  • Unbreak my heart. Say you love me again. Un...

  • Oh, hey, guys. Don't mind my singing. I'm Alex.

  • Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "Talking About Broken Hearts".

  • So, many of us have had our hearts broken, whether because of a relationship, or because

  • you received some bad news, or maybe you really love a sports team and they lost, and they

  • broke your heart. So, today, we are going to talk about broken hearts and the different ways

  • we can use the term "heart" and the verb "break" in different context, different situations,

  • different grammatical structures.

  • So, first of all, again, the most common situation, if someone breaks up with you, ends a relationship

  • with you, if you want to be very dramatic, you could say: "She (or he) broke my heart!"

  • All right? In the past tense. "She broke my heart!", "He broke my heart!" Now, again,

  • this... Because it's a verb, "break", you can use it in any tense you wish. So you can

  • say: "I have had my heart broken before." You can also make a prediction for your friend,

  • like: "He's going to break your heart!" So, you can use it in a variety of tenses.

  • "You will have had your heart broken." You know, any tense you can think of.

  • If you wanted to use this in a passive construction and say that you are the one, you know, who

  • had their heart broken, you could say this: "I had my heart broken." Or: "I got my heart broken."

  • So the passive would be: "I had my heart broken.", "I got my heart broken." Okay?

  • And now, here... Here, we have the term "heartbreak". And if you're talking about "heartbreak",

  • the noun, the concept of having a broken heart, you would use the verb: "suffer". So: "I'm

  • suffering from heartbreak." And if you notice, I put two pop culture references related to

  • heartbreak. So, for example, Elvis sang a song called "Heartbreak Hotel", and if you

  • are a professional wrestling fan, you might be familiar with the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels.

  • And he's a professional, ex-professional wrestler; he's now retired. But he was known

  • as the Heartbreak Kid, and the Sexy Boy in professional wrestling.

  • So, you can also say a person who breaks hearts regularly is a heartbreaker. Okay? So: "She's

  • a heartbreaker." Or: "He's a heartbreaker." Someone who breaks hearts and doesn't, you know,

  • stay long in relationships, but just breaks people's hearts. So, he or she is a heartbreaker.

  • Now, let's look at some adjectives and some past participles as well. So: "I was heartbroken

  • when I heard the news. So, you can have your heart broken by something. And if you want to say...

  • You know, use an adjective, you can say: "Oh, I am heartbroken." Or: "I was

  • heartbroken." Or: "I'm gonna be heartbroken" if they lose or when the news comes,

  • or something like this.

  • And instead of "heartbroken", it's also possible to reverse this and say: "brokenhearted".

  • Now, again, many more contexts, we would use the term "heartbroken". I am heartbroken.

  • But you can also say, you know: "He's a brokenhearted romantic." Or: "A heartbroken romantic." So

  • they're both very similar meanings. I would say "heartbroken" is much more commonly used

  • in popular speech, common speech.

  • And, finally, if you want to use, you know, an adjective that describes a situation or

  • news, a game, a movie, a book, or again, a situation, you can say: "It was heartbreaking!"

  • So: "The news was heartbreaking. It broke my heart.", "The game was heartbreaking.

  • The loss of my favourite team broke my heart.", "The movie was heartbreaking. I just saw

  • "The Notebook" and it broke my heart. It was a heartbreaking movie." Or: "The book was heartbreaking."

  • I just read... I've never read Love in the Time of Cholera, but let's imagine... I'm

  • imagining that Love in the Time of Cholera might have some heartbreaking moments. Okay?

  • So, just to get a quick review, the most common phrase is: "He broke my heart!" Or: "She broke

  • my heart!" You can use it in any tense. "He's going to break your heart.", "You had your

  • heart broken.", "I have had my heart broken." Whatever it is. So, again,

  • I had my heart broken. I got my heart broken.

  • If you use the term "heartbreak"... You can suffer from heartbreak. And, again, pop culture

  • references. Think of "The Heartbreak Hotel" by Elvis or the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels.

  • And you can say: "He is a heartbreaker.", "She is a heartbreaker." A person who breaks hearts.

  • You can be heartbroken, you can be brokenhearted, and something can be heartbreaking. Okay?

  • So, don't break my heart. Please, do the quiz on And don't forget to subscribe

  • to my YouTube channel. See you guys later. Bye.

  • Unbreak my heart. Say you love me again.

Unbreak my heart. Say you love me again. Un...
