ur lesson’s so useful. Thank u so much, jon. I hope u’ll make more lessons about idioms like this. Have a nice day!

Wednesday, September 14th 2011

and i think it would be more clearly if u write the examples about the idioms on board

Wednesday, September 14th 2011

    You’re right, but you can see the idioms written out in the lesson description above the video.

    Thursday, September 15th 2011

Jon thanx a lot

I like English by Idioms

^_^

Thursday, September 15th 2011

the exam was a piece of cake.

Thursday, September 15th 2011

horay!. bottom up!

Thursday, September 15th 2011

gr8 way of teaching. u too gud sir

Thursday, September 15th 2011

It is interesting to learn english idioms. Thanks.

Thursday, September 15th 2011

I enjoy very much engvid. The teachers are wonderful. their lessons are easy to understand and useful. Their accents are perfect so now I need some training about strong accents: Scotich, Australian, American. I hope they can help me ! Thank you very much

Thursday, September 15th 2011

    I agree with you, vilainpetitcrapaud. Strong accents are very common and all around the World. All my life studyig English for not understanding sentences like ‘Hallo! D’u ‘nst wa’sng? -but spoken by mobile- Sure! They speak quite good RP English.

    Thursday, September 15th 2011

this is a great lesson well explained thanks a lot!

Thursday, September 15th 2011

i likes to learn english more…

Thursday, September 15th 2011

Thank you, so much Jon.
Jon please I have a question: a couch potato is a person that in general is lazy or only is a person who sits in front the tv and do anything?

Again, thank you.

Thursday, September 15th 2011

    I think..
    a couch potato = someone who just watch and sit in front of TV and doing nothing but only eating (potato chips and other snacks) until he becomes fat and round like potato.. :P

    You can not say it for other kind of laziness.

    Thursday, December 29th 2011

Maybe we can also consider “Al Bundy” as a correct answer…!!! :)

Thursday, September 15th 2011

    I added that one :)

    Thursday, September 15th 2011

      I didn’t doubt that at all!! :)

      Friday, September 16th 2011

      hold on..
      AL Bundy? what is it?
      is it the answer of comment above?
      -couch potato, can be applied to any lazy behavior- or specifically to ‘watching TV’ behavior?
      sorry, i was kinda lost here..
      pls kindly specify..

      Wednesday, December 28th 2011

        Hi gimmehunny! The correct answer is “cough potato”. “Al Bundy” was a joke! Al Bundy is a character from an american serie “Married with children”. This character loves watching TV, he’s a cough potato! If you want to know more about it, go and see on Wikipedia at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Bundy

        Wednesday, December 28th 2011

          omg.. no wonder I got confused here.. we don’t get that series here that’s why.. thxs milly..
          btw milly, do you get notified in your e-mail when anybody responds to your comment? coz I’ve been waiting for any notification, but haven’t got any.. :(
          Mr. engVid, could you please look through it? or I just don’t deserve any? :((

          Thursday, December 29th 2011

          No problem! There are so many series! To get notifications by email when someone respond to your comments, you need to go in your profile (“edit your profile” near your photo in the top of the page). Then go at “COMMENT ALERTS” and tick the box “email: to get notified by email when someone replies to your comments”. And after don’t forget to click on “SAVE YOUR CHANGES” (at the bottom). After that, it should work! (if it doesn’t, you’d have to ask to Mr EngVid! HI MR ENGVID!;)

          Friday, December 30th 2011

          Hi Milly ;) Always good to see you! I didn’t forget about you… just been really, really busy!

          Tuesday, January 10th 2012

          gimmehunny — I will check your account to see if there is some problem with the email settings. You *do* deserve engVid comment reply notifications!

          Tuesday, January 10th 2012

bottoms up for engvid

Monday, September 19th 2011

thanks

Monday, September 19th 2011

Come to Manchester and you won’t understand anything :) their accent is so difficult to understand. Sounds like vowels only. Sometimes i think that my eng is terrible when i listen to them cause i can’t really understand what ppl say here. Even sitting on a bus and listening to chicks behind me and i can’t understand them. Fuxing hell, it’s not a peace of cake. In states it is but not here. And there is another one: Peace of piss. The same meaning :) just you wouldn’t say it to your boss.

Monday, September 19th 2011

Good lesson :)

Monday, September 19th 2011

Tuesday, September 20th 2011

Thank you,

Jon, correct me if I am wrong, but someone told me that the meaning of “bottoms up” was bottom por “ass”, in spanish would be “culos para arriba”. Not bottoms of the things, would be bottons of the people. The best wishes

Hi Jon, I’m from Brazil, and for me was a great pleasure to find you came here in the past to teach English. I’l love to know in which city you lived here? Perdoe meus erros, pra mim é terrivel escrever em ingles, eu posso ler e compreender o que leio mas falar e escrever é muito dificil. I hope improve my English with engvid. Grande abraço.

Hi dear Jon
I was wondering why you are so sweet and you actually answered this question by stating that you’re a guy with a sweet tooth;)Jon I don’t know if you read this comment or not but in case that you do would you please explain the meaning of this gesture something you did after the word boob tube I’ve always wanted to ask a native about the meaning behind it, it’s very common among you,isn’t it? when I watch the lovely TED talks,by the way can I use this gesture before this phrase “lovely TED talks”!,I notice that the speakers use it several times, SORRY FOR SUCH A LONG COMMENT:(

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Actually before the word boob tube!

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Thank you for helping me.
