reemabousaid

Thanks James for this lesson, it is very interesting. It was a little bit confusing for me, those verbs are a bit hard to learn, but you cleared it up for me.

Aleachi

First of all , a lot of thanks to u Sir for the inevitable information . let me come to the point, here i have got a doubt which is not related to this topic.Even then, I hope the doubt i have will be revealed by you. the doubt is like this -” what are the things we want follow while learning English ?” how can we change the question mentioned above from interrogative sentences to assertive sentences. I think whether it can be changed as this – They want to get to know what the things are we want follow while learning English or They get to know what the things we want follow while learning English are .please define which of these is the right one and elaborate why it is so. Hope you will correct it. Sir ,I have asked many but no one has given me the answer. please consider this as important.

niyas143

Yes,yes and once more yes! You are the best teacher!)

vovchick

Thanks a lot, James.Exellent job.However, I have an issue with this sentence “I got a pay raise last week”. I think “a pay rose by itself”, and not I raised the pay.Sorry,I really got mixed up))It’s really difficult for me to understand

nachodka

    “Raise” as a noun means “salary increase”, that’s why we say “pay raise”. Just remember that, very simple.

    vladandevla

      Thanks! Now I got it over. It’s really easy.

      nachodka

A very interesting lesson. thanks James for your efferts .

Miramis

    may we help each other
    Miramis

    kimooo

Chayapa.j

I like this video very much because it helps us to figure out some similar words. James’s talking is very interesting and easy to understanding. I think it worth to share. I was shared it to my Facebook.

allenbaby

i wouldl like to go back this lesson

khadar Ahmed Ibrahim

Thank you for a really informative and useful lesson. No bad feelings, but I just want to inform you that in British English they say “pay rise”, not “pay raise”. So I think we, international English learners, can use both variations.

praktik

    He didn’t mention any phrasal verb (pay rise) – he was talking about simple verbs.

    He didn’t mention wages or salaries & the money we get – he was talking about
    prices & the money we pay.

    And finally he had no purpose to discuss british-american-languige-differences (which he is certainly aware of).

    pay rise = an increase in WAGE or SALARY (pay raise – N. American)

    raise = lift or move to a higher position or level (including prices) – James’ lesson point

    Avec

Thank a lot! Your lessons are so intresting!

Kuanysh Zhakupov

Good lesson teacher, thank you!

Vitao1800

yengkong96

Very difficult subject, but your lesson was so clear! Now I have to practice.
I suggest to prepare another lesson about same words, with new examples.
…Now the test ;-((
Thanks a lot, James!

Angela M.

Very interesting and fun lesson, James. Thanks a lot! Studying the topic, I found out that the verb lie (meaning not to tell the truth) is a regular verb. These words are really confusing!

Valderí Andrade

Thank you James,

Very difficult lesson I have ever had! Can you repeat it ?

emrahbulduk

Thank you so much Mr. James :)

Nebras

Very good lesson!!Thanks!

Raks

    Yes. I agree with you… Good lesson. These are really confusing words when we are using them. If you would like to try your English language skills you would get in touch with me. No problem.

    John B

Do tell me the type of error and correction in this sentence?
we took a tent, a cooler, and a sleeping bag.

nelblue

Great lesson, as usual. Thanks, Sir James.

Sonia1234

Thanks James! you always make me laugh and learn!

vaness77able

It’s difficult for me but thank you, James

Rozenn

Very well explained, slow enough and comprehensible! :) I would only add that LIE in present participle is LYING. It’s tricky, so be careful:
She is lying in her bed. She was lying to me.

Zuzi

Hi James, Good lesson!
I’ve viewed your videos and I like a lot the way that you teach. Thanks!!!

MARTONIO

Thanks Mr. James for your great and clear presentation about these often confused words!

It arose some initial doubts, but now I can lay my head on the pillows with relieve. You helped me a lot to finally understand the difference about these words, I am not lying.

Fabio Cicerre

Dear James Thank Your Very Much for Teaching nice lesson

Kirtisinh Jadeja

i got all correct , thanks James

Oussouby94

Maybe English is a bit strange language but Russian is much much more crazier :)

VitaliyVitrenko

    i have a strong sensation, that all languages have theirs particulars) it’s just why so tough to study forein language all in all. And yes – during time it takes for lerning forein language you really understand your own language much better (and mismatches in it respectly))

    Kubanez

Hello! Thank you for an interesting lesson! It is difficult to use the words which are similar to each other.

    engVid Moderator

Kubanez

you are the best James.
Thank you for this important lesson.

diala samadeh

Hi James! I really enjoy watching your videos. You teach with love and this is very contagious.
I’ve been studying for an Exam in English (TKT) and I need to solve a doubt, if possible.
In one of the exercises, I had to choose the correct option about the uses of grammatical structures. The sentence was: I don’t know “if” he’s coming.
The options were:
a) talk about a condition
b) discuss a doubt
c) introduce a reported question
The right answer is letter C, but I really DID NOT understand WHY.
Could you help me, please?
Thank you very much.

Larissa Pelicer

I do agree with the rest of the comments and must congratulate you for this lesson. It has clarified the words explained, usually confusing for non English natives. Score 9 out of 9 with some tiny help of notes. ;P. Let me encourage you with other difficult English words!.

Is the next example correct?:
Something arose at the moment we rose for the national anthem, a woman raised her kid on her shoulders and he fell down.

thank you!

urupad

This lesion is very useful.
Thank you!

yungchih

Mr E is so cute!

Nguyenvan31

Very useful. I have to admit I’m still doing mistakes with words like that (similar words), when I have to use them NOW (quickly).

zdenek

MrJames, thanks for sharing the knowledge.

Mark Viana

To come up is the synonym of “arise”, “occur”, “happen”, and etc. For example, whatever comes up, we will be ready and handle it as possible as we can. Right? Is there anyone who can correct me? Thank you.

Bladedrinks

wow, i got 9/9!
i did choose the words with confidence. and now i found i had choose them never knowing “why”.

Thank you hoss. Have a lovely day:)

Erhan Konak

Honestly You’re the best teacher I’ve ever seen

kotoz

Thank you for the lesson, James! You have chosen very well this subject, since the foreingners usually get confused with theses words. Besides, I know another meaning for the verb “raise” related to animals. For example: “They raise chickens and pigs in that farm”.

Eduardo França

You are very artistic, James, and, as a consequence, “understandable”. Your explanations are easy for understanding and fun. I enjoy watching the lessons sort of that. Thank you!

Oblivioner

Hello everybody!
What about being my pen pal? I think it’s an opportunity to improve our english levels.
More then, I can tech you, an interested person, the Russian language (if you want, of cource).
We also can become colleagues, may become friends and etc.
I just learn the English, but learners can help to up each other’s knowledges.
And a friendship with foreingers is the most beautiful thing!
What do you say, humans? Give me your answers: golikov.zabvevatel@yandex.ru

Oblivioner

    Hello, Danila! I am also looking for a person who I can practise my English with. Are you interested in speaking by Skype? I will send you an e-mai now. See you!

dxc1987

OMG. after many views I got this lesson.. So good! So hard!

Cristiana Titi

it won’t be enough how i thank you for this lesson. Because, finally i grasped this what are the differences among these words; lie,lay, rise and raise. And i am sharing same thought with you about this guy probably dead who has invented english. Darn tootin he’d laugh ass off. And i’ve been wondering since that day i’ve arisen out of my mother’s womb, who was this guy? Of course i am lying from where i lay down. i am not wondering this guy. if i were him, i’d do same thing. Also my best wishes is going to him for that. :) i’d like to rise out of my couch but i just lay my laptop on the table and watched your lesson. Again, thank you, that was one of those your funny and educative videos. i just tried what i learnt today. i didn’t want to be mean. ;)

sebernet

i love the way you teach..you are raising my english…

anuj7783

Dear Teacher,
I am confused the way of use of two words: Degree Celsius and Celsius Degree.
Before, i used Celsius degree but,sometimes, people say that it’s Degree Celsius. So, I don’t know exactly which one is correct. Besides that, in Oxford Dictionary, it’s Celsius degree.
But it said that this is used for Kelvin scale only.
Could you please explain to me which one is correct?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much.

Sophia Hoang

asienka93

SOPHORN NOUV

Excellent lesson James, Thanks a lot

Maxwillar

During the quizz, a question arose in my mind (is this sentence correct?)

Beatrice

In case someone says: I raised credit in the bank (funding) to invest in my own business. Isn’t it a third meaning for the verb raise, instead of the two meanings you presented in the video class?

Edmilson Medeiros

If I say: I will lay my body in that bed. It sounds to equivalent to I will lie down in that bed.

Edmilson Medeiros

    It sounds equivalent to I will lie down in that bed.

    Edmilson Medeiros

When the judge enters the courtroom, everyone must “burp”.
I laughed so much at this. Hahaha

M kartal

Hi Everyone! Hi Mr. James! This lesson is great :D In my native language “to lay” and ” to lie” have the same translation so it always was difficult to understand how to use them correct. Now I know and I’m glad I could watch this video. Thank you so much, James! 7 correct out of 9.

Studynoobie

Thanks James for a good explanation!

Alex-1956

If someone, let’s say, collapses or if you will bring your kids to bed, is it correct to use “lay”?

By the way, great lesson. It helped me with the rise vs. raise explanation.

Thanks.

very good lesson, in my opinion “Lay or Lie” are one of most confusing words in the English grammar, by the way, is it the same salary wage and salary raise?
