    - Where are you from?
    I grew up in Bedfordshire, a region near London!
    - How many languages do you speak?
    English is my mother tongue, but I also speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning Italian. You can see a video of me speaking Spanish here: goo.gl/4RVY0O
    - Which camera do you use?
    I use the Canon 60D with a 50mm lens (goo.gl/T2T045)
    - Which microphone do you use?
    I use the SONY ECMCS3 - Very affordable and great value for money:
    goo.gl/uzuIBh (Note that you will need this mic adapter if you want to use it with your iphone - goo.gl/oNtEhN)
    - What shade of lipstick are you wearing?
    I wear Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Sheer Lip Tint in Berry. You can find it here: goo.gl/rjREuM
    - Which editing software do you use?
    I use Final Cut Pro X
    - Which grammar book do you recommend?
    I completely recommend English Grammar in Use: goo.gl/S3DIlN
    - Can you recommend any books that will help me improve my English?
    I always recommend 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' (goo.gl/7vGLDY) as it is written in the first person from the point of view of an autistic teenager and it does not use very complicated language. Some of it is also based in London which I like.
    - Can you recommend a British TV Series for me to watch and improve my British English pronunciation?
    Absolutely! I highly recommend 'Broadchurch' (goo.gl/5qdWbJ) which is a FANTASTIC crime drama based in a small village in the South of England. The actors are brilliant and it has won lots of awards!

    Chaos is pronounced "haos" in its original language which is Greek. So the Spanish and Italian accents are way more similar than the English ones

    Actually, it should not be "chewsday", it should be "tyoosday", but I appreciate it can be heard as "chewsday" when spoken quickly. I also think "cunfa-tble' (4 syllables) is perfectly fine when using emphasis.

    The following mispronounced words annoy me, maybe you can deal with these - mischievous (often pronounced mischievious), buoy (not boooey), pedestal (not pedestool), escape (not excape), and my all time pet hate - drawing (not drawring!!). Love your videos, thank you.

    Why not just standardize English Spelling, why u pronounce things not the same way you spell ?
    I cant believe we the world are REALLY STUPID for embracing a chaotic language like English as Lingua Franca.
    At first I thot English is the best language in the world, but as I realised Malay language is a very beautiful language. Pronounced as its spelt and very standardised.
