Hey, everyone. It’s Berlin fashion week! We are so excited. Except we shouldn’t show it, because it’s not cool to show that you are super excited in Berlin. ☺
Seriously though, do you know how to talk about fashion in English? Do you know how to compliment a person on what she or he is wearing? Or how to compare that person to someone or something else? In this English lesson, I will show you how you can do that. It’s simple. You can do it by using the word “look”.
Hope you enjoy the video!

Hey, everyone. This is Neil. As you know, I live and work in Berlin. And, oh my God! This week, it’s Berlin Fashion week. Sorry about that. It’s Berlin, so you don’t want to get too excited. So, do you know how to talk about fashion in English? Watch this video and find out.
So, how do you talk about fashion in English? Wie spricht man über Fashion auf Englisch? The key word that you can use here is “look”. So “look” you can use it as a verb with an adjective. So for example you can say:
“You look amazing.”
Or: “You look hot in that dress.”
Or: “You look sexy in that suit.”
Or: “You look so cool.”
Or if you are freaking out about your own clothes. And you think: “I’m not gonna get into this event. I’m not gonna get into this club.” You can say:
“Oh my God. I look awful.”
Or, make yourself feel better by looking at bad photos of celebrities:
“Oh my God. What has he done to his face? He looks hideous.”
“She looks unhealthy.”
“He looks miserable.”
Or you can say look like someone or look like something. So, auf Deutsch: “Du siehst aus wie jemand.” So for example.
“You look like Kim Kardashian. Be careful with your jewellery.”
“You look like a tourist. You’re not going to get into Berghain dressed like that.”
“I look like a smurf.”
“Oh my god! I look like shit. I’m so hungover. I think I’m gonna get sick.”
And finally, you can also use look as a noun to describe the appearance or the overall impression that the clothes communicate. So, for example, you can say.
“Oh, that look is so now.”
“That look is a little bit last year.”
Or you could ask the question.
“So, what look is that?”
And the answer could be:
“Oh, it’s the classy look.”
Or: “This is the sporty look.”
Or “This is the Berlin look.”

Hey guys. Thanks a lot for watching the videos. If you're wondering what you can watch next, well, you can watch more vocabulary, you could watch more grammar videos or you could watch more videos explaining typical German phrases. Simple...enjoy.
Hi, it wasn't meant to be creepy, it was meant to be humorous. People are interested in all sorts of things. And actually one of my subscribers asked me to make the video. I can understand if it's not everybody's cup of tea though. :-)
Well, it's almost correct. It would be better to say:
"I can imagine it was fun playing a model and editing this part."
"I can imagine the fun you had when pretending to be a model and editing this part/ clip."
This was also the idea of the cameraman and editor, Andrea Bonetti. He has some really nice ideas for editing.
Men and women have at their disposal an array of resources for generating greater knowledge of truth so that their lives may be ever more human. Among these is philosophy, which is directly concerned with asking the question of lifes meaning and sketching an answer to it. Philosophy emerges, then, as one of noblest of human tasks. According to its Greek etymology, the term philosophy means "love of wisdom". Born and nurtured when the human being first asked questions about the reason for things and their purpose, philosophy shows in different modes and forms that the desire for truth is part of human nature itself. It is an innate property of human reason to ask why things are as they are, even though the answers which gradually emerge are set within a horizon which reveals how the different human cultures are complementary.
Philosophys powerful influence on the formation and development of the cultures of the West should not obscure the influence it has also had upon the ways of understanding existence found in the East. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical. One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society.
Nonetheless, it is true that a single term conceals a variety of meanings. Hence the need for a preliminary clarification. Driven by the desire to discover the ultimate truth of existence, human beings seek to acquire those universal elements of knowledge which enable them to understand themselves better and to advance in their own self-realization. These fundamental elements of knowledge spring from the wonder awakened in them by the contemplation of creation: human beings are astonished to discover themselves as part of the world, in a relationship with others like them, all sharing a common destiny. Here begins, then, the journey which will lead them to discover ever new frontiers of knowledge. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal.
