  • Yeah, that sounds good.

  • All right, I've gotta go now. I'll talk to you later.

  • Okay, bye.

  • I just used two phrases that native speakers use all the time.

  • What were they? Let's find out.

  • What's up guys? My name is Shane, and today we are talking about seven phrases native speakers use every day.

  • One of the best ways to learn English is to learn new phrases because when you learn a new phrase, you can use it to communicate with native speakers.

  • But if you learn new words, you might not know how to put them into a sentence, so you might not be able to use the words.

  • Learning new phrases also helps your listening skills because when native speakers use these phrases, and you hear them, you will know what is being said to you

  • So let's get started and look at the first phrase for today.

  • [Phrase #1.]

  • The first phrase today is, 'Hi, how are you going?' 'Hi, how are you going?'

  • This is a very common phrase that you can use to start a conversation with anyone at any time. You can use it in informal situations

  • You can use it in informal situations with your friends and family and in formal situations with your boss and at work.

  • But when it's said really quickly, we say it like this, 'hi how ya goin?' 'Hi, how ya goin?'

  • We don't say 'are' and we change the 'u' to 'yuh', and we don't say 'going', we say 'goin''.

  • 'Hi, how ya goin'?' Now you try. 'Hi, how ya goin'?'

  • And if someone says this to you, a very common response is, 'I'm good thanks, how are you?'

  • [Phrase #2.]

  • And the second phrase for today is, 'I would like to.' 'I would like to.'

  • This is a very formal phrase we use when we want to request something.

  • For example, maybe you are on the phone and you want to book a doctor's appointment or maybe you are talking to your boss and you want to request a day off.

  • You can say, 'I would like to request this Friday off, please.'

  • When we say it really, really quickly, it becomes, 'I'd like tuh.' 'I'd like tuh.'

  • We don't' say 'I would', we say 'I'd'.

  • And we don't say 'to', we say 'tuh'.

  • So it sounds like this: 'I'd like tuh,' 'I'd like tuh.'

  • Now you try. 'I'd like tuh.'

  • And if someone says this to you - maybe you work in an office and someone wants to book an appointment - a very common response is, 'Sure, no problem.'

  • And then you ask them some further information - For example, 'What day would you like to come in?'

  • [Phrase #3.]

  • And the third phrase is, 'What do you think?' 'What do you think?'

  • This is a really good phrase to ask people their opinions, their feelings.

  • It can be used formally and informally.

  • For example, let's say I want to go to the beach with my friend tomorrow, I can say, 'Let's go to the beach tomorrow, what do you think?'

  • And when we say it really, really quickly, it becomes 'woddayuhthink?' 'Woddayuhthink?' 'Woddayuhthink?'

  • Now you try. 'Woddayuhthink?'

  • And if someone ever says this to you, a very common response is just, 'I think that ...'

  • [Phrase #4.]

  • And the next phrase is, 'That sounds good.' That sounds good.'

  • This is a very common phrase to agree with someone or to accept an invitation.

  • So, for example, if somebody says, 'Do you want to study English today?' and you want to study English, you can say, 'That sounds good.'

  • When it's said really fast, we don't say the 'that', we just say, 'Sounds good.' 'Sounds good.'

  • Now you try. 'Sounds good.'

  • And if someone says this to you, you don't have to reply, but if you want to reply, you can say something like 'awesome' or 'great'.

  • [Phrase 5.]

  • And the next phrase is, 'I'll be with you in a moment.' 'I'll be with you in a moment.'

  • This just means please wait.

  • It's a very formal phrase, and we don't normally use it with friends or family.

  • It's normally used at work or on the phone.

  • But when we say it really quickly, it sounds like this: 'I'll be with yuh ina moment.' 'I'll be with yuh ina moment.'

  • Now you try. 'I'll be with yuh ina moment.'

  • And if someone says this to you, you don't have to reply, but if you want to say something back, you can just say, 'no problem' or 'no worries'.

  • [Phrase #6.]

  • And the next phrase is, 'Actually, I think that ...'

  • This is a very polite way to disagree with someone.

  • So, let's pretend someone says to me, 'Shane English is so hard', but I actually think English is easy.

  • So I could say, 'Actually, I think that learning English is easy because ....', and if someone says this to you, a common response is, 'Oh okay, well I think that ...', and you give your reasons, you tell the person what you think.

  • [Phrase #7.]

  • All right, and the last phrase for today is a very, very common phrase.

  • It's, 'All right, I've gotta go, I'll talk to you later.' All right, I've gotta go, I'll talk to you later.'

  • This phrase can be used in formal and informal situations, and we use it to end a conversation or when we want to say bye.

  • So if you're talking to your friend on the phone and you want to end the conversation, you can say, 'All right, I've gotta go now. I'll talk to you later.'

  • And when we say it really quickly, it sounds like this: 'All right, I've gotta go, I'll talk to yuh later.' 'All right, I've gotta go, I'll talk to yuh later.'

  • One more time. 'All right, I've gotta go, I'll talk to yuh later.'

  • Now you try.

  • And if someone says this to you, a very common response is, 'Okay no problem, I'll talk to you later', or 'Okay, no problem, have a good day. Bye.'

  • All right, that is it for today.
