31 Days of Learning English – DAY 27 – improve your English – WHAT/WHEN/WHY/WHO/HOW – 27th October


is there anyone there knock once for yes
and twice for no did you find me okay are you there
did you manage to sort your clocks out I have changed my clock we are now an
hour behind however the time of my broadcast remains the same welcome to
day 27 of 31 days of learning English in 2019 I really have suffered over the past 24
hours trying to work out how to sort out this problem with the time yes we are
now just after two o’clock GMT does that mean anything to anyone so I hope you
are there I hope you are watching right now because it’s so confusing all of
this with the clocks going back one hour last night so I hope you are there if
you are not there where are you so to be serious for a moment yes we
have put the clock in the UK back the big clock that controls all of the time
here in the UK has gone back one hour so it is still seven minutes past two
o’clock however it might seem different where
you are unless of course you have also altered your clocks it’s so confusing
can we just stop doing this it is far too confusing for us all so briefly to
explain what we had before was this British summer time so during the summer
we put the clocks forward by one hour and this makes the daylight last longer
we often call it daylight saving time so when we do this it means that we get an
extra hour of daylight during the summer and apparent parently apparently this is
what happens it gives us one hour of extra light and apparently it saves all
sorts of lives many lives are saved by this apparently so daylight saving time
most people know it as British summer time however here in the UK
we then revert we go back to where we were before
from this we go to this which is the original time Greenwich Mean Time you
can see their Greenwich Mean Time the word mean in this case means the
farthest distance from the least and the most so basically it is the middle time
so we are the farthest away from the earliest and also the latest so that’s
what we mean when we say Greenwich Mean Time so we are right in the middle of
all of the time zones between you and me I find time zones very confusing
especially when I travel abroad if you go to another country and if there is a
big time difference quite often you will get quite confused and for example when
I used to travel to Malaysia I would always feel very tired for the first
couple of days as I got used to the time difference so sometimes it’s seven hours
difference and sometimes it’s eight hours difference it’s really quite a
confusing subject I must be honest so now we have GMT you can see up above me
just up there so it’s now 10 past 2 GMT and that’s the way it will be until next
spring when it will change back to British summer time dear oh I need a lie
down on the floor after that so hi everybody here we go it is Sunday and
yes we can’t have the new day without some lovely fireworks of course it is
Sunday I know lots of people will be feeling a little
and happy because Monday is tomorrow but you still have your free time the
weekend is still here yes it is still sunday we are here today live on YouTube and we
are coming towards the end the final days of 31 days of live English the
final days are approaching Monday Tuesday Wednesday and the final day will
be Thursday 2 p.m. UK time you can catch me over the next 4 days as we say
goodbye to 31 days of English in October have you enjoyed it has it been
interesting I know some of you have enjoyed it I know some of you haven’t
enjoyed it what can you do really you can’t please everyone sometimes I try to
please everyone but as they always say when you try to please everybody you end
up pleasing no one so sometimes it isn’t worth the effort by the way you can have
captions if you want to follow my words live oh very clever you can click the
button right there on your screen so if you want to follow my words you
can lots of sport taking place today the world rugby tournament semi-final is
taking place today I think it’s Wales against South Africa
am i right I’m not sure anyway England won
yesterday so England are through to the final however who will they be against
will they be playing against South Africa or their archrival Wales so that
will be very interesting for those who are keen on rugby a showdown between
England and Wales so that will be very interesting if it happens
hello to the live chat oh hello live chat don’t worry I haven’t forgotten
about you I just want to make sure that everyone is here because I’m sure there
will be complaints mr. Duncan why are you on it’s a different time I’m not I’m
still on at 2:00 p.m. but it’s 2:00 p.m. GMT there it is
GMT so we’ve actually changed our clocks Wow oh hello – Chris Chris guess what
you are first on today’s live chat and a big congratulations to you Chris
Morales I will give you a lovely bow and also a curtsy as if I’m eating the Queen
thank you also to Tomic for joining us today
Rahul well a loop hello Guadalupe I love your name by the way I love saying
Guadalupe it makes me feel happy for some reason blue thunder nasiha also
Julie Messier asks please teachers about phrasal verbs well in fact I have done a
lesson all about phrasal verbs there is a lesson on my youtube channel all you
have to do is subscribe to my channel and then you can find all of my lovely
lessons so there are nearly 700 lessons on my YouTube channel most people don’t
realize that there are so many so I urge you to like what you see and also
subscribe is well please subscribe and like I know it sounds very desperate but
unfortunately here on YouTube we live in very desperate times so don’t forget to
Like and click and subscribe as well that would be ever so nice hello Olga
hello Luis hello Maria hello armed’ Wow so many people here
already I’m so pleased to see that you’ve found me even though the clocks
have changed we have gone back one hour here in the UK Patrick says hello it is
now about 16 minutes past 9 o’clock at night in Thailand so if you are a head
of the UK then it will be one hour later if you are behind the UK then it will be
one our earlier as I understand it it is
such a confusing subject don’t you think roll fee is here
hello mr. Dan Cohen the Dominican Republic is live with mr. Duncan thank
you very much nice to see you here hello also to Berlin Chris business
hello mr. business I hope you are okay what type of business are you in
what type of business do you do or are you pursuing some people especially
nowadays a lot of people want to break away from the traditional way of working
so when we think of working we always think of going to work in the morning
and then we spend maybe 7 or 8 hours at work and then we come home however
nowadays a lot of people want to break away from that tradition they want to
break away from the rat race we think of the rat race as being going to work
every day or maybe during the week you have to give so much of your time
however nowadays a lot of people are choosing to create their own businesses
and work for themselves so this would appear to be a thing that is a growing
trend even now so here in the UK there are a lot of people who are going alone
they are deciding to set up their own business especially in things creating
computer programs or maybe doing some sort of craft work no I don’t mean that
sort of craft work she is a model and she’s looking good not that craft work
craft work as in creating things such as greeting cards or maybe t-shirts or
maybe paintings that people create their own things and then they sell them so
that is one type of business that people are creating nowadays so
going it alone going alone on yourself having your own venture having your own
business is something that is very popular nowadays
hello patch you who says happy Diwali it is the festival of lights apparently
happy Diwali to everyone and here in the UK a lot of people are celebrating that
as well this weekend ciao mr. duncan satury No hello satury
no I haven’t seen you for a while it is nice because today all of us get back
one hour so all of us are now a little bit younger yes but the problem is you
have to give that hour back next year so you don’t get to keep it
unfortunately Irene hello Rosa hello Celia
hello also – Theo hello Theo the weather here by the way is gorgeous today would
you like to have a look outside let’s have a look outside it is a really nice
day so much better than yesterday we had so much rain I can’t begin to tell you
how much rain we had I will show you in a few moments because yesterday I went
for a little walk and I did some filming so you can see just how bad the weather
was yesterday we had so much rain and another view looking into the distance
although it looks a little bit dark at the moment over there the clouds are
rolling by so hopefully that that view will look better a little bit later on
I’m waiting for the Sun to come back from behind the clouds however over
there it looks rather nice thanks for joining me today we are talking about
interrogation or interrogate ‘iv questions so quite often where we ask
someone we will use certain words those words might be when
why how who so words like that for example hello Rosa hello Alexandra
hello Guadalupe nice to see you all here today so nice to see you here
hello also to Luis Mendez I am going to tell you the answer even if I don’t
follow sport its South Africa oh I see so I guess that the semi-final has
already taken place so South Africa will be playing England in the Rugby World
Tournament Cup final you can tell that I don’t really follow football all that
much you cut you don’t you know that now you know I don’t follow football or
rugby or tennis I don’t really follow sport at all
hello also to catch you we believe that today or night
I don’t lack sim Laxmi I’m not sure who Laxmi is I’m sure someone will explain
Khan all this here mr. Duncan I think all of your students are similar to you
we all love life and we are enthusiastic well sometimes in life you have to be
enthusiastic even if you are doing something you don’t really want to do
you can still be enthusiastic so quite often even if you have to do something
you don’t want to do quite often you can change your attitude so I think attitude
is everything in life whatever it is you are doing it is the way you see it the
way you view something and if you don’t like it maybe you can change it it’s
never too late to make changes in your life that’s what I always say Pedro is
here Pedro also ro sir
Nadia hello mr. Duncan from Paris oh now I know that I have quite a few people
watching in France many people watch my live streams and they never say hello
never some people are very shy so if you have never said hello on my live stream
before maybe today is the time to do it go on go on say hello mr. Duncan it is
my first time typing something to you so go on do it now I might give you
something nice in a return so yesterday I went for a lovely walk
I went very close to where I live because we’ve had a lot of rain and the
rain had been falling for for over 28 hours so we actually had around about 28
hours worth of non-stop rain and here is the result I hope you enjoyed that so some views
that I filmed yesterday on my mobile phone whilst out and about on a walk so
yes we’ve had a lot of rain it has been pouring down the rain had been falling
for many hours and and there were floods all over the place
so around this area there was a lot of flooding some of the roads were blocked
and you could see in that video the water was coming down the hillsides so
the things you could see were not rivers that water isn’t normally there it’s not
supposed to be there so you can tell just how much rain we’ve had over the
past few days quite a lot in fact we had rain for 28 hours without stopping so
that’s the reason why hello to patch you hello also to Ana
yesterday I went to the country I had a wonderful walk and picked many chestnuts
oh do you like chestnuts I like roasted chestnuts they are very nice hmm hello
Guadalupe my mother lives in a little town but her house is far away and there
there isn’t the internet but there are a lot of natural sounds one of my favorite
things one of my all-time favorite things must be the sound of nature last
night I was cleaning my teeth in the bathroom last night and I could hear
sheep so all the sheep at the back of the house last night were feeding in the
dark so they were all awake and they were actually calling to each other in
the dark it was very nice it was a lovely sound not to mention the Owls
quite often we get lots of owls near the house at night as well
so quite often you can hear them I like the sound of nature as well
hello row sir I was thinking of her mother oh yes of course Belarussians
mother is not very well maybe Belarusian easy with other things because today in
Argentina they are having one of these so in Argentina right now there is a
general election taking place they are voting for a new leader a new government
in Argentina so that might be the reason why Belarusian isn’t here today because
of the election mr. Duncan you make lovely videos you are also a good
photographer congratulations Thank You Silvia that’s very kind of you to say a
lot of people believe and they think that I have other people working for me
I don’t I do everything myself so all of the videos you see were created by me
all of the camera work was done by me all of the editing was done by me so I
do everything so all of the videos all of the things that you see were actually
created by me talking of videos we are going to take a little break and we are
going to go back six years to this actual weekend to find out what I was
getting up to I thought today I would do some of my lesson sitting down because
I’ve had such a busy month so I’m going to set my chair up in the garden
somewhere hmm now let’s see where shall I put it you know one of the most confusing
things about the English language relates to how it is used in England and
the way it has evolved in the United States the fear of many students is that
if they learn one version then they will be unable to use the other of course
this is not true many of the differences between British
English and American English are quite small yes the spelling of certain words
in American English is different color and labour have no.you license has an S
instead of the second C double letters in Words become single Center become
Center with er at the end spelt becomes spelled aluminium becomes
aluminum you may have noticed there that despite the different spelling most of
the words are pronounced the same ah but mr. Duncan Americans have a
different accent that is utter rubbish accents exist within all languages in
Great Britain the English language is spoken with a variety of accents all
over this country English is being used in many ways the spelling is the same
but the accents are not in the USA there are various accents too from one state
to another just like here in the UK English is
spoken with different accents I have said this before and I know it annoys
many English teachers there is only one version of spoken English accents are
not languages during my time in China I had a few awkward moments with
teachers from the USA who took offense at the fact that I was being allowed to
judge in English speaking contest why is he doing it he’s British there is
a certain amount of arrogance that goes with that statement I often found myself
on the receiving end of hateful comments and for want of a better word prejudice
from other English teachers I see no rivalry between British and American
English as far as I can tell when spoken they are pretty much the same when I
watch a US TV show I don’t have the subtitles active I can understand it
because it’s English one English language one way no confusion for some reason we always seem to get a
little emotional when talking about accents the notion is that a person’s
accent defines them but this is not true language is a means it is not who you
are all this talk of division in spoken English just ends up putting unnecessary
pressure on those learning it for English students this pressure can make
learning English daunting modern communication has broken down this
divide between languages we can grasp things much faster these days so
remember there is only one spoken English one way only no confusion
accents exist in all languages they are all as varied as each other doo-doo-doo-doo oh yes it is Sunday and
there we were going back in time six years ago to this very weekend six years
ago in the garden talking about some of the differences and also some of the
misconceptions about the differences between American English and British
English don’t forget there is only one English language only one that is spoken
the differences are often due to the accent that is being spoken
hello also to Eric can I say a special hello to Frankie 54 who says hello I
haven’t seen your name before on the live chat so maybe it’s your first time
here Pedro asks mr. Duncan it will be Halloween on Thursday will you be
showing mr. Steve as the ghost yes I will we will be talking about Halloween
on Halloween which will also be the last day of October which will also be the
anniversary of my YouTube videos being published for the first time I created
my youtube channel way back in 2006 however the 31st of October will not be
this this is not happening I’m not mentioning it I’m not saying the name I
will not say the name I refuse to say this so this is not happening on the
31st of October however this might be happening this might happen here in the
UK in December is it my imagination or has the world gone quite chaotic it’s
become very chaotic I think so Noemi says Mia we are voting today in
Argentina oh hello there and there are a lot of people I had to
hue-hue if you queue it means you stand in a line a line of
people you will wait to be seen or you will wait to be served so you have to
stand in a queue lots of people standing behind each
other hello also to Frankie
Oh Frankie is now saying I often watch your videos but I still have trouble
understanding the oral English okay don’t worry and a big hello to Lorraine
in France it’s nice to hear from you I haven’t seen you before on the live chat
so I think I will give you a round of applause a big happy bonjour to you Marwa is here
I agree the accent isn’t really important but the most important thing
is that you speak clearly and fluently yes this is something I’ve always said
for the past 16 years I’ve been talking about this in my work wherever I was if
I was in the classroom when I was in China I would always talk about the
importance of understanding that English as a language is one thing many people
become distracted by accents or the spelling of certain words when in fact
you should be concentrating on all of the root words so when we talk about
root words the common words that occur in English and those words will will
appear and occur everywhere so not just in the UK not just in the United States
everywhere so a lot of people do become a little confused or frustrated when
they don’t realize that there is only one English so don’t worry about
American English or British English quite often those things become
important when you start speaking so maybe some people like to speak clearly
when they’re using English it depends it is almost like a choice really hello to
Rolfie if all people spoke like mr. Duncan there would not be a problem oh
okay then well I agree with you some people say that I do speak very clearly
but then I am an English teacher I mean there would be no point doing this if
you couldn’t understand me it would be pointless to be honest with you when we
ask questions we are using a form of interrogation so you are using a
sentence interrogate of Lee so when we are asking questions there
are certain words that we will use to show that information is required so I
might ask a question but I quite often will require an answer so we will often
use certain words as a way of asking questions for example what what an
occurrence or an action you might react it by saying what what was that what are
you doing so quite often we will ask what as a way of finding out an
occurrence or maybe something that recently happened what what happened
what are you doing or maybe what are you doing tomorrow so maybe a future event
you were also asking about what another one quite often asked why why once again
you are asking for information why did something happen why did you say that
why did you go there why did you hurt me why why so both of these are forms of
interrogation we will ask a question and normally these require an answer what
did you say what did you say I didn’t hear you what did you say
why did you say that so in this sense we are asking the reason for it why so
quite often why is used to get information and also
to find out the reason for something occur
ring why did it happen why did you hurt me what did you say another one again
and very common words and these are all forms of interrogation where where where
quite often refers to location or the position of something so you are asking
for the location or maybe the position of a thing or a person where are you
where is he where do you come from so quite often when we ask where we are
asking for information about location or position where are you time is another
question you might pose or put forward when so when we ask when we are also
asking for information about not position but time we want to know when
something happened or when it will happen
when did it happen when will you arrive when will I be
famous when so this particular word relates to questions about time position
time however sometimes we can also use where when we want to ask a question
about a particular time so this can also sometimes we used to ask a question
about time when is almost always used to describe time or to ask a question about
time frankly it is better in English for people I believe but of course it is
more practical for me in French do you mean the language hi mr. Duncan I send
you my regards and greetings from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil yes your English is
perfect to be understood furthermore you are one of a kind in teaching English
direct from its birthplace it’s true England is where it all started this is
the birthplace of the English language thank you very much for that hello @ EF
@ EF says sorry I did not hear the notification I am late don’t worry you
are here and that’s all it matters mr. Duncan would you please upload full
English grammar courses from basic well the problem with that is everyone else
has done that if I do it everyone else has already done that so I always try to
do things in a different way different from other people so if I start doing a
20 part or 50 part course about English that will take all of my time I won’t
have time to do anything else and to be honest with you there are so many people
now on YouTube doing the same thing they are all doing the same thing they are
all teaching from basic English to advanced English so if I did that it
would take all of my time and I wouldn’t have time to do this so that’s the
reason why how this is another question that you can ask people how so the
circumstances of a certain thing the circumstances of a situation the one
thing became another thing so maybe a change of circumstance and if you want
more information about it we will often ask how how did it happen how will you
get here so if there is a transit taking place from one thing to another
we might be interested to find out how it happened or how it will happen
how will you get here how can I earn some extra money so you want to get from
one thing to another how do I get to your house
how so this is another question when we are talking about the transition of one
thing to another how did you become so unfriendly how did you become so
miserable how how did you get from one thing to another how hello to Emilio
what questions what questions our basic topic when English language is studied
I’m not quite sure what you mean by that what questions are basic topic when
English language is studied I think maybe you are giving me an example of
the use of when well in that case we are talking about an occurrence so when
something happens so in that sense the word when refers to the circumstances of
something occurring so in that sense it isn’t a question here in Mexico we have
changed the clocks to to what did you go forward in Mexico or did you go back in
Mexico so here in the UK we have gone back one hour how is mr. Steve mr. Steve
is all right don’t worry mr. Steve is still alive and well how did you find this channel and this
is an interesting question actually this is one of the questions I do like asking
how did you find this now over the years when I first started doing this on
YouTube the channel was very different from what
it is now in fact I would go as far as to say I would say 100% that YouTube in
2006 was completely different from the way it is now completely almost
unrecognizable in every single way one of the main things of course is the
quality of the video so many years ago when YouTube was very young the video
quality was pretty bad first of all the screen was very small and also the
resolution of the picture was very poor I think it was about 240 P which is a
very fuzzy grainy picture so the picture originally on YouTube was small and
grainy very fuzzy the quality of the picture was not good not good at all and
we have the final one of all the questions you might ask who who this is
very specific this is a way of finding out information about a person who maybe
someone broke into your house last night and they stole all of your jewelry who
broke into my house who did it who was responsible for the robbery
who who are you you might not know a
person’s name you meet them for the first time you don’t know who they are
you ask their name who are you who a person who who are you
who are they who do you think you are if you are angry with a person you might
ask them who do you think you are who do you think you are
it’s normally said at a point of extreme anger
it really is would you please show us your first ever YouTube video my first
video is actually on my youtube channel and I was actually filming inside my
house in China so that is actually the first video I ever put on there Rolfie
says I found this channel in an English group on Facebook that’s why it’s
important to share this channel with your friends to make it grow and reach 1
million subscribers can you imagine that if I had a million subscribers wow that
would be amazing I must admit that we’ve rather that would be rather nice I think
then I would do live streams every day maybe even twice a day who knows for
those who are wondering 31 days will end this week on Thursday it will be the
final day of October so on Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday I will be
with you from 2 p.m. UK time as we come to the end of English in October it’s
quite a shame really isn’t it I think some people might be a little bit
disappointed I think so do you like technology I love technology so much in
fact I love it so much I made a full English lesson all about here is a word that might be familiar to
you the word technology generally relates to any complicated tool that has
been created to carry out a task of some sort this task can be a simple one such
as adding up numbers right up to the really complex and difficult ones such
as steering a jumbo jet or sending someone to the moon there are some other
words that relate to technology such as device which is something that uses
technology to function such as a smartphone or tablet they are types of
devices the device forms the hardware of the technology while the programs and
applications running inside are the software they are both forms of
technology it is hard to imagine what life was like before modern technology
came along technology is used almost everywhere now in factories and offices
in our leisure pursuits in our cars and homes and perhaps in the not-too-distant
future as a part of the human body it would be fair to say that virtually all
of the great technological leaps forward have occurred
during the past hundred years since the discovery of electricity our world has
been magically transformed into an amazing Wonderland where our thirst for
information can be easily quenched and the human imagination is encouraged to
run free do you like technology would you miss it
if it wasn’t around what piece of technology do you use the most a
computer game a mobile device a super-duper talking watch which piece of
technology are you looking forward to using in the future a flying bicycle a
driverless car an artificial brain a holographic TV perhaps
will they ever be reality only time will tell so there it was one of my full English
lessons an excerpt from full English number 15 hmm I hope you’re enjoying today’s
livestream yes we are live for a few more moments and then I am going so you
have a few more moments to stay with me and then I will be off hello to Noemi
who says I agree with Marwa you deserve more than a million subscribers
well sometimes you know what they say about life sometimes the things you want
the things you desire are always out of reach so sometimes yes it is a little
bit difficult Erik asks mr. Duncan did you finally
receive your special gift from YouTube no no I’ve never received any plate or
play button from YouTube ever isn’t it strange so it would appear nowadays to
be awarded something on YouTube you have to sit in front of your computer and
play computer games all the time and Jane just and then just shout and swear
and then that’s it YouTube will give you a special prize and lots of money as
well isn’t that nice however if you put a lot of work into your videos and do it
for 13 years the rest as they say is history
Amelio interesting as all of your lessons are thank you very much we have
become addicted to your live streams what will we do after the 31st of
October well I suppose you can always watch all of my other videos there are
many videos on YouTube on my YouTube channel don’t forget like and subscribe
you can subscribe to my channel and then you will never miss another video or
live stream so there will be more live streams ah
after the 31st of October but not every day so I won’t be doing live streams
every day there will be some changes and I will tell you all about those as the
week goes on so on Thursday I will tell you exactly what is happening on my
youtube channel after November the first arrives
I found this channel by advice from the best channel to learn English and since
I started to see mr. Duncan’s lessons I couldn’t stop mr. Duncan is addictive
hmm it is almost as if people are addicted to English Wow I like that
hello also to Zayid mr. Duncan we want full English grammar basic courses if
you keep typing the same thing again and again please
I’ve seen your message okay okay see this is what happens sometimes
dear me when will people learn I’ve read your message I have seen it clearly and
I have responded to it please tell us what do you think people think about
Russia as a country what do English people think about Russia well I’m sure
there are many people who are who love Russia but of course there are always
people who will hate everything or anything there are people who hate
English people so maybe if I go somewhere in another part of the world
maybe there will be people who hate me that is something that happened to me
personally when I was in China I got a lot of criticism a lot of hate from
people who didn’t like an English man being the centre of attention so yes it
could it could refer to anyone really anywhere there are people who did
like who disliked Germans or French or maybe some people who disliked
Australians so there are people who don’t like Russia and there are people
who do between you and me I am always fascinated by the history of many
countries including Russia so during the periods of time when a country changes
from one thing to another it is always interesting the same thing has happened
here in the UK so over the years there have been many changes to the way people
behave or maybe the way the government works and of course the monarchy so I
suppose the biggest change here over the past four or five hundred years must be
the monarchy the the rulers of this country there used to have all of the
power but now they have very little power in this country after the signing
of the Magna Carta Patrick hello I like Russian vodka and also girls well good
for you I’m very happy to hear that at EF I
don’t like Iranians oh okay then I don’t know why why don’t you like Iranians
I’ve never met an Iranian that I didn’t like but then again as I go around the
world I try to find nice people to talk to but there are good in bad in all
societies and all countries including here in England and the UK so everywhere
has it’s good points and it and it’s bad points sometimes people will focus on
the good things and sometimes they will focus on the bad things so it depends
really it depends sheriff says racism is not
good well I suppose so I think it’s fair to say that being Ray
assist is not good or logical to be honest when you think about it it makes
no sense Connell says I was searching for the silent letters in English on
YouTube and I discovered my lovely teacher mr. Duncan Thank You carnal I’m
always interested to find out how people found my lessons so I suppose I’m a
little bit different from other teachers because sometimes I will talk about
subjects that other people won’t talk about so for example I did a lesson all
about death a very hard subject to talk about and yet I did it I did it I didn’t
want to shy away I decided to be brave and push the boundaries so many many
years ago I made a lesson all about death a very hard subject to talk about
Rosso is here also our man Z T Abdullah mr. Duncan greetings from Bahrain you
are the best English teacher and you have a unique way of teaching English
can you use other platforms platforms like Instagram for teaching and also
Twitter well first of all I do have a Twitter account so I do use Twitter but
not very often because Twitter is is not really an
education platform you may have noticed that Twitter is a place where people go
to fight and argue over all sorts of things I do have an Instagram account
but again I don’t use it very often but I do have a Facebook account you can

  • Your doing great, but some people can’t find a time to join your classes, so they do ask questions in comment section, but you don’t reply back to them, why? In addition, if you don’t reply them, why don’t you answer them in live stream?.?
