字幕列表 影片播放 列印英文字幕 I just watched 'Game of Thrones'. And we need to talk about this word 'crazy', because sometimes it's not enough. Okay, so we have the common adjectives: 'crazy'. We also have 'mad'. If you've seen 'Game of Thrones', you'll be familiar with this word: 'mad'. It means the same as 'crazy'. But, here are some other adjectives you could use to describe a 'crazy person'. What the hell! So we can also say, 'nuts', 'bonkers', 'mental', 'insane'. These ones are quick words you can use to say this person did something so ridiculous that this is the only thing you can say to them. Pronunciation: 'nuts.' These two are very British: 'bonkers', 'mental.' You are bonkers. 'You're absolutely bonkers.' Repeat after me. 'You're absolutely bonkers.' 'You're mental.' Notice the 'L' in mental because it's more British sounding will make that 'L' into an 'L'. 'Mental.' 'Mental.' 'You are mental.' And of course, 'insane'. 'You're insane.' These two are also adjectives, but more commonly, we use them to describe a situation more than a person. You can use them to describe a person, but it would be more about their behavior. Your behavior is 'ridiculous'. The way you're acting is 'ludicrous'. These are just extreme adjectives (very, very crazy). Also, these are common when you respond, uh, out of surprise - it's really common to do that actually. So, for example: 'Oh my god, I got fired from my job today.' 'No, that's ridiculous.' That kind of thing, it's very common to hear that way of speaking. Okay, okay, we also have really fun expressions with this, so here are fun expressions you can use. To 'be out of one's mind' or to 'be off of one's rocker'. So, when we say 'one's thing', you change the pronoun there. For example if it's a blonde dragon writing female, you might say: the female pronoun 'her'. The full sentence: 'she' a version of 'be' whether it's present or past. In this case, we'll use present: 'She is out of her mind.' You can modify this with the word 'damn', and this sounds really strong. For example: 'She is out of her damn mind.' If you watch this series suits, they say this every episode. 'You're out of your mind!' Every episode, trust me. Again, this one: Let's use the male pronoun, so 'he' again present 'is off of his rocker'. 'He's off his rocker.' Often in pronunciation, you might notice that 'of' - we can just leave it - so, it sounds like this: 'He's off his rocker.' So we just say: 'He's off his rocker.' 'He's off his rocker.' And then we have a few of these types of expressions to imply the person's brain is not complete, so they may be aggressive or violent, right? So we could say to 'be a sandwich short of a picnic'. Full sentence: 'I met this guy yesterday and he...' - Let's use past tense. 'I met this guy yesterday, and he was a sandwich short of a picnic.' He tried to steal my phone.' Or be 'not playing with a full deck'. So, we use a negative here. Let's use, um, uh: 'I met this crazy girl yesterday.' She... 'She wasn't playing with a full deck.' 'Did you see that last episode of 'Game of Thrones?' 'I don't think she's playing with a full deck.' And finally, 'not all of one's dogs are barking'. Again, we changed that pronoun, right? so, um, here's: 'That Trump idiot, he says some crazy things, I think not all his dogs are barking.' Again. you might notice that that 'of' drops. 'Not all his dogs are barking.' - That's, that's more how you'd say it. 'Not all his dogs are barking.' Okay, so practice those. Let me know in the comments, are these similar to something in your language? Tell me how they translate to English from your language. Also, like I said we need to talk, so let me know what you thought about that last episode of 'Game of Thrones'. Or if you're watching this in the future, the final season episode 5, what the hell. What the hell. Thanks for watching, if you like this, subscribe if you want. See you in the next class.
