I have one question ..

When you mentioned in your example “Nelly told me she was going to have triplets, I was so stunned and shocked that you could have _______.
The answer here is (to hear a pin drop)
But I think It doesn’t make any sense here, does it?????

Sunday, May 15th 2016

    Why not? Shock and awe can look exactly so))

Sunday, May 15th 2016

Good Afternoon Jade.Congratulation on your vídeos.They are really helpful.

I am teaching advanced students in Brazil and I have been trough a big issue recently.Find bellow some sentences that I want to explain them using grammar point.Students must rewrite these sentence as follow:

We received the News that we had awaited for so long.
We received the long-awaited News.

Se the example.Which grammar topic shoud I explain about?

See another example:

That landscape took my breath away.
A spider is na insect that has eight legs.
He is dating girl that has blue eyes.
The teacher’s mind open to learning new things.

How should I rewrite these sentences properly using the pattern above?

I really appreciate if you help me out.

Thank you so much in advance.

    Hi Marcos
    i hope she will respond on your questions To be honest sometimes i get confused of these kind of rules . We wait to see her answer as soon as possible . good lock in ur job .

    Monday, June 13th 2016

    Hey bro, nice to meet you. As a fanatic of English language, it sounds like this wolud be passive voice. For instance, in the sentence of the landscape, I would answer: ‘ My breath was taken away by that landscape’ I hope you get the point, cuz I didn’t see Jane’s aswer.
    Cheers from Argentina.

    Thursday, July 28th 2016

Thank you so much. I did a test and I took note 7

Thanks Jade for this very good video. It is worth it to watch it twice, it contains info that is very usefull.

Monday, May 16th 2016

I sense that you, Jade, develop your knowledge in NLP – auditry digit type of people was absent in your previous lesson about “how to learn english depending on your preferentional type of consuming information”)) Admittedly NLP seems to me like cheating my friends and kin. I mean, if you study it thoroughly. On the other hand it was awesome class – idioms, introductory phrases and very funny pronounciation made my day.. or night))

Monday, May 16th 2016

Hi Jade! Thanks for the great lesson! As always, you finish the lesson in a cute way!

Thank u Jade. But I have a question, I’m a little bit bad at English for this time, and i don’t know what to do..HELP ME PLEASE …

Wednesday, May 18th 2016

    of course, I can help you.

    Monday, June 13th 2016

    If you want to learn the English language easily, do these steps gradually:
    1- Listen
    2- Speak
    3- Read
    4- Write
    These four steps are logical to learn any language; we all learn the mother (first) language by these steps. Have a good day..

    Thursday, July 14th 2016

Hi Mrs Jade,
I am glad to see you again. However, recently I have seen your new video which is about Language and The Senses basically on that something grabbed my attention . I would like to mention that on that you say we use past tenses like “taught” and future clause in First conditional but I learned that for First Conditions we should use: If+ any presents + Future clause .
I would be pleased if I hearing from you as soon as you received this message.

Monday, May 23rd 2016

I apologize for the writing incorrect subject on the page above. The title of the video was; How To Write a Perfect IELTS Essay Conclusion.

I do not understand why you tell us about NLP, and how it can help me in my study english language, but
anyway thank you very much.

Friday, May 27th 2016

Thanks so much for a useful lesson. To tell you the truth, I had some difficulty hearing you when you speak becuase of your british accent. But I’m getting used to it.

Friday, May 27th 2016

    The British accent is the best. You do not understand her because she speaks with a fast way, so she must speak slowly, because we are learner.

    Thursday, July 14th 2016

      Hey mate. I dont agree with you. This is a lesson for advanced students. I understood every word she said.

Thanks Jade, I just love the way you teach and your accent, which is as cute as you are. It reminds me the time I spent in London.

I found the quiz pretty easy, though. You could’ve made it a little bit harder. See you (:

Sunday, June 5th 2016

Thursday, June 30th 2016

and what about “it looks like it’s going to rain” is it the same thing as “it looks as if it’s going to rain” ? kind of tricky…

Wednesday, July 6th 2016

    “It looks like” same as “It sounds like”. However, the first one is “Visual” and the second one is “Auditory”.

    Thursday, July 14th 2016

Jade is the one ! How I love that accent!
Excellent lesson.

Very useful.🎉

Tuesday, January 3rd 2017

Got 100%. thanks JAde

Saturday, January 21st 2017

thanks a lot Jade.
I wonder, if you(engvid) are going to make audio recources. (engauid);)
i have to drive one and a half hour a day at least, and i am listening eng. while driving. At the result got the highest score from listening exam among 100 people.
and I am looking for eng audio with high quality, for advanced learners, which may help me to learn idioms, phrasal versb, build vocabulary, listen to diferent appropriate topics, even grammar by listening.(appropriate = topics that can be asked during ielts exams)
6 min eng is my favorite one, but it is not difficult for me anymore.
By the way your speech is the hardest one, among your counterparts, that is why i am listening to you more time by time, for geting better listening skill ;)

Friday, February 17th 2017

Thanks, Jade. I got 100
