  • Hey you -

  • How long did you know each other before this movie got underway? Yeah. Yes. We did. Where did you meet?

  • And how long have you known each other? I want to hear the whole story

  • Would you text each other did you hang out you? Did you don't remember how we met I do. I thought you had me

  • At dinner

  • No, yes, we did. Clearly. I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care

  • We are dinner on New Year's Eve. We work together. Oh

  • My god, oh my god

  • Because I just felt like I was basically a glorified extra and you were Scarlett Johansson

  • So I was like, wow, what movie noticed your brain I know

  • You're not a glorified actor. We don't yeah, we did this movie called Don John that was directed by Joseph gordon-levitt, and we did

  • Hey you two

  • How long did you know each other before this movie got underway, if something as an event or process is underway

  • That means it is in progress

  • It is currently happening

  • Ellen is referring to the Avengers and game movie and asking if Scarlett and Bree had met before production was underway

  • Example the preparations for the party are already underway. Yeah. Yes. We did. Where did you meet?

  • And how long have you known each other? I want to hear the whole story

  • Did you text each other did you hang out to text is to send a text message you your phone?

  • Okay, so I met this girl on the train and I texted her what's up. She texted. Hey

  • Exclamation point to hang out with somebody is a very common phrasal verb meaning to spend some time with somebody in a particular place

  • without doing anything specific other than talking I

  • Miss hanging out with you

  • We still hang out not like we used to remember you and me used to be inseparable

  • To hang out can also be used to vaguely describe that you're spending time doing something

  • For example, I'm just gonna hang out at home and read

  • Anyway, you don't feel like being alone tonight Joey and Chandler are coming over to help me put together mine my new furniture

  • yes, and we're very excited about I

  • Think I'm just gonna hang out here tonight. It's been a long while sure okay

  • Hey, I hope you're enjoying the lesson so far

  • So every single week we help learners like you understand fast speaking natives with an alkene lost without me some the jokes and without subtitles

  • Saravana said that since they joined their fluency and pronunciation

  • Have improved. So if you want to be able to do that, too

  • Then I highly recommend you hit that subscribe button and the bell down below to not miss a single one of our new lessons

  • Where did you meet and how long have you known each other?

  • I want to hear the whole story from this simple common phrase you can learn quite a lot

  • First we see two words that English learners use incorrectly all the time

  • Meet and know to meet someone means that you are knowing them for the first time

  • You have never talked to them before if you want to refer to the first time you were introduced to your girlfriend

  • It would be incorrect to say for example, I knew my girlfriend at a party rather

  • You should say I met my girlfriend at a party if you know someone it means that you have already met them at some point

  • In the past to continue with the same example. I have know my girlfriend for five years

  • Furthermore we can use the expression get to know to refer to that you begin to know someone on a more intimate level

  • For example, I really got to know my girlfriend when we travelled across Europe together

  • We had so much time to talk and learn about each other

  • Scarlet and Brie might say that they met a long time ago or that they have known each other for a long time

  • But that they only got to know each other while working on Avengers endgame

  • Where did you meet and how long have we known each other?

  • I want to hear the whole story now if we look at the grammar of what Allen said we can clear up

  • Another common doubt with the difference between the simple past and the present perfect

  • In brief we use the simple past tense to talk about a finished action in the past

  • We use the present perfect tense to talk about something that happened in the past, but it's still true now

  • So although there are few exceptions

  • It would be incorrect to say meet in the present. Perfect

  • Because it is something that happens one time in the past

  • You do not continue meeting someone and in the same way

  • it would be incorrect to use no in the simple past because you do not stop knowing someone this is why Ellen says

  • Where did you meet?

  • And how long have you known each other

  • If you can remember just this one sentence it will help you avoid these extremely common mistakes

  • Can you think of other examples with a simple past and present perfect?

  • Practice your English by writing them in the comments below and seeing what your fellow learners have said. You don't remember how we met

  • I do

  • At dinner

  • No, yes, we did clearly. I it made an impression on me

  • But somebody else didn't care if somebody or something makes an impression on you. They have caused a strong

  • memorable effect on you, which you will later remember positively about

  • But happy Halloween you crazies

  • My class loves me I am really making an impression on those guys if you make a bad impression then someone would remember you negatively

  • scarlet is saying the meeting with Bri for the first time always a very nice experience and one that she certainly

  • Remembers, she sarcastically adds as somebody else that is Bri didn't care about it since she can't remember anything about it

  • Hey, would you like to be able to understand fast speaking natives like scarlet and Bri without getting lost well?

  • Just click up at the top or down in the description to learn more and sign up. Yes

  • Clearly I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care by the way

  • did you notice how she connects the words and and

  • Impression it made an impression on me. It made an impression on me

  • This is exactly how NATO's pronounce words starting with a vowel sound when they come after the article and check out these other examples

  • We owe Lily an apology. Yeah

  • I'm a little more than just a pretty blonde girl with an ass. That won't quit. I can't believe this this is incredible

  • I mean you just wanted a Husker

  • in fact

  • this rule of

  • Connected speech can be applied to most cases of a word

  • Finishing with an end sound that is followed by another word starting with a vowel sound for example

  • I

  • can imagine

  • I'm sorry, all the first-class seats are taken that couple got the last two you see if we've gone around them

  • Like I said, then she would've given us those tickets. Damn it

  • When is it

  • Now, let's try and repeat after Scarlett while also practicing pronouncing the word impression correctly

  • It made an impression on me. It made an impression on me

  • Clearly I it made an impression on me

  • But somebody else didn't care we're dinner on New Year's Eve New Year's Eve is the last day of the year in the Gregorian calendar

  • That is December 31st and Eve is the period or the day before a holiday or any date or event

  • For example in a lot of countries Christmas is mostly celebrated on December

  • 24th which is actually Christmas Eve another example, the president went on TV to give an air view on the eve of her visit China

  • At dinner

  • No, yes, we did. Clearly. I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care

  • We are dinner on New Year's Eve. We work together. Oh

  • My god, oh my god

  • Shame on you is an idiomatic expression used to say that someone should feel very sorry or ashamed for doing something wrong

  • This is helping your career, oh I thought you wanted to be an actor not the creator of crazy lawsuit game

  • And shame on you you should know better Joey needs to work

  • Come on, because I just felt like I was basically a glorified extra and you were Scarlett Johansson

  • so this is like wow an

  • Extra is a person who plays a character in a film who normally does not have a speaking role and who is usually a part

  • Of the scene for example in a crowd like you can see here

  • Brie means that she felt more like a glorified extra in that movie production

  • Meaning that although she had the status of being called an actress when compared to a star such as Scarlett Johansson

  • She thought she only had the qualities or relevance of an extra

  • so basically when you collocate

  • Glorified with a noun that indicates insignificance or relevance such as extra you are giving the idea that the person is more insignificant

  • Than what their position represents

  • Example, I don't understand why people pay so much for limousine rides. I think it's really just a glorified taxi

  • We did this movie called Don John that was directed by Joseph gordon-levitt, and we did

  • If you're an actress or actor to do a scene is to shoot and be part of a scene

  • I

  • Just want to say how wonderful I think you are you're not the Phantom is dying. Are you

  • I'm Joey Tribbiani. We did a scene together yesterday

  • Yes, it is cuz people have been waiting for a long time and it people go there's tattoos

  • I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right. Well - mark cuz he chickened out

  • Yeah, that's right mark you check it out

  • but it's like they're kind of like a sort of like an Avengers symbol with a little kind of in a oh

  • There's whose is that that's Roberts. I think is that a pile of hair a butt. That's gross

  • What is yeah, why does it go like wait, wait - take that

  • Why are you so much hair on the inside of his for nuts? That's a lot of hair on the inside of the forum

  • Kim

  • Yes, it is cuz people have been waiting for a long time and people go there's tattoos

  • I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos

  • Ellen is referring to how the cast of Avengers that is the stars in the movie all went to get new tattoos

  • I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right

  • well - mark has he chickened out in this case - means the same as except for

  • Example tell me the story again. Mine. Is that boring part in the middle? I?

  • Wish men could have children on their own like seahorses you want kids?

  • Maybe I've kind of lately been thinking about the whole wife and kids thing

  • Just - the wife you could always go it alone. I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right

  • well - mark has he chickened out - chickened out is an

  • Informal phrasal verb that means to decide not to do something because you're too frightened or scared

  • Example I was going to go bungee jumping but I chickened out at the last second

  • When you see Lily, would you give her that note because I wanted to talk to her at the memorial

  • but well, I pictured her getting mad at me the way you

  • me and like chickened out so

  • I wrote her that number would you give it to her place?

  • So Scarlett is saying that everyone got the specific new tattoo

  • Except for Mark Ruffalo who according to her was afraid of doing it and decided not to I know that you all have given yourselves

  • Tattoos for that right? Well - mark because he chickened out here

  • We can hear another interesting case of linking and connected speech notice how the D and chickened appears to connect with the word out

  • Making it sound like doubt chickened out. Well - mark has he chickened out because he chickened out

  • No, let's try and repeat after Scarlett. Well - mark because he sure can

  • Well - mark cuz he chickened out this is actually something that happens very often with phrasal verbs in English listen to these other examples

  • Okay, you you make sure Monica does not find out. Okay?

  • I give up you guys. I don't know what I'm gonna do with this thing

  • Hey mom, if you're at the store later

  • Could you pick up some ice we bought a hibachi together and then he ran off and got married and things got pretty ugly

  • If you're interested in mastering connected speech you should check out the free mini course that I told you about

  • Linked at the top and in the description below

  • Yeah, that's right mark you check it out

  • but it's like they're kind of like a sort of like an Avengers symbol with a little kind of in a

  • Symbol is a sign shape or object that is used to represent something else

  • For example brand logos normally have symbols he or she's talking about the Avenger symbol which most of the original cast got tattooed

  • Whose is that? That's Roberts. I think is that a pile of hair a butt. That's gross. What is it?

  • No, a pile of something is a large number of things that are put one on top of another

  • for example a pile of stones

  • Gross is and adjectives that can be informally used to describe somebody or something. That looks disgusting

  • Or unpleasant because it makes you feel sick. I

  • Tasted Jen's milk and Ross freaked out

  • Why'd you freak out because it's breast milk

  • It's gross

  • My breast milk is gross

  • No, Carol, there's nothing wrong with it. I just I just don't think breast milk is for adults

  • In the clip they are talking about what seems to be a pile of hair on the floor seen in the photo

  • They're looking at like we have to take that back. Why do you get so much hair on the inside of his florets?

  • That's a lot of hair on the inside of the forearm

  • The forearm is the lower part of the arm as seen here

  • The inside of the forearm is the area that is normally facing down or backwards on the same side of the palm of the hand

  • As you can see here

  • Robert Downey jr

  • Had to shave the inside of his forearm to get the tattoo

  • And the hair wondering why he had so much hair on that area in

  • American culture tattoos are more common than ever. What do you think about tattoos? Would you ever get one like scarlet?

  • Were you surprised that somebody would get a tattoo of her that would take up a person's entire back?

  • Yeah, that looks like the Bride of Chucky

  • Chucky is the popular fictional character that appears in the horror film series child's play

  • Scarlet is saying that that that two version of Bree seen here actually looks a lot like the Bride of Chucky
