• we'll have five examples from real life English.

• Let's start today with the word FACTOR.

• Factor. As part of the KT cluster, the T is very  weak, it might even sound like a weak D. Factor.

• Factor. As a noun, it means one of the things  that causes something to happen. Poor planning

• in making a judgment or a calculation. We  need to factor time into our calculations.

• on student achievement levels in school. This  is different from things like at-home factors,

• family stress, something like that. That of, of all of the in-school factors

• Here's another example. This is not just a fancy

• device that's supposed to create wow factor. A wow factor. This term means to make something

• surprising and impressive. In marketing  your business, you really want there to

• be a wow factor so that people really want to  buy your products. It could be the packaging,

• or the experience when you walk into the  store, something out of the ordinary

• This is not just a fancy device  that's supposed to create wow factor

• Let's go on to our next example. The supreme court is the deciding factor

• The deciding factor. There might be lots of things  that could tip a decision one way or another, but

• the deciding factor is what causes the decision  to be made despite everything else. For example,

• there are lots of pros and cons  about the house, but for me,

• the deciding factor is that it has a pool. The supreme court is the deciding factor

• Here's our last example. So that all factors in

• Factors in. Used as a verb with 'in', meaning  all that was just stated is considered,

• is included in making a decision. It's what  we think about when we're deciding something

• So that all factors in. Next, the word ISSUE

• It's a noun, it means something that  people are talking about, thinking about,

• something that matters. The manager's speech  addressed a number of important issues.

• You start by talking about  what the issue is, the problem

• What the issue is, the problem. So issue can  often be negative. The problem that people are

• trying to sort out. For example, your friend  calls you and says I can't make it to lunch.

• You can say: oh no, what's  the issue? And she may say:

• my car broke down, or something came  up at work, or my babysitter cancelled

• You start by talking about  what the issue is, the problem

• Let's go on to our next example. It speaks to the broader issue of leadership

• A coin issued. Officially by the mint or  whoever was making coins at that time

• This is a coin issued in his lifetime. Our next word is INVOLVE.

• This word is a little tricky because it has  a dark L. The next sound is V, a consonant,

• so you should not lift your tongue tip  for this L. Invol-- uhl uhl uhl uhl--

• My tongue tip is down, it's the back of the tongue  that's making the dark sound by pressing down and

• back just a little bit. Involve. Involve. As  a verb, it means to have or include someone
