Hello Rebecca! Thanks a lot for so useful expressions and idioms lesson!

Thursday, August 10th 2017

    My pleasure, Rodion Zavialov. Thanks for your warm feedback. I wish you all the best, my friend.

    Oh My Gosh! What an interesting class dear Rebeca!

    It never ceased to amaze me how you explain your lesson contents with great ease.

    Excellent review using a story. Context usually helps to understand meaning a bit faster than using a dictionary.

    Just one question Rebeca, is the following phrase an idiom or an expression? :

    “I got 44 points out of 100 on this quiz”

    Many thanks for this superb Video-lessib Rebecca.

    Friday, August 11th 2017

      Oh Gosh! Please do not get me wrong Rebecca.
      This was a typing error what I meant was:

      “Many thanks for this superb video-lesson”

      Regards

      Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

Tuesday, October 10th 2017

Hi Rebecca
It very natural that somebody experiences a difficult situations in his life, but that should not stop him-her being optimistic and positive because it is just a part of life. As for me, I have been out of work and out of money for a long time since I graduated from my university. I was in a pickle and out of character and that kept me out of touch with my closed friends for a while. Eventually, I realized that nothing will lasts forever neither happiness nor sadness so we should be more patient and thankful for whatever.

plz my great teacher correct my mistakes

Thanks in advance :)

Thursday, October 12th 2017

Thanks teacher it is very easy to learn with you

Friday, October 13th 2017

Rebecca, pleasured to hear all your lessons! Really clear!

Monday, October 16th 2017
