Hi everyone. My name is Yoan. I am from Indonesia. First of all, let me apologize to you all, because I'm still learning English. Talking about job is just like talking about passion. It is very important to find it. It can help us to get a comfortable when we are doing a job.

Hi yoan,

Welcome! No need for apologies. All are welcome to learn English and comment here :)

She said ( As I tell you ......) is that right or perhaps as I told you or As I am telling you .....

Hello Bassamtaweel,

Could you include the time stamp (the time in the video where she says this) for this? That will enable use to check the context in which the phrase is used so we can answer your question accurately.
