How to Learn & Remember New English Words Daily through a News App | Business English Vocabulary


Hey everyone, welcome back to our Channel,
this is me Meera. We have always been saying on our Channel, that learning English has
to be fun. So what do we do? We learn via books, videos, movies, songs etc. right? And
isn’t that great? Well reading is one of the mediums to learn English and when we talk
about reading learning via newspapers has been an old method and I still use it. And
that is exactly what I have got for you, learning English with the help of news. Well news has
been a very helpful source. But these days we read news on our phones, right? Especially
me, especially with such hectic schedules, you do not have time for the paper, phone
is my only Savior when it comes to news. The truth is newspapers are too lengthy and TV
news is too biased with advertisements. The good articles are usually behind the expensive
pay walls so, I like to read headlines and mostly bite-sized news and then decide, if
I want to read the whole article further or not. So what I was doing was I was surfing
on the net for an app that will give me the whole story in small paragraphs so I do not
have to read the complete news and I still get to understand what is happening around
me and be updated with, right? So I found this app called “Compass News” and I quickly
downloaded it to see how it works and if I like it. So basically what I realized is that
it is a journalism app and the website is actually worth reading. With this app I actually
found what I was looking for so then I went ahead and we contacted them. Let me tell you
about this app at the end of the video, but basically we are going to learn, how to learn
English through news reading and on “Compass News” make sure that you’re listening and
observing I would be narrating few articles and you have to listen to me properly to understand
what are we going to learn today. So let us take a look at what we’re going to do, come
on. So let’s go ahead, I’m going to open my “Compass News” app right here, okay as you
can see, I have already prepared my profile which is right here and what I have is my
news for today, which is Tuesday, you might be reading this a little later but you can
catch up with me, right? So, well I have a lot of news right here, that’s my first page,
that’s my main page, today’s headlines, I have five main headlines, North Korea is probably
building new missiles. Trump offers to meet Iran’s president. Well since I’m interested
in this news, I’m going to quickly open this and I have a very short news but a wholesome
news I’m sure, right here. I’m going to get you, I’m going to run you through the article,
I’m going to read out to you, you have to listen carefully of the way I’m reading and
then we will go ahead and learn few words and few sentences, okay? So here goes, Trump
offers to meet Iran’s president. A week after his all-caps rant at Iran, US president Donald
Trump has offered to meet Iran’s leaders with no preconditions and anytime they want. He
told reporters at the White House that he believed in meetings and would meet with anyone.
Well this is a quick story, you have a backstory with it to understand what is it about, okay?
Last week, Trump angrily tweeted to Iranian president Rouhani never ever threaten the
United States again or you will suffer consequences. The likes of which few throughout history
have ever suffered before. We are no longer a country that will stand for your demented
words of violence and death. Be cautious. Iran’s relationship with the US is particularly
hostile at the moment. Trump left the Iranian nuclear deal in May. Now as you can see there
are a lot of words and phrases that Trump has used and article has used. So I have shortlisted
few words which I think will help you understand English and the article better. So let’s take
a run-through and take a look at these words. Well our first word is or the phrase is “all
caps rant”. Where rant is a verb used to describe the action of talking or arguing about a topic
in a very passionate way. While typing all caps is short for all capital letters as you
can see Donald Trump seems to love to tweet in caps or capital letters therefore the term
all caps rant is another way of saying that Trump took to, took to making his argument
or rant in all caps which is in capital letters. So it was a strong point expressed again in
capital letters on social media which was Twitter for example in a simple way in English
if you want to say it to anyone, “don’t do it” and you say it in a very forceful way
that will become all caps rant, okay? Moving ahead the next one that I’ve sorted shortlisted
for you is, “no preconditions” preconditions mean that certain criteria or conditions have
to be fulfilled for a certain thing to happen. For example, you don’t have to wait at the
doctor’s office, on the precondition that you book an appointment. So the term no preconditions
simply means that you don’t need any criteria or condition for a certain thing to happen.
It is something that can take place in the independent of any other factor. Another example
in simple English, there are no preconditions to participate in this competition, right?
Just made it simpler. Let’s take a look at another one, “suffer the consequences” well
this is a phrase which is used to describe that one might face a bad or unpleasant experience
because of doing something, anything. Trump here wants Iran that they will face or suffer
an unpleasant outcome or consequence if they threaten the United States like we saw. Moving
on the next one I found for you is, “demented”. This is a word used to describe behavior which
arises from a medical condition called dementia. People with this condition behave irritationaliy
due to anger, distress or even excitement for that matter. Well here Trump has used
a word as strong as demented to emphasize that Iran is displaying an attitude that he
considers to be very violent and morbid even. Next up we have is, “believed in meetings”.
This phrase used here is to be taken in context to show that a person who believes in meetings
is someone who believes in talking matters or discussing things cordially to come to
an agreement, right? Trump has used this phrase as a way of saying that he believes in sorting
problems by taking the diplomatic approach that is what he said here. Well with this,
I will move on to another word which is “hostile”. This word can be used to describe those who
are, who are unfriendly, right? Or aggressive. For example, “the airport authorities had
turned hostile towards the man who disobeyed rules.” Okay, so these were the shortlisted
words out of the first article. What I want, what I’m going to do is, I’m going to shortlist
another article for you just so that you understand better and I will make sure of that. Okay,
so I’m going to go back to my main page as you can see we have a lot of things here before
we move to the next article, let’s take a look at what we have in the, over here on
the app. Okay, so I have another, there’s another place where they have put in a lot
of journalism articles out here like you can see umm… here, here they have “The New Yorker”,
then they have articles from like you can see, “The Economist”, which is, which is one
of the best again. You have “Refinery”, oh, they also have “The New York Times” now you
can see how simple it was a short article yet a concise, concise information and as
you can see over here they have something called as 30-second summary. What does that
mean? They have literally three points and that you can read in 30 seconds. Now that
is something that I really wanted guys, that because, because of the time that I have,
I just hardly have any. Yet I get to know just in 30 seconds what is the news exactly
about. Which is very, very easy for me. Alright, then if I go on my search button, there are
so many things like there’s, okay look at this page they have Science, Politics, Technology,
American Politics, European Politics, Economy, magazine let me just quickly click on Magazine,
okay? And now I get to see a complete set of articles from different, from different
magazines all around the world, which is really classic because this one app can get me to
all the possible articles from different magazines. And if I like something, I can also read it
offline there are certain articles which you like and want to read further so I can quickly
press the hot button click on the hot button and it will be saved offline. So this is something
that is, that this app is all about. Um, we’re going to move on to our next article, let
me quickly search, okay, alright we’re going to read about 4 million people excluded from
list of citizens in India, okay? Around 4, 4, 4 million people have been excluded from
the final draft list of citizens in the Indian state of Assam. This threatens to strip all
of these people of their citizenship the government says that the list the National Register of
citizens is designed to combat illegal Bangladeshi immigrants. But many have seen it as a state
sanction cracking down on minorities. Rajnath Singh India’s Interior Minister, said that
people whose names were missing from the list shouldn’t worry since everyone would get a
fair chance to appeal. Other officials echoed this sentiment emphasizing that there was
time for people to appeal and being left off this of the list wouldn’t result in immediate
deportation. Now this was a very, very quick article as well and yet again I have shortl,
shortlisted certain words, let’s quickly understand these words as well alight? Starting with
“final draft” list of citizens well a final draft is a term used commonly in written documents
it is a final version of the document after a lot of editing and rewriting. In this article
this phrase is used to show that a final draft of the list of citizens in the state of Assam
was created after a lot of thinking and consideration it’s also another way of saying that no changes
can be made to the document anymore, okay? Moving on to the next phrase, sentences “threatens
to strip” threatened means to scare, pressurize or terrorize someone to do or not to do something.
The word strip means to remove, right? Well in this article the phrase threatens to strip
means that the people of Assam were frightened that the final draft of citizens would strip
or remove their citizenship that they dearly value. I have another word for you which is,
“combat”. This word is used to say what that the one is taking action to reduce or prevent
something bad or undesirable even. Well in this particular article they are combating
illegal immigrants. In other words they are doing everything they can to prevent illegal
immigrants from residing in their state. Well in simple English you can use, “I learned
karate for self-combat” okay? Moving on, “cracking down” this is again a strong phrase used to
talk about taking strict measures. Especially in enforcing obedience to laws or regulations.
In this article you can see how some people view the strict, strict enforcement of the
law against illegal immigrants as a way of cracking down on minorities. Alright, moving
on we have “A fair chance”. This is a phrase to describe that everyone gets an equal chance
to do something. For example we must give the both, we must give both the candidates
a fair chance to win. What I realized is that this app Compass News, is an app that, that
it really made it easy to be well informed about the world. It doesn’t matter that, how
much time I have? Or how much money I have? Even if I have 30 seconds, I can get a quick
30 seconds summary and that’s the fact that I really like about this. It’s very time-saving
and they do have such summaries with single articles from different magazines and newspapers
with short background story which is story so far. Making it so much more easier and
simpler. What I understood is that they understood that the sources cannot be completely neutral,
right? So they put viewpoints from different places. As you can see I have a premium account
over here that means I’ve taken membership for a year. Which costed me about $10. If
you go through this app you would see that this costs you just $1 per month but just
because you are Let’s Talk subscribers, it would only cost you $5. Well here is time
to mention that you will start with 7 days of free trial before you even get to that.
And you know what I really think and I would like to suggest this that it is so much more
easier to sign up for a, for a yearly trial, for a yearly membership just because the news
and the whole idea of learning English through news, make Compass News makes it so much more
easier and so much more simpler and if you see it’s just a cost of two burgers. So what
I would like you to do is, I would definitely suggest you to go ahead and check out the
free trial, make sure you go through the app and then sign up for it if you like it. Until
then I’m going to come back for you with another interesting topic, probably something else
that I found interesting on the web for you guys to learn English, till then make sure
you practice. Make sure you’re smiling. This is me Meera signing off for the day, bye-bye
