    hi James you are very good teacher because of you my English is improving.
    and Iam getting some thing

    Monday, April 23rd 2012

    As usual James, your lessons are just great!!! Although I have fallen behind, as you may have noticed, I’m still alive and kicking.

    That’s the magic of online language courses, knowledge is always at your fingertips anytime.

    All my best!!!

Saturday, October 29th 2011

Great lesson, thank you for it. But now I have to go cause one more minute and it’ll be touch and go whether I would catch the train :) by the way, I doubt that this lesson is of beginner level… your language is quite idiomatic, for example, this “you know, the early bird catches the worm and I thought if I got on top of it now…” was really a challenge :) good luck!

Saturday, October 29th 2011

4 out 4 thanks alot. It’s wonderful.

Saturday, October 29th 2011

Saturday, October 29th 2011

Beginner? Really? :)

Saturday, October 29th 2011

    I like all your lessons because they are lively and humour :). But I almost don’t understand because you are speaking very quickly :(

    Monday, November 12th 2012

    Hi Tahon, his talking fast is not for beginners, believe me.

    As usual James, your lessons are just great!!! Although I have fallen behind, as you may have noticed, I’m still alive and kicking.

Sunday, October 30th 2011

you are a great teacher…I learnt new thing in English…

Sunday, October 30th 2011

Thank you for the helpful idioms, you are the best.

Sunday, October 30th 2011

James, please explain me briefly why do we say, for instance, let your face change the world, but don’t let the world change your face? I know this is completely correct, but I was wondering why we don’t say Let your face “CHANGES” the world? Why don’t we add “S” at the end of the verb here? Thank you in advance :)

Sunday, October 30th 2011

    The sentence is in the imperative .. if written normally . It goes like this ‘YOU should let your face change the world’ Another way to put this is ‘you should change the world with [using] your face’ .. Hope it helps.

    Thursday, November 3rd 2011

      Certainly! It helps a lot. Thank you Idris! James, where are you man? You shouldn’t let others to respond on questions sent to you!

really i don’t understand ur lesson i saw u re speaking so quikly and ur language not clear sorry but just my point view man :)

Sunday, January 15th 2012

    I fully agree with saying above. James you speak too fast and so your pronunciation is not quite understandable, as it turned out, not only for me. Just speak please more slowly and all be fine. Your lessons are very funny and I love it. Go on! (Sorry for my English)

    Wednesday, January 18th 2012

I think you teach not clear because you just give some reason on the board by the snake. Talk and talk it is nit helpful for everybody to learning . I think you need another method to teach everybody.

Tuesday, January 17th 2012

Thanks

Monday, January 23rd 2012
