    Ehmmm… I have a comment out of topic: Is it possible signing on our personal profile the results of the quizzes for every lesson?? It’s to rememeber them and trying to make better in future…

    Monday, November 19th 2012

      Not yet, but we will have this feature in the future.

      Monday, November 19th 2012

      It’s a feature we hope to add!

Hello, We are really appreciative for what you are
doing here.

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.

Saturday, September 1st 2012

I got 10 yeaaay :), the lesson was enjoyable but complicated a bit however, I’m sure your way of presenting the lesson was brilliant but I might not have gotten it well, one more thing, can you generously talk slower next times, I always lose the track.
I am in favor with Farhad’s suggestion ^ ^

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Hi my wonderful teacher james
Your lessons are very good and useful as always.
But I have a small questions that confuse me
1- This lesson is boring (it’s true) but when I say
this lesson WAS bored….. Is it true??
2- Im very intersted in learing how to speak germen (it’s true)
why is intersted the right answer?
I think learning always is ongoing and active…!!!?
3- My mother is aging very well .she must be healthy.
Could you tell me another sentence that I use aged.
thank you for this lesson because I was looking for it for long time and I wonder that you answer me as soon as possible.

Saturday, September 1st 2012

it’s so hard i cant understand it so much .3\10

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Thank you so much! I’ve done nine right answers. It was very interested and funny but I’m not able to say that I’m absolutely clear right now. So I gotta look for some additional explanation in the Internet, sorry.

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Great teacher,i love him)

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Saturday, September 1st 2012

Hello James! Once more you taught perfectly! The learning process gets to much better when we learn with a person like you! Congrats!! =]

And James, I have a doubt, which I would be very grateful if you or another teacher could explain on a video. Is about the questions without auxiliary verb. I read about this subject and I got that we do not use auxiliary when the question word is also the subject, but I get so confused on this.
Could EngVid help us on this subject?!
Thanks a lot! ;)

Saturday, September 1st 2012

    I hope they’ll respond to you soon, and they will, I’ll try to help though if I may :) ,,,.As far as I know it’s that simple : When asking about the subject, just replace the subject with the ((WH question)) word ,, for example, JOHN phoned me yesterday ,,, the question will be ((WHO phoned me yesterday)) more examples ,,, someone knows the answer ((who knows the answer?)) ,,, Earthquaqe has happened in Iran recently ((WHATt has happened in Iran ?)) IVAN JOAO asked a question (( WHO asked a question )) how simple that is ,,, sorry for jumping, further explaining to come soon from the teachers

    Monday, September 3rd 2012

Thanks a lot Mr. E :))

Thursday, October 4th 2012

Hey,James. U really make teaching English fun. Uh, I’m also an English teacher (in China)and I like ur videos which are very interesting.As for -ed and -ing adjectives, I think they can be explained a lot more easier. U just need to tell ur students -ing ADJECTIVES are used to modify THINGS and how u think about them,like INTERESTING movie(u think it’s interesting), BORING lecture(u think it’s boring), and -ed ADJECTIVES are used to modify PEOPLE(how someone feels) and something ONLY people can have(look, expression). For example, I’m INTERESTED in it(I,not thing), He’s BORED with it(He,not thing), surprised look(someone’s look). What do u think? :0

Friday, October 5th 2012


Friday, October 5th 2012

Thank you Dr. james

Thursday, October 11th 2012

This and all the other videos are very helpful. And In my opinion, even if mastering some braches of english, these teachings are always valuable in order to prevent one’s english from getting rusty. By the way, Great teacher!! Thanks James

precise, valuable lesson, usefull for all.

Saturday, November 30th 2013

“English grammar, students studying, teachers great.”

Saturday, November 30th 2013

thanks so much for all the lessons-

Tuesday, December 31st 2013

I would explain the difference as: -ed is used mostly for feelings and -ing with characteristics. interesting – a book, a person – that cherecterizes them, and interested – that is a feeling of a person. but thats for elementary students. later on, students learn the other examples by just using them, facing with them on the way.

Thank you very much!

Friday, July 18th 2014

Great lesson!

Friday, July 18th 2014

100 % but in the second time. Thanks James again.

Saturday, August 9th 2014

Thanks for fantastic lesson. I noticed that you present finished action (past) on the right side of the screen. I believe that for most people move to the right is move forward (toward future) and move to the left is move backward (toward past). Maybe it is possible to swap “ongoing action” and “action finished” ?

Wednesday, August 20th 2014

nice man keep it up!

Friday, October 31st 2014

It is a very big problem for my students this subject/theme…how can I help them?

Thursday, November 13th 2014

Let’s make it by easy way to comprehend
ED : how people feel
ING: the things/people that make us fell

Wednesday, December 3rd 2014

Hi. James.
I watched this part all over and over, (like 5 time, maybe?)but I can’t still understand :/.

I think this part is basic in the writing skills. (Or reading skills)

Can you teach me what’s different in this sentences?

1. I’m bored.
2. This lesson is boring.

Sunday, January 25th 2015

Thank you James for teaching me free english lesson.

Saturday, January 31st 2015

Tuesday, January 3rd 2017

too hard on me:(

Saturday, January 7th 2017

Thanks James!

Monday, January 9th 2017

James, your class could be better if you gave us some examples. If you had used senteces during your explanation our class would be better.

Thursday, January 26th 2017

I didn’t understand this lesson and this grammar :(

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Not very easy to assimilate the concepts of this lesson, basically it is not very difficult but it generates doubts when you use “-ing” on the active and “-ed” on the passive. I thought “-ing” was for things or stuff and “-ed” was for the person or human beings. Thanks a lot, teacher James, an interesting lesson.

Monday, March 20th 2017

I’m excited to see that I got 10/10. I believe it happened because the lesson was well delivered by the great James.

Wednesday, March 22nd 2017

hello james .please i need more explication

Alexis González Velázquez. Las Tunas. Cuba

Hello James:
Your presentation was quite nice, in fact, it is a very difficult topic to digest. I hope we could get in touch, though I see you have not posted replies from us. Tnanks in advance for your kind attention.

Friday, April 21st 2017

Great lesson, my son and I enjoy it!:)

Friday, April 21st 2017

sir, may i ask u i bit confused about the answer of quiz
the answer said if:
6. the room is very crowded xxxx..
may i know why we cant say crowding?
i heard if the noun is thing we cant use -Ed adjective.the room is thing, right? so why the answer is “crowded”.
Thanks sir, anyway i’m sorry if my grammar so messy,,hehhe

Tuesday, May 16th 2017

I believe that your explanation wasn’t easy to get it. That diagram has too much letter is quite confusing to be honest. The difference is pretty simple:
ED: it describes feelings or emotions.
ING: it describes characteristics of a particular situation.
Thanks for your lesson, you should make another well-explained lesson.

Monday, June 12th 2017

I whant to thank all spesally Teacher James and Teacher Ronnie they are asome. To be honest with my job and home I have no much time to atent a regular english class but… that is not a excuse during the time at home I set youtube engvid chanel wild do cleaning cooking or laundry or sleeping ☺ honest!
