Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

3 Easy Exercises to Lose Thigh Fat
What can you do to lose thigh fat? Diet and general exercise are always recommended, but these 3 simple exercises will target your inner and outer thighs so you can slim them down, say goodbye to cellulite, and prevent chafing. If you do these exercises consistently, you could even lose fat from other parts of your body! Targeting a particular area for fat loss is always tricky, but these exercises will give you the best chance to lose that pesky thigh fat. For the best results, add these exercises to your existing workout routine. The best workout will include cardio, strength training, and flexibility exercises. And remember to also follow a healthy diet! TIMESTAMPS: Side-lying leg raise 0:52 Tree lean to side lunge 3:08 One-legged hip thrusts 4:48 #thighfat #loseweight #thighchafing Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - #1. The best part of this move is that you can do it anywhere — as long as there’s enough space! It will help you tone your glutes and hips, but it will mostly target your outer thighs. If you are one of the millions of people in the world with cellulite, focusing on this powerful outer thigh exercise will help you regain smooth legs and might help you drop a jeans size. - #2. Lunges are a vital part of any exercise routine that seeks to reduce thigh fat. They are good at increasing your heart rate, which leads to fat burn. And when you add the tree lean move, you get a really effective combo movement! A regular lunge will usually target just your inner thighs, but this move will also work your core, hips, and entire lower body. - #3. The legs are one of those stubborn areas where a lot of fat can be stored even if you are slimming down in other areas, so don’t get discouraged. It’s important to do the right leg exercises that’ll help you not to bulk up. If you are set on slimming down rather than getting legs that are too muscular, it’s best to do exercises like this over other popular leg exercises like squats.

Here is surely an overview with the basics of rafting lower the rapids. Adrenaline Rafting Basics Within the previous 30 many years, rapids rafting has gained huge recognition. Folks often go in groups for any spouse and children gathering, mates reuniting and even corporate team making workout routines. Rafting is massively entertaining and an undisputed adrenaline rush. At its core, whitewater rafting is simply the act of getting a raft lower by means of turbulent places of your river. These turbulent places are often known as rapids. Rapids are formed by 3 things -- constriction, gradient and obstruction. Drinking water naturally flows downhill because of gravity. When it is constricted, it pushes in from your sides, speeding up and obtaining turbulent. Speed also raises in the event the gradient get steeper and, not surprisingly, obstructions cause normal water to crash into them and swirl all around as the flow tries to find the perfect strategy to observe gravity. Every of those gatherings brings about rapids plus the resulting turbulence churns the normal water hence causing the froth. The purpose of rafting is usually to surf these rapids devoid of getting flipped or dragged under. Rapids are classified by 6 classes. Category one is usually a smooth river without any rapids. The classes climb from their very Category 6, that is both impassible or should only be attempted by experts. Most river rafting trips take place on Category a few and four rapids, exactly where the turbulence gives you an thrilling experience, but with restricted risk. River rafts are typically major and sturdy. They keep among 6 and 12 people unfold equally on each side. Despite the fact that an professional information controls the steering on the back again, most rafting corporations permit the passengers to paddle on each side with the raft in their corresponding spots. River rafting includes a certain risk aspect and security is paramount. All rafters totally should put on helmets and everyday living jackets. Falling out with the raft can be a common occurrence relying around the river conditions. All rafters must be able to swim. You'll find hundreds of rivers that happen to be fantastic for rafting trips. Most people pick a rafting business for his or her trip since the business is definitely familiar while using river conditions and has the required products. http://www.sportsdirectbuy.com/ http://www.sportsdirectbuy.com/tag/top-rated/ http://www.sportsdirectbuy.com/tag/highest-quality/ www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKCB3GDB4BU www.youtube.com/watch?v=7znM5LX5bsE www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWjxvyJht_A

Even if you are an advanced speaker of English, I'm sure you will discover one or two rules that you didn't know about. Watch the lesson, then take the quiz at http://www.engvid.com/grammar-8-rules-the/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, everyone. I'm Jade. In this lesson today, we're looking at the rules for articles, but more specifically, the rules where we have exceptions in using articles. So when I'm observing people's English, all the time I'm hearing the same mistakes with articles. So what you will learn to do in this lesson is how to avoid those really, really common mistakes I hear all the time. If you're somebody who just doesn't use articles at all because in your native language, you don't have articles, I understand it can be really, really hard to start using them. But they are an important aspect of grammar, and you should be using them. So if you watch this lesson, you'll get some tips for using articles, where you need them, and where you shouldn't use them. And also, if you're someone who's getting articles right nearly all the time, I'm quite sure that you will pick up one or two rules here that you didn't know before. So let's get started. There are eight different rules. Rule No. 1: When we're talking about countries, most countries we don't use an article. So here some sentences. "She lives in England. They live in America." We don't use articles. But if the country's considered to be a nation state, a collection of different states, or a collection of different countries in one bigger state, then we use articles. Here are examples. So "the U.S.A., the U.K., the U.A.E." -- where I spend a lot of my time -- and here are -- also, we need to mention islands. When a country is a group of islands, we always use articles. So we would say "the Virgin Islands", and we'd say "the Philippines" as well. It's interesting that we can say, "She lives in England" because England is one country, but when talking about the same -- okay, it's not exactly the same place, the U.K., because it's -- the U.K. is more than one country. It's more than just England. But sometimes people think of it as being the same place. It's not. When we're talking about the U.K., we need an article, but just for "England", it's okay not to use an article. Let's take a look at rule No. 2. Rule No. 2 -- this is a really subtle rule, here. And this one I always correct in sentences. When people talk about meals -- breakfast, lunch, dinner, also brunch is a meal you might not know. It's in between breakfast and lunch. -- we don't use articles. So here's a correct sentence. "I don't eat breakfast." I'm talking in general there. "I don't eat breakfast." That's okay to say. However, if I'm being specific, "We didn't like the dinner", it's okay to use an article here. You need to. So what does the sentence actually mean? Imagine that we were out last night, and we had a meal. And now, we're talking about it. "Well, the place was nice, but I didn't like the dinner." Being specific about that experience we had. If I'm talking in general, "I don't like dinner", that would just mean all the time, okay? So it's a very big difference in meaning. Now, we'll look at rule No. 3 for jobs. Jobs take the indefinite article. That's a grammar word. And "indefinite article" means "a". We don't use "the".
A, AN, THE - Articles in English
http://www.engvid.com/ 'I saw A movie last night' or 'I saw THE movie last night'? A, AN, and THE are called articles and they can be very confusing. Learn exactly when and how to use articles in English in this important grammar lesson! http://www.engvid.com/a-an-the-articles-in-english/

When to use "some" and "any" | English grammar lesson
Learn when to use the words "some" and "any" in the English language with this grammar lesson. We use "some" in three specific situations: 1)In positive affirmative sentences with countable nouns in the plural and with uncountable nouns. Example "There are some apples" and "there is some rice." 2)In questions asking to receive something for example: "Can I have some apples?" or "Can I have some rice?" 3)We use "some" in questions offering something to someone like "Would you like some apples?" We use the word "any" in two situations: 1) In normal questions for countable plural nouns and uncountable nouns, like for example "Do you have any apples?" and "Do you have any rice?" 2) We can also use "any" in negative statements: "I don't want any apples" and "I don't have any rice." For more information about the differences between countable and uncountable nouns, see this lesson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFUztCn_ldU If you have any questions about this English grammar lesson or any question about the English language, then please ask in the comments.

5 Simple Exercises to Test the Age of Your Body
5 exercises that will help you test your body’s flexibility and guess your body age group. Prepare yourself for anything because the results may be unpleasant. Warm up before you try the exercises: you can either jump, do squats or leg swings. And now that you're ready, let's find out your true body age! TIMESTAMPS Shoulder Joint Flexibility 1:16 Spine Flexibility 3:08 Neck and Shoulder Girdle Flexibility 5:06 Hip Joint Flexibility 6:52 Knee Joint Flexibility 9:01 SUMMARY - The most effective exercises for this purpose are all the different kinds of stretches. So, be sure to do them at least once a day to increase your shoulder flexibility. You can also try a simple exercise that you can do pretty much anywhere, even during a little break at work! Raise your right arm up and bend it at the elbow so it would be behind your neck and head. Slide it a bit down your back. Now, reach behind you with your left arm, so that the back of your hand. - Let's try to do a small exercise that you probably did a lot during your PE classes at school: stand straight and keep your feet about shoulder width apart, then just lean forward (without bending your knees, though!) and try to touch the floor with your hands. Is it challenging for you? Let's find out what this says about your body. - To improve your condition, start with neck flexibility exercises. You can tuck your chin until you feel a stretch (keep in mind that it shouldn't be painful!). Another great option is taking your neck backwards, again, until you feel a stretch. (oh, that was good…) Repeat each of these exercises about five times. Now, what about shoulder girdle flexibility? For that, you can do some kneeling exercises. Begin with a kneeling position so that your feet are under your hips. Now lift your hips and raise your straight arms over your head at the same time. - If you want to improve your hip joint flexibility, remember to do the following exercises regularly. Just like with pretty much everything that is connected to the flexibility, stretches are the answer here. First of all, sit upright so that both of your legs are straight. Then bend your right leg, pull it into your chest and hug it tight until you feel a stretch. Again, if it's painful, it's not a good sign. Try to make it effective, but still safe. The second good exercise is a seated stretch. Sit with your knees bent out to the sides. Place the bottoms of your feet together and bring them as close to your groin as possible. Then just lean forward until you feel a stretch. - Knee joint flexibility can be improved, just don't be lazy and add a couple of exercises to your daily workouts. The simplest thing you can do is knee bends. Just lie comfortably and bend your knee as far as possible until you feel a stretch. Other powerful stretching exercises go like this: place your feet together and then slowly take your heel towards your bottom until you feel a stretch.

13 Uses of 'THE' - Articles (a, an, the) - Lesson 2 - English Grammar
In this lesson, you will learn the 13 USES of THE. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Welcome back. This is lesson two of my series on articles. If you haven’t seen the first lesson, you will find the link to the full playlist below. Alright, in this lesson, I will show you 13 uses of the definite article – ‘the’. As always, there’s a quiz at the end to test your understanding. Use number one is something we discussed in the previous lesson. This is also the most important use. Use 'the' to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, "Julie has a nine-year-old son. The boy wants to be an astronaut." Here, I first say 'a nine-year old son' because you don't know him yet. But once I have introduced him in the sentence, I then say 'The boy' because he is now known to you. Here's another example: "Can you answer the phone?" If I say this to you, then there's probably a phone ringing somewhere. So the phone is already known to you, and I say 'the phone'. And finally, "This is the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday." This example is a little different because if I stop with "This is the watch" - you will be confused because you don't know the watch. But then if I give you more information about the watch - it's the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday - so that way it becomes known to you. Let's now move on to use number two: use 'the' with unique things – that is, where there is only one of something. For example, we say ‘the sun’ (because there’s only one sun). Similarly, ‘the moon’, ‘the sky’, ‘the world’, ‘the universe’ and so on. Here are a couple of sentences: "Everyone knows that the sun rises in the east." and "Rahul has traveled all over the world." Some other things we consider unique are ‘the government’, 'the police', 'the Internet' and so on. As in these sentences: “The police are investigating a murder in our neighborhood.” and “Almost everybody uses the Internet today.” OK the next use is with some words referring to nature or the environment in a general way. These are words such as the countryside (which means rural or village areas), the town, the mountains, the weather etc. For example, "My son enjoys spending time in the countryside." It means my son likes to spend time relaxing in rural areas. Here are a couple more sentences: "We're going to take a trip to the mountains." and "I love the weather in Los Angeles." Use number four is talking about objects of common experience like in the expressions that you see on the screen. We say that these are objects of common experience because we all experience these in our lives. Have a look at this example: "I met an interesting man at the park yesterday." You may not know which park but it doesn't matter - the park is common experience. In the same way "Did you read the newspaper this morning?" I don't care which newspaper you read, I just want to know if read one today. Here's another example: "Darren likes to sing in the shower." We also use 'the ' with some types of media (including the word 'media' itself) and also forms of entertainment. For example, "I don't listen to the radio a lot these days." or “Pooja is at the movies with her friends." Note that 'at the movies' means at a movie theatre. But it's important to note that TV doesn't work this way. You can use 'the' with TV if you mean a television set. Like "Will you help me move the TV?" But if you mean television as a medium, then you say 'on TV' - as in "I saw a documentary on TV today." Not 'on the TV'. It's just a crazy rule in English. Let's move on to use number five now. Use 'the' with some time expressions. You see these on the screen - we always use 'the' in these expressions. For example, "Kids hate getting up early in the morning.", "A friend of mine got married the day before yesterday." and "We love to go swimming in the summer." We also say ‘the past’, ‘the present’ and ‘the future’ probably because there's only one past, present and future. Like in this sentence: "We must learn our lessons from the past and work towards the future." 'The' is also found in time expressions like ‘the eighteenth century’, 'the 1960s' (or simply 'the 60s') and so on. For example, "This house was built by my grandfather in the sixties." Now you have to be a little careful with time expressions because there are many that should be used without articles. You see some of these on the screen. We will discuss these more in the next lesson when we talk about where to use no article. The next use is superlative forms. These are expressions like ‘the best’, ‘the worst’, ‘the biggest’, ‘the smallest’ and so on.

8 Effective Breathing Exercises to Lose Belly Fat
How to get rid of belly fat? You’ve tried different exercises and diets but you still haven’t been able to achieve the flat stomach of your dreams. Today, we’re gonna look at some core-sculpting breathing exercises from the world of yoga. It’s called pranayama, and it’s a breathing technique that’s an integral part of yoga. You see, “prana” is the universal life force and energy that’s present in all living beings, and “ayama” means “to extend.” So, pranayama seeks to lengthen a person’s life force through breathing. Among its many health benefits, it works specifically for weight loss by reducing appetite, increasing metabolism, cleansing and balancing the digestive system, and burning fat. Most importantly, though, it reduces stress and prevents stress-related diseases. Pregnant women, those who suffer from respiratory problems, and anyone with a heart condition should not do pranayama exercises. If you’re new to yoga, it’s better to try these techniques with an instructor first. Build some experience, and then you can do them yourself at home safely. The exercises should be done on an empty stomach. For the best results, do them first thing in the morning. TIMESTAMPS: #1. Diaphragmatic breathing 2:00 #2. Stomach vacuum 2:38 #3. Skull shining breath 3:20 #4. Alternating nostril breathing 3:47 #5. Bellows breathing 4:35 #6. Humming bee breathing 5:02 #7. Deep breathing 5:39 #8. Abdominal lock 6:15 #flatstomach #pranayama #reducestress Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Diaphragmatic breathing is safe for beginners. It helps burn fat on top of the abdominal muscles. - Stomach vacuum aims to strengthen your deep inner abdominal muscles and burn visceral fat. That’s the fat under your muscles, surrounding your organs. - Skull shining breath not only burns belly fat but also gives you a nice boost of energy. - Bellows breathing. Take approximately one second for each inhale and exhale. The inhale and exhale should be fast and your stomach should jolt with each movement. If you incorporate alternating nostril breathing into your daily routine, do 5 to 10 cycles. - Humming bee breathing. For daily practice, do 5 to 10 cycles of this technique. - Deep breathing. You can start with 3 to 5 minutes of deep breathing if you’re a beginner. - You can do abdominal lock while standing or on your knees on a mat.

English Grammar - Prepositions to say where you live: AT, ON, IN
http://www.engvid.com/ Do you live ON Main St? AT Main St? IN Main St? Learn how to answer basic English questions about where you live with the right prepositions. I'll teach you how to use "in Los Angeles", "at Hill St", "on the 6th floor" and more. This is an important lesson for beginners and a great review for all levels. Take the quiz on this lesson here: http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-prepositions-at-on-in/ TRANSCRIPT: Hi, my name is Rebecca from www.engvid.com. Sometimes the most basic questions can cause us confusion. Why? Because when you have a question like: "Where do you live?" you need to know which preposition to use to answer the question correctly. So let's look at the board so that you can learn to answer this question correctly and confidently. So, suppose you need to give your address, the actual number where you live, the number of the house, then you say: "I live at 35 Hill St." Okay? -"Where do you live?" -"I live at 35 Hill St." So when you're giving the number with the street name, remember to say: "at". If you're just asked: "Which street do you live on?" Then you can say: "I live on Hill St." So when you're only giving the name of the street, use the preposition: "on". Now, just for you to know and remember: there are many words which basically represent the word: "street". You could have something like: "Street, Road, Avenue, Drive, Boulevard". Okay? "I live on Hill St.", "I live on San Fernando Rd.", "I live on Fairfax Ave.", "I live on Riverside Dr.", "I live on Hollywood Blvd." Okay? I don't, but hypothetically. All right? Next, if you're asked: "Where do you live?" as in the city or the country, then you have to use a different proposition. Then you have to use the preposition: "in". So: "Where do you live?" -"I live in Los Angeles.", "I live in California.", "I live in the U.S." Okay? So if you're mentioning the city, the state or the country then you want to make sure you use: "in". So: "I live at 35 Hill St. I live on Hill St. I live in Los Angeles." Okay? "At", "on", "in". Here are a few other points that sometimes you need to mention some more detailed information. There also, you need to know which preposition to use. So: "I live at the intersection of Pine and Maple Streets." So you have two streets, and you live close by so you can say: "I live at the intersection of Pine and Maple Streets." Okay? Or if somebody asks you: "Which floor do you live on?" You can say: "I live on the 15th floor.", "I live on the 6th floor." All right? And last, you might also sometimes need to give this information and you can say: "I live in an apartment." If you're in England, you might say: "I live in a flat." You could also say: "I live in a house." All right? So these are the three basic prepositions: "at", "on", and "in" that you need to answer the fundamental question: "Where do you live?" Now, to review that, next I'll be giving you a little exercise so you can practice what you've learned. All right, so we have two people here, Lucas and Sarah and we're going to ask them: "Where do you live?" And you help me to figure... fill in the blanks and to know how to answer the question. "So Lucas, where do you live?" So he says: "I live in Miami." Okay? Next one is: "the 6th floor" so what does he say? "I live on the 6th floor." "Where do you live?" "92 Bird St." So what does he say? "I live at 92 Bird St." -"Where do you live?" -"I live in Florida." "Kendall Dr.": -"Where do you live?" -"I live on Kendall Dr." "Where do you live?" "An apt": "I live in an apt." Okay? Now we know all about Lucas. Let's go to Sarah. "Sarah, where do you live?" "65 Oxford St." So she says: "I live at 65 Oxford St." "Where do you live?" "London": "I live in London." "Regent St.": "I live on Regent St." "A rented flat": "I live in a rented flat." "The 10th floor": "I live on the 10th floor." And: "Where do you live?" She wants to answer: "England" so she says: "I live in England." All right? The only way to learn these is to practice them a lot. Put down information like this and try to see if you can put in the right answers. All right? If you want some more practice, you can also go to our website: www.engvid.com and there you'll have a chance to do a quiz on this topic. So good luck with your English. Thanks for watching.

Using Have, Has & Had simplified – Basic English Grammar Lessons to learn Verbs & Tenses. Blog : http://www.learnex.in/learn-english-grammar-tenses-using-have-has-had Learning English grammar rules can be confusing for many English learning students , because of this difficulty, are too scared to learn English further. In this English grammar lesson, we will be learning a grammar rules which are simplified to help the learners of English to differentiate between have, has and had and correctly use them while speaking English. Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast Website : http://www.letstalkpodcast.com The verb ‘to have’ is an irregular verb. It means that the ending changes dramatically every time there is a change in tense. 'To have' can be used as a main verb or a helping verb. We use this as a main verb when we are talking about a possession, feeling or habit. For example: Main verb Possession: I have a car Feeling: I have a feeling that Sheldon and Amy will get married. Habit: I have a habit of biting my nails when I am stressed. I have breakfast everyday. Helping Verb: When we use two verbs to bring an effect or make a grammatically correct, the first verb becomes the helping verb. For example: I have been in this room. Things to note are: 1. The sentence will be in perfect tense. That means an action has started earlier and was continued over and over again for a period of time. I have been thinking... I have been to the US last year 2. The second verb in the sentence will be in past participle form. Past participle is a form of action verb which is completed Been Done Seen We use the verb 'To have' with pronouns. I, we, they- have. But when we talk about second person or proper noun then we use has She, He, it or John(proper noun) Anytime time, we are talking about past tense, the verb "have' will change into had I/She/we/they/it had I had been there she had washed my clothes

TIMESTAMPS: Correct footwear and diet 0:38 Weight and diet 1:51 Exercise 2:29 Massage techniques 3:43 Damage control 4:40 Bonus: Foot hygiene 5:52 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Your toes are meant to lie flat and feel comfortable inside a shoe without getting pressed against one another. They should have room to move! - Your diet is also important. If you are used to eating very fatty foods or opting for whatever happens to be in the fridge, this is a good time to start making smarter dietary choices. - When it comes to bunions, though, if you spend a lot of time not moving your feet, you risk the muscles becoming tight, the fascia in your feet getting “glued together,” and losing strength in your feet. - Massage will help you loosen up muscles in your feet and keep your toes facing the right way. When you put your foot into a tight shoe, you are encouraging your toes to be cramped. - A bunion pad will cushion the area where the bunion hurts and will make it easier to wear shoes. - A bunion sleeve covers a larger area of your foot than a bunion pad, and it might encase your whole foot arch. - Crush some ice, wrap it in a towel, and put it against your bunion to diminish the pain. It will also work as an anti-inflammatory. - If your bunions are already quite large, they might chafe against your shoe and cause your skin to wear away in that area. Regular foot soaks will help relieve tiredness, reduce sweat, and eradicate harmful bacteria.

10 Easy Ways to Boost Testosterone Naturally
How to boost testosterone naturally? There are many misconceptions when it comes to testosterone. Some people connect it with aggressive behavior; some believe that the more testosterone a man has, the more “macho” he is. In any case, there are men who want to have as much testosterone in their system as possible. Luckily, it's not that difficult. TIMESTAMPS: Try weight lifting and exercising 1:25 Keep stress and cortisol levels to a minimum 2:27 Follow a balanced diet rich in proteins, carbs, and fat 3:05 Get enough sunlight or take a vitamin D supplement 3:59 Get enough restful sleep 4:47 Take mineral and vitamin supplements 5:33 Take natural testosterone boosters 6:16 Lead a healthy lifestyle, and avoid estrogen-like compounds 6:53 Review your medications 7:36 Lose weight 8:07 #hightestosterone #hormones #lowtestosterone Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - As you know, exercising regularly can help you avoid many diseases connected with a sedentary lifestyle. Surprisingly, it will also boost testosterone levels! - The level of testosterone in your body depends on how stressed you are. Here is the connection: if you're suffering from long-term stress, the level of cortisol (a stress hormone) goes up. The higher the level of cortisol, the lower the level of testosterone. - According to one famous saying, you are what you eat. Interestingly, your testosterone level also depends on what you eat. Both severe dieting and overeating can disrupt testosterone production. - The importance of vitamin D has come to light in recent years. It’s no wonder, as it has a lot of advantages and health benefits. For example, it works as a natural booster of testosterone. - Getting the proper amount of high-quality sleep is a necessary condition for increasing testosterone levels. Sure, everybody has their own perfect sleep duration. But a 2011 study into the effect that one week of sleep restriction had on the testosterone levels of healthy young men showed interesting results. - Certain vitamins and supplements can also boost the production of testosterone. For example, magnesium supplements will restore the levels of testosterone if the cause of the drop is a deficiency of this mineral. - There are also herbs and spices that can effectively boost your testosterone level. The best ones are ashwagandha and ginger. - Testosterone levels can be negatively affected by estrogen-like chemicals. If you’re overexposed to parabens, BPA, and some chemicals often found in plastic, try to reduce this exposure to a minimum. - When your doctor prescribes medicine, you can be sure that it’ll help you deal with a particular health condition. Unfortunately, medications are a pretty common reason for low testosterone levels. - According to several studies, there's a connection between how much a man weighs and his testosterone levels. Men who are a bit on the heavy side have less testosterone than those whose weight is within the norms.

Exercises with resistance bands are very simple, they can help you achieve great results and they can also be done anywhere.

From here, bend your knees as if sitting, and slightly lower your upper body. - #4. Take a big step forward with your right leg. If you’re exercising with a resistance band, stand on it with the leg you put forward, and hold the ends. - #5. Get into a plank position. If you’re using the band, grab the ends of it with your hands, and put your right leg in between it. - #6. Leave the band in the same position if you’re using it, and stand on all fours.

Put your resistance band on your wrists, lift your arms, and bend them a little. Now push your arms out to the sides, and return them back to the initial position. - #12. Put your left arm in front of your chest and your right one a bit lower. Hold your resistance band with your right hand, and fix it next to your left wrist. - #13. Put your hands behind your back, holding the resistance band. From this position, pull the band up with your right hand. Hold it like that for about 2 seconds, and then lower it back down.

How to Become Fluent in English: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmwr9polMHwsI6vWZkm3W_VE7cWtYVjix In this lesson, you will learn the rules for using: - period/full stop (.) - exclamation mark (!) - question mark (?) - comma (,) - semicolon (;) - colon (:) - apostrophe (') Partial transcript: Hello, and welcome back. In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the rules for using the seven most important punctuation marks, so that you can write correct English without making mistakes. There are exercises within the lesson to help you practice, and as always there is a final quiz at the end of the video. So, if you’re ready, let’s begin. We’re going to start with terminal punctuation. ‘Terminal’ means the end, so terminal punctuation marks are what we use to end a sentence. There are three of these: the period or the full stop, the exclamation mark, and the question mark. Let’s look at the period first. This mark is called the period in American English (AmE means American English), and it’s called the full stop in British English. It is used to mark the end of declarative and imperative sentences. I’ll explain. Here are some examples: “I teach English.” “We had pizza for dinner last night.” “If it rains tomorrow, I’ll bring my umbrella.” These sentences are called declarative sentences because they declare something; they give us some information. And at the end of each sentence, you see a period or full stop. Imperative sentences are commands or requests: “Please don’t feed the animals.” You might see this on a sign in a zoo. “Let me know what time your flight arrives.” “If it rains tomorrow, bring your umbrella.” Let’s now turn to the exclamation mark. It is used to convey strong emotion or feeling. Have a look at these two sentences: Both of them mean the same thing. The first sentence, which ends in a period, has no special feeling or emotion; it’s like saying “I’m really excited about my new job.” Doesn’t sound like I’m very excited, does it? That’s why we use the exclamation mark: “I’m really excited about my new job!” – it tells our reader to read the sentence with emotion – in this sentence, the emotion is excitement. This next sentence: “If you come to work late tomorrow, you’re fired!” Imagine a manger saying this to an employee. So, this expresses anger. In the same way, you can show many other feelings including surprise, joy, fear etc. using the exclamation mark. Now, both of these sentences are declarative, but you can also use the exclamation mark in an imperative sentence like this one: “Johnny, don’t play with your food!” You can imagine a mother saying that angrily to her son. So, it’s a strong or strict command. Another place where we use the exclamation mark is after interjections. Here are a couple of sentences: “Ouch! You just stepped on my foot!” “Wow! What a beautiful house!” Interjections are words like “ouch” and “wow” which are used to express feelings. So, remember: if you want to convey strong emotion in a sentence, put an exclamation mark at the end of it. If there’s no special feeling, just end the sentence with a period. OK, let’s turn now to the third terminal punctuation symbol: the question mark. It is used to mark the end of a question. So, it’s very straightforward: if a sentence is a question, then put a question mark at the end of it. Here are some examples: “What do you do?” “Are we allowed to feed the animals?” “If it rains tomorrow, should I bring my umbrella?” “Are you excited about your new job?” “Who lives in that house?” So, the rule is: if a sentence is a question, it must end with a question mark. Alright, let’s do a small exercise now. There are four sentences on the screen. I want you to add periods or full stops, exclamation marks and question marks where necessary. Stop the video, think about your answers, then play the video and check. OK, here are the answers. If you want, stop the video again, check your answers, then play the video and continue. Before we move on to the next topic, a quick note on spacing. Notice that there is no space between the last letter of a sentence and the terminal punctuation mark. If you put a space there, it’s wrong. But, when you begin a new sentence, you should leave a space after the terminal mark, and you should start the new sentence with a capital letter.

Transcript: Hi and welcome to this series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and in this first lesson I'm going to give you a quick Introduction to the eight parts of speech. In the following lessons we'll learn more in detail about each part of speech. Before we start just remember if you have any questions at all you just have to let me know in the comments section below and I will talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a part of speech? Well a part of speech is just the name given to a word based on the job that it does in a sentence. Think of parts of speech as being kind of like job titles Just like a person can be a teacher or a doctor or a lawyer - a word can be a verb, an adjective, a noun etc depending on the job that it does in a sentence And these can be really useful to learn because when you're studying grammar you will come across terms like these, you will come across terms like nouns, verbs and adjectives, and if you know what they mean it can help you to speed up your study of grammar. Alright so how many parts of speech are there? There are eight parts of speech and we start by talking about the verb. We start with the verb because verbs are probably the most important words in the English language, and that is for two reasons: first every sentence in English must have a verb You cannot have sentences without verbs in English, and the second reason is that only verbs have tenses. I'm sure you know about past tense, present tense and future tense That's how we talk about different times and to do that we change the forms of verbs. So verbs are really important. So what does a verb do? Well a verb is a word that shows an action or a state - state means a situation. For example in the sentence Dylan plays tennis three times a week. In the sentence the verb is play because that's the action, and we're saying plays because for he,she and it we say plays - we add the 's' to the verb in the present tense, so "Dylan plays." In this next sentence "I am a teacher" - can you tell me which is the verb? The verb is 'am; - that's basically just the verb to be - but we say I am, you are, he is etc. so "I am a teacher" Now I want you to notice a very important difference between these two sentences. Notice that in the first sentence we are talking about a physical action because playing is something that we do physically. But in the second sentence we are not talking about any physical action - we're just saying "I am a teacher." We call that a state, that means a situation. So verbs can show actions or they can show states or situations. Those are the two types of verbs OK the next part of speech is the noun. A noun is the name given to a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example here's a sentence with a lot of nouns - "Rosie went to Malta on vacation with her family last year." Can you identify all the nouns in the sentence? Well the first noun is Rosie - it's the name of a person. The second noun is Malta Malta is the name of a place. It's actually a beautiful small little island country in Europe. Malta is a place. The next noun is vacation. Vacation is the name given to a type of trip the people take, and the noun after that is family What's a family? A family is a group of people who are related - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters etc. and the last noun in the sentence is year - a year is just 365 days or the time that it takes the earth to go around the Sun. Now of course nouns can also be animals like dogs or cats or a noun could be a thing like watch, pen, t-shirt etc. Or it could be a feeling such as love or anger Those are all nouns. What's a pronoun then? A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun - replaces means it takes the place of a noun. But you might ask - why should a pronoun do that? Well take a look at this sentence -

Plus, this exercise doesn't strain your neck and lower back. - #2. Floating knee tucks work your upper and lower abs to define and sculpt them. This exercise also makes your whole core stronger. It develops overall mobility and muscle endurance. - #3. Roll-up lifts are perfect for your abdominal muscles. Besides, they help make your core stronger and increase your flexibility. - #4. Not only does this exercise sculpt your abs, you’ll also see a more defined tush! - #5. This exercise works your upper and lower abdominal muscles as well as your obliques. And that’s a great muscle group to target if you’re dealing with that all-so annoying muffin top. Bicycle crunches also train your quads, hamstrings, hips, and chest muscles. - #6. Flutter kicks work magic on your lower abs and obliques. You also train your hip flexors and thigh muscles. Just be careful, and don’t do the fluttering motion too fast. - #7. Oblique twist crunches are perfect for strengthening and defining the abs and waist. The exercise involves both the internal and external obliques, which means that not only your abs but also your core becomes stronger. As a result, it can help protect your spine and back muscles from injuries. - #8. Twisting side plank is an effective way to tone your waist. And that’s because it targets the abs and obliques. It also strengthens the muscles of your core overall.

12 Strange US Geography Facts No One Told You About
The US enjoys some very impressive statistics. 50 states. 325.7 million people. 14,146 McDonald's restaurants. Oh, yes, and some truly wacky geography facts! Get ready because some of these geographic anomalies can be mind-boggling. Do you know, for example, which state has the longest coastline? Top contenders could be Texas, Florida, and California. But it’s Alaska! The Alaskan coastline covers 6,640 miles and is actually longer than the coastline for the rest of the states combined! So if you love the cold sea and frozen beaches, Alaska is the place to be! Watch the video to learn which site to visit if you want to be in 4 places at once, how Americans can be trapped in Canada, and how everyone on Earth could fit into the state of Texas. TIMESTAMPS: Buildings in New York have their own ZIP codes 1:03 Alaska is everywhere 1:39 You can walk from the US to Russia 2:24 Canada in California 3:22 The longest river in the US 3:55 The shortest river in the world 4:47 The longest coastline 5:23 The tallest mountain in the world 5:56 Point Roberts — America or Canada? 6:49 Four Corners — 4 states 7:41 Border states 8:26 Texas is bigger than you can imagine 9:16 #geographyfacts #factsaboutamerica#usafacts Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Manhattan is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. It is so unbelievably crowded that there are over 200 ZIP codes in Manhattan alone! And there are over 40 buildings that are large enough to have their own ZIP codes. - Alaska is pretty close to Russia. The state stretches so far west that it reaches into the eastern hemisphere. So if you want to experience the northern, western, and eastern hemispheres, simply head to Alaska! - During the winter, the small area between Alaska and Russia freezes over. In the middle of the Bering Strait are 2 islands: Big Diomede is part of Russian territory, and Little Diomede is part of Alaskan territory. - The population of Canada is 36.7 million, but California still houses more people than the entire country of Canada. - The Mississippi River spans 2,348 miles. That’s like the distance from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Boston, Massachusetts. - The US can boast about housing the fourth largest river in the world, but it also houses the smallest. The Roe River is located in Montana, and it’s just 201 ft long. - Technically, the tallest mountain is part of the United States. Mauna Kea in Hawaii is an enormous mountain that’s about 33,500 ft tall. - How can you be in 4 places at once? Just head over to Four Corners, a rare area in America where 4 states meet. Southeast Utah, Northeast Arizona, Southwest Colorado, and Northwest New Mexico intersect in a right angle. - 2 states in the US don’t share borders with any other US states. Do you know which ones? If you thought of Hawaii and Alaska, you’re right! - In New York City, the city stretches upward to make room for the 8.6 million inhabitants. If the world’s population lived in such a condensed manner, they would only cover 250,404 square miles.
