If you study english like me, by yourself, I think really important you do it:
Create the legend for some videos, some times!
Why? Because to do it, you are obliged to listen to and watch, obviously, the same thing once, twice, thrice or much more times, to know exactly what the people are talking, I mean, you have interpret what is present through this.

So, a good exercise, isn’t it? 😀
I think so!

Well, I chose a english lesson video, which I like so much.
I’m don’t just talking about that one, but I like so much of this method present by Michael F. Marzio, administrator of RealEnglish’s channel on YouTube, together with some his friends and teachers who he knows.

But, before I begin, let me do a little observation here: As I am a self-student of English, sure, I can make some mistakes here. If you see something wrong in my translate, please, let me know it, through the field comments. Thank you! =D

Ok… Let’s get started! 😉

If you wacth the video first and follow the text after this, go ahead…
I think it’s better, by the way…
So, play.
