  • with a native teacher couldn't be better so we hope you enjoy that enjoy the

  • video name the first thing that you notice when you meet somebody new

  • oh their eyes

  • why are the eyes so special cuz you look into them first

  • that's how you see anyway yeah or if they have pretty eyes

  • yeah and you like them

  • if they're just dull eyes then well then you pretend like they're pretty for their sake

  • I think mouth in my case oh right

  • I tend to look at people being slightly deaf I think I lip read a bit you know

  • and so I tend to look at people's mouths rather than their eyes

  • anything else that's really important their smile yeah

  • okay

  • what's the first thing you notice when you meet someone new their eyes their

  • teeth okay do you look into their dental records [laughter] no

  • do you like it if they've got glasses is that a deal breaker I don't care

  • you don't care contact lenses I don't care, no

  • take anything yeah

  • their smile probably generally speaking British people are quite stereotypically

  • bad with smiling at people in the street but oh really

  • I think it's quite important in this day and age so yeah

  • their face or like their outfit what did you think when you first saw our outfits

  • studenty [laughter] that's a good one

  • yeah d'you know what I mean I do yeah I feel quite studenty

  • yeah yeah something like that

  • I think it's me trying to hold

  • on to my youth yeah cling to the last shreds

  • what's something that you notice about someone when you

  • meet them instantly instantly how good-looking they are

  • how good-looking they are

  • would you say in New Zealand people are more smiley yeah I'd say that

  • I'd say that I think that people just get a bad rep and especially big cities

  • like London for being busy and not very approachable but most Londoners I

  • feel they are quite approachable good

  • do you make a conscious effort to just stare at the

  • mouth or do you go back and forth between the eyes and the

  • mouth or yeah well I think you should look people in the eyes they expect it

  • so I make that conscious effort yeah you look at your person's face yes and

  • then you ask questions and hopefully you get a feeling for what sort of person

  • they are yeah in a short period of time

  • do you think it's strange because I

  • was talking to Charlie about this the other day he said if you look at someone

  • in the eyes for longer than five seconds people get a bit weirded out they feel

  • uneasy how do you feel about that no I wouldn't never experienced that no

  • I s'pose [suppose] yeah perhaps you're right looking at you now yeah [laughter]

  • I am not like my wife she very much

  • looks at the person and decides what they're like before even having their

  • conversation which annoys me intensely because there are beauty is only

  • skin-deep some people have very piercing eyes don't they

  • yeah like Hitler the Hitler stare

  • his eyes were very distinctive apparently yeah he had a very piercing menacing gaze

  • yeah well you haven't you have lovely soft eyes

  • so you like to give them a bit more time yeah I do yeah

  • does your wife give them a second chance no

  • no right so she's quite cut-throat yeah

  • anything else that you notice first thing what about with your wife what did you

  • I suppose you notice the way they're

  • dressed don't you and you form an impression about them by the way they're dressed I suppose

  • and you kind of expect a certain style of dress with certain people don't you I

  • mean I would look at these youngsters over here and everyone is wearing trainers

  • you know there's not one proper pair of shoes amongst them and that's the way they are

  • I mean like today I'm wearing a jacket I'm not wearing a tie but

  • you look dapper you look very dapper the hat the long coat the shoes

  • yeah I mean not many people

  • have proper raincoats these days I don't suppose no

  • and that's a hangover from when I was at

  • work you know so yeah

  • still got it when I retired you've got style I think the older generations have a lot

  • more style than we do nowadays so we're going to leave Harry there to reminisce over the older

  • generation and they're less studenty appearance and ask you the same question
