Hello everyone, I apologize for the delay on this! The answer to the "What is This Called?" items is finally up on the blog. I'm posting the photo in case you haven't seen it yet. The items are screwdrivers but the question refers to the tips. You can find the answer on the SpeakAlley blog here: https://goo.gl/uUyyUn

My session today has been cancelled. Keep an eye here on the trending page to see if Suresh will have one. Have a great day!

Hello Everyone, I have an "assignment" for you to help me to help you! I would like everyone to to take a photograph of of where they work (or some other place) that has items in it that you either know the English term for or would like me to give you the English term for. Post the photo here and I will use it in a session and we will learn these terms and their native pronunciation. These must be photos that you have taken since you will need to give me "permission" to use the photo in a session. Even if you know all the terms, I would still love for you to share the photo with the group and tell us the name of the things we see as there are probably others who would like to know.

Suggestion for building your vocabulary: If you would like to know the name of an item in English, post a photo of it here on the Trending page and I will answer you in a comment on it. If you need help saying something, post a message here on the Trending page describing what you want to say, with words you do know and I'll do my utmost best to help you! Don't be afraid to post an incomplete thought; together we will figure out the best way to say it, even if it takes a few comments to figure it out. :) I look forward to helping! To post on the Trending page, simply go to the Posts tab at the top. To post a photo, it is best to use the "Upload a photo" tab in the "Share my story" area.

What is This Called? - Yes these are called a "screwdriver". My question is: what are the names of these two very common screwdrivers?

Hello everyone! Today we will discuss a topic taken from the TOEFL writing topics: "When people succeed, it is because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with success." Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.  Your responses will not be timed (unless you want it to be). Participation is not required, but makes for a more beneficial session; this is just a chance for us to learn from each other in a relaxed setting. Watch the Event countdown at the top right under my horse picture or check the calendar for my schedule and convert the time to your time zone (it is in GMT/UTC). Take care all; talk to you soon! :)

Hello everyone! I just wanted to remind you of our session tomorrow (Saturday). I would like to use this opportunity to ask you all to think of specific challenges that you are having with your speaking, reading or writing skills. I would like you to discuss them with me in our next session; I want to learn how I can best help you so I need your input to do this. If you can't make it to the session, you can post them here in a comment or send me a message in my SpeakAlley inbox. Remember, the more you can tell me about your difficulties, the more I can design sessions to help you. You can check the time for the session on the SpeakAlley calendar, just convert it to your time zone. Take care all!

Our next session will be on Saturday at GMT/UTC 2:30pm, please convert this to your time zone. I would like it if you could tell me, at our next session, what your biggest challenge is in speaking/writing/reading English is. I will use this information to structure interactions that are more helpful to each of you. Please let me know at the next session or in a comment below. As time allows, we use a writing question from the TOEFL test, in our Saturday session. Talk to you soon!

Thank you Kushni and Livio for joining Suresh and me today. I learned something new that I didn't know-there is no yellow line, only a white one, that divides the different directions of traffic.
