I’m believed the first one or early bird to comment .TIPs is required by law even the service is very poor?

Friday, September 27th 2013

I got 7 correct out of 10. I also think No.8 question’s answer is incorrect. Your worm waiter is cute :)
Thank you, James.

Friday, September 27th 2013

I solved 10 Question correct .give me 8 only correct !!

Friday, September 27th 2013

#8 the answer is wrong, isn´t food to homeless, is like a pack

Friday, September 27th 2013

I got 8. Not bad for a beginner.

Friday, September 27th 2013

    come on !

    Thursday, January 9th 2014

That was a great class, James! Your classes are always fun. I had so much trouble with tips in the U.S! I never knew the proper way of paying them… leaving them on the table? Paying them to the cashier? I was giggling here when you talked about leaving coins. A friend of mine told me that it was rude. I didn’t know.

Friday, September 27th 2013

Would you like have some appetizer, Mr.James? That draw of waiter looks so funny, XD

Friday, September 27th 2013

Prix Fixe : a free meal for homeless people????!!!
Fix that please, teacher James!!! Your lesson is so helpful!! I really enjoyed learning about useful vocabulary for restaurants!!!! Thanks a lot!!!!!

Friday, September 27th 2013

Very good lesson thank dear sir JAMES!
WISH YOU A VERY GOOD DAY AHEAD!

Friday, September 27th 2013

Hello sir,Actually you didn’t do only a lesson;other than that,you made our hungry.Thank you for your lesson.Good luck!

Friday, September 27th 2013

I really like this kind of your lessons.
Basic Vocabulary for Shopping for example, I have spent 2 weeks to watch it since its released day. Hopefully James teacher will submit more videos like these.

Saturday, September 28th 2013

excellent …..

Saturday, September 28th 2013

“What does is mean to “substitute” something in a meal?” This Q Can i use “does is” together? i ain’t clear about this. Thanks

Saturday, September 28th 2013

you are just amazing
wow
u r great guys :)

Saturday, September 28th 2013

This time I got 9 correct out of 10. I improved! Ya~y :D
Thank you, James and Mr. E(cute name).

Saturday, September 28th 2013

    I got 8 correct out of 10

    Tuesday, October 1st 2013

really funny teacher,,and you drew the waiter looks like a snake LOL

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Thank you for lesson , really useful words and sentences. Can I say ‘idioms’ in this context ? Have a good day !

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Yeah, it must be a programming error with prix fixe.

Now, I know that as a sophisticated english man that you are, you would not end your meal with dessert and coffee, but with a table of cheeses and some brandy instead. I’ve been a waiter in central London time ago and I also know about tipping habits. Brits are not the worst, germans spanish, italians ……. not tipping culture.
Nice lesson mate, well done.

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Thanks Jame for teaching.I got 8 correct out of 10.I think you made mistake about No.8 questaion’s answer.prix fixe is appetizer(starter),main course,dessert all together for one price.

Saturday, September 28th 2013

The question №8 is incorrect…
Thank you,the lesson is really interesting and useful!

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Hello James, thanks for your time to teach us English. For me, you talk a little bit fast. thanks again

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Hi cuong ta! I agree about 8th question . However it’s a great lesson! James is always so much fun! :)

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Hi James, I am an American ELS teacher currently working in China. Loved this lesson (and several others!As teachers we sometimes struggle with fresh and creative ways to present material or breath life into tired lessons. Thanks for waking up my inner artist and providing a fresh perspective!

Saturday, September 28th 2013

    hi,where at you staying ?

    Thursday, January 9th 2014

What does is mean to “substitute” something in a meal?
*** Hello Engvid there’s a typo mistake in this question. It’s not “is”, should be “it”.

Saturday, September 28th 2013

    Thanks! Fixed.

    Sunday, September 29th 2013

Hi guys,
*
I got 9 out of 10, but I’m sure that the answer for the question below is wrong. The answer should be ” A special where you get your appetizer, main course, and dessert all included for one price.”, and not ” A free meal given to homeless people.”
*
*
*
What is “prix fixe”?

* French food with special prix sauce.
* A special where you get your appetizer, main course, and dessert all included for one price.
* A free meal given to homeless people.

Saturday, September 28th 2013

    Hi lisa28,

    I also got 9 out of 10,becouse of this Question.

Hi, Mr. James, I like your way of teaching and thanks alot for these valuable information, by the way I’m from Saudi Arabia and we would like you to visit us one day to have our special dessert in the middle of the desert. :)

Saturday, September 28th 2013

cool, Thanks James

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Saturday, September 28th 2013

Saturday, September 28th 2013

If you go to Mac Donald,and order a combo#3 and you tell the sale person,you want to order #3 prix fixe and I think they understand what you are talking about.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Hi, James. I got 100 points!, after that I read the comments of my classmates about the eight question, then I write a 100 on my record!. Hahahaha A funny class with a fun teacher!.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Dear James. Thanks a lot for this video.
I went with my wife to a Chinese restaurant in Jakarta. After we asked for the bill, we checked the bill. I saw all the food we ate and to my surprise I saw one of the food described as ‘kitchen food’. (I made a photo of it).
So could you maybe tell me what is kitchen food? Otherwise, I am very curious where the other food we ate had been prepared…

Sunday, September 29th 2013

    I’m not sure, but maybe it’s a kind of normal, but good, food, made with everyday products which are used on the everyday cook.

    Thursday, October 3rd 2013

good lesson..thank you

Sunday, September 29th 2013

it is very nice keep it

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Question 8 is mistake, but this lesson was excelent.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Hi James. Very useful lesson. It would be interesting that “prix fixe” be “a free meal for homeless people”! LOL.
You’re a great teacher, and maybe you already know what I’m gonna write, I guess it’ll help you remind: phonetically, “prix fixe” in French sounds “/pRi/ /fiks/. When “fixe” is an adjective, it sounds “/fiks/”, and when it is the past participle of the verb “fixer”, it sounds “/fikse/”. Thank you et bonne continuation :)

Sunday, September 29th 2013

James,
great points about an useful knowledge!
Thank you

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Hey it was great lesson. thank you
i like your way in teaching. keep it up man.

Hi James,

thank you for your lesson.

How many percent of the bill must be added if tax is not included?

Appropriate tip should be 10-20 % of the bill before tax of after?

British people don´t give tips only in North America of also in Britain? :-)

Thank you

Friday, October 18th 2013

hey James:
first of — your style is amazing!! just love it.
Even after few years in Canada now, I still find this site very, very useful — kudos to the whole team!

Now, to my question — it’s rather about site design, but I’d appreciate if you can answer — is there a way to track the lessons which one took? I find it rather inconvenient to scan through the whole list of video, and filter out the titles that I’ve already seen.

Search feature is great, but it doesn’t tell you whether you reviewed this video before or not.

Appreciate your comments.
Thanks so much for all you guys do!!!

Sunday, October 20th 2013

    It’s one of the features we’d love to have when it’s time for a new site redesign!

    Sunday, October 20th 2013

thank you

Tuesday, October 22nd 2013

Tuesday, October 22nd 2013

Thursday, October 24th 2013

Oh, I forgot to ask a question in the comment above. What is ” entree”? Is it the same of “starter” Thank you!

Thursday, October 24th 2013

    An entree is a main dish! Entrees have more food and are more expensive than starters.

    Saturday, October 26th 2013
