Hi dear Emma, I have been carrying on your studies since when I was in my homeland, I migrated to Canada 9 months ago and i am resided in Toronto right now. Toronto is one of the terrible cities that I know for getting a job. Thank you for teaching us. I wish to see you one day in this big city.

Omid

    Welcome to Toronto! I’m sorry you’re having trouble finding a job, it’s pretty difficult here right now. One upside: in a big city there’s lots of stuff to do for free!

    engVid Moderator

A benefit of studying English on engvid.com that is we can study every time and everywhere. A drawback of this one is we don’t know how to practice these knowledge without negative speaker. Thank Emma for your lesson!

Lecongdanh

Thanks you Emme! :)

Astric

Very useful lesson, Emma! It was the first time I see you on engvid.com, but Sure not will be the last. Greetings from México!

henri

Hi everyone! This is my first time when i’m writting here and it’s very exciting for me!!!))) Well, that’s because in my poinion my English skill is not good enought and I need to learn a lot of things!!)) However, I’d like to say to Emma: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR WHAT YOU DO ON ENGVID.COM!!!!)))) Your lessons is always useful and interesting. I hope someday I will pass IELTS or TOFIL or something like that, with your great help!!)))

P.S.: also I’d like to say: It’s really cool that you like STAR WARS and comics!!!)))) I like them too)))

Efim Golovin

    helo sir,
    i have a suggestion for you, that if you ever want to clear the IELTS or TOFEL* exam, then you should stop using contractions in your sentences. try to avoid these contractions as much as you can. For instance, can’t, don’t, won’t, etc.
    because, this will help you alot in passing out these tests.
    have a nice day. :)

    sharnjeet

      I understood, thank You!)))

      Efim Golovin

    hahah you are very funny))))

    TuTu Shahzade

*opinion
*enough

Sorry)))

Efim Golovin

Thank you Emma for this awesome lesson!There are many advantages, but also have many disadvantages where I live.
By the way, thanks for remind us about correct pronunciation of the word “criticism”.

Wellington Porto Brito

    i can say english depends on pronunciation for being understandable!!!!!

    haidara

Thanks Emma for this lesson!

EduRJ2015

Hello Emma ,
Lack of vocabulary is a huge drawback for those who want to speak a foreing language . A frequent cristisism I have in mind is that traditional english courses often teach not enough synonyms . This leads to many negative aspects in conversation as stumbling over words and monotonous speeches . Your lesson ,Emma , makes a real benefit , here is the ultimate argument in favour of watching Engvid’s vidéos .
Thanks Emma and carry on .

tsamp

    wow,you did a great job

9/10 I miss the point on the fifth, I thought that I have to use “an argument in favour about” instead “in favour of”. Well this are the advantages and disadvantages of learning English so late, oh if I had be more focus in the high school ….!

Jorge Pedroso

I have good reasons to study and have learned a lot with you. About the end of the words that end in (ism)I had heard some people saying and I got surprised about the sound, beacause in Brazil words ended in (ismo)sounds like (izmu): Example : fanatísmo
Not much different of english.
