  • I have a list off some very advanced English expressions used by natives used by me recently on.

  • I'm going to share them with you today to help you become a more confident English speaker.

  • Yeah.

  • Hello, everybody.

  • It's me, Elliot from E T J.

  • English.

  • And we're actually going to begin this lesson with an expression.

  • We need to address the very large elephant in the room when there is an elephant in the room.

  • It means that there is a big, obvious thing which weaken both.

  • See, we both know about, but we haven't discussed yet.

  • We haven't talked about yet.

  • We haven't addressed yet.

  • So we need to address the elephant in the room, which is the absolute mess on my head.

  • Yes, quarantine did lead me to cutting my own hair, and I've absolutely fucked it up on day.

  • Well, there's not much else to say.

  • So today this video goes out to all of you men and women who have tried to cut your own hair during this very difficult period of isolation.

  • While barber shops are closed, hairdressers are closed.

  • So let's get straight into the expressions today.

  • The first expression I want to talk about is when somebody receives a new lease off life.

  • It's a very advanced expression, a new lease of life.

  • We might say that somebody suddenly has a new lease of life.

  • Maybe since something happened on DTA have a new lease of life means that you have a new outlook or a new way of doing things.

  • And perhaps it's a positive thing.

  • It's like you have this new positive energy, positive emotion to do things.

  • So, for example, after recovering from the very terrible car crash he had, he suddenly got a new lease of life.

  • It's almost like he had a new reason to live on a new excuse to kind of do new things and just a different outlook on life.

  • That's the main thing Now the next one is something my mother used to say to me a lot when I was a child, and it comes with a very special sound, a diff thong we need to make before, and we'll begin with this Oy to start with a round shape in your mouth and then lift your tongue up on smile.

  • Oy, oy.

  • You can shout this as loud as you want If you do it in the UK, it will be to get someone's attention.

  • Will say if you say this anywhere in the UK, everybody will turn their heads, so we'll start with Oy, maybe to get someone's attention followed by.

  • Pack it in, pack it in, pack it in.

  • If we tell someone to pack it in, it means stop.

  • Stop doing what you're doing on.

  • It's usually because it's naughty, it's bad and you should not be doing it or I don't want you to be doing that.

  • It's usually something a teacher or a parent would say to someone there in control off, Pack it in.

  • So I was a very naughty child.

  • My mom was constantly telling me to pack it in.

  • Now shout out to my instagram.

  • I said this one on my instagram in one of my stories the other day, actually, a few weeks ago, and it waas keep your eyes peeled.

  • Keep your eyes peeled.

  • We'll talk about the pronunciation in a second, but to keep your eyes peeled essentially means keep them open wide open.

  • Your eyelids are the things we need to peel back so you can't blink.

  • Keep your eyes open.

  • Keep your eyes peeled, so to keep your eyes peeled.

  • Yeah, keep your eyes open, which basically means be aware.

  • Maybe something is going toe happen soon.

  • For example, on Instagram, I told my followers to keep their eyes peeled because my video will be released tomorrow.

  • So it's kind of like keep your eyes peeled to keep watching YouTube because at some point tomorrow boom, my YouTube video will appear.

  • Let's talk about the pronunciation because you might notice I'm pronouncing the letter Are here now, usually in British English.

  • We won't.

  • We'll just say your but because the next word eyes begins with a vowel sound.

  • I we're going to join the R at the end of your so your rise your eyes.

  • But the other thing to understand is that the word you're not important doesn't matter.

  • We don't need to pronounce it in its true form, so it becomes year.

  • So your eyes keep your eyes peeled, Keep your eyes peeled.

  • Okay, your eyes eyes is important.

  • So we do need to stress that word.

  • Keep your eyes peeled, so your becomes you, but we're adding the are to join toe eyes, which is stressed.

  • Keep your eyes peeled.

  • Now let's say I asked someone.

  • What's the time?

  • They might say to me, was bang on 12 bang on 12.

  • So the time is 12 o'clock, bang on 12.

  • But actually it's exactly 12.

  • Bang on means exactly precisely.

  • Okay, so let's say someone's playing dance.

  • They throw the dart and it hit the bull's eye.

  • Bang on bang on is to be very accurate or to be so accurate that it's completely right every time.

  • So bang on, we can also say Bang out Onda.

  • One I want to talk about today is if someone is bang out of order.

  • This is kind of a slang expression for something to be out of order usually means that it's not working.

  • Okay, so, for example, the toilets are out of order, meaning you can't enter them because they are not working.

  • We can also say that someone is being bang out of order, and that means you are not behaving correctly or what you did was wrong.

  • What you did was bang out of order, meaning you should not have done that.

  • It was a very bad thing to do.

  • So remember, bang on exactly bang out wrong.

  • Now the next expression I'm going toe kind of paint a picture for you Which, by the way, paint a picture.

  • So many expressions today paint a picture means describe for you.

  • Okay, so I'm painting it for you.

  • The story Let's say I have this amazing plan and I'm talking to my friend about it.

  • Maybe it's a plan.

  • Thio rob a bank.

  • I've come up with this amazing plan about how we're going Thio do it all on I said, turn around And I say to my friends, What do you think then?

  • Should we give it a go?

  • Shall we give it a go to give something a go means to try something Okay, so it's like saying Shall we try?

  • You might say Yeah, I'll give it a go.

  • Meaning Okay, I will try Now the next expression I'm going to give you another example.

  • This time let's say I have a friend called Tom and Tom was really, really drunk last night.

  • He can't remember anything he drank way too much on.

  • He has a really bad hangover today.

  • I'm trying to explain to him what happened about all of these crazy things he did, how he got in a fight he was dancing, took his clothes off on the dance floor.

  • He was just going absolutely crazy.

  • Typical Tom.

  • Typical Tom.

  • But he just can't remember anything because he drank so much.

  • So what I do is I grab my phone on.

  • I show him all of the pictures of all of the crazy things he did that night of him with his top off, waving it around in the air, going crazy.

  • And I say to him, Does that jog your memory?

  • Tom, jog your memory.

  • If something jogs your memory, it reminds you.

  • So does this jog your memory?

  • You'll show someone something, or tell someone something to try and jog their memory on another one.

  • I actually, to be honest, I need to create a list of all of these expressions because I've done so many.

  • If I've talked about this one before, I'm sorry.

  • This one is to get something off my chest.

  • If I have something which I want to get off my chest, it's maybe a secret, something which I've been keeping to myself.

  • Maybe I have feelings for someone or someone's being doing something which has really bean upsetting me on.

  • I just need to talk to them about it.

  • I need to get this off my chest.

  • So I might say to this person, Look, I just need to get this off my chest.

  • You're really annoying.

  • It's a great way to start solving maybe some problems you have inside with someone which you haven't really talked about yet.

  • You need to get it off your chest so you can kind of discuss.

  • So is there something that you've been meaning to tell me for ages?

  • Maybe you've never commented on my videos.

  • Maybe there's something you need to get off your chest.

  • Well, why don't you give it to go write something down in the comments right now?

  • These are just a few off many, many, many, many, many advanced expressions on.

  • Some of these are used a lot.

  • Some of them would just be used in specific situations, but we kind of need to know them because natives don't hold back.

  • We use expressions all of the time, and it's kind of just up to you to understand them.

  • And if you don't, it can make your conversation less enjoyable.

  • So that's why I make these videos.

  • And I really hope you found it useful today.

  • Please remember that it's not just saying the expressions you need to be able to pronounce them.
