        Talking about feelings and emotions is not that easy, especially if you do not have the means to do it. The lesson -to some good extend- allows us to do so.

        A point I’d like to make here is that personality traits and emotions are two completely defferent dimensions. To avoid getting mixed up, it is always useful to bare this point in mind.

        Well-designed quiz Gill! Thanks

          Even dictionaries, sometimes, are insufficient to describe emotions, because emotion is something that is usually learnt practically, and its self is used to describe other meaning, just like Euclid’s axioms in Geometry, which is seemed obvious, and can not be proven, meanwhile is used to prove any other results.

          Saturday, December 17th 2016

          Philosophers call these kinds of things “qualia”—raw sense experiences that are more than their physical causes.

          Monday, December 19th 2016

Saturday, December 17th 2016

Wow. A new lesson again. In these days teachers put new lessons on website sooner than before. Thank you Gill.

Saturday, December 17th 2016

thank you my teacher Gill

Saturday, December 17th 2016

Dear Gill,
I think, if somebody is prickly or touchy, it isn´t their feeling, but it is their personal charakterics. A feeling ist something, that takes little time, it is not permanent for anybody. If somebody is prickly ot touchy, it is for their typical and permanent carackeristics. A think, you are a little wrong in this way.

Saturday, December 17th 2016

Both, timid and timorous, are no emotions as well, but the personal charakteristics.

Saturday, December 17th 2016

Excellent class!!!!

Saturday, December 17th 2016

    Hallo Nataana, in video Gill herself has been telling, that to be timid ot timorous means to act ALWAYS in this way. Therefore I fhink, it coun´t be the short-time state of mind. Is only my opinion, but thank you for your comment.

Sunday, December 18th 2016

“Anger”, “fear” and “confusion”, they are topics with negative meanings and maybe not easy to identify the word with the concept. You need to remember some English Idioms too and you should use it logically to explain the state of a person’s mind. Thanks a lot teacher Gill like always a very good explanation.

Hi my favorite teacher.
I love your teach style.
Please, if possible tell me about “merry & happy”, Why they are Different?
Why English People say “merry christmas and Happy new year”?
Why they use it same word for say that?
Thank you.

Saturday, December 24th 2016

    That’s a very good question! Christmas is the only holiday we use “merry” with — if we use it at all. In the UK, they also say “Happy Christmas”, though “Merry Christmas” came first. Here’s one explanation.

    One possible reason: practically all our Christmas traditions were introduced in the Victorian era (mid to late 1800s). “Merry” is what is used in Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, one of the most popular Christmas stories from that time. It is also in a lot of Christmas songs that became popular in North America.

Dear Ms Gill,
I discovered Engvid.com only recently. I´m an elderly one, had lived in the GDR-there we had problems to have experienced teachers of English, because they weren´t allowed to visit the Western countries. I was lucky because our teacher was married to an English husband and she spoke a really good English. Now I have been learning English in evening classes for already a lot of years, but the way you give your lessons at engvid. is absolutely great. I wished I had met you earlier. But I suppose the clarity of your English is much better than most people in GB w
