All teachers of “EngVid” doing good job.

James you are really wonderful teacher.
it would be very useful if you can make video about how the tenses are shifting.
I mean that, to use different tenses in one sentence.

thanks

Also using if condition will be fine.

      Saturday, October 29th 2011

        Dear Jumat, the answer for the first (5) question is “going”. After like, you can not use go in that form. It must be going or to go. I hope that I could help.

        Monday, November 28th 2011

thank you teacher for this lesson is very useful .
teacher please, you can tell me wath’s the deifference between (I can’t take it and I can’t stand it )

    can’t take it
    معناها لا يمكن ان احصل علية
    I can’t stand it

3)can’t
4)were you
5)tell
6)go
7)had
8)had already left

For learning english grammar there are many sources,we can learn through books & can learn through internet also.for making grammar perfect there is a need to be strong in fields like adjective,noun,preposition,adverb,pronoun,verb.

Thursday, July 28th 2011

Hello James! I’m Florina from Romania. I’m interested in learning English and I started about two years ago, trying to learn alone. I can say it’s very hard to learn alone, so I see myself obliged to ask help. Now, I’m trying to undertand the deferences between present perfect simple and present perfect continuous with for and since. For exemple : ” I’ve been leaving in this town for many years/since I was a child”- and : “I’ve lived here for two years/since 2000″.
It’ true that we use simple present perfect with verbs that show a situation like: live, be, stay,k know ?
I’ll be grateful for your answer,
Florina.

Thursday, July 28th 2011

    Florina nu intaleg intrebarea ta . ,,lived ” nu e prezetnt e trecut .. ce ai vrut sa intrebi?

    Wednesday, October 23rd 2013

Your videos are so great, i am learning very quick with them. Can you please do a video on prepositions. I always get confused with those. Such as do i say “In the bus” or “on the bus?” i wish i had you as my english teacher, even if its only for one year.

Thursday, July 28th 2011

It’s really good , but still here a little of Complications , i just should listen to the lesson more then one time
thanks

Friday, July 29th 2011

Friday, July 29th 2011

Sunday, July 31st 2011

Hi, beautiful lesson James. please can you give me a trigger to teach the present perfect and the conditional, very hard stuff for foreign students. thank you, connie.

Tuesday, August 2nd 2011

Tuesday, August 2nd 2011

you are so amazing teacher i like to be your student

Wednesday, August 3rd 2011

I don’t get it.

Wednesday, August 3rd 2011

I’ve been observing your previous lessons and they are all flipping nuts! This one is particularly awesome, but I’m wondering what words would you use in the trigger and definition parts for a past perfect progressive and future perfect tense. It would be great if you can reply my comment!
James I suggest that you prepare a lesson on CONDITIONALS, please make an overview including mix and exceptions. THNX

Thursday, August 4th 2011

I love your way of teaching. Would you please make presentations of how to teach other tenses? I’m looking forward to, bye :)

Saturday, August 6th 2011

I understand the tense you trying to teach. what about the comparison between present,past and future tense with the same situation.

Sunday, August 7th 2011

very interesting, thank you

Monday, August 8th 2011

Hi james nice lesson thanks for make english easier for us see us!!

Tuesday, August 9th 2011

I know you are the one who’s better than all of the teachers teaching English, that’s why I tried to ask you. how can I download full video in a single click? or buy CDs? within Afghanistan it’s very difficult to find internet cafe and if you did, there is no enough bandwidth to download these clips.
I really appreciate your teaching style and your sister on white board.
please answer me one more thing, why there is police horn passing by on every session of this engvid? Sometimes it is exectly when the lession is near to end.
I wish I could be in your English classes live.
I realy like the style and confident you use to teach.
best regards,
Ahmad Wali

Friday, December 30th 2011

James, I do apologize my comments about your teaching method. I think it better to stick on short and sweet subject matter rather than to explain un necessary explanation. you always talking too much out of subject matter, if you explain to the point it will make quite easy to understand and with in the time frame you c

Monday, January 2nd 2012

James,
My sggestion about your teaching method, always come to the fact, to the ponit no need to explain unnecessarly. you always talking out of subject and your examples doesn’t support to understand to the subject matter.It is better to stick on subject matter rather than to explain un necesarly because your long explanation makes quite puzzel to understand the main fact. so, It will better to go short and sweet to the points.
Thank you.

Monday, January 2nd 2012

James,
your lessons are so helpful for me. Thanks a lot. When I’m listening to you I discover english again. It slowly becomes a passion. Thanks again.
