Thanks. It’s great lesson.

Hello teacher Rebecca! I feel so happy for having such kinds of lessons thanks to you since they’re not easy to find at all. As you mentioned teacher Rebecca, there are several basic but at the same time important things to bear in mind when speaking or communicating on the phone or even face to face. English learners become nervous or insecure when facing these kinds of conversations (including myself of course). Thanks a lot for making this video teacher Rebecca, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be helpful for all your students around the world.
P.S.: Is “chilly” spelled with only one “l” or it has 2? Thanks beforehand, best regards from Bolivia!

Friday, December 26th 2014

    Thank you. I have had several students over the years who went on to become English teachers. Your English is already very strong and I am sure you will achieve your goal.

    If you are asking about the weather, the correct spelling is chilly. If you’re talking about food, the spelling varies and both chillies, chilli and chili are used. All the best to you.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

Hello! It is an interesing and useful lesson!

Friday, December 26th 2014

To order on phone seems simple but actually not easy to do.
thanks for useful lesson!

Friday, December 26th 2014

    Yes, speaking on the phone is always challenging because we have no body language to help us understand more easily. So practice often, and one day, you will discover that it has become a lot easier. My best wishes to you.

    Love your comment! It reminded me that many years ago I was teaching a diplomat’s child and walked into an ice cream store to teach him the names of different flavors. The salesperson heard us and asked what we were doing and when I explained she said, “Hmmm, tasty lesson!” Glad it was delicious for you too. My best wishes to you too.

    Tuesday, January 20th 2015

Thank you very much Rebeca. I am an interpreter using Russian language in Georgia. I haven’t learnt English 6years. And now I decided to learn it because I really love it . And also I am preparing for the IELTS exam . I prefer to visit more countries and I wish I could be a good interpreter using both Russian and English language .

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Thank you so much Rebecca for this lesson. it was so helpful because I am a waitress and sometimes it really hard to speak with native speakers by phone without any body language. I’ve been working in a restaurant for almost three years, and it wasn’t easy at the beginning. Today I learn something new with your lesson “buzzer code”, which is a new phrase for my vocabulary. My dream is to find a better job, that’s why everyday I am improving my English with lessons, books and a good attitude. I wish the best professor ..
