Carry this paper or cardboard with you always. In the pauses of your busy day 656 when you're sitting on the bus, in the dentist's office, during commercials 656 take out the paper and review your vocabulary words until you feel comfortable that you would recognize (and be able to use) these words the next time you see them. The amazing thing is that you will see the words again 656 even "nefarious miscreants," and probably sooner than you thought. In fact, you might well discover that the words you've written down are rather common. What's happening is not that, all of a sudden, people are using words you never saw before, but that you are now reading and using words that you had previously ignored.
Engaging lesson Emma! While watching the video I was wondering how native Spanish speakers express the same ideas in our mother tongue.
Hi! Teacher, I am from India. I have been watching your videos for many months. I have learnt so many things from you. I really love your teaching style and your videos are very very useful for English learners.
Thanks a lot 😊 Emma for your precious lesson
This is part from a song lyrics: 8775 Turn me on, Turn me out. Make me screen, make me shout 8776 (Chimes). I love that song but I would like to know what is 8775 turn me out 8776 meaning. Thanks Emma!
Crossword puzzles are an excellent way to develop your vocabulary. Do the puzzles that appear in your local newspaper on a daily or weekly basis or try these interactive crossword puzzles on the internet:
The home dictionary should be large enough to contain much more than just spellings. It should contain extensive definitions, word origins, and notes on usage. Carrying in your purse or backpack a pocket dictionary with more concise definitions is also a good idea. Get in the habit of turning to it often. A well worn dictionary is a beautiful thing.
In Borrowed Words: A History of Loanwords in English , I examine how words borrowed from different languages have influenced English throughout its history. The above feature summarizes some of the main data from the book, focusing on the 69 sources that have given the most words to English, as reflected by the new and revised entries in the Oxford English Dictionary .
Hi Emma! Thank you for this lesson. I have been studing english a long time and with you I feel that I can improve. I have a question, I have had a lot problems with Phrasal verbs. I can´t memorize them. Do you have some advice for me? Maybe more videos for practice? Thanks

I tried to use all this phrasal verbs in one story for remembering them but I think I made mistakes:David always checked me out when I went pass him. And one day he hit on me. Also his beard turn me off, but his long hair turn me on. We began going out. After dating about a week he invited me at his apartment. We made out passionately and then we hooked up. On next day I called him and asked him out at the restaurant. I was waiting for him long time but he didn 8767 t show up. He just stood me up! Then I found out that he cheated on me and we broke up.☺
