  • account at English class 101.com hi everybody and welcome back to top

  • words my name is Alisha and today we're going to talk about 10 American

  • government words let's go the first word for today is Congress so Congress is a

  • part of the United States federal government Congress has a lower house

  • and an upper house in a sentence the US Congress is made up of the House of

  • Representatives and the Senate so in this case we're going to talk about

  • these words later but Congress is composed of the Senate and the House of

  • Representatives so the next word is president so the president is a very

  • very famous figure worldwide the president is part of the three branches

  • of the American government system the president is head of the executive

  • branch of government in a sentence the US president lives in the White House

  • the American government has a what we call a checks and balances system so

  • having three branches of government the idea is that if any one branch of the

  • government makes a an interesting decision or a bad decision or there's

  • something that's a problem in any one of the three branches of government the

  • other branches will fix the error so the president is the head of the executive

  • branch the next expression is the House of Representatives so the House of

  • Representatives as I mentioned before is part of Congress Congress is made of the

  • House of Representatives and the Senate in a sentence the House of

  • Representatives passes bills which are next sent to the Senate there are

  • members from each American state in the House of Representatives the people who

  • are members of the House of Representatives are chosen based on the

  • population where they come from the next expression is Senate so as I mentioned

  • before the Senate is part of the US Congress Senate and the House of

  • Representatives are these two components these two houses in the US Congress in a

  • sentence the u.s. vice-president is president of the Senate the Senate

  • is different there are two people from each state two members of the Senate for

  • each state that means each state has an equal number of Representatives in the

  • Senate all right so this next word is bill bill I mentioned this earlier in an

  • example sentence a bill is a piece of legislation so legislation means like a

  • a policy or a law or a set of rules relating to the government a bill

  • however is different from a law because a bill is not yet a law in a sentence

  • new bills are introduced to Congress every year so a bill is something that

  • needs to be discussed and considered among members of Congress among

  • government officials and so on okay the next word is Senator Senator in the

  • Senate there is a specific word for people who are members of the Senate so

  • in a sentence there are two senators from each u.s. state every state has two

  • senators so those are two members from each state who are members of the Senate

  • the next word is representative representative so just like the Senate

  • and Senators in the House of Representatives we say representative

  • for the members of the House of Representatives so in this example

  • sentence state representatives are determined by population or rather the

  • number of state representatives are determined by population so senator and

  • representative are words we use to talk about members of the Senate and the

  • House of Representatives the next word is to elect to elect so to elect someone

  • to elect a government official means to choose a government official for a

  • government position so to elect a president to elect a may be a vice

  • president in a sentence representatives are elected based on votes you can use

  • elect in your community too depending on your your country or your

  • system you might elect government officials or you might even elect people

  • to things in your school for example like you might elect a treasurer for

  • your school so to elect means to choose someone to lead

  • you in some way so to elect a leader all right the next word is an interesting

  • word it's to impeach to impeach there are a few different definitions for

  • impeach but when talking about the American government to impeach we can

  • say it means to remove someone from office to cancel their government

  • official status so in a sentence there's talk on the news of impeaching a

  • government official usually when we impeach someone or

  • attempt to impeach someone it's because they are accused of bad behavior

  • misconduct bad conduct bad behavior and then as a result they are removed from

  • government office so we use the verb to impeach so the next word is to vote to

  • vote so depending on the country depending on the system the government

  • system in your country maybe you can or cannot vote I don't know

  • but to vote means to make a choice the person you would like to elect to a

  • government position so maybe you can vote for a president or a prime minister

  • so in a sentence it's important to vote to vote means to choose personally to

  • vote for blah blah blah I want to vote for president I want to vote for a

  • representative in my community it means to choose and then to give your

  • selection like to to participate in an election you're making the choice to

  • vote okay so that's the end so those are ten American government words I hope

  • that those are helpful for talking about the American government and for maybe
