English Lesson – 6 Ways to Say, “I’m angry!”
100 Comments


So one of the things that you want to learn
to be able to express in English is your emotions, and in today’s English lesson we’re going
to look at the emotion of anger. I’m actually angry with myself right now
because I wanted to use my tractor today to cut some hay but when I went to start it I
found out that the battery is dead. So I have the charger hooked up, but I am
angry with myself because I should have tried to start my tractor yesterday, just to make
sure everything was working. But I thought, since I need to wait a few
hours for the battery to charge, I should make a video to help you learn a few more
ways to express the emotion of anger in English. Hi! Bob the Canadian here. Welcome to this video where I’m going to
help you learn a few more ways to express the emotion of anger in English. But before we get started, if this is your
first time here don’t forget to click the red subscribe button below, and give me a
thumbs up at some point during this video if it is helping you learn English. So the first and simplest way to express that
you are feeling the emotion of anger in English is to simply say, “I am angry.” That is a complete sentence, and it clearly
expresses that you are feeling the emotion of anger. But you also may be angry with someone. So we add the word “with” after the word
“angry” to indicate who we are angry with. So this morning I was angry with myself because
I did not charge the battery in my tractor. I might also have been angry with my brother
if he was the last person who used my tractor and forgot to tell me that the battery might
be going dead. So we say, “I am angry.”, or you can say,
“I am angry with…”, and then the person that you are angry with. A second way to express the emotion of anger
in English is to say, “I am annoyed.” When you are annoyed you’re just a little
bit angry. You’re just a little bit angry with someone
for something that they did. Let’s think of an example. Maybe you have a couple of good friends and
you find out that they went to a concert the week before and they didn’t invite you. In that situation you would most likely say,
“I am annoyed.” And it works the same way as the word angry. You might be annoyed with your friends. So you could say, “I am annoyed with my
friends because they went and did something fun and they didn’t invite me along.” So a second way to express the emotion of
anger is to say, “I am annoyed.”, or to say, “I am annoyed with someone.” A third way to express anger in English is
to say, “I am ticked.”, or, “I am ticked off.” They mean the same thing and they can be used
interchangeably. Let’s think of an example though where I
would say that I’m ticked or that I am ticked off. Maybe I ordered an expensive camera and it
came and I love it and it was $900. And then two weeks later that same camera
goes on sale for $700. In that situation I might express my anger
by saying, “I’m ticked. I’m ticked because the camera I bought for
$900 is now on sale for $700.” And you could say I’m ticked off. “I’m ticked off. I’m ticked off because the camera I bought
for $900 is now on sale for $700.” So a third way to express anger in English
is to say, “I’m ticked.”, or “I’m ticked off.” So a fourth way to express anger in English
is to say, “I’m pissed.”, or “I’m pissed off.” But you need to be careful because the saying,
“I’m pissed.”, in English can also mean that you went out and you had too many alcoholic
beverages, that you drank too much, and you’re a little bit drunk. So I’m pissed can mean that you’re a little
bit drunk or that you are angry. It has two different meanings. But you might have a situation where your
boss tells you that you have to work next Monday and Tuesday and you were going to take
those days off for a holiday. You might respond to that situation by saying “I’m pissed. Originally I had Monday and Tuesday off and
I planned a small holiday, but now I have to work.” You might say, “I’m pissed off because
I had Monday and Tuesday as days where I didn’t need to work and now my boss told me that
I have to work.” So, a fourth way to say that you are angry
in English is to say, “I’m pissed.”, or “I’m pissed off.” But again be careful. You might wanna use “pissed off” all the
time instead of “pissed” because the first one can mean that you have had too much to
drink. And also this phrase is very informal. You would only use this phrase with family
and friends when having a casual conversation. Both of them. “I’m pissed.”, and, “I’m pissed
off.” So that’s another way to express that you
are angry in English. A fifth and a very common way to express anger
in English is to use, “mad”. “I am mad”, or, “I am mad at…” Notice when we expressed anger with the word
angry we said, “I am angry with…”, so we put the word “with” after the word
“angry”. But when we use “mad”, we are mad at someone. So let’s imagine that your sister borrowed
your car and she got in a car accident. There is a very good chance that you would
say, “I am mad at my sister because she smashed up my car.” So we use the word “mad” and we use the
word “at”. You might hear variations of this but the
most correct way to use angry and mad is to say, “I am angry with my sister…”, and,
“I am mad at sister…” Notice the difference there. So another way, a fifth way, to express that
you are angry in English is to use the word “mad”, and to use sentences like, “I
am mad at my sister.”, or, “I am still mad at myself, because my tractor won’t
start.” So mad is another way to express the feeling,
the emotion, of anger in English. So a sixth way to express anger in English
is to say, “I am furious!” When you are furious you are really, really
mad. You are really, really angry. When you are furious that is about as angry
as you can get. So let’s imagine a situation where you might
be furious. Let’s think about maybe one day you walk
out of your house and you notice that your car is gone, and you realize that it has been
stolen. In that situation you would be furious. You would be so angry that someone has taken
your car. So when something really bad happens that
would make you angry, saying, “I am furious!”, is a great way to express that anger. “I am furious!” So if we think about anger here, anger, being
mad, furious is like way up here. I am furious! I thought I should go try and start my tractor
cause some of you are probably wondering if it actually started. It’s a couple hours later. Let’s see if it’ll start. Well, hey, that was 6 ways to express the
emotion of anger in English. There are more ways, obviously, to express
anger, but these are probably 6 of the most common ways. I hope you enjoyed this video. Subscribe with the red button below if you

  10. Hi, Bob living on a farm may be dangerous because ticks can populate the surrounding woods and the ticks could bite people and their bites could tick people off when these bugs crawl underneath your clothes. When the tick bites someone clock arms ticks the seconds waiting an ambulence to come. When the ambulace arrives at your homestead, they tick you as cured in their papers and leave you still ticking your wound after antitick injection was done )
