  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Sometimes when you know you're going to have an English conversation, it's a good idea

  • to think about the things that you're going to talk about.

  • One thing that's really easy to talk about is to ask people about some of their favourite

  • things.

  • In this video I'll help you learn some English questions and responses to be able to talk

  • about your favourite things and to be able to ask people about theirs.

  • Hey welcome to this video, if this is your first time here don't forget to click the

  • red subscribe button below, and as you watch the video don't be afraid to leave a comment,

  • or to give me a thumbs up at some point along the way.

  • So.

  • You're going to be having a conversation in English and it's a good idea to plan some

  • things to talk about in advance.

  • One of the easiest things to plan for is to be able to ask people about their favourite

  • things, and be ready to answer with your favourite things.

  • So let's look at a few of them.

  • The first thing you might ask someone is, "What is you favourite colour?" a faster version

  • of that question would be, "What's your favourite colour?"

  • And in reverse someone may ask you the same question.

  • What's your favourite colour?

  • So let's look at what my favourite colour is.

  • Here's how I would answer if you asked me that question.

  • Hey Bob the Canadian, what's your favourite colour?

  • My favourite colour is orange.

  • But we shouldn't just stop there.

  • If you ask someone about their favourite colour, or if someone asks you about it, you should

  • be able to also ask, "Why?" and answer, "Why?"

  • So why is orange my favourite colour?

  • Well orange is my favourite colour because when I was really little in school the teacher

  • was asking everyone what their favourite colour was.

  • And no one was saying orange.

  • And I kinda felt bad.

  • So I said orange was my favourite colour.

  • As you can tell it still is today.

  • If you look at my thumbnails and my Youtube channel, it's all in orange.

  • It's still one of my favourite colours.

  • Another thing when talking about favourites that's very common to ask is, "What's your

  • favourite place?"

  • What's your favourite place to go?

  • And to answer you would say, “Ah my favourite place to go is…”

  • So let's do this, let's ask me Bob the Canadian, what is your favourite place to

  • go?

  • Well my favourite place to go, of all things, is nowhere.

  • My favourite place to go is to go home.

  • So when I'm somewhere else, my favourite place is to be home.

  • Another thing that you can ask people about or someone may ask you about is, “What is

  • your favourite food?”

  • What's your favourite food?

  • If someone was to ask me this question I would say my favourite food is pizza.

  • I have loved pizza for a very, very long time.

  • And if someone was to ask, “Why, Bob the Canadian, is pizza your favourite food?”

  • orWhy's pizza your favourite food?”

  • I would have to say when I was little kid, again, on Friday nights my mom would make

  • homemade pizza.

  • And we would get eat homemade pizza and it was very very very tasty.

  • So for my whole life I have always loved pizza.

  • Another thing that people may ask you about in terms of favourites, or you may ask someone

  • else is, “What's your favourite movie?

  • What's your favourite T.V. show?”

  • So many of us go see movies, many of us have seen movies that we liked, we have seen movies

  • that we didn't like, but sometimes there's movies that are our favourites.

  • If someone was to ask me, “Hey Bob the Canadian, what's your favourite movie?”

  • I would have to say my favourite movie is any of the Lord of the Rings movies.

  • In particular, I like the very first Lord of the Rings movie.

  • So if someone was to ask, “Hey Bob the Canadian, what's your favourite movie?”

  • I would say The Lord of the Rings.

  • Another thing that people might ask in addition to what's your favourite movie is, “Who

  • is your favourite actor or actress?”

  • Who's your favourite actor Bob the Canadian?

  • I would have to say, my favourite actor is Matt Damon.

  • Most movies that have Matt Damon in it are movies that I have liked.

  • In particular I liked all of the Jason Bourne movies, and I really liked the movie The Martian.

  • So Matt Damon is my favourite actor.

  • Why is he my favourite actor?

  • I think because I like action movies.

  • I like movies where there's a really fast good storyline, and usually Matt Damon is

  • in those kinds of movies.

  • The last favourite, the last question that people might ask about your favourites is,

  • Who's your favourite person?”

  • And this is a tricky one, because you have to be careful when you're talking about

  • who your favourite person is.

  • My favourite person in the world is my wife for obvious reasons.

  • I don't think I need to give any, but people might ask things like, “Who's your favourite

  • student?”

  • To which I would not give an answer because I don't think it's a good idea to choose

  • favourites among students.

  • If someone was to ask me, “Which of your children is your favourite?”

  • I would probably just say, I would probably just say, “I love them all equally.”

  • So that's a number of questions about favourites, and a number of answers that I've given

  • about favourites.

  • Your job now is to think about if you had to answer those questions, how would you answer

  • them?
