  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Are you trying to learn English on your own and are you looking for ways to practice English

  • when you don't have someone to practice with?

  • Well in this video I'm going to show you ten crazy and fun ways to practice English by

  • yourself.

  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Welcome to this video where I'm gonna help you learn ten ways to practice English by

  • yourself, but before we get started if this is your first time here don't forget to click

  • the subscribe button below, give me a thumbs up at some point during this video, and I

  • would love it if you guys could share this video with a friend.

  • So let's get started.

  • Ten ways that you can practice English all by yourself.

  • So this first one is called, "Narrate Your Life".

  • So this is how it works.

  • Either out loud or in your head you say what you are doing.

  • So for instance if I was doing, "Narrate Your Life" in order to practice my English I would

  • be saying this:

  • I am walking in my lawn.

  • I am walking under some trees.

  • The trees are getting their leaves.

  • I am walking towards some flowers.

  • I think I might pick some flowers for my wife.

  • So you kind of get the point.

  • When you do "Narrate Your Life", as you go through your day, either mentally, in your

  • head, or out loud you say all of the things that you are doing.

  • This is great practice.

  • So, "Narrate Your Life", number one.

  • So the second one is called, "Label Everything" I'm not sure if you're familiar with post-it

  • notes, but they're little pieces of paper that are sticky.

  • And this one works better inside, I'm just doing it outside for fun.

  • But what you do is you write down all of the vocabulary words, maybe in your kitchen, and

  • you label everything with the post-it note.

  • So that's a mirror.

  • This one says door.

  • This one says door handle.

  • This one says window.

  • This one says tire.

  • Then you go and look at all of them.

  • If you do this inside, not outside like crazy Bob the Canadian, you can leave them on for

  • a few days.

  • Label everything in your kitchen.

  • Label everything in your living room.

  • Label everything in your bathroom.

  • And if you remove the post-it note once you are sure that you know the word, it's just

  • a great way to learn vocabulary.

  • So that was number two, label everything.

  • This third way that you can practice English alone is to use technology like Google Home

  • or Siri.

  • So this is my son's room.

  • He doesn't like it when I use his Google Home, but we can use it to ask about the weather.

  • Hey Google!

  • What's the weather like in Toronto today?

  • In Toronto today, it'll be cloudy with a forecasted high of 17 and a low of 7.

  • Currently it's 17 and mostly cloudy.

  • Thanks!

  • So that's….

  • I aim to please!

  • So there…. , it's not perfect but you can definitely use this technology to practice

  • your English.

  • So a really cool fourth way to practice your English alone is to use a random picture generating

  • website like this one.

  • You can do this on a computer or on your phone, and I'll put a link below to the website that

  • does this.

  • What it will do is give you a random picture and then you can describe it in English.

  • So for instance here I could say, "It is a picture of the coast.

  • It looks like the ocean has a lots of mist today."

  • Then if I hit refresh it generates a new picture.

  • Here is some sushi.

  • I am hungry.

  • Let's hit it one more time.

  • This is a picture of a city.

  • It looks like it might be New York.

  • So you can see how this really pushes the boundaries of the vocabulary that you know,

  • and it prompts you, it pushes you to speak out loud and to basically express yourself

  • in English.

  • It's just a really good thing to do.

  • So that was number four.

  • Talk about random pictures.

  • Again link in the description below to this website.

  • There's actually quite a few of them that help you do this.

  • So for this fifth one you need a pen, you need an article in English with a lot of vocabulary

  • that you wanna learn, and you need a piece of paper.

  • And we're gonna copy the article onto the piece of paper, but, there's a little bit

  • of a difference here than how you would normally do it.

  • We're going to put the magazine at one end of a table.

  • We're gonna put the pen and paper at the other end of the table, and here's what you need

  • to do.

  • You need to find the article that you want to copy, sorry my dog just hit the tripod,

  • I think it'll be ok.

  • Let me just move things back.

  • You've all met Oscar right?

  • So I'm gonna copy this article right here.

  • So I'm gonna read that it say, "Mash butter in a small bowl...", and then I'm gonna run

  • over here and I'm gonna write down, "Mash butter in a small bowl...", and then I'm gonna

  • run back over here and I'm gonna read the next sentence, "..with one tablespoon dill

  • and quarter teaspoon each salt and pepper", and I'm gonna run over here.

  • I think you get the point don't you.

  • You need to copy the entire article from the magazine to the piece of paper and keep them

  • really separate from each other.

  • It'll really help put those vocabulary words into your brain.

  • So that was number five.

  • Copying an Article.

  • A sixth way to practice your English by yourself is to talk to Google Docs.

  • I don't know if you have Google Docs, but if you don't you should sign up, it's free,

  • and I can go to Tools and I can choose Voice Typing.

  • When I click on this microphone it will start to listen to everything that I say.

  • It is a great way to practice pronunciation.

  • I really like it.

  • So a seventh really cool way to practice English by yourself is to take your phone at the end

  • of the day and record yourself talking in English about some of the words and phrases

  • that you learned that day.

  • Then use that recording as your alarm clock for the next morning.

  • Most phones, under the alarm clock setting, you can have it play an audio file or a video

  • file.

  • So talk about, in English, some of the words and phrases you learned that day, just before

  • you go to bed, and then set it as your alarm clock so the next morning when you wake up

  • it's the first thing you hear.

  • An eighth way to learn English all by yourself is to type sentences into Google Translate

  • in your own language and then listen to Google reading them back to you.

  • So for instance, if I here click French and say, "Je veux manger une pizza.", and then

  • in English I can click here, "I want to eat a pizza."

  • It's not perfect, but it's a great way, not just to translate sentences, but to learn

  • new sentences.

  • So here I can type, "Je suis un homme."

  • "I am a man."

  • I am a man!

  • Although that sounded like a woman's voice, but that's ok.

  • Anyways, another way to practice your English alone, use Google Translate but use it for

  • more than just translating.

  • Use it to practice your pronunciation.

  • Let's do one more sentence.

  • J'habite au Canada.

  • I live in Canada.

  • I live in Canada!

  • Awesome!

  • The ninth way to practice your English is called, "What does it do?

  • Where did it come from?"

  • So this is little bit like "Narrate Your Life" but what you do is you look at something and

  • you say, "Ok, this is a pail.

  • What does it do?

  • This pail holds water.

  • Where did it come from?

  • I think I bought this pail from a store, from a hardware store one year ago."

  • So if you do, What does it do?

  • Where did it come from?

  • It's just a really good way to practice your vocabulary and to help you remember it.

  • Let's do one more.

  • Let's do this lock.

  • So we would say, "This is a lock.

  • What does it do?

  • It keeps this box locked up so you can't open it.

  • Where did it come from?

  • I think I bought it at the same hardware store that I bought the pail at."

  • Haha!

  • So that's number nine, What does it do? and Where did it come from?

  • I almost forgot what number nine was.

  • A tenth way to learn English alone is to start to draw your vocabulary.

  • When you can take new vocabulary words and add an image to it, it will really help you

  • remember it.

  • The other day I did an English lesson on technology, and we learned words like "television" "remote

  • control" "laptop" and words like "car radio".

  • So if you can start to make little drawings whenever you learn a new word it will really,

  • really help you remember it.

  • So that's the tenth way to learn English by yourself, and it's called "Draw Your Vocabulary"”

  • Well, hey, that's ten way for you to practice your English alone, ways that you can practice

  • your English all by yourself.

  • I'm Bob the Canadian here.

  • Don't forget to click the subscribe button if you are new here, give me a thumbs up,

  • share this video with a friend who's learning any language actually, because this works

  • not just when you are learning English, but when you're learning other languages as well,

  • but that was ten ways to practice your English all by yourself.

  • I hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you in the next video!

Hi Bob the Canadian here.
