I think it's not important to have computer to learn English. I think with English tapes or interesting stories, you can encourage her to learn English. Short and simple stories are really great!

hi Nafis

thanx for ur advice but i feel that she is not intersted in all of that at allllll!!!!!!!!!!!!

you mean she isn't interested in stories? how about songs or singing? or games?



watching movies without a translating subtitle is good.(using heaadphone)


I like this idea thanx

"poeple", "thier", "does'nt", "pronouncation", "vian", "beside" (meaning besides), "advices to me", an obscene lack of punctuation marks...

Are you sure the problem is the English level of your student?? 

MARY:) Are you an English teacher?

Do I need to be an English teacher to point out this mess?

No, MARY, you don't need to be  an English teacher to point out this mess, I am just teasing you!


And how to pronounce that? I mean this letter "y" I thought it sounds better with a solid sound of a letter "d"

That'd be the Southern pronunciation. Just chill.
