Yeah, strange and freaky story. The name of this video is absolutely right. I think people don´t know about the history of St Valentine´s day when they´re buying presents. Otherwise….it wouldn´t be so romantic XD
Thanks Ronnie, and happy Valentine´s day to all EngVid teachers and students!!

    Hello SKIKDA. How’s every thing going?? I miss our group. I miss our conversations, me, you, Nataanna, and other people who attend in our group. And I also miss our competition.In these days I’ve not been visiting the website. What about you???

    Profile photo of nkh nkh

      Recently, the website is not as interesting as before for me. Everything is so NORMAL and USUAL in the web.

Thank you Ronnie:)
As you may know, in Japan, girls give guys chocolates. Why does it have to be chocolates? I don’t get it. Then just a month later march 14, guys give cookies or something back to girls, the day called white day. I wonder other countries have white day. I feel it’s weird custom.

Profile photo of juneriver juneriver

    Hi! About White Day… We’ve got such one in Russia, but it’s called International Women’s Day and it’s celebrated on march 8. The most popular present of this day is a bouquet of flowers, then chocolates, then jewelry… Weird, tasty and beautiful, isn’t?

    Profile photo of Max Druck Max Druck

      Thank you for the reply and I’m sorry about my too late reply.
      Giving flowers is so romantic! A person who received them must be happy!
      Thank you for the information 😀

      Profile photo of juneriver juneriver

    Hi juneriver, we Armenians like Russians celebrate the International Woman’s Day on March 8; but lucky we to have a month of celebrations, not just a day because it lasts up to April 7. Of course, it doesn’t mean that boys should give presents each day (economics should be economical), but there’re lots of fests, concerts; besides the shops gives discounts and overall, we have spring mood and are very festive. And thank you for informing us about the white day!

    Profile photo of StellaPoghosyan StellaPoghosyan

      Hi Stella! Thank you for informing about your country! And sorry about my too late reply 😥
      Long lasting festive mood is nice! We don’t have such events here. It’s really good to know about your country because we don’t hear about Armenia that often. Thank you so much for telling me!

      Profile photo of juneriver juneriver

Very good explanation, Ronnie (and very funny too, haha)! Here in Brazil, we celebrate our Valentine’s Day in June 12th and in portuguese it is called “Dia dos Namorados”.

what ‘s the relation between your lion costume and the topic of this lesson ronnie ?

Profile photo of SKIKDA SKIKDA

    None :D
    That’s why she wear it, because Valentine’s Day is based on a story that has everything but romance

Nice to know that not everyone goes crazy about days like Valentine’s Day. I like that attitude. I’ve always found that strange that I have to proof my love to sb. just on February 14-th.

Dear nice lion Ronnie,

Thanks Ronnie! Great lesson. Unfortunately, in Brazil Valentine’s day is not so relevant, but I’m glad to know about the story.

Hello every one. I want to suggest something. In these days, engvid is not so exiting and interesting. I like to put a topic and make you talk about it. But I don’t know what a topic is more interesting. So if you’re agree, recommend a funny topic. Let’s make here a better place like a few days ago.

Profile photo of nkh nkh

    Hello. Cool ! It also will help us to improve our writing skll .I have a topic in my mind . If you are interested in knowing it please let me know !

    Profile photo of Soei Soei

      skill

      Profile photo of Soei Soei

        It’s cool. I agree with this topic.
        So, please let us know, in wich subjects are you skillful? How did you achieve this skill???

        Profile photo of nkh nkh

          Are you skillful in your teaching??? Are your students satisfied with your method???

          Profile photo of nkh nkh

          I wrote Skill again since I wanted to correct my mistake .

          Profile photo of Soei Soei

          Pay attention please I said US . Yes I am. But no one knows everything. I wanted you to talk about your own funny childhood experiences .And also me.

          Profile photo of Soei Soei

          Oh that’s right. At first, I didn’t understand at all. Sorry, if I made you upset or even angry. I though you suggested skill as a topic, so I felt it’s better to ask you about your skills and experiences in your teaching. Beg pardon again.

          😶😔

          Profile photo of nkh nkh

          I remember ,when I was 8 years old , my mother told me to buy some bread on my way to home. I forgot completely, and I bought some ice creams for my classmates and myself! After getting home ……

          Profile photo of Soei Soei

          I can imagine what happened next. 😊
          But my stories are stranger.
          For example when I was just eight, I went to our neighbors house and changed their bills with together!!! But I did it for two times; so no one could realize
          (I)bothered them!!!

          Profile photo of nkh nkh

          But now, I’m so quiet. In school and english class, I say and do nothing. In these days I prefer be quiet and calm.

          Profile photo of nkh nkh

          How nice ! One day I found a coin in my friend’s father’s store ! I took it and bought some sweets from the same store and had a lot of fun that day ! Imagine ! I’m talking about more than 40 years ago !

          Profile photo of Soei Soei

          Hi, everyone! I`ll be back (do you remember “The Terminator” with Arni?). And I`m back at the moment.
          I had nice trip, but it`s over. My husband promised me flowers blossoming on Valentain`s day in Greece. So, I`ve got all flowers of Greece this year.
          The most funny impression about Greece this time: a lot of FAT stray dogs and cats on streets.
          One day we were strolling along the intersection and the police car was going down the street and beeping (I don`t know if I`m correct to write like this). One of the dogs started barking imitating the police`s siren, another one joined the song. The car had gone away, but the dogs continued singing. Everyone were laughing and applauding to the animals.The dogs looked smiling!!!
          So, I unexpectedly attended opera that day!
          See you!

          Hello Nataanna. It’s me, nkh.453.
          I really miss you. It’s unbelievable, but it’s true. I’ve never seen you and I really don’t know who you are, but at least I know you here as a GREAT member.
          I wanted to say to you, after you left the website for a short time, SKIKDA and I left our group too. In these days I’ve not been visiting the website.
          Have a nice trip and please come back soon.☺

Oh Ronny…. I m your huge fan lols. I have started watching this channel since i first watched your video. I need help from Engvid team to please help us in Linguistics and phonetics (IPA) there are many topics to talk about. I can provide you many topics it will be very useful for Foreign learners to be good in accent and pronunciation by phonetics and by linguistics will know the actual purposes of language and its variation.
