One time in Russia, they had a new law taking effect where you couldn't buy beer after midnight...but someone had written on the sign that after midnight, you were no longer allowed to buy "bear" :D
English with Max (11 months ago)
Hahaha! Who knows, it could've been a local delicacy ;).
L. McClane (11 months ago)
Also don't hate on beards!

existe um trocadilho em português com o coala que é assim : porque o coala não é um urso ? porque ele não é coalificado pra isso
English with Max (11 months ago)
Haha! I don't speak Portuguese (yet...), but I know enough Spanish to understand that :).

If I'm not mistaken, I've met this form for expression: " to each THEIR own". Could natives say that?
English with Max (1 year ago)
Yes! "To each their own" is correct as well. Nowadays it's probably considered more politically correct to say "their", but I've always said "his".

Hi Max, Thanks for the video. Why the comparison is always between British and American English in spite of the fact that there are several other countries speak English like New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and you home land? Is it relevant to any political dominance the US enjoys? Why it's unusual or rare to find Can. Eng. Vs. Irish or Australian Vs. NZ? Regards, Ahmad,
47Sukhoi (1 year ago)
Rational explanation, thanks a lot Max. Regards,
English with Max (1 year ago)
Good question! It's just because British English and American English are considered the two standard variations of English, and those are what you mainly find in dictionaries. Probably because English initially came from Britain, and the USA now has such a large population and great economic power. So I think it's to do with population and political/economic reasons. It would also take a very long time to explain all the different variations! It would be like teaching Arabic and saying: this is Classical Arabic, but this is how it is said in Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc. 😉

En la ultima pronunciacion en AE es como pajaro , entonces como se pronuncia pajaro.?para eete caso?
English with Max (1 year ago)
I'll look at the pronunciation of "bird" in another video ;). No, the last word (beard) is pronounced differently! It's tricky, I know. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/bird (click the loudspeakers)
Carlos Augusto (1 year ago)
Hi, Max. How was your Christmas doing?. I hope you haven't drunk too much. sorry...bad joke!. I was wondering what's the difference between those words you teach in your video and the word "bird"?. It seems all of them sound quite similar.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Haha! I'm 31... But I've been told I have a young face ;). See you next time!
Carlos Augusto (1 year ago)
Aren't you 21?, Really?. Why do you look as if you were 21 then?. Wow, you look too young!. What kind of blood do you drink?. Well, I look forward to seeing your next video Max. See you.
English with Max (1 year ago)
It was nice, thank you :). And this year I stayed very sober - I'm not 21 anymore 😂. Bird is similar, but the vowel sound is different: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/bird (click the loudspeakers)

Happy New Year Max. The vid was really helpful. Inserting expression "to each his own" is a lovely idea. keep it up.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Happy New Year! I saw your comment on Google+ too. I'm glad it was helpful and that you like the additional vocabulary 😀.
Hi Max! Very useful! Thanks. I wish you, Frank, George and all your family a Happy New Year. Happy 2018!

I really like your pronounciation videos, they always help a lot. Btw: there is a poem called "The Chaos", maybe one day you can read it to us :)
English with Max (1 year ago)
Thanks! Now that you mention it, I do remember reading that once. It's a good idea for a video! I'll add it to the list ;).
"Don't forget to share with your friends" - 0:28 :)))) I shared with my best friend Woody W. :)))
O... I understood. Thank you Max!
English with Max (1 year ago)
Oh I see! In English we just say "cousin", whether they are male or female or whether they are your uncle or aunt's child. I know it's often different in other languages.
I mean, my cousin sister is my aunt's daughter. Maybe I make a mistake. I don't know how to say this correctly.
English with Max (1 year ago)
I figured haha :). It's really nice that your cousin also watches my videos! (What do you mean by "cousin sister"?) And thanks very much for the subtitles!! I'll go and accept them now :).
I mean Woody Woodpecker. :) It was my friend when I was ten years or something like that. My cousin sister from Seattle watch your videos too. She's learnin English too. P.s. : as well I added a subtitle in Russian language.
esm325 (1 year ago)
Thank You, Max! For the complete set it was necessary to add the word "bird'. It is very similarly too.
English with Max (1 year ago)
My pleasure! You're right. I had thought about including it, but then decided to save it for another video ;).

Wow, thanks very much for this! I've already used some public domain pictures, but I couldn't find what I wanted on the website I normally use ;). I'll bookmark this one!

English with Max (1 year ago)
You're right... I stole one of my dad's 😉.

Can bears shed beer on their beard?
Юрий Руденя (1 year ago)
English with Max thanks a lot) so many words in English... 😎
English with Max (1 year ago)
😀😀 No, but they can spill beer on their beard ;). "To shed" has a few meanings, but I think the most common one is to lose hair (mainly used for animals).

A hipster keeps a long fashionable beard, right? Please let me know if I'm right or wrong!
English with Max (1 year ago)
Normally we say "he HAS a beard". So you could say: "A hipster has a long, fashionable beard." Otherwise, correct!
