  • Hello, everybody.

  • This is Elliot from E T J.

  • English on it.

  • It's so good to see you.

  • Firstly, I just need to start this video by saying thank you 300,000 subscribers on this YouTube channel.

  • Thank you to everyone who has pressed that subscribe button.

  • Those of you who pressed it three or four years ago and those of you who are subscribing now and watching the old videos Thank you to everyone.

  • I won't do a big Oscars speech.

  • Let's let's save the speech for when we reach one million subscribers right Today we have a very, very useful lesson.

  • We're going to be talking about how we can end conversations ending conversations.

  • Is Justus important?

  • A starting them.

  • If you're talking to someone and then you see your watch and you suddenly realize, Oh, I'm late, I need to pick the kids up from school that there are many, many different situations where you can find yourself needing to escape a phone call or a conversation with someone on.

  • A lot of it actually comes down to Internation eso.

  • Make sure you have your singing voices with you today because we're going to be practicing Cem Internation to show that we're kind of ending a conversation.

  • Let's start with three or four kind of really useful words which can end a conversation or begin the end.

  • The first thing you need to do is look for the gaps.

  • You can't just interrupt someone while they're talking and say I need to go.

  • You have to wait for the gaps.

  • If you want to be polite.

  • So you have tow.

  • Wait until that person has left a pause in their speech or if they've kind of finished talking about something in particular.

  • Or maybe you've just reached an awkward silence on you need to say goodbye now.

  • And you could simply say, Okay, well, all right or right?

  • Or anyway, so try and copy the way I say these.

  • The first one.

  • Okay.

  • Okay.

  • Okay.

  • Next one.

  • All right, right.

  • Right.

  • Anyway, anyway, it's very hard to explain with the hands.

  • Internation is a lot easier to explain when you have a white board.

  • Which is why I created an online course.

  • So using these words in these ways a kind of ways of asserting our authority.

  • It's a way of us saying I'm in here now I'm speaking, and it's time to say goodbye.

  • Time for me to end this conversation so we just use a simple words to begin the goodbye.

  • The listener, especially if they're native, will know when you do this they will.

  • Definitely 100% know that you're ready to go, because it's the way that you say.

  • It's the fact that you're just filling a gap by saying one of these words in a particular tone.

  • It's like saying time to get.

  • Then we need to follow up.

  • So I need you to think about a few things.

  • Is this someone that you're very close with?

  • Is this someone that you see often?

  • If it's someone that you see quite a lot, maybe you're seeing them next week or you're calling them next week.

  • Or you could simply say, Okay, well, I'll call you next week or all right, well, we'll catch up next week.

  • Or if you want to add a question tag anyway, we're seeing each other next week.

  • Aren't we on way?

  • We're seeing each other next week, aren't we?

  • So you could say, for example, right, I best be off anyway.

  • It's been lovely talking to you, but I need to go and pick the kids up from school.

  • Okay?

  • I'd better get a move on.

  • Okay, I'd better get a move on.

  • Better get a move on.

  • Better get er, move on.

  • To get a move on means to leave to get onto the next thing I need to do.

  • So you can actually tell someone.

  • Get a move on.

  • And that means hurry up, do this faster and so we can get on to the next thing.

  • So I'd better get a move on.

  • Means I'd better kind of stop talking to you now because I need to go and do something else.

  • Very, very popular.

  • One.

  • And this one I use a lot.

  • So if you're stuck, this is a really good one on.

  • It's a very quick ones.

  • Well, anyway, I won't keep you anyway.

  • I won't keep you on.

  • That means, um I won't continue wasting your time.

  • It's kind of like a polite way of ending a conversation because it's like a way of saying, um, I won't waste your time any longer.

  • I won't keep you to myself for any longer because you probably have other people to see or talk to you, and that's how it works.

  • We push a word in there to say that we're going to say goodbye.

  • We then follow it up with a polite statement that we need to go to the gym or do something, or that we will speak to them next week or tomorrow or call them later.

  • Or maybe we just need to say, I need to get going.

  • I have things to do.

  • So I we don't even have to explain what we're going to do.

  • We could just say I'd better get a move on or I won't keep you meaning we're in a rush.

  • We need todo, so I hope that kind of helps.

  • It sounds very simple when it's explained by a teacher, but it is actually very complicated.

  • But if you copy my tone, you copy the way I speak.

  • I promise you it will become easier to say goodbye.

  • An end conversations with people.

  • Anyway, I hope this lesson helped you today.

  • We will be returning with a pronunciation lesson next week.
