Thanks, easy but sweeti from you to give the new term of endearment!
Maybe i had a mistakes so ever woman write to me a comment of my articles i write to her, kiss you, sweeti,
And the most mistake i was did, that call the shop assistance “darling”, once of them said i am not your darling, i am her for working, and she refused to sell me!
So the favorite tear i use: darling,
Kiss you,
Eve more i use love you for unknown women!
Thanks again, for the new lesson,

Here in Poland we also use other sweet or shiny things to call a partner like: doughnut, precious (as a noun). We also call them using animal names like: kitty, frog (a diminutive form), honeybee, puppy, mouse (again a diminutive form).

And now an ugly example:

I’ve heard once (in a conversation between only guys) someone who asked his friend: “do you go alone or maybe with your PIG?” O_o :P I know, it is not nice, but sometimes between “dirty” guys this kind of expression exists.

Have an excelent day for all of you. You too Ronnie :*

Hi Ronnie! Thank you for the exciting lesson about terms of endearment! :)
In Hungarian we use a lot of words with “sweet, sugar” meaning, but for example it is weird to call someone “honey”, because it is a food, so we don’t use this at all. But it is common to call someone “expensive”, I don’t know why. :D Or we use also “my star, my life, my little”.

Hi Ronnie, there’s this song called “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce and I’ve been wondering that why is it WERE instead of WAS? I thought WERE is used for more than one person?

Wednesday, July 12th 2017

    That’s a good question! It’s “were” because it’s in the subjunctive mood. Beyoncé isn’t talking about being a boy in the past; she’s talking about a hypothetical (imaginary) situation where she is a boy.

    (It’s not technically correct, but informally, many native speakers use “was”, e. g. “I wish I was a little bit taller.”)

    Wednesday, July 12th 2017

      Thanks Ronnie I understand now! But I am still not sure what a subjunctive mood is, could you please explain what it means or send me the link of your tutorial if you have one so I can see some more examples but if not, I wish you could do them in the future. I just want to let you know that you’re such a great teacher and you are easy to understand. I wish I had you as my English teacher at my school. I have been watching your tutorials and they are very helpful but I did not watch all of them because I’ve only watched the one that I struggled the most.

      Thursday, July 13th 2017

Thanks a lot Ronnie I like the way you teaching!!:)

Tuesday, July 18th 2017

Hello Ronnie!

I’ve started to watch engVid lessons about a year or something ago.

I went to the US for few months while I was in school (about 10 years ago) – every year (for 4 consecutive years) I went for like 1 month and a half with an exchange program and I made a lot of friends.
I really love English and I use it in my everyday life. I can understand movies, songs, people talking fast (as you xD), have a conversation with people from within the US, Canada and non-english speaking countries with their different accents. I’ve got a pretty good accent (according to my American friends) and I try to watch, speak, and write in English when I can.

I’m noticing that, maybe because of lack of day-to-day conversations with natives, sometimes I forget to include a word, proverbs, common ways to say something or just jokes when I speak to someone, even though I understand everything. If I just look at the words afterwards I feel stupid for not remembering them. Plus in these days I feel like I can’t speak or understand as good as I did few years ago.
What do you think I could do to just “remove” this defect?
I’d love to move to the US for a job (so I know for sure I’ll improve everything), and I’m trying to since few years, but immigration laws and stuff give me hard times.
What do you suggest me? Would it be possible to get in touch with you in some paid speaking Skype sessions to get me in shape with my English?
If so you can contact me at a.malinverni@me.com

Thanks so much!
Love,
Andrea
