My old friend and I met weding cermony after long time, we are from same Holly Quran school.

No, I have not met anyone in an unusual way. I met my husband at an activity at my school, a fundraiser for the graduation of the seniors of that school year.

My husband and I are students at the same university. It is the first time to meet each other when my friends and his friends went to a trip together. At the trip, I noticed he often stares to me. It is always the remembering time for my life.
Yes I have. When I start a relation with my boyfriend, I don't want my friends to know. So I didn't tell them anything about him. But after my class in university, I went with my boyfriend to eat something. Unfortunately I met my best friends from university in this restaurant and they don't call me almost two weeks .
I met my boyfriend when we went a trip. At this time, his seat is infront of mine in express car. When I took photos of library opening ceremony, he asked me if he had took photos for me. It isn't very unusual way. Now we broke up. I miss him very much but he can't never know how I miss him.
I don't remember that, but i think those situations were been. About ten years ago in the internet i met a girl, wich become my wife.
When I was in a school scout camp in 10th grade, I played a football game with another school from another village and there was an arrogant player said we will defeat you but we did that and a problem has occurred. After that, at the beginning of university in the first year, we lived with each other in the same student housing.
I sometimes meet girls in unusual way through talk with them on the street. There were many interesting conversations.
Hello. Many thanks for your all these English lessons. They are very usefully for me to improve my English competency.
I am a shy person. Even though i meet unusual way, i would not talk to her.I would just smile first.
This lesson helps me learn English, start with small detail of simple grammar in simple and small daily interaction within people who speak in English, and also remind me to be careful, pay attention to traffic signs, read and follow the task instructions, read and work on the tasks carefully and patiently. Thank you.
Hey..! I'm from the Philippines and I'm currently studying in highschool. I have always dreamed of going to the United Kingdom someday. That's why, at my young age I pursued studying and practicing on how to speak in English properly. I hope one day I could have a conversation with a British person for REAL. Anyway, thank you so much for making this awesome website!

Hello Juan Jose

I'm sorry to hear that. I've checked the video and it is working for me. Perhaps there was a temporary error, or, if you still can't see it, I would suggest trying to watch it using a different web browser or a different device. Please let us know if that doesn't work for you.

All the best
