I have been reading the “power verb resource page” at the first instance and it has been a reading very completed and full of power verbs like to foster, to debug, to streamline, to portray, to bolster, to lobby, to spearhead, to appraise, to fundraise, to retrieve and to draft which are new for me although I had seen some of them sometimes but not many times. It’s a good choice to use them in resumes and interviews but it’s necessary to study them deeply, then to assure you’re using it correctly, as you has explained us. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, it has been a great lesson to achieve our goals and targets.

Sunday, June 18th 2017

    Sorry, “… you have explained us…” would be the right word for this present perfect tense.

    Sunday, June 18th 2017

Just to thank you not just for this video, but for all! This one was a fantastic one and I often use your videos as a resource for my classes.

I mainly teach Aviation and Technical English in Spain but every now and then I have to force students “to think outside the box” and stimulate thinking. Here in Spain students have a lot of problems w/ prepositions… more than LatAm students.

I truly appreciate your hard work.

Wednesday, October 25th 2017

Thanks a lot Emma for this lesson. I have been watching your videos on Youtube for a while.I have a question: You said that if the job is current we can use the verb in Present tense, but you used “handles”. Should we use it that way or it was a mistake? I normally write ‘handle” but now I am confused…
