00:00
So a couple of weeks ago
00:01
I taught you some really mean English phrases
00:03
that I said you should never use.
00:05
And I thought today, in order to balance things out a bit,
00:08
I should teach you some happy phrases, some nice phrases.
00:11
So in this English lesson,
00:12
I'll teach you 10 happy, nice, awesome English phrases
00:16
that you would certainly be happy to hear
00:18
if someone said them to you.
00:20
(upbeat music)
00:26
The first nice English phrase I want to teach you
00:28
is one that you might hear at a restaurant,
00:31
and it's the phrase, "It's on the house."
00:33
This means the restaurant
00:35
is gonna give you something for free.
00:37
Let's say you went out to eat,
00:38
and it actually took a little longer
00:40
than you were expecting for the food to come.
00:42
And you were maybe a little bit annoyed,
00:44
but the food was still really yummy.
00:46
The restaurant, in order to make sure you're happy,
00:49
might say, "Hey pick something out off of the dessert menu,
00:53
it's on the house."
00:54
When they say it's on the house,
00:55
it means that they're going to give you dessert for free.
00:58
That would certainly be awesome
01:00
and it would certainly be a really cool English phrase
01:02
to hear when you're at a restaurant.
01:04
I think everybody likes getting something for free.
01:06
The next really nice phrase to hear
01:08
is the phrase "You're approved."
01:10
This is a phrase you will most likely hear at a bank
01:13
when you're applying for a loan.
01:15
Maybe you want to buy a car, or you want to buy a house,
01:18
and you want to borrow money from the bank.
01:20
You'll fill out forms and submit a whole bunch of details.
01:24
And then you're hoping the bank will call
01:26
and say to you "You're approved."
01:28
When they say you're approved it means everything's okay,
01:31
everything looks great,
01:32
you're going to be able to borrow the money,
01:34
you're gonna be able to buy that car or buy that house.
01:37
Certainly that would be a really cool thing to hear,
01:39
when you want to do one of those two things.
01:42
The next really nice phrase to hear or phrases actually,
01:45
are the phrases "I made it" or "We made it."
01:48
Sometimes someone you know,
01:50
will go on a trip and they'll go far away.
01:52
And when they get there,
01:53
they might phone you or text you and say, "I made it."
01:57
Or if it's more than one person, they'll say "We made it."
02:00
It's always nice to know when someone goes on a trip
02:03
and when they arrive at their destination.
02:05
So you might be worried about, did they make their flight?
02:08
Did they get there on time?
02:09
Did they arrive at the place that they are going to?
02:12
And when you get that text or you get that phone call
02:15
and you hear them say I made it, or we made it,
02:18
it just makes you feel good
02:19
because you know that they got to where they were going.
02:22
The next really nice English phrase
02:23
is something your boss might say to you at work.
02:26
And it's the phrase "You can go home early."
02:28
This is probably one of my favorite English phrases.
02:32
When you have a job, you need to arrive at a certain time,
02:34
and you can go home at a certain time.
02:36
But sometimes all of the work is done.
02:38
Or sometimes your boss is just feeling
02:40
really really nice that day.
02:41
And they might say, you can go home early.
02:44
And I think you totally understand what this means.
02:46
It means that you can pack up your stuff
02:48
and you can go home an hour or two
02:50
earlier than you normally do.
02:52
That is a great phrase to hear,
02:53
and a great thing to have happen during your day.
02:56
The next English phrase that's really nice to hear
02:59
or read is the phrase "You passed."
03:01
Maybe you took an English test
03:03
and you're waiting for the results.
03:04
You wanna know if you passed the test
03:06
or if you failed the test.
03:08
And then you get an email from the testing company
03:10
and you open it and it says "You passed."
03:13
This would be a great English phrase to read.
03:16
It would just be so nice, wouldn't it?
03:18
To think you've studied for so long,
03:20
you took a test and now you get to read
03:22
this really nice English phrase, "You passed."
03:26
Good job by the way.
03:27
The next really nice English phrase
03:29
that someone might say to you is the phrase
03:31
"It's already done" or "I did it for you."
03:34
Sometimes after a long day at work,
03:36
I know that there's some chores I need to do
03:38
around the house, but if I come home
03:40
and if Jen says "It's already done" or "I did it for you,"
03:44
that makes me really, really happy.
03:46
I know one day I knew that when I came home
03:48
I had to pay a lot of bills.
03:50
I needed to go online and pay a bunch of bills
03:52
using the computer and online banking.
03:55
And when I got home, Jen said, it's already done,
03:57
I did it for you.
03:58
That made me really really happy.
04:00
When someone does some work for you,
04:02
and then tells you about it,
04:03
that's certainly a good thing to hear during your day.
04:06
Another phrase that's really nice to hear
04:08
in English is the phrase "We'd like to offer you a position"
04:11
or informally, "You got the job."
04:14
Maybe there was a job that you really, really wanted.
04:16
Maybe your current job isn't very nice.
04:19
And so you applied for the job.
04:21
You went for an interview
04:22
and now you're waiting to hear back from them.
04:25
When you get that phone call, and when they say
04:27
"Hello, we'd like to offer you a position in our company,"
04:31
or again, informally they might just say,
04:32
hey, "You got the job."
04:34
You are going to be very, very happy.
04:36
That is a great phrase to hear.
04:38
It's one of the phrases
04:39
that can even be a little bit life changing.
04:42
Another really nice English phrase
04:43
is one you'll hear from your doctor.
04:45
And it's the phrase,
04:46
"Your test came back negative."
04:48
This is something that would make you feel relieved
04:51
as well as happy.
04:52
Maybe you haven't been feeling well,
04:54
and your doctor did a test
04:55
to see if it was something serious.
04:57
When the doctor says, "Your test came back negative,"
05:00
that is certainly going to be good news,
05:02
and that will be a good day for you.
05:04
Our local coffee shop is having a contest right now,
05:07
and they do it with an app that you have on your phone.
05:10
So when you buy a coffee or a sandwich from the coffee shop,
05:13
sometimes the app says "You won."
05:15
When you read the phrase "You won,"
05:17
or when you hear the phrase "You won,"
05:19
this certainly will make you happy.
05:21
Everyone loves winning stuff,
05:23
everyone loves getting something for free.
05:25
So another phrase that definitely
05:27
is a nice phrase to hear in English,
05:29
is the phrase "You won."
05:31
I'm gonna let you try and guess this last phrase
05:33
but I'll give you a couple of hints.
05:35
It starts with the word I, and it ends with the word you
05:38
and there's only one word in the middle.
05:40
And I think it's the phrase
05:41
that people love hearing the most.
05:44
Oh, I just used the word there, didn't I?
05:46
It's the phrase "I love you."
05:48
Whether it's a child saying to a parent "I love you,"
05:51
or a grandparent saying to a grandchild, "I love you,"
05:54
or partners in a relationship saying
05:55
"I love you" to each other,
05:58
This is a phrase that I think we as human beings,
06:01
first of all, don't say enough,
06:03
and second of all, I think we really really like hearing it.
06:06
Anyways, thank you so much for watching this lesson
