your all videos are awesome.. but i want to understand all of expression. so , if you add (english) subtitle i’d be grateful.. thank you all for great videos


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.

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?


    You might have to learn that the hard way :P

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

    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.

    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!

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.


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?

Many Thanks Emma


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

Beau Keil

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.

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)?


    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

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.

kamakshya sharma

    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. :)

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


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


    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.

Profile photo of ikiller ikiller

    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

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

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

Profile photo of morfik morfik

100% correct thanks teacher


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

Bao Long (Viet Nam)

what an useful video! Thanks my teacher


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

    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.

    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

Profile photo of wandersson22 wandersson22

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 :)


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

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.

Profile photo of volker volker

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.


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

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

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

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:)


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


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.


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

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!!

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.


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.:)

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?


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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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 :)

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)

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.

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.

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.

I disagree – If you can not tell a friend that she is being a bitch when she is being a bitch, That does not make you a real friend.

Especially when you have shared the same trauma experience when you were children in the same care home! “Toxic masculinity”
