Yaay I am the first one to comment.
Good morning James sir. Thank you for this wonderful lesson. But I want to ask you a question. As you have said in the video that “how” is not a “w5” word so does it also mean that “how” is not a “wh” word? Plus we have other words like “whose”, ” which” etc. So they cannot be included in the “w5” words? Only these questions I have in mind.
But otherwise now I am able to improve my vocabulary. Thank you once again.

    It goes without saying that using W-questions (information questions)makes your talking more colorful and interesting.

    The point here is to keep this piece of advice in mind if you’re really interested in improving your speaking skills in the foreign language.
    Oral exchanges -under this view- last a bit longer, that’s for sure.

    That’s it for me folks! Take care.

    Saturday, September 10th 2016

    I think that’s a very good question, I’m also interested in their response.

    Sunday, September 11th 2016

    in w5, only 5 wh words come(who,when,where,why,what). There are other wh words that does not come under 5 wh words but i think we can use other wh and how word also to make our conversation more interesting..This is really a very good question.

    In my opinion – this is not the main point. It doesnt matter how many words are deserved to be in the high legue of W5. This is not that strict stuff like you shouldnt use that word! its not in W5! stop! you’re killing the conversation!)) you can! if it fits to the context. James had given us the idea, not the rule. And then it’s up to us to be more creative and interesting

It is really good idea , thank you James .

Sunday, September 11th 2016

Nice tips. I’ll put in practice!

Sunday, September 11th 2016

I hope you won’t take offense but, speaking about the quiz, I don’t completely agree with the kind of approch you define right.
How can I ask:”Who is your fovourite brother…? I don’t know if he has got any brothers or sisters.
The same is for the question about opportunity. We don’t know what he thinks about opportunities. And so on….

Anyway this lesson made me think ,in English:), about the right way to have a long, profitable conversation and gave me some good tips.
Thanks James.

What a great lesson… When you got a extensive vocabulary, you might talk for a long time, but when you got a smaller vocabulary, probably you won’t talk too much.

Thanks James.

Wednesday, September 14th 2016

Great job James!!!

Thursday, September 15th 2016

Friday, September 16th 2016

it is so very good man.

Friday, September 16th 2016

own that is a great conversation about how to talk to people.

Friday, September 16th 2016

Hi James! Thanks for this interesting lesson!

Practicing a little, but with real curiosity:

– When and why did you move to Canada?
– Where do you teach English besides EngVid?
– What are your favourite places to visit in Toronto?

Saturday, September 17th 2016

I see, Mr. James is not very talkative person…

Sunday, September 18th 2016

Hey, James, I like your lesson. You are so hummer and intersting!

Sunday, September 18th 2016

Hello Parya!

The right sentence is the second one (“I am looking forward to seeing you”), because “to” here is a preposition, and, in English, we have to use the -ING form after prepositions.

I hope it was helpful. Bye!

Sunday, September 18th 2016

Hi James and everyone!

Thank you very much for this excellent lesson. It is really useful. That is important to know how to make the right questions so as to make the conversation more interesting and longer. I have found some pen pals in Engvid, and I try, in my e-mails, to make different questions, so that I can both learn more about my friend’s culture and practice my English.

See you in the next video! Bye for now!

Sunday, September 18th 2016

One more great lesson as usual .. thank you James

Sunday, September 18th 2016

James, you’re my favourite teacher (after Ronnie, of course, because she is awesome. And ginger :)) I suppose you don’t find my words something… something like a boot-licker’s speech) I learn English four month and adore new words) My regards to Mr. E too.

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

Thanks teacher James, we have learnt how to ask questions,
what stuffs we might ask, where we can speak with people
to practice English, why we should use deep questions in
meaning to start a good conversation, who we may
interchange information with and so on. Like always you
have had a good idea to explain how we can improve our
English level of acknowledge, using the famous feed-back
to answer all that we have understood. Good performance and
very amusing. Thanks a lot.

Friday, September 23rd 2016
