What's up Master! My name is César "Caesar). I am an optician and I've been teaching English to bring home the bacon and your tips have been helping me improve my English fluency, thanks a billion!

Interactive English another thing Master, I am 50 years old and love teaching and learning English, but I use an old fashioned material to teach ' cause I work in a small town and my students cannot afford to pay for an expensive material. Would you have some tips to help me find a good but not that expensive material? I'd be eternally grateful!

Interactive English (1 month ago)
Hi Nabilla. Thanks so much for commenting & participating in the lessons. It's a great way to practice. 👍 As for speaking practice, we have some recommended sites in the "Description" part of each lesson. However, those are paid services. In the future, we plan to launch a free e-course on how to practice & improve speaking skills. Stay tuned! 😉
thank you so much for this. superb lesson. I would appreciate a lot if one day you talked about how to pronounce the letter "E" at the beginning of the words and at the first syllable of a word. Sometimes it is tricky. for example:... egg.... evil dessert. detail...

It turns out that candy like money is a non-countable noun.
Interactive English (2 months ago)
Very true. Thanks for sharing with us. "Less" & "fewer" are so frequently confused. I even catch myself sometimes using it incorrectly. Hope you have a great day! 😃
Children are always think that they take(eat) less candy. I have fewer vegetables than I need for a healthy ration.

Hi guys! I loved this lesson. Thank you so much! Pronunciation still is hard for me. I need more practice!... and I like this advice: Lisen English and repeat, you can imitate the "American accent" :D see you next Saturday, bye!
Nat Morada (3 months ago)
And... I have an example: I lived two years in Atacama desert! :)
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the lesson. And listening + repeating is a great way to imitate an accent. Keep up the good work! See you Saturday. 😊

I can't understand how native English speakers have so many problems with this. The fact that you pronounce almost all of them different (except for story) is what makes it easy for me to remember it. I only get confused when I use the web site where my friend works and they say something like "the word literally doesn't have to mean in physical terms, then cite sources saying that the word 'literally' has been used to mean 'figuratively' for over 100 years." He works for Oxford English Dictionary in England. He's a lexicographer; he puts words in dictionaries. It sounds boring but he makes it seem interesting. Still, I can't get used to using 'literally' to mean 'in a figurative sense.' But OED is always trying to be on the cutting edge of how the language is being used.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for sharing with us Vicki. You're friend is correct about the use of "literally." I remember reading about that in an article a while back. Hope you have a nice day! 😊

Sir, which sentence is correct? 1) I pity him bullied by people. 2) I pity him being bullied by people.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for your comment. The correct one is #2. It's a passive sentence so we need the verb "to be." For more on passive vs active, you can check out our lesson: https://youtu.be/qRqbAvO9uNQ

Sir, what's the difference between a collapsing building and collapsed building? I can't find the word " Collapsing" in the dictionary.Thank's
fong beng (3 months ago)
Thank you sir
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting. That's a good question. When I think of a "collapsing building," I think of a building that's neglected or in decay. A word that comes to mind would be "dilapidated." When I think of a "collapsed building," then I think the building has already fallen and is in rubble. Hope this helps! 👍

How much money does he have ? How much money does he has ? Please tell me which one is correct
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting. How much money does he have? 👍 The main verb "have" should agree with the subject "he." 😊

I really appreciate your lessons!🙊It was good to see you! Would you mind checking the following sentences? •John didn't come today, *maybe* he is sick •John didn't come today, he *may be* sick If they're not correct please let me know if they're used in different contexts. Thank you in advance👍
Gisele Estrada (3 months ago)
Thank you so much, teacher! You're the best!🤓
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Hi Gisele. Thanks for commenting & sharing those sentences. Both are correct and you used "maybe" and "may be" perfectly. The meaning is the same and this will help others distinguish between these commonly confused words. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 😊
Great lesson. Thanks. The one I didn't know before was Maybe .I used to use it like two words.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting & checking out the lesson. I'm glad it was helpful. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 👍
Thanks Sir. I was enjoying. Sir, I was confusing some of the words like 1. Personnel -- Personal. 2. Principal -- Principle. 3. Much -- Many. 4. Would -- Could. 5. Still -- Till. That's it.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Glad you enjoyed the lesson. Thanks for commenting & sharing these words. We'll keep them in mind for next time. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 😊
