Well, before I start, let me explain three ancient Egyptians and they built pyramids. These were places where they would put their dead people. They're dead leaders. Now, the thing about the pyramid is at the top is very tiny, but it goes down to a very big bottom. We call it the base. So what happens from small part? We could do a lot of things. That's the idea behind the vocabulary pyramid that we're gonna start with something small. But I can show you how you can use it for many, many things. Okay, let's go to the board. Today's word, boys and girls is vent. Vent is a root. What do I mean? Well, it's like the tree the tree has. Well, let me show you. You have a tree. Do, do, do, do do do do I'm an artist. What can I say? And then underneath you have thes things. It keeps everything together. Vent is a root. It means words air made from this. Okay, that means come, come. Come to me. Come to me. All right. So come vent means come And we're going to work today with vent and show you how it's in many words you've probably seen or some new words you don't know on. That's why we call it a vocabulary pyramid. We're going to start from here on. We're going to build. All right. You learn six new words. You're going to learn some prefixes and events. That's a lot of bang for your buck. Come on, let's go. So story Mystery wanted to go on an adventure, so he decided to go to the local comic book convention. I don't have one, but comics are cool. He knew driving there would be inconvenient. Maybe I could get one hold on. Comic book. Sorry. It's good. Hell Blazer. Really good. Anyway, back to our story on back to the adventure. Okay, so he decided to go to the local comic book convention. He knew driving there would be inconvenient, so he took the subway. As he sat down to people began to argue about the best hero toe to prevent a fight. He intervened, and eventually everyone agreed that that man is the best three movies. Three titles. Okay, Batman is the best. So here's a story. Some of you. Now we're going. I don't understand why you tell me This is very nice, but don't understand. So I'm gonna help you right now. All right? We're gonna look at vent. I told you event means come. Well, it doesn't really help you. And I should tell you vent can also look like this. Veni, I got a little story. I want to share with you for my heart, for my life. You like it? Okay, Vince means come. But I'm sure you're still going. I don't understand how any of this means. Come. Give me five minutes of your life. I will change this for you. You'll never be the same again. Then it means come. But what does adventure mean? Will add this work here toward so it means come towards something. And adventure is something you do have to come towards. You must go to it in a way or you come to it. I've made a gesture that's not good on camera. I won't do that again. So you come towards an adventure. So that's why we say I want an adventure. I want to come to something that will make my life better or more exciting. Yes. Add means towards move and toward means go to basically direction off. There is a video award, but Ward go to all right toward next one. So, Mr we wanted to come to an adventure. Uh, what about this one? So he decided to go to the local comic book convention. Come So we know what this means. Come. What does common mean? Con means together or with so a convention? Because I o n means now is a police work. A place where people come together. Oh, my gosh. So people come together to talk about comic books. This was his adventure. A place where people come together next, one inconvenient, inconvenient. Well, I'm going to stop the story now and make it kind of inconvenient. Explain to you what the word means and a little story from my heart. It's special effects. Love from okay Inconvenient means it's not easy for you to do when something's convenient, inconvenient. It means it's going to be too difficult or make your life harder. Okay, if I have to walk to school and it's going to take me three hours. That's inconvenient. I should take a car and it will take me 20 to 30 minutes. That's better. That's convenient. So inconvenient means to harder, difficult, convenient means easy to do or easy for me to do right. It's convenient for me to get up a 12 o'clock in the day because they're tired. It's inconvenient to get up at 4 a.m. In the morning. Even the car Kakadu Blue doesn't get up that early. So here, inconvenient. So you're going to say, Well, what does inconvenience mean? Con means together. Then he means come so come together. Well, in this case, yeah, the idea. When it's convenient, everything comes together and makes my life easy. It's convenient. It comes together to make it easy for me when it's inconvenience. Here's something interesting in most people know for like inside go inside. They know this, but in English and can also mean opposite. So you have to pay attention, right? There's another variation, like impossible and stuff will come to another time. But in this case, it means opposite, so it means things aren't coming together in an easy way. For me, it's the opposite off convenient. This is not convenient. It's inconvenient. Here's my story. Up until today, I could not spell this word. But because of you invade viewers. I learned how to spell this word. I would always get the e and I incorrectly the incorrect opposite of correct. So I tried not to write this word because it was always inconvenience because someone would correct me. And it was a little embarrassing than today to teach you. I learned that vent or veni must always be e and I. And then I went Oh, snap, It's never EI. It's always i e so easy. This is very convenient. Way to learn. So you look here, veni and so simple Even James could do it. So now I was just saying to mystery I can't spell it wrong anymore. I know. So if you learned anything for me today, learned that veni is an inconvenient because, you know, con, you know, in I've explained them veni e n t. You've just learned the word. Ah, lot of us get wrong and you don't have to think about it. Thank you in the viewers. Okay. So you've helped change my life. Thank you. alright. So inconvenient. So he took the subway. Remember, things come together. It's easier that way. As he sat down to people began to argue, argue means like fights. But it's verbal. Verbal means they're talking fighting right about the best hero to prevent a fight vent means come premiums. Before When you prevent something, you come there before something happens. Oh, if you want to prevent a fire, you won't put oil and fire together, right? If you want to prevent a fight, you go and say guys, Hey, sit down. Have a beer. Have a Coca Cola, have some coke. Whatever. Just relax. Go out of here. I know. Gotta look. They're terrible. Just relax.
