  • Hey Hey and welcome to the slang and idioms section.

  • In these videos we will

  • teach you important slang and idioms we think you should know and use.

  • But what is slang?

  • Slang are informal words that are only spoken with friends.

  • For example, "yo yo yo what's up".

  • I would probably not say that at an interview, but I might say that with friends.

  • Next we have idioms. And idioms are a little more confusing.

  • But why?

  • Well idioms usually mean one thing but say another.

  • For example, "he's under the weather."

  • We're not really talking about under the weather.

  • And we're not really talking about weather.

  • It means that he's not feeling well.

  • So you can see how it's a little more confusing.

  • But we have some great teachers here who will help make it more simple for you.

  • There's no time to waste.

  • Let's watch these videos and I hope you enjoy the slang idiom series.

  • Hi everybody. I'm Esther.

  • And in this video we're going to talk about a slang word.

  • And that word is 'pissed' or 'pissed off'.

  • Now before I start I want to tell you that pissed can actually have several meanings.

  • But today we're going to focus on one meaning

  • and the meaning that I want to focus on is angry.

  • okay?

  • So pissed or pissed off can mean very angry

  • or maybe upset or annoyed.

  • okay

  • So before I explain a little bit more, let's look at these example sentences.

  • The first one is 'I'm pissed'.

  • This just means I'm angry, I'm upset.

  • So again, 'I'm pissed'.

  • The next sentence is very similar 'I'm pissed off'.

  • I'm pissed off.

  • Again these two sentences have the same meaning.

  • They both mean I'm very angry about something.

  • Or I'm very angry at somebody.

  • Please also notice that we have to say pissed in the past tense.

  • We have to say it with -ed.

  • if you say I'm pissed, with the -ed, it actually has a different meaning

  • So again you must say I'm pissed or I'm pissed off to show that you're angry.

  • okay

  • Here's the last sentence.

  • I get pissed off when he lies to me.

  • That means I get angry when he lies to me.

  • Again, I get pissed off when he lies to me.

  • Let's make sure we also notice the pronunciation - pissed off.

  • pissed

  • pissed off

  • pissed

  • And let's look at the example sentence one more time.

  • I get pissed off when he lies to me.

  • And for all the women out there you understand what I mean, right?

  • When someone you care about or someone you love lies to you

  • you get angry or pissed off right?

  • So let's look at a few more example sentences together.

  • I was pissed off when the other car cut in front of me.

  • I was pissed off when the other car cut in front of me.

  • Don't get pissed off it was a mistake.

  • Don't get pissed off it was a mistake.

  • I'm pissed off that he didn't pay me back yet.

  • I'm pissed off that he didn't pay me back yet.

  • Okay so we looked at a couple example sentences.

  • And we learned the word pissed or pissed off.

  • So just remember it's a very common slang if you use it in America or another

  • english-speaking country.

  • Everybody will know that that means you're angry or upset.

  • But remember, you should probably only use this with your friends because

  • if you say this to somebody that you don't know well, it can seem a little bit rude.

  • Okay, so please remember that when you're angry try saying pissed or pissed off.

  • I'm pissed. I'm pissed off.

  • All right well I'll see you in the next video. Bye.

  • girlfriend on white day that is candy so when we bring these two words together I

  • in candy eye candy that means something is sweet and delicious for your eye okay

  • well another way to explain that is you you like to look at something okay you

  • like to look at beautiful attractive and pretty things

  • those things are eye candy all right now both things and people can be eye candy

  • now I'm going to explain here I have two examples the first example your car is

  • eye candy okay so I'm telling someone your car is eye candy that means their

  • car is very attractive very nice-looking okay when I look at it I think wow it's

  • very very beautiful very nice car so I'm gonna describe it as eye candy your car

  • looks good my eyes like it the second example

  • she is eye candy okay now this is a thing but most of the time we describe

  • people as eye candy now I'm a man so I will probably describe women as eye

  • candy she is eye candy so she is hot she is

  • sexy she is very attractive I like to look at her all right I want to look at

  • her she is eye candy so usually Hollywood movies and TV shows

  • they get a lot of actors and actresses that are eye candy okay the man have

  • lots of muscles very handsome so you know when you're watching the show

  • you're very interested in them they are eye candy same with the women very

  • so like Girls Generation okay that's a very popular k-pop group they are eye

  • candy the men like to watch them sing and dance all right to understand I can

  • be a little bit better let's take a look at a few examples all right so the first

  • one Megan Fox was hired as eye candy for transformers Megan Fox was hired as eye

  • candy for transformers I'm enjoying all of this I candy at the beach there are

  • many girls wearing bikinis I'm enjoying all of this I candy at the beach there

  • are many girls wearing bikinis I come to this bar because the bartender's are eye

  • candy I come to this bar because the bartender's are eye candy okay so those

  • were some simple examples of how to use eye candy as I said before very easy to

  • use very easy to understand and a fun expression alright to me in Korea when I

  • watch TV or movies I like to see kim taehee okay whenever I see her I'm very

  • attracted to her I like to watch her she is certainly eye candy for me alright so

  • again this very good expression I hope you use it and I'll see you next time

  • hey this is Bill and I'm just gonna talk to you about some things you can know

  • for when you want to go to a bar to have a drink

  • and a good time all right simple ones today what we have here is a lot of

  • places you see in Western countries they will have a sign that says happy hour

  • now happy hour doesn't mean everyone stands around

  • smiling well hopefully they are because in a happy hour that means all the

  • drinks at a bar are a discount price there's a lower price for drinks maybe

  • you can get a beer one plus one or there are cocktails with

  • a lower price than what is on the normal menu now just because it's called happy

  • hour that doesn't mean it's only one hour it's not just sixty minutes

  • sometimes happy hour can go for two hours but it's still just called happy

  • hour because it really means discount time all right when all the prices are

  • lower than what you see on the normal menu okay we also have this one here it

  • is draught beer okay now this is beer that comes from a keg now a keg is a

  • large metal container that gets delivered to the bars especially okay

  • and they have to connect it so they can pour the beer into a mug what you all

  • know as sang Mex you we say draught beer now a lot of bars offer different

  • varieties of beer on draft they have many different kinds so if you're

  • talking you could ask the bar bartender excuse me what beer do you have on draft

  • that just means what beer can you get in a glass mug and not a bottle

  • right we also have this one right here a round okay

  • now around in a bar means drinks for everyone at your table okay so maybe you

  • say I will buy a round that means you will buy a drink for everyone at your

  • table all right let's look at some more examples sentences of these three things

  • okay let's look at the first example happy hour is from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00

  • p.m. cocktails are half the normal price

  • happy hour is from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

  • cocktails are half the normal price let's move on to the next example

  • draught beer tastes fresher than canned beer draught beer tastes fresher than

  • canned beer and the last example let me buy everyone a round of whiskey shots

  • let me buy everyone a round of whiskey shots so as you can see these are some

  • good things to know if you plan to go out drinking and your do remember happy

  • hour can be longer than an hour so read the sign carefully and just know you get

  • a lower price on the drinks you want to have so it's good to come for happy hour

  • and pay a discounted price and then also draught beer the beer that comes in a

  • nice mug and not a bottle alright it's very popular because many people you

  • can't get draught beer unless you go out for a to a bar and then also around hey

  • I'll buy a round makes you very popular with everyone in your group thank you
