Thank you Rebecca.

    Human language is sexist and it has become a way of living for most of us whether we like it or not.

    For instance , the Mexican government has done practically nothing to legislate discrimination in the workplace. In other words there are few serious attempts to combat sexism in the workplace.

    Unless I am very much mistaken, I am quite sure that the same happens in most English speaking countries.

    Thanks for this great lesson Rebecca,you are a woman of the people.

    Regino

Hey everybody, I think it’s important to be grateful and show it up with actions. There’s an old proverb : “Actions speak louder than words”.Our best way to help and say thanks, is supporting engVid.com and its professional team.
Thanks so much, Rebecca and all the engVid Team for your time and your enthusiasm. All the best!

Hello Rebecca !
I have nothing to add to the comments above
except some notions concerning “politically correct”. They say:
instead of we should say

businessman businessperson
fireman fireperson
policeman policeperson

and so on

Do you really use feminist’s terms ?
Regards !

Yurokan

    Thanks for your comments. Yes, we should use the politically correct terms such as businessperson, chairperson, etc. We also need to understand other terms when used by different people. That is why we teach what is commonly heard as well as what you should ideally use. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Aqil-89

I think it’s a little bit confusing when we have to use infinitives or (to + infinitives) after verbs. Could you help us by giving some tricks you probably know? Either you could make a lesson about this, or not; we all appreciate your time teaching us.
All the best to you!

albertejy

Rebecca, could you explain what the phrase “Kick it up a notch” means?
Thanks in advance.

    Thank you Ma’m from your teaching

    Mohammad Maisam

Hello Rebecca. The lesson was excellent. I have a suggestion. I wish our nice teachers in engVid could make some videos explaining about a short part of movie or a piece of news. I mean in the video, a clip is shown and a teacher pause it and explain about some idioms or words or the structure. Specially the very causal structure which are used in the movies. Or showing a piece of news and talking about that. I think this way is very fun and also practical.

Anahita

I’m pleasure to meet you and your lesson.
I hope to improve my english with your help.
Than kyou

emanuele267

Thank you it’s useful video.

Dr.solaiman

Rebecca is one of the best teachers of engVid.com for me. Her pronunciation and the speed of speaking is impeccable :D !

brownieforme

    It is true in my opinion too. Thanks!

    t120834

Word “man” means human. For example – prime ministry of Germany is a man of a few words. Or I can say person of few words. Would be impolite to say woman, but she is. Firstly she is a minister after that mother, sister, wife etc. Other phrase. She is a woman of hour. !!! She is a man (human in this case) of hour.
Well, my sister is confirmed bachelor. Why not, ma’am?! I’m sure that is clear for everyone. Nobody say so! Let me be first. )) Language like sound of harp should be clear )
Harp is a sexist, is it?
Anyway thank you for your business!

Evgeniy M

yessssssssssss I’ve got all correct

raniia

Once again, you have thought us idioms in your

polite, sensitive and totally relaxed way!

I do like your lessons, Rebecca.

It’s very important (at least for me) to feel
that you care about us and respects the fact that we are just ordinary students and need
to learn the language.

You don’t make a fool of yourself to teach us because you are not a comedian, or an entertainer. You are a PROFESSOR.Of course you need to make jokes, it’s necessary, but NOT ALL
THE TIME!!!! You have a good sense of humour and that’s what we need.

Thank you very much, Rebecca. Again!

You smile, you show you are happy

Sonia1234

this is the first time. I got 9/9. Yes!!! Rebecca, thank you.

svetlankalog

…and to finish the sentence,you speak clearly,
I can undestand all the words you say.

As you can see, sometimes,or rather, scarcely ever I’m a woman of “a lot” of words!

Just kidding.Bye.

KonstansFaust

Dear, Rebecca.
I think, that your lessons are the most understandable in EngVid for me, include this one.
And you said that English is quite sexist language what`s no pretty good for the political correctness. So, what if we going to use the word ‘person’ or ‘human’ or something like that instead of the ‘man’ word in the such idioms? Would been this correct for the grammar and the policy? Sincerely yours.

Pashel

I sincerely hope that I will honestly believe I will try to be a man of his word all the time. Also really hope that my brother will be deleted in the list of a confirmed bachelors. Rebecca could you correct?!!! thanks a lot

AbuIsa

Hello Rebecca!
Hi Rebecca. Happy to find a lesson on sexist language, or how language shapes our way of thinking. I think it’s wise to deconstruct our habits a bit. In France there is currently an important social debate on this subject, especially around “inclusive writing” (I do not know if I use the right word in English) ; so thanks to you and see you soon!

Sakenussem

    I only recently learned about that! Learning French in school, I always wondered why you could use “ils” but not “elles” to mean “they”.
