    Hello engvid and dear friends ; SKIKDA, Nataanna, kotoz, struggle for eng,etc. I got back again. You may know, I’ve not been here for a period of time. I wasn’t going to come back. But now I feel, i really need to be here for at least two reasons:
    First, since I’ve been here and found new people, I feel better and I’m more confident. Talking with good buddies, give me an unbelievable feeling.
    Second, I can see easily development in my speaking skill. Therefore I will continue being here.
    Few days ago was Iranians’ New Year
    But unfortunately I had no a normal New year. Because of my mother’s disease, I had to disregard all of my entertainment and even studying lessons. Thank God, now she is healthy and good. That’s why I decided to come back here.
    I want to appreciate Nataanna, SKIKDA and others for their sympathy and great comments. Today I checked your comments. Thank you for your attention.
    Dear Emma, as usual I really enjoyed your teaching. Thank you a lot.

    Tuesday, April 11th 2017

Monday, April 10th 2017

Really a very interesting topic if you want to go up with your English level, like a race, you prepare your periods of training, warm up, read and cool down, or may be Know, Want to know, and Learned. I have to review another time the lesson to set up my acknowledge of this KWL method and be sure I have understood it all. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, it has been a very useful class.

Monday, April 10th 2017

Thank you for the pleasantness of listening to your lessons.

Monday, April 10th 2017

An excellent technique to become a better reader.

Monday, April 10th 2017

super nice lesson, thank you

Monday, April 10th 2017

Our lovely teacher has come up with a good technique which I’m quite sure we can apply it to everything we read and get the most of what we read because this technique motivates memory and organizes information in it. What makes Emma different is the way of how she pronounces. With her silvery voice, I enjoy listening to all what she says. We are lucky to have such this great teacher.

Monday, April 10th 2017

Thank you for this lesson!
But I have a problem with reading fiction book – such a difficult language there! What will you advise me?

Monday, April 10th 2017

Hi. I got 10/10 thx for lesson

Monday, April 10th 2017

I started to learn Englishs by this website, but I’m loving all explanation, everything much simply.

Monday, April 10th 2017

Emma I liked so much this lesson! It will help me when reading! Now I know I have to look for subjects that I like and love to learn or know better. Thanks a lot Emma. You very kind!

Monday, April 10th 2017

It was a great lesson please keep it up.

Monday, April 10th 2017

Thank you Emma for the great lesson.
I love reading. I don’t read a lot though.
The method you taught is really interesting and will make my reading time more fun. I think I can use this method for not only reading English books but also other languages! What a nice lesson!
Thank you and until next time :D

Monday, April 10th 2017

thank you… i got 90 out of 100

Monday, April 10th 2017

Thank you for the video! It will help me from now on.

Monday, April 10th 2017

Thank you, Emma. It does really help.
Usually, before reading a book, I’ll start getting information about the subject, the author and others’ opinions on it. And I often highlight when I find anything interesting while reading the book. Should I use a notebook to record all the great things I learn from it? I know I should. But sometimes I’m just too lazy to do it.;)

How about you guys? What is your reading style before you watch this video?

Monday, April 10th 2017

    I also used to highlight the most important and interesting lines while reading, sometimes I write them down, but for the warm up I’m afraid here comes my laziness :D
    Currently, I’m reading a novel called ” And the Mountains Echoed”, what about you guys?

    Tuesday, April 11th 2017

      Nice to meet you, Rahaf. I would rather use this method for EngVid lessons. I always think about every new lesson before watching it. Sometimes I notice the class at work, where I have no time to study. So, I have much time for my imagination by the time I fulfill it. That’s why it’s the “warm up” or “know”. The listening to the lesson itself is “running” or “want to know”. And lastly, the quiz is “cool down” or “learning”.
      The next time I’m going to make a list of suggestions about the lesson, then I’ll compare it if I guessed correctly. It will be funny. Join me.
      Thank you, Emma, for the new “game”. Studying becomes little boring, I need smth to encourage myself….

      Tuesday, April 11th 2017

    I think this KWL method isn’t difficult to use by itself, but the problem would be to afford with a difficult topic or subject to develop the same method, e.g. if you read a vocabulary with new and strange words, you will think that it will be difficult to remember and learn how to use these words in the future conversations or communications. I would rather learn to my own mistakes because it’s secure I would have them, whatever the question that I find, I would try to keep it up in my mind. It also depends on your affinity to the topic, if you like it, you will learn easier than if you don’t like it.

    Wednesday, April 12th 2017

Thankyou.It was interesting

Tuesday, April 11th 2017

Very useful method. Im going to use the KWL method for what i read. Thank you very much!
