Hey, Bob the Canadian here, welcome to this English lesson.
I was just outside, and it's actually too cold outside right now and too windy to make a video out there, so we're going to do this one in the classroom today.
It's a little bit, it's a little bit warmer in here, and I think that will just go better.
In this English lesson what I think I'm going to do is talk about how to respond when someone asks you to do something in English that you don't want to do.
So let's do that.
Let's look at, let's say six ways that you can respond to someone when they ask you if you want to do something and, and it's something that you're just not going to do.
You're going to say no to them.
Well hey, Bob the Canadian here, learn English with Bob the Canadian.
Welcome to this video.

So, sometimes in life people ask you if you want to do something, and sometimes you want to say no.
So in this video, let's look at some ways that you can say, "no".
For the first example, let's imagine that a friend has asked if you want to go and see a movie.
You could respond with the simplest way of declining.
To decline is to say no.
And that's to say, "No thanks!" or "No thank you!"
So your friend says, "Would you like to go see a movie tonight?" and you could respond by saying, "No thanks!" or "No thank you!"
A second way that you could decline or say no to someone when they ask you if you would like to do something is to say, "I'm not interested."
So let's say someone has asked you if you wanted to go out for dinner with them.
You could say, "I'm not really interested tonight, I have a lot of other things going on." or "I'm not really interested at the moment, I'd rather do something else."
So another way to say no is to say that you're not interested.
A third way to say no to someone is to say, "I'd rather not."
So maybe someone says to you, "Would you like to go to the shopping mall?"
"I'd like to go to the shopping mall and do some shopping, would you like to come with?"
And you could respond by saying, "I'd rather not," which is another way of saying that you're not interested.
"I'd rather not go right now. I have other things that I need to do." or "I'd rather not go because I'm not interested."
So if someone says to you in English, "I'd rather not," it means the same as saying no or that they're not interested.
A fourth way that you can let someone know that you don't want to do something is to say, "I don't want to."
So maybe someone says to you, "I'd like to go for a long drive out in the country. It's a beautiful day."
You could say to them, "I don't want to."
So you're just expressing to them that it's not something that interests you.
It's not something that you would like to do, so you would say to them, "No, sorry I don't want to."
"I don't want to go for a drive out in the country today."
A fifth way to let someone know that you're not interested in doing something is to say, "I don't feel like it."
So maybe someone says to you, "Would you like to come over to my house for supper tonight? Would you like to come over to my house for dinner?"
You could say, "You know what, I just don't feel like it."
"I don't feel like it today."
"It's been a long day."
"I'm quite tired."
"I don't feel like coming over to your house for dinner."
And you can say, "I'm sorry" as well because that would make it a little more polite like, "I'm sorry I just don't feel like it today."
And the last way for this video, the last way to let someone know that you don't want to do something is to just say that you're not really in the mood.
You're not in the mood to do the thing they're asking you to do.
So maybe someone wants to take you to the library and you just say, "You know what, I'm not really in the mood."
"I'd rather stay home."
"So I'm not really in the mood for reading, so I'm not really in the mood to go to the library to get books."
That's one of the last ways that you can say, "no" to someone.
So that's six ways that you can tell someone that you don't want to do something.
Hopefully you've taken some notes and you've written some of these down.
