husband's music room so my husband plays

guitar some and he writes songs and so

this is where he does it so you can see

his guitar here but yeah I just wanna

while we're waiting some person

are people to join and I'll just start

talking about some things that I think

are really important one thing I wanted

to talk to you guys about is the

importance of making English a part of

your life like your whole life okay so

when I think back about all the most

effective English learners like all the

people who really became fluent quickly

those were people who looked at English

not just as a an academic subject and

not just as a something to be studied

but they looked at English like a whole

culture to adopt they wanted to learn

everything about English and English

became their life right so oftentimes at

the beginning of the semester I would

meet new students and some of these

students would tell me they have no

American friends they have no they don't

want to do any activities they only want

to stay in their room and study their

books and that I always thought to

myself those students are gonna have a

difficult time but those students on the

other hand who said yeah I have an

American roommate I go to activities I'm

excited about American culture I want to

learn as much as I can I want to make

friends I want to try new things

IRA myself those are the students who

will do well and every semester those

are the students who did really well the

ones who looked at English learning not

just as something to be studied but

something as like your whole life so um

so yeah these these are the students who

do the best so that's what I want to

tell you guys tonight

um among other things if you have

questions go ahead and chat those to me

okay I see a few people are on and it's

not telling me

it's on so hey if you're out there hi

but go ahead and chat me your questions

but but yeah what I want to tell you

guys tonight is that language learning

is not just an academic study it's right

it's way more than that the best

language learners are the ones who have

fun with it and they make it a part of

their whole life they look at it as an

opportunity to make new friends and to

experience new cultures they want to try

new things and so you might be asking

well how do I do that I live in a

neighborhood where nobody speaks English

or maybe you live in a country where

nobody speaks English right how do you

do that well number one I would say that

you need to find an online community of

people who speak English and you need to

talk to those people okay

a big thing I recommend is just you join

the conversation so you have interests

you have hobbies you like many things

maybe you like fortnight or maybe you

like I don't know basketball NBA okay

what you need to do is you need to find

groups that are only in English to talk

to those people about those subjects in

English okay it's okay that your English

isn't perfect when you talk to these

people you want to make sure that

English is a part of your whole life not

just an academic subject to be studied

right so let's say you're into NBA all

right let's say you love I don't know

LeBron James right he's the king okay

you love LeBron James so you want to

find maybe a Facebook group or some

people on Twitter who are talking about

LeBron James and you join the

conversation and you get excited right

this is something you know something

about you know all about LeBron James

you know every statistic about him you

know all of his information and you love

talking about LeBron

right okay so that's the perfect time to

talk in English or communicate in

English with people about this and your

English will grow when you're talking

about things that you love I promise

right um so my second language is

Spanish and I'm just like intermediate

in Spanish right I lived in Panama for a

while and I studied Spanish there today

it's not as great because it's been a

long time since I've used Spanish but

when I was there whenever I would find a

subject that I got excited about like

for me it's travel so whenever I talked

about travel with people oh my goodness

the Spanish would come out and out of

now I love talking about travel in any

language right so if I'm excited to talk

to somebody then my language is gonna

come out a lot and I'm gonna be excited

to speak in that language so that's what

you need to do in English you need to

find people find your people right find

your people there on the internet they

speak English and talk to them about the

things that make you excited but talk to

them in English right if you only ever

talk to people in your own language

you're never going to improve your

English skills okay

to tell you let's see would you guys

so chat me would you rather hear about

grammar or increasing your vocabulary

anybody I'm just gonna pick one if you

don't chat me and tell me grammar or

vocabulary what do you want to hear

about tonight okay I'm gonna go with

vocabulary grammar Carlos thank you

Thank You Carlos you're being awesome

tonight all right I'll talk to you about

grammar tonight um okay can I just tell

you that grammar is my favorite subject

to teach I know you probably think I'm

crazy because most people don't like

grammar but I love grammar okay I love

it um I love talking about grammar

I love teaching grammar most people are

nervous about grammar or they think it's

boring I think it's exciting okay you

know why because grammar is in

everything right and also I love math

and grammar reminds me of math and so

like it kind of has that logical math

brain that's what grammar does for me

and I love it

um Carlos since you said grammar would

you rather talk about verbs or would you

rather talk about what else

buh-buh-buh-buh or subject and object

verbs or subject and object

giving choices tonight verbs cool

alright I'm going to talk a little bit

about the difference between progressive

verbs or continuous verbs and simple

tense verbs okay

so progressive verbs anybody know an

example of a progressive or continuous

verb can you give me one what's an

example of a progressive or continuous

verb alright nobody okay so an example

is am talking I am talking is a

continuous verb right so it's it's two

verbs together mix a verb phrase the

first one is going to be a be verb so

that's where your amour is or are comes

in and the second one's going to be an

ING verb okay am talking is running are

walking those are all progressive verbs

okay let's move over now to simple tense

verbs simple tense verbs are verbs like

what can you give me an example of a

simple tense verb chat me who knows what

a simple tense verb might be who can

check me a simple tense verb if

progressive is am walking or am talking

let's go with that I am talking then

simple is talk or talks right okay so

we're just going to talk about present

simple so the difference between the

continuous am talking and the simple

talk is really kind of different so

simple tense verbs are usually states of

being or something that's always true or

doesn't change or it's true for a long

period of time another way you use

simple tense verbs is it's a repeated

action okay

so I talked with my husband every day I

talked with my husband every day so

that's a repeated action that happens

every day so I'm going yeah I work every

day great one fall bear that's a great

example I work every day so it's a

repeated action that happens every day

that's a simple tense verb let's talk

about the progressive I am talking right

now so the way I like to think of

progressive or continuous yeah woohoo

the ball bear is that it's continuing

right now okay so it's continuing right

now it's happening at this very moment

that's what a progressive or a

continuous verb is so I am talking right

now right I am talking but I talk to

students regularly

I talked to students regularly I am

talking right now okay this is making

sense so one so let me go back to this

the simple tense verbs are usually

permanent or they're a state of being or

maybe yeah it's something that's that's

true maybe that's always true or it's a

repeated action but over here with

continuous verbs it's something maybe

that's temporary it's only happening for

a little time right I will stop talking

soon I will stop talking

and so so that is it's not always true

right that I that I am talking I am

talking right now it's continuing but

it's not always true I'm not always

talking right I will be sleeping tonight

so yeah I'm watching you right now

there you go I'm watching you right now

so that's an example of something that's

temporary right when the video goes off

you won't be watching me anymore and so

that's a temporary action it stops and

so that's why you use progressive tense

but if something is always true or if

it's repeated then you use a simple

hence for cool does that help me answer

your question about progressive and

simple tense verbs and probably I need

to make another video when I want to

talk about perfect and perfect

continuous because that's a lot that's a

long conversation and I will get into

that sometime hey but hey I just want to

say thank you for watching and I have

some special announcements okay I'm
