One of the best ways to sound more fluent when you're speaking English is to use advanced words rather than simple words.
In this video, I'm going to teach you some advanced words, so that you can avoid using the word "very".
In addition, we're going to practice these words in sentences while we practice the rules of linking
which means connecting words together so that you can improve your accent.
Let's practice changing some simple words into advanced words.
The first one is "very interesting."
Instead of saying very interesting you can simply say "fascinating."
You can say: "That's fascinating."
The second one is "very open."
Instead of saying: "Thank you for being very open with me.", you can say "transparent."
Thank you for being transparent with me.
Number three is "very honest."
You can say "straightforward" or "frank."
And we will practice these as soon as we finish all ten so make sure you watch this video till the end.
Number four.
Instead of saying "very poor", you can say "destitute" or "impoverished."
Number five.
Instead of saying "very rich", you can say "well off" or "prosperous."
And you probably know wealthy.
That's another one you can use.
Number six: very scared.
Instead of saying "I was very scared.", you can say "I was petrified." or "I was terrified."
It means exactly the same thing.
Number seven: very intelligent.
You can say "brilliant."
Number eight: very angry.
You can say "indignant" or "enraged."
Number nine: very big.
You can say "gigantic" or "enormous."
And number ten.
Instead of saying "very crowded", you can say "cramped" or "jam-packed."
And now here comes the important part.
Remember everything that you learn, you have to practice.
So we're going to practice these words in sentences.
And we will try to sound as natural as possible.
So listen to the way I say these in sentences and pay attention to which words I stress.
And also pay attention to how I connect the words together.
Number one: I heard a fascinating story.
Did you hear how I connected the "d" and the "a"?
"herda, herda."
Let's do that again: I heard a fascinating story.
Number two: thank you for being transparent with me.
If you notice I emphasize "transparent."
I did not stress "with" or "me" because those are not keywords.
Those are function words; they don't carry the meaning.
Listen again: thank you for being transparent with me.
Number three: he gave straightforward responses.
Number four: we drove through the impoverished neighborhood.
And you noticed I connect "the" with the letter "I" of impoverished because it begins with the vowel.
So we don't say "the" impoverished, we say "the" impoverished.
Listen again: we drove through the impoverished neighborhood.
Number five: this is a prosperous city.
If you notice I connected "this is a", those are linked together and then "prosperous city."
We combined those two sounds because they sound the same, and we change it into only one sound.
This is a prosperous city.
Number six: some people are petrified of snakes.
Some people are petrified of snakes.
I connected the "l" with the "a": people are.
And then I connected "petrified of."
I connected the "d" to the "o": petrified of.
Let's do that again.
Some people are petrified of snakes.
Number seven: my professor is brilliant.
We connect the "r" to the "i": professor is.
Let's do that again: my professor is brilliant.
Number eight: the indignant customer complained about the bad advice.
Listen again: complained about, we connected the "d" with the "a"
The indignant customer complained about the bad advice.
Number nine: the storm on the ocean created gigantic waves.
We connect the "m "to the "o."
The storm on the ocean, and we say "the" ocean, not "the" ocean.
Listen again: the storm on the ocean created gigantic waves.
Number ten: he doesn't like to be in cramped elevators.
We connect the "ed" of cramped to the "e" of elevators.
And it sounds like this: cramped elevators.
Let's do that again: he doesn't like to be in cramped elevators.
Keep learning new vocabulary.
As soon as you learn a new word, create your own sentences.
And then practice connecting the words together and stressing the key words.
And you're gonna feel a lot more confident about your English!
