    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.

ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

Thank you for this excellent cultural language class.(could you understand my idea?)

britobias

^_^ o:O

ElSayed Mahmoud

☺️ I got 100% correct ,so proud.

Rion

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).

sabrinafreitas

Dear Bro, lol -.- just kidding… I learn a lot with your lessons… Thank you very much!!!

cwardleon

Hey guy! It´s good watch you tech us early in the year when the temperatures in Canada are freezing how you can leaving home in such temperatures?

grazisil13

I had a lot of fun watching this lesson, James! You made me laugh and learn at the same time, which is great! Greetings from Brazil!

anandafg

    Yeah, laughing and learning go hand in hand in James’ video-lessons.

    Regards

    Regino

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

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.

babbul

I know,it’s kinda late(1:43pm), but it’s never too late to learn something new! Thank you, James.
Oh, I see lots of Brazilians around here, let’s keep on learning guys!

babylima

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 ?

annie974

funny

siptas

HI James!! I do like your lesson and thank you so much for teaching.

teerawat1985

oscargutierrez502

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.

Tatiana Borduleva

yaymeswift

aleshgo

    HiHumrangcuagio, yeah James speaks fast, but this makes his lessons more challenging.
    Watch the video as many times as possible -with subtitles-it helps a lot.

    Regards

    Regino

      and it is possible read the text of his speech at the direct address of youtube.

Regino

its great. 100% correct.

phutho

Good to know, sis! By the way! I suppose there is no problem calling you “brother” if we go to the same cult church or we are in the same mason organisation…

geotip

Thanks Mr for the fruitful lesson

safee

Hmmm, why I shouldn’t say “brother” to black man, even he is not my friend or family? All people are brothers and sister aren’t they?

Marini2

Ahmed Abu Jarad

100 I’m proud too

ThiagoAlvez

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!:-)

johnco

I loved it. Thanks. It was absolutely helpful and for sure I will suggest this web site and your videos to my friends and clients.

I’m not sure where to write, but I’d like to see some lessons about making renovation in an appartment and building houses. There are many words and phrases I don’t know how to use correct because I’m not specialist in that.

chiming

intersting @@ Thank u!

trannhan.91

i got 80% great video!

jeffmir

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?”

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 ^_^¦¦¦

AnnieCab

Reinaldo Vieira

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.

drmozart

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?

aprendo1
