hey, I understand everithing that you said, but I hace one question about to use HAVE to make a past. I have a big problem with present perfect because I don’t have it in portuguese.

Your accent is canadian or american?

Profile photo of zevictormed zevictormed

    I think James’ accent is Canadian, but I detect a slight british or perhaps caribbean something there too. For example, when he says, ‘past’, his ‘a’ is a little like ‘ah’ as in ‘paw’ or jaw. Hmmm, maybe he has parents of british or caribbean background. Now, I am a Toronto girl, so it’s easy for me to hear this. But, definitely not American, I would guess.


thank you James………I love it


thanx ur lessons r very easy n useful. i am learning english n this is very helpful.


I can’t speak english.I don’t know why. I have a lot of new vocabulary in mind ,but I can’t use them. I find dificulty to selecting the right words to express my ideas. I usually stop speaking because of this problem. I need some advises.

Profile photo of reda2222 reda2222

    I think the same … I understand much of a conversation in english, but I can’t speak … do not structure the sentences.


    Hi there,
    U know,everything’s possible if u want n try!In my book,1 of the best way 2 improve ur speaking as well as possible is 2 lissten n 2 watch alot.Then u shold speak with urself
    n u have 2 use the new words u know.Don’t worry,it takes time but
    it does really work.I’ve experienced it by myself as well.
    Remember:U r able.
    Get it a try n do ur best.
    Goodluck with ur English.

        is not the same using and knowing dude if you wannna speak english correctly you should speak that is it.


    you need to learn listening a lot because you need to learn with your ears not wiht you eyes you got me man


Just great!




I love you guys so easy learn from here .
Thanks so much for awesome work !!


some times i dont understand if i need to say: he is? or is he? whats the difference is it the same? as are they? or they are?

Profile photo of marlon1992 marlon1992

    hi, marlon, I think that we use are they? and is he? to formulate a question. but he is and they are we use them to say an affirmative sentence.

    Profile photo of reda2222 reda2222

wow nice


i like you


i like the way u teach with, i like to keep going with u and i like ur jokes too


the best english class i´ve ever had you are absolutly amazing…take care


I have the same question of marlon 1992. “Are they?” and “He is” are both correct? Why?

Thanks for the lesson!!


    What kind of situation:
    You use He is… when you have clue about something:
    -Mark is a nica guy!
    -Yes, he is!

    When you have doubt about it or you are surprise you use Is he?, look:

    -Mark is gay!
    -Is he?, I didn’t know!

    It is correct for any form of person (he,she they… wherever)

    ok, Teacher is correct what I said?

    Profile photo of zevictormed zevictormed

      Thanks, man!
      But Im still havent understood why James said “He is?” (question) to show the surprise of the situation.

      Please James, help us!
      Thanks one more time!


Thanks a lot)but i still have a question.what is the difference in using the answer “is he” instead of “he is”?

Profile photo of farhad93 farhad93

    Give me examples.

    Profile photo of zevictormed zevictormed

      he is kinda ridiculous.
      he is?
      is he?

      Profile photo of farhad93 farhad93

        ok, let me see:

        -He is a kind of ridiculous!
        -Is he? (I am very surprised)
        -He is! (I agree)

        I think that you can say “is he?” and “he is?” but I think that Is he is more correct to make a question.

        Please, James, look if it is correct.

        Profile photo of zevictormed zevictormed

          but you missunderstand me..both of them are questions.so what want is to be able to differentiate them.in any case thank you for your attention)so James could you possibly explain it to us?thank you in advance)

          Profile photo of farhad93 farhad93

        As an English s2dent,I suppose the best answer to ur question is using question tag,like this:
        He’s kind and ridiculous.Isn’t he?!
        But if u wanna use just he is or is he,u can say:He is!? or Is he??
        (in this way u can chang ur tone) However I told u the best response.
        Hope I could help.
        Goodluck with ur English.

        Profile photo of fatiima fatiima

          thanks to you)))

          Profile photo of farhad93 farhad93

          yes u r right. use tag Q.

You are so Great James. I understand more about English with your lessons. Thanks you.

Profile photo of rigelleengvid rigelleengvid

Some people have a lot of knowledge but fail to make us understand it. I have been researching for years and have never found a person so creative in helping people understand – James, you are a genius! I could listen to you forever! Keep doing what you do my man, the world will be smarter thanks to your skills.


Thank you!!! You are fantastic!

Profile photo of simau simau

thank you so much but i still get confused about the verb like have been, had been , will have been…e t c.can you help me with that? thank you


James, you are a very good teacher! But, considering the fact that you talk so quickly, your classes can not be directed to people who want to learn English. Instead, your classes are for students who ALREADY have a high level of knowledge. Anyone who is in basic or intermediate level will hardly understand half of the words you say. So, IMHO, you should try talking slower than that.

Thank you James!
You’re a great teacher!

Hi James
In first surprise question you said are you? then when you said someone is guy. then you put he is? as a surprise sentence, is it correct? because we know that we have to put auxiliary verb first. I think we should say Isn’t he? not He is?
I am looking forward to your more explanation.

Auxiliary verbs with generally speaking may use action and time, “to be” for the action and “to do”, “will” and “to have” for the time, and also they are used for short answers and polite interest. You have told us that “feign” is another auxiliary verb which means to pretend to be interested with good manners and it has been the first time I have learnt this topic, a new concept for me. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, a good review of the auxiliary verbs.
