yes i know i'm late before anyone says mr duncan you are late

i know i'm late i've noticed that i am late

today here we go again yes it is another english addict

live from the birthplace of english which just happens to be oh my goodness

england

wow hello here we go again

hi everybody this is mr duncan in england

how are you today are you okay i hope so are you happy are you feeling happy

today i hope you are feeling happy i hope you have a spring in your step

and a big smile on your face here we go again yes it is another

english addict with myself mr duncan for those wondering who this strange

looking man is on your screen right now my name is

duncan i talk about english i teach english we discuss

the english language we talk about all sorts of things

in fact i am not your usual english teacher there are some different

things going on here and one of the biggest

differences of all is that we are live right

now yes i know i am a little bit late today

i'm slightly late because i've been rushing around

i've had a busy week i had my birthday on wednesday and then yesterday we went

away for the day we had a lovely day oh

i i will say one thing the weather this week

has been amazing we have had some wonderful weather

some dramatic weather as well it's it's been it's been a very mixed

week for weather to be honest we've had all

sorts of weather it's been hot it's been humid we've also had a lot of

rain a lot of thunder and lightning at night

but yesterday we had a super duper day i will tell you more about that

later on here we go again yes we have made it all the way to the end of the week

it's friday

yes we've made it all the way to the end of the week and i hope you are feeling

good today

the weather today is not too good it's gloomy cloudy

it's still quite hot as well however we are indoors you may have noticed already

i am in the studio did you see our little

video message that we left yesterday showing you where

we were we had a little trip yesterday i will be honest with you one of the

things i've been really missing during this crazy period of time

is the ability to to drive off and enjoy the scenery

of a different place now i know what you're going to say mr duncan you

already live in a nice place however it is also nice to explore it is nice to

get out and about and that's what we did

yesterday so steve has been off this week

as well so we took the opportunity yesterday

to go to one of our most favourite places can you guess where that place is

well if you watched yesterday's message you will know exactly

where we were yesterday we went to one of our most favourite places a

place called lake vernwe which is

in wales it is the most amazing place a beautiful scenic part

of wales and also we went we went on a little walk

as well and we took in some of the beautiful

landscape and also some of the beautiful sights

as well and here you can see this is something that i recorded

yesterday on my mobile phone as we were walking along one of the

small rivers near

to lake vyrnwy and you can see the sun was out yesterday and everything was

looking lovely very tranquil there were some people

around there were a lot of visitors i must be

honest with you there were many visitors yesterday of course we were also

visiting as well so i'm not complaining because i know

that we were also visiting that particular place and of

course as i mentioned there he is oh

hello mr steve we can see you but what is over here oh let's have a look shall

we ah i see there is

the famous lake vyrnwy dam so there it is the dam that sometimes

is overflowing with water but as you can see there

because we've had quite a lot of sunlight a lot of hot sunshine

and also a lot of rain as well i was surprised

i was very surprised that there was no water flowing

over the edge of the dam but there it is the dam

at lake vyrnwy looking very nice we did also manage to get something to

eat as well we went to a nearby place

to get some coffee and then later on we went along to the hotel that we

normally stay at if we are visiting this place we

normally stay over however at the moment things are not

normal so instead we actually sat outside

so the hotel actually has well what they've done is they have

created a large picnic area so people can still

visit the hotel and they can sit outside and

they can enjoy some food outdoors

and you will notice once again mr steve sitting at one of the tables there he is

so as you can see there were tables outside

for us to sit at and also they were selling food

outside as well so we were able to sit down

quite comfortably and also quite safely as well so there was

social distancing taking place as you can see all of the seats

and the tables were quite far away from each other

and that was what we did yesterday afternoon

after having a lovely walk and here is mr steve

have a look closely at mr steve can you see him sitting

by the lake so there he is yesterday wearing his shorts now i know

some people get very excited when they see mr steve shorts

i don't want you to get too excited but i know

that many people do get rather excited when they see mr steve

in his shorts and of course i was also there as well sitting

by the lake as well

and that is actually where we recorded our little message yesterday so we

actually recorded a short video message yesterday

i don't know if you saw it but it is now available on my youtube channel

and as i mentioned there is also social distancing taking place

as well and you can notice from this particular sign in fact

this was something that we found on our table

so you can see that wales has some very strict laws

concerning social distancing so just like we used to do

in england

two meters apart is the distance that you have to keep

however i think here in england it is now one meter

but in wales the laws are slightly different

so you can't meet in large groups you have to stay far away from other

people you have to keep your distance however

it was safe to sit outside and enjoy a meal

or maybe some light refreshments which is what we did yesterday there you can

see so that is where we actually sat

yesterday and we had a lovely trip we went to one of our most favorite

places lake vernon we and that is one of the

photographs i took yesterday looking through the dam into the

distance i always think that tower the tower in

the distance always looks a little bit like rapunzel's

tower the tower in which rapunzel was kept prisoner i always think so

so there it was that was what we did yesterday we are

actually going to do a little bit more of that

tomorrow i've just noticed something my camera

has stopped working how strange i've had some strange problems recently

with my camera equipment and i've just noticed

that my camera has just stopped working how strange

there are some very strange things happening at the moment

in fact there might be a problem with my live stream right now

something has actually gone wrong

please excuse me if you can't hear me there is a reason for it and that is

because my live stream has stopped working

i knew there was going to be a problem today i really did

i had a horrible feeling that something was going to go

seriously wrong and guess what it has it has gone wrong

oh dear that's not good

i think it might be all right now are we back

oh it looks like it's working again

no i still don't have my main camera it stopped working completely

something terrible has happened here

you might be able to hear me but unfortunately i can't operate my

computer it has literally stopped working

as i'm standing here in front of you unfortunately

so i'm not actually sure what i'm going to do right now

come on

hmm interesting so the first thing you're going to

notice is i look very strange you see that's what's

happened that's what's happened

i had a horrible feeling today something was going to go wrong and guess what

it has if you remember last week we had a few problems last week

with the camera as well some things were going wrong last week

with the camera and i think the same thing

is actually happening today i think we might have a slight problem

with one of my cameras in the studio for which i apologize

everyone is saying mr duncan everything is all right

well from where i'm sitting things do not look all right

definitely not

and it's the same problem again that i had the other day

which was the main camera very interesting

just a moment i'm going to try something

if this doesn't work then i don't know what i'm going to do

um interesting very intriguing

very strange i did test the equipment before i came on

and everything was working all right ah oh okay then it looks as if we are back

to normal i do apologize for that i'm very sorry

ever so sorry but it looks like it's working okay now

there is obviously a fault there is something wrong

with this computer it might be the computer it might also

be something to do with one of my cameras i think

there is a slight problem anyway it seems to be working now

thank goodness we are back i apologize for that i'm very sorry

it's not very professional is it anyway we're back

yes i'm here i can see myself now that's good i'm always relieved

to see that everything is now working all right

almost here we go then we are back oh yes 25 past

break yesterday we went along to a lovely part of wales

benin june eunice says what does it mean obviously well when we say that

something is obvious it means it is very clear it is

something you can see it is something that is clear obvious

so when we say obviously we are saying that something is very clear

i don't need to explain that thing because it is obvious it is

clear there is no need to explain what is going on because it is obvious

very obvious hello also vitas hello to beatriz hello also

the sentence game you look very well today

i am very well i feel very well because i had a lovely day out in the

fresh air very nice hello philippo

hello philippo nice to see you here on the live stream

live english every sunday wednesday friday from 2 p.m uk

time that is when we are on for those who are wondering it's very nice to see

you here thank you for joining me we had a slight

technical problem earlier but now everything is all right

hello filippo have you ever been to the usa

i have i've never been to the united states never

never been to the usa ever in my life

shivam hello shivam shivan kumar ray is also here on the live chat

thank you very much let's have a look at some strange english words

shall we because the english language is full

of all sorts of weird and wonderful words so let's

take a few moments to have a look at some strange

english words here is the first weird word very strange

the first word is insight in sight as you can see the spelling

is quite simple it's an easy word to spell

in sight the word insight means provoke you are encouraging

someone to behave in a certain way you incite a certain action

you provoke an action to take place you are encouraging people to behave

in a certain way you might incite violence you might encourage people to

commit crime you incite you

provoke you do or say something that will make other people react in a

certain way you are inciting something

maybe you incite riots you incite violence so quite often we

will use this in a negative way

so a negative action that has been encouraged

by other people we can say it has been incited you incite

you provoke you create a situation with your own action

here's another interesting word some strange

english words for a friday afternoon

oh i think perhaps i think i've shown this one

before but i just love saying it to be honest this word

jiggery pokery a little bit of jiggery pokery deceitful

behavior to behave in a deceptive way you are doing

something you are maybe misleading someone

by the things you say or do there is some jiggery pokery going on

the action of being deceitful your behavior is deceitful

if you deceive someone it means you lie you say something that is not true you

say something that is not real something that you are trying to

make another person believe we can say that it is jiggery pokery oh

i like that one this is often used in british english by the way

here's another one degenerate to degenerate if you

degenerate it means you weaken you become worse maybe if you have a

certain condition maybe an illness or maybe you have

something that is happening because of your

age something will slowly over time cause you

to become weak and frail you degenerate you weaken

you worsen your situation slowly becomes worse you begin to become

weak because of something becoming worse

quite often quite quite often old age can cause you

to degenerate or a serious illness here's another one oh cacophony

cacophony i like this word another unusual

word but we do use these words i am often asked mr duncan do we really

use these words in english yes we do cacophony there it is

it means disharmony so something that is creating

maybe a situation where people are becoming anxious

or upset or maybe angry at each other we can say that there is a cacophony

cacophony quite often this will express disharmony people are not

getting along they are disagreeing they are becoming

maybe hateful towards each other hello nar dear today it is my mother's

birthday hello and congratulations to nod here and

especially your mother because it is her birthday today

congratulations to you i wish i had a little song that i could

sing but i won't but can i just say

it is your mum's birthday today happy birthday to your mother

thank you nadio

the loud sound of music creates a cacophony yes

thank you nessar that's a good suggestion

when i sing there is a cacophony says lolly lolly really what are you

saying there are you saying that you're singing is

not very good i'm not sure maybe you are

here's another one here's another word

oh now this one has an interesting spelling but also

it has an interesting pronunciation as well scintilla

scintilla a scintilla of something a small trace of

feeling or emotion maybe you are expressing

your unhappiness or your disinterest you don't have a scintilla

of interest you don't have any interest in something so the word

scintilla means small trace of feeling

a small trace of feeling maybe a type of emotion that you are

feeling but only slightly a very small feeling of

emotion maybe interest maybe happiness you you almost feel

unhappy in fact you might say i don't have a scintilla of happiness

i don't have even a small trace of that of that particular feeling

not very nice

oh hello pedro pedro belmont is here today

also palmyra is here and we have irene oh belarusia is here

as well thank you belarusio for your lovely message i saw your

message and don't worry i know that you have other things going

on at the moment in your life so i know you are very busy during this

particular time but thank you very much for your lovely

message and of course i do appreciate it can i say hello to mohsen as well

thank you for your message too so many messages

i i am still reading them to be honest i'm still looking at your messages

because there are so many of them

it might take me another couple of days to read all of your lovely birthday

messages but thank you once again thank you

francesco says scintilla is italian it means

sparkle yes that's right so maybe a small

spark of emotion so yes you can also express scintilla in that way

a small amount of something so when we talk about emotions we often talk about

having the feeling of a certain emotion

or maybe the spark of a certain emotion so that is why

in italian it means sparkle so it does have a very similar meaning

you are right thank you very much for that

shall we have another one here's another word

oh i like this word mr duncan

symbiosis symbiosis nature you will often see symbiosis

take place maybe two creatures who live side by side but they are able

to help each other or survive by taking advantage of each other

so they live together and maybe a certain quality or an ability

or the way one animal functions is able to help

the other animal so there is normally a mutual

reliance or maybe there is an advantage that both can gain from being together

symbiosis i love that word i love that word i think it comes from

greek i'm sure someone will correct me i think it means alongside or

along side with i'm sure it has something to do with that

symbiosis to be together you survive you live

and you also help each other normally in the way you live or the way

you survive symbiosis it does happen quite often

in nature it really does and another one oh oh dear

so this one is a negative word this particular word that i'm showing you now

is negative we often use this word to describe a person who is bitter

or they are spiteful they have maybe a bad attitude towards other

people rancor i like this word

rancor if you have rancor you have bitterness spite you have

hatred you express bitterness towards another person rancor

i like that word hack lau says all the words you love are so

strange well i love all english words to be

honest i love them all but i am intrigued by unusual words i

must be honest with you i do find myself quite intrigued

by unusual words pedro is going to the supermarket now

take care pedro don't forget to take your mask

we have to wear our mask when we go to the shops

if we go to the supermarket we must wear our masks

hello to ts hello ts nice to see you here as well

here's another one here is another word so we have two more and then we'll take

a break we are going to visit a lovely place in

a few moments here's another one oh pendulus

this describes the appearance of something

things that are loosely hanging something that hangs down like that

maybe well if you imagine apples in the tree hanging down heavily

and loosely you can say that they are pendulous pendulous normally when

something hangs down it will swing as well swing

so something that is loosely hanging and also something that is swinging as

well it is loose it is pendulous

pendulous something that is loose and swinging very nice

isn't that lovely and one more one more strange word

fortitude something that we all need at the moment

during this crazy period of time something we all need right now is a

little bit of fortitude when we say fortitude

we mean courage we mean strength perseverance

you have fortitude fortitude you have courage you have strength

very nice so there they are some strange english words to start us off

on today's english addict we have the sentence game coming a

little bit later on as well i hope you will join me

for the sentence game as well a little bit later on i have a feeling

that my technical problem has disappeared

i hope so anyway stay tuned don't go away

stay with us because we have lots of other things coming today

right now we are going to take a look at one of my video lessons this is an

excerpt from one of my special lessons when i

went to a certain place and if you were

watching earlier you will know that that place is

very special very dear very special to me it is also

a very beautiful place

hi everybody this is mr duncan in england how are you today

are you okay i hope so are you happy i hope so here i am on my

short summer break taking a well-deserved rest

at lake vernwe in wales and you are very welcome to join me

lake vernery lies to the south of the snowdonia mountains

in an area known as montgomery show just like many parts of wales it

consists of wide open countryside with lush green hills and many cattle

farms

the lake itself makes up a large part of the nature reserve and

country estate

the nature reserve is a haven for tourists

hikers cyclists and bird watchers who come to this beauty spot each summer

to get away from life in the busy towns and cities for a while

the village is very small and only consists of a few

houses a cafe some gift shops and an information center

the lake itself is artificial it is in fact a reservoir which was

constructed towards the end of the 19th century

construction of the large dam began in 1881

and it took seven years to complete

the feat of constructing this enormous structure took many months of designing

keeping the millions of gallons of water captured would need a very tall and wide

building indeed it would also have to be strong

there are two very noticeable features at the reservoir

the first being the tall tower which from afar looks a little like something

from a fairy tale the purpose of this tower is to strain

the water before it makes its way along the aqueduct an aqueduct is a pipe

or channel used for transferring water over

long distances the aqueduct from lake fernweh is mostly

hidden underground the straining tower is not

open to the public the other very obvious feature at lake

fernweh is of course the dam

this is what keeps all the water in place

the dam is 44 meters high from the bottom of the valley

and is 39 meters thick at the base water is constantly being released from

the dam so as to prevent the nearby river vern

wheat from drying out

between five and ten million gallons of water

is released through this valve every day when the water level of the reservoir

becomes too high this whole side of the dam is

transformed into a huge foaming waterfall as the excess water is

steadily released so as to prevent the surrounding land

from becoming waterlogged

it is common for people to confuse the word dam

with dyke they are actually not the same thing

a dam is used to keep water in it captures the water while a dike is

used to keep water out it is often used as a defense against

the sea when the tide is unusually high

wales is well known for its stunning scenery

its expansive green valleys and the rolling hills

play host to countless wild animals but no creature is more commonly seen

here in wales than the sheep

the distinctive white dots created by the many flocks

are a common sight here especially during springtime

when the lambs are born this period is called the lambing season

yes you can see the full version of that lesson

on my youtube channel it is available to watch the full version

and of course you can find the link under this video

as well

it's a strange one today it really is a very strange one today because

i've had some slight technical issues with the camera and the connection all

sorts of strange things are happening also

youtube have started experimenting with their new

live stream page so they have been making many things many changes

over time some of them positive and some of them

not so positive that's all i'm saying about that i hope you are feeling good

today it is friday we are going to play the sentence game

shortly and if you missed yesterday's message

we we sent a little message yesterday on youtube

and it is available also on my channel as well i hope you can see me all right

we've had some problems today with the equipment and also the

connection as well has been a little strange and i have no

idea why sometimes when things go wrong

technically it is hard to find out what the problem

is sometimes it is very easy but today there are there are lots of

things going on that i don't quite understand if i was honest with you

alessandra says oh i watched this video some years ago well i did make it a long

time ago i think it must be 10

or maybe 11 years ago that particular video

a very long time ago but that was where we were yesterday you see

that is the actual place we were in yesterday

and shall we have another look so you will see mr steve

so there is mr steve saying hello and this is yesterday

on our little day trip we were both feeling quite restless yesterday

so we decided to go somewhere and that is what we did yesterday

we went to visit one of our most favorite

scenic places in the country and that is where we spent the whole day

in fact we had a lovely day we were very lucky with the weather

hello to background music hello background music

i want to learn english how can i get started

i want to learn the british accent well of course

accents are just the sounds of speech however

what you really need if you want to learn english you need

your basic vocabulary you need to have some words that you can use in your

sentences and then you start off with simple

sentences easy sentences and then slowly

over time you build on those words that is what you

you do you see that is what you do if you want to learn

english and if you want to copy my accent

if you want to speak with a british accent well that is also

something you need to do over time you listen

to other people using english with different accents if you want a

british accent then you can listen to other people

using a british accent and also it's important

to listen to yourself as well don't be afraid

to listen to your own voice even though it seems strange

it is a very useful thing to do it really is very useful

we are going to play the sentence game in a moment i hope you are ready

we are playing with the letter e today the letter e

is what we are going to be using in today's

sentence game there are some words missing from our sentences

and what you have to do is guess what the words are

so all of the missing words today begin with the letter e

e for easy will today's sentence game be easy

i don't know maybe you can have the word everything everything

is good everything is going well

thank you very much for your company today lovely to see you here i know it's

friday i know maybe you have things to do

places to go people to see i'll opportunities

to get

hello hacklau oh i see e yes i suppose you could say e

as well malia says encourage oh yes that also begins

with the letter e to encourage someone it means you give

them support you give them positive support you

encourage someone you encourage someone to learn english you encourage

someone to pursue a certain career he is what we are looking at today

emotional oh i was feeling very emotional

on wednesday because i was another year older

was i happy about it not really if i was honest why do you have a smiley

face on your tie well i thought it would look nice you

see nice and happy that is the whole point of doing this

is to spread a little bit of joy a little bit of happiness

you can have too much misery sometimes i think

so sometimes you have to have a little bit of happiness as well

do you agree i hope so

hello randa randa saber says encounter ah yes

if you meet someone if you meet a certain situation if you have to

deal with a certain situation something you

must overcome you encounter something

you meet something a thing that can be a situation a

serious problem you encounter difficulty you encounter a problem

you encounter another person you meet them you come across them

we also have experience yes don't forget there is no such thing as

bad experience all experience in your life is good

experience there is always something to learn

from experience good and bad i think so here we go then

it's time to play the sentence game are you ready to play the sentence game i

hope so i will press the button and then we will

get underway with today's

sentence game it's here right now here we go then are you ready to play

the sentence game i hope so i really do

so we are looking at words beginning with e and don't forget we

always have my little friend

so the cockerel today looks slightly different

in fact i've just noticed he's very different

he spoke something

for an hour about his something adventure the time is approaching

it is almost time to reveal the answers

thank you mr cockerell for saying hello as well so we have

two answers here we are looking for two words

in this particular sentence game the answers are

okay eloquently he spoke eloquently for an hour

about his european adventure so someone who was traveling across

europe maybe they were visiting europe maybe they were going around europe

visiting lots of different places your european adventure

he spoke eloquently if you speak eloquently

it it means you speak in an interesting way

a way that is nice to listen to something that is relaxing

eloquent so a person who speaks eloquently

is speaking in a soft polite clear relaxing way

and he spoke all about his european adventure

european nessar says yeah both of my answers are correct

he spoke eloquently for an hour about his european adventure

so there it was the second sentence game for today

we had quite a few correct answers coming through there in fact

we had oh we had mountain of course you could have said mountain

adventure the only problem is it doesn't begin with e you see so we

were looking for letters or words beginning with

e you see

your european adventure you can have a lot of adventure a lot of

experiences a lot of fun traveling around europe

here's another one are you ready for the next sentence game here it is

right now oh okay then

they will not something us we will something to find them

they will not something us we will something

to find them we are looking for five letters

and nine letters both of the words begin with the letter e

that is what we are looking for today so all of the letters

or all of the words begin with the letter e

e for everything

e for evening e for

energy

they will not something us we will something to find them

so it sounds as if you are looking for someone

in this particular sentence maybe you are

looking for someone interesting

we have a lot of answers coming through slowly

oh i see oh vitesse says egyptian yes you could i

suppose you could have an egyptian adventure if you went to

luis mendes

wow everyone has gone very quiet i think maybe this is

difficult it would appear that this particular sentence game is difficult

i thought this was not too difficult but in fact

it would appear it would appear that it is quite hard

i'm sorry about that it's too hard mr duncan

belarusia is getting angry with me it's too hard mr duncan i will try to

give you some easy ones later maybe they will not

something us we will something to find them so maybe if you are looking

in a certain place what are they doing what are they

doing how can you actually describe

i will give you a few more seconds and then we

will have the answer mr cockerell will say hello

in a moment they will not something us we will something to

find them this is a very difficult one apparently okay then i will give you the

answer right now come on mr cockrell come and

they will not something us we will something

to find them but what is the answer it's coming up right now oh

mr duncan oh

yes they will not evade us evade

if you evade something you are hiding away you are

trying to to not be found you are trying your best

to hide away they will not evade us evade

evade i suppose you could also say avoid as well but the only problem is avoid

begins with a evade they will not evade us we will

endeavor to find them evade you hide away

you are trying your best not to be found you will hide in a place

where you cannot be found

evade endeavor they will not evade us we will endeavor

to find them endeavor of course is to try your best

you try hard you work hard you struggle to do something you will do

whatever it takes you will endeavor i will do it

i will do it i will do it you will endeavor

to do something they will not evade us we will endeavor to find them

and there it was shall we have another one we have i

now ah

i wonder if i wonder if anyone would say this about me

i don't know i'm not sure his spectacles you see

spectacles uh his spectacles gave him and

something appearance

his spectacles gave him an something appearance

a person who wears glasses quite often looks

in a certain way they have a certain image

when we see someone wearing glasses we might

make a judgment about them his spectacles

gave him an something appearance but what we are looking for

seven letters

benjalune says elegant i suppose elegant yes elegant

elegant it begins with e elegant but there is something very specific

something very definite about a person who wears glasses

when a person is wearing spectacles glasses

there is normally

an image that we imagine we think ah he's wearing glasses she

is wearing glasses we normally make a certain assumption hello maria

julia rodriguez hello to you thanks for joining us today

we are playing the sentence game you have joined us

at a very interesting moment we have the sentence game his spectacles gave

him an something appearance

so what do you think when you see someone wearing glasses

there is something that you always think when you see them

interesting we have no no correct answers

now i thought this was this one was easy i thought this was quite easy

again again you see interesting yes i think if tomek was here

if tomek or sergio were here i think they would both get it right i

think so

interesting partapp educate you are very close you see you are very

close that is a good one you are very close

par tap mika oh hello mika welcome again

nice to see you back i hope things are okay in japan where you are

hmm interesting when you see a person wearing glasses

you often think oh that person looks

what

we've had a lot of people say elegant yes i suppose you might say elegant a

person who wears glasses looks elegant but there is another word as

well another word beginning with the letter e

hmm len fung says elegant we have a lot of

people saying elegant interesting i will give you the answer

to the sentence game right

now wow you were very quick

excited cockerel i think so um oh we have some correct

answers well done nice oh it looks as if vitas

and corey as well well done you got it right

thank you and the answer to the sentence game

this particular sentence game is

erudite a person who looks erudite or a person who appears to

be erudite is learned

or educated a person who might be smart or maybe they have a lot of knowledge

erudite i love that word erudite erudite

so there is a nice word you might also say that that

is an interesting english word as well an erudite person is a person who

appears educated smart and clever

but not me i'm not talking about me don't worry

congratulations vitesse you were first with

the correct answer to that very good

nice one and even if you don't know the answer don't worry you will still learn

something new today

we have time for maybe two more maybe two more and then i will be going

here is the next sentence game oh dear oh this one

this one might be difficult

i'm going to get into trouble with this oh oh dear

i'm hoping that someone

i'm hoping that someone will get this right we are looking for words

beginning with e

e for everywhere e for everlasting

something that is everlasting lasts forever or at least

for a very long time everlasting you might have your everlasting love

or perhaps

your everlasting gobstopper

this something item could something up something the need for surgery

yes it sounds like we are talking about something that will change

the way in which something is done this something item could something up

something the need for surgery so maybe here we are talking about

something that might be making a change you are changing from one

thing to another this something item

could something up something the need for surgery

hmm interesting it looks as if we have one of the words one of the words

it looks like yes so we have one word that a lot of people are getting right

well done

eight three and eleven eight letters three letters

and also eleven letters as well a big word a big word

at the end

i know what you're going to say mr duncan you're making it too

hard it's too difficult

it doesn't matter even if you don't know the answer i will still give you the

answer and then you will learn something new so i think it's great i

really do hello smart smart says

hi sweet duncan do you mean me i'm embarrassed now

you've embarrassed me by the way i will be back with you

we had yesterday very nice

mr duncan you are right it is too hard

hello mohsen hello mr duncan sorry i am late

that's okay i'm sure you have things to do in your life

just like we all do so don't worry don't worry hmm interesting

i don't think anyone is going to get this right

so i wasn't sure if this was easy or hard i wasn't really sure

you see but it would appear that maybe maybe this is actually hard

this something item could something up something the need

for surgery i will give you a few more moments

and then we will have the answer

stand by mr cockerell stand by yes okay then

jamie raymau says this is too easy okay well if it's too easy

please give me the answer please give me the answers

come on if it's so easy if it's too easy give me the answers

come on jamie put your money where your mouth is

as we say

if you want to prove that it's easy you must put your money where your mouth

is come on we need proof please prove it

we are getting some very interesting suggestions

very interesting the answer coming up in a moment

are you ready mr cockerell we are going soon

the answer is

you were late then where were you what was going on then

mr cockrell was late here we go then here's the answer to this

particular sentence game we have three missing words this

something item could something up something the need

for surgery many people got one of the words right

the answers are bing oh mr duncan that is very very

very spiteful how could you do that um so now you're saying oh mr duncan now

we can see it yes you see this

everyday item could end up eradicating the need

for surgery eradicate you are eradicating something

you are making something disappear something that slowly disappears maybe a

certain action will cause something to slowly

vanish maybe a situation maybe an action maybe something that many people

do over time they will stop doing it

you are eradicating something you can eradicate an object

you can er eradicate a method of doing something

this everyday item could end up eradicating the need

for surgery so something that might change the way

something happens and if you notice at the start of the sentence we have

every day something that is every day is common

a common thing something you see quite often something you see on a daily basis

you see every day so an everyday item is something you see often maybe

you might say a chair a chair is an everyday item

it is everyday item it is something you see

quite often valentina says i've got to

go

i've got to go see you on sunday valentina that's okay

see you on sunday i will be here and so will steve he will also be here on

sunday

we have time for one more one more sentence game and then i will

go i'm going but where where am i going i'm going just over

there just over there there over there that's

where i'm going unfortunately you won't be able to see

me because i will be off

here's the last one would you like the last sentence game

okay here it comes right now oh oh okay then

oh interesting i think a lot of people are going to get this one

i hope so so maybe some of you will actually get the answer right here

i hope so they believe that the something of the something

occurred under the ocean bed or you could also say the ocean floor

so underneath the bottom of the ocean the ocean bed

the ocean bed or maybe the ocean floor under the ocean bed

they believe that the something of the something occurred under

the ocean bed but what

hello mr deck snow hello mr deck and snow

i really do appreciate your messages thank you very much

i did see your message that you sent as well

thank you ah mika mika has made a guess at one of the

words beginning with e

so both of these missing words begin with e

and that's what we're looking at and we are looking for

right now

interesting does anyone know the answer to the first one so what about the first

word i wonder what that could be

hello humble spear don't forget to take a cup of water i have my water

here can you see it so yes i do have my water

right here i have my bottle of water to keep me refreshed and hydrated

like this you see

lovely they believe that the something of the something

occurred under the ocean bed hmm but what could it be

we are looking for two missing words both beginning with

e nine letters and ten letters

interesting thank you very much for your company today

i really do appreciate it i hope it's been okay

we had some slight problems earlier i'm going to find out i'm going to try and

find out why we had some problems earlier

there is part of my studio that is not working properly

so that should keep me busy for the rest of the day

and also tomorrow hopefully i will be able to sort it out

um oh we have some correct answers coming through

thank you very much we have correct answers coming through right now

very good

interesting the answer is coming up in a few moments and then i will go

wow today's lesson has gone by very quickly i think

it really hurts time's up

they believe that the something of the something

occurred under the ocean bed mika got

one of the words correct

we also had

anna kobe oh thank you anna kobe you were correct yes also thomas

and beatrice also zeburka oh quite a few

you see quite a few

also mohammed rafi as well interesting the answer to today's

final sentence game is and earthquake epicenter

and earthquake the point of origin under the ground where an earthquake

begins or the strongest point of an

earthquake quite often the place where it is the strongest or

worst they believe that the epicenter of the earthquake occurred

under the ocean bed the epicenter epicenter so the epicenter

is where the earthquake is at its strongest the epicenter of something is

where something is the most fierce

or where something is the strongest the epicenter

they believe that the epicenter of the earthquake

occurred under the ocean bed epicenter and of course earthquake do you get

earthquakes in england i have been asked this question many times

we don't we don't have earthquakes although sometimes the earth does move

slightly sometimes we have things called earth

tremors so a tremor is slight movement so it isn't very strong

but we can sometimes in this country we can have

earth tremors so the ground will move slightly but normally it doesn't cause

any damage tremor we have earth tremors

so no we don't have earthquakes in england we don't i suppose some

people might say we are lucky because of that and that is it that is

not only the end of the sentence game it's also

the end of me

well just for today not forever i hope you've enjoyed today's live

stream thank you very much for your company

i hope it's been interesting

mikas says knowing the epicenter of an earthquake

is important for us yes sometimes you can you can work out where

an earthquake might occur so it is sometimes possible to do that

palmyra says once i experienced an earthquake in italy

it was not a pleasure it was not a pleasure i've never

experienced an earthquake never but we have had earth

tremors so earth tremors when the ground moves or shakes

slightly so we do have them some sometimes
