Popular TV Shows, Writing Essays, and Fluency Tips
For the final Confident English lesson of 2017, I want to share something completely different.
As you know, every Wednesday, I share a lesson with you. With each lesson, I focus on one specific topic. We explore it, discuss it, and expand on it so you can advance your English know-how. And become more confident in the English you use.
But this week I want to share a different kind of lesson with you. This lesson is unprepared, more informal. It’s a combination of Facebook Live moments.
It’s just me, talking to you like we’re in a room together. And sometimes – warning – my language is much more relaxed. I may even use bad words from time to time, so use headphones if children are in the room.
Every Friday, I go live on Facebook for an Ask Me Anything session. My students share questions they have about pronunciation, grammar, synonyms, confusing words, phrasal verbs, funny expressions, what life in America is like, how I celebrate the holidays and so much more.
And you might have some of those same questions!
So today I want to share a few of those fun moments with you. In today’s special Ask Me Anything mix, I share with you my answers to:
- How to write an essay in English
- How to pronounce the number 1,500 (there are two ways to say it!)
- What does it mean to, “Get your sh*t together?” (Heard on the popular Hulu TV Show The Handmaid’s Tale)
- My tips and tricks for fluency. What did I do to become fluent in French and how can they help you in English.

As I said, today’s lesson is different from usual and I’d love to know what you think!
You can tell me – directly in the comments – if you enjoyed today’s lesson. If you did, I’d love to share more of these more relaxed live episodes with you.
And of course, if you have a question you’d like me to answer, you can share that question below.
As always, I do love hearing from you and now that you’ve watched the video, review my questions below and share with me in the comments:
- What is one thing you learned from today’s Ask Me Anything video?
- Have you ever had a moment when you heard something on TV, a podcast, or a lyric and a song and you thought, “What does that mean???” Feel free to ask your questions and I just might answer them in a future live session!
