hi jon,
this lesson was very good.i really liked your way to teach.great job
jon can you tell me about the use of word “back” in english for instance give back, at the back , back off etc. these and many other expression are quiet confusing

Thursday, February 23rd 2012

Merci beaucoup

Thursday, February 23rd 2012

Thanks, Jon. I really loved this lesson. I was about to suggest Engvid to make a video about it because this is my favorite exercise to practise English. The other day I asked an American friend to do exactly the same exercise with me: he gave me some answers and I had to elaborate the proper questions to his answers. It was a little bit difficult, but very productive because asking questions force us to think in English. Thanks again. Please keep on using your great creativity! ;-)

Monday, March 5th 2012

There is something new in the way you presented your lesson.
You make the viewers THINK in English,which is ignored by most of the teachers.
In fact, engVid teachers are good at making us THINK in English.Keep it up improving more and more effectively.
I would like to have your comments on THINKING ENGLISH.

With Best Wishes,

Hello, Jon! It’s a very nice lesson. But definitely not for beginners! It takes a lot of effort to understand all that you say. I even tried to switch on Google-subtitles but the machine couldn’t recognise some of your words. It’s a pity. I feel frusrated … Anyway, thank you!

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

Hi Teacher,Jon, I agree to your reason. It’s not easy to make a question. You make a great advice. My listening is quite bad, so what I do first is I must try to understand what you are saying if I understand when listening. To me, your pronunciation is very helpful like Rebecca’s. Many thanks for your great advice.

Sunday, April 22nd 2012
