    Gender is rarely taught in language courses, particularly with this focus in mind (informal spoken language).

    James, your good sense of humor makes a real difference in your video-lessons.

    Your teaching style is unique!!!

    Thanks for this excellent video!

“Free drinks for you~ Hahahahahaha…” Give me three minutes to laughing.
There is an Indian restaurant sitting near my living place. The Indian waiters call my Chinese friend “Bro” every time, and they blame my friend if they didn’t see my friend went to their restaurant for long time… So what my friend do is take another way to skip that restaurant.

This is a great lesson! It’s really hard to talk about gender in English, because we can’t distinguish nouns females from males, like it is in Portuguese. In Portuguese, for example: Friend->AmigA (female) AmigO (male).

For Q3) I thought girlfriend in one word only means close relationship and girl friend means female friend.

Profile photo of mayfourth mayfourth

thank you. this will help a lot, mainly the part of calling guys a groups where is there only one boy. just a doubt if i say “that guy” i’m refering forcely to a boy or both? because i could say that boy or that girl instead.

Hello James ! Thank you !
Can you tell us something about “mates”. I heard it much times in tv shows. Hook in Once upon a Times call the others “mates” in Neverland. And considering the reaction of Donna in Doctor Who when he ask her to be his mate, it seems to have many meanings according to the context, right ?

James, I also don’t understand about answer of 3d question. Why I can call my female friend as “girl friend” when I’m also girl? I thought “girl friend” is used just for describe when we speak about close relationship between girl and boy.

James, thanks a lot for very useful lesson! There are two more expressions I have heard many times: 1) Hi folks – used in the US a lot, would you mind to explain the correct meaning of that? I heard this expression to be used for the group of people, who would not be appropriate to call guys anymore – like a married couple in their 50´s or even the whole family. 2) Hi there – I do not feel comfortable to use such a addressing – but I am fine to use it in the e-mail – some time ago I heard that to say hi for example to a shop assistant or coffeehouse salesperson – is such an addressing correct? Thank you and greetings from Prague!:-)

I’ve made a mistake in question #6
– friend
– acquaintance

Can’t get it right, because I’ve never heard the word “acquaintance”.

So for example if you come to a bar regularly and have a drink, but you’re not really close to barista and barely talk to each over, he will name you a “friend”, right? But this would mean “acquaintance” or he will say directly like this: “Hi acquaintance, what would you like to drink?”

Profile photo of Tiller77 Tiller77

I really had fun and understand now how to use them correctly! You are so right James, keep silent until u know more, my male colleague keeps saying his partner. When we were puzzled if he is a gay, turned out that’s his girlfriend ^_^¦¦¦

Hey! I find your lesson a little bit confussing with so many coments…and could be a little bit annoying if someone is homosexual…as me.

i can see there are many ladies so you can call ” girlfriend ” for a woman . just in case you have a company at home you are just friends. you said a guy it is a game of words . his mother is of mature age at 40 years old . maybe i call her “guys” since she is not medium- aged who is between 55 and 69 years old .is it correct?
