Hello guys,
I and my lovely friend Nataana are on Skype. We want other students of Engvid to come to our Skype group of Engvid, so that we can develop our speaking listening and discuss every updated topic of Engvid from our beautiful teachers.
I hope you will enjoy in our orbit.

This is my ID : taqveem.ulhaq1
And my lovely friend ID is : natakostova1

Abundance thanks to all :)

Friday, July 7th 2017

    Hello, freinds. I`m here again. I`m with the idea of taqveem!
    I think we will really have a good time speaking English.
    Most of all I liked Emma`s advice of using cellphones to determine our mistakes. It`s great!
    My tip to improve English pronunciation is “shadowing”. It`s like singing, as Emma has advised, but it is related not only to singing, but to watching films. See you!

    Saturday, July 8th 2017

Thank you for your great video. I had nine out of ten.
I thought the best reply was “Practice frequently” but I’m sorry I forgot “All of these tips can help your pronunciation”. “Practice frequently” was included in the second sentence. Thanks to you, I master my english. Best regards. Marie-Claude.
Please tell me if I have to use reply or answer in that case.

Friday, July 7th 2017

Good lesson. Thanks Emma!!!!!

Friday, July 7th 2017

What would be of us without the advice of our teacher Emma? Surely we would be lost in translation whichever was the case. But anyway, it has been a complete explanation about improving our pronunciation, good tips to implement our skills with our speaking, overall “Practice Makes Perfect”. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, your help is very appreciated and useful, as always in Engvid.
