เริ่มฟังกันเลย ว่าฝรั่งเขาพูดว่าอะไร


Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday, something, something, something - I can't sing.
Hey, everyone.
I'm Alex.
Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "20 Ways to Say Goodbye in English".
So, I will give you some set phrases that you can use in your daily conversations.
I will also tell you some of the more natural pronunciations of these phrases and these questions so that you are able to recognize them in television shows, and in movies, on the news, YouTube videos - anything else, and you're able to use them yourself to sound more natural in English.

So, let's start with the basics.
We have: "Goodbye", and the shorter version:
Easy, right?
We're done.
See ya.
I said: "20", right?
Yeah, I did, so let's keep going.
So, another way to say: "Goodbye" or a way of, you know, saying: "Goodbye" - I just repeated the same thing, but ignore it.
Let's keep going.
"See you" or "See you later".
Instead of "you", you can also just say: "ya".
So, repeat after me: "See ya.
See ya later.
See ya later."
It's kind of like: "See ya".
"See ya later".
All right.
And you also have - hey, a specific time of day or a specific...
A specific period in time in the future, so you can say: "See ya tomorrow", "See ya Saturday",
"See you at the party", "See you at the funeral".
It's a weird thing to say to someone, but you know, whatever.
All right?
Here's another one, a little more relaxed way to say: "Goodbye" - "All right, see ya tomorrow.
Take it easy." This means, like: "Don't stress.
Just take it easy.
So, you can say this as a goodbye to someone.
Repeat after me: "Take it easy."
All right.
And if you want to be very polite, of course, you can wish someone a good day, so you can just say: "Have a good day."
This is especially useful if you work in the service industry.
So, if you work at a grocery store as a cashier or at a bank, or if you're talking to someone on the phone, and you end a conversation and you say: "All right, bye.
Have a good day."
Or below that, two below that: "Have a nice day."
And instead of saying: "Have a good day" or "Have a nice day", you can also use this phrase, which is: "Have a good one", and this means: "Have a good day"; the "one" means day.
So, let's repeat that one after me.
This one is, again, a little more casual,
so just repeat it; you can use it in everyday situations: "Have a good one."
And for: "Have a nice day", for any of your professional wrestling fans...
That's a silly question because most people who are wrestling fans do not want to tell anyone else that they are wrestling fans,
But in the 1990s there was a professional wrestler named Mankind, also known as Mick Foley, and one of his phrases that he said and he'd say it in like a weird way, he would say: "Have a nice day!"
So, there's that.
Don't say it that way, but just look up: "Mankind,
'Have a nice day'."
I think it's also the name of the book that he wrote about his career after.
Sorry, you want to learn other phrases now.
Forget the last 30 seconds and professional wrestling discussion.
All right, you can also say, instead of: "See ya later", you can say: "Catch ya later".
So, here I wrote: "Catch you later", so let's do the formal version first.
"Catch you later."
Ah, it just sounds weird because I never say that.
"Catch you later."
You have to say it quickly, and you kind of say: "Catch ya", right?
"Hey, catch ya later."
You're not even really saying, like: "Catch ya"; you're saying, like: "Catcha", okay?
So: "Hey, catcha later."
But let's say the "catch ya", too.
Let's say that version, too.
Let's practice.
"Catch ya later."
So, you "catch" like: "Oh, I caught a ball."
It's like you're going to catch the person later; like, you will see each other later; you will catch each other. It's a metaphor; it doesn't really work in this situation.
And if you want to be, like, super cool and you don't want to bother with a lot of words because you're so minimalistic, and you're an artist, man, you're an artist, you just want to say: -"Hey, later."
-"Later, what?"
Just it's a word; doesn't mean anything by itself.
"No, no, no.
So you can just say: "Later."
All right?
Instead of: "See you later" or "Catch ya later" - it's possible just to say: "Later.
All right.
Next, you are a very polite person, so you say: "Enjoy the rest of your day."
Did you say it?
Do you feel very polite?
Let's try it one more time.
I'm going to try it with a British accent.
When I do a British accent, I have to do the buttons on my shirt because it makes me sound a little more formal.
So, let's try it one more time, shall we?
"Enjoy the rest of your day."
My British accent is terrib-...
It's terrible.
I'm never doing that again.
All right, let's try that one more time in my regular speech: "Enjoy the rest of your day."
All right.
Now, if you want to tell someone that you need to leave because maybe you need to get your kids from daycare, maybe you promised a friend you are going to meet them somewhere, maybe you are late for an appointment - you can use one of these three phrases.
They all mean: "I have to go".
"I have to"; it's necessary, I need to go,
I need to leave right now.
And I covered it because never write this, okay?
The word "gotta", it's for speaking only; don't use it in your emails with your boss, don't use it when you're writing an essay, but use it when you speak.
You can say: "Ugh!
I gotta go."
Now: "I gotta go" also means: "I need to go pee in the bathroom", so be aware of that because it's a very important distinction.
All right?
So you could say: "I gotta go.
I gotta go.
I gotta go", or: "Bye.
I gotta go."
So, just be careful.
You can also say: "I gotta run."
Maybe you don't really literally have to run, but you can make the situation seem very urgent, and you say: "Ah, oh, okay, I gotta catch my bus.
I gotta run."
"I need to leave.
I need to go."
And because you are superhuman, superhero, super fast, you can say: "I gotta jet."
So, say it one more time.
Don't do the: "Fff", because that is ridiculous; only I'm allowed to be ridiculous in this video.
"I gotta jet."
Let's try it in a cool way.
Okay, how do you...?
How do you look cool?
I never learned how to look cool.
Do cool kids roll up their sleeves?
Let's try that.
Okay, here we go.
"Sorry, guys, I gotta jet."
Is that cool?
I want to try one of the other ones.
Hold on, hold on.
"Mom, Dad, I can't stay.
I gotta run."
That's what cool kids say, right?
Do they?
I don't know.
Okay, next: "Till we meet again."
So, until the next time I see you, goodbye.
So, I put: "till", this is the short form for "until".
So, repeat it after me: "Till we meet again."
And now I'm going to give you some b-b-b-bonus
You can also say: "Till next time."
Who says: "Till next time"?
I say that in my videos all the time at the end.
So, listen for it; at the end of the video
I will say: "Till next time.
Until the next time.
Until I see you again."
All right?
And now if you want to be a little more loose, this is kind of slang, so you can just say:
"All right, I got to go.
Just you're wishing them well, you're saying: "Peace" to that person.
You can also say: "Peace out."
But this is very familiar language, so just use it with your closest friends.
You know, if you're a bro...
Do you know what a "bro" is?
Like, you know, those guys who, like, roll up their shirts because they're super cool, and they go to the gym like this.
And they walk like this.
"Hey, bro. I gotta run. Peace out."
You know those guys, right?
I didn't hang out with those guys in high school.
Thankfully I was very big so they never beat me up because they were too scared that I could do something even though I have no fighting talent at all, but that's okay.
Two more...
Three more.
All right.
Very polite: "All right.
See ya.
Be good."
I say this to my daughters all the time when I, you know, hug them at the beginning of the day when I go to work or they to go school,
I give them a kiss, say: "All right.
Have a nice day.
Be good."
Because you want them to behave, right?
And another thing you can say...
I don't say this to my kids; I don't know,
it makes them seem like they are trouble-makers,
but you can say to someone, like: "All right.
See ya.
Stay out of trouble."
Don't get into trouble; stay out of trouble.
All right?
And one more: "All right.
See ya later.
Keep in touch."
Now, I have a whole video dedicated to "keep in touch", so you can check out that video if you want to see more of me talking about keeping in touch with people or staying in touch with people.
You can also do: "Stay in touch."
Bonus English, guys.
Bonus English all day in this video.
So: "Keep in touch" means stay in contact with me; don't lose touch with me.
You know, just stay in communication; send me a text when you arrive at the restaurant or something.
Just keep in touch; stay connected.
All right, that is a lot of stuff for today, and because I love you and because I want you to maximize your English and to learn as much as you can, I have created a quiz with 20 questions on engVid so that you can practice this material.
So, make sure that you do the quiz, say hi to me in the comments, ask me questions - just not hard questions, like...
Guys, some of you, you like...
You ask me like seven questions, you say:
"Alex, I have seven questions.
What's the difference between this and this?
And they're all unrelated.
Guys, if you can Google it first, please try
to do that because I'm very busy, too.
I will do my best.
I love it; I like answering, I like talking with everybody, but just if you can Google it first, I would appreciate it very much.
Very much.
All right.
So, that's it.
Till next time...
Yeah, use that word.
Use that phrase.
See ya later.
Take it easy.
Have a good one.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
I gotta go.
I gotta jet.
I gotta run.
My voice changes when I lift my sleeves.

หลังจากฟังคลิปจบแล้ว นักศึกษาก็จะได้ทราบว่า การกล่าวอำลาในภาษาอังกฤษนั้น มีการใช้กันได้หลายรู้แบบ ขึ้นอยู่กับสถานการณ์ต่าง ๆ ครับ

ความสามารถในการฟังภาษาอังกฤษ ขึ้นอยู่กับชั่วโมงบินในการฟังของแต่ละคน
คนที่ฟังมาก ฟังจนชิน ฟังจนพูดได้ในที่สุด ไม่มีวิธีลัด มันเป็นทักษะล้วน ๆ ถ่ายทอดให้กันไม่ได้
ผมในฐานะผู้สอน ได้แต่เพียงชี้แนวทาง หาวิธีนำเสนอแนวทางให้ทุกคนได้พัฒนาได้เร็วที่สุด

ช่วงแรก ๆ เราอาจจะดูคำบรรยายประกอบไปก่อน ต่อไปเมื่อเราฟังจนชินหูได้แล้ว เราก็จะสามารถฟังภาษาอังกฤษได้ทุกรูปแบบโดยไม่ต้องมีคำบรรยายได้อย่างแน่นอนครับ
