it's. A wanting to have power over people that could manifest as racism and violence against minority communities, or it could be a sense of like fear, and maybe they don't have something stable going on at home..

"So I'm going to read not skis question here. And let's get into it, Michelle. All right. You're ready, right? Okay. So he says about a years passed since one of my colleagues recommended me all ears English, and I've listened to this awesome podcast on my way to work as well as at home. It helps me a lot to improve my listening skills and expand my vocabulary. Thank you very much. All right. Not ski, thanks for listening. Thanks for listening. Here's the question I have a question about the phrase catch twenty two when I talked about my worries at the workplace with my Merican friends. She said it's kind of a catch, twenty two isn't it according to a dictionary, catch twenty two means a dilemma or contradictory? Situation. Do you often use this phrase, I would like to know about other expressions for contradictory situation, and I deeply appreciate your help, not ski from Japan awesome. Okay. I love this one. This one got me all excited because it's a really good phrase when there's so much to it. Well, this is what it's all about right for our listeners. It's not about the boring words that we find in the dictionary. It's about the it's about the exciting, obviously not ski found this in the dictionary. It is in the dictionary. What I'm trying to say is, it's not about the words we learned in school. It's about next level phrases that we can use to really articulate a feeling like this today. Yeah. And this directly shows you how much American culture is in the language. Right. I it just so interesting. Like how culture and language are so tied into gather huge leak. Yeah. So let's get into it. Then let's attack this here. Michelle, what do you think we're attacking? Okay. So we have a couple of definitions, because it can be a little bit hard to explain what we're going to get into it. So the first Steph initiative is a situation. This is from the online, Cambridge dictionary believe. A situation where there are only two possibilities and you cannot do either because each depends on having done the first. Yes perfect. And the other one when I just put it into Google, what is that? One Lindsay Google said Google said, a dilemma or difficult circumstances from which there is no escape, because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions, and that basically saying the same thing that the first definition said, right? You cannot do either because each depends on having done the other first so. But that's the key to this concept and we're gonna give some examples here, but it's one situation where yeah, it, it, it, it puts you in a type place because you can't do either thing because you need one or the other. I so. Yeah. I always wonder when it put into Google is up just a Google dictionary. I never know. Sure. Good question. I don't know. But Google knows every does everything, right? Okay. Well, anyway, okay? So Linda, do you have any examples of this? I'll my gosh. Well, I have a friend of mine who's running a restaurant, building a restaurant. And he and I we have beers like every week and we talk about our, our businesses about our work in our dreams in business that were things that were trying to put out in the world, right? For example, for me, it's all it for us here. It's all ears, English right, Michelle and for my friend, he's building a restaurant. But, you know, when we first started all ears English over the last five years or so, I feel like we've been in a catch twenty two pretty much the whole time. Because the idea is, you know, when you're a new business new podcast, you don't have enough resources to go big to get big fast. But you can't get big without having those resources. So like you're stuck. Right. You're stuck in the middle you need the resources but she to get big, but you have to be big to get the resources. So you own. Okay. So if that articulates that catch right there. So eventually, you have to find a way out of that. And I think now we're starting to find our way out of that moving into the next stage of life for all ears English. And my friend GI too. It's the same way he needs to hire better staff, so that he can bring in more revenue for his restaurant, but he doesn't have the money to hire the better staff. So because he doesn't have the staff. Right. So he's stuck in that place to. Right. Right. And you know what are you doing that situation because it's like do you just try and take out loans? Do you try you know because you can you can? In either start small and or you can take out loans and tryin, you know, really pushed it to the next level, like, what do you think Lindsay as a business owner? I mean, I think you need to find a unique angle on your topic. And I think it all English. We've done that we've found a unique way of speaking to our listeners here unique way of teaching English. But some people other people the way they deal with that, as they get venture capital. Right. Maybe they get alone. But you have to do something right? You have to be very resourceful to find those resources so that you can then get out of that, catch twenty two but yeah, I think every business faces this catch twenty two

"No. I mean, this is an important Guiseley, you know, expressing yourself in the English isn't always about happy things. Right. So I think this is such a good question because you know, it's truth like this is life. So how what can you say? When you just can't forget something somebody, did, you know? And you can't let it go. Right. Yeah. So one thing you could say for is. You can't let it go. I mean, there's no I put this in here. Even though we've set it at one hundred times because we've been saying it, and it's just perfect. Like, if you if you are just can't forget something it's going like bouncing around Lindsey, you said like rumbling around right wrong. It's such a great way to say this. So this is actually I think our listener actually said can't let it go. But I wanted to bring this up because I think it's a great one. So for example, because I know you're sorry. But I can't let it go that easily right Lindsay. Yeah. It's also very kind of idiomatic kind of natural. It's it's not boring. All it's good. And if you're speaking to a native speaker, they're going to understand exactly what you mean. Okay. Right. So that one kind of just rolls off my tongue. So I had to give a shout out to that one. Because I like, okay. I like it. I like it. And then maybe the next one for example is to resent. So this one's a little more formal little little different. It's a little bit different. And may not be like. Bouncing around in you. But it's like you have a bad feeling because of something. So in that sense. It's like it sticks with you. Right. Yes. Toxic. Wow. So here's an example. She's a nice woman. But I honestly resent her because of that time she yelled at me in front of my coworker is it was so embarrassing. Ooh. Okay. I don't know. I feel like when we hold onto things it hurts us more than it hurts the other person. Yeah. I was gonna add that definitely. I mean, I've definitely been in situations where you know, something goes wrong with a friend for a little while. And you know, you build up it. It's it's painful on it's stressful to carry that around with you. And so, you know, when I ended the situation and like made up with the person, then it's like, oh, it's just like a load off your shoulders, right? Yeah. For sure for sure. And sometimes it's like coming to an agreement with yourself. It's more about your own by yourself work. Then saying this person did this to me. But it is. Okay. And I I am a strong person. And is okay. Okay. And I can move on you know. So right, right. Right. Another one Michelle is there. Another thing. We can say another thing you could say is you could use the word bidder. Yes. The other day. We did bitter. Sweet today. We're doing bit her. Oh, yeah. That's true. That's true. But this is totally different. Right. Exactly. So yeah. So this is just to have this like feeling like all the time of like anger or hurt or just being upset with someone. Right lindsay. Yeah. And I know there is in like, for example, in Spanish, I know there's a direct translation for this. And yeah, for sure it's it's a lingering feeling of animosity negative feeling hurt or feeling angry. He's kind of a low lying home of anger. Right. Right. Right. So you could say like, I'm still bitter because he never paid me the rent. He borrowed for me. Right. Yeah. For sure for sure that would be bad. Yeah. Really money money is probably the number one thing that leads to bitterness that's NIA, very likely, very likely Lindley. So. Yeah, I mean, Michelle do you have any other thoughts to add about just kind of like Leno? Whoa. I just wanted to you know, what we were saying before I think that carrying around anger and hurt distressful and not worth it. And you may like the thing is when you carry those feelings, the other person can't feel it. Right. So if you're upset with someone and your carrying it around with you every day, and you're thinking about it a lot. It's like the other person doesn't know you're thinking about it that much. So you're not hurting them. You're only hurting yourself. Exactly. So it's kind of forgiveness that we're talking about here. Right. It's kind of it's an inside job as they say, it's an ins. It's inside work. It's like inner work right about that person. It's not it's not about finding that person and saying, I forgive you. It's okay. No. It's about working with yourself and going inward. Right. Right. Right. And you know, again, just, you know, expressing ourselves though, it kind of maybe, you know, talking about an using some of these words can actually help heal. If you say it, you know, then you commit, okay? This is what's happening. I'm. Identifying that there's this problem. I'm saying, oh, I can't let it go where I resent. And when you start to hear yourself saying those words, you might be like, wait a

"Okay. Lindsey. Could you read our listeners question for us? Absolutely. Here's the question. Dear Lindsey, Michelle. And Jessica my name is your Laney osservato from Costa Rica? I've been listening to you every day since one year ago. I I would like to know how to use out, for example, the word send out so she wants to know how to use that word. Great question. You're laney. Yeah. And you know, it's it's interesting 'cause the word out is used all the time and like in. So many different freezes Frizzell Arabs, just I mean, it's it's amazing. How dynamic this word is. I mean, so it's us all the time. So I mean, so what does it mean? I mean, it's the opposite of in right? But it's Houston so many more ways than that. Right. So I mean, basically means a way for from something like when I looked it up. I remember I mean, it's funny to look up the word out because it's not in the like, but I actually looked it up. And I think I remember seeing like oh like away from the center or something like that. And so I was thinking of it more as meaning like a way so away from the inside or away from something else. And you'll see why you know, bring this up in the second. But so what is send out Lindsey, well, send out so for example to send something away literally or metaphorically? Okay. So here's a sample sentence. I need to send out my thank you notes. That means that you need to send them away. I mean, you need to get them to the people out away from you and out to them right send now. Right. Right. Right. Right. Or you might say like I'm sending out like like positive thoughts. Are I'm spent sending out like good vibes or something like that. And that would be more like, you know, not not literally that you're sending them. But you know, more of an idea. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Yeah. So this word out is huge. And you know, I could we could do eight hundred. Episodes. We could do. All podcast the whole the whole series is about the word out. There's just so many. So, but I chose a few of them today that I thought would be good so Lindsey. What's what's the first one? All right. So the first one is out, right? So stand out is to be noticeable or to be different. Right. So this is this way this idea of thinking about the word out as not necessarily physically just being like like out or in. But being like a way away from the norm. Right. Yes. So here's a sample sentence. She has blue hair. So she really stands out in the crowd. Yeah. So stan. So that's another one we say sometimes you say like standout in the crowd. Right. Amongst you know, in see if people you know, that this is noticeable or different right? Exactly. It's a stand out. And you know, we could go more into this word, but a lot of times, at least in our culture. It's it's actually a good thing to stand out when you're an adult when kid. It's kind of like scary because maybe your awkward, you don't wanna stand out. But when you're an adult or even in the in your job and your career. It's good to stand out. It's

You know, something about having a baby that's been interesting is trying to create some sort of schedule and have some sort of routine. But it is tough. I can imagine. I can imagine. Oh my gosh. It's a whole new world for you. Now. Everything is changed. Exactly. Unlike the thing is like I'm not like really that into like developing routine developing schedules, but they say that like kids really respond to that. And it's helpful. Yeah. Actually, I was reading about that this morning that kids in general at all ages respond to that kind of structure and tradition. You're talking about traditions if go that they really respond to like family tradition than gives them kind of structure, they need right. Right. Right. Exactly. Yeah. So I'm trying to do that. But I don't know. I'm not so good at that. Are are you like a creature of habit? Or do routines. Make you feel like box. Stan how do you feel about that? It's so funny. Like I like a little bit of both. I do have my habits like I like to go and get a coffee at the same time most days, honestly, if feels like a more like a fun ritual to me rather than a boxed Boxton habit. But then I also like spontaneity like to go and randomly travel somewhere and rightly blow up everything make everything different change your whole routine. You know what I mean? And then come back in that case when I'm at home, I do like routines when I'm traveling. I liked mountaineering. Interesting. Interesting. That's good. Yeah. We'll today's episode is about like predictability like a can be with a set routine or something that happens. So many times it's expected. Yeah. That's good. I like that. I like that. So it's going to be a fun one today, I'm excited. But before that we wanted to remind our listeners of something. Yeah. Guys, if you are needing to get a seven eight or even a nine this year on I'll aisles if you want to emigrate somewhere, maybe you're going to study abroad. You need to take the exam and the place you want to start is with our podcast because once you go to our podcast, you don't need to go anywhere else. Right. We have all the tools for you. We'll show you how to get into the system and how to get the knowledge that you need so go over to the isles energy podcast and start right there hit subscribe. We are on their Mondays. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Okay. Very cool. Yeah. So about routine and predictability, I think this can be really helpful for some people. But like I said for other people it's frustrating like it just kinda depends on who. You are. Right. Yeah. I think definitely it depends on who you are. And what you need in life. Yeah. So you know, like I said so today, we're gonna talk about some ways to discuss something being predictable or something that happens very frequently. So they can be used in both positive and negative contexts. So and this is kind of natural one talking about predictability, depending on the situation. You'll see more what I mean. Once we get into the phrases. Yeah. For sure for sure. And this is the good. You know, this is the topic beyond small talk again going deeper than small talk. If you're talking about your daily lives, maybe you're complaining that maybe our partners to into routine and you're not right. Interesting way. You might use this, right? Right. Right. I sure I Shahr. So let's get into the phrases Lindsey. What's the first one? Okay. I one is over and over again or just over and over. So for example, I lost weight by going to the gym over and over and eating healthy foods, right? Right. Right. Right. Or if you're going to say in a negative way. I can't believe you because this happens over and over and now it's too late or over and over again. Right. You can add again if you'd like, yeah. That emphasizes the routine the fact that it's just a monotonous thing happening every time, right? Do you saying this Lindsey over and over and over and over again? Yeah. For sure I've said it before. Yeah. Like, I mean, they say when it comes to. Diet like you you do need variety. But they also say that like if you if you limit the scope of your diet, it can help you to maintain your weight because you're not eating too many, different foods. So like eating the same foods over and over again. You can cut calories. Yeah. Yeah. But that's still kind of boring. So. What's the next one Lindsay? Okay. One hundred times. What would be an example of that? So you could say like I just onto my resume out a hundred times and eventually got a job. I really like. Yeah. So you're kind of exaggerating. Right. It's not exactly a hundred right? Should do an episode on exaggeration in American.

"They're so easy to remember. And I would make up my own like before tests. I don't know if these are technically considered demonic devices, I guess so. Yeah. Like make little songs to remember. Remember things song. Like that would really help me. Even with my husband when he's been studying for tests. I always can make up a song do us a lot of. Yes devices Lindley. Yeah. I used to. I mean, these days don't do a lot of like memorizing fat. Right. Because you know, but let's see. Was learning Spanish, I think I not so much. But yeah, when I was a kid in school for sure I did a lot of this. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And again, these aren't necessarily things that you're going to say in conversation in your head. Yeah. Exactly. You know, another one in English. This one doesn't always work. But is the whole I before e except after c yeah. Oh, yeah. I before that's a great one for our listeners here today before e so any words when you feel that there's an eye in a knee. And you don't know what goes I that can be confusing. What's an example of that would be like either, my suppose that one's pretty easy. Wait. No. Follow the no the thing is like people have kind of decided this rule is not so great. But like, I don't know like. They're right T H I E R yesterday. I, but then like with other words, just doesn't work. So, you know, I it it's kind of a funny one because everybody knows this one. But it doesn't always work. It's you know, it's kind of a lot of it's kind of John. Yeah. So throw that one out. Yeah. But it's a good one to know. And everybody knows that one that everyone knows it. Yeah. So, but yeah, you might wanna use these different devices to help you practice English. And so I was saying I read this article recently about how drawing a picture is the best way to remember something. So this is where this applies for you guys for when you're learning English drawing. A picture interesting. What where was this article published? What are we talking about here? This was by Britney Wong on Huffington Post dot com. This is Jan January ninth two thousand nineteen and the article is called a scientifically proven trick to remember pretty much anything. So we will link to that article guys. And this is really interesting talks about a study that shows that drawing a picture is the best way to remember. You know, if you're if you're learning something new, so for example, there was a doctoral candidate involved in the study her name is Melissa Mead. And she gave the example of that you could draw pictures to remember like something like groceries that you need to get. So, you know, maybe if you draw a picture of a you'll you'll remember it better. I never would have thought to do something like this Lindsey have you ever done it? Yeah. Like, I lace recently kind of I think, but that's because I thought I was like visual person. I mean, this is assuming anyone whether they're visual or verbal or kinesthetic oriented should draw pictures, right? This is not about learning styles. This is just about a memory trick. Yeah. Right. Yeah. I don't think it's about I don't really know anything about learning styles. But we can. Yeah. No. I agree with that. Like this week. I was trying to learn so boring. So boring everyone else, but it's like a way to to to it's in our software system to create tags, and it's a complex system that I'm trying to learn and I had to write it out in terms of drawing. I had to draw it out the boxes and the arrows, right? Yeah. That's right in my know, what you're talking about. Yeah. I don't know. Maybe that does have something to do it. I'd have to read the article again. But I think it was mostly just you know, you can away to remember something. I never I never tried this like for just information I need to remember. It's very different from the way that I've tried learning things. But I mean, I think that this could help our listeners also in the English learning. Don't you Lindsey will? Yeah. For sure I mean, even just like seeing something on a piece of paper, like even if it's not a drawing necessarily. I I remember when I was learning Japanese I would in Japan, I found those the keychain thing that had the little cards that you could put on your keychain could write vocab the tiny little ones that you could ride vocabulary words, and I remember writing like the con- the hero gone are the cut tacona on those cards, and then the English on the bag or the Japanese on the back, and then I could practice just by looking at on the train and that visual learning constantly was so helpful right? Right visual learning is helpful. Yeah. Yeah. I I mean, I imagine you could draw a picture of items next to a list of vocabulary words right live rather than using translation, I think. We talk about how translation isn't always like a really good thing. Right. So if you have a picture of it. Instead, you're identifying the word as the actual object rather than translating at first, and then it becoming the object. Yeah. I agree with that, Michelle. I think that's a good idea actually for our listeners to try that try that this month. If you're learning new vocabulary words makes them flash cards that go directly from English to the item. Not your language not English to your

Remember somebody's birthday or like, I'm still I still remember a ton of phone numbers from when like from like friends of when I was a kid like I remember the phone numbers.

But I won't have many like I just met with an old friend, and she told me all these stories about myself and us hanging out when we were younger like in our teenage years, man. I'm like, oh my gosh.

Right. So desert is spelled with two S's and desert is spelled with one s I always remember it. As is what is it? Oh, I always remember that dessert is better than the desert.

"Yeah. So if we're not talking about the time clocks, it means to you. You have an energy in your step, and you physically forward, you advance your body forward a few feet or that's why envision like a sprinter spring forward when the clock goes off they spring forward and they start running right? Right. Right. Exactly. So this has a double meaning it's to spring like to like, you know, physically get ahead bud as also this season spring. So that's how you remember. I right. Yep. That's why it's kind of a fun phrase. Yeah. And then fall back is I think if someone just falling backwards, so but it has that double meaning to fall back physically and also to the elbow this season. Yeah. Exactly falling backwards for your long winter nap. Right. Right. Right. Right. Exactly. So. Yeah. So that's what it is. Yeah. I don't know. But I think it's. Depressing. Yeah. But you know, sometimes people do like it. They do like when the clocks see, I have to even think of it. Now, they have to they like it in. Let's see I guess November. When the clocks fallback because then you get an extra hours sleep. Right. And you lose an hour way. They spring forward. Right. But but it's only really for that day feels weird. And then you get back to normal in terms of the amount. Well, sort of I like it though, I love it like spring evenings. When you first noticed that it's light out later. It's like a whole there's a sense of euphoria. You know what I mean? It's like, wow. Like optimism you all the stuff that comes with springtime. Yeah. That's true. It is. It is exciting like when that starts to happen. Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. But yeah, I mean, it it takes me usually a few days to get over the time change. I think they say that there's more car accidents when this happened because people are kind of like, you know, off from this hour change. It's a weird feeling. Yeah. And it's also confusing. If you work a lot of. Cross the world with the I remember, I think in Brazil, they also change their clocks, but they're the schedule on which they change it is different from ours. So I remember missing when I used to work one on one with students way back in the day. It would get really confusing when there was like a window, and we would change and then they would change. And then all of a sudden we'd be like three hours apart instead of one hour apart. I not his lessons because it was confusing like sh-. Well, it's good now because the cell cellphone pretty much does it automatically. Yeah. Oh, that's true. But like other sometimes I I remember I used to like not change like in my car. I used to not change the clock yet. I would just like have it for the whole like half a year, and like, however long it is an and like I would just have it the wrong time. And just remember it under like, I'm too lazy to change it. That's very weird. I know why don't you know, I like to be different. So yeah, I mean so this spring forward fall back. This is you know, really good for aids. And I think, you know, it's not really something that people say that much. It's more like a thing to just help yourself. Remember, you might think to yourself, but you might say it in a conversation, right? Yeah. Exactly. I mean, this could easily come up in you know, if you guys are living in the US and you wanna connect with your colleagues. This could definitely come up in a conversation like the Monday morning after the change in the spring. You could say like, oh, I'm a little sleepy this morning. We we went forward with our clocks. So it feels weird or something like that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely these are things people talk about. So I mean, if you do wanna talk about it, you can say some a couple of different things like what's something you might say Lindsay. Well, you would say don't forget to turn your clocks forward or back tonight. You're reminding people, right? Yeah. Yeah. Or you might say something like, oh, I can't wait for the extra hour of sleep or. Oh, I can't wait for the extra. Daylight something like that. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Yeah. I could see this being a topic of conversation. Oh, small talk. Right. Yes. Good small talk topic. Yeah. So yeah. I mean, if we were going to have a conversation about this Lindsey, like if we're two friends talking about the time change. Yeah. A little role play. Let's try it out. All right. Okay. Yeah. All right Lindsey. So I'll see you tomorrow at eight. Yes. Oh, wait. Hey, it's daylight savings time. So don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight. Oh, eight forward forward. Yeah. Spring forward fall back. That's right. Oh, I can't wait to have the extra daylight. Okay. You how would feel? Yes. Yes. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So you know, you might just have a conversation like that. Right. So I said, I know you said don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight. And then you're like, wait a second forward. Yeah.

"Yeah. I'm not always sure how to handle these situations. Like, I mean, do you think it's rude to comment on someone's weight loss say, no, I don't think. So I think I mean, obviously if someone's gained a lot of weight like, yo. Yeah. Clearly, but I think when it comes to weight loss is usually not a root thing. It's usually. It's usually nice like we, you know, you could say something like you look great, which doesn't have to be directly about the weight. Right. I mean, I think that generally people are happy when others recognize their weight loss, especially if it's if it's a lot of weight like, and so this person, I think our listeners said it was a lot of weight too. If it's like, oh, you lost like the person lost five pounds. They might be a little bit embarrassed of us as on them. Because maybe they weren't. They didn't know that people could tell that they had put on weight. You You know know what what I mean? I mean? Yeah. True. But I think if it's a lot it's probably something that they worked hard on and things I think they will appreciate the acknowledgement generally. But I know I always feel funny in the situations. So I mean, but how do we say it? I mean a moon. He said, you know, it's good. What Mooney said is good? But maybe asking did you work out as the first thing is like a little bit direct. Right. And to just say you lost lots of weight. Maybe these things are a little bit direct. I maybe would have said like you look incredible. Did you lose weight as an option to ask that question? Right. By like, you said, you could just say you look incredible. But you know, complementing the person first before saying did you work out? Right. That will make them happy. Yeah. Yeah. So just going to the more general comment verse. Like, you look amazing. You look incredible. You look great. And then maybe asking something did you lose some weights? So the the weight is not at the very beginning. It's. Not all about the pounds and the weight and how they looked and look now it's more about there being like if you say you look incredible. It could be about a lot more than just the actual size of their waistband. You know, right. Right. Right. Exactly. Yeah. You gotta get that in there. Yeah. So they could look vibrant. They could look healthy. You know what I mean? It's a whole body thing. And you're right. Michelle, though, it is good to acknowledge it because they've if you're going to lose like one hundred pound or one hundred fifty pounds, you totally overhauled your lifestyle you've made a massive change. And I'm sure they would like to be acknowledged with right? If you if you work so hard, and then it's like, nobody noticed. And I feel I mean, you know, but everybody's different. Like, this is just one of those things that everybody is different. And so like, you know, I was saying I don't always know how to handle this myself. So you know, you really got to read the situation think about the person you're talking to. Well, I think one way to handle this is like it's say something like a very benign like say something like, oh, you look amazing. You know, did you lose weight? And then let them continue. Let them say something more if they want to right, right, right? I think that's a good point. Yes. So I mean, that's how I would answer this question. But you know, I want to also talk about how could you answer? How could you talk about your own weight loss? If you if you lost some weight, right Lindsay. Yeah. Exactly. So if it were in my position of I lost could say one thing I could say is. Yeah, I took off about thirty pounds. Right. Right. Right. Or you could say like, oh, I shed a ton of weight by swimming or something like that by doing yoga or by like, yeah. Doing like running marathons or. Or something. Yeah. Exactly. What's another one? Michelle, you could say something like, oh, I've been working out a lot and watching my diet. So yeah, I have lost weight. Thanks for noticing. Yeah. So those are good things to say. I mean. Yeah, I think the the key here is just let the other person talk. You're the one asking just let them and if they want to change the subject, let them do that to. Exactly, exactly so. Yeah. I mean, I think you're let's do a little role play. We're showing how this conversation might go. Okay. Sounds good. Michelle you ready? Okay. Yeah. Here we go. Hey lindsey. Oh, it's been so long. Wow. You look incredible. Did you lose weight? Yeah. I did Michelle. I took off about twenty pounds. Oh, that's amazing. Congrats. How'd you do it? Well, I've been working out a lot and watching my diet. So it just slid off. That's awesome. Thanks for noticing, by the way. Okay. Sure thing. All right. So yeah. It didn't sound like you were offended here did it. But of course, it was a make believe situation cry right now. I I don't think it's offensive for someone to say you look incredible. That's not offensive. That's that's that's kind. That's just

"How can you ask people to stay in touch and communicate with you on what's going on today? Get these five useful ways to say it like natives do. Lindsay. How's it going? Great, michelle. How are you? I'm good. I'm good. Everything's good over here. So today, I I've been you know, sometimes I episode ideas because of things that I'm saying in my real life. And I think those are really important moments to kind of keep track of right because that's real English. Right. Oh a hundred percent. I love doing that. I mean, we are observers of language here. So that we can help our listeners right to really connecting. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. I love it. So guys these are things that you know, Lindsey, and I are really using data day going to be really natural. So this episode is really about you know, when you want to let someone know that they should keep you informed about something. Right. So common. Yeah. I mean, this is a huge opportunity for connection. So this could be like, for example, like if a family member has a job interview. Or what else he oh, man? A lot of things if you want to hear about. A decision that someone's thinking about making let's say they went to you for advice. And you know, you help them talk through it and think through it. But they haven't decided yet. You wanna hear what they decide? So. Yeah. Or what else? Yeah. I mean, if like, for example, that you want to hear her house someone's for stay at work or school was you know, so many different situations. Right. Basically, you know, being informed and somebody's life and saying that it's important to you. That's why I think it's so such a connection skill a hundred percent. So let's get this is about phrases. This is about natural native phrases that that people are using all the time. And so what are some of those Michelle Ryan? Well, the one that I was using naturally was keep me posted right, right? And also I've been planning for baby. And all these things like I've been trying to like learn a lot, and you know, maybe talking to like stores have out different. You know made them's coming in. So this the phrase that I noticed that I'd been used. Using a lot was keep me posted. And I love this one. What do you think about this one Lindsey I like this one? I I actually don't I mean, this is so common. This is this belongs in our top twenty most common episodes. I don't use it. Because for some reason, I don't like it. But oh, really. Yeah. For some reason, it feels weird to say, but it's so natural. It's that's my own weird quirk. I'm so weird. Sometimes with words and phrases. Is there something about it like that you don't actively? I usually I don't know me posted just because it is so common. So, but that's yeah. But I think it's great. I think it's a great phrase to teach our listeners here for sure. Yeah. Okay. So how could we is this Lindsey? So all right. So I'll talk to you next week after my appointment. Great. Keep me posted. I'm excited to hear. What happens? Yes. Love it. Love it. Yeah. This is so natural guy. So definitely use. It definitely. Is it even though Lindsay doesn't like it? I'm a little picky. When it comes to words, I'm aware nerd and. That's funny. That's funny. All right. Well, what's another one Lindsay me? Let's see. Let's see if you can find one you like here. Okay. Yeah. Let me know what happens use this one for Okay. one. Yes. So all right. Let's show our listeners. Yeah. Yeah. All right. So. I'm calling the hiring manager. I'm so nervous. I know it'll be great. Let me know what happens. Nice. Right. So maybe I'm, you know, checking the see the status of a job interview. I went on or my resume or something like that. Yep. Let me know. What happens? Follow up with me. Right. Keep me posted. There you go. Right. Yeah. You could've used the one as well. Unless you're Lindsey, and you don't like, yeah. I don't know. I'm weird. But why do you think these kinds of phrases are important? Like, why don't you just say, oh, I know it'll be great. And then just stop there. Right. Because it shows that you are interested in staying connected to them. And it's actually really important. It's a skill that, you know, some people are really good at maintaining their social circle. And checking in with people often, you know, like maintaining and other people just gonna let their connections, go, right? This is a way you can keep your circle tight. You can make sure people know you care about what's Harry. Yeah. I think I think that's so important because you know, if you just leave that out like adding this in just shows like, okay, I want to I want us. They connect. I want to hear your this is important to me as well. Because I care

"Skull, right? Because sometimes you may not want to do something unless you're with a particular crowd. And I have my own thoughts about that. Like do you ever? Did you ever like invite something someone to someone and then they go well who's going? Oh my God. That's the worst of that room someone. So that's something you should not say to someone because they might feel bad. They might feel. I'm not enough. Oh, yeah. I'm just thinking about now to say that so. Yeah. Never just say like well who's going to be there? Right. Like, okay. Well, you're not good enough. So let's. If the other people can motivate may, right? Yeah. No don't say that don't say that. Right. So I mean, you know, but in this situation at sounds like this person, either would be going alone. Or maybe there's one other person. I'm not I'm not quite sure. But it just sounds like, oh, they're trying to get their friend to join them and say that oh they'd be happy to happier to go with they came as well. Yeah. Yeah. This is good. I mean, this is a good skill super in bri-. Yeah. So you want to express that feeling because it could be flattering to that person. Right. So use it as a point of connection. Yeah. Absolutely. And use your tone of voice here to express. This is not just about the words. Also about the way you say it, right? Right. Right. Right. So I mean, our listener ask could you say I'd be encouraged to go. What do you think? I mean, you could like the person would understand you. But it sounds a little formal and not quite right. Yeah. Yeah. There are some better things Carlo to that you could use here. We're going to show you them. Yeah. I mean, I think that this feeling of having your mood changes something important to be able to explain right? You'd be feeling this, and then you'd be feeling this. So so what cabbie Larry can you use? Right. So we're going to talk about that. Yes. So definitely the would write using would. So I would or I'd right, right. And expressing the feeling right? Exactly. So yeah, I think the first step is expressing how you're feeling. And then the second one is talking about how your mind could be changed. Right. So like about how your mind could be changed for that. Second step. Yeah. I would I could I might be blank to go. Right. All kinds of hypotheticals or conditionals loving, right? Right. Right. Exactly. So what's one thing that you could say Lindsay, and if and if you wouldn't say something on this list like, yeah. Pointed out where I will. All right. So what do you think? So first of all ready. Last week sales open for our Tokyo, power English immersion, weekend, and sponsor limited to only fifty students. So if you didn't get your ticket yet, and you live in Japan go and grab it now at all ears English dot com forward slash Tokyo. We'll get to meet us. Well, you bring your English to a new level with our immersion method with native speakers in just one weekend all ears English dot com forward slash Tokyo. Okay. So would I'd be motivated. Right. So something like, I'm not feeling up to going alone. But if you were with me I'd be motivated to go or I'd be more motivated to go. I yeah. I mean, I would say that. I think I might use this one in particular when it comes to like the gym. Maybe I was just thinking your soul. Right. I just had the same thought. Yeah. This is less about like going like an energy like entertainment. It's more about like something that you should do for your body or your mind. But you know, you need the motivation because you don't have it by yourself. Right. It's like, oh, I would like to be sitting on my couch watching TV and eating brownies. But if you're going to go to the gym, I'll be motivated to go. I'd be motivated. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So yeah. I bees that one specifically for like, fitness and things that require self-discipline. Right. Right. Right up like in this next example. So we have would be driven to and be driven to go. Yeah. Or something. Yeah. I love this word driven. Right. So to describe a person. Oh, like the person don't entrepreneur, they're very driven. I don't know if I would use it here in a conversation with a friend is mono, Michelle. What do you think? I mean, it came into my mind. So it must have happened from somewhere. But. I agree. I think like more than motivated one might be good. But like I mean, you could say like, oh, I don't like hot yoga that much. But if you're going I'd be driven to join you or something like that. Yeah. I mean, I don't think it's like wrong or anything. But maybe the first one is a little bit more natural. Yeah. To me, it just sounds a little bit more formal like driven. But but this is a great word. I feel like we could do an episode on outer drive. Ibe like motivated people who's in there. Yeah. That would be maybe we could

Like, I feel like maybe a pillar version of myself in this language because I don't have the vocabulary. I don't have the attitude. I can't be myself. And that's a pain point. That's a major problem for a lot of our students. A listen our listeners, all it's huge. And you know, I think this is essentially why it is sort of easier for like little kids to learn another language than it is for adults to learn another language because we're an adult. You are you're as you've you know, who you are at this point. You've tried out some other ways of being and you've sort of settled on yourself. You know, who you are? But and you can do that in your first language, you could beat you in your first language, and then when you're trying to speak another language, it's like you revert back to you know, infancy or whatever. And you're like I can't say what I want to say. I can't do what I want to do. And it's really frustrating. And so part of that, of course is vocab. So we're going to help you guys think you're out. Where's the best place for you to get this real vocabulary? Right. Like how where do you go to learn how to express yourself in English? But another part of it is sort of like, this bigger piece first of all like figure out who what what is the best thing about you at how can you do this in English as well as I love it. And once we have this information once we know how to do this the sky's the limit, right? Because at that point, we're empowered with these skills, and we start to envision we start to see that person. Again, that we know we are in our native language, and we can see the path to getting to the point where we can express ourselves. He like ourselves, right? It's a horrible feeling not feeling like yourself right tangible. I mean, everybody has those days, I think that just happens. Sometimes this is the biggest pain point, right? Like, what is holding you back in English? And that always just like, I think that idea is what governs everything we do. Right. We don't want anything to hold you back in English. And that's what I'm so excited about this like this particular web class, I think more than any other. I'm just gonna go out on a limb that I am more excited about this one. This is just what's so fun to think about so like a big part of this right is finding your role models. Right. Like, that's the heart of it. Like, how who are you going to follow an English that goes back to what Lindsey said a minute ago about knowing what your goals are having these clear goals in front of you. So having this idea of who you want to sound like, right? Like, how can you beat us in English you need that example, that model so you have a clear destination? Exactly. So when it caused so maybe we can just. Briefly give our listeners a little sneak peek of how exactly we're going to do that how they're gonna do that on this web class

And there's this one guy who's kind of like watching me as I walk into the bar and he's kind of like a little bit taller than others and he's there, and he sees me until I naturally just walked straight up to him because he looked like he was interested in talking and we started talking like, hey, how's it going? You know, what do you do? And he asked me what I did, and I said, oh, I have an ESL podcast and English as a second language podcast. And he says, oh that that's so cool. Do you know someone.

It's going well, Michelle. We're getting into September now, so that's crazy. You know, getting back to work back to business all good stuff. Yeah. Do you do well, okay. Well, actually, today, I guess as Labor Day, right? Yeah, I guess so Monday, September, third, it's the unofficial or official culturally official end of the summer. How sad? Right? Because culturally this summer guys in the US considered Memorial Day to Labor Day. Oh, it's always a little bit depressing. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I think so, too. I mean, it's, you know, it's nice. It's it's nice to like kind of have a barbecue or do something like that, but it's still. I mean, what are you usually do in Labor Day? Lindsay often celebrate it. I don't really. I mean, it's usually day off. I don't usually work because you know Labor Day, but I usually go down to the beach on the south shore, but it's usually like families that come there for the summer. They pack up and they leave like that day. So you see people leaving and packing up for the summer and like boarding houses and that kind of thing. It's a little depressing. And then it just gets really quiet in the neighborhood. But you know, it's a day off, so it's a long weekend. So the very common travel holiday in the US. Yeah, that's usually what I do. Yeah. Nice. Nice. Yeah, so very good. So I used a word often to ask about this, so we're going to get into that in a little bit, but Lindsay you wanted to remind our listeners of something. I do guys now that we're getting into September.

So go over there and get it. Go do it. Definitely. All right, good. Okay, guy. So today we got a great question for Melissa about pronunciation of some very specific words, but really good words to ask about. So it's Dunkin from Taiwan. Lindsay. Would you like to read the question? All right. So here we go. So Duncan says, hi, Lyndsay, Michelle, this is Dunkin from Taiwan. Thank you guys for having such a great podcast and I listen every night before I sleep. I love it so much. Oh, that's nice where I'm glad that we're glad we can be your lullaby and that's really good to listen to English natural English before you go to bed because I feel like what you do right before bed. You remember into cement that into your mind lease. I think it's a good strategy. So I have two questions about pronunciation. The first one is often or often I have noticed many times that Lindsey pronounces it often. With even wrote that. That's right here that interesting. I guess I do, which we usually pronounce often with a silent t. sound though. So I was like to know which way sounds more correct or more native. The second one is Chicago. One of my English teachers Canadian taught me that it should be pronounced shook. Kogyo should cause a cog. Oh, I'm not sure, but I had some westerners also pronounce Chicago. Oh, I'm not sure. I think maybe he's trying to delineate the difference between s. h. and c. h. like sh- and church is that what he's made clear on on your confusion about Chicago, but that's okay. So then he says, Likewise, I wonder which one is more corrector native. Thank you so much. I love you guys. Sincerely yours Dunkin. Cool. Thanks Duncan, good questions the end and definitely good question. I mean, yeah, Lindsay, dude. I mean, I. Say that often, but I do actually know dunk is I have heard you say and not that it's it's not wrong. It doesn't sound weird to me or anything, but like I've just noticed it because it is kind of one of those words that people pronounce a little bit
