Hello. I know English bad. But not bad read. I do not understand what I'm reading, but I feel that reading helps me.Advise me please books in simple English, books with simple everyday dialogues but not boring. Thank you.
Hi Pasha, for beginners, children's books are probably best. Search for "The Giving Tree." If you want a novel, search for "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." It's a great adventure story with simple English.
When the earth converts to it's final form, and proceeds with the process of absorbing our cellular matter, I feel like it is your face that'll be the last one dissolved into the crust, before the great silence in the absentee of humanity.

Hi Yahya, I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I do my best to answer questions on my YouTube channel, as well as on my Facebook and Twitter pages, which you can find here:
I do not currently offer private lessons, but I try to stay in touch with as many students as I can through comments and occasional private messages.
I feel quite disturbed when I think how immense the English vocabulary can get. I tremble when I have to speak in English though I have thoroughly practiced my lines. I wish there was someone I could consult, who would show mercy on me and help me out of my miserable condition.
My three year old was able to read just like a grade 1 pupil and my 5 year old reads like a grade two to three student after 4 months. I never expected such amazing results. I trained my children to read with the help of this fantastic reading guide “fetching loli only” (Google it). It is so well-organized that any youngster can learn to read with it.
One can read and reread sherlock holmes adventures handred tims but don't speak english. I'm an example. Reading english books about 10 ears. There is not a word I coudn't understand. But still not among happy english speakers.
+English Lessons with Alex (engVid AlexESLvid) Dear Alex, what are you do is excellent. But reading books wethout beeng in langwige invironment is dead end. It will lead you nowhere. Ten ears and one book every week is no little experience belive me. Best way to study langwige is to be cut of from your own kind. I think best plase to study english is english prison. One ear not big time. For example one flies to London, gives kik to customs oficer. Gets one ear impisontmen and after will possess exeptionally good and usefull english.
Have a good day.
I've just started to read Wuthering heights.
It is quite challenging experience for me.
The Joseph's line is almost unreadable,
I barely can understand what he is talking about.
I'm not familiar with Yorkshire accent,
what should I do?
p.s. The song of Ice and fire (Game of Thrones 5 books) were really easy to read.
But there weren't much to learn.
