Transcript

Hello, everyone. Hello! It's nice to see you all here. Welcome to British Life and Language. I am your teacher. My name is Lindsay Black. That's L-I-N-D-S-A-Y Black. Before we begin, some information about the class.

Our class is in room 13, on the first floor. When you go upstairs, turn left to find the room. Again, that's room 13.

We have class twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday. Our class begins at 4.30 p.m. and lasts 90 minutes, so we finish at 6 p.m. That's 4.30 to 6. Please arrive on time, OK?

Also, I have an office hour if you have questions. I'm in office 7B on the second floor. My office hour is Friday at 6 p.m. So, if you have any questions or problems or want to talk to me, it's Friday at 6 p.m. in office 7B.

We begin next week, on March the 13th. That's Monday, March the 13th. The course ends on May the 20th. May the 20th is the last day.

I think that's all ... Oh, one more thing. For this course you need the book. Here it is: British Life and Language Level 1 Student's Book. So, please get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book, thank you! Remember, it's level 1 student's book. Don't buy the teacher's book.

I think that's all, everyone. I look forward to working with you. See you next Monday!

I started to take an English class for IELTS preparation from one of the applications twice a week stared from this year with a native English speaker for half an hour, and the classes were amazing, I can see the difference in my skills, and the improvement started to be noticeable to my closed friend.

when i was a student , i used to attend a english class , it`s a bit expensive , so i studied by my self . English is popular all over the world and my country english `tuition is so expensive to study at school. i think english is extremely important to everyone . But now im a salary man , i am really have no time to join any class after work , So i prefer to study online instead, and i can practice to speak english with AI technology with my phone , it costs a lillte bit fee for every months , but i can save time , and save money . Sometimes i am looking for a foreign friend by internet to improve my english skills .

It's right! But, if you want learn and practice English, you must go to UK, USA, Ireland etc. I'm beginning learn English, now.
