Thursday, November 6th 2014

Sorry,Can you help me to understand better the difference between clean up and wash. When I was in Ireland, my ex host family Always told their songs to clean up or whas up dishes then when they had to clean their bedroom the only way it was simply sort out your room. Then when they used the washing machine (for clothes) they used only the word wash. Sorry for my bad English I’m still trying to learn it. I hope you can get the meaning …

Thursday, November 6th 2014

James you have Northern California ACCENT. but I’m wondering and have Curiosity about you,
what is your original nationality james, are you American citizen or canadian citizen?
also How about your childhood tough or was good
did you exposure before in your life for discrimination or persecution based on race or color , and how you act about this issue?
and i hope some day you do a little film documentary on youtube about james life from the moment you wake up from Bed until you go to sleep (your regular life day)
I’m a big fan of you since I was back home (Egypt) until I Moved to USA RECENTLY.
I’m apologize for my English beginner level and the way I write english.

waiting for reply soon
thank you,

Basem

Thursday, November 6th 2014

Hi james
I want to ask you something about underneath, beneath, below, under; what’s the difference among them and the correct use.
thanks
greetings from Colombia!

Thursday, November 6th 2014

i take the full mark
thanks James
then i have to go to doing my laundry

Thursday, November 6th 2014

i wanna training my english, so, if anyone wants too, add me on Skype @preezyh, thanks

Thursday, November 6th 2014

Thanks
Got 100%…Nice Teaching with Friendly Explanation.

Friday, November 7th 2014

Hi James! How are you?
Cleaning is a lot of work for me. So my room is kind of mess almost always. There are many stuffs all around the room such as CD, books, comics, cables, guitar picks, and so on.
By the way, the vacuum cleaner you brought looks like R2-D2. Actually, I have a trash can of R2-D2. His(I don’t know which sex R2 is, though) head can be opened and from there, garbages can be put into. Isn’t it cool?
Come to think of the words, sweep, mop and clean up, they’re also used as the terms of baseball, aren’t they? Someday, I’d like you to teach us about terms of baseball. However, I know that there are few need to know them for many people though.
Thank you for your useful lesson.

Thanks a lot, James! I love the way you teach. I found very difficult to learn a new language, but with your funny comments during the lessons, it gets easier. All the best!
