Even if you are just starting to learn English, it would be good to immediately know more than “Hi” and “How are you?” English for beginners can be more varied than just “I don't know.” Do you agree? It is quite possible to immediately start using spoken English phrases like a native speaker. Below are 80 useful English phrases for every day that will help enrich your knowledge and diversify your speech in English.

The English vocabulary is rich, but there is no need to memorize the entire vocabulary! A native English speaker knows, on average, 42 thousand words. For simple communication, he uses approximately 5,000 of them every day. A foreigner may only need 450 words for travel, but for standard communication you only need 1000 words!

For normal communication, it is enough to know basic phrases and expressions in English that will help you discuss the weather, find out “how are you doing,” invite someone for a walk or to the cinema, express gratitude or other reactions in various situations.

Communicating with other people in English opens up a whole world of possibilities. With this skill, you can communicate with people around the world who don't speak your native language. This allows you to hear the perspective of people who grew up in other cultures. If you push yourself out of your comfort zone and just start talking, you will feel so proud and motivated that you will be excited to continue learning!

So, let's begin!

Warm, sexy, exciting words for a man

Exciting phrases are as important as inspiring compliments and declarations of love. Everyday life and everyday life quickly crowd out passion from relationships. Without it, communication between two lovers becomes boring and monotonous. Therefore, from time to time it is necessary to add fire to the correspondence.

Most men will be delighted to receive a sexy SMS from their lover:

  • Memories of you make me so excited.
  • I want you.
  • What if I've been a bad girl for too long? Punish me tonight.
  • Guess what we could do tonight?
  • Today you can do whatever you want with me.
  • I'm burning with love.
  • When will you arrive and we will do what I so want?
  • Today you can show everything you are capable of.
  • Make me forget everything.
  • You know, your touch drives me crazy.
  • I hope you and I won't sleep today.
  • Now and right now I can't concentrate on work because of what we did last night.

Invaluable experience of linguists

Linguists from Britain like to organize various surveys. Not long ago they decided to create another one. Its goal is to discover words that are pleasant to the ear. The survey was conducted among foreigners, since it is difficult for a native British resident to determine the attractiveness of a particular word - he simply ties them to certain meanings. And, as for non-native speakers, they are often attracted to unknown words.

First place in the survey was taken by the very melodic word mother, known to every person from birth. Other results varied depending on age and social group level:

Young people prefer romantic words, as well as those related to music.

Philosophical concepts appealed to older people.

Businessmen like tangible terms about business life.

Housewives like everyday words, as well as those that are often found in shopping and in TV series.

As you can see, the survey did not give definite results. This was further evidence that the environment where a person lives and works influences lexical preferences. Every language has attractive words.

I'm sorry about thatI'm really sorry
Oh my god!My God!
What the hell!What the heck!
What a drink! (what a shame) What a pity!
  • Since religion is a delicate issue, the phrase “Oh, my god” is often replaced with the euphemism “Oh, my gosh” , and “What the hell” - “What the heck” .
  • I'm sorry about that is said to express sympathy when something sad happens.

— I failed my exam. — I failed the exam.

- Sorry about that. - I'm really sorry.

  • The expression “What a shame!” often mistakenly translated as “What a shame!”, because shame means “disgrace.” It actually means “What a pity.”

Funny pictures can also serve as an alternative to phrases. You can find options that suit your situation through a global search or on social networks.
