I heard that there was a huge blackout in India a while ago. I remember that when we were kids here in Canada, if the power went off, we used to go yay! let's light some candles no school nowadays it would be more like ah man! my tablet's almost dead! oh my God! My cell phone's almost dead. how am I gonna recharge this thing? All kidding aside Vya I sensed a certain urgency in your question and I am more than happy to share some of my experience my teaching experience that I have with advanced speakers of English including English teachers So Vya, take heart, you're not alone! I really recommend that you start recording yourself and play it back, and analyse what you are saying when you're talking in English Here are a few examples of mistakes that Indians might make when they're speaking A lot and many mean the same thing so try to eliminate redundancies in your speaking Here's another don't forget your articles the new iPad and a couple of months Also, It should be passive the iPad can't release itself yet! So to finish off here Vya I understand that India and so many other countries take for example, shopping center and call it shopping I'm going to the shopping X your outfit is so fashion X They are dialects of English and man it's addictive Put me in a room full of non-native English speakers for a few weeks and I might end up saying "there's a lot many kinds of English" X "your hairs are so beautiful". X OK,my next question is from Tam Vietnam or Tom from Vietnam Is there anyway to understand or to ask the conversation with the foreigner, if we cannot hear all the word clearlys? Thank you! So to sum up TAM, try to remember You have got to: formal; you gotta: informal make them: formal; make'em: informal talking: formal; talkin': informal BBC/CNN: what are you doing? familiar: Waddar you/ya doing? street talk: Watchya doing? Anyways everybody I enjoyed doing this video I know we're all swimming in a huge ocean of information and sometimes we feel that there's a huge current pulling us in the wrong direction But hopefully my tips here can help you to swim to safer shores Bye for now! Later alligator!
