I have not understood the difference between “lender”and “landlord/lady”.

Thanks for this very useful lesson, James. Ciao

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    You are a lender : You gave somebody something (anything) and he/she has to give it back to you

    You are a landlord: You own houses/domain and poeple who live in have to pay you the rente

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

      Wednesday, September 16th 2015

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

…actually James you are talking so fast! You can’t imagine how many times I would like to have you in front of me and tell you”Hey,slow down!”….but maybe this is the most great part of your teaching….actually it is!
Thank you very much :)

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    Don’t worry lady, I did experience the same thing when I started following his video lessons. But then, I have gotten used to him.

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

      I hope I have the same feeling after some time.

      Thursday, September 17th 2015

    It might be hard to understand because he speaks naturally. And I think that is good.

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

      I believe the same,it is very good !

      Thursday, September 17th 2015

    hey katrina how are you doing?

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

      I’m very good,thank you.

      Thursday, September 17th 2015

    Don’t worry about that Kate..I though so fast in the beginning ,but now is so fine!!! Study Hard and never give up!! Good Luck!!

    Thursday, September 17th 2015

      Thank you for your advice.

      Friday, September 18th 2015

JAMES!! You forgot to talk about the fourth leg of the table : miscellaneous, with the loan and the rent.

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    These are terms from economics, so IMHO the best way to fully understand them is to read articles on Wikipedia.

    Tuesday, October 20th 2015

      Thanks man, brohoof /)

      Tuesday, October 20th 2015

Thanks James alot

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

Wow! what’s the word I’m looking for? outstanding! You’re really a kind of teacher. Funny, entertaining and very educational at the same time. You should have been an movie actor.

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

hi
can u tell me about take and get?
they are confusig for me
thank u

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

Thank you James. Great lesson.
May I ask what does it mean the word “chow” at the end of lesson? I checked the dictionary but I got only the meaning “food”…

Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    I guess, it was the word ‘ciao’, which you definitely know )

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

    Hi! I think the word in the end is not “chow” but an Italian word “ciao” that is used for “hello” and “goodbye” :)

    Wednesday, September 16th 2015

It really helps us to improve our English!
Thanks a lot.
