Episode Info: Here’s how to improve your English listening skills when listening to my video: put the headphones on, playback the video and write it all down while listening to it! Transcript Below: Hi guys, hello boys and girls and hello my dear fellow foreign English speakers! It’s me, Robby from EnglishHarmony.com bringing you another video message which is going to be uploaded onto my YouTube channel and then it’s going to be embedded into a blog post on my blog EnglishHarmony.com and then I’m going to promote it for my Facebook followers, my Twitter followers, my LinkedIn partners so basically this message is being sent out for everyone who is interested in spoken English improvement basically, right? That’s what the whole thing is about. And today’s video is about the fact that not everyone, right, listen to this carefully guys, not every English speaker out there uses the very same means of expression, right?

And if you observe the way native English speakers speak you will also realize that certain people use certain phraseology more often than not, right?

So she would basically explain something and then in the end she would stick the phrase “that kind of a way”, right? And that was a peculiar phrase to her. I haven’t actually heard anyone else using that phrase, right? Obviously I’m not saying that just by using that one phrase you’re going to become a fluent English speaker, not at all. I’m just saying it to illustrate the fact that not everyone uses the same pool of expressions, right? And let me think of another example. My former instructor in the college t...
