    Hi everyone. I'm Jade. I'm your new teacher! That's my name. I'm from London. So it's really nice to meet you all, and if -- I want you to watch my video, and I really do want you to subscribe at the end of the lesson so you get to see my other new videos on EngVid.

    But, first of all, for today's lesson, I've got a confession to make. I am an introvert. What's an "introvert"? This is a kind of person who, actually, just prefers to spend a lot of time alone. But people misunderstand introverts, and they always think that it means "shy". They think that every introvert is shy, and I wouldn't say I'm shy. It's just the way my personality is. For me, when I spend time alone, that's kind of, like, how I get energy. And then after, I feel good again, and I can go out into the world. But most people in the world, they're, actually, opposite to me. They are extroverts, okay? And this means that -- when you are an "extrovert", you just love to be around people all the time, and that's what makes you feel great, basically. So we've got some people who are extroverts in the world, and we've got some people who are introverts in the world.
    How does this relate to you learning English? Well, I think it does, because it can really help you know that the way you're learning English is right for you or, you know, you could change it and make it better for you. But also, I would say that, in general, the whole world of English language teaching kind of focuses more on these guys because, actually, they've got a great advantage when it comes to learning languages.

    So we're going to talk a little bit about these guys and give advice for, you know, the majority of you watching this video. But we're also going to look at the introvert perspective because this is something that I just found out myself when I was trying to learn languages. I found out that, although I didn't realize it at the time, I was just really slow. Like, I'd be trying to remember a word and really, really slow, and everybody else has already said it or everybody else has already finished. Like, the words came really, really slowly to me. But I always understood a lot, and that confused me because I'd think sometimes, "I'm just rubbish at this language." But I understood a lot. So my speaking wasn't as advanced as my other skills in the language. It's not something I realized until later. I wish I'd seen a video like this to help me explain why.

    So let's take a look, first of all, at some expressions that can describe extroverts and introverts. So an extrovert who -- an extrovert is somebody who thinks "the more the merrier". And that means, "The more people there are around me, the happier I am." They love to be around people. Extroverts also are often "the life and soul of the party". That means they're the most fun person in the room, and people like to be around them -- great, fun people to have at a party. Also, very often, extroverts are "chatterboxes", blah, blah, blah, blah, talking all the time, always got something to say. Extroverts are chatterboxes. And I'm just pointing out the differences. I'm not saying that you guys are wrong to be extroverts. That's just the way you are.

    Let's have a look at the introvert, the person who likes to spend time alone a lot of the time. For them, you could say their motto is, "It's just me, myself, and I." Happy to be alone. You could also say an introvert at a party is more likely to be a "wallflower". A "wallflower" is someone who's not going to start conversation with anyone, who's not going to be dancing around having great, amazing conversations. The wallflower is going to be a bit shy and is going to wait for other people to come to talk to them. And the introvert, also, likes to have deep and meaningful conversations, okay? Doesn't like small talk. Doesn't like chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter -- likes to talk on a meaningful level. Show less
