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! Video Transcript Below: Hi guys! Hi boys and girls and welcome back to Robby’s English Harmony video blog. I welcome you to this video on this nice Sunday afternoon. However, let me draw your attention to the fact that it might not be a Sunday that this video is published on YouTube, simply because I tend to record a bunch of videos and then I publish them as I see fit, basically, right? And, if you notice that I used this phrase that we’re going to be talking about today, “let me draw your attention to the fact”… I used it, previously, a couple of seconds ago there. And that was pretty much the first example scenario, how would you use it, right? It’s simply to draw somebody’s attention to a specific fact, right? And also, let me draw your attention to the fact that this phrase is somewhat more professional, formal, if you know what I mean. You wouldn’t be, probably, using this phrase when chatting with your friends in a very, very informal setting, you know? You might use it, it won’t hurt, you know? But, it’s just that it’s probably, typically used in a professional environment. Imagine giving a presentation, or giving a speech, and that’s when you would use this phrase.

This is a massive jug, you know? For all intents and purposes, this is almost like a pint jug that you drink Guinness, you know? So, yeah, let me draw your attention to the fact that is only the second one, because, why I’m saying only, the simple fact of the matter is lately I’ve been kind of stressed out, you know? There’s been a lot going on in my life and I started drinking coffee in ever increasing amounts. And lo and behold, I started developing a slight headache, you know? And it’s been troubling me for the last couple of days. And that’s human nature, you know? That’s human nature. You don’t change your behavior unless something starts troubling you, you know? So I cut down on the amount of coffee that I’m consuming. This is the second day, if I’m not mistaken, and I’m feeling much better, gotta tell you. So my resolution is, when I go back to work tomorrow, I will only have two cups max, you know? Two cups max. But now I’m enjoying it. And let me draw your attention t...
