Thank you a lot, Alex.
It was clear as a bell)

I think knowing idioms is one of the most important thinks for speaking part on exams.

Alexandra

    Idioms always make our talking more colorful, natural, and interesting; no doubt about it.

    They are useful learning tools that help us see to some good extent how the English language is used in informal contexts.

    As usual Alex, it was a concise and interesting video-lesson.

    Have a great week !!!

    P.S. I didn’t quite get your last name Alex, is it Mackarthur? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Thank you for commenting.

    Alex

      Eeng

        Hi, Eeng,

        I think you must correct something in your sentence…. It is tUne and not tOne..

        and you must change your icon for other nicer..

        Bye

Hey teacher….

First of all, thank’s for this awesome class…..It’s really clear as a bell.

I’d like to say that you should go to the gym for one week more or less to be fit as a fiddle….I’m just kidding….anyway !
I actually have to tell you this class and all the others has been music to our ears, you’re very good teaching and I think all that jazz as well.
Make sure you’ll never change your tune and if one day you changed and had some problem I’m sure that you’d face the music….

Excellent expression. It really easy to understand. Good work. It is to be clear as bell.

vasanthbabu

Let see If I understood the lesson.

Can I say:

If you don´t change your tune, you´ll face the music.

Was it clear as a bell?

Is it correct Alex?

Thank

Alejandro

Excellent lesson, Alex!
But… “You received my letter?” is a tad informal.
How about adding “Ring a bell” as in “Does this ring a bell to you?”?
I hope not to “play hell” here! ;-)

I just want to know that can I use most of the words in english as verbs?because some times back,I knew that some words like “silence”,”fear” can’t be used as verbs but I was watching an English movie last week when I heard the actor saying “I have silenced her” and also sentence like “I feared” and I got shocked as I had never heard these type of sentences..I want you to clarify these doubts of mine plzzz..
