  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Let's learn English at theactually I'm just at home today.

  • I thought I would make a video today to help you plan for, to help you to get ready for

  • an English conversation.

  • I'll go over 5 tips, 5 things that you can prepare so the next time you need to talk

  • to someone in English you'll be ready.

  • Hey if this is your first time here don't forget to click the subscribe button below,

  • and give me a thumbs up at some point during this video if it's helping you learn English.

  • And, there's something new today.

  • If you go down to the description you'll actually find some extra examples and you'll

  • find some things that you can work on to improve the English that you're learning in this

  • video.

  • That's all down there in the description, you might have to scroll a little bit to see

  • it.

  • So a while ago I made a video on how to prepare, how to plan to have a good English conversation.

  • I really believe that it's a good idea to be ready to talk about certain things before

  • you end up having an English conversation with someone.

  • I'll put a link to that video up here, but in this video I'll give you 5 more things

  • that you can plan on, that you can work on to help you plan for a good English conversation.

  • So the first thing that you're going to want to be able to talk about are the things

  • that you like.

  • So you want to be able to use sentences like, “I like reading.”

  • “I like going to the library.”

  • “I like reading a book.”

  • Maybe no one will ask you this question, but you do want to be able to talk about the things

  • that you like doing.

  • Tip number 2, you want to be able to talk about the things that you love.

  • And hopefully you know the difference in English betweenlikeandlove”.

  • So for instance I like eating, but I love pizza.

  • Like is when you enjoy something this much and love is when you enjoy something this

  • much.

  • So you want to be able to talk about the things that you love.

  • So for instance if I was going to a party or if I knew I was going to have an English

  • conversation I would want to be ready to say, “I love pizza.”

  • “I love eating pizza.”

  • “I love taking a nap in the afternoon.”

  • So think of two things that you really, really, really love doing and be ready to talk about

  • them.

  • So that was, “likeand that was, “love”.

  • The third thing that you're going to want to be prepared to talk about are the things

  • that you want to do, or the things that you want.

  • So you're going to want to be able to make sentences and say sentences like, “I want

  • to learn to speak English fluently.”

  • “I want to graduate from University.”

  • You're going to just want to prepare for and be able to say to people the things that

  • you want because it's pretty common when people have a conversation for you to hear

  • questions like, “What do you want to do in the future?” and to hear answers like,

  • “I want to graduate from University.”

  • I'm pretty sure you want to become fluent in English which would be awesome.

  • So that was, “like” “love” “want”.

  • The fourth thing that we're going to talk about is the things that you are able to do,

  • the things that you can do.

  • So it's nice when you're preparing to have an English conversation to also be prepared

  • to talk about the things that you are able to do.

  • For instance you might say, “I can drive a car.”

  • “I can drive a motorcycle.”

  • “I am able to understand English.”

  • These are your competencies.

  • These are the things that you are good at.

  • These are the things that maybe in the past you wanted to do, and you worked really hard

  • at it, and now you are able to do them.

  • I am able to make videos to help people learn English and put them on Youtube.

  • So that was, “like”.

  • That was, “love”.

  • That was, “want”, and that wasto be able toor the things you're able to

  • do.

  • The fifth thing that you are going to want to be ready to talk about are the things that

  • you have to do, the things that you must do.

  • There are many things in life where we have no choice and we must do them.

  • I must go to work every day.

  • I have to go to work every day.

  • I have to eat every day.

  • So you're going to want to be able to talk about some of the things in your life that

  • you have to do every day.

  • Well that was five things but don't leave yet because down there in the description

  • I have put some practice material because all of the five things we talked about can

  • also be put into the negative.

  • So you're going to want to practice how to talk about things you like, but also the

  • things that you don't like.

  • The things that you love, but the things you don't love.

  • The things that you want, but the things that you don't want.

  • The thing that you are able to do, and the things that you aren't able to do.

  • And the things that you have to do, and the things that you don't have to do.

  • So scroll down to the description and have a look there.
