In this funny interview with Ellen

We see Scarlett Johanson and brie Larson talk about their experience working on the Avengers and game movie together

You will learn some practical vocabulary and expressions for meeting people and telling stories

By the way, if you're new here, you will first watch the clip with subtitles in English

Then we will teach you all the most important vocabulary

pronunciation and cultural context before moving on to the next clip

Finally, you will test everything you learned by watching all the clips without subtitles and answering some quiz questions

Hey you -

How long did you know each other before this movie got underway? Yeah. Yes. We did. Where did you meet?

And how long have you known each other? I want to hear the whole story

Would you text each other did you hang out you? Did you don't remember how we met I do. I thought you had me

At dinner

No, yes, we did. Clearly. I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care

We are dinner on New Year's Eve. We work together. Oh

My god, oh my god

Because I just felt like I was basically a glorified extra and you were Scarlett Johansson

So I was like, wow, what movie noticed your brain I know

You're not a glorified actor. We don't yeah, we did this movie called Don John that was directed by Joseph gordon-levitt, and we did

Hey you two

How long did you know each other before this movie got underway, if something as an event or process is underway

That means it is in progress

It is currently happening

Ellen is referring to the Avengers and game movie and asking if Scarlett and Bree had met before production was underway

Example the preparations for the party are already underway. Yeah. Yes. We did. Where did you meet?

And how long have you known each other? I want to hear the whole story

Did you text each other did you hang out to text is to send a text message you your phone?

Okay, so I met this girl on the train and I texted her what's up. She texted. Hey

Exclamation point to hang out with somebody is a very common phrasal verb meaning to spend some time with somebody in a particular place

without doing anything specific other than talking I

Miss hanging out with you

We still hang out not like we used to remember you and me used to be inseparable

To hang out can also be used to vaguely describe that you're spending time doing something

For example, I'm just gonna hang out at home and read

Anyway, you don't feel like being alone tonight Joey and Chandler are coming over to help me put together mine my new furniture

yes, and we're very excited about I

Think I'm just gonna hang out here tonight. It's been a long while sure okay

Hey, I hope you're enjoying the lesson so far

So every single week we help learners like you understand fast speaking natives with an alkene lost without me some the jokes and without subtitles

Saravana said that since they joined their fluency and pronunciation

Have improved. So if you want to be able to do that, too

Then I highly recommend you hit that subscribe button and the bell down below to not miss a single one of our new lessons

Where did you meet and how long have you known each other?

I want to hear the whole story from this simple common phrase you can learn quite a lot

First we see two words that English learners use incorrectly all the time

Meet and know to meet someone means that you are knowing them for the first time

You have never talked to them before if you want to refer to the first time you were introduced to your girlfriend

It would be incorrect to say for example, I knew my girlfriend at a party rather

You should say I met my girlfriend at a party if you know someone it means that you have already met them at some point

In the past to continue with the same example. I have know my girlfriend for five years

Furthermore we can use the expression get to know to refer to that you begin to know someone on a more intimate level

For example, I really got to know my girlfriend when we travelled across Europe together

We had so much time to talk and learn about each other

Scarlet and Brie might say that they met a long time ago or that they have known each other for a long time

But that they only got to know each other while working on Avengers endgame

Where did you meet and how long have we known each other?

I want to hear the whole story now if we look at the grammar of what Allen said we can clear up

Another common doubt with the difference between the simple past and the present perfect

In brief we use the simple past tense to talk about a finished action in the past

We use the present perfect tense to talk about something that happened in the past, but it's still true now

So although there are few exceptions

It would be incorrect to say meet in the present. Perfect

Because it is something that happens one time in the past

You do not continue meeting someone and in the same way

it would be incorrect to use no in the simple past because you do not stop knowing someone this is why Ellen says

Where did you meet?

And how long have you known each other

If you can remember just this one sentence it will help you avoid these extremely common mistakes

Can you think of other examples with a simple past and present perfect?

Practice your English by writing them in the comments below and seeing what your fellow learners have said. You don't remember how we met

I do

At dinner

No, yes, we did clearly. I it made an impression on me

But somebody else didn't care if somebody or something makes an impression on you. They have caused a strong

memorable effect on you, which you will later remember positively about

But happy Halloween you crazies

My class loves me I am really making an impression on those guys if you make a bad impression then someone would remember you negatively

scarlet is saying the meeting with Bri for the first time always a very nice experience and one that she certainly

Remembers, she sarcastically adds as somebody else that is Bri didn't care about it since she can't remember anything about it

Hey, would you like to be able to understand fast speaking natives like scarlet and Bri without getting lost well?

Clearly I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care by the way

did you notice how she connects the words and and

Impression it made an impression on me. It made an impression on me

This is exactly how NATO's pronounce words starting with a vowel sound when they come after the article and check out these other examples

We owe Lily an apology. Yeah

I'm a little more than just a pretty blonde girl with an ass. That won't quit. I can't believe this this is incredible

I mean you just wanted a Husker

in fact

this rule of

Connected speech can be applied to most cases of a word

Finishing with an end sound that is followed by another word starting with a vowel sound for example

I

can imagine

I'm sorry, all the first-class seats are taken that couple got the last two you see if we've gone around them

Like I said, then she would've given us those tickets. Damn it

When is it

Now, let's try and repeat after Scarlett while also practicing pronouncing the word impression correctly

It made an impression on me. It made an impression on me

Clearly I it made an impression on me

But somebody else didn't care we're dinner on New Year's Eve New Year's Eve is the last day of the year in the Gregorian calendar

That is December 31st and Eve is the period or the day before a holiday or any date or event

For example in a lot of countries Christmas is mostly celebrated on December

24th which is actually Christmas Eve another example, the president went on TV to give an air view on the eve of her visit China

At dinner

No, yes, we did. Clearly. I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care

We are dinner on New Year's Eve. We work together. Oh

My god, oh my god

Shame on you is an idiomatic expression used to say that someone should feel very sorry or ashamed for doing something wrong

This is helping your career, oh I thought you wanted to be an actor not the creator of crazy lawsuit game

And shame on you you should know better Joey needs to work

Come on, because I just felt like I was basically a glorified extra and you were Scarlett Johansson

so this is like wow an

Extra is a person who plays a character in a film who normally does not have a speaking role and who is usually a part

Of the scene for example in a crowd like you can see here

Brie means that she felt more like a glorified extra in that movie production

Meaning that although she had the status of being called an actress when compared to a star such as Scarlett Johansson

She thought she only had the qualities or relevance of an extra

so basically when you collocate

Glorified with a noun that indicates insignificance or relevance such as extra you are giving the idea that the person is more insignificant

Than what their position represents

Example, I don't understand why people pay so much for limousine rides. I think it's really just a glorified taxi

We did this movie called Don John that was directed by Joseph gordon-levitt, and we did

If you're an actress or actor to do a scene is to shoot and be part of a scene

I

Just want to say how wonderful I think you are you're not the Phantom is dying. Are you

I'm Joey Tribbiani. We did a scene together yesterday

Yes, it is cuz people have been waiting for a long time and it people go there's tattoos

I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right. Well - mark cuz he chickened out

Yeah, that's right mark you check it out

but it's like they're kind of like a sort of like an Avengers symbol with a little kind of in a oh

There's whose is that that's Roberts. I think is that a pile of hair a butt. That's gross

What is yeah, why does it go like wait, wait - take that

Why are you so much hair on the inside of his for nuts? That's a lot of hair on the inside of the forum

Kim

Yes, it is cuz people have been waiting for a long time and people go there's tattoos

I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos

Ellen is referring to how the cast of Avengers that is the stars in the movie all went to get new tattoos

I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right

well - mark has he chickened out in this case - means the same as except for

Example tell me the story again. Mine. Is that boring part in the middle? I?

Wish men could have children on their own like seahorses you want kids?

Maybe I've kind of lately been thinking about the whole wife and kids thing

Just - the wife you could always go it alone. I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right

well - mark has he chickened out - chickened out is an

Informal phrasal verb that means to decide not to do something because you're too frightened or scared

Example I was going to go bungee jumping but I chickened out at the last second

When you see Lily, would you give her that note because I wanted to talk to her at the memorial

but well, I pictured her getting mad at me the way you

me and like chickened out so

I wrote her that number would you give it to her place?

So Scarlett is saying that everyone got the specific new tattoo

Except for Mark Ruffalo who according to her was afraid of doing it and decided not to I know that you all have given yourselves

Tattoos for that right? Well - mark because he chickened out here

We can hear another interesting case of linking and connected speech notice how the D and chickened appears to connect with the word out

Making it sound like doubt chickened out. Well - mark has he chickened out because he chickened out

No, let's try and repeat after Scarlett. Well - mark because he sure can

Well - mark cuz he chickened out this is actually something that happens very often with phrasal verbs in English listen to these other examples

Okay, you you make sure Monica does not find out. Okay?

I give up you guys. I don't know what I'm gonna do with this thing

Hey mom, if you're at the store later

Could you pick up some ice we bought a hibachi together and then he ran off and got married and things got pretty ugly

If you're interested in mastering connected speech you should check out the free mini course that I told you about

Linked at the top and in the description below

Yeah, that's right mark you check it out

but it's like they're kind of like a sort of like an Avengers symbol with a little kind of in a

Symbol is a sign shape or object that is used to represent something else

For example brand logos normally have symbols he or she's talking about the Avenger symbol which most of the original cast got tattooed

Whose is that? That's Roberts. I think is that a pile of hair a butt. That's gross. What is it?

No, a pile of something is a large number of things that are put one on top of another

for example a pile of stones

Gross is and adjectives that can be informally used to describe somebody or something. That looks disgusting

Or unpleasant because it makes you feel sick. I

Tasted Jen's milk and Ross freaked out

Why'd you freak out because it's breast milk

It's gross

My breast milk is gross

No, Carol, there's nothing wrong with it. I just I just don't think breast milk is for adults

In the clip they are talking about what seems to be a pile of hair on the floor seen in the photo

They're looking at like we have to take that back. Why do you get so much hair on the inside of his florets?

That's a lot of hair on the inside of the forearm

The forearm is the lower part of the arm as seen here

The inside of the forearm is the area that is normally facing down or backwards on the same side of the palm of the hand

As you can see here

Robert Downey jr

Had to shave the inside of his forearm to get the tattoo

And the hair wondering why he had so much hair on that area in

American culture tattoos are more common than ever. What do you think about tattoos? Would you ever get one like scarlet?

Johansson, practice your English by joining the discussion down in the comments below

Hey, I'm sure you already realized that interviews are a really fantastic way to improve your comprehension with natural conversations

So be sure to check out all of our interview lessons with this playlist

But then fans have tattoos of all of you that there's some crazy tattoos Oh hands have gotten

Yeah, like the entire back. I've seen some of the entire back. Yeah, there's one we'll look once

Oh, no, wait a second on a hand

Back yeah, that looks like the Bride of Chucky did

Yep, that lease is oh

Snap that's my resting fear. Yeah

That looks vignette, I know that was not bad. I mean that's beautiful what's in the middle of my forehead. Oh

Nothing yet. It's someone's mole. That's now in there

Wow, my nose looks crazy. Oh

My that's not bad. What's the weirdest thing that you've seen? That was really merchandise. Look hot in that one Wow

I mean

I feel like a new sense of pressure like as a person to like not be a giant

embarrassment to someone because that's gonna be a lot of work to cover up if yeah, I

Think it looks good. I like it

But then fans have tattoos of all of you that if there's some crazy tattoos Oh hands have gotten yeah

Like the entire back I've seen some of the entire back. Ellen is referring to a person's back

That is the large area of the human body below the head and above the legs

Were you surprised that somebody would get a tattoo of her that would take up a person's entire back?

Yeah, that looks like the Bride of Chucky

Chucky is the popular fictional character that appears in the horror film series child's play

The Bride of Chucky is another character from that film series

Scarlet is saying that that that two version of Bree seen here actually looks a lot like the Bride of Chucky

That looks like the Bride of Chucky. Oh

Snap that's my resting face

Yeah, I know

We just heard brie and Scarlet say a few slang and idiomatic expressions that looks like the Bride of Chucky did

Get out of here is used to express disbelief or surprise

It is also very common to hear it when somebody is receiving very good news. Oh

Hey, Joey, Tribbiani. I know I am a big fan of yours

I

Used to have scheduled my classes so I could watch dr. Drake ramoray on days of our lives. Oh

Snap or just snap is also an exclamation of surprise and

Sometimes use jokingly when reacting to somebody else being insulted

If you say that something is bananas you mean that it is very silly or crazy

So I showed Marshall that Lily's argument with bananas and now he'll never have to watch another dish

If a person is going bananas that can also apply it they're very excited because of pleasure anger or another

Emotions resting face is a facial expression of an individual who is relaxed resting or not expressing any particular emotion

however, she is probably referring to it being her resting bitchface which is when a person's resting face actually unintentionally looks

Like if they were angry

annoyed or irritated

Even though they are not feeling any of those

Emotions here is another great example of this from an interview with Ellen and comedian Amy Schumer. I

Learned I learned that my resting face is just a scowl. It's just

That bad, I mean that's beautiful what's in the middle of my forehead the forehead is the part of the face above the eyebrows

It's someone's mole that's now a

Mole is a small dark permanent spot or lump on a person's skin

Scarlett is saying that it's tattoo incorporated the mole, which means that the mole is now part of the tattoo

what's funny here is that the mole looks similar to a dot that was intentionally placed there and

Looking a lot like a bindi a decorative colored dot traditionally worn on the center of the forehead by some Eastern cultures

My nose looks crazy

What's the weirdest thing that you've seen that was really good

And I look hot in that one hot is an informal way to say that somebody is sexually attractive Wow

I mean

I feel like a new sense of pressure

Like as a person to like not be a giant embarrassment to someone free means that seeing all those people having tattoos of her actually

Makes her feel the responsibility not to disappoint or embarrass them for having her displayed on their body

I mean

I feel like a new sense of pressure

like as a person to like not be a giant embarrassment to someone because that's gonna be a lot of work to cover up if

yeah to cover things up would be to hide something and prevent others from seeing it or

In this case from seeing three in the tattoo

We can also use this more figuratively to talk about information or something that happened. For example a government cover-up

Hey you two

How long did you know each other before this movie got underway? Yeah. Yes. We did. Where did you meet?

And how long have you known each other? I want to hear the whole story did

You text each other. Did you hang out you did you don't remember how you

Don't remember how we met I do I thought you had me

At dinner no, yes, we did. Yeah clearly. I it made an impression on me, but somebody else didn't care we

We are dinner on New Year's Eve, we work together. Oh my god good. Oh my god

Bad

Because I just felt like I was basically a glorified extra and you were Scarlett Johansson, so I was like, wow what my

What movie noticed your brain I know what movie you're not a glorified actor

We did this movie called Don John that was directed by Joseph gordon-levitt, and we didn't leave. Oh

Man there's tattoos. I know that you all have given yourselves tattoos for the right. Well - mark cuz he chickened out

Yeah, that's right mark you chickened out but it's like they're kind of like a sort of like an Avengers symbol with a little kind

Of in a oh, there's whose is that that's Roberts. I think is that a pile of hair a butt. That's gross

What is yeah, why does it get like wait, wait - take that

Why do you have so much hair on the inside of his four months? That's a lot of hair on the inside of the forearm

Come on Burke
