If you say how is it going? It sounds too stiff It doesn't sound so friendly. So we say how is it going? How's it going? How's it going means? How are you? Like, how are you doing or how is your life going? So it's like a friendly kind of rougher more casual way to say. How are you? How's it going? How's it going?

What have you been up to? How have you been? How have you been? How have you been more? Naturally, how have you been? Sounds like how have you been in? Everyday speech so how have gets reduced to how of how of how have you been? How have you been? How have you been since the last time I saw you is what this means how have you been? So that you sound also gets shorter how have you been is kind of what it sounds like if I slow it down a lot How have you been? How you been? You might also hear too?

I've been planting a garden in front of my house I've been looking for a new car. I've been making videos on the Internet So I've been blah blah blah So eyes is short for I have been so this is a present perfect tense expression I've been something something you can use the progressive form. You can use an adjective here You can use whatever suits your situation so Yeah. Hmm. What have you been up to? I've been Sleeping a lot. How about something something? How about dinner? How about drinks? How about we do this later? How about something? This is a very Simple and easy way to make a suggestion to someone. How about blah blah blah So in fast speech how about sounds like how about how about how about we how about you? How about I how about so the a sound kind of disappears? How about we see a movie later? How about we go to the beach this weekend? How about we take a trip to Guam how about we bake cookies? How about we go on to the next expression? Okay. Sorry I can't sorry. I can't so sorry. I cannot this is a way to Refuse an invitation so to say no I can do that thing and I feel bad about it. Sorry I can't sorry. I can't So like sorry I can't you can add Like the thing you are refusing if you like you could say, sorry I can't go to the beach with you this weekend or sorry. I can't meet you for dinner tonight. I have to work late Sorry, I can't help you make your treehouse. I broke my leg. That was very specific sorry, I can't cook dinner tonight because I don't know how to cook when you want to refuse and You maybe don't want to give specific reasons. You can say sorry. I can't I use this recently Sorry, I can't go sure sounds good. Sure. Sounds good. So sure sounds good. You can put those two together Sure means yes, sounds good means like your idea Seems to be a good thing. Like I'm hearing your idea. It sounds like a nice idea. So this is a good way to Accept an invitation sure, sounds good or sounds nice. Sounds great. Sounds awesome. Sounds cool sounds fantastic You can change your adjective there if you like sure sounds rad Do you want to something something? Do you want to something something? Do you want to plus an activity? Like do you want to get dinner? Do you want to go for drinks? Do you wanna ride bikes? Do you wanna make videos for the Internet? Do you want to study English with me do you wanna I don't know Do you want to get a Charizard tattoo already has one? Do you want to is a friendly and easy way to make an invitation? For some kind of activity when we say this expression. We kind of put the sounds together so not do you want to but do you wanna do you wanna do you wanna Do you wanna so it's you can imagine it's like Dee ' why a waa and and aadya wanna do you wanna not do you want to but do you wanna do you wanna Go to the next one. I do. What do you call this? What do you call this? So when you don't know the Vocabulary word for something or you just forget it. You can use this expression. What do you call this? So again that do you becomes reduced. Do you becomes dia? What do you call this? So to call something is like to name something. What is the name you use for this thing? So what do you call this? Like? What do you call? This what do you call that? What do you call these? What do you call this? So you can use that when you don't know the word for something when you find something new as well. How do I get to? Location. How do I get to so how do I get to for example the station? How do I get to this hotel? Means what is the path I should take to arrive at that destination? How do I get to the beach room here? How do I get to my house from here or how do I get to the bar from here? How do I get to work from here? So how do I get to is a much more natural way to ask for directions? to some place so don't use how do I go or how do I Travel I guess but how do I get to a location? and don't forget your to also remember we use that preposition to Before the specific place name so a problem that I hear a lot is how do I go to there? So we don't use to before there because there is not a specific place How do I get to the station a station is a specific place or a hotel is a specific place? There is not a specific place so we cannot use to with there. So, how do I get there? It's fine. No to how do you get to the next one by scrolling down on the iPad? alright Let's go to the next one have a nice evening have a nice evening have a nice evening is a way to say Goodbye at the end of the day learners use. Goodnight At the end of the day like with coworkers or maybe leaving a restaurant like goodnight We use goodnight when we're like saying goodbye to our kids or like when we're actually in bed Like with a spouse or like your partner, or maybe you say it to your children or something like that? Goodnight, just before you go to sleep when you want to say goodbye at the end of the day Use have a nice evening. Have a good evening That's a much more like natural and polite way to say goodbye at the end of the day. Have a nice evening Have a good one. Have a good one. Have a good one. Have a good one means. Have a good day So one here, it means day. Have a good day, or have a good time or like have a good experience Until I see you again. Have a good one, or have a nice one I think have a good one is probably the most common have a good one so friendly Kind of polite ish. I suppose you can use this with your coworkers with your friends with your family members But it does help there's a little bit of distance there. I think have a good one. Okay onward Can I have item, please? Can I have item please? Can I have something please? So when you're shopping you can use this to request something from the person working at the store So can I have that shirt please? Or can I have for example? 200 grams of beef please or can I have that pack of cigarettes, please? So you can use any item in this pattern Can I have that thing, please? You can use singular you can use plural you can use a number here if you want But can I have and to make this more natural not can I have that thing, please? But can I have can I have can I have is kind of more natural? Can I have sounds like can I have Can I have? this iPad Yes, oh I got an iPad today number of the noun please This is used again when shopping and maybe specifically when you're buying things in quantity, so that means for example, like when you're shopping for food You maybe need to buy like fresh meat or a fresh fish for example and you want a certain quantity a certain amount of something you can use number of The noun please so I used the example before like 200 grams of the beef Please so you're buying things in bulk when you're buying in bulk It means you're buying a lot of stuff at one time. You can use an expression like this Of course, even if you're not buying in bulk, you can use this like two of the blue ones Please you can use that as well So this is just a simple pattern to use when shopping number of that noun Please how do I plus your verb phrase? So we talked about the expression? How do I get to a place this is how do I? Something so not yet. But how do I and then use a verb here? so one thing I hear learners do when they don't know how to do something is they use an expression like please teach me this thing or I don't know this So to make a request For someone to show you something you can use this pattern How do I use this computer or how do I turn on this car? How do I sell my kidney on the Internet? How do I learn English that's what a lot of people say just do it. It's the answer So, how do I plus your verb? So that's a much better way than please teach me use How do I learn English? How do I study grammar? How do I read books? so use just the simple present tense form of the verb in this what again another point to your Pronunciation point how do I becomes how do I how do I how do I do this? How do I do that? How late are you open? How late are you open? This is very useful when you're visiting Restaurants or bars or like retail shops as well the most natural way to ask what time a store or other? Establishment finishes is how late are you open? How late are you open? So if you ask this question, you will get the closing time as the answer Like, how late are you open? 8, how late are you open 10? How late are you open midnight or how late are you open or open? 24 hours. The internet is open forever We have no closing time here in English class 101 we're accessible Always, how late are you open? So how late are you so that ru is reduced. How late are you open? Are you sounds like how late are you open? We do not say how late are you closed? We don't say that you could say when do you close? That's also okay. When do you close? But how late are you open? Do you have any plans for?
