How great you are that you came up with the tactics of explanation!

Thursday, August 14th 2014

    I completely agree with you Sokly, James’ teaching style is unique; he makes learning interesting and fun. What else can we ask of him?


    Saturday, September 6th 2014

      Isn’t true, he isn’t unique

      Saturday, August 27th 2016

    He is not the good teacher. He speaks too fast!
    He made such confused sentence ,explain something, not even he wrote on the table examples. I really don’t like this teacher.

    Saturday, August 27th 2016

      I absolutely disagree with you, I think his style is very original and effective.

      Tuesday, September 19th 2017

I got 6 correct out of 8. Maybe I haven’t heard “team up with.” Thank you for your useful lesson, James and Mr. E :)

Thursday, August 14th 2014

Friday, August 15th 2014

    He doesn’t have any accent, he’s a native speaker! :)

    Tuesday, August 19th 2014

James, me again! We’re in 2015 already. The people at the beach are, and will be, dancing and
singing together with the singers on the many stages there were on the beach.
Copacabana is really beautiful!!!!!!!!

Now, my question. I’ve heard “somewhere in time”
(ha! ha!) that for every verb there is a phrasal verb, like “extinguish the cigarette”
“put out the cigarette”.

Is it really true!

Wednesday, December 31st 2014

thanks James…

Tuesday, January 6th 2015

10 out of 10! Thanks James.

I’d like to ask you a question that has been bugging me for a long time.

Is it true that for every verb there’s a phrasal verb? Like:
( on a plane)
Please, extinguish your cigarettes.
( Please, put out your cigarette.”

I thank you in advance.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Thanks for the lesson. Glad to have teamed up with EngVid!

Tuesday, May 12th 2015

That’s my first lesson in engvid.com. It was great.

Let’s continue learning.

Thanks James

Monday, May 25th 2015

if you are a student. let me give you an advice.
studying is boring isn’t it?
but you should put up with the time you study.
if you shouldn’t, a consequence may catch up with you in the future.
then could you find something come up with any idea to make study fun? no you couldn’t.
there’s nothing that can team up with you for beating boring. just put up with the boring
you’d better just team up with the boring.

Tuesday, May 26th 2015

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

This kind of information is very useful in order to improve the English skills every time the native speakers use a lot of phrasal verbs.

Wednesday, September 20th 2017

8 out of 8
Learning phrasal verbs is a piece of cake with your explanation, thanks James! :)

Friday, January 19th 2018

Excellent lesson by an excellent teacher.
I got 10/10. Thanks teacher.
I’ve learnt that “tolerate” is kind of a synonym for
“put up with.”
“She’s so rude. I don’t know how you put up with her.”
And “catch up with” gives me the idea that you
can talk to someone so that you can find out the
latest news/ gossips.
I’d like to know your opinion, teacher.Hope you read
this comment. Thanks again.

Sunday, March 18th 2018

You got 7 correct out of 8.

I was on vacation last month. I should ______________ what happened while I was gone before I speak with my boss.
