08 Expressions to say "Someone is right" - Free English Speaking Lessons online If somebody asks 'You're an English student, aren't you?'. What will you reply “Yes”? In this spoken English lesson you will learn ten English expressions that you can use to agree with someone/ to say that this information is in fact correct. Visit our Website - http://www.learnex.in/ Like us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast Follow us on Instagram - http://www.instagram.com/letstalkpodcast Yes, that's right – this is a general response to agree. Example: If someone asks you “Are you the sister/brother of xyz, you can say “Yes, that’s right”. You're quite right – this is used when the person concerned is not completely right. Example: John meets his friend Mark who is getting divorced. John tells him “Hey, you’re divorced, right?” Mark replies “You’re quite right, my divorce is in process”. Yes, that's correct – neutral response for agreement. Example: Are you an English student? Yes that’s correct. That's spot on – mostly used to praise and agree. It is a British slang for "well done", "perfect" or "right on”. Example: The food in England might not always be so good, but the brew in the pubs are spot on every time. You're dead right (there) – used to agree with people in a meeting, discussions or general conversations. Note: the opposite of dead right can be dead wrong Examples: You are dead right about his idea. It just will not work. He is dead right. Our products are not competitive. You've hit the nail on the head- means to be exactly right about something. Example: Mike hit the nail on the head when he said most people can use a computer without knowing how it works. You could say so -70 % agreement Example: You go for a movie with your friends and after the movie one of your friend says “the movie was awesome” and you reply “you could say so” because everyone else didn’t like the movie. I'm afraid so – means I believe regrettably, the answer is yes. Example: Alice: Do you have to go? John: I’m afraid so.

10 Teenage Secrets Teens Never Tell You - English Conversation Lesson - Listening Practice It's always been tough to be a teenager. For today's teens, it's even tougher. Social media has teens living their lives out online for everyone to see -- friends and family as well as their enemies and bullies.

Unauthorized usage of vehicles. They drive Dad’s motorbike or car without his approval. When they meet with a minor accident and the vehicle gets damaged, They just say "I found it lying like that in a parking lot". 2. Hiding real ambitions There’s so much pressure on the teenagers to become engineers or doctors. They want to become an air-hostess or an athlete but find it tough to discuss it with my parents. 3. Watching porn films Teenagers often watch porn films at their friends’ places or flip through adult magazines when their parents are not home. A lot of porn is also available on the Internet and some of the teenagers download short clips onto their mobiles. 4. Not revealing fights sometimes teenagers fight with their friends,  but there’s a mutual understanding that they won’t let their parents know. And, usually, they sort out the differences themselves. 5. Practicing bad hygiene To avoid bathing during the winter. They just go into the bathroom, wet their feet, face and hair, spray some deodorant and exclaim how cold the water was! 6. Keeping financial secrets Some of the teenagers have taken up part-time jobs to meet their expenses, but they don’t tell their parents about it so that their pocket money is not reduced. 7. Memorizing phone numbers They memorize the phone numbers of their friends whom their parents do not approve of so that their names don’t blink on their mobile phone. 8. Drug / Alcohol. Sexual abuse Some of them get stuck with friends from whom they learn to smoke, drink, splurge, and other vices. They get entangled with a group and become addicted to the abuses. 9. Damaging property while playing football or any other indoor games with their siblings, they break things, for example, a flowerpot. They throw the broken pieces into a vacant, adjacent plot without my parents knowing. 10. Cheating on studies Homework is often a team effort. They divide homework between friends so it becomes easier to finish it on time. At times, they also convince one of the studious fellows of their class to part with his homework and then copy it.

SOME vs ANY – Learn 6 difference and use them correctly in spoken English – Grammar Lesson This English Grammar lesson talks about how we can use the two common words some and any in our day to day English conversation. Some and any are used to talk about any indefinite quantity (a quantity which is not specified). Learn the difference between the most common words Some and Any. Very often students interchange or use the incorrect word. For example I don’t have no time. This is wrong you should say I don’t have any time. Visit our Website - http://www.learnex.in Follow us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast Follow us on Instagram - http://www.instagram.com/letstalkpodcast/ Let’s look at a few English Grammar rules to remember the correct usage of Some vs Any Countable and uncountable nouns Countable - something that can be counted for example: pens, phones, people, roads, etc. Uncountable- something that cannot be counted but measured or felt for example: oil, water, sugar, happiness, pain, etc. I need some books (countable) There is some noise in the machine (uncountable) Do you have any food in the fridge? (Uncountable) However, food items are uncountable. Some – used with positive sentences (those sentences which don’t have any negative word in them) I need some time. There was some traffic on my way back home. Any – used with negative sentences (those sentences which have negative words in them) I don’t have any idea about tomorrow’s party. I don’t want any trouble. Any – used with questions Do you have any questions? Does she know any good housekeeping services? Some – used for polite request/offer Would you like some more tea? Could I take some more cookies? Somebody/someone/Something/somewhere The above words can be used in sentences when you are unsure of the exact person, thing or place. Also they can be used only in positive sentences. Somebody and someone can be used interchangeably I have to find somebody to fix this laptop. There is something in this box. She has to go somewhere tomorrow. Anybody/anyone/anything/anywhere The above words can be used only in questions and negative sentences and when you are unsure of the person, thing or place. Anybody and anyone can be used interchangeably. Does anybody know how to use this application? Do you have anything to munch on? I don’t feel like going anywhere today, let’s stay home. We hope that this English Grammar lesson has cleared the doubts that you had about the usage of some and any and you learned the difference between these two words. Please use the words correctly and practice to become fluent in English.

Visit our Website - http://www.learnex.in/bad-habits-english-listening-practice Follow us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast Follow us on Instagram - http://www.instagram.com/letstalkpodcast Complaining – Complaining is quite normal, but to complain for each and every thing even in perfect conditions is considered a bad habit. You may even be called a complain box in your office by your colleagues. Excessive Flirting – Giving compliments is good, such as you look great, your shirt colour is nice etc. but when you try to flirt saying, You look too hot, it sounds a bit unprofessional. There are many people who indulge in excessive flirting to climb the corporate ladder, this in turn makes them lose respect among their co-workers. Procrastination- Putting your task or job for a later time is not a good thing. It only piles up your work and reduces your efficiency. You would find procrastinators ( a person who procrastinates) asking you for tiny smoke and coffee breaks or would stop by your cubicle to chat about everything, but not work. Such people often miss their deadlines. Pleasing unnecessarily – You cannot make everyone happy at work, if you try to please everyone around you to create a good impression, you are wrong. Stop doing that as you would end up losing efficiency at your tasks. You cannot impress each and every one, do what you are good at and for what you are hired to do. Slang term used for people who try to please unnecessarily is ‘Boot Lickers’ Pulling too many jokes – Jokes are good as they lighten up the atmosphere. But if you have jokes for every situations they will lose their wittiness and would be more annoying, you cannot expect people to laugh all the time. Verbal humour to an extent is acceptable, but pranks may not be acceptable by everyone. Causing conflicts – I am sure you must have come across a co-worker who enjoys creating misunderstandings among colleagues which lead to fights and spoils the work environment. If you are one of those you are sure to lose respect and trust. Your colleagues would stop trusting you and nobody would be impressed by such conflicts. I hope this English lesson has helped you in understand bad habits that makes you look unprofessional and now you would talk confidently about them in spoken English.
