The things that a student needs to know about Foreign
universities from applying to studying there.

I like your way to teach English, teacer. But, as I am Brazilian, I don’t like when you speak so quickly because this way I don’t understand so much. Could you be a bit slow on talking?


Thank you! The staff of EngVid teached me a lot of stuff!(Sidney – Brazil)

      Hi Adurao.There is a small mistake in your comment. It should be corrected as “The staff of EngVid “teaches” me a lot of stuff”. My English is also not very good. But I could see the error. So, thought to help you a bit ;)

Thank You! Your a good teacher Mr. James. In addition, how about the difference between shall and should? :)


Dear James, with regard to the use of “would”, you have mentioned that it should be used in a conditional situation. My question is whether the use of “would” is acceptable in a politeness circumstances? Thanks before!:)

If amusement is the best way to learn English, this is excellent!

So if I went for a walk close to my house talking to people that I WILL kill my wife, the police would arrest my ass (bottom). So I won’t do it.

Thank you :)

James, thank you for the interesting lesson :)
I have a question. Could you explain the difference between these structures: ‘have you…’, ‘do you have…’ and ‘have you got…’? It would be a very useful lesson)


Still laughing … LOL
Your best performance so far.
It was very interesting!
Thank you for that !


I’m so happy.

i love your lesson


Hey, James!
I’m a bit confused. Are you sure “math” has the same vowel sound as in “staff” and “laugh”?

Profile photo of fenixita fenixita

    Well, I’ve found the answer. Thanks!

    Profile photo of fenixita fenixita

      Would you please share your answer fenixita ? I also have the same problem. Thank you :)


        It’s about differences between the American and British pronunciation. In British English they say staff /a:/, laugh /a:/ but math /æ/. But in American English all these words contain the /æ/ sound which contradicts the rules of reading and personally pisses me off! No offence!

        Profile photo of fenixita fenixita

          Thank you very much fenixita. :))


          Welcome anytime, Suelz!

hey!! thanks alot James I will put this videos near my most important stuff and close to my heart becouse with it I’m sure I will be a better english speaker and maybe I would become a member of your staff.What do you think?

Ronnie Amaury

Is NEAR TO sth a mistake in 100% of cases?
I’ve checked longman online dictionary, and it gives one example with TO, a hotel near to the beach
Would you say that in Canadian English it’s a mistake and in BrE it’s a proper structure?

Looking forward to your reply.

Fantastic lesson and the way you teach is just great. Thank you!

2. Whose stuff will help plan the Christmas party?

Is this correct?


the correct word is ‘staff’: people that work in a place or offer assistance

But I can’t agree with this answer because
stuff can help you.

Whose are these stuff? They are mine.
What have I got? The diary and the palmtop.
They can remind me about something, they are helpful.

My diary and palmtop will help plan the Christmas party !!!

If I em wrong tell me why.

PS. Lesson was enjoyable as always. Thank you!

I have a quetion about Quiz No.3

3. Tom used his staff to go up the stairs because his leg hurt him.

Why “a walking stick or weapon” is correct answear?

According to your lesson, I tought staff means people.

Profile photo of e-noda e-noda

    This is a bit of a trick question, I guess! “Staff” does mean people, but it can also mean “walking stick” — which is a lot more convenient than getting a bunch of people to help.

Is it a slang for “teacher”?

Thanks James, I am learning your lessons and these are very helpful. I have listened about forty lessons in this week and made almost every quiz and my confidence has already increased a bit. Ok, more than a bit. I very enjoy this way of learning. Beside this activity I see movies in English without subtitles and I learn on an other site too, called duolingo every day. Definitely you were the one who speeded up or strengthened my will, and I did it, and now I do know that I will be able to speak in English and I will can do it well. A really big thank you to you it is a big thing in my life. I have many thing to say to others:)…and there are only ten million people who speak Hungarian.

It has been a little difficult to understand Staff vs. Stuff, either by their sounds or by their meanings, and near (to) vs. close to, they are also a little complicated to guess their meanings, but we have learnt rules to identify these expressions, it is a very good stuff. Thanks a lot, teacher James, a difficult but interesting lesson.
