I was hoping that you´d speak a bit more slowly, but… Your lesson is funny! You´re a incredible teacher!

Monday, July 4th 2011

I always thought that some of my teatchers were odd… after seeing this lesson, I begin to understand why …!!! Students without pen and paper? Answering mobile phone during a lesson? To have to explain that to learn something you need to do your homework and participate in class… (Really guys, it’s a new thing for you?!) Poor teatchers!! You all deserve a medal!!!

Monday, July 4th 2011

James,you are amzing teacher. I feel like to study English when I have watched your video here.

Monday, July 4th 2011

A thief steals a patrimony, but don’t steals the intelligence. A problem destroys a patrimoy; but don’t important if you do not have money, for you is a person blessed, do you have largest of all patrimony: Your intelligence; take care of it.
(Augusto Cury)

Is there anyone want to learn English together with me?
I learn English myself at home. And I really want to find a partner to improve together. Because it is difficult when you learn without practice. We can practice together. Hope someone will contract me later. My email address is “s414572@gmail.com”
I’m waiting for you , my friends.
