3.well, my name is nice. SO it was chosen by many parents in Vietnam.
4.well, I have not think about it. But if yes.I like to change to Khanh Linh.

Dear Simon,
How is your day going? I want to ask you a question.
When the topic in speaking part 2 is describe an interesting traditional in your country,should i tell something about traditional festival or traditional custom or anything else?How am i to answer it?
The sincerity anticipates your reply.

Dear Simon
I feel disappointed about myself because I can not get 6 for listening. I did many tests in Melbourne. I did practice all listening tests in Cambridge book (7,8,9,10,11). I do not why I can not get any sound in real exams. It is unbelievable. Cambridge listening tests are more easier than real exams. Cambridge listening tests is clear, it is easy for me to follow what they are talking about. Please give me some advice

1) How did your parents choose your name?
My father had a friend who was very successful, not only in her career but also her family life. Hence, my father chosen her name to name me with his wish that I would be successful like her.
2) Does your name have any special meaning?
As I told you before, my name is not a name physically, it contains my father's love and hope.
3) Is your name common or unusual in your country?
You can find many people have the same name with mine, it is common name in my country.
4) If you could change your name, would you?
when I was a little girl, I hated my name because it sounded not interesting, I wanted more attractive name. But since I knew the reason my father chosen this name to give me, I am sure that I never want change my name any more because it proved that how much my father loved me and I am very proud to tell with everyone the story about my name.

Hi Simon:Thanks a lot for your kindly everyday-lesson,it really helps me a lot. But I still have several questions:1 In part 3 of the speaking test, the answer structure you suggest is: answer, explain,example, alternative, so what is the meaning of “alternative” here?the opposite? I tried to search online, but I still confused about that.2 the video lessons can not be used in my country, I asked my friend in the UK to download for me, but unfortunately, she said it can not be download there.So whether it is possible for you to upload the video in another version which can be used in most of the countries in the future?Thanks very much.

Its very helpful answers. 👍🏻
