Hello and welcome back to another English Analysis.

Today well be examining an extremely popular TV Show, Game of Thrones.

This show follows the very brutal and dramatic kingdom of Westeros.

Where medieval families scramble to obtain theIron Throne’, and rule the 7 kingdoms.

Game of thrones is well known for its wonderful dialogue,

which is able to express the characters thoughts and feelings.

This particular clip will teach you some important vocabulary and phrases,

that you can use to express your own thoughts and feelings.

One more thing, while you're here why not install the eJOY chrome extension.

This tool will allow you to look up any words and phrases you find in the video.

So lets not waste another second and get started

Before we begin, please take note of the four steps we will follow.

1. Watch and enjoy the video

2. Look up any new words and phrases, and make sure you understand the video

3. Do the exercises with the video

4. Review the vocabulary and sentences structures we learned from the video

Firstly, lets watch the clip, so sit back and enjoy.

You're right.

You're not guilty of your father's crimes.

And I'm not beholden to my ancestor's vows.

Then why are you here?

Because I need your help, and you need mine.

Did you see three dragons?

flying overhead when you arrived?

I did.

And did you see the Dothraki,

all of whom have sworn to kill for me?

They're hard to miss.

- But still, I need your help?

- Not to defeat Cersei.

You could storm King's Landing tomorrow and the city would fall.

Hell, we almost took it and we didn't even have dragons

- Almost. - But you haven't stormed King's Landing.

Why not?

The only reason I can see

is you don't want to kill thousands of innocent people.

It's the fastest way to win the war,

but you won't do it,

which means, at the very least,

you're better than Cersei.

Now its time to analyse the video we have just watched.

You're right.

You're not guilty of your father's crimes.

And I'm not beholden to my ancestor's vows.

"Ancestors"

An ancestor is anyone who was born before you and is related to you,

For example

My grandparents, and my great grandparents

and my great great grandparents are all my ancestors.

This is another example of a great word to add to your vocabulary.

Make sure to practice this one!

Then why are you here?

Because I need your help, and you need mine.

Did you see three dragons

flying overhead when you arrived?

Awsome! Did you guys know that you can use the eJOY extension

to look up any words and phrases while watching this video?

Overhead

This word is used to describe something that is above the level of the head, mostly in the sky.

For example

Did you see that Hot Air Balloon flying overhead?

I did.

And did you see the Dothraki,

all of whom have sworn to kill for me?

They're hard to miss.

Hard to miss

This idiom is used to describe something that cannot be ignored,

is very noticeable or eye-catching

For example

Did you see Jacks new car? Its hard to miss

This is a pretty frequently used idiom so make sure you practice this one,

and add it to your vocabulary.

Another great feature of eJOY is the word hunt tool with this you can see how

different words are used in different contexts just by clicking on the orange button.

It's quite useful tool, isn't it

This tool was made to help you all understand

how to use the right vocabulary and sentences in the correct context

- But still, I need your help?

- Not to defeat Cersei.

You could storm King's Landing tomorrow and the city would fall.

Hell, we almost took it and we didn't even have dragons

Almost.

- But you haven't stormed King's Landing.

Why not?

The only reason I can see

is you don't want to kill thousands of innocent people.

Innocent

The word innocent describes someone that has not committed a crime or done something wrong.

For example

I swear I didnt steal the cookies! Im innocent!

It's the fastest way to win the war, but you won't do it,

which means, at the very least,

you're better than Cersei.

At the very least

This is an idiom that is used to indicate the least likely outcome or thing to happen.
