Very crowded, very beautiful, very lovely, very rainy, and very amazinghow many times

do you useveryin a day? Very many times, right? How does it sound to hear the

wordveryfrom me so many times? You'd be like, “Oh! I think she doesn't know enough

words.” Well if you use the wordverythese many times, then the listener will also

think that you don't know good words. That's whatverydoes to you. It completely

spoils your vocabulary and people think that you don't know enough English and that's why

you keep on using the wordvery”. Okay, so what are we going to do today? I am going

to help you improve your English by helping you kick outveryfrom your vocabulary

and get in some very interesting words that you can use to replacevery”. So if you

want to learn all these words, then keep watching this amazing lesson with me, my name is Michelle

and you're watching me on Let's Talk. Okay so as you can see that we have all theseverys

on the board and we need to kick them out, so what do we do? Let's start, let's look

at the first word that we have and this isvery rainy”. Okay do you like rain? I

love rain and guess what last night it was raining heavily. But how does it sound when

I say that? Okay let me try it again, ‘last night it was pouring’, yes, you're smart.

Pouring means it was raining heavily or it was very rainy, okay? So, very rainy as pouring.

Do you know where this comes from? Okay have you ever asked anyone, ‘please pour me a

glass of wateryes, that's where it comes from. It means to ask someone to put some

water in your glass. That's where this word comes from, pouring alright? Now when it's

very rainy and it's pouring like it was last night what did I do? Well as simple as that

I went into the rain and got soaked. Okay socked is another word that you can use in

English to replacevery”. So this word isvery wet”. When something is very

wet, it's soaked, which means that there is so much water that it's dropping out of your

body. So if you're dripping with water you're basically soaked or drenched, okay? Soaked

or drenched. Think about a cotton ball, if you put it in a glass of water it'll become

soaked. That's how it will happen to you when you go out when it's pouring, okay? So don't

get soaked because if you get soaked then you will become frail, uh-uh, “frail”,

now we have another word. Well this word is another word that you can use to kick very

in this pair. “Very weakmeans frail in English, okay? Frail. So if you feel that

you are sick and you're not doing well, you could say that I've been sick for past two

weeks and I feel frailokay which means I feel very weak. Or you could say that, ‘what

happened to you? You look kind of frail todaywhich means you look weak. Okay so this is

how you use these three words to kickveryout of your vocabulary. Now we move to the

next one which isvery sloworvery fast”. Okay I need to tell the secret now,

my phone these days is working real slow. So if I need to tell you guys that my phone

is working very slow, I wouldn't say it like that, okay? I would instead use a very nice

word to say that, which is, ‘my phone is sluggish these days’, which means that it's

very slow. So very slow means sluggish. So if you are also facing the same problem and

you want to take your phone to the service center, what will you go and say there? You

go there and tell them thatmy phone is sluggish these days what can I do about it

which means it's very slow and if you have someone in your family who is like kind of

lazy you could say thathey you're so sluggishthat's how you use it. Okay now the opposite

of very slow is very fast, okay? Of course we all know that but what do you think can

we use in English to replace very fast, well okay have you heard the wordswiftyeah?

That's the name of a hatchback car Swift and it's also sedan, so that's where this word

comes from. It comes from a car which is Swift. Swift in English means something which is

very fast. So fast can be called as Swift. Okay so either sluggish or Swift these are

the two opposites that you can use to talk about very slow or very fast. Now let's move

to the next onevery busy”. What happens during Christmas? How do the streets look

and how do the malls look? Don't they look very busy, right? They do, isn't it? So you

can say very busy to such a place. Or if you think you are very busy, then what will you

say? ‘I am very busy, I can’t do these assignments’, okay? In such a situation

you would say that, ‘I'm swamped and I can't do these assignments’, which means that

you have so much work to do, that you can't do the assignments. So very busy can be replaced

by swamped. Swamped is almost like you have all the work falling on top of you and you

don't know where to start, where to end. Now the next one isvery crowded”. So as

I was talking that if the streets are packed on Christmas, you often say that they are

very crowded, okay? But instead of that you could also say thatthe streets are packed’,

which means that there's not even the space to move an inch, okay? Because you see people

all around the place, people are out buying gifts. So very crowded could stand for packed.

You could say that the malls are packed during Christmas so I don't like to go shopping that

time. Okay now let's kick very further away which isvery happy”. So what do we use

to replaceveryhere? And there's a very interesting word which isthrilled”.

So when you're very excited or very happy like I am right now, that's when you use thrilled.

So if you give a good news to somebody they usually become very happy to find out about

it, like last Sunday, you could saylast Sunday I got the news of my admission in Atlanta

and my aunt was thrilled to hear about it’, which means she got excited and so happy about

it. Okay now with that we move to the next one which isvery scary”. Do you like

horror movies? Well I really don't like them. Okay have you seen this movie, ‘The Ring

well that's a horror movie which is very, very scary, okay? Now when I want to talk

about that movie I will say thatthe movie is horrifying’, okay? Instead of saying

very scary I would choose to say that it's horrifying. Okay now let's move to the other

side of the board and look at some more phrases that we have, “very good”. Okay so the

only thing that I can think about when I read this pair of my friend Josh okay, he's got

amazing math skills like you take any problem to him and he would solve it and I always

tell him that, your math skills are outstanding’, okay? Which means that they are very good.

So you can useoutstandingormind-blowing”. So you could use outstanding or mind-blowing

for something which is so good, okay? Now the next one isvery lucky”. Now as I

was telling you about my friend Josh who's got great math skills, I am very lucky to

have him as a friend because whenever I have a problem I run to him, okay? So very lucky

I could say that, ‘I'm fortunate to have a friend like Josh’, which means I'm very

lucky. Sofortunateokay now the next one isvery brave”. What kind of a person

are you, brave or not brave? Okay if you are a brave person you could say that I don't

have any fear and who is such a person? So a person who does not have fear is called

fearlessand that's the word you can use to replace very brave. Are you a fearless

person? Let me know in the comments. Okay nowvery respected”. Okay this is used

for an institution or an organization which is respected by everyone around the world.

Which university can you think of which is highly respected? Well to my mind the first

one is Harvard University. If somebody gets admission in Harvard University, it's just

amazing, right? And you would possibly tell them in response, ‘hey you got admission

in Harvard, that's the most prestigious university in the world’. You got me right, so if you

want to replacevery respectedyou will sayprestigiouswhich means very respected

or recognized. Prestigious. Okay so this is the word for you prestigious. The next one

isvery sincere”. Okay now if you compliment your friend that wow you got admission in

the most prestigious university he would want to thank you okay and he might saymy heartfelt

thanks to you’, which means I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, okay? These

are called sincere thanks or honest and truthful thanks. So very sincere can be translated

intoheartfelt”, okay? Which means from the bottom of my heart. So if someone has

helped you, you could say that my heartfelt thanks to you for helping me. Okay so if you

think that all that I'm saying is just so correct and so spot-on, so accurate then you

would tell me Michelle you're saying the exact thing that's the word you use to replace very

with accurate. So if something is so correct so accurate you say that it’s “exact

okay? Exact. Now if you want to impress your girl by giving her a compliment and that too

by using good vocabulary, instead of telling her tomorrow that you look beautiful or you

look very beautiful you could tell heryou look gorgeous today’, okay? That's another

word that you can use in place ofvery beautifuland we will end this lesson on

an important note and that note is how do we replace the word very with important? So

anything which is extremely important in English is also known asvital”, okay? V-i-t-a-l

vital. But remember we don't start the word with a ‘Y’ but we started with a ‘V’.

So vital meets something very important. Can you think of something very important? Well

I can think of paying attention during driving, isn't it important? So you'll say thatit's

vital to pay attention while driving’. Whoa! Here we are, you've already kickedvery

out of your vocabulary, congratulations! So in this lesson today you have finally learned

how to replace the wordverywith somevery’… no, extremely useful words in

English. So thank you so much for watching this lesson with me, I'll see you guys soon

in another lesson till then you keep smiling and enjoy your time, bye-bye.
