LOL!! Learn English vocabulary about JOKES: hilarious, dirty joke, LMAO...
What's the difference between "fun" and "funny"? What do you say when you see something that makes you laugh? What is the difference between "LOL" and "LMAO"? In this interactive video, I'm going to teach you how to talk about jokes and comedy. You will learn many ways to say that you think something is funny or not funny. You will also learn what you can say if you don't understand a joke. At the end, I will tell you some jokes, and you can practise your new expressions! Don't forget to take the quiz at the end to check your understanding. http://www.engvid.com/lol-learn-english-vocabulary-about-jokes-hilarious-dirty-joke-lmao/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you all about laughing, funny jokes, and comedy. I'm going to teach you, specifically, expressions we can use when we hear a joke or when we watch a funny movie, or when something funny happens. So, the lesson for today is titled: "LMAO: Talking about Comedy hahaha". All right. So, first off, "LMAO", I don't know if you've ever seen this, but this is something people write on the internet. It's the same as "lol"; this means "laugh my ass off". And we use this when we find something very, very funny. So let me teach you first about the words "fun" and "funny", and then we will get into these expressions. So the first thing I wanted to teach you: "fun" versus "funny". This is probably one of the number one mistakes I see students make. "Oh, teacher, it's so fun.", "Oh, teacher, it's funny." What's the difference? "Fun" is not used for hahaha. "Fun" is used when we're talking about something that is exciting and that makes us happy. So, for example, I like sports, sports are fun, sports are exciting, sports make me happy. This is different from the word "funny". So, "funny" means it makes you laugh. The TV show The Big Bang Theory, to me, when I watch that, I laugh - it's funny. When I watch comedies, when I watch funny movies, I laugh, so they are funny. Okay? So this is a very big difference between these two, so very important you know the difference between "funny" and "fun". We have here the word "lol", I'll just explain what this means very quickly. "Lol" is something we also use on the internet, similar to "lmao". It means "laugh out loud". Okay? So when you see something funny on the internet, you can write: "Lol", and it means you think it's funny. So let's look at some expressions that we can use when we find something funny. The first expression... And actually, I'm going to add something here: "hahaha". Okay. It's important. Okay, so the first expression, here: "It's funny" means this happens. You see something: "Oh, it's funny. Hahaha." The second one has the same meaning: "It's hilarious." Okay? So this means it's funny. When I think about actors, Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, these guys, to me, I think they're hilarious. So I want you to try the pronunciation of this word: "hilarious". The stress, the part that's loud - there. "Hilarious". I want you to think about something in your own life that you think is very funny. What's something that's hilarious? Maybe you've seen a TV show, maybe YouTube videos. All right? Think about something that's hilarious. We can also use this expression: "It made me laugh." Okay? So this means you saw something, it was funny, it made you laugh. We have, like I said before: "laugh my ass off", this is what we use when we're writing something on the internet. We can also use it with an "f", which is a little bit ruder. It means: "Laugh my fucking ass off". If you laugh your ass off, it means you found something hilarious, it means you found something very, very funny. We also have this: "I burst out laughing." This means suddenly you start laughing. Okay? So you're serious, and suddenly: "Hahahahaha." Okay? You burst out laughing. It's sudden laughter. We also have the word: "It cracks me up." If something cracks you up... So it can be anything. It means the same thing as "It made me laugh." For me, cat videos on YouTube, they crack me up. I laugh when I watch cat videos; they crack me up. Different movies crack me up. The Three Stooges, I guess, cracked me up. Okay? So "crack me up" means it makes me laugh. Finally, the last one: "I couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't stop laughing." Has there ever been a situation that you found so funny you laughed, and laughed, and laughed? For those situations, we say: "I couldn't stop laughing." So all of these we use when we're very happy, and we find something hahaha; we find something funny. All right. Now, we also have words we use when we don't understand a joke. A lot of the times you'll hear an English joke, maybe you're watching a TV show, and everyone around you is laughing, but you don't understand why.

Memories in Paraphrase
Paraphrase is restatement of a text or passage, using other words. The term "paraphrase" derives via the Latin "paraphrasis" from the Greek para phraseïn, meaning "additional manner of expression". A paraphrase need not accompany a direct quotation, but when this is so, the paraphrase typically serves to put the source's statement into perspective or to clarify the context in which it appeared. A paraphrase is typically more detailed than a summary. One feature of a paraphrase is that it preserves the essential meaning of the material being paraphrased. Thus, the (intentional or otherwise) reinterpretation of a source to infer a meaning that is not explicitly evident in the source itself qualifies as "original research," and not as paraphrase.

Describing people in English: BE or BEING?
Do you know the difference between "he is nice" and "he is being nice"? This small change makes a huge difference! In this video, you'll learn how "be" and "being" can either express an overall personality, or a current behavior. The English language is full of small changes which can alter the meaning of a sentence completely. But don't worry! I'll explain how 'be' and 'being' differ from each other, and will teach you to use them correctly. You'll have a chance to see many example sentences, and we'll do some practice exercises together. By the time you finish this easy lesson, I'm sure you'll be able to score 100% on the quiz at http://www.engvid.com/describing-people-in-english-be-or-being/ Hi there. My name is Emma, and in today's video I am going to teach you the difference between "be" and "being" when we are talking about people. Okay? So, I'm going to show you some sentences. The first one: "The boy is naughty." So "naughty" is like a bad boy. And the second one: "The boy is being naughty." What is the difference in this...? These two sentences? What is...? Like, just looking at the grammar, what is something that you notice? Well, you probably notice this is the only thing that's different. "The boy is naughty.", "The boy is being naughty." Okay? Now, one of these has to do with behaviour. The other one has to do with personality. Okay? So, if we look at: "The boy is naughty." what we really are saying is the boy is usually bad. It's a part of his personality. It's his feelings. He's... He's a bad boy, it's who he is. He's a naughty boy. That's a little bit different than: "The boy is being naughty." In this case, we're just looking at a behaviour or an action. The boy is usually a good boy, maybe. Maybe he... You know, he usually does what his parents tell him to, he listens to his teachers, he's a good boy, but that one day he is acting a certain way, his actions are naughty, his behaviour is naughty. The boy is being naughty. So, again, the difference is this is more about the boy... It's his personality type, and this is usually a temporary behaviour. Okay? It's not forever; it's just right now he's acting that way, but it's not who he is. So let's look at some other examples. "You are rude." Okay? Not you personally, but just an example. "You are rude." "Rude", for those of you who don't know, means not polite. So a person who's not polite is a rude person. Okay? If I say: "You are rude." I'm saying it's your personality. You're usually rude. You're a very rude person. It means this is who you are. Now, compare that to: "You are being rude." In this case, you're not usually a rude person; you're quite a polite person, maybe. But in this situation, your behaviour in this moment is rude. Okay? So, again, this is who you are; and this is your behaviour in a specific situation. So I'll give you an example. Okay? You know, I know someone who is always... Well, no, I don't actually know somebody. But imagine if there's somebody who's always picking their nose. We could say: "Ugh, that guy's rude. He's so rude." But if he, I guess does it once... Okay? If it's just a behaviour that happens only one time, you could say: "He's being rude." He's not always rude; it's just this one time. Here's another example: "He is a smartass." Versus: "He is being a smartass." A smartass is a person who tries to be funny, but they do it in kind of a not nice way. So it's almost like not-nice funny. So if you think about when you were a kid, maybe there were some smartasses in your class, those were the kids who always said things that made the teacher very angry. Okay? So those people are smartassess, they purposely try to make people angry. So if you say: "He is a smartass." it just means that's his character. He's usually this way, this is how he is. If you say: "He is being a smartass." it means maybe just this one time. It's his behaviour in this moment, but it's not usual for him. It's just right now. So let's do some work on this together, let's do some examples together. Okay, so now let's do some examples together. The first sentence I have: "I was careful when I drove." So when I drive a car, I'm careful. "I was careful when I drove." And again, "was" is the past tense for "be". Okay, so this is something I usually do, I'm a careful person, I drive very carefully. I want you to imagine this: Imagine if I'm not usually careful, but I see a police officer close to me. Okay? Maybe that might change the way I drive. So now I have a behaviour. How can I make this into a behaviour or an action that's not always true? If you said we can add something, you are right. What are we going to add? We're going to add "being", that "I was being careful when I drove." Let's look at the next one: "Jack is stupid." Jack is a stupid person. I'm sorry if any of you are named Jack, I don't mean you; this is just an example.

Improve your Writing: Show, Not Tell
Become a better writer, no matter what you're writing! I'll show you how to take simple, boring sentences and turn them to vibrant, expressive writing. As you practice this technique in your writing, you will find it carries over to your everyday spoken English as well. Before you know it, you'll be a more dynamic, compelling speaker and writer. Next, watch this video to improve your vocabulary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxjsWwgPjwM Take the quiz on this lesson at: https://www.engvid.com/english-writing-show-not-tell/ TRANSCRIPT Welcome back to engVid. Here we are with a writing lesson. We are looking at the skill of showing, not telling, and it's going to transform your writing as long as you put it into practice afterwards. "Show, not tell. What's he talking about?" When we're writing we want to avoid simple statements that don't really add any description or flavour. For example: "The man was stressed." [Snores] Boring. Instead, I want you to paint a picture, I really want you to describe the man is stressed without telling me that he is. So how can you do that? We're kind of trying to avoid this word, and describe it instead. So what's he doing? "The man was fidgeting. Ah, he's fidgeting. He's so stressed, he can't sort of stay still. And biting his nails." Okay? So pick out a couple of details that show how the person was. Next one: "The room was messy." Again, it's a simple, simple sentence. It's just one sort of main clause and it's not very interesting. Much better to describe the items in the room that make it messy. For example: "There was a leftover pizza, dirty clothes were strewn"... I'll write that word for you. That means they were covering the floor. "...and there were dirty plates and cups". Okay? These details give us the idea that it is messy. Example three: "The woman was confident." Okay, but it would be much more effective if you described how she was confident. So, how does she move? How do other people react to her? "She strode", that means she walked, but with purpose. Okay? So I've picked an interesting verb. "She strode into the room, and everyone turned their heads to notice her." Okay? Much clearer, more vivid idea of confidence than just saying she was confident. Example four: "The boy was careful." Tell us how he was careful. "He placed his favourite magazine in the top drawer of his cabinet." Okay? So we need to say exactly what he is placing, the object there has been missed out. "He placed"... There's no room for me to write it. You get the idea, he places his favourite book or magazine, and look how specific it is: "the top drawer of his cabinet". Next example: "The stadium was full." Again, I'm bored with this simple sentence construction. We need to make it more interesting. "The sound from the stadium was deafening", okay? And then give us some main action perhaps: "The sound from the stadium was deafening as the crowd rose up to chant the player's name." Okay? Give the sense that the stadium is full from what you can see and what you can hear. Okay? A couple of ones to describe weather. "It was hot." Okay? Well, a very young child could write a sentence like that, so if you're sort of a teenager or an adult, it's time to raise the bar. How can we tell that it is hot? Well: "The sun was causing damage to", "The sun was melting", "The sun was burning", "The sun was causing the lady's skin to turn red". Okay? Pick out details that show the effect. "It was cold. It was cold." How do we know it was cold? How cold did it feel? What can you see? "Drainpipes were freezing, ice was as thick as"... I don't know. "It was three inches thick." Whatever, you've got to show details rather than just stating things. -"It was windy." -"The umbrella was totally bent out of shape. The umbrella"-you know for keeping the rain off us-"was totally"-that means fully-"bent"-Yeah? Bent-"...out of shape", out of its normal position. "He found it funny." Right? How funny did he find it? Okay? Better to... For us to get the idea to picture what he was doing: "He was rolling around the floor in hysterics." Okay? When you're so... Find something so funny, you're like: [Laughs]. Okay? He can't control his body he finds it so funny. "Hysterics", that means like totally lost control. "Hysteria". Okay? Hysterics. "In hysterics" means finding something really, really funny. "The castle was captured." Right. I want to get a sense of drama. I want to imagine what's happening there at the castle. Is the king having his head cut off? Are the new army marching in? What's happening? "The new flag was hoisted up on high, greeted by a cheer from the crowd." Okay? Paint pictures, pick out details. Okay? It's good to have a range of adjectives, but how can you show those adjectives? How can you describe them instead? Thank you for watching today's video. Have a go at the quiz after this, and I'll see you very soon. Remember to subscribe. Bye.
Plagiarism ... Definition, Consequences and Examples
Don't get burned by plagiarism. It is important to understand what plagiarism is so you do not end up failing a course, ruining your career or getting into a legal battle over it. Essentially plagiarism occurs when you submit work using the ideas of others without giving appropriate credit to the source. It does not matter whether you plagiarized intentionally or not. It also does not matter if the source of plagiarism was a book, journal, website or something else. Plagiarism is a serious offense. In school, the consequence for plagiarism will depend on the policy at the school as well as the circumstances and extent of the offence. In all of the policies I have seen you get at minimum a "0" on the work that contains plagiarism, even if the plagiarism is minimal. Upon repeated offences the consequences become more severe. In the real world, plagiarism can ruin your career and discount your credibility as a professional. It also reflects negatively on your profession as a whole. You may also end up with legal charges against you depending on the nature of the offence. Anderson (2009) provides an example of someone who was suspended from their practice for plagiarism. The way in which credit is given will depend on the format of the work. What is important is that sources are credited for the ideas derived from them. For the purposes of this video APA will be used to illustrate some examples. In APA format citations are used to identify the origin of ideas. If word-for-word information is taken from a source, quotation marks must be used. In the APA book you can also find more information about the definition of plagiarism and self-plagiarism on page 15 and 16. In essays the most common form of plagiarism I see occurs when sentences or parts of sentences are copy and pasted from an article then cited incorrectly. The image on this slide is taken from an article. Even though I wrote the article, if I were to copy a significant portion of it word-for-word and put it in another essay or article without identifying it as a quotation that would be plagiarism -- Even if I cite it like it is on the left of this slide. In this example I simply removed a few words from the original source. That is self-plagiarism because those words have been previously published (APA, 2010). It would have been better to use quotation marks in this situation. Recall that for APA if more than 40 words are quoted you would use block quotations. When writing, it is preferred that you paraphrase except when it is absolutely necessary to use quotations. In general, if you have more than five major words in a row the same as the original source you either need to put it in as a quotation or work to further paraphrase the main ideas in the sentence. The previous example is not the only form of plagiarism. There are a number of things that constitute plagiarism. Another one of the less obvious forms of plagiarism is a failure to cite where your ideas originated. Yes, you can have your own critical thinking in a paper. However, whenever you get your idea from somewhere it is important to cite it. If you are having difficulty knowing when to cite your work seek help from a professor or resource center at your school. There are also some excellent resources online to help you. Probably the most obvious form of plagiarism occurs when information is directly copied from a source and is not cited. What other forms of plagiarism or cheating do you know of? Please comment below this video. Also be aware that other forms of dishonesty have the same penalties as plagiarism. Cheating is taken seriously. With advances in technology there is an increased awareness of the possibility of cheating and it is becoming easier to catch cheating. Just don't cheat. It isn't worth it. Academic institutions will have a policy outlining various forms of cheating. If an institution allows cheating to take place it discredits their reputation. Find out what the policy is at your institution and take a look at it so you know exactly what plagiarism is defined as and the process for dealing with it where you are. For further guidance regarding plagiarism please refer to these references or other publications. There is a lot of information about plagiarism on the Internet. Links to some good starting points are provided below. Remember to ask for help if you are unsure. Music from http://www.freestockmusic.com/ American Psychological Association (2010).

How SENTENCE STRESS changes meaning in English
What is sentence stress? How does it change the meaning of a sentence? In this video, I will teach you how saying a word louder and longer in a sentence can change the sentence's meaning. Many English learners don't listen for sentence stress and as a result, they don't fully understand what someone is saying. I will teach you how to recognize sentence stress and how it can change meaning. Then we will practice listening to sentences with different word stress and examine their meanings together. I'll share many examples so you'll be able to hear how native speakers use sentence stress, and how you can do it too! At the end of this video, you can practice more with our quiz at https://www.engvid.com/sentence-stress-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma and in today's video I am going to teach you how to become a better listener, and I'm going to do that by teaching you about something called "Sentence Stress". Okay? So I want you to think about the times you've listened to English, maybe in a movie, maybe you saw a movie, or maybe a TV show - was there ever a time where you didn't understand something? Maybe everybody laughed, maybe somebody suddenly got angry and you felt like you missed some of the meaning to why something happened. It might be because you're not listening enough to sentence stress. So, what is sentence stress? Well, let me show you. When we talk about stress in language, we're talking about making something louder and longer. Okay? So, for example, if I say the number "thirteen" versus "thirteen", even though they sound similar, they're different because I've put a different stress or a different emphasis on each part of the word. So this is in part a pronunciation lesson, but also really about listening and how to listen better. So I have here a sentence: "I love studying English." Now, it seems like a pretty straightforward sentence, but I can actually change the meaning of this sentence using sentence stress. Okay? So, by saying different parts of the sentence louder and longer I can actually change the meaning. So I'm going to give you an example. "I love studying English." What part did I say louder and longer? If you said: "I", you're correct, so I'm going to put a mark here to show sentence stress. "I love studying English." If you heard somebody say this it means that I love studying English, but my friend doesn't. Or I love studying English, but other people hate studying English. So I'm really emphasizing that I am, you know, maybe one of the only people. Okay? So, I love studying English. Now, this is a bit of a different meaning than if we move the stress-so I'll just erase that-to the word "love". Okay? So I want you to listen to how I say this: "I love studying English." So in this case "love" is the part I'm saying louder and longer. Okay? And now it has a different meaning. Even though it's the same sentence, just by saying a different part louder and longer I've changed the meaning. So: "I love studying English." What does that mean? If I'm focused on the word "love" it means I really want to emphasize that I don't just like English, I love English. English is my passion. I love it. I really, really, really like it a lot. Okay? Now, if we take the stress here and we move it to "studying": "I love studying English", okay? So now you hear "studying" is louder and longer, again, now we have a different meaning from when I said: "I love studying English", "I love studying English", "I love studying English", each of these means a different thing. "I love studying English" means I only love studying English. I'm emphasizing maybe I don't like using English, maybe I don't like, you know, English in conversation. Maybe I only like reading my book about English, but I don't actually like using it. Okay? Now, if we change the stress to "English" and now "English" is going to be louder and longer... Okay? So, for example: "I love studying English", "English" is louder and longer, now this has a new meaning, a fourth meaning. "I love studying English" means only English. Maybe I hate all other languages. I don't like studying French, I don't like studying Portuguese, I don't like studying Arabic. I only like studying English. Okay? So, as you can see, the way we pronounce these sentences adds meaning to them. It's not just the words that have meaning, it's also the way we use our voice, our intonation. Okay, so we're going to do some practice listening. I'm going to say a sentence and you're going to first listen to: What part of the sentence has the stress? What part of the stress is louder and longer? Okay? So let's do that with the next sentence first. Okay? "I like your painting. I like your painting." What part was the loud part? What part was the long part? "I like your painting." If you said: "your", you are correct. This part has the stress. Now, I have three different meanings that this sentence could mean. It could mean it's an okay painting. Okay?

How to change a verb into a noun!
http://www.engvid.com/ With the simple addition of '-ment' or '-ion' to a verb, it becomes a noun! Learn how to change a verb into a noun in this grammar lesson. It's pretty simple, once you understand how it works. Test your skills with the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/change-verbs-into-nouns/ TRANSCRIPT: Hello, my name is Ronnie. I am going to teach you some English. It's going to be great. It's going to be easy, I think. Something that a lot of you have difficulty with in English is nouns, verbs, adjectives, and all those other crazy, crazy things we have in English. I'm going to teach you two tricks that will help you, when you are trying to figure out if a word is a verb or a noun, or when to use a verb. Is it a noun? Do what? So today's lesson is the birth of a noun. You are going to take a verb, it's going to do some magical things, and by the end of the lesson it is going to become a noun, so birth of a noun. How to change a verb to a noun, the first thing we are going to do is have a look at the verbs. We have the verb "employ, develop, move, judge, advertise, and establish." Do you think you see a spelling mistake here? Are you wondering why this is an "s" and not a "z-ed," well, let me tell you something. In the UK also known as England, they would spell it with a zed, whereas in North America we spell it with an "s." So there is a spelling difference. And so, you might see it spelled with a "zed" or an "s." Both of them are correct, if you have spellcheck when you are typing something, it might go wrong. But you might have American spellcheck, so just be careful. So, either "zed" or "s" is correct. "Employ" do you know what that verb means? Have you heard that word, "employ?" It means use or work. The next one we have is "develop;" if you "develop" something it basically means you help to grow. The next one is move. I am moving my right hand, but not my left hand. That would cause much problem. The next one is judge. There's a noun of "judge" and a verb of "judge." To "judge" something means to give your opinion. The next one is "advertise." The "s" and the "zed" the pronunciation is the same. Don't worry. "Advertise" means to tell something, usually you do it for money. You "advertise" something on a website, or you advertise on TV to get a product, to make you money. The next one is "establish, establish means to make something. What we're going to do, two tricks. The first trick is we're going to take these verbs, and we are going to add four letters to make it a noun. The letters are "m-e-n-t." So we have the verb "employ." The noun changes to "employment." Did you just say mint and not m-e-n-t? I did, English pronunciation is difficult. In English we don't say employment, we actually say it like this word, "m-i-n-t." Like a breath mint. So all of these words you must spell with "m-e-n-t," but your pronunciation is going to be "m-i-n-t," like "mint, employment." The next one we have is a "development." "Employment" means job. "Development," we use it to mean an area that has been "developed." You could use it to say it's a building; this is a "development" of this country, or a building of a company. "Move," we have the noun of movement. "Move, move," not "move, move," do you know why I got distracted? Because, I was thinking of a Bob Marley song that's called "A Movement of the People, "movement" of the people. If anyone is a Bob Marley fan out there. "Movement" of people is a good way to remember what this word means. "Movement" basically means a group of people who try and change something in society, so a "movement" is a group of people. The next one is "judge, judgment." It means the same, the noun, and the verb. You give your opinion of something. "Advertisement," an "advertisement" you will see on the subway. You will see everywhere you go, everywhere you look. In the world, people are trying to sell you something in an "advertisement." We usually shorten the word, and just call it an "ad." Next one is "establish," changes to "establishment." For some reason I don't like the word "establishment." "Establishment" means something that has been "established." We usually use it in the form of government or politics; it can also mean a place like a restaurant. I like restaurants. The next trick, trick number one is you take the verb you change it to a noun using "m-e-n-t" or "m-i-n-t" "employment." The next one is this word, "act."

Intonation to Clarify and Correct
Typically in English, we emphasize (stress) content words and de-emphasize (destress) function words. But you can emphasize ANY word in a sentence if you have a reason to. One good reason is to clarify or correct someone. Watch Misha and Larissa give two funny examples of how to use your intonation to clarify or correct.

English for Beginners: Countable & Uncountable Nouns
Do you think English grammar is confusing? Ever wonder why can we say "a dollar" but we can't say "a money"? Why can we say "houses", but not "furnitures"? In this class, you will learn the grammar rules about countable and uncountable nouns in English, including when to use "a" or "an", when to add an "s" at the end of a noun to make it plural, and when you should NOT add an "s". You will also learn about the difference between "much" and "many". Test yourself with the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/countable-uncountable-nouns-english-grammar/ Watch next: FIX YOUR GRAMMAR MISTAKES! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnrAM9QZ90U&list=PLaNNx1k0ao1u-x_nKdKNh7cKALzelzXjY&index=40 #engvid #LearnEnglish #EnglishGrammar TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you about countable and uncountable nouns. We can also call these "count nouns" and "non-count nouns". So, let's begin by first talking about: What is a noun? So, a noun is a word that is a person... It can be a person, so: "Emma", that's a noun; "teacher", that's a noun. It can be a place. "Russia" is a noun. "School" is a noun. It can be an animal; a dog. "Dog" is a noun. The word "cat" is a noun. It can also be a thing. This marker... The word "marker" is a noun. Okay? And it can also be a feeling. "Happiness" is a noun. So, a noun is a person, a place, a thing, an object, an animal. There are many things that are nouns. What a noun is not is it's not an action, like a verb; it's not a description, like an adjective; and it's not a preposition, like the word "on" or "off". Okay? A noun is, like I've said before, one of these things. So, in English... Well, actually, first let's do something. Let's underline the nouns just to make sure we have this concept. So, my first sentence is: "Canada is a large country." So let's underline the nouns, here. Well, "Canada" is a place, so we know "Canada" is a noun; "is" is a verb; "large" - this is a description; "country". "Country" is a place; this is also a noun. "My teacher is funny". "Teacher" is a person, so this is a noun; "funny" is a description, it's an adjective, it's not a noun. "The dog", so we have "dog" is an animal; "cats", "cats" are nouns; and we have the word, here, "friends". The word "friend" is also a noun. Okay? So, these are all nouns. So, in English, we have two types of nouns; we have countable nouns and we have uncountable nouns. It's important to know if a noun is countable or uncountable, because this is going to tell us if we use words, like: "a" in front of the word, and it will also tell us which words we cannot use with these words. So... And whether or not we need to add an "s" to the end of the noun if there's more than one. So, in this video, we are going to talk about countable nouns with many examples and uncountable nouns. So, let's look at countable nouns first. Okay, so we're going to start with countable nouns first. So, the first thing you need to know with a countable noun is when we have a countable noun, we need to put an "a" or an "an" in front of it. So, for example: "I have a dog. I have a computer. I have a lamp. I have a chair." So, notice I'm putting "a" in front of all of these. If the noun starts with a vowel sound, so for example: "a" is a vowel, "e", "i", "o", "u" - these are all vowels. And if it starts with a vowel sound, then we use "an". "I have an apple. I have an egg. I have an ant." Okay? So, we use this if the first... The first sound of the word is a vowel. So, the second thing you need to know is that with countable nouns a lot of the time we can count them. Okay? So we can often... A countable noun is something you can count, or... Usually it's something, or an animal, or, you know, a place - it's something you can count. So, for example: "I have a book." This is one book. "I have two books.", "I have three books." So, this... You can count books and it's a countable noun. "I have two chairs. I have five dresses." These are all countable nouns. When we have more than one countable noun, so for example, here we have one, here we have two. If we have more than one-so two, three, four, five, six-we need to add an "s". This shows us that there is more than one. And also notice that we don't need this in front of the noun anymore. So, we cannot say: "a books", because the "s" means there's more than one, so this would not match. Okay. What else do we need? So, we need an "s" or an "es" if we have more than one of this type of object or noun. Here's another example: "I have one sister.", "I have three sisters." So, notice here, you can count the number of sisters I have, and so I've added an "s". Now, we have some exceptions. For example, the word "moose". You can count the number of moose, but we never add an "s". It's... It's a strange exception. In English, you'll notice we have a lot of exceptions. We break rules a lot of times in English and that's okay. It's the same with "fish".

Why you should tolerate intolerable ideas | Nadine Strossen
The opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily reflect the views of the Charles Koch Foundation, which encourages the expression of diverse viewpoints within a culture of civil discourse and mutual respect. Just because you disagree with something doesn't mean that it isn't true for someone else. - Former ACLU president Nadine Strossen argues that without freedom of expression we don't have freedom of speech. With some major college campuses disavowing "dangerous ideas" from certain speakers on campus, this can lead to a slippery slope wherein ideas—and even ways of life—can be marginalized entirely. - The Charles Koch Foundation is committed to understanding what drives intolerance and the best ways to cure it. The foundation supports interdisciplinary research to overcome intolerance, new models for peaceful interactions, and experiments that can heal fractured communities. For more information, visit charleskochfoundation.org/courageous-collaborations. - The opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily reflect the views of the Charles Koch Foundation, which encourages the expression of diverse viewpoints within a culture of civil discourse and mutual respect. Read more at BigThink.com: https://bigthink.com/Charles-Koch-Foundation/tolerating-intolerable-ideas Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Many people have contended that there is a paradox of why should we tolerate intolerant ideas. And the answer is that we have to engage in exploration and analysis of all ideas if we are going to honestly and sincerely reach our own conclusion as to which ideas we believe to be correct and which ideas we believe other people should adopt. I go back to John Stewart Mills classic essay called On Liberty in which he says here are the reasons why we should listen to even ideas that we believe to be completely wrong. And as somebody who is advocating tolerance for freedom even for the ideas that we hate, I would say an idea that I would hate would be an intolerance idea. So here's the reason why I think I should listen to that idea, paraphrasing Jon Stewart Mills. Number one, I may revise reviews after I listen to that idea. And I can give you a concrete example where that actually happened thanks to the silver lining of all of the protests on campus about free speech. Many students and faculty members even have asserted that freedom of speech should not be such a special important value in our society; we should not tolerate freedom for ideas that they consider to be dangerous ideas. And quite frankly to me it had always seemed so indisputably correct that we had to protect freedom for all ideas that I never really had grappled thoroughly with that contention. I recently wrote a book on the subject and in the process I had to articulate to myself why I reached that conclusion and I did so in a way that I persuaded myself, I hope that means I was persuasive to my audience, and I wouldn't of had to do that, I wouldn't have enriched my own understanding of my long standing position had I not been forced to grapple with the exact opposite contention. So, one possibility is that we will realize that our original ideas were wrong or at least could be improved, refined. And another possibility is that we will be reaffirmed in our adherence to our pre-existing ideas, but we when do so, we will understand them and appreciate them and articulate them with much more depth and vibrancy when they are the result, not just of unthinking reflexive orthodoxy: "Oh that's what I've always believed and that's what everybody else believes" but when we are forced to really examine them. And that forced examination comes through contact and conflict with challenges and questions and opposite ideas.
