  • Full crew~ Has this ever happened to you?

  • You are having a conversation with someone and all of a sudden your

  • conversation dies, a miserable death of stenchy bad conversation.

  • Why did that conversation die?

  • I ask you. There's probably two very good reasons why your conversation has died.

  • The first one is that you are too shy or too embarrassed to ask a person about

  • new vocabulary. We are living in such a time as we have new slang, old slang, new

  • vocabulary, old vocabulary around us all the time. Sometimes my mother will say a

  • word

  • and I will have no idea what the word means because it's either British

  • English or really old-fashioned or old school.

  • On the other hand if you're talking to native Canadian speakers are native

  • English speakers they might throw some slang at you

  • and you have no idea what they're saying.

  • For example, if someone said I have to go take a dump.

  • yeah what a dump truck? You're taking a dump truck?

  • So, instead of stopping the conversation with the person who has to take a dump,

  • you're going to realize that you have just earned some new exciting vocabulary.

  • This is a common occurrence in a conversation.

  • Two people will be talking area hey man -

  • one person will say a new word and the other person will stop talking because

  • they don't want to look stupid and just ask the person to for one very simple

  • question.

  • What's that? So, if I was talking to someone or you were talking to me and I

  • said excuse me I have to take a dump

  • I'll be right back. I'm back. Instead of not talking to me anymore,

  • what you're going to do is you're going to ask me "Ronnie, what's take a dump" and

  • I'll say, "Oh yes. Take a dump means I have to go to the washroom."

  • I'll be right back.

  • You can use this with one word or a phrase like I have used. "Take a dump" is

  • slang.

  • iI's usually used with when men speak to two girls you can see it - it doesn't

  • matter.

  • take a dump basically means you have to go number two.

  • There's going to be some poo. It's usually not polite to mention to people:

  • "My name is Ronnie nice to meet you. I gotta take a dump." It's better to be more

  • polite and say, "I have to go to the washer," and we don't care what you're

  • doing there.

  • or do we? The second thing you can say, "What does the word mean?"

  • ok or the phrase mean. These two expressions are the same

  • Let's imagine that I was telling you about my adventures in Mexico and that's

  • imagine that I went to a beach in Mexico and I saw a donkey and you have no idea

  • what a donkey is. So instead of going huh

  • or the other thing that people do is they go "donkey, donkey, donkey, donkey,

  • donkey"

  • I then think one you did not hear me say donkey or two

  • you have no idea what I'm talking about

  • so instead of repeating the word you don't know

  • donkey donkey donkey. Literally asked the person the question "What's donkey or

  • what does donkey mean?"

  • oh it's soon of use

  • you have asked them the question they realize that you don't understand some

  • new vocabulary people will try to help you

  • maybe. They want most people want to teach you new slang new vocabulary.

  • They want to help you, so instead of closing off running away

  • what you're going to do is you're going to ask them "What's this word mean or

  • what does xxx mean?"

  • Okay, you cannot say what does mean donkey.

  • I hear a lot of my English students saying teacher

  • what donkey mean does you cannot change the structure of the sentence

  • this is very easy it's one word. What's mystery word.

  • Okay, so practice if someone throws out some new slang new vocabulary, don't be

  • afraid come back with these two words, conversation skills.

  • second thing this happens to me, so I can imagine it will happen to you

  • maybe you are learning English

  • maybe you are learning how to communicate with people at a new job.

  • I don't know. What are you doing? What you're going to do is you know the

  • English word

  • You know... you know this word. You know this word. You've heard this word

  • before, but you don't remember the English word or you don't know the word

  • whatsoever.

  • You know the word in your language but you have not learned the translation

  • into English language.

  • This is where the fun begins. So for the second reason a you don't know the word

  • at all or you don't remember the english word what you're going to do you get to

  • play a game with

  • the person you're talking to. Yes, you're going to take all of the vocabulary

  • adjectives and verbs that you know you're going to play a game with the

  • person

  • this game is called guess the word you're going to start the game by saying

  • a question you're going to say "How do you say...?" You are going to use all of your

  • vocabulary and you're going to describe the word that you don't know or don't

  • remember.

  • For example, I can say, "How do you say the food and that you sometimes eat at the

  • movies, and it's it's white and yellow

  • sometimes we put butter on. "Popcorn!" your friends like "popcorn!"

  • "Popcorn!"

  • you have just remembered or learn the word that you couldn't do the next

  • phrase you can say to the people or the person

  • what do you call. Again these two words are the same, so these two sentences are

  • exactly the same.

  • You're going to use this or this.

  • They're the same words same sentences again you're going to play the game with

  • the people. I'd like to put out a warning as well.

  • Some people are stupid, so be careful,

  • some people you could describe the word and they still have no idea

  • That's when you get out your dictionary and leave. And the next sentence

  • what do you call again these two of the same I can say, what do you call the

  • animal that looks like a horse but it's a little smaller

  • it has long ears and I can ride the animal.

  • I think the animal was in Shrek

  • you know the movie Shrek? Oh! donkey donkey your friend or the person you're

  • talking to know is the movie Shrek and tells you because of your beautiful

  • description that mystery word is donkey.

  • So the next time you are having a conversation with someone

  • maybe he was a native speaker or someone who you're talking to for the first time

  • ,and you do not understand them or you're having a conversation breakdown

  • do not panic. Remember, ask them about new vocabulary and ask them play our

  • beautiful game.

  • Ask them to just to talk about the word you're going to talk about the word and

  • they will tell you your magic answer. If you would like to do a quiz on this, go

  • to invade com

  • take the quiz, bye.
