    Vous devriez vous presser
    Vous n’avez pas le temps de gaspiller

      Great. That’s good you have a lot of free time that you can check the website over and over again and be the first one!!!

      Saturday, February 25th 2017

        Or that’s good you access to the net in everywhere.

        Saturday, February 25th 2017

    Good morning, KOTOZ! Good for you, not very good for us. You are really good for challenging: you’ve moped the floor with our group (I mean you defeated us easily, an idiom. I wrote this on purpose not to offend someone with the expression)
    New points:
    It looks like kotoz is going to tear us all!!!
    SKIKDA: 3
    Nataanna: 2
    Nkh.453: 1
    Kotoz : 3!!!!!!
    Canardo: 1
    Well done!
    Thanks to Ronnie, but I suppose I should be Adam’s lesson!
    Not the topic is confusing but changing places with Adam!

      Hello my friends. I’m here with a new suggestion to make here a better and funner place. I feel, in the

      Saturday, February 25th 2017

        Sorry, I continue:
        I feel in these days, the web site should be funner and more interesting. So here’s my suggestion: I’m really interested in knowing different countries and becoming familiar with their cultures, sightseeing, etc. So let’s familiarize our country to each other. I start first;
        You can visit this website to see my country sightseeing, then come here and tell your opinion about them. We can do it one by one
        http://www.yekfun.com/what-is-the-most-beautiful-place-in-iran/
        For example I realllllly like to know and see your sightseeing, Nataanna and SKIKDA, and others.

        Saturday, February 25th 2017

          Hi, nkh453! Thanks a lot for the beautiful slide-show, you`ve given a link to. I enjoed it very much. Is the picture of Nobar Bath HouseTabriz on your profile?
          Your idea is great. But, I think we should describe something about your country (may be a place of interesting). Like as you wrote before.
          And on my opinion, it is more intersting to know some customs, something about relationships, traditions, habits etc.
          For example, education…. You`ve already raised the topic. I was surprised about disciplines you should take to enter the medicine Uni. Why do you need maths and physics and no chemistry and biology to study?

Thank you for your always crazy lesson .
Crazynees is in every langage . Do you know how we say take a dump in French …… To get the cake out of the mould . Ain’t it a poetic expression .

See you soon for other weird words and expressions and that doesn”t make me hate english .

      Thursday, March 2nd 2017

Thank you Ronnie. If I’m not wrong you ha mentioned, you will make a lesson from new words that we make. I mean you wanted us to mash up and make new words, then you make a lesson from these. Do you remember????

Saturday, February 25th 2017

    I had a mistake: …you had mentioned…

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Dear Ronnie,
i glad to say that i have learning an excellent way to learn English in your classed at Engvid.com, specially your strange voices during class l really like that, OK i have a seen a video on net using the sentence (The salinity of the oceans is not uniform) is this a correct sentense of not please guide your obedient student (Nabi Ahmed)

Saturday, February 25th 2017

good lesson

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Hi Ronnie,
I hear you said that took a dump in 4:06, right?

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Thanks Ronnie for this lesson, it was easy and fun…

Saturday, February 25th 2017

You are completely right, those things do not make sense, but it was really interesting. Thanks Ronnie!!

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Thanks for a lesson, I think every language have funny mistakes.

Saturday, February 25th 2017

A good place to visit to Poland is Wroclaw :)

Saturday, February 25th 2017

It hasn’t been a crazy lesson but with a little general sense, I would say that we have learned some ambiguities of the English language, I haven’t realized about the difference among these expressions because I don’t use the English to communicate and speak in Spain, but I do it when I have to arrange a journey to Poland then I have to use the English with fluency. But anyway, I always need to hear to our teachers of EngVid to practice and built my communication skills, a great method to learn English. Like the motto of the president of USA, “Make your English great again”, that’s the question. Thanks a lot, teacher Ronnie, it has been an original lesson.

Saturday, February 25th 2017

    I think I made a mistake in… “practice and build…”. Thanks.

    Saturday, February 25th 2017

Hi
Oh I like this way of teaching ,it is intresting
thanks

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Good job!

Saturday, February 25th 2017

Thank you for a lesson!

Sunday, February 26th 2017

Hi Ronnie. Thank you for the lesson.
I have 5pairs of undies but they disappear for some reason frequently. I don’t have any bra, needless to say, I’m a male.
I haven’t slept like a baby for long time because my body is itchy😢
I take a dump every morning after drinking some coffee. My stomach is vulnerable with caffeine but I can’t stop drinking coffee.
Someday I’d like to eat chicken fingers though Japanese cuisine has something like them.
Thank you Ronnie, see you later.

Sunday, February 26th 2017

great Ronnie is back

Sunday, February 26th 2017

    Hello!!!!!

    Sunday, February 26th 2017

Thanks for the lesson, really helpful.

Sunday, February 26th 2017

Great lesson but i can’t agree with Chicken Fingers being a bad name. Cut off your finger,fry it in frying pan and it’s going to look exactly like fried piece of chicken you get in restaurant. In Poland we have also Fish Fingers. Needless to say fishes also don’t have hands. It very intuitive name.

Sunday, February 26th 2017

A phrase ,,chicken fingers” does not sound as bad as ,,fish fingers”. This is ridiculous for me :)

Sunday, February 26th 2017

You are the best teacher I,ve ever known

Sunday, February 26th 2017

Fantastic lesson. Thanks a lot Ronnie!

Sunday, February 26th 2017

Ronnie, it is extremely funny test)))thanks
i laughed a lot

Monday, February 27th 2017

dear teacher ronnie I am engvid big fans from Indonesia
can you do or anyone english teacher teach me about the difference between “take for granted”, “take someone from granted” and “take something for granted”
I realy wanna know the answer because I am really courious about the meaning and how to use that expression
thank u so much

Monday, February 27th 2017

    When you take someone for granted, you rely on them, but don’t really appreciate them enough. When you take something for granted, you assume it’s true—even if it isn’t.

    “I do a lot for my boyfriend, but he never thanks me.” “Sounds like he’s taking you for granted.”

    “We took for granted that house prices would always go up. When the housing market crashed, many people realized they weren’t as wealthy as they thought.”

    Monday, February 27th 2017

It’s a pity that I always find a lot of idioms I can’t even understand like “boild down to”, “Catch up” and so on…that together means something else. Does it exist a better way to learn them?

Thursday, March 2nd 2017

I find counterintuitive another expression with the word “take”, and it’s “take sugar in” which actually means put sugar in (tea etc.), not take!

Friday, April 28th 2017

As for free gifts, I used to play a browser game where they actually sold gifts three times a year. The players could get valuable game items from those gifts. It really grated with me, “why are they calling this stuff “gifts”, they are for money, wtf”.

Friday, April 28th 2017

An other “off” expression, which doesn’t make sense for me is: “A light bulb goes off in my head.” So it means after thinking about a problem for some time, I’ve got an idea, so I know how to solve it. So there is some light in my head, because a light bulb goes “off”… Instead of “on”. Crazy :))
Thank you! :)

Monday, July 3rd 2017
