Read along to practice your English and to learn the English phrase OR SO and the suffix -ISH

In this English lesson I wanted to help you learn the English phrase "or so." The best way for me to explain this phrase is to use it in a sentence. Let's say I was going to the store and as I'm leaving Jen says, "Hey, I need some apples." I could say, "How many apples do you need?" And she could say, "Oh, I don't know, around 10 or so." So when you say you need "around 10 or so," it means nine would probably be okay, 11 would be fine, maybe even 12. It means that Jen didn't need exactly 10 apples, she needed 10 or so. We also use this when we're talking about time. If my brother was coming over to visit and if he said, "What time should I come over tomorrow?" I could say, "Oh, I don't know, "around 10 or so, around 11 or so." So basically that means some time around 10 o'clock or 11 o'clock, and that he didn't have to be there at exactly 10 o'clock or 11.

The second phrase I wanted to teach you today isn't actually a phrase, it's actually a suffix that we sometimes add to the end of words, and let me give you an example. Let's say you were looking at my van and you were trying to decide if it was blue or gray. It's, my one van is actually kind of in between those two colors. So you could say the van is bluish. You could say it's a grayish van. We also use this when we're talking about time. In the example where my brother was thinking of coming over, if he said, "What time should I come over?" I could say, "Why don't you come over around 10ish, "why don't you come over around 11ish?"

So you can see how both of these, let's review them, kind of mean the same thing. So if I was to say, "You need to get 10 or so apples," or, "You need to get about 10ish," that would be somewhere around 10. Maybe nine or 11 or 10 or 12, 13 or 14 would probably be too many. But anyways, these are two phrases we use when we're trying to talk about numbers but we don't need to be precise.

Hey, let's look at a comment from a previous video. Let me get the comment out, it's in my back pocket. This comment is from Berevilson, and Berevilson says, "Hi Teacher Bob, you did an awesome job. "Even when having problems it is good for us, "because this way we are learning how to fix our mistakes. "Thanks a lot for your amazing work." And then my response was, "I decided on this channel "that you would always get the whole video, warts and all. "I think that just makes it more real for everyone. "Even English teachers make mistakes." So I used a little phrase in there, "warts and all." That's a phrase I don't think I've taught on this channel, but when you get something warts and all, it means you get the good parts and the bad parts. You get the pretty parts and the beautiful parts, and you get the ugly parts. When you get something "warts and all," you get the whole thing, and that's what I decided I would do on this channel.

Sometimes when I make these English lessons, I'll start recording a few times, but once I actually get going, once I'm making the video like I am now, I just let the camera run for four minutes, and you get the video warts and all. You get the English lesson warts and all. Do you know what warts are? Warts are things things that grow on your skin sometimes. I actually have a wart right here somewhere, I'm not showing you that. But warts are like a little brown bump, or I forget what we would call it. But it's just a place on your skin that has a little bit of a different color and maybe the skin is raised a little bit, so it's called a wart. And some people think they're ugly. Some people think a wart is beautiful. I don't really know. But when you get these videos we have this phrase, you get the video warts and all. That means you get the good parts of the lesson, you get the parts where I make mistakes, you get the parts where I mispronounce words and then correct myself, or you get the parts where I say words wrong, and then I correct myself.

You even get videos once in a while, like today, where I talk way too fast for some reason. I think because it's cold out here, and believe it or not, this is actually my third attempt to make this video. The first two didn't work well because there was just a lot of noise and wind and problems.

Anyways, see you later.
