Hello, Wess! Someone asked me if it is correct to say: "I am very much enjoying my trip "or : "I am enjoying my trip very much ". Is there a rule in this case? In my opinion, it sounds better on the final part: I am enjoying my trip very much. What do you say?
Hi Maria. That's a great question. Because "very" cannot be used to modify a verb, we would use "very much." Both are grammatically correct. That being said, "very much" is often placed at the end of the sentence in more colloquial speech. When placed before the verb, it really gives emphasis to the emotion. 😃👍
In Germany it's the opposite of that; they expect you to be shallow in a job interview (Bewerbungsgespräch) and deep in a social setting. That's why I'm in such an intense culture shock; that and the fact I was sick for the first 4 months I was here. I was so sick I didn't notice some really important differences, like the fact that on any double bed they own they place two twin mattresses side-by-side, which makes no sense to me. Why don't they just get TempurPedic double mattress if they're so worried about movements irritating your partner? He asked me what's TemperPedic. That was hilarious. I hate to see what they'll think of doing to control snoring. Single mattresses on a double bed won't solve it. When I lived in the United States with my husband, he made me sleep downstairs just bc I snored. He used to say he thought a freight train was passing through the bedroom.

Good video 👍 I hoped that I could be an effective speaker because I'm going to take some videos to teach foreigner Chinese. So practice is very important for me. Thanks for your tips. I will try the way of talking in the mirror. Sounds good.
Thanks so much for your comment Ivy. That's great you're going to start teaching foreigners Chinese. This is wonderful because Chinese is becoming so popular around the world. I'm glad you found the suggestions useful. Keep practicing & keep up the good work! 😊

It'd be MORE effective for TRUMP, who decided to take a JOB where Public addresses were going to be a major part of the work. I took Public Communications in college to be a Paramedic. Back when I did it I couldn't even understand why they thought we'd need whole semesters of it, but I do now. And even that wasn't as much as a god blasted PRESIDENT has to speak. He says whatever he wants, HOWever he feels and whenever he likes, and his rogue mouth almost launched nuclear warheads. That's why I signed the petition to impeach him. After seeing his mouth almost start nuclear conflict I decided not to care if Tom Steyer, the billionaire who generated the petition, had "suspicious motives" for doing it. I signed it anyway, largely bc I was married to a nuclear scientist and he told me things that not even the media appears to ever know. I assume they've never heard it bc, believe me, it's not something any rational person would forget.
I think the president of America should be required to hear something like this.
I know that practicing speaking before do what you wanna is so important especially if we have presentation. But the question for me is when I wanna take ielts test how can I train before about topic which I don't know it.... Because I prepare for ielts exam... And this makes me confused.
Thanks for commenting. You're absolutely right. When trying to prepare for the IELTS or even a job interview, you don't know exactly what someone might as you. However, you can learn about the different topics that might be discussed and familiarize yourself with the information. For example, here's the site I showed in the lesson. 😃👍
