Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Hi, guys!! My name is Tony And this is the first of a series of videos that I am going to make to help you learn English We are going to start with 4 main areas in English we have “habit”; something you do regularly we have “now”; something you are doing now We have “future” something you are going to do and we have “past” Let me be clear with these 4 areas ONLY you can have a simple conversation so please concentrate, focus and let's go OK, here are some very basic rules to English No. 1 - always start with a person “I”, “you”, “we”, “they”, “he”, “she” No. 2 - VERB the verb in English is very, very important the verb changes with each tense focus on the verb, understand the tense, you'll be able to speak English,. No.3 during this video, always answer with full grammar For example, “do you like pizza?” “yes” “do you like pizza?” “yes, I do” “What pizza do you like?” “Meat pizza” “What pizza do you like?” “I like meat pizzas” OK? Full grammar! So, like I said 4 tenses. HABIT, NOW, FUTURE, PAST Today, we are going to focus on the habit, alright? something you do regularly every tense in English has a “keyword” that is in the question, okay? with “habit” that keyword is “DO” and “DOES” That keyword is going to be IN the question, so listen for the keyword think “Ah, “habit” and then respond the keyword is your key The keyword, “DO” or “DOES” will appear at the beginning of the question so listen to the beginning of the question For example, “Do you like pizza?” “DO”!!!!!!! “DO you like pizza?” “What pizza DO you like?” That “DO” is telling you, “HABIT! ANSWER WITH HABIT!” Okay listen for the keyword…. easy when you hear the habit keyword please follow this grammar in order to reply first of all, you need a person “I”, “you”, “we”, “they”,“he”, “she” Then you need a verb, Simple verb, it doesn't really change no “ING”, no “…ED” , simple verb, present tense then you need an object and then you sometimes need a time, okay? but most importantly “person” + “verb” you can watch this video at home you can listen to this video as you're doing your laundry or as you're working, as you're driving listen to this video remember “person” “verb” “object” “time” and respond this is about giving you practice using English I'm going to give you 5 seconds to answer each question this may seem a bit short for some of you but watch the video many, many times… get quicker, and five seconds is more than enough If you're watching with subtitles at the bottom, great!
