Hi James,
First of all I would like to thank you for this good lesson, and I’m sorry I didn’t got a big score, but next time I will.

I try to keep up with the latest engVid videos and I think today’s lesson is really helpful. I improved my understanding and feeling of using between “Excuse me?” and “Sorry?”. I mostly don’t understand what native speaker said at first hearing, so I often said “Excuse me?”, but today I understood that I’d better use “Sorry?” in such situation. I think that engVid videos are also very good for improving listening skills. I try to watch the videos without subtitles if possible, but I felt teacher James speak at a relatively faster speed so I watch his video with subtitles on and I really have to concentrate video not to miss any information he presents. I always appreciate his helpful lessons.

Thank you so much James I will write a letter to someone.

thank you teacher James

Wednesday, June 3rd 2020

This is really helpful! Thank you, James. BTW – recently I’ve come across the phrase “Excuse you”, used in situations when someone did something inappropriate and didn’t apologize for that. By saying “Excuse you” you intend to persuade them to act properly.
