If you think a woman is pregnant because she looks pregnant, you should ask her.

Bitch, whore, and slut are all very bad words that are offensive to women.

Many working women don't like being called honey, cupcake, or sweetheart by their male colleagues.

If someone asks a woman if it is that time of the month, they are asking...

If a woman is in a bad mood or seems angry about something, you should ask her if she is on her period.

In North America, if you say something sexual to a woman at work, you could lose your job or be charged with sexual harassment.

If you've noticed at work that someone has gained weight, you should suggest that they go on a diet.

If a woman is expecting, it means that...

"When are you due?" is another way to ask...

Darling, honey, cupcake, sweetheart, sugar pie, and baby are some names people call their boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, and wives to show they care.

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

I had the case when friend told me “oh You are pregnant”. I was that time a little bit thicker than i used to be, but i wasn’t pregnant. It made me feel really sad because of my weight.
Great lesson – as all Your lessons Emma.

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

    Thank you Em for this important lesson, I got it and I want to ask you how old are you

It was the most stupid, fascist episode i have ever seen.

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

    I’m only publishing this comment to ward off accusations of fascist-style media censorship…

    Friday, November 23rd 2012

    what’s so fascist in this episode?

    Sunday, November 25th 2012

    What are the things not to say to men?

    Sunday, February 10th 2013

    There’s a sucker born every minute..

    Dude, think before you write!

    Saturday, April 26th 2014

Lesson Very Good , Emma! Thanks very much.

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Thank you Emma! It was a very instructive lesson. I will keep this on mind. I want to stay away from trouble. thanks again

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Emma, are you PMSing? :)

One a more serios note: I’ve found this video to be quite off-topic, only number 8 from the list is somewhat relevant.. but then again, the mentioned words are quite obviously offensive.. any other words we should know about?

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

    You might have to learn that the hard way :P

    Friday, November 23rd 2012

    Yes, that’s true. I’m not questioning the usefulness of the lesson, but I think the anyone can easyly pay attention to that in its real life. No offenses, I try not to disrespect anyone. Besides, It also shows that to know what to say and when to say are great characteristics to anyone, at any place.

    Saturday, January 5th 2013

    It’s easiest criticize the work of others, than strive yourself in a productive way for the community (in this case, English learners) benefits.

    Do not be a stupid man! Already have many of them around the world!

    Thank you prof. Emma for your efforts and share your knowledge FOR FREE!

    Friday, August 25th 2017

If possible, complete with a lesson about what we should say to women !! :)

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

    Hopefully, guys gonna be aware of this misbehaving words. About “gays” no comment. =D

    Sunday, January 5th 2014

great respects ms emma .it was a great lesson.sorry! What are other words beside slut,cunt and bitch that we should not say to a women.

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Thanks Emma
Definitely I don’t say these words jn the list to women.
One day I heard a customer lady say to a cashier lady “Thanks sweetie” in some market store. Could men say it?

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

it is disgustingdoing thisvideo

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Many Thanks Emma

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

How about things that are not supposed to say to men?

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

In Germany, we have pretty mutch the same rules in talking to women. But in England, in shops the saleswoman allways used terms like sweety, or even darling to me. And I am a man and a stranger to them. Is there a list “What not to say to men” too? A good leason, theacher.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Thank you, Emma, so much!

I learn much from you and EngVid!

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

thank you so much for these valuable points and suggestions.really it’s very useful I didn’t know much of these information before and all we get, we got it from movies which turns to be wrong. once more thanks

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

100 in the quiz!! I guess my being a woman has helped :)

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

thank you so much teacher Emma,but I would like to ask you if you could explain to me how can I distinguish between the pronunciation of (TH) like (then) and (TH) LIKE (THIN)?

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    In IPA, they are marked differently. Instead of using a dictionary, I try to watch movies with English subtitles and pay attention what people are saying and how, even though if sometimes I don’t fully understand what they are saying. xD

    This is why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOw7CdpK44w

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

      Morfik thanks for the link, i was looking to understand how to pronounce properly those words.

      Wednesday, July 10th 2013

but the real problem is “the period”

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    hhhhhhhhhhhh i agree with you sir !

    Monday, March 4th 2013

Teacher-U are the best teacher I have ever had… I can’t express all my feelings as my vocab is not strong..I watch your lessons ,hear your voice and sees your face whenever I turn my laptop on..I not only love your language but your country toooo.
Sometimes, I think it would have been great if I had been born in your country and grown up there….. But , I have a hidden dream of visiting your oneday ….
But, I really can’t handle your language.It’s too hard to learn as I think that one should start learning English at the age of two or three.I’m now 23+,completed my school education.I can’t go back in the past nor can I grow up again.I have been a member of this educational as well as helpful website for more than one and half years,learned a lot but still can’t make a single appropriate sentence..I don’t know whatever I have written in this short comment is correct or not.You may find my comment hard to make out.I wanna start everything from the scratch.I need your suggestion.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    I’ve been learning English since march 2012, and I can handle it. Also, I’ve never attended English classes. I’m 27, so you probably ask me “How is that possible?” I can tell you that all my knowledge comes from the internet. Watching vids on this website is only the tip of an iceberg in learning English. :) Look at this — http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/1235/dsc00038fy.jpg — over 500 pages a4 format. xD Can you imagine me writing this? There is also a translation of everything that I didn’t understand. It took me almost 3 months, of course, only my free time. I think that I would have written it faster, but you know, I also had other things to do.

    Now, I don’t write by hand any more. I translate webpages using google translator toolkit. One webpage usually has 2 or 3 thousand of words. I’ve already translated 16. But this isn’t just a translation, I try to translate the webpages in a way that native speaker could write it. So, this is really hard “exercise”. xD

    There is also another exercise that I try to do — comment. Here or on facebook, so if you or others want to learn along with me, we can be friends on facebook. This is my link facebook.com/morfikov — add me if you want. :)

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

      hi morfik. i am so amazing to hear that you’ve studied Eng for 3 month. im trying my best in studying English. Would you mind if i want to get in touch with you. im a Vietnamese girl. but i cant sign in facebook. My email: ngocvien87ht@gmail.com Wellcom you and every friend who want to practice English with me.

      Saturday, November 24th 2012

      hi morfik,, as u mentioned i would like to learn the way , hw you learn and your techniques,,plz help me.this is my mail add sdsiii1986@gmail.com

      Saturday, January 12th 2013

      U r great!

      Monday, February 4th 2013

      I try to believe you but how could it be possible to learn a foreign language in just 3 months?

      Tuesday, June 4th 2013

        I’m still learning English. That was just only one exercise, read my previous comment carefully once more.

        Tuesday, June 4th 2013

great! Thanks Emma. I think nobody likes to hear those things it is the same here in Brazil.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

hey i have problems in spelling,what must i do to inprove on it .

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    I think the best way to improve your spelling is try to read as much as you can and don’t rely on auto-correct spell.

    Friday, August 29th 2014

I really enjoy this video. I can learn english in my spare time at office

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

very helpful lesson Emma . Thanks very much

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Excellent vid as always! This is my first time commenting (long overdue). I find this website an absolute treasure for ESL students and teachers :D

Please keep it going!

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

wow, women are such a complicate human beings!

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Emma you rock!!! Thanks.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

thank you you forget salary Q i was talking to woman and she told me you’re slut ??????

I wonder because i am man not woman

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a girl. For example: You could say “cunt” to a man, and this doesn’t mean that he is a girl. This means only that he is acting like a girl. xD

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

1. Is there “Are you on your period?”?
2. Can I say: “Do you have a/your period?”?

If I see a woman who likes equal rights, I threat her like she was a man. And questions “How old are you?” or “How much do you weigh?” are normal. Yeah, I know I’m so rude. xD

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

100% correct thanks teacher

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Emma, could you make a vid about these pairs of words?

altogether — all together
beware — be aware
endanger — in danger
for ever — forever
complement — compliment
every day — everyday

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Congrats! I’ve never heard that honey, sweet, etc. are embarassing words. Good lesson!!!

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Thank you very much. You are a good teacher.About this lesson that is the “bon sens” in French. Good sense is an international biaviour when you have an heart.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

yeah, I know now why I’m single, I have said these words to girls. I would be more carefully, if I want a woman. thanks Emma cya.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

You are right… Have a good day :)

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

ummm. No comment!!

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

    Saturday, March 1st 2014

I’ve deeply embarrased just by hearing those things! Thanks anyway.

Thursday, November 22nd 2012

in my country on the job or any place say honey, cupcake, or sweetheart to other woman is a nice thing. In other worlds is another way to be courtesy. Ironies. ;o)

Thursday, November 22nd 2012


Friday, November 23rd 2012

Thanks, but i would like to know when we have to use i would have done something, it is soo complicated. Please help me with that.

Friday, November 23rd 2012

I think this video is like more giving lecture on society than teaching something.these video only teaches not to ask about women’s personal things at workplace.I request u to take a lect which give us more knowledge.I think many of us know this and this is very common

Friday, November 23rd 2012

Friday, November 23rd 2012

hi eemma.thanks for your good education. its very useful for me
i like english so much.

Friday, November 23rd 2012

Thanks. I know it now.

Friday, November 23rd 2012

Excellent and usefull guide.
Thanks in advance!

Saturday, November 24th 2012

what an useful video! Thanks my teacher

Saturday, November 24th 2012

Ok ;-) very usuful lesson… BUT… After that it’s really tempting to use these words or expression ;-) haha
Or maybe its much better not to talk at all to a woman, or use a short answers or questions, just on case ;-)))
And come on… to say ” you do that good, for a girl”…what’s wrong with taht?? well it’s hard not to say that when we see a woman parking a car for instance ;-) it is like saying that man are as good as babysitters as a woman…. NO, they are not ;-) I think we should learn to be more tolerate towards each other, not to find out whether something is offensive or not ;-)
And If we see a woman whose a bit overweight and ask her if she’s pregnant whose problem is that???? Come on….. ;-) haha

Saturday, November 24th 2012

    Believe whatever you want! Do whatever you want! Say whatever you want! This lesson and the other ones like it are for people from other cultures to know what the current standard is in North America. Once you know what is expected, you can choose to follow these “rules” or ignore them.

    Monday, November 26th 2012

      Hi EngVid… well of course you’re right ;-)
      It’s just my weird sense of humour… remember I’m from Poland ;-))

      Monday, November 26th 2012

        Paul, don’t maintain the stereotypes about Poles!

        Wednesday, July 10th 2013

    I understood your opinion… maybe the title is the question… when we are talking about another culture I think is important we know something about behavior, then we could be a pleasant person… in general it’s just tips! Emma said maybe don’t happen anything if you say this word, but many women could feel uncomfortable! hugs

    Wednesday, November 28th 2012

thank u Emma .. today learnt a new lesson from u

Saturday, November 24th 2012

thanks emma.it is nice lesson .learn fresh things.good luck

Saturday, November 24th 2012

I don know how can I appreciate this ?! Thanks guys

Saturday, November 24th 2012

in nowadays even to say ms. or Sr can make some ones angry!!! maybe we will need a new word MsR for those who dont want to mention their gender;(

Saturday, November 24th 2012

thanks emma . WE will apply your advices :)

Sunday, November 25th 2012

thank you teacher for the lesson……

Sunday, November 25th 2012

very usefull lesson!! However, I think these words are offensive for women not only in North America.

Sunday, November 25th 2012

Thank you, very good

Sunday, November 25th 2012

It would be wonderful that you make videos teaching french. :-)

Sunday, November 25th 2012

Hello, The video is so interesting and rich. I really like it and I appreciate the way you covered that. I am looking forward to watching more videos of yours.

Best regards,

Sunday, November 25th 2012

You are great teacher. I like the way you are teaching. Thank a lots.

Monday, November 26th 2012

thank u so much dear Emma for your great lesson
thank you emma

Monday, November 26th 2012

I really appreciate this lesson, because I could learn what not to say to a woman and I also could learn some new vocabulary, thank you so much Emma.

Monday, November 26th 2012

You know, Emma, this video is very insulting for MEN. You assume that all men are idiots and they all sexist pigs. They don’t even realize that it is not appropriate to say words like whore or cunt in a work place. And a WOMAN should explain that to them like they are 3 years old.

Very SAD video. Very sexist. Very inappropriate!!!

Shame on you!

Oh, yes, just so you don’t assume that I am a man, I am a woman, 43 years old. And I don’t make secret out of it :)

Monday, November 26th 2012

    If you could see the comments I delete, you’d see why this video is necessary… *sigh*

    Wednesday, November 28th 2012

I think it is very important to know the cultural differences (especially for me as a man on this topic). It is a kind of interpersonal respect. Thank you for this video. You are are a really good teacher.

Monday, November 26th 2012

this lessons makes no sense. You make it sound all women are like this, offended easily etc. And for women who are like this. Stop being uptight. We are not living in the 60s and you are the ones trying to break free so this comes with the price.

Monday, November 26th 2012

    I suggest re-watching the lesson, as I do not think you got the point.

    Wednesday, November 28th 2012

Hi Emma
Thanks for your lesson. This will be very helpful for daily conversation. Would you Please list your ‘8th number’ adjectives in accordance with their degree of severity. Which is the worst and which one is the mildest among them? That will be useful to know, especially when we do want to offend someone in some exceptional cases or to put some spice into routine conversation. Thanks again

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

very useful i really enjoyed watching it.

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

Very good tips. I really enjoyed the presentation. Congratulations Emma!

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

very important to do not be in embarrassing situation

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

Question 8 and 9 are so confusion for me. Thank you very much for providing English lesson on youtube online. It is nice for world wide people learning.

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

thank you Emma

Thursday, November 29th 2012

ThankYou ,Emma,for good lesson.These expressions might be percieved quite acceptable by many people,because of how often these are used in american movies,songs and on programs.It almost sounds like casual language,I mean especially those in section eighth.For me it’s rude.By the way,please don’t get offended,Your “especially” sounds like “expecially”,is it something related to place You are from? best regards:)

Thursday, November 29th 2012

May God bless you Emma for this lesson and many others. you are a blessing to this generation.

Friday, November 30th 2012

A very useful lesson, especially for those who do not have any experience of meeting a native speaker of English.The impact on hearing these words can be fully felt by only a native speaker. So a non native speaker who is interested in English should understand the connotation of different words in order not to embarrass others. Thank you Emma.

Friday, November 30th 2012

its very fantastic ,but i suggest to introduce new episode to show that what the women should to say for the men ?

Friday, November 30th 2012

I think this lesson is very important if everyone wanna learn English, also learn the other cultures. These are very similar to the words in my country. It’s really useful. Thanks a lot.

Saturday, December 1st 2012

Thank you for the lesson Emma. May be you will be surprised but in Russia we also respect all these 8 rules. I think that for intelligent people from any country no need to explain such obvious things.

Friday, January 18th 2013

Hi Emma, What are the things not to say to men?

Monday, January 21st 2013

Thank you Emma, This very useful.

It was a good lesson for me that reminds me once again of how experienced man I am through you. Thank you so much. I don’t say “thank you very much , I say thank you so much because it comes from someone’s heart.

tnx for these useful expressions

Hello Emma! First of all I want to say “Thank you” to ALL of you teachers at Eng.Vid.com, as I learn so much from the many lessons. I am from San Diego, Cal. and I am an English teacher here in Buenos Aires. I love teaching and meeting people and helping them to learn our language. As a ‘native speaker’ we ‘gringos’ are in demand here, and that is 10 points in our favor. Today I don’t have any classes, as it is a holiday in Argentina, so I am sitting here enjoying these educational lessons. Actually I don’t tell my students about your site, or they will quit my classes, and I would be out of work. Ha! Congratulations on your sweet and simple presentation, I enjoy each and every lesson. Keep up the good work Emma and may God bless you ALL at Eng.Vid.com Chau!!

Thursday, January 31st 2013

it was awesome!!

Thursday, January 31st 2013

How about women that she say to me hi sexy or how are you handsome. That is true. I am not lying. What should I say or do with them?(some of them when I meet them in the first time) in USA

Thursday, January 31st 2013

That was fantastic, keep it up.

Friday, February 1st 2013

Nice to learn from you. Nice to read all comments. Great +++++

Monday, February 4th 2013

I really admire your way of teaching teacher Emma. I usually get bored when I take lessons except for you. I become totally interested in what you are teaching. I hope you’ll give more and more lessons on everyday language. I thank you very much.

Friday, February 8th 2013

9 correct out of 10 – Thomas from Poland thx

Saturday, February 9th 2013

I think, It is a very good lesson, because it makes me understand, those little differences of mentality that people might have depending from which places were raised

Sunday, February 10th 2013

Hi! ;)
You don’t mention f-word in the clause 8.
Is this word less offensive?
Or on the contrary, the f-word much much more vulgar, and the real lady just don’t know one.

Monday, February 11th 2013

Hi Emma,
I don’t know what kind of women you know, certainly not women with the sense of humour hahahaha we are not so easy to upset.:)

Tuesday, February 12th 2013

I would like to thank you for all you give , thank you

Tuesday, February 12th 2013

interesting thanx Emma.

Tuesday, February 12th 2013

Awesome information emma

Wednesday, February 13th 2013

Very interesting English lesson of politeness too !

Wednesday, February 13th 2013

I hate when people ask me if I am pregnant. I think it is so invasive and impolite. People don’t even know me but they are so curious and nosy. Just hate it. There are so many reasons for a belly to be a little big, like having your period, like being overweight and many others. Why do they wonder so much about pregnancy?

Monday, February 18th 2013

Thanks a lot for your videos. You’re a great teacher. Keep on the good work.

Thursday, February 21st 2013

10 from 10 :)

Friday, February 22nd 2013

Hi Emma, I enjoy your lessons. You are very clear. it is easy to understand you. Thank you for the great lessons.

Saturday, February 23rd 2013

You have got very good teaching techniques. On top of that your smile and gestures make you a nice Teacher.

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

Saturday, March 2nd 2013

Good lesson thank you Emma

Monday, March 4th 2013

Emma,I´ve read some of the comments published in this lesson. I think this is totally a cultural matter. For sure, for someone this can be considered “fascist”, but it is real life in USA. I live in Colombia. We do not have exactly the same rules but it is important to know your rules, just in case a foreigner has to go to your country. Thanks!

Monday, March 4th 2013

Very good lessons and … having a look at some comments very useful too !
Thanks Emma !

Thursday, March 7th 2013

thank u so much Miss.Emma sharp!

Friday, March 8th 2013

i feel i’m not confortable when some guys ask me for my age, i find that offensive.

Friday, March 8th 2013

this is the first time i study with emma and i got 100 points.:)

Friday, March 8th 2013

what should i say instead of ,are you having a baby?period ,girl stuffs.
i may give her a piece of advise about pms. how should she loose weight?she
has wrinkles on her face. i cant give advise on my own nor can she. the best
way is being polite but some people get upset .

Friday, March 8th 2013

very nice thanks Emma jan

Wednesday, March 13th 2013

Many Thanks!

Saturday, March 16th 2013

thanks Emma

Wednesday, March 20th 2013

this kind of lessons are what i enjoy of this site, all of you teach the real english. :)

Thursday, March 21st 2013

Emma, excelent lesson, just some questions:

What exactly does she say in the minute 1:45??

and in the minute 3:11?? I hope you can help me :)

Friday, March 22nd 2013

    Hello, now Do you know what she said in the minute 1:45??

    Tuesday, September 3rd 2013

All this things well-known.But in english helpful

Saturday, March 23rd 2013

– Bitch, whore, and slut are all very bad words that are offensive to women.
– ‘Bitch’ and ‘whore’ are offensive, but ‘slut’ is okay.

I’m laughing my ass off. You’re just made my day!

Saturday, March 23rd 2013

I think women hit these questions in everywhere.

Monday, March 25th 2013

I feel sad for those who wrote negative comments about this lesson. In my opinion it was a very good topic. It seems like those negative comments are from people who have never been to North America. It’s not like people are weird or anything like that, rather, it is a cultural issue. North America is about freedom, but with that , it comes respect, and responsability. Keep up the great work Engvid.com.

Sunday, March 31st 2013

thank Emma and what is PMS

Monday, April 1st 2013

thank Emma

Monday, April 1st 2013

Thanks Emma
today’s topic was very funny
And The fact that there are more comments on this page than usual shows that this lesson is very popular among male students.
In this video, you speak fast and so I couldn’t get you at some points.
If it’s possible, I want English subtitles.

Monday, April 1st 2013

Thanks for the lesson like this kind of very sensitive words.Since becoming very strict like the regulation for sexcial harassment, we don’t say these words especially in workplace in Japan as well. But appreciate for the very useful lesson.Emma.

Saturday, April 6th 2013

In America, you will see the wonders of things, a lot of questions women are sensitive from it and sometimes they will hate you because of these questions. By the way all like these questions are normally in my culture there is no problem with them. Thanks a lot Emma. We need more to learn from you.

Tuesday, April 9th 2013

thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanx Emma your lesson is very interesting

Friday, April 12th 2013

thanks you Emma

Saturday, April 13th 2013

i like to learn different cultures so thank you to know it Emma. you so wonderful teacher! please keep it up.

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

Thanks for this topic Emma! Now I can see the truth about my male colleagues :D

Thursday, April 18th 2013

    Give ’em hell, OK? :)

    Friday, April 19th 2013

      Definitely ! :)

      Friday, April 19th 2013

wow i got 10 out of 10

Monday, April 22nd 2013

i got 90 :)

Monday, April 29th 2013

I live in Montreal and when I had my first job here, my manager often said me “You’re hot”, “you’re beautiful”, “I like the way you’re dressed up today” and one of my colleague used to call me “hey sexy”.
That made me feel very very uncomfortable, and they liked to see my face becoming red when they said me those phrases. It was like a game for them, very hard for me.
In another job, the CFO asked me to dress up with sexy short dresses. i was more confident at this time so i just told him to apologize and never ever ask for this again.
I have never had such those problems in France and I often wonder what is the problem of canadian men at work, some of them are very pervert and yet I work in places that people are supposed to be very elegant.

Wednesday, May 1st 2013

Thank you, Emma!
It was very useful lesson.

I suggest you to make a lesson about things that we shouldn’t say to all the people. Including maybe some undesirable topics people don’t want to talk about.

These are some things:

– Religion beliefs
– Politic views
– Something too personal to talk about…

It could be very helpful, I think.

Saturday, May 4th 2013

very interesting lesson. thanks. i think you are right. i knew the age and weight but not the others.

Friday, May 10th 2013

thanks a lot dear Emma, i love you and your and your excellent teaching, and i have speaking and vocabulary problem, so what is your guides about?

Monday, May 13th 2013


Saturday, June 8th 2013

i answerd before watching the vedeo,so my score wasn’t that bad loll

Monday, June 10th 2013

But some men when they try to tell their girls/wives that they are “Unique” they would say something like “you’re really a good cook”… which is like you’re the best cook, or others just can’t cook as you do.

What I’m trying to say is that it’s a kind of “compliment” just to make them special.

like “you’re the most beautiful girl on earth” which implies that, you’re pretty AS IF others are ugly next to you.

Finally, men are dumb sometimes Haha

I am a man lol

Monday, June 10th 2013

Thank you Emma. I will keep in mind XD

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Saturday, June 15th 2013

Sunday, August 25th 2013

that was fantastic thanks Emma

Tuesday, August 27th 2013

Hi emma , the lesson‏ ‏was very handy, but we need another one to knw what we hv 2 say 2 them, thanks.

Friday, August 30th 2013

In Japan, it might be hard, mightn’t it… But I hope so.
Thank you for your interesting lesson, Emma :)

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

I wonder what kind of American accent Emma has. Her especially seems to have a slight hard c (k) which sounds like “ekspecially”.

Wednesday, September 25th 2013

thanks a lot

Friday, October 4th 2013

I have heard women using terms of endearment with men that are not their husband or boyfriend or brother. Isn’t that double standard?

Saturday, October 12th 2013

Agree with you bigmak, something similar happened to me, so certain points in here apply for both sexes, good one Emma, i wonder if dear or dearie too is something similar, coz i use either of these words a lot.. and yeah this video should go public. :)

Friday, October 25th 2013


Thanks a lot!!!!

Saturday, November 9th 2013

Thank you Emma!

Friday, November 29th 2013

I have benefited a lot from you Teacher Emma thanks indeed :)

Wednesday, December 4th 2013

Thanks Emma, You’re so Wright about some of those facts that appeared in the list, I’m spanish and where I live women (I’m included) we find very insulting the fact number six (Yoy do …. well for a girl)And people have to be carefull with that expression, some of them might think that women are less important to the society and that’s not true so for all of you be carefull with that.
Anyway thanks for the lesson :)

Tuesday, December 10th 2013

Thanks for the great lesson!!!
The only missing part was the meaning of PMS, which means “premenstrual syndrome”.

Saturday, June 28th 2014

Thanks for the video, you’re a great teacher !

Monday, July 28th 2014

Thanks for the video, it is really good… (for a woman – no, sorry, just kidding).

I like watching videos on this site. You have nice accent and clearly voice, it is easy to understand everything and it helps me a lot.

Thanks for the video. I agree with everything. But what do you think about gender equity? On the one hand, questions about weight and age are proper to ask men but on the other hand I known that it is not so good to ask women about it, they can feel uncomfortable. (and of course, I not ask these questions)

Wednesday, August 20th 2014

Thanks Emma

Saturday, August 23rd 2014

thanks Emma.those are good advices.

Friday, August 29th 2014

Tuesday, November 18th 2014

I always get a full mark in this level (Intermediate).
Do I have to move onto the (Advanced) level??
Or it depends on the type of quizzes!!

    Sounds like you should start trying Advanced lessons to me!

    Friday, November 28th 2014

really great

Friday, December 19th 2014

good and useful

Thursday, December 25th 2014

It´s very good and important to know these word otherwise we can be caught on embarrassing situation. So let avoid to use these word for women as they deserve all our best.
Thanks Emma for the very useful teaching.

Friday, December 26th 2014

women are so strange ;)

Friday, January 9th 2015

Thank you very much Emma

Saturday, January 10th 2015

Hi Emma,Its very nice explanation….i liked it..

Saturday, March 28th 2015

I guess these topics are same for all over the world. Thank you Emma.

Saturday, May 23rd 2015

0 of 8! C’mon, perfect!

Monday, June 15th 2015

in my opinion we have to respect the womens around the world always time all the days

Friday, July 24th 2015

Great thanks. It’s good to know what words to use, or what not to in different countries.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Thank you Emma

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

The only real lesson here is item 8, and it’s so obvious no one should be taught that. As for the rest, it’s just a bunch of stuff only nagging women would whine about. I mean, come on, if you get offended when someone asks your age, you are not fit for society.

Monday, September 7th 2015

Thanks Emma :)

Tuesday, September 8th 2015

i don’t agree with test.there are mistakes in here

Wednesday, September 30th 2015

Thank YOU.

Tuesday, November 10th 2015

Really it is international lesson


Sunday, December 27th 2015

Thanks Emma. It was an amazing and very useful lesson.

Friday, March 4th 2016

thxxxxxx very good

Sunday, March 6th 2016

very good!

Sunday, March 6th 2016

Ok, I will have care don’t tell her these 8 things, thanks.

Thursday, March 24th 2016

Emma , hi

where can I take the quiz ?

Thursday, April 28th 2016

Emma,Thanks for your lesson.For weight i think that might not to say with everyone even men or women because i’ve gained weight 15 kg(33 lbs) in last two years. Anyway i try to diet now right now

Wednesday, May 11th 2016

Thanks Emma¡¡ this is a very helpful lesson….I like to respect the women because I have a mother and sisters and workmates…in my opinion, a gentleman never must to say this phrases to women.

Friday, June 3rd 2016

Great video, I would like to add a question about a marital status, it’s not really offensive, but I don’t like when strangers ask me if I’m married, especially if it’s one of the first questions to ask you.
And I think many women who are not married and in their forties or older might find this offensive.

Monday, July 18th 2016

Great approach motivational video. Dear Emma Can you tell me PMS Stand For?

Thursday, July 28th 2016

Some people added me on facebook. They sent me messages and called me honey or darling etc. It made me uncomfortable because I never met them in real life.

Thursday, September 8th 2016

If you want to live in Northern America or in another civilized state, you have to watch this lesson. Good job Emma.

Tuesday, September 27th 2016

    Thank you very much

Sunday, January 1st 2017

Thanks, Emma.Useful lesson. I got 100

Saturday, March 4th 2017

Some Amerian women called me honey or sweety before; I think she doesn’t any better.I knew it was wrong to say woman to woman. :) Thank you Emma.

Friday, March 24th 2017

Fascinating, Emma!
I think some abrupt address from that you mentioned in your lesson would ordinarily provoke an equally sharp retort even among men. For instance, when my mom tells me I gained my belly I hate this stuff.

Friday, May 5th 2017

thank you Emma for you class

Tuesday, July 4th 2017

Thank you very much

Thursday, July 6th 2017

Thanks, Emma! The test was really usefull for me!
