I'm sorry but i never give instructions in english and i never did, but i hope one day i will do
Honestly i really would like give instructions in english but at moment i dont have fluent enough and i think i will learn more but right now is not a good moment.

Hello, the last time I give instructions in English to someone, was long time ago. It was in a Project, and I have to explain to technicians how to operate a machine that we have installed.

Hi BC, I have a problem with videos in speaking part. Here is Connection Error. Could you help me? Have somebody the same problem?

Hi MikhailZatopliaev,

I've just checked the video and it's working fine for me, so it may have been a temporary problem. Did you find the problem with only this video, or other videos too? Perhaps you can try using a different web browser or device to check if the video plays there. Please let us know again if the problem continues.

I didn’t give instructions in English, but I still want to tell my story. This morning, a man asked me to show him how to drive a car. So I gave him the instructions which I knew. After all, I’m happy because I can help others.

Hello
I have one question
Why was it wrong, when I put Ok or ok in the gap in item 3 in Task 3 ? That is correct when I only write OK
?

Hello lean,

On this page, we have followed the spelling that the Cambridge Dictionary has for 'OK'. It's also possible to write 'ok', but 'Ok' would be strange since it's not at the beginning of the sentence.

All the best,

This week I gave instruction to my group mates about upcoming Workshop. I gave them instruction via google meet.

Two weeks ago, I gave some instructions to my father, I showed him how to use the printer.

One more good communication video. Step by step, with very general vocabulary shown how to have effective communication. I can surely able to use this while conversing with my daughter while teaching and guiding for craft. Thank you.
