  • Hello and welcome back to English with Lucy.

  • Today I want to talk to you about proverbs.

  • But do you know what proverbs are?

  • Proverbs are usually short, clever little sentences

  • that natives will use in conversation without even realizing it

  • they often offer good arguably arguably good life advice.

  • Today I'm going to talk

  • to you about five proverbs and their

  • meaning and what we would use them.

  • The first proverb that I'd like to talk to you about is

  • the grass is always greener

  • this means that you shouldn't be jealous

  • of what other people may have or may

  • appear to have because they could also

  • be looking at what you have and feeling

  • jealous as well so quite literally this

  • is probably talking about a neighbor

  • looking at his neighbor's garden and

  • thinking his grass is greener than my

  • grass but it could just be his point of view

  • his neighbor may be looking in his

  • garden and thinking oh god his grass is greener than mine

  • so basically means don't be jealous because it might not be what it seems.

  • The next proverb is

  • don't judge a book by it's cover

  • this is another proverb that teaches us that things are not always as they seem.

  • The proverb tells us to not judge someone

  • by their appearance or the way they

  • dress or just generally how they look or act.

  • A really old dirty book could have

  • an amazing story to tell inside.

  • Or a really beautiful book could be really

  • boring inside and so this proverb is

  • talking about books but relating it to people.

  • somebody might have a mohawk and

  • lots of scary makeup and spikes all over

  • them but they might also have a kitten

  • fan page or Instagram you never know

  • so don't judge a book by it's cover.

  • The next proverb is when in Rome do as the Romans do

  • and this means that when you are visiting somewhere

  • you should try and act as a local person is considered

  • respectful and polite i love this one it

  • means that when you travel you need to

  • adapt to the culture whether that's

  • covering your skin or adapting to their

  • meal times I think it's really important to respect and adapt to culture

  • a lot of people could learn from that one actually

  • The next proverb is

  • practice makes perfect and this one sort of speaks for itself

  • you're not going to pick up a violin and

  • play like velde you need to practice the

  • more you practice the closer you are to achieving perfection

  • and the same goes for your English practice makes perfect

  • the last proverb is actually my personal

  • favorite and it's about determination

  • it is where there's a will there's a way

  • it means that if you want to do

  • something enough then you will find a way of doing it

  • nothing is impossible there is always a way

  • I used to say this one to myself a

  • lot because when i started the English with Lucy youtube channel

  • I had no idea how to work a camera a funny story is

  • that my dad let me a small amount of

  • money to buy a camera and a tripod

  • so I bought them both secondhand and when they

  • arrived they didn't work so I found out

  • the company and I said look you've sent

  • me the camera you've sent me the tripod

  • but it's not filming anything and they

  • told me that I haven't bought a lens

  • but I went from not knowing anything about cameras photography video production anything

  • to being able to make videos three times a week and every time I come

  • across a problem whether it be with

  • filming lighting editing noise

  • a lot of obstacles in my way

  • I always say to myself where there's will, there's a way

  • if you want to do this Lucy you will find a way of doing it

  • so I hope that motivated to a little bit right guys that's it for today's lesson

  • don't forget to connect with me all of my social media

  • and remember that I have my free live pronunciation lesson every sunday at four thirty

  • and I will see you soon for another lesson
