    Sorry Emma i did not quite understand the last example very well. As far as I understand ( Nurses) can be use for both genders right?

    Friday, August 17th 2012

      Emma I undestand you much well. I have studied on my free-time because i need to speak English. I’d already seen some videos on web-site Youtube of the teachers from here.

Emma,you taught me some useful things that I can use it on my daily life.I can’t not thank you for that.I have a doubt.Is there a word like “MANAGERESS”, if we are talking about a lady manager.

Friday, August 3rd 2012

    Hi Deepu,

    Thank you for your question. The word manageress exists in English, but it is rarely used. Manager is the preferred term for both men and women.

    Monday, September 29th 2014

      Can we practice English?

      Sunday, June 28th 2020

Very important topic. Nowadays, it’s very important to watch out for the language that we use, especially this gender issue. With time, people are getting more polite & more sensible, so the language that we use must take that into account.

Friday, August 3rd 2012

cleaning lady – office cleaner
headmaster – director
foreman – supervisor

Friday, August 3rd 2012

    cleaning lady is a general term

    headmaster is no director, Direcor’s defenition can be seen in Law Books.

    Foreman and Supervisor is different, Supervisor is the designation just above foreman and supervisor is responsible for all works, but foreman is responsible for a small part of work only.

    Saturday, August 4th 2012

      sorry, director’s

      Saturday, August 4th 2012

    foreman is not the same that supervisor, is not it?

    Saturday, July 19th 2014

      Let’s go practice English together 😉?

Thanks everyone who is working here and what you are doing here is very helpful for us .

A good manager knows its staff.
This should be alright, we all are nothing but things… “Man/Women/Person/Human” kind are so arrogant…

Saturday, August 4th 2012

    Hahaha….I must say a witty remark :) Excellent!

    I don’t like arrogant people-things too.

    But don’t despise humanity as a whole. There are many good people among us.

    Saturday, August 4th 2012

i don´t know how to say this…

“Someone(he or she) needs help. They(he or she) are crying inside the cave.”
but i know that there is only 1 person there. What will be the correct form?
sorry my english, i´m not advanced in english. Thanks.

Saturday, August 4th 2012

    Hi hkh,

    Thank you for your question. For your example sentence, you have a choice between “he or she” and “they”. In more formal writing, you should use ‘he or she’ even though this is a little long and awkward. In less formal writing or conversation, you can use ‘they’. The majority of English speakers use ‘they’ although it technically isn’t grammatically correct.

    Here is how I would write your example: Someone needs help. They are crying inside the cave.

    Tuesday, August 14th 2012

There is no enough words to express my gratefull feelings to you for this service and asked God to bless you.
Is there are such way to have alive chat with your staff to practice English lively please?

Saturday, August 4th 2012

Saturday, August 4th 2012

Thursday, August 16th 2012

was a nice topic, I would like to learn more with you!!tnks

Friday, August 17th 2012

I like this lesson because i could learn some good way to not refer always to a man when we really mean man and woman. so, that was interesting , and thanks a lot

Friday, August 17th 2012

Thank you for this lesson.I’ve question.
In this topic you said “Man has always been driven by his desire for happiness” and than you changed the sentences “People have always been driven by their desire for happines”.So, I want to know why the first sentences you used “Has”? Isn’t “man” plural? And why you used “his” in first sentences? The word “man” is general,like people”.
I’m sorry for my long questions :)

Saturday, August 18th 2012

Yayyyy perfect score!!! Thank you for the lesson I always said fireman or policeman…to be honest I never thought about the gender issue…love this website!!! God bless you all

Sunday, August 19th 2012

Hi Emma,

Emma, I really thank you for this lesson. we have lots of language discrimination in Turkey. After watching this lesson, I have an idea preparing a gender-inclusive language lesson in Turkish.

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

Hello Teacher Emma, thank you for this video. I liked it a lot.

Friday, August 24th 2012

Thanks Teacher,
lesson is very helpful. Hope I am going to watch more videos about the grammar.

Friday, August 24th 2012

Great! :)

Saturday, August 25th 2012

yipee! got all correct…

Sunday, August 26th 2012

Hi Emma, thank you for your lesson. Maybe we could find a way to do the same lesson in others languages… When I speak French or Italian I often feel to be, as you said, in the 1950’s!!! There are some jobs that I even don’t know how to say when they are done by women!!! There is still a long way to go…

Monday, August 27th 2012

    Hi Milly, yeah, what you say is so true . Here in Italy you can still hear people (both males and females) talking about their female boss using gender excluding terms as “il mio capo si chiama LAura”, o il mio dottore si chiama Chiara”. I think that’s unacceptable.
    Thanks Emma for this lesson. It’s a great lesson about avoiding sexism….

    Saturday, December 27th 2014

nice and useful

Tuesday, August 28th 2012

Hi emma

It’s Amazing. In our difficult life – it’s very important doing so

Wednesday, November 7th 2012

Hi, Emma. Thanks for the wonderful lesson. I wanna ask you about one interesting word – history – is it related with the phrase “his story”, can we regard it as a sexism? if yes, so how to avoid it?

Thursday, November 8th 2012

    “History” comes from the ancient Greek word istoria, which means “inquiry”. So, no, it’s not related to the English. However, in the 1960’s, feminist writers coined the term “herstory” to talk about history from women’s perspectives, which is a play on the “his” part.

    Friday, November 9th 2012

well done Emma

Saturday, February 23rd 2013

Thank you very much! so much! but i can’t understand when I’m beginning to speak in English i feel frustration, shy, bad feelings…of course I’m not a native speaker. but already I’m learning English one and half year. So how to avoid it? I need help….

Monday, February 25th 2013

your the best Emma. thanks alot

Your markers are out because you tend to keep them open as you explain the lesson. The best way to prevent your marker from drying out fast is to open and close it intermittently as needed.

Tuesday, March 12th 2013

I got 7 of 7 full mark and stars.

Wednesday, March 13th 2013

Friday, April 5th 2013

Thanks for this great lesson, Emma.

Hi emma you did a great job in this lesson but I have a doubt in this sentence: Someone has left their belonging here. Is this sentence correct? because I have someone which is singular, and then I have “their” which implies plural. Which posesive adjetive do I have to use in that sentence? Cuold it be its?

Thursday, May 2nd 2013

Only 1 wrong…..

Thursday, May 9th 2013

thank you Emma. in this domain I have a similar subject that I hope will not be embarrassing:
when I teach some words from English to Arabic like: zip, unique, zebra and cosmetics I feel embarrassed because these words have sexy denotations in Arabic (the organs of men and women ! ! !)male students begin to laugh _ female students feel shy and sometimes go out of the class! ! ! what should I do? !

Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

Absolutely…100 % with you. Thanks .

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thanks Emma! Two questions about this video:
1.- It would be also possible saying:”A good manager should know its staff”?
2.- Could you write down the expression you used at the very moment you couldn’t use anymore your marker at the beginning of the lesson?
Thanks again!

Monday, June 17th 2013

thank you a lot Emma ,
You lesson was very helpful.

Wednesday, January 21st 2015

Hi Emma ! )This lesson is in razlele “1-Beginner” but it is not. Because: 1) Your speech is too fast (that would be able to understand its beginning); 2) an explanation difficult to understand because there examples that Tolna in words and not, unfortunately, illustrative drawings and so forth …. Although, as a woman you really like me Emma 10/10, but as a teacher 8/10. And I appreciate that lesson on 5/10.

Wednesday, February 25th 2015

Hello my teacher Emma,

Thank you
it’s a great lesson

Monday, December 21st 2015

Thanks Emma. This is a great lesson.
You talk about “police officers” on the video, so I’d like to ask you what’s the difference between “police officer” and “cop”? I think that the first option is a formal way of saying it, and that the second option is informal, but I’m not sure. And also, can we say “cop” for women or it is only for men?

In conclusion, what we use the plural like they, their is the best expression rather better than singular to avoid sexism.

Hi Emma, thanks for the video
for me at the first approach it looked strange and ridiculous, in my country a fireman is still a fireman and I don’t think it is a problem for anybody….

Thursday, June 20th 2019


I need to ask. In a work context, when there is a situation in which the supervisor ask the staff to clean and tidy the work place or whatever and your male workmate ignore the supervisor’s demand assuming that it’s just women that should clean….what’s a polite way to answer to expressions like: “women clean much better than men”? or “you look very sexy with that broom”?


Wednesday, April 15th 2020

Thanks a lot, Emma.
