English [Auto] Hey, guys, welcome to the first video of your course, I'm so happy you chose this course and want to study with me, I'm sure I can really, really help you. Now, in this first video, I want to talk about something so simple, but about how the word you in questions can become. Yeah, like a karate idea. Let's go. The first thing about the verb to be that a lot of students forget and need to remember is about how we change the word order in questions. Yeah, in your language, questions are probably very simple. You change the intonation, right? But in English, especially with the verb to be, we need to change the word order to you are to. Are you are you. This is the same with the rest of the verb to be right. Am I. Are you. Is he. Is she we. Are we etc.. So many students when they are speaking they forget, they forget to put the correct word order. They say you are Irish. He is busy because in your language questions you only change the intonation, you change the tone of voice English with the verb to be you must change the word order. Now, in this video, I want to show you about how are you asking questions will be Ariah. Pronounced with me, Aria, Aria, you OK, for example, simple questions of are you OK? Are you busy? Are you interested? When we speak quickly, we say, Aria, are you busy? Are you interested? Another thing so many students forget is when you put a word like what, where, when, why, etc. after you must change the word order. What are you doing? When are you going? Why are you going? What time are you going? OK, ok. This is our first training session of the course. It's very simple. I will show you a sentence in yellow like this and this sentence is completely correct. OK, now the other examples in black are the contractions and they are not correct grammar, but they are the real English that we speak. The important thing is your participation. You must participate in the training to get the maximum benefit from the course. Training in the course means to pause the recording, listen and repeat, pause. Listen, repeat and train is not a problem to repeat the same sentence five, eight, ten times. This is about training your listening and about training your speaking, but your participation is essential. Decide now to participate one hundred percent in all the training sessions. OK, let's go. What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you what are you doing? What are you doing? Are you really busy now? Aria, are you really busy now? Aria, are you really busy now? Are you really busy now? Are you free to meet tomorrow? Are you are you free to meet tomorrow, Aria? Are you free to meet tomorrow? Are you free to meet tomorrow? Now here you can see the word two is contracted to her. This is very common. Are you free to meet? Not always. Are you free to meet, but are you free to meet tomorrow? Are you free to meet tomorrow? What are you talking about? What are you talking about? What are you talking about? What are you what are you talking about? What time are you working tomorrow? What time are you working tomorrow? What time are you What time are you working tomorrow? What time are you working tomorrow? OK, guys, that is the first video I will see you in the next video when we talk about do you two do you see other guys?
