I suppose it’s right he speaks so swiftly. People in America or Great Britain don’t speak slowly, if don’t get used to hear somebody who speaks swiftly you won’t ever get used to it. It’s certainly difficult but it’s done to get us improving. Sorry for my mistakes in grammar…

Tuesday, December 10th 2013

Thanks James. At first, I did the quiz badly and I got a bad score, than I watched the video and I turn out the phrasal meaning, so I set up the quiz again and worked out the last score!

Thursday, July 24th 2014

10 out of 10! Nice! Thanks for the lesson and keep talking the way you do, students need that speed so they can also get used to any other native speaker talking.
The tip I give for those who have trouble understanding is: after you watch it once, do it again using the subtitles in English and then one more time without it. Good luck to you all ! :)
