Hi there,
It’s a pleasure 2 c u again,hope all’s well with u.Everything was new n fantastic n I’ve learnt alot through.7/8 seems nice.
I adore slangs n I really enjoyed.
But the ? is:” freak me ” means what plz?!!
Best of luck!


    hello fatima
    I am an english student.could you tell me how to download this website lessons?


      Hi there,
      I’ve seen the videos ever n never bcoz you tube problems in the country un4tunately!
      By “it’s a pleasure 2 c u again” I meaned Emma’s new presentation.But I’ve learnt a lot through quizzes n comments till now.
      Goodluck with ur English.


        Hello Fatima!

        Just a quick suggestion for this and I quote you: “But I’ve learnt a lot through quizzes n comments till now.” Rather than saying “till now” is; So far. It’s more polite.

        Have a good day.


          Hi! I agree! I think we should be more polite here, Talk almost formaly . Slangs and short forms are not suitable in here and also not known for all, like me! Best regards


          Mod here! While you do have to be polite, slang and abbreviations are okay. We try to cover English for all kinds of situations, including casual ones. People want to learn how to write an essay, but they also want to understand spoken English, jokes, texts, etc.

          Grammar and spelling mistakes are okay too. The most important thing is practicing your English. The more you do, the easier it will get.

The lesson was very interest and you very charming teacher.Thank you.


Great lesson, lots of useful expressions, some of them I’ve already known, some of them are new for me. Sometimes I have a feeling that the Hell is just a softer form of F- word :D
I know that Avril Lavigne has a song called What the Hell.
Anyway, thanks for lesson!

I liked this lesson


you’re a hell teacher !!!!!


    Thanks everyone for your comments. I think you mean hell of a teacher Albert.


      hell teacher his mean you has teach us about hell expression so he call hell teacher its mean oposite with you had explained


      thnks emma madam

      ajmal khan

      How the hell did you say “He’ll” should be pronounced with a a short e sound (I – hill), not a long e sound (i – he) like it should be!


      Hi. Can we use this expression in a good meaning? Can we say you are a hell teacher or you are a hell man?


      Hi, Emma. This is Waseem from Pakistan. I have saved your video lesson in my mobile. These are really helpful. I’m grateful to you. God bless you!

      Waseem malik

Hi there, thanks for the lesson!!.

I’ve got a question, Emma. I’ve also heard the word “HECK”— certanly less times than heck— (“what the heck”, “who the heck”, and so on).
Is this word an euphemism of the word “hell”? If I use this, am I being less impolite?.

Thanks for your answer in advance.


    Hi oswcifre,

    I’m glad you brought up the word heck. We can use heck like we use hell. For example, Who the heck is that? What the heck?

    It is used in the same way as hell, but it is much more polite. Heck is an old-fashioned term, so young people don’t really use it. In general, they prefer to use hell.

    Here are some examples of other words people use instead of swear words to be more polite:

    “darn” instead of “damn”
    “shoot” instead of “shit”
    “Oh my gosh” instead of “Oh my god”
    “Frig” instead of “fuck”

    Again, these words are often considered old-fashioned. You will hear older speakers use them more frequently.


      thanks emma, you da best


      Thank you Emma.


      Hi Emma

I drove to the hills for the hell of it.

If some one ask me about about learning English my answer is hell yaah!

    Great examples!!! You did a hell of a job!! (Another expression with hell meaning you did a great job.) I’ve just made a few minor corrections (mainly punctuation).

      samar hussain

I really appreciated. Thank you.


Hell yeah to this lesson. I really appreciate the many examples you use. Thanks for share your knowledge and time with us.


Hell yeah! This is fun! I like it!




Thank You Very Much Its great lessom


That’s awesome, can u bring other expressions?. I loved it


Hi..I like you teach on video.But i don’t understand for the hell that how to use and talk to other. For example(When the hell are you sleeping or when are you sleeping? It is two questions correct or not? thank you.

Judah fish

    Thank you for your question. Look at the two examples.

    1)When are you going to bed?
    2)When the hell are you going to bed?

    Both examples are correct. In the first example, we don’t really know the emotion of the speaker.

    When we add “the hell” to a question, it adds emotion to the question. We know that the speaker is either surprised, often in a bad way or frustrated. It intensifies a question.

    I might ask “When the hell are you going to bed?” meaning I am surprised and maybe upset that you haven’t gone to bed yet.

    To show you are surprised or upset, you can add “the hell” to the questions who, what, where, when, why, and how. Remember, “the hell” sounds a little rude, so it’s better to use these phrases with friends.


with teachers like you ,hell yes.






Thank You Emma from Tajik student.You and Your teammate making a great job helping people learning English using amazing way of expressions !!!Thanks a lot ENGVID-TEAM !!!

Please help me I want to learn English my skybe (azooooza9)


i don’t know what to say.you are great emma. thx


Emma, I have a question:

what are these verbal forms: going’, catchin’, makin’. Are variations of “ing form”?


    Hi Bruno,

    You`re correct. They are variations in the pronunciation of ing. Goin`, comin`, catchin`, makin`, `fishin` are examples of the informal pronunciations of going, coming, catching, making, and fishing. You may hear people pronunciate `ing` this way depending on where they come from and what their accent is. In writing however, these words should be spelt correctly.


      For the first time in my life I saw the verb “pronunciate”. Emma, did you make mistake or it really does exist?


        Good query!
        I do agree.


        Yeah, it also sounds weird to me. . .


        It exists, but it’s an uncommon verb. I should have used “pronounce”.


          Hell yes :))


what the hell is she doing?


what the hell are you doing?

Hi,Bruno, yes , but the american people say : chatin’, makin’ that’s mean : verb+in’ without ing, that’s common, but grammer you should say and write : with ing like chating
and , there are many words like that:” want to= wanna , going to = ganna, have to = hafta, etc, in the left side in grammer and in the right side in American English


    Great explanation hudhayfah!

    Hi Mohammed
    why do you call yourself Jesus although you are Moslem ?


      hello bro sameh77,
      first, i want to thank teacher Emma about the lesson.

      second, where is the problem. we have this name in our religion and it refers to the prophet Jesus(peace be upon him)and we believe in him like our prophet Mohammed and others(peace be upon him), so there is no problem to name people after him…

      just to inform you.
      good luck


        (peace be upon them)


    These are all great examples of expressions with the word hell.

    I have not heard the first two before. They are uncommon in Canada.

    “A hell of a lot” is a large amount of something. It is a common expression.

    eg) I have a hell of a lot of work to do.

    “Go to hell in a handbasket” means to deteriorate or become worse fast. It is not very common.

    eg) He thought education in his country was going to hell in a handbasket when his daughter couldn’t tell him the name of the capital city.


It was very funny to see how an agel explains about HELL! ha-ha


wow, l learn like hell this word and it’s idiom’s thanks alot dear Emma
Best wishes.


hi Emma
i writes and reads very well but the problem is in listening.

Thanks a lot for your great lesson, Emma.
Anyway, I love your smile :)




Hangover, what the hell happened last night? very funny ! ^^



I love you Emma.

Your explanation was awasome.

Thanks a lot


glib tongue


Hi Emma!
Just out of curiosity, in the last example, I remember that Dante´s hell is cold as ice in his Comedy, truly an exception in the collective imaginary that hell is always hot :)


    Hell yeah!!


      That’s interesting! I haven’t read it yet. It’s strange to imagine hell as a cold place.


        Cold or hot. It´s better don´t go to Hell. Heaven it´s better than Hell. |0|


    What kind of place ‘hell’ is/was has changed over the centuries. In middle Ages the representation of hell was very cold place, with a lot of ice and frosty weather. But nowadays the hell is represented as very hot place with a lot of fire.


Thanks Emma,You’re doing a hell of the teaching ,great teacher ,God bless you .


Well done, Emma!
I mean all of your three lessons.


thank you good job
i want ask if we can say a hell
not the hell it make different in means

thanks for the lessen

thank you


    Hi Taher I am Sameh I m from Mansoura Egypt can we make friends


    Certain expressions always have “the”.

    eg) When the hell did you get married? Why the hell did you do that?

    Other expressions always have “a”.

    eg) You did a hell of a job. I have a hell of a lot of work today.

    In other cases, there is no article.

    eg) I hope I don’t get sent to hell. Hell is a horrible place.


Hi Emma,
It is really fun to learning English with you guys i enjoyed it a lot.

“when the hell did you get married?”
Hell no!

Hello Emma I`ve just signed up in here, I`m thrilled that I can find so many Idioms and slangs in this website, You have no idea how crazily I`m fond of knowing new expression,In a word I`m an slang freak ;)


    The same 2 me!
    In fact I’m keen on Idioms n Slangs.

    Goodluck with ur English!


Very interesting and complete lesson! Thanks!


Thanks, i really appreciate, you are really an amiable girl.


good job emma!


Thank you, Emma.
I saw many times the expression “hell of a (someone/smth.)” and i didn’t know what it meant.
Hell of a day! Hell of a country! etc.
finally i see, it means – big, solid, cute, good, exceptional. but it’s hard to understand it for the first time. when you read the book or listen to the song.
hell of a slang! ))


i would like to hear expressions engaged with F*CK :)))


hell yeah emma u taught us like hell and forget your lesson when the hell freezes over and it seems i’m not doing for the hell of it… :)


Thanks so much for the worth teaching


hello Emma Teacher i have a question.
Can we use ”hell” all the places?Or we just use it with our close freind and etc?


    Hi Oguz,

    Hell expressions are best used with friends. You will hear them on TV shows and in movies. These expressions are not good to use at work, with your teacher or in other formal settings. Some people may find them rude.


thanx maam for nice expressions of hell……..


Dear Emma,
Would u mind 2 lend me a helping hand plz?!!I wanna know may we use “what the hell” instead of “it doesn’t matter”???!
N can we use it when we r surprised by sth??!
Cheer up!


    Hi Fatima,

    When you use the expression “what the hell”, the tone of your voice is important.

    You can use “what the hell” when you are surprised by something. Just remember, it is slang, so you won’t want to use it at work or in formal situations.

    When we use “what the hell” to mean I don’t care, our tone of voice changes.

    Here is an example of what the hell. In this example it means I don’t care or I am not worried.

    eg) I was going to work on my essay this evening, but what the hell – let’s go see a movie instead.

    It’s similar to it doesn’t matter, but not the exact same.


hi Emma thanks for ur lesson i got em but sometimes i hear smart as hell and straight as hell ok i know smart as hell meaning that he-she is very smart but i’m asking u if it has another meaning and is there any word may i use it like smart as hell ??????


    Hi Yehia,

    You’re correct in your understanding. The word hell is used for emphasis. In your example, it means very smart.

    We can also say someone is “funny as hell” meaning very funny, “quick as hell” meaning very quick, “crazy as hell” meaning very crazy, “sexy as hell” meaning very sexy, “nasty as hell” meaning very nasty, etc.

    Remember, these expressions are informal. Some people might find them rude, so don’t use them in formal settings.


I’m studying English like hell!
It’s 3 a.m. right now, I better go sleep ^^
Thank You, Best Wishes!


Oooh .. !!
what the hell .. I qquickly understood .. hehehe
thanxXx Emma

Emma you’re a beautiful and sweet teacher!

Eric Jean

all of this teacher are very good


Hey Emma! You’re really awesome, thanks for your lessons.

What I’d like to know is if ‘Like hell!’ means the same as ‘Hell no’ in certain cases. For example,

-You will have to work 7 days a week from now on.
-Like hell (I’m gonna do this)!



you are really a great teacher.

Thanks a lot


when hell freeze’s over what does this means


    Hi!Azra, answering the the question that you had asked about the meaning of ¨When hell freezes over it means like it´s never going to happen, For example you would say I will jump off the Naigara falls when hell freezes over…. Meaning I´ll never jump off the naigara fall…. This example is pretty straightforward I mean very easy,I hope you have undertood, You take care!! Azra22


Hey! Hi! Emma, Just to let you know that you did a tremendous job by bringing up this Hell expression, Like you said it`s extremelly usedful in Movies, sitcoms,reality shows,everyday conversations and whatnot, You did a hell of great job! Keep up the good work girl! Nicely done!


I’m exciting on your lesson of u. It makes me study like hell! thanks for all thing!
have a nice day.


Hi Emma,
I say, Hell YES!


It’s a very interesting axplanation of “hell expressions”. Thank you!


Great lesson Emma! Question: “Hell” as in bad or wrong? Such as: this cake tastes like hell (Bad Flavour) or last time I tried to give him some advise, it went like hell. Are these sentences right? Tks!


Fill in the blank: To _____________ with it! I give up.

Emma I said “the hell”.
But, “hell” was correct? Why? If you answer my question, I will be appreciate.


I’m a teacher of physics a secondary school.

And my style of teaching, such as your style!

By the way I see the first lesson in this series I have been downloaded all your lessons .
I have a question??
Is it possible to change the formulas in the previous lesson, for example saying;
When the hell he succeeded in the test !!

When we see a lazy student success in the test .

Thank you very much, and I hope to give us more


Sure, my answer will be “Hell yeah!”
You’re awesome!


Hell yes, I will continue watching yours videos, they are great!!!!


Excellent issues altogether, you simply received a new reader. What might you suggest about your publish that you simply made a few days in the past? Any sure?

Dear Ms Emma thank you very very much, you are a great teacher and choose great & interesting topics to teach. I’ve got much benefits from your lessons, well-done and take care


hi.emma could you give me solution for about my speaking still broken. tell me now,please


Hi emma!
you are a great teacher!
i don’t understand the word ‘intensifier’ on the board, i think that that word is intensified!


Great lesson! I liked it, even thought I knew almost all the expressions. The only thing that I would like to say is that if your is pregnant and you need to go to the hospital what you should NOT do is drive recklessly; probably you said it with your best intention, but it’s a very advice. In that case you should drive always in a calm and safety way. :)


Great lesson! I liked it, even thought I knew almost all the expressions. The only thing that I would like to say is that if your wife is pregnant and you need to go to the hospital what you should NOT do is drive recklessly; probably you said it with your best intention, but it’s a very bad advice as it would be worse to have an accident in the way to the hospital and that is what probably would happen. In that case you should drive always in a calm and safety way or ask for help to the police. :)


you’re fantastic, It was great. thanks a lot.


haha, I got 8 out of 8, what the hell going on? i’ve just having a class with Emma! :D

Hello, Emma
I am a teacher of English at an international school in the United States, I really love this lesson and would like to use it in a lesson on peer-coaching. I was wondering if there are any inhibitions regarding this copyright-wise or something.


Hello, Emma!
I love the way you pronounce the word. You are a great teacher because you have a wonderful ability to explain the sentences with examples. I’m learning a lot from you videos. Hell yeah! your are great teacher …….


hi , Emma

Hi Emma,
Is there any possibility to invite you to Ankara/Turkey for a 2 weeks session english with my 17 years young son who is a two times osteosarcoma survivor? Please tell me also the financial aspect which off course is entirely and only upto your decision. all the best.
father of a hero


can i ask u something? could u possibly tell us where we can use the structures like ‘will have+pp’ or ‘can’t have+pp’?
i wanna know in which situation we use them


    Hello. I think some examples will help you better: Ted and Amy have been married for 24 years( Present perfect)
    1) Next year they will have been married for 25 years .
    2) He is a slow worker and he will not have finished his work before 6 o’clock.

    I hope these help you. Best regards


here’s another question.Are we supposed to say ‘who the hell is he?’ or ‘who in hell is he?’
Which one does make more sense?
Thank u a million times


Good lesson! I liked it! Hell yeah!


Hi!! Here is Daniel from Brazil. I would like to know why you teach this lessons for free. You could have a lot of money if you were teaching at a formal school. The world needs more people like you!!! Thanks a lot! Ta-ta for now!!


im really lookin forward to gettin an answer.
please help me


Very good and very usefull. Thanks.


iam realy thank you emma it is sooooooooo useful


1- GIVE SOMEONE HELL= to speak to someone in a very angry way. E.g.: My wife’s giving me hell for not selling the car.
2- GO TO HELL= insult (rude, not polite). E.g.: Go to hell!, I’m not gonna help you anymore.
3- TO / THE HELL WITH IT!= an expression used to reject an idea. E.g.: person 1: hey lets all go to that party and get drunk tonight! person 2: to hell with that! I have finals in the morning!
4- FOR THE HELL OF IT= without having any particular reason or purpose. E.g.: I have no practical use for the Finnish language, but I’m studying it for the hell of it.
5- LIKE HELL= used for describing a verb very badly. E.g.: My shoulder hurt like hell.
6- WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER= signifies that something will never happen. E.g.: – Chris are you planning to marry Maria. – Oh yes!, when hell freezes over.. haha.

Hi Emma’
The recently these days I’m in deliberate watched the You Tobe on the net and link to address of EngVid.com at the end of video.So I can watch plenty helpful lessons from you & your friends.
this is my opinions that you are the best teacher I have ever seen , in the each lesson you raised suit example with explain carefully it took everyone easier to understand.This is very very important to beginning learner as me, if some words or sentences without explaining in the using we could not understand , the dictionary helping limited and confusing in use.
I don’t have the time to learn English at school or center but now I got you now, you are the best key to help me opening to learn English, I think I am fortunate.I wish your family & you healthy , prosperous forever let you build more the lessons for everybody in the world .
one again thankful, grateful to you and your friends ,keep up at good work.

Best Regards,
Khoa (Mr) from Vietnam

Nando Rodrigues

Thanks again.


Thanks Emma and what the hell to see good speaking English language


Great explanation in a very fun way with understanding examples. I can say, To hell with him, if my friend is not answer me when I calling him. If somebody ask me why did you do that I can say for the hell of it, if I don’t have a reason for doing that or I do it for fun. I can say: When the hell freezes over when I think I never do this. A: When are going to watch football game? B: I’ll watch it when the hell freezes over.

Jon Snow

A guy likes me but we have different religion so I’ll be in a relationship with him when hell freezes over.


Hi, Mam Emma, you are a really nice teacher, I have learned a lot from you and learning. thank you so much.
