You’re hilarious James! Thanks for the great lesson!

Sunday, July 13th 2014

    Yeah, you’re right Cleomir; this is a distinctive feature on James’ videos.

    You know, my studio is a mess and to tell the truth I do not expect anyone to clean up after me.

    So, who is gonna clean up all this mess? I’d better do it before I take the quiz.

    By for now.

    Sunday, July 13th 2014

      The fourth option for question number 8 did really make me laugh (ass licking). This is a living proof that James is hilariously funny (LOL).

      8.- Winter is . . .So it is time to open the window again and do a little . . .(LOL).

      . . .or is it not laughing matter??????????

Hi James !
You are really cool guy !
I learn eglish using AJ Hoge method.
(of course you know him).
He advices to use TPR method – that’s you
do indeed !
Here is quotation from his article “TPR & Listen First” :
“TPR, was created by Dr. James Asher. TPR stands for
“Total Physical Response”. Learning a language through TPR approximates
the acquisition of your native language. This acquisition follows the
order of listening first, and then speaking”.
Was’t it a bit chore reading my comment ?
And a little err at last:
“…burglar (single !) broke … unfortunaly they (plural !)”. Am i right ?

Let me think in this way… It was time to do some chores for Mr.E, so he wanted to tidy up his desk, but he messed it up. He broken the cup and the water splashes out on the ground, then Mr.E went to get mop so he could clean the ground. Unfortunately he couldn’t find it and trashed everything. So the room became like a pigsty. —— And this is where this video got starts. :)
Great lesson, Mr.James, keep it up! :D

Hello,
I’m so please to visit this site again.
I have again some other question which I hope you could answer them well
What is the deference between linguistic competence and linguistic performance?
What is the distinction between descriptive and prescriptive grammar?
What is the distinction between constitutive and regulative rules in English?

Saturday, July 26th 2014

Very good lesson. I like it. Thx

Tuesday, July 29th 2014

I can not imagine what a funny lesson teacher James can creative with teacher Ronnie. That would be crying with laughter! Both of you with a wonderful sense of humor.And I noticed such ridiculous lessons better stick in my mind.I am enjoyed by this lesson. Thank you James!

Tuesday, July 29th 2014

Little story inspired on your lesson.
There is a room where no one except one cat lived, later this place was crowded by people, the party goes on. And place looks more like station for recycling botlles, plastic dishes,cans and other useless stuff but withiout any equipment installed. It’s easier burn it down than start cleaning up such pigstry. If hobgoblin lived there for a while – now he definitely signing papers for moving to another not-so-trashed house.
Tnank you for lesson James.
