As usual, your classes and Engvid classes have contributed for my English language development.

That’s what I call explaining something bad, making it interesting and useful.

Very useful and amazing lesson. Thank you Gill. My favorite sonnet is number 130.

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

I will be very appreciated if you will do a lesson on 130 sonnet.

Thanks dear teacher, the lesson was very clear, and It was very easy to pick the main purpose from the lesson, after watching this video I will not have problems with sonnets!!! I would like to request you very kindly, if you could make a video on the literary devices that are mainly used for poetry analyses, than you.
