Aahhh no problem whatsoever...
She's the, The military did not commit genocide against the Rohingya lady...
I like to think of her as, The military did not put her in jail lady...

It's just a very complicated problem. You know?
There is "fear on both sides". She fears the military, but they fear her too.
She has very "powerful global reach".
It's just not so black and white at all...

In your 1st headline, I am confused with "sentences" which is used in the present tense. Isn't this ungrammatical? Pretty sure that's not how The Present Tense is used most of the time.

Learning English from this news is sad. Our Leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, is unlawfully sentenced to 4 years in prison with fraud evidence by the Junta. We need justice. Actual perpetrator is terrorist Junta. We never stop for justice. The Junta must be accountable for what he has committed.

Hi both of them, Hello Everyone
Once again , I have no choice bur to note the similarity between English and French.
The word "sentences" refers to both sentences and judgements.
In France, we use oust to get rid of someone. "Get the hell out of here ! Go away !
We use the word incitation instead of incitement . However, incitation does not have a pejorative connotation like in English.
I don't agree with your sentences ; I guess if Aung San Suu Kyi incited her people, it was a reasonable incitement. Not something bad. Anyway, sometimes we must stand up for our rights and disobey the laws because it is the laws that are unfair

Actually, she is not guilty at all because her trial was not open and transparent to local and international media. She is just a hostage during the coup created by military juntas.

Awesmos!It's absolutely interesting to me. I'm learning a lot of stuff. Thanks so much.


10.12.21 в 13:11

Ur lesson is a good one indeed but for us, native Burmese, it's a really hard lesson to learn as we know it isn't the truth. She just went outside for a few minutes to wave at her civilians before election and military coup just alleged her for these few minutes. It is really unfair. Though we all know about cruel junta, the world and other countries're still watching comfortably with popcorns :3
Whatever we will fight back them till the end. Most difficult lesson for me to learn till the end ヅ

I've never expected to learn English with this sad story. But don't say that Aung San Suu Kyi is guilty.

Hlaing Min Thu

08.12.21 в 13:19

She’s not the former leader. She is still the legitimate leader of our country, Myanmar who have won the 2020 election fairly while the military junta violently threw and take power for their sakes.

Thiago Rodrigues

08.12.21 в 12:40

Interesting words that you taught today. But the one that really drew my attention is the phrasal verb TELL OFF, that Roy said casually.

"My boss is always trying to find some reason for him to have the right to tell me off. He doesn't like me, but he can't fire me without the authorization from other seniors managers"

Thank You BBC!!


08.12.21 в 12:24

For everyone who is watching this video,I would like to request is to help Myanmar. Myanmar is really in danger because of the military junta. I've heard news from Myanmar people that they are in really helpless ,so I wish we could help Myanmar citizens as much as we could. I'm soo sorry for them. It's the most cruel thing that military did to Myanmar leader Aung Sang Su Kyi.

08.12.21 в 04:16

Aung San Su Kyi is kind of a good leader who is very kind to the public. Now, we Myanmar People have difficult times facing armed force's terrible assassinations. Myanmar military is the worst one in the world and murders thousands of people. Please pray for Myanmar! Thank you for your presentation.

She is not a former state counsellor.
She is a state counsellor of Myanmar.
The Law is under the control of Military junta so he can do everything what he wants!
You should used that Myanmar junta sentences .......... . Not 'Myanmar court sentences.... '
Military junta doesn't represent to Myanmar. He is a kind of terrorists who kills Myanmar civilians and burns them alive!!
Ps: The sentence is commuted to 2 years.
