Hi, everybody! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently.

Today, I will continue to talk about the English words my students love. 

Later, you will improve your grammar with a point of view lesson, so don’t miss out because it’s worth it!

If you haven’t heard the first episode on this topic, I recommend you do so.

So, my idea for today is to comment on some of those words. I think it will be fun.

Like in the previous episode, I will be commenting on the English words that my students have liked the most.

Okay, so, here’s the first one:

Faithfully (Jessica Alonso)

My students have always been faithful, from the moment I’ve started teaching English. Thank you everyone, for being faithful!

Yours faithfully.

Skills (Issa Capp)

Let me ask you a question.

How do you improve your English-speaking skills?

This one was easy. Right? You improve your speaking skills by listening to my premium courses and my podcast every day.

Peace (Guillermo Navío)

Who doesn’t want peace?

Peace is the absence of hostility and violence; it’s a concept of friendship and social harmony.

If peaceful conditions predominate in a society, all activities take place in their proper form.

Energy (Puentes Andres)

We all want to have more energy. If you don’t have enough of it, you can’t work or study, so, if we don’t have time to sleep, we choose to drink a lot of coffee.

Delightful (Richard Moreno Diaz)

Delightful is something or someone who is very pleasant, attractive, or enjoyable.

Examples:

“What a delightful day!”

“What a delightful surprise!”

“I wish you a delightful evening.”

“What a delightful person!”

I’d say that “delightful” is elegant and sophisticated, and you can use it in so many ways.

Beautiful (Saga Saint)

Beautiful is such an amazing word, but unfortunately, we tend to overuse it.

Let’s learn some other ways to say beautiful:

Instead of beautiful, say:

Appealing

Gorgeous

Stunning

Ravishing

Pretty

Lovely

Dazzling

Attractive

Good-looking.

Amazing (Marcela García)

Amazing is something that causes great surprise.

Some synonyms are: impressive, excellent, or astonishing.

Examples:

“What an amazing picture you have here.”

“Ann was very impressive in the interview.”

“Her facility for languages is astonishing.”

“He congratulated me for my excellent exam results.”
