Guys, I was looking for online teachers on youtube and I found a really good one:
http://it.youtube.com/user/duncaninchina
The last channel I posted wasn't good like this: there were just some videos, to attend the lessons you had to pay...
But Mr Duncan postes video almost every week, and everything he does on web is free...
Her speaking too is understable and he's funnier than Mr. Steve...
Click on the "Learning English Video" playlist: I found the first quite ununderstable because he talks using a pet too (eheheh), but I'm watching the others and I like them very much.
It's a good way to improve in english, because I think the biggest difficulty to improve is the understanding.
I do an example: in the fourth video he uses the word "freezing" quit fastly: I didn't know that word and I didn't understand it... After that I didn't understand nothing anymore, because I missed a part of the speech... So, I played back the video and I listened that word; I searched it on a dictonary and I understood everything he said after.
Sometimes english people talk too fast and we don't understand what they say, if we know that words too... So it's very important to listen people talking..
Oh my god, how much of things I wrote...
Ok, I must stop it now :D

That's real! Luckily when Jean-Luc phone us, and, as usually I'm the only one who answer (Why always me? :cry: ) he speaks slowly because probably realize my difficulties (and he's french, so his way to speak is more similar to italian one... and he represent a very important purchaser for our work! :shock: ).

When J-Luc calls, of course, my work-associates, if they are in the same room with me, start writing on papers some sentences to give me a boost ( 14_39 14_4 ), like "You're awesome!", "We are all with you!" and so on.

For Christmas I've been in Lecce with my relatives... it was quite a good lunch and I had the oppourtunity to talk with my uncles, as we can't meet during the rest of the year (safe for Easter and summer ;)).
I don't know what I'm going to do for New Year's Eve: maybe I will meet my friends (unless they want to go to some mega-dinner that costs 50 euros for plate!) or I'll stay with my parents.
I'd rather be at home with my boyfriend, but he's going to have relatives at home for that day :(

I'm afraid you can't see your boyfriend for the New Year's Eve... but you know, after that day you'll have an all new year to see you each other :)
I don't know too what I'm gonna do tomorrow for the new year's eve, I think I will stay at home.. My parent's don't agree to go out that night, they're quite paranoic... They say that everybody's drunk, everybody shoots and that is pretty dangerous... Yeah, in their mind we live in far west...
My sister is gone to a New Year's party for the first time when she was 19.... :?
But I wanna think positive, I think at the new year and all the new chances...

...this topic is really a good idea, so I can also improve my English by practicing it. So I wanted to tell you about a move that I learned recently in the pc version:....Well, when Lara goes down to pass over the tunnels you can roll it so many times by pressing the shutter ("scatto" in italian, i don't know how to translate this word), so you can go any faster if there was a time trial as the first level, at the beginning of "prison in Nevada ".... But you can use this move only in the remaking of 4 onwards.
dO YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT IT?...

You can translate "scatto" with "dash".

I din't know this move for Lara. Thanks!

53_29 nevermind Greywolf,thank you very much, you are always very kind, then...thank you for clarifying the word dash, I didn't know about it, hehe!
However,do you understand how the move is? It's so cool, especially in time trials can be very useful, you know ..... but it works only in the remaking of TR4, maybe.... in "prison in nevada" without this move i could'nt continue...
