    Lifetime vs. Lifelong vs. Lifespan

    Lifetime vs. Lifelong vs. Lifespan

    Today we have a great question from a student who asked about the difference between the words lifetime, lifelong, and lifespan.
    These words all seem to refer to the time period of someone’s life, but we use them in different ways in English.
    You might have a lot of questions like this one, about the difference between English words that seem very similar or even identical – and you’ll find a lot of answers inside my e-book, 600+ Confusing English Words Explained.
    The lessons have easy-to-understand explanations and examples, so that the confusing words become clear to you!

    Phrases for bad travel experiences

    Phrases for bad travel experiences

    Have you ever missed your flight? (Remember that in English we say "I missed my flight" and not "I lost my flight")
    Today we’ll learn some phrases you can use to talk about bad travel experiences and problems that can happen on a trip. I hope you don’t experience any of these things if you have a trip in the near future… but if you do, now you know some English expressions for describing them.
    When you’re in a difficult or stressful situation, it can be even harder to speak English while you’re nervous or upset – but when you know the right phrases to use, it becomes much easier!
    When you take my Everyday English Speaking Course, you’ll become much better prepared to speak English in any situation in daily life – so you can handle things calmly and confidently without panicking because you don’t know the right words to say.
    Come join the Everyday English Speaking Course – it’s my most popular course because it’s so practical and useful.

    Take back & taken aback

    Take back & taken aback

    Today’s lesson is on two phrasal verbs – take back and taken aback. These look quite similar, but they have very different meanings, and I’ll explain them with examples.
    I think it’s helpful to learn phrasal verbs in context, inside sentences, in situations where we’d really use them.
    That’s the strategy we use inside my Phrasal Verbs in Conversation Course. It's an easy and effective way to learn the phrasal verbs that are so common in English!

    Where exactly to put "please" in a sentence

    Where exactly to put "please" in a sentence

    In English, we use the word “please” to make requests and orders more polite – but have you ever considered where exactly to put the word “please” in your sentence?
    In today’s lesson I’ll show you several correct places to put the word “please” as well as a couple that sound unnatural, which you should avoid.
    "Please" is a word we use every day, so we want to use it correctly. It’s really important to know the most common words and phrases so that you can be more confident speaking English in daily life.
    That’s why I created the Everyday English Speaking Course, to help you know exactly what to say in lots of different situations! There are actually two levels of the course - so you can make progress and become a more advanced English speaker day by day.

    Phrases for complaining about your job

    Phrases for complaining about your job

    No matter how much you like your job, there are always a few things to complain about. In today’s lesson we’ll use five sample sentences to learn phrases and expressions for talking about negative points at work.
    Are any of these complaints true for you presently? Or maybe you’ve experienced these things in the past. Try to write a sentence or two putting some of the expressions we learned into practice.
    Remember to come check out my Business English Course. In addition to the lessons focusing on practical situations, it also includes lessons on business idioms – yes, many informal expressions are actually used in the business world or when talking about work – so you’ll learn those as well inside the course.
