Mission: To help adults improve their English.
Operating as usual
Good evening everyone,
here's a good website to help you practice your listening skills!
esl-lab.com A list of English listening activities at the easy level for Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab.
Something I know for sure is that my students LOVE eating.
Here's vocabulary words to talk about FOOD, so that you can invite your foreign friend, co-worker or teacher out for lunch or dinner!
I found these images at: https://myenglishtutors.org/food-adjectives/
Here's a video for all my students who were curious abouty hometown!
The History of Montréal from the occupation of the first settlers to the European colonizers in less than 10 minutes.
Here's a song I like to listen to a lot these days.
I hope you enjoy it!
Another day, another student who tells me that they feel like they can't improve.
There's no secret. To improve past the beginner level you need to change your H A B I T S.
Most importantly, stop trying to avoid G R A M M A R.
ALL of my students have terrible grammar, even if they tell me that's all they did when they were younger.
Practice every day, and get a private teacher. Classes in centers are good, but unless you're a very hard
W O R K E R, you will improve slowly.
Give yourself homework. Don't wait for a teacher to give you some (and when a teacher gives you homework, DO IT!!!)
after 6 years here there's one thing I notice in 99% of my students. You are all L A Z Y and pretend it's not your fault when you don't improve.
Study. Focus. Work hard. That's the S E C R E T.
basicenglishspeaking.com Below is a series of 40 basic English grammar lessons covering most of the English grammar tenses and most-used structures. All the lessons are designed with clear definition, explanation, form followed by lots of examples.
A LOT of my students complain that they can't read books in English, they don't understand, it's so boring.
I learned most of my grammar by reading TONS of books when I was a teenager. I didn't care if I didn't understand the sentence completely. I just wanted to learn.
I used a dictionary and looked up the words that were too complicated, but I didn't look at every single word.
If you are trying to read an article or a book and you don't understand ANY of the words, you have to find the appropriate book for your level!
Children read children books because they can understand the words and the moral of the story.
There's no shame in starting with children books. That's where I got started!
Here is a list of books that you can try!
Great little video!

can you suggest to me some good Vietnamese songs I can listen to, so I can practice?
My problem with Vietnamese music is that I don't really like most of the songs I hear. If you know any catchy rock or rap songs in Vietnamese, please share them here!
Oh wow! Perfect!
A whole channel about beautiful songs in English, with both EN and VN subtitles!

Practice this. Now. 5 times a day. Start slow, and go to the real speed when you're ready.
Make mistakes. Keep going. Keep trying. Don't give up.
Look up the words you don't know. Make this your project.
Take a month. Work on it until the end of August.
Your English will get better. I promise.
Get off your butt, and work.
There's no secret.

Good afternoon everyone,
this morning instead of teaching a regular class to my private students, I introduced them to the wonderful world of Role-playing.
You can read what happened in my blog: https://saigongeeks.com/2020/07/18/cwvs-pf-2e-session-1-were-back/
If you have more questions about this hobby, feel free to ask!
saigongeeks.com I just now finished DMing for 2 hours to 2 of my private students – two nice and smart persons who wanted to try out TTRPing for a while now but due to my depression, I’d been putting o…
Here's a song I love to listen to, but recently I paid more attention to the lyrics and they made me real sad.
Here are the lyrics, let me know what you think of this type of song.
I'm living low down and I am using again
I'm hating my name cause I am cursed like my kin
And if I should see you before I am condemned
I hope you're deceived by the webs that I spin
I wish I was who I appear
'Cause I despise the man in the mirror
Lost deep inside of my dirty old soul
Some starry-eyed boy never taught self control
The cost of my living was more than I planned
So I held a needle like a gun in my hand
And I wish I was who I appear
Cause I despise the man in the mirror
The memories I've got torture my head
And I don't know God but I heard he was dead
And if I am wrong in judgement I stand
I will not repent cause I don't give a damn
You can send me to Hell with the rest of my friends
And I wish I was who I appear
Cause I despise the man in the mirror
I'm living low down and I am using again
In light of Benjamin's new direction musically, we decided to try something different for this recording. The words say it all. Big thanks to VJ Arizpe and R...
Here's an idea I had while climbing earlier today.
I wonder if people would buy it?
11 years ago I was facing my fear of heights!
Would you try bungee jumping? Is it on your bucket list?
Good morning everyone,
here's the Youtube channel of a teacher at SAS and one of my friends here in HCMC.
I hope you enjoy!

here's a varous famous YT show at the moment, of various voice actors playing Dungeons and Dragons - a game that helped me practice English when I was learning it.
I hope you enjoy!
Here's a neat blog post I found about bugs of Vietnam.
Practice English learning about your surroundings! 2 for 1!
Just a quick reminder that we'll be sponsoring our first event!
Tomorrow the 4th of July is the 2nd annual Boulder Beat, a rock-climbing competition hosted by Vertical Academy.
Vertical Academy has been my oasis of positive energy for the last 9 months and I'm really happy they considered our brand to be represented at their event.
I (Étienne) will personally be there from the morning until 5 pm (I gotta go to work) at which point our 1st artist and good friend Thach will take over, if you want to meet him.
I'll be back after work for closing time.
We'll be giving away stickers and selling t-shirts. Cool little event if you're bored, curious, or just want to hang out!
Looking forward to seeing you there,
The Mua Gao team.
some students have recently been asking me which podcasts I enjoy listening to.
I don't really listen to podcasts but here's one from comedians that I like.
How would you react if you found out your best friend started the day with half a gallon container of Kool-Aid, and that they drink between 1-1.5 gallons of ...
Here's a song I used to listen to a lot when I was a teenager.
The lyrics are included. I hope you enjoy it.
Rise Against - Paper Wings
My side hustle :)
From time to time, people ask me: "How can I help?"
The simple act of sharing our posts and the page is the best help you can give (besides buying our products hehe).
Thanks to your shares I've been busy delivering shirts across town during my free time.
Thanks a lot for your support!
Truth be told, I was about to pull the plug on the project this year but instead we're going to keep grinding and start offering different products.
We'll be a bit more stingy however, as we've been operating at a loss since day 1 in an effort to gain exposure.
If the brand is to survive I need to be more serious about it.
So, thanks for all the shares, the likes, and the orders, I appreciate it enormously!
And a very special thank you to my original artist Thach, without whom I could have never started at all.
I'm looking for a funny way to say "Always in a rush but always late" in Vietnamese.
Do you have funny traffic idioms in Vietnamese?
Good afternoon everyone!
Here's a GREAT app to help you get better at writing in English.
It fixes your mistakes for you!
Of course if you want to improve, you also have to focus and pay attention to the mistakes it's showing you, so that you can remember how to avoid them in the future.
I hope it helps!

This is my hometown, which I miss very much right now.
I'm happy to be in Vietnam during the Covid-19 pandemic, but I hope Canada will be safe for me to visit for Christmas this year. I miss my family and friends, and the snow.
The man on the painting is Leonard Cohen, a famous Canadian songwriter who passed away in 2016. If you want to practice your English you could try listening to a few of his songs.
Have a good day.
I learned most of my English through comic books and cartoons.
How about you?
15 Years ago, Batman Begins not only changed comic book movies but Hollywood forever. It made reboots and reimagining franchises in a more realistic light common place, and it’s one of my favorite movies.

Did you know that I have my own t-shirt brand?
I'm currently having a 50% discount on my Trà Sữa shirt, bringing the cost down to 50k.
Let me know if you're interested!
I met Jamie in Laos. We were both visiting our good Lao friend there, Mr. Ken.
Jamie has since moved to Spain and became an English teacher.
Here's his new Youtube channel. He speaks slowly and clearly, I hope you find it useful.
Have a good Sunday!

Do any of you know of a nice and quiet coffee shop where they also offer good food?
