    Hi Vitalii

    it looks great!

    Tuesday, January 24th 2017

      Hi, Lemarvillois! Thanks! It is Carpathians mountains in the West Ukraine. Good place for tourism. I like it. Welcome!

      Tuesday, January 24th 2017

        Interesting video lesson Gill. Making plans/arrangements in English is not that easy,especially for beginners. Your lesson was clear and to the point.

        Many thanks.

        Looks great! In Poland we have a another piece of Carpathians. Do you have mountain huts in Ukraine Mountain. It’s near the Poland but I do not know Ukrainian language and this mountain are unknown form me and my friends.

        Wednesday, February 1st 2017

          Hi, Rafal! Sometimes we found huts, but it were good to hide from rain or storm, not for long staying. Cowboys usually build it in the mountain when they pasture sheeps for all summer. Btw I never visited the Poland part of Carpathians. And often met tourists from Poland in the Ukrainian one.

Thank you Gill to teach the good English manner to have an appointment with a friend : It’s best to discuss the options gradually…..

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Many thanks Gill

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Hallo Gill,

Ronnie said in one video of hers, that we don´t use “meet” but “see”, when we want to plan to spent the time with our firends. Meet is used only for the first time, said Ronnie Is is true ?

Thanks,
Adriana

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

    Hi adrijana — thanks for your question. I think it depends a lot on the context. There are also differences between British English, American English, Canadian English, etc :-)

    Monday, January 30th 2017

      Hi Gill, does it mean, you are both right ?

      Monday, January 30th 2017

Thanks Gill, this lesson was great..

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Thanks Gill!!!Nice lesson as usual ;)

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Hello Gill. It was good. Thanks and nice teaching.
But frankly I liked the last video more than this one. I think it was not as interesting as the last one. I’m just saying it was not so interesting, not useful. This video can be very effective in our life, specially if we have a friend who speak in english. What do you think guys?

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

    Hello nkh.543.
    Well, personally, i Iove every single lesson created by Gill at the same way.
    Every time, i find something important that i don’t know inside her lessons.
    Thanks so so so much Gill. ;-)

    Tuesday, January 24th 2017

    Hi, nkh453! I quite disagree with you about the lesson. It wasn’t just exceptionally useful, but merry as well. And Jill, I like her cunning and kind smile!
    It’s great pleasure to listen to her amazing pronunciation of Londoner…
    I think you raise this controversial opinion just to make conversation burst.
    Am I right? See you.

    Tuesday, January 24th 2017

      Dear Natanna, I think we are here to improve our english,so beside these training videos we should communicate with together as we can. As you know it helps us to be better in speaking, writing,etc. And I’m not willing to bother anyone by my comments, if I put a question in my comments or say a different thing, I just wanna make guys to communicate more. That’s it. Thanks for reading my opinion.

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

        Good day, nkh453. Than you for reply. I always read you comments. They are interesting and you speak good English.
        I didn’t want to hurt your feelings at all. Sorry, if I did.
        Gill is my favorite teacher though I like the other ones. Each of them has so different personality and the way of teaching. But I so appreciate the pronunciation that I vote (l don’t sure of correct usage of the word) for Gill most of all. And do you have any preferences?

        Wednesday, January 25th 2017

          No, I’m not upset at all. Don’t be sorry, you did not hurt my feelings, that’s what I want in engvid: communicate with together as it’s possibl.

          Wednesday, January 25th 2017

        Personally, I think Gill is an amazing teacher!!I always looking forward to her next lesson.

        Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      yes

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thanks Gill
This lesson was great..

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

good lesson help us to improve our english language with native speakers but unfortuantely i haven’t a native speaker like a freind , i hope soon i will have one. thank you gill.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Hello Gill! Thanks for teaching us how to arrange meetings with friends, that will be useful.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Thank you teacher.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Good website thanks for this

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Thank’s Gill
Usefull lesson

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Thanks

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Great explanation though I have listened to it twice because I failed the question about making arrangements, starting gradually to find the free time to meet a friend is the right answer but I thought it was about telling your friend all the details before he or she could speak his or her ideas. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, a very useful lesson, overall with the word “foyer”, the first time I see it and which means “hall”.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Thank’s Gill
I appreciate your effort so much…

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

I wish the video had been released some time ago!
I’ve made an acquaintance a few gays recently. And as usual fell short of words while making arrangements. Now I know how to put it right. Thank you , Jill.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

    Better late than never, nataanna. Now, we have the language tools to make arragentments to meet a friend.

    Let me share with you an informal expression that helps to conffirm arrangements:

    Peter: Are we still on for a coffee?
    Alice: Sure, today around 4, right?
    Peter: Okay, see you then.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Hi, Regino! Thank you for advice. I hope it’ll come in handy soon as I’m interested in new English speaking friends. You wrote great and exact words about EngVid in your profile. I quite agree with you. See you.

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Guys*, sorry a lot……
I misspelled the word

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

thanks Gill, you are great!

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

    Good for you Pati! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Paty I took the liberty of reading and making some comments on your EngVid profile paragraph. Hope you do not mind, my appologies.

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      Hi, I’m Colombian. I currently (actualmente/en este momento) live in the capital, Bogota City.

      I like the English language; I always try to learn something new about this beautiful language. I’m learning by myself.

      I am still single, although I am 43 years old. I would like to be engaged with a faithful man / I would like to live with a faithful man on my side. For the meantime (mientras tanto/por el momento), I just want to be happy. That is why, I (try to) smile, do sports, and enjoy watching films every day.

      I think I would have been an excellent film critic (creo/pienso que habría sido una excelente critica de cine); I wish my dream had come true (ojalá mi sueño se hubiera hecho realidad), but the fact is that (el hecho es que…) I am just a professional in marketing and advertising.

      Wednesday, January 25th 2017

        . . . it is also possible to use the expression “In the meantime,…” instead of “For the meantime,…”.

        Good luck on your English Pati!

        Bye for now.

        Saturday, January 28th 2017

          Thank you, Regino…..
          You are so kind!
          Have good night.

          Saturday, January 28th 2017

          Don’t mention it. Have a great week Pati.

          See your around!

          Sunday, January 29th 2017

Thank you so much. These lessons help me to speak English well.

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

I Got 60 ! I so sad for it ….I want to learn english but it’s very hard for me …I read scrooge story today and hope my english be better than Now .

Wednesday, January 25th 2017

    Hello dear compatriot. You mentioned you are willing to improve your english, and it seems you try hard to get your goal. So If you won’t be upset, I like to help you.
    I found some mistakes in your top comment.
    First:according to the related grammar, you must say or type I’m so sad not I so sad.
    Second:if I don’t make a mistake, in the last part of your comment, you wanted to say I hope my english be better from now on. But you typed than now. From now on means after the present moment. I hope you can understand my words. Good luck🙂

    Wednesday, January 25th 2017

      thank you …I Got it ….I try to learn more ..but that need time .

      Thursday, January 26th 2017

Wednesday, January 25th 2017

Thank you Gill!

Wednesday, January 25th 2017

I failed the question about making arrangements because I chose the answer in a subjective way. The failure helped me learn more carefully. I learned not only language but also daily life through the lesson.
Thank you so much.

Friday, February 24th 2017

Thank you Gill, you’re actually fantastic. Your accent is very beautiful and your pronunciation is very clear too. Particularly, it’s easy to understand a foreign language when the teacher speaks not necessary slowly, but clearly.

First lesson with you Gill. I think you have wonderful accent. Thanks

Saturday, March 11th 2017

Hello Gill,
Thanks for your video, I got 10 of 10.
I know meeting friends is a good idea for improving the language. But I can’t make friends and I’m so shy. And my language is not very good the people in here are fluent and they don’t want to spend their time with me because I can’t speak English very well. Some people are nice but I think I’m boring for them.
What should I do?

Wednesday, March 15th 2017

Thanks a lot for your free English lesson , you re great

Sunday, March 19th 2017

Friday, April 28th 2017

Hello Gill!

Thank you very much for one more nice lesson. You are one of my favourite Engvid teachers, and I am really glad because you have joined the staff.

Unfortunately, I don’t have foreign friends to have a physical meeting, but I can use those expressions you have just thought us to arrange virtual appoitments on Skype since I’ve got many Engvid pen pals. I agree with with you: talking to foreigners in English is one of the best ways to improve our English. Besides, it is quite amusing!

Looking forward to seeing you again!

Tuesday, May 2nd 2017

Really good lesson Gill!

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

Great lesson!

Wednesday, May 24th 2017

Hi Gill, can you please give me some advice on what to listen to improve my understanding of listening to English? Many thanks

Monday, June 26th 2017
