Very good Alex! Thank you :)
Now I know more five. :)

– SMILES: there is a mile between the first and last letters!

– What starts with E, ends with E and only has one letter ?
– An envelope.

Saturday, June 18th 2016

    Funny jokes :)

    Saturday, June 18th 2016

    hhhhh I like them but the last one I didn’t understand it

    Saturday, June 18th 2016

      – “starts with E” –> Envelope
      – “ends with E” –> envelopE
      – “and only has one letter”

      In English “letter” means:
      1) A character representing one or more of the sounds used in speech; any of the symbols of an alphabet.

      2) A written, typed, or printed communication, especially one sent in an envelope by mail or messenger.

      The joke plays with the dual meaning :)

      Saturday, June 18th 2016

    Haha. I’ve heard all of these before. I like the third one.

    Saturday, June 18th 2016

      Hy Alex I would be glad if you could answer my question below
      Thanks

      Tuesday, June 21st 2016

amazing thnx

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Hi
Hope you are doing well
I would be glad if you could tell me what is the exact meaning of this sentence in English the sentence is ” was it a bad day or was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day ”
I exactly wanna know the meaning in what case do people use such this sentence and why for? Thanks in advance
I will impatiently be waitting for your answer

Saturday, June 18th 2016

    Hello Mehdi, I found on the website: http://www.wordreference.com/ the meaning of the verb “to milk”. It means extract milk or in slang: to tire. They give this example: “the boss milked his employees for every drop of energy they have” I bet Alex will find the meaning of your sentence.

    Saturday, June 18th 2016

      May be have you seen the comment of Rebecca about the sentence: ” was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day ”. She has perfectly explained the different meanings of the verb milk.Thank you for helping the others to improve English.

      Monday, June 20th 2016

        Don’t mention that
        Yeah we should try to improve English
        But does Rebecca have answered my question?
        I have not seen any answer for my question yet

        Tuesday, June 21st 2016

          On Rebecca’s lesson: “because or because of you have the answer.
          To milk” literally means to squeeze milk from an animal like a cow, but figuratively it can mean to pressure someone for something, or to over-use something. For example, a cop might “milk” a suspect for information, or a comedian might “milk” a joke until it’s no longer funny. A common idiom is “milking it for attention”—exaggerating something to get people to pay attention to you. Have you ever seen a little child fall over and cry even though it’s not really hurt, because it wants its parents to fuss over it? “A bad five minutes that you milked all day” implies that you only had a short bad experience, but you let it ruin your day because you felt sorry for yourself.
          This isn’t an idiom or a figure of speech—I had to Google it. It’s an inspirational quote—kind of like a proverb or saying, but newer (though we don’t usually know where it came from). It’s the kind of thing people pass around on social media because it motivates them to feel better.
          Hope this helps!f”

          Tuesday, June 21st 2016

By the way
I would be glad if you could tell me a little about the language psychology at teaching
also give me a hand by expressing some english teaching methods,how a teacher/constructor could properly motivate students to talk
by the way this is mehdi form iran-tehran
thanks indeed

Saturday, June 18th 2016

How could we work with kids and motivate them to learn
Is that useful just work on their grammar or should we encourage them to talk at the same time

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Thank you Alex! Your jokes are very funny!
I have one for you.

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Dracula’s wife, Elisabeta, couldn’t sleep because her husband (then known as Vlad Palovnik) was out, slaying Turks. These few nights they were together weren’t spent on sleeping.

Thank U Alex!. I laugh a little with Beethoven one. I always say that a joke is funny not for itself but for the way you tell it.

Good luck!!

Saturday, June 18th 2016

…I laughed (mistake)

    I’m glad you liked the Beethoven joke!

Saturday, June 18th 2016

It was a very interesting lesson, Alex. I liked all of the jokes. In my opinion, they’re not stupid. You are a great teacher and actor, your videos are excellent. Thank you so much and I’ll see you next time! Bye!

Saturday, June 18th 2016

thank you Alex :)
it`s a very good idea to learn english through jokes

Saturday, June 18th 2016

Hey buddy Alex!
Really cool those jokes, but um, I kinda went like “what?!”… Like um, “hahaha”, but I didn’t quite laugh. I just giggled at some of them. I did laugh at the other ones from the previous video. I told ’em to my cousin, she laughed her ass off. Specially the one about the pregnant lady and the contractions. Never gets old.

Hey um, send videos like this every once in a while. It’s good to keep the language going, you know, alive. Formal stuff sucks sometimes.

Thank you again! Thank you for the fun video!

See ya!
:)

Sunday, June 19th 2016

    That was my thinking with this video as well. I wanted to make something fun and less formal. It’s good to have variety, and I believe that if you’re having fun while learning, it’s easier to learn in general.

    Monday, June 20th 2016

Thanks. That’s a great method to learn English speaking.

Sunday, June 19th 2016

      Monday, June 20th 2016

It’s not fair!)) Dad jokes sounds like “bad jokes”! Though in reality dad jokes is like dark humor much more frequently, isn’t it?))

Sunday, June 19th 2016

    Dad jokes are basically bad jokes. Dark humour is something else. :)

Monday, June 20th 2016

Merci pour cette leçon Alex. C’est tout à fait le genre de blagues “pourries” qui nous amusent avec mon adolescent de petit-fils. Je vais donc les retenir en français.

Monday, June 20th 2016

Hi Alex thank you a lot……..it’s always a great pleasure to watch your videos

    Monday, June 20th 2016

Monday, June 20th 2016

how good it is to learn English in a funny way!
tksss!

Monday, June 20th 2016

:D shelfish was funny

Monday, June 20th 2016

Thanks Alex!

These are good jokes… to learn English :)

Indeed, playing with words pronunciation and double meaning is funny and sometimes gives good jokes.

Some mistakes with pronunciation also results in irreverent and memorable situations.

One day, when I was in Toronto, I wanted to buy some knitting wool balls, which my mom asked for. Then, I found a person in a street and I asked to him:

– Where can I find a [wul] store?

I had spoken with a somewhat British pronunciation for wool, which I’ve learnt somewhere. The gentle person, with a confused face expression, then interrogated me, using the Canadian/American pronunciation.

– [wool]?

I replied, because I couldn’t understand.

– [wul]

And then, again, that person, not so paciently.

– [wool]?
– [wul]
– [wool]!?
– [wul]!

After some barkings between us. We went each one to one direction, upset… But I eventually found a store… and learnt the different pronunciations.

Monday, June 20th 2016

By the way, you are a good actor!

Monday, June 20th 2016

    Thanks, Fabio! I enjoyed making this video. I’m not sure about my accent in some of the sections, though. Haha.

    Tuesday, June 21st 2016

      Alex

      I enjoyed your jokes. I was kidding in the above message.

      About the possible accents concerning the word “wool”, the mistake was mine. Lack of proper preparation. And your pronunciation and accent is very clear!

      Thanks again and have a nice day!

      Tuesday, June 21st 2016

Why number 6 is afraid of 7?. Because 7 , 8, 9!!! Chan!

They are good ones, maybe a little childish, but for us students a good resource of informal english. I remember this one:

    Tuesday, June 21st 2016

I like the way you change the format little bit. It really does create diversity in engvid. I am one of the very old member of this website. Even for me Adam and Jane are new comers of this family.
I have been kept watching all of you guys videos since i was in highscool. If ı can speak english fluently now it’s thanks to engvid.
I wish I could do something beneficial for this website. I think I am doing it. I am telling people who would like to improve their english to check this website :)

What are pop-tart and date (food)?

Sunday, July 17th 2016

    Pop tarts are an American brand of breakfast pastry that you re-heat in the toaster. The date is a sweet, sticky, olive-sized fruit that comes from the Middle East and North Africa. Dried dates are a very common baking ingredient here.
