  • Hi, I'm Vanessa from SpeakEnglishWithVanessa.com.

  • Look, squint, glare, stare.

  • What's the difference?

  • Let's talk about it.

  • I often have English learners ask me, "Vanessa, I can watch an English TV show and I get the general ideas, but I don't feel like I really get it, like, I really understand what they're saying."

  • Well, I have some good news.

  • In today's lesson, I'd like to help you learn the real meaning of some key important words that you can use in daily conversations.

  • There are many words like you just heard (look, stare, squint, glare) that might seem similar, but they have another meaning underneath that is quite important to know.

  • So, during today's lesson, I'm going to be showing you the difference between four words.

  • There are many sets of four words, but these words are pretty similar.

  • They can be used in similar ways, but they need to be used in specific situations.

  • So my challenge for you is to watch this lesson, look at the different ways that I act, I'm going to be a, like an actress today, that I act when I act out these different words.

  • And, if you would like, you're welcome to download the free PDF for all of these words that I have created for you.
