I’m still having my lunch so this is actually my lunch you can now see how I
nourish myself before my live stream begins so today I have a lovely sandwich
with salmon and also butter and pepper inside so there is some lovely salmon in
the middle so you can have a little sneak peek into my private world by
having a look at what I eat so are you interested in that does it interest you
so there is my lunch half eaten so when we say that something is half eaten it
means I haven’t finished it I have eaten half of it so this is half
eaten here we go yes we are coming towards the end of
October but don’t worry there are still a few more days left before I say
goodbye to October so I hope you are happy today in fact you should be happy
do you know why because it’s Friday I’m overly just broadcasting 280 people
tear me I got up at 8 o’clock this morning to do this I’d been working
since 8 o’clock this morning and now I’m talking to 7 to 8 people that’s not many
is it please tell a friend tell anyone tell your neighbour tell the person who
lives down the road who you don’t really like tell them all I am with you every
single day during October live English every day Monday to Friday no one else
has ever done this no one ever on YouTube has ever done a
month of live lessons every day I think I might be the first person to do it but
who cares YouTube’s algorithms don’t care clearly did you see a couple of
days ago on the news apparently Google have developed the first quantum
computer so now they will be able to use their algorithms much quicker than
before to make sure people don’t see your videos that’s good news for all of
us so thank you very much Google once again for making sure that no one gets
to find out about my live streams all my lessons it’s really kind of you thank
you very much outside it’s raining today unfortunately it is raining outside the
rain is falling it is a very dull and miserable day but I can promise you now
I can promise you that I don’t feel dull or miserable I’m okay
don’t worry in fact I know what will cheer you up let’s have a look at the
birds shall we so here are the birds in my garden earlier today oh very nice so
there earlier today the birds were all busy
reading now at this time of year there is very little for the birds to eat
because many of the insects have disappeared
so the birds have all come back to my garden they have returned and there you
can see a selection of birds there is a green Finch in the middle also gold
finches I think also maybe a couple of blue tits as well so there that was
filmed this morning however right now let’s have a look what’s happening now
in the garden so this is now and as you can see there isn’t much going on it’s
very quiet out there I must point out that mr. Steve is here today in the
house he won’t be on the livestream however he is in the house and today I
was a little bit late because I was busy preparing mr. Steve’s food so I had to
make mr. Steve something to eat because he’s at home today he’s busy here in his
office so I had to make a sandwich not only for me but also for mr. Steve as
well and that’s the reason why I’m a little bit late today I apologize so

Theo hello mr. Duncan because of you we learn
English as a living organism where every single part counts many thanks
Thank You Theo for that very interesting very deep and profound for a Friday I
think so Rosso is here hi mr. Duncan hi everybody
your sandwich looks delicious yes it looks delicious but if I leave it
any longer in this hot studio I think it will go very stale so if something is
stale it means it has gone bad or with bread it means it has gone hard so you
can’t really eat it so bread will go stale if you leave it out in the open
air so my sandwich is slowly going stale ana says I am interested in daily life
subjects well I think so well this is something I try to do on my live streams
every day I always try to take you into my life the things I do every day and
quite often I will teach you some English at the same time isn’t that good
do we have a deal do we have a deal ok that sounds good to me
a couple of words I want to show you now and these are words that many English
learners confuse with each other the words are bored and boring so bored is
the feeling of having nothing to do you feel as if you want to do something but
you don’t know what to do you have a lot of spare time on your hands so you feel
bored of course being bored can also be the
effect of watching something that is not interesting or something that is not
interesting to watch or follow it makes you feel bored then we have boring if
something is boring then the thing is making you feel bored so the feeling is
bored the thing is boring I feel bored because of this boring
lesson this lesson is boring I feel bored so a lot of people confuse these
two words quite often they will use this word when they want to say this word so
I feel bored mr. Duncan your lessons are never boring I hope so another couple of
words we can use are tedious something that is boring is tedious you are
watching something that is boring something is tedious also laborious if
you are doing something that takes a long time to carry out maybe a very slow
and tedious job that the job is tedious the job or the thing you have to do is
laborious it takes a long time to do and you might describe it as a boring job or
a boring task something that makes you feel bored is boring it is tedious it is
laborious so I hope that helps you there back to
the live chat hello mr. Duncan thanks very much for
teaching us I am always watching your channel because we can watch the live
stream on time I hope so I hope you don’t mind joining me every day during
October I hope it hasn’t been too boring for you no one else is doing this not
another person no one else on YouTube is with you every single day in October
Fernando is here hello Fernando Belarusian Belarusian is giving us more
information about her mother oh I’m sorry to hear that your mother is still
not well we will have to wait so that is the latest from Belarus eeeh
concerning her mother and once again can I send you my best wishes to you in your
family grace chin is here I live in Kuala Lumpur
I know kuala lumper very well I’ve been there a few times
I I know Malaysia very well I’ve being there many times especially during the
1990s I went to Malaysia a lot Rossa says TGIF is used on Friday yes we often
say thank God or thank goodness it’s Friday so most people feel quite
relieved and happy when Friday arrives because it means that weekend is about
to begin don’t forget I am with you tomorrow so
you can see on Saturday I am with you at a slightly different time 12 p.m. midday
on Saturday and then Sunday we return to the normal time of 2 p.m. UK time
however this is something I mentioned yesterday I’m not going to mention it
again because it’s very complicated and my brain might explode
so on Sunday very early on Sunday morning we will put our clocks back one
hour as British summer time ends and we go back to the old Greenwich Mean Time
GMT whoa I’m bored already with this subject so what will happen is for some
people my livestream will appear one hour later so if you normally watch me
at 11 o’clock at night you will find that I will actually appear at midnight
however some people will also be turning their clocks back so for you there will
be no difference but it will feel as if my livestream is at a different time
however on Sunday it will still be 2 p.m. UK time so whatever happens with
our clocks whatever happens I will always be here at 2 p.m. UK time if it’s
British summer time or Greenwich Mean Time Wow well I can’t believe I’ve had
to say all that do you know who I feel sorry for I feel sorry for people who
work in clock shops because they have to change all of the clocks that they have
or maybe a person who has to look after all of the clocks in a clock museum they
have to go around and change all the clocks they have to turn them back one
hour apparently in Buckingham Palace they
have over a hundred clocks in Buckingham Palace where the Queen lives so imagine
how long it takes to turn all of those clocks back all of the Queen’s servants
I don’t think the Queen does it I can’t imagine the Queen getting up on a chair
to change her clocks I just could just don’t see that happening to be honest I
really don’t know sir is here also Meeker
in Sicily it is awful in fact I’m at home because the schools are closed for
Red Alert is that the weather is the weather that bad Wow
so in the south of Italy and round Sicily it sounds as if the weather is
quite bad oh dear stay safe if the weather is bad where
you are stay indoors and watch me is that a good idea I’m not sure hello Rosa
also sweetness happy birthday to your sister yes my sister it’s her birthday
today she is another year older I won’t say how old because I can’t because she
will come round and slap my face until it’s cherry red she really will hello
Theo happy many returns for Duncan’s sister thank you very much we are all
making history with mr. Duncan and his livestream every day during October can
you believe it well it looks as if the birds have arrived oh let’s have a look
quickly yes there are some birds on the bird feeder can you see them so this is
now a live view in the garden and yes you can see some birds not many I think
most of them have already done their feeding
they’ve already been fed so there they are would you like to see something
really really crazy and unusual ok then here we go then well first of all today
we are talking about one particular subject after half past 2 we are talking
about sleep and dreams and you know what I like to do when I go to sleep at night
I like to imagine something nice something that makes me feel really
comfortable and cozy in my bed I like to count sheep yes
so today’s big subject is sleep and there you can see a little sheep having
a sleep in my garden and that was something I filmed this morning do you
want to see something really crazy once again this is all about sheep and
this is something I saw this morning from my bathroom window
something very strange was going on at the back of my house so yes there were
some sheep in the garden at the back of the house also there were lots of birds
flying around as well you can see there are some crows so those birds are crows
but can you see what they’re doing they are actually picking picking the flies
off the Sheep and if you think that strange take a
look at this watch this so the magpie is actually going onto the
sheep it’s climbing onto the sheep and it’s actually picking the small insects
off the sheep but the strange thing is the Sheep doesn’t seem to mind it seems
to actually enjoy what is happening so there you can see something that
happened at the back of my house I was so curious to find out what it was that
I decided to set my camera up and film it so there you can see a magpie doing
something very unusual it is picking the insects off the Sheep oh I think the
Sheep doesn’t like it anymore I think the Sheep has had enough it looks as if
the Sheep is trying to sleep but the magpie keeps disturbing it so isn’t that
unusual what a strange thing to see in your garden or at the back of your house
so there is a magpie I think he’s about to fly away ok mr. magpie off you go so
I hope you enjoyed that something very unusual there hello – @ef hello also –
Cristina the Sheep is calm it looks very strange I agree with you it does look
rather unusual I think so Emmet is here how are you mr. Duncan I’m
ok not too bad thank you Louie Louie says I think thank God it’s
Friday also comes from the series Peter Gunn
it’s a song also from The Art of Noise yes oh the art of noise I know the art
of noise very well they were a combination of producers and musicians
who were around in the early 1980s so I know them very well I remember a lot of
their very strange songs speak John says I am an English teacher
hello hello to another English teacher speak John I am an English teacher in
Brazil my city is Fortaleza and I love your classes big hug thank you very much
thanks a lot and good luck with your lessons mr. Mario is here watching in
Sao Paulo also quite a loop yes we are talking all about sleep and dreams lots
of words and expressions that are connected to this particular subject
that is what we are doing in a little while right now we are going to take a
short break because we are going to have a look at something a little different
something different we’re going to have a look at an excerpt from one of my full
English lessons a lot of people ask about my full English lessons there is a
playlist there are lots of video lessons on my YouTube channel and now you are
going to take a look at an excerpt from one of them right now it would appear that more and more
people are unable to concentrate are unable to concentrate for long periods
of time due to due to them having short attentions short attention spans do you know someone who is snooty
have you ever met a snooty person the word snooty means to behave with an air
of superiority to be snobbish and arrogant is to be snooty a snooty person
believes they are better than others their view is that they have a better
lifestyle than most other people a person with money might behave in a
snooty way they look down on those who have less wealth or appear to live in a
lower class than them a snooty person tends to be arrogant and stuck-up we can
describe a snooty person as a snob this person behaves in a snobbish way they
have a high-and-mighty attitude they are toffee-nosed supercilious pompous
haughty conceited and quite often arrogant it’s time to take a look at another
buzzword a buzzword is a sentence or word that is in common use during a
certain time or as seen as being popular today’s buzz word is attention span this
phrase relates to the amount of time a person can concentrate on one thing this
can relate to a task or an activity a person’s attention span is measured by
how long they can concentrate on doing one thing we often talk about the short
attention span of young people the various attractions and distractions
that exist nowadays has led to a belief that people are beginning to develop
short attention spans the advent of instant digital media and online
streaming allows people to view many things within a short space of time it
would appear that these days people grow bored easily as more choices means that
they can swap and change what they are watching in a more convenient way the
term short attention span highlights the inability to concentrate on just one
thing it would appear that more and more people are unable to concentrate for
long periods of time due to having short attention spans it is inevitable that at some point in
your working life you will have to answer to someone who is above you in
status or rank most work environments have some sort of administrative
hierarchy the word hierarchy means chain of command or pecking order from the
lowly to the high up the positions in the workplace tend to follow a typical
pattern from the unpaid intern right up to the senior management somewhere in
that chain you will be placed more often than not most senior management chains
consist of supervisors and managers then right at the top there is the CEO which
stands for chief executive officer there are many ways of describing this person
both formally and informally this person is the boss the top man or
top woman the chief the leader in formal terms include the big man the head
honcho the big cheese the top brass the boss or company owner might be described
as a fat cat this particular name is seen as being negative and derogatory as
it suggests that the boss is wealthy and very powerful the bank is owned and run
by a bunch of fat cats and there it was one of my full English
lessons a few excerpts from one of them I hope you enjoyed that and all of my
lessons are available on my youtube channel hmm as you can see whilst that video was
playing I was eating a little bit more of my sandwich so there was only a
little piece left now will I get to eat this before the end of today’s lesson I
don’t know really because I’m not psychic I can’t see the future who do
you think I am uri geller hello Anna I like I like so
many types of pesto and spaghetti and macaroni oh I believe it’s a special day
today isn’t it a special day for people who like macaroni please tell me more
about it business says fat cat yes a fat cat it is normally a negative word for
the owner of a company or a large organization and quite often they are
seen as being greedy and selfish and only interested in their own things
hello also – Irene hello mr. Duncan and everyone I am late don’t worry as long
as you are here although it is a little bit wet outside shall we have a look
it’s wet it’s miserable and I suppose we could have mr. Steve would you like to
see mr. Steve doing the petal dance would you now we can arrange that right
now so let’s get mr. Steve prepared outside in the garden and he will show
us his world-famous poncho dance but of course I’m not going to let Steve
have all the fun because now I am going to show you my poodle dance I hope you enjoyed that so mr. Steve was
demonstrating his poncho and I was showing you my bit little dents because
it is a wet day here in the UK but don’t worry I am here to chase those gray
skies away it’s live English and I’m with you every day during October 2019
we are talking about a lovely subject today sleep and dream words associated
with this particular subject and there are many many words that we can describe
sleep as many phrases many words that we can use to describe going to sleep there is a little sheep having dreams I
wonder when a sheep goes to sleep does it count human beings because we we
often count sheep to help us get to sleep so that’s what I was thinking of
earlier that’s that’s the road I was going down with that joke so when we
talk about sleep we can say that we fall asleep now sleep is something we all
need they recommend that you should have at least eight hours between 7 & 8 hours
sleep every night and sleep is good for the body in many ways especially this
thing up here sleep is very good for your brain if you stay awake for too
long it is very hard for your brain to cope lots of things start happening in
your brain the wiring and all of the circuits start breaking down the signals
go in the wrong direction you become disorientated and confused so you fall
asleep you need to sleep however they’re all that’s lots of ways there are many
ways of describing sleep for example you nod off oh I like that one nod off if
you nod off it means you fall asleep so you are physically falling asleep you nod off so when you nod off it means you
fall asleep you might say that it is the action of actually falling asleep you
nod off doze off so the word doze can also mean sleep you become tired you
become sleepy you doze off you drift off so you might
drift off to sleep you slowly fall unconscious to be unconscious is to be
asleep like that you drift off you I like this phrase you go bye-byes
you go bye-byes you fall asleep you drift off you nod off you doze off so
there are some ways of describing sleep and also the action of falling asleep as
well some more words that can be used to describe sleep we can have a nap
so quite often when we say nap it means a short sleep so maybe you sleep for a
short period of time so you might go to bed for half an hour
or maybe one hour or maybe just ten minutes you have a nap nap so when we
say nap it means a short sleep you go to sleep for a short period of time and
then the word doze so you can doze you fall asleep maybe you are sitting in
your chair maybe you are still working but perhaps you work at night and you
might have a nap you you might have a doze doze you have 40 winks oh I like
that word I like that phrase very much so if you have 40 winks it means you
have a short sleep you have a rest for a short period of time quite
often you will fall asleep so when you have 40 winks you have a short sleep hit
the hay if you hit the hay it’s the same thing you go to sleep you
go to bed you might feel tired and you may say to someone oh it’s getting late
I think it’s time for me to hit the hay it’s time for me to hit the hay
it’s time to go to bed Valentin asks a very interesting question do you
remember Napster yes I do and I remember Napster
when it was illegal sometimes I would download tunes from Napster so in the
early days of the internet there was a website called Napster and it was very
useful for getting pop music movies all sorts of things from of course it was
all illegal maybe I shouldn’t have said that
I might get arrested the police might come to my house to take me away for
illegal downloading but yes I do remember Napster in the early days I
think it’s a bit like BitTorrent so nowadays we have BitTorrent don’t we so
a lot of people will torrent something ooh you see I do know things that young
people know back to our main subject you have 40 winks you hit the hay you have a
nap you doze some more words that can be used you Zonk out oh I like that one
Zonk out so if you donk it means you fall asleep oh you Zonk out you fall
asleep it’s a great expression that you will often hear the word Zonk or
zonked in American English and British English as well so a lot of people think
that the word Zonk or to be zonked is American English but in fact it is used
in both British English and American English
Zonk out you go to the Land of Nod oh I like that one so if you go to the Land
of Nod you go off to sleep that means you go off in your mind you are
unconscious you go off to the Land of Nod we will often say that about a child
so maybe when a child is falling asleep we will often say that they have gone to
the Land of Nod and of course as we mentioned earlier you fall asleep you
fall asleep so to fall asleep you fall into sleep you fall asleep a person who
is asleep is unconscious all creatures need to sleep most animals need to sleep
it’s some period of time some animals will sleep during the day some animals
will sleep during the night an animal that sleeps during the day and stays
awake during the night is called nocturnal so a nocturnal animal is an
animal that is awake at night for example an owl or bat are nocturnal
creatures some people can you believe it some people are nocturnal so people can
also be nocturnal maybe you have to work at night maybe you work in a factory
where you have to work during the night or maybe you are a security guard in a
factory so you have to work during the night to keep an eye to
the factory so even people can be nocturnal they stay awake during the
night some more words to describe sleeping you can snooze oh I like that
word so again snooze means a short sleep
short brief just for a short moment of time you have asleep so you will snooze
quite often maybe in your bedroom next to your bed you will have an alarm clock
maybe when the alarm rings you will hit the snooze button so quite often an
alarm clock will have a snooze button which allows you to continue sleeping
for a short period of time normally five minutes or ten minutes so to have a
snooze is to have a short sleep for a short period of time or like this one
catnap so if you have a catnap again it is very similar to snooze if you have a
catnap it means you sleep for a short period of time
so you have a catnap you sleep for a short period in the afternoon now this
is something that I I didn’t used to do but nowadays I do in the afternoon I
always like to have a little cat nap in the afternoon so quite often I will go
to bed not in bed but on the bed and I will have a little sleep I will have a
cat nap I like that I like that expression
also you can slumber slumber if you slumber it means you sleep you are
actually in the process of sleeping you are unconscious we talked about a person
slumber there moment of rest they’re sleeping period their slumber drowsiness word a little closer so growls can mean
to be sleepy or to slowly fall asleep but also we can also drowse a person we
can make them feel drowsy so maybe you are doing something that makes a person
feel bored or sleepy so a person might drowse they will go into a light sleep
so they won’t fall asleep completely they were just drowse off or a person
might feel drowsy so when you are drowsy you are feeling sleepy
you are feeling drowsy another expression to mean sleep you can get
your head down so when you get your head down
it means you lie on the bed so your head will be on the pillow or whatever it is
you rest your head on you get your head down so this is another way of
expressing sleep I need to get my head down for half an hour it means I need to
have a sleep you get your head down you hit the sack if you hit the sack
it means you again get on the bed you rest your head and you hit the sack so
you might say oh I’m feeling so tired oh I really need to hit the sack if you hit
the sack it means you go to bed or you go to sleep I think all of this talk of
sleep is sending a lot of people to sleep because it’s very late so we’re so
in some parts of the world at the moment it is very late so maybe you are
starting to fall asleep another way to describe sleeping is to get some Z’s Oh
mr. Duncan we’ve never heard this one before if you get some Z’s
or of course if you are American you will say get some Z’s because the letter
said is Z in British English but here in British English we say Zed you see not Z
so you get some sense you get some Z’s and there you can see lots of them so
when we write the sound of sleeping so when we write it down we will write it
like this so this is what it looks like when a person is sleeping when we have
to write it down so a person is sleeping they are fast asleep
they need to get some jets or Z’s I know I know people always complain about that
they say mr. Duncan why do you keep saying Zed
it isn’t Zed it’s Z but in British English we say is Zed Pedro says I am
asleep right now oh I’m sorry about that Pedro I’m sorry
too make you feel so bored there here we go
with the way a person sleeps so maybe a person is a light sleeper if you are a
light sleeper it means you don’t sleep deeply so when we say deep sleep it
means you are very much unconscious you are really asleep you are fast asleep
you are so sleepy you are so unconscious however if a person is a light sleeper
it means that they don’t sleep deeply it means they are easily disturbed so the
slightest sound or noise around them will wake them up they are a light
sleeper so a person who is a light sleeper
they sleep lightly they don’t go to sleep deeply their sleep is not deep
because they are a light sleeper so some people really do suffer from being a
light sleeper so if you are a light sleeper you will often find that you
can’t get to sleep properly or maybe you will have sleep but it won’t feel as if
you’ve had sleep there we go light sleeper a person who is a light
sleeper is a person who doesn’t sleep deeply they are not completely
unconscious the opposite of that is heavy sleeper so if a person is a heavy
sleeper if a person can be described as a heavy sleeper it means that they sleep
very well they have a deep sleep they are completely unconscious they are a
heavy sleeper they sleep do plea they stay asleep it is very hard to
disturb or wake up a heavy sleeper so some people are heavy sleepers whilst
other people are light sleepers a light sleeper easily wakes up a heavy sleeper
is very hard to wake up sleep is important however there are
certain people who cannot get to sleep unfortunately they stay sleepless or
they are easily disturbed so if you are sleepless it means you can’t get to
sleep unfortunately you can’t get to sleep
you are sleepless you are restless you can’t relax so we say that you have a
sleepless night you are easily disturbed you are sleepless you have a sleepless
night you are easily disturbed maybe your neighbor maybe your neighbor has a
dog that keeps barking at night hmm dear oh I was having a lovely sleep then
until my neighbor’s dog started barking so a person can be sleepless or they can
be easily disturbed by certain things a person who has difficulty sleeping or
maybe they have a condition something wrong with their brain or something they
can’t control so a person might not be able to get to sleep physically this is
something that can happen to many people we can say that you are
and insomniac so when we say insomniac it is a person who cannot sleep so the
insomniac is the person who can’t sleep they suffer from insomnia so insomnia is
the disorder that means you cannot sleep you feel awake you feel Restless maybe
your mind won’t stop working maybe you keep thinking about all sorts of things
you suffer from insomnia you are an insomniac so there are many people who
suffer from this and quite often if you have stress or anxiety
quite often you will also have insomnia as well it is quite often a side effect
of certain illnesses that affect the brain insomnia you are an insomniac you
can’t get to sleep there is another very interesting
disorder something that many people suffer from and some people don’t even
realize that they have it it is this sleep apnea and this is something you
may have heard of or may not have heard of sleep apnea now this is a very
interesting medical term that means a person who stops breathing so they are
breathing normally and then suddenly they stop breathing they don’t hold
their breath they have actually stopped breathing their automatic reflex for a
few moments stops so when you’re asleep quite often you will breathe normally in
your sleep it is one of the things that is controlled by your brain stem so that
will always keep your heart beating and also your lungs drawing in
so sleep apnea is when your lungs stop doing that they stop working for a few
moments and then you might suddenly wake up like that so quite often Sneap sleep
apnea is something that affects many people so a person will stop breathing
whilst they’re asleep and then they will certainly wake up and
the reason why they wake up is because your body is starting to drown in carbon
dioxide so all of the carbon dioxide is building up in your blood so your body
reacts to that it’s almost as if you’re drowning in fact so sleep apnea is the
reflex after your breathing has stopped at night a lot of people suffer from
this many people do and they don’t even realize it in fact I think that I have a
little bit of sleep apnea as well neo zero says you have spelt it wrong no I
haven’t I have not spelt this word wrong that is how you spell the word mmm
naughty naughty so you can spell it in other ways as well so you can leave out
the Oh however in British English this is the
spelling in American English they will leave out the O so actually this is the
correct spelling mmm you thought you got me there didn’t you Christina says I was
on holiday with a friend of mine and realized that he suffered from sleep
apnea my vacation was a nightmare there are many things that can happen whilst
you’re asleep yes many things I made myself laugh then you can talk in
your sleep oh not now darling oh no no I don’t want to know don’t tell the wife

talking in your sleep can get you in a lot of hot water a lot of trouble mr.
Mario is going bye-bye mr. Mario I think mr. Mario wants to have a sleep
see you later so there are many things you can do
whilst you’re asleep you might sleepwalk some people move around whilst they’re
still unconscious so it can happen some people have night
terrors maybe they have a horrible dream or nightmare
and they wake up suddenly screaming and shouting we call those night terrors so
when we say night terror we mean a nightmare that you wake up from in a
panic Theo says you pronounced apnea correctly because it is a Greek word
that means without air yes that’s it Thank You Theo

going into it and as we all know your body needs oxygen to survive or else you
will turn purple and then blue and then white Thank You Berlin thank you very
