  • In this English lesson, I wanted to help you learn the English phrase, "a touch of class".

  • When you do something with a touch of class, it means you do something in a way that makes it cooler than normal.

  • Let's think about... maybe you're making a dinner for someone special in your life.

  • And you think to yourself, "If I put some candles on the table for this romantic dinner, it will add a touch of class."

  • So when you add a touch of class to something, it means you add something that makes it a little more special than it normally would be.

  • I thought when I bought these sunglasses that, even though they were only a dollar, they add a touch of class to how I look in my videos.

  • And it's nice to have them on a sunny day, but they also add a touch of class.

  • The second phrase I wanted to teach you today is the phrase "world class".

  • When something is world class, it means it's super, super good.

  • Or if someone is world class, it means they're super, super good.

  • Think about your favorite athlete; they are probably a world class athlete.

  • There are hockey players in Canada that could play on any hockey team in the world because they are world class athletes; they're some of the best in the world.

  • There's some restaurants in Toronto that are world class restaurants.

  • They serve food that's just really, really good, and people really, really like it, and it's some of the best food in the world.

  • So, to review:

  • When you do something with a touch of class, you do it in a way where it's just a little extra special.

  • Or when you add something to something, you can add a touch of class by adding things like nice candles for a romantic dinner.

  • And if something is world class or if someone is world class, they are, like, the best in their field.

  • But, hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video.

  • This comment is in my pocket somewhere, and it is from Sherly.

  • And Sherly says, "I always love the last part of the video, where teacher Bob takes us on a tour of his well-organized farm."

  • And my response was, "You'll be surprised, then, in the next video, as I'll be walking around my town."

  • So let's do that for a bit.

  • Let's walk around my town; I thought that I should do some of these videos on location.

  • In English, when you do something on location, it means you do it, like, out in the town or out somewhere.

  • Normally, I do my videos on location on my farm, but I thought it would be fun to come downtown and shoot the video here.

  • I should walk this way, actually, sorry for spinning you around like that; I hope you didn't get too dizzy.

  • Let's walk a little bit down the sidewalk here.

  • This is a small town, so I'm not too worried about someone taking my tripodalthough that could happen, but I doubt that it will.

  • Um, I like the little town that I live close to.

  • I'll be honest, I haven't gotten out here much because of the pandemic, but it's a nice quaint little town.

  • There aren't that many people here.

  • In fact, we only have about two fast food restaurants, um, and a few pharmacies.

  • We don't have a hospital.

  • The cityor the townisn't big enough for that.

  • But it has all of the things that you would need, uh, if you wanted to get things.

  • There's a grocery store, um, like I said, there's a few fast food restaurants⏤I should check my time here.

  • Oh, I can talk for 45 more seconds, that's good.

  • There's a place right over there where you can go if you need to renew your license.

  • If you need to go to the doctoreven though there's not a hospital, there is a medical center.

  • A medical center is a place where you can go and see a doctor.

  • And if it's really serious, they'll send you to a hospital.

  • But it's a nice little town⏤I'll turn around once again so you can see the intersection behind me as I finish off this video.

  • Anyways, thanks for watching.

  • I should wrap this up; I only have 10 seconds left.

  • Thanks for watching; I hope you enjoyed a little bit of a tour of my town.

  • I'll probably do one video a week out here.

  • I'll see you in a couple (of) days with another short English lesson. Bye.
