Hey, so let me tell you
something I found online. This is about the IELTS
speaking test, yeah, that English test that you
probably had to take before. There are some questions
on that test about art. For example, do you like art? Why do you enjoy art? What form of art do you like the most? In your childhood, what
experience of art did you have? Now, these are just a few
of the questions about art that are literally on the test. So if you were asked
any of those questions, would you be able to
speak English fluently and answer those questions? If you answered no, don’t worry. Today’s lesson is for you
because I’m gonna teach you how to speak English fluently about art. I’m Teacher Tiffani, let’s jump right in. (bright music) Alright, so here’s the formula. P plus G plus C plus I. Now I want you to pay close attention because you can use this
formula to speak about art and to speak English
fluently about art, alright. Now, the first part of the
formula is the letter P. This stands for preference. You want to talk about
your personal preference related to art. Now, there are many
different types of art. There’s, for example, we have photography or abstract art or minimalism, and I’ll show you my screen. Now, these are not the only types of art. You can have many different types, but you want to first talk
about your preference. What do you specifically like? What type of art do you like, alright? So, for example, this could
be the question, alright, the question is what is your
personal art style preference? Alright, so I’ve always loved art, but specifically, photo realism, I mean, I always wanted to be the best photo realistic artist there ever was. I would draw all day. I loved pencil artwork and
I loved pen and ink artwork. So, my sister and I, when we were younger, we used to draw all the time. She was an amazing artist,
but, after awhile, she stopped. Now, I liked drawing so much
and I like photo realism so much that I would ask
my parents to buy me books so that I could follow what
was going on in the book and I would draw and copy
what was in the books. Now I remember one time my mom had my sister
and I in piano lessons, now, I told you I loved drawing, but my mom put us in piano
lessons and that was fine, all of the kids were doing it, but I had to practice for a long time to, you know, learn the songs that my piano teacher taught me and I didn’t really want to do that. So I came up with this plan, I said, you know what,
since I like drawing, and I’m pretty good at it, I think I should tell my mom that I want to stop piano lessons. So, now mind you, I was only about, ooh, maybe nine or 10 years
old, so I went to my mom, my dad was cool, he was, like, you know, whatever we wanted to
do, he was okay with, basically, he wanted my
mom to make the decision related to music and art
and things like that. So, anyways, I went to my mom and I said, you know what mommy, piano’s
amazing, but so is art, and so is photo realism and
I told her how, you know, I was developing my talent and my skill and that I didn’t want
to do piano anymore, and she listened and I
didn’t play piano anymore. Alright, now let’s move onto the next part of our formula, letter G,
which stands for Group. You’re going to talk about how art affects certain groups of people, small or large. Now this is where it gets very interesting because you start to connect the topic, art, with people around you. It shows that you’re able to
think in English, alright, so, for example, you can
connect it to college students or women or men. There are many different groups
that you can speak about. So, here’s the question that
you may get on the exam. How does art affect
elementary school students or children? Alright, so the piano lessons stopped and I continued drawing. Now, I have moved to a new school, you know, I was a little kid
and I was in elementary school, so I had just gotten to a new school, and again, I loved drawing,
so I was in the new class and I was just sitting there drawing, and then, all of a sudden,
all of the kids in the class came around my desk, and they said, yo, look at the new girl, she can draw really well
and they started asking me, hey, can you draw this cartoon character, can you draw this for me? And all of a sudden, I got really popular because I could draw so well, and I realized, little kids, not just me, other little kids loved art too. So, it made me even want to perfect my artistic skills even
more because I realized how much other kids also really liked art. Alright, now let’s move onto
the next part of our formula, the letter C, Connection. Talk about your personal
connection to art, basically, how you view yourself. So you see what’s happening. We’re moving back and forth
between art and other people and art and ourselves, right. So, this is why it’s so important for you to follow the formula, it will make the person listening to you during the exam or in
a conversation think, wow, this person really can
speak English fluently, alright, so, for example, let’s say
you are really good at art or you’re horrible or maybe
you’re just not interested, you can say this about
your connection, okay. Now let’s say, for example,
this is the question you get. You may be asked how has your connection
to art affected your life? Now, art remained a really, really important part of my life. I remained connected to it
throughout my entire life, so through grade school,
through high school, through college, and
even when I graduated, but something happened, you see, I got a job connected to my field, I was a computer science major and I had commercial art kind of as my associates degree or my side degree. So I got a job at NASA and I
was working as a web designer. I had tried to, you know,
combine art with computers, but something happened, you see, my connection to art was so strong, it led me to actually quit my job at NASA. I know that you know that I went to Korea to be a missionary, but the first step was when I left my job at NASA, I wanted to use my art
to help other people see how good God is, but art really made me leave. Alright, now the next
part of our formula is I, which stands for individuals. So what you’re gonna do is talk about the importance of art
to people individually across the board, in general, how does art affect people individually? Is it really important? So again, you can say
businesswomen or single men or working moms, you can
pick a specific group, but, in general, how
does it affect people? So, let’s say this is
the question you receive. Is art really important
to people as individuals? Now here’s the interesting thing. On Sunday, my nieces came to visit me, and like I told you, art
is very important to me. I realized that it’s not just me. Art is important to everyone
in an individual way. You see, my nieces range in age from three all the way up to 10, so I
have two nieces that live here, and the smallest one is three, and the oldest one that
was here on Sunday is 10, and the three of us, altogether,
were sitting right here and we were drawing together, and as I paused and looked at them, I realized, man, art is powerful. It affects us all. They were both so happy and they were being creative
in what they were drawing and it made me happy to know that art is not just important to me,
it’s important to them too. Alright, now you know
how to use the equation P, preference, G, groups, C, connections, and I, individuals to speak about art fluently in English. I really hope you enjoyed this lesson. Remember, if you want to watch part two, which is available for
all Academy students, all you have to do is click
the link in the description. You don’t want to miss part two because I go into more depth
and I give you resources that will help you speak
English even better about art. There’s some really good resources that I use on a regular basis, so again, click the
link in the description, join the Academy and watch part two, but don’t forget to subscribe,
