  • Hi everyone, and welcome to part four of this 'Beginner English Phrases for Conversation' series.

  • If you haven't seen the first three parts, you can find the playlist up here or you can find the link in the description below.

  • All right, let's talk about today's phrase.

  • Today's phrase is: 'Where are you from?'

  • 'Where are you from?'

  • This is the most basic way to ask someone what their country is or what their city is.

  • Please note that, 'Where are you from?' does not mean 'Where did you come from today?'.

  • 'Where are you from?' is asking about your country or your city.

  • Now when native speakers say 'Where are you from?' very quickly in more informal situations, normally they don't say 'are'.

  • They just 'Where yuh from?'

  • 'Where yuh from?'

  • And also, please note that a different way to ask 'Where are you from?' is 'Where do you come from?'.

  • 'Where do you come from?'

  • Most native speakers don't say 'Where do you come from?'.

  • They say 'Where are you from?' because it's shorter and quicker.

  • If someone asks you 'Where are you from?' how can you answer this question?

  • Well there are two main ways to answer.

  • The first way is by saying 'I'm from' plus "your country'.

  • For example, 'I'm from England.'

  • 'I'm from Germany.'

  • 'I'm from Thailand.'

  • Now, the second way to answer this is by saying 'I'm' plus 'your nationality'.

  • For example, 'I'm English.'

  • 'I'm German.'

  • 'I'm Thai.'

  • Now, let's talk about some common mistakes with this phrase.

  • The most common mistake is when students answer the question 'Where are you from?' by saying 'I came from' plus 'their country'.

  • For example, 'I came from England.'

  • But this is not correct.

  • 'I came from' is talking about just one time.

  • But if you are talking about your country, you need to say 'I come from'.

  • Why?

  • Because 'I come from' is talking about something that is always true.

  • And it's always true that you come from your country.

  • It's not just one time.

  • The second most common mistake is when students say, 'I am come from' plus 'their country'.

  • For example, 'I am come from England.'

  • This is incorrect because after 'am', we don't use verb one.

  • To correct this, we need to say, 'I come from England.'

  • No 'am'.

  • And please note that most native speakers, when they answer the question 'Where are you from?' they don't say 'I come from' plus 'their country'.

  • They just say, 'I'm from' plus 'their country'.

  • For example, 'I'm from England.'
