out patreon.com/speakwithaziz Welcome to Speak Natural English my friends. It’s Aziz here again. In today’s lesson, I’m going to teach you
three ways to “respond reluctantly”. Which means you’ll be making excuses and you
probably won’t be offending anyone in the process. Now there’s a lot of information in this lesson. So, as usual, be sure to watch this lesson
three to five times and repeat each sentence at least three to five times so you get the
idea. With that out of the way let’s begin. Let’s jump right into number one. Now someone has invited you for lunch and
they say, “Hey let’s get a salad for lunch. I know this really awesome place which makes
a great salad.” now you’ve had a salad for breakfast. You can basically go about saying “I’d love
to but the trouble is, I had a salad this morning. So, let’s try something else.” now it’s your turn to try. Be sure to pause and repeat. “I’d love to but the trouble is I had a
salad for breakfast”. Here’s another way of responding reluctantly
to an invitation. Now imagine that you and I are at an amusement
park and I invite you to go on a rollercoaster ride. Now you’re afraid of size speed. So, you can say “Maybe not! The thing is, I’m afraid of high speed”. Now pause this video and you try. “Maybe not the thing is I’m afraid of high
speed”. Here’s the third way of responding with reluctance. Now imagine that your friend is about to go
shopping and that friend invites you and says, “Hey let’s go out for shopping today!”. You, on‌ ‌the‌ ‌other‌ ‌hand,
are saving for a trip. So, you can respond as such. “I’d love to but the problem is, I’m saving
for a trip”, Now pause this video and you try. “I’d love to but the problem is, I’m saving
up for a trip”. To summarize all of this guys, the thing is,
the problem is, the trouble is, basically mean the same thing. And you can use one or the other. So practice all three of them and don’t worry
if you don’t like one or the other. Because you can choose the one that you want
to speak. Now as always guys there is a lot of information
here. So, be sure to watch this lesson at least
three to five times. So it settles in and you can remember some
of the things that you have learned in this lesson. I’m going to give you a few more examples
be sure to pause and repeat at least three to five times. Here we go. The thing is I don’t like spicy food. The problem is I can’t play tennis. The trouble is I’m not interested in amusement
parks. So there you have it guys. Did you like this lesson and did you like
