  • (electronic music)

  • Hello everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy.

  • Today, I've got a really exciting video.

  • This video is going to be about 10 ways in which

  • you can express excitement in English.

  • I'm really, really excited because I'm going to Madrid

  • next week, my old hometown,

  • the place where I did my Erasmus.

  • I went to Universidad Complutense de Madrid,

  • and I am the official host

  • for Pangea Platforms Unleash 2017,

  • which is a huge celebration of young talent.

  • We've been having the final meetings.

  • I am so excited, and it's going to be my first time ever

  • presenting and hosting a big event,

  • so I'm really nervous, but really, really excited.

  • If you want to read anything about it,

  • find out some more information, I've got the links

  • to all of their social media and their website down below.

  • I'm counting down the days,

  • and I will be spending a little bit of extra time

  • in Madrid afterwards.

  • I'll be there 'til the 27th.

  • So if you're in Madrid at any point

  • between the 19th and the 27th of September,

  • and you see a confused-looking blonde girl

  • walking aimlessly down the street,

  • maybe say hello, 'cause it could be me.

  • So this lesson is going to be a really good boost

  • for your vocabulary.

  • It's all about ways in which you can express

  • feeling really, really excited or happy about something.

  • Let's get started.

  • Number one is "I can't wait!"

  • "I can't wait!"

  • "I can't wait" but when I say it quickly, I say,

  • "I can't wait. I can't wait."

  • so I almost used a glottal stop in between.

  • "I can't wait. I can't wait."

  • So I can't wait, you could say, "I can't wait

  • "to present the event," or, "I can't wait for Unleash."

  • Okay?

  • If you want more information about when to use "to"

  • and when to use "for", I have done a video all about it.

  • You can click up here.

  • The next one, "to be counting down the days."

  • I am counting down the days.

  • I am so excited.

  • I want this week to be over so next week can begin.

  • That's a really, really lovely phrase to use.

  • If someone says, "Are you excited to see me?"

  • you can say, "Oh, I'm counting down the days.

  • "I cannot wait to see you."

  • The next one, "to be looking forward to",

  • or to be looking forward to doing something.

  • We used the -ing verb there.

  • I am looking forward to presenting my first ever event.

  • I am looking forward to my trip to Madrid.

  • Be careful.

  • You might hear the mistake,

  • I'm looking forward to do something.

  • It's "I'm looking forward to doing something."

  • That's a very common mistake there,

  • so make sure you avoid it.

  • The next one is really similar,

  • but it's a bit more slang.

  • It's a bit more informal.

  • It's "to be dying to do something."

  • Notice how it's not "dying to doing,"

  • it's just "dying to do."

  • So you look forward to doing something,

  • but you are dying to do something.

  • So I am dying to see my old friends.

  • I am dying to meet everybody at Unleash.

  • The next one is one I've mentioned in a video before.

  • The phrase is "to be buzzing," "to be buzzing,"

  • and this just means you're so excited.

  • You feel so many positive emotions.

  • You're so enthusiastic about something.

  • And I mentioned it in my Top Five Happy Expressions video,

  • which you can watch up here,

  • and that video was quite popular,

  • and I think a reason why is because you can see

  • that I'm really, really, really happy in that video,

  • and I'm gonna tell you a little English with Lucy secret.

  • I filmed that video after my first date

  • with my current boyfriend,

  • and I was really, really happy and excited,

  • so I filmed that video.

  • And a lot of people commented underneath like,

  • "Ah, Lucy's so happy. Has she taken drugs?

  • "Is she drunk? Is she in love?"

  • And well, I don't know if I can say I was in love

  • at that point, but I was certainly buzzing,

  • so I just thought you guys might like to know that,

  • a little explanation when you look back.

  • So if you want to see me really, really happy,

  • go and check out the Top Five Happy Expressions video,

  • and see for yourself how buzzing I was.

  • Another phrase that's quite similar to "to be buzzing,"

  • is "to be pumped," and "pumped" is a little bit more like

  • you're ready to go, you want to begin,

  • you're full of motivation and energy.

  • So before Unleash, I'm going to be feeling really pumped,

  • like, "Yes, let's go. Let's begin."

  • You're really ready to start something.

  • Now the next three are alternative ways of saying,

  • "to be excited," because using the same word

  • over and over again can be quite boring,

  • and it can be quite repetitive,

  • especially if you're doing a writing exam,

  • and you want to find different ways of saying things.

  • So I've got three alternatives.

  • They're not always exact matches, but they're near enough.

  • So the first one is "to be thrilled."

  • This means to be really, really happy.

  • But if I say, "I am so excited to announce

  • "that I'm the presenter," I could also say,

  • "I'm so thrilled to announce," "I'm so happy to announce

  • that I'm the presenter."

  • You can also say, "elated."

  • I am so elated to announce that I'm the presenter

  • or also "delighted."

  • I am delighted to announce.

  • So those are three really nice alternatives,

  • if you don't repeat "excited" and "really happy"

  • over and over and over again.

  • That will help you expand your vocabulary a little bit.

  • The last one relates a little bit to "to be pumped,"

  • and this one is "to be fired up and ready to go."

  • Imagine before a race, all the athletes are there,

  • they're moving, they're really, they just want to run,

  • and that's "to be fired up and ready to go."

  • The motivation's there.

  • You just want to get started.

  • So, those are your 10 ways

  • of expressing excitement in English.

  • I hope you can see how excited I am.

  • I've decided to make a whole video about being excited.

  • If you want to learn more about the event,

  • which is an incredible event, you can have a look

  • at the Unleash video that I made a while back,

  • announcing my participation in the event.

  • You can click up there,

  • and you can also check out their social media

  • and their event pages.

  • Applications are now closed for this year,

  • but if it seems like something you'd want to be involved in,

  • you can always look for next year if they do it again.

  • And to anyone who is attending Unleash,

  • I am so excited to meet you.

  • I really, really am.

  • Please leave in a comment

  • because I can't wait to meet you.

  • Now, not everyone's going to be my subscriber,

  • but I've never really met subscribers before.

  • I've met a couple.

  • So that's something else that I'm really buzzing about.

  • Anyway, guys, that's it for today's lesson.

  • I hope you enjoyed it.

  • I hope you learned something.

  • Don't forget to connect with me on all of my social media.

  • I've got my Facebook, my Instagram, and my Twitter,

  • and I will see you soon for another lesson.

  • Muah!
