Political vocabulary and phrases are very difficult for me to understand (for example : “cut the crime rate” ). Through this lesson, I will be able to get important words to read newspaper. Thank you so much.

Yutaka Endo

    I think, it’s like cut the cost. (reduce the cost).

    camalote

      Political jargon is not that easy to understand, apart from being too formal.

      However, we as learners of English should be familiar enough with it in order to understand current news and keep well-informed.

      Useful video-lesson on collocations Benjamin!

      Have an interesting week.

      Regino

    i think it’s mean “reduce amount of crime make a peaceful place to live”. i hope it helps you well.

There is a word missing in the second sentence : I’m going “to”_____

melkidi

Thank you Bejamin. When are you going to launch you in politic? I am the one who I vote for you!

I have a proposal for you: All the people should understand English! What do you think about it?
Thank you for your answer.
Best regards from Romania.

alinamohamed

    Hi AlinaMohamed, I absolutely agree with you. English should be understood and spoken by most people; nowadays is practically a must, isn´t it?

    Have a nice week Alina!

I am a Taiwanese English teacher.
(我是一個台灣的英文老師)

The reason why my English is so good in comparsion with most of my fellow Taiwanese is that I have been constantly learning and practicing English.
(我英文能力之所以比其他台灣大多數同胞來得強是因為我不間斷地學習與練習英文)

Hopefully the average Emglish ability level for Taiwanese can improve a lot in the very near future.
(希望台灣的平均英語實力能在不久的將來大大地進步)

I have finished watching this video completely.
(我已經完整地看完了這個影片)

This video is awesome!!!!
(這個影片棒呆了!!!)

It is bloody useful!!
(真是夭壽實用!!!)

Big thanks to the teacher and all the fellow students around the world.
(大大地感謝老師與所有其他國籍的學生)

Ray Hsu
