  • Hi, Bob The Canadian here.

  • Welcome to this English lesson

  • where I'm once again going to help you learn

  • how to talk about yourself in English

  • by talking about myself in English.

  • I know it seems kind of weird but in this lesson,

  • I will tell you eight things that you don't know

  • about me and this time, I'm pretty sure

  • they are eight things that none of you know.

  • While I do that, I will give you example sentences

  • on how to express that.

  • But I'll also tell you what the opposite is.

  • So stick around I'll help you learn

  • how to describe yourself in English

  • by describing myself in English.

  • Well, hey, Welcome to this English lesson

  • where I'm going to help you learn how to describe yourself

  • in English by talking about myself.

  • Before we get started though,

  • if this is your first time here,

  • don't forget to click that red subscribe button over there

  • and give me a thumbs up if this video helps you learn

  • just a little bit more English.

  • So what's the first thing I want to tell you about myself.

  • Well, it's this.

  • I like to be on time, I don't like to be late.

  • I like to be on time for work,

  • I don't like to be late for work.

  • Whenever I go anywhere, I like to be on time

  • but what if you are the opposite of me?

  • How would you describe the opposite of someone

  • who likes to be on time?

  • Well, you would say it this way.

  • You would say, I'm always late

  • or you could also say I'm always running late.

  • So I know those are two extremes,

  • I know most of us are in the middle.

  • Most of us are usually on time and sometimes we're late.

  • But if you were to describe yourself,

  • you could say I like to be on time

  • or I don't like to be late

  • or you could say I'm always late or I'm always running late.

  • The second thing I wanted to tell you about myself

  • that you probably don't know is this, I am a messy person.

  • I'm not a very organized person.

  • My desk is always messy.

  • My vehicles inside are always messy, I'm a messy person.

  • I'm not a very organized person.

  • But what if you wanted to say the opposite?

  • You would say this, you would say I'm a very tidy person

  • or you would say I'm an organized person

  • Or you would say I'm very neat and organized.

  • So just a couple of example sentences

  • to describe your habits around organizing your things.

  • You could say I'm a messy person

  • Or you could say I'm a very organized person

  • or I'm a very neat and tidy person.

  • Sometimes when you are describing yourself in English,

  • you'll want to talk about your childhood.

  • You might wanna say things like this.

  • As a child I loved school, as a child I liked school,

  • as a child I didn't really like school

  • or as a child I hated school.

  • Which one of those four do you think is true about me?

  • I'll let you think for just a split second,

  • it's actually the first one.

  • As a child I loved school.

  • It was one of my favorite things to do.

  • I loved learning and I loved going to school every day.

  • So as a child I loved school.

  • I'm not sure what your answer would be

  • but there's four choices that you can choose from.

  • Another thing you might wanna mention

  • when you're talking about your childhood is

  • what your favorite subject was in school?

  • When I was in school, my favorite subject was French.

  • There's a great example sentence for you.

  • You can remove French and you can insert any other subject.

  • You could say, when I was in school,

  • my favorite subject was math,

  • when I was in school my favorite subject was science.

  • So another thing you can talk about

  • when you're describing yourself is you can talk about

  • what your favorite subject was in school.

  • I'm going to imagine you weren't surprised

  • that my favorite subject when I was in school was French.

  • It was just awesome, I loved that class.

  • I wish I could just be a French student my whole life.

  • I don't play a musical instrument.

  • I'm not a very musical person.

  • I did learn a little bit of piano when I was a kid

  • but I don't play a musical instrument.

  • Of course you might play a musical instrument.

  • So if you were describing yourself in English,

  • you might use my sentence

  • if you don't play a musical instrument

  • but you might use sentences like this.

  • I play the guitar, I play the piano.

  • Whenever you are talking about yourself in English,

  • one of the things you might want to mention to people

  • is if you play a musical instrument and which one you play.

  • I know this might surprise some of you

  • but I don't watch sports.

  • I mean, I watch sports sometimes

  • but in general, I don't watch sports.

  • I watch hockey when it's the playoffs a little bit

  • and I watched the Olympics when they're on

  • but I don't usually watch sports

  • but maybe you're the opposite of me

  • maybe you do watch sports.

  • In that case, you would say things like this,

  • I watch baseball or I'm a baseball fan.

  • You could say, I watch football or I'm a football fan.

  • So if you watch a sport, that's how you would say it.

  • If you are like me and you don't watch a sport,

  • you would simply say, I don't watch sports.

  • I don't play sports.

  • I know that might come as a surprise to you as well

  • but I don't play sports.

  • I am athletic, I like to walk every day

  • and I do work out a little bit

  • but I don't play sports.

  • You might be like me

  • and then you have some example sentences there

  • that you can use if you are describing yourself

  • or maybe you do play a sport.

  • In that case, you would simply say things like this.

  • I play baseball, I play basketball, I play soccer.

  • So either you play a sport or you don't,

  • it's always worthwhile mentioning this

  • when you are describing yourself in English,

  • because you might have something in common

  • with the person you are talking to.

  • Sometimes when I mentioned to someone

  • that I don't play sports,

  • they say I don't play sports either.

  • So another thing that maybe you didn't know about me,

  • I don't play sports.

  • I did play a little bit when I was a kid

  • but I don't play any sports right now.

  • The weekend is a great time to sleep in

  • but here's something interesting about me

  • that you probably don't know, I don't sleep in.

  • Actually that's not entirely true.

  • It would probably be better to say I rarely sleep in

  • because I do sleep in a little bit from time to time.

  • So you could say, I don't sleep in

  • if you are describing yourself or you could say,

  • I rarely sleep in but maybe you're the opposite,

  • maybe you really like sleeping in in the mornings.

  • You would then say, I sleep in or I love to sleep in

  • or I sleep in all the time.

  • I wish I could sleep in more,

  • I think as you get older

  • it gets a lot harder to sleep in.

  • Well, hey, thank you so much for watching

  • this English lesson where hopefully you learned

  • how to describe yourself by listening to me

  • describe myself in English.

  • If this is your first time here,

  • don't forget to click that subscribe button.

  • Give me a thumbs up if this video helped you learn
