#EngVocab Emotions

Hello hey hi, Fellas! How are you feeling today? I feel rather elated today! Yay!

If you had a bad day, I hope this session could cheer you up because we are going to talk about emotions and feelings.

Dr. Paul Ekman posits there are six basic emotions which are universally interpreted: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust.

But of course those aren’t the only emotions we feel. Sometimes we feel emotions which are a lot more complicated than that.

So today we are going to help you express your emotions better because today is #EngVocab Emotions.

The list of course is very long or perhaps even uncountable. So feel free to chime in anytime and we will retweet you! #EngVocab
