Tuesday, April 17th 2012

HELLO MISS EMMA
I HAVE QUESTION COULD PLZ YOU TELL WHAT IS MEAN OF WORD FAKE IT . THANKS

Tuesday, April 17th 2012

    Hi Maira,

    To ‘fake it’ is to make something seem real. For example, if you don’t like a person, you can ‘fake it’. This means you can pretend to like someone even though you don’t.

    Maybe you have a job interview and you don’t feel confident. You can pretend to be confident even though you’re not. This is ‘faking it’.

    Saturday, April 21st 2012

      for me. “fake it” it have some different mean. not only one mean.
      EX: i can make up my face to will fake his face.
      i think “fake it” it mean is esspecial in order to cheating

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Teacher Emma, these are very, very useful expressions. I wish you could make more in the future such as these. I must say that they are essential when communicating & interacting with people. I admit that this is my weak point in English, as well as prepositions and conjunctions. So, please do more.
Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror, imagining that I am having a conversation with another person, and it goes just fine, you wouldn’t believe, I really sound like a real native English speaker, and speak equally as good as my first language. But the problem appears when person is real, not myself in the looking glass, and then, I become deaf-mute, hahaha, funny, but true. This is probably because of the fact that I don’t think what I have to say, but I focus on how I’m going to perform, whether I will make mistakes and so on. If I were about to speak with you ove Skype, I could’t breathe, let alone to have a conversation with you live. So, what do you suggest I should do in order to change this? This is not the problem only with me, but with most of people.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

    I was having some troubles to leave a comment, so I used second address, and result is two same comments. Sorry…

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for sharing this. You’ve correctly observed one of the main problems students have. I had the same problem when I was learning French. I would be able to speak on my own, but when I was speaking to a native speaker I would get nervous and make many mistakes.

    I think that dealing with speaking anxiety is one of the key skills you can learn to become a better English speaker.

    Here are some tips to deal with anxiety:

    1) Take a deep breath if you get nervous while speaking.
    2) Take a short walk before any speaking tests or meetings.
    3) Practice key expressions outloud often so they become automatic.
    4) Think positively. Tell yourself that you are a good speaker.Make yourself believe it.
    5) Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Native speakers make them often.
    6) Remind yourself that nobody is perfect or speaks perfect English.

    I’ve found that learning stress management techniques really helped me to become a better French speaker.

    Saturday, April 21st 2012

      Hello Emma) I would like to thank you for these useful tips. I’ll try to make use of them tomorrow before (and during) my exam)

      Wednesday, April 25th 2012

      Hi Emma. I feel that when I talk to foregners, even with my teachers at English class. I can’t control my breathe and a bit nervous so I don’t be confident to speak English. After that, on the way I go home, I remind myself to try next time. But the next time, i do the same mistakes. You know if i am alone,I can think a lot of thing which I talk in that situation. So your lessons really useful for me. I hope you and ENGVID have a lot of good lessonsfor us. Wish full happy from Vietnam. Thanks Emma and ENGVID.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Hi Emma.
I appreciate your class. Nowadays I need to watch your video two or three times, because this is my first year learning English. Finally I can understand all the three common English expressions.
KIND REGARDS!

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Emma,

Thanks a lot for your information
about the expression “ring a bell”. A very concise class.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Hi Emma
I have a question about noun modified for example, The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower. when do we put dash and ed? Do you have a lesson about this?
Thanks.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Hello Emma! Actually, it is my first time watching your teaching videos and I am really interested it. Hope you could keep making more high quality videos like this.
Here, please allow me have a little question to ask. These 3 expressions that you talked about can only be used in the spoken language, rather than in the written language. Is that right? I mean they are all informal expressions, aren’t they? Thanks in advance!

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

    Hi Elvis,

    You’re right. These expressions are informal and used in conversation. They are not common in writing.

    Saturday, April 21st 2012

I m sad about my english.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

    Why are you sad about your English Rida?

    English is a difficult language to learn and it does take a long time.

    Don’t be hard on yourself. I’m sure everyone on this site has at some point felt bad about their English skills. What may help you feel better is learning how to recognize what your strengths are and be proud of those. Some students have difficulty speaking, but reading comes naturally to them. Other students are great listeners but have trouble with spelling. Every student has a strength; find out what yours are.

    Saturday, April 21st 2012

    I’m Pianist since being 14 years old.

    It’s the most difficult thing I do in my life…now I’m 35 years old…but I never give up.

    -If you like it…just do it.
    -Be always your best beginner version.
    -Keep on, and you don’t stop till you get enough.
    -Just try…and you’ll have more than you wait.
    -Write a schedule. I have a notebook with three items: NEW WORDS (I repeat them all the day); PRONUNCIATION; and GRAMMAR (included slam, sentences, etc).

    And I’m doing a list with phrases invented by me with the new words (as Emma recomended).

    Some times I go to details trying listen every word native speakers say.

    But some times I just hear…and other times I repeat as a parrot in real time.

    Some times I just write or see news.

    Don’t give up…do your best every day. You’re not alone. All we here are doing the best.

    Tuesday, August 14th 2012

Emma, you really are a very special kind of woman! Wish you the best!

Thanks It is very important lesson

Saturday, April 21st 2012

Hi Emma you must recomment your fans (: I understood hard first expression

“that reminds me”

thanks for lesson

Saturday, April 21st 2012

    Hi muttipikims,

    We use ‘that reminds me’ if we are having a conversation with someone, and something said in the conversation makes us think of something else.

    For example, imagine we are talking about soccer. You’re talking about your favourite team. As your talking, I remember that a player from that team is signing autographs in Toronto. I say to you, “That reminds me, did you hear that Luis Suarez is visiting Toronto this weekend and signing autographs at the bookstore?” In this conversation, hearing the word soccer made me remember the fact that a soccer player is coming to town.

    Let me know if you need more examples of this expression. Thank you for your question.

    That reminds me, I’d like to thank you all for your questions and comments.

    Saturday, April 21st 2012

      oo thanks for your replying .I understand now and sure you explained clearly with example.
      “That reminds me” we use this expression in our language thanks again we are waiting for your new lessons (:

      Tuesday, May 1st 2012

I really love your classes ! I like your way to teach ! Thank you so ! ;)

Saturday, April 21st 2012

I have no visa card once I got one I will support engvid.com

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

Hi, Emma, the lesson is quite interesting!Now, will you please tell me how this sentence can be changed into the passive voice? ‘He likes people call him sir’

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

Hii Emma,
This is the first time I am going to pen down to you as I haven’t submitted any comment so far.Today, I intend to write down some sentences showing how the word “could” can be used in many different context which gives distinct meaning.I have written down some sentences below and like you to correct them if you find any mistake in them.
1.When I started to converse in English, I could not express my ideas,thoughts,feelings clearly.
(Explanation:Here the sentence indicates that I had problems speaking in English in my early days-I was unable to form my sentences correctly because of not knowing the grammar rules as well as having a limited vocab.)
2.Could you coach me how to play cricket?(Explntn:Here,I have used coach as a verb which I got to know after reading an article on newspaper.I have also found that words related to body parts like “head”,”eye”,”hand” could also be used as action words after going through a book taught to students pursuing graduation.However, here could just indicatess politeness.It says the person telling the sentence is asking for the information politely.He is actually behaving modestly or decently).
3.It could rain in the evening as it has been too hot for past two days.
(Expln:Here, could refers to the possibility of raining in the evening.It is likely to rain in the evening.Someone is speculating that there might be chances of rains at that time.)
4.Ram could have let me know his problems in solving past question papers before getting them solved by our tutor as it could have built confidence in us as well as helping to solve questions by ourselves in the future.
(Explantn:Here could is used to refer to what could have been done in the past although that was not done.It remained undone in the past as my friend Ram did not contact with me to solve problems.He went to the tutor and requested him to resolve the problems he had brought to him.)
If some sentences become ambiguaous to you,I would like you to write to me back mentioning them.
I would also request you to correct my sentences if you find mistakes in their formation,unclearity in meaning or anything which is unnecessary or redundant.
I hope you will definitely help me in my English learning..
Looking forward to receiving a fast response from you.

Monday, April 23rd 2012

    Hi Sona,

    It appears based on your explanations and sentences that you have mastered the modal ‘could’. You correctly explain its usage in each example.

    Here are some corrections:

    1. When I first started to converse in English, I could not express my ideas, thoughts, and feelings clearly.

    By adding the word first, it makes it clearer that you’re referring to your early English days.

    2) Could you coach me for cricket?

    Teach may be the better verb for your original example of how to play cricket.

    3)It could rain in the evening as it has been too hot for the past two days.

    4)Ram could have let me know his problems in solving past questions before getting them solved by our tutor as it could have built confidence in us as well as helped us to solve questions by ourselves in the future.

    This last sentence is a little long. It may be more effective if you break it into two sentences.

    Hope that helps!

    Sunday, April 29th 2012

Thanks!

Monday, April 23rd 2012

Hi Emma !
I think the lesson very important for my skill English. thank you very much.
if a day you come to VietNam. I hope see you in my country.

Monday, April 23rd 2012

hi dear emma,i wanna study there what and how can i do for that?

Monday, April 23rd 2012

these lessons are really usefull.I liked it and thank you.

Monday, April 23rd 2012

Hi Emma…Thanks for your lesson Could you tell me what’s wrong in this expression
That remembers me, I need to go to the store later today.

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

    For this expression, we never use the word remember. It is always ‘that reminds me’.

    The sentence is incorrect because only people and animals can remember things. In your example, ‘that’ is the subject of the sentence. ‘That’ is not a human or an animal, so it does not have the ability to remember.

    On the other hand, something can remind us of something else. A photo can remind me of a friend. In this case where we use the verb ‘remind’, the subject can be anything, not just a person or animal.

    Sunday, April 29th 2012

      thanks teacher. :)

      Saturday, October 27th 2012

Hi Emma, you did really good class. I want to ask why didn´t you use present perfect in the second example (after that reminds me)? I mean you said ‘That reminds me, did you hear there is a dvd sale…’ instead of ‘That reminds me, have you heard there is a dvd sale…’ Can you explain us if we can use both or just past simple?

Thursday, April 26th 2012

I just find out this amazing website and I’m very excited about that, it’s remind me that I have to watch all the lessons to improve my English, after all if worse comes to worse and I have doubts I can watch again, it rings a bell that I must start…

Thank you Emma, I live in Canada for about 16 months but I haven’t heard expressions like those before. Maybe that might be because Canadians don’t use them while speaking with new English speakers. Doesn’t it?

Monday, April 30th 2012

Hello Emma ! How can I start to learn English ? I have studied English at school long time ago. Now, I am 50 and It is difficult when you are not young anymore. I don not know what it would be my first step…grammar, go to school, learn at home ?
My drean is to learn English because I love this language and I want to prepare myself for my retirement doing cultural things all over the world.
With all due respetc,
Thanks.
Jose.

Tuesday, June 5th 2012

Ma’am, is the expression ‘that reminds me’ similar to ‘speaking of’? I think they’re the same.

Tuesday, June 5th 2012

Hi Emma, good lesson.

About “If worse come to worst”, is it follow for future simple or present simple?

In the first example. you were use present simple.
In the second you use future simple

About the first expression, it is the same in Spanish.

Thursday, June 7th 2012

Hi Emma I hope you excellent future.
I like your accent, it’s very clear.
I have seen your videos tens of times, so my listening is more improved.
Thanks so much my teacher Emma.

Friday, July 27th 2012

I learn 3 new expressions now!!!! thank you sooooo much ….

Monday, July 30th 2012

Hay, I have a question. I work with British and they always use those silly expressions which are far from making any good sense to me. For instance, “Living the dream”. What does it mean? If any teacher or the mod can answer, please.

Tuesday, July 31st 2012

    If you’re “living the dream”, it means you’re doing what you’ve always hoped to do. (“She always wanted to be an astronaut, and now she’s going to Mars. She’s living the dream.”)

    You can also use it sarcastically to mean the opposite. (“I always wanted to be an astronaut, but instead I sit at a desk all day and answer the phone. Living the dream.”)

    Wednesday, August 1st 2012

Thank you Emma I love your way!

Thursday, August 2nd 2012
