    Interjections make our talking more natural, so it is important to become familiar enough with them.

    You’re right Jade, each language has its own set of interjections to express emotions or feelings.

    Wow! What an interesting video-lesson!

    Tuesday, January 12th 2016

      Hey! Just a minute! I’ve just made an unforgivable mistake Gill.

      I owe you an apology for having you called “Jade”. I was sidetracked while I was writing my comments.

      Please accept my apologies.

      Tuesday, January 12th 2016

        i think she will forgive you

        Wednesday, July 6th 2016

Tuesday, November 24th 2015

In the quiz, it says “my car was been stolen last week.” Is it a true sentence? Doesn’t it have to be “my car was stolen…”

Tuesday, November 24th 2015

    Thanks monac and bigboy85 for spotting this — yes, it should be “My car was stolen last week.” I’ve asked the EngVid technical department to correct it. Well done to notice — your English is very good if you can spot mistakes!

    Tuesday, November 24th 2015

I now want to use “tut-tut” more often. I clearly haven’t been using it enough in my conversations. I love how formal it is. Haha.

“Hey, did you know that…?”
“Tut-tut! Quiet, please!”

This is going to be GREAT.

Useful lesson, Gill. These are all super important in conversations.

Everyone, don’t forget “Huh?” if you don’t understand something.

Tuesday, November 24th 2015

Great. I got 9/10. Thanks Gil!

Tuesday, November 24th 2015

was this correct? I think something is wrong

8. Susan: My car was been stolen last week.

You’re amazing teacher!

Great! Thank you for this lesson, Gill!

You are a good and adorable teacher.

Interjections are so important to speak well English, but there are so many! Phew!

Thursday, November 26th 2015

    Hi fcicerre :)

    You can say the following:

    “Interjections are so important to speak English well”

    OR

    “Interjections are so important to speak well in English.”

    The first is more common and “correct.” :)

    Thursday, November 26th 2015

      Hi Alex!

      Thank you for this correction! Learning English (or another language) is a long task, but you help us very much being a so attentive and extraordinary teacher!

      Friday, November 27th 2015

10/10

Thursday, November 26th 2015

uh…er…um
It’s my first comment on engvid and wow,
Gill! You are very nice!

Friday, November 27th 2015

Really nice video. Thank you!

Friday, November 27th 2015

Thank you very much for the lesson, this is a very difficult subject because it’s about the feelings and our interpretation, for example when I answered the no. 5, I was been sarcastic, sorry about that, and at the no. 7 I though it was politest say pssst! than shhhh! When we are asking for somebody to be quiet. The other expressions are easier to understand because are so specific and the body language is an essential factor. Thank you again, and have a great weekend.

Saturday, November 28th 2015

Big effort from you on this lesson.
Thank you so much.

Sunday, January 17th 2016

Again, a very useful lesson Gill. It seems to me that one of the most important things, when someone is learning a new language, is to be able to express yourself using ordinary words rather than big ones.
