Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Hi! Bob the Canadian here. A while ago I think in November I asked if people could send me a postcard and a lot of you did. So in this video we're going to do two things. I'm going to look at each postcard and I'm going to help you learn some phrases that you can use to describe what you like about something. So I'll hold up each postcard and then I'll tell you what I like about the postcard. And I'll, of course I'll mention who the postcard is from. Before we get started though I do have to say I was overwhelmed with the number of postcards that I received. It was really fun for me each day to go to the post office and check my post office box to see if I had gotten anymore postcards. So thank you so much to everyone who sent me a postcard and I'll probably do another postcard video in a few months so if you do want to send me a postcard still please do. I'm very interested in learning more about your country. So the first postcard I want to show you is from Taiwan, and this postcard is extra special to me because this is from John and Iris. John and Iris live in Taiwan and it says here Hello Bob, My name is John and I always watch your video. Taiwan is a lovely island. I hope you can come someday for a vacation with your family. The reason I like this one a lot, I like all the postcards, but I like this one a lot because John's wife Iris made this postcard. So this is a handmade postcard. Thank you very much John and Iris. The next postcard I have to hold up a little differently. So this postcard is from Olga. Olga watches my videos a lot and it says here I'm Olga. I'm from Taiwan. Your videos make it easy for me to learn. I want to say thank you. Taiwan has many delicious foods and a Night Market. You should come and visit it someday. Taiwan is a very beautiful place. So thank you very much Olga for this card and hopefully I can come someday and visit Taiwan. Next card, right here, next postcard. This is from Jun and Jun is from Japan and Jun says I'd like to introduce to you the Tokyo Skytree. It's 634 metres tall. It is the tallest tower in the world and the second tallest structure. I enjoy your channel. Thanks. So that's from Jun in Japan. What I like about this card is, I like seeing things that people have built that are really, really cool to look at really really awesome so this Tokyo Skytree is a really neat tower. So I like this card because it shows me a part of the city that I've never seen before. The next postcard. This postcard is from Wendy and it's says I'm Wendy from Taiwan. Taiwan is a big island. There are beautiful beaches and mountains. The picture on the postcard shows our tradition of releasing sky lanterns to pray for luck and I hope you can visit our country someday. From Wendy. So thank you very much Wendy so if you can see here one of the things I like about this postcard is just all of the colour. It's just very vibrant, that's maybe a new word for you, but vibrant, it's a very vibrant postcard. So thank you very much Wendy. Next postcard. This postcard is from Clive and it says I'm from Taiwan, and I like to watch your videos everyday. Thank you so much. So what I like about this postcard is I like water and I like sunshine so this is a really cool picture of a sunset or a sunrise, but thank you very much Clive! Next postcard. It says I'm Alisa, let me hold that back a little bit, from Taiwan. I haven't written a postcard for a very long time. I just want to tell you that Taiwan is very wonderful, there's lots of delicious food and warm and welcoming people. So thank you very much Alisa from Taiwan. That's a very cool postcard. Thank you! You might see there's a theme here. I get a lot of postcards from Taiwan. Here's the next one. This one is from Doreen and it's, it says the night market is one of Taiwan's specialties. I really want to come and see that someday. At the night market you can enjoy a variety of food and you can get a good taste of the food that we eat. Thank you Doreen. That's an awesome postcard as well. Thank you. Here we have a postcard from, I'm having trouble finding the name here, maybe there is no name on here, but it says, I love your videos they really help me a lot. This is a seaside city called Dalian in China and I hope you like it and thank you very much I'm still trying to find the name on this postcard but I don't see it but what I like about this postcard is you can see this large island out in the water and you can see some people I think they're windsurfing. If you see really close up I think those people are windsurfing. Very cool. Thank you! Next one. This is from Jackey in Beijing and it says I'm writing this on December 25th. Happy Holidays! I wish you and your family happiness always. And then we have a picture here I think this is Disney, grand opening of Disneyland in China or Disney, a Disney resort in China. So very cool. Thank you very much Jackey. We have another card here. What I like about this card is it has like a little bear riding a bicycle, but I like it because, it's , it's a really, it's almost, it's very artlike. It's like artwork so it's very cool. Bob, I'm excited to write you because this is my first time that I've been communicating with someone from a foreign land. If I make mistakes in my writing please help to correct it. I'm a student in China. One of the reasons I like China is because people are very, very kind. It has a long history filled with wisdom and a great civilization and also this is from Blossom so there we go postcard from Blossom. My daughter also really liked this postcard Blossom just so you know because it had the bear on the front. Here we have a postcard from Jan, or Jan, who also goes by DarkBlue and it says here, "Dear Bob, greetings from Aachen, Germany. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Still love your videos and thank you for your passion. So I really like old buildings in Europe. In Canada we don't have a lot of old buildings so this a cool picture of and old building in Germany. So it's very cool. Thank you very much Jan, DarkBlue. Next one we have is, this is from Thailand, and it's from, I have to say this name right, I think it's Christie, yes, Christie says, I am from Bangkok, Thailand. I like my country because my country has the nickname, the Land of Smiles or the Land of Smile. And every person here has kindness. Thank you for the clips, video clips that you have made to teach us English. I have learned a lot of English language from your videos. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Thank you very much Christie. That's an awesome postcard from Thailand. So we've seen this one twice. I got this postcard twice. It must be a popular postcard in Taiwan. It says I like the food in Taiwan because it has lots of diversity. Oyster Omelette and all kinds of bubble tea drinks. I haven't had bubble tea yet I should do that soon. And then I'm not sure who this is from (It is from Richard!) because there is a big sticker on the back where they kind of covered it up, maybe I can try and get that off later, but thank you so much for this postcard from Taiwan. And again I like this one because it has a cool reflection right? I don't know if you can see the sky is reflected in the water. Very awesome. So this is from Una, and it says I'm Una. I'm from Taiwan. This postcard is to promote our township for Eco-Travel. So Eco-Travel is when you visit places to try and take of them and it says I wish that you can, I wish that you're able travel to Taiwan someday and visit Heng Chung. So I think what I like about this card is it shows animals here. I really like animals and this, there's a person I don't know if you can see it a little person with a backpack there. So very cool. I like the green colour of the postcard. Here we have a postcard from Germany, awesome, from Berlin and it says hello Bob the Canadian. I really like to watch your videos. It's really educational and sometimes very funny. Well I try! My name is Monika and I live in Berlin. My husband and I visited Toronto in 2016 and we loved the kindness of the Canadian people. So that's from Monika and I love this one cause it's a winter scene. I love snow. I love winter. I love postcards that show winter. So here we have another tallest building postcard. This is from Taiwan as well. This is from Annie, and it says Hi! I'm Annie from Taiwan. I like the enthusiasm of the Taiwanese people, and I like the delicious food. I hope you enjoy this postcard and I look forward to your willingness to make more videos. I've basically, I've loved Canada since I was a child but I've had no chance to travel there. I wish you happiness and health! And that's from Annie or Chia-Yi. So thank you very much Annie for that postcard. What I like about this postcard is I like the deep rich blue sky, er purple sky and I like pictures of city skylines. So we would call this a skyline at night. So that's a really cool, really cool look. We have this super colourful postcard from Taiwan. This is from Judy and it says here Hi Bob I'm Judy. I'm from Taiwan. I love Taiwan because the weather is warm and we have many delicious fruits. You know Bob the Canadian doesn't eat enough fruit. I should maybe come to Taiwan someday and eat more fruit. This postcard photo is about a religious festival and it celebrates God's birthday. It's very interesting. Thank you for your channel. I enjoy learning English with you very much. So you can see, what I like about this is you can see people who are dressed up in traditional clothing. Very colourful clothing, and it looks like they're having a lot of fun at their religious festival. So thank you very much Judy for that postcard. Last one folks! This is from, let me see if I can find the name, sometimes it's hard to find the name, Vicky! Thank you Vicky! Greetings from Taiwan. It's usually hot and wet here which is the opposite of Canada where it's usually dry and cold. I like our multicultural aspect of our country and our very nice environment. On the cover of the postcard is the traditional lantern festival where we write down our wishes for the coming New Year on a sky lantern. So you can see here the sky lanterns are being sent off into the sky. So that's it for postcards. I have two more things to show you though. I got two Christmas cards. So here's a Christmas card. It's a tradition in North America to send Christmas cards to family, so this is from Wendy and it just says. My name is Wendy. I came from China but my family and I moved to B.C. Canada, that's British Columbia, about four years ago and right now we are living in Canada. There are a lot of kind and funny people here just like you! Every day I look forward to watching your videos. So thank you very much Wendy. That's a beautiful Christmas card. Says Season's Greetings! And then I have one more Christmas card that I got right here. So you can see this one, this one's kind of sparkly. I'm not sure if you can see that on the front and this is from Silvana and it says Bob I just want to let you now thank you for your videos and I wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2019. And this is from Silvana and Silvana actually lives in Montreal, Canada. Anyways, that was super fun, it was so fun to get postcards. I'm sure I will still get a few more over the next few weeks. Again in about three or four months I will ask again for postcards. I'll probably ask something more about your country. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you want to send me a postcard just scroll down in the description of every video is my post office box. So if you want to send me a postcard please do. It's really fun for my wife and kids and I to, to kind of go check the mailbox and to find postcards or letters from people in other countries. So thank you very much. I hope you have a great week ahead of you and I'll see you next week in the next video. Bob the Canadian here. Learn English with Bob the Canadian. See you next week.
