Thank you so much teacher James.
I have a question about “proven” I tried to get the meaning from Dictionaries but I couldn’t.

jalalsfs

    Hi, jalalsfs. “Proven” is the past participle of the verb “to prove”. It means to confirm that something is truth based on arguments or evidences.

    Daniel

hi I like your way of teaching it’s great but if you add interactif courses it would be better since we need to practice our english with native speakers.Thank you.

soulynara

It proved to be really difficult to know the difference between those two, I scored only 80 out of 100. Anyway, this has been very interesting and and quite unusual way of explaining the matter. Thanks a lot for it!

Constantin

Based on previous lessons I presume ,James is good Teacher…

mieto1969

    I like your example :)

    hakem

Thank you for this lesson. This side is great!!! But can you help me??? If I say I guess or I assume, it´s all the same or is there a difference??

Iris

I disagree with the third question. Usually the police ask about murders, criminals and so on. And I don’t need any evidence to suppose such questions, because this way of things seems obvious.

Vall70

Like the sun that comes up every morning.

Vall70

James is a great teacher!!!!!

Keele

James you rock!!!! Really enjoy your videos, they have helped me tremendously.

Celia

Nice lesson James. Surprisingly I never care about presume and assume but after this lesson I assume that I will use them in more more efficient manner :-) By the way your presumption in the last question is correct and many of us surely revise it again. Thank You :))

vishnu6887

I’ve learnt something new. TQ!!!

Ekieen

Actually I never cared about the word presume any way I’ve learned something new today . thanks a lot James . forgot to say I got 70 of 100 possible .

libyano

Haya

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TEACHER

ENJEE

useful lesson. I liked the sentence in the quiz that says James is on trial now FOR STEALING COMIC BOOKS. LOL

issa88

Expect or Suspect or Anticipate

That is similar topic compare to this lesson.

Would you make some footage about those worlds? Please.

krzysztof70

My first lesson in this new year. I assume my good student personality again.

sanosuken

2. Don’t presume that you know me! We’ve just met!

If I want to impart some knowledge, I will use Assume else if I want chide you, I will use Presume.
============

3. I assumed the police at least asked them some questions about the murder.

If I want to say something about experiences about the police, I will use Presume.
=============

8. Thomas the Turtle had an unassuming smile when he saw the beautiful new turtle at work.

You said: unassuming = normal
Really? Have you got an normal smile if you see the beautiful woman?

krzysztof70

    Hi F70,
    These are very pertinent and insightful comments, man. I assume that you are a competent speaker of English. However, your remark about question 8 in the quiz was a bit philosophical. I think we can behave unassumingly(normally) even when we are in the presence of a beautiful woman

    Khaled

Loved the lesson. Loved it even more when I saw native speakers making mistakes! Best wishes!

Zuza

great lesson as always.thank you james for every single word you teach us, i assume you’ll add more videos to enrich this beautiful collection.

rachidov

thank you very much teacher

nano

I assume that I need to lear English,And presume that I don’t know.

Jose a garcia

thanks for a great lesson, James. It has helped me to understand the difference between assume and presume

tsetsegmaa

I have two questions false. Assume and presume have the same meaning than the french verbs assumer, présumer (If I understood this lesson and my dictionaries)
I don’t know how think a native English speaker but I think theses two verbs are ambiguous :
In my language I must take care before to use assumer or présumer!
please Jame would you tell me if native Engish speakers have the same problem than me ?
Thank you very much and happy new year to all Engvid teachers !

vilainpetitcrapaud

assume and presume are intersting words,I haven’t herd them so I have some problems when I have to say assume in a sentence.I have some hesitations when I think what I have to say..assume or presume? ;)

manuela

Hi, first of all happy new year. I watched the video which i found really interesting but something is bothering me. You “presumed” that in France people are “presumed guilty” but it’s wrong. It’s written in the declaration of human right of 1791. And the most troubling is that it isn’t even say to be true in the american constitution. here is the proof: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presumption_of_innocence.
I read the 5,6,9 articles of the american constitution like it is say in the wiki article and i didn’t found any proof. So i conclude that it is an “assumption” made by american people that they are “presumed” innocent and if you take into consideration the patriot act you can be “presumed guilty” that’s scary -_-, (http://www.examiner.com/article/un-patriotic-act-presumes-you-re-guilty-until-proven-innocent)
So have a nice day and thanks for the video they are really helping me to improve my English.

Raphael

Fantastic lesson! You rock!

jrgndk

I love it the QUIZ I assumed 90 % .. My ” assumed” it is correctly ?

Cássia Fernanda

haxel

Thank you for this interesting lesson :)

Lora

Actually we use presume more in the uridical terminology. Some facts are presumed and you don’t need to prove them in the court ,but everything is according the law , what si presumed and what is not.

Lora

Hi, James!
Can u please make a lesson on “predominant” vs “dominant”?
One more thing; is it make or do a lesson?
Thanks a million!

osama91

Hallo James!Thanks for all the lessons.Please,to you talk slowly.

wertyk

God it is tricky! I have quite deep curiosity in words and expressions as English is my second language,here I have tried to master the correct meanings of these two quite tricky words.I still feel a bit wobbly about them,but with frequent repetitions I hope I`ll learn it properly.And a big thank you teacher…

coskun Toktamis

thanks teacher james!
about the last question of the quiz,you can say it again!
it was really nice :-)

Nina.

thanks for these kind of precious lessons. I wonder that what are the differences between “persist” and “insist” ? I am looking forward to watching about it? because I haven’t come up with this issue for a long time. thankss.

claudio77

Hi James
As you told,I do not assume that I understand it thoroughly. However base on my quiz result,I could presume it.
Best Regards

artimiz007

Hmm, I presume this lesson was one of the most difficult lessons on EngVid for me.
Anyhow, I hope I was able to manage it successfully only because of you.
What’s more I do want to believe that there is not difference or more precisely It makes not a big difference between (the) words as guess, suppose versus presume, assume.

kazumi7akiyama

    there is no difference*

    kazumi7akiyama

Thanks James. I presume I am going to be fluent speaker if I keep watching your fruitful lessons.

Derya07

I got 5 out of 10. The last question got me so bad. I presume I need to watch the video again.

cadburie

the two words of assume and presume confuse me for a long time , in my ordinary life and work , i often could not differeciate the usage of the two words, today’s lesson is useful for me even though i am still a little confused.

baofeng235

thank you very much. very useful !

Soei

I assume this lesson as better as I presume about my honest way to learn English, though not always I can presume to be successful in this way but I assume my responsibility to get it in the future. You may be in a doubtful situation sometimes but it’s sure you will be happier working out it, it’s my case. Thanks a lot, teacher James, I think you can build a tongue-twister with these two words.

angardiobel

Hi James, I would like to ask you two questions.
1. Is it really true that you are presumed guilty in French legal system?
2. Could you also say “I presume you have a computer”? (I won’t be able to watch your videos without computer though). Thanks for next valuable lesson. (P.S. my nickname in English should be pronounced “voyte”;) Take care.

wOojti

Thanks, for this video.

Richard Rivas Mercedes
