  1. Can you write what you say ?
    i want to translate what you say in translation becouse there are more words that i don't know it and i can't write all this words , i am lazy :

  2. I hope you read this comment. But this video comparing with the posted 12/07 is very different. You're chronicling horse race? Lost the simplicity and I'm failing to see your video. Probably should have won much fame and now this different! Great transformation of personality. See his previous 12/07 videos and take its conclusions of character and humility.

  3. Alisha, your voice is very clear and easy to understand. I've seen some videos of others teacher they are also interesting but sometimes not that clear. I know technology helps but the voice is important. What I like the most is that your teaching is not too long 3 minutes of very interesting information.

  4. I'm Thai. Your voice is clear and fluently, but if you could speak more slowly. it will be better for me. Thanks

  5. Alisha , your way of teaching English is the world best method I have ever experienced . I have been teaching English as a second Language in Srilanka for 32 years . I have been experimenting different methods and following but your teaching method is excellent , very effective and attractive. I would like to know your teaching more and more.

  6. American video, but most of the details presented here are shared with the Canadian Labour Day holiday.

  7. we don't even celebrate like any holidays except Halloween, Christmas, Easter ,and new years. The rest we just have a day off

  8. The OP intentionally left out the fact that Grover Cleveland had sent troops to kill the workers. Many workers died to try and bring workers better pay, less hours, and safer working conditions. All of which was started by anarchists for the betterment of their fellow humans.

  9. Unfortunately due to your use of the word bloody I was unable to use your video as a visual aid and it is a pity it would have fit perfectly with my lesson plan.
