Dude you are awesome, you know it.))

poslegg

As always, you are amazing teacher (I adore your lessons). And I know that you know this too (not “so” ;))) – I remember one of your last lessons).
I have a couple ideas (topics) for your (or for one of your colleagues from EngVid) next lessons:
1. what’s the difference between “a lot of” and “lots of” (are they always the same?).
2. I always wanted to understand “be to” in comparison with “have to” and “must”. The dictionary doesn’t have clear explanation so (not “too”!!! – i still remember that) you could make a great lesson on this topic (I’m sure about it).
Anyway, thanks a lot (neither “a lot of” nor “lots of” – I’m sure about this, but I don’t now why (yet!) and I hope that one of the next lessons will explain that). Best wishes and good luck!

JustMe

6/10 I WILL TRY AGAIN

elizawaad

Hello James,
I made two mistakes in the quiz. The use of “in” instead of “for” before “a while” was a well-designed trick. Keep up the good work, man.

Khaled

erasil

Hello James,
I made two mistakes in the quiz. The use of “in” instead of “for” before “a while” wasn’t well explained in your video, I think. Anyway, good work, man.

lucille

Thanks for everything!

MRM

I don’t know how to express my Happiness while being with you guys!

mrm13740

teacher, in this quiz, i got 9/10.
may i make sure the difference between
“a while” and “awhile”?
Are they same meaning: for time?
and “a while” is a noun
“awhile” is a verb, right?

Hsiao-han

    Hi!
    A while and awhile have the same meaning. A while is a noun and awhile is an adverb, its simple. For example: I slept for a while or I slept awhile = its the same meaning. Hope this helps U.

    apolischuk85

I can’t follow you, sorry

jadwiga

Nice Lesson.
I got 9/10

Yousef

a while is to be used for a period of time whereas awhile is to be used for a short period of time as in this exp we chatted for a while, stand here awhile ..! :)..

baset

    good comparison, short for awhile and not so short for a while, easy to remember. Thanks…

    angardiobel

you’re so funny. i like it.

southernstar

It was very useful. Thank you!

sheyda77

great ,thanks.

sovannaranou

thanks teacher! this lesson is very useful.

southernstar

The simplest advice is to recognize that the adverb awhile means ‘for a short time’, and then attempt to plug in the phrase “for a short time” in place of the questionable form. If that does not work, use a while: “We’ll be there in for a short time”? No, so it has to be We’ll be there in a while. “For a short time ago”? No, so it has to be A while ago. “We drove for a short time”? Yes, so it can be We drove awhile, and even though “a while” is possible here, the usual tendency is to use the adverb. This can helps U guys!

apolischuk85

nghiaphan

Hey Black man; you are doing more acting than teaching. You should change your teaching style. We don’t need your style we want proper English lesson.

bajra07

    I have approved your comment so that other people can laugh at you.

    I have some advice for you. If you don’t like the teacher’s videos, don’t watch them.

    engVid

      the teacher is amazing I like him the most , keep up James we like your way :)

      jansiet

I got 80 too.I miss in question 8 and 9.

mickeekung

Why should people laugh at me? I maintained here a reality matter. Don’t take it negative be positive. If I am wrong please forgive me once. Thank you.

bajra07

    Look Mr. Bajra, rather than criticism and lecturing on positivity, tell us about your achievements!!! This man you had criticised has introduced 118 lessons until now FOR FREE.
    Can you simply answer, what have you done for humanity?!? Be brave to answer please.

so, if I’ve really understood, “A While” it’s used to time periods that we can count, and “Awhile” it’s for time periods that we can’t count, right?

Dear James, how are you, I am really happy to join ur classes through Internet, I was ur student at Hansa in Toronto ^_^, any way my question is why we say this will take a while not awhile ?? another thing is we waited awhile why not for a while, please explain, I am confused, thanks

THANKS A LOT.

melva

Thank you James! I’ve been hoping for a video like this quite awhile.

houdah

Because of the existing of “a” article, I’m just wondering whether “a while” can be countable or not.

Mike011

By the way, thanks James for the vid.

Mike011

primous

nrban

Hi James. Not exactly bad;( with my score. But by the way a million thanks for this. Happy day to all teachers and members of this engvid. More power!

Noraisa

9/10. But that was very helpful.

xbesosx

why Q7..is awhile?
we want a while = we want a time ….
“want” is following with a”Noun”
awhile is adverb!..means describes an action..where’s an action in “we want”?
THnx for u james,,i like ur way which u ues in teaching ..☺

Sonia1234

I’m still confuse…..

zibel

Omg!! This lesson it was the hardest one to me. It took a while to get how to do quiz.

Reza Bokneh

Thank you sir.

Bhuendra

great !James ,but and i got 7out of 10

michael xie

Oop! my fault! “in a while”! for a while, they are noun phrase! I understood James, however, I looked at several sites about this contrast. Everyone talks in the same way, with different expressions, but I found someone who explains clearly. If anyone needs it, they can find it on “Grammarist.com”(Awhile vs. a while). Have a good weekend.

lymourao

Thanks to baset who explains a little more the difference in the quantity of time, short time with “awhile” and not so short with “a while”, then it’s possible to have a clue when you hear this expression, therefore the difference between a noun and an adverb, I have doubted in the first question but now I can understand it better than before. It’s the first time that I find these expressions after a lot of time studying English, and so I have also found santi41, a curious coincidence, the world isn’t enough big to lose in it. Thanks a lot, teacher James, a short but important question to learn, very good performance as always.

angardiobel

I spent awhile until i finished the quiz i got 90%

ALKEBSEE
