Wednesday, January 30th 2013

    “There are many children in the world who do not have access to clean water.”

    In this sentence I noticed that Emma didn’t only cut out “there are” but also she cut “who”. because if she left “with”, then it would be a dependent sentence or an incomplete sentence.

    Thank you emma !

    Thursday, February 26th 2015

      very funny oops I did that as well.

      Sunday, June 25th 2017

    Friday, November 14th 2014

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

It’s interesting, some TOEFL prep. books recommend to use passive voice.

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

My Dear Teacher Emma,
I had watched that, but I so sad and tired to night, so If I have a time tommorow I’m ganna repeat it by the way your dress of colour is very nice. Yours for Good Evening at me Good Night :)

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Hi Emma,
This lesson is very controversial :)! All advice from 1 to 3 are useful. But what’s wrong with 4 and 5. Passive voice is the way to diversify your language, why this part of grammar is unwanted? And 5: why using verb is better then verb+noun?

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Emma please please please just relax! You look so excited its really so annoying. I really cant stand to watch you.You are really cute and good at teaching but after your sentence you look camera and hold you hands why?? Just relax please we wont bite you and thank you for your informative video.

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

    Why don`t you take her place to see how is it?
    Do not criticize people who are trying to do something good for you! If you do not like the lessons do not watch them.
    I think that she has done well…

    Wednesday, February 13th 2013

Your such good English teacher. Continue with what you are doing, you are helping us.

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Thank you Emma! It was a helpful lesson.

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

I agree with Ivan. I am not sure than passive are dor unformal usings. In fact, in my language, catalan, we don’t usually passive voice and when you write a passive, often the level of the discussion is hig. We never us voice passive (never say never) in a formal conversation.

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Dear teacher, thanks for your lesson.
Please, clarify this to me…
We are supposed to avoid passive voice but not to completely omit it from our academic/formal writing…Am I right?
I have been taught that we use different structures like this one to add variety to our writing, avoid constant repetition, and

Wednesday, January 30th 2013

Thanx Emma

Thursday, January 31st 2013

I like this lesson, it is importante

Thursday, January 31st 2013

Tip #1: Avoid contractions, but use them in direct speech.
Tip #2: Avoid ‘there is/there are’ with ‘that’, “There are billions of galaxies in the universe” is correct.
Tip #3: Avoid ‘generic’ adjectives and ‘false’ intensifiers. Also avoid ‘like’ in comparisons.
Tip #4: Avoid passive voice (with ‘by’) when the focus is more on the doer.
Tip #5: Avoid weak verbs when the focus is more on what is done (object) and not on how is done (verb). Avoid ‘generic’ verbs (do/make, give/take, say/tell and so on).

Thursday, January 31st 2013

Hi Emma,

Hi Emma,
great lesson!:)
I’d like to have one request if I may.
Could you possibly prepare a lesson on Latin abbreviations that are most commonly used?
Maybe sth like e.g. or etc but also some more complicated.
If it’s not too much trouble of course.
Thank you for everything.
Cheers from Poland:)

Wednesday, April 3rd 2013

Hi Emma,

I have a question on the tip number 4. You said that it is better to use active. I watched the another presentation of Adam, he said that it is better to use passive in the essay because it is made the essay less boring. Could you explain this difference to me?

Thanks a lot.



Thursday, April 4th 2013

    I have the same question, but Adam said to mix them! Don’t you agree Emma?

It is an interesting lesson, but I reallly don’t know if we have to use passive voice or not. I’ve learned how to paraphrase changing grammar and vocabulary to improve writing and sometimes we have to use it to make it sounds better. Can yoou plis make another video explaining how to make a good introduction, body and conclusion for future essays? It will be helpful! Thanks for doing all of this! you’re incredible!

Thursday, March 20th 2014

Hello. Could you tell me if it is important to follow the rule – “many” and “much” in negative and interrogative sentences and a “lot of” in positive ones? May it be an old, not up-to-date rule? I ask it as you mentioned the rule – substitution of “a lot of” in academic writing into “many” and “much”. Thank you for your answer in advance.

Wednesday, June 25th 2014

In the book “Common mistake at PET” by Liz Driscoll, at page 27 I have read that the word “many” and “much” + nouns are used only in the negative statements and questions; in the same book it’s also written that:”‘a lot of’ isn’t considered correct in written and formal English”, but, in the exercise below in same page of this book, the sentence “I like places with many people” is considered as error, while the sentence “I like places with a lot of people” is considered correct. Why? I’m confused.

Saturday, June 28th 2014

Dear Emma, thank you so much for your videos, they’re really helpful! I’m afraid, I’m a bit confused with the phrase Boys’ and girls’ learning styles in the Quiz. Do we have to put an apostrophe to the word ‘boys’? I thought, one after ‘girls’ would be enough. Thank you in advance for your reply!)
