And everyone and welcome back to English with Lucy.
Today I have a very important lesson for you. We’re going to talk about what you should say if somebody is rude to you in English. There’s nothing worse than somebody insulting you or being rude to you in a language that is not your own. Well, today, I’m going to bring you seven comebacks, seven things. that you can say in response to different rude situations. They are quite sassy. They’ve got a lot of attitude and hopefully they’ll come in very very useful. They are best delivered with a straight face and they are best served very very cold as always. If you are aware of any other particularly clever comebacks. please comment them down below. Let’s help each other out so this video is perfect for improving your vocabulary.
But, if you want to take your listening and your pronunciation even further. I highly recommend the study method of combining reading books with listening to the audiobook version inaudible. Let me explain this method. Take a book that you have already read in English or a book that you would like to read in English. I have lots of good recommendations in the description box below and read this book whilst listening to the audiobook. Reading alone will not help you with your pronunciation English is not a phonetic ly consistent language. So, the way you might see a word is not necessarily the way you pronounce it. If you listen to a word as you read it. Your brain will start to make connections and the next time you see that word you’ll know how to say it. And the next time you hear that word you’ll know how to spell it.
So, number one what should you say if somebody gives you an unwanted opinion? Maybe they comment on the way you’re dressed or what you do for a living or your choice about marriage or the fact that you’re single or the fact that you don’t have children yet. All very annoying things that tend to happen at family parties. Well, a great way to respond to this if somebody gives you an unwanted opinion is to say. Do you remember when I asked for your opinion? me neither. Oh, so sassy apply ice to the burnt area is that how that meme goes. I hope so. I think that’s a fairly standard way of replying to an unwanted opinion.
Okay, number two. What should you say if somebody is being really ignorant and idiotic? Maybe they are making ridiculous, political statements. Maybe they are really uneducated on a hot topic in the news. They’ve got the wrong end of the stick. They don’t know what they’re talking about and they sound stupid. Well, if somebody’s being very ignorant and idiotic, you can say you have your entire life to be an idiot. So, why not take today off? oh, yes one-nil to you. You just took them down.
Okay, number three. What should you say if somebody is taking advantage of the fact that you are not a native English speaker? That you’re not completely fluent in English? Maybe they’re speaking very quickly. Trying to make sure that you don’t properly understand everything. maybe they’re trying to use big words that they think you don’t know in this situation. If you don’t understand them. But, you would like them to repeat something and you’d also like them to know that you are not happy with how they are treating you. You can say sorry, I didn’t quite catch that. I don’t speak utter crap obviously. The word crap, you can change or a less family-friendly alternative. But, I quite like my videos to be monetized.
So, craps fine. Number four this situation is kind of similar what should you say if somebody is using a lot of big words to sound intelligent, to try and confuse you to make themselves seem better than you. but, let’s just face it. It’s so annoying when somebody just reels off a load of big words. Trying to appear more intelligent than they are. how can you shoot them down. what should you say? Well one thing you could try is, it’s a lot of fun. Watching you try to fit your entire vocabulary into one sentence. Ouch burn you’ve taken them down with one shot.
Number five, what could you say if somebody’s being very closed-minded? Maybe they’re being racist, sexist, sizeist, all of the ist’s. Maybe they’ve insulted a group or subgroups that you care about. Maybe they’re just being unwilling to accept that. We live in a modern society. Maybe, they’re just being doofuses. well, you can say if only closed minds came with closed mouths. Oh, sorted adios close-minded person.
Number six. What should you say if somebody keeps interrupting you? Somebody that just keeps butting in mid-sentence. Obviously what they have to say is much more important than anything. You have to say this can be particularly frustrating if you aren’t a native speaker. Because, it’s almost them saying I don’t have time to listen to you. Because, you’re too slow and it can be a real confidence knock in a place. I used to work there, was a guy he spoke very grammatically correct English. But, it took him a little bit longer to get a sentence out and there was this other girl that would interrupt him and finish his sentences all the time and it annoyed him. It annoyed me, and I wish I had this following comeback to deal with her. If somebody keeps interrupting you. You can say, oh I’m sorry did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of your, ah give them a few seconds to process it all in their head and then I guarantee there will be no more interruptions.
Potentially the last one number seven is, what you should say to somebody if they’re just being a bit nuts? If they’re behaving in a very weird and maybe inappropriate bit crazy way. Just saying you’re nuts. you are doesn’t quite cut it. I think we should go for something a bit more direct a bit more cutting. How about this? I’m not sure what your problem is, but I imagine it’s very hard to pronounce. I’m gonna have such a cringefest editing this video. I think that would work. Don’t you side no make sure they don’t actually have a problem. Because, that would be very hurtful. Right guys, that’s it for today’s lesson. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you take everything, I said with a pinch of salt a slice of lime and a shot of tequila.
