How to discuss a topic in a group

Five English teachers come together to show you how to discuss a topic in a group. You'll learn how to give your opinion, interrupt, contradict, and more. We'll teach you how to use expressions like "in a nutshell", "please let me finish", and "don't get me wrong". You can use these expressions confidently in personal, social, and professional situations.

My name is Rebecca, and in today's lesson you'll learn how to participate effectively in a discussion in English, something you may need to do in your personal, professional, or academic life, okay? Now, the topic we'll use as our sample is this one: Is it better to study online or in a regular classroom? Okay? You'll have a chance to hear a discussion by native English speakers on this topic. What I'd like you to do is listen for any special expressions and phrases that they use during the discussion. Afterwards, I'll review the expressions and phrases with you, okay? Now, today I have some special friends who have agreed to help me with this lesson, and they're waiting in the classroom next door, so let's go and say hello to them. — Hello! — Hello! — Hi! — Hi! — Well, look who's here. It's — — Ronnie. — Alex. — James. — Adam. — Thank you for joining me, and thanks for helping with this lesson, guys. — No problem. — No problem. — So you know we're talking about discussions, and the topic is: Is it better to study online or in a regular classroom? Okay, who wants to go first? — Okay, so I'll start, and I think that it's actually very good to study online because it's very convenient because you can study whenever you want and at your own pace. For example, someone like me, I like to study at nighttime. So for me, online works better because it's quiet at night, no one disturbs me, and I can do what I need to do. — Okay, that's true, but if you're going to study online — — Sorry, but — — Please let me finish. Let me finish. As I was saying, that's true, but if you're studying online you do need to motivate yourself, so I think it's better to be in a classroom where you have other students and a teacher who can motivate you. — That's true, but some people can't afford to go to a classroom and don't have enough money or resources to actually go to a big school. So studying online, you can actually do it for free. — Me? Well, I would like to add — May I say something? — Sure. — Soft skills. That's not usually talked about in schools, but

How to Use Chopsticks

Chopsticks for everyone! Japanese Chopsticks Gift Set: http://amzn.to/1L2epCS Happy Sales 5 Pairs Japanese Chopsticks Flower & Leaves: http://amzn.to/1MgPglZ Royal Paper Premium Disposable Bamboo Chopsticks: http://amzn.to/1Zi42lX Happy Sales 10 Pc Chopstick Stainless Steel Chopsticks: http://amzn.to/1jdYqZ3 Watch more Dining & Table Manners videos: Like skiing and speaking a foreign language, chopstick use is a skill ideally acquired in childhood. But with a little perseverance, adults tired of feeling boorish in Asian restaurants can become adept. Step 1: Position chopsticks In your right hand, traditionally used even by the left-handed, rest the thick end of one chopstick on the webbing between your thumb and forefinger so that about an inch of it sticks out beyond your hand, and rest the other end on your ring finger. Keep your fingers loosely curled. Tip Successful chopstick use depends on stabilizing this bottom chopstick, which doesn't move, to leave your thumb and forefinger free to maneuver the top chopstick, which does. Step 2: Grip bottom stick w/ thumb Grip this bottom chopstick with the bottom of your thumb so it is immobilized and sits firmly on your ring finger. Tip You can use the tip of your middle finger to stabilize the ring-finger end of the chopstick. Step 3: Grip top stick w/ fingertips If you're holding the bottom chopstick correctly, your entire index finger and the top joint of your thumb are free to move around. Grip the top chopstick between the tips of these fingers so that its tip lines up with the bottom chopstick's tip. Step 4: Maneuver top & bottom sticks To pick up a piece of food, maneuver the top chopstick to grasp it with the tip and brace it against the bottom one. Tip Etiquette requires that you use chopsticks neither to chop nor to stick. For that, use knives and forks. Step 5: Lift food w/ chopsticks Now, carefully lift a piece of food with your chopsticks, taking care not to let it slide out. Sweet success. Did You Know? Many sushi aficionados insist that sushi should be eaten with the fingers—an excellent fallback position if you have trouble mastering chopsticks.

How To Count Past Infinity

my twitter: @tweetsauce my instagram: electricpants Sources and links to learn more below! I’m very grateful to mathematician Hugh Woodin, Professor of Philosophy and Mathematics at Harvard, for taking the time on multiple occasions to discuss this topic with me and help me wrap my (finite) head around it. I’m also grateful to David Eisenbud, the Director of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) and professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, for his help and for connecting me with Hugh Woodin. And of course, big thanks to Brady Haran who created the “mile of pi” seen in this video and connected me with all these mathematicians in the first place.
