Here is a way you can sound more like a native English-speaker! Simply start using the suffix "-ish".
Click "CC" for English subtitles.
Adding "ish" to the end of words is something that native English-speakers do all the time, but it's rarely talked about in English textbooks or classrooms. Knowing how to use it can also help you when you don't know the precise word to describe something.
Examples: babyish, seventyish, smallish, whitish.
You can also use it on its own to answer certain questions! Watch to find out how!

I am a native speaker from Australia. I mainly speak British English.
Hello Max! Regards from Brasil! I have watched some of your videos. They are the right lenght, humorous and carefully chosen. Congratulations on your sense of humour! By the way, I teach English here in São Paulo, a cosmopolitan and industrial city in the southeast of Brasil. Bye for now.
The first one is correct. We don't normally say "greatish" though. I'd say we don't use it with words that are *too* positive. We say goodish and nice-ish, but we don't normally say greatish, amazing-ish or fantastic-ish. I hope that makes sense!
Interesting lesson. Thank you!
Max, you know we have different suffixes in Russian, Belarusian languages, too.

And I think it's not all. :)
It can be used one, two or three in one word in one time. Different of course.
To be honest, i've been studied English at school, without success. Since 5 months i decided to start listening and reading every day in order to improve my skills :) By the way i've been watching tv series,, youtube video and listening english songs and radio.
Thanks very much!
*I am from Mexico.
*I love your facial expressions. (I think that's what you want to say with "gestures" .("gestos", no?) In English it can be translated in a couple of ways ;). )
Oh, thank you :).
I live in a smallish ;) town called Coffs Harbour. It's nice, but I would recommend going to a big city (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, etc) if you plan to study English in Australia ;).
Some Australian accents are very strong and difficult for foreigners to understand, but not everybody speaks like that. Australian actors such as Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush are also easy to understand.
Thanks, Bassel :).
I played for about 8 years as a kid/teenager. Then I completely stopped for over 10 years... I've never been very good (I don't practise enough!), but it's enjoyable. Do you play?
And no, he doesn't. His heart was broken by a platypus last year, and he's still recovering ;).
