    It is great to have new teachers on board at EngVid.

    Welcome on board Benjamin.

      Even though you may not be interested in being a manager, it is important to be familiar with these formal expressions so that you can get into a conversation with your boss/the manager in formal working environments.

      Excellent lesson Benjamin!!!

      All the best.

      Friday, May 2nd 2014

        you are right Regino,there are times that we are talking to people and they come out with expressions that confuses us.as far as im concerned people dont think about if we understand what they are saying.for them its obvious that if a person is speaking the language,he or she must be understanding the conversation.with this kind of expressions im sure we can fit in into any working enviroment

        Friday, May 2nd 2014

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

it was very easy lesson. thanks benjamin. i got 10 correct out of 10.

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

why would you say wind up which rhymes with kind when you normally pronounce wind as it is written? that just confused me :/

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

    The “wind” that rhymes with “kind” isn’t related to the short-i “wind”. Think of them as two different words… with the same spelling.

    Wednesday, May 7th 2014

more and more please

Wednesday, May 7th 2014

you are a new teacher on ENGVID welcome to you bring lessons fast ok benjamin

Wednesday, May 7th 2014

Hello Benjamin. I’m so delighted to welcome you to EngVid society and i’m really looking forward to watching your videos. My problem with English is that i can understand every single word, statement, and sentence of the speech. I can even understand native speakers who usually speak very fast so easily. The problem is when I’m up to speak out, i find it a bit harder, i mean, i can’t express my thoughts and feelings in English as perfect and fluent as native speakers do. i’m waiting your advice.

Wednesday, May 7th 2014

    Practise speaking with an experienced speaker of English.

    Monday, June 2nd 2014

    Hi friend! I’m really interested in meeting new people who love learning ebglish and I’ve just read your comment I found that it matches with the way I think about english! I think we both could be friends and share knoweldge about this!
