31 Days of Learning English – DAY 24 – improve your English – DIRECTION – 24th October – THURSDAY


I’m out of Tic Tacs do-do-do-do-do oh there they are the
sheep this morning in the field you can see they are still there welcome here we
go again oh my goodness I can’t believe that I’m still here doing this
welcome today 24 of 31 days of learning English in October 2019 hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in
England how are you today are you ok I hope so
are you happy I really hope so here we are again live on YouTube yes I am with
you every single day during the month of October
2019 to celebrate my 13th anniversary I’m doing it everyday 2 p.m. UK time
Monday to Friday Saturday 12 p.m. just after midday and on Sunday you can catch
me live from 2 p.m. UK time as well something to mention this weekend the
clocks will change so we are going back 1 hour this weekend because British
summer time will be ending as we enter autumn and then winter of course so the
clocks are changing we are going back one hour here in the UK so for some of
you I know some of you are also going to change your clocks as well so some
people will be and some people won’t be so for some of you it might appear that
I’m on at the wrong time but it’s still 2 p.m. UK time so instead of British
summer time it will be G M T instead to be honest with you I wish we would just
stop all of this can we just have the clocks the same everywhere in the world
well you can’t have them the same of course not exactly the same but you know
what I mean anyway all of these changes all it does is confuse people people
don’t know where they are they don’t know if they are Arthur or Martha
talking of which it’s mr. Duncan that’s me by the way
teaching English to the world and I’ve been doing it for 13 years at the end of
this month it will be the anniversary of my YouTube channel however there will be
no it looks as if there will be no that I’m
not saying it I refuse to say this word anymore so it looks as if this is not
happening at the end of October however my anniversary is happening at the end
of October so I will be here for the rest of October one more week to go and
then I’m finished with 31 days of October and English who I must be honest
with you it’s been very busy now the worst part for me was the first week
during October so the first week I really felt as if I was climbing up hill
I really felt as if everything was going to be very difficult however I was able
to get through the first week and Here I am on day 24 can you believe it let’s
have a look outside because the window is looking lovely today would you like
to see the view outside oh it really does look quite beautiful out there
today very green you will see that some of the leaves are starting to turn
autumn has definitely arrived so there you can see a view out of the window
right now looking across and we also have our bird camera operating today
there it is the bird camera and you can see there are some birds on the camera
right now in front of us all oblivious to the fact that they are now being seen
seen by the entire world can you believe it they don’t even know it you can see
some gold finches feeding now earlier on I actually filmed the birds outside so
let’s have a look earlier on because there were quite a few Birds outside
earlier so this was earlier before I came on and you can see look at that
there are quite a few goldfinches on the bird feeder I love
gold finches they are they are so beautiful lovely lovely birds they’re so
nice they look happy they looked cheerful and also they sound
quite happy as well I love the birdsong of the Goldfinch
aren’t they lovely really nice so we will check in we will check in live with
the bird camera during today’s live stream you are probably wondering mr.
Duncan what’s happened to your hands have you been doing some surgery in your
kitchen have you been sawing mr. Steve’s leg off no I haven’t in fact
yesterday I was in the kitchen if you remember and I forgot to show you these
these are my rubber gloves so these are very useful items to have in the kitchen
and yesterday I was showing you around my kitchen at all of the wonderful
devices all of the gizmos and gadgets in my kitchen
so yesterday I didn’t show you my rubber gloves these come in very useful when
you are doing a job that is dirty and unpleasant
maybe mr. Steve has blocked the toilet up again so I have to put my hand down
there and I have to get rid of the blockage it’s horrible and sometimes I
have to go all the way to my elbow that’s how far down I have to go
sometimes so my rubber gloves I didn’t show these
yesterday for which I apologize but there they are right now rubber gloves
they are very useful if you want to do something that’s messy or dirty maybe
you are about to clean maybe something that is and hygienic
maybe you’re about to wash mr. Steeves underwear so perhaps you are going to
wash mr. Steeves underwear you will definitely need a pair of rubber gloves
I think so here we go then live English I will take my gloves off
because well for two reasons one they are very hot and two unfortunately I
can’t operate my smartphone if I’m wearing gloves because you can’t make
the phone work so first of all I will take off my rubber gloves it feels for
me so let’s have a look at the live stream shall we who is on the live chat
oh hello there hello Nessie Nessie I guess what you are first on today’s live
stream I think I’m losing my voice today I think my voice is actually starting to
fade because I’ve been talking non-stop for the past 24 days well 23 days 24
days if you count today well then nasiha you are first on
today’s live chat well then Messier Rahul is here as well
Anna Coby Luis Mendez Thank You Luis for joining me once again from sunny France
I assume it’s sunny it might not be here in the UK it’s a little bit dull a
little bit dismal however it’s looking rather nice outside it really does look
like autumn has arrived hello also to Louie Louie hello Louie
Louie oh I’ve just realised well my fingers smell disgusting they’ve been
inside those rubber gloves yeah that’s disgusting do I really have to
put it with that smell for the rest of this livestream yeah horrible hello –
Sean Anna nasiha a gay zoo zoo seeker is here as well hello to you all so Theo
hello Theo hello to everyone mr. Duncan hope you are doing well I’m not too bad
but I think my voice is starting to fade away because I’ve been using it so much
during October thank you very much for showing the Sheep
you are welcome hi mr. Duncan says Cesar nice to see you as well hello also –
Canaan or Hannon hello to you from Algeria amen amen
ZT says hello Cristina asks why are you wearing your gloves well I’ve told you
I’ve explained that I was going to show them yesterday but I forgot sweetness I
hate changing the clock however in my country Georgia
it won’t happen well we have to change the clocks twice a year so as summer
approaches we have to move the clocks forward
as winter approaches we have to turn the clock back and it’s really annoying so
that is happening this Sunday so when you watch me on Sunday you might notice
that the deter time will be a little bit different but it’s not my fault I have
no control over whether or not we turn our clocks back I don’t have that much
power Hanna says why do certain countries change the time well here
apparently it all stems from the time when the days would get dark early and
also during the days when there was pollution and it was actually all about
safety on the roads so it was decided that you could get an extra hours
daylight if you altered the clocks and apparently they worked out that this
would save lives so that is what happened in this country hello sweetness
hello also Alberto hello Alberto Wow 28 days in a row you’re amazing mr. Duncan
thank you for your thank you for enlightening us it is difficult to watch
you live but always a faithful follower thank you very much
hello Rosa hello also to muna lots of people here already so let’s catch up to
date with the live chat hello Ana I’m allergic to rubber yes some people are
they have a sensitivity to latex so yes if you are allergic to rubber or latex
then you can’t wear rubber gloves Thank You mr. Duncan for reminding us about
turning our clocks back yes this weekend the clocks will change one
hour back talking of we we are talking all about direction today
now this seems like a small topic an innocent topic but I really feel as if
today I may have bitten off more than I can chew so I feel as if I might have
taken on a very big subject so this might seem like a very simple subject
but in fact it’s quite complex maybe more complicated than I had anticipated
to be honest so we are talking about Y direction
yeah direction yeah hmm that’s what we’re doing today I’ve been asked to
explain a phrase and apparently this was used in a song I I can’t remember which
song but I’ve been asked to explain this what does it mean when you take for
granted take for granted well if you take for granted
it means you always expect something to be there you never consider the value of
something you have especially if it’s something important or valuable or
something that you really need so because something is always there
with you or near you or maybe something is always available you take for granted
you take that thing for granted so you always expect it to be there for example
when you go into your kitchen you will turn the tap and there will be water you
always expect the water to be there you will take it for granted so when we take
for granted it means we always expect something to
be there all the time so to take for granted means you always
expect something to available or nearby perhaps if you are
in a relationship maybe your girlfriend or boyfriend might accuse you of taking
them for granted you will always expect them to be there
with you or to call you or when they come round at the weekend you never
appreciate how much time they actually give you so we can say that you take
something for granted you always expect it to be there and
available I do enjoy explaining words and phrases
so don’t worry I’m always interested to hear from you and by the way if you want
to get in touch you can follow me on Facebook yes I have a Facebook page some
people don’t realize that but I do I have an official yes it’s official it
actually has a blue tick so I’ve been I’ve actually been approved by Facebook
so I do have a Facebook page and also you can email me as well if you want to
you can email me and also follow me on Facebook Christina says you must never
take your boyfriend for granted you must never expect him to always be
with you always give you attention maybe you forget how
much time and effort he puts into it perhaps some people take me for granted
especially during October so maybe some people don’t even realize how much work
and effort goes into doing this because it looks so easy a lot of people say mr.
Duncan doing a live stream it’s easy you should try doing it sometime you really
should hello Oh Rosa hello Rosa it looks as if you knew
I was about to say Rosa says I take the live stream for granted yes now to take
something for granted of course is not a good thing because when that thing has
gone when the thing that you always expect to be there has vanished you will
really miss that thing when it’s gone today I am off because it is the
birthday of my city Manaus it is 350 years old
that’s almost as old is mr. Steve almost Giorgio ciao mr. Duncan
I like your stripes on your t-shirt thank you very much there is a long
story concerning this t-shirt I didn’t buy this new I bought it from a friend
of Steve’s for five pounds that’s not bad is it and I think this is this is
what is it it’s Paul Smith apparently as far as I’m aware that is some sort of
designer clothing label I’m not really sure because I’m not a follower of
fashion so I paid five pounds for this not bad when you think about it
hello also to Ramzan or hello to you thanks for joining us today it’s nice to
see you here so many people here I was asked the other day if I could go back
to my old position in the studio I think it was Pedro who asked now for those who
have been watching my live streams for a long time you will know that I started
my live streams in 2016 however and this is a big thing however over those years
my live stream has changed a lot so originally this is what my live stream
look like so there it is that is the original
setup of my livestream so that’s what it looked like in March 2017 so I had
already been doing my livestream for a few months so you can see my livestream
used to look very different I used to sit in front of my computer and talk in
my chair and that’s one of the things that I found really tiring because
sitting down for a long time can be very tiring and also the other reason why I
moved is because I got a new computer and also some new equipment and that
equipment is very noisy so that’s the other reason why I don’t sit in front of
my computer anymore I used to do it I used to sit in front of the computer but
now I don’t and also mr. Steve used to be a guest way back in 2017 and also
2018 and there he is there is Steve in the studio who
remembers the time when mr. Steve got his grinder and it was so noisy he’d
actually deafened me so there’s mr. Steve doing something rather crazy way
back in 2017 so even mr. Steve used to be a guest on my live stream hello to H
Sam hello to you thank you very much for watching Christina I can’t think of a
day without your lessons because you teach well and you’re like a familiar
person yes a few people have said this they’ve said you are now part of my day
so when I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is put on your live
stream so for many people I have become part of their day part of their daily
life years ago I saw your video like an unexpected gift and I still
think so that’s very kind of you to say I’m not
looking for compliments by the way sometimes I feel a little bit shy a
little bit embarrassed by all of the attention lack Lakisha says a narita
reminds me of an italian name it does sound italian doesn’t it you are right
cash trailer asks Pedro do you know for tonight
as I understand it fortnight is a computer game and before anyone asks no
I don’t play computer games I really don’t I don’t play playstation or xbox
or Nintendo or Atari I don’t think Atari exists anymore mr.
deckerd you’re showing your age hello also to Murray yeah oh it’s nice to see
you here thank you very much sweetness Mitra says how I miss mr. Steve
well he might join us after October comes to an end so because mr. Steve has
other things to do in his life he can’t always join us unfortunately quite a few
people now leaving comments Belarus er oh I see some some sad news from Belarus
eeeh my mother is in hospital again it’s a hard life can I send my best wishes to
you and your mother and all of your family Greeley oh hello mr. Duncan the this according to Greeley Oh is the best
direction are you sure about that they would would appear to be a lot of people
who would disagree with you H Sam says I used to play Atari a long
time ago yes I don’t think they exist anymore do they
but I remember in the 1980s Atari became a very well-known brand
hello mr. Duncan I am listening to you from Japan a big hello to all those
watching in Japan I have quite a few viewers watching there and it is a
country that I’ve always been fascinated by hello to Palmyra hello also to Anna
thank you Anna it’s nice to see you all here today we
are now going to take a look back in time on this day in 2013 I was doing day
24 of my dunk Tober lessons and now we are going to take a look at that very
lesson which was published on this day six years ago oh hello and good morning welcome to day
24 of 31 days of dunk Tober how are you this morning are you fine and dandy I
really really hope so welcome to another sneak peek at my oh so glamorous life
right now I’m bringing my dust bin back up the driveway after it was emptied
early this morning this is my green bin the green bin is used for putting guard
and wasting grass cuttings small twigs and leaves anything that you cut or
prune can be placed in here I have to dust bins here this green one and a
black one the black bin is for household waste these are really bins they are
dust bins on wheels they are nice and large which is good because each bin is
emptied every two weeks their large size means that they are really good really
good wheelie wheelie bins it’s a joke not a very good one what a load of rubbish it’s time to take
out the rubbish we use the word rubbish in England to describe things that have
been thrown away while in the USA they say garbage or trash we can use these
words in other ways too if we think that a person is talking nonsense we can say
that they are talking rubbish he is talking rubbish what he said was a load
of garbage we can use the word trash to mean destroy or smash up the thieves
trash to the house the party goers trashed the flat you can talk trash
about someone you trash a person this means that you say bad things about them
you criticize someone quite often behind their back yeah look more rubbish to
check out more garbage to throw away yeah I’ll deal with you later
in daily life we all have unpleasant jobs to do there is always a chore that
we would rather not do waiting for us I hate putting the rubbish out I normally
push as much waste into my kitchen bin as I can until it almost bursts just so
I don’t have to walk to the dustbin these sorts of tasks can be described as
menial they are basic jobs that must be done that is all of the rubbish thrown out
all of the garbage has gone time now to go back indoors another task I dislike is housework
cleaning the house is such a laborious job it can also appear to be a waste of
time no sooner have you wiped a surface clean then a layer of dust appears
almost straightaway it’s quite vexing really to say the least
washing the dishes doing the laundry vacuuming the carpet all of these jobs I
would rather not to do but do them I must
oh there’s nothing like a nice rest after a hard day’s work unfortunately
there are still some jobs to do so I guess it’s time for me to carry on with
my daily tasks that pile of laundry isn’t going to wash itself well
technically it does wash itself but I have to put it in the washing machine
and press the button it’s all very hard you know there it was going back in time six
years ago today I was doing my household chores in the house having to throw the
rubbish or the garbage away and also I had to clean the carpet so I hope you
enjoyed that just proving that I do do the housework so ignore everything that
Steve says because quite often Steve will badmouth he will say bad things
about me he will say mr. Duncan he never never cleans the house he doesn’t even
know where the vacuum cleaner is it’s not true it’s all lies today we are
talking about direction that is what we are doing as we head towards three
o’clock and that is the direction we are going in now thanks for your lovely
comments thank you very much to Christina a sheep in the house and a
penguin – very nice yes we have some very strange things in our house one or
two of the things are in the window and my postman really does think that we
might be a little bit crazy because we do have a sheep and also a snake in our
window and that is of course lady Willington and also Sydney Sydney the
snake hello – Pedro mr. Duncan do you spend your day alone
well today I’m alone because mr. Steve isn’t here so I am alone but I not
lonely there is a difference to be alone means to be solo or by yourself
however the feeling of loneliness is the sadness or unhappiness caused by being
alone so if you feel unhappy because you are
on your own then you feel alone but I don’t I never feel alone there are lots
of things to do to occupy my mind and of course I can go out to see people and
friends but at the moment during October the most important thing in my life is
this doing this hello to everyone who has joined me today it’s nice to see you
as we enter day 24 we are talking about direction today when we talk about
direction this subject actually has quite a big a large expansive
description there are many ways of describing this particular word so when
we talk about direction it means the way you are going however the way you are
going can be all sorts of things it can be physically it can be in your mind it
can be the way you plan your life or maybe your day so where we talk about
direction there are many ways of using this there are many ways of talking
about it we often talk about where we are heading so when we say heading we
mean where are you going or the direction you are heading in so when we
talk about heading we mean you are going in a certain direction you are traveling
in a certain way you are heading that way you are heading that way also headed
now this is more commonly used in American English so quite often you will
see headed used in American English and heading used in British English so there
is a difference between these two words however they basically mean the same
thing he’s headed west he’s heading west so American English
British English I hope that helps where we talk about direction of course we are
talking about lots of things so we talk about direction we are talking about our
course so this again is a word that can be used in more than one way so when we
talk about course it means maybe the way we are going or the route we are taking
of course this can also mean the direction you take when you are doing
something in your life or of course if you want to educate yourself you will
take a course so a number of things that you have to learn a number of exams that
you must take to achieve the thing that you get at the end so when we talk about
course in education it means a group of things are a number of things you must
learn a skill you must attain and of course exams that you must take at the
end so during the course you will learn things and normally at the end of the
course you will be tested route so again this word normally is used to describe
direction so we talked about a person’s route where you are going so in that
respect direction and route pretty much have the same meaning you are talking
about the way you are going the direction you are going in which
direction are you going in which route are you taking when you are driving on
the road for example there might be many directions that you can go in to get
from one place to another or you can take a certain route so when you go on a
certain route it means you
in a certain direction you follow some instructions so the word root can also
mean a set of instructions that tell you where to go so the root might be on the
map so you follow the route on the map I I am here and I need to get to here so I
must follow the route I must go in a certain direction so some good words
there some very interesting words some more words we can use connected to
direction we can say way so where you are going so the way you are traveling
the way again this can be used in more than one way so when we talk about way
we might mean the way to a place so the direction or the route or of course we
can talk about the method of doing something so when we talk about the
method of doing something we can also say way so the way you cook your meal
the way you do something the method and of course the direction you must find
your way you go from one place to another you find your way quite often we
use that phrase to mean that we are not sure where we are going maybe you are
not sure which way to go another one bearing so your sense of direction so
quite often when you are outside you will know where you are so your bearing
is your sense of direction you know which way to go
you know which way to turn you know which direction to go in you
know which way you are facing and we often use this word bearing bearing so
your movement in a certain direction and also knowing the position you are in
which way you are facing so you might lose your bearing you might get lost
track is another one and this word also has lots of uses track can be a pathway
that you follow to get from one place to another you can have a preset lion that
something will follow such as a railway track so track can also mean line that
goes in a certain direction a track also track can mean follow so in that respect
we are using it as a verb you track someone you are following them you know
where they are you are following them as they move around you track that person
you know where they are going another word in fact we have three words here
journey now these are words that describe the trip that you are making so
when you go in a certain direction you are moving to a certain place you are
going from somewhere to somewhere you are going on a journey so the journey is
the trip that you make transit transit means to be moving so you are moving
along you are in transit so when we talk about transit it means travel the
movement transit you are in transit so if we say
that a person is in transit it means they are moving they are on the move
they are traveling they might be in transit by car or plane they are in
transit if you are going on a long trip or a long journey we can say voyage
voyage a long trip a long journey is a voyage we often think of voyage as
traveling over sea so if you are sailing on a cruise if you are on a boat we will
often describe that as a voyage because quite often when you travel by sea the
journey will be very long quite often another word we can use eventually trip
I’ve mentioned this already so generally speaking we will often use the word trip
to mean journey you are going to a certain place you are going to see a
certain city or a certain country you go on a trip you take a trip of course the
word trip can also mean fall so if you fall over
you also trip so this particular word has more than one use expedition if you
go to explore something you want to look at something closely maybe you go on
holiday maybe you go to a certain place perhaps you go to Egypt to look at the
pyramids you will go on an expedition you will go to look around a certain
place sometimes you will investigate the things that are there you will look
closely at them so we say expedition if you are going somewhere for a short
time maybe just one day or maybe for the afternoon we can say outing you go on an
outing so an outing can mean a day trip you go somewhere for a short period of
time so you might go on an outing to the beach you go to the beach and then later
that day you will come back an outing you have an outing you go on a short
trip you take a short journey and you stay there for a short period of time
you just go out to experience something new or interesting excursion so when we
talk about excursion it means an organized trip an organized journey so
you might go with many people on a bus or a coach you will take a coach to a
certain place you will go on an excursion an excursion so you might go
away next week to the beach we can say that you are going on an excursion day
trip day trip so once again day trip means a short journey or a short stay a
day trip you go somewhere and then later the same day you will return if you want
to take a little journey if you want to go on a journey and have some fun we can
say jaunt jaunt you might go away somewhere to have a bit of fun maybe you
go out in your car and drive somewhere scenic you will take a jaunt I love that
word it sounds French doesn’t it hello to Palmyra hello to Shawn ferry voyage
is a long journey yes so if you go on a voyage quite often
it is a long journey we often think of it as going by boat or by ship many
people nowadays like to go on a cruise so they will go on a boat for many days
and nights and travel around the world to different places they will go on a
voyage of discovery oh I like that so when we talk about voyage of
discovery it can also mean the things you learn about yourself or about life
so that’s the reason why I said that this is a very big subject so not only
is Direction physical it can also mean the way that you view your life or the
things you want to do later in your life so the direction is not only physical it
is also in your mind as well the direction that you want to go in the way
you want your life to go the things you want to do in the future we can talk
about your direction the way you are going hello to Ramsey Nouah again mr.
Duncan all these words are they nouns most of them are nouns yes
so the excursion describes the journey direction is where you are going if you
direct someone that means you are doing the thing you are telling a person where
to go so direct is verb we are using it verbally you are telling a person where
to go I will direct you I will tell you where to go I will explain the
directions to you so in that respect it is a verb hello Mika I often go for a
day trip at the weekend I think a lot of people do it’s very popular especially
when the weather is nice especially when it’s nice
outside but as you can hear I’m losing my voice can you believe it I made it
all a wait today 24 and I start losing my voice can
you believe that I can’t believe it so when we talk about direction I’m going
to show you very quickly how we can express direction with some of my
amazing drawings would you like to see my lovely drawings oh here we go so quite often when we give directions
we will often use these terms the terms are up/down so quite often we will say
up and down now the way we use this varies depending on the situation so
when we say up it can mean climb so you might go up a hill or up a mountain you
go up a slope you go upwards so we are talking about not just traveling
forwards but also traveling up so up however in some cases we might also use
the word up when we are talking about direction so quite often we will say up
the road you need to go up the road and quite often and this is very strange I
don’t know why this happens but quite often if we are talking about things
that are on the right we will say up and quite often if we talk about things that
are on the left we will often say down I don’t know why that happens it’s very
strange but I’ve noticed when I do it if I ever give directions if I’m pointing
right I will always say up and if her point left I will always say down you
need to go up there you need to go down there it’s very strange that so quite
often we will use up and down to show direction on a certain route you can go
up the road you can go down the road so if it is going away from you
in front its up if it is going away from you behind you it is down I came from
down the road down the road I was down the road and now I am going up the road
I came from down the road and now I am going up the road so you will see that
these two words even though they are very simple words very basic can have
their own special meaning when we are talking about direction you go up you go
down the other thing that it’s worth noting is you are watching me on a
screen so when I say right and left it is not your right and left because you
are watching me so as you look at the screen this is left and this is right
however from my point of view this is right and this is left and that is one
of the things that can be confusing when you are giving directions you have to
make sure that the other person knows that you mean left and right you have to
make sure they know that it is their left or your left so my left and your
left are different depending on your point of view which where you are facing
anna says up the road can also be follow or straight yes you are right yes you
can go straight up the road you can also go straight down the road you can also
follow the road so when you follow it just means you drive along so you follow
the road you drive along the road I hope you enjoyed my little diagram when we
are giving directions we will often give specific instructions for example you
might come to a junction and you can see here this particular Junction is called
a crossroads so you can see the crossroad is two roads that intersect so
that road continues and that road continues across so when we are giving
instructions we might tell someone to go straight on so if you go straight on it
means you go across the road of course you have to stop first of all you have
to stop to make sure there is no traffic coming this way but when we give a
person instructions we will say go straight on go straight on so don’t turn
go straight on continue ahead however we might also be telling someone to turn so
you might tell someone to turn right you turn right at the next Junction so at
the next Junction you turn right we might tell them the opposite we might
say at the junction you need to turn left turn left at the
next Junction turn right at the next Junction so when you come to a junction
and that’s a junction a junction is where one road meets another but you
have a choice of which way to turn you either turn left or right so there is
your choice and this type of Junction is called a T Junction
the reason why we call it T Junction is because it looks like the letter T we
can also talk about direction from a point of view of a compass so quite
often certainly years ago many people would carry a compass something that
they would look at so they would know which direction or what direction they
were going in so quite often we will give instructions to tell someone to
also go in a certain direction so these are very precise instructions for
example we might tell someone to head north
head north you head north so in the country you are traveling in in the town
you are traveling in you head north so if you look at the direction of your
compass you will know that you need to go north and then of course we have head
south when we say head we mean go you go in that direction you head south so
again in the country or city or town you go in that direction on the map or on
your compass we can head east head east you go in
that direction or of course head west head east head west
it is very distracting because from my point of view this is actually the wrong
way around but I know it’s right you head east you head west
you go east early you go west early an easterly direction
westerly again it means the same thing so I hope that’s alright we are big how
we will not know English I don’t know what that means I don’t know what I mean
Sayid if you could explain what you mean that
we’re very nice hello grace chin oh hello grace nice to see you here I
will be going soon I can’t believe how quickly this lesson has gone today if a
person is going the wrong way we can say that they are heading in the direction
that they shouldn’t be so we might tell a person that you are going the wrong
way you are heading in the wrong direction you are going the wrong way
you have to turn around you do what you are going the wrong way no you are going the wrong way direction
and appearance we can also describe things in certain ways from their
appearance the direction of an object the wrong way up so for example this is
the wrong way up it is upside down it is the wrong way up now it is the right way up so the wrong
way up means something is upside down it is the wrong way up and just to prove it this is upside down this is the right
way up so upside down is direction it refers to the position of an object
whether it is the right way or the wrong way something is upside down so
direction can also refer to the way something appears as well what if
something is inside out inside out again we are talking about the appearance of
something perhaps you put on your clothes maybe you put your t-shirt on
your body you wear it but then suddenly you realize that it is inside out so the
inside of your t-shirt is on the outside so you’ve put your t-shirt on inside out
inside out another way of describing this something is inverted inverted so
maybe it is inside-out or maybe it is the wrong way round as if you are
looking in a mirror so when you look in the mirror you are seeing an inverted
image so something that is inverted is the wrong way round it has been turned
around for example your reflection in the mirror is inverted or we can say
reversed so something has been first it is the wrong way round it’s
