Hey everyone, I’m Teacher Tiffani and I want to thank you so much for joining me for another episode of the Speak English with Tiffani podcast. In today’s lesson we are going to listen to one English dialogue and learn 2 new English Expressions.

DIALOGUE

Ok, let’s begin with the dialogue:

As a doctor, it is important to keep in mind that your decisions directly affect the lives of people. So, you must remember to always be learning about the new advancements in medical technology and also the new discoveries in health. But, most importantly, you must never forget the importance of being able to relate to your patients. They need to know that you care about them, before they can trust you with their lives.

As a doctor, it is important to keep in mind that your decisions directly affect the lives of people. So, you must remember to always be learning about the new advancements in medical technology and also the new discoveries in health. But, most importantly, you must never forget the importance of being able to relate to your patients. They need to know that you care about them, before they can trust you with their lives.

Ok great, now let’s go over the two new expressions that were in the dialogue.

FIRST EXPRESSION

The first English Expression was…
“To keep in mind that” (repeat)

Now, repeat after me…
“To keep in mind that” (repeat twice)

Ok, now let’s say it at a normal pace…
“To keep in mind that” (repeat twice)

This expression means to remain aware of something.


EXAMPLES

So, let’s look at five examples using this Expression.

The first example is…

“Keep in mind that he does not hear too well anymore.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]
“Keep in mind that he does not hear too well anymore.”

[Now, this time we will go at a more natural pace and I want you to try to follow me]
“Keep in mind that he does not hear too well anymore.”

The second example is…

“Please keep in mind that she does not speak well in public.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]
“Please keep in mind that she does not speak well in public.”

[Now, the last time at a regular pace]
“Please keep in mind that she does not speak well in public.”

The third example is…

“Keep in mind that we are guests.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]
“Keep in mind that we are guests.”

[Now, the last time at a regular pace]
“Keep in mind that we are guests.”

The fourth example is…

“Keep in mind that you don’t work here anymore.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]
“Keep in mind that you don’t work here anymore.”

[Now, the last time at a regular pace]
“Keep in mind that you don’t work here anymore.”

The fifth example is…

“Keep in mind that we need to leave in exactly an hour.”

[Once again, this time repeat after me]
“Keep in mind that we need to leave in exactly an hour.”

[Now, the last time at a regular pace]
“Keep in mind that we need to leave in exactly an hour.”

 


SECOND EXPRESSION

The second English Expression was…
“To relate to somebody” (repeat)

Now, repeat after me…
“To relate to somebody”  (repeat twice)

Ok, now let’s say it at a normal pace…
“To relate to somebody” (repeat twice)

This expression means to understand and appreciate someone or something.

 


EXAMPLES

So, let’s look at five examples using this Expression.

The first example is…
