I was really confused. I got 3 correct out of 10. I didn’t breathe deeply at all, did I? I should breathe deeply before I would take tests every time. Thank you for your great lesson and advice, Emma :)

Sunday, June 29th 2014

I see something which is not true.
There are more than 3 passages in the general module (5 or 6). The last one is the hardest and is academic style.

9/9 I’m getting prepared for IELTS. The truth is, the listening part is the hardest for me. Because you must listening and at the same time choose the correct words to fill in the gap in the answer sheet, and in the process you get lost in the listening.

Thanks Emma.

you”r is very good teacher.I like you..

Tuesday, July 15th 2014

Hi Emma! How are you? I’ve been watching your lessons and I have to say, you are my favorite teacher here. That’s the first time I’m watching english lessons with native speakers. It’s far better than brazilians teachers, because often times they teach in portuguese (There are great teachers here, but I’m really excited to wath the whole thing in english). I’m very insecure with the grammar. I know it’s too much to ask, but it will be really wonderful if someday we can watch all the grammar book in videos. Meanwhile, I like to give a tip for a next video. If I may suggest. Last night I was watching “Friends” with english subtitles and one expression took me by surprise. I’m not secure in how to use “Whatsoever” (“Whatever” it’s more common). I didn’t understand exactly how to use this in a sentence. Congratulations to your lessons! Marco from Sao Paulo, Brazil. PS: Sorry for my grammar mistakes.

Tuesday, July 15th 2014

Hi Emma. My name’s Daniela.
I’m an Italian women graduated in Foreign Languages.
Thanks to this website….with nothing else but English native speakers…I realize “what a mess my English is”!
i mean that my English value is about 5 out of 10. I feel really sad.
….and I’m looking for a new job! The only thing have to do is to pratize every single day of my life from now on.

Wednesday, July 16th 2014
