  • Hi! Bob the Canadian here!

  • For this English lesson I thought I would ask you to tell me where you would like me

  • to go and then when I get there teach a little bit of English.

  • So on my Youtube community tab just a couple of minutes ago I posted the question, “Where

  • would like me to go today to help you learn English?”

  • So I got my phone here and we're gonna check for the first posting and we're going to

  • see where we are going to go first.

  • It looks like we're going to go to a nursing home.

  • So let's head out.

  • I got my keys.

  • I got my wallet.

  • I hope I have my wallet.

  • I got my phone and I'm ready to hit the road to help you learn just a little bit more

  • English.

  • So we're at our first stop on this learning English adventure.

  • The request was if I could go to a nursing home.

  • So this is a nursing home or old age home in my local town, and an old age home or nursing

  • home is a place where people go to live when they are older.

  • Usually after they have retired people will live in their own homes, when you're retired,

  • it means that you're not working anymore, but, at a certain point, when someone gets

  • to a certain age they will move into an old age home or a nursing home.

  • Usually they do this when they need a little more care.

  • Often in a nursing home or old age home there will be a nurse that's there every day and

  • there will usually be a doctor that visits once a week.

  • So that was the first thing, let me take a look at my phone and figure out where the

  • next place we're going is.

  • So I've got my phone out.

  • It looks like our next location is,”Maybe go to a financial area with many buildings.”

  • Well, I can't go to a financial area with many buildings, but we can go to a bank.

  • Let's go there next.

  • So we're at our next location.

  • My town doesn't have a big financial district with lots of big buildings, but it does have

  • a bank.

  • So you can see across the road here, this is one of two banks that are in my local town.

  • There's also quite a bit of traffic going by as well isn't there?

  • This bank is one of the local branches of a bigger bank.

  • So the Royal Bank of Canada is a very, very large bank.

  • If we were to go in this bank, which we're not going to do because banks don't like

  • cameras, in the entrance you would see that they have two bank machines, and if you go

  • into the bank itself, past the initial doorway, you will see that there are several tellers

  • working.

  • It looks like the next location that you would like to go to is, “Go to a nice park.”

  • We'll do that next.

  • Let's jump in the van and head over there.

  • So we're at our next location.

  • We're at my town's local park.

  • Now there are a couple of different kinds of parks in Canada.

  • There are parks that towns have where kids can come and play on the playground, and if

  • I spin around, I'm not sure you can see all of the soccer fields, but this park is

  • primarily used for soccer, or football as you might say in your country.

  • So we have parks where you can come and you can play on the playground, where you can

  • come and play soccer, where you can come and play baseball, but we also have a different

  • kind of park where you can go camping.

  • Usually those parks are found way outside of our towns and cities.

  • But, this was the next location.

  • This is a pretty big park.

  • If you're wondering why it's empty it's because it's the middle of the day, so most

  • people are at work right now.

  • If we were to come back tonight there would be lots of people playing soccer here.

  • So I got my phone out and I'm looking for our fourth location.

  • We'll do five total, but this is number four.

  • Many, many people are asking to go to a lake or to go to a beach, so let's go find one

  • of the Great Lakes.

  • It'll either be Lake Ontario or Lake Erie, but I'm not going to tell you until we get

  • there.

  • Let's go!

  • So we're at the lake but I'm a little bit sad today because the pier is closed,

  • so we can't walk out on the pier, and the other thing I'm sad about is, normally you

  • can see the CN Tower in Toronto.

  • We are on the opposite side of the Lake Ontario from Toronto and normally you can see clear

  • across the lake and you can see the CN Tower.

  • And I know some of you wanted to see that, so, it's a little bit foggy, it's a little

  • bit hazy and you can't really see the lake too well, but I will try to hold my camera

  • so that you can have a little bit of a look at Lake Ontario.

  • You can see a lighthouse over there, and in the distance you can see the shoreline.

  • So Lake Ontario is one of the Great Lakes.

  • There are five Great Lakes and Lake Ontario is one of the lakes that is really close to

  • my house.

  • The other lake being Lake Erie.

  • So anyways, there you go, some of you wanted to see Lake Ontario.

  • I think we have one more stop on this trip, and I think it might be Tim Hortons.

  • A lot of you have asked to see a Tim Hortons, so let's go to one.

  • Maybe I'll buy a coffee and maybe I'll buy a donut.

  • So you heard me say, “Tim Hortons”, and you might be wondering what is Tim Hortons.

  • Well, behind me you see a Tim Hortons coffee shop.

  • It is one of the most popular coffee shops in Canada.

  • Almost every town in Canada has a Tim Hortons.

  • They have really good coffee and they have really good donuts.

  • I think we should go in and buy one of each.

  • What do you think?

  • So a lot of people who have visited Canada or used to live in Canada will miss Tim Hortons.

  • So it doesn't surprise me that it is the most requested place that I visit today.

  • Many people who move overseas will miss their Timmies or their Tim Hortons.

  • So let's go in and give them a reminder of what it's like.

  • Yeah, could I get a small decaf coffee, and a chocolate dipah no, oh one sugar please,

  • and a chocolate dip donut.

  • Anything else?

  • No that's everything.

  • $2.87 please.

  • I'm just waiting.

  • Thank you very much.

  • So I got what I needed.

  • It should be fun to eat in a little bit.

  • That door is a little squeaky.

  • So, that was a fun trip.

  • I have my Timmies.

  • I have a donut and I have a coffee.

  • I hope you enjoyed this video.

  • I hope that you learned a little bit of English during this video.

  • I think I visited five places and I may have forgotten to explain enough English for you

  • to have a worthwhile English lesson.

  • But anyways, Bob the Canadian here.

  • Thank you so much for watching this video.

  • I hope that it has helped you learn a little bit more English and I hope you have a great

  • day, and I'm going to spend some time now drinking my Tim Hortons coffee and eating

  • my Tim Hortons donut.
