  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 236. The lesson today is the difference between calm down and keep calm. Okay. Let's look at the notes here.

  • First let's look at calm down. Calm down is often used as an imperative. An

  • imperative it's like an order. When you tell someone do it. Shut up. Be quiet. You

  • know, you're ordering somebody to do something. So calm down is often used as

  • an imperative or order to express that someone should relax, be less nervous

  • tense, angry etc. So be less tense nervous. All right. Let's look at

  • keep calm, or we say remain calm or stay calm is used as a warning to someone not

  • to panic or allow oneself to get too nervous angry or upset. Yeah. So basically

  • calm down is used after someone has already lost control of their emotions.

  • They're panicking or they're screaming or they're nervous. And you say calm down, calm down, settle down first, remain calm, but when

  • we use remain calm or stay calm. It means they haven't lost control of

  • their emotions yet. We're telling someone stay calm. Don't allow yourself to do

  • that. That's basically what we are saying. So let's continue here. Most of the time, students

  • will say calm down, when they should be using stay calm or remain calm. If

  • someone has not to become very nervous or angry yet, and you sense someone is

  • about to. You should tell them to remain calm. This is the problem I've come

  • across with a lot of students are always saying calm down. When they should be

  • saying remain calm stay calm because they haven't lost

  • control yet. So let's look at the first example. Of course with the X, this one is wrong. When

  • I tell you this bad news, I want you to calm down. No. here it should be when I

  • tell you this bad news I want you to remain calm.. So with the check remain calm. Remember you

  • haven't told them the bad news yet. So they they're probably not nervous or

  • angry yet. So you're kind of warning them. Like yeah I'm going to tell you this bad

  • news but don't panic. Don't lose control of your emotions. I

  • need you to stay, you know, in control. Okay and let's take a look at the second

  • example here. When that tightrope walker walks across the tightrope, he must calm

  • down. Yeah. I remember tightrope walker that's like somebody in a circus they

  • walk across, you know, though the tightrope they're where they could fall.

  • So they have to remain calm all the time. They can't let themselves get nervous. If

  • they let themselves get nervous, they may fall. So they really have to learn how to

  • control their emotions. So of course here. The correct way to say it would have

  • been when that tightrope walker walks across the tightrope, he must keep calm.

  • He must remain calm. He can't allow himself to ever get too

  • nervous or otherwise he might, he might actually fall. Okay, anyway. I hope

  • it's clear. I hope you can clearly see the difference now between calm down keep

  • calm and remain calm. Anyway I hope it's

  • informative. Thank you for your time. bye-bye
