Welcome to Speak Natural English my friends. It’s Aziz here again. In today's lesson, I'm going to teach you three ways to “respond reluctantly”. This means you'll be making excuses and you probably won't be offending anyone in the process. Now there's a lot of information in this lesson. So, as usual, be sure to watch this lesson three to five times and repeat each sentence at least three to five times so you get the idea. With that out of the way let's begin.

Let's jump right into number one. Now someone has invited you for lunch and they say, “Hey let's get a salad for lunch. I know this really awesome place which makes a great salad.” now you've had a salad for breakfast. You can basically go about saying “I'd love to but the trouble is, I had a salad this morning. So, let's try something else.” now it's your turn to try. Be sure to pause and repeat. “I'd love to but the trouble is I had a salad for breakfast”.

Here's another way of responding reluctantly to an invitation. Now imagine that you and I are at an amusement park and I invite you to go on a rollercoaster ride. Now you're afraid of size speed. So, you can say “Maybe not! The thing is, I'm afraid of high speed”. Now pause this video and you try. “Maybe not the thing is I'm afraid of high speed”.

Here's the third way of responding with reluctance. Now imagine that your friend is about to go shopping and that friend invites you and says, “Hey let's go out shopping today!”. You, on‌ ‌the‌ ‌other‌ ‌hand, are saving for a trip. So, you can respond as such. “I'd love to but the problem is, I'm saving for a trip”, Now pause this video and you try. “I'd love to but the problem is, I’m saving up for a trip”.

To summarize all of this, guys, the thing is, the problem is, the trouble is, basically mean the same thing. And you can use one or the other. So practice all three of them and don't worry if you don't like one or the other. Because you can choose the one that you want to speak about. Now as always guys there is a lot of information here. So, be sure to watch this lesson at least three to five times. So it settles in and you can remember some of the things that you have learned in this lesson.

I'm going to give you a few more examples be sure to pause and repeat at least three to five times. Here we go.

The thing is I don't like spicy food.
The problem is I can't play tennis.
The trouble is I'm not interested in amusement parks.

Random YouTube Video Generator

 This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.

 The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

 Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.

 So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.

 YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.

 YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

 YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
