    Yep!!! I agree with you Odai.

    Dear Emma many thanks for this interesting lesson on book idioms.

    Idioms always make language more colorful, although some of them are not that easy to remember and and much less put into real practice right away. Today’s lesson is not the case, believe me!!!

    Thanks a million again for your great work and commitment.

    Have a fantastic weekend Emma!!!

    Regards

      You’re awesome Ichakushina! I’m glad you enjoy the site!

      Wednesday, February 27th 2013

        I have watched 322 videos. I agree to ichakushina……Thanks Emma, Thanks Engvid.

        Saturday, August 3rd 2013

    Good for you Ichakushina, but with all due respect, the question here is:

    How much have you really learned and been able to put into real practice in your day-to-day activities?

    Practice makes a big difference when it comes to learning a language, don’t you think so?

    Congratulations Ichakushina!!!

    Keep on the good work and see you around!!!

    Regards

    Saturday, April 12th 2014

Hi,I know this has nothing to do with this video. However, I’m hoping my concern will be addressed. Using prepositions in, on, and at is easier if we apply them in/on transportation, place and time. What I’m not really certain of, is using it in/on concepts. I.e. “On this marriage” or “In this marriage”? “On that issue” or “In that issue”? “In this situation” or “On that situation”? ” On that matter” or In that matter”?

Monday, February 25th 2013

Hello there. I have read in a grammar book I purchased that subjunctive mood should be used in condition of uncertainty. Example. If she have the money, she will make it in the city.
I used to use has for the third person. I would like to clarify this, because there are some English novels which use has instead of have. :)

Monday, February 25th 2013

Thank you so much , it was really good .

Monday, February 25th 2013

Thank’s Emma
I got 9 out Of 10
In my book you’re a good English teacher

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

I got 10 correct out of 10.
80 % credit goes to Emma because you have prepared a lot of material to understand us or pour into our mind at worldwide level and with lot of examples. We people just watch 10 minutes such type of vedio and judge ourselves while you might take 10 hours to make such a lesson.
In Muslim history, Forth Caliph HAZRAT ALI R.A said that “Who has taught me single word he is my teacher”.
So how can i decline that you are not my teacher. You have an excellent accent.
Welldone! Keep on it.

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

hi emma:
that was very difficult lesson for me.
how should easy to understanding this topic?
this quize i have a got 4 collecut out of 10.
thanks emma

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

    Four out of ten in still good. It means you’ve learned four new expressions. Well done! Practice the four you did well on and use them in conversation.

    I’d recommend learning maybe two expressions from the video a week. Practice them, look up their meanings on http://www.urbandictionary.com if you don’t understand the video.

    Then in a month or two try the quiz again and see if you’ve improved.

    Wednesday, February 27th 2013

it was very good but to me icant understand when the american talk fast and i need it because i have to make a test of 100 listening pls can u help thanks emma

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

Thank you again, Ema. I LOVE and need this kind of lesson. The words change their meanings.Keep up with this kind of lesson, this is idiomatic expressions.

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

I like very much Engvid and I enjoy your tests so I can see if I understood your lessons . By the way you forgot an interesting and important expression:
to cook the book. I watched it in my idiomd dictionary.
Is it correct to say I never cook the book with the test’s results (engvid of course !)? Kind regards Francis

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

    Thanks for your comment.

    Here is a link to a definition of “cook the book” for anyone interested:

    http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/cook+the+books

    The example is a little strange because it’s not usually used in a test situation. It’s used in business, and is illegal.

    Here’s an example: The president of the company is cooking the books. He’s been stealing money from the company and changing the financial records.

    Wednesday, February 27th 2013

      Also in the USA and Canada presidents steal their companies! ! ! so it is a phenomenon in the world.. not only in Jordan my country thanks ALLAH. thank you Emma

      Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

I’m not a bookworm but in my book, it was so usefull and intereting to catch those idioms.. I’ll often try to keep hitting the books with you. Thanks!

Secondly, about expressions on “book”, could you explain this one “wrote the book on”?

Hi Emma. I like your videos. This one is great. A funny real story about snails. My friend’s wife cooked snails very delicious, but he had never eaten them. When his friends came to his home they always ask him: “are there any snails”? And ate them all :). It keeps maybe about a year. At last he decided to try (to have) this extraordinary dish. And he was excited. He liked it. But I have never eaten them yet. Maybe on this summer I’ll try. Sorry for possible mistakes. Have a good day.

Wednesday, February 27th 2013

Emma is very cute) I’d like her to be my English teacher in real ;)

Good day Emma,
In my book,you are shy and awesome teacher, that’s way -in my book- I always understand you ,so would you please teach us another lesson about the all cases in which we reverse the subject and the verb. (verb + subject) it’s a permanent question in the TOEFL here in Jordan.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Sorry- I hope I haven’t misused the word awesome
I hope it means beautiful! ! ! ! sorry for the inconvenience- I beg your pardon ( I am just a learner of foreign language yet)I checked the Google dictionary later the meaning was (horrible)

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

You are a really good teacher in my book.

I want to ask for an expression I’ve heard when somebody has many compromises and little free time this person is overbook
Is it correct¡?

Monday, June 3rd 2013

My American pals pretty often use the phrase ‘in my book’ (= in my opinion / view) …

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

HI,TEACHER EMMA….CAN YOU MAKE A VIDEO FOR USING “TAKE” I’M REALLY CONFUSED …

I’M HOPING THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT… SOONER

Friday, June 7th 2013

Thank you Emma! I enjoyed watching the lesson.

Friday, June 14th 2013

Quite useful these expressions Emma but I’ve got a question. Why don’t you use gerund instead of infinitive at the first expression? ( he loved to read) Thanks!

Wednesday, June 19th 2013

I wish I were confortable whit those expressions. But why not say “in my opinion”? It’s about formal/informal. Can we use them any time, always or maybe in a specific context?
Anyway you are the best. It’s not a compliment. For me it’s important you speak French because it is a Romance language. So you can understand structures like subjunctive, etc. À bientôt !

Friday, June 21st 2013

Thank you, Emma!
I got 100%.

Hi Emma! What are your favourite books?

Sunday, August 25th 2013

Thank you for this video, it’s great! I must tell you that snails are a very good taste. In Spain, we eat them with an oil olive and garlic sauce named “Alioli”. At first snails must be cleaned (we give them to eat flour for clean their stomachs) and then they are boiled. You can eat them with a toothpick in order to extract them from the shell.

Hi Emma, can the expression “Don’t judge the picture by the frame” be considered similar to “Don’t judge the book by its cover”?

Wednesday, January 8th 2014

Hello, Emma! Thanks a lot for your lessons! I really appreciate the way you get across new expressions through context and situations, not just sentences. That makes their meaning much clearer. But I` dlike to ask if it`s possible to say “be in someone`s bad books” as the opposite to “be in someone`s good books”, meaning to be disliked and kind of suspected. For example, if I have a student, who is neither bright nor hardworking, and I dislike him and whenever there is a petty committed I often suspect it is he who did that, can I say “He is in my bad books”? Once again thanks a lot and good luck!

Friday, February 21st 2014

    Hi Olga! I wasn’t sure, so I looked it up, and “bad books” is an expression! “Black books” means the same thing, but it is more British — it must be where the name of the TV show Black Books comes from. (It’s a comedy about an unfriendly bookstore owner — so the name has a double meaning.)

Monday, February 24th 2014

in my book engvid is one of the great sites to learn english.Now,another point to consider is that we also have to hit the books if we want to succeed in everything.It is of the utmost important to read a lot if u want to build up your english vocabulary,I mean, not to be an bookworm exactly but read at least what necessary is to meet new words and gain confidence XD

Thursday, February 27th 2014

If i want Emma to recognize me as her one of the best student, I have to get 10 score because it is the oldest trick on the book.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Saturday, April 5th 2014

Hi!! Emma. I’m always hitting the books. In my book, the only way to be sure of what you say is only by reading books everywhere you are. None book is bad, everyone have something to tell you.
