Good day, Gill. Thank you so much for your and your collegues gob.
Once I visited that kind of shop and was suprised very much with prices. I didn`t speak english well those days. If I had known that it was for charity, I would certainly have bought something. So, it is one more evidence for studing english. We don`t have charity shops in Russia, only second hand shops. But people in need can obtain help at churches. We distribute

Thank you very much Jill, you are a wonderful teacher. In the last question on the quiz, Is “Italian cooking” a autobiography ?

Thursday, September 22nd 2016

    Hi Arthxs — Italian cooking would go in the Cookery section … unless it’s an autobiography by someone who has spent their entire life doing Italian cooking and nothing else! ;-)

Saturday, September 24th 2016

Thank You Gill. It’s good to know that in a charity shop I could improve my english language skills before I will start to job in another country. Thanks for this advice.

Saturday, September 24th 2016

Hello Gill , Hello everybody,
Thank you Gill for this lesson . More than a lesson it is an invitation to volunteer . It is good to remind us that we can spend time sometimes not for nothing but to get something better than money . No problem If we haven’t time enough to volunteer as we can also go as much as we can to the numerous charity shops that exist either to give things that are no longer of use or buy things and in this way help charity shops to raise money for those in need . Some charity shops employ people that have got rough lives , helping them is give support to these victims of life .
So sorry that thrift stores still exist cause that means that we don’t all make a good living but while waiting for a better solution ” go and enjoy charity shops , donators , volunteers , customers you’ll never regret it .
See you bye

Sunday, September 25th 2016

    Hello, i agree with you about the importance of charity shops and the donation they give, personally, i love this kind of activities, and i wish one day i could be a volunteer in any charity shop. donation make us happy.

Hi Gill!

Great lesson again, thank you. I consider very noble of yours to choose this important social subject while you teach English.

I really would like to buy things in a charity store if I knew one near to my house. Mainly books (I love reading!). By the way, I am reading at the moment a biography called “Life of Harriet Beecher Stowe”, who is my favourite writer, and I am enjoying it a lot.

See you in your next lesson!

Friday, September 30th 2016

Hi Gill! Thank you a lot for teaching us this lesson and congratulations for your job on Engvid!

Sunday, October 2nd 2016

thx & do help a lot

Monday, October 3rd 2016

Thank you

Monday, October 3rd 2016

Thanks Gill, for this lesson and this tip!

Through the Internet, I think we can help some volunteer works and learn English as well, like when developing free software or helping to expand the Wikipedia, for instance, but I have to try a little more to validate this theory. I see this as an option, if someone doesn’t have a charity shop with English speaking persons near.

“Sometimes a charity shop will put a notice in the window asking for volunteers. If there is no notice in the window, you can: – cry.” :) Ha-ha! I like Jill’s lessons not only for their high quality but also for the subtle humour which Jill put in her lessons.

The first pf all, thanks for this lesson which we help to have more vocabulary words, and a big thanks for this subject “charity shop”, it’s very important to have a charity shop in all countries and cities to help homeless people and poor people in their hard life, as a Muslim, i have to be volunteer to do this activities of charity, because God and prophet Mohamed we demanded to do that all time we can.
