      What does your top comment mean, Zahra?

      Friday, March 10th 2017

        Most of the first and second comments are not about the lessons, it seems they leave notes then they watch the videos :D

        Saturday, March 11th 2017

          Yes, sometimes we comment first, especially if we want to be the first to comment. It’s a competition. But we watch videos afterwards of course.
          We greatful to EngVid for the opportunity to chat, not on the topic.
          This time I personally have nothing to say about the lesson. It’s useful, no doubt.
          Thanks, Emma, very much.

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          Competition for what?????

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          For the first comment to the lesson. You can join us as well. It’s entertaining and encouraging. You can look through comments on the previous lessons and find out a score. Good luck

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          I’ll never do such a thing :)
          Thank you

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          Of course, it’s up to you. As you are a teacher, you might not be interested in such a dial. But I think it’s interesting for those who’s shy and needs to improve his writing skills. I’ll tell about my experience: I had been whatching EngVid lessons for a year( from time to time). After starting this “competition”, I really wait for every single lesson, never miss them. It encourages me a lot.
          We try to comment on the topic, but fail sometimes.
          Nice to meet you.

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          As u like
          We don’t force anyone

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          “We” I think all of you are one person
          look at your dictions all of them are the same

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          Good morning Mrs Zahra! I don’t understand your last comment at all, sorry.
          Don’t take offense at us for writing out of the topic. I apologize to EngVid for that as well.
          Have a nice day.

          Sunday, March 12th 2017

          We would prefer everyone’s comments be on topic, yes!

          Monday, March 13th 2017

I think I am the second on board, very grateful of this…

Thursday, March 9th 2017

    I have to practice more time to understand this lesson because I have many doubts.

    Thursday, March 9th 2017

      Time must take its course!

      Thursday, March 9th 2017

        The early bird does not always catch the worm! Everything at its appointed time! Everything happens in its own time! A watched pot never boils! To everything, there is a season! Don’t push the river; it flows by itself! Never try to teach a pig to sing because you waste your time and it annoys the pig! There are different sentences with the same meaning…

        Thursday, March 9th 2017

          On EngVid, they do catch!
          But what one should do with an annoyed pig?

          Thursday, March 9th 2017

          Yes, they do catch so many concepts, not only proverbs but also the time position of these posts or comments, because when I began to write my first words I thought I was the second on writing them at this morning. And furthermore, with an annoyed pig, you have to be warned because it bites if you are distracted or without attention.
          I have realised that there is a resource with some proverbs like ones of my comment:
          https://www.engvid.com/english-resource/50-common-proverbs-sayings/

          Thursday, March 9th 2017

          Hi, angardiobel! Thank you for the resource.
          You are the second indeed. But when one replies to the comment it is placed next to it (comment). That’s why your second comment to the lesson moves downward. How is the weather in Spain right now? I were in Barselona twice, and I liked it very much (except Sagrada Familia – it looks like the Koschei the Deathless’ castle. He is the Russian evil folk character. Does anybody know this character?)

          Saturday, March 11th 2017

          Yes, of course, I haven’t realised or noted it, you’re right, I ought to review my vision of all these comments or posts; and with regard to the weather in Spain right now, it’s cloudy and rainy but with warm temperatures, we’re near the spring and when it’s sunny we can arrive at 22 degrees, it will be warm and hot nearly. I didn’t know the Marya Morevna’s tale but I have searched it and I have found that interesting page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Koschei_the_Deathless, although I think The Temple of the Sacred Family is a great building similar to a castle but without pits and walls with battlements, it’s a reference monument in Barcelona where is buried Antonio Gaudí i Hornet, the famous architect who began his construction. Anyway, the art is always very criticised, there are opinions of all classes.

          Monday, March 13th 2017

          Yes! There are some English-language retellings of/references to Koshchei stories.

          Monday, March 13th 2017

It’s funny a O U.
With face expressions if you talk slowly.

Amma! Your Lipsing with this sounds awesome

Thursday, March 9th 2017

Thanks Emma, this lesson was great…

Thursday, March 9th 2017

Thanks Emma,you realy great teacher.

Thursday, March 9th 2017

Hello Emma: I dont understand the reason of difernt pronunciation between Boot and Book. Why ? How can I know ?

Thursday, March 9th 2017

    Hello sdwender! You can find out the pronunciation in IPA. It contains symbols to make reading easier. There are so many reading rules in English, so follow IPA.
    It’s great you are here on EngVid. You are so curious, I suppose!
    There are a lot of things absent on the site: you year of birth and Russia as country when one wants to donate, for example. It’s a pity…

    Saturday, March 11th 2017
