is it correct ???
5 out of 5 :) thank you MAN ! for teaching,when I come back here,I would like to see another video ^_^ I believe that you will make useful lessons.
HASAN sly it means as a fox,a little bit tricky :)
Hi james. Thanks for your lesson. I just have a question on “come back” & tenses.
On (or in???) the quiz we can read “When I come back here, this place had better be clean.”
1/ Can we write “When I’ll come back…”. If YES, which is the difference?
2/ In the second part of the sentence why do you use the past form of have???
Thx in advance for your answer
Hellow sir,Thank you for your effort.I got one mistake in this test.
Hallo! Maybe I can help you? Sentence 1 – when we speak about future, we don’t use “will” after “when” or “if”. Sentence 2 – “had better do it” is a set expression which means “you should do it or else, e.g., I will punish you”. Am I right, teacher?
Thanks a lot for your answer Enigma
i like like like like you very very much
Thank you very much, you’re really cool teacher.
Thank you very much. Very Very Very Clear and I like it so much.
thank you!!! i really had fun !!!
hi marine.. how are you? do you have Facebook? may i take your email address in Facebook? so we could talk and practice English because the best thing to practice English is to have conversation to someone.. thanks

James,If I know that “another” has the “an” on its beginning,and it means :+1,do I need to say :”I liked this ice-cold Coca-Cola.I’d like another one.” or should I say “I’d like another” without one simply?
Greetings from Brazil and all the best.

Very good lesson, thanks for million from Argentina.
Hello James! you said a sentence ( about make) during your lecture that was “when he get a job then he will make money” but when we use make 4 money like u said so it shows that “he makes money by hook or crook” and “Earn” is for positive. Am i correct? i hope u will be getting my point?
Thanks for your lessons. I’m only beginner but your explanations are great.
James, could you do me a favor? Answer this please: I have two coins in my hand, each one is count for 10 rubles (but they looks different!), are they equal or fair?

Y’re a nice teacher
Could you halp me to understand my mistake in the first sentence of a quiz? What shows that Sly isn’t Canadian?
When Sly leaves Canada, he will go back to his country. Tłumaczenie- Kiedy Sly opuści/wyjedzie z Kandady, wróci do swego kraju.
wrócić do swego kraju- to go back to one’s country
to go back to one’s country when you leave a country that is not your native country. wracać do swego kraju kiedy opuszczasz jakiś kraj, który nie jest Twoją ojczyzną

This is another compact, fun, learning experience that you made (developed). I will come back to EngVid for more. You really put a lot of life experiences in these few minutes. I really appreciate: Fair = give what is deserved to the appropriate person. Terrific life lesson we often miss.

Hello Sir. Your video is just great, congratulations indeed! I believe that I understood most of so I’d like to write a few lines about it:
I don’t think that other teachers can explain this common mistakes in spoken English better than what you did. I’d like to watch another of your lessons even if I had to do some homework about it, it would be fair. The lesson was really fun because I really enjoyed it a lot and a bit funny at the same time, because of you he,he. I have to say good bye now since I have to go back to work. Warm greetings from Mexico City!
You’re absolutely brilliant teacher, clearly teaching and easy to understand.

It was big fun. Thx
James, your teaching style is FUNNY and i had FUN learning it. U did a FAIR job. I will definitely COME BACK to u.

Excellent, very helpful , thank you very much
I got 10! The lesson was very useful.Thank you!
thank you for all of teaching us.
unfortunetly i am confused about ” come back and go back”.
for example : i am iranian but i live in malaysia, if i want to inform my mother that i am going to go to iran , i should say ” mammy i come back home last week .” or ” mammy i go back home last week ” wich one is correct?
if you are talking to your mom in Iran you have to say i came back.but if you are sitting in Malasia and talking to your mom on skype you have to say i will back,or i am going to back in summer or in specific time.
Can I have you as a privet teacher ?
I am getting my language improved.
The lesson isn’t important to teach students.important is that how do you explain this lesson.So Mr James selected a right way to explain and attract an attention of students.well done.
Where can i use have & had /had & had in the same sentence?Example please.
James, thank you very much. U were amazing and it was fun watching you)
Thank u for this video.
thanks for this funny lesson
you are a good teacher :) and thank you so much
l have a question . you told us another we use it for singular but while l was taking quiz , l made one mistake and what l made mistake is l asked for another beer …… question is correct or incorrect l chose incorrect so l was wrong but beer is not singular so why is another ?
yes it’s singular because you’re ordering just one beer not a lot of beers.
I hope I’m right
and sorry for interfering :)
you DID a great job in this video ;)
Is it fair when you became an English student and I became an English teacher.
You are excellent teacher Jame :)
James, thank you for explain the diferences about these words. I would like to ask you, if you could to speak about “in the ,on the , at the “. Example: I’m in the house? or I’m at the house? Thanks.
James, obrigado por explicar as diferenças entre essas palavras. Gostaria de perguntar se você poderia explicar a respeito das palavras ” in the, on the, at the” . Obrigado.
Thanks for all staffs of engVID.com.
How to use staff was learned from you with the previous video.
People who work in an office………..

Thank you for the lessons
It’s very helpful
I’m curious with the first common spoken mistakes
How about other and others?
What is the difference?
Because I heard you used “others” instead of “other” in your example
You are GREATE
Great lesson, when I go back to my country, I will tell everybody how good teacher you are!
On the site http://www.engvid.com this movie just has a black screen. To get an image I have to go to Youtube.

Thanks a lot!! You’re a funny guy :D :D
you are too smart thanks for help
James you are a great teacher!!! I love your way of explanation and I really enjoy watching your lessons!
James you explain very specifically. I see your lessons everyday. And you are funny too
A very good explanation, I have solved old doubts about these ambiguity words, especially “make/do” and “come back/go back” which are always confused if you don’t have a clear idea of its meanings. Also “fun/funny” generates some doubts sometimes. Thanks a lot, teacher James, it has been a great and useful lesson.
Thanks a lot, dear teacher.
You have awesome way of teaching. Keep going
as always great
thank you Mr James.
Mr. James, what about get back, instead of come back or go back?
There is a song in the Beatles Album Let it Be named Get Back (where you once belonged). Paul wanted that John would come back to Beatles and Yoko Ono go back to its original place (maybe Japan).
You got 4 correct out of 5.
thanks a lot.
Thanks a lot James.
oooo no am very sad
Good lesson teacher i have to watch another video
