  • Hello and welcome to The English We Speak with me, Feifei...

  • And me, Roy. Have you seen Rob's new video on social media?

  • Yes, it's amazing! He has charm and style, he just has...

  • Ooof!!!

  • Yes! Oomph! Rob has oomph and charm - not as much as me of course, but he has some!

  • Wow, Roy! For once you actually got the correct word! Oomph!

  • I didn't say oomph, I said ooof!

  • I was complaining because I hurt my back earlier putting your cases in your car for you to go on your workcation.

  • Well, one can never be too prepared when going to the beach.

  • Besides, I need lots of different outfits for when I take pictures.

  • My photos have to have real...

  • Oomph - yes, I get it. Your photos need to have energy and be exciting.

  • Exactly! Well, let's talk more about my 'oomph' right after these examples.

  • The business owner showed real oomph in her presentation when she was pitching the idea.

  • I really like the way Eric speaks - he has real energy and oomph.

  • The dancer showed real oomph in his performance - an energy I haven't seen in a long time!

  • You're listening to The English We Speak from BBC Learning English, and we're talking about the word 'oomph'.

  • If someone or something has 'oomph', they have real energy and excitement.

  • Some people argue that it is important to have real oomph when making presentations.

  • I'm really good at talking to a room full of people, which means I must have real oomph!

  • You're clearly mistaken! I am the one with the oomph! I could sell anything to anyone.

  • Well, if I bought what you were selling, I could resell it for double the price - that's how much oomph I've got!

  • No, Roy. You don't have oomph.

  • You have a puppy-like charm.

  • It's okay to be envious of my oomph!

  • Puppy-like?! I don't chew slippers or chase sticks! I have oomph! Energy! Excitement! People have told me that!

  • And who said that?

  • Rob. But ironically, he said it when he hurt his back helping me with your cases.

  • Well, I think we all know what he really said!

  • Bye, Roy.

  • Bye.
