My BEST ENGLISH TIPS For Indians, Pakistanis, and other South Asians

source: Learn English with Benjamin [engVid]     2018年1月24日
If you are from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, or anywhere else in South Asia, this is the video for you! I've visited South Asia many times in my life, and there are many South Asians living in London, so I've had a whole lifetime to listen to South Asian English. Many South Asians speak very, very good English, but some aspects of the way they speak English are confusing or considered incorrect in British English. Watch this video to learn what these issues are, so that you can correct them today. My tips for South Asian English speakers cover grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and tone. For example, if you change your intonation in a sentence by putting the stress on a different word, it may be perceived to have a different meaning. But the word you put the stress on in India may be different from the one you should put the stress on in England! Also, South Asian and British English speakers sometimes have different meanings for common words like "hotel" and "backside". Even if you are not South Asian, this lesson will help you with your English pronunciation.

1. Not connected to municipal utility systems, such as the water supply or the main electrical grid. I just need to get enough solar panels installed to disconnect from the city's electricity supply and my house will be completely off the grid.
2. Free from governmental observation or control; not traceable through any means of commerce or communication that could be linked to one's identity. Fearing for his life, the whistle-blower from the intelligence agency was forced to live off the grid for a number of years, eschewing anything that might leave a digital footprint for someone to find.
