Have a big American speech coming up? Need to practice your American? Maynard here, I can help you address large groups of Americans with elegance and style.
Hello friends, thank you for joining me, Maynard, on the exciting journey of improving your English Language Skills. My channel, Understanding English for Amateurs, is focused primarily on the American version of English, as that is where I currently reside and may have also resided in a past life.
Are you an ESL Student, immigrant, or come from a household where English is not the primary language? Then allow my extensive research to assist you in improving your understanding of the English Language.
My videos are primarily broken up into a few different categories and are set up in different playlists for ease of finding. They are:
1. Understanding American Sayings or Idioms.
2. Dealing with Americans and how they act or talk
3. How to pass yourself off as an American
4. Keeping your psychosis in check in public
Today's episode deals with DEALING WITH AMERICANS AND HOW THEY ACT OR TALK
In it I will explain how Americans deal with addressing large groups of people. It is not as obvious as one would hope. Before I figured out this one simple trick, I was address people, individually by name. This was both time consuming and likely inaccurate as I would forget people's names frequently. I would say things like "Candice, Stephanie, Michael, Cameron, Harold, Janice, Todd, Fredrick, Paula, Gregory, Eustace, Gertrude, Narnia, Seoul, Dusseldorf, Ulysses" and these would all be wrong. Watch and learn.
Please, listen, learn, and apply, like, and share. Thank you!
