I am a native speaker from Australia. I mainly speak British English.
This is glorious, I've been looking for "rosetta stone hebrew online" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Bonincoln Hebrew Handful - (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some super things about it and my cousin got amazing results with it.
Hello guys, let me give you one more website to improve your English "Engvid.com". I really think this one must be seen too. Eleven Canadians teachers provide over one thousand videos and lessons with different topics and levels, at the end of the lesson you can check up your understanding with a quiz.
A special thanks to Max for her exellent work and relevant suggestions...Keep on doing...
Hi, dear Max , I got trough all the sites which you introduced , many helpful , awesome , Elllo was very good for me the last two ones are full of idioms and slang " good job brain" and "stuff you should know" also nice but my English is not that much good to follow them, anyway thanks a lot, I think you are Aussie with those two beautiful cheek dimples , Good Luck :))
hi! i'm Heri from Indonesia. I love with your tips and suggestions in how to master in speak English fluently. I really want to learn how to speak englsih quicker and faster. I still straggle with my Pronunciation. thanks
Very useful references! Thank you so much. It's been a while since I wanted to know suggestions of podcasts and material. I already use Youglish a lot. My suggestions are ipa dictionary https://tophonetics.com, my dictionaries are Cambridge Dictionary and linguee, and my favorites podcast are freakonomics and Science Vs. I'm looking forward to it watch your next videos.
Great material as always! As I'm into photography, I'd like to recommend three youtube channels that I like a lot: The British one is Negative Feedback, very technical but brilliant, then the American one of Matt Day, which is maybe the one that covers more different topics and finally the one from Azriel Knight, a Canadian guy who really does a great job at making fantastic reviews on cameras and photographic grear.
Thanks, Alfonso! I admit I don't know much about photography (I can barely operate the camera I use to film my videos ;)), but YouTube really does cater to all interests. I love the name Negative Feedback!
Hi Max! Excellent sharing from your side. Please keep it regular. I'm a student of English Studies but recently developed an interest for Language Skills, the credit goes to you. Thumbs up for your efforts!
Thank you for the marvellous efforts , I do appreciate your videos and your channel which I find it quite informative .
There's a fantastic website called English7levels ,
Please have a look at it , I have been studying on this site for 10 months now ,i've reached to
the intermediate level so I think it's one of the best as well as deserves to be browsed.
Thank you very much indeed again and again 👌
Hi! Sorry for my slow reply. I sent you a message with the links via YouTube. (It's nothing personal, but I just prefer not to use email for privacy/security reasons.) If you haven't used messages on YouTube before, go to "Creator Studio", then "Community", then "Messages". https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/57955?hl=en
Hi Max. My favourite way to improve my English skills is to connect every day with "Doulingo". What is your opinion about his? Someone say that it's good for maintenance but not really for to enhance the level of knowledge. Could you give me your two cents? It's always a pleasure to watch your videos.
Hi! I'm a fan of Duolingo (I used it to start learning Italian). But I think it has some limitations. I think it's good for getting a basic understanding of how a language works, and then as maintenance, like you said. However, it doesn't offer much listening or speaking practice, and the vocabulary it a little limited. Anyway, that's my two cents ;). I'm glad you like my videos!
There are so many materials to enhance listening skill. I prefer these podcasts: Effortless English, Lets Master English, All Ears English, EnglishAnyone videos on youtube. But you also need to listen audio from natives to natives. I do like see reviews to Android phones in my language, and I do like to see them on english. Choose what you like.
Thanks for your comment! I've heard of a couple of those. Yes, I think Drew from EnglishAnyone does some excellent listening practice. And it's a great idea to watch YouTube videos that interest you in English :). I'm doing a video on that soon!
Hi, Max. Thank for your useful recommendations. You are absolutely right in suggesting to listen what we LIKE. I do like listening to your lessons. To be honest, not only yours. But your ones are in my 'top 3' (pls correct)
Thanks again! And I'm flattered to be in your top 3 :).
With (only minor) corrections:
Hi Max, Thanks for your useful recommendations. You are absolutely right in suggesting listening to what we LIKE. I do like listening to your lessons. To be honest, not only yours. But yours are in my 'top 3'. (pls correct)
NB: You hear lots of people say "your ones", "my one(s)", etc., but I don't believe it's grammatically correct. In any case, using mine/yours/his/hers etc. sounds "nicer" ;).
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.
My equity vs copiers chart.
The same holds true for the stock market in general.
