mmm here we are again oh hello there am I on time I think today I actually

started my live stream at exactly 2 o'clock which might be the first time

ever well maybe not here we go then it is

time once more to improve your English your English listening your English

speaking and we can all have a little bit of fun at the same time yes it is

English addict live from the birthplace of English which just happens to be

England

bbbb thank you for clicking on me hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in England

how are you today are you ok I hope so are you happy I really hope you are

feeling happy today because we are here together again live across YouTube it is

another edition of English addict with a slight difference you may have already

noticed I am here with you on Tuesday instead of tomorrow and the reason for

that is tomorrow we are doing something very unusual tomorrow will be the 4th

anniversary of my first ever live stream so tomorrow will be the day that all

this started this live nonsense began on the 15th of July 2016 it started so what

we're doing tomorrow we're doing something a little different tomorrow we

are going to sit down together so you can still join me on the live chat but

we are going to watch the first-ever live stream that I did way back in 2016

it is a long one now I'm not sure at the moment

what to do about the time so way back in 2016 my live streams used to begin at 1

p.m. so I'm not sure if I should start it at 1 p.m. tomorrow as well instead of

2 p.m. the other thing to remember is it is over 3 hours long so my first ever

live stream is very long so that is a warning just to let you know that we

will be sitting through 3 hours of a repeated live stream however it will be

the first ever live stream that I did I sat just over there in my chair

presenting my first ever live stream so we will be doing this together

we can watch and also we can chat at the same time

and I will be joining you as well on the live chat so we will be spending all of

that time together so I will still be able to communicate with you on the live

chat however we will be watching every agonizing second every awful moment of

my first ever live stream and all I can say is I think I looked a little bit

nervous now one or two people said yesterday when you start something for

the first time you always feel nervous you always feel a little worried about

how well it is going to turn out which is normal so I do think it is normal to

feel worried apprehensive I like that word may be concerned may be nervous so

so yes we will see tomorrow we will see every moment of my first ever live

stream tomorrow it will be with you I will be sitting with you live on the

chat and we will watch it together I think I've almost forgotten what the

first-ever live stream was like I do remember some of it I remember feeling

nervous I remember feeling slightly afraid

especially during those few seconds before the live stream began so just

before it started I could feel my stomach going over we often say that we

have butterflies you get butterflies in your stomach and that's how I felt

during my first ever live stream when I when I started it four years ago

tomorrow it all began and we will be watching it this week of course I'm

doing streams everyday so I will be with you

tomorrow with our special three hours sitting together watching the first-ever

live stream and of course I will be with you as well on Thursday and also Friday

with our usual Friday English addict for those who are wondering what this is my

name is mr. Duncan there it is on the screen and I talk about the English

language I talk about all sorts of things in fact sometimes we discuss

certain areas of English sometimes we will look at new words or phrases for

example having butterflies in your stomach as a way of expressing

nervousness or fear you have butterflies in your stomach that's what it feels

like it feels like lots of things fluttering around inside you and also we

chat to each other as well so it is unusual it is a little bit strange

because we have English addict today which just happens to be Tuesday

we are back together again

Tuesday it feels very strange doing my English addict on Tuesday because

normally I am with you on Sunday Wednesday and Friday with English addict

but today well I fought I thought it would be kind and fair to have English

addict today because tomorrow there won't be one

there won't be an English addict tomorrow because we are sitting together

watching my first ever live stream I'm not sure if it's a good idea or a bad

idea I still haven't decided if it's good or bad we will see what happens

but I will be with you live anyway tomorrow on the live chat typing some

messages and you are more than welcome to get involved tomorrow and of course

today as well hello to the live chat I wonder who was first on today's

livestream oh hello I think it was most said hello Mohsen nice to see you here

let me just check to make sure I think it was hello Mouse CERN also be trees

and also Mikkel and a sad hello to you you were first on today's live chat

welcome

welcome you all have very fast fingers that's all I can say nice to see you

here I hope you are having a good day here in the UK by the way the weather is

not looking very good at the moment it's a bit gloomy so we had some lovely

weather on Sunday I got really excited because I thought the weather was

changing however yesterday and also today the weather has been awful not too

not too good it doesn't feel like summer so there is the view out of the window

right now it is gloomy dull some people might say dismal but that is it

sometimes you have to take the cards that you are dealt you have no choice

unfortunately so that's what we're doing today we are also playing the sentence

game so normally we do this on Wednesday but as I've already explained we are not

doing it as normal so today we are playing the sentence game and we will be

using the letter B so that is what we are using today we are looking at the

letter B so today's sentence game concerns this letter the letter B so

what I will be doing I will be showing you some sentences some English

sentences with some words missing and all of those words begin with this

letter the letter B so I hope you will be joining me you will stay with me you

will stick around for the sentence game that coming up later on also don't

forget you can subscribe as well you can subscribe to my youtube channel as well

all you have to do is click the subscribe button

and it's as simple as that really and I suppose if you also want well I suppose

you can also give me a big like as well would you like to give me a like I

really hope so a like would be ever so nice as well give me a big thumbs up to

show that you care and I will be well I'll be very pleased to be honest I will

be over the moon in fact hello to Marley oh hello Basma

or basmalah hello to you as well lolli lolli Meeker nice to see you here

today nice to see you here

hello Donna Luis Mendez oh hello Luis Mendez thank you for joining me today

mog mog we also have Myrna Yin wali hello Mann Mann Yente wali I hope I

pronounced your name right watching in Rwanda hello to Rwanda and thank you for

joining me here live from the birthplace it is this is where it all started well

not here not in my studio but the English

language was born in this country England

it is the birthplace of the English language and I am a person who speaks

English as his native language that is what I do and that is the reason why I

am here by wrong hello Behrend nice to see you as well welcome everyone

who Roco also tomorrow thank you tomorrow I thought you are

going to be in your nice garden but the weather seems to be not so good in

Moscow we have a rainy day so it's raining at the moment in Moscow it is

cloudy gloomy fortunately there is no rain today but

it's not a very nice day I might be outside in the weekend so maybe next

Sunday once more I will be outside because it looks as if the weather here

in England is going to improve over the next few days we might be getting some

sunshine on maybe Thursday and Friday so I'm not sure sometimes you have to play

it by ear you have to play by ear so you don't always know what is going to

happen so quite often you have to be prepared for any eventuality anything

that might occur so I'm going to play it by ear I'm not going to make too many

decisions until I know what the weather is going to be like sometimes you have

to do that in life sometimes you don't know what is going to happen next you

have to take it one step at a time you play it by ear nice expression don't

forget you can also have live captions a lot of people forget you can actually

have live captions right now so as I'm talking to you here on YouTube mr.

Steve's Underpants smell like lavender you see and then suddenly that appears

on the screen all you have to do is press C on your keyboard you don't have

to enter it on the live chat just press the button C on your keyboard and as if

by magic you will get live captions I love that I think of all of the features

and there are many features on YouTube some great things some good tools that

you can use on YouTube but one of the best ones I think is live captions and

of course recorded captions as well I think they are brilliant I really do

hello Beatriz Cory hello also mr. Agarwal hello mr. Agarwal I listened

to your podcasts daily whilst doing my house chores a lot of people do that

it is interesting so not everyone watches my live stream quite often

people will put the live stream on but they will listen to it so maybe they are

in another room or maybe they are doing something at their desk so whilst they

are working they will also listen to my live stream so thank you very much

whatever you are doing at the moment however you are doing it I hope it goes

well but it is nice to know that you are listening as well as watching nice it is

a little bit like a podcast I suppose you might describe this as a video but

also a podcast as well because I'm talking to you live but also I'm I'm

there on the screen you can see me this is it unfortunately this is as good as

it gets it doesn't get any better than this I'm afraid this is how I look of

course I've had no plastic surgery some people think I have they say mr. Duncan

have you been under the knife have you had any plastic surgery on your face do

you use any special cosmetics on your skin and my answer is no all I use is

soap and water that's it so every day I wash my face I give it a

good wash with a little bit of soap and that's all I do sometimes I think if you

put too many things on your skin I think sometimes you can make it worse you can

actually do more damage I think that is just my opinion I think if you put too

many things on your skin all the time I think you can actually make your skin

dry or maybe you can make it look a little old as well so all I do every day

is wash my face with some hot water of course I shave as well I shave

my face but I wash my face with water and a little bit of soap and that's all

I do so nothing else no cosmetic surgery not yet anyway I might have I might have

some some surgery here around my eyes to pull my eyes back a little bit so they

look a little fresher maybe but that's all that's all nothing else I'm happy

with the rest of my body well almost happy with the rest of my

body there are one or two things I would like to change but enough of that

enough of that hello - mirela hello Cory I have been very busy

preparing our barbeque evening in the garden this evening for National Day we

we usually organize it with the family and friends and each of us do it in turn

so each person has their own moment to do something you do something in turn I

do it then you do it and then that other

person does it we do things in turn one by one so I suppose the current

situation in the world is affecting you as much as it is here however I suppose

I should mention that I don't know why by the way please don't ask me why but

the government here in England have said that people will have to start wearing

face masks in the shops and everywhere they go from the 25th of July I don't

know why can someone please explain why why why do we have to suddenly start

wearing masks everywhere we go when for the past four months we haven't

really been wearing masks at all here in England

now I know in Scotland they do require everyone to wear masks especially if

they are going into a shop or an enclosed space so it's very interesting

from the 25th of July they are going to make us wear masks in shops and also

confined places which reminds me a little bit of the Second World War when

everyone was told that they have to wear a face mask and back then

can you see wear a mask or go to jail that's what they did they actually told

people they had to wear a mask now I have a feeling this might not be during

the Second World War I have a feeling this is actually during the 1920s when

London was one of the most polluted places on the planet so I might be wrong

there for which I apologise so for a moment I thought that was from World War

two but I actually think that is from a period of time when there was lots of

smog smog s/m oh gee smog which is a combination of smoke and fog and the air

was so poisonous it actually killed people can you believe it so the air

people were breathing in was so poisonous it was actually causing people

to become very ill and died so what they did they they told people they had to

wear masks I know I said the Second World War but what I actually meant to

say was the 1920s when everything was polluted there was so much smog there

are actual I think it's film old a hot old film with people trying to walk

around in the smog and you can't see anything so London was

with smog a combination of smoke and fog and the situation was so serious they

actually forced people to wear a mask and the reason why I'm mentioning that

is because our government here is doing the same thing so for the 25th of July

you have to wear a face mask or else they will punish you so if you go into a

shop and if you are seen by the police not wearing a face mask they can

actually fine you a hundred pounds Wow incredible but some people are

complaining they say it's a little bit too late it's a little bit too late to

start telling people to wear their face masks surely and some people of course

are complaining about their human rights they are saying that they they they

should have the freedom not to wear their masks I don't know it's a very

tricky situation very tricky but I am surprised that no one has told us that

we have to wear masks sooner maybe a month ago or two months ago not now it's

a little bit too late I think hello to Beatriz happy Independence Day to all

the French classmates isn't that lovely Luis Mendez of course are you

celebrating Luis hello also - Oh Miko hello Miko nice to

see you here as well hi mr. Duncan I think the picture you

have shown is related to the Spanish flu Thank You Alberto maybe you are right

because that was also I think that was also in the 1920s am i right it was

before I was born of course many years before I was born

so yes it might also be connected with the Spanish flu some people say that

it's unfair to actually name a virus after the country where it originated I

suppose that's the reason why certain people are referring to CV 19 as the

China bug I think we know who we're talking about there but is it unfair

should we not say that Ebola virus as I understand it the Ebola virus is named

after the place where it originates yes hello Belarus er I hate it when people

need when people smoke in the street and then they wear their masks covering

their neck and not their mouths yes I think you are right Belarus here by the

way hello welcome I've seen some photographs of people and this is true

I'm not joking this is not a joke I'm not making a joke here there are

some people who have actually put their face mask on but then they've cut holes

where their nose and mouth are I'm not joking I wish I was joking about that

but I've seen some photographs maybe they are real maybe they are fake I'm

not sure but some people are actually wearing face masks and to make them

easier to wear they've actually cut holes where the nose and their mouth is

sometimes I wonder sometimes I think maybe humanity is doomed sometimes not

always by the way I'm going to sneeze excuse me

I knew I was going to sneeze I could feel it coming on yes my hay fever is

still here I'm still suffering from hay fever it's not fair

by the way did you see my livestream yesterday I did a special livestream

behind the scenes you had a chance yesterday to see the studio as it

actually looks in fact last week I took a photograph of the studio just to give

you an idea of what it looks like would you like to have a look at that

photograph again so there it is so there is my studio that is what it looks like

and you can see if you look very closely on the floor you can see a yellow line

and that is where I'm standing right now so there is lots of equipment lots of

things in my studio that allow you to see me and also many things that allow

me to chat with you so much going on around me you would not believe how much

chaos is going on around me at the moment as I stand here there are lights

flashing there are computers making noises there is my stomach that is

rumbling I I have a complaining stomach today because I haven't had any

breakfast I haven't eaten today I can't believe it

I've had nothing to eat Darla says yesterday's live stream was fantastic I

hope you enjoyed it something different sometimes I like to show you things that

are unusual or maybe something you don't see very often so yesterday we had a

chance to have a tour of the studio hello Kate Gann hello Kate I feel as if

I haven't seen you for a long time welcome back Kate nice to see you here

on the live chat and that lovely marietta i think

irrational animals and beings are much too logical and reasonable or more

reasonable and logical than human beings I know sometimes I see people doing very

silly things or maybe sometimes they forget that there is such a thing as

logic logic the way we work out what is right and wrong also the way in which we

work out what is logical and illogical things that are sensible or foolish so

during this period of time where many people have been told to stay at home or

to protect themselves some people have ignored it completely

they have ignored it hello oh I think it's Pedro here yeah he's the man with

the flowing he's here to share his thoughts and feelings it's hi Pedro I

hope you're OK by the way mr. Steve mr. Steve is very

enamored by your hair that's all I'm saying I'm saying nothing else but if

you want to pursue it further you you can you can I think Steve you know he's

he's still young what am I saying hello to art mr. Duncan one question about

face masks or masks in England made of fabric that is a very good question

because we have been advised to use anything to cover our faces so yes you

can wear the proper facemask surgical masks are the

ones you should wear however here in the UK we've been told and especially here

in England we've been told that you can use anything maybe a scarf or maybe just

a piece of cloth which i think is not a good idea but who am I to argue with the

government Who am I I'm nobody I'm nothing I'm just an insect

hello mr. Dan Cohen I've asked you before what is the best novel for you

because I have read Jane Eyre and weathering Heights novels

I don't normally read novels I'm going to be honest with you when I was at

school a long time ago we had to read books all the time

novels stories we did a little bit of Dickens we also covered some other

lesser-known authors and also some some stories that we were very familiar with

here in the UK so some authors who were not very well known however their books

were published here in the UK I do like reading about other people's lives and

also the the way in which human beings behave and the way they treat each other

the way we think so I'm very interested in books that discuss the human

condition the way in which people behave towards each other a very interesting

book many years ago a book by Professor Steven not Stephen Hawking that's a

different person altogether Richard Dawkins is who I'm trying to say

Professor Richard Dawkins produced a very good book called The Selfish Gene

and also he made a TV show about it as well so I'm a big fan of people who

discuss the way in which human beings behave the way we see the world the

things we believe in and that includes different types of

faith belief attitude maybe even our own selfishness so some people believe that

human beings by nature are selfish and I think that is true to a degree when you

watch the animals in the wildlife or in the wild you will see that quite often

they behave in a selfish way so perhaps human beings have the same thing maybe

in our genetic makeup the things that make us the way we are

so maybe selfishness is a part of survival and that's the sort of thing I

like reading about there is a book also I want to buy I'm going to buy it soon

there's a very interesting book again talking about society and it is called

the madness of crowds the way these days many people are grouping together to

form their own I don't know movements and yes it's by an author called Douglas

Murray Douglas Murray so so that's a book I'm going to read soon I'm going to

actually buy that one and read it it's called the madness of crowds something

that we are all having to deal with at the moment I think hello Mario with

using the mask to discover another fascinating way to see and communicate

with people with the eyes yes I suppose so it is strange now I'm not saying that

wearing a mask is a good thing or a bad thing

but it is interesting when you can only see a person's eyes because the eyes are

actually quite expressive you can actually tell a lot about what a person

is thinking by looking at their eyes so I think you're right yes if you cover

your face and only your eyes are visible then that becomes the focal point

that becomes the point where you are looking at very closely a person's eyes

what are they doing what are they doing sometimes when a person lies they might

blink more so there is there is a thought that if you lie you might find

that a person blinks very fast or maybe their eyes will move from side to side

so there are a lot of things you can you can get a lot of things from looking at

a person's eyes so yes I think that's quite interesting very interesting

indeed tomorrow says I like to read about great people their lives I'm

always intrigued how a person starts off as an average person and then they

become successful or famous or wealthy so that transition sometimes can be a

very fascinating thing and of course you can learn a lot from other people's

lives so that is one of the reasons why I like reading about other people's

lives sometimes bad people as well I'm very interested in reading books history

books about not just good people from history but also bad people from history

so it's just as interesting to find out how a child becomes an evil person it's

it's as fascinating to me as a person who becomes wealthy or a successful

businessman or woman so yes all of those things are intriguing because they all

relate to human behavior which is something I am very interested in

Marietta says I agree with you about selfishness

it is good to a certain extent children are really egotistical Oh parents must

teach them to become less egocentric so yes

children and I think that's a very good point I think children are very selfish

but I think that's because they need to survive I think it is a part of your

genetic engineering that says you must survive you must breathe you must drink

water you must eat food whatever it takes

those are the things that you really need to survive and I think that's

probably probably the reason why children are very selfish because it is

that need to survive however now we live in what many people call a materialistic

world so children now have replaced those needs with the latest smartphone

or the latest computer game or the latest toy perhaps perhaps it's all

related to that hello Pedro have you heard about the Amazon River the jungle

and I was born there yes well I know you live near the Amazon or in the area

called Amazon so yes I know about it there was actually a program on last

night talking about the way in which that area over the years has changed

some good things and some bad things

hello - oh hello sunshine mr. Duncan can you please read my comment hello

sunshine I will try to find your comment so I can read it the only problem is oh

there it is mr. Duncan today I realize you're the best English teacher on

YouTube because your learner's don't have to become members or pay to learn

English thank you for giving us the opportunity to make a donation that's

very kind of you yes 14 years I've been here on YouTube and tomorrow I will be

celebrating my four years of doing live streams so I hope I hope

your message was was read out and understood thank you sunshine today we

are going to look at a few things we are going to play the sentence game a little

bit later on so make sure you have your brains switched on to full power you

will need your brains on full power today we are going to take a break we're

going to have a look at one of my full English lessons this is full English

number 12 and then we will be back once more as live as live can be don't go

away

well a big happy hello to you my name is mr. Duncan and I'm so pleased to see you

here again for another full English lesson this is full English number 12

which means that I have now made a dozen episodes of full English a dozen of

something is 12 half a dozen of something is six and two dozen of

something is twenty-four do you know how many things make up a

gross twelve dozen things is a gross which is 144 the word gross can also

mean horrible all disgusting the way he picks his nose is so gross what's that

Oh apparently we are now behind schedule so I'd better get on with today's full

English lesson right now

do you believe in fate do you see your life is being won controlled by fate

the word fate means the course of a person's life or the events of someone's

life that are out of their control fate means that what will happen will happen

and there is nothing that can be done to stop it imagine your life being like a

road all the things you will encounter and experience are already there waiting

for you to meet them a predetermined outcome is fate some people believe that

their life is already mapped out that their fate is already sealed of course

there are those who believe the opposite and feel that life is something we

determine for ourselves that each person has ultimate control of their own

destiny sometimes an event or situation occurs that might appear fateful an

inevitable event might seem fateful in English there is the phrase fate worse

than death which means something that is really bad

or something bad that is about to happen or has happened already do you believe

in fate

here is something that can come in very handy if you are out in the wilderness

this is a piece of tree it's a stick a small piece of branch from a tree can be

called a stick a length of branch that is not very heavy or thick can be called

the stick you can use a stick to support yourself as you walk a large amount of

sticks can be used to make a shelter or a raft to float on water you can use a

stick as a weapon to defend yourself with and a stick makes a very good back

scratcher oh yes a stick is a very useful thing

indeed the word stick can also mean to fix two things together normally with

glue you stick two things together as an idiom stick together means stay with

each other whatever happens you and I will always

stick together

it's time now to take a look at another buzzword a buzzword is a phrase or

sentence that is used a lot during a certain period or is generally popular

today's buzzword is corrupt this is a word that seems to come around again and

again the word corrupt means the action of being dishonest in return for money

or personal gain a person with high authority might be found to be corrupt

if he or she is giving preferential treatment to someone in return for money

or favors you scratch my back and I will scratch yours if you give something to

me then I will do something for you more often than not corruption does involve

bribery taking place between powerful people bribery is the action of

exchanging money for personal favors or gain corruption is the noun that names

the act of being corrupt we will always describe a person involved in corruption

as being corrupt a corrupt politician the official has been charged with

corruption that person has accepted money or gifts in return for giving

favors to someone that person is corruptible easily bored dissolute

self-indulgent and morally depraved

hmm there it was an excerpt from one of my full English lessons that was taken

from full English number 12 I hope you enjoyed that yes it is live English ten

minutes away from three o'clock on a Tuesday afternoon

and I hope you are having a good Tuesday as well wherever you are watching in the

world I hope you are okay I have really got everyone talking today about lots of

different subjects including fate is your life planned already now I don't

believe in that particular thing I think sometimes you have to make your own life

you have to do things you have to sometimes take opportunities where they

are if there is an opportunity that comes your way sometimes you have to

grab a hold of it with both hands and don't let go

so fate is something I think that you make for yourself the future is not

written as doc said in Back to the Future 3 the future is still unwritten

it is whatever you want it to be so that's really what I believe to be

honest I really do hello also oh hello can I say hello to Nigel hello Nigel I

don't recognise your name so I'm going to say hello to Nigel throne of grace

hello Nigel I haven't seen you here before

is it your first time Nigel can I call you Nigel is it all right I have a

cousin called Nigel it's true he's a filmmaker I'm not joking he is actually

a filmmaker that's what he does hello Sayid mr. Duncan what about your

idea about the teacher's pet do you have any one as a pet oh I see what you mean

Sayid I suppose sometimes in class in a classroom situation where you can

actually see your students there might be one student who is always trying to

get your favor we call them the teacher's pet so yes you can have one

student or to students who are always trying to

get their teachers attention however I think on the live chat it's not so easy

it isn't easy so I don't have any favorite people however there are some

lovely students who come back every time I'm on here and that's the reason why

sometimes I say hello to people Pedro Belarusian mika palmyra and many others

regular regular viewers so yes you can all become my pet in fact I would say

you are all you were all my favourite students because you were here right now

joining me live so that is as honest as I can be about that situation mr. Duncan

the vice-president of the ivory coast who has resigned recently is also called

Duncan I did hear that yes I think his name is it his first name or his second

name because some people have Duncan as their as their family name as their

family name excuse me so yes the name Duncan can sometimes be

your second name or your first name so for me Duncan is my first name it is my

given name my parents called me Duncan would you like I quite like my name to

be honest I think it really suits me I don't know how but I think it does I

think it's suitable for me chérif DJ so we are so we are your pet

well when I say pet I don't mean like a dog or a cat but maybe people who are

your favorite people people who you enjoy being with or or maybe people who

you enjoy being kind to so you offer things

so yes teacher's pet it is something that is used sometimes but I like to

think that this is a big family of English addicts are you crazy about the

English language I am maybe you are as well

so we are all here together sharing our love of English hello to Pakistan ving

Raj hello viewers hello to you and welcome we are going to be playing the

sentence game in a few moments are you excited to be playing the sentence game

I know I am would you like to have a look at some of the cattle now I've been

asked if I can show the cows the cows are still in the back of the house so

here is something I filmed a couple of weeks ago and you will also notice mr.

Steve is in this video as well

oh so lovely I absolutely love the carols they might be my favorite kettle

that we've had in the back of the house over the past few years they are so

lovely

mmm as the sign just said we are live yes we are now live across YouTube thank

you very much for joining me today in his Tuesday I'm not normally here doing

English addict on Tuesday however things are different tomorrow we are going to

watch my first ever live stream that I did on the 15th of July 2016

so tomorrow a little different so I thought today we would do the English

addict right now and that's what we're doing at the moment I hope you are

having a super-duper Tuesday I really do Syed says I think all the students are

equal here and no one has been has felt any discrimination am i right no I

welcome everyone it doesn't matter where you are in the world wherever you are

you are more than welcome to join in all I ask is that we all treat each other

nicely without being unfair or rude does that sound like a good idea I think so

it's coming up to three o'clock we are just a few seconds away from three

o'clock and also we are just approaching the sentence game as well today we are

looking at which letter we are looking at the letter B today so all of the

missing words in the sentence game begin with the letter B are you ready to play

the sentence game we will be doing that in a few moments hi mr. Duncan oh the

lovely cows the cows are still in the back of the house and they are so happy

to see us every time we go into the garden they come over and say hello

isn't that lovely who would have thought that cattle could

be so friendly and warm towards human beings but it's

true hello Jimmy Jimmy agua hello mr. Danko and this is my first

time in your live lesson I subscribed a long time ago thanks a lot for teaching

please say hi this is Jimmy from Columbia I've learned a lot from you

there they are so welcome nice to see you here today

hakalau says I believe that if I can try hard I can do anything yes sometimes you

have to put effort into the thing you want you have to sometimes be patient

you have to wait you can't rush the thing that you are trying to get or

achieve and learning English is very similar to that you can't rush learning

English it takes time patience you can't rush the learning process

very glad to meet you again mr. Duncan oh hello Ram Mohan hello Ram nice to see

you here as well we are about to have some fun at least I hope it will be fun

if it isn't you can complain to me but please write to mr. Steve don't write to

me if you want to complain here we go then

are you ready to play the sentence game I think we are I think we are definitely

ready shall we play it right now

doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo we are playing the

sentence game today it is Tuesday normally we play it on Wednesday but we

are doing it one day earlier because tomorrow is the anniversary of my

livestreams beginning four years ago tomorrow and we are all going to sit and

watch my first ever live stream together so I will be with you on the live chat

tomorrow you won't see me live but you will have me my presence will be known

in the live chat that's very kind I'm receiving some lovely kind messages

today thank you very much very kind of you

we are now going to play what I like to call the sentence game there it is so

bit beneath my my face just below my nose there you will see some sentences

they will appear on the screen as if by magic so that is what we are going to do

we are also using the letter B so that is what we are using they are all

sentences with missing words and each of those words begin with the letter B are

you ready for the first sentence so all of these words begin with B it's as

simple as that all you have to do is tell me what the missing words are can

you tell me what their missing words are that's all you have to do

Cory has to go oh ok Cory see you later then bye Cory bye

Cory's going let's play the sentence game round 1 everyone are you ready

let's go shall we here we are here is the first sentence

now this particular sentence has only one missing word but it might be a word

that you've never seen before or maybe a word that is not easy to

pronounce oh I'm giving you some clues you will also notice underneath I've

given you the number of letters in the word here it is right now there is too

much something in our government departments there is too much something

in our government departments that is today's first sentence game so you can

see the sentence and also there is a missing word which begins with B but

what is it what is it there is too much there is too much something too much

something in our government departments but what is it something that begins

with the letter B but what is it there is too much something but what is it

what on earth is it

thank you thank you Fabian saying or Fabian Sain thank you

very much for your guess it is nothing rude

there is no swearing in this particular word but I understand your feeling some

people do say that there is a lot of bull something yes I know I know

I know what you mean some people do say that but the answer here is not that

word okay it isn't that word it is another word

that begins with B but not a swearing word yes we are getting some very

interesting words here some very interesting guesses Ricardo says bribes

bribes you might be near or then again you might not be also we have Syed says

debatable debatable debatable begins with D and not B but I know what you

mean there is too much building in our government departments too much building

so the word we are looking for begins with the letter B and it is something

that a lot of people complain about especially when you try to do something

concerning the local government or maybe someone who is in an office you want to

do something but unfortunately there are many things that you have to overcome

many things that you have to go through to get what you want

mmm

yes some very interesting guesses my cock is ready it is going to come up and

say cockadoodledoo because time is almost up

time's up

thank you what did you think I meant bull says quien now we have oh we have

some correct answers Oh smarty pants very good very good thank you lil thank

you all so FA tomorrow also no rush it's not an easy word to spell by the

way a lot of people spell this word incorrectly they spell it wrong but the

word I'm looking for is it's coming now are you ready the

missing word is your rock recei bureaucracy like that that is such a

good word one of the reasons why I like this word is well it looks so

interesting it is an interesting word I don't know why when you see certain

words written down they they look interesting and I think bureaucracy is

one of those words it looks very interesting to the eyes as you look at

it also it's very difficult to spell most people spell this word wrong

bureaucracy another word we can use is or a phrase in fact there is a phrase

that describes bureaucracy as red tape red tape so I suppose I would use an

example here in England if you wanted to build a neck

extra house on your land quite often you will have to get planning permission so

you will have to go to all of these local council or local government

departments and then you have to submit or give all of your planning

applications and then someone will try to decide whether you can do it or not

and quite often it takes a long time for for any decision to be made

we call it bureaucracy things that quite often slow down the process of getting

something done so many people do complain about bureaucracy in government

departments so you might see I remember in China actually I'm going to say China

because I've lived there you see so I remember in China there was always

bureaucracy there was always red tape if you wanted to do even a very simple

thing if you wanted to do a very simple thing in China you had to go to many

different government departments to try and do something they actually made it

difficult on purpose to make it hard for for the average person to do anything so

China is well known for its bureaucracy and the reason why I know that is

because I've lived there I actually did live in China so there was our first one

now you get the idea you see you get the idea of how the game works

bureaucracy the way in which things are done maybe certain procedures or certain

rules that you have to abide by or obey

bureaucracy and of course we do have we have it here in the UK we have

bureaucracy in the UK as well we have it here as well

hi Diana Wow we have too much bureaucracy in Italy too much thank you

very much I suppose many countries do have problems with the rules and

regulations but I suppose the point that I'm making about China is that they

would often change the rules sometimes everyday the rules will be different I'm

not joking from my own personal experience I know

that quite often the rules would change sometimes from day today so one day the

rule was one thing and then the next day it was another thing here's another one

are you ready for the next sentence game this one is a little harder so I hope

you will get it we have oh I think we have just maybe one missing word here

haha so once more we have just one missing word or you have to do is tell

me what the word is and all of the words today begin with the letter B don't

forget we are looking at words beginning with the letter B

we've made too many mistakes recently we can't afford another what interesting

we've made too many mistakes recently we can't afford another something beginning

with B so the word begins with B seven letters we are looking for it has seven

letters but what could it be literally what could it be

hernán hello Hernan Hernan Suarez says too much bureaucracy is dangerous yes

and sometimes the rules the government rules are used to to make it more

difficult for people to do things it does happen it does happen a few more

seconds I'm not sure if this is easy or hard to be honest so we have made too

many mistakes recently we can't afford another what is this it's easy or hard

I'm not sure hmm oh okay quite a few people are getting this one

right oh well done yes mr. Cockrell do your thing the word the missing word for

this round is are you ready we've made too many mistakes recently we can't

afford another what blunder Oh interesting a very interesting word

we've made too many mistakes recently we can't afford another blunder it is

another word another word that means mistake you make a mistake you make an

error you get something wrong you do something incorrectly you have made a

blunder blunder it's a great word a lovely word congratulations many people

got that right congratulations to you you got it right

well done yes a blunder maybe a foolish mistake careless mistake a blunder have

you ever made a blunder have you ever made a mistake I think making mistakes

is normal with human beings we often make mistakes we do I think it is a

normal part of existence sometimes we are going to get things we are going to

get things wrong I think so are you ready for another one okay then let's

have another sentence game shall we it it was difficult but I do have my

dictionary at hand well that's a good idea

yes of course I have your dictionary ready it can help you it can help you

let's play the next sentence game shall we

we have another one coming up right now it is coming up on your screen now oh

okay then once more we are only looking for one word one word I'm making it easy

you see maybe later I might make them difficult but this one

for now is just one word we are looking for nine letters the two cars raced at

something speed along the road the two cars raced at something speed along the

road what is the answer to today's third sentence game

the two cars raced at something speed along the road would you say they are

going slowly or quickly would you think from that sentence they are going fast

or slow the two cars raced act something speed something speed the two cars raced

at nine letters speed hmm Mikkel says beautiful the two cars raced at

beautiful speed yes when I was a student many years ago there was a section of my

text book called remarks your sentence game reminds me of that remarks remarks

are normally things that you want to add to something maybe something you've

noticed maybe an observation or something you want to write down to give

yourself a reminder remarks or maybe if you want to make some sort of statement

concerning the thing that you've seen remarks you write something down you

write down your remarks your point of view perhaps can be a remark okay I'm

getting lots of lots of replies I might also be getting some correct answers as

well maybe this is a new word maybe you've seen this word before it is one

word nine letters the two cars erased at something speed along the road

come on come on don't be shy come on mr. Cockrell come and say hello lovely the

answer is the two cars raced at something speed along the road they

raced at breakneck breakneck hmm interesting

so it it is actually a compound word it is formed using two words break break

neck break neck put them together you have break neck so the two cars raced at

breakneck speed along the roads so when something is going at a breakneck speed

it is going fast going fast something is done quickly something is done in haste

maybe something is moving at a fast pace or rate

breakneck breakneck the two cars raced at breakneck speed you are describing

the movement how the cars are moving they are moving very fast breakneck

speed so you are adding meaning to that sentence you might even say that the

cars are driving dangerously maybe they are going too fast breakneck speed a

good one I like that one are you ready for another sentence game because there

is another one coming very soon congratulations

Sasuke also s.o.s is a hello as oh nice to see you here today

congratulations you got it right Vitesse says breakneck breakneck has ten

does it really be our e8k em e c k9 i make it 9 very interesting it's 9 here's

another one are you ready oh we are now involving the police the police the

police hello Maria Maria meaty hello Maria meaty nice to see you here on the

live stream

Stanislav is here as well dangerous and reckless yes

dangerous or reckless you are doing something at breakneck speed you are

doing it recklessly thank you very much that's a good one

another good guess the police were something by how for something job was

done so now we have two words both of these words begin well they both begin

with the letter B they both begin with the letter B the police were something

by how the something was done the police were something by how the something was

done mmm

Thank You Luis for your guests

we have Ruben here hello Ruben nice to see you here also no rush

ha hello no rush put your guesses on the live chat all you have to do is type

your guess and then everyone in the world will see it

hello in main hello my best teacher in main Amane nice to see you as well

hmm we are getting some very interesting answers to this particular sentence game

very interesting yes so we have safe seven letters and four letters seven and

four the police were something by how the something job was done so the first

one you are talking about maybe how the police were reacting their reaction the

police were this is a reaction how the something job was done now in the second

word we are describing a certain action the way a certain thing was done hmm

laughs eh okay very good very good guess

Sayid says beamed beamed

not easy mr. Duncan can he hit my stomach did you hear my stomach then my

stomach was just rumbling complaining did you hear my

stomach then he was saying please mr. Duncan can you please give me some food

Samarra says amazed and good I think you're going to be surprised by this one

this was quite surprising many people are getting the first word right but the

second word no one has got it right the second word

no one has got the second word right and that is because this is a very

interesting use of the word job so this is actually a certain phrase that you

may not have heard before ready here comes the answer go on go on after 3 1 2

3 very nice I have my cockerel trained very well I think so the answer to this

one not easy no I think it's not easy you're right sometimes questions are

difficult and that is the reason why we ask difficult questions because you can

find out quite a lot when you have to answer difficult questions you can find

out quite a lot the answers are blowing in the wind here they come right now ah

ok mr. Duncan the police were baffled

baffled by how the bank job was done the bank job the bank job that is a very

interesting use the word job now if we are talking about

a crime that is being committed or has been committed we not we often refer to

it as a certain type of job maybe if you rob a bank we will call it a bank job

they did a bank job that means they robbed the bank they

carried out a bank robbery so we often use this in British English you will

hear people say that two robbers pulled off or did or carried out a bank job

that means they robbed or stole things from the bank yes the police were

baffled to be baffled means confused you have no idea how it happened

the police were baffled by how the bank job was done so maybe the the people

that broke into the bank perhaps they did something very clever to break into

the bank maybe they did something very clever maybe they were able to break

into the bank without anyone seeing them so the police were baffled by how the

bank job was done how did they break in there was no sign there was no no broken

glass how did they get in to the bank so a bank job is a term that means bank

robbery bank robbery I suppose you might say it is slang it is a slang term a

bank job robbery so I hope that helps you there another interesting sentence

something unusual something very unusual we'll have a quick break if you want to

stay in touch by the way if you want to write to me you were always welcome

to do so don't forget you can write you can send me your emails I do have an

email address I also have a Facebook page as well and if you want to help my

work continue forever and ever you can also send a small donation

oh just drinking some water here my throat was becoming quite dry so I was

just drinking a little bit of water yes it is English addict and we will be

going very soon we have about four more rounds of the sentence game that's what

we are doing today we are playing the sentence game and we are using words

beginning with beginning with the letter B there it is that is what we are doing

today the letter B is the featured letter in today's sentence game

so now you know shall we have another round okay here is another round oh

hello Sergio when you use a dictionary or

better a thesaurus you just tape the general notion in the search line and

then choose among the synonyms it is a very stupid way of passing time Sergio

can I just say that might be one of the most brilliant things you've ever said

on my live stream it is a great way of improving your word power the Souris a

thesaurus is a is a very useful thing to have around you can have a book or maybe

you can have an electronic device that will show you the the other definitions

of words I think so so in fact what you said is not a stupid waste of time it

isn't it's actually a brilliant idea it might be the best thing I've ever heard

you write on here or seen you write on my live chat so it's it's amazing

so it is not a stupid waste of time it's brilliant it's fantastic so thank you

for that suggestion a thesaurus is a great tool that can allow you to find

out other definitions of certain words so yes that that well

done Thank You Sergio that is amazing

Sergio says I I tried my best thank you well your best is definitely good enough

today definitely wonderful what a great idea

why didn't I think of that here we go then another round of the sentence game

hmm here we go it's coming up on your screen

also six letters after hours of something

the management something down after hours of something the management

something down we are looking for seven and six letters two words beginning with

the letter B they both begin with the letter B but what are they that is the

hard part you see two missing words both of them beginning with the letter B but

why I am always sharing the live stream the live streaming's there well I do

have a Facebook page many thousands of people follow on Facebook cemet says I

near the only difference is both words need to be replaced besides that it's

perfect it's it's amazing it's wonderful

Rudo car hello red oka bickering and broken hmm interesting I like your use

of the word bicker if you bicker you argue you fight with

words so instead of punching each other with your fists you are actually using

times eventually they will say okay we give up we will back down you can have

begging the management backed down they backed down thank you either mr. Duncan

something side down

they say that something always Falls something side down hmm wonder Thank You

Sergio for your very colorful response to the previous sentence game very

interesting yes very interesting

tomorrow we must celebrate it is the 4th anniversary tomorrow of my first ever

live stream tomorrow the 15th of July 2016 I did my first ever live stream was

it as good as this one maybe maybe not I don't know it's up to you only you can

describe that hello nourish so we've got some answers

coming through now some answers are now coming through I wonder I wonder some

answers are now coming through I think there's someone at the door I'm sure I

just heard the door someone was knocking it at all I think interesting

Slobodan thank you for your answer as well a lot of people now getting

involved with this sentence game they say that

something always Falls something side down five letters and six letters hmm

okay Oh Oh mr. Duncan oh we've got it right yeah I see okay nice Palmira says

I am scratching my head but I have no idea

gene or Jean Felix says is that an Adidas hat it is it is an Adidas hat you

see it says added' ass on the front you are right books and back says Zoe we

have quite a few answers coming through now in fact we have many answers some of

them are correct and some of them are not correct I say the Ayanna says B is

not a good letter to me I wonder why why is be a bad letter for you I wonder I

wonder there are many words that begin with B there are quite a few negative

words I have noticed certain letters of the alphabet

have many negative words they start many negative words B their letter B there

are many words that begin with B that are negative board blank beat

please mr. Duncan give us a hint they say that certain thing so we are

looking for a certain thing Falls in a certain way so we are describing

something when it is falling it falls in a certain way all the time all the time

thank you copy thank you also to English with ash car

thank you very much lots of guesses today ok mr. Cockrell

we're running out of time quickly

quickly mr. Cockrell we are running out of time we only have 7 minutes left and

then I have to go they say that something always Falls something side

down but what is the answer the answer to the question is blowing in the wind

the answer is blowin the answer is bread butter bread butter

they say that bread always Falls butter side down so if you take a piece of

bread and you put some butter on the bread and then if you drop it it will

always fall but aside down well that's what I've noticed anyway whenever I drop

a piece of bread on the floor it always lands butter side down I think so Luis

Mendez says balls balls yes that also begins with B that is a word that can be

used in many different ways I think so so Zika has to go see you later at Zika

are you going to join us tomorrow tomorrow I have my special long

livestream but I will be playing a recording of my first ever live stream

way back in 2016 the big question is was it good was it a good one or was it

awful can you guess what the answer to that question is talking of questions we

have one more sentence game and then we will go so here is the final sentence

game and can I just say this one is very difficult this one is very hard today's

final sentence game actually maybe it isn't hard maybe that actually maybe

it's not that difficult after all I'm just looking at it now it might not be

hard we are looking forward to letters or to words beginning with the letter B

seven letters and twelve letters seven and twelve both of those begin with the

letter B you can't something everything the news

something tell you twelve letters that's a big word that is a very long word I

think so you can't something everything the news

something tells you seven and twelve

okay we already have some guesses coming through we have to make this very short

because we are running out of time I only have four minutes just four minutes

left four minutes that's all we have left

unfortunately hmm we are looking for seven and twelve

you can't something everything the news something tell you the second word is

actually plural so I'm giving you a clue there so the second is a plural plural

the first one relates to something you are doubtful off if you have doubt about

something or maybe if you do accept a certain thing so this particular word

can be used in different ways depending on the situation yes no rush

oh hello nourish some very interesting suggestions coming through here oh I

have a couple I have a couple of correct answers coming through oh well done yes

just a few more seconds you can't something everything the news

something tell you mm-hmm quite a few people now writing it down

quite a few people are writing the answers some of them are correct and

some of them are not correct come on mr. Cockrell we only have three minutes we

are now racing against the clock the clock is ticking here it is the answer

to the final the final sentence game today is

oh okay Oh mr. Duncan what is this is this your personal opinion no this is

not my personal opinion this is merely part of the sentence game so can I just

say that the sentence underneath does not represent the thoughts or ideas of

anyone working here they'd had foreign productions so this is not my own

personal opinion this is just a sentence believe and Broadcasters plural you

can't believe everything the news broadcasters tell you the news

broadcasters believe except you accept something that is said or maybe you

don't accept you do believe you don't believe you can't believe everything the

news broadcasters tell you if you broadcast it means you are doing

something you are giving out information that many people can receive at the same

time you broadcast very nice plural so broadcasters you are talking about more

than one so one broadcaster many broadcasters so as the plural more than

one a group you can't believe everything the news broadcasters tell you that is

the final a final sentence game for today because now it is coming up to
