Action. Hi. James from engVid. You're used to me talking about English. Grammar, conversation
lessons, and whatnot. Today, we're going to do something a little different.
I want you to maximize your learning from not just engVid, but from YouTube.
And there are some features on there that I don't think you're aware of, that by the time I'm done,
you'll understand how to use them, and then I'm going to teach you
how to actually watch our videos to get your maximum learning capacity,
or your ability to learn. Are you ready? It's a small adventure, so let's get started, shall we?
As you can see, E is over here, and he's is saying: "Wow, look at me."
And there are these strange buttons. Now, some of you are completely aware of what they are,
and some of you don't know. And unfortunately, if you don't know,
you're missing out on some of the best tools to help you learn how to learn English,
or anything on YouTube. Right? But especially for engVid, this is helpful.
Now, there are three buttons that I want to discuss with you, and then after, I'm going to give you
a kind of detailed approach on how to use our videos, so you can learn as much as you can.
Let's take a look at the buttons. First thing is CC. You'll notice where that's located here,
Now, do keep in mind that depending on what machine you're using, and over time,
YouTube changes where these things are, but they should essentially be here. And at this
time when I'm taking the video or I'm making the video, it's in this position, here. So
remember: If you've got an app or a different type of system, it might be a little differently
placed, but it essentially will be the same. "CC" means closed captioning. For some of
you, that means subtitles. Those are the words that are appearing underneath when I'm speaking.
Now, why do you need to know that? Well, it depends on what kind of student you are.
I personally don't like when students use subtitles, if they're a higher level, because it handicaps
them or makes it difficult, because they tend to read, or they have the habit of reading
instead of actually listening. But if you're new to the language and you don't know any
of the words, and there's a lot of words that you don't know, it's a good thing to have
subtitles so you can read along with the speaker, and that helps you to understand. So you can
use the CC button to turn on the captions. Now, if you're a senior or seasoned
engVid watcher, perhaps you want to turn them off a little bit to challenge yourself.
See how good you are. So you can listen to the speaker, write down notes, see if you got it correctly,
and then turn back on the closed captioning to see if you've done a good job. Cool
All right? So that's closed captioning. It is the text at the bottom, sometimes called subtitles.
The next one is this funny-looking thing. It's called a gear. If you know anything about
watches or cars, these are the things with teeth that join and they move. Why do they
move? Because they have several operations. The one operation we want to talk about is
actually the speed setting. This is especially good for people who want to increase their
comprehension or improve on their listening skills. If it's not a comprehension, just
catching the language. You'll press the gear button, and once you go in there, there are
several options. The only one I'm going to speak about right now is speed. This one's
for you. Go to the settings, or the gear, and press speed. You'll notice you can go
faster or slower. So you can have the video talk like this and blah, blah, blah, blah.
Or it can go incredibly slowly, depending on what you need. Now, if you want to once
again challenge yourself, speed it up a little for about the first minute or so. The speed
will be doing this, but when you slow it to normal speed, the speaker will seem to speak
slowly, and you'll get used to hearing a faster speed, and it will become natural
for you. However, if you're just learning and sometimes, like me... Come on, it's James,
right? "He speak too fast." I hear this comment every day. Go to the slower speed, and then
I will go slower, and make it much easier for you to understand every word I'm saying.
The rest of you, you're not crazy. I am now speaking to the new people. Okay? This is
an amazing button that will help you with your learning. Okay? Great. So we've got that.
Let's go to the third option. For some people, it's not a big deal, but listen: While we're
here, why don't we learn? This is the full screen button. You'll notice it's up here
on the outside. If you click that, I will go from here to here. [Laughs] That's right.
The picture will get bigger, and I will take up the whole screen. Sometimes that's really
helpful, because sometimes, you guys... And I know it's true. My writing looks like this
to you. You're like: "What the hell did he just write? I can't read it." Well, on full
screen, the writing becomes this. So it's a thing you might want to use if it's hard
to read anything that we've written on the board. Okay?
So let's go over that. A quick, you know, a quick little synopsis, or a quick little recap.
That means to go over the lesson to make sure we understand it. Closed captioning
is for the words, right? On the bottom of the screen. The gear, or the settings, we
can use for speed to speed up or slow down if necessary. And the full screen is to make
me big or make me small. Right? Now, that was the first part of the lesson.
We're going to click over, and then I'm going to come back into
how to watch engVid videos to get the most for you. Are you ready?
Okay, guys. So now, let's work on making the information you get for engVid much more effective
for you. Are you ready? Let's go to the board. I have four simple steps that I think will
help you learn faster and better, and more effectively. So, first thing I want you to
do is watch the whole thing non-stop. What does that mean? I know that I speak quickly,
or some of the concepts that the other teachers might say to you may be difficult, but just
wait a second. Just watch the whole video. You may not understand it right away, but
I can almost guarantee by the time you finish the other three steps, it will make more sense
to you. All right? So watch it right away. This is to get what I call a global comprehension.
Or to understand the video basically. You won't get everything, but at the end, you'll
"Okay, they're talking about adverbs." or: "Okay, they're talking about conversation
skills." You'll get that.
But now when we want to get the details, I want you to do this part: Watch the video again.
This time, make notes on what you think is important to you. It doesn't have to be for me.
but for you, to help you remember. Or if you have questions, like:
"Why do you teachers say this, and didn't say that?" Or: "Why was this left out?"
Make sure you write these down, because this will help you with the third part, okay? So you've watched it
once just to get an overview, a general look at it. The second time, you got more specific
by stopping where you needed to in order to write down important parts to help you remember,
or things where you have questions about.
Take that paper that you have now with your notes, and we'll do the third part. If you
still have questions, go to the engVid website. Now, some of you will be there already, because
you're on engVid regularly. But we know that a lot of you come from YouTube to watch our
videos, so I'm telling you now: Go down, subscribe. Look at it, there's a button, and you can
go directly to engVid. So go to www.engVid.com, okay? I usually say it at the end of the video,
but go to www.engVig.com. Go to the site, and there's a section for the video you watched.
You can put it in, and then you can write a comment in the comments section. Here's
the cool part: When you do that, there are other students who are studying what you're doing.
They often talk to each other, and some of them I've watched give suggestions,
or give notes, or explain it to help you out. So they can help you with your questions,
right? Or, you know, they might share the same... The same kind of idea you have, like:
"This was really important," or: "I like this about it." It's kind of cool. You can get
international people to help you learn, just like a classroom. Your own classroom.
All right?
Now, after you've done that and your questions have been answered, what I highly suggest
is then you do the quiz. Why? Because if your questions have answered, you think you have
a really good understanding, you should do really well on the quiz. Please remember that
when you take the quiz, 70% is the benchmark; the least. In fact, if you're very careful
and you want, you'll notice that engVid itself does something, it changes the colours.
Anything under 70% will come out as red, meaning you didn't quite score enough to say you've mastered
it. If you get green, it's saying: "Hey, good for you! That's good!" And then you can get
gold, and that is: "You are the king or queen, baby. You wear the crown." That means you've
mastered the system. Right? That's fantastic. So, do that.
If you get less than 70%, what I would suggest is you go back and watch the video again,
because there's clearly some key things that you didn't catch. And because of the quiz,
you can look at what you got wrong-all right?-and you can say: "Hey, I made a mistake here,
and here, and here, I need to watch that section of the video and try and get that, and maybe
get better questions to get my friends to help me with in the comments section." And
if you look over the comments section, you'll see many times people helping each other with
those questions that you might have.
Was that helpful? I know it's more than helpful. And before I forget: Here's how you can get
the latest videos from myself and the other teachers guaranteed to come to you. Because
some of you don't know this, but unless you subscribe, you don't know what we're putting
out. So you need to subscribe. Not just to myself, but if you have other teachers that
you like, you need to subscribe to those teachers as well. Okay? There's no money involved with
this, don't worry. It's YouTube; it's free, you don't have to pay. What this does is it
just says that if I have a new video, you'll get a notice saying: "Hey, James' new video...
His latest video is out. Go watch it now." And it will be ready, waiting for you. But
also, don't forget that if there are other teachers you like, you need to subscribe to
each one individually; one button does not cover all. And if you do that, you'll be one
happy camper.
Hey, listen, I hope you've enjoyed this lesson because, although it's not directly on English,
it's the way to best maximize your way of learning English. All right? We've learned
how the system works by using the closed caption, the settings button, and the full screen,
and you've got tips on how to maximize your learning from my videos or any of the other teachers.
I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Once again, thanks for helping. Come
to engVid. Don't forget to subscribe. And you see me doing this, because I know, depending
on what you're using, the subscribe button-... Button can be anywhere. And don't forget to
go to www.eng as in English, Vid as in video.com. (www.engvid.com)
Subscribe now. Thank you.
See you later.
