Speak English Fluently – STOP Saying These 5 Phrases

– Speak English fluently. Stop saying these five phrases. Now, last time, I made a video on how to speak English more fluently. It’s very interesting. It was a test, and I
thought, you know what? I know that I have a lot of
viewers, a lot of my fans from all over the world. They are tuning in to
learn different lessons: entrepreneurship, sales, wealth creation. But what I didn’t expect,
there’s so many of my fans, you tuning in, actually to learn English. So, that video went viral. It tells me this is
what you want to learn. So, I’m gonna teach you
more English lessons. Understand, I am not an English teacher. However, I’ve built a
very successful career based on the power of
communication, using my words, because everything that
comes out of your mouth, everything that you say
either attracts people to you or repels people to you. So, today we’re gonna
talk about five phrases that you shouldn’t use in
casual, day-to-day communication. Number one. My English is not good. Don’t say that. If English is not your first language, you don’t need to apologize. You know it, and I know it. We speak with an accent. That’s okay. Don’t need to bring attention to it, and you don’t need to apologize for it. I remember very often,
when I talk to someone, maybe speaking Chinese, and they’ll say, “Oh, no English! No English!” I’m like, “You just spoke English!” What are you talking about? Right there’s English! No no no no no English. I just find it, like, hilarious. So, don’t need to apologize. Don’t say, “Oh, my English is not good.” Don’t need to do that. Just say, “Hey, you know what? “I am learning English.” Turn it into a positive. “I’m learning English,” that’s it. And then, if you have a tendency when
you’re nervous to speak faster, slow down. Slow down. Pronounce each word. If they don’t understand, it’s okay. Just repeat it again. Phrase number two, and that is what? I hear this a lot from beginner
English speaker, right? When you hear something
you don’t quite understand, you say, “Oh, what what what what, what?” No, don’t do that. A proper way of, a
polite way of doing this is, “Pardon me.” Pardon me. And they’ll say it again. If you still don’t get it, “Pardon me,” or, “Excuse me.” Or, “Can you repeat that “one more time?” Just be polite, be professional. “Can you repeat that one more time?” But don’t say, “What, what did you say?” No, that’s not very polite. Number three. Goodbye. Now, goodbye usually is a very formal thing. When, usually when we say,
“Hey,” you know, “Goodbye,” it sounds like I won’t be
seeing that person for, like, years, for a long time. And more casually, let’s say you just, you just met your friend,
and you guys hang out a bit, and then afterwards, just say, “Hey, bye.” Don’t even say, “Goodbye,”
say, “Bye,” or, “I’ll see you.” “I’ll see you,” that’s it,
instead of saying, “Goodbye.” And number four, and I see this sometimes when I go to Asia, and that is sir or ma’am. Now, that’s very formal. Now, if you are a waiter,
waitress, you work in a hotel, then yes, you should use those phrases, but day-to-day conversation,
don’t say sir, don’t say ma’am. I would prefer to just call
them their first name, right? “Hey, John. Hey, Sally.” “Hey, Michelle,” just–
or if you want to be a little bit more formal
would be Mr. or Mrs. their last name. But don’t use sir and
ma’am unless you’re working in certain industry, that’s
in the service industry, then that’s a different story. But day-to-day conversation,
just first name, that’s okay. And last phrase that
you don’t want to use, and I hear this quite often. It’s, “Tell me your name.” It feels like a, like a police officer. You’re interrogating somebody,
like, “Tell me your name.” “What’s your name?” That’s it, or, “Where are you from?” Not, “Tell me where you’re from.” No, that’s, like, you see how
it’s, like, very intrusive? You don’t want to do that. Again, be calm. English is not scary. It’s okay, words don’t bite. All right, you don’t need to be afraid, especially if you’re learning, and I still speak with an accent. Doesn’t matter. Look at my YouTube channel, right? If you have a compelling message, if you speak with
conviction and confidence, people will listen. So, comment below what other
English lessons you want me to cover and you want me to teach you, and I will make future
videos based on those. So, make sure you do that. If this the first time you watch my video, I hope that you’re not just
tuning in to learn how to speak, but also pay attention
to some of the lessons that I teach through all my
videos because I know a lot of those lessons, they
will apply to your life. Doesn’t matter if you’re an entrepreneur. Doesn’t matter if you’re a professional. Doesn’t matter if you’re working a job. You’ll find value from those. That’s what I want to hear. That’s why I make the videos, right? Share with me. Comment below how my videos
have benefit you as well.
