Hello everyone , Hello Gill .
Interressting lesson . One thing among many others that stresses me out when speaking English is to meet people from different places with different accents . I remember the first time I went to London. I was at Heathrow waiting for a connecting flight and wanting to kill time , I ordered a beer at the bar inside the airport . If the bartender understood what I had said when it come for him to speak it felt like he was speaking a language that was totally not English and it really upset me . Actually , londoners are the most difficult people to understand ! It is very surprising that you, Jade and Benjamin are all from London and have so different accents . Maybe it comes from your birth place.
A lesson on how to recognise accents from everywhere in the UK would be interressting and could help all of us feeling less stressed when encountering people from London , Kent, Scotland , Wales etc…
Thanks in advanced and carry on

    What a nice comment!!! It was very good to read your comment. Intersting story.

    Saturday, September 26th 2015

    how long have you been in London? I think everything is ok with you now

    Thursday, September 15th 2016

      Hello ,
      My stay was very short as I was waiting for a connecting flight to Istambul . It is now a story from the past as it stood in 2005 . At this period I wasn’t learning English and the basics I had , seemed to me appropriate enough to have simple conversations . this is this kind of situation that makes me more realistic
      and pushes me to go further . I deal more easily now with londoners but think that their way of speaking is always difficult to follow .
      Thanks for reading me
      Bye

Hi Gill,

Great presentation, as usual, you make it crystal clear.

But can I raise one point ? (Because it drove me a little confused)
As far as I’ve understood it, stress and anxiety haven’t always the same thing.
In the strict meaning of the term, stress is a physiological response from a given event and, also at a given point in time.
This physiological response involves producting adrenalin and all its stuffs, so your body will be able an extra physical effort (“to fight” or “to run away” for example).
Useful in a wild environmement, maybe much less in our nowadays lifes. (lol)

So I would say :
– stress at a given time (and surely unhealthy if it occurs too often)
– anxiety remains in you, more in a continuous way.

In my experience, describing stress is also a smart way to get prepared and to deal with it.
Trainer Gill, I wonder if we wouldn’t have here food enough for a new lesson.
Keep on staying with subject “talking about STRESS” and focusing on vocabulary related with its effects. (be paralyzed, out of breath, sweating, stammering, knees shooking … no idiom coming to my mind, but quit sure they are numerous)

Looking forward to reading / hearing you.
All with my best,
With my kind thanks.

Sunday, October 4th 2015

This is a good lesson, however i have a doubt regarding this;
Is there any differences between I WISH I HAD/HADN’T & SHOULD HAVE/HAVEN’T ?
1. I wish i hadn’t slapped him.
2. I shouldn’t have slapped him.
The above examples have the same meaning?
