Dear colleagues and teachers,
I want to get you information about how works this site? I registered before 3 days I decided to start beginning level but I don’t understand how the lessons are serial as I have seen in one page including the lessons of 3 levels also I didn’t see any teacher responsible specific part or level? I am looking forward your kind feedback.

    Welcome to engVid, Hawo Ali!

    Use the English Lesson Finder in the sidebar on this page to sort lessons by level, teacher, or topic. Some lessons are part of a series (if they are, the teacher will say so in the video), but most stand on their own. On each lesson page, right after the video there is a list of related lessons.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Emma! Interesting and very useful lesson. Actually I’m reviewing my resume (once again) so this lesson is really for me. I’v been working many years in IT in many differents jobs at different companies using many technologies. It’s hard for me to summarize my experience in a few pages but I agree that nobody reads a resume of more than 2 or 3 pages.

Very useful for me. We have different kind of system in Transdniestria. In Moldova the system is something like this, but they call Resume as CV and they don’t ask you to create a cover letter.
In Transdniestria most of employers have their forms of resumes,that contain only information that employer wants to know about you, in most cases:1)personal information; 2) education 3)work experience- every previous employer but without responsibilities 4) military service; but in one bank I met 2 pages of psychological questions in a resume blank. They don’t need cover letters because in case they are interested in you- you will be invited for an interview, in some situations- to pass a test, and then- an interview. So in the interview they will see if you fit to the position. Sometimes a man wants to get a job in one position, but employer can decide that it would be better if the person gets another role.

Thank you you are gentle😉😉😉😉

    Hello. You are right

    Tuesday, July 31st 2018

Good lesson. I would like to work in the USA.

Monday, July 9th 2018

It would be out of context but I have wanted to ask what the word “into” stand for in these sentences:- ” he’s into surfing” and ” he is just not that into you”.
Please, may you explain that in a separate lesson or in a replay? thanks

Monday, July 9th 2018

    That’s a great idea for a lesson!

    If you’re “into” something, you’re really interested in it or passionate about it. Someone who is “into surfing” probably has a surfboard and goes on vacation to great surfing spots. If someone’s “not that into you”, they aren’t as interested in you as you are in them (in a romantic sense).

    Tuesday, July 10th 2018

      Thank you a lot, I really appreciate your response. your answer was very adequate and hitting the bullseye but I hope you would forgive my insistence if I may ask a further question, how does “into” act in a sentence?
