date of birth ….

Thank you Jade. Very glad to have your lesson again.

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Thanks Jade!

A detailed and very useful lesson to whom is or will be looking for a job in UK, and even in other English speaking countries, I think.

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Jade, All the way, out of the way, go out of (someone) way, (someone) way out of. and other expressions using “way” Thank you

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Very useful lesson. Now I’ll improve my writing. And I loved your accent!

Thursday, August 13th 2015

Interesting and very useful.

Thursday, August 13th 2015

I usually do not understand a half of your speaking. Would be very great if you could speak more articulate.

Thursday, August 13th 2015

    Jade’s speaking is actually very clear and comprehensible. You would hear much “worse” pronunciation in the UK.

    Learners come here to listen to authentic English, not to a fake puppet :) You can always turn on closed captioning (subtitles) on Youtube to catch the words you don’t understand. Practice makes perfect.

    Thursday, August 13th 2015

      Agree about listening to the natural language, but anyway the pronunciation must be clear. I understand another teachers from EngVid very well.

      Thursday, August 13th 2015

        Jade is British, the others are largely from Canada. British pronunciation is different, which takes time to get used to. Believe me, I understand every single word Jade utters. I used to experience the same problem when listening to British speakers. I recommend watching awesome British comedy series such as Little Britain or The Catherine Tate Show. :)

        Thursday, August 13th 2015

          Maybe you are right, David. Thank you. I’ll try to listen to British speakers much more, because now I focus on mainly American English.

          Thursday, August 13th 2015

Very useful. Thanks, Jade :-)

Thursday, August 13th 2015

Great lesson! Thank you, Jade :)

Thursday, August 13th 2015

    You know, Mai Anh June, sometimes it seems to me that she swallows her words. Very difficult to understand her.

Saturday, August 29th 2015

thanks so much.

Monday, August 31st 2015

Could anybody advise please if Jade’s pronounciation is Brithish or American? Unfortunately I can’t catch the difference between those two.
As for me – it is difficult to understand her speech, but I talk to Irishmen and their speach…leaves much more to be desired for understanding by people who speak another native languages.

Thursday, September 3rd 2015

Hi Jade,
You might be a good teacher but your accent is very strong. The problem is that you speak as everyone would be English People, but not you are talking for all the world and you need be conscient about it.

Sunday, September 13th 2015

Hi Jade,
What is the standard form of making CV.

Thank you so much for these advises
