Let's have fun learning English together First I would like to apologize, because the last episode came out last June and I postponed the second half till now It's actually not that long, right? It's only been a half year, six months, 180 days, or 4320 hours. Yep Now I'm finally here. I'll first go over the important points from last episode then complete the whole content, to show my sincerity Today we will cover three parts of thinking in English Single word reflex, chunking, and substitution drill First I want to say that, thinking in English is not that difficult Of course, to express a thorough and complex meaning is not easy However, you only need to know a single word to start thinking in English So first, we're going to talk about single word reflex The correspond English word immediately pops up in your mind when you see something For example, in this room: a table, a computer, my sister, my new camera this messy room（what are you talking about） This is my sister's room, if you know what I mean Whenever you see a thing, you can quickly respond with its English name What if you see something that you don't know the English name of? Very simple Take out your phone and look it up, you will learn it immediately When doing this kind of practice, you can try making it a complete sentence Such as, that's a dog, there's a dog, it's a dot, etc Other than names, that is, nouns You can also think about movements, or verbs. So you can think about what you or others are doing Like, I'm talking, she's filming, you're watching, you're learning, you're starting to fall in love with Ray. (Uh, no they're not) I know you are. After that, you can try adjectives, to describe situations or emotions For example, I'm happy, it's funny, she's pretty, (uh huh) I'm lying (Hey! That's not even an adjective!) That's not an adjective By reflecting English words like this and doing more practice It's going to be unbelievably fluent when you actually use them The second one is chunking It's mentioned in linguistics, which means putting words in chunks In other words, "meaning" is now the basic unit of English, not "word" For example, "as a matter of fact" is a unit of meaning instead of five separate words I don't think of the meanings of every single word when I use them. They have a meaning as a group Thus when I want to say "事實上", I will naturally say "as a matter of fact" Here's another example, "make yourself at home". If we analyze the phrase grammatically "make" is a causative verb, left out the subject "you", "yourself" is a reflexive pronoun, "at home" is an adverb phrase You get it? I'm not going to explain it again However, we don't think about the complex grammar structure when we talk Because "make yourself at home" is a meaning chunk Which means "不用客氣、不用拘束", so we use them intuitively Therefore, use chunks instead of memorizing word by word So when you hear a common usage next time, try learning them as a whole While phrasal chunks may sound like a great idea, there are still drawbacks First, when you only know the Chinese words, you can't figure out the corresponding English chunk Second, even if you find it, the chunk can only express one meaning instead of flexibly create other meanings So the third one is, substitution drill Which is substituting different content after understanding the basic grammar structure to create different meanings English has a clear part of speech, and its positions often follow the same pattern As a result, understand the basic grammar structure lets you extend a sentence or create new sentences by substitution One simple example is that "I want to" plus a verb This is called infinitives in grammar, but you don't need to know that So for example, I want to talk to you, I want to teach you English, I want to make you improve, etc Except for substituting words, you can also substitute clauses For example, "how to think in English" is a clause as a noun, so it can be put in any objective's position Now look at this, "I need to learn this" can be substituted as "I need to learn how to think in English" You can even try using conjunctions to link two complete sentences together For example, "I'm already thinking in English, but I'll need to work on it more" This is the most flexible way to create different meanings but some basic knowledge of grammar structures are needed beforehand So the point is, after knowing grammar structures, substitute the appropriate words or phrases These are the three ways of how to think in English First, single word reflex. Second, chunking. Third, substitutional drill However, what it all comes down to is that whether you want to spend time thinking in English or not There no one but yourself can help you think So, after all this, start thinking in English today Just do it If you like this video, give us a thumbup If you want to have fun learning English with me, don't forget to subscribe Other than YouTube, you can also search "Ray Du English" to find us on Facebook and Instagram Here are more videos, and this is my website, go take a look if you are interested And that is a wrap for today, thank you guys for watching as always, watching as always, and I’ll catch you guys next time!
