Thanks Simon! I'm note-taking phrases and collocations forever and ever.

Excellent comment Binh Thai. Noting phrases and collocations is one of the best language learning activities that you can possibly do!

Have you ever given a perfume bottle as gift? Question

Answer. Yes, of course many time even last month I had given a bottle of perfume one of my acquaintances and it's a special gift because it's something people don't but very often and giving someone a perfume bottle shows that you have put a lot thoughts who the recipient is and why they might like.

Could you tell me sir whether this answer is well or not I mean is there any need to simplify

Hi Simon,
I am interested in your member website and I want to subscribe, but I saw that you have already posted 10 or more lessons. So if I join today, can I have access to the previous lessons as well?

Hi Laura,

Yes, you’ll have access to all previous lessons.

Hello Simon, first I want to thank you for all your wonderful lessons. They are very helpful. And now I have a question.

You give us a method for answering questions in Speaking Part 1, which is to answer the question and give a simple reason or add some extra information. I've been adopting this method, but now I find that my longest answer only lasted for 13 seconds. I've recorded your answers on the worksheet to see how long they last, and it's the same. But we are supposed to be talking for at least 20 seconds for each question in Part 1.

So what I want to ask is, won't a short answer lead to a low score? What if I did the Part 1 in less than 3 minutes?
