Hi guys, I really like your chanel. I have seen lots of English teachets.I think you're the best ones. Congrats! What's the difference between dash an underscore
Elena Alban (21 days ago)
Thank you for answering my q uestion but I still have one more. There are some e-mail addresses like this jonisaac_64@gmail.com How would you read this? Bye from Ecuador.
Interactive English (22 days ago)
Hi Elena. Thanks so much for your comment. We're glad you enjoy our lessons. That's a great question. A dash is an actual punctuation mark in which you can add parenthetical statements or comments. An underscore is a keyboard symbol that used to be for underlining text. But this is back when people used typewriters. Today, I think it's mostly used as a "space" when typing names or passwords. Hope this helps! 😃👍

That's very polite of you. Thank you very much indeed. But let me put forward a suggestion. When you have time, make a video about some phonological processes, such as assimilation, deletion, elision etc, the way Americans really speak. I'd be extremely grateful. See you...
Interactive English (1 month ago)
Thanks for your suggestion Antonio. We plan to do more pronunciation lessons in the future. Right now I'm putting together a lesson on the American Flap T sound. 👍
Antonio Mouta (1 month ago)

Neeraj Jasrotia (2 months ago)
& What does this symbol mean?
Interactive English (2 months ago)
Hi Neeraj. Thanks for commenting. That's a great question. This symbol (&) means "and," So instead of saying spaghetti and meatballs, one might write spaghetti & meatballs. 👍

Hi Geraldine. Thanks for commenting. That's a great question. As far as I know, this symbol (+) is called "plus" in English, just as it's called in mathematics. Glad you enjoyed the lesson. 😊

Hi guys! Thank you for this lesson. I needed to know the difference between dash and hyphen! My keyboard is in Spanish, so "caps lock" is bloqueo de mayúscula (Bloq Mayús)... I get it!

I live in Wiesbaden but English is my first language. I came here bc I was so frustrated learning German I had to return to my own language to see how they were teaching it and hopefully find out what the words mean that the German teacher keeps forgetting to tell us. I thought it might help to return to English and it did. It helped more than I even suspected it would.
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks for commenting Vicki. I can imagine how frustrating it can be learning German. Hope you have a great day! 😊

Élysée Pasteur I think you meant “Keep it up”, not “Carry on”.

What the meaning of "over-the-counter medicine"? I am really curious and I am so excited to learn it 😘😘😘
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks for your comment. That's a great question. The term "over-the-counter" means that you can buy something without having a prescription or license. It's often used when talking about medicine that you can buy without a doctor's prescription. So for example, people can buy Tylenol or Advil for headaches and they don't need a prescription. These would be over-the-counter medicines. 😃👍
Thank you for helpful lesson!

Glad you enjoyed the lesson Nikolay. Thanks for your comment, and I hope you have a great day! 😊
But this video is not regarding to English Topics..
Interactive English Yeah I know but these are all common knowledge in Internet. I think this is not so that much tough. Well Thank you for Reply.
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks for your comment. This lesson is more about learning certain vocabulary words. For example, if you're telling someone your email address, two important symbols to know are @ (at) and . (dot). 😉
Gini Choudhary (4 months ago)
Please tell what we call circle when we dowload somevdieo..
Gini Choudhary (4 months ago)
Thanks
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks for your comment Gini. That's a good question. I'm not really sure what the symbol looks like. I know sometimes the "download" symbol is a circle. Or sometimes a WHEEL (circle) appears when we download something that shows us how long it will take to download. In that case, I would just say it's a time clock. 😃
Nabilla Ramirez (4 months ago)
this is the top notch explanation I've ever seen (thumbs-up) thanx a bunch sir as usual you've just hit the point by explaining such extremely important subjects would you mind making another video about more common American abreviations used in the internet ? keep it up sir my best regards from Algeria 😘😘😘😘
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks so much of your comment Nabilla. And I appreciate your suggestion. I think we will try to make more vocabulary lessons using common symbols. The symbols are becoming very important since we use and see them all the time. Have a great day! 😃👍
LY Nguyễn (4 months ago)
How about " ^ ^ "?.I have no idea what it means .Please let me know ,thanks
Interactive English (4 months ago)
That's a great question. This symbol (^^) is called a caret (it's pronounced just like "carrot"). Mostly, I think it's used for proofreading and making corrects. To be honest, I never really use this symbol. But here's some good information about it: http://www.writeawriting.com/grammar/caret-symbol-english-language/
LY Nguyễn (4 months ago)
What an incredible lesson!.Do you often watch American shows?.Do you know "The tonight show with Jimmy Fallon?..By the way, I learned all internet symbols from his channel.Anyway,thanks a million for your lesson.

Very awesome video!! Can you call this * a Star?
Bassam salim (4 months ago)
Interactive English Thank you That was very helpful
Interactive English (4 months ago)
Thanks for your comment Bassam. That's a great question. Yes, when using the telephone or talking about a password on a keypad, people will say STAR for this symbol (*). In this same situation, Americans will also say POUND for this symbol (#). 😃👍
