    Hey, Alex. Thanks for dropping by and joining in the fun. Take care, my friend!

    Thursday, December 24th 2015

    Hi, Alex! Nice to see you in here! I like your videos very much!

    Thursday, March 17th 2016

Thanks so much!

Wednesday, November 11th 2015

Thanks Rebecca , this video made my day . ( Alex you can add one to your counter). There are plenty of words and idioms using day . A lesson like that
urges me to find out more . I found : time of the day , day time, day after day , day in day out . Even if it won’t take all night long to enumerate the list is uge .
I ‘d like to know the etimology of the word “mayday ” . I know it means SOS but it is pronounced as May day but thés are as different as night

Wednesday, November 11th 2015

    Thanks for your kind comments and intelligent question. It seems the term MAYDAY originated from the French word “m’aider” , which means “help me”. I didn’t know that. We’re both learning! Thanks and all the best to you, tsamp.

    Thursday, December 24th 2015

Oups I had not finished my comment. As different as night And day .
Thanks for your explaination .
Bye and carry on

Wednesday, November 11th 2015

My friend Louise is a night owl! hehehe
Good to know this idiom to describe her!! ;)

Wednesday, November 11th 2015

    Yes, the best way to learn such descriptive expressions and vocabulary is to think of people you know who have those qualities. You did the right thing by associating it in that way with your friend Louise. All the best!

    Thursday, December 24th 2015

Friday, November 13th 2015

Unfortunately, I’m a night owl

Friday, November 13th 2015

    Why unfortunately? Some people work best at night. It’s only a problem if you have a job in the day! Take care and all the best to you.

    Thursday, December 24th 2015

      No Ms.Rebecca, I mean I have insomnia hahaha,can I use this expression for that

      Wednesday, December 30th 2015

        The expression “night owl” is quite neutral. It does not suggest anything negative and it also does not really refer to insomnia. It simply refers to someone who prefers the night and functions better then. I wish you peaceful sleep and also productive times. Take care!

        Thursday, January 14th 2016

          Oh, what a shame! Haha. Thanks a million Ms.Rebecca for correcting the mistake, God speed you!

Saturday, February 20th 2016

a comment on your comment!
and btw, do we say a a comment on your comment, or a comment to your comment?
Haha! Actually, I’m a night owl myself. Thanks and all the best to you.
There’s a site called Interpals, and once I’ve read there by a native American that one can figure out whether u r a native American or not by the way you r writing hahaha or Huhhhhh :

Saturday, February 20th 2016

and my other irrelevant questions are:’holy shit or hollyshit, and if holy means saint, and shit explains itself:), so how come the conjunction of the 2 words come to give the meaning of – astonishing as i googled it. the other question is practice and practise . usually I’m using the 1st one as a verb- I like to practice English every day. and isn’t really strange to confuse the easiest things in English, e.g. I am, I’m. when and how do we use them. thank you in advance for your black hair and for your kindness.

Saturday, February 20th 2016

10 correct out of 10.I don’t know how to thank you Rebecca.

Dear Rebecca! I’d like to thank you for your great lessons that are so productive and helpful for me to getting my English better day by day.
You know you are the best teacher I’ve ever have lately.
