excellent lesson but can we use atlast instead of finally or lastly and can we say that firstly you have to read the reciepe followed by purchase of ingredients.

Saturday, February 13th 2010

    hiii you better english techer

    Thursday, September 2nd 2010

    in my view we can’t use atlast instead of finally or lastly and same thing about firstly.( I am keen interest to learn english, I want to develop my english language soon before i search any job, so i request your goodself to help me a lot, to improve my language of all category like speaking, listening,writing and reading too. thanks your good help. congratulation.

    Monday, January 24th 2011

      same also here, i am also keen to learn english, then i will search for any job

      Friday, February 13th 2015

      firstly is acceptable. but Today it is kind of outdated. my suggestion is first, secondly and thirdly…

      Saturday, April 18th 2015

    very good

    Saturday, July 23rd 2011

    I finally understand this! Valen you are my hero I”m a college girl. Love SRI!

    Wednesday, February 20th 2013

    Finally and at last are not used in the same way.Only use at last when you have been waiting for a long time for something to happen e.g. At last i’ve passed the IELTS exam!

awesome video………………..*_^

Saturday, February 13th 2010

thanks alot now i can undurstand how i can put them order

Saturday, February 13th 2010

    thanks a lot *

    Sunday, May 7th 2017

thanks, great video. but i don’t understand why do you say while like( well) I’m ESL student At New York but we pronounce while like ( wail). maybe it’s canadian accent. thank you

Saturday, February 13th 2010

    I agree whit you!

    Thursday, February 18th 2010

      yeah, I have the same question. Could you tell us what is the right pronunciation? thanks.

      Thursday, August 25th 2011

        While is pronounce like “why” + “el” not like “well” which Valen keeps saying.

        Wednesday, February 22nd 2012

      I agree which you all so!

      Thursday, October 30th 2014

thx~ your lesson. but i have a Q.
why did you use ‘the’ in front of oven? and ‘a’ in front of pan?
i don’t know what is difference..

Saturday, February 13th 2010

    I guess the difference whould be that you use “the” when you’re talking about an specific thing. She said “the oven” becouse we use to have justo ONE oven in home. On the other side, you use “a” for meaning “one”. She said “a pan”, because we can imaginate you have several pans in your home, but we need just one of them.

    Sunday, April 4th 2010

      yes, I agree with u!

      Saturday, January 15th 2011

      We only need one of them, but maybe she have several pans with the same shape, same mark, same price,… So i think “a” is correct choice.

      Thursday, June 23rd 2011

      in my opinion ,when you r listning to these lectures you must also consider a little bit of grammar too ,if you had read ARTICALS then you feel ease to understand it.XD :)

      Tuesday, August 9th 2011

Good lesson thanks

Monday, February 15th 2010

I am confused when to use had, has & have. Even more confused why there is have had, had had…Any practical ways/rules to identify when to use it? To play safe I would normally use straight past tenses but there was a feedback from my American bosses that they cannot get my explanations clearly. Please help!

Tuesday, April 13th 2010


Amazing lessons! I was trying to find a site where I can learn ways to improve politeness in my spoken and written english. I realized I need to work on my grammar as well! I would appreciate if you can let me know if there are specific lessons on politeness as that is the current need of the hour for me. Also if there are similar lessons to learn German and Italian.
Thank you and please keep up the great work.

I look forward to receiving your reply. Thank you in advance for your help.

I’m really grateful to your team for these interesting lessons, and this, I think, is for two reasons – firstly, you have got the natives to teach and secondly, all of your work is absolutely free, which is immensely helpful to many learners who cannot afford.

Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

I have a question about the use of ‘preheating’.
In the video you writed ‘while the oven is preheating,~~’.
I think this sentence is a passive sentence.
If this sentence is a passive thing, ‘preheating’ is need to be changed to ‘preheated’. Am I right???
I think my question is a rambling letter, but please answer my question. I’ll wait.^^

Wednesday, November 24th 2010

    hi.try it on YouTube

    Saturday, February 2nd 2013

Thank you VALEN, your teaching method is very interesting.

Thursday, December 2nd 2010

Whenever I finish writing my Uni assignments, thesis, essays.,etc, I always go to student assistant center to get my essay proofread before submitting. However, sometimes I can’t book for same tutor coz of the schedule. In that case I have to go to alternative tutor. When I get my essay proofread and get that fixed and cruise back for reproofread. Alternative tutor corrects where my prima tutor told me to correct. I was in a ping-pong situation, although, I didn’t tell them about this. All those tutors are either PhD or master’s degree students. I begin to hold question, what is the right grammars? Why essays have to be simple while there’re many books contain so complicated terms or jargons can’t even decipher the context. I think there’re certain degrees of English that people use which consisting from their perspective. Articles, plural forms, and past tense are obvious mistakes you can find, but when people write from their belief like how they select a word from synonyms or their semantics, and pragmatics then maybe difficult to point out the mistakes. What do you think?

plz give a session on “Gotta”
i really need to understand it

Monday, February 4th 2013

    It’s just short for “got to”, or “have got to”. So you could say

    “sorry, I have got to go” or
    “sorry, I gotta go” or
    “gotta go!”

    and they all mean the same thing. It just depends how much of a hurry you’re in :)

Saturday, February 23rd 2013

that was really helpful
tnx for facilitating such opportunities

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

Hi Valen,
Your teaching style is great but you can make it even better by considering these comments.
First, try not to put your hand on the whiteboard as you write. The only thing that should touch the board is the marker. Secondly, there is no need for you to keep erasing the board all the time. It would be better to keep a written record of the things you are presenting. Finally, I hope you will not be offended by my “critical” comment

Tuesday, February 26th 2013

thank you so much

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Dear Valen,
Please could you help me in some important expressions which are usually used in IELTS task1?
These expressions are such as proportion, percentage, relatively percentage…etc
I need you to explain them with more different expressions related to them to use a wide range of vocabulary in the exam.
I have exam after two weeks and I still confuse about their meaning.
Thank you so much

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

Dear Valen,


I wonder why did not you use commas after first of all,to begin with,firstly, secondly…etc.

Thank you.
