"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. Yeah. So again, so we're talking about how you can decide. What slang words are you going to make yours on what are you gonna leave behind? Right. So here here's some things that I think you should think about. So the first thing is where did you hear it? I was it a movie is at a new movie is an old movie who who said it, right? You know, think about like a, you know, where it where is this coming from like because that's if wherever you heard it, I think about okay, like do I relate to this person? Does this seem like something that I might say is it a movie from the nineteen fifties? That's gonna make me question. A little bit right? Yeah. Because there's definitely a lot of oh cab from the fifties. That's very outdated. Right. We've talked about the word swell. And we've talked to how the those things that we have to be careful. Yeah. So I like that idea first of all where did you hear? It who said it, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. What's the what's the next one? Lindsey. We'll have you heard it in any other places. So are people saying it frequently or when you look it up, and you see the meaning do you recognize the other ways that people use the words, right? So. You know, do you hear what? So what do we mean here? Michelle. What do you mean? Okay. Yeah. Basically, if if you're if you're looking at up in you, look jonesing, and then you see the were let's say you see like a synonym or something like that. And it's a craving somebody rents craving like do recognize these words, do you? Do you do you? Hear those words more frequently. So maybe you're like, oh, I haven't heard jonesing, but I looked at up and I see the word craving. Oh, I hear that a lot. Yeah. And maybe you know, how to use cravings you'd know how to use jonesing, right? Right. Right. Right. Right. So. Yeah. So have you heard of more than once? And then the third thing is could it be regional, right? So that could also be something where if you know where you heard it first, maybe you what maybe you're watching a show. Maybe you're watching friends or like some show or like a show that takes place in California or wherever and your thank. Okay. Well, maybe it's a regional thing. So some slang is more popular in certain parts of the country than others. So I think that you should look into. This when you're when you're thinking about this new phrase or word, what do you think Lindsay? Oh, definitely in. I think that's so important. It's so true. It's going to sound a little weird if you're from California and you visit the south and you hear a slang in the south used, and then you go back to California and you start using it. And it's only used in the southern region of the US. I mean, I think the other pieces like making sure you truly understand the meaning full. Yeah. You know because like we've seen here. Clearly, this is a reference to like drug addiction does jonesing, and I don't think it's going to necessarily label you in any way, if you use it, but there are certain slayings that would label you in a certain way, if you use them like and also you could be saying something, you don't know that you're saying, right, right. So making sure you totally get it like fully talked to a native speaker and sometime speakers, don't even get don't even totally get all the slayings. And what they mean? Oh, are you? Oh, I definitely don't especially at some like this. I feel like I know I'm, you know, aging because I'll be like, oh, I don't know what that word that means like or like, I know they're idioms and slang that we used to say as kids, and we didn't necessarily know that there are a little bit offensive. And we and if we don't question those as we get older were saying something offensive, and we don't know it for sure. Yeah. There's a lot of that. Yeah. There's. A lot of that. So what's the point though, Michelle? I mean, this is a deep topic that we could go into another day for sure. Yeah. The the foreign one is are you willing to take risks? Right. And this is important. I mean, I think what is the worst that will happen. Yeah. Now, of course, you don't wanna say something offensive. That's the only thing you wanna make sure it's not something that's going to offend someone rain that tough. So that when you look into it, be sure. That that it's not something offensive. So you know, I mean, but if it's not again, what's the worst? I will happen. I think it's worth trying new Fraser asking a friend about it. So if someone says jonesing to me if somebody were to just throw that out there, I would at might years might perk up for a second. But I it would sound different to me. But it wouldn't sound bad. Like, an I think the fact that you would be taking a risk is a good thing. So like, yeah. Nothing is going to happen, right? Yeah. Thank ones. I. Well. I totally agree with you. Michelle me, it's kind of the flip side of what we just said. Like understanding the meaning. But also, we when we're learning new language. We can't understand everything all the time. Right. We're always hedging into a zone where we don't. We don't know what's going on. Right. And that's to me that's kind of the beauty of learning a new language and traveling and exploring cultures. We don't always know everything that's going on. And that is okay. Coming back to connection is our key right here on this show. We come as long as we can build that connection. That's. Part of taking. That's what you know. Sometimes we have to take risks to build a connection. So I agree. I mean, I think it's okay

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

"Hello girls. Here. I am again with another question. I love your work, your discussions, your topics and everything else from your show. Thank you very much for keeping going with it because it's so interesting for us. Well, here's my question. The other day my daughter was really badly behaving Halloween party. She wanted her friend her friend's today. And didn't listen to me when I told her to stop yelling. It was a big circus, sir. I had to take her out of the party. And we went back home. Besides the parent challenge about how to educate my daughter. My question is what is the name of her bad behavior? I mean, when I was explaining to another friend what happened I wanted to tell her that she was yelling and behaving like a spoiled child. I couldn't find the word that I wanted. But I believe she understood the message after though I looked for the better way to describe the situation and I found the word tantrum. Oh, yeah. Does it work to describe my daughter's behavior that day? Could you give me more tips about how to talk about this situation? Thank you very much again Carlotta. Okay. This made me laugh Carlo. Sorry. Are you at a hard time with your with your daughter? Yeah. This is really tough. I mean, an like that Carlo is looking for ways to connect with other moms through this in English. Right. So if you're raising a kid in the US or the UK you want to connect with other moms, of course, needs to describe what your daughter did. Great, right, right. Yeah. I mean, would you use the word tantrum? Lindsey. Yeah. I I think we're gonna have a bunch of fun expressions. And I feel like lately a lot of my friends are like at that age where they have like toddlers a lot of my friends have kids now. And so there's some really fun phrases that I feel like have been coming out a lot lately like meltdown. That's a good one. There will down having a meltdown. Yep. That's good one. That is. Yeah. We got to add that one. Yeah. Like. But yeah. So it sounds like, you know, Carla daughter was having a hard time. Yeah. I think if a child is behaving in a spoiled way, they they may be having a tantrum. But they may not be right. A spoiled child may be yelling or may just be acting in a way that shows they think they're the most important, right? But they may not be yelling. Right. So I think spoiled can be you know, have different behaviors. Whereas temper tantrum or temper tantrum is mostly about the yelling part, right? Yeah. For sure for sure I just imagine a screaming kid, a kid is freaking out screaming and crying and nothing will stop them from crying. That's a temper tantrum. That's a tantrum or

The outside of the street where you could maybe park or stop for a second outside of traffic. Yeah. For sure I feel like this one is the one we use the most. What do you think I think so too? Yeah. Sure. So even like when my friends and I were on our road trip, right? And we're hungry, and we're looking for a place to eat, and I'm like, oh, I see a sandwich shop there pullover.

You know that would never happen to ask Whereas spot. spot. Wasn't. It would I was a young driver. I was kinda crazy with this need. But now, I'm very careful. Yeah. Or even like, if you're driving with a friend, and there's some sort of issue. Maybe there's an issue with the car or like to like look for something in your bag. Right.

"The phrase of by any chance do you use this? Yeah, I do for sure I think it's kind of polite. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. One was asking about formal or casual I think it's on the formal side. But I it doesn't mean that I wanted to use it in casual situations. But I like what you said that it's polite. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's play. It's kind of trying to be a little bit less invasive or a little bit less direct. So when when you feel like you might be putting someone out by making a request like you may be pushing a little too much. You could add by any chance. Right. Right. Right. So yeah. When I actually looked at it in the dictionary mentioned that it was I quote are used in tentative enquiries or suggestions. And also, I think about it that it's really just using. Yes. Or no questions. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. Exactly. Because right. So in the beginning, we said can you record next Thursday by any chance? Sure sounds good and great. So it wouldn't be like, oh, like what are you wearing to the party by any chance? It would have to be. Yeah. Just yes or no. Yeah. So I mean, I I've heard it used in other places in questions like if you use it at the beginning middle end, right? But it's most frequently used at the end like, oh, did you pick up the groceries by any chance, right? Yeah. It's kind of you know, when you add that it's like what's the difference between saying did you pick up the groceries? Right. Why did you pick up the groceries by any chance? It's a little softer. Yes. A little softer. Yes. Yes. Yes. And would you say I mean, could you use it at the beginning? Could you say by any chance did you pick up the groceries? Yeah. I think so. Yeah. Or what about the middle? Did you by any chance pick up the groceries? Totally totally not show. Yeah. Yeah. I think any of them really work. Yeah. One hundred percent, right. So or you know, you can use it as you know, maybe as I said that the. The dictionary mentioned that you could use it for suggestions. Right. So as a suggestion, you could say like would you by any chance wanna see the three PM movie instead of the six PM? Yeah. So it's kind of again, it's trying to soft and what you're saying not be so direct not be so pushy, but still

"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

And Michelle Kaplan, the New York radio girl coming to you from Boston and New York City U S a and to get your transcripts delivered by Email every week. Go to all ears English dot com forward slash subscribe. The web class is coming up soon. And you don't wanna miss this unique opportunity to grab your spot. So today find out how to sign up. Hey lizzy. What's happening? Hey, Jessica, I am ready for the first web class of twenty nine thousand nine is going at pick. It's going to be awesome. I am so excited about this web Ghazi guys we were working on it just recently. Right. Just getting everything you guys. And honestly, it's been so fun to design this web class. Like, this is such a creative learning opportunity. I mean, this is a huge goal, right? Yeah. How can you express your personality? How can you be you in English? This is cameras so Lindsey, and I have been working really hard to break this down into real actions. You guys could take to do this. Oh, absolutely. Because over the year, you know, you, and I we've both been teaching for more than ten years right for a long time and working with so many students I worked with a lot of students one on one before we started this podcast and back in. Twenty ten and two thousand seven ages ago. Right and students would always tell me, I can't be myself in English. 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

It was Tuesday, Wednesday night, and I went to a happy hour in town in Philly, which by the way it was nice having the conference in Philly because you could walk around the city. Lots of walking was great and I walked into the happy hour. So crowded as sole loud and everyone is making noise and just just socializing having fun. 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. He said a name and I didn't know that person. And then he said, but also there there's also another there were there were two podcasters shows two women. One of them had moved to Japan.

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 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
