Hi Jon,

In my country this game is called “jogo da velha” which means: “the old woman game”. Hahahahah, what a name!!!
Now, the practice is fantastic! That really forces our brain to think in English.
Thanks for the class!

Hello Jon. This is your story: “One day, I was walking down the street and I saw a dog, then the dog ran up to me and I thought that if the dog wanted to play. I bent down to pat the dog but he just turned around and peed on my leg”. Is it correct?? I typed while you told it…

Friday, November 25th 2011

Hiii Jon..
This lesson is really funny and interesting and the story is also nice..This story turns out in mywords as below by adding some extra words..On a sunny morning when I was heading to school,I came across a wild,angry dog.It looked like some one had beaten it up mercilessly..The colour of its body was white and some black,long stains could easily be seen.That might have made it too furious.When I had seen it first time I felt a kind of sympathy for it as I have had a pet dog at my home too and really love it.[[I feed it up in my hands.Everyday when I get back home after school, it waits for me at the entrance and when it gets to see my face,it gets cool .After I pat it by touching on its body softly,it actually spares me and lets me allow do something.It is actually a different story
]. Meanwhile, something had passed through this trusted animal because of which it rubbed its foot on ground and started moving towards me .When it had got to me,it started panting faster-that made the space completely wet though I did not mind anything or did not become angry on it.It ended up on stepping on my leg after being patted..Finally i kissed it on its forehead- I would be happy if you would please check my sentences and correct them and also let me know about my English knowledge–looking forward to getting respose from you at the earliest..

Friday, November 25th 2011

it’s a simple verb.Thank you for helping us…very fun..:)

Friday, November 25th 2011

i just watched your videos and had a few questions. I am having some problems with reading comprehension and i was wondering if there is a way for me to learn it and picking it up without a problem? I seem to lose trace of what im reading and not even comprehending what i just read. I have a test that I am studying for which requires reading comprehension and I definitely need help. Please give me some suggestions. Thank you.

Monday, January 16th 2012

Not bad. I learn from this lesson some new words that you wrote on the board.I can remember a short story but it is not clear when I walk down on the street , I saw a dog which ran around me. And I bench down and patted it but the dog peed me. Hihi.that is not good luck for the man in this story., that is so fun .

Tuesday, January 17th 2012

But I love some story like this one because that is very easy too learn. When somebody hear this story they will not feel boring in learning. That is my opinion.
