Expressing opinions is something we always do at home and at the workplace. But I have noticed that even in formal settings we have the tendency to use informal expressions.

Expressing opinions is not just a matter of learning fixed formal/informal expression, you also have to support your arguments for and against the issue in question; and in my book that’s when the problem comes.

Frankly speaking, it was a very useful lesson Benjamin.

By for now.

Thank you

Saturday, May 17th 2014

    I’m very sorry, but our videos are only available on Youtube! The ad revenue helps us pay our teachers :)

    Monday, May 19th 2014

hi there are some want to speak english.

Saturday, May 17th 2014

humm I’m not sure, but Benjamin the new British English teacher reminds me someone…Would it be johnny depp?

Saturday, May 17th 2014

By the way I’ve got 100 out of 100.
Buddy ur Accent is wicked!
Welcome to the EngVid’s Family.

Saturday, May 17th 2014

Agree: Definitely, homeless need our help, you must help them and believe me one day you will see result of your help in your life.

Disagree: Hmmm, actually I’m not sure, most of them use the money which you gave to destruct themselves and drink again and again, that why I don’t agree with you. If they really need money, they can find better job than begging.

Saturday, May 17th 2014

A good teacher!

Saturday, May 17th 2014

Could you please check question number 7 :)
There’s a glitch, I think It needs support.

Saturday, May 17th 2014

THANKS a lot
you have demonistrated a bout very importent pionts!

Saturday, May 17th 2014

I got 10 correct out of 10.

Sunday, May 18th 2014

Agreeing: Definitely,We need to be kind to charity.

Not Agreeing:- I don’t go along with you on that as i will on the roads after doing charity.

Sunday, May 18th 2014

Thank you! I got 90%

Sunday, May 18th 2014

Thanks !

Sunday, May 18th 2014

my score was high , i completely answer correct
thank you

Sunday, May 18th 2014

A: Personally I’d say that giving money to the homeless man is a kind of kindness. So,if you have a chance, you should do that. I mean you are not sure whether the issue will happen to you and if it had happened, you would have been glad and thankful for the support that people show to you.
B: I completely don’t go along with that. I reckon that taking care of homeless people is involved to the government responsibility. I mean you pay taxes and the taxes are spent by the government on social policy that includes solving such issues as caring for homeless people.

Sunday, May 18th 2014

Thank you so much! I love your British accent. I hope to see you again on your lessons. I hope that you will try to explain all the details of British English including slang. In Russia, we learn traditional English since the time of Queen Elizabeth. It’s time to change that and start talking in modern British English.

AGREE: Definitely, There’s nothing wrong with helping other people especially when you are capable to help.

DISAGREE: Hmmm. I’m not sure about that. They are not our responsibility.

Feel free to correct me if my grammar was wrong. Thankyou Benjamin. :)

Tuesday, July 22nd 2014

agree: Definitely, I think homeless should be supported by us for they have nothing. Imagine if you were one of them, how would you feel if you find no one to support you?

disagree: Well, I don’t go along with you on that.I believe that it would be a good excuse for many people to stop working and big instead ’cause it’s easier..

Thursday, November 5th 2015

Hi Benjamin!
I like the topic you used. I think people should give money beggars. They are people too. We always say that we pay taxes government, and goverment should help, but they don’t always help them.
Also no one become poor helping them.
Thank you, dear teacher!

Saturday, November 14th 2015

I reckon that Benjamin is cute. XD

Tuesday, November 17th 2015

I got 9/10…thanks!

Saturday, November 21st 2015

Wednesday, December 2nd 2015

Thank you very much

Tuesday, January 19th 2016

It is a great lesson. And the script in Game of Thrones is in the quiz.

Friday, January 22nd 2016

Hi, Benjamin!

Good lesson! Thanks!

Here my answers examples:

– Personaly, everybody should help homeless people because it is our social responsability to help other people ir we want a better World.
– I don’t agree about that because if we give money to homeless people we aren’t help them really, they’re still living in a difficult situation.
– I think so too. Giving money to them it isn’t the right option.

I don’t know if my answers are right

Regar from the Canary Islands :) :)

Sunday, February 28th 2016

You’re definitely a excellent teacher! I learn every day more and more with you! I thank you so much for your help. Have a nice weekend.

Saturday, March 12th 2016

I’m only to get 8/10 :(

Sunday, March 13th 2016

Ok, I’d say that some of them need help, I mean, not all of them wanna be in this situation. So, the goverment or some institution should work on that and find out way to help.

Thanks for this good lesson Bemjamin

Monday, March 21st 2016

TTTTTanks 10/10

Tuesday, March 29th 2016

Benjamin i reckon i would learn it all definitely you are great teacher.

Friday, May 13th 2016

Thank U!!

Friday, May 27th 2016

Thank you for your incredible lesson. Could you check your site “Exquisite English” as it doesn’t work correctly.

Sunday, July 24th 2016

good lesson Benjamin,let talk more about we should or shouldn’t giving money to the homeless man,just personally,i think if they beg you giving them money you should give them a little the first time but we all know that’s not a best way to tackle the problem forever.and this is a society issue so responsibilitys also belong to government and they need to do find some solution to get through it

Sunday, August 21st 2016

Regino,if you don’t mind me asking,are you a english teacher, i ask that coz i see your impessive comments on all lesson i watched, just curious,anyway
