    May I correct you? ADVICE is UNCOUNTABLE noun so we can’t say “advices”.

    Wednesday, July 10th 2013

I really liked these advices,thank you James ,we’re waiting your next videos keep it up.

Saturday, June 29th 2013

I appreciate your advice and a big thank you from Athens.

Saturday, June 29th 2013

I really like the idea that how you were saying learning a new language is like working out physically, instead we are working out our brain mentally. Thank you very much for the lesson Mr. James !

Sunday, June 30th 2013

thank you so much teacher james but the lesson is so long ^^

Sunday, June 30th 2013

Very good advice Mr. James….I really like your teaching method….using analogies to help us understand better and remember more easily what you teach!! Continue like that!
Thanks a lot :)

Sunday, June 30th 2013

thank you Mr.James

Sunday, June 30th 2013

hi James,

I really like the way you teach and in particular the way you explain phrasal verb: I agree with you saying that if you get the meaning of the particle, it is easier (and enjoyable!) to get the meaning of the phrasal.
I’d like to ask you a couple of questions about phrasal. The first is about “make up” when it is used with the meaning of “become friends after arguing”: why make UP? maybe we use UP becasue it means “closer” (like in come up or creep up on someone)so, after arguing, two people come close again, anyway, what’s your take on that?
the last question is about the particle “away”. Sometimes it means ” do somehting continuously or with a lot of effort”: why?

thank you so much and i wish you the best

cheers!

Alessio

Sunday, June 30th 2013

Sunday, June 30th 2013

That’s really great! Thanks James

Sunday, June 30th 2013

James, you are a very smart teacher, because while you teach us your method to fix the new languange, you teach a new vocabulary, new expressions, new constructions too.

I’m studing english a couple of months ago, and before I didn’t understand nothing that you told in your videos. But I always understood your classes. So these days I’m understanding you so clearly and you aren’t so fast as you was. It’s great (ok, ok… I know you can speak very very faster than you can in your videos.. :) I know, I have to follow a long journey yet so that I can say that “I speak englishhhh” and more still to I write a long letter without to search by google translate, but even so, today, I can try. Thanks.

Monday, July 1st 2013

I got 10 by second time

Monday, July 1st 2013

Really thanks my teacher..i like to hear your lessons!~

Monday, July 1st 2013

Thanks you so much for your lesson. I appreciate to learn with you. I will follow your advice, I hope I’ll improve English! Thanks Jame.

Monday, July 1st 2013

James, I hate you. Almost every of your videos forces me to change something in my learning program. It is helpful, but again, DO NOT APPROACH TO MY HAUSE! (I hope you know the word ‘sarcasm’).

Monday, July 1st 2013

    if you hate him then why do you even visit the site just don’t come again if you are that rude to a teacher that is trying to teach every one something . dude , if none has mentioned this before you are a very very annoying guy , i just don’t wanna see your face in the site again !!!

    Thursday, April 24th 2014

      Hi, primous. I’m afraid you got me wrong. I tried to write the sentence with irony so its meaning is oposite. I like James and his lessons very much. I wanted to emphasise that he enforces me to additional work, wich is good of course.

      Thursday, April 24th 2014

Learning for a long time without taking a break is no good indeed! I tried to work out too much without taking a break before which turned out to stress me out. Thanks for your tips!

Monday, July 1st 2013

hi,thanks:)

Monday, July 1st 2013

Hello, James. I’ve watch many of your videos. Thanks a million, they’re fantastic. But I have a question about one of them. In a video about “adverbs”, you said “towards” is a adverb. But my Oxford dictionary says it’s a preposition. But for forwards, onwards says they’re adverb. Can you help me about it? Thank you in advance.
