I’m studying almost every day through these EndVid lessons and learning a lot. Maybe one day I may be speaking English fluently with your help and then I will be able to exchange ideas with all of you, Canadians, Americans, Britishes, and all the world.

Excuse me by liking to practice the lesson’s contents here. However, I’m sincerely expressing my feelings and reality with these words.

I wanna have other quizez, WHAT should I do?

Saturday, August 8th 2015

9/10 – My mistake: You can “study” a lot from reading books.

Hello, Mr. James and Mr. E. (I’m your fan James’ [tipsy] buddy… hehe). My name is Paulo and I am studying English (and hopefully learning it well). By the way, thank you so much Mr. James for all your hard work – your videos are fantastic. I am from Brazil, so my native language is Portuguese (Brazilians do not speak Spanish as a second language, most of them do not know Spanish at all. Actually, some Brazilians can understand Spanish because it is quite close, but not enough to speak the language).

In Portuguese, specially in Brazil, there are two words that got different meanings (in a formal way), but Brazilians used to use them in the same situations. I am talking about the words “estudante” and “aluno.” The “estudante” is the person who studies the content of a class (in the classroom or at home or anywhere else): student. The “aluno” is the person that only attend school, but it does not actually mean that that person is studying what he/she is listening to or writing about or watching in the classroom (the mind is far away, only the body remains in the classroom). Some people used to say: “Don’t be an “aluno”, be a student. When you get home, review your notes.”

My question is: Do Americans have a word for those people that are only in the classroom (students that do not read or memorize things but only attend school – sometimes for fun)? Brazilians used to translate “estudante” and “aluno” equally to the word “studant.” Maybe I could say that better like this:

Don’t be an observer, be a student. When you get home, review your notes.
Don’t be a scholar, be a student. When you get home, review your notes.
Don’t be a schoolchild, be a student. When you get home, review your notes.
Don’t be a kid, be a student. When you get home, review your notes.

However, this video clarified my mind and I started to think that that sentence could be expressed this way too: “Don’t be a student, be a learner.” (Still not the same thing, but I think it sounds good… hehe)

Thank you for your time and patience! I really appreciate it!

Regards,
~ Paulo

Sunday, August 9th 2015

Your lesson is interesting. Thank you James.

Sunday, August 9th 2015

This lesson was really good. It clarified a lot about ‘maybe’ and ‘may be’ and so on.

Thanks a lot, James! It never ceases to be a pleasure to study here on EngVid. It brings a smile to my face when I grasp something about English that was confusing. I won’t get them wrong on the TOEFL or IELTS or whatever test I take. I haven’t seen anything about it yet, but it’ll come. :D I wanna master my grammar, vocabulary, etc first. :D

I’m very fond of your lessons. And you. =D Thx!

Sunday, August 9th 2015

8/10 “Every day is like Sunday”
First mistake. Gain knowledge = learn not study ??!
I thought learn = skills and study = knowledge.
Second. Mr. E snoring! Well, maybe is sleeping, it look like, possibly, as it sounds. Again mistake. On Everydays quiz I get 80% that’s ok.

Monday, August 10th 2015

Hello James,

Your lessons are grippingand trully motivatng!
I’m trying to watch you every morning and stay “tuned” all day long.
I’m curious if you could have a lesson about Canadian Engish. I’m moving to Canada soon and would like to know any catchy words to use. (Well, I watch Canadian channels online, but that would be more appealing to hear some tips from my teacher-motivator)
Hope you know some and could share.
Thank you for your time and energy!

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Sir James, All the way, out of the way, go out of (someone) way, (someone) way out of. and other expressions using “way” Thank you
