    Sunday, November 20th 2016

I am very grateful to you! This lesson isn`t just for improving language skills – it`s predominantly for understanding the reasons of people`s behavior as well as for understanding myself. Brilliant and useful. Thank you very much!

Saturday, November 19th 2016

I put “confused” in number four and “disappointed” in number 8. “Disappointed” and “anxious” fit better but it’s not that bad anyways, right? Thanks for the lesson! :)

Sunday, November 20th 2016

thnks for lesson james

Sunday, November 20th 2016

I love engvid so much. Thanks for this wonderful lesson.

Sunday, November 20th 2016

Well, this lesson was a little odd, weird and strange for me because you have to use seven synonyms of “angry” and you have to compare these synonyms with the context of the situation, then you should choose the right word to express your opinion and it’s difficult to remember the meaning of all of them. Anyhow, it was a good performance and explanation but I believe that I have to see it again to get more feed-back. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid. Regards.

Sunday, November 20th 2016

    I have just listened the lesson again and now I remember you when you explained that “people fight or they get into fight because they CARE or take CARE among them”, this is the concept I had also doubted at the beginning but now with a new review of the lesson I think I have understood it. Thanks.

    Sunday, November 20th 2016

This lesson is very good to improve our listening, vocabulary and good manners.:)

Sunday, November 20th 2016

INTERESTING,AND INFORMATIVE, BECAUSE I LEARNT NEW VOCABULARY

Sunday, November 20th 2016

Hey! Somebody could you explain me number 10 I am confused…???
If people be care about each other they do not fight but…

Sunday, November 20th 2016

    i’m also cofused by this question ???!!!!, for that i’ve got 9/10

    Sunday, November 20th 2016

    Hello Karik .
    If you care about someone , that means you pay attention of what this person can do or say to you . If it is something that makes you not happy you can feel angry . On the contrary ,if you don’t care , all is nice , nothing can hurt you .
    Hope this helps

    Monday, November 21st 2016

    “Care about” = feel concern is not the same than “take care” = provide care

    Monday, November 21st 2016

      thanks for this indication, you have a good point ,
      i understand now without confusiong , and i remember that Mr james has mentioned the first meaning, but when i was reading the last question the second meaning went throught my mind instead of the first.

      Monday, November 21st 2016

      Thank you! Charleville I got it

      Monday, November 21st 2016

But I did 7 of 10 and I am not angry)

Sunday, November 20th 2016

thanks for very interesting lesson

Sunday, November 20th 2016

Well done, James. Very useful vocabulary! Thank you so much.

Sunday, November 20th 2016

Well said James!

This lesson teaches us much more than grammar rules, but how to deal with our neighbour, which is very important in any language, country and culture. Thanks a lot.

I agree with you. When our blood is up, we don’t listen the other person, and our only target is to attack and hurt him/her, making the situation worse and worse… However, when we stop to hear the other person and agree in some points, he/she will probably do the same, and the argument will finish. Great lesson learned!

Hi everyone!

Is there anyone here interested in practising English on Skype or by e-mail? If so, please tell me, because I really want to make some new foreign friends and improve our English together.

All the best!

Monday, November 21st 2016

Hi James! Thanks for this video. You not only taught us new vocabulary, you also taught us how to deal with someone that might be angry with us for some reason we do not know.

See you!!

Monday, November 21st 2016

Excellent class! Thanks a lot!

Monday, November 21st 2016

Very useful, thank you!

Wednesday, November 23rd 2016

Very interesting lesson. Sometimes is good to be reminded we have to listen to the people, to low ourselves and discuss a bit more instead of attack. To put oneself in someone else’s shoes is a good way to understand and to prevent fights.

Those phrases for listen and argue are very helpful as well.

Many thanks James.
