  • Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking. And welcome to this lesson on "Talking About

  • Your Nose". So, we all have noses, and how do you talk about them in English? That's

  • basically what this lesson is about.

  • So, here, we'll start with the basic anatomy of the nose. So, here's a picture of a nose.

  • And you see these arrows point at the two holes. So, the holes in your nose are called

  • your "nostrils". Okay? So, let's do some pronunciation too. Repeat after me: nostrils.

  • Okay. Good job.

  • And this middle part is called "the bridge of your nose". So, if anyone ever breaks your

  • nose, they can crack your bridge or break the bridge of your nose. And this area around

  • your nose, when you're very sick and you feel like "uhhh", these are called your sinuses.

  • Okay? So, repeat after me: sinuses. All right. Excellent.

  • And let's look at this picture. Now, again, many of us, after a while, you have hair that

  • grows in your nose, and these are called "nose hairs". Very simple. Right? Nose hairs. And

  • if you want to remove your nose hairs, there are a couple of things you can do. The first

  • thing you can do is if you just take, you know, your finger and just grab one, and pull

  • it out. This is called "plucking" or "pulling out" your nose hairs. So it's possible to

  • pluck your nose hairs with your finger or with a nose hair plucker, I guess. And it's

  • also possible to "trim" your nose hairs. So, you can go to a barber and trim your hair,

  • cut your hair, but just a little bit. You can also trim, give your nose hairs a little

  • cut if you have long nose hairs. For some of us, it's not an issue; for some of us,

  • it is an issue. So, you can either pluck, pull out, or trim your nose hairs. Okay?

  • Now, let's look at some vocabulary when we're sick. So, if I say: "Oh, I'm sick. My nose

  • is runny." So, if your nose is runny, think of run, like the liquid is running out of

  • your nose. So, this is runny, like it's very liquidy inside your nose.

  • You can also say: "My nose is stuffy." It's stuffy. So, this is the kind of feeling of

  • stuffy. You can also say: "Stuffed up", like it's full. And "blocked" and "clogged", these

  • are very similar to "stuffy" as well. So, these three: "stuffy", "blocked", "clogged".

  • You can also say: "Blocked up" or: "Clogged up". "My nose is all blocked up. It's all

  • clogged up." Or: "It's stuffy." Or: "It's stuffed up." It just means it's full, it's

  • blocked, and you need to somehow get rid of what's inside your nose.

  • So, let's look at things that can be inside your nose. So, if your nose is stuffy, or

  • if your nose is blocked up, or it's clogged, there could be a couple of different reasons

  • why. So, you will probably not use this sentence, but just to learn the vocabulary, let's look

  • at this sentence. "My nose is full of boogers." Now, "boogers", they are the dry things inside

  • your nose. So, if your nose is full of boogers, some of us might pick our noses. So your mom,

  • or your dad, or someone in your family might tell you: "Don't pick your nose!" So put your

  • finger in your nose and take out the boogers. Okay? Am I grossing you out? Is it disgusting?

  • A little bit. Right?

  • And the other thing that can be inside your nose when you're sick and you need to, you

  • know, get rid of this thing, is called "snot". So, snot is like the liquid form, the green

  • liquid, clear liquid, depends I guess what you have in your nose, but the liquid part.

  • And when you... When your nose is full of snot, you need to blow your nose. So, to blow

  • your nose, you might need one of these. Okay? So this is called "a tissue". "Do you have

  • a tissue? I need to blow my nose." Okay? Now, again, instead of tissue, a lot of English

  • speakers just say: "Kleenex". "Do you have a Kleenex? I need a Kleenex." And Kleenex

  • is actually a brand name, but we use it as a common noun just to mean tissue. Okay?

  • So, just to do a quick review, the holes in your nose are called your nostrils. This is

  • your bridge, your sinuses. And if you have nose hairs, you can pluck out your nose hairs,

  • pull out your nose hairs, or trim your nose hairs. You can say: "My nose is runny.",

  • "My nose is stuffy, blocked, clogged. It's clogged up, stuffed up." And a number of things, one

  • of these three. And: "My nose is full of boogers", the dry stuff that you can pick. So: "Don't

  • pick your nose!" Or it's full of snot, and you need to blow your nose if it's full of snot.

  • Okay, if you've made it this far and you're not disgusted, you can do the quiz on

  • And don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel. Bye.
