Good morning Emma mam. Thank you for this wonderful lesson. You have made my writing skills into another advanced level. And also you made me more confident to write more essays. Whatever essay will come I will remember all you have taught me and get food marks in the university. Thank you once again for this wonderful video and also boosting up my confidence for writing essays.

    I’ve already heard of paraphrasing before, however I’ve never put it into use because I didn’t know how to do it.

    It is a useful technique to improve your writing skills, but as any other language skill, it takes time and practice to develop it.

    Many thanks Emma for this superb video lesson.

    Bye for now.

Tuesday, September 13th 2016

Paraphrasing is so much handy when writing an essay, but it takes words, which takes improving vocabulary, which takes researching. For those who like to read, dictionaries can be pretty handy with their definitions to put these synonyms into practise, too. Bye the way, thanks teacher Emma. This lesson is very important.

Tuesday, September 13th 2016

    Oops! I meant “by the way”. My mistake :(

Hi Emma and everybody:)Firstly,many thanks for this useful lesson;however,ı have some troubles in the use of would and reduction.I mean,of course,ı know how to use them grammatically;nevertheles,I sometimes cannot understand the use of would in a sentence or conversation especially in the native speakers’ conversations.Can you make a lesson about this?Because I use ‘would’ with if conditionals(type 2 and 3) or for desire,inclination,polite requests and so on.I wonder that are there other uses for would and can you share these with us?Thanks in Advance

Hi Emma. Actually this is very good lesson but whule you decribe the lesson you said don’t copy the title of the essay. I understhood that and i know it is plagiarism. So between the topic sentance and my opinion. There is something that we call “hook up” so if i wanna do hook up and i use the topic sentance with qoutation marka. Is that broblem ? As you mentioned in the lesson try to change every word. Absolutely you right but i am weak from vocabulary

What is the type of this essay?

Millions of people every year move to English-speaking countries such as Australia, Britain or America, in order to study at school, college or university.

Why do so many people want to study in English?

Why is English such an important international language?

Give reasons for your answer.

Tuesday, August 28th 2018

    yes dear English is an international language
    for me the main reason is the best universities are in this countries or in others but teching in English
    so English is very important addaitionlly to the new reserches and the big amount of books are writen in English so thats mean .. more English =more knowledge

Saturday, May 9th 2020

Help! Did I fall into a rabbit hole? I have understood the meaning of the word “important”, using N.American English, to indicate something that is “significant” but not to indicate a keystone.
Whereas the words “essential” and “vital” tend to imply a requirement or something which is indispensable; a must-have-or-else sort of thing. For example “Water plays an “important” role in keeping a plant alive.” or perhaps, “Water plays a “significant” role in keeping a plant alive.” Implying plants should be watered.
However, if someone said, “Water plays a “vital” role in keeping a plant alive.” or “Water plays an “essential” role in keeping a plant alive.” it implies plants cannot live without water, no? Or, is it me? I welcome your input. Education is an important factor for speaking with clarity, but it isn’t vital or essential in order for one to speak well. (My English may be full of mistakes, a reason why I am using this site.) I should add, I am also asking for clarification because that was the only question I got wrong! Ha! ;-)

Saturday, May 9th 2020

Yay 10/10! This is a great and simple refresher. Thanks for this.

Monday, June 1st 2020

Thanks Mrs Emma

Sunday, June 21st 2020

Hi Emma! Your lesson is so helpful. Keep up the excellent work. The only request I think would help even more is if we get the answer wrong on the quiz, it would explain why that’s the wrong answer.

Wednesday, June 24th 2020

Now I know :0 I’ve heard about paraphrasing before but I’d never intentionally applied it in my writings. I usually copy the question or restructuring it but still using the same words – just to make it long -_-

Monday, July 6th 2020

    Thank you so much Teacher Emma ^_^ I’m so happy that I’ve found Engvid, I wish I found it much earlier. So, I could write a good essay but I think it’s also a good thing for me to learn it now especially for this year’s grade level. #feeling left out:|

    Monday, July 6th 2020

Hello Emma,

I found your video to be very helpful. I took the quiz and got a perfect score. I look forward to watching more of your videos.
