Hi Taytana,

I live in Manchester, United Kingdom. It rains all the time here. crying I have not seen the sun in ages. In the summer it hardly ever gets hot and normally summer temperatures are between 18-24 degrees Celsius. I imagine that in Jordan it is a lot hotter in summer! What is the weather like in winter?

Your text is excellent. I just have the following suggestions

1. The weather is very dusty in Jordan, and the wind is strong, how is the weather in your countries? - The weather is very dusty in Jordan,  [no comma needed here] and the wind is strong.  how is the weather What is the weather like in your countries?

Spring in the UK is a really nice time - your Professor is right. I particularly like walking through bluebell woods in the spring. (Providing it is not raining of course haha)

Wow! How are you finding the phonetics course you are taking? I bet it is tricky.

Well,I would recommend the following

1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/features/pronunciation/shortvowel7 = for the short vowel sounds in British English (videos are really good and clear :-) )

2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/features/pronunciation/longvowel5 = for the long vowel sounds in British English

The good thing about those videos is that they are completely free to watch smiley and go into a lot of detail.

Make sure you practice as much as you can.

Let me know if you have more questions or want further advice / suggestions?

That's a great word for me to learn :) How do you write it in Arabic?

I am becoming more familiar with how Arabic words are written and am making a lot of progress. I am following this YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3ajksmd0Vo

and the teacher is great!

Hi Tatyana, I hope you are well. 

The weather is changing quite a bit all the time over here. It's changing for the better now that the worst of winter is gone, but we did have a few storms to contend with a few weeks ago. 3 in a row!

As someone else asked above, it would be interesting to have a longer text from you, so we can give you even more feedback for you to work on. Maybe a paragraph on the weather in your country? 

I look forward to reading it!
