Wednesday, March 15th 2017

Thank you for your useful lesson.

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Thanks Gill for the nice lesson. This lesson will backup me in studying English and showed me backlog in my knowledge. But I have backbone to go forward rather than backward.

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    Hi! Nice to meet you. May I ask you about the background for your picture profile?
    And I don’t think “backup” can be used as a verb.
    Does anybody know?
    Bye.

    Thursday, March 16th 2017

      Dear Nataanna, you asked about my profile name. As a matter of fact I removed 453, because I thought it was an extra suffix. I feel it’s better now, isn’t it?

      Friday, March 17th 2017

        Dear nkh! It’s up to you. I hope I’ll recognize you if you change your profile completely (due to your manner of commenting). It might be challenging; how do you think?

        Sunday, March 19th 2017

          No, I will never change my profile completely. If I want to do this, I’ll let you know. UNDOUBTEDLY 🙃

          Sunday, March 19th 2017

          Sorry, I tried to say a joke. Not successfully. My words should be taken backwards. Have a nice day.

          Sunday, March 19th 2017

      As a verb, it’s “back (someone/something) up”, and it has a few meanings. For example:

      – Remember to back up (make a copy of) important computer files.
      – The paper’s conclusions weren’t backed up (supported) by the data.
      – The truck makes a beeping sound as it backs up (drives backwards).

      Friday, March 17th 2017

        Thank you very much for the explanation. It was backed up with examples; they helped me a lot.
        I thought we had to use “with the data or by the person”. But it sounds better “by the data”. It confused me.
        Thank you one more time.

        Sunday, March 19th 2017

          You’re welcome! Glad I could help.

          Monday, March 20th 2017

        Hahaha It isn’t the 1st of April;)

        Sunday, March 19th 2017

    Thank you my dear teacher for helping us

    Wednesday, July 12th 2017

Excellent lesson, very useful, I like to learn compound words because they are very important and have a completely different meaning, thanks Gill greetings for you from Venezuela

Thursday, March 16th 2017

You’re awesome
Useful lesson
Thanks

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Nice and interesting video, thank you Gill.

Thursday, March 16th 2017

It is really interesting lesson but I don’t understand the meaning of the last word :backwards. Anyway,thank you so much !!!

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    hi Quynh Anh — backwards means ‘in reverse’, like walking backwards instead of forwards, or rewinding a video.

    Sunday, April 9th 2017

      Yeah,now i understand it. Thanks again :))

      Tuesday, April 11th 2017

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Many thanks Gill.
Great lesson!

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Great lesson
Thanks

Thursday, March 16th 2017

I really liked the word “backtrack”. I didn’t have to backtrack on this video before the quiz. Here in Colombia it might be a backlash if the government does not pay attention to significant issues around the country.
Really interesting point with the word “backside”, for us non native speakers.
Hopefully, i’ll backpack the world soon!!!
Thanks!

Thursday, March 16th 2017

how can we usually use back in a routine life. Can er say “She had a problem in her backbone last year.”

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    hi — ‘backbone’ in a literal sense is mostly used in a medical context. If a person has back problems you would say ‘back problems’, ‘back pain’, ‘a bad back’, etc. The backbone is literally made of bone — the vertebrae. I hope this helps!

    Sunday, April 9th 2017

Please make a video about Nowruz.

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll add it to the list of requests, and we’ll see if a teacher wants to do a lesson on it.

    Friday, March 17th 2017

What does Ty mean?

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    Hello friends! I’ve already forgotten about my holiday.
    The only thing remains – the backlog. So pity.
    Thank you Mrs. Jill for the lesson.

    Thursday, March 16th 2017

      Hi nataanna,
      tell us something about your holidays! Did you have a backpack? :)

      Friday, March 17th 2017

        Hi byte! No, I didn’t. But I had got a husband to back up me. And he had a backpack!
        My vacation is over, unfortunately. I want the time to go backwards.

        Sunday, March 19th 2017

    it means thank you

    Thursday, March 16th 2017

Hello Gill. Thank you a lot. As a old hand teacher, it was great. Good luck in your whole life.

NEW YEAR IS SO NEAR….🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉

Thursday, March 16th 2017

NOROUZ;coming soon🌺👌

I’m so so so happy…😄

Thursday, March 16th 2017

    My congratulations! When it be? What’s the background of it? Do you have presents for the holiday? How do you celebrate it?
    See you.

    Thursday, March 16th 2017

      Hello Nataanna and SKIKDA, both dear friends. Thank you for your kindness.
      Yes, I’m so happy. Because NOROUZ;Iranians’ New year is one of our best times, like Christmas.
      NOROUZ is an ancient ceremony. It returns to Achaemenid Empire; maybe about 3000 years ago.
      Actually we call the period of our new year’s holiday , NOROUZ . Its based on our culture. We have some interesting tradition in this time. For example we set Haft_seen tabletop, then all of the members of family sit around it and wait to change year. Haft_seen is a tabletop( sofreh) that includes somethings that are signs of health, merry year, wealth,etc.
      In NOROUZ we visit our relatives and travel. Totally, it’s so enjoyable.

      Friday, March 17th 2017

        And it starts from new year’s first day and it ends in New year 13th. Actually it takes 13 days.
        Now I want to say thank you for your help. Your country is so beautiful, while it hasn’t many historical places but it worths to visit. Thank you again.

        Friday, March 17th 2017

        I correct my mistakes;it’s based on…
        We have some interesting traditions…

        Friday, March 17th 2017

          I forgot to say that in NOROUZ, olders give youngers money as handsel or present.

          Friday, March 17th 2017

          I used wrong words:
          The old give the young money as handsel or present. And we buy new clothes too. It’s so important and enjoyable to buy new clothes for Bahar(or spring).

          Saturday, March 18th 2017

Friday, March 17th 2017

Backing, background, backtrack and backup maybe generate some doubts if you don’t have your concepts very clear, but there aren’t any problems with the teacher Gill’s explanations, it has been a very interesting class as always. Sometimes backing/background and backtrack/backup are ambiguous if you don’t have any experience with these words, I have listened to them in some situations and I have doubted with their meanings but here on this lesson, I don’t hesitate anymore. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, a very interesting lesson.

Friday, March 17th 2017
