Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

Hi Gill.. Good for the students that like British accent like myself! :-) I’ve read you live in London. .. But your accent isn’t a cockney or an estuary one…. I mean. Please could you describe your accent? Forgive me but I’m a bit curious about it…. After that … If you like or you are in the mood, what about lesson or more about zero to third conditional? I’d be very grateful for that! Thanks for you help… Marcello

Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

    hi Marcello — thanks for your question! You’re right, I don’t have a Cockney/Estuary accent. I’ve lived in London for many years, but originally I come from the Midlands area (further north), so I have a mixture of Midlands and RP. Ciao, Gill :-)

    Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

      Thank you for your answer! :-)… But what’s about the next lesson? I’m looking forward for it… And I think I’m not alone in this waiting… Isn’t it?

Hi Gill,thanks a lot for this usuful lesson.

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Hi Gill
welcome to engvid, your accent is very nice, we need teachers like you. Your lesson was very interesting. Thank you.

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Hi Gill. Welcome to Engvid ! I love your accent, it makes me think of my english teacher. I’d have a question about question 4 of the quiz : I put “decided” instead of “going” and it didn’t sound wrong to me. Is it really wrong “to be decided to do something” ? Maybe I’m just translating from French :-). Thank you in advance for your answer.

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

    Hi Edig — thanks for your kind words :-) In question 4 it should be ‘He was going to do some gardening’, because that’s how the construction works when we use ‘going’. If we use ‘decided’, it’s a different form of the verb (-ed rather than -ing) and the construction is: ‘He decided to do some gardening’. I hope that helps to explain :-) All the best with your English studies!

    Thursday, June 25th 2015

a new great teacher is here. Welcome :)

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

I’m very glad to see your first lesson. Your are wellcome.
In your presentation, you said you found this site by chance because you looked for rude words for one lesson.
About this subject ask Ronnie. She is a specialist.
Anyhow she is a marevllous and funny teacher.
About you I’m sure you will help me to perfect my English. Kind regards

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

I just listened to you. Congratulation for this very clear lesson and your nice accent !

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Hello Gill
That’s a very good lesson. Thank you!!
I would like have a lesson about “graded and ungraded adjectives”

Thank you!

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Pleased to meet you, Gill! Thanks for the lesson, it’s not badly :) Go ahead!

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Hi Gill and Welcome , Thanks a lot , really glad to see your lesson ,come back soon ^^

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Hi Gill
I have learned your lesson very well. And another one have learned: (would have pp) pattern . Thanks. Also your rythm is good for me.

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

Dear Gill,
You heve have done your best. please CAN WE SAY IN ENGLISH ?: (You have enlightened me???) to refer that you have helped me to learn a lot from your class???..or what we must say to refer or to say that?
——
You are welcome.

Wednesday, June 24th 2015

    Hello Moh-Avid — thanks for your question. If you tell someone they have done their best, it may not sound like a compliment, because it can imply that their ‘best’ wasn’t good enough — though it depends on the tone of voice you use! But if you want to tell someone that they helped you to understand something, here are two suggestions: ‘You did a good job’ or ‘You have really helped me to understand’. I hope this helps – all the best with your studies :-)

    Thursday, June 25th 2015

      Thank you and you did a good job.

      have a good day.
      Moh.

      Thursday, June 25th 2015

Hi Gill, I was so pleased with this lesson and I also like your accent as well. May I ask u to have a lesson in the titled “there is or it is?” I always have problems! :(.

Thursday, June 25th 2015

    My Skype usman.musazai
    I really want practice of English to improve my spoken English more and more

    Wednesday, July 1st 2015

Hello, teacher Gill! It is very happy to meet you here! I felt that you are very elegant and lovely teacher. I think I am a happy student because I could take your wonderful lesson! Thank you very much about that.

I made decision I should ask you this question which makes me very bother for long…

It is still very complicated to understand to me that the grammar of “comparative” with “THE”.
For example: “The harder he tried, the worse the situation became.”
”The stronger the medicine is, the sicker I feel.” Like those.

I am very looking forward to your next lesson! (Even though, it isn’t the lesson for teaching about the grammar I asked, absolutely!! :) )

Thursday, June 25th 2015

    Hello

    I would like also, you dear teacher to teach us about this subject. Thank you for your useful lesson. I am amazed about your accent. I adore your voice.

Thursday, June 25th 2015

PARABÉNS GILL. A ideia do site é maravilhosa. Que coisa boa tê-los fazendo este trabalho. Parabéns para todos os professores.

Thursday, June 25th 2015

Special thanks from Lebanon and I get 7/10 is that good ?

Thursday, June 25th 2015

I’ve loved your lesson! I’d like to suggest all of you to work with long sentences too. It is really good. I feel like if I have more things to say. Learning with short sentences causes a broken vocabulary, and you can’t prolong a conversation because you get used to talk like that. For example, Brazilians like to talk a lot, and feel the need to do this in English. That’s the big question!

Thursday, June 25th 2015

I haven´t realized that there is a new teacher on Engvid. She is so good as all the teachers in this project.

Congratulations and greetings!!

Thursday, June 25th 2015

Thak you Gill, you are a lovely person and teacher.
