I promise you that is fun However, I notice that a lot more native speakers of English will say thanks or thanks so much If you want to add some emphasis, so let’s practice you can say it after me Thanks Thanks so much Thanks so much. The beautiful thing is that the S on the end of thanks just blends easily Into so thanks so much Thanks so much. Let’s say it one more time with feeling. Thanks so much You’ve made my day now along with Thanks. There’s another bonus word that I just have to throw in here Please in English in North American culture we use please and Thank you a lot more often than I’ve noticed people using please in other languages. So I’ve lived abroad In different countries, I’ve learned different languages and I’ve noticed I’ve been a little bit surprised that in other languages It’s not as common to say please but for me I think please is a very important word to say for example if you are at a cafe your order and your coffee, you might ask the nice person taking your order for a medium coffee please and in North American culture sing Please and thank you will take you a long way to help you to connect with native speakers Speaking of speaking better English more fluent English and connecting with native English speakers I want to invite you to a special LIVE class that I’m doing about the three Keys to English fluency the three keys. I’m going to teach in the live online English class with you where you can actually comment ask me questions. They will help you So much in your English So I would love to spend more time with you If you want to sign up for my live online English class You can do that at go natural English comm slash keys That’s ke Y s and I’m gonna share with you three important keys for improving your English fluency Quickly, these are like hacks or tricks that really work like the secrets to English fluency okay, let’s move on to number two number two is Excuse me, excuse me can be used in various ways in English We can use it if we want to get past someone, you know, excuse me. I need to get around you Excuse me, please or it could be to get someone’s attention. So this is a great way to talk to anyone to start your conversation Excuse me. Excuse me, ma’am. Excuse me, sir. Excuse me, miss or just excuse me I’m a fan of just plain. Excuse me, because some people don’t like to be called ma’am Like it makes you feel a little bit old. Okay, maybe I’m just speaking for myself here But when someone calls me ma’am super old, so excuse me is a great way to start a conversation. Excuse me Do you know what time it is? Excuse me. Do you know where there’s a good cafe because I’d like to order a cafe. Americano anyway Excuse me can be tricky to pronounce. So pay special attention to The wise sound that gets added even though there is no y in the word excuse so listen excuse Do you hear the y let’s practice saying it say it after me, excuse me? Excuse me Excuse me Awesome. Okay number three. I really appreciate it. This is kind of like another way to say Thank you, but it just makes you sound so much more grateful and so much more fluent in English I really appreciate it. It’s also a great way to Follow up when you make a request. Like let’s say I’m ordering that Caffe americano And I want two shots of espresso in my coffee Not just one so I might say two shots, please. I really appreciate it Oh, I really need those an extra shot of espresso. So I really appreciate it and Gratefulness will get you a long way In English. So again used your thank you your pleases your excuse me And your I really appreciate it as phrases that help you to connect with native English speakers and sound more fluent Next never mind. Never mind Can sound a little bit rude, so be careful how you use it? So if someone didn’t hear you, you might say oh, that’s okay Never mind, or maybe if you may be asked for something in your coffee Like and you decide you don’t want it you could say. Oh, no, that’s okay. Never mind so never mind is Different than I don’t mind and I see a lot of English learners actually confusing these a lot So I’d like to explain this quickly to help you out. I Don’t mind means Anything is okay with me. I have no preference or it’s okay. So for example, um the coffee is not Ready, we need to brew more coffee. So it’s going to take about 15 minutes. Oh, that’s okay I don’t mind I have plenty of time. Don’t worry about it versus Never mind would actually be the complete opposite So if I was at the cafe, and they said the coffee is not ready. We have to brew more coffee It’s going to take about 15 minutes. And if I said, oh never mind, that means I don’t want that coffee That means no nevermind Cancel my order. So these are very different phrases. I hope that helps next. How does that sound? How does that sound is a great way to get confirmation when you are proposing something for example? Would you like to go get a cup of coffee with me? Um, how does that sound if we get a cup of coffee right now? So I’m proposing something I’ve been inviting you to do something and I want your confirmation. So how does that sound? How does that sound you can repeat after me? How does that sound? How does that sound and to respond you could say that sounds great Or I can’t right now Next it’s very normal for all English speakers whether you’re native or not sometimes not hear something or not understand something and so a common way to ask for clarification is Sorry, what was that? What was that? What was that? What was that as a full sentence sounds much more polite than simply saying what? What what? What is okay, but in certain situations it could sound a bit rude So if you want to sound more polite more professional use the full sentence, so try repeating it after me now. Sorry. What was that? What was that? What was that? very good continuing with the theme of misunderstandings or understanding correctly You should confirm what you hear especially if you’re not sure. So we use this phrase. Let me confirm Let me confirm that coffee is gonna take 15 more minutes Hmm let me confirm so I need to wait at least 15 minutes to get my coffee So we say let me confirm and then we summarize the information that we want to confirm or check Repeat after me. Let me confirm Or let me confirm so oftentimes native English speakers Condense these two words. We blend them together. Let me becomes Lenny Let me confirm. Let me see Hmm. Let me think Hmm. Let me know if this is helpful for you. Tell me in the comments which one of these phrases you find most helpful Let me know next a very very common and useful phrase is nice to meet you now Let’s practice our pronunciation of this phrase because we say it we say these words all together So it almost sounds like one big long word instead of nice to meet you or it is Nice to meet you. We normally native speakers or fluent fast English speakers will say nice to meet ya nice to meet you Nice to meet you or nice to meet you. Nice to meet you So nice to meet you So this is a handy phrase whenever you meet a new person Nice to meet you is only used for the first time when you meet someone so if you are meeting a friend for coffee, you don’t need to say To meet you. You should say, it’s nice to see you. It’s so nice to see you I have two more for you Now as you’re getting to know new people and you say nice to meet you You might have a nice conversation and then you might want to stay in touch and get that person’s contact information so the best way the most native way in English to ask for someone’s contact information is can I get your can I get your can I get your I’m just speeding it up as we often blend sounds together when we say these phrases quickly and you could choose what works for you Facebook whatsapp Email can I get your email? Wonderful. So the last phrase that is super important and helpful is actually actually It’s super common very useful and difficult to pronounce. So let’s practice Actually pay really close attention because many English learners mispronounce this word and it sounds kind of funny and awkward, ah Surely actually actually actually And we combine this with some new information so oftentimes when we have something that might come as a surprise to someone a Disappointment to someone or to close the conversation to end the conversation So you guys actually I have to go because that was our 10 phrases for today and well, that’s the end of our lesson so actually, I Got to go.
