The quiz does not have any relationship to the current lesson.It is a noun and adjective,remember most of time an adjective stands before noun and modifies a noun.thanks Rebecca,it is nice lesson,isn’t it?

Tuesday, December 22nd 2015

    you are completely right

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    Thanks for letting us know and thanks for your feedback. All the best.

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

hi Rebecca can tell me about sources to search more on abbreviation

Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    Search online for business abbreviations or business acronyms and you should be able to find many more! All the best to you.

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

Hello Rebecca , hello all ,
I have got 100 at the quiz but I am sure enough that it has no relationship with the lesson . I am looking forward to the right one .
I think the related lesson with this quiz would be the use and position of “enough” in a phrase dépending on the verb .
To be something enough or to have enough something .
This would be a new way of teaching : You give us a bunch of questions and we must guess what is the lesson . That might work !
I am waiting for your comment. Bye

Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    Haha. Thanks for your sense of humour and your idea! We will have the correct quiz up soon. Please come back to check. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

Thank you very much Rebecca!!!
As some people said above, the quiz doesn´t have relationship with what you explained ;)
Just one question: here in Spain, many people say Master IN Business Administration, whereas you said Master OF Business Administration. Is it possible to say IN too?

Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    As a term, MBA stands for Master of Business Administration. In fact, almost all of the acronyms for degrees are the same, such as:
    BA – Bachelor of Arts
    MA – Master of Arts

    However, if someone is just speaking, they might say ” She has a Masters in Business Administration.” Here, they are not using the acronym, they are just explaining in what subject she has her Masters degree. So, in this case, they might use the preposition “in”. Hope that helps to explain the difference. All the best and keep listening to good music!

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

guess this is wrong quiz.
the quiz is for “enough” sentence position.
Rebecca please correct it.

Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    Yes, thanks for letting us know. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

Before I leave my comment,
Trainer Rebecca, it’s more than time to express my fascination by the way you teach.
How to explain this kind of magic ? Smart subjects always enlighted by an incredible soothing pedagogy.
Moreover, and it’s meanfull for me, the goodness and kindness that I guest behind your videos.
My fond thanks for all the attention you offer us.

My comment is about “ISO” acronym, I believed it standed for “International Standarization Organisation”.
But as it means “International Organization for Standarization”, so shouldn’t the acronym be
“IOS” instead ?
Unbelievable ! Since its creation, “International Organization for Standarization” has indeed inhereted “A NON STANDARD” acronymous name… lol
Therefore If we dare and apply some “ISO” process method vocabulary ; “ISO” by itself seems to be
a “CASE OF NON-COMPLIANCE”.
But please, let’s nobody set any “ACTION PLAN” : a such paradox is too funny and absolutely must be saved.

Have a glance at internet, but no clear explanation about the choice of ISO acronym.
1) ISO doesn’t seemed to be related to a specific country (Although, IOS can be used sometimes in England)
2) Some say “ISO” refers to the old greek (ISO for equal), but it figures out that this idea came up late than the organisation’s birth (just after the 2d World WAR). Perhaps a desperate and afterword
attempt to solve the ISO / IOS paradox ?
3) ISA (International Standard Association) is an ancestor of ISA. And maybe ISO founders just prefered to recycle ISA acronym.

The ISO / IOS paradox won’t be broken so easily. And somehow that just makes it even better…

Greeting to everyone great times for the end of year celebrations.

    Take it as it, language is not logic.
    Language is dynamic and change.

    Best Regard

    Sunday, December 27th 2015

    Thanks for your interest and feedback. I understand your points. Here’s the explanation to your question from the official ISO website: “Because ‘International Organization for Standardization’ would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO.” All the best!

      Nico, thank you very much for your kind feedback as well.

      Thursday, January 14th 2016

Thanks Teacher Rebecca, your classes is very good, I’m Brazil, my English is limeited, the Engvid is learning me much !!!

Saturday, December 26th 2015

    Thank you for your kind feedback. One small correction: I am glad the engvid lessons are teaching you a lot and that you, the student, are learning a lot. To remember the difference between “teach” and “learn”, you can say to yourself: “teachers teach, students study and learn”. All the best!

    Thursday, January 14th 2016

Hi Rebecca, I appreciate this lesson. Thanks a lot.

Saturday, December 26th 2015

hello teacher

Sunday, December 27th 2015

Hi Rebecca, Thank you very much it a helpful lesson. example VAT, I saw every time I paid hotel bills and I don’t know the meaning of this word I knew it is related tax deduction but not exactly what is it.so thank you again.

Sunday, December 27th 2015

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for the fantastic videos you prepare and publish here. Nowadays I’m preparing myself for TOFEL iBT exam, but I don’t know which kind of English accents is better to be followed (American or British)?
Could you please help tell me that dose accent has role in speaking portion of TOFEL iBT exam?

Sunday, December 27th 2015

    Thanks for your comments.

    The TOEFL is an English proficiency exam created by ETS, based in the States. However, that does not mean you have to speak in an American accent to do well. What matters is whether your accent – whatever it may be – can be understood and whether it causes you to make mistakes which change the meaning of what you are trying to convey. For example, Spanish speakers have to work on their pronunciation so they don’t say “jello” instead of “yellow”; similarly, Japanese speakers may say “lice” instead of “rice” and this would confuse the listener. If possible, ask a teacher to analyse your speech and identify any such problems. Otherwise, relax, speak clearly, and be confident. Here are some speaking tips from my toefl site:

    I wish you the best.

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for all lessons! I’m learning a lot.
Could you please help me? I need score more than 820 points in TOEIC and now I have 670, in this way do you have any advice for I accomplish that?
Thank you,
Alexandre

Sunday, January 3rd 2016

    * some advice! Rsrsrs

    Sunday, January 3rd 2016

      * any- question I dos the lesson

      Sunday, January 3rd 2016

    Thanks for your feedback.
    If possible, work with a teacher to identify your specific areas of weakness in speaking, writing, listening and speaking. Then, correct those particular kinds of errors, instead of working on everything in general. For example, you should say: I need to score more than 820 points. Now, you know you always have to use “need to” – need to improve, need to study, need to learn, etc. Also, you should say: Do you have any advice for me to accomplish that? From this correction, you know that after a preposition like “for” you must use object pronouns like me, him, her, etc instead of subject pronouns like I, he, she, etc. Identify and correct your mistakes in a positive way to improve your English and get a higher score on the TOEIC. My site may also help you: http://www.goodlucktoeic.com/

    All the best!

    Thursday, January 14th 2016

      Thank you!! I’m working on everything in general and I need to follow your advice, but here in Brazil I have not found one teacher prepared to help me to do that. Do you have any method through internet? If so, my email is ale_ttoledo@hotmail.com.

Wednesday, January 6th 2016

    Good for you, Fernando. Motivation makes all the difference and I see that you have it. For even more effective learning, watch the videos interactively. That means, write down notes, create flashcards, play with the new knowledge and keep trying to recall the vocabulary and expressions in fun ways. Then, re-watch the lesson and you will discover that you have improved a lot and your brain can give you the answers more easily! I wish you all the best.

Hello Rebecca,

Thanks for the explanations.
I have one question:
Why for the CEO you spell the word letter by letter and for VAT, you didn’t, you just read it.
Is there any rule for that?
Thandks in advance.
