    Hi Mujde — Unfortunately, the Turkish government blocks videos from YouTube. All the videos on this site are currently served from YT, so you will not be able to watch the lessons unless you find a way to watch YouTube.

    Müjde you have to change DNS Settings if you want to watch these videos blocked by Turkish government.
    I am writing in Turkish.
    “Tercih edilen DNS sunucusu: 4 2 2 1
    Diğer DNS Sunucusu : 4 2 2 2”
    I hope it is handy for you.

Hi,James! Your lessons are incredibly interesting and engaging. I have a couple of questions to you. I am an advance learner of English language but I have a problem (which I think most English lerners face). When it comes to speaking all my vocabulary and just knowledge of the language dissapears. Is there any method to use to develop speaking abilities. Thank you in advance!

Maya

    Here’s an advice: try role-playing. For instance, get a good movie on DVD, set the language and the subtitles to English (or better, get the movie script off the Internet), and try speaking as actors do. Then, when you’ll know whole dialogues by heart, try ‘acting’ the scenes as naturally as possible. Remember to turn the subtitle off, or you’ll end up looking at people’s feet in everyday’s life! ;-) Joking…

Hello James, I would like to thanks for your class. I’m from Brasil, Rio de Janeiro, and this is my second class with you and it’s excellent.
I don’t speak and write englis very well, but I’ll try to learn englis in this ENGVID. Sorry about my mistakes in this sentence but I want to thanks you so much.

You are doing a good job. Your teaching method is an unique one and is very gripping. Your ability to draw some good pictures relevent to the class is appreciable.Is it possible to conduct the class with english subtitles.That will be useful to most learners.

Thank you for your interesting lessons, again.

thanks you

Great lesson. It really helped me out.

So, idioms, expressions and slangs are synonyms, right?
I guess the words “idiom” and “expression” are more like formal and professional words than the word “slang”.

P. S. Is there any video about when to use single quotation marks (‘), when to use common one (“), and where do I need to place full stop when quotation mark is used?
Is there any difference about these two marks at all? I ask this because there is a difference in my language.

P. P. S. James, have you noticed anything strange about the way you write letter ‘w’?
It is kind of funny, you know what I mean. :)

    The difference between idioms and expressions is not major. Slang, though, refers to informal, often incorrect speech. Slang can also be single words. Idioms and expressions are made up of more than one word.

    There is a difference between these marks, but there is no lesson on engVid yet covering this topic.

    As for where to put the period when using quotation marks, it depends on what writing you are doing. Newspapers often place the period after quotation marks, while in a lot of academic writing, it is kept in. You will have to check the “style guide” for whatever field you are writing in.

    I will let James answer about his handwriting.

Perfect idioms!!!

Profile photo of LuizHenriquecampos LuizHenriquecampos

I don’t want to badmouth you because it was a great lesson about 5 slang idioms with the word “mouth”. You have spoken up and clear, sometimes quicker than normal for me. Summarizing, “to shoot off at the mouth”(very quickly or bad mood); “running off at the mouth”(speedly); “motormouth”(speak up and loud, so fast); “big mouth” (speaking a lot of word); and “Bad mouth”(disrecpectly, unpolitely and negatively); I have understood these topics. Thanks a lot teacher James from Engvid, good performance.
