Spoken English Course - Day 6

Spoken English Course - Day 6

Date: Mar 02 2011

Topic: Speaking

Author: andylu2


Hey guys,

Thanks for all your comments and "likes".  From the comments, I can see that people are really learning from this stuff, which is great.

This is my 6th straight day of teaching something new, and hopefully helpful for your day to day spoken English.  

I try to get my lesson ideas from real life.  Check out day one of of the English speaking course to get the idea of the program.

Today's topic is going to be really useful for daily speaking.  

It is "Don't go there"

This isn't talking about not going to some particular place.  It means don't talk about some sensitive topic.  There are so many topics that could be sensitive for many different reasons.  They might start an pointless argument with someone if you talk about them with certain people.  Here is an example of the meaning so you get the idea.

Bob:  Hey Kevin, are you still talking to that ugly girl you met at the bar when you were drunk last week?

Kevin: Hey man.  Don't go there.  I want to completely forget about that.  I'm still feeling pretty embarrassed about what happened.

Ok, I know that this example doesn't sound really kind or whatever, but it's a real life kind of phrase and I wanted to teach it to you.  I guarantee you will hear it if you watch enough American movies and now you will totally understand what it means. I'll reply to any questions and please click "like" if you enjoyed this so that I know who I'm helping.  Thanks.

All of your lessons are great!  I hope you get more and more people to click "like".  I think your explanations are very clear and you really can help my understanding.  I follow you everyday.  I use these phrases at work with some westerners I work with and they tell me that they are all useful and can already see my spoken English improve day by day. Smile<!-Session data->

Thanks Bittersweet.

By the way, can you tell us more about life in Azerbaijan?  There is so much of the world I wish I knew more about.

Hi malinda,

You're right.  "Let's not go there" is right too.  Often we put in the word "even".

"Let's not even go there".

Hi, Andy

Can we also say "let's not go there" as the same meaning with "don't go there"?

Example :

Dave : Hey, Bob. How is your deal with the boss about leading the new center?

Bob : Let's not go there. I'm pretty mad with the boss about the whole arrangement.
