Difficulty: 0

welcome today 31 of 31 days of learning English in October 2019

hello everyone don't worry this isn't my Halloween mask this is how I normally

look so I hope I didn't scare you too much hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in

England how are you today are you okay I hope so are you happy I hope so

well we've done it we have made it all away to the end of October I have been

with you every day during this month to celebrate a big thing yes because today

is my anniversary today is the day when it all started

happy birthday to my youtube channel

yes it is today my 13th anniversary can you believe it 13 years on YouTube I've

been doing this making videos teaching English and of course in the last few

years I have been making my live streams and that's the reason why I decided to

do something special for October to celebrate my 13th anniversary on YouTube

and and can I say can I say a big thank you to YouTube for sending me a lovely

message and a gift for Who am I kidding of course I didn't get a gift or a

message from YouTube I got nothing however I have you and

that is the most important thing of all so welcome everyone here we go 13 years

ago it all started I can't believe it I can't believe it's been 13 years ago

however however yes it it was on this day 13 years ago that it all happened

can you believe it I can't believe it was 13 years ago today I was still in

China when it all happened

you see you now hmm so here okay it's okay

welcome to mr. Duncan's first ever edited video isn't it exciting well it's

been another busy week and of course as usual I've been in the school teaching

English that's my job I think one of the most common questions I'm asked during

my time here in China by my students is how can I improve my English

there's one thing I've noticed my fingers have gone dead look my fingers

have got a strange ready blue purpley pink color not very good I think I think

if I stay outside much longer I think they will fall off hi everybody this is

mr. Duncan in England how are you today are you okay I hope so

are you happy I hope so welcome to the very first episode of my series of

English teaching videos you know the world of English is a fun and exciting

place to be I'm so glad you could join us for

another lesson why do we need phonetics the reason why we need a phonetic code

is because some English letters have more than one sound and because some

letters when joined together in a word actually create a new sound of their own

also there is the silent letter that can appear within a word

13 years on YouTube 13 years teaching English to the world

for free

yes it is true today is the 13th anniversary of my YouTube channel being

created it was way back in 2006 I was still living and working in China and I

decided to set up my YouTube channel in fact it wasn't me who had the idea it

was actually my friend Zhang Wei who actually told me that there was a new

video site where you can actually not only watch videos but also make your own

videos so in fact it was Jiang way my friend in China who actually told me all

about YouTube so I created my own YouTube channel and the rest as they say

is 13 years of this I suppose so welcome thank you very much got lots of things

to show you today I suppose I should mention one or two things before we get

underway Halloween it is Halloween today and I have been asked by many people if

I can show mr. Steve looking very scary so here it is

for all those who who want to see this very famous clip of mr. Steve looking

very scary because of course today is Halloween

did it get colder in here or is it just me I think it's you mr. Steve definitely

maybe you've left the window open perhaps so I hope you enjoyed that we

will be going back in time today showing quite a few video clips also we will

take a look at what we were doing two years ago today on Halloween with our

live stream so we will see more of mr. Steve in his Halloween costume and also

me as well dressed as Frankenstein a little bit later on however let's have a

look at the live chat because yes even though it is the final day of English in

October don't worry I am here with you now hello - grace chin congratulations -

grace hello grace you are first on the last day of October and also the last

day of learning English in October 2009 teen so congratulations grace

fact this is the 31st day that I've been with you live however everything will

come to an end today and things will return to normal

a doesn't exist nidia says hello mr. Duncan from Paris I

hope you are okay I feel sad that today is the last day of your live streams but

thank you for all the help you have given us thank you very much that's very

kind of you I will not get upset I have said that I won't get upset even though

it sounds as if my voice is already starting to crack under the pressure of

this being my last day of 31 days of October and English however there will

be more live lessons don't worry this is not the end of me I'm sure there will be

people out there who will feel very disappointed at that news so no I am NOT

going away but there will be live streams they will continue but they

won't be every day so that is the difference the weather is lovely today

would you like to have a look outside look it's ever so nice outside it's very

or terminal now we haven't got any sunshine unfortunately however it is

rather nice outside you can see that everything is looking looking very all

terminal today it really does look as if autumn is in the air so we are talking

about Halloween I suppose something else that is just as scary as Halloween hmm

now today in the UK this was supposed to happen however it is not happening

anymore so today it isn't happening although it might happen next year but

that's a long way off so we don't have to worry about that so this is something

I've been waiting to do all month so now it is time to say goodbye to this

for a while because today was the day when it was supposed to happen but as

you may know it is not happening today so can I just say goodbye that is so

satisfying goodbye to this that feels so good

however there is always bad news after good news however we do have a general

election taking place in December so we have to choose a new government so even

though we don't have to do that horrible thing we have another horrible thing

that we have to do unfortunately so there will be one of these in

December on this December the 12th there we there will be one of these oh dear

so we get rid of one thing we push one thing away and then we get something

else which is just as annoying to be honest hello

sue Ellie hello also Eric thank you Eric hello also to Christelle thank you very

much for your greeting thank you for all the work you've done during this month

thank you very much it's been my pleasure someone asked earlier mr.

Duncan what memories do you have of your 13 years now there are so many memories

so many moments and some of them I suppose have left

nice impressions whilst others have not I suppose the best time was reaching 50

lessons so when I was making my series of English lessons one of my most

favourite lessons to make was when I went to Samuel Johnson's birthplace in

Litchfield so I enjoyed doing that but of course I suppose my time in China

I first started making my videos in China worse was quite good fun as well I

enjoyed that possibly the worst memory is when I was attacked by a man I was

doing some filming for one of my lessons and this very aggressive man came up to

me and started shouting and screaming at me

he was asking why I was filming I wasn't filming anything that I shouldn't but he

asked me and he became very angry and he started to kick my equipment which can

be very painful so he he started to to smash my camera equipment and also my

microphone he started to kick it and throw it around and then he threatened

to hit me so that was probably the worst part of doing this over the past 13

years fortunately most of my experiences here on YouTube have been happy ones

however sometimes I do put my life at risk to do this so not everything has

been plain sailing oh I like that word if something is plain sailing it means

it is easy or very simple something that is achieved without much effort so doing

this is not always easy there are moments when I have difficulty worried

even the occasional tear so yes it does happen don't worry I am NOT going away

this is just the final day of October however I will be back with live streams

I am NOT leaving YouTube I have to say this again and again I'm not going away

however today we are celebrating my 13th anniversary 13 years I've been doing

this can you believe it I can't believe it between you and me

the time has passed very quickly so today is Halloween I suppose it would be

a good time to talk about some of my early lessons so we are going to take a

look at an excerpt from one of my early English lessons that was recorded many

years ago and this lesson is all about fear and being afraid fear is an

emotional reaction to something we are afraid of we express fear in many ways

for instance our heart might beat festa maybe we begin to bite our nails

perhaps we shiver or maybe we close our eyes so we cannot see what is happening

we can express fear by what we say and the way we say it for example I don't

want to go in there it's too dark someone is following me maybe they will

rob me I don't want to go to the dentist I'm too scared I have to see my boss

today and I'm not looking forward to it

did you know that you can be afraid of almost anything there is another word

for fear we can say that we have a phobia if you have a phobia then this

means that you will always be afraid of that particular thing

there are many phobias around such as

agoraphobia the fear of open spaces or going outdoors

acrophobia the fear of being high up from the ground the dizzy feeling you

get when you're high up is called vertigo

algophobia a fear of pain arachnophobia to be afraid of spiders claustrophobia a

fear of being in a small space for example trapped in a cupboard

hydrophobia a fear of water

pyrrha phobia a fear of fire or being burned

ronita phobia a fear of frogs

triskaidekaphobia the fear of number 13 for example sitting at a table with 13

people try Panna phobia a fear of injections or needles xenophobia

a fear of strangers foreigners or foreign cultures

what are you afraid of what makes you siient boo if fear suddenly happens then

we normally call this shock you did not expect that event to happen so you will

be even more scared and anxious there are many sentences that can be

used for showing the action of being shocked for example you frightened the

life out of me

who shaking like a journey you put the willies up me I almost jumped out of my

skin you nearly gave me a heart attack

sometimes at night we have dreams that make us afraid we call these particular

dreams nightmare or bad dreams in our mind the scary event seems real

so our fear will feel just as real do you ever have nightmares did it get

colder in here or is it just me I think it might be you mr. Steve definitely you

so I hope you enjoyed that a blast from the past as they say we went back in

time with one of my very early lessons in fact that particular lesson was made

in 2008 yes 11 years ago that particular lesson and yes I know people are going

to say mr. Duncan you looked so young back then I think so it is now half past

2 and this is the final day of 31 days of learning English in October and I

hope you are ok I hope you are feeling good soon we will go soon it will be the

end the end is nigh as they say the end is coming certainly for October anyway

so the the end is approaching soon we will have to bring the curtain down so

when you bring the curtain down it means you bring something to an end

or to a close you bring the curtain down you bring the curtain down on something

you end your performance you end the thing you are doing you bring

the curtain down also I suppose we can say conclude so when you conclude

something it comes to an end you end the thing it comes to a natural ending it

will conclude the end of a story it will conclude so when you finish reading a

story the story will conclude it has concluded so there's a great word

conclude finish come to the end it has been done you can say add you I like

that you can say add you and quite often people will say add you as a humorous

way of saying goodbye so you might say add you add you to you and you and you

you can call it a day if you call it a day it means you decide to stop the

thing you are doing you have decided to bring something to an end the thing is

about to end you have decided to call it a day

so this is a great expression it means that you finish the thing sometimes it

can mean quit or end or maybe stop something voluntarily you call it a day

maybe at the end of your working day you have decided that you don't want to do

anymore work maybe you are feeling tired you might say to your work colleague I

think it's time to call it a day it's time to finish my work for today so lots

of ways of using that we can also cut loose if you cut loose it means you

leave you go maybe you walk out you stop seeing someone

you cut them loose so if you end something finish something if you stop

talking to someone or maybe if you break a relationship you will cut loose cut

loose you will conclude conclude the end of a story is the conclusion so to

conclude as I said earlier is to finish or end something comes to a natural

ending it will conclude so today we will conclude our 31 days of learning English

I suppose also you can say finish today we will finish our special live stream

season so today we will finish our series of special live streams they will

come to an end they will finish they will be no more so to finish is also to

complete something so if you finish something you complete the thing you are

doing so today we have come to the end we will finish our special season of

live streams to celebrate my 13th year hello to pal mirror hello to neo zero

thank you for joining me today it is the last day of October my special series of

live streams will end during this month however in November there will be more

live streams the only difference is they won't be everyday so that is the main

difference I will give you some details later on about when our next live stream

will be and also there will be some news in that live stream so the next time I'm

on which I will tell you about later there will be some news about what is

happening with my live streams there will be some good news and some bad news

I think it's fair to say hello to Anna hello to Irene I think there are some

moderators here did I see Luis Mendez earlier I think I saw Luis Mendez so

Luis is one of our moderators so yes he was here definitely let's go back in

time to take a look at a video clip from one of my full English lessons this is

something that I've been asked to show lots of people like this I don't know

why maybe it's because of my superb acting I don't know so we will now take

a look at another clip from one of my lessons and this is taken from full

English number 22

breakfast time my favorite time of the day here we go again

another breakfast with mr. Slurpee I really want to tell him how annoying his

noisy eating is and look at that turret that's not how you make porridge what on

earth is he wearing there a Wolverine t-shirt for goodness sake

hello up man about 50 years old I really want to tell him how annoying here but

it will only hurt his feelings get him filling his smug face with milky

porridge and he never stops going on about English

is there a problem mr. Duncan for crying out loud do you have to eat

your porridge like that it's so annoying and that's not even how you make

porridge it's too weak you always add too much milk and what's

with the t-shirt it's a comic book character you are not a child anymore

forgiveness sake grow up you were fifty years old

start acting like an adult you are so immature and childish it's not just one

thing it's everything about you and another thing you never stop talking

about English all day you go on and on about English this and English that I

really can't take it anymore

you want to hurt me go right ahead if it makes you feel any better I'm an easy

target yeah you're right I talk too much I also listen too much I could be a

cold-hearted cynic like you but I don't like to hurt people's feelings well you

think what you like about me I'm not changing I like I like me my view is

likely my students like me because I'm the real article what you

see is what you get

acting

did you enjoy my oscar-winning acting there I think that was pretty good

so thank you for your requests to show that mr. Lomax a lot of people miss mr.

Lomax he might be back one day who knows who knows what will happen in the future

unfortunately I cannot see the future I am NOT a clairvoyant and come to think

of it no one can see the future to be honest

hello pal Meera hello Fernando Fernando nice to see you here hello also - Thomas

hello Thomas nice to see you here thanks for joining me today it is the final day

of 31 days of learning English and of course it is also my 13th anniversary on

YouTube

I can't believe it you know what I can't believe it I can't believe I've been

doing this for 13 years it really does seem amazing I can't believe it I really

can't I I can still remember that day when I first created my youtube channel

I was still in China and it was something that I was doing just to pass

the time so when I wasn't teaching I thought well maybe I can make some

videos on YouTube this brand new website where you can upload videos it was all

very exciting however did you know that my early lessons were very poor quality

now when I say poor quality I'm not talking about myself I'm talking about

the image so here is the actual size of the image when we first started

uploading our videos to YouTube that's it so there it is that's the actual size

and quality of the very early YouTube videos and you can see me there talking

and that particular video was made in China when I was still living there and

that was one of my first videos that I made and uploaded to YouTube but you can

see how small the picture is and you can also see that the quality isn't very

good so technology has come a very long way in all those years now you can see

me in SuperDuper high-definition quality not only that but we can also do this

live so maybe one of the biggest changes to occur on YouTube besides the image

quality is also the fact that we can do this live isn't it incredible so I can

stand here in my studio in England and also I can talk to you

live on the Internet isn't it amazing I think so

Berlin hello Berlin congratulations for your 13 years on YouTube thank you very

much it is lovely to see you here yes I've been here for 13 years doing all of

this for free I haven't charged anyone for anything so

everything I've done over 13 years is free including this live stream so

everything that you see on my youtube channel has been done for free but you

are welcome to make a donation if you would like to you don't have to I know

some people don't want to or don't like to or they can't afford it that's okay

it's alright I'm not begging although some people might think that however I

would love my work to continue forever and ever and ever so please if you'd

like to make a donation to PayPal or right here today on the super chat it's

up to you hello mr. Duncan I am dill shad I am with you from Kurdistan

welcome Dilshad and it's very nice to see you here today so we are talking

about this one of the subjects we are talking about is ending and also

Halloween now I thought it would be interesting to go back in time two years

ago to one of the live streams that I did with mr. Steve sadly unfortunately

mr. Steve can't be here today I know it's a shame unfortunately mr. Steve

can't be here today however what we are going to do is go back in time and show

you mr. Steve and also myself explaining what Halloween is all about

what is it all about so there you can see our costumes and here is the video

Halloween is all about being scary it's about the afterlife is this not mr.

Duncan is Halloween about the afterlife well it's it's sort of what it's sort of

roots in now I thought it was all about kids just being very annoying knocking

on your door and trying to bribe you how they're giving them giving giving sweets

to them yeah but that the whole tradition of it goes back hundreds of

years to the middle oh is it time do we got to talk about the history of

Halloween now as we might as well oh right

well we're here aren't we we're here we're here we might as well do it we're

dressed up we've gone through a lot of effort and mr. Duncan wasn't lying when

he said it's taken him three days to put all this together it has he's been

working very hard to make this look scary for Halloween of course not

everybody celebrates Halloween it's more of a sort of a Western sort of tradition

America England but of course more countries in the world are doing it now

and from what I understand mr. Duncan I'm sure you've got a lot more knowledge

about this than me the history dates back hundreds of hundreds of years back

to the dark Middle Ages in the UK and it's all about it's all about what this

fascination that we all have human beings have of what happens after we die

yes is there an afterlife and if so what goes on there and Halloween is really

about sort of saying prayers for the dead I think that's where it originally

comes from that is it's it was actually a pagan ritual so this predates things

like Christianity being introduced to this country so it goes back many yes

you're right hundreds of years and over the years Halloween has become something

different so originally it was called All Hallows Eve

which much which was the period of time leading up to all of the spirits and the

ghosts walking around I still can't believe we did that

did we really do that I can't believe that we actually did that I was so

involved watching that I actually forgot I I became very engaged by that video I

actually forgot I was doing a livestream oh hello there 10 minutes away from 3

o'clock and we are live for the final day it's the final day of 31 days don't

worry though there will be more live streams and I will tell you now when the

livestream will be next on YouTube it will be wow this is exciting isn't it

the next livestream will be Sunday the third of November so the next livestream

here on YouTube will be Sunday the third of November 2 p.m. UK time so that

should be easy to remember so the next time I am with you on YouTube live will

be on Sunday the 3rd of November so I hope you will join me then and I will be

back on Sunday with lots of interesting information and also I will be telling

you what I am going to do with my live streams so I hope you can join me on

Sunday lots of things to reveal on that day during the livestream Alamgir says

it is going too quickly oh I'm sorry about that I can't do

anything about time sometimes I wish I could stop time or maybe slow it down so

it's not going show quickly oh I wish I could turn back time

as he not septic system in a sturdy opinion Eastern Europe and see never

done with Snee up do it turn back time I do it all for free you are right I don't

charge anything for doing this and that is the way it's been for the past 13

years when I first started doing this I want to show you something else if I can

find it I have a lot of stuff to show you today so many things to let you see

do we have something else yes we do the final day of October way back in

2013 I'm going to end with that in a few moments not just yet don't worry because

I still have some more words to show you so when something comes to an end when

something finishes we can call it the conclusion so conclusion describes the

action it says that something has ended there has been a conclusion so the

conclusion is the ending and today there will be a conclusion to my 31 days of

teaching English in October the conclusion is coming soon also we might

say the ending so this also describes something as it finishes or as it

becomes completed as it has been complete it is the ending so maybe the

ending of a film or maybe the ending of a book maybe the ending of a song so

maybe a part that appears at the very end of something so the ending is coming

soon soon we will go I suppose you might also

use this word as well the finale I like this word now this isn't an English word

finale actually comes from Italian the Italian language so the finale finale is

the ending the last show the final performance is the finale the finale

quite often we will use this word also to mean the last act so before you end

you have the last act and that is often described as the finale the ending you

can cross the finish line so if you cross the finish line it means you have

reached completion you have completed the thing that you are doing you have

reached the finish line so maybe in a race if you are running in a race you

will cross the finish line also we can use this as a phrase to describe

completing something coming to the end of something you cross the finish line

you have completed the thing you are doing we are coming towards the end of

the road so you can say end of the road to mean the conclusion something is

finishing we have reached the end of the road we have come to the end so the end

of the road is a great expression it means you have finished the thing you

are doing you have reached the end you are coming to the end of the thing you

are doing you have reached the end of the road so you might be heading towards

the end of the row or you may have reached the end of the

road very soon my special season of live streams will reach the end of the world

of the world of the road not the world it's not the end of the world yet you'll

be pleased to hear we are approaching the end of the line quite often if you

travel by railway you will find that the final destination is often described as

the end of the line so when you reach the final destination during a train

journey they will often say this is the end of the line you have reached the end

of the railway track and of course the end when you reach the end there is

nowhere else to go you can't go any further than the end

that is it you can leave by yourself you can walk off so if you walk off it means

you leave you go away you quit something whilst doing it so maybe you walk off

the field or maybe you walk off for stage or you might just be feeling a

little unwell and you go out for a walk we can say that you walk off your

illness or you walk off your tiredness so there are many ways of using this

particular phrase you will depart leave go away you depart so when you say

goodbye when you leave maybe you are at the railway station saying goodbye

I to your friends and they are on the train they are going away they will

depart they are departing they are going away this word can also mean die as well

so if you die you depart you leave this mortal coil you exit this vale of tears

leave I think we all know what this means

recently people have been using this word to talk about a certain subject

here in the UK so if you leave it means you go away you you walk out you depart

you leave soon I must leave unfortunately it's not very

nice is it I feel a little emotional I don't know about you but I feel a little

emotional finishing this last day of October because it's been a great month

I've really enjoyed it satury know in the first youtube the

frame was much smaller because the resolution of the image was very low in

fact I think in the early days I think it was about I want to say 240 P so that

was the resolution of the actual image which is very small when you compare it

to this beautiful high definition this wonderful clear picture the very early

picture on YouTube was not very clear and also not very large so because it

wasn't very large it always looked like the quality was poor unfortunately I

will be going soon oh it's so sad I don't want to go can I just stay here

all the time can I just stay here live forever wouldn't that be nice

before I go don't forget you can donate you can leave a donation if you want and

that will then allow me to do this more often

I will be back with you on Sunday by the way with all the details of what is

happening next and there will be a lot of things happening some changes some

good changes and maybe some not-so-good changes however there will be changes

taking place during November I hope you've enjoyed today Thank You Irene

thank you to satury know Thank You Rosa apparently the second of November is a

holiday and we usually go to cemeteries Oh cemeteries do you mean cemeteries

where dead people lie sleeping under the ground I think so

hello Sara so I think that's that's very suitable for Halloween don't you think

they have a similar thing in China in China they have a special ceremony

called Tomb Sweeping where they go to the the tombs or the graves of their

relatives and they will clean the tomb they will polish everything to make it

look nice so yes that I think that happens everywhere in fact there are

many places that do that thank you Chris Dale Thank You Alan Ghia thank you also

to neo zero mr. Duncan your persistence is admirable thank you everyone and mr.

Duncan thank you too I've really enjoyed today I've enjoyed

end I will be back with you on Sunday the 3rd of November 2 p.m. UK time so

inevitable expected preordained destined it was on the cards it was as certain as

the sunrise it was odd zon affirm bet a likely event nothing could stop it

yes it's the final day of dunk Toba tomorrow will be the first day of no

dunk member is this the end of mr. Duncan am I about to disappear forever

do cats really fall in all fours find out the answer to these questions and

much more on today's last ever dunctober day

I have a good idea let's have a word of the day yes I thought it would be fun to

have a word of the day this is not only a word for you to learn but also to use

try to use it today as often as you can today's word is decline the word decline

has more than one meaning it can mean a slow fall or drop in something if the

number of people doing something has dropped then we can say that there has

been a decline the word decline also means to refuse something to say no to

an offer from someone I'm sorry but I'm going to have to decline your offer I'm

afraid he declined my offer the client could also mean to refuse to

do something the president declined to comment on the wall see how many times

you can use decline today is English a perfect language this is a question I'm

often asked why is English so popular I suppose you could ask that question

about many things from my own viewpoint I think English acts as a middle ground

it has become a common form of language it is by nature a language created from

the very best of many other languages it is a means to share and most importantly

it is a way of joining people together English is a common language that is

like us always evolving to answer the question no English is not a perfect

language it has its flaws and idiosyncrasies but from my standpoint at

least it serves as a means to an end people sharing their thoughts and

experiences and the result of this perhaps a little more understanding a

bit more tolerance and hey who knows perhaps even a little piece that would

be just dandy

well what can I say this month has been quite an adventure

31 days of English lessons and hopefully a few smiles as well I wish you luck

with your studies wherever you are in the world stay happy and enjoy English
