Hello, We are really appreciative for what you are
doing here.
as you know nowadays most people apply for studying
abroad. so, I would like to ask you talk about
university vocabulary.
The things that a student needs to know about Foreign
universities from applying to studying there.

thank you very much jimes

abdelle

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?

FOGASSA

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

Sidney

    I agree with you Sidney…the staff of EngVid teach me a lot of stuff….

    adurao

      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 ;)

      Suelz

      I want to improve my english. This lessons are very helpful, but I need to practice my english in conversation.
      Would you like have a conversation by SKYPE?

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

mich

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!:)

inayati

Hi James !!! thanks for video , it’s very useful !!!

smbsmbsmb

I am a eng speaking learner and I see video I like so much. Thanks

Siraj ajani

Great video sir. But at the end you said “by the time you see this, it will be “near to” ten billion” . I’m confused. I would be grateful if you could explain it.Thank you :))

Suelz

Thank you!

projo

thx a lot

abc

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 :)

sasha11

Great lesson. thank you very much James

adurao

Thank you very much for this useful lesson :) I will remember all this stuff !

Rania

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)

Ellie

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

CarlOS

I’m so happy.
I took 8 in the quiz.
Thanks James for this video.

sramos

good lesson

coolboy

i love your lesson

coolboy

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

fenixita

    Well, I’ve found the answer. Thanks!

    fenixita

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

      Suelz

        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!

        fenixita

          Thank you very much fenixita. :))

          Suelz

          Welcome anytime, Suelz!

          fenixita

          thanks! I wondered about ‘math’ too)

          Ellie

please help me.

Ronnie Amaury

James,
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
http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/near_1
Would you say that in Canadian English it’s a mistake and in BrE it’s a proper structure?

Looking forward to your reply.

Why weren’t you my english teacher when I was 12 ? I didn’t like my teacher. I didn’t understand her and then, I hated your language ! Perhaps I was not interesting in another language because I didn’t know why I learned. And you really are better than my boring professor… Thank you very much !

2. Whose stuff will help plan the Christmas party?

Is this correct?

yes
no

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!

joseingles2013

Excuse me James! I understood that the “to” shouldn´t follow the word “near”, but then why did you say “nearer to 10.000 viewers” at the end of your video? Maybe i didn´t get it well!
Kind regards from Venezuela!

joseingles2013

I did the quiz perfectly, so the lesson was useful for me ;). Thanks a lot!

Zaman1804

Thanks for your great lesson, James.
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.

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.

    engVid Moderator

Thanks James. I have studied english since last year and the stuff that the staff of engvid has teach us have been very helpfull.
once more, thanks for the lessons and continue like this.

JPLCARVALHO

Everything was very well explained. Very good.

But I’m afraid I didn’t get the “turtle” thing.

Is it a slang for “teacher”?

I’ve never heard that in my life.

Sonia1234

I will not forget the stuff you have taught to me.

hannn

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.

Could you please speak slowly because english is not our native language. Thanks

Ebitris

thanks

hichamhalim

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.
