ya ,lesson was funny:)

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

I loved! I’m going to try it with my class. It’s a good way to improve vocabulary as you said.

Some people in Brazil likes to eat ‘hearts of chicken’ in barbecue :)

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

    Hmmmm….. delicious.

    Monday, September 24th 2012

I like your lesson, Jon

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

excellent job Jon. looking for more lessons

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

Mind the “letter” how it’s written, don’t make mistake Jon!

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

    i don’t know if I’m right also but what i understand is that the word “latter” refers to the line (sword and sward, retain and Britain). Oh sir Jon help us,,, we understand it differently.

    Thursday, March 8th 2012

      Well Totong, I still think that I’m right. We’ll wait for Jon to reply if he wants, but I don’t see logic if the word “latter” is right. It’s about pronunciation, but also about spelling. . .

      Thursday, March 8th 2012

        Its only what i understood his lesson,,,, but it seem that sir Jon didn’t answer us…. sir Jon,,, Hello are you there?

        Sunday, March 25th 2012

    Why do you think that “latter” is a mistake? Search for “The Chaos” by G. Nolst Trenité ;)

Could you like teacher a lesson on HANG expressions? e.g HANG ON, HANG UP, HANG OUT, HANG AROUND e.t.c

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

    I’ll tell you here immediately. HANG ON means to wait and to listen carefully. HANG UP has more than one meaning, but one of them is to interrupt line on the phone or to end up the phone call. HANG OUT means to go out with smb. HANG AROUND means to walk around. . .

Great lesson, I can improve my pronunciation.

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

Hi Jon
Thanks for this video class, it´s very interesting to listen to this kind of advanced vocabulary. I´d like to have an explination of the words in a next video like this, as you know if we don´t understand we don´t learn.

Best regards

Thursday, March 8th 2012

    Oh yeah – great idea. My suggestion is the next part of this poem :)

    Thursday, March 8th 2012

Hi, Jon! Your lesson was fantastic, but I didn’t quite catch the pronunciation of the word poem, coz in our dictionaries it sounds like ‘pouim. and you pronounce it like pom, long sound o. which is correct? thanks in advance

Thursday, March 8th 2012

    Hi Lesya!!! your dictionary uses British pronunciation but sir Jon used american English accent but either of the two is correct.

Jon…I enjoy ur lesson. I said in the first block of the poem to pronounce further bolcks of this very long poem with very difficult words. There are more blocks. Can u read all of them? Thanks a lot for ur great lesson. Sometimes I really don’t know how to pronounce some words, as you said before, there are no consistance im vowels and consonants as there are in spanish or portuguese. For instances: tear and tear. I’m sorry to other you. Bye
