109

Hey naturals, what's up Gabby Wallace here your American English teacher here to help you become fluent in English

Now there's something that makes me really upset and that's when you learn good English, but

Good is the enemy of great let me explain in your English class?

Your teacher your textbook your traditional English class is teaching you good English

It's probably academic English you're probably learning a lot of grammar and vocabulary lists, and you're learning good English

You're learning correct English, but what really makes me sad is to see you go out into the real world and not

understand other people speaking English so having great English means that you're able to

understand everyone who speaks English and

actually

Interact with them to speak so that they understand you so if you want to be able to communicate

naturally in English, that's why it's called go natural English because

Natural communication is what we do in everyday life not in a textbook

I want you to know that I wrote an e-book for you with my best strategies techniques

Practice examples all that good stuff

It's called the English fluency formula

And I wanted to show it to you here mostly because I want to show off my nails that I just got done

No, but really. This is a good ebook a good resource for you that I want you to be aware of okay

So I'm gonna share five things with you that

Native English speakers say that you probably never learn in your traditional English class

so I'm gonna share how to

translate your traditional English lesson

Phrases into real-life natural English, so here. We go. Are you ready? Can I share these? Yeah, okay? Let's go

number one

Why this is traditional English first and then natural English second? Why?

Translated into natural English is how come so?

Yes, native english-speakers say why we ask questions with why why is the sky blue, but native?

english-speakers will actually also

Often ask how come how come the sky is blue, and they're equally

common

number two please repeat

This is a little bit

Stilted in my opinion although some native speakers would use this. It's correct

It's fine, but instead of please repeat a lot of native English speakers will ask

Come again

so instead of asking someone to repeat what they said we simply say come again or

Sorry

So that's a way, you can ask someone to repeat themselves come again

Number three number three, are you finished are you finished is?

Fine but an even more native way to say this is and this is very very common

And I see a lot of even advanced English learners who?

Get tripped up or in other words don't understand when people say this is are you all set?

or simply Y all set

Or all set all set means are you finished and you might hear this at a store?

if you're at the checkout counter or maybe if you are at work and your

Coworker or your boss wants to know are you finished with this work. Are you all set with this work?

So this is a really important phrase number. Three is super super useful

number four

Instead of saying to go to a place which is perfectly fine

It's correct and good to say to go to

Let's add a phrase that we can use in the same way

To stop by so I just texted my friend

And I said is it okay if I stop by your house at 6 p.m.

Are you going to be home so this means to go to or to visit?

But we can use it

Instead of those to stop by my friend's house to stop by the store to stop by work

It means a quick visit to go to

Briefly not for a long time so maybe you want to stop by a party

You don't want to stay too late or too long, but you want to stop be social show your face

This is a good way to use to stop by finally number five

the verb to

Meet can give us a lot of confusion because we use it in a lot of different ways to me can mean

to

see someone it can mean to

To actually be introduced to someone for the first time it can mean two pieces that come together in

the idiom to make ends meet

Which means that you're earning enough money to pay your bills?

We're learning a lot in this lesson our tree a lot of idioms and a lot of new phrases so to meet is

often actually

replaced with to meet up by native speakers to

distinguish between different ways of

Using the verb means and so over time it evolved that a lot of native English speakers will say to meet up to

Say, you know to see each other not for the first time but to meet up or to get together so to get

Together is often used to make plans hey

Do you want to meet up this weekend you want to meet up after work?

Or do you want to get together after work? So these are really common?

Natural ways of adapting your english to a more natural way of speaking
