Hi Emma. I know an other expression with load.
Bases are loaded. It is a baseball term that means runners are on every bases. It is a huge chance to score! Probably you know it, because you live in Canada and Canada has a baseball team which is called Tronto Bluejays!

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Thank you vermu much Emma,

I think your are very rich. Because your heart is too big and we are the big fans of your lessons, Emma!

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Great lesson!! But I know one more meaning of this word. If you know what I mean:D Sorry. I’ m being rude right now.

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Emma, it’s ok to say “Mark was lying, Mark was not being honest, Mark was wrong”, but to say “Mark is/was stupid” is not right for two reasons. Firstly, it’s impolite, especially because you knew the guy personally, and secondly, he wasn’t stupid, he may have wanted to make a joke of it, or he may have heard or read about it somewhere. Maybe I am Mark, you never know, hahah ;)

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Hi Emma, very good lesson about this new word. Lots of meanings for just one word, that is amazing.

Hi Emma!! It was really helpfull I loved it

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Hello, Emma.

My name is Haridan, I am Thai but now I am working in Malaysia as reviewer position. Sure, English is used every day of my working.

I have been learning English from EngVid.com for a long time, but I still can not speak English. I mean My English is not good enough for communications in daily life, when I want to explain or say something, my mouth is paused. I do not know why. Even though Now, I gain more understanding English in listening part. (I do not have a problem about writing and reading.) but my speaking part is still not good.

So, I am writing this comment because I want to know the tips from you how to improve my speaking skills, sometime I feel frighten when i am speaking English especially when people whom I talk to do not understand what I am saying. I lose my confidence** immediately.

How should I do?

Thank you so much.

Thursday, February 25th 2016

    Your English is absolutely incredible!
    I have the same problem as you.
    I can’t speak a single word when i was encountered with foreigner.
    It’s probably because in Thailand we hardly ever speak English in daily life.

    Anyway keep it up pal.

    Sunday, February 28th 2016

Thank you Emma

Friday, February 26th 2016

Friday, February 26th 2016

Friday, February 26th 2016

Friday, February 26th 2016

Load also has a sexuality connotation, hasn’t it? We see it watching movies or series. I think it is a bad slang…

Friday, February 26th 2016

Very helpfull to me, thanks

Friday, February 26th 2016

    Friday, March 11th 2016

I enjoyed this lesson so much. Thanks Emma.

Friday, February 26th 2016

Thanks Emma,
my mind is loaded now :D

Friday, February 26th 2016

hi emma, your explanation was 100% nice and very useful!

Friday, February 26th 2016

Hi, Emma. Thanks for this interesting lesson. I got 100. “A load of crap/rubbish” has the same meaning of “bullshit”, doesn’t it? Greetings from Brazil.

Friday, February 26th 2016

I missed one of them cause the question with “loaded” wasn’t clear.It will be cool with “load”. But congratulations !!!

Friday, February 26th 2016

Thank you Emma! Great lesson!
I have only one question about “shitload” expression. Is it appropriate to use in only in a bad way or in a good way, too? Would it be correct if I use it to talk about something pleasant for me?)) (“I have a shitload of cutie cats around me” or “a shitload of my favourite beer”))))) Which connotations the word itself has (aside from the fact that it`s slang and not very polite)?

Sorry for this stupid questions, but it`s so hard – not to feel this things and connotations and small differences which all of us automatically feels in our native language(

Friday, February 26th 2016

Sorry for answering not being Emma, but it`s my whole life`s problem too)
And I just think that it`s not about English, it`s about psychological types. I have extrovert friends that can know 10 words in English and this fact never stop them talking, answering, communicating. And I with my fluent reading/listening can`t speak a word)) Introverts` and perfectionists` problem)
So I think it`s nothing to do with it but make yourself speak – through ftight, through confusion, through knowing that you apparently will make mistakes. It`s hard but I just don`t see any other way(

Saturday, February 27th 2016

10/10 thank you Emma for this wonderful lesson , and I won’t use them on formal situation

Wednesday, March 16th 2016

Hello Emma!!!
First of all I want to say that this video is pretty nice… but I would like to say that I’m a little confused about why did you use “PEOLPES” because the word “PEOPLE” is already singular.
I learned that I can use “PEOPLES” only when I’m talking about personal pronouns… is that right?
Please, can you take my doubt?
Thank you so much for your videos…

Friday, March 18th 2016

    Sorry!!! “PEOPLES” is already PLURAL.

    Friday, March 18th 2016

      Hi Pauluck, like Emma used that word is indicating possession. If I remmember the sentence she used correct, was something like this ‘ a freeloader doesn’t like to use his money, but other people’s money”. It means he likes to use money of the other people.

      Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

        Money that belongs to other people.

        Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

        I get it!!! But this way missed the apostrophe right?! But I get it!!
        Thank you!!!

        Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

          I’ve just looked at the video again and I saw the example Emma used ” They like to use other people’s things”. It has the apostrophe. You’re welcome. I’m here to learn and to do the best I can.

          Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thanks for a great lesson,see you soon $)

Saturday, March 19th 2016
