welcome to speak English now podcast

with your host Georgiana the podcast

that will help you to speak English

fluently with no grammar and no

textbooks hi everyone I am Georgiana

founder of speak English podcast.com my

mission is to help you speak English

fluently this week I realized that

Valentine's Day is coming up and I

wanted to delegate this lesson to

students who want to know how to ask a

girl out you never know when you're

gonna meet that special someone so you

gotta be prepared I've also prepared a

point of view story so you can practice

your grammar and vocabulary before I

start I'd like to thank everyone who

follows me on iTunes YouTube Facebook

Spotify etc thank you very much for your

support and your positive reviews every

time you share your honest opinion

you're in fact helping others to

discover a more effective and enjoyable

way of learning English alright

I just cut to the chase and tell you how

to ask a girl out

oh now you're probably wondering what

the expression cut to the chase means

well we use this phrase when we start

talking about the important aspect of

something we want to get to the point

without wasting time now I'm really

going to cut to the chase there are

different circumstances when you want to

ask a girl out if you want to ask a

friend to go up with you you'll need to

have a clear idea where and when you

want your day to be don't just tell her

you'd like to hang out sometime

one thing you could do is take her to

dinner at a not so elegant restaurant

it's a good choice for a first date but

away here are some useful expressions

that you can use when you want to ask

someone on a date you could use hangout

get-together or do something examples do

you want to hang out tonight let's get

together this weekend do you want to do

something tonight

whatever you do ask her in person

I know it may be tempting to ask her out

on the phone testing or over the

Internet

but this must be one of those

face-to-face moments be clear about your

intentions women find it attractive when

a man really knows what he wants you

don't have to explicitly say it's a date

but don't hide your feelings either I

know being rejected is a great risk it's

actually one of the biggest fears we all

experience at least once in our lives so

don't try to keep it cold now is the

time to be honest as hard as it may be

to keep it cool in this context means

that you don't want to show your

feelings in a difficult situation if you

ask a stranger out you're going to be

even more cautious avoid doing anything

that makes her feel pressured or unsafe

it's a good idea to talk to her with

other people nearby like that she'll

feel safe this is very important

don't make any physical contact unless

she does so first introduce yourself

politely make eye contact before

greeting her tell her your name and

compliment her if she responds nicely

with her name it's a good time to tell

her that you want to meet her although

if she ignores your greetings and

compliments

you'd better back

to back off means to move backwards in

order to get further away from something

by the way if you're not sure how to

compliment a woman remember that I

posted an episode with my honest advice

on how to compliment a woman now you may

ask yourself how do you give her your

contact information this is a classic

apparently most men expect women to give

them their phone number but I guess it's

probably best to take the initiative

just give her your phone number this

takes a lot of pressure off her hand to

make her more receptive about your offer

if she's interested she will likely

volunteer her phone number without you

needing to ask you could say it's been a

pleasure meeting you

but I gotta go now I really enjoyed

talking to you and I'd like to know you

better if you want to stay in touch

here's my number of course not all men

and women were created equal so you'll

need to pay attention to the body

language and use your intuition I guess

that you already know this but I must

remind you that I'm not a loved girl I'm

here to help you communicate better in

English love is always complicated

though it's easier when people are being

honest and respectful with one another

don't you think so and now let's

continue with the point of view story

this kind of story will help you to

improve your English grammar it's very

simple I tell you the same story more

than once every time I change a

grammatical aspect so you can see how

grammar changes and you can compare

you just have to listen all right let's

start I'll tell the story from Jake's

perspective in the past tense I'm Jake

and I'm an IT student last year I

accidentally discovered the perfect

algorithm for love consequently I

created my own dating website called

perfect love the website became an

immediate success even though new

members had to pay $100,000 to sign up

perfect love became viral in just one

week and as a result I became so rich

and famous that I decided to stop

charging any fees but then something

strange happened

surprisingly the new members were no

longer able to find love only the users

who had initially signed up found their

perfect match what had happened

maybe the algorithm wasn't at all

perfect I wasn't at all sure so I began

to worry and spend weeks revising the

code

apparently the code was correct because

the website was losing popularity I

started charging again a hundred

thousand dollars and that's when things

went back to the way they were before

all new members were instantly finding

their perfect match clearly the success

of the perfect love website wasn't due

to my algorithm but to the fact that

people had to pay a very high amount of

money let's listen to the story this

time in the plural Jake and Bill word to

IT students who accidentally discovered

the perfect algorithm for

consequently they created their own

dating website called perfect love the

website became an immediate success even

though new members had to pay a hundred

thousand dollars to sign up perfect love

became viral in just one week

and as a result Jake and Bill became so

rich and famous that they decided to

stop charging any fees but then

something strange happened surprisingly

the new members were no longer able to

find love only the users who had

initially signed up found their perfect

match what had happened

maybe the algorithm wasn't at all

perfect Jake and bill began to worry and

spent weeks revising the code

apparently the code was correct because

the website was losing popularity Jake

and Bill started charging again a

hundred thousand dollars that's when

things went back to the way they were

before all new members were instantly

finding their perfect match

clearly the success of the perfect love

website was not due to Jake and Bill's

algorithm but to the fact that people

had to pay a very high amount of money

let's listen to the story one more time

from Jake's perspective but in the

future tense I'm Jake and in the future

I'll be an IT student I will

accidentally discover the perfect

algorithm for love consequently I'll

create my own dating website called

perfect love the website will become

an immediate success even though new

members will have to pay $100,000 to

sign up

perfect love will become viral in just

one week and as a result I will be so

rich and famous throughout the side to

stop charging any fees but then

something strange will happen

surprisingly the new members will no

longer be able to find love only people

who had initially signed up will find

their perfect match why would this

happen

maybe the algorithm won't be perfect

I won't be at all sure so I'll begin to

worry and spend weeks revising the code

apparently the code will be correct

because the website will be losing

popularity and start charging again

$100,000 and that's when things will go

back to the way they were before all new

members will instantly find their

perfect match clearly the success of the

perfect love website won't be due to my

algorithm but to the fact that people

will have to pay a very high amount of

money isn't it curious how people's

perspective changes depending on whether

they have to pay money or not they say

people love things for free maybe that's

not entirely true what do you think

alright it's the end of this point of

his story I use this successful method

boring grammar rules you can use this

method to learn grammar it's more enjoy
