    never say never , keep going. that is best heavy sentence.

    Profile photo of mgh mgh

it is not a same meaning? (however and but)

Profile photo of macho macho

    However and but both mean contrast as a lot of other words in English. As writing an formal writen text like an essey one should show concernment as choosing words. In other that, it is smart avoid word repetition and common words (like but), whether there are other options.
    You got it?

    Profile photo of mamrodr mamrodr

      ”However” also express confusion and it insist on the importance of the contrast which come after it
      I think this is the difference between it and “but”.

7/10 listen talking Jade is above all a lesson “per si” anyway today’s lesson was very important. The idea of the plan, summarize the pros and cons, make an introduction and the end conclusion, establishing the relations between the plus and minus points of views, in between of the introduction and the conclusion it’s how one have to make an essay. On the other hand, remember for IELTS, one never must forget to write at least 300 words. Thank’s Jade.

The diction of this teacher is too bad. I understood only few words when she was teaching??

Profile photo of CREBIO CREBIO

    Do not criticize her. Maybe you don’t understand her because she is British, and British English, at least for me, is more difficult to understand. If you are not understanding her, it means you must study British English more.

    Profile photo of Valderí Andrade Valderí Andrade

      That’s right Valderi. She is British with English accent that for me it is the best one! Do not forget that is English is born in England and not somewhere else!

The main disadvantage of study abroad is to get a lower grade compared to the nation students due to the language barrier. When one studies in a foreign country, it is obviously required to speak and write not in the mother tongue but in the new language for the course work. However, getting a lower grade at the beginning cannot be a problem because as long as one stays in the foriegn eviornment, his/her second language will be improved enough to complete the study successfully. In my experience, the college time in the US was the best opportunity to improve my English. Therefore, achieving a foriegn language can pay off getting a lower grade when one studies in abroad.

Hi Ms. Jade, Your lesson always useful for me because you always use British accent when teaching.

I will face Cambridge IGCSE ESL test several months later. Can you give me some tips for it? how to write an article properly? how to start a summary? and I want to know more about what I must say in the speaking section.

Thank’s before, cheer Ms. Jade :)

Hi there :) I took the IELTS exam yesterday and your tips helped me a lot. However I did a mistake. I looked through my essay before I write the conclusion and I realized that I didn’t develop one of my paragraphs as I wanted to, then I used the symbol * to connect the unfinished paragraph with some other words. Do you think that this is going to affect my mark?
