I intended to write my graduate thesis this summer at my college, while i didn’t make it. It was too hot to live in my dormitory since there weren’t air conditioners here. Finally I went to home and took my little brothers a 5 days’ trip to Beijing and Tianjin. We went to the sea world to see marine lives. Also took Ferris wheel in Tianjin which is called “tianjin eye”. Besides we watched the national flag-raising ceremony at tian’an men square. We got up at about4:00, sleepy of course but also proud and inspired when I saw the flag flying in the sky. Have to stop here

"Vacation" is called "holiday" in the British Commonwealth.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Good to note! And in the U.S., "holiday" refers to special dates on the calendar, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

What can't you do with irregular verbs that you can do with regular verbs? This could be the question that's answered in a 'Regular Verbs verses Irregular Verbs' video. It's the subject that appears often within verb tenses videos, but would have enough information to merit a video all to itself.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
True. Irregular verbs can be presented/discussed from different angles. That might be for more advanced students, though. We'll see. Ah, grammar. There's always something new to talk about. :)

Some children having a summer vacation and some children have being killed other side of the World.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
It's true. My children are becoming more aware of conditions around the world and world politics. I often remind them to be thankful for all they have and all they can do. I think it's important we all live life to the fullest while being appreciative of the opportunities we have.

Hi unfortunately I didn't go anywhere. However, I invite Jennifer and her children in India for the next vacation.
Nayeem Akhtar (1 year ago)
JenniferESL If I get a visa then I would love to go to the USA. As I am learning English, so it would be really exciting to talk with native speakers where I don't have any choice to speak other than English. You may plan a trip to India and I am sure you won't get disappointed.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Thank you for the invitation to India. How amazing it would be to see your country and meet new people! We've be fortunate to plan some exciting vacations within the U.S. I'd never seen Mount Rushmore before. I'd like the children to see Washington, D.C. in the future. Where would you like to visit?
Very nice video. Wonderfu kids. I love you very much indeed. A

I would have loved to have went to hockey camp.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Agreed. It's a lot of responsibility to defend the net.
stunninglad1 (1 year ago)
I love to watch it, Jennifer. I also love field hockey.. It's a brilliant game, but I never fancied the job of goalkeeper.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
There are different hockey programs in the summer. Alex is doing a mix of games, group training, and one-on-one lessons. We've grown into a hockey family. I enjoy watching his team play during the regular season, and as a family we follow NHL games. Do you play ice hockey?
Abdelhadi laafar (1 year ago)
Thank you teacher

You're welcome. Thanks for studying with us.

t. feles (1 year ago)
In my student days, I struggled to memorize those irregular verbs😓. Now I found some patterns of them somehow. Kids remember those changes without thinking of grammar, don't they? Hope they will go back to school in a good shape. Thanks, kids!
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
The kids make grammar mistakes, too. But with practice and correction from parents and teachers, they learn. Identifying patterns can be helpful. For example, sing - sang - sung / ring - rang - rung. But did you know that the verb "cling" has only two forms? Cling - clung. Thanks for the kind comment!
Cesar Perez Parada (1 year ago)
Honestly I spent my summer working full-time, kinda sad I know, great lesson, very useful, I also spent some of my spare time watching JenniferEsL cool videos, cool lessons, smart sweet kids.
Cesar Perez Parada (1 year ago)
JenniferESL yeah I think so :), oh and thank you.. :) here we are.. :)
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Working and earning money is a perfectly decent way to spend a summer vacation. In my student days, I had a number of different jobs. I can't tell you how many hours of babysitting I did. Hundreds! Thanks for taking a little time to study with Alex and Natasha today.
Nice Video Jen...Your Kids Are Adorable...Congratulations!...

How can I improve my language? Who wants to help me? I just need to find a person with whom I can talk on any topics
02H delirious (1 year ago)
JenniferESL Can JenniferESL can u answer my question? I've heard from one part of the people that it's better to watch films and serials without subtitles, but the other part said that need to watch with it. What can you recommend?
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Hi. Hope you'll also visit me on Twitter and Facebook. There's additional practice there.

Hola Jenni! It looks like U having a super duper summer vacation 🎆🎆 que chido! Why do they called it Badlands and the devils tower? Did Bad things happen in there? Bad stuff happens to turist there? Those lands don't look bad at all, they look beautiful. Is that a swimming pool in your house? You have an amazing house :D I love English grammar bc is so practical, with Portugues I'm struggling with the irregular verbs bc they changed a lot, It's driving me crazy 😑 hahahaha, they changed way more that in Spanish. I have tought that maybe I'am never gonna learn this languague. But I have seen people speaking Portugues so fluently (people whose native languagues are not a romance one) and that has encouragued me to learn bc my first tongue it is a romance one indeed :D P.S 1 your kids are changing from cute to very good looking 👧👦 I hope you will not be a jeaulous mama ;) P. S2 I loved the video, your summer vacation video, but it could have been longer. You forget to add the crazy get in the way wild cows 😂😂😂😂 See ya!
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Hey there, Marcela. I like your curiosity. "The Badlands" have long been known for being difficult to travel through. When European settlers started to expand westward into Native American territory, they recognized both the beauty and the harshness of the land. Devil's Tower has several different legends attached to it. Personally, I like the tale of the boy who became a bear and scratched the sides of the tower as he tried to climb it. Indeed, both Devil's Tower and the Badlands are beautiful and grand. I'm so happy I got to see these places. Backyard swimming pools are quite common in New England towns. There are both above-ground and in-ground pools. It's a nice way to cool off, as Alex said, but it's also social. It's how friends and neighbors spend time together in the summer. I only studied Portuguese for a few months. I didn't get very far. I remember how challenging the verbs were! Just learning to use BE was a test. Thank you for the kind words about the kids. I wanted to add more to the video, but I wanted this lesson out before other kids go back to school. Some young language learners might benefit from knowing a few ways to talk about summer vacation. :) Today we went to an amusement park. We rode some fun (and wet) rides! Take care.

Hi,Jennifer how are you your kids are beautiful..good job
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Thank you very much!
Marcelo Miguel Bazan (1 year ago)
Hi Jennifer: You're not being a good mother, you know?. You can't make a boy say the past of the verb WEAR, it sounds RUDE (if you know what I mean). Haha, no, I'm joking. Just playing with homophones & how things can be misunderstood. Your kids are very funny. Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday) Marcelo.
Marcelo Miguel Bazan (1 year ago)
Oops, I guess you didn't understand my point. The past of WEAR can be "a very immoral old-fashioned woman". Even Bart & Milhouse had a problem with this word. Cheers :)
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Hi there, Marcelo! I was already testing Alex's patience when I made him name the four U.S. presidents at Mount Rushmore. ;) I'm happy he had enough energy left to say a few of the verb forms at the end. Ha ha.
Clecius Ferreira (1 year ago)
They are awesome kids. God bless you.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Thank you, Clecius. Kind wishes to you.

Hi Natasha. Hi Alex. Great job! I love Kid to kid English. You're lucky. What a wonderful summer vacation! I didn't do anything special this summer. I had to work. Please, say hello to your mom for me. I'll see you next time. Bye!
JenniferESL Have a nice weekend!

This summer WAS the time of my life. I WENT to different cities and SAW various landscapes in Yemen. I HAD a road trip with my family. It TOOK us a whole week to finish the journey. We also CAUGHT some fish for fun. It GAVE us unusual memories.
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Wow. Yemen must have been exciting to see. Did you eat the fish you caught? I'm glad you came home with special memories!
Ra'ed (1 year ago)
It's a stunning video for kids, but I didn't expect not to see you at all, Jennifer.
Ra'ed (1 year ago)
JenniferESL Hi, Jennifer. Thanks for the reply. I'll be waiting for your next video. By the way, you are not an old lady. You still young and active. :)
JenniferESL (1 year ago)
Hi Ra'ed. I usually stay off camera for Kid to Kid English. I figure if other school age kids are watching, they don't want to see an old lady like me. ;) They get enough instruction from adults in school. I'll be in the next video for a different playlist. Take care!
