This wasn’t one of the best performance. Many chattering, ohh ohhh ohhh…it looks like he doesn’t know the meaning of the words at all. Also, the speed of it almost made me fell asleep. The reading is not that good either.

Jon, I see you are sick and tired from your job. May I work there instead of you? Come on, employ me, I want to try my luck.

Mark

Go Jon! Thx for this interesting biography. I wrote down every word you said and I have three things I could not make out.
1. Striking out on his own he had various xxxx jobs… (xxxx = mini off, it does not make sense)
2)…odd jobs which included xxxx(taking?)swimming pools…
3) Do you really say firefighter? I understood forestfighter.
Thank you!!

jafcru12

    yes really, Jon said forestfighter instead of firefighter. He made a mistake , I think we all do) Let’s forgive him!

Hi, jon

this is really good web site and very good lesson

soso

Nice lesson. And for those who are complaining about some minor stutter he made, just SHUT UP! It was a great lesson (just too short in my opinion).

And John, don’t let a few stupid people put you down. You are a great teacher, just like all the other in EngVid.

Greetings from Brazil,

hasan

Ahmed

Thanks Ron, Great Job

Ahmed

That was a very nice lesson.
Here’s an advice. Could you be more ACTIVE Jon?

ashok08

Here’s an idea for teachers: before reading or listening to a famous person’s biography, you could encourage your students to write down a list of words or expressions referring to things they know about that person.During the reading/listening task, they have to tick those words which are in their list and appear in the document as well.

alsaihatihassan

Hy Jon.Thank you for good lessons. I want to ask you what means (write as i hear) various minial jobs, minial? excuse my mistakes :D

ladriana

    The word you hear is menial. A “menial job” is low-paid service work, like a cleaner or a restaurant server. It also has a bit of a derogatory meaning — if you call it a “menial job” rather than a “service job” or whatever, it means you don’t like it, or you don’t think it’s a good job.
