Thank my best teacher, and I have a question why did you spill a number in question ( 3,7 and 9) when it was over ten? why did not you writ a number?

Sunday, May 28th 2017

    SOM3A, it’s a general suggestion and shortcut you can use, but you don’t have to write in numbers all the time. It also depends what style your company prefers.Thanks for paying attention so well! I wish you all the best.

100%, thank you for your help

Monday, May 29th 2017

Hi Teacher, you deserve that big recognition; Great lesson, kind of advanced, but easy explained with all the basics, some of your co-workers avoid the basics or reference to past lessons that not help at the moment; One improve idea may you like to take or talk with the website administrator/owner is to re-make the old lessons, the bad think with this lessons is the sound, sound like was recorded inside a box, is kind of annoying comparing with the new lesson records, and don’t forget to delete the old versions.

Monday, May 29th 2017

    Eduardom49, thanks so much for your very kind and thoughtful comments. We are, in fact, re-recording some of our earlier videos. I hope you made progress with the essay part of the exam you had mentioned last time. May your improved English help you achieve your highest goals. My warm wishes to you, Eduardo.

“Nothing in life is so hard that you can’t make it easier by the way you take it”
The quote isn’t obviously mine, belongs to Ellen Glasgow

Nothing in life is so hard that you can’t make it easier by the way you teach it
That´s is my quote

Thank’s Rebecca

Monday, May 29th 2017

    Thank you kindly for these insightful comments, PacoBe. I totally agree with you and think you are quite remarkable, by the way! All the best, my friend.

    Tuesday, June 13th 2017

    Tuesday, June 13th 2017

No one likes YOU!

Monday, May 29th 2017

    Yurei78, I think you wanted to say:

    There’s no-one like you.
    No-one like you!

    In this case, if you add the “s” to the word “likes”, it means that no-one cares about you. I think you didn’t mean that, but if you did, then that’s fine too! I wish you all the best.

    Tuesday, June 13th 2017

Hi. Why don’t I need hyphens in “Seven Mile Bridge”?

Monday, May 29th 2017

Tuesday, June 6th 2017

the lessons was great

Tuesday, June 6th 2017

can anyone explain me question 3 7 and 9

Tuesday, June 6th 2017

    You are concerned because the answers are written in words, instead of numbers. Please see my reply to SOM3A above. Writing in numbers is a stylistic option, not a rule. All the best to you, xirin4u.com.

    Tuesday, June 13th 2017

It has been a review lesson about compound adjectives, a basic topic that it’s easy to fail or mistake it you forget the rule of dropping the “-s” and writing the hyphen, that it is also a very common error when you haven’t often practised them, it’s a normal situation to change compound adjective by other words in the sentences. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, without your advice and aid, it would be more complicated to learn English grammar, this video class has been very useful as always.

Wednesday, June 7th 2017

Friday, November 2nd 2018

Hi Rebecca, I just want to address your example sentence about compound adjectives which is ‘the conference was three days long.’ You changed it to, “it was a three-day conference.’ I was wondering if we could possibly include the word ‘long’ in the compound adjectives so we could write instead, “it was a three-day-long conference.” is that possible or is there a certain rule about it? Thank you!
