A New Video About Garage Sales, and Some Ideas to Help You Improve Your Speech

Hi everyone!  This is David Berlin.   This video is about garage sales in America--a common feature of American culture.   A garage sale is when someone gathers their used goods, things that they've used but aren't using anymore, but that still have life in them, and they put them on blankets on their lawn or card tables in their driveway, and they sell them.

My students often want to understand "street English"--American English as its spoken everyday, informal English.  One of the best ways to do that is to watch old American sitcoms.   Sitcoms like "Friends" or "The Office" or "Seinfeld" are great for that...of course, if you have some trouble understanding the English that's being spoken on the sitcoms, or you can't make out the words, I'm here to help!  Give me a call at (732) 807-5424 or hit me up on Skype at and I will be happy to sit with you and watch TV and TEACH you at the same time.  I've done exactly that with other students, and its a great way to learn real world English, as its spoken on the streets every day.

And of course, don't forget to check out my ESL/Accent Reduction YouTube channel or my American Idiom of the Day Twitter Feed.  Or, if you're ready to schedule a consult or a first lesson, first check out my ESL/Accent Reduction Training Website for information on rates, scheduling, and so on.  I'd love to hear from you!
