Thanks for the useful lesson. I think I already knew many English abbreviations but today I learned many new ones that I didn’t know before. It is a pleasure and an honor to learn English from the best teacher in the world. I think engVid is the best of the best English site ever. I can learn from the top 9~10 teachers. I once learned English in the real classroom in ESL school in Canada and the videos of engVid give us really the classroom experiences I can say for sure. We get the education that is only available when we study abroad. Some teachers speak clearly and slowly so we can understand most of what the teachers say, but some teachers say in natural speed so it is challenging to understand his/her lesson without subtitles. IMO, our goal is to be able to understand real English and all the teachers’ lessons are invaluable to us. We improve our ‘feel’ of English everyday thanks to engVid I can say engVid is great input for our English learning and if we practice them little by little then we’ll be able to reach our goal of English fluency some day.

Thank you very much.It was extremely interesting lesson for me and I have not found anything boring here, as you mentioned in the end. I do prefer to write without abbreviations, as it means to me that person does not want to spend time for even typing you a full word for me.(IHO)
