      Hi Roya!
      Could you please give me an advice for learning English, In September I’m going to study an English course, it would be very useful to hear or know what a master English student has a say on the language.
      Thanks in advance!

      Sunday, March 27th 2016

        Hello Basri,

        Are you going to do a course in your country or abroad? Your English seems good. If you want to improve your language, you need to learn English vocabulary every day. And you know, you shouldn’t forget about English grammar. All in all, you should surround yourself with this language. That is listening to the music, watching TV, reading newspapar and so on, all in the English language. And after a while, you will see your results. I hope this will help. If you have other questions about English, you can write to my e-mail.

        Best Regards,

        Thursday, April 7th 2016

          Thank you for replaying to me, it was kind of u!
          I am going to attend an English course abroad(actually the country I was born at, hehehe, Sweden)
          Your advice was really helpful, thank again!
          Ok I will write and ask you anything I wonder, hehehe if you don’t mind :)

          Best Regards

          Thursday, April 7th 2016

    Tuesday, November 3rd 2015

Always excellent classes! Thanks Emma!

Wednesday, July 22nd 2015

Really thanks!

You caught me in the exercises where you used “in spite” instead of “despite”

Wednesday, July 22nd 2015

    Despite = In spite of but despite is more formal. h

    Thursday, July 23rd 2015


    “In spite of” is always followed by “of” + gerund/”the fact that”/noun, while “Despite” is NEVER followed by the preposition “of”.

    For more examples you might as well check out the “Get it right!” section at http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/despite

    Un cordial saludo,

    Thursday, July 23rd 2015

      Thanks, David !:)

      Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

Hi Emma,

Another fantastic lesson. Congrats for your great job.

But I still have a question: is it grammatically correct to say “I personally prefer/think/believe…” or this adverb “personally” is redundant?

Thank you.

Wednesday, July 22nd 2015

Thank you very much for your explanation.
Let’s keep in touch.

Thursday, July 23rd 2015

I got 100 , thanks Emma.
which of these conjunctions are formal?
I think “nevertheless” is most formal, can we use it in conversation?

Thursday, July 23rd 2015

    Hi friend. I understood that all of them are formal the same way, but we can use them in formal conversation, whenever we want to sound better.

    Thursday, July 23rd 2015

Hi Emma, thank you for your informative lesson.
But personally, I find this a diplomatic way of speech. I hate people saying this to me especially if they are my boss; my friend, that’s fine. It is kind of hypocritical. In Hong Kong slang: “一啖沙糖一啖金”

Friday, July 31st 2015

Thank you!

Sunday, August 2nd 2015

Although I like the other teachers , I prefer you Emma :P

Monday, August 3rd 2015

Hi Valen, I really enjoy your videos, however, it is too bad that you don’t know the difference between the word continent and the word consonant, as you have clearly demonstrated in your video, ‘Comparative Adjectives’. North America is a continent. B,C,D,F, etc. are consonants.

Monday, August 3rd 2015

thank you Emma, you are the best. I want to talk with you.

Sunday, January 24th 2016

Thank you Emma

Sunday, January 24th 2016

Hi. Thank for the clear lesson.
DESPITE the cristal-clear lesson, I have a doubt:

Is it mandatory to add the comma when starting the sentence with a subordinate clause?
“Although I prefer skiing (,) many people prefer running”.

Somewhere I saw that british grammar makes it optional (not a mistake like the quizz states).

Tuesday, January 26th 2016

    Sorry for the spelling mistakes done before. =)

    Should I use “Despite” followed only by a name, not by a verb as you said?
    Can’t I say “Despite LOVING the beech, I prefer the mountain”?

    Thank you.

    Tuesday, January 26th 2016

Finnaly, I learned to make opposing ideas in English!

Tuesday, January 26th 2016

Hi Emma & everyone~

Tuesday, August 16th 2016

why some times the punctuation of however diverse
and other times we use
wish a quick answer

Thursday, August 25th 2016

    I think that this “;” (semicolon) is commonly used to link ideas (to show that the second sentence is a contrast to the first sentence in this case).

    I guess that there is no difference between that two structures and both are correct. :)

    Friday, August 26th 2016

thanks for answering
is your English strong enough to correct essays
i am practicing for academic writing and my test will take place in September . and i need some one to correct essays for me
if yes then i am looking forward for your acceptance

Friday, August 26th 2016

thanks Emma
Although your lecture was very useful,but it might be better if you had explained how can we use “in spite” too.

Dear Emma,
Thank you so much for this class!!! It helps me a lot and I love the way you explained it. However, in this class, you explained about using the word Despite but not In spite of, so, when I did the test I was focusing on using “Despite”. Could you please, clarify if Despite and In spite of are having the same meaning? Beast Regards, Nancy
