God bless you.

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Thanks for this lesson. :)

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Thank you very much, James. This is a very useful video lesson. I find hard to remember the word order of the adjectives. (You’re right: Like in Spanish, in Portuguese, we say “gato preto”, black cat.) I’ll practice:
1. Quantity (a/number)
2. Quality (good, bad)
3. Size (big)
4. Age (old)
5. Shape (round)
6. Colour (yellow)
7. Origin (Where?)
8. Material (wood)
I won’t forget! Bye!

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Thank you so much James!!
But I found a contradiction between this video and another lesson from Alex when he was just a teenager XD. According to him, Material goes before Origin. Are they interchangeable or who is wrong???I checked it in engVid webpage before typing this message just to make sure I´d learned Alex´ lesson properly ;)
Check it out:

Thanks from Spain and nice pronunciation in Spanish “gato negro” :)

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Sunday, July 30th 2017

I will not never forget this lesson , because It was very important to me.

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Well, we have revised grammatical syntax, how to build a noun with adjectives before it, what are the verbs and the adverbs, what is a pronoun and its classes, it is easy to understand it but not so easy to remember all types of them, how to use them and where we can write an adverb in a perfect or continuous tense, how are its meaning and pronunciation but we should follow to practice until we achieve our skills. Thanks a lot, teacher James, a good revision of how to build a noun with adjectives before it.

Sunday, July 30th 2017

Tuesday, October 10th 2017

Hello! I’ve got a question the sentence: The man seemed ill, seemed is a verb for sure, but following our university professor’s test that says whenever you see a verb ending in ing or ed, and it’s not transitive, then that’s an adjective. This test is not perfect identifying part of speech, so Professor, how can you make it perfect? thank you :)

Sunday, October 22nd 2017

Well done James! If we want to learn English well, we need to know the basic grammar rules confidently. Nevertheless, that adjective order is really hard to memorize, at least for the Brazilians, like me. There is nothing similar in Portuguese. Do you really follow it when you are speaking? Fortunately, I don’t use so many adjectives for the same noun.

Regards from Rio!

Monday, October 23rd 2017

Friday, October 27th 2017
