Hi

Im taking TOEFL test tomorrow so I am wondering if there is someone who can help me practicing my speaking section via internet?

Thank you

Friday, May 22nd 2015

    Hi there, how was your TOEFL? I hope you were great with it. I´m still learning how to speak english but if you want we can practice our speaking someday.

    Thanks

    Friday, May 29th 2015

    I would like to help you, but I think I m begginer

    Wednesday, June 10th 2015

Procrastinate… now that’s a very long word. I used to look at it and think: “Gee, that word seems to be so complicated!”. I didn’t even know how wrong I was. Thanks, Emma!

Friday, May 22nd 2015

I killed the quiz . I got 9 out of 10
I passed the quiz with flying colors .

Marvelous lesson

Thanks Emma your are my fovority teacher

Friday, May 22nd 2015

    yes is a good video

    Monday, July 20th 2015

Thank you, Emma. I just wonder why we use “pass by the skin of my teeth” to mean the grade “C” or “D”. That’s something related with the culture, is that so?

Friday, May 22nd 2015

    It’s a strange phrase, isn’t it? It comes from a Bible verse. Teeth don’t have “skin”, so it might mean the surface of one’s teeth. We don’t really know for sure. In context, it figuratively means a narrow escape.

    Monday, May 25th 2015

really this phrases are very extrange. lol. thanks for the lesson Emma

Friday, May 22nd 2015

When I was a school student, I had never burnt the midnight oil for tests. Maybe a friend of mine had pulled an all nighter when she was a high-school student.

Great lesson! Thank you, Emma :D

the video can’t be opened.It says “Unable to resolve the server’s DNS address.”

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

10/10
In English besides other subjects, I never understood the sound of the letter “i”. Sometimes the “i” is pronounced as a “ai” other times as a “i”. Exist any rule, for when to use one or the other i sound?

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

Thank you Emma for this important lesson.

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

Damn! I got 8/10.
I wanted to kill it. Now I feel like killing it (with a shotgun). LOL! ¬¬

Sometimes English makes sense, sometimes not. I wonder who was the first person who said this expression “pass by the skin of your (my) teeth”. He/she must’ve been a very deep person, or a nonsensical person. :P

Anyhoo, I thought I was going to pass the quiz with flying colors, but I got distracted and laughed at the other choices you gave (SHOT MY EXAM WITH A SHOTGUN and I HAVE GUM DISEASE AND MY TEETH ARE FALLING OUT). I flunked it.

No, I didn’t. I’m OK with 8.

I’ll never use the expressions those crazy person come up with. :D

I’m kidding. It’s cool. I should practice them.

Thank you, Emma!
Keep sending us crazy expressions!

God, shut me up!

Byeeeeeee!

:P

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

    lol

    Tuesday, May 26th 2015

    Wednesday, February 3rd 2016

PS: I redo the quiz when I fail, but I like to put the first score here, even when I fail. I don’t wanna lie.
I killed it the second time. :D

Wednesday, May 27th 2015

hi guys! please, let me drop a question: Anyone knows what means: “it’s to Fuzzy Wussy”. My friend asked me and I didn’t know what it is!

Wednesday, May 27th 2015

    A racist slur for blacks in England. Originated from a Kipling poem entitled “Fuzzy Wuzzy.”

    Wednesday, May 27th 2015

Fuzzy Wuzzy
(proper noun) The only bear made famous for having an embarrasing condition called alopecia. He was later immortalized in song that led to his tragic death. He was found face down with traces of honey comb on his mouth and an empty bottle of propecia stuck to his sticky, honey covered paw while that fateful song had been set to “repeat” on his ipod.
“Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair”

Hiii every one tomorrow is my speaking ielts test sooo any body give me some tips i have not strong vocabulary…..give me some tips plzzzz…..

Thursday, June 4th 2015

hello every one
Does anybody know wich is the correct form?
1.- Make up your mind.
2.- Make your mind up.
and what is the meaning of both ?

Thursday, June 4th 2015

    I think “Make up your mind” is correct form cause the meaning is don, but in “Make your mind up” up her don’t give the meaning, must put “adv.” without “up” such as “Make your mind Open” and you welcome.

Nighter ?? Traslate spanish plis

Sunday, June 14th 2015

    It’s “all night” + “-er”. The suffix -er has a lot of different meanings in English. Here, it turns the adjective or adverb “all night” into a noun — “[something] that took all night to finish”.
