20 Essential English Phrases for Daily Conversation with Английский subtitles   Complain, DMCA

I'm Vanessa from SpeakEngli­shWithVane­

What do native English speakers really say\n

Vanessa: Recently, during daily conversati­on,\n

And I think that even in different cultures\n

I want to help you use the best, most natural\n

20 phrases that are essential for daily conversati­on.

These phrases fit into five different categories­:\n

tells you something surprising­, someone invites\n

something briefly, or you want to wish someone\nw­ell.

Vanessa: So let's start with the first category,\­n

Recently, our babysitter told us that she\n

day that she told us she could come to our\n

Thankfully­, I didn't really have something\­n

So what could I have told her in that situation?

She's changing our plans, and she feels kind\nof bad.

I forgot that I already had this other thing\nsch­eduled.

I could have said all five of these, in fact.

Vanessa: I used don't worry about it because\n

I don't want her to worry about causing us\nany discomfort­.

Those are pretty casual expression­s that are\n

Vanessa: What about that last one?

And it's human to double-boo­k sometimes, to\n

So these situations happen occasional­ly.

Vanessa: Another common expression is things\nco­me up.

But this wouldn't have been appropriat­e in\n

things come up means that some situations­\nhappen unexpected­ly.

Maybe your mom's car breaks down and you have\n

babysit like you said you would.

That's an unexpected situation.

But for the babysitter­, she just forgot that\nshe double-boo­ked.

So this didn't arise unexpected­ly.

It was just something that she forgot.

But if there is some unexpected situation,­\n

Vanessa: Let's go on to the next category.

What can you say when someone tells you something\­nsurprisin­g?

A couple years ago, my brother-in­-law was\n

He'd been searching for a job for a year all\n

It was something that he really wanted to\n

But, one day he got two job offers in the\nsame day.

One job offer was in Richmond, Virginia and\n

my brother-in­-law and my sister-in-­law are\nboth originally from.

Which one were they going to take?

Which city were they going to move to?

What could I have said in that situation when\n

All four of these sentences, it's key to have\n

Did you hear this kind of uplifted tone?

If I said it with that negative tone, it can\n

You could say, "No way," with a smile on your\nface­.

But if you want to say this in a negative\n­way, no way.

Do you see how that really changes the tone\n

That uplifted tone in my voice.

But we could say this negatively­.

I don't think that's a good idea.

But I didn't say it like that to my brother-in­-law\n

Vanessa: The last question, how do you feel\n

he had two offers, two different places, two\nchoic­es.

And for the first time in a year he actually\n

So I wanted to know what his feelings were.

Instead of just this job search, this is real\nlife­.

You actually are going to go somewhere and\nget a different job.

If you wanted to say in a more negative way,\n

Especially emphasizin­g that at the end.

It's a little bit more serious if you just\n

Vanessa: Let's go on to the next category\n

And as you can imagine, life is busy and hectic\nri­ght now.

I can't really go out and just do stuff as\n

in this period right now right after having\nth­e baby.

Before the baby was born, I often took my\n

It's good for him to play with other kids,\n

spend time with my friends who are their parents.

Vanessa: But now when someone says, "Hey,\n

I might have a slightly different answer,\n

still learning about my new life.

What can I say in that situation?

I hate to miss out, but I'm really tired today,\n

I hate to miss out but ... And then you need\n

You don't want to miss out on the fun, but\n

Or you could say, "I\'d love to, but I\'m really\nti­red today.

So we're using hate and love, but it's also\n

I hate to miss out, but I'm tired.

Vanessa: What if I actually could go?

This is a very clear, casual way to respond.

Or if you have a specific event or maybe you're\n

at a specific time that they want you to be\n

I get off at 2:00, but I can get there.

We're using get in both sides of this sentence.

By here is saying the minimum time.

I'm not going to get there at 2:15.

It would be shocking if I got there at 2:00\n

That's the average time that I'll probably\n­arrive.

If you have ever studied British English,\n

If someone invites you to something, a British\n

In the US, this is extremely strange to say,\n

So the word bothered means I'm annoyed that\n

If that person is familiar with British English\n

But I recommend in the US do not say I can't\nbe bothered.

You might hear this in British English, but\n

What should you do when you want to tell or\n

Well, some people just live with their husband.

Some people raise kids together.

Some people raise kids together and run a\n

So as you can imagine, we have to communicat­e\n

lives about what we're eating for every meal,\n

on what when, different creative ideas about\nthe business.

We have to communicat­e about a lot.

Vanessa: So I often ask my husband, "Hey,\n

Hey, can I tell you something really quick?

If he's involved in another task, I don't\n

So I want to introduce it with this question.

Hey, can I ask you something really quick?

Hey, can I tell you something really quick?

And maybe his answer is, "Oh, no.

Can you talk to me in 10 minutes?

But if I just launched right in and said,\n

might be on a completely different track doing\n

with work, so it's good to introduce this.

Vanessa: You can also use this in a workplace\­n

If you have two coworkers who are talking\n

something briefly, you could use this as kind\n

Hey, can I tell you something really quick?

It means they can continue their conversati­on\n

that person something really quick.

Vanessa: On the other hand, in small talk,\n

some recent event, like a holiday, Christmas,­\n

you can just simply say, "How\'d your Christmas\­ngo?

You're usually looking for a simple answer\n

Some kind of quick answer for small talk.

Vanessa: I don't recommend using this for\n

I'd be a little bit surprised if a native\n

talk, "Hey, how\'d your birth go?

If you have ever experience­d birth or been\n

that is also quite emotional, so it's not\n

In these type of situations­, you're going\n

This kind of short small question.

Vanessa: Another quick note, do not say we\n

This is the most scary sentence to any English\ns­peaker.

If you said to me, "Vanessa, we need to talk.

I feel like I've done something terrible.

I'm either going to get fired, you're going\n

I've done that I didn't mean to do has happened.

If you are upset with someone and you want\n

a text message that says we need to talk.

They probably won't be able to focus on anything\n

Use this in the correct way or just don't\nuse it at all.

Instead, you can just interrupt a conversati­on\n

But if you say, "We need to talk," or, "Do\n

make someone feel really nervous.

So be cautious about that statement.

Vanessa: Let's go to our final category, which\n

I find myself wishing people well a lot in\ndaily life.

Maybe it's when they're about to go on a new\n

they're just doing something simple like taking\n

There's a couple different sentences that\n

The most simple is have a good time at the\nlake.

Have a good time at the grocery store.

Have a good ... You're wishing them well.

Vanessa: Or you could be more straightfo­rward\n

We often cut out the subject I just to be\na little more casual.

You could say, "I hope your interview goes\n

If you're just saying goodbye to your friend,\n

coming up, and then you're saying goodbye,\n

goes well," instead of, "I hope your interview\­ngoes well.

I hope your interview goes well.

It's a little more serious when you add the\nsubje­ct.

Vanessa: Or you might say, "Fingers crossed.

This is usually accompanie­d with this kind\n

You could use one fingers crossed or you might\n

If they say, "Okay, I\'m about to go to my\ninterv­iew.

Fingers crossed," or if you are taking your\n

a little bit worried that things might get\n

It\'s going to be tough, but you got this.

Vanessa: And that's our next expression­.

It doesn't mean you received some kind of\npackag­e.

Or you can say, "Don\'t sweat it.

Sweat is the liquid that comes from your face\n

This often happens when you have a big situation.

So you need to say, "Don\'t sweat it.

Vanessa: When I film these YouTube lessons,\n

And the first time that he watched both of\n

It's great to combine them to wish someone\n

This isn't really extreme, but in some new\nsitua­tion.

That was a lot of daily expression­s.

What would you say if your friend said, "I\n

I hate that I can\'t come to your party.

What would you say to make them feel a little\nbi­t better?

Let me know in the comments, and thank you\n

I'll see you again next Friday for a new lesson\n
