    247: 10 new words added to the dictionary in 2019

    247: 10 new words added to the dictionary in 2019

    Every year I like to teach a lesson on new words that have been added to the dictionary recently. The English language is always changing and evolving, and we're always creating new words or new meanings for existing words.

    Today you're going to learn 10 new words and definitions that were added to the dictionary in the past year.
    These are just a few of hundreds of new words that have been added to the dictionary in the past year, and I hope you found them interesting!

    It's really important for you to have a good foundation of English vocabulary, so that you can express yourself without pausing and trying to think of the words.

    My Vocabulary Builder Courses can help you get this good foundation of essential English words. These courses are really helpful in building your vocabulary so that you know what to say in English.

    Thanks for joining me today, and I'll talk to you in the next lesson!

    246 - Holiday or vacation?

    246 - Holiday or vacation?

    It's just a couple days away from Christmas, which is a major holiday in the United States. So in today's lesson I'm going to teach you about the difference between the words holiday and vacation.

    English learners often ask me about this, and it's a little tricky!
    Now put it into practice!

    What’s your favorite holiday? Describe it in English.

    What did you do on your last vacation? Write about it in English.

    One common expression you’ll often hear in December is “Happy Holidays!” - wishing someone a nice season of celebration, regardless of whether they celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or another special time.

    So, happy holidays to you! Make sure to follow Espresso English on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter so that you don't miss any lessons in the new year.

    245 - Correct your English errors FAST!

    Today's lesson is about common mistakes, but first I want to say one thing: Please don't let the fear of errors stop you from speaking English! 

    It's MUCH more important to communicate and practice your speaking, even if it's not perfect.

    However, one of the fastest ways to correct your English errors is to focus on avoiding the most common mistakes - and I'll teach you 5 in this lesson.
    In my years of experience as an English teacher, I've heard many of the same errors very frequently, so I created a course to help you fix them! 

    It’s called 200 Common Errors in English, and you’ll learn how to avoid errors in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, spelling, and more.

    Click on the link for more information and free samples. I think you'll find it very helpful in correcting any mistakes you might be making in English.
