31 Days of Learning English – DAY 19 – improve your English – HANDWRITING – 19th October – Saturday


oh my goodness here we go again yes it
is yet another day another time another moment here on YouTube live
welcome to day 19
of 31 days of English during October 2019 oh hello there hi
everybody this is mr. Duncan in England how are you today
are you okay I hope so are you happy I really hope you are happy today I am
happy even though I got a little bit confused today I got a little bit
confused because I thought I was starting at 2 o’clock but of course I’m
not starting it 2 o’clock and there is one reason why I am not starting it 2
o’clock UK time today do you know why well I will tell you because it’s super
Saturday so it isn’t just Saturday it isn’t no
it’s super Saturday mr. Duncan what are you talking about you idiot
I am talking about one thing in particular because today is Super
Saturday and it has quite a lot to do with this yes I’m sorry I’m really sorry
that I have to mention this so early in the livestream but today it is the day
when the final decision is made again yes again we are trying to sort this
mess out so today in London all those lovely members of parliament are meeting
together they are going to decide whether or not this happens now I know
it’s boring for those who aren’t in this country by the way I’m in the United
Kingdom at the moment we are apart we are part of Europe but soon if this
happens we won’t be part of Europe so that is what is happening here in the UK
today and normally Parliament does not get
together they don’t normally meet they don’t normally get together to make
decisions on Saturday however they are today they are all together to try and
sort this out so there is a big vote taking place today and this apparently
is going to be one of the biggest votes ever taken ever ever and it concerns
this topic I’m not going to say the name it’s a little bit like Harry Potter I’m
not going to say the name of this this is the thing whose name must never be
mentioned ever again so that’s what’s happening and apparently everyone is
calling it Super Saturday I don’t know what is super about Saturday especially
when the future of this country is going to be decided so is it really Super
Saturday I’m not sure I think there might be a little bit of hyperbole going
on there ooh now that is a word that I mentioned during the week don’t forget
I’m with you every single day during October 31 days of live English to
celebrate my 13th year I have been doing this for 13 years and over those 13
years so many people have started copying and doing the same thing as me
although I was the original one I am the first-ever English English
teacher on YouTube did you know that I bet you didn’t but now you do so here we
go then Saturday it is not just Saturday it is it’s Super Saturday okay okay that’s it enough enough of
that enough Super Saturday no more Super Saturday can everybody stop saying Super
Saturday however the weekend is here are you
having a good weekend wow look outside everything is looking good
outside the window isn’t that a nice view so there it is right now the view
out of the window looking towards a large town called Shrewsbury so the
thing you can see in the distance is actually a large town you can see some
of the church spires and also lots of other buildings as well so looking into
the distance in the distance you can see a large town called Shrewsbury that is
about 15 yes maybe about 15 miles away from where I am standing right now so
there it is the view out the window and I suppose we should take a look at that
as well so that is the view we opened with today you can see everything is
looking rather old terminal yes without a doubt I am pretty sure that autumn is
on the way in fact I think it has arrived already because there are a lot
of leaves on the ground today we are talking about handwriting and I’m going
to show you some of my handwriting also I am going to take you into my mind I am
going to reveal some of the things that go on in my mind when I’m not doing this
are you ready to do that are you feeling brave enough to take a trip into this
brain so today we are talking about handwriting I am going to show you some
of my hand right and also some of mr. Steeves handwriting
now some people say that my handwriting is terrible so if your handwriting is
terrible like mine do people ever complain about
it do they do you still use a pen because it would appear nowadays many
people type and print things they don’t write with their hand anymore no one
writes letters we talked about this last week no one writes letters anymore who
writes letters when was the last time you sat down at a table and you wrote a
letter to someone dear Marjorie it has been two weeks since I
last wrote you so today we’re talking about handwriting but we are definitely
not talking about this between you and me I have had enough of this please no
more hopefully by the end of today there will be no more of this
who knows let’s have a look at the live chat oh hello Giovanni hello – Giovanni
Oh Giovanni says when I was younger so much
younger than today I never needed anybody’s help in any way that sounds
like a song I think it is guess what you are first on today’s live chat I thought I was on at 2:00 p.m. but
apparently on Saturday I am on it 12:00 midday and I forgot I forgot I was
actually in bed one hour ago I was actually lying in bed and Here I am now
talking to the world very strange well done Giovanni you are here first on
today’s live stream also Belarus ear is here and a Kobe eka ter Ekaterina hello
I like your name by the way I have a feeling there won’t be many people
watching today because of sport yes rugby is taking place in Japan at the
moment I believe it is the quarter-final of the Rugby World Cup Wow
look at me I almost look as if I know what I’m talking about
and I believe England are playing I can’t remember who they’re playing is it
Canada I want to say Canada that doesn’t sound right do Canadians play rugby is
it is it really England against Canada that doesn’t sound right
I’m sure you will tell me who England is playing in the Rugby World Cup
quarter-final in Japan so that’s the reason why I would imagine about 50% of
my viewers are not here because they are watching the rugby on the television
Rolfie hello Ralphy the Dominican Republic is
live with mr. Duncan I am very pleased to hear it
Meeker is here Oh Meeker in Japan I see are you watching the rugby on the
television as well at the same time at the same time is watching me mmm maybe
maybe not also curry watching in France a big
bonjour to you sir junior says hello mr. Duncan I can’t wait for your lessons
every day yes I am here every day during October and this is my 19th day without
a break so I have been doing this for 19 days how do I feel do I feel tired do I
feel exhausted do I feel as if I have burnt out no I feel great every day I
feel so excited except today because I was in bed one hour ago
I was lying in bed because I forgot that I was on it midday because Saturday I’m
always on earlier because normally we go into town to have a nice meal yes it is
Super Saturday I’ve already explained why I’m not going to explain it again
yes Crowl that is true this subject here we go again this is episode 4 of this
today they are voting again I think it’s the fourth time or maybe the fifth time
that they’re voting on this bloody thing Cory is here hello Cory I wish you the
best my dear Rakesh is here hello mr. Duncan have a lovely day how
is it going your livestream thanks a lot for for lots of this live yes I am very
live at the moment at 18 minutes past midday so Saturday I am normally here at
midday much earlier than during the week oh and also tomorrow I’m here as well so
you can actually catch me tomorrow as well and for those who want to catch
me well if you want to be notified of when I’m on you can always like and
subscribe can you see it there so you can like and you can subscribe
and then you will never miss another one of my live streams ever again
so go on subscribe to me and like and then I might come back tomorrow and do
this again does that sound like a good idea I think so hello to Belarus er one
of our four moderators I haven’t seen Pedro or Luis today I haven’t seen them
maybe they are watching the rugby Kathy hello Cathy cat and can I say thank you
once again for your lovely message and also your donation on the live chat
during the week thank you very much that was very kind of you
also Rakesh says mr. Duncan your video is beneficial so if something is
beneficial it means it offers help it will help in some way it will give you
help so it is beneficial to you or for you pal Mira these days handwriting ro
handwriting because that’s what we’re talking about today we are talking about
handwriting so pal Mira says these days handwriting has gone to the dogs I love
that expression so if something goes to the dogs it means it has been thrown out
it is no longer done it has gone to the dogs
something is lying in ruins it has been destroyed it no longer is
the thing it used to be it has gone to the dogs so I suppose it would be fair
to say that people nowadays do not tend to write with their hand especially in
the day in the age of computers because we have computers we can type we can
print we can email we can send text messages so maybe when we send a text
that is almost like writing by hand almost not quite
Tomic oh hello Tomic I haven’t seen you for a very long time
hello Tomic hi mr. Duncan I have been your follower since October 2010 so
you’ve been with me for nine years you were not only the first teacher on
YouTube in my opinion you set the bar so high for the other teachers this is true
I was actually looking at some other videos yesterday on YouTube and I
noticed that there is a strange thing happening on YouTube with other teachers
where they seem to just repeat the same lessons over and over again so they are
making new lessons but they seem to be repeating the subjects all the time
not here I always try to come up with something new and original every time
like now because I’m live no one else nobody else on YouTube is doing live
English lessons every day because it’s too difficult but not for me Luis mr.
Duncan YouTube has become crazy why your live streams was announced in two hours
I thought it could be a mistake no it was the 19th of October that is why I’m
late don’t worry it is actually
i falled can you believe it I actually forgot that I was on early today
so that’s what happened it’s my fault I’m sorry I was actually in bed at
around 11 o’clock I was still in bed I was having a little bit of a rest today
and then I realized that I’m actually on earlier on Saturday so that’s the reason
why earlier my livestream was supposed to be on it 2 o’clock but it isn’t not
on Saturday it is always earlier on Saturday so I do apologize once again
for causing confusion hi mr. Duncan and everyone else in the
chat now root oh hello Naruto it’s nice to see you here again today I haven’t
seen you for a long time salad says a big hello to you yes it is
the weekend it’s Saturday and yes we are here today thanks a lot once again to
Kathy for your donation by the way if you want to make a donation through
PayPal you can as well everything I do on YouTube is free however sometimes I
have to support myself I have to pay my bills especially doing this making these
live lessons making my video lessons doing this for free for 13 years it
costs a lot of money to do this you might not realize it but there is a lot
of expense involved in doing this so if you want to make a donation you
are more than welcome to to help my work continue forever and ever
Christine says I love writing letters even if that is unusual well I suppose
it’s unusual for for young people so maybe if you are young
perhaps you never pick up a pen you never even in school so many schools now
will actually give their students iPads or tablet devices so even in schools
many students now don’t use pen and paper quite often they will use a tablet
device such as an iPad so yes it would appear that writing is slowly becoming a
thing of the past hello also to chalene hello Charlene or
cherlene apparently I don’t know what cherlene said I wonder what cherlene
said I’m curious what’s surely and said oh thanks mister don’t come for your
good English I think that’s okay I think that’s acceptable I don’t think
that’s anything bad really I’m glad that you like my lessons hello pal Meera
yes pencils and pens are no longer used most people like to type on their
computer or on their mobile device Emma I usually make my everyday notes with
handwriting that is something we are going to talk about today in a few
moments we are going to talk all about handwriting before that I would like to
explain a couple of words I have been asked to explain the difference between
these two words now I did actually talk about this a few weeks ago in one of my
recorded full English lessons but I will do it again I don’t mind I will do it
again just for you so the first word is loose loose the second word lose loose
lose loose lose so if something is loose it
means it is not fixed securely something is not secured or fixed firmly so if
something is loose it means it is not secured there is some movement in the
thing that should be secured so something that is loose is something
that has some movement for example you might have a loose tooth so one of your
teeth might be loose something that is loose you can also loose something it
means you let go so if you loose something it means you let go of it and
the second word is lose that means to put something down and then later you
can’t find it you lose something maybe something that you had in your pocket
suddenly disappears you can’t find it anywhere maybe an item that you have in
your house suddenly vanishes you lose it something that was there but suddenly
isn’t you lose it you might lose a relative if they die you lose them so
you lose a parent or you lose a brother or a sister you lose them so these two
words have very different uses not fixed something that is not fixed in place it
is loose something that you can’t find something that has vanished something
maybe that you dropped whilst at walking you lose something the past tense of
this word is lost so you lose it you have lost it and then we have the word
loose and of course when you let go of something you loose it thank you very
much for your lovely messages today so many people are here Tomic says I heard
the other day that handwriting is significant for certain parts of our
brain this is true and this is something I was talking about a few weeks ago when
I was talking about ways of improving your English so a good way to get
English to stay in your brain is to write things out with your hand
don’t type them don’t do that write them with your hand apparently when you write
you are using extra parts of your brain parts of your brain that you don’t
normally use so when you see a word it is hard to remember it
however if you write something down it will stay in your brain much easier and
it will it will get into your memory it will stay in your memory much easier as
well so it is a good tip in fact it’s a brilliant piece of advice I have to say
it is really a very good tip so if you write it is a good way of getting words
new words sentences and also grammar rules in to your brain Thank You Tomic
hello also to zoo zoo Zika hello Susie care sorry I’m late I’m cycling what
right now you are actually riding your bicycle whilst watching me how are you
doing that have you got your mobile phone in your hand whilst you are
cycling along the road that doesn’t sound very safe to me take care take
care good afternoon to Ana Rita good afternoon to neo zero
as well thank you very much Cory says it’s true and it is a very good tip for
the memory so when we say tip it means a useful piece of advice or maybe an idea
to help your life go easier so when we say tip it is a suggestion a useful
suggestion is a tip I like that word so we are talking about handwriting we are
going to take a look at some of my handwriting in a moment and also mr.
Steve’s handwriting and I want you to decide whose handwriting is the best is
it mine or mr. Steve’s so that coming in a moment and we will
be taking a journey into my thought process you will see soon some of the
notes that I write to give me ideas for my lessons so we are going to take a
journey into my my strange brain it is true by the way
when we talk about writing or handwriting the study of handwriting is
graphology so graphology is the study of handwriting a person who studies
handwriting is a graphologist so a graphologist will study a person’s
handwriting they will look at it and they can tell by the style and the way
that they write they can tell what a person is like they can actually work
out a person’s personality just by looking at their handwriting I must be
honest with you I’m a I’m a little bit scared by that
so we say graphology or a person who studies handwriting
quite often I think it is a type of psychology as well so I think graphology
might be an area of psychology so you can actually work out you can understand
a person’s character by looking at their handwriting I don’t know about you but I
find that a little scary I really do Irene hello to Irene hello cute armed’
hello cute armed’ how are you feeling my friend how am I feeling I’m feeling very
happy even though I was lying in bed today until 11 o’clock and then suddenly
I remembered that I was starting earlier because it’s Saturday
it’s Saturday okay okay that’s enough that’s enough
that’s enough Saturday you can have too much Saturday hi – Irene hello also – oh
I’ve got one or two people saying hello in Arabic but of course you can type
your name so I can read it if you don’t mind anna says my handwriting is awful
oh okay then now we are going to take a look at my handwriting would you like to
see my handwriting so this is my handwriting
now I haven’t tried to make this look neat I haven’t tried to make my
handwriting look better than it really is
this is how my handwriting looks and here it is right now so that is actually
my handwriting as you can see it says this is a sample of my handwriting so
that is what I wrote this morning on a piece of paper and also I got mr. Steve
to do the same thing so there is my handwriting and this is mr. Steve’s
handwriting so that’s mr. Steve and that is me so there is my handwriting and
there is mr. Steve’s handwriting see I think mr. Steve’s
handwriting is is quite hard to read I think I think it looks a bit like the
writing of a doctor do you know when a doctor writes something on a piece of
paper you can never understand it you can never read what it says so I
think mr. Steve’s handwriting looks a little bit like a doctor’s handwriting
and there is my handwriting so which is better
which do you think is better mmm so which one do you think
is better mine mr. Steeves my handwriting or mr. Steeves
I think my handwriting is better I mean of course I’m going to say that aren’t I
of course I’m going to say that Tomic says not bad mr. Duncan your handwriting
is easy to decipher to understand so if you decipher something you can actually
read it it is a you are able to convert what is written into the thing that has
meaning so you decipher something we can also
say translate I suppose Abraham mr. Duncan your handwriting is
not very bad it’s good I’m not sure about that you see I think I think
Steve’s handwriting is better than mine however I think my handwriting is
clearer I remember at school one of my teachers
said that my handwriting looks as if a spider has been in the inkwell and then
it’s walked across the paper I think that’s very unfair to be honest very
unfair indeed hello to Patrick both of them look good
oh okay then I like that that is also nice to hear in Japan they
say that your handwriting expresses your personality yes we have a thing called
graphology where a person can actually determine your personality based on your
handwriting Wow I wonder what they would say about this I wonder what a
graphologist would say about that so there is Steve and there is me my
handwriting would you like to have a look now it’s some of the things I do
when I’m preparing my live streams I told you a story during the week about
something that happened during the night and I had a very strange experience
where I got out of bed and I came downstairs and I sat in my studio and I
did some writing I actually wrote some notes some ideas for my live streams so
I’m going to show you now so these this gives you an idea of how my brain works
so right now this is real I haven’t made this up this is not fake this is what I
did in the middle of the night during the week and I wasn’t even awake I was
half asleep there it is so that is what I wrote and I don’t know
why my handwriting seems very neat and I don’t know why so this is something I
wrote on a piece of paper during the night when I couldn’t sleep and you can
see there are some ideas thought of my live streams in fact I used all of these
ideas the next day on my live stream so you can see I was writing notes about
extremes also my strange little thought that occurred in my head about blue food
and the word hyperbole as well was a word that is being used quite a lot at
the moment in the news so there you can see a sample of not only my handwriting
but also the notes that I sometimes write out when I’m planning a lesson so
this particular note is one I wrote out in the middle of the night when I was
half asleep it’s true twice al Muricy says hi mister
Duncan are you okay I’m okay thank you we follow you from the Republic of Yemen
can you please say my name twice al Maru see I hope I pronounced your name right
if not well at least I tried I tried and that’s the most important thing of all
would you like to have a look at another one of my notes oh dear
so this gives you an idea of the strange things that I that I write he was
something else that I wrote down on a piece of paper and again it is just a
random thought that went through my brain so I wrote it down because I
thought it was interesting the dark ages were in fact the Middle Ages does anyone
know what that actually means I wrote that down and I can’t remember why I
wrote it down so that gives you an idea of what my
brain is like how it functions so the dark ages were in fact the Middle Ages I think I know why I wrote that down I
think what I was saying is a lot of people say the Dark Ages when they
actually mean the Middle Ages so quite often the Middle Ages between is it when
is it 5 5 BC not BC ad 5 AD 210 ad is the Middle Ages so I think that’s it
isn’t it that’s it that’s it that’s it but often we call the Middle Ages the
Dark Ages even though technically it wasn’t but the reason why they call it
the Dark Ages of course is because it followed the fall of the Roman Empire so
I I think that’s how my brain was working
I hope it makes sense Valentin says it seems that you do so little to make a
speech or fully good oh I’m not sure what that means
is that a compliment Thank You Valentin it seems you need so little to make a
speech oh I see so you mean very few notes this is true I don’t know how or
why but again I think it’s how my brain works I am able to talk about things
quite easily without thinking about it I don’t know why I have a very strange
brain mr. Duncan what a good knowledge of universal history yes it was just a
random thing that popped in my head so I think it was something that I learned at
school and I remembered for all of those years and for some reason at that moment
my brain thought it was interesting so that’s an insight into the way my brain
works I hope you enjoyed that or not hello palmyra some historians think that
Dark Ages were in fact not so dark yes well nowadays we don’t tend to use the
word Dark Ages I think that has become a little unpopular because of the negative
connotations so yes I think quite often these things get mixed up neo zero says
I don’t like trivia ah I like that word trivia we might talk about that tomorrow
so trivia when we talk about trivia we mean facts and information that aren’t
really important however they are quite useful to
remember so trivia small facts small moments of time that we refer to
something they it is trivial small unimportant or
something that needn’t be mentioned is trivial trivial Thank You neo zero for
introducing that word so I’m going in a minute
because it is always a short one on Saturday because I’m going into town
with mr. Steve we have Bing lunch in town today
thank you huh Sam good afternoon mr. Duncan and all a group I will be going
soon hello also – duck hello duck
watching in Vietnam yes I don’t know why I’ve always had an ability to stand up
and talk about things without having much preparation I don’t know how I do
it but I think it has something to do with my brain because I’ve known for all
my life that my brain does not work like everyone else’s and I don’t know why mr.
Steve’s handwriting looks professional even though mr. Duncan’s is more
standard and understandable I see so there is mr. Steve’s handwriting and
there is my handwriting I think my handwriting looks a little messy mr.
Steve’s looks quite professional and neat by the way talking of neat there is
a type of writing which is very neat we call it calligraphy calligraphy is a
form of handwriting which is very neat it is almost like art I suppose an
example of calligraphy is on the screen now so when we talk about calligraphy we
are talking about artistic writing it looks almost like art
calligraphy very nice thank you – Tomic for your mention today Thank You refika
Thank You Luis thank you also to Ana pal Mira have a
delicious lunch and a nice time in town I hope so
I will I will see you tomorrow and of course today is the day when we find out
what happens with this it is the big decision taking place today in the
houses of parliament what will happen next find out tomorrow because I am back
with you from 2 p.m. UK time I will see you tomorrow
and of course I hope you have a super day enjoy the rest of your weekend
thank you to refika Shaddaa Lee Ha Na refika again Maria
Beatriz thank you very much for your company I know a lot of you aren’t here

    Hi Misterduncan!
    My prediction about the BREXIT:
    I am thinking that Boris Johnson is going to persist with his position although the parliament has decided to postpone the Brexit to some extend ( lack of laws as they said) . Finally Jonhnson will have to resign.

  • Ali Rezaie says:

    In my opinion, because you are a teacher your handwriting is more legible; for a long time, you have been writing to teach your students . From another point of view, when you are writing for yourself without any special attention to its details and you have to write a lot at the same time, you are likely to start to economize it. That is why some don't have a good handwriting.
