I got 4 correct out of 10 :( I was really confused. Difficult for me to read and get information from news paper and magazine. But it is necessary for improving my English. Never give up :) Thank you for your interesting lesson, Rebecca :)

    I know what you mean Happy04. Reading newspapers or listening to the news is not that easy. It takes time to become familiar with newspaper jargon.

    The piece of news was interesting, but the language used was too formal.

    Stay cool and keep trying!!!

    Sunday, April 20th 2014

      Thank you, Regino :)

      Sunday, April 20th 2014

I had 9 of 1o. I am very happy. :)) Thank you for your interesting lesson, Rebecca. :) But I have one question. My incorrect answer remains unknown for me. What is the difference between “accused of” and “charged with”? I thought that these two sentences are the same.

Saturday, April 19th 2014

    I was a bit confused on that question too.
    (Got that one wrong);(

    Sunday, April 20th 2014

      Me too.

      Monday, April 21st 2014

        Me too

        Friday, April 25th 2014

          So was I

          How about the answer for this question guys?

          What is the formal way to say that a man was let out of jail?

          For me the following answer makes perfect sense. . .

          An angel came by and took him to heaven (home)

          LOL

          Have a great weekend!!!

          Friday, April 25th 2014

          Correction:

          . . . the answer TO this question . . .

          Friday, April 25th 2014

          Me too

          Friday, May 9th 2014

    I think it is the same too. But in the question 8 I had the choice between “He was charged with drunken driving.” and “He was arrested for drunken driving.” which is similar but not the same.

    Thursday, April 24th 2014

      ‘HE WAS ARRESTED’ means that the police caught and put on him the handcuffs. And ‘HE WAS CHARGED’ means that he was blamed by the authorities.

      Friday, August 22nd 2014

        Hi Lisa! Just like you said! :)

        Sunday, August 24th 2014

    You’re talking about 8th question? If so then look at this task more carefully: there’re ‘charged’ and ‘arrested’ – not ‘accused’! And ‘accused’ and ‘charged’ mean the same.

    Friday, May 2nd 2014

      Yes, but ‘accused’ is not the term we’re dealing with. So we have to make distinction between ‘arrested’ and ‘charged’ ;)

      Sunday, August 24th 2014

Hi, Rebeca! I enjoyed the lesson very much! I taught it very interesting and I could learn new words like belligerent and impounded. Thanks a lot. God bless!

Saturday, April 19th 2014

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Thank you very much for this lesson. I prefer you with out subtitle.
Kind regards xxx

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Learning vocabulary in context helps a lot, yet it makes the learning more meaningful and long lasting.

Reading current news is something we, as language studets, somehow can cope with; because we can look up words,read the text again,ask a friend, etc.

However, listening to the news is a completely different story since it demands more advanced language skills; not to mention the getting used to different accents.

Many thanks for this excellent lesson Rebecca.

Happy Eastern!!!

Sunday, April 20th 2014

    Thanks and I see that your English is quite advanced. Good for you. All the best in the future.

Could you give as more lessons like this? Learing new vokabulary i context is very felpful :-)

Sunday, April 20th 2014

Reading newspapers or watching news at TV, no doubts, are a great way of english learning. By the way, in the past I used to think that guys like Justin Beeber were idiots, but today I’m sure that idiots really are those people who pay attention on this kind of artists… I hope Justin Beeber never return to Brazil. We have enough idiots here …

Thursday, April 24th 2014

What does “pulled him over” mean?
“Never say never” (hahaha…) Engvid teachers are funny! I just love them all!

Thursday, April 24th 2014

    It is when the police demand that you stop your car at the side of the road, usually because you have done something wrong and they want to talk to you, give you a ticket, or a fine or something else. No one likes to be “pulled over”!

    Thanks for watching and all the best!

    Monday, May 26th 2014

An excellent vocabulary lesson. Thanks Rebecca. :)

Thursday, April 24th 2014

Great idea: Learn English with the news on ENGVID. I hope we have a lot of these lessons soon!

thank you i got 100%

Saturday, April 26th 2014

thank you very much Rebecca new vocabulary used in day to day life.I am from india im great fan of justin bieber song Baby… i have a doubt what is difference between chaffeur and driver both means same or different..some people say who drives Limosine is chaffeur. who drives normal car is driver…what is gridlock mean are we using this vocabulary related to traffic?…

Sunday, April 27th 2014

    Yes, a chauffeur is a kind of fancy driver employed by richer people who tend to have more expensive cars. Gridlock has a bit of a technical explanation so you could google it, but casually it is used to refer to a really bad traffic jam, where nothing is moving.
    All the best, Deepak.
