wow…I’m the first post!..welcome everybody and enjoy the course!
Hi professor Rene, I’m new to all these topics, excited to learn.
Nice to meet you. I have experience summarizing, clarifying and clearing up misunderstandings.
I’m looking forward to learn more in the next class.
Hello everybody, well I am familiarized with some concepts, with the gramatical structure and some examples, in the academy, but I feel that not in the real live, for example, working. I’m so excited to learn more about them.
Thanks for the feedback!
Hey there!, I’m so excited to begin with the course, I just took the placement test and got B2, so here I am…
I’ve had the opportunity of both studying a master’s degree and working in English abroad (I’m from Colombia), but it’s been long time since I came back and talked in English for the last time. So, my resolution for next month is to improve my English level and, who knows, finding a remote job and earning in USD…
I hope you all commit with the goal and reach your dreams!!
This course seems amazing.
I don’t have much experience with the topics covered in this course. I hope this course can help me improve in this area.
Hello to every body, I have a bussiness , Vidamena, we sold and produce coconut oil and derivates, with our bussiness we ( i have partnerts) participate in bussiness fair, in this situations I have to explain my products and sell it!
This is the website:
I’ve already learned some about working with infinitives and reporting what others say. I think those are the only topics I’ve learned previously.
Hi René, well my experience with those concepts are mainly at work as expected, as a visual designer i have worked with many people mostly outside Colombia that are native english speakers, and right now i’m working with an english academy located in Miami, and my boss only speaks english too, however i have been using a certain level english since a very young age because my a lot of my family lives in the USA, included my oldest sister, so i need to improve my skills and vocabulary in those areas.
What is your experience with the mentioned concepts in different situations?
My experience with the mentioned concepts is in advanced English courses, using them in essays, workbooks, and exams. I haven’t had many opportunities to use these concepts in a professional setting because the conversations I had were for meeting people around the world and for some courses in English. For this reason, I want to apply these concepts in my professional and academic pursuits for increase my knowledge and undestanding.
Hi, René. I think I understand almost all concepts in different situations. However, I know I will learn a lot.
Hi! I’m a science teacher and I need to deliver instructions and explain rules to my students on a daily basis.
well about my experience with the course situations, I remember one embarrassing moment in a restaurant, I try to say “sauce” to request BBQ sauce, and the waiter understands “sausage”… was a little bit confused that situation
I understand the concepts however i need more practice in real life or more vocabulary to express myself better
For me infinitives are non conjugated verbs.
Reported speach is when you say or report what other people say.
Emphasize or summarize it is like when you recap or make a summary of an specific topic.
Hi everyone. I’m really excited to expand my vocabulary and the different tenses. Probably, the most common topic is ask politely… could you help me please?.. sorry for bother you…
I am willing to learn as much as posible because I am an English teacher and I need to manage all these concepts. My experience with the mentioned concepts has been only at school situations.
The girl who visited me in the hospital was very affectionate.
The TV I bought is very big.
The man from the house next door is my neighbor.
The weather yesterday was so cool. ❤️

I believe my biggest challenge is my to keep my mind always thinking in English, but is difficult for me because of my work and in my house I need to communicate in English. But nothing is impossible, is just to practice
Well I think we really need conflict resolution, vocabulary.
It´s the first course I listen about those topics.
I haven´t had any experience with unrelative sentences yet.
I hope this course allowed me to learn and increase my knowledge in this topic.
Wow, very interesting your achievements in life
Good luck to all of you with this course
Well, I would say that I only have real experience in the office situation, and the most of the time is writing experience. With the other situations I haven’t had the change to use my english in real situations but I hope to test them soon.
Hi, Actually I have loss experience in job, today the nearest concept is at the office, I am an internship in financial sector, but it is homeoffice

I don´t have much experience, and i hope all topics i am going to learn will be great help.
Hi Rene!!! Nice to meet you 🤗
I have experience emphasizing and summarizing, mentioning rules and instructions, and a little bit reporting what others say.
Also, have knowledge in:
Asking polite questions.
Expressing reasons and probabilities.
We use English as the main language in my job, so I feel comfortable but I want to improve. And I want to travel more, so I will have to learn more about how to communicate in public spaces.

My experience at the office is lower, because no one talk in english. However, my experience with the others departments are differnts. Such as in teachers lounge, everyone speaks in english. In spite of slower level, I try to increase my vocabulary only listening them. In case of restaurant's kitchen, I"ve not had the opportunity to express. At the hospital I haven't had any either.
I have experience with these topics in work environments, but I don’t feel comfortable with my skills, so I hope to learn a lot in this course.
Well, I studied English when I was in high school in Argentina, but I didn´t practice enough. Now, three months ago, I´m living in Norway and I don´t speak Norwegian, so I have to improve my English and communicate through it.
Hey there! I hope everyone is doing great, to answer Professor Rene’s question. I’m familiar with the use of infinitives, mentioning rules and instructions, and reporting from others.
I think I’ve seen all the concepts mentioned in the introduction, but I feel that I haven’t practiced them in real-life situations. I studied English many years ago and right now I want to improve my English level and the probability of obtaining opportunities of working abroad or getting a remote job.
I hope to learn a lot in this course.

Hi! I’m just excited about start this course, 'cause i think that i have to improve my english for increase my chances of new employement opportunities. I’m a little bit shy, but i’ll try my best.
My experrience for those situations makes me thing that sometimes you are more formal and other you can act more natural. Sometimes I have needed privide context or claryfing something to find an agreement or solving a problem.
At the end, all this tools can help me to be more clear in a conversation, whether it is talking, writing or chating.

Hello everyone, I have had limited experience with the concepts of the course, Although I clarify misunderstandings with my colleagues at work, those conversations are conducted in Spanish, so I can’t practice my grammar, speaking, and other languages abilities. On the other hand, i frequently read, check and compare documentation in English, because I work on IT company. My objective is to enhance my English skills in order to work with a US-based company. I believe that improving my speaking ability is crucial, which is why I am here.

However I’m looking forward to improve on those areas too.

What is your experience with the mentioned concepts in different situations?
I actually learned English when I was 14 years old(about 1 year), since then I’ve been practicing on my own, I get to practice randomly when I meet foreigners but that doesn’t happen very often, I would say that I feel comfortable with these concepts, but of course, I would love to live abroad and further improve my language skills. curiously, I currently work at a military hospital in Mexico City.
As many other classmates, I have experience in real life using the mentioned concepts, mostly at work.
But I think I need to practice more in order to improve my skills and be a better professional, there is always room to improve.
