925 English Lesson 32 – How to Generalize in English

YouTube video

In today’s 925 English video lesson, we’re going to learn how to make generalizations in English.

Don’t you hate it when people say things like “Americans are rude?” I mean, not all Americans are rude. And people in other countries are rude too. It’s simply not helpful to say something is true of a whole group of people. When it’s negative like that, it feels wrong.

But it can be helpful to describe a group of people, as long as we are clear that it’s not everyone we’re talking about. We call this a “generalization.” For example, “many of my friends work in finance.” I’m making a generalization about my friends. And it doesn’t have to be people. If I say “most of our online sales come from Europe,” I’m generalizing about sales.
