http://www.engvid.com/ Let's go into the bedroom... and learn some new words there! I'm going to teach you lots of bedroom vocabulary: simple words like 'pillow' and strange words like 'duvet'. Don't hit the snooze button! Wake up and learn these words now. http://www.engvid.com/english-vocabulary-bedroom/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. Welcome to my bedroom. It's not my bedroom. It's a whiteboard with words on it, but I'm going to teach you about bedroom -- vocabulary that is. Stay tuned. Maybe I'll teach you some other bedroom vocabulary if you know what I mean. We're going to go on the innocent side today, and I'm going to teach you about basic things in bedrooms. I know. I know. Okay. This is a bed. Do you sleep on a bed, or do you sleep on a futon? Did I speak Japanese? Hi, Japanese people in the house. Konnichiwa. O-genki desu ka? When you sleep, you usually sleep on a "futon". We have stolen your word. We're so nice. And we use it for our own. "Futon" -- if you know or don't know -- is, basically, a mattress that you put on the floor. It sounds kind of uncomfortable, but it's really, really good if you're really drunk, and there's never a fear of falling out of the bed. You just kind of roll over and, boom, you're awake. It has some advantages and some disadvantages. So this is a picture of a bed. I am an artist. Remember this as we go through this. The first very common thing that you will find in a bedroom is a pillow. "Pillow". A lot of people -- I don't know why -- have never learned this word in English. I know it's not in a lot of textbooks. You don't open your textbook and go, "Wow, this is a pillow." You're more like, "This is a pen." Thanks. I know that. So the first one is a pillow. A "pillow" is a soft or hard, squishy thing that you put your head on -- not that head; this head. And to keep your pillow clean, you're going to put a pillow case on it. A "pillow case" is like a cover for the pillow. You can take the pillow case off, and please wash it. You can have different kinds of pillows. There're feather pillows. So what we do is we take a duck or a goose; we kill it; we take all its feathers off; and we stick them in a pillow. Yeah. I don't think that's really cool. Or you can just have a fluffy cotton pillow or another microfibre pillow. You have a pillow case. The next thing that is essential for a bed -- please -- are sheets. Now be careful with your pronunciation. You don't want to say "shits". That's the stuff that comes out of your bum. You want to say "sheets". When you say this, the "e's" are very long. So you're going to say "sheets". Usually, we have a top sheet and a fitted sheet. The fitted sheet just means it's the bottom sheet. They like to use fancy words like fitted sheet, top sheet -- just two sheets. And you know what? You can use just two of these. Don't worry about it. The top sheet -- it goes on top. And the fitted sheet goes on the bottom. It covers -- the main part of your bed here is a mattress. The "mattress" is, like, a big fluffy thing that you get to relax on. And the black part of my picture would be a bed frame. Let's write that down. It's important. So a "bed frame" is the support of the mattress. Pillow, pillow case, sheets, top and bottom or fitted sheets. Next: In Canada, or maybe in your country, in the winter, it's cold. You want something to cover you. Sheets are very thin. They're usually made of cotton. A "cover" or a "blanket", a "duvet" -- du-what? This word is a French word. So the way that we say it looks very different from the spelling. It looks like "duvette". I think that maybe some people -- especially people in America -- would say, "I got a new duvette cover. It's got some 'dubyas' on it." It's actually very important that you say this properly and you say "duvet". So it's like "du-vay". The next one is a comforter. "Comforter", "duvet", "blanket", "cover", and the last one, a "quilt" -- they're all the same. Don't tell people who like to design beds and fabrics that it's just something that keeps you warm. There are slight differences between a quilt, a comforter, and a duvet, but you can discover that for yourself. You've got homework. Go to a store. Ask the people that work there to show you a quilt, a comforter, a duvet, a blanket, and a cover. You're practicing your English. The next thing that you would have in your bedroom is furniture. "Furniture" is an uncountable noun. "Furniture" includes a bed, a nightstand -- "Ronnie, what's a 'nightstand'?" Oh, "standing up", "nighttime" -- what? No. A nightstand or -- maybe this makes more sense -- a bedside table. Look at my picture. This thing right here is a "bedside table". It's beside your bed, and it's a table. I know. Sometimes English makes sense. "Nightstand" or "bedside table" -- these are the same. Some people say "nightstand"; some people say "bedside table". Some people just say "that thing beside the bed". But it is definitely a bedside table or nightstand.
