here are two words that sound the samebut are spelled differently the words are wreak and reek the firstspelling of wreak means to inflict or cause damage and harm on a large scaleor over a large area to cause damage and commotion is to wreak you wreak havocyou wreak chaos the hurricane is expected to wreak havoc tomorrow toexact revenge by inflicting injury or harm is to wreak you wreak your revengeon someone the other spelling of reek describes a terrible smell somethingthat has a bad odor and smells unpleasant can be described as reekingthe reek is the terrible smell the reek from inside the fridge made me feel sickwe can also use reek to suggest something unpleasant or undesirable thiswhole deal reeks, something is not right it’s time to wreak some chaos on theinternet now but I promise what you are about to see will not reektoo much because it’s Sunday afternoon it’s just after 2 o’clock here in the UKand this is live English doo-doo-doo-doo it is a hot one today itis so hot here in the UK there it is a live picture looking out over thelandscape and you can see it is a glorious day today it is absolutelyboiling hot needless to say the hay fever season is well and truly under wayas you can see a lot of the grass looks very dry in fact many of the farmers inthis area have been cutting their grass which has made my hay fever become quitequite unbearable so as you can imagine I have been sneezing a lot today buthopefully it won’t interfere too much with today’s live stream hi everybodythis is mr.

Steve is doing the dusting hmm Thank You sweetness for your yourguests there yes mr.
Steve is going to be doing something for us live on cameraand also he will be talking about expressions to do with football as wellso all of that coming up later on some new words were added last week to theOxford English Dictionary and I thought it would be interesting to have a lookat some of the words that have been added and here is one of them here is aninteresting word can you see it and this is one of the latest additions to theOxford English Dictionary impostor syndromecan you see the word on the screen impostor syndromethe meaning of this is the persistent inability to believe that one’s successis deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one’s ownefforts or skills so this actually comes from the earlier word imposterphenomenon so if you have success and if you have maybe success in business orexcess in your job or success in your lifeperhaps you feel as if you don’t deserve it so we call that impostor syndrome itis called impostor syndrome so if you don’t accept that your success isdeserved or has been legitimately achieved we can say that you aresuffering from impostor syndrome very interesting phrase that and that hasjust been added to the Oxford English Dictionary here’s another one now thisis a this is a very long word look at that look at that that might be one ofthe longest words I’ve ever featured on my live stream so there it is can yousee it micro aggression what a great word micro aggression and the meaning ofmicro aggression a statement action or incident regarded as an instance ofindirect subtle or an intentional discrimination or prejudice againstmembers of a marginalized group such as a racial minority also as a mass Niallone we can also use it as a mass noun so this behavior is generally frowned uponso this behavior can be generally frownedporns and it is micro aggression some people say that people have become verysensitive nowadays it would appear that people are so sensitive it’s almost asif you can’t say anything nowadays without someone getting really reallyupset he’s another one oh I like this one this is one that I’m sure many ofyou are familiar with spoiler alert I’m sure if you are a fan of movies orTV shows you might find that this particular word is one you might use ifsomeone is going to tell you what happens in the movie or the TV show sohere it is spoiler alert so maybe referring to a recent review oran online discussion of a film or television series and intervention usedto warn readers or viewers that an important detail of the story is aboutto be divulged or alluded to or given away a full warning of a plot spoilerfrequently used in a humorous or ironic way especially in wider use so if I wereto talk about the next episode of Game of Thrones I might say I’m going to warnyou that there are some spoilers this is a spoiler alert spoiler alert so if youare about to give the plot or the story of something that is about to be shownon television or maybe a movie that people are going to see you can sayspoiler alert look out I’m going to give away some of the detailI’m going to tell you what happens in the TV program or in the movie so thisis a spoiler alert so I hope you enjoyed that so some new words added to theoxford english dictionary talking of words we have a lot of words on the livechat oh I see Huang no juin I get the feeling that youare a fan of football I think so mr.
Duncan how do you speak so clear I don’tknow I think it’s just because that’s the way I speak English Thank YouPraveen for that Matt Boone is here mr.
Duncan do you mind making funny sounds Iwould like to see how the livestream subtitles deal with thatperhaps I could I could sing a song dooby dooby dooby dooby doo doo doo doobee doo bee doo doo doo doo there you go that was just for Matt I hope youenjoyed that Oh Ahmed says I hope you are well yes I’m okay not too bad thankyou apparently the subtitles only work on Android devices and HTML 4 so if youare watching on your PC or on an Android device the subtitles will work but ifyou are watching on an Apple phone or an Apple computer then the subtitles willnot work apparently that’s what someone at YouTube told me last week hello fromRussia mr.
Duncan I am enjoying watching your lesson thank you very muchalex says belonging or oh I see yes I see what you’ve done therethe absence of teeth a debt a dent a tattoo ‘this identity toothlessi can’t wait to see what that looks like on the subtitlessohe wang says yes lots of footballs there so is that the number of goalsthat have been scored I wonder hello Lena says Belarusian andhello to Belarus here as well mr.
Steve will be here in a moment are you excitedI I hope so because mr.
Steve is going to be doing something very very excitingI can hardly wait if you want to improve your speaking you have to concentrate onit maybe you can listen to your own voice so if you want to improve yourEnglish maybe you can listen to your own voice perhaps you can listen to the wayyou sound perhaps you can record your voice on your mobile phone and thenlisten to it and if you don’t like the sound of your own voiceyou can try and change it but of course if you want to change the way you speakyou have to do it over time you can’t rush it okay so don’t try to do it tooquickly or else you might have problems hello mr.
Duncan I am listening to youwhilst I’m feeding the dogs can I say a big bow-wow to you thank you very much we have someone watching in Venezuelahello from the USA I am a Venezuelan guy learning this fantastic language thankyou very much honk fan says I love you thank you very much for that bluethunder says please read my comment mr.

Steve watching the football no he isn’t heisn’t because he doesn’t follow football just like me mr.
Duncan what is thestrange sound is there a strange sound is that I’m not sure is there a strangesound on my livestream maybe there’s a strange sound at yourend hello sir how is your day going my day is going ok but I’m having to stayin the house because of my terrible terrible hay fever for those who’ve justjoined me you can now watch the livestreamwith subtitles yes there are live subtitles on this live stream if you arewatching live at the moment and if you are watching on an Android device or ona PC you can have live subtitles it’s incredible isn’t that lovely oh I seemr.
steve is making a strange sound yes he isI think mr.
steve is doing some singing upstairs I think maybe that’s what youcan hear I think it’s mr.
Steve I hope he realizes that he should be on now oneof the problems with mr.
Steve is he doesn’t have a watch he doesn’t he neverwears a watch and because of that he always loses track of timeso mr.
Steve often loses track of time because he doesn’t wear a watch whatabout you do you wear a watch do you have a watch on your wrist mr.
Stevewill be here in a moment doing something very interesting Bert first of all we’regoing to have a look at one of my full English lessons one of my full Englishlessons this is an excerpt from one of my full English lessonswhere I talk all about household chores then after that we are going to join mr.
Steve who will have something very special to show us you can you see what I’m doing hereI’m hanging out some washing this is one of my weekly chores that I have to do itmust be done regularly to be honest I do not enjoy doing chores they are such achore we often use the word chore to describe an unpleasant or laborious tasksomething we despise or dislike doing can be described as a chore there aremany different types of chore that must be done washing the dishes I hate havingto wash the dishes mowing the lawn I hate having to mow the lawn putting outthe rubbish I hate having to put out the rubbish vacuuming the carpet I hate having tovacuum the carpet but for me the worst chore of all has to be ironing myclothes I cannot begin to tell you just how much I despise ironing especiallywhen there are so many clothes that need ironing yes I’m pretty sure that myleast favorite chore has got to be doing the ironing do you enjoy doing choreswhich chores do you hate doing the most so there it is a little teaser becausemr.
Steve is now on his way doo-doo-doo apparently we have livesubtitles now so if you want to click on the subtitle button there are livesubtitles who remembers last Wednesday do you remember a conversation that wehad last Wednesday mr.
Steve and myself just my standard white shirts for workyou know where were the tie I never ironed them because I bind non ironshirts and they’re very good as long as you take them straight out of thewashing machine don’t spin them too much and put them on a hanger put them on aclothes hanger hang them up all the creases will be gone and I mean theydon’t look at quite as good as a fully ironed shirt but they’re good enough forwork as you know I hate ironing you’ve never owned anything well that yeah yesI’ve dwell as I just explained I hate ironing that’s why I don’tthere’s a subject to talk about on Sunday what do you I am what do people Iam oh wow I’m sure people will be queuing I hope YouTube has enoughbandwidth okay and I just can I just warned the internet they think that thewires the cables on the internet might melt on Sunday because of all the peopletrying to watch let’s talk about what do you normally I in thank you iron shirtsto iron underwear not iron jeans so there it was last Wednesday and now herehe is live doing the thing that he promised to talk about and actually giveus a demonstration of its mr.
Steve doing the ironing live hello mr.
Steveoh hello thing mr.
Duncan oh you interrupted me I’m extremely busytoday you know I can’t afford to spend toomuch time live with you today on air because I’ve got so many chores to doinside and also outside I’ve got all the gardening to do so if you don’t mindthen I can do the live lesson with you today but I’m just gonna have to carryon doing my jobs particularly the ironing so is that all right mr.
Duncanyou don’t mind do you I don’t mind because last week youmentioned this didn’t you you said wouldn’t it be a good idea to talk aboutironing we can ask people if they iron their clothes and I was a little bitsarcastic about it but mr.
Steve insisted he said look I want to do it Iwant to do the ironing live on YouTube I think this is the way forward forYouTube it’s more about the fact that I just haven’t got time to appear today soI’m just really doing this at the same time so we’re gonna be teaching Englishand at the same time I’m going to be doing some ironing so I’ve got all mywords prepared here that the phrase is the idioms so we can still do those butI’ll just have to carry on if you don’t mind and I hope everybody at homedoesn’t mind either so what what are you ironing at themoment that’s what I’m buying at Mike one of my tops from Pedram last week whowas mentioning my tops my polo shirts so I’ve got one on and that one is nowready I can wear that one so that’s done you got very excited last week becausePedro was saying xed Pedro was saying some very nice things about your clotheshe was I don’t have Pedro’s on today but I don’t normally do socks by the wayit’s a bit of a waste of time doing socksI think Pedro’s watching the football he probably is but to anybody else who isinterested in ironing so this obviously this is an esteem honorso I can give a little squirt of steam because the designing process goextremely well that is a steam iron it’s a steam iron yes mr.
Duncan so what doyou mean talking about today I’d have to shout let’s know you to shout Steve whathave you been talking about today there mr.
Duncan today we’ve beentalking about the weather because it’s a beautiful hot day it certainly is not aday for being inside the house because it’s so hot it’s beautiful let’s have alittle look outside because there you can see a live view outside at themoment it’s a absolute beautiful day now that is a live view you can see that theSun is out and everything is very very hot and I think Steve wishes that he wasoutside at the moment in the garden don’t you oh yes but the problem mr.
Duncan is that if we go outside you will suffer from your hay fever this is trueof course we can’t have that so that’s why we’re staying indoors and it givesme this opportunity to get all my ironing done at the same time which isgreat I’ve got all these phrases here do you know what I’m gonna talk about todaymr.
