Very well made and funny lesson (as usual) Thanks James!

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

    Yep! I agree with you, a well-planed, but above all a hillarious lesson as usual.

    The idiom part was the most entertaining, James explains everything with great ease.

    Thanks James, you always make me laugh.

Thanx For The Lesson Mr James

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

Well got 8 out of 10 as i’m not married and i thought they have to wear the marriage ring on the right ring finger and the second fault is that i don’t have long fingernails as females to scratch my self with them
Thanks Mr James and hope u forgive me for all these middle fingers I replied to you while i’m watching this lesson ;p

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

hi teacher
u said that thumb not part of fingers
explain more plz

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

    hi I understood that you can say all other 4 fingers their names and the word finger next to them… for example. index finger, middle finger, ring finger and little finger, BUT when you’re saying Thumb is only thumb without the word finger… JUST THE WORD THUMB. I hope you can clear your doubt with this short explanation.

In Brasil we also use the same idioms.

Wednesday, April 15th 2015

    Yes, we do. Just the way it sounds in English, it’s the same in Portuguese. But in Portuguese language. Haha!

Whew, that was close. I wasn’t so sure about the wedding ring, if it’s on the right or on the left, maybe because I’ve never been married. This is my 1st quiz on (in,at-not so sure) Engvid.
