Thanks . Jade.

    Writing an introduction for an essay is -I think- the most important and at the same time difficult part in the process; since it provides a general picture of what the whole essay is all about.

    Jade’s guidelines help us organize our ideas in order to develop effective and coherent introductions.

    Many thanks for sharing these writing tips with us Jade.

    Monday, January 19th 2015

Thanks Jade,
I like your classes because eventhough I don’t think to attend an exam like IELTS, but in order to improve my listening skills and to understand a native speakers accent your classes are so helpful.
thank you so much again.

If there is someone who wants to practise in English with me please check my account details.

Monday, January 19th 2015

Thanks Jade for your efforts to help us writing an essay, and for the templates. But the truth is that the explanations were a little bit confusing. You improvise, you must follow a line of thinking, and you didn´t it.

Greetings Jade, Why is it good to follow a structure for writing an introduction in your exam?Because if you don’t, Jade will be angry. ))I loved this one:))) I’ve a question for you Jade, the same one I’d asked to Rebbeca, with all do respect for you, and totally no offense at all, the question is; why do I found it easier to understand everything here in this video:
while I always find it much harder for me to understand the way you talking or lecturing??? appreciate it so much to know your opinion and answer.
Respects. Amer.

Tuesday, March 17th 2015

rhetorical questions;
A rhetorical question is a question that you ask without expecting an answer. The question might be one that does not have an answer. It might also be one that has an obvious answer but you have asked the question to make a point.
‘Can fish swim’? Of course fish can swim and we may say this to make an example in a situation where something is obvious.
On an extremely hot day after walking a long distance, a friend asks; Are you thirsty? And the reply; ‘Can fish swim?’
Other similar examples are;
Can birds fly?
Do dogs bark?
Do cats meow?

Can this be my opinion that “I think the family should pay for the elderly people. But the elderly people whose family are not capable to pay for them,their care expense should be paid by government.” ?

Saturday, August 6th 2016

Thank you so much.. I was looking for something like that :D

Monday, August 8th 2016


Thursday, August 18th 2016

Interesting lesson.

Perhaps the “sometimes” should be clarified. It certainly means that government doesn’t pay for all the elderly people but only for the impecunious people. Then the focus would be more as what to do with the poor elderly people.

Nota bene : It’s not always the case. For example, most government pay for the education of every children even the rich ones.
