St Patrick’s day is arriving. The brazilians also celebrate this date .

Friday, March 14th 2014

    It’s not a public holiday or a traditional celebration in Brazil.
    Some people just throw private parties called St. Patrick’s Day.

    Thanks, Ronnie. Have fun!!

    Saturday, March 15th 2014

    Sorry, but I don’t think we Brazilians celebrate St.Patrick’s Day…Not in the way Ronnie says it’s celebrated in some places, at least…

    Monday, March 17th 2014

    St Patrick’s day pass

    Sunday, March 23rd 2014

    I agree with Janilza. We do have the lent here in Brazil, but until I finished my English Course, I had never heard anything about St. Patrick’s Day.
    I can’t jugde because I don’t know if only in São Paulo it isn’t a holiday…

    Sunday, March 23rd 2014

I have a question about one word. Is the same “holiday” and “public holiday”. What is the diference between them??

Thank you!!

Friday, March 14th 2014

    I am not sure, but I think public holiday is a offical state holiday

    Monday, May 5th 2014

Do we commemorate? I have never heard about it… Well, people just want to have an excuse to get drunk.

Friday, March 14th 2014

As a matter of fact, in Brazil, we don’t use to celebrate St. Patrick days, except some english schools in order to show the english language culture, but, in my opinion is non-sense celebrate it here, just to have fun. By the way… it was a great lesson!

Thank you Ronnie!

Tuesday, March 18th 2014

Very cool holiday, 9/9 correct. I like so much this beer (Guinness)

Tuesday, March 18th 2014

Dear Ronnie. To my surprise I see on the whiteboard behind you ‘hoilday’ instead of holiday. I am not Irish, but I don’t believe that that is the Irish pronunciation of holiday :D Nevertheless, I love your videos

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

If I could I would like to exchange our holiday carnival by the Irish holiday St. Patrick’s Day, so we would lose only one day instead of 5 working days, drinking and doing stupid things …

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

That’s great!

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

it´ld be great to live a St. Patrick´s day!

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

I got 100 but pass two questions that I did not remember.

Thursday, March 20th 2014

Which sentence is correct?
1-you should set quitly and respect
2-you should set quitly and respectly

Friday, March 21st 2014

    Both sentences are grammatically incorrect: set what? quietly (not quitly), respectfully (not respectly, respect).

    “set” is a transitive verb which must be accompanied by a direct object (noun) and always followed by an adverb or preposition.

    You should set a cremation urn down quietly and respectfully.

    Tuesday, August 5th 2014

Hello Ronnie, There’s always been a doubt
poppin in my mind, i has nothing to wiht this lesson, but i think that many brazilians have
doubts about it: what is the difference between make/ask questions?

Friday, March 21st 2014

Hello, Ms.Ronnie. Is that your new hair style or just… Cos-play Ms.Ronnie for a while?

Friday, March 21st 2014

Hello,Ronnie. I always look forward to your lessons.
I want to ask you something.
I couldn’t understand the meaning of the phrase ‘fall smack-dab’.
Please teach me about it.

Sunday, March 23rd 2014

Monday, March 2nd 2015

My fellow students at elementary school told me long ago that if a person did not wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, then that person would get pinched by a fellow student at school.

Wednesday, May 6th 2015

To Abanob2015 Immature people who do not like to follow rules are always looking for an excuse to not follow the rules even during Lent.

These people do not realize that the purpose of making a sacrifice is to prove you love religious virtue more than your luxury habit. Therefore it is easy to give up your luxury.

Wednesday, May 6th 2015

I`ve got 100%.

Monday, May 11th 2015
