    I don’t know how could I leave a comment without reply anyone. Sorry about that.
    I have a question, what is the difference between “whole” and “every”? Becuase I thought that “whole” meant a complete grupo as “every”.
    Your videos are excellent, thank you in advance.

    Wednesday, May 29th 2013

      Whole means: the WHOLE pie.
      But every mean: every pie individually in a group!

Tuesday, September 14th 2010

Can I know whether you are teaching British English or American English

Wednesday, September 15th 2010

    Actually, James is Canadian. This means most of the expressions and grammar will be from American English, but sometimes the spelling of words will be British.

    Wednesday, September 15th 2010

how can i check the mistakes!!

Wednesday, September 15th 2010

    Please take the quiz again. There was a problem earlier, but it is fixed now.

    Thursday, September 16th 2010

Wednesday, September 15th 2010

hi,may i know where can i find the lesson which is teaching about “when can we join every with a noun and leave a space?” thanks in advance

Thursday, September 16th 2010

Hi, james it was really great, everytime i enjoys your lesson.Thanks
Could you please make a lesson or just explain me the difference by reply abouts the words-
tend to and intend to
these words confuse me always. Waiting for reply
thankyou very much

Thursday, September 16th 2010

    Hi Amy. James is busy, but I can answer this question for you. These two expressions ‘tend to’, and ‘intend to’, sound very similar, but they have different meanings.

    tend to – This is used to talk about something you do often. ‘tend’ here comes from the word ‘tendency’ — like a habit. For example: “I tend to bite my nails.” or “Amy tends to comment on James’s lessons.” or “The teacher tends to wear black.”

    intend to – This is used to talk about something you plan to do. ‘intend’ comes from the word ‘intension’. For example: “I intend to fly to Paris in December.” or “I intend to buy a car for my wife.”

    Hope that helps you out.

    Thursday, September 16th 2010

Thanks James….:) Your lesson is so interesting and you are funny one :)

    Thursday, October 21st 2010

Hi James. I’m from Italy. Great your English Lessons ! I appreciate them in general. But I am a little confused about the differences between ALL and EVERY. I am a Math, so “All men are mortal” and “Every man is mortal” … is equivalent as “statement”. Hence, I would think that the difference is only grammatical but not in the meanings. But It seems to me that your exposition has got something of Mathematic. So, at the end, I’m a little confused …. Is your exposition a mathematical or grammatical exposition ?
Anyway, thanks a lot ! I really like your shows and they help me a lot.

Tuesday, October 19th 2010

Dear James
Greeting…
Really thanks

Monday, November 15th 2010

Hi James…
i have a question about your exemple (8:54):
All people enjoyed themselves.
Everyone enjoyed …

You didn’t write on board..so..my question is: Everyone enjoyed themselves?? like first example?
obs.: Everyone is here… or even a part of a song: Everyone is someone in L.A…

I’m so confused right now…help me..

Friday, November 19th 2010

    [You didn’t write on board..so..my question is: Everyone enjoyed themselves?? like first example?]
    He said “enjoyed themselves, bla, bla,…”, which means so on?!?
    I think so :)
    Uhm,
    Could you please explain what “obs” stands for?
    By the way, my name’s Uy, from Viet Nam, nice to see you there. :)

    Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

      My question is if “Everyone” is always used as “he/she” combining with “is”…and if “Everyone” combine with “itself” or “themselves”…
      That is it! Did u got it??

      See ya!

      Wednesday, December 8th 2010

Dear EngVid,
I find your videos useful and it’s helped me a lot. Tks! :)
I would like to ask you a few questions. :D

In one paragraph, I read that in some cases native speakers prefer being called by name to being added an extra word – like “Mr” or “Mrs” before their names.

My old teacher, from New Zealand, used to call himself Michael. We thought it would be more polite to add “Mr” before “Michael”. :( We did so, and he was called “Mr Michael” during his time with us (a 24-student class)

Therefore, I was rather disappointed when I read about this. Can explain more clearly to me? On which occasion can I call one “Mr.” or “Mrs” ???
Tks once again!
Best regards from Viet Nam
Uy

Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

    Sorry, our dear teachers
    Please you explain for me this doubt between using Mr or Mrs, or only your names.
    Thank you so mach
