Sometimes I help my mom set the table, with "my" pronouce like "me". I've always thought we only found this kind of pronounciation in the UK especially up North ( Yorkshire etc.) I think it's good for young children when they start to learn English to listen to other kids speaking this language.
Yves (1 year ago)
Thank you for your prompt reply. I run workshops to teach English to children and I always search these kind of videos, short quite easy to understand and authentic. But you didn't answer to my question concerning "my" Maybe it's me and my ears. I'm used to listening English people, so "me dad" "I can't walk anymore because of me legs."
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Yes, I think there are certain benefits to hearing children speak. For young learners, it's fun to have other children be their models. :)
Slavik Gost (1 year ago)
Nice video! I love to see your children doing their chores! It must be convenient to have little helpers around the house. :) I also like to know that you gave them kind of Russian names :)
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Yes, we compromised. We chose Natalia and Alexander, but no patronymic. :) Thanks for watching our lesson.
Mollie Tai (1 year ago)
Super adorable kids, as always!
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Thank you, Mollie. :) Enjoy your day!
Hi there! I have a question Which one is more common?: Doing the chores or Doing the Housework... Thanks in advance!
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Good question. "Housework" is very general. "Chores" are countable tasks. But it can also depend on who's doing what. As the mother in this family, I do a lot of housework (laundry, cooking, etc.). My kids help me by doing chores. I could say something like, "I have a few chores left to do today." But normally I talk about the housework that I need to do. My kids switch chores each week: taking out the trash, getting the mail, setting the table, sweeping the floor.

cdek (2 years ago)
Great idea, the most helpful part is just watching and hearing the kids speak.
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
Yes, not many adult learners get to hear kids speak the target language. :)

thanks a lot
oum adnan (2 years ago)
hi , how are you, please I want to knew deference between should,could and would
oum adnan (2 years ago)
thank you my best teacher
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+oum adnan Hi. I hope to address modal verbs in the future. There are many uses of COULD and WOULD especially. SHOULD is most often used for advice: I should go see a doctor and get some medicine. (It's my suggestion.) I could help you. (possibility) I would like to order now. (request/ statement of preference). There are many other examples I could give. Feel free to ask a specific question.
JaeSung Lee (2 years ago)

Amit Chakroborty (2 years ago)
Can you tell me what's different between "I'm not getting enough sleep" & "Sleep won't come"
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Amit Chakroborty Hi. If sleep won't come, you have trouble falling asleep. If you're not getting enough sleep, you sleep too little.
Jennifer, congratulations on this project. I found this wonderful. Your Family is beautiful. God bless you !!

Hi Jennifer, I'm enjoying this new series kid to kid English, great idea of you making us get back to the basics. By the way, you have adorable kids, take my compliments for that. Congratulations to the young actress, she really impressed me. Have a nice week, thanks for everything.
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+fabianologfatec I'm glad more advanced learners are still watching these videos. I figure it's nice to see new faces, younger faces. :) You'll see more of Alex and Natasha in 2016. We'll build the playlist slowly. I don't want to pressure them. :) Thanks for the support.
The kids are adorable, thank you guys. I'll pass this video to my nephew Juan Pablo, who is a 9 years old kid attending a bilingual school in Cali Colombia, he just started this year and it's been challenging for him, he is getting better grades now, though. 😃
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+María Cristina Reina M I hope your nephew enjoys studying English with my kids. I think it's more fun for them to learn from each other. To kids I'm just an old lady! :) Kind wishes to you and your whole family.

Roman Sung (2 years ago)
I have OCD, I can't sure vowel short /i/ 's true pronounce. sometimes I hear short i like /ei/,such as will,lip & six. sometimes it like YEAH,such as still. i of it and is & if's i are same? thank you,I am anxious for it
Roman Sung (2 years ago)
+JenniferESL thank you very much :)
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Roman Sung IF, IT, IS all use a short i sound. You can also use my older series on English Vowel Sounds. You can focus on front vowels, which include the short i. The pronunciation app on the sounds of English by the University of Iowa is also useful. Good luck!
Roman Sung (2 years ago)
+JenniferESL I haven't watched that video but I will. I am Chinese and no short i in Chinese, so I can't find Chinese vowel replace it. Short i of IS and IF/IT are same? I always hear different voice from them. Sound of IT like short sound of ate, vowel of IS like phonetic symbol of long i. Someone said IF like vowel of IT but someone said IF like vowel of IS. That are habit? I'm sorry my questions are many but I anxious long time for it. When I remember words I always fear some words, that are prefix EX and other words with short i. I just repeat that many times to sure my pronounce or correct my pronounce. My grammar is bad, thank you again for your help, I will learning English hard.
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Roman Sung Hi. In fast speech, unstressed vowels can often be reduced to a short i or a schwa (like "uh"). Keep that in mind. Yes, the i in IF and IT sound the same. Have you watched my 20-day Fast Speech Challenge?

Hi Jennifer, thank you for your new words !! Can you do a vocabulary video about DAY?? Like day by day, day after day or every other day..... I have some confused and it's hard to remember all.

Chore = Tarefa (Brazilian´s Portuguese)
t. feles (2 years ago)
How cute they are, Jennifer! I learned the word "house chore" from a friend who once had studied in the US over some decades ago. I've never learned that word at school or even now I haven't heard of anybody around me studying English used that word.
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+t. feles We usually talk about kids doing chores around the house to help. As the mom/wife, I talk about the housework I need to do. What's more important in this video is the list of possible chores: setting the table, taking out the trash, etc. Thanks for watching!
peace& love (2 years ago)
thank you so much
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Basem Omda You're very welcome, Basem.
Great job, Natasha. Congratulations! Taking out the trash is also one of my chores. Say hello to your mom and your brother Alex. Bye!

Sultan Medico (2 years ago)
Children who have chores Are most successful as adults. it is important that children have regular chores to do. It teach children that as part of a family. Doing household chores has many benefits, children learn their parents’ standards and work ethic when their parents teach them to do chores. It is important that children begin learning this at an early age. Alex and Natasha are so cute! Tell them I said hi. Our's small teachers!!
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Sultan Medico Thank you for supporting them, Sultan. I need to be more strict. They do help with the mail and trash regularly, but I have to remind them to help with the groceries. Also, Alex hasn't mastered the art of making his bed neatly, as you saw!
Andrea Giraldo MD (2 years ago)
Dear Jennifer; I've checked how to use difficulty/trouble with 'verb + ...ing", and in my grammer book these prepositions (e.g. in / with) are not used with those expressions. But I've checked them on the online dictionaries, and then some similar examples with prepositions appeared. These are from Cambridge online dictionary. - People with asthma have difficulty in breathing. - [+ ing form of verb] - She had great difficulty finding a job. ( without preposition) -I have trouble with Latin. -I have trouble understanding Latin. Now I'm really confused. I can't distinguish the diffrence between these two, I mean, when I should put the preposition 'in', and when I should not put it. Thanks Jennifer
Andrea Giraldo MD (2 years ago)
+JenniferESL Thank you very much indeed, dear Jennifer. A
JenniferESL (2 years ago)
+Andrea Giraldo Hi Andrea. Two patterns are common. They both refer to something being difficult: 1) have trouble with something I'm having trouble with my math homework. I have a lot of trouble with prepositions. I have trouble with Latin. 2) have trouble doing something I'm having trouble hooking up my computer. Did you have any trouble downloading the file? I have trouble understanding Latin. The Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English and Merriam-Webster only recognize these two patterns. http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/trouble_1 http://www.learnersdictionary.com/definition/trouble I've heard and seen "trouble in breathing," but I think it's more common to use "trouble breathing." If you use IN, it would likely be fine, but I'd suggest using the two patterns shown above.
Andrea Giraldo MD (2 years ago)
Spendid ! Jennifer, You are the best. Please say goodbye to Natasha and Alex. H

+Andrea Giraldo Thank you, Andrea. I'll pass along your greetings to the kids! :)
