How to think in english not in your mother language

In common, you often hear people said that: Don't translate from mother language into english
if you translated into english like, you'll get into trouble:

- If you translated it into english , these sentences are incorrect in english. Why? He he , of course. The grammar or structure in english is often different in your native language. Let me give you an example:
  Cái đầm đen này đẹp thiệt , you try to translate it into english : The dress back is beautiful, it's wrong, you must say: The back dress is so beautiful. 
  Nói thì lúc nào chẳng dễ hơn làm, you try to translate it into english : Speaking is always easier than do, ố ồ... again, you get wrong sentence. You should say: said easier than done. 
   You see that, the english sentence is more simple, and it sounds naturally than your translated sentence

- You will take too much time to think and translate when you're in conversation. You often pause, hesitate while you're talking. You can't speak fluently

^_^ But How to think in english without translating???/

You're lucky, cause Antclub going to share you the way to think in english without translating. He he Here we go:

Do it step - by - step process:
First level:  Thinking in single english words

For example: when you listen a song, let think of words like:
      Song, singer, girl band, boy band, music, sing, line, lyrics,......

When you watch TV, or movie, let think of words like:
    Movie, dramma, film, cartoon, action movie, actress, actor, director, camera, Television, Starmovie channel, eposide, season.....

When you meet a people, think of words like:

    Hair, long hair, blond hair, eyes, face, nose, mouse, lip, eyeline, beautiful, pretty, nice, gentle, thin, fat, big, tall, short.....

During the day, try to think of english words whenever you see, hear, or do something and you imagine the meaning in your head when you think of these words. 

2nd level:  Thinking in english sentences

For example, when you listen a song, let think of sentences.

The singer is very beautiful
Im addicted this song
I listen this song over and over
My friend sing this song very well

Or when you're watching movie, think:
The actor is so manly
He has blond hair
He is playing football.....

Try to make habit of thinking in english sentences no matter what that sentence is very simple or complicated
Just practice and develop this habit, you'll achieve at a surprise way.

Level 3:  Thinking in english every time you speak your native language

After level 2, whenever you speak in your mother language, try to think of how to say it in english.
For example:  You're going to hang out with your friends
You may think: How can i get there? What time will we hang out? Where we will go? waitting for them. They're always unpunctual.....
If you don't sure about that sentence is right or wrong, let check it out in dictionary, on Hellochao website, or on google. ^_^, or ask your teacher. 

Even though you are only thinking and not speaking, you still develop your english. If you didnt know how to speak it, check dictionary then practice to speak it in your thinking, and speak it louder. You will develop your speaking skill in any everyday situation fluently and naturally. 

Level 4:  "mental practice"

You do mental practice exercise in your head, or speak it out. Try to telling a story whenever you have time. Example while you're waitting for elevator, you can tell a story in your head, you're only thinking not speaking so that's okay, don't worry about people around you. 
Or when you do exercise you can tell a story in your head in english or speak not only think ^_^

Speaking English- Bad Habit Topic

Do you wanna break Bad Habits?

1. Hoarding trash

You're lazy to clean trash. So pls, take out of trash at least once a week 

2. Eating out as often

When you live alone, you're being too lazy to cook for yourself and you often eat out. You often pick up meal on your way home from work. Trust me, you'll eat it all and you'll be regrets. 

Listen Audio  here: Eating out very often

3. You often buy a lot of foods but you don't eat it all before it expires
4. You spend too much time in front of TV

5. Skipping breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If your entire breakfast comprises one cup of rushed coffee and a toast, then you're setting yourself up for an unhealthy future. This will affect your digestive system. Besides, it will also harm your energy reserves and negatively affect your metabolism. If you skip your breakfast, you are likely to eat more during the other meals and this can lead to weight gain. Eileen says - the key to a good breakfast is a balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates.

6. You're becoming an owl 

7. You bite your nails
8. You pick your nose
9. You crack your neck, finger, knuckles, back
10. You click your pen
11. you snap your gum

Do you have any bad habit that you'd like to break?

Cách nói " Em đồng ý " trong tiếng anh - How to say Yes in english

In english, there has a different way to say yes. Some stages you can't not say " yes", you must to say I do. It sounds weird , right? But it's not weird. Now let check it out below to understand how to say yes in english

1. I Do!

When S.O or your future husband asks you that Will you marry me or Let marriged.... something like that. Now you can't say Yes.
Wow if you say Yes in this case, it sounds weird, you should say " I DO"

2. Let’s Do It!

 You use “Let’s do it” when you’re eager to start or you agree with your partner, your colleagus how to deal with this problem.....

3. What Are We Waiting For?

The standard “Yes” of the impatient (and maybe of the compulsive one, but I’m not quite sure about that). This answer literally bury the question and move the focus on the physical action. If you get this type of “Yes” it means the question was superfluous. Instead, you should just move on and start doing things.

4. Hell, Yes

Enthusiastic and passionate, this answer always reminds me of a long dusty road in the desert and a nice bike under the rider. It’s the ultimate expression of freedom, of leaving behind the old version of you and starting over. Every time I hear this answer, I know something fundamentally new will happen.

5. I’m In It

Business-like expression of a partnership.

6. I Was Born For It

“I’m waiting for this question since I was born, dude. Of course, it’s yes. How can it be the other way around?” This “Yes” is always making me smile. Makes me actually visualize the whole process: well, I think I would like to be born for…. that thing! Can we do it? Please? Wow, great, now let’s find some guys to spread the word about it.

7. Of Course

Chilling and kinda polite. This “Yes” goes well with a cup of the and some biscuits. Maybe a little break in the afternoon, around five o’clock, but let’s not push it. Whenever I hear this “Yes” I’m also prepared to hear a “but”. I think this “Yes” is the most “but”-prone from all. Nevertheless, hearing it makes me feel like I’m having some very important negotiation.

8. My Thoughts Exactly

Confirming and validating, this “Yes” is almost a confession. It’s so powerful that I’m sometimes afraid I actually penetrated into the other guy’s mind. I mean, are those really his thoughts? Wow. Whenever I use it, I do it because I really trust the other person or I try to build a more intimate connection. Which is always happening after this type of “Yes”.

9. Are We There Yet?

And that would be actually the “Yes” of the compulsive. I admit I get the shivers when I hear it, although I do know it’s funny. But the confirmation level is so high and the triggered energy seems so available, that I’m almost feeling guilty for not going “there” yet. I also think this is the more validating “Yes” from all.

10. You’ll Lead, I’ll Follow

Any “Yes” expressed in this form will show total trust and confidence from the other part. When it does not show a fine sense of irony too, of course. It’s the most uncertain “Yes” from all. If I hear this, I know that although I’m getting followed, I somehow keep all the responsibility. This “Yes” comes with a little bit of extra caution.

11. Aye, Aye, Sir!

Military-like acceptance. You can’t mistake this one as a disguised “No”, in my opinion. I almost always respond to this “Yes” with a relieving “Dismissed!”, just for the fun of it. And every time I hear it, I’m compelled to continue the discussion in short but strong sentences, also know as orders. The nice thins with orders is that you expect them to be followed, most of the time.

12. Undoubtedly

In case you’re having any doubt, I mean. If you’re hearing this, you’re taking off the veil from a possibly foggy situation and acknowledge total confidence. This “Yes” is coming with the sound of a hammer hitting a nail right in the head. If you know what I mean. I think this “Yes” is the most relieving of all.

13. Always!

You know I do, why are you still asking? It’s also a form of past, present and future commitment. If you hear this, your next question may not be necessary at all. This “Yes” is more than often the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

14. Totally!

Unreserved immersion and acceptance. That “yes” is my favorite, but if you ask me why, I’m not sure I know the answer. Maybe because I am that kind of guy: if I’m in it for something, I simply don’t know the meaning of half, I do it all the way up to the end.

Nói " tôi không chắc nữa, không chắc lắm, theo tôi biết thì, có lẽ là, hình như là vậy.....

Today's our post is about how to express your idea about something you don't really certain, you don't sure.
This below is 7 ways to say uncertainly

1. Perhaps/maybe : có lẽ, có thể ( nó khác với can, could, should: có thể làm, còn perhaps,maybe ý nói dự doán nhưng không chắc lắm)
These two words are used for saying that you are not certain about something, or that something may or may not be true.

He'll arrive tomorrow, Perhap You'll see him tomorrow
I wondered if perhaps he had changed his mind about attending the party.
‘When can you give me an answer?’ ‘I don’t know. Maybe tomorrow.’

2. Probably/possibly  ( có thể - đây là dự đoán, chắc là )  – these two words can confuse even native speakers
probably is used for saying that something is likely to be true, and possibly that it may be true but you are not certain

If house prices are low, it’s probably because there is a lack of demand.
‘Would you consider moving to another country for your work?’ ‘Possibly, I’m not sure.’

3. Apparently ( rõ ràng là - nhưng bạn không chắc chắn )
is used when what you are saying is based on what you have heard, not on what you know is true and therefore fact

Apparently, she resigned because she had an argument with her boss.
There is, apparently, going to be an announcement about the new CEO tomorrow.

4. As far as I know/ as far as I am aware : theo tôi biết thì, theo những gì tôi biết thì 
these two expressions are used when you have partial (incomplete) knowledge of an issue or fact.

No one has complained, as far as I know.
As far as I am aware, the invitations to the party have all been sent.

5. To the best of my knowledge: theo tôi biết thì, theo những gì tôi biết thì  ( khác ở câu 4 ở chỗ: bạn có kiến thức về việc đó, nhưng trường hợp này lại xảy ra khác những gì bạn biết --> bạn không chắc lắm )
This phrase is used for saying that you think something is true, but you are not completely certain. This is quite a formal expression

To the best of my knowledge, no similar book has been published.

6. Not to my knowledge
This is used for saying that you think something is not true, although you are not completely certain:

‘Has the report been sent yet?’ ‘Not to my knowledge.’

7. I imagine/suppose/guess
These are used when you think something is probably true, but you can’t be sure. “Guess” is more frequently used in American English, although you can hear it in British English, too. “Suppose” is more characteristic of British English and is often used in the negative.

I imagine they’ve already left for the airport.
It’s difficult, I imagine, to keep the same enthusiasm for the job after 30 years.
I suppose she must be delighted about getting the job.
I don’t suppose you’d consider staying for another week?
I guess he will want to meet all the team members before the conference.
Please do let me know if there are any other expressions that I haven’t included here.

I hope you found this post helpful. If you did, please share it.

7 different ways you can say I dont Know in English

 Ways to Say “I don’t know”

I’d like to focus on the different ways you can say “Idon’t know” in English.
In life we are at some stage going to have to use this expression, so as variety is the spice of life, using different ways to say “I don’t know” would make your conversation far more interesting and natural.
1. Dunno
This word is used informally and in spoken language, especially by teenagers who don’t want to answer their parents!
‘When do you have to submit this essay?’ ‘Dunno. I can’t remember.’

2. I have no idea/I haven’t a clue/I haven’t the faintest idea
These expressions are used when you have no information and you cannot guess the answer to a question
·         ‘What time does the film start?’ ‘I have no idea. Why don’t you call the cinema?’
·         ‘Would you by any chance know where St James’s Street is?’ ‘I haven’t a clue.Sorry.’
·         ‘Could somebody please explain how this happened?’ ‘I haven’t the faintest idea.

3. How should I know?/Don’t ask me/Search me
These expressions are used when you do not know something and you feel annoyed that someone is asking you about it.
·         ‘Who left this mess on the table?’ ‘How should I know? I’ve only just come home.’
·         ‘What time did she say she was catching her train? ’ ‘Don’t ask me. I’m always the last to know.’
·         ‘Why didn’t he ask you for the keys?’ ‘Search me. I’m not a mind reader.’

4. Who knows?/It’s anyone’s guess
These are used for saying that you don’t know something because it is impossible for anyone to know it:
·         ‘Will they ever find the missing aircraft?’ ‘Who knows? The search been going on for such a long time now.’
·         ‘How the situation will develop from here is anyone’s guess.’

5. Your guess is as good as mine
This is used for saying that you know as little about something as the person who asked you about it
·         ‘Do you think we will be able to book the restaurant for Friday?’ ‘Your guess is as good as mine.’

6. Not as far as I know
·         We use this to say that something may be true, but you do not have enough information to know whether it is or not
·         ‘Has Clive left the company? I haven’t seen him for ages.’ ‘Not as far as I know, but I haven’t seen him recently either.’
7. It beats me
This is a rather informal expression to say that you do not know or understand something. “It” is often left out.
·         ‘Why did he do such a stupid thing?’ ‘It beats me’

The way to say " other time "- Cách nói để khi khác

G: Hey , This weekend we have a trip to go to Giang Dien rapid, would you wanna join with us?
K: Oh, that sounds great, I'd love to but i can't
G: well, maybe another time

Instead of "another time" you can say:

- ( at ) some time

- ( at ) other time

For example:

- I'll go on another day
- I'll take you to dinner at other time
- Sorry I have to go right now, meet you some other time
- I think it's too late, i will come some other time
- Another time i will take you to expensive restaurant honey,
- I'll will come over to you at other time

In speech, " at " is usually left out
