Great advice Jade, it’s good to see you made a video. By the way, you look amazing.

About Dobby, he must be really sensitive Elf and on top of all that he has to deal with all that abuse and trauma…

Poor guy, maybe one day he will meet a female house Elf named Debby.. who might show him that he is worth more than what he believes.

My favorite part of this lesson, was watching you come to realize that in a way he is watching himself from the outside. Very interesting…

I hope you will make more videos, more often… when you have the time.

Jade, your class regarding using submissive language while talking with others is very beneficial for me where I’m discharging my duties right now. So I’m obliged to you by your lesson. The most interesting thing for me today is to watch Harry Potter movie to learn submissive language how it is being used in that movie. Thank you very much and love British accent.
