Video: Positive English: 15 expressions to encourage and praise others

It's easy to be critical and judgmental of other people. Many of us criticize and judge on a regular basis. It's only human. However, it is much more useful--and much more human!--to be kind and encouraging.


In my latest video, I provide 15 expressions to encourage and praise others. You will learn phrases like “Go for it,” “You got this,” “Way to go,” “You did it,” “Good work,” and more! Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, there is something useful here for you. These phrases are useful to encourage your friends who are going into a job interview, preparing for a test, starting a new relationship, or who just need someone to give them a small positive push in the right direction. Check out the quiz once you’ve watched the lesson. You’re gonna rock it, so go for it!


As a bonus for reading this blog post, here are a few more common things you can say to encourage someone, or to push them in the right direction.


"Do your best."

"Give it your best shot."

"It's worth a shot." (There are many potential benefits if you do this, so why not try your best?)

"Why not?"

"You should go for it."

"What have you got to lose?"

"You've got everything to gain, and nothing to lose."

"Put yourself out there." (Put yourself in a position where people can see you. Don't just be paralyzed by indecision.)

"Give it your all!"


I hope you have found this video and this post encouraging. I wish you nothing but success in your studies and in your life!
