I'm very happy, yeah! I just... every time... ok.
Hi, everybody, my name is Alisha.
Welcome back to Top Words! Today we're
going to be talking about happy words.
Very exciting! so let's go!
the first word is happy
as you might have guessed
happ is a happy word, when you
feel good, when you feel positive, when
you are excited, you can say I'm happy!
I was so happy to see my friend the other day.
What makes me happy? Food. I'm happy right now.
when you feel happy, perhaps you also feel energetic, you have
that sort of, like, uplifting feeling.
This chair is squeaking every time I move up.
I don't really describe my
friends or people as energetic, i might
say a dog or a cat is energetic, like, wow!
Your dog is so energetic,
what is she doing? She's running
everywhere, is she okay? Maybe i would say
about myself, I'm very energetic today, if
I've had a lot of coffee, like now.
you can use this to describe
people, a situation, a food, anything that
you think is good, is positive, is cool, is
groovy, is spectacular, is fantastic, I'm
sure we're going to talk about some of
these other words later so i should stop saying them.
To like
something that you are interested in, something that you
think is great, is good, is cool, is
You can like anything, whatever it is,
just say "I like..."
followed by a noun phrase, that's how you
can share your hobbies, the things that
make you happy. In a question form, what
do you like? What do you like to do? I
like eating food, I like cooking food,
recently I like tofu.
To love
you can use it for very close friends, maybe in your language
using the word love has
a very very strong meaning, but in
English we tend to be a little more
casual about that. If you say to your,
like, your romantic partner, I love you.
That is a very deep meaning, you can say
it to your friends though,
like, so and so, so I love you.
That's fine, that's fine, too. We use "love"
and "like" to talk about how much we enjoy
something. If you say I love watching
movies, it sounds like it's maybe one of
your favorite activities, it's one of
your hobbies, It's something that you really
really enjoy. So think about that when
you choose like or love. I love cooking,
or I love, let's see, trying new beer.
The next word is satisfied,
usually we use the word satisfied after
something good has happened to us.
So for example, if you go out to a
restaurant, and you have a nice meal, you
really enjoy the food, afterwards you can
say oh I'm satisfied, that was really
if you've provided a service to somebody,
you can say are you satisfied?
If you feel very good about an
accomplishment, or someone else has
accomplished something and they're happy
about it,
we use the word proud to describe that
feeling. So maybe I studied for a few
months and I passed a test that was
really difficult for me, I feel so proud.
Or let's see, my students have been
studying for a few years and their
conversation skills have improved so
much that we can have fun conversations
together, I'm really proud of them.
Yeah, if you're proud you can say I'm proud.
Though be careful if you say I'm so
proud, I'm so proud of myself, I'm so
proud of myself all the time, you might
sound self-centered.
The next word is excited, this is
usually before you do something that
you're very interested in, that you're
very happy about, like, I'm going to see a
new movie today, I'm so excited. Or I'm
going to try a new restaurant, I'm so
excited. It's to describe that, maybe, that
kind of upward
"yeah" feeling that you have before
you do something you're very interested in.
I'm excited! You can use this in the past
tense too, like, I was so excited to see
that movie last week, it was great!
What was the last thing I was excited
about? Coming here! I'm so excited to cook
food today. Oh my god!
something that makes you laugh is funny, I laugh a
lot, i think way too many things are
funny. This is true, my favorite people are
funny people.
My friend told me a really funny joke last week.
I hope I get to see my friends this weekend.
I hope the food that I cook later
is going to be delicious.
i hope that i can move to a new
apartment next year. I hope that my mom
has a great birthday next month.
Happy birthday, mom, in advance! This might be around your birthday.
So hope is a sense that
things are going to improve, that things
are somehow going to be
better than they are now, wanting
improvement, believing in improvement in
the future is hope. Those are ten happy
word I hope that you use them regularly,
and in particular the difference between
"good" and "great", and "like" and "love" can
really help you to distinguish how much
you appreciate something, or maybe help
you to explain your feelings more clearly.
