31 Days of Learning English – DAY 18 – improve your English – LIES / BODY GESTURES – 18th October


there it is a live view right now
looking out the window and I have some good news it isn’t raining is not nice
welcome today eighteen of 31 days of learning English during October 2019 what’s up YouTube I can’t believe I just
said that in the 13 years that I’ve been doing this on YouTube
I have never started any of my videos or any of my live streams with what’s up
YouTube I do apologise for that I am very sorry
after this live stream has finished I will go into the garden and I will beat
myself over the head with a piece of wood I do apologize for that hi
everybody yes that’s what I should be saying hi
everybody this is mr. Duncan in England how are you today
are you okay I hope so are you happy well are you happy I think actually you
should be very happy today why I will tell you why because it’s Friday it is Friday yes the weekend is just
around a corner I know many people get very excited when Friday arrives for
some people it is a sacred day for the people it is a day when the weekend
approaches in fact we often think of Friday we often think of this particular
day as being the weekend so it is technically the end of the week so when
you think about it this actually is the weekend it is the end of the week so I
hope you’re okay yes we have made it through another week on planet Earth
without blowing it up isn’t that amazing I’m really happy
about that I don’t know about you so here we go it’s mr. duncan by the way
that’s my name for those wondering what I’m doing well I’m here every day during
October doing a series of live lessons yes the thing you are watching at the
moment is live and I will be with you every day I can’t believe I am here
every day during October so that’s the reason why my beautiful face is now on
your screen right here’s an interesting word I want to kick things off with an
interesting word how about this word now this doesn’t look like a real word but
in fact it is a real word and can I tell you something this is a word that I love
for various reasons because it doesn’t look like a word it looks like a mixture
of letters that have just been written out randomly but it isn’t it’s a real
word and the word is Pyrrhic so this particular word is Pyrrhic and it is an
adjective so it describes something so we use the word Pyrrhic
a battle that was won but at a great cost to have been worthwhile for the
victor so when we talk about Pyrrhic we are saying that a battle took place it
was a battle that was won unfortunately the price that was paid
maybe there were many casualties or deaths made the whole war and also the
victory earn worthwhile or not worthwhile I like this word by the way
worthwhile so there is an interesting word as well so not only this word is
interesting but this word is well something that is worthwhile something
that is valuable something that is useful if you do it it is a good use of
your time it is worthwhile but in this case Pyrrhic if something is Pyrrhic it
means it is a victory that you have gained or something you have won
unfortunately the cost was so high it was not worthwhile so I always like to
show interesting and different words at the start of my live streams I have been
asked to explain this phrase here is a phrase and we use it quite often where
we are talking about things we are going to do in the future I have been asked to
explain all in good time apparently it was in a song apparently there is a song
with this in the lyrics so I will explain it right now shall I because
after all that is my job so all in good time means the thing will happen all you
have to do is wait for it so something that will happen in the future sometimes
you might be very impatient perhaps you can’t wait for the thing to happen or
arrive so as a way of helping you to relax and
to be patient you can say all good things will come they will come all in
good time so it is an expression that we use quite a lot especially when we are
trying to reassure someone when they are feeling anxious about a future event or
maybe something that is going to happen and they are very excited about it so
something will happen all in good time all in good time it is a brilliant
phrase and it is one that is used quite a lot shall we have a look at the live
chat or shall we have a look out the window let’s have a look outside first
of all shall we oh yes it’s looking very nice there it is that is actually a view
from my studio window right now looking across towards one of the villages very
close to where I live isn’t it a lovely day everything is looking rather nice

Luis hello Haneen nice to see you watching in Algeria is I do I have a lot
of people watching in Algeria mr. Duncan I love to listen to you whilst I’m
preparing to go to work says Guadalupe thank you very much and
I’m glad I brighten your day a little bit Rolfie is here hello to the
Dominican Republic oh nice to see that you’re joining us here today as well I
suppose I should mention I suppose I should mention the word even though I’ve
lost it where’s it gone wait there excuse me
I’ve lost my word I suppose I should mention this it would appear that we
have reached an agreement with Europe however there are still some people who
don’t like the new agreement for this I’m not even going to say the word it’s
a little little bit like Harry Potter do you know in Harry Potter you can
never say that guy’s name I can’t read I can’t remember what his name is by the
way but his name must never be mentioned and nor must this so we will never say
this word ever again however yesterday it would appear that an agreement has
been reached in Europe and also across the UK however there is still the final
vote which will be taking place this weekend so we will see what happens is
this ever going to happen will we have to wait for another year or maybe it
won’t happen at all stay tuned to this channel to find out all the
latest dear dear me what an age to be alive what a time to be alive he was an
interesting word oh look at that now this is a word I always think about when
whenever I consider anything that is topical or popular I always think of
this word hype hype now yesterday we talked about hyperbole which is very
similar but this is another word hype so this actually can be used as a noun or a
verb so it can be hype or you can hype something so if you promote something if
you want lots of people to watch your movie or listen to your radio program or
buy your magazine quite often you will have to hype that particular thing you
need to get people really excited by the thing you are doing some people said mr.
Duncan you should hype your English lessons you should tell lots of people
maybe you need to take out some advertisements who knows so here’s
another word you might describe this as a buzz word so this is a word that is
often used so when you hype something it means you push it you force it into the
public domain or into the public eye by advertising it or creating some sort of
news story you want to get publicity you want people to see your thing so you
must hype the thing you must make it everywhere hype it’s a great word and it
does happen a lot nowadays people do like to hype things let’s go to the live
that oh hello you know who Harry Potter you know who oh yes of course
he who must not be named is what what they said
I think Fernando is here oh hello Fernando nice to see you here
today oh and I can see your photograph as well you have a lovely smile on your
faces mr. Duncan you are a friendly person every day in front of me thank
you very much I always try to be happy I always try to be happy and positive of
course being alive is really great and the reason why I mentioned that today is
because mr. Steve this afternoon mr. Steve is going to a funeral one of his
friends from his choir passed away a few days ago so today he is going to a
funeral now I did wonder this morning because Steve was dressed in black
he had his black tie and he looked a bit somber so I knew he was going to a
funeral but quite often when you go to a funeral you will often you will often
wear dark clothing to look sad and mournful it is also a sign of respect
for the person who has passed away so unfortunately Steve is going to a
funeral this afternoon what a way to spend your Friday afternoon I don’t like
funerals there is no way I am ever going to a funeral
you would have to carry me there you really would a funeral I would never go
to a funeral if it was the last thing I ever did hmm just variation there is a
Chinese curse which says may he live in interesting times oh well I think it’s
safe to say that at the moment we are living in interesting times there are
some very strange things taking place around the world
lots of countries having political upheaval so when we say upheaval so we
mean chaos or confusion or maybe there is a situation where maybe there is an
argument taking place up evil chaos so many countries at the moment are going
through periods of transition as far as their politics is concerned including
here in the UK as I mentioned a few minutes ago
Cristina says I have been hyping your English lessons to my friends I’m
pleased to hear that do you know the best type of publicity the best
publicity in the world is with this word of mouth if you like something tell a
friend spread the word spread the news Rolfie says the world is upside down at
the moment I think that would be very fair to say very fair to say that is a
pretty accurate statement I think so Hassam good afternoon mr. Duncan and all
the group nice to see you here as well so the person who can’t be named in
Harry Potter yes that’s right Ana has got it right although I’m not going to
say it just in case just in case because let’s face it he who must not be named
is pretty scary you are really a good teacher mr. Duncan thank you Emmet thank
you also to one or two people using Arabic today I can’t read your names
because I don’t actually read Arabic I can’t read it unfortunately but maybe
you could type your name in English fantastic
I am very intrigued by many things sometimes in life we have to try new
things and here is a great expression that defines that very thing so maybe in
life you want to try something new maybe there is a business opportunity that is
offered to you maybe you get the feeling that you want to make some changes in
your life maybe you want a change of career maybe you want to do something
else something new perhaps nothing ventured nothing gained so sometimes if
you don’t try something new you will never find out how it turns out so maybe
you want to learn a new language maybe you want to learn English well you will
have to give a lot of your time and effort so you might have to put some
work into it and spend some of your time doing it nothing ventured nothing gained
if you don’t try if you don’t pursue the thing in question then maybe you won’t
gain anything so nothing ventured nothing gained
sometimes it is good to try something new try something new maybe a new food
so maybe something you’ve never eaten before or maybe a new type of job maybe
you are bored in your current job and you want a change of scenery so I like
this I like this expression very much nothing ventured nothing gained if you
don’t try something if you don’t take that opportunity if you don’t venture in
that direction you will gain nothing sometimes you have to take the risk I
know in my life I have taken one or two risks especially when I’ve been changing
the direction of my life so I’ve been doing this
but instead I try that sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t but as they
say nothing ventured nothing gained if you don’t try you don’t find out I think
that’s a pretty good expression today we are talking about one or two things we
are talking about body movements the way we express certain body movements the
way you move your body or maybe an action that involves the movement of
your body so that is one of the things we’re going to talk about in the next
half an hour also some think we all do something I’m pretty sure every person
watching at the moment has done lie yes when you lie how do we describe that
action we are going to look at that a little bit later on as well
but first of all we are going to go back in time way back in time six years back
to this day in 2013 to take a look at what was going on in my back garden hello and good morning welcome to day 18
of 31 days of dunked over the weekend is almost here are you excited I hope so
as you can see I’m in my garden today I thought I would take the opportunity to
enjoy this fine weather while it lasts because apparently the weather forecast
for this area is pretty bad for the next few days it’s going to rain so I thought
why not come outside and have one last blast of sunshine hmm would you like a damson yeah I think
they’ve gone a little bad now I have had a number of comments sent to me
regarding day 13 of dunk Toba that is the one where I’m in the car yes you are
correct we do drive on the left-hand side of the road here in England there
are some other countries that do this – such as Australia and India it must look
very strange to see someone driving the opposite way to everyone else right hand
driving is normal in most other countries I remember when I was living
in China that it took me a long time to get used to cycling the opposite way
round to England it was at its most awkward when making turns after
returning to the UK I had exactly the same problem adjusting to left hand
driving of course these days I do not use the road at all so it is no longer
an issue I prefer to walk or to be a passenger and let the driver worry about
the road can you see all of the damsons that have fallen onto the ground now
there are hundreds of them of course they can’t be eaten now they are
inedible I have received some messages asking me
to show some of the surroundings where I live
especially the town well you can see lots of shots of Much Wenlock in my
Olympics lesson which is lesson 73 in that lesson I talk about the town and
its connection for the Olympic Games Shropshire is a lovely place to live
with great scenery and Shropshire is the least densely populated county in Great
Britain the largest town in Shropshire is Shrewsbury the old name for
Shropshire is Salib Shropshire is a landlocked County this means that its
whole boundary connects with other counties Shropshire is the largest
landlocked County in England what I love about living here is that you are very
close to Wales in fact on a clear day you can see the Welsh Hills from my
house many people were getting all excited about football
earlier this week so I thought I would look at an idiom to do with balls
the idiom is to take your eye off the ball if you have been distracted by
something or you have lost concentration for a few moments then we can say that
you took your eye off the ball you were not paying full attention you became
distracted for a brief moment if you take your eye off the ball in a soccer
match then the other team may take advantage of this and score a goal so
the weekend is about to arrive what do you plan to do this weekend
anything special lined up going somewhere maybe for some reason Friday
seems to be most people’s favourite day of the week I wonder which day is the
least favourite can you guess mmm there we were going back in time six
years ago can you believe it was six years ago I certainly can’t believe it
but I have to believe it because it’s true so that was an excerpt from day 18
of October way back in 2013 but now we are back live yes it’s live and it is
English on a Friday hello to you lots of people talking about football because
many football matches are taking place you may have noticed during the week
quite a few football matches have been taking place in fact would you like to
see mr. Steve and myself playing football in the garden really okay we are talking all about the subject of
lying later on do you ever tell lies have you ever told a lie to someone has
anyone ever lied to you telling lies is often seen as a negative
thing however sometimes lies can actually be good find out what that’s
all about later on right now we are talking about body movements ways in
which your body can move types of movement that have descriptions quite
often body movements can be described as an action so maybe something you are
actually doing with your body or a part of your body steady so body movements we
are going to look at some words and of course the actions also have other uses
as well let’s have a look at the first one right now the first one is oh very
nice pinch pinch now this is an action this
is a violent action so if you punch quite often you will move in that way so
a punch when we talk about punch we often use our fist to hit something or
someone you might punch the wall you might punch a pillow or you might punch
your next-door neighbor when he plays his music too loud punch also punch can
mean to make a hole in something so if you punch a hole it means you use force
to create a hole you punch a hole and also punch is a
type of drink which is made of different types of alcohol all mixed together
quite often also you will put fruit juice something sweet into the drink as
well so punch is also a type of drink so punch make a hole punch or a drink that
is served normally alcoholic drinks another word
very similar to the previous one strike strike is also a movement movement with
your body so if you strike something quite often you will use part of your
body to hit or to punch so strike is the action of one thing hitting another
quite often a person will strike another person so you might describe punch as
strike as well so if you punch someone we can say that you strike them you
strike them on the nose or you’ve punched them on the nose so strike can
mean hit also the word strike can mean to take
industrial action if you stop working in protest so you go on strike so this word
has more than one use so to hit someone or maybe if a bolt of lightning hits the
ground it will strike so maybe something that is hit it has been struck which is
the past tense of strike strike struck my next-door neighbor was struck by
lightning strike struck is the past tense you can
also hold your body in a certain position you can strike a pose so when
you strike a pose it means you hold your body in a certain way quite often in a
attractive way or something that is seductive you strike a pose pose you
position your body in a certain way here’s another one slap ooh especially
the ladies this is for the women by the way because ladies when they get
offended or upset will often slap someone in the face so if you slap
someone it means your hand there it is how our hand will strike someone however
normally the hand is open so not a fist but hand so you use your open hand to
hit someone you slap them one thing hitting another thing can also be called
slap so maybe two things slap together slap here’s a great word and it really
does sound like the action because when you slap someone the sound is slap slap
I like it although I don’t like getting slapped to be honest
oh he’s another one if you are feeling angry maybe you want to use your
fingernails you will scratch someone so you will use your fingernails to leave
marks on a person or maybe on an object you can scratch something with your
fingernails or maybe you use something sharp like a knife something that you
scratch you scratch something you leave a deep mark and of course the action of
scratching someone with your fingers especially ladies
once again when a woman gets angry especially nowadays because many women
have very long fingernails if you upset a lady she might scratch your face or
scratch your eyes out not literally that is an expression so if you scratch
someone’s eyes out it means you react in a very angry way
quite often physically scratch mica says I have never slapped anyone I’m very
glad to hear that here’s another one point point so quite
often if a person points you point so you use your finger to indicate
direction or the position of something where something is so you point you use
your finger to point of course it’s worth mentioning that in some countries
and in some cultures pointing is considered very rude I remember when I
was in Malaysia and one of the first things I was told was never point with
your finger never point anywhere because it’s considered rude
however if you do want to point it some more thing if you want to point it
something or someone you can use your thermo so apparently in Malaysia if you
want to point it something you can use your thumb not your finger point of
course something that is sharp something that has a sharp edge or end normally
something that comes to a sharp end is point point also in conversation if you
are trying to get a certain thing across in a sentence you are trying to make
your point so the point is the thing that you are trying to express we might
ask a person what is your point and then you will express or explain the
thing you are trying to say so point can actually be used in many ways location
can also be pointed says yes mr. Duncan it’s true it’s
Malaysian culture I know well I’ve been to Malaysia many times I’ve spent a lot
of time in Malaysia so Point has many uses another one now oh yes here’s
another one another word and also another expression this shows movement
tap so you tap something tap quite often with your
finger so you will tap when you type we can say that you tap on the keyboards so
you use your fingers your fingers are tapping they are striking the keys on
the keyboard tap so this is an expression that shows body movement you
might tap someone on the shoulder to get their attention so you tap someone tap
so here is another word that has a lot of uses also if you want to get some
water from a tap you will turn on the tap so a thing that is used as an outlet
for water is also tap to break into something like a circuit or maybe if you
want to listen in on a phone call you will connect a device to the wires we
can say that you tap the phone line so you can listen to the conversations well
here’s an interesting one I like this one clench that is a real expressive
word clench to clench you close you do something with force quite often you
will clench your fist especially if you’re angry so maybe you’re feeling
angry or annoyed about something you will clench your fist
you can also clench your teeth so maybe you are in pain or maybe you are trying
to hold back your anger you will clench your teeth it means to hold something
closed or together with force quite often we clench things
a way of easing pain or stress clench another one you might not realize that
this is a body movement but it is block you can block someone quite often with
your hand so maybe you block a person if they are coming towards you maybe they
are about to hit you so you put your hand in front of you to block their
punch or to stop them from getting near you so if you block something you stop a
person from doing something block you block them of course block can be used
in other ways as well maybe a person on the Internet is bothering you
so you block them you stop them from contacting you by making them invisible
and also making you invisible you block them here’s another one oh this is a
nice one I like this one this is one that you do when you agree
with someone if you agree with a person you nod nod so the movement with your
head is nod if you agree with someone we can not yes I agree you nod your head of
course the opposite is shake so if you shake your head that means you disagree
shake nod you nod your head in agreement oh here’s another one
this is the joint in your arm so here is your elbow your elbow this can also be a
movement so you might hmm elbow someone you hmm
give them the elbow so if you elbow someone it means you push them out of
the way or you exclude them you push them
away so elbow you push someone away using your elbow and of course the
expression you give someone the elbow so if you give someone the elbow it means
you exclude them you push them away you ignore them you give them the elbow
knee now this is a joint in your leg so halfway up your leg there is a joint
that allows you to walk me of course this can also be a movement so maybe you
use your knee to hit someone you need a person you use your knee to hit a person
quite often you will need someone in the stomach or maybe if you are a lady and
maybe a man is getting too close to you you might need him in the balls it does
happen and it’s very effective kick he’s the final one kick
if you kick someone you use your foot to strike a person so if you kick someone
you might kick them in the stomach you might kick them in the knee you might
kick them in the head kick of course you can also kick a ball so kick is a body
movement and also something that gives you excitement something that gives you
pleasure can also be a kick so you might get a kick out of something something
that gives you pleasure I really get a kick out of receiving your messages so
to get a thrill or pleasure from something we can also say kick you get a
kick out of something I hope that has been helpful don’t
forget I’m back tomorrow I’m here I’m actually here every day I’m here every
day during October here are the times again oh my goodness
31 days of live English in October to celebrate my 13th year on YouTube so I
have been here now doing this on YouTube for 13 years don’t forget if you want to
follow my lessons you can subscribe don’t forget there is I think it’s over
here underneath the video there is a subscribe button so don’t don’t forget
you can also subscribe to my lessons as well
hello mr. Duncan how are you doing hi Ibrahim I’m okay thank you very much yes
when you take a knee if you take a knee it means you kneel down you rest your
body on one knee you take a knee often used as a sign of respect or remembrance this is like self-defense vocabulary
you’re right Rolfie so when we say self-defense
it means you protect yourself from attack maybe a person is trying to
attack you maybe you have to use your body to defend yourself
we call that self-defense self-defense hello – Luis I have some people from my
village who live in the same state and they left 50 years ago do they live in
Portugal I didn’t know you came from Portugal Luis I did not know that isn’t
that strange I’ve only just realised that that you come from or originally
you were in Portugal ok I’m ok today we are now going to talk about something we
all do and then I will be going do you ever tell a
lie lie something that we all do sometimes we have to do it we have no
choice sometimes we lie to protect ourselves sometimes we lie to protect
other people sometimes we lie because we don’t want to be punished and sometimes
we lie because we can’t help ourselves there are people who lie all the time
maybe their whole life is a lie they have a life that isn’t real they lie
about everything they live in a fantasy world they are a Fanta cyst rather like
the world of walter mitty so have you ever heard of walter mitty he is a
well-known liar here’s another one now so if you lie
what do you do you cheat so you cheat you lie if you lie you
cheat it means you do something to mislead a person cheat of course cheat
can also mean to go behind another person’s back you do something without
them knowing maybe you cheat on your wife or your
husband you do something with another person you cheat oh dear
and of course you can cheat when you’re playing a game so if you cheat when you
are playing a game it means you break the rules of the game
you cheat oh I like this one OOP so this is a strange word to
pronounce because you have the letter D and you and P all together do doop doop
so the sound is almost like J so it’s almost like you
and in British English that’s the way we pronounce it however in American English
they will pronounce this as dupe so if you dupe someone it means you trick them
you lie to them you mislead them you get them to do something that they didn’t
want to do you trick them so you dupe a person in British English
and in American English you will dupe someone dupe another one deceive if you
deceive someone again you trick them you lie to them you tell them something that
isn’t true maybe you give them a story about
something that is not true you deceive them the action is called deception so
deception is how we class the action of trying to deceive someone that’s how we
describe it it is deception you deceive someone pachu asks why do some people
lie well as I said a few minutes ago there are many reasons why a person
might lie to someone here’s another one swindle swindle you will often hear this
in British English you might find that this is more often used in British
English if you swindle someone you trick them you do something behind their back
you say something or do something to make them believe a thing that isn’t
true you trick them into doing something you swindled them quite often we use
this when we are talking about money so if a person tricks you into giving them
money we can say that they have swindled you
they swindle a person can Swingle swindle their employer
maybe they steal money from the company they work for
they swindle someone ah here’s a good one a good old biblical word betray you
betray someone oh I like this word it’s very strong this word so when you betray
something it means you give a false or fake appearance so you appear like one
thing but really you are like another person or you do something behind a
person’s back you do something to cheat them you do something against them you
betray them I like that word that is a good one misson form here is a word that
a lot of people are using at the moment when they are talking about certain
things certain political things we might say that one person will miss inform
another person they will tell them something that is not true so missing
form to give false information if you give false information or maybe you
publish false news mm-hmm you miss inform miss inform another one can’t a
very simple word there con if you con someone again you trick them you deceive
them you get them to do something that they don’t realize will do them harm or
maybe something that is not real or true you con another person a person who does
this can be described as a con artist so a con artist is a person who tricks
people into buying things that are useless or maybe they a
ask a person to pay too much money for a service they con you con here’s another
good one I like this word hoodwink ooh hoodwink again a very interesting
word we are using some very interesting and intriguing words today if you had
wink someone again it’s very similar you mislead them you lie you get them to
believe something that isn’t true you had wink someone you were hoodwinked
by the salesman that came to your door he got you to pay some money for
something that was useless they hoodwinked you when you lie quite
often you will hide hide something when you hide something you do something that
you don’t want other people to see like now so if you hide you lie you do
something behind another person’s back you try to keep something secret maybe
some information that might hurt another person’s feelings you hide the facts you
hide the truth you lie something that is a lie can be described as untrue
so something untrue is a lie it is something that is not true not real not
fact it is untrue a person might tell you something that is untrue he told me
that he was going to the pub with his friends
but it all turned out to be untrue mm-hmm and finally something that is
fictitious fictitious a fictitious thing is something that is not real so quite
often in literature we will often use the word fiction so when we use the word
fiction it means fictitious not real it has been made up it has been created it
is something that has been created in someone’s mind something is fictitious
fictitious not true not real it is fiction the thing you have told me isn’t
real it’s not true its fictitious you reside to me of course lying is not
always a bad thing sometimes lying can be very useful maybe you are going to
hold a surprise birthday party maybe you are going to surprise your mother or
father with a surprise birthday party but you want to keep it a secret maybe
you will have to lie so maybe you will have to tell them lies to get them in a
certain place or maybe you have to tell them lies to hide the fact that you are
about to throw a surprise birthday party for them so quite often we will lie for
good reasons and we will call that a white lie white lie so white lie is a
good lie so sometimes we lie because we want to protect other people or maybe we
have something that we want to give them or Surprise them with so sometimes you
have to lie to hide something that is good or nice or maybe if you want to
protect someone’s feelings maybe if you don’t want to hurt them
maybe your neighbor comes round and says oh do you like my new dress
isn’t it nice but you don’t really like it
you don’t think it’s really suitable so you might pretend to like it you will
lie however if you ask me I will tell the truth I will tell you that that
dress looks dreadful take that dress back to the shop
it looks dreadful it looks awful it’s not a good dress it does not suit you

  • I'm watching for second time this video, and I'm noticing that I enjoy a lot every piece of music that you chose, even the shortest like the curtains, the oppening and closure of the live stream, the one for the soccer match, the one for the fireworks too, they are all great! You´re doing an amazing work and I'm very grateful for that.
