Mysterious Facebook.
All right.
S o.
Today we're going to cover kind of two groups.
I made today's lesson into two groups to explain before we begin.
So the top of the board in today's lesson the top of the board is recommendations, information.
So I'm going to cover how to ask for recommendations and advice, how to give, and then we'll cover tips at the end.
So the top of the board today is recommendations up here.
The bottom of the board is advice.
So there are these two kind of groups of information for today's lesson.
We're going to cover.
Okey dokey.
Facebook.
Where's your chat, man?
Come on.
Facebook.
Okay, Sorry if you're sending messages on Facebook.
Sorry.
And something very mysterious is happening.
And we cannot see your comments yet.
I will try to check on my Facebook and see if things were working there.
Anyway.
I'm going to get started.
Uh oh, yeah, I have I can see comments here.
For some reason, it's mysterious.
I will check comments down here on Facebook.
Hello, everyone of Facebook.
Benjamin and Tony and Tin.
GM and Guadalupe.
Hello.
I see you now.
For some reason, I can't see it on the screen.
Mysterious.
But I see you.
Hi, Facebook.
Welcome.
Okay, let's get started with the first part for today's lesson.
So I'm going to cover this part of the board first.
There we are.
Hi.
I'm gonna cover this part of aboard first.
I'm going to cover how to ask for recommendations and how to ask for advice.
Let's begin here.
Let's start with recommendations.
So, a recommendation?
What is a recommendation?
A recommendation?
First.
This is a noun.
Uh, it's when you want something.
You want someone's opinion about something?
Like a restaurant?
A book of movie.
You're interested in something?
You're looking for something and maybe another person has information about it.
You want that information?
What did they think is good?
How do you ask for a recommendation?
So couple patterns similar similar patterns, but some things to think about.
Do you have any recommendations?
Four Topic.
Do you have any recommendations for topic at Native Speed?
This sounds like Do you have any recommendations for something so quite quick?
Do you have any recommendations for something?
So this part do you have becomes very short.
So not do you have, but do you have?
Do you have?
Do you have any recommendations for And in my accent, this four sounds like fur and very fast Speech.
A couple of other points here.
One recommendations in this pattern should be plural.
Do you have any recommendations?
So sometimes I hear learners remove or like they forget this s sound.
Do you have any recommendations?
Four thing.
Let's look at some examples of this.
Do you have any recommendations for restaurants or do you have any recommendations for tours in London?
So a native speed.
This sounds like you have any recommendations for restaurants, or do you have any recommendations for tours in London?
So when you choose your your topic, the thing you want, the recommendation for ah point to keep in mind it's really hard.
Sorry.
If you can't see on your screen, I will read this point.
This says, if the topic is accountable known.
For example, restaurants or tours use the plural form of the known so restaurants.
So not restaurant but restaurants or tours, not tour.
So please use the plural form.
If the noun is accountable, mount.
If it's an uncountable mount, you don't need to worry, but please use the plural form in this pattern.
Do you have any recommendations?
Four.
Plural now is what you should use in this pattern.
So please keep this in mind then.
Another very common pattern.
Is this one very, very similar to this, But there are a couple of small points to keep in mind.
First we have the same.
Do you have any?
Which is fine.
Just as I talked about here, that kind of quick.
Do you have any?
Do you have any pronunciation?
But the thing that's different here is that your topic comes before the word recommendations, and in this pattern, you should use the singular form of your now, not the plural form, so you can put your topic before or after recommendations.
Oh, I just lost a screen.
Uh, you can put your topic before recommendations, and it can be singular, or you can put your topic after recommendations with four, but it should be plural.
So please keep this in mind some examples of this.
Do you have any horror movie recommendations?
Horror movie records?
A horror movie means scary, really?
So do you have any horror movie recommendations in this pattern?
My topic.
The thing I want the recommendation for comes before recommendations.
Yeah, so recommendations.
Plural form here yet?
Or movie, however, is singular.
Horror movie recommendations, horror movies recommendations is incorrect.
You cannot use that.
Another example.
Do you have any book recommendations?
Book is in the singular.
For so again you could use thes with this pattern.
Also, they mean the same thing.
It's up to you.
There's no difference in meaning here.
You could say, Do you have any recommendations for horror movies?
Correct or do you have any recommendations?
Were books correct?
So just keep in mind the singular plural thing.
Some examples Air coming in.
Uh, do you have any recommendations for an island tour?
Ah, honey.
Flower gifts, deliveries.
A long name, Please don't forget.
Do you have any recommendations for?
So don't forget, this s at the end of your recommendations there.
Uh, pasta Kim says, Do you have any burger joint recommendations?
So So two of you so far, you're s You are missing the s at the end of your recommendation recommendations.
Don't forget that, uh, show GLA says, Do you have any recommendations for today's topic?
Uh, yeah, you could say that, but like, it's kind of What exactly are you asking about?
That part's not clear.
Grammatically correct.
Uh, jury says, do you have any recommendations for my trip to your country?
That's what I would say for my trip to your country.
Okay.
Uh, it's okay.
My trick.
Your phone for F b.
Cool.
Copy.
So Facebook comments.
Sorry, Facebook.
There's some interesting issues here.
I will.
I'm looking at your comments.
I have to check it on my on my phone.
Uh, Facebook.
I don't see your examples yet What exactly is recommendation?
So recommendation is someone else's suggestion someone else's suggestion for something that they want?
Uh, Boeri says.
Does she have?
So you can change the subject from Do you have to?
Does he or does she have any coffee recommendations?
Is good.
Okay, good.
Let's continue then.
To part two.
Part two is about advice.
So we talked about how to ask for recommendations.
Now let's talk about how to ask for advice.
This I made this Ah, very, very open pattern so that you can build your own questions with this.
Okay, so to make this advice pattern, let's use a W H question when I say w h question.
I mean, who, what, where?
When?
Why, How those questions?
So those information gathering questions?
W wait.
Question.
Do you think I should verb or verb phrase?
This is a very basic advice pattern.
Let's take a look at some examples of how to build questions with this pattern.
First, I need to choose a W H question to start.
So what?
What do you think I should say?
Here's my verb say to my boss.
So I've made a verb phrase here.
Depending on the situation may be just a verb is OK.
Your idea is complete with just the verb.
But say to my boss, what do you think I should say to my boss?
So you're looking for advice in a challenging work situation?
What do you think I should say to my boss?
So end this with the verb phrase.
This part right here.
Do you think I should?
This right here shows you are asking for advice.
Uh, no questions.
Okay, so let's go to the other example.
Where?
Where do you think I should go for my date?
Where do you think I should go?
For my date?
So my w h question is where, in this case again asking advice.
Here.
Where do you think I should verb phrase Go for my date.
So this is a very, very open advice question.
I will look for your advice.
Examples in the chat.
Hello, everybody.
Lots of people saying hello.
Uh, example.
Some examples for recommendations.
Air coming.
Do you have any recommendations for my trip to Dubai?
Do you have new food recommendations?
Good.
Send me your advice.
Examples to I will try to check live.
Okay, for now, let's go to Pattern to, though, pattern to for advice.
Today, eyes a W H question starts with a W H question again.
So who, what?
Where?
When?
Why, Plus, would you plus verb verb phrase so in this one were using wood.
So this, well, let's look at the examples first so you can get an idea 1st 1 which can did it, which can did it.
So here I am using which, using of a series of choices, which one or which person candidate means like a person trying to get a position like a candidate for president or a candidate for a job, Someone who wants to be in a position.
Which candidate would you choose for the position?
So hear, my Vered is choose and I've got you, in this case, some extra information.
Which candidate would you choose?
So thief feeling with this kind of sentence is, if you were in charge of the decision, what would you do?
So it's asking about that person's thoughts about their actions.
What would you do?
What would you choose?
So the idea here is also like maybe that person is not in charge.
but you want to learn their thoughts about it.
What would you do?
Which candidate would you choose?
Another example.
The very, very helpful and very general.
What would you do so again?
My w h question here is what would you do?
So this one you can use in lots of different situations to get advice.
If you have a challenging situation at your office or something difficult in your friendship or relationship, you can ask for advice with what would you do?
What would you do?
Some examples Air coming in.
Facebook says, Where do you think I should go in the wintertime?
Nice one from Anya.
Tell.
Oh, where do you think I should go?
In the wintertime?
Perfect example.
Nice.
Uh, some other ones.
Hudson says which do you think I should study tomorrow?
English or Spanish?
Nice.
Nice one.
Okay.
Other examples.
I don't see others on Facebook.
Gets a good to YouTube.
Ah, where should I go to enjoy local food?
Nice.
One kidding.
That one sounds good.
Can I make the sentence without a do verb?
What?
You think I should touch students?
No.
You need to include Do here.
So what do you think I should or what?
Uh, what do you are?
What would you?
Barbara?
This pattern?
Yeah.
What do you think you need to use do here?
Yeah, can keep that there.
L've been says.
Where do you think I should travel this summer?
Nice examples.
Nice examples.
Uh, Roseanna, what do you think I should do?
What do you think I should do to be better in English?
That will fix your sentence.
What do you think I should do to be better in English?
Uh, shrug.
Struggle against?
Sorry.
Which candidate would you choose for the presidential election?
That's one, uh, other examples.
Look, I don't see any Andres book.
Okay, Let's see.
Whoa times going quick.
Let's take a break.
So this is our advice as our advice and recommendations, how to ask for advice and ask for recommendations here.
We're going to cover the response next, but we're going to take a short break, so I'll share with you a couple of other things I did not share with you earlier, but I'm if you missed it.
Have you missed it at any point in the past?
Other is free.
Whoa.
Stuff available for you from the link below the video if you're watching on YouTube or above the video, if you're watching on Facebook, these are vocabulary and phrase sheets that you can download saved to your phone.
Print out whatever this one's about.
Food on the back is expressions for ordering at a restaurant.
So it's vocabulary words how to give compliments, stuff like that.
You can totally use this one right here.
This pattern right here is perfect for restaurants.
Do you have any recommendations?
Do you have any recommendations?
Is good toe ask of the staff at the restaurant when you don't know what to order?
So this is a really good one for today's lesson.
Some other ones.
This one I've shown several times the business English one and on the back are expressions for business meetings.
You can check this out.
These are other good down here.
The advice patterns I introduced are good to use in work situations, so check these all out.
You can find them all for free.
Think below the video or above the video you're watching on Instagram.
Sorry, I cannot see your comments live.
Please check in.
Please check Facebook or YouTube.
Hello, Giovanni.
One of our members was in the chat to Welcome.
Okay, Nog, Let's go to Part two for today.
Parts do is about responding, responding to people's questions.
Um, so if you have not already, please make sure to like and share the video hit the thumbs up so that other people confined today's lesson.
We appreciate that, as always, let's continue then to part two part to giving recommendations and giving advice.
So let's look at some patterns you can use to give recommendations.
Check out, check out, check out something.
So let's say, uh, someone said, Do you have any recommendations for new TV show?
You might say, Check out the good place or check out the man DeLorean or check out.
Sorry, is looking at you.
Check out something.
Check out noun phrase.
Checkout recommendation.
This is a casual way to say you should watch her.
I think you should watch.
Is casual and direct.
Check out this thing.
Another one.
Try try.
This one is natural.
Try something for activities.
Uh, if you if you want to suggest like a sport like oh, try hacking or try bicycling or try playing a sport bubble butt this one is natural for activities you can also, you can also use just regular noun phrases with this.
Like try this TV show or try this artist something like that.
That's also fine.
The difference between try and check out try sounds a little less direct.
It's like test this out.
Maybe you'll like that.
Try this thing.
This is good.
Maybe for food as well.
Like Oh, try this dish.
It's good.
Something like that is quite natural in this case.
Next one I want to focus on here is Have you heard of Have you heard of something?
I heard?
I hear a lot of learners use the pattern.
Do you know?
Do you know?
So lots of people will say for example, do you know so she or do you know this country?
So please, more naturally you should use.
Have you heard of?
Have you heard of this thing?
Have you heard of sushi?
The answer is yes, for most people.
Have you heard of this thing?
So this sounds more natural to native speakers than do you go?
We use Do you know for facts or more naturally, like did you know when we're introducing new information we use, Do you know for, like, a personal relationships, like, Do you know that guy?
That sounds natural When you're talking about life experience, like when you're giving a recommendation, it is much more natural to use.
Have you heard of this thing?
Have you heard of?
Why?
Don't keep much of a good place.
Have you heard of the man DeLorean?
For the record of, uh, altered carbon?
That's a weird show.
I watched a while back.
Yeah.
Have you heard of this thing?
Have you heard of the Corona Bar?
Says Christopher.
Yes.
Okay.
On Facebook.
Sorry.
I can't see your comments Except on my phone today for some reason.
Hi, everybody.
Uh, okay.
Uh, so have you heard of is good.
One more.
You could go to a place you could.
So I've got go to here.
I made this just to give you a pattern to use for, like, restaurants or for travel recommendations.
So you can, of course, use this to talk about other actions.
You could Verb is fine.
You can change.
Go to another verb.
You could go to that restaurant.
You could go to that country.
You could go to this cafe so you can use this to give a recommendation for some place to visit.
Also, add details.
So when someone asks you for a recommendation, you can follow up by saying, Oh, check out this TV show and then give some details.
Why do you recommend that TV show?
Why do you recommend that thing?
That restaurant, because the desert there is great or the story is so good or the effects are amazing.
Whatever you want to like, whatever your opinion is, share some details.
Why are you recommending that thing in particular?
Give some small details.
It's nice to do these air.
Very simple, but very natural to you.
So try to include something like this.
Oh, lookie.
I don't see any questions.
So let's continue to advice giving advice.
When someone asks for advice, you can give it with a simple I think pattern.
That's fine.
I think you should verb.
I think you should vert like I think you should go to a nice casual restaurant for your date.
I have, I think, in parentheses here because you don't have to include it.
It's very natural to drop, I think when it's clear from the conversation.
You're just sharing your opinion so you can say, Oh, you should go to a nice but casual restaurant.
Or you should tell your boss you're interested in management.
The key here is this.
You should you should.
This is a very basic, easy to remember pattern for giving advice.
And then what needs to follow is just a verb in the infinitive form.
You should tell you should go.
You should see.
You should watch.
You should listen.
Whatever your verb that follows Should should just be in the infinitive form.
So infinitive for means, like the basic dictionary form.
Yeah.
Okay.
Examples.
Have you heard our teacher's story of us?
Kenneth on Facebook.
Have you heard this?
Have you heard that?
Don't forget this D Heard of this thing?
Okay, uh, one more.
I wanted to introduce this if I were you.
Pattern.
If I were you, I would verb if I were you, I would never For example, if I were you, I would work on building new skills.
So giving advice again or I would make a monthly budget for myself.
So someone asking for advice about money their friend might give them this advice again.
This if I were you, is optional.
You can remove.
It is totally fine if I were you.
And yet this part pronunciation wise native speakers Do not say if I were you.
You say if I were you, if I were you Sounds like that.
Okay, Time's going quick.
So I will wrap up in just a minute with some important tips over here.
Uh, I guess I'll take one more quick break to show you a couple more things.
Uh, two down.
Look, check it out.
Yeah.
Okay.
Here we go.
I'll show you these.
Are you gonna zoom in on me again?
Oh, gosh.
Okay.
Thes are three things that you can download, uh, to improve your vocabulary to study vocabulary points.
I showed you some earlier.
Uh, this one is for your city.
Uh, for those of you who want to practice directions, check this one out.
You should check out.
It's speedy.
A gash.
So cheesy.
It's another one.
Emergency expressions.
If you need to practice some of these, it's good.
There's some key vocabulary for, like, natural disasters on the back.
Uh, for those of you with pets, you might check this one out.
Lots and lots of different topics.
So check these all out.
You can find them all for free from the lake below the video on YouTube or above the video on Facebook on instagram.
Check YouTube or Facebook.
Can't see your comments.
Sorry.
Do you have any PDF recommendations?
Yes, the ones I just showed you.
Okay, let's go to the last part for today's lesson.
Uh, I don't see any questions on Facebook, so I'm going to continue.
Let's go to the last part now for today, and if you have not already, please make sure to like and share this video so other people can find it.
I want to talk about a few tips.
These air very quick, short tips that I think will help you when you're using these patterns first, let's talk about recommendation patterns when you are asking for a recommendation, as we talked about at the beginning of today's lesson.
When you're asking for a recommendation, give information about your preferences so your preferences means what you like and what you dislike.
If you don't know how to do that, please check last week's live stream you can review that.
So, for example, I like or I don't like this sort of thing or I'm looking for something lovable.
So when you asked for a recommendation, it's good to give the other person some information that if you're looking for a desert recommendation, you might say, Do you have any recommendations for desserts?
I don't like things that are super sugary.
So give some information about your likes and dislikes.
Don't just say, Do you have any recommendations that makes it kind of challenging for the person to give you something that suited to you?
Then when you give your recommendation in this part here, it's very natural to use command form.
So the command form, for example, it's like try or go or do so you don't have to use you should.
But here you can just use the command form of over.
You can also use expressions like half to or got to sew.
Those make your recommendations stronger.
So instead of try this desert, you can say you have to try this desert.
It's so good, so using have to or got to will elevate or we'll make your recommendations stronger.
A little more.
Um, like Uh uh.
There'll be more emphasis on your recommendation.
So those air two points for your recommendations.
Asking in giving last hear about advice?
Uh, two points about advice.
When I introduced this pattern, I think you should bubble block lots.
People ask, like, can I use could or would hear.
The answer is you can use could but remove.
I think from this one, like there are some cases where you can use I think you could, but when you use, I could patterns it makes your, uh it makes the request or the the idea it makes the recommendation the advice softer.
So, for example, uh, you could go to a nice casual restaurant, So if you use you should go, it's stronger.
If you say you could go to a nice restaurant, it's just saying it is possible to do that thing.
So using could is okay.
I would suggest you remove.
I think from those sentences.
Please.
No, you cannot use.
Would you cannot just use wood in place of should in this sentence.
Please keep this in mind.
Last point.
Less tip in this pattern in this If I were you pattern lots of people ask what's the difference between if I were?
And if I waas in these patterns, please use If I were native speakers tend to use if I was and if I were interchangeably most of the time there's no communication problem.
But the difference if I waas is used to describe a possible past situation.
So what possible past situation or condition if I were you describes an unreal situation which is now like I cannot be you.
That's not really if I was described the past situation.
So like for example, talking to your neighbor, you might say if I was noisy last night.
I apologize.
I have you had a big party.
You don't know if you were noisy at the party but you want to express that to your neighbor If I was a noisy, I apologize.
Not if I were noisy.
I waas So please keep this point in mind if I were in these cases if I were you Oh, ok.
Those air All my points.
Okay.
I'm looking for questions from you.
I don't see any questions on YouTube on Facebook.
I do not see any questions there.
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm.
Mmm.
OK, so Oh, also I'm after I've picked great.
OK?
Eso I'll I will wrap it up there.
Ah, but I hope that this was helpful for you for recommendations, advice giving, asking.
I hope you got some patterns that you can use some things to review.
So we'll finish their, uh, we'll be back next week.
Uh, next week's topic is how to express problems.
Yes, a good one, eh?
So I'm going to give you some expressions you can use to talk about challenges and to tell.
People like to explain what's wrong to somebody which is difficult.
I know.
