  • Hi guys. Welcome back to English with Max. In this video you are going to learn

  • 10 advanced adjectives to help you avoid using the word "very". Don't worry, there's

  • nothing wrong with the word "very". I know I use it very frequently, but it gets a

  • bit boring if you use it constantly.

  • Before we begin, if you would like to learn more advanced vocabulary, make sure

  • you sign up for my free advanced English email lessons. I send them out every two

  • weeks and you can unsubscribe at any time. You'll find the link in the

  • description. Let's first look at the words and their meanings. After that we

  • will practise them in sentences. I will also give you some time to repeat the

  • sentences after me so you can practise your pronunciation. The first word is

  • spotless. Spotless. This means very clean. Pay attention to

  • how the T is pronounced in the middle of the word. It's a very soft T.

  • We don't usually say "spoT-less". We say "spotless". Spotless. The opposite of very

  • clean is obviously very dirty. Instead of very dirty, you can say filthy.

  • The kitchen was filthy. Now let's look at very bad. You probably already know some

  • words that mean very bad, like horrible or terrible, but a word that many

  • non-natives don't know is atrocious. Atrocious.

  • You could say, for example: That movie was atrocious.

  • Another way to say very painful is excruciating.

  • Excruciating. Let's break that down. Ex-cru-ci-a-ting. Excruciating.

  • Number five. Instead of saying very wet, you can say soaked.

  • Soaked. We normally use it for things that absorb water very easily,

  • for example, clothes or towels. But you can also use it for people. Like: I forgot my

  • umbrella so I was soaked by the time I got home.

  • If you want to say that someone has a lot of money, you can say that they are very rich.

  • Another way to say this is wealthy. Wealthy.

  • And now a couple of words to talk about the weather.

  • Instead of saying very cold, you can say freezing. It's freezing outside.

  • The opposite is of course very hot. Another way to say this is boiling. It's boiling

  • outside. We also often put "hot" after "boiling". Like: It's boiling hot today.

  • Number nine. Instead of saying very hungry, we can say ravenous. Ravenous.

  • And finally, instead of using very old, we can use ancient. Ancient.

  • You can use this for things or for people. That computer is ancient.

  • My economics professor is ancient.

  • Now let's look at all of these words in sentences.

  • This part is extremely important because it will help you to remember the words

  • and it's a good opportunity for you to practise your pronunciation. I will pause

  • after each sentence so you have time to repeat it after me. It might help to

  • watch the movement of my lips. I hope there's no food in my teeth.

  • Number one: George's room is always spotless.

  • Now you say it.

  • Again: George's room is always spotless.

  • Number two: Frank's room, on the other hand, is usually filthy.

  • Again: Frank's room, on the other hand, is usually filthy.

  • And in case you don't know who Frank and George are...

  • This is George and this is Frank.

  • Number three: He's a good writer, but his spelling is atrocious.

  • Did you notice how I said "but his"?

  • I didn't pronounce the H. I actually said "but-is". "But-is".

  • One more time. He's a good writer, but his spelling is atrocious.

  • Number four: When I had appendicitis, the pain was excruciating.

  • When I had appendicitis, the pain was excruciating.

  • My shoes were soaked after I walked home in the rain.

  • My shoes were soaked after I walked home in the rain.

  • Number six: She's become an incredibly wealthy woman.

  • Again: She's become an incredibly wealthy woman.

  • Number seven: Can you turn on the heater? It's freezing in here.

  • Can you turn on the heater? It's freezing in here.

  • Number eight: You should wear light clothes because it's going to be boiling today.

  • You should wear light clothes because it's going to be boiling today.

  • Number nine: I haven't eaten all day and I'm ravenous.

  • I haven't eaten all day and I'm ravenous.

  • And now the final sentence:

  • Some people say that my phone's ancient because it's now two years old.

  • Some people say that my phone's ancient because it's now 2 years old.

  • If you would like to practise using these words, create your own sentences

  • and write them in the comments. If you are new to my channel,

  • don't forget to subscribe and remember that you can also follow me on social media.

  • See you next time.

  • Number nine...

  • My butt hurts...

  • ... don't...

  • If you would like to...
