    😭😢
    Congratulations again.
    You know, I go to school in the morning, so it’s not fair, because my cellphone is not with me.😣😒

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

      And I also don’t have any access to personal computer or laptop.

      Sunday, February 5th 2017

        nkh.453, are you allowed to take your sell phone with you to school, aren’t you?
        Is it prohibited? Will you be punished for it?
        We can bring them to school, but we can’t speak during the lesson.

        Sunday, February 5th 2017

          No in my country students are not allowed to take cellphone with themselves. But I think in some special schools in IRAN students are allowed to do that. How ever there are some students who disobey. But I disagree with being disobedient.

          Sunday, February 5th 2017

          i think one should be allowed to take the cell phones, one can have emergency too. It is equally important to avoid wasting time on cell phone while attending a class.

          Monday, February 6th 2017

          Good day, M.Ehsan! It’s a very controversial question! Everything depends on the responsibility of students. Many of them are get disturbed easily especially with cellphones. I think there should be some punishment for using phones by students without teacher’s allowance. Maybe even penalty.
          I’m glad to meet you. Have a nice day!

          Thursday, February 9th 2017

      Yes, it’s not fair at all. But just think about my prize. Now I must eat it!
      I don’t like worm.
      I don’t like worms. Both are correct, neither to eat, nor to look at.
      But I often feed our hens and the rooster with worms in summer. We’ve got country house and do garderning sometimes, and if I find worms I always take them to our birds. They adore worms! And fight for them. Some hens are rather clever: they walk around a person with a shovel and get more delicacy…
      Have a nice day!

      Sunday, February 5th 2017

        😄 you’re right. But unfortunately I don’t know what you should do with your prise. Just forget about it and refuse your prise!!!
        And your expression about hens was interesting.Good for them that they can eat worms and they’re also not forced to reject their prise for their fight to be the early bird.

        Sunday, February 5th 2017

    price that someone help me practice English. Because I do not have much time and…

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    Thank you. SKIKDA! Please, read StruggleForEnglish’s comment to the previous James’s lesson. It is very hilarious! I don’t know how to send you link.
    At least I’ve got the idea, why I’ve got the prise, thank to him. You give me way to eat my prize-worms as you prefer something delicious, don’t you?

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

      you’re welcome nataanaa ,regaed your perseverance and your determination you deserve a great prise and i hope it will be achieving your goals in english

      Sunday, February 5th 2017

There is a website called [speech yard] 2 improve Ur English
and another 1 its name is [story nory]
Don’t be Lackadaisical and try 2 practice over there

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    hi kotoz your words inspire that you are excellent in english. aren’t you?

    Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Thanks Emma.
What surprised me is that it is possible to call a pet boy or girl, it was very weird for me because in our language boy and girl are two nouns used only for human being.
nataanna and SKIKDA, you are so early today.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    Yes, I remember in my english lessons in university our teacher told us that everything, including little babies, call “it”

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thanks Emma. Your vídeos are great! I’ve learned so much watching your videos.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Very good topic for me because I am animal doctor. I work with cats and dogs!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

9 correct out of 10 sounds good

Sunday, February 5th 2017

A very useful lesson. A lot of thanks to Emma.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thanks Emma, very much!
Here in Russia we also pet animals as members of the family. My cat always not only shares my bed, but she lays on! my chest. I sleep very careful not to disturb her.
Because of the same climate our dogs wear clothes outside in winter. It looks funny.
I’m very grateful to Emma not only for this lesson but for revealing some personal details. You show us the member of the family!!! Thank you! Even moeHe’s so cute! He loves you. Even more!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    I’m going to break tradition here to share a dog gif, because dogs wearing clothes are funny:

    Monday, February 6th 2017

    Something happened with my cellphone. It submitted unfinished comment, sorry. Thank you, Emma , one more time

    Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Thanks Emma

Sunday, February 5th 2017

i answered 7 out of ten .. without watching the vid .. what does this mean ?

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    I think this mean you have made 3 incorrect answers ;)

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

    that means ‘ you answered 7 questions and you don’t complete the other questions.

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

    But i think it means you could answer to seven questions with out watching the video. So it’s great.

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

    This mean that if you had watched the video you would have hit 100%.

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

Nice lesson, thanks for you Emma and for your dog Gismo! Does Gismo understand commands? And how it say in English correctly? How are main commands for dogs sound in English? Thank you in advance for answers

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thank you Emma

Sunday, February 5th 2017

hi emma i was wondering, how about if i say ‘ i like your dog ‘ is that mean that ‘ i want to eat your dog’

Sunday, February 5th 2017

It’s very good lession ! Thanks Emma, and I just thinking it’ll better when we have a story about our pets like one topic when talking about them. Didn’t it ?

Sunday, February 5th 2017

hi emma ‘ does Gizmo speak english’

Sunday, February 5th 2017

10/10. Thank you very much Emma. Woof woof

Sunday, February 5th 2017

I missed the easiest one.. 9 out of 10

Sunday, February 5th 2017

how about the expression ‘ puppy love’ why we related puppy with love wich means ‘fleeting love’ can anyone give his opinion ?

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    “Puppy love” usually refers to young love, like someone’s first crush. There’s also the term “puppy fat” or “baby fat” for the body fat that babies and children have before they grow up. In both cases “puppy” means being childlike or young.

    Strangely, we don’t say “dog love” to mean grown-up love or say a fat adult has “dog fat”.

    Monday, February 6th 2017

      thaks a lot engvid for this clarification.

      Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Excellent topic for animal lovers. Thank you Emma.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Very, very sweet lesson. Thanks Emma.
You are right Ihasa Apso Papillons Mix are so nice…

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Congratulation

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thanks for lesson. In Russia we love a pets too, and they are our family members.I had the cat for the 16 years, unfortunately he died in 2011. He was like my little brother, we grew up together. From this time forward i can’t make a pet (am I correct?), ‘cos I miss him very much

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Hello Emma and Gizmo. Thank you for sharing this very useful English video lesson.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

thanks Emma!!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

This is my firt time at Engvid,great job,thank you!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thanks Emma , interesting video

Sunday, February 5th 2017

thanks
I also learn one more today.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Hi Emma! You and Gizmo gave a very nice and fun lesson.Thanks.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Gizmo! :) The name reminds me ‘Gizem’ Very popular Turkish name

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    Hi! Yes, you are right! Names can be very confusing in different cultures. My family had some trouble few years ago. We have a dog. His name is Han. But unfortunately, we don’t know that it’s a very popular name in Azerbaijan, maybe in Turkey as well.
    And as you may guess we have a neighbor named the same way!!! In the village! Russian village there is a dog and a man, named Han.
    We knew that when our dog was two years old and it was too late to change his name. And it happend while we were looking for our Han and were calling him. But some woman came to my father and asked him: “Do you know my husband, why are you calling him, he isn’t at home…” It wasn’t funny that moment, but we made friends. Now we try not call the dog loudly, though he is old and a bit deaf.
    Take care!

    Monday, February 6th 2017

      What a cool life you have Natanna. All of these things that you mention in your comments are interesting to me, And sometimes they make me laugh.

      Monday, February 6th 2017

        I live an ordinary life, unfortunately. I have a boring job, I don’t like it. And I try to change my life. I want to be a teacher, so I’m here to study (l haven’t got money or free time to enter the University).
        I’ve read recently: find a job you like and you’ll never work again.
        I wish you study what makes you happy. And I promise to make you laugh as much as I can!

        Monday, February 6th 2017

          Thanks for your kindness. Yes, it’s not pleasant to do things that you don’t like, so I hope you can change your life into a better life. I wish you a funner and more pleasant life.
          I have a question too. I think you know Mr Bonjour was a constant member here. And he was so active. But newly I’ve not seen him here. Do you know the reason???

          Monday, February 6th 2017

          Thank you as well. Unfortunately, I haven’t met MrBonjour yet. I will search for him in comments and offer him something he can’t refuse.. I mean English knowledge vitamin.
          There wasn’t any new lesson today. So, it’s coming tomorrow… I think. I’m prepared for a fight. What about you?
          Who’ll comment the first the next time, he’ll be the top dog!!!!

          Monday, February 6th 2017

          maybe he will be me . i hope.

          Monday, February 6th 2017

          You were the top dog, I was the bird with a worm, who`ll be THE BIG FISH?
          May be nkh453?

          Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Very nice lesson Emma. Thanks Emma and thanks Gizmo!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Thanks Emma I love your theaching way… And I have a black and white dog, too.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

Judging from this lesson, i reckon i must be going.)
I`ve watched every lesson thus far and learned some things i should have learned. Now it`s all the same to me like beating a dead horse).So thank you guys, EngVid is higly worthwhile experience and you`ve all been awesome teachers!Good bye and Good luck!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

It has been a quite cute and amused lesson, and besides with a pet named Gizmo which is a nice dog but only I have missed its bark, or maybe his “woof woof” sound because I haven’t listened to him doing his “ruff ruff”, but anyway, it has been a funny and interesting topic about pets and its features in western lands. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, it was very good to learn with you again.

Sunday, February 5th 2017

    Sorry, I have realised that Gizmo has barked once but I didn’t have noted it. It’s normal to hear dogs barking and making noise, they lick and smell almost all the time. It has been listening twice the lesson to realise that Gizmo barked, it’s been a curious sensation. Thanks again.

    Sunday, February 5th 2017

thanks so much!

Sunday, February 5th 2017

very nice video and very useful
thanks a lot dear

Monday, February 6th 2017

This lesson was awesome. I have a beautiful dog, actually, a big dog. However I have a question. Do you have a name to dogs without breed? In Brazil we call them of “vira-lata” that means: “turn the can”. I have found: mutt. Is it? Thank you Emma.

Monday, February 6th 2017

    Yes, “mutt”! Another word you might see in older works is “mongrel”.

    Monday, February 6th 2017

Thanks Emma, and your dog is very cute!

Monday, February 6th 2017

It is good lessons for us… thz for your teaching.

Monday, February 6th 2017

Thank you Emma:) Gizmo is very nice dog! I dream about German (or maybe Belgian) Shepherd.
I found interesting question in this lesson:
“How long have you had your dog for?” We use ‘for’ because answer could be “I have had my dog for three years.” Is it true?

Monday, February 6th 2017

Dear Emma. NOW I put a comment for you, while I’ve watched the video completely before. I just can tell you an iterative sentence; you’re awesome and thank you a lot

Monday, February 6th 2017

Thanks. You helped me !

Monday, February 6th 2017

hello Emma, this is one of an easiest and funniest lesson for me. I have some kinda friends that match with names you taught us. I really make fun with my friends calling them with these names. :)

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Hi, Emma. It seems there is a mistake in the question 5. The site said that the correct answer is not “bark”. The site think that is “roar”. Could you fix the problem?

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Thanks for this lesson!

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Hi everyone thank you Emma, great lessonthat i knocked my teenage, at that time i have had a dog that name billo.If i compare my dog with Gizmo i would say my billo is so clevar then gizmo. Gizmo,was looking so weak.

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

Hi Emma, thanks for this lesson, it was very interesting. Of course, talking about pets is quite fun, it can make people have nice conversations while practicing english.

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

I’m not fan of dogs but you shoud’ve picked up a tiger. they’re more cute

    Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Tuesday, February 7th 2017

    thenk not correct ….thank you .

    Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Hi Emma,thank you very much,I love your videos so much.It’s a really fun way to study. I hope more students can study from your videos, but in China it is not allowed to play YOUTUBE videos, can I transfer your videos to another kind of video player and put on a Chinese website?
Thank you very much!

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

It’s quite true that pets are ours family members and everyone of them has his own character and mood. Moreover they all are personalities and sometimes we must account their symphaties and inclinations.

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Thank you Emma~ I am very interested in animals. It is a good lesson.

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Tks Emma!!!!

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

Suggestion: Dog lesson number 2:

I’m working like a dog. (working hard)
Can I say: I’m studying English like a dog = (studying hard)

Idiom(s)
a dog in the manger
a dog’s breakfast
the dog’s bollocks
a dog’s life
done up/dressed up like a dog’s dinner
every dog has its day
give a dog a bad name
go to the dogs
let sleeping dogs lie
put on the dog
why keep a dog and bark yourself?
you can’t teach an old dog new tricks

Wednesday, February 8th 2017

    we need every one its meaning, can you?

Hi, Emma. I enjoyed this video lesson a lot! Thank you, for sharing with us your love for dogs, especially for Gizmo! Here in my country, Brazil, the dogs’ sound is: Au, Au. It’s very funny, isn’t it? Bye, bye!

Friday, February 10th 2017

thank u , my best teacher

Saturday, February 11th 2017

thanks so much, Emma

Saturday, February 11th 2017

So when i say “I love dog, it means: I love eating dog.
Well, i should take care of this because people eat dog in my country but me.
So how do you guys think about eating dog ?
Btw, thank you Emma :D

Saturday, February 11th 2017

well done

Saturday, February 11th 2017

Gizmo is so cute!! I loved this lesson!

Saturday, February 11th 2017

Great lesson and a cute dog! Thank s lot, Emma. Still I’m a bit embarrassed with placing American first lady’s name among the answer options for question 4. Obvious connotation to a stray dog. Maybe, you did it for fun?

Sunday, February 12th 2017
