Difficulty: 0

only two more days to go Oh what will we do when I've stopped my live lessons?

yes the cold days have arrived it is really chilly at the moment here

in the UK and that is why we have lit the fire the fire is now burning away in

the living room keeping us nice and warm on day 29 of 31 days of learning English

in October 20019

yes it's arrived day 29 is here hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in England

how are you today are you okay I hope so are you happy on this

SuperDuper day the weather outside at the moment is glorious

we've got lovely sunshine outside look at that

it's quite a nice day so they're looking from my window right now and in the

distance you can see a little village far far away and that particular village

is called little Wenlock and I live in much Wenlock which is the larger place

so much Wenlock is the large town and little Wenlock and that is the place you

can see now on the screen that is a small town or maybe even a small village

or even a Hamlet Hamlet oh I like that word so a hamlet is a very small village

consisting of just a few houses and not many residents however if we look this

way oh there you can see some lovely clouds rolling by it's quite windy

outside and very cold that is the reason why we have the fire lit so it's become

very chilly it really does feel as if winter is on the way even though we are

still in autumn so we haven't quite reached winter we are still in the

season of autumn but there you can see the lovely clouds rolling by in the

distance it is rather nice outside today I must admit it's looking rather

glorious and I hope where you are everything is alright it

not too bad how has your week been so far

it was Monday yesterday that means today it's Tuesday

mm I hope you are having a good Tuesday it isn't too bad here I'm okay thank you

very much even though it's freezing last night once again it was very cold

outside and it would appear that the cold air has gone to my throat because

my voice today feels very uncomfortable I don't know why don't worry I'm not

becoming ill I think it's just the cold air because I went outside this morning

to put some food out for the birds however it is so cold outside I think

the cold air has gone onto my my little throat ah poor mr. Duncan so here we go

then we've got lots of things to talk about today we are talking about habits

and also routines the habits that you have in your life the things that you do

and also the routines things that you do regularly for example in the morning

when you wake up what do you do in the morning when you first wake up so we are

talking about your habits and routines the things that you do on a regular

basis and of course the things that you do that maybe other people don't know

about so habits come in all shapes and sizes

there are many different types of habit let's have a look at the live chat we'll

do the live chat first because I have so many things to tell you today so many

things to get through I don't know where to start to be honest so hello to the

live chat hi welcome thank you for joining me a big

congratulations to Kaiba Jen Kaiba you are first on today's live chat

I will give you a lovely graceful bow and also a curtsy just like a little

princess would do so hello to Kaiba also Grace is here as well Joe hello Joe

Louie Mendez a lot of people are here already thank you very much you are so

prompt prompt you are on time thank you also to zoo zoo seeker thank you very

much as well christina is here hello Christina

Palmyra Patrick Patrick says only two more days left you are right yes we only

have two more days of October which means we only have two more days of

daily live English streams so the final days

Wednesday and Thursday 2:00 p.m. UK time so you will see me tomorrow and on

Thursday but as soon as October ends so will my 31 days of English lessons

during October however don't worry there will be more live streams the only

difference is they won't be every day patchy was here also khyber again hello

khyber congratulations for being first again on the live stream

Ramzan hora is here also juice hello juice K I'm intrigued by your name Eric

after this month we will surely ramp up our English with all these lessons if

you ramp up something it means you increase you increase the quantity or

the amount or maybe the effort that you put into something you ramp up your

learning you increase it you put more energy into your learning

hello also to business business win hello to you watching in Vietnam also to

arts be lots of people who have been joining me almost every day for the past

28 days and of course today as well but only two more days of daily live English

to come just two more days I suppose we should mention this this is

now not happening so on the 31st of October this is not happening

it won't happen now until at least Friday the 31st of January 2020 so that

is when this is now happening or as far as we know it might happen it might not

it might get called off it might be postponed again so that is the day that

this is now happening so it isn't happening on Thursday no not now it's

not happening at all in fact however the thing that everyone is talking about now

here in the UK is this oh my gosh can I just say my brain can't stand all this

excitement there is always something new occurring

every single day in this country so now we have one of these coming up however

we haven't quite decided which day it's going to be so we have a choice of two

days it will either be Monday the 9th of December or it will be Thursday the 12th

of December so at the moment it looks as if one of these

is going to happen but we're not sure when so it might be on Thursday the 12th

of December just a few days before Christmas it is a very strange time to

have a an election to be honest not to mention the fact that it's also the

middle of winter so Thursday the 12th of December or it might be on Monday the

9th of December so that is the election they haven't voted on it yet so yes we

have joined the club because lots of countries at the moment are having

political upheavals and turmoil oh I like that word

turmoil chaos chaos confusion so we are having a general election maybe perhaps

possibly we're still not sure in December but they haven't decided yet I

wish they would make their minds up we've had three years over three years

of this three and a half years in fact of this I think people are getting a

little bit annoyed by it hello also to Harley Kwang hello to you

our man is here also Raqib Wow so many people on the live chat it's nice to see

you all here today Patrick asks how do you spell Hamlet yes

Patrick you have spelt it correctly yes exactly so a very small village a small

place or maybe a small area where there are houses and people living is a hamlet

in fact I live in Hamlet in fact I also live in a hamlet so I don't live in much

Wenlock I live near Much Wenlock in a very small hamlet

a very tiny village Christina hello Christina again also to Raqib Wow lots

of people so many people are joining me thank you very much for joining me today

I always feel very grateful when you join me on the livestream because I know

you have other things to do as well I know you have busy lives just like me

how can I see the subtitles all you have to do is press this on your keyboard so

if you press this button on your keyboard you will get the live captions

so now you know also there is another way of getting the live captions as well

to get the captions on your mobile phone or your tablet this is what you need to

do so you can go into the corner of your screen and you can find the settings for

the video and then you will choose captions so make sure you activate the

captions so if you are watching on a mobile device you click the Settings in

the corner of the video screen and then you select captions and that is how you

do it it's as simple as that hello also - mirela hello - senel hello

sanaka Buch who says I have written from Turkey a big hello to Turkey nice to see

you there I have been to your country twice in the past Zhang Kai says hello

hello to you as well where are you watching Zhang are you

watching in China maybe maybe who knows I don't know that's why I'm asking the

question Jamal is here Christelle Robert I can join you every

day of this week because I am on holiday I

lucky Christelle you are very lucky in fact the reason why I think you are

lucky is because you have a whole week on holiday very nice

don't worry mr. Duncan about the UK situation unfortunately there is a very

political chaotic political situation in Italy as well the whole world nowadays

in fact yes I think it's true I was watching the news last night and all

they were talking about were all of the events taking place around the world so

you have countries like Lebanon you have Spain you have where else Chile also

Venezuela although to be honest I haven't heard much about Venezuela for a

long time it would appear that the news has forgotten about Venezuela also in

Hong Kong as well so the protests continuing there and in fact yesterday

there were many protests and also at the weekend there will be more protests so

yes it's fair to say that there is political turmoil I love that word I

might say it again later our paren says I really love Birkin with

all my heart I think you mean Duncan can you declare

it here please mr. Duncan I am from Lambeth in London oh hello there Lambeth

so that is where a lot of the people speak with a company accent in chat all

right all right Eric cockney I come from London in chat but the old Apple impairs

to see her indoors the trouble in strife sorry about my terrible

cockney accent but Lambeth is one of the places where

a lot of people speak where they cut me accent they really do

hello walls so to Pedro hello Pedro nice to see you here as well I imagine if

each one of us spoke French Spanish Farsi and Chinese it will become chaos

yes well maybe if everyone spoke a different language it would be hard to

communicate that's one of the reasons why I love the English language the

reason why I'm an English addict is because from my own point of view I love

sharing information with other people and English is a great way of sharing

information and also ideas thoughts and opinions so that's one of my main

reasons for loving the English language I've always embraced English because

I've always seen it as a way of opening doors so not only for people learning

English as a Second Language but also for myself as well so even for me

English has given me many opportunities it's allowed me to travel the world it

has allowed me to meet people who I wouldn't normally meet and of course I

was able to communicate with them because they spoke English so that's the

reason why I love English so much al-khair says hi mr. Duncan I'm happy to

see you indeed there are so many events and political turmoil all around the

world but at the end hasn't the world always been in trouble

I suppose so so when you think about the 20th century there were many wars big

Wars well there were two large wars and many smaller Wars fights some of which

are still taking place today some of which are still occurring so there

that's it really so you are right mr. Duncan I would like

to see your bedroom really Pedro well that might be the strangest offer I've

had today not that I get many offers I really don't trust me not at my age

LOUIE LOUIE even in the same country it's difficult to understand each other

sometimes this is true so even if you live in a certain country like here in

the UK so because people speak English here in the UK with different accents

sometimes it might be difficult to understand what they are saying so even

though they are speaking English you might sometimes have difficulty

understanding certain words so yes it can happen in any place any place even

where the language is shared or common at teeb hello hih teeb nice to see you

here how is your day guys well my god my day is all right it's not too bad

because the weather is lovely I don't know why I always feel happy and excited

when the Sun is out so we have a lot of Sun today even though you can you can

also see a lot of clouds as well so there are many clouds floating in the

sky although the Sun is breaking through those clouds and shining on my little

face it's very nice really so we are talking about habits and routines in a

few minutes I suppose I might mention something that is important especially

if you are watching my live streams after they have finished so here is

something interesting can you see here video time-codes

now I've been wanting to explain these for a long time

underneath my video you will see these video

codes and they will allow you to skip ahead so if you are watching a video and

you don't want to watch all of the video you can actually click on the timecode

and you can see the time codes because they are blue so this is just an example

this is just an example to show you so video time codes they are very useful on

YouTube if you want to skip ahead if you want to move ahead to a different part

of the video in fact I should have something here let me just check to make

sure yes so here is an example of the time codes on my youtube channel so

underneath my videos you will see these things so this is just an example from

one of my lessons but you can see that the time codes are blue and all you have

to do when you see those under my video you click on the time that you want to

skip to and I must admit I think they are one of the best things to appear on

YouTube so I love video time codes I think they are amazing things and they

are always available on my video lessons after the live stream has finished so

after I finish I will put the time codes underneath the video so I find them very

useful I think video time codes are possibly one of the best things to

happen on YouTube for a long time that and also subtitles I think they are both

very useful things so I thought I would mention that I really wanted to mention

that so you would be aware also there is a playlist for all of my days so if

you've missed anything you can go under this video and

in the description there is a playlist with all of my 31 days on there Patrick

is here Anna is here also Belarus ear is here

hello Belarus er nice to see you back I know that you are very busy at the

moment I think you are making lunch for your family so thank you very much

Belarusian and don't forget to send my best wishes to your family as well

please Patrick is here also crystal thank you for your explanation I didn't

know about the time codes well one of the things about YouTube is they will

often introduce new things but they won't explain it to anyone so quite

often they will introduce things to their site but they won't actually tell

you what they are so these are very useful things and quite often I will

include them in my live stream comments underneath the video so you won't see

these live you will only see these under my recorded videos so I think that's an

interesting thing to mention can you pronounce the words cold and code I can

cold cold so the sound you are making half way

through the word is la la la like love cold cold and the other word is code

code code so cold it's cold outside and do you need my code to get into the

house do you need my code it's very cold so you can hear quite clearly there is a

difference in the pronunciation

does this mean that you edit the live videos no it doesn't mean that so

my live streams are recorded on to YouTube after they finish but I don't

edit them however you can find the time codes underneath the video I will show

them again so that's the sort of thing you will see so that is just an example

time codes allow you to skip ahead on the video so for example at the start of

my lesson I always play some music for about 3 minutes and that gives me a

chance to test my equipment so when I start my live streams you will also

always hear this you will always hear that music and then that gives me a

chance to connect my live stream and also to make sure that all the work that

everything is working all right all the technical things are functioning

so that's the reason why I do that yes it does make things better I agree with

you Louie definitely thank you very much for your company today I will be here

for another half an hour so don't worry I'm not going anywhere we are going back

in time we are going back to this date six years ago to find out what I was

getting up to I love idioms they spice up any sentence or conversation so well

here's a good one for you a storm in a teacup this idiom means that the fuss

and chaos caused by something is over the top the reaction is stronger than it

needs to be if people become angry over a small mistake or problem then we can

say that it is a storm in a teacup it is all a big fuss about

nothing I don't really like the fluorescent lights in here here another

idiom for you now to catch wind of something or to get wind of something

this means to find out about something some news has reached you you have been

informed about something perhaps the news concerns you or is about you you

find out about it you get wind of it the news has reached you idiom number three

is to go out on a limb this idiom does not relate to a body part but in fact a

tree the idiom means to do something it puts

you at risk or in danger you do something risky or difficult quite often

to help another person you go out on a limb to achieve something if you are

left out on a limb then you have been left with no help or support your work

colleagues would not support you they left you out on a limb the limb being

referred to is the branch of a tree

one more idiom before your comments to bark up the wrong tree this idiom refers

to a person making the wrong assumption about something they presume something

incorrectly perhaps they have accused someone of committing a crime but they

are wrong you could say that they are barking up the wrong tree they are

looking in the wrong place for the answer just like a dog that thinks there

is something worth chasing up a tree but there isn't the dog is barking up the

wrong tree and if your assumption is wrong so are you

going back in time their way back six years to 2013 I hope you enjoyed that

something from my special series of video lessons that I made in October

2013 it seems like such a long time ago and here we are now in 2019 2019 with

2020 just around the corner have you thought about next year because I know

it seems early but November is just around the corner so have you made any

plans for 2020 any plans anything that you have planned to do next year as the

New Year arrives we often make plans we make little choices or resolutions

things that we intend to do next year so it depends I suppose it depends on what

your plans and your circumstances are i guess 'sir jr hello mr. Duncan and

everyone I am late I would like to ask you is there a word in the English in

the English language home tasks thank you very much well we we can actually

use the phrase home tasks if you are doing something at home so maybe you are

working at home you have a home task to do so home task even though it sounds

odd but you can use that as a phrase but it is more likely that you will say

homework you are doing your homework or your chores so if you are doing

something around the house if you are washing your clothes or doing something

like that we can say you are doing your housework or your chores however if your

teacher has given you some work to do with one of the subjects that you

are learning but you have to do it at home then we can say homework we will

say homework congratulations mr. Duncan they are very

useful we like the timecodes LOUIE LOUIE I plan to go to Quebec in 2020 oh I hope

you have a nice time Quebec so Canada is quite a nice place what if mr. Steve's

nephews has just took his doctorate and he's living in Canada at the moment I

can't remember where I think I want to say Ontario but that sounds wrong I know

it probably isn't Ontario anyway have a great time next

year I hope you have a super time on your travels Rolfie is there an english

academy or organization that evaluates or approves the birth of a new word

that's interesting now you've probably heard of the word meme so meme can be

anything that spreads something that you see maybe a picture but also a word can

also be a type of meme so when a word comes into regular use quite often

people will sit and they will talk about the new words or the words that have

come along maybe new words or of course maybe an old word that has a new meaning

so yes it can happen so words become dictionary words once they've been used

for a certain amount of time and they have become common so once they've

become memes then quite often they will eventually end up in the dictionary so

every year many new words and phrases are added to the dictionary

so for example the Oxford Dictionary so I like the Oxford Dictionary I always

use oxford dictionaries for my references so anything that I look for I

always use Oxford University Press because they are quite good they've been

around for a long time and they are pretty well trusted to be honest so

every year they will add new words and phrases so things that have become

common in common use Ontario is a good place Thank You Pat show I'm not sure

where Steve's nephew is I can't remember the place I know it isn't Ontario that

doesn't sound right that doesn't sound right

Argentinian people have to make a terrible decision in the general

election last Sunday Noemi I haven't actually seen I haven't seen

who won so who actually won in the Argentine election I haven't seen who's

won I've seen lots of other news but I haven't I haven't heard the result from

the Argentinian election so I don't know what the result was

hello also to say dad or Qaeda Yahoo's watching in Turkey hello to Turkey again

a country I have been to in the past mr. Duncan I am reading books in the English

language yesterday I finished a book called the cross and the Switchblade

next we are the next is we are displaced by Malala okay then I'm not sure which

book that is I'm not sure mr. Steve is going to kill you

you mean me why mr. Steve has many reasons why he would like to push me

down the stairs on a dark evening I think so

Kathi Anna hello Cathy Anna we are talking about habits and routines so I

thought it would be fun to take a look at one of my early lessons so here is

one of my very early lessons where I talk all about habits good habits and

bad habits oh and also in the video you might notice that I look very young hi

everybody this is mr. Duncan in England how are you today

are you okay I hope so are you happy I hope so in today's

lesson we will talk about the awkward and some would say embarrassing subject

of our faults and bad habits do you like my nose I picked it myself

the word fault means something that is not perfect or isn't completely correct

there are other words that can be connected to fault such as abnormality

blemish defacement defect disfigurement failing floor imperfection and


all of those words you just heard relate to the appearance of something or how it

lurks however the word fault can also be used to show a wrong action we can say

it is your fault that is your mistake you did that wrong

that happened because of you you must take the blame for this

you really screwed up when we use these sentences we are telling the other

person that they are responsible for the mistake we are blaming them for it

of course a fault can also be related to another part of our behavior bad habits

bad habits are things we do that annoy other people or may appear unpleasant

rude or even dangerous there are many bad habits around for example biting

your fingernails talking with your mouth full of foods picking your nose

not taking a regular bath or shower

being late for an appointment watching too much TV drinking too much

alcohol such as beer and wine smoking cigarettes not changing your socks for

talking for ages on the phone there are other words that can be used to describe

our personal habits such as custom eccentricity foible idiosyncrasy oddness

peculiarities quirk routine and

shortcoming what's that smell oh no it is fair to say that nobody is

perfect we all have little habits or something we do there's a noise others

sometimes they may be hard to accept they can even lead to the breakup of

relationships such as marriage so it is true to say that everyone has some

little fault that is a part of his or her character the only way to really

deal with it is to try and live with it or the consequences could be disastrous

so there it was oh my goodness that was over 11 years ago 11 years ago what were

you doing 11 years ago I was making YouTube videos in fact 13 years ago I

was making YouTube videos what were you doing 13 years ago so this Thursday I

will be celebrating my 13th anniversary on YouTube I started making my videos

way back in 2006 when YouTube was just a little baby YouTube was just a little

infant trying to walk for the first time and drinking out of a big bottle hello -

nee Amon hello to you as well Palmira what a good actor mr. Duncan is yes one

of my best performances is when I pretend to be a normal person hello

Louie Louie I used to have so many bad habits when I was young but that was in

the 1980s the 1980s ah I remember it well because I was a teenager hello Anna

I don't always remember how funny you were in your old lessons you are not

only a teacher but also an actor thank you very much for that I still haven't

received my Oscar or my Emmy or even a Razzie even a Razzie would be nice so a

Razzie is an is an award that they give for bad acting so I haven't even had one

of those yeah it's not very nice we are talking about habits and routines the

things that you do every day so when we talk about routines we talk about things

that we often do or maybe something we do as part of our day so for example you

wake up in the mall morning what's the first thing you do

when you wake up in the morning besides complain about the fact that you have to

get up and go to work or go to school so that might be one of the things that you

do in the morning you wake up you open your eyes you stretch your arms you get

out of bed maybe you go to the toilet first of all maybe I don't know and then

you go downstairs maybe you go downstairs to have something to eat

you have your breakfast and then you go back upstairs and you take a shower and

then you get ready to go out to work or maybe you do the opposite maybe you have

a shower and you're wash first of all and then you have your breakfast so a

routine is not just habit but also the order of those things so maybe you do

things in a certain order so wake up wash eat breakfast get dressed go out

the house so that might be your routine so when we talk about routines the

things you do every day and also your habits as well so habits can also refer

to your routines the things you often do so when we talk about habits we talk

about your habit maybe one particular thing that you do or something you enjoy

doing sometimes a habit can be a good habit

and sometimes a bad habit lifestyle now here's an interesting word a person's

lifestyle when we talk about someone's lifestyle it is how they live the way

they live their life the way they do things in their life so we can say a

person's habit or their lifestyle the things they do so lifestyle is normally

a generic word it covers your general behavior the way

you live maybe where you live how much money you have so your lifestyle relates

to all of the areas of your life the way you live where you work if you are

married or not married so there are many ways of describing that also we can talk

about your daily life so the things you do everyday in your daily life how do

you spend your day what do you do in your day normally maybe during the week

you go to work so your daily life can change depending on what day of the week

it is or which day you are doing certain things oh I like this word here's a nice

word existence so your existence is the feeling of being alive or maybe the way

you live so your existence once again covers everything it covers your life

the way you live even your sense of being alive your existence is the thing

that you are aware of so existence covers everything when we talk about a

person's existence we are talking about their like so your existence all oh I

like this word he's an interesting word mode so mode is the method of doing

things so again it can be part of your routine not only what you do but the way

you do it your existence and the mode the way you do things and also the means

oh I like this word some interesting words today so when we talk about the

means that means the way of getting things so your means

might be the way you survive or the things you do to earn money how much

money do you earn what do you do to earn money so we talk about a person's means

the way to survive or the things you do so you can survive quite often we will

have to go to work in fact most of us do we all have to go to work we have a job

if you are young you will go to school so you might not earn any money so you

have no means when you are young but when you are older you have to work you

have to get a job you have to earn money so you can survive we talked about your

means so this is part of your daily routine you have to go to work you have

to earn some money

hello to Palmero hello also to Pat you what is the best part of your day well

my favorite part of the day is always waking up I always feel slightly

relieved when I wake up in the morning I always wake up with a smile on my face

because I know that I get to do this all over again I get to live another day so

yes it's quite nice so I suppose my favorite part of the day is actually

opening my eyes in the morning and I realize that I can do this again I am

still alive which is always very comforting

to be honest Pat chew and also Christina my lifestyle is to keep me healthy and

play sports yes very good so part of your lifestyle

can be not only your work but also what you do in your spare time the things you

do to keep yourself happy and also healthy yes pretty good I like

it what is the most single important thing for happiness in life that is not

an easy question because everyone's view of life is subjective so something that

makes one person happy might not make another person happy

so really happiness is what you find the things that make you happy your

connection with the world around you is what makes you happy so we all find

different things in our lives that make us happy so maybe something I enjoy or

something that makes me happy might not make someone else happy

they might be bored by it they might not enjoy it so I think happiness is very

much subjective it is all down to the individual how you see life the things

you want the things you see the things you need and also the things that make

you happy as a person I think so thank you very much for your lovely

messages today of course if we want to progress through life part of our daily

routine might involve having a goal or maybe more than one goal you might have

many goals the things you want to do in your life the things you want to achieve

the place you want to be the job you want to have the person you want to be

with so we all have goals so your goal is the thing you want to do or you want

to achieve the thing you want to be in the future so I suppose we all have

goals when we are young as I said yesterday sometimes we miss many

opportunities because we don't realize they are there however later in life

quite often we will have at least one goal or many goals things we want to

achieve things we want to get or do your aims again if you aim to do something it

is a goal you aim towards the goal just like football so your aims are the

things that you want to achieve or do and of course a lot of people feel that

having a goal will give them purpose this once again is a big word it really

is so purpose is really talking about a person's worth in this world so everyone

needs a purpose everyone needs a reason to feel useful I

suppose from my point of view I think I would be lost if I didn't have a purpose

so I think most people search for a purpose in their life something that

they want to do maybe something they enjoy doing so your aims quite often

refer to some purpose something that you want to do in your life maybe a target

maybe a thing you see in your future that you would like to achieve some

people will go to university and they will get a degree like mr. Steve's

nephew in Canada so he has just got his doctorate which means he will have more

opportunities so if you aspire I like this word to aspire is to have a deep

longing to do something you aspire you want to become a certain thing a certain

type of person or maybe to have a certain career a certain way of life the

thing you aspire - so maybe you see something maybe a

person has a nice car or a nice house perhaps you will aspire to having those

things yourself yearn oh yes if you yearn for something it means you want

you desire maybe something you feel in your heart that you really want to

achieve or to have so quite often we have the feeling of yearning you will

yearn for something you want something maybe you yearn for a good job or maybe

you yearn for a faithful partner

ambition another great word here so this particular word ambition an ambition

once again is something that you want to do the thing that you want to do in your

life may be a certain type of job maybe there is a skill that you want to have

maybe you have a natural skill that you want to use in your life you will have

an ambition as a young boy I used to have an ambition to be a radio presenter

I always wanted to be on the radio I thought my future belonged in

broadcasting and being a DJ or a radio presenter so that's what I set my sights

on as a young person however it took many years before I became comfortable

doing that particular thing so everyone has an ambition something that they want

to do something that they see themselves doing in the future back to the live

chat hello hello sama hello sama sama Saeed says nice tutorial

thank you very much I am here live every day I will be here on Wednesday and

Thursday 2 p.m. UK time so yes I am here every day during October Thank You pachu

thank you nee Mon can i watch this live stream

again when it's finished yes you can you can watch the live stream again and also

don't forget there are time codes as well under the video so you can find

your favorite part of the live stream so there will be time codes under the video

in the comments and that is something I add to make it easier for you to watch

later on PAL mera I listen to English music very much there are so many songs

stuck in my head well some people want to perform in their later years maybe a

person wants to be a singer or a performer maybe a dancer maybe a person

wants to do art and become creative so maybe you have the feeling inside you

maybe you feel as if there is something that you want to do in your life of

course there are negative things so people can be good they can be clean

they can be nice people however of course there can be the opposite so

there are negative ways of living your lifestyle might not be so good you might

be untidy so an untidy person is a person who does not take care of their

appearance they are untidy maybe their clothing is dirty maybe they don't take

good care of themselves maybe they don't eat the right food

maybe they don't have good personal hygiene

they are untidy a person who is untidy might be described as unkempt a person

who is unkempt is untidy they are scruffy so a an unkempt person is untidy

unkempt scruffy even dirty you might describe a person as dirty if they don't

take care of their hygiene maybe they never wash their clothes maybe they have

bad breath so they are dirty scruffy and unkempt and untidy however it's worth

mentioning that untidy can also mean the state of where you are living so maybe

your house is untidy so maybe your house is dirty unclean and untidy so a person

can be untidy as an action so maybe they never clean their house the opposite of

course is neat if a person is neat it means they are clean they take care of

themselves they look after their appearance they are very neat a neat

person we can also say clean cut quite often we will use this to describe a man

so maybe a man who looks very clean very tidy we can describe him as clean-cut so

also this often is used to describe a person who has

beard they don't have a beard they are clean-cut presentable a presentable

person is a person who looks clean and tidy they wear nice clothes and they

look presentable quite often if you go for a job interview your appearance is

very important you must clean your face brush your teeth and wear some nice

smart clothing so yes to be presentable means your appearance is agreeable

people will not be upset by your appearance

a person who is well-groomed it sounds like a horse but we're not

talking about horses we're talking about people so a person who is well-groomed

is tidy they are clean and tidy they are well groomed back to the live chat I

will be going soon because it's now seven minutes no eight minutes past

three o'clock and it's Tuesday hello to Anna

hello also to Christina Christina says stinky yes a stinky person a person who

has an odor coming from their body so some people have a pleasant odour

especially if they use aftershave or perfume however some people don't take

care of their body they don't wash regularly so they will stink

they are stinky so a person a person who is stinky has a bad smell or a bad odour

so maybe the smell is coming from their mouth maybe they have bad teeth or maybe

the the smell is coming from their armpits

under their arms there is nothing worse than being near a stinky person nothing

worse yes an unclean person is a person who does not wash they don't take care

of their personal hygiene when we talk about a person's lifestyle their habits

their way of living we can say that a person is stable this also sounds like

it has something to do with horses but it doesn't so when we talk about a

stable person we are talking about someone who has a good job or maybe a

regular job so they are a stable person they have a stable income by that we

mean regular so if you have a regular job with a regular income you have a

stable life maybe you are in a long-term relationship with someone maybe you have

met the love of your life so you are in a stable relationship steady

something is happening regularly the opposite is unstable so if something is

unstable it means it doesn't always go smoothly it is an unstable relationship

or maybe an unstable job and then we have organized oh I like this word to be

organized means that you arrange things in your life very well you are very good

at arranging your life you are a very organized person for example mr. Steve

is a very organized person mr. Steve is very good at organizing his life

even though sometimes he makes plans and then forgets about them sometimes not

often but sometimes so an organized person is a person who is very good at

arranging their life they quite often have a tidy house maybe their house is

clean and tidy they are very well organized an organized person and of

course the opposite of that disorganized and that might describe me to be honest

so some people might describe me as and disorganized mr. Duncan is so

disorganized I don't know what you mean sometimes I can be a little disorganized

but most of the time I think I am very organized sometimes I am disorganized

we all have strange ways we all have strange ways of living we

all have strange things that we enjoy doing some of these things are secret

and we never tell another person some of them are obvious and we can see them

clearly we describe these as an idiosyncrasy so when we talk about

idiosyncrasy that is a great word by the way

a person's edu Singh cracy is their way of doing things things that are maybe

unusual or odd we talk about a person's idiosyncrasy so some people say that I

have a few idiosyncrasies the plural the single is

II do sync receipt a person's strange habits or their way of doing things

another word we can use is quark you have a quark you have an unusual way of

doing something you have a little quirk or maybe a person as an adjective can be

described as quirky some people describe me as quirky a little art a little

humorous sometimes a little strange

eccentric oh yes I have definitely been called

this some of mr. Steve's work colleagues some of the people that Steve works with

often describe me as eccentric I don't know what they mean I don't know what

they mean by that do you think I'm eccentric some people do apparently I

have been called eccentric many times because I'm seen as being a little

unusual maybe odd maybe strange but not in a bad

way so quite often an eccentric person will be unusual or odd but in a nice way

I hope and finally we have the word odd so if someone is eccentric we might also

described them as odd unusual a person who has maybe strange habits or ways of

doing things a lot of people say mr. Duncan your way of teaching is very

eccentric sometimes but it's not a bad thing sometimes standing out can be a

good thing the hardest part is actually doing it it is trust me because I've

been there I've been in that situation Thank You arts be arts be said eccentric

and very creative I'm not sure if you're talking about me I'm not sure eccentric

I do understand that word - thank you very much so do people ever describe you

as eccentric I have been called it many times mr. Duncan I think you are an

organized person because how could you have been able to do a live stream every
