Learn English with Mr. Duncan - Lesson 1 (Introduction)


hi everybody this is Misterduncan England

how are you today are you okay I hope so

are you happy I hope so welcome to the very first episode of my series of

English teaching videos before I begin we will take a look at some of the

common questions that often arise when talking about learning the English

language and more importantly learning it as a second language

so the first question must be why do we need to learn English of course one of

the reasons why we need to be able to speak English nowadays is because the

world is becoming smaller

thanks to the internet and our developing global economy more and more

people are using English as a common way to communicate with each other

so now it has become unavoidable that companies and large businesses will need

to employ people who can speak more than their own native language that is where

English comes in

it is now officially considered as an international language

of course learning anything is difficult and english is no exception

however there are ways to make the situation easier

I have come up with my own list of general rules for learning English do

you want to hear them

do you want to know what they are ok let's go

learning English takes time and patience

it cannot be rushed try to relax and take it easy

the most important thing you need in the beginning is a good vocabulary without


you have nothing to work with you must start with a strong foundation or base

and slowly build on it day by day

you must view English as a part of your body just as you would an R or a leg

it must become a part of your everyday life they practise is very important

do not worry about making mistakes in fact the more mistakes you make the more

you will learn from them just like learning to ride a bike

sometimes you fall off so what do you do you get back hard and try again

do not look at english as just another subject

your attitude to english and the way you view it will decide how well you


just as we say in English no pain no game

the two most important words to remember when learning English our practise and

confidence practise English everyday and be confident you will find that the more

you use English the better your English will become and the more confident you

become then the more you will want to use it

make it a rule to tell yourself I can do it I can do it


please remember my lessons are aimed as everyone so hopefully you will find

something useful in each one

maybe you will find some of the words I use very easy but you will also see some

words that may be new to you remember my lessons are aimed as everyone even

teachers are very welcome to join in learning English should be a fun

experience and I hope with the help of my video lessons you will discover just

how much fun it can be i hope you enjoyed my first lesson
