you are an awesome teacher ronnie. we all like your lessons ….

Monday, October 5th 2009

Thank a lot

Saturday, October 31st 2009

Though this instructor seems to be a good teacher, she is actually making some serious errors here. When you say the names of the letters, that’s totally different than saying the sounds that the letters make.

If you say P, it is voiced. Why? Because it sounds like “pee” and all vowel sounds are voiced. It is the sound /p/, not the letter name that is unvoiced.

Wednesday, November 4th 2009

Very good lesson Ronnie just one little remark… when you say “P” or “B” they are the letters of the alphabet. It´s different from saying /p/ or /b/ which are phonemes ( sounds), and you can´t hear the vocal cords vibrate, you feel them. Regards

Thursday, November 5th 2009

very useful lesson

Mam my English is too weak, please help me in this case because our language is Urdu. English is an international language thats why i want to learn English. Its my aim and desire that i speak English like British natives.Mam can you provide more videos for speaking English fluently and vocabulary.

Saturday, July 31st 2010

Nice dimples, Ronnie. Thank you for all the lessons. You are awesome.

Sunday, August 1st 2010

u r really a good teacher

Thursday, August 19th 2010

there is a role but i do not know the meaning and when can i use it
s+get+somebody+infintive with to +something
i am waiting for your reply..teacher

Thursday, August 19th 2010

Roni: When teaching the sounds of “p” and “b”, it is best not to use the name of the letters. To express the unvoiced “p”, an explosion of air should be forced outward from the mouth through the pursed lips. To express the voiced “b”, voice is combined with the lips closed and then opened. In the video, you actually said the names of the letters rather than the sound those letters make. If students use the letter name when pronouncing a word, the word will be mispronounced. “Pop”
will become “pee-op”. “Baby” will become “bee-a-bee”. Perhaps you can re-record this lesson again.
Perhaps you can

Monday, December 13th 2010

thank you so much.
pleas, add v pronunciation.
I’m so difficult between b & v pronunciation.
For example, berry & very . :)

Wednesday, December 15th 2010

    English is my second language as well. I have learnt it through an English grammar book the pronunciation of /V/ : if you put your lower lip behind your upper teeth and then let the air flow flow out softly pushing the lower lip back to its normal state, then the sound produced is very close to the native… try very, vivid, violet, vivian, valley, village, vow and wow
    Thank you Ronnie and all wonderful participants.

I also get dimples wehn i laugh!hey dear i wanna ask something about difference between adjective and adverb,If i say She runs Fsst,so here fast is consider as adjective Or adverb!plzz help me dear

Thursday, September 1st 2011

    It’s very simple, she runs fast. is (adverb) …if you say, “she fast” then it`s (adjective). the thing is that if you use with verb then its adverb because it`s adding in verb other way it`s only adjective. So, am I Right Ronnie?

    Wednesday, May 10th 2017

thanks.I wanna learn how to be a real English teacher by speaking English as a native. How? I’m teaching English and I think I’m good but need to speak English all the time with my students.I use my main language,Arabic, to explain . Please help.

Tuesday, September 6th 2011

Hey Ronnie,your videos are awesome,I really love them and I have downloaded almost all of them, I have been living In New Zealand since May 2011 and I have problems understanding people with British/Scottish accent,do you have any suggestion? and one more question, what to do to improve my accent?

Thursday, September 8th 2011

By the way,I have one suggestion for you to make a video about, I was wondering if you could make a video in your house ( kitchen,bathroom,…) and teach student some common and frequently used vocabulary in daily life, vocabulary about cooking, fruits, vegetables and etc, because I have had that problem first month of my arrival in New Zealand,It is just a suggestion, would be glad to see more videos with your lovely method of teaching

Thursday, September 8th 2011

Hi Ronnie,
First of all, I enjoy watching your lesson. I try to speak Eng but always come up with frustration because of my poor pronunciation. I cant pronounce correctly or cant differentiate some similar sounds such as Bet, But, Bud, Bad, Bed and Bat etc. When I say “eggs”, people understand axes. So may I request a lesson? Thanks, Ronnie.
