Friday, January 4th 2019

Could you, please, make a video about similarities and differences between words: carry on, keep on, hold on and go on etc?

Friday, January 4th 2019

    Other teachers have different videos such as carry, keep, hold, go and another verb or phrasal verb with different preposition in the beginner stage. So, Find out and watch it …

Great, but we more lessons about technique to be fluent in American accents

For a native especially for a non-native speaker,fluency matters a lot.As a non-native speaker we have to work more than the natives and hoping that this video will help non-natives more :)

Panama Republic, May 12th year 2019.

Good Morning Teacher Emma ( Observation : in the culture in U.S.A and Canada is not correct use title, profession with First Name.) Following your instructions in the lessons name : How the Human voice works.

Section :Types of Body Parts that we do have inside of ours Mouth:
Your example : Bump called Adam’s apple and Voice Box and is Pointing in the body part call by you Neck.

Then : Part of your question is :

Where is your voice box ?
The answer should be: My voice box is in the mouth.
Why? because voice box is part of the body inside of the mouth.

If you are asking: Where is the point of the Voice box ?
Taking in consideration your explanation will be in the neck.

In my opinion is you ask for the point of the body part called voice box should be the point the part called THROAT.

Today International Nurses Day, All you, are welcome to watch in youtube the History of Florence Nightingale or read her book, if you can of course.
You can share this information with someone that have someone ill.
In my opinion this is the reason many country do not have good health because Nurses ( men and women ) do not know the english language for learn the basic of the pioneer ( initiator) of modern nursing by Florence Nightingale.

Best Regards
Yazb.
Tech, Nurse.
