Hi. I'm Vanessa from SpeakEnglishWithVanessa.com.  
00:05
Do you want to learn English but you don't know  where to start? Don't worry, today I will help  
00:12
you. Let's get started. Vanessa: 
00:18
Recently, something shocked me. I asked my  students to choose their own level, beginner,  
00:26
intermediate or advanced in English and 25% of you  chose beginner. This shocked me because most of my  
00:37
YouTube videos and all of my English courses are  for intermediate and advanced English learners.  
00:45
I'm sorry to my precious beginner English  learners, I want to help you. For the past year,  
00:51
I have worked very hard to create a beginner  English course for you and today, I would like  
00:57
to show you a free sample of that course. Vanessa: 
01:00
Introducing, the Fearless Fluency Club Beginner.  You will be able to speak about your family, food,  
01:08
your house, traveling, your free time activities.  What a wonderful start to your English journey.  
01:16
Today, you will see module three, which is about  the house. I recommend clicking CC to view the  
01:25
full subtitles. This way you don't miss any words. Vanessa: 
01:29
To help you remember everything  that you learn in today's lesson,  
01:34
I have created a free PDF worksheet with all of  the vocabulary, all of the grammar, all of the  
01:41
pronunciation, plus you can answer Vanessa's  challenge question using what you've learned.  
01:48
You can click on the link in the description  to download this free PDF worksheet today. 
01:53
Vanessa: If you enjoyed this lesson, I invite you  
01:56
to join me in the Fearless Fluency Club Beginner,  where you can finally learn English and speak  
02:04
confidently. Course member Ildiko said, "This  course is fantastic. I like the most that you  
02:11
teach us real English, not classroom English, real  English spoken by real American English speakers."  
02:20
Elaine from Brazil said that she joined the  course to improve her English but then something  
02:26
surprised her. "What surprised me even more was  the wonderful community and the opportunity to  
02:32
meet and interact with so many wonderful friends  around the world." Love it. Great, Elaine. 
02:39
Vanessa: You can click on the link in the description  
02:42

02:48
this is too easy for me, no problem. Within  two weeks of your purchase, send me an email  
02:54
and I can switch you to the intermediate  level. No problem, no hassle, very easy. 
03:00
Vanessa: Let's test if the Fearless Fluency  
03:03
Club Beginner can help you to really improve  your English speaking skills. The course uses the  
03:10
conversation breakdown method. This method helps  you to catch the real meaning of conversations  
03:17
and learn real vocabulary, real expressions  and real pronunciation used in daily life.  
03:24
This lesson is just a short sample of  the full course. In the full course,  
03:28
you get five modules but in this lesson,  there's only one. Let's test if the conversation  
03:35
breakdown method in the Fearless Fluency Club  can help you to level up your English. Let's get  
03:42
started by watching a quick conversation. Vanessa: 
03:45
Welcome to the Fearless Fluency Club Beginner  conversation lesson. Let's watch Vanessa, me,  
03:53
and Dan clean the house. Listen for all of  the vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation  
04:00
that you learned in the module three lessons.  And don't forget to check out the guide, how to  
04:07
use this course for more tips about learning  with this conversation. Let's get started. 
04:13
Vanessa: Hey Dan, aren't you ready to tidy up? 
04:16
Dan: No, I'm not. It'll take all day and  
04:21
I'm trying to find my hockey stick. Vanessa: 
04:23
No, it won't take all day and  maybe we can find your stick  
04:28
while we clean. Dan: 
04:30
Okay. What's the first thing we need to do? Vanessa: 
04:34
We need to find the cleaning supplies. Dan: 
04:37
They're below the kitchen sink and the  vacuum and the broom are inside the closet  
04:43
in the dining room. Vanessa: 
04:44
Okay. Hey, aren't you going to get the supplies? Dan: 
04:49
I will, but can you do the laundry? The washing  machine is empty so we'll be able to wash the  
04:55
pillow cases, the sheets and the comforter. Vanessa: 
04:58
Okay, that's a good idea. Vanessa: 
05:00
I don't think everything will fit in the washer,  it'll overflow. I'll start with the sheets.  
05:08
Where's the laundry basket? Dan: 
05:10
It isn't on top of the dresser in the bedroom. Vanessa: 
05:14
That's where we always put it. I didn't move it. Dan: 
05:19
I found it. You're not going  to believe where it was. 
05:22
Vanessa: Was it between the bookshelf and the TV?  
05:27
By the coffee table? Next to the bathroom cabinet? Dan: 
05:31
No, it was outside. Vanessa: 
05:33
Wow. Well, I'm glad you found it. Dan: 
05:36
All right, Vanessa, what's next? Vanessa: 
05:39
Well, we need to clean the rug  and the carpet in the living room. 
05:43
Dan: You can do that. I'll clean the bathroom. 
05:46
Vanessa: Don't forget to scrub  
05:48
between the sink and the toilet. Dan: 
05:51
I'll wipe down the mirror too. Dan: 
05:55
Do you need any help? Vanessa: 
05:57
I'm trying to move the couch but it doesn't  want to move. And I don't want to scratch  
06:02
the floor. Dan: 
06:04
That's because there's something under it, silly. Vanessa: 
06:07
I didn't see anything. Dan: 
06:09
Look, beside the lamp. It'll surprise you. Vanessa: 
06:17
It's your hockey stick. Vanessa: 
06:19
Did you enjoy that conversation about finding  Dan's hockey stick and cleaning the house? Now  
06:26
it's time to move on to a vocabulary lesson so  you can use the same vocabulary that we used  
06:33
in that conversation. Let's go. Vanessa: 
06:36
Are you ready to naturally talk about cleaning  and organizing in English? In this lesson,  
06:43
you will learn some common verbs that we use to  talk about cleaning and organizing and then I will  
06:50
show you in my house, some items that are often  used in this topic, cleaning and organizing.  
06:58
Let's get started with the verbs. Vanessa: 
07:00
To clean. I clean the kitchen. Are you  cleaning? Let's say it together. Are you  
07:07

Great work practicing these cleaning and  organizing house words. The next step is to

review this lesson. Watch it again and again  and please speak out loud with me. Repeat my  
15:16
sentences out loud. It will help you to remember  these words a lot. Well, thanks so much and I'll  
15:22
see you the next time. Bye. Vanessa: 
15:24
How did you enjoy that vocabulary lesson?  Now it's time for a grammar lesson about  
15:30
prepositions of place so that you can use  these words on, between, on top of, under,  
15:38
in your daily life. Plus, a little quiz. Let's go. Vanessa: 
15:43
Where's the fork? Where's the bowl? Where's  the cup? Let's talk about prepositions of  
15:52
place in today's lesson. You are going to  master how to explain where an item is located.  
16:01
I'm going to help you with some similar words and  after each section, there will be a little test  
16:08
so pay attention. Vanessa: 
16:09
Let's start with these three words, above, on  top of and on. I want you to say these sentences  
16:18
with me. Are you ready? "The picture is above the  piano." The picture is above the piano. It is not  
16:29
touching the piano. It is above the piano. Say  this with me, "The food is on top of the fridge."  
16:40
The food is on top of the fridge. It is touching  the fridge. The food is on top of the fridge. Say  
16:52
this sentence, "The plates are on the shelf."  The plates are on the shelf. The plates are  
17:01
touching the shelf. Vanessa: 
17:04
What's the difference on top of or on? Usually  on top of is a high place, on top of the fridge.  
17:16
And on is everything else, on the shelf, on  the table, on the floor. It's not a high place.  
17:27
Are you ready for a little test? Where is the  bowl? Is the bowl above the plate? Is the bowl  
17:36
on top of the plate? Or is the bowl on the plate?  I'll give you three seconds to choose. Three. The  
17:45
bowl is on the plate. It's not super high, it's  touching the plate so the bowl is on the plate. 
17:55
Vanessa: Take a look at these words,  
17:58
under, below. Under, below. Can you  say this sentence with me? "The sheets  
18:06
are under the comforter." One more time,  "The sheets are under the comforter".  
18:13
Well, you can also say the sheets are below  the comforter but do you know what? The word  
18:21
below is not commonly used. It's more common to  say under. The sheets are under the comforter.  
18:32
What about these words, underneath, beneath.  The sheets are underneath the comforter. The  
18:42
sheets are beneath the comforter. These words  are very formal. We don't often use underneath or  
18:51
beneath in daily conversation so your best  choice is under. Let's have a little test. 
18:58
Vanessa: Where is the cup? Is the cup  
19:02
under the plate? Is the cup below the plate?  Is the cup underneath the plate or is the cup  
19:10
beneath the plate? I'll give you three seconds  to choose the best answer. Three, two, one.  
19:19
The cup is under the plate. All of these words  are okay but the best word for daily conversation  
19:28
is just under. The cup up is under the plate. Vanessa: 
19:32
Next we have behind, in front of. Behind  and in front of our opposites. Take a look  
19:42
at this sentence, say it out loud with me.  "The broom is behind the laundry basket."  
19:51
Or, "The laundry basket is in front  of the broom." Great. These are  
19:58
opposites. Their placement is opposite. Let's  have a test sentence. Where is the fork?  
20:06
Is the fork behind the cup? Or is the fork in  front of the cup? I'll give you three seconds.  
20:14
Three, two, one. The fork is in front  of the cup. Can you say that with me?  
20:21
"The fork is in front of the cup." Great work. Vanessa: 
20:24
The next prepositions are between, beside and  next to. Who can you say this sentence with me?  
20:35
"The sink is between the shelf  and the laundry basket." Between,  
20:44
there is something on both sides. Let's say it  one more time. "The sink is between the shelf  
20:53
and the laundry basket." What about  this? The shelf is beside the sink.  
21:00
The shelf is next to the sink. Beside, next to,  what's the difference? I have good news. Both of  
21:10
these expressions are the same and we use both  expressions in daily life so you have a choice.  
21:18
Can you say the sentence with me? "The shelf is  beside the sink. The shelf is next to the sink."  
21:27
Great work. Are you ready for a test? Vanessa: 
21:29
Where is the bowl? Where is the bowl? Is the bowl  between the fork and the cup? Is the bowl next to  
21:40
the cup? Or is the bowl beside the cup? Choose the  best option. I'll give you through three seconds.  
21:49
Three, two, one. The bowl is beside the cup or  the bowl is next to the cup. What about the other  
22:01
things? The cup is between the fork and the bowl  because there's something on both sides. Great. 
22:11
Vanessa: Take a look at these words near,  
22:15
close by and by. Are they similar? Are  they different? Look at these sentences.  
22:23
The coffee table is near the couch. Can you say  it with me? "The coffee table is near the couch."  
22:32
Or, "The coffee table is close by the couch." Are  you saying it with me? "The coffee table is close  
22:40
by the couch." Or finally, "The coffee table is  by the couch." The coffee table is by the couch.  
22:48
I have more good news, these three words  have the same meaning. You can use them  
22:54
whenever you want because all three are the same. Vanessa: 
22:59
Let's have a little test. Where  is the fork? Where's the fork.  
23:04
The fork is near the cup, the fork is close  to the plate or the fork is by the plate.  
23:15
What's the best option? I'll tell you in three,  two, one. The fork is close to the plate or the  
23:25
fork is by the plate. Their location is the close  to each other. It's of course correct to say near  
23:36
but the fork is not near the cup. Instead, we  can say the fork is near the plate. Great work. 
23:43
Vanessa: Look at these words, in, inside.  
23:47
Are they similar? Are they different? Let's look  at some sentences. The soap is in the bottle.  
23:55
The soap is in the cabinet. The soap is inside the  cabinet. What's the difference? Well really they  
24:06
have the same meaning but we use in more commonly  in daily conversation. It's not wrong, it's not  
24:15
weird to say the soap is inside the cabinet.  It's fine but it's more common to say the soap is  
24:23
in the cabinet. Let's have a little test sentence. Vanessa: 
24:26
Where is the fork? Where's the fork? The fork  is inside the cup or the fork is in the cup?  
24:35
Which one is the best for daily conversation?  Can you say it out loud? I'll give you three,  
24:41
two, one. The fork is in the cup.  The fork is in the cup. Great work. 
24:47
Vanessa: Look at our last two prepositions of place,  
24:51
out of or outside or outside of. Look at these  sentences and say them out loud with me. "The  
25:00
shirt is out of the dresser." Or, "The shirt is  outside the dresser." Or, "The shirt is outside of  
25:09
the dresser." With the word outside, you have two  choices, outside the dresser or you can add of,  
25:18
outside of the dresser. Both options are  great and very natural so it's your choice  
25:25
but what is the difference friends between the  shirt is out of the dresser and the shirt is  
25:31
outside of the dresser. Well, the first  option, the shirt is out of the dresser means  
25:40
the shirt was in the dresser and it moved out of  the dresser. We are thinking about where it was  
25:51
before. There's some movement that happens.  Let me give you another example. I am out of  
25:58
the car. I am out of the car. This means before  I was in the car and I moved out of the car. 
26:08
Vanessa: What about the second sentence?  
26:12
The shirt is outside of the dresser. The shirt is  outside of the dresser. Okay, it is a statement. A  
26:19
fact. There's no movement, just oh, the shirt  is outside of the dresser. Same for people.  
26:27
I am outside of the car. I am standing outside  of the car. Maybe I was never in the car, my body  
26:37
just outside of the car. It's more about placement  instead of movement. Are you ready for a little  
26:46
challenge test sentence? Yes, you can do it. Vanessa: 
26:50
Where is the bowl? Where's the bowl.  
26:56
Tell me, where's the bowl. I'll give  you three seconds. Three, two, one.  
27:04
The bowl is out of the box. The bowl is out of  the box. Why is out of correct? Because you saw  
27:15
it was in the box and now it moved  out of the box. But let's imagine  
27:24
this is our original situation. You  don't know where the bowl was before,  
27:31
you can use either. The bowl is out of  the box or the bowl is outside the box.  
27:38
The bowl is outside of the box. If this is what  you see, no problem. You can use both options. 
27:45
Vanessa: Great work, practicing all of these  
27:48
prepositions of placement. I recommend now going  back and reviewing this lesson, speaking out loud,  
27:56
practicing all of these sentences and also  make sure you listen for these prepositions  
28:02
while you watch English movies, TV shows, songs  because I know that you will hear them in daily  
28:09
conversation and I want you to be able to use them  naturally yourself. Well, great work and I'll see  
28:14
you again the next time. Bye. Vanessa: 
28:17
Now that you feel more comfortable with under,  on top of, beside, these prepositions of place,  
28:24
let's go on to the pronunciation lesson. To speak  
28:28
real English and express yourself as naturally  as possible, you need to use contractions.  
28:36
What's a contraction? Well, let's find out. Vanessa: 
28:40
Are you ready to speak English more clearly?  Let's do it. In lesson, you will master  
28:46
how to use contractions in daily English.  What's a contraction? A contraction is two  
28:54
words put together with an apostrophe like this.  I plus am is I'm. Notice the letter A is gone.  
29:08
It's because the apostrophe replaced A so you  can say I'm. I'm. It's not a problem to say I am  
29:20
but in daily English, it is very common to use a  contraction. I'm. Most contractions use a pronoun.  
29:29
A pronoun is I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they.  Let's start by talking about contractions with  
29:40
the verb to be. Let's get to work. Vanessa: 
29:43
Because this is a pronunciation lesson, you  need to be active. You need to speak out loud.

I want you to repeat the sentences out loud with  me. Don't think the sentences, say them out loud.  
29:59
This will help your pronunciation muscles and your  confidence. Let's see some common contractions  
30:06
with to be. I am, I'm. Say it with me, "I'm." I'm  cleaning under the couch. Say it with me, "I'm  
30:19
cleaning under the couch." You are, you're. Say it  with me, "You're." Let's say a sentence together.  
30:31
"You're cooking breakfast." You're cooking  breakfast. Great. Let's change the first word, he  
30:41
is. He's cooking breakfast. Say it with  me, "He's cooking breakfast." Or she is,  
30:52
she's cooking breakfast. Say it with me, "She's  cooking breakfast." It is. It's my favorite food.  
31:04
Say it with me, "It's my favorite food." We are.  We're cleaning the whole house. Say it with me.  
31:16
"We're cleaning the whole house." I didn't say  we cleaning. I said, "We're." Say that with me,  
31:27
"We're." Great. They are, they're. They're.  They're coming to visit. Say it with me,  
31:38
"They're coming to visit." Vanessa: 
31:41
Before we talk about adding a negative word, not,  let's talk about some contractions that don't use  
31:50
a pronoun but they use the verb to be. That is,  that's. That's my dinner. Say it with me, "That's  
32:02
my dinner." There is, there's. There's my  dinner. Say it with me, "There's my dinner."  
32:12
What is, what's my dinner? Say it  with me, "What's my dinner?" Great. 
32:19
Vanessa: Let's move on to some negative contractions.  
32:24
Is plus not makes isn't. Isn't. Which  letter is gone? The letter O. He isn't  
32:39
tidying up. Can you say it with me? "He  isn't tidying up." Are plus not is aren't.  
32:50
Aren't. We aren't organized. Can you say  it with me? "We aren't organized." Great. 
33:01
Vanessa: Let's review these contractions with  
33:04
to be before we go on to some other verbs. I want  you to say them out loud with me. Are you ready?  
33:12
I'm cleaning. You're cleaning. He's cleaning.  She's cleaning. It's clean. We're cleaning.  
33:26
They're cleaning. That's my broom. There's  my broom. What's a broom. It isn't a broom.  
33:41
They aren't brooms. Great practice. Vanessa: 
33:46
Let's go on to some contractions that use  another verb, do. We only use contractions with  
33:53
do when we include the word not. This is taking  it to the next level. Do you remember, he isn't?  
34:04
This is a negative contraction. Isn't. We are  going to do the same thing with the verb do.  
34:11
Take a look at this. I don't like hot dogs. I  don't. What's happening here? We have do plus not  
34:27
and the O is gone. It is replaced with  an apostrophe. Same as isn't or aren't,  
34:35
which also have the O gone and an apostrophe.  Do you think you can a sentence with me?  
34:42
"I don't like hot dogs." I don't like hot  dogs. Great. Or we can use the past tense,  
34:54
I didn't tidy up my bedroom. Can you say that  with me? We have did plus not. Say it out loud,  
35:06
"I didn't tidy up my bedroom." Great. Vanessa: 
35:11
Next we have does plus not, doesn't. Doesn't. Can  you say it with me? "Doesn't." Let's put it in a  
35:23
sentence. He doesn't like to clean the bathroom.  He doesn't like to clean the bathroom. Great work. 
35:34
Vanessa: The next contractions include the word  
35:37
will. We use will for the future. Something  that will happen in the future. Take a look  
35:44
at this. I'll introduce you to my cousin.  I'll introduce you. What's that first word?  
35:55
I plus will is I'll. Here, two letters are  gone. Do you know what they are? I'll, W and I  
36:08
are gone so you can say, "I'll introduce  you to my cousin." Can you say that with me?  
36:16
"I'll introduce you to my cousin." Great.  What about this? You will, you'll. You'll.  
36:28
Make sure you have a clear L. Your  tongue is between your teeth. You'll.  
36:35
You'll love this cake. Can you say that sentence  with me? "You'll love this cake." Great. What  
36:44
about these words? He will, she will, it will.  Let's take out W and I and make it he'll, she'll,  
36:57
it'll. Say the sentence with me, "He'll clean  the whole house. She'll clean the whole house.  
37:10
It'll be clean." Can you say that again with  me? "He'll clean the whole house. She'll clean  
37:20
the whole house. It'll be clean." Vanessa: 
37:24
Let's go on to the next one. They plus will  is they'll. They'll. Say it with me, "They'll.  
37:33
They'll watch TV in the living room." Can you say  the sentence? Yes, of course you can. "They'll  
37:41
watch TV in the living room." We plus will is  we'll. We'll. We'll meet my sister tomorrow.  
37:55
We'll meet my sister tomorrow. Vanessa: 
38:00
Next I have a negative contraction  using will. What is will plus not?  
38:10
There is an unusual change that happens.  Will plus not becomes won't. Won't.  
38:22
Here we are taking out the I but we are adding,  O. Don't forget this. This is an exception. Won't.  
38:33
Won't. Let's say a sentence. "They won't  be happy if we are late." Say it with me.  
38:44
"They won't be happy if we are late." Great work. Vanessa: 
38:50
Let's review these contractions with will. Say it  out loud with me. "I'll tidy up. You'll tidy up.  
39:01
He'll tidy up. She'll tidy up. It'll be tidy up.  They'll tidy up. We'll tidy up. We won't tidy up."  
39:17
Great work practicing these natural contractions.  It will help your speech to become more fluent and  
39:24
for you to become more confident when you speak. Vanessa: 
39:28
I recommend reviewing this lesson, speaking  out loud and listening for contractions  
39:36
while you are watching TV, while you are listening  to songs. You can do it. Keep up the great work  
39:42
and I'll see you the next time. Bye. Vanessa: 
39:45
Are your pronunciation muscles warmed up?  I hope so because now it's time to speak.  
39:54
Let's check out the speaking lesson. Let's go. Vanessa: 
39:58
Are you ready to practice speaking English with  me? Yes, let's do it. Today, you will practice  
40:06
five questions from the vocabulary lesson,  five questions from the grammar lesson and  
40:13
five questions from the pronunciation lesson  in module three. I will ask the question. I  
40:20
want you to listen and then speak out loud.  Answer out loud. Don't answer in your head,  
40:29
answer out loud. And when I pause, I will listen  to you. Wherever you live, I will listen to your  
40:37
answer so please be active. Speak out loud. If you  need more time, you can click pause on the video,  
40:46
answer for more time and then continue the video.  All right, are you ready for five questions from  
40:54
the vocabulary lesson? Let's start. Vanessa: 
40:57
Where can I find the broom to sweep the floor?  
41:02
You could say, "You can find the broom in  the closet." Great. I want you to make a  
41:11
full sentence. You could say, "In the closet,"  but this is too short for our speaking practice.  
41:20
I want you to make a full sentence. The broom is  in the closet. The broom to sweep the floor is in  
41:27
the closet. This is very good. Let me ask again,  where can I find the broom to sweep the floor?  
41:38
Great work. When will you tidy up the living  room? How often do you clean the kitchen?  
41:57
Did you find that coffee mug?  
42:05
Notice this question, you can say, "Yes," or you  can say, "No," but this does not practice the key  
42:14
vocabulary so please is make a full sentence.  Yes, I found the coffee mug. Or, no, I did not  
42:22
find the coffee mug. Great. A full sentence. Do  you know someone who doesn't lock their door?  
42:34
Excellent. Vanessa: 
42:35
Let's go on to five questions from the grammar  lesson. What is on that shelf? You could say,  
42:43
"There is a book on the shelf." Great.  Let me ask again, what is on that shelf?  
42:56
How often do you clean under fridge?  
43:05
Who put the cookies on top of the freezer?  
43:16
Do you always put dirty laundry in the  laundry basket? What is next to your bed?  
43:37
Great work. Vanessa: 
43:38
Let's go on to five questions from the  pronunciation lesson. Do you know what  
43:43
time we are meeting for dinner? You can say,  "We're meeting for dinner at 7:00 o'clock."  
43:52
Great. Please use the contraction, we're meeting  for dinner at 7:00 o'clock. Let me ask again,  
43:59
do you know time we're meeting for dinner?  Why isn't the laundry basket in the closet?  
44:20
Why aren't you ready yet?  
44:31
Do you think they'll love the dessert?  
44:39
Why didn't you tidy up before the party? Great  work practicing all of these questions in speaking  
44:54
out loud. I recommend reviewing this lesson and  continuing to practice your speaking skills.  
45:01
I'll see you again the next time. Bye. Vanessa: 
45:04
