oh look at the weather outside where has that beautiful sunshine gone please

please sunshine can you come back as soon as possible

here we go again yes it is English addict and we are live from the

birthplace of English which just happens to be England

hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in England how are you today are you ok I

hope so are you happy things are slowly beginning to go back to normal very very

slowly and just to prove it here we are once again with English addict live for

those who don't know who I am maybe you are wondering who is that strange man on

the screen who is it I don't know who he is

I don't recognise his face my name is Duncan I teach English on YouTube I've

been doing this forever such a long time and a such a long time many many years

in fact I won't tell you how many because you might accuse me of showing

off you might say mr. Duncan you are always blowing your own trumpet if a

person blows their own trumpet what you are saying is they are always showing

off about their achievements and the things they are able to do talking of

which we will be taking a look at words and phrases connected to that subject

the things you are able to do and the things you are unable to do they are

opposites and there are many phrases many words that we can use when we are

talking about ability and things you are not able to do of course as I always

believed from my own personal point of view we are all capable we are all able

to do something I think so we all have some talent we all have some

sort of ability we all have something that we are able to do you me everybody

so it's a rain day to day just like the carpenters

except today it is rainy days and Wednesdays always always get Mead so yes

the weather unfortunately is not looking good and that is one of the reasons why

I am back in the studio also don't forget I am here every day I have been

here every day since the start of this crazy time also shall we have a look in

the garden okay and there you can see the vert the bird feeder now the bird

feeder this morning was very busy there were birds all over this bird feeder but

of course now I have activated my camera the birds have all vanished

either that or mr. Steve has gone outside and now he's disturbing the

birds maybe that's the reason why yes if in doubt what I always say is if in

doubt blame mr. Steve you are now welcome to blame Steve for anything that

goes wrong so you can see it is raining oh hello we have a little bird there

thank you very much that bird came and then went very quickly it didn't want to

hang around I think I wasn't sure what that was actually I think it may have

been it may have been a marsh tit I'm not sure because it came so quickly and

then disappeared so there were birds all over this bird feeder and now they've

all disappeared typical isn't that just typical

it's so typical I've waited all morning to show you that bird feeder and then

the moment I turn the camera on they all vanish can you believe it I hope you are

not going to vanish I hope you are not going to disappear into thin air because

well to be honest with you I'm here and I hope you will stay with me as well

here we go again lots of people already on the live

stream watching and hopefully getting involved as well you are more than

welcome to get in touch on the live chat and it's very nice to see you here once

again on this Wednesday

due to duty Papa Papa Papa Papa Papa Papa Papa thank you ever such a lot for

clicking on me today I really do appreciate it thank you very much

Oh can I say hello to the live chat yes today we have a very special person who

has a very fast finger their finger is so fast you can't even see it it is

invisible the finger is moving so fast you can't even see it

what are you talking about miss mr. Duncan I'm talking about the live chat

and the fact that Zahran Alesi hello Zoran nice to see you here today

guess what you are first on today's live chat

Thank You Sauron also Vitesse is here you weren't first today there is someone

now who has a faster finger than you Lali Lali

moe-san also never give up never give up I like that never give up never say no

never back down never say never say die never say I can't do this

never quit never give up thank you very much also - lemon son hello lemon son

nice to see you here as well Konstantin Anna also Lali Lali

Zab Marsh is here as well hello mister danke I can't wait to see you well here

I am I hope I wasn't a big disappointment

when you first saw me maybe you thought yeah yeah what's that what is that I can

see on my screen unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this I was born

this way talking of which boris has another baby have you heard the news

boris has a little baby son I don't know how this is possible because I only

heard the news that Boris Johnson's

girlfriend wife I'm not quite sure was pregnant so it only seems like five or

six weeks ago since we found out that Boris Johnson's wife girlfriend was

pregnant so either she kept it a secret for a very long time

or this is some sort of new very fast development of a little baby that we

haven't heard it before mr. Duncan you shouldn't say things like that it's okay

I'm not being personal I'm not being rude I'm just curious so maybe maybe she

knew that she was pregnant a long time ago however they only announced the news

a few weeks ago so that's all I'm saying I'm not saying anything else please

don't attack me you have to be so careful what you say nowadays you really

do hello also - chin Tam hello chin tan I

like your name by the way chin tan did I pronounce your name

correctly I always worry at night when I'm in bed I am dreaming and sometimes I

have nightmares as well and not quite often I'm thinking did I pronounce those

names right did I pronounce them correctly on the live chat so sometimes

I do worry a lot about these things maybe too much flower s boy is here

today I like my echo I've missed my little echo hello - flower s Wow

it is so nice to see you

hello Noemi hello also Aniyah partridges here also

we have Cristina hello Cristina sorry mr. Duncan but today is the 29th of

April did I say the 28th is it the 29th today where did yesterday go is it

really the 29th oh my goodness I've got the day wrong I've got the day right but

not the date it is the 28th or 29th or who knows it might be Christmas Day for

all I know so now you can see the confusion that

everything is causing at the moment sometimes I can't remember what day of

the week it is and sometimes I can't remember what the date is

so it is that it is the 29th for those who were worried maybe you thought you

had gone back in time to the previous day it is the 29th can I just say it is

the 29th of April tomorrow is the last day of April and then on Friday it is

the 1st of May a brand new month although to be honest with you every day

during April has felt exactly the same hmm so that is my excuse it is the 29th

everyone is saying mr. Duncan you stupid man mr. Duncan you idiot it is the 29th

today ok ok I've got it I've got it I was wrong I got the date wrong it's

the 29th I don't know why I said the 28th I'm sorry about that

but to be up to be honest with you I'm surprised that I'm here at all standing

in front of the camera during this you know because everything is so confusing

at the moment I think you know why things are confusing right now Platina

you are not the type who shows off mr. Duncan Thank You Platini

I like to think I like to think I'm quite a modest person sometimes of

course you have to talk about your abilities the things you are able to do

sometimes you have to talk about them for example if you are going for a job

interview quite often you will have to sell yourself you'll have to sell your

abilities to another person so maybe if you went for a job interview

sometimes you have to show yourself you have to be willing to talk about your

abilities even though maybe some people might say it's a little arrogant it's a

it's a little big hated a person who is big-headed is a person who always talks

about the things they have or maybe the things they have achieved a person who

is always talking about themselves and the things they can do we might describe

them as big-headed they are a big head thank you also to

Reshma hello to you as well nice to see so many people already on the live chat

very nice indeed hello also to Marina I'm saying to

Marina marina do you

also we have Ana Ana Rita Moreno regain also josei from Spain also Luis Mendez

it's Luis Mendez is here today watching me on the livestream it's raining by the

way outside it is absolutely throwing it down if you remember late yesterday I

was actually outside yesterday trying my best to do my livestream from in the

garden unfortunately I wasn't having a very good day yesterday because it was

cold it was freezing cold and everything was quite unpleasant to say the least

but there you can see the view right now outside my window it is a very dull damp

day definitely I'm pretty sure of it

today we are talking about words connected to having ability having a

certain ability something you can do something you are good at a certain gift

or talent that you might have hello marina I have a bird feeder but

unfortunately no birds are coming this year I don't know why I wonder what type

of food you are putting out for the birds

so maybe it depends on what type of food you are actually putting out for the

birds so what food are you are you actually

putting outside certain types of food will only be eaten at certain times of

year so you might find during the winter the birds will feed on certain types of

food and then during the springtime or the summer the birds will eat another

type of food so it really does depend on what time of year it is

hello Connell hello also Irene nice to see you here as well

hello also - grace grace chin is here also we will be having a look at a

couple of my full English lessons just to let you know I have a YouTube channel

with lots and lots of video lessons and full English is something that I was

doing for a number of years there are around 40 episodes of my full English

lessons lots of subjects lots of fun lots of vivid explanations as well so I

will explain things to you normally in my full English lessons so we will be

taking a look at those in a little while

Andy hello Andy oh yes Andy is talking about

his experience during isolation I have been through thick and thin with my wife

with my lovely wife if you have been through thick and thin it means you've

been through all sorts of things thick thin the times when things were not so

good thick and thin the things when you I suppose the time when you have lots of

things and the time when you don't have lots of things thick and thin good times

and bad times ups and downs the ups and downs of life yes a very interesting

phrase that you will go through thick and thin thick and thin the good good

times and the bad times hello to sujin sujin says tomorrow here in South Korea

it is buddha's day and the next day i am also having a holiday so i am happy are

you still are you actually having your holiday so have you actually returned to

work because i know in certain parts of south korea many people now have gone

back to work many things are starting to return to normal so i hope you have a

nice holiday tomorrow and also the day after as well i hope you have a nice day

we have had a very long holiday almost too long can you believe that people are

actually complaining about all of this strange situation some people are

talking about feeling bored some people are even wishing they could go back to

work although i would imagine the reason for that is so they can start earning a

wage or earning money again so i can i can understand why

you would need to get back to work Christina says never say never you are

right you should never say never if there is something you want to do maybe

a certain profession maybe you can start off with a hobby like this so actually

this this thing I'm doing now started off as a hobby many many years ago I'm

not saying how long because people will say I'm showing off but many years ago I

started doing this and originally it was a hobby it was something I enjoy doing

besides my normal job I was also doing this on YouTube because it was the early

days of YouTube YouTube was just a little baby

hello also to Andy again mr. Duncan I think your lessons are a labor of life

we often say labor of love so if something is a labor of love it means it

is something you are doing with passion it comes from your heart

something you can't stop doing so yeah you might be right there you might be

right I would describe this as some sort of labor of love over the past few days

I have been doing this a lot so I would I would definitely say that this is some

sort of labor of love I think so mr. Duncan you are lost in the time counting

so you are very happy I think so although I I can't make any excuses I

have no excuse forgetting today's date wrong I have absolutely no excuse it is

not the 28th it is definitely the 29th of April so for those who are worried

maybe you are looking at your calendar and you can't understand why the

month has to 28th no don't worry it's my fault

me I will take the blame for that thank you also to Adrienne floorman hi

Adrienne nice to see you again hello mr. Duncan and and excuse me I

think I disturb you when I say that you wrote the wrong date on today's

livestream because we are it is not Wednesday the 28th of April it is

Wednesday the 29th of April yes I've got it now I've got it

look at the rain now outside oh my goodness the rain is really coming down

quite heavily and the poor birds also oh look at the poor birds they are really

struggling out there they've all disappeared they've gone to hide from

the rain oh my goodness I can actually hear the rain coming down on the roof of

my studio it is raining quite a lot at the moment

oh my goodness you can't actually see the rain on the camera but trust me it

is raining very heavily outside that's the reason why the birds aren't there

you see the birds aren't there because the rain is coming down so much dear I

feel very sorry for the birds at the moment because

I feel sorry for the birds at the moment because many of them are raising their

young they are raising their little chicks so out there at the moment the

rain is coming down torrential rain at the moment can you hear it

that noise is actually the rain falling on my house

well at least I'm here even though I got the date wrong at least I'm here and

that's the important thing Reza says I love to feed the birds thank

you very much

hello also to Salman hello Salman thank you very much as well

for your wishes and also to Jason Jason Lee thank you very much for joining me

today as well lots of people are here we will take a break for a few moments we

are going to take a look at one of my full English lessons for those who are

interested in the English language this is an excerpt from one of my full

English lessons lots of information lots of interesting things concerning the

English language do you know what a buzz word is do you ever use buzz words a

buzz word is a word or phrase that is seen as being common and contemporary a

fashionable phrase or word is a buzz word for example right now the word

empower or empowerment is used a lot to empower is to give someone the strength

or motivation to do something for themselves or to give someone a sense of

independence and self-worth to empower the young or the poor to empower women

to offer empowerment to those who are in need of help it would be safe to say

that empower is indeed a buzz word for this period of time

can you see what I'm doing here I appear to be running but I'm not moving

anywhere I'm running on the spot to run on the spot means that you are actively

doing it while staying in one place you can walk on the spot you can jump on the

spot in these cases the spot is the place we are doing these things on the

word spot can be used in other ways too you can be put on the spot this means

that you have been placed in an awkward situation with no warning for example if

a person asks you a question you were not expecting we can say that they have

put you on the spot to find yourself in a situation that is hard to deal with we

can say that you are on the spot then there is in the spotlight to be in the

spotlight means to be the center of attention something is being watched

carefully to scrutinize something or someone is to put it under the spotlight

we can also spot something this means to notice or see something to spot someone

in the street means that you notice them you have spotted them I spotted a

woodpecker in my garden yesterday you can also go spotting for example

Trainspotting or bird spotting this means that you are looking out for one

particular type of thing perhaps an unusual design of train or a rare bird

of course a spot can also be a mark on your skin a circular blemish or unusual

bump on your skin can be called a spot teenagers tend to get spots

some animals have spots in fact if you look carefully you will find that there

are spots everywhere

do you ever renege are you a person who sometimes reneged on a deal the word

renege is a verb that means to go back on your word or to change your mind

after agreeing to do something you say yes to something then later you change

your mind so you renege on your promise to renege

is to break your word and go back on your promise you have had a change of

heart so the thing you said you would do has changed we thought the deal was on

but then he came in this morning and renamed on it the word renege originated

in Latin and in its original form meant forcibly deny

oh my goodness I can't believe how fast and heavy the rain is coming down

outside by window but it is it is absolutely throwing it down right now

did it I hope you enjoyed that there are many English lessons on my youtube

stored on my channel and if you want to subscribe you are more than welcome to

today I was asked something I was asked a question a few days ago and it's

something that I've almost forgotten about however I have remembered today

I've remembered to show you some of my drawings many years ago I used to love

drawing I used to love sketching and also drawing pictures and quite often

these pictures would be wildlife pictures would you like to have a look

at one or two of my wildlife pictures okay here we go so here is the first one

so this is one of my pictures this is a beautiful stag deer that I drew many

years ago

that was interesting I don't know what happened then I think

I think the rain has got into my computer so that is one of my rare

paintings many drawings many sketches so that particular drawing is actually it

actually is a sketch that I did with ink so that is an ink drawing that I did of

a stag deer and I drew that I think I must have been around 18 or around 19

years old when I drew that jewelry by school years I was very interested in

drawing and also very interested in nature as well so there you can see one

of my drawings I did promise that I would show you the drawings he was

another one this is a barn owl so there it is another one of my drawings now

that one was in a very bad condition when I first found it so these drawings

had been touched or should I say stored away and unfortunately some of them

became damaged so that is one of my drawings of a barn owl and that was also

done in ink are used actual ink there are very interesting pens very useful

and unusual pens that you can buy for drawing with and some of them have very

fine nibs so the ends of the pens are very

fine and you can use ink to draw with something that people enjoy doing it

does take a lot of time to do it however ink drawings so that is one of

the mediums that I worked in I used to draw with

Inc here's another one oh this is a very familiar bird I'm sure you recognize

this particular bird this is one of my drawings I did of a little Robin once

again many years ago I did this I was around maybe eighteen or nineteen years

old I used to spend many hours drawing pictures and most of them were of birds

I'm going to see if I can find another one I'm going through my files as I

talked to you so please excuse me I'm trying to find another one of the

pictures I think actually that is it I think I've only got three of them I will

try to find some more at another time but for those who were interested mr.

Duncan please show us your drawings

consider it done there I've done it I might show some more if I

can find them

what why does that keep happening I didn't press anything then I'm sure

there is something going wrong here I didn't press that but I didn't press the

button honestly I didn't press that button it was supposed to be me coming

on not that Thank You Konstantin I am NOT

here to get your compliments before anyone accuses me of saying Oh mr.

Duncan you always like to hear people's compliments it isn't just that but

sometimes it is nice to share your abilities so I'm sure you also have

something that you are good at I'm sure there is something that you have an

ability something that you are able to do I'm pretty sure of it we will be

looking at words and phrases connected with ability very soon the live chat is

also quite busy at the moment have you ever thought about exhibiting your

drawings Thank You Kristina I used to be very crazy about Star Wars and I used to

do lots of drawings of the characters from Star Wars and I remember many years

ago when when the Empire Strikes Back was was showing it a local cinema in

Stafford I went along and it was something that I did I can't quite

believe I did it because I was quite a shy person when I was very young and we

are talking around 1980 so I would have been around 15 years old maybe even 14

so I was 14 years old and I went to the local cinema and I asked them I asked if

I could display my paintings and my little drawings that I'd done of some of

the Star Wars characters and they said yes I couldn't believe it so that's what

actually happened I did ask and they said yes I really thought they were

going to say no I thought they were going to just

laugh at me and tell me to get out but they didn't they said okay come on bring

your paintings put them up so that's what happened and that was way back in

1980 I was just a young lad I must have been around 14 maybe

maybe almost 15 years old and that is what I used to do to pass the time away

when I was hiding away from the world in my bedroom I used to love drawing very

much hello to Lewis Lewis mr. Duncan you have all kinds of talents some people

say that I am a jack-of-all-trades but a master of none have you ever heard

that expression we can say that a person is a jack-of-all-trades that means they

can do lots of different things however they are not very good at any of them so

they can do them to a certain degree they are they can do them however they

they are not a master of any of them so perhaps that's me maybe I don't know

hello - ash hello ash rush I am watching you from Iraq very nice to see you here

what is the difference between what do you want - something what do you want -

something to eat or what do you want to get something to eat or do you want to

get something to eat they are just different ways of saying the same thing

do you want to eat something so you are saying do you want to eat something so

that question is asking are you hungry are you hungry do you want to eat

something do you want to eat something it could be anything maybe a small snack

or a big meal do you want to get some to eat that is asking do you want to

actually go out to get something do you want to get something to eat so quite

often that means do you want to leave the house do you want to go somewhere

else and get something to eat so do you want to get something to eat it can also

say do you want to go into the kitchen and get some food do you want to get

something to eat so in that route that sense we are saying do you want to go

somewhere to get some food Platina mr. Duncan your drawings and pictures are

very good I had an owl baby in my flat at night

and his mother was calling to get him back I would imagine so sometimes when

animals are separated from their young they do become quite angry sometimes

even violent there have been many situations where people have walked

through fields here in the UK and in the field there were some cows

however the cows also had some little baby calves with them as well

and during that time you should never ever go near the cows at all because the

cows will attack they will actually attack you and there have been certain

situations where people have died they've actually been attacked by a cow

the cow has actually chased them and trampled over them and killed them

so cows stay away from the cows if they have any babies nearby because they will

act quite aggressively they will be aggressive they will do anything to

protect their young

you are a master of teaching English Thank You alil that is very kind of you

hello um hi everyone hello um trum nice to see you here today

would you like to see a very common item oh how strange I think the Sun has just

come out can you see that it's very strange a few moments ago it was

throwing it down the rain was coming down in buckets and now the Sun has come

out interesting very interesting oh yes look the birds are here the birds have

come yes they are coming back the birds have decided that they are hungry I

think I just saw a Robin did I see a Robin did you see the Robin did anyone

see the Robin on the bird feeder so the birds are slowly coming back after

that's huge downpour of rain we did have quite a lot of rainfall just now the

birds have gone again okay the birds have gone again they've all

disappeared it is almost as if they know that they are on camera it's almost as

if they can sense that someone is watching them mm-hmm maybe would you

like to see an everyday item this is something I've been doing for the past

few days except yesterday because I forgot here is something that's very

common and something that I love very much it is something that it might be

might be one of the best inventions ever is there something that you love using

in your life is there something you love using in your life oh look a green Finch

we have a green Finch it's a green Finch of

everyone it's a green Finch there is now a little green Finch eating from the

birdfeeder

isn't that nice how lovely is there a certain thing you love using maybe there

is a little piece of technology or maybe something you like using everyday here

is something that is very useful to me in my life can you see it it also makes

a very horrible noise so I will turn my microphone down a little bit so you can

hear the noise this particular thing is velcro and I think this is one of the

most useful things ever invented maybe the best thing to come along since the

wheel so this is Velcro velcro and it is something you use for fixing two things

together or maybe if you want to secure something and keep it firm and locked

you can use this material velcro so I love velcro very much in my studio I

often use velcro to secure my cables so this is something that I use quite a lot

velcro is today's common object and it is something you see everywhere quite

often you will see this on clothing or maybe on shoes as well especially

children's shoes so quite often children's shoes will have velcro on

them to make it easy for the child to fasten their shoes velcro that was

today's common object

some people describe me as a common object I don't know what you mean by

that I really don't know what you mean there are many words that we can use

many expressions that we can use to show that we can do something you are able

you have an ability you have the know-how so there are many many words

and phrases that we can use to show that you are able and there is the first one

so this particular phrase you are able it is showing that you can do something

you are able you have an ability you are able to do something maybe something

that is simple something that you see people doing everyday but you can you

can still do it and that is the important part so you

are able you can do it something you are able to do is something you are able to

achieve maybe something you can do maybe a type of skill so for example people

say mr. Duncan you are very good with your live stream I'm not sure about that

but it would appear that I have some ability I can do it you can tell

yourself as well you can sometimes say I can do it if you want to encourage

yourself if you want to encourage yourself to do something maybe something

you want to try maybe something you want to do or achieve you can tell yourself I

can do it I can do it I can do it like that you can do it I can do it we can

all do it we can say that a person who has

a certain ability we can say you have the know-how the know-how if you have

the know-how it means you have a certain ability you are able to do something you

can do it well so maybe a certain skill that you have learned maybe something

that you can talk about maybe a certain subject that you know a lot about you

have the know-how you have the know-how that means you are able to do something

you have the ability or you have the knowledge we can say that you have the

neck oh I like that one you have the neck if you have the Mac to do something

if you have the neck it means you have the ability you are able to do something

oh yes you are very good at that you you definitely have the knack yes you have

the knack you have the ability you have for know how you can do it you have the

skill so maybe a person who can do something you might say that you have

the skill skill ability something you are able to do maybe in your work maybe

a certain type of work maybe you are a person who creates things maybe you

create art maybe you create something that people can look at and admire such

as a sculpture perhaps you are good with computers you have good computer skills

so skill is a word we often use to show ability you are accomplished now this is

a very interesting phrase because accomplished means something you have

succeeded in doing so a person who is accomplished is a person who has

succeeded in learning some thing or maybe mastering something so if

you master something it means you are an expert or a professional you are very

good at doing it I suppose a good example is accomplished pianist so a

person who is very good at playing the piano is an accomplished pianist a

person who is accomplished they are a person who has a great deal of success

or they can do something very well accomplished and of course if you

accomplish something it means you gain a certain skill or maybe you've done

something that a lot of people have noticed you accomplish your goal you get

to the place that you want to be quite often when we are trying to learn

something we hope that we will accomplish the thing that we are trying

to do an accomplished person

accomplished person you are accomplished you are competent now this is an

interesting word competent a person who is competent is able they are able to do

something you are competent maybe a person who has learnt to drive a car

they spend many many months learning to drive a car and then one day they

realize that they can do it very well they no longer feel nervous or afraid of

doing it we can say that that person is now competent they are a competent

driver competent you have the ability you are able to do something you are

competent I like that one another one we can say that you are capable of doing

something you are capable you can do something

very well you are able to do it you are capable so if you have a certain skill

for example we can say that you are very capable

a person can be capable a person can be suitable for a certain job because they

are capable if you are able to do something then quite often we can say

that you are capable for that job you are suitable for doing it because you

are capable you are capable another one now oh here's another one you are

talented a person who has a certain talent is a person who has a certain

ability they are talented a person who is talented is very good at

a certain thing maybe they are very artistic maybe they can draw maybe a

person can sing very well we would describe them as talented they have

talent so the talent is the thing that you have you are describing the thing

that they are doing and it can be anything so maybe they are good at

singing good at dancing maybe they are very good at painting maybe a person has

a very good memory for words or names they have some sort of ability that they

keep in their brain there is a thing that they can do very well so it's not

just an action you can also be talented if you have a certain natural ability a

talented person some people say that talent is natural some people have a

natural talent something they didn't learn however they can do it you can say

that you have a natural talent you are talented you have a natural talent

the live chat is suddenly very busy oh hello everyone you are talented like you

mr. Duncan thank you very very much I am going to bathe later in the warm glow of

your lovely compliments I will be lying on the floor and I will be just so

ecstatic at the thought of all of those lovely compliments thank you very much

hello blue thunder hello blue thunder nice to see you back again haven't seen

you for a while can you open your Gmail there is something interesting on your

phone unfortunately I can't at the moment

because I'm slightly busy doing a live stream I would love to but I can't at

this very moment unfortunately I will look at it later whatever it is I don't

know what it is but I will look at it later Thank You blue thunder

hello Anna hello I believe because we have the real conversation other chats

other other chats have a lot of strange messages sometimes without any sense is

that the live chat well to be honest with you if you want to talk about

something on the live chat you can however as I always say try to show some

respect to the other people on here as well that is all I ask William

Shakespeare was very talented I suppose so yes he is a person who was

really I suppose you could say he was at the top of that profession if you are at

the top of something it means you have reached the point where you can't go any

further when we learned things sometimes we have to learn things slowly over a

long period of time and then eventually you will be very good at something you

will be so good you can't learn anything else

so there are certain things that a person can do well and we can say that

they are at the top at the top of their profession they can't really go any

higher because now they are so good at it they can't exceed what they have

achieved they can't go ahead or beat their level

of expertise oh look I've just noticed something wait there a moment there's

the view outside and there oh yes there are more birds coming now you can see

there are some green finches the green finches are quite busy at the moment

because they have lots of chicks that they are having to feed and they're also

you can see a black bird as well on the top left of your picture there is a

black bird and I'm hoping the black bird is going to try and eat some food no

he's gone bye-bye blackbird I was a little bit distracted then by the birds

I'm sorry about that I got slightly distracted there mr.

Duncan is very talented at giving classes thank you Peter

I'm not looking for compliments today by the way uni Kareena says oh hello

what a nice bookcase yes I am inside my tiny library I'm in my little library

surrounded by all sorts of books the only problem is that this isn't real I

created this myself hello to Lois again hello b-trees it is so hot in this

studio I forgot how hot this studio gets

sometimes and it really does if you have an ability we can say that we can say

that you have expertise you have expertise so if you

are good at one particular thing we can say that you have expertise you have

ability ability you have talent you have proficiency oh I like that word

proficiency you have talent you have proficiency you are good at doing

something so proficiency shows that you have an ability you are very good at

doing a certain thing you have aptitude aptitude is a very interesting word

because it means also you can do things and also think so

aptitude quite often refers to to logic or the ability to do something very well

in a certain way so we often see aptitude as an ability but also quite

often something you have knowledge of as well you have aptitude you are able to

do something very well capability you have capability you have something you

can do some people have many things they are good at some people have many

abilities your capability is how well you can do something your capability you

have competence the word competence is quite interesting because I always think

competence comes from the confidence that you have in yourself to do

something so if you are competent quite often it means you have the ability and

also the confidence to do something well oh look the black bird is now feeding

from the bird feeder this is what I wanted to show you so the bird is now

feeding from the bird feeder and this particular blackbird is

actually feeding its chicks as well you might notice oh he's gone the

Blackbird has gone I'm sure he will come back later so that is what is going on

in my garden at the moment I wanted to show you the bird feeder I hope you're

not too bored looking at it but at least it makes me feel excited to see the

birds feeding how to know what you can do how to know your abilities I think

that's a great question by the way that's a brilliant question as you grow

up how do you know what you are good at quite often your your natural skills or

your natural talent come from the things you are interested in so as I grew up in

my younger years I was interested in certain things and those things became

more and more important to me and then over time I realized that my interest

became a passion some sort of thing that I wanted to do something I wanted to try

to do some sort of skill some sort of ability that you want to do in your life

so quite often finding out what your skills are can sometimes be accidental

something you are interested in so for many years I was interested in taking

photographs I was always interested in scenery I was always interested in how a

photographer or a person who was using a film camera was capturing the world

around them it always fascinated me from a very early age I used to love watching

movies and TV shows and I was always interested in how they created that

effect how did they make that look the way it does how do they do it

so my natural interest became something else

it became something I wanted to try myself I wanted to do it myself so I

think sometimes your ability or your skill is something you discover by

accident or maybe it is something that you have always had an interest in

something that is interested you from an early age and then as you get older you

realize that you really do like doing that you like doing it a lot you really

do

adrián floorman says you are also accomplished I am now interested to find

out what Adrienne does oh now Adrienne has an interest in languages

I love languages I am able to talk Swedish French and also English so yes

you definitely have a skill you may have a natural skill or a natural talent

some people can learn things very quickly

certain things some people can absorb knowledge and information very quickly

whilst other people find it very hard to get the information to stay in their

brains so maybe Adrienne maybe you have a

talent maybe you have a natural ability at learning languages which is fantastic

you are very lucky

Andi says Mr Duncan do you remember the song imagine and also the line imagine

there's no heaven it's easy if you try a very famous song by John Lennon whoa

wait a moment we have a woodpecker there is a woodpecker feeding from the bird

feeder can you see it in the middle it is a male so that is a male woodpecker

it has decided to come into the garden and feed

from one of my bird feeders oh look at that

hello mr. woodpecker nice to see you here today

he looks like he's really hungry I think that woodpecker is very hungry ooh

oh yes the woodpecker is getting very excited he's thinking oh there is lots

of lovely seed in this feeder and now I want to fill my little stump my little

tummy with the with the seed isn't that nice so there is something surprising

something I wasn't expecting to see a male woodpecker gathering food oh yes

he's moved over now to the other side there he is and you can see that is a

male great spotted woodpecker you can see at the back of his head there is a

red mark and that means it is a male I think actually that is a young male a

very young woodpecker so the red at the back of his head is

slowly starting to come and it is slowly starting to become visible so that

woodpecker is male and I would say that it's not very old

isn't that nice a nice little bit of live nature taking place in the garden

Thank You mr. woodpecker it's nice to see you here we must say goodbye now to

the woodpecker we will see you later maybe bye mr. woodpecker bye I have a

feeling that actually is a young baby woodpecker it is a male woodpecker I

think it is not a very old one isn't it exciting I got very excited then sorry

about that I easily become distracted whenever I see something interesting on

my bird feeder I always become very distracted by it

so I hope you don't mind that I did that let's have a look at one of my full

English lessons this is another full English lesson this is an excerpt taken

from full English number nine and in this video you will see and hear lots of

interesting things come on Lady Liberty give us a nice smile say cheese

there can be no doubt about the popularity of photography as a hobby so

many people are taking it up now to take up something means to begin doing it as

a hobby activity or interest a serious hobbyist can be described as an amateur

so a person who takes photographs as a serious hobby can be described as an

amateur photographer it's amazing where a hobby can take you for example

my interest in video cameras and video photography led me to making these video

lessons something I have now been doing for many years so who knows where that

hobby will take you there is nothing stopping you from taking an enjoyable

pastime and turning it into a business to do something you enjoy can lead you

from being a keen amateur to a successful professional that is of

course as long as you keep at it and never give up do you have any

hobbies what interests do you have

isn't it funny how some words have different meanings for example the word

nursery this noun has many meanings it can be a room in a house for the use of

a very young child a child's playroom can be a nursery a nursery can be a

place where children are taken care of during the Working Day a nursery school

a place or natural habitat which breeds or supports animals this lake provides a

vast nursery for fish a nursery is also a place where young plants are grown for

sale or for planting elsewhere I bought this rosebush from the local

nursery the word nursery derived from the old french word for nurse which

itself is derived from the Latin word for nourish

halfway down the stairs is a step where I sit there isn't any other step quite

like it I'm not at the bottom I'm not at the top so this is the stair where I

always step halfway up the stairs isn't up and isn't down it isn't in the

nursery it isn't in the town and all sorts of funny thoughts run round my

head it isn't really anywhere it's somewhere else instead halfway down the

stairs is a stair where I sit there isn't any other stair quite like it I'm

not at the bottom I'm not at the top so this is the stair where I always stop

ah I hope you enjoyed that one of my full English lessons one of many on my

youtube channel

well isn't that nice the Sun has come out we've had all sorts of weather today

the Sun is now out it's very bright and cheerful outside my studio window right

now and I hope it is where you are as well I will be back with you tomorrow by

the way for those who are wondering yes I am back with you tomorrow normally I

am here on certain days of the week so normally I am here with you on Sunday

Wednesday and Friday from 2:00 p.m. UK time however at the moment I have been

with you every single day for the past 35 maybe 36 days I've been here every

day doing this so there is a slow return to normal we are slowly going back to

normality however I think it will take many weeks perhaps even many months to

get completely back to normal so I am trying my best to do a few things that

are like my normal lessons and maybe also some things that are different and

maybe a little bit of fun at the same time so I am trying to do both things

together hello Helena oh my goodness I must say in this strange time we have

renovated much in our house and I'm rather tired but I won't be missing the

live stream says Helena Thank You Helena so even though you are very busy at the

moment with renovation in your house you are still finding time to join me on my

live stream thank you very much that is so kind of you thanks a lot thank you

also to Carla hello Carla Carla gamal ski hello to you so earlier we talked

about things we are able to do but what about the opposite what

about being unable so the opposite of Abel is unable if you are unable to do

something it means you can't do it maybe it is something that you try to do

unfortunately it is too difficult sometimes the feeling of being unable to

do something can be frustrating so not only does this word relate to a certain

skill but also maybe something you want to do as well maybe a thing that you

want to do or a place you want to go to something you want to do so you are able

to travel around the world you are unable to travel around the world in

that case we are talking about opportunity or maybe the chance that

comes your way so if you are able to do something sometimes it means you have

the opportunity or maybe you always have the ability to do it and there are many

reasons for that some people might say if you are wealthy you have more

abilities you have more things that you are able to do than if you are not rich

sometimes that's true and sometimes it isn't hello English for to carry hello

English for to carry nice to see you here as well something you can do and

something you can't do something you are unable to do you can't do it so maybe we

can refer to an ability that you don't have or maybe a skill that you've tried

unfortunately you can't do it also may be an opportunity that comes your way

however unfortunately you have to say no I'm sorry I can't do it I can't do it

unfortunately I am unable to do that so sometimes we can be talking about our

skills sometimes we can be talking about our availability if you are able to do

something it means you are available you can do it if you can't do it

then it means you don't have the skill or maybe you are not available so able

and unable actually have many different uses in the english language hello

Reshma thank you so much mr. Duncan we love you you are awesome thank you very

much isn't that kind of you thanks a lot thank you very much it is very

interesting mr. Duncan that most of the painters were also talented in poetry

among other arts that is interesting actually you might find sometimes if you

have a certain ability it will mean that you will be able to do something else

so if you have an artistic talent quite often you will find that you are able to

do other things as well that may require the same skills

so maybe poetry and art might be related in the fact that you see the world in a

certain way maybe the way you see the world around you the way you see other

people behaving maybe you can see things around you that other people can't see

you have a way of looking at life you have a way of transmitting your thoughts

into paintings poetry or anything for that matter songwriting is another one a

person who can write songs quite often is very

good at poetry because when you think about it songwriting is very similar to

poetry or writing poetry hello Carla hello Andy hello also franceska people

who are very good at maths generally are good at learning languages I've heard

this before there is a certain type of brain that

has the ability to learn certain things a person can have a natural ability

natural talent something they are able to do naturally so they still have to

learn how to do it however the talent comes naturally it is very strange so

some people have very unusual brains they have different brains their brains

work in very different ways

hello also on drum hello pamel hello Pamela nice to see you back on the live

chat we are talking about ability and things you are unable to do we've

already talked about ability so now we are talking about things we are unable

to do things we can't do maybe because we don't have the skill or the ability

so you'd have no ability I always believe that everyone has a skill we are

all good at something sometimes we have to discover it sometimes it takes a long

time to find out what it is we are good at very similar to the question we had

earlier how do you know what you can do quite often you will explore different

types of skill or different types of ability or maybe things that you are

just interested in so sometimes the brain will actually lead you in a

certain direction because of the things you are naturally interested in

it is a very fascinating part of learning hello Anna sorry I have to go

to work see you later Anna bye Anna I hope you

have a good day and stay safe and happy as well thank you very much Anna for

joining me Kristina says I am not good at

literature and I am NOT good at mathematics so maybe those two things

are connected as far as you're concerned you don't have the skill skill it is a

word that is used quite often if we talk about a person with a certain ability

something you can do you have a skill maybe a sports personality maybe you are

very good at football maybe you are good at playing tennis it is a skill so

skills cover all sorts of things skills something you are good at is your skill

something you are able to do it can be natural or learned

hello Zeb Marsh my son has achieved greater depth in maths and he is really

good at learning French so there may be some sort of connection between people

who learn languages if they have a natural ability to learn languages and

also mathematics again it might relate to how their brain works there might be

a connection between those two things here are the opposite words now you are

incompetent a person who is incompetent is a person who is not very good at what

they do so maybe they have a job but they are

not very good at doing it they are incompetent they are not very good at

what they do oh look the black bird is back I I keep

getting distracted by the by the birds oh yes we have a goldfinch in the middle

so in the middle of the screen you can see a goldfinch a little Goldfinch and

on the right there is a black bird and I think it is feeding its chicks so I

would imagine somewhere in my garden there are some baby black birds being

fed I think so I know I keep being distracted mr. Duncan you are you are so

easily distracted by the birds I agree with you I was unable to fight mm-hmm

soo Jin says I was unable to light the lighter whereas when I was a child do

you mean the thing that you put in your hand to produce a flame lighter quite

often we use a lighter to light a cigarette or maybe to start a fire

there's one thing I'm not very good at I can't click my fingers Steve is very

good at it mr. Steve is very good at clicking his fingers but I can't I can't

do it I don't know how Steve can do it so some people can click their fingers

like that except I'm cheating I am cheating

I can't do this I can't click my fingers mr. Steve is very good at it but I can't

you see so there are things I can't do I can't do this I am unable to click my

fingers I can't do it some people can and some people can't

I cannot click my fingers I am unable to click my fingers however I can move my

eyebrows up and down like this I can move my eyebrows

independently from each other hmm hello tomorrow I speak German but my English I

wish it could be better well over time your English will get better it will all

you have to do is keep at it don't give up don't quit please hello

Karen Karen Gutierrez from Spain watching in Spain at the moment nice to

see you here Belarusian hello Belarusian nice to see you here I didn't notice you

on the live chat thank you very much for joining me again Belarusian says I can't

whistle I can whistle but sometimes I can't I think it depends on the the

conditions of the air it's strange isn't it so sometimes I can whistle very well

and other times I can't I will try it now I will see if I can whistle now

is that okay so I can whistle but sometimes I can't I don't know why but I

think sometimes if your lips are very dry or sometimes if your lips are very

wet sometimes it is hard to whistle but no I can't do this with my fingers I

can't click click my fingers I can't do it

apparently in China you should never whistle if you whistle

in China apparently it will attract ghosts I always used to be told off I

used to like having little whistle when I was in China and people would say mr.

Duncan you should not whistle it will attract ghosts so we all have whistle we

sorry we all we all have abilities things we can do things we cannot do we

all have certain types of ability so we can't do everything I can't do

everything I wouldn't say that I have lots and lots of talents there are many

things I can't do for example I can't drive a car I am useless at driving a

car I'm very good at crashing a car but I'm not very good at driving a car so

that is one of the things I can't do I don't drive I don't have a car I don't

drive a car so that is one of the things I don't do one of the one of the things

I can't do hello to Kadare Qaddafi Qaddafi Asaro it's not okay did I

pronounce your name alright hello I am from Benin which is in West

Africa hello Africa nice to see you here as well and also Kadare is it your first

time here is it I hope so Joe Fran your video and audio are very

good what kind of camera and microphone do you use well I have lots of equipment

so all of the equipment that I use for my videos and here in the studio I have

lots of equipment so I am surrounded by things and those things allow my sound

to sound very nice indeed that's how I do it so I have lots of different

cameras lots of different microphones if I'm outside sometimes you have to be

careful if you are recording outside because of the wind so I have special

microphones that allow me to record outside even if it's windy so there are

many different types of equipment

Adrian Oh Adrian says I would not be able to make a public speech some people

can some people can't I remember many years ago I used to stand up in front of

hundreds of people and I would give lessons to hundreds sometimes I always

remember visiting a school and I had to stand in front of half of the school and

give a lesson sometimes public speaking is difficult it is doing anything in

public doing anything doing anything where people are watching you can be

very very difficult to do hello Francesca mr. Duncan if you if you are

driving and you looked out the window at a bird it would be a mess yes I think so

I think sometimes I am very easily distracted by things so maybe that's the

reason why I don't drive a car at least I'm being honest about it so I don't

drive a car because I don't think I'm I would be very good at it

it's sort of concentration you have to sort of drive and also concentrate on

the road ahead I don't think I could do that I do like being a passenger I like

sitting in the car where mr. Steve is driving I love sitting in the car and I

love looking out the window I like looking out of the window of the car as

we move along and all of the countryside and the landscape is going by I always

find that amazingly interesting I am always fascinated by the

countryside or the landscape if I'm moving in a car I love it hello from

Azerbaijan hello to you Zor hello to you nice to see you here

today Carla ride a bicycle I can ride a

bicycle I started riding a bicycle when I was very young

and that led me to become very interested in motorbikes so I had a

motorbike for many years I used to love riding my motorbike however I don't

drive a car but I love motorbikes there are some very interesting photographs of

me sitting on my motorbike maybe you've seen them maybe you haven't

hello Francisco hello Anna hello also Andy star mr. Duncan it's

time to enjoy the fruits of your labor I think so sometimes when you do

something it is quite satisfying to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor

maybe if you are a farmer you can literally enjoy the fruits of

your labor because you are busy growing things

maybe you grow apples or oranges so all of the work that you do to create those

beautiful fruits those beautiful types of fruit such as oranges apples pears

you can look and you can enjoy the fruits of your labor and of course we

can use the word fruit to show something that has occurred it is the outcome of

something you have done quite often something you have worked hard to

achieve the fruits of your labor hello if you are able to do something is it

the same as can do something again the words can be used in different ways so

to be able to do something means you can do it so actually they are pretty much

synonymous with each other they are synonymous so they can be used

literally as the same word you can do it you are able to do it I allow you to do

it so again if you are able to do something maybe you have to get

permission to do it maybe you have to ask a person if you can do something am

I able can I is it possible so the words can and able quite often can be used as

alternatives for each other hello Belarusian my friend asked her to

teach her to drive when her husband was ill she said I have to take him I have

to take him to the doctor and I don't know how to drive I can see that being a

very big problem yes so that is another reason why being able

to drive is a good thing because maybe one day you will have to use that skill

to help another person I never thought of that before you have made me think of

something so if something happened to mr. Steve and maybe he had to get to the

hospital very quickly I wouldn't be able to take them take him to the hospital

because I can't drive so yes that is that is interesting the rain was falling

yesterday and today I was upset and disappointed however there was one

person who was very pleased about the rain mr. Steve was really happy he was

excited yesterday when the rain was falling he was at the window watching

the rain and he was he was so excited about it he was saying yes good good

it's raining my lovely grass seed will start to grow my lovely grass will begin

to grow so at the weekend mr. Steve planted some new grass in the garden

some seeds that he put on the ground even though many of the black birds have

been eating them don't tell mr. Steve but a lot of his lawn seed or grass seed

has actually been eaten by the birds so Steve was very excited yesterday very

excited because it was raining and now he knows that his new grass will begin

to grow I can't say that I was pleased I was not pleased at all Adrian if I

remember you had an accident on your motorbike and therefore you decided to

sell it is that true I didn't have an accident fortunately however I nearly

had an accident when I came back from China I started riding my motorcycle

on the road to game but I realized that during those years that I wasn't in the

UK people on the road started driving like crazy people so I decided that I

didn't want to ride my motorbike on the UK roads anymore because I thought it

was very unsafe I didn't feel safe when I was riding my motorbike however over

the years many of my friends have had accidents on their motorbikes one of my

friends from school my best friend from school was actually killed on his

motorbike he had a terrible accident way back in when was it I think it was 1992

I want to say 1992 I think you had a terrible accident and unfortunately he

did not survive Canole I have a feeling you are skipping my messages on purpose

mr. Duncan hello Connell I'm not you know me better than that you know that I

would never ignore you Connell Connell what is your message please tell me the

message please send your message to me and I will read it so don't worry I'm

not ignoring you sometimes the messages move very quickly

so Connell what is your what is your message send your message to me now and

I will read it Beatrice was also happy for the rain

because my plants needed the water a lot I think so that is the reason why mr.

Steve was excited yesterday because he knows now his grass will start growing

color and also Susie car is here sorry about your friend it's okay don't worry

it's okay I am over it now but it was a shock at the time many years ago I think

it was 1992 it happened and yes it was quite awful quite awful

but it didn't stop me from riding a motorbike for many years afterwards I

was still interested in motorbikes and eventually I had my own motorbike and

thinking now I can still I can still see myself riding the motorbike in some of

the most terrible weather conditions I used to go out on my motorbike when

there was snow on the ground and I would still go on the road I'm on my motorbike

I don't know why I always found it very exciting

I always felt quite excited by the feeling of riding a motorbike however

not anymore I am now older I am an older person I

have learned my lesson and now I prefer to be safe it is better to be safe than

sorry that's what they say mr. Steve has a lot of skills says franceska that is

true however there is one thing he can't do

he is not very good at painting yes do you remember the story I told you about

Steve when he was painting a garage door he made such a terrible mess I can't

begin to tell you how bad he did he's not very good at painting I think

sometimes Steve rushes what he's doing sometimes Steve will rush and quite

often if you rush your job if you rush something you start making mistakes so I

think that's what happened with Steve I think he was rushing he was doing things

too quickly and he made lots of mistakes Oh Christina says I was driving or

riding a motorbike years ago it was a Yamaha Yamaha mine was as

looky I had a lovely Suzuki trial bike or trail bike and it's oh I used to lift

my motorbike so much I bought it brand new

it was brand new sparkling new and

something very embarrassing happened just after I bought my brand new bike my

new motorbike it was all shiny and new I hadn't even gone on the road yet

riding it I hadn't ridden it and I took it out of

the garage and as I was moving it it slipped out of my hand and my my poor

motorbike fell on the ground and part of the brake lever so the brakes you you

you have to press levers levers or levers if you are American one of the

levers broke off so don't ask me how I managed to break and damaged my

motorbike before I even rode it only I could do that very embarrassing even

more embarrassing I had to phone up the place

I had to phone the shop where I bought the motorcycle from and tell them that

I've just broken my motorbike even though I only just brought it I would I

I'd only just bought at home I only had it for like two or three days and I

managed to break it damaged it without even riding it only I could do that

crazy Jeff ran what is the key point of speaking English confidently I always I

am always confident in writing but not in speaking can I just say it is the

most difficult part of learning any language whatever the language it

doesn't matter what the language is French

Spanish English speaking the language is the hardest part because it is like

performing it is like giving a performance so when you speak when you

use a language you are actually performing it is a little bit like

performing that is one of the reasons why people don't like standing up in

front of others and they have to give a speech so talking in front of many

people is also a very hard thing to do

hello Connell we love you mr. Duncan all of my family my daughter asset and also

Fatima and also my nieces and nephews love you very much thank you Connell

thank you very much for your lovely message sorry I didn't see it earlier

but the live chat was moving very quickly we love you all of my family can

I say hello to Connell and your daughter both of your daughters is that and also

Fatima hello to you and I'm glad to see you enjoy my live English streams I'm

back tomorrow by the way I will be back with you tomorrow

uni karena says at least mr. Steve tried to do the painting he did try

unfortunately he also failed and I will never let him forget it I will never let

him forget about it because it was me who had to repair all of the mess that

he'd made I had to put it right if you put it right

it means you correct the thing that was done badly so if something was done

badly you put it right you correct all of the mistakes you put it right

Ernesto says I have a Vespa yeah I love Vespers you used to see Vespers

Vespa scooters around in the UK during the lates

maybe the late 50s during the 1960's you would see lots of people riding around

on Vespa scooters vespers you see them a lot in Italy hello Anna hello also to

Zab I am struggling to form mixed tenses in English when you are

using tense it really depends on what you are expressing the basic form of any

tense is future present and past so those are the basic tenses so each tense

is showing when something has happened is happening or will happen so in that

sense that particular type of tense is showing time time

hello ts in Southeast Asia almost everybody has a motorbike or scooter and

also the driving license oh the driving licence from one country

can be used everywhere in Southeast Asia I like that that's pretty cool I like

that very much so here we have the British past that the British driving

licence which has nothing to do with the passport nothing to do with that they

are separate things

hello also to Platina you have to exercise your drawers in order to relax

them and to be able to produce the English sounds I make exercises and then

make pronunciation exercises Platina that is a very good point many years ago

that was a strange sound I can't do it now many years ago I used

to do exercises certain exercises when I was trying to feel confident about

something I was about to say something I was about to talk about so there are

certain exercises that you can do to relax your mouth before you start

talking so yes I think that's a very good thing very good thing indeed

hello mr. Duncan my teacher used to say that through listening we would collect

passive vocabulary when we start to talk in English then it will become active

learning passively is something that we do anyway every day in our lives if you

receive information from around you whatever it is you are receiving it

passively so we passively learn all the time even if we don't even realize it we

might not even realize that we are doing it so sometimes we can learn passively

without realising that we are doing it and this is one of the reasons why I

like making these lessons I like doing my live streams because it gives you a

chance to listen to English being spoken and of course it is live as well so you

have the extra excitement of knowing everything I do and say is live and

spontaneous so anything could happen anything trying and fail failing is

normal but not trying at all is the worst thing of all you are right as I

said at the start of today's lesson never never say give up never give up

never say never always try try something maybe you want

to draw a picture try give it a try you might be very good at it

you might have some hidden talent that you are not aware of imagine that

imagine having some sort of talent or ability that you didn't realize you had

some people discover that they can sing very well some people discover that they

enjoy writing so you can sometimes discover new abilities never be afraid

to try something that can change your life in a positive way a positive way

your voice sounds tired please drink some water I will be drinking lots of

water in a moment because it's almost time for me to go I have two more

minutes and I will see you tomorrow yes I am back tomorrow it is the last day of

April tomorrow we have reached the 30th of April tomorrow

I'm pretty sure tomorrow is the 30th I will have to check and make sure so

tomorrow I will get the date right even though I got it wrong today and I will

correct it later I will put it right I made a little mistake I unfortunately

put the wrong date on today's livestream so yes it is the 29th today which means

tomorrow is the 30th and I will be back with you tomorrow you have to discover

your talent so you have to try yes some people think about doing it but they

never do it you never know you never know what you can do until you try to do
