Hello everyone and welcome back to English with Lucy
Before we get started, I'm sorry but my neighbour has decided to have
some sort of Monday afternoon party in their flat
and if you hear any music, it's not me it's them
Little bit awkward, but I'm too British to say anything
so I'm just going to battle on
Today I've got a very short but very useful little video for you
It's all about adjectives that end in -ing
and adjectives that end in ed
and why they're different
and when we use each one
I hear so many people using these adjectives incorrectly
so....I'm here to help you!
Now, I like to believe that my lessons here on my Youtube channel
will help you with your English really rather a lot
however if you want to take your English speaking to the next level
you're going to need to start talking with natives
Now I know that getting a private tutor or finding native people in your area
isn't possible for everyone
So I'm working with a fantastic company called italki
And they have over 4000 online teachers for all languages
you can find fantastic qualified teachers
as well as natives that are ready to have conversations with you
and you'll end up paying much less that you would in a normal, private, face-to-face lesson
So if you log on to italki using the link that's in the description box
your account will be credited with 100 italki credits which is around $10
ummm...as soon as you make your first purchase
so...check that out and let me know how your experience is
Now I'm going to give you 2 phrases
The first one: I am boring
and the second one: I am bored
What do they mean and why are they different?
So adjectives that end in ed describe emotions
They tell us how someone feels about something
OK, so I feel tired...I'm going to go to bed
Or I was bored in the maths lesson...I almost fell asleep
Adjectives ending in ing describe the thing that causes the emotion
So a boring maths lesson makes you feel bored
The maths lesson is what causes you to feel bored
so the maths lesson is boring
So you could say...
I could watch Lucy's videos for hours because they are so interesting.
This means that you are interested by my videos
My videos interest you
or I could say that the food was disgusting
I was disgusted by the food
Now I'm going to give you some more adjectives that can be used in both the ED form and the ING form
So the first one: amused, amusing
Ok...The film was so amusing. it made me really laugh.
