      Talking about disabilities is a real issue. So, it is important to know how to address people who suffer from a permanent disability.

      Interesting lesson with very illustrative examples.

      Thanks for sharing all this with us Emma.

      By for now.

      Regino

Atef

The pronounce of the word “deaf” seems a lot with “death”… A few months ago I was playing a game and the character said “I’m blind not deaf”. I’ve been thinking he was saying death but is deaf… O.O

I scored 4 out of 4.that means I’m on the right way to learn english;I’m very happy for reaching this level.I know It’s not the end of the road.but also It’s not the starting of the road.thanks a lot Emma;pleas can I know your openion.

youssef morrocco

    Well done Youssef! I think what you have written is a good reminder for everyone. Learning English is a journey. Everyday, you advance a little and know slightly more than you did before.

    Emma

      Emma, what is the difference between slightly an lightly?
      Can I use both?

      elmarjr

      emma live is a journey

      chakim hamzah

      I do not know when i like you & your lesson as from. Emma.

      generoussailor82

Thank you

daniela

I believe most of the teachers on the site are Canadian. In Canada, there are multiple accents. In general, people west of Quebec have a similar accent, while people from the East Coast of Canada share a slightly different accent.

Canadians have a very similar accent to some American states. Often, when I meet an American, I don’t notice a lot of differences in the way we talk.

Some pronunciations are different though, like ‘about’. Canadians are also famous for saying ‘eh?’.

Emma

    Hi, I like your accent. I understand you very well. I’m from Europe and I’ve been learnig British English in my language course. :)
    Best wishes from Poland (Cracow)!

what’s the difference between “the deaf” and “people who are deaf”? why the first is offensive and the second is correct?

ivan

    Hi Ivan,

    In general, it is better to use what is known as people-first language. People with disabilities want to be identified as people first. If we say the Deaf, we are identifying these people only by their disability. Some think this is dehumanizing.

    There is a good wikipedia article on this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People-first_language

    Emma

      Very interesting comment Emma! great lesson!

      rochaallanc

      Hello Emma! Thank you for the lesson. I think it is pity that we don’t use all these “unacceptable words”. What’s wrong with the word – lame, or disabled, or homo, or black-skinned. In the near future we won’t say – father or mother because people with non traditional orientation very offensive. You will have to say – parent (for mother) and parent (for dad)… This “political correctness” goes to nowhere. We only do the language we speak insipid. The most important thing is to set up comfortable living conditions for disabled people, but not by changing the words’ meaning.

      nick

        Okay, but this lesson is teaching people the words because that is what is generally acceptable now in North America. Once you know what is expected, you can choose to use whichever words you want.

        engVid

Why in modern English people are ashamed using traditional English words. For example lame or dumb? Instead of that they constantly create some Latin origin senseless terms like mobility disability and non-vocal?

ivan

    Ivan,

    I’m glad you’re questioning this. There are many different opinions on these issues and opinions differ as to what is the best way to speak about disability.

    The rationale behind changing the words we use is that words influence our thoughts. As our views on the world change, so does the language we use to describe it.

    The word dumb has a very negative meaning. For example, stupid is a synonym of dumb. If we describe people who can’t speak as dumb, we are insulting their intellect. For instance, although Helen Keller couldn’t speak, she was a very intelligent woman.

    On the other hand, some people feel that North American society is too sensitive on these issues and that we shouldn’t have to be so careful with our words.

    Regardless of what you believe, it’s important to know that if you use the wrong words, there may be consequences, especially in the workplace.

    Emma

thank you so much u are a very nice teacher

Sabuhi

thank you very much .. really its very useful lesson and very important

rezan

    Thank you for your comments everyone. I know this topic isn’t usually discussed in ESL classes. I’d be interested to know if there are specific words you use to talk about disability in your culture. Do you have to be careful with the words you use or are people from your culture less sensitive when talking about disability?

    Emma

      Hi Emma. Im mexican. In our country the use of these words have changed with the time as well. Now there are more respect with people with disbility, however, there are people who still continue using offensive words, like invalid,fo example. Your lesson is great and I really apreciate that people like you make this for ESL. Thanks a lot.

      ISIDRO JIMENEZ

        Thank you for your comment Isidro. It’s unfortunae, but many people here continue to use offensive language when talking about disabilities.

        Emma

Hi Emma

Hi Ms.Emma- Whow do you pronounce ABOUT in Canadian pronunciations?–What is the meaning of “EH” in canada? THANKS

Atef

    Ronnie has a great new lesson on some language unique to Canada. She covers ‘eh’ in it.

    Emma

Hi Emma

This topic you taught to us is very important but it was very confused

CREBIO

    Hi Crebio,

Hi Emma….
How are you??
It’s your great lesson….
okay take care.

awais

Hi Emma,
I’ve understood almost all about this topic, except “to have a learning disability”.
Please, would U like to tell me the exact meaning? So that I can understand what happens to Tom Cruise.
By the way, I’d like to express how much I really, really love this website. I found EngVid.com a few months ago and have already learned a lot by your amazing method of teaching: useful, short and interesting topics (not boring), clear and nice teachers…
Thanks a lot EngVid Team.

JUJU

    Hi Juju,

    Thank you for your comments. A learning disability is a disability that makes learning difficult in some way. Usually it is because of a difference in the way a brain processes information.

    For example, Tom Cruise has dyslexia, a type of learning disability. This type of disability makes it difficult to read because the brain has trouble recognizing letters and symbols. I heard in Tom Cruise’s case, he gets people to read him his lines.

    Emma

Thank you that was really helpful

Hello Emma, thank you very much indeed for doing this video! I would like to ask you to make a video explaining the inversion with negative adverbs. :)

esphiritu

Hello, Emma! I have a question. Will be offensive to say “He is visually challenged”? Thank you.

mirimarini

    Hi Mirimarini,

    I haven’t heard people use this expression before. I don’t think it is very common. When I looked the word up in a guide book, the book said that people may find it offensive.

    Again, what some people find offensive, others may find acceptable. It often depends on the person.

    Emma

Hi Emma … thanks you for your class. I want ask you a question. I know a pretty song of Reo Speedwagon called “take it on the run” talked about the singer’s girlfriend who some people seen leaving with other boy …..Have you ever heard it? Well: What is the meaning of “take it on the run” in this case?

jesusangel

    I’m not exactly sure. This is not a common expression, but from what I gather, I think it means ‘to hit the road’ or leave town.

    Emma

Thanks for the lesson. I learned a lot.

rana

Good. This is what I was looking for.

manojkj

In Russian language we do not have special rules for naming disabled people. Still we try to say it in a mild way

Dima

Your lesson is excellent! Congrats!
My doubt is: can the word maimed have non-offensive meaning in another context?
For example:
The surfer had his left hand maimed when the shark bit it.
or
He was maimed during the WW1.

lari

Hi Emma!
Thank you for such a brilliant video! This is the best video i’ve watched on your site ever! You don’t get to learn such things everyday, I totally appreciate your effort and time you’ve spent preparing for that video. I have a request for you; would you please make a video about a normal in-class conversation; things like how to ask the teacher about the material included on an exam and so on. I’ve googled such type of conversations but i couldn’t find any. One more thing please, i would highly appreciated if you could make a video on how to ask the barber or the hairdresser for a certain haircut, i know that haircut styles are endless, but at least teach us the basics.
Thank you very much.
Osama
PS; you’re a celebrity in my university in Jordan; all English majors just love you, especially after your video on disability!

Hi Emma, in the sentence “Some people can not hear a thing, they are born deaf” is considered offensive if I say “can not hear at all” instead of “can not hear a thing”. Thanks. Great site, great teachers, great human beings.

kaify

Hi there Emma. I´m wondering if it´s true that the Canadians are particularly afraid of the dark lol!jk.I point this out because I watched not so long ago on an episode of the sitcom “How I met your mother” how some Americans at a bar mocked at the Canadian girl(Robin) saying that :) It was kind of funny.Regards.

vicodin

Thank you Emma, I won’t hurt any person with my English…. or bad expressions, but sometimes, as a beginner, it is not easy to find the right word. Regards

cat1

It is a great lesson with taboo words. As a foreigner, we often learn any wrong or rude English expressions from the massmedia such as TV, Movies, Radio and even from songs. Thank you for your great teaching. I will be careful to use expressions with diability. Cheers!

seemoo345

Sublime Emma.

Sorry but you said in a previous answer: :Thank you for your comment Isidro. It’s unfortunae, but many people here continue to use offensive language when talking about disabilities….can I say:Thank you for your comment Isidro. It’s unfortunate, but many people here continue “using” (instead of “to use”)offensive language when talking about disabilities. Thanks in advance.

spous67

Hi Emma, I’d like to express my high gratitude to you for this wonderful lesson. I’m an ESL teacher and i can use the vocabulary of this lesson to teach my students what to say and what not to say when talking about disability.

Hello Emma.I am Ruslan. I am from Ukraine. I like your lessons. All they are very useful but unfortunatelly you often speak very very very fast. Could you speak a little bit slowly? I think it would be easier to understand of what you speak for many people who learn English on engvid.com
