[Part 1]

Hello, everyone.

In this video, we’re going to talk about basic calendar expression.

Ok, so it’s a very easy video.

You probably already know a lot of these expressions.

Of course, this is a calendar.

Ok, and we need to know the expressions about the calendar.

So, one the board I have the main ones here.

So the first one, of course, is ‘one day’.

And we…instead of ‘one day’, we could just say “a; a day”.

So on your calendar that is just one day; a day.

Next, we have seven days…makes a week.

Ok, so ‘one week’.

And, of course, “a month”.

Ok…

So ‘a month’ a little bit difficult to pronounce.

“A month.”

“A month.”

Your tongue has to come out a little bit.

“A month.”

“A month.”

So, ‘a day’, ‘a week’, ‘a month’.

And, of course, the full calendar…twelve months…that is ‘a year’.

Ok…

So, ‘a day’, ‘a week’, ‘a month’ and ‘a year’.

Those are the easy ones.

Let’s get on to bigger…bigger time.

The next one here is ‘a decade’.

Ok, what is ‘a decade’?

Well, ‘a decade’ is ten years.

Ok…

Ten years is a decade, so you might buy a car every decade.

Ok, every ten years.

After ‘a decade’, we have ‘a century’.

‘A century’ is one hundred years.

Ok…

And, of course, we live in the twenty-first century.

And ‘a century’, we have ‘a millennium’.

uhhh…very difficult to spell.

“A milennium.”

‘A millennium’ is one thousand years.

Ok…very long time.

One thousand years, we would call ‘a millennium’.

Ok, after ‘a millennium’ we have something called ‘an eon’.

Ok, so notice we’re starting with ‘e’, so we have to use ‘an’.

‘An eon’.

How long is ‘an eon’?

Well, there is no exact time of ‘an eon’.

‘An eon’ just means a very very long time.

Ok…

So..example…the dinosaurs…they lived on the planet eons ago.

Ok, so it just means a very very long time.

So this is not exact.

Ok…

So, probably, of course, the first are the easiest and they’re the most important.

The ‘decade’, ‘century’, ‘millennium’ and ‘eon’, ok, you’re not going to hear those too much.

Ok, just I’m teaching them so you know.

But you should know the first four.

Ok…

So, let’s take a look at a few examples.

3:00 [Part 2 – Example Sentences]

Ok, here are a few examples.

The first one.

“There are twenty-four hours in a day.”
“There are twenty-four hours in a day.”

Next example…

“There are seven days in a week.”
“There are seven days in a week.”

The next example…

“There are about four weeks in a month.”
“There are about four weeks in a month.”

Ok, the next one.

“There are three hundred and sixty-five days in a year.”
“There are three hundred and sixty-five days in a year.”

Alright, the next one.

“There are ten years in a decade.”
“There are ten years in a decade.”

And the next one.

“There are one hundred years in a century.”
“There are one hundred years in a century.”

And the last one.

“There are one thousand years in a millennium.”
“There are one thousand years in a millennium.”

4:23 [Part 3]

Ok, so I hope you have a better understanding from the examples.

So, ‘a day’, ‘a week’, ‘a month’, ‘a year’.

Those four are the most important for the calendar.

And then the last…the last group here.

Not so common.

‘A decade’, ‘a century’, you should know.

‘Millennium’ and of course ‘an eon’…’an eon’ a very long time.

Could be millions of years.

Alright, so I hope you understand.

That’s it for this video.
