Tuesday, June 16th 2009

thanks Valen!!!

Tuesday, June 16th 2009

Dear Valen,

You are also a great teacher, I really like your way of teaching and your pronunciation. Why we live in a different world, it’s so far from Canada to Laos (Asia). And Why I have no good teacher like you. It’s true because our teachers are not native speaker like you, some of them can teach grammar but their pronunciations are very bad. I could understand clearly from your accent and get what you have explained during your teaching but why I still cannot write in a really good essay of a deeper words (academic writing). so, I have found that, I need to learn to get more vocab…. and the most important point is to learn more grammar.

You have any idea to help with my English? I really would like to pass IElTS but I haven’t tried to take any exam of IELTS yet. Now you know how good am i because you have read my comment here. So, If I try to take, what level I will get? The top level is 9, right? You can try to guess first, I am warm welcome to accept your recommend or your guessing.

My E-mail is: kobliab@hotmail.com

Kind Regards,


Tuesday, June 16th 2009

    Hi Juu,

    I think your English writing is very good. Continuing to watch English videos online will help you with your pronunciation and understanding. You can also try watching English television shows to improve you spoken English.

    Good luck!


    Wednesday, August 19th 2009

      your spoken English

      Tuesday, April 5th 2016

Thank you so much I’ve benefit a lot of things from you lessons

Saturday, July 11th 2009


Hi Valen, your topic was great, but I really hope you can make a second part and why not a third one, all of us (not native speakers) face that English daily conversations are full of expressions that don’t mean what we think, we share some of them in Spanish, maybe with a little change but some are really difficult, at first glance they don’t make any sense.
Tanks a lot, best regards

Wednesday, July 15th 2009

thanks ever such a lot
all your lessons are serviceable
keep on

bey for now

Saturday, July 25th 2009

Oh, I didn’t make any mistake! It means that I know English like the back of my hand)) No, of course, no, I should learn a lot of things about this language. So, take it easy, go!

Hi VALEN, your 10 common ueses of English was very interesting.Commonly we can say that four things are necessary to master English language, that are, 1-Writing 2-Reading 3-Listening and 4-Speaking.

I’m an English teacher here in Brazil and I’m Brazilian. It’s really difficult to know some of these expressions when you weren’t born or you don’t live in a spoken English country. So, thanks for the information and can we talk by e-mail so we can share some information about teaching and English??? It would be very helpful… so can you give me a hand? (see? i leraned that!!! haha =P) Hope to talk to you soon!!!

Hi Valen,
Greetings from Burma!
Nice to see your vedio again. I like it very much your lesson. Because these commom expressions are very popular now. So, i learned ten expressions today!

Thanks million!

Monday, September 12th 2011

    Tuesday, November 29th 2011

Nice lesson. I learned something

Wednesday, September 21st 2011

I have here two points :
The first point is that ; yOU SAID ” in ages ”
and I think it’s ” for ages ” to mean for along time.
The second: in the vedio about telling the time you said : It’s a quarter to six. and I think you should say : It’s a quarter to seven. Because you put the hand between 6 and 7

Friday, September 23rd 2011

    The time is a mistake. However, we do say “in ages”.

    Tuesday, September 27th 2011

I visit my friends 24/7.
Ali doesn’t think much lets get the ball rolling.
Don’t be stress take it easy.
He told his boss that he’ll sleep on this issue for some solution.
He lost his job, he’s broke these days.
MD of over company told me the i have to see him 9 o clock sharp!
I like many cities like the back of my hand.
Could you please give me a hand these boxes are too heavy.
I didn’t see her in ages.
They are sick and tired of too much work.

Could you please sleep on these sentences and tell me are they correct.thanks

Wednesday, January 11th 2012

I would like to suggest a more rigorous approach to proofreading. The blurb at the top of your video is riddled with grammatical errors which undermine your authority as a teacher of English.

Thursday, January 12th 2012

hi valen you are really a good teacher thanks a lot i have just a question about quiz why do you put they instead of he :when someone says ….what do they mean.RSVP

Sunday, January 15th 2012

thank you got it

Monday, January 30th 2012

Valen, explain please if it’s the same “in ages” and “for ages”. And “I’m broke” or “I’m broken”?

Tuesday, January 31st 2012

Dear Valen,
I am an English Language teacher and i like the way you teach. It’s very impressive and the gestures that you make while teaching make the learning process very easy and effective. Also the topic selection is very good.
Keep it up.

Tuesday, January 31st 2012

Wednesday, February 15th 2012

Common English expressions? I wonder. Even though I now live in France I was born in Britain and lived there 23 years and I never heard the expression “twenty four seven”. So that is probably American English.

Thursday, February 16th 2012

    The language called English is used in many different countries now. Strange, I know, but true.

    Friday, February 17th 2012

thank you so much they are really useful expressions Layth from Iraq

Thursday, February 16th 2012

Again your dress is not proper for a teacher. as a teacher you are a motherly figure for us. I use to sit with my family to attend your class.

Hi Ms Valen !

Thank you so much for the lesson. It’s very nice and easy to understand but I hope you can add the English caption for the Video…because I’m not very good at listening English. I guess everyone whose english isn’t their mother tongue also has the same problem with me. Wishing you a very good health.

Best regards,
