wow

    I don’t know how could I leave a comment without reply anyone. Sorry about that.
    I have a question, what is the difference between “whole” and “every”? Becuase I thought that “whole” meant a complete grupo as “every”.
    Your videos are excellent, thank you in advance.

      Whole means: the WHOLE pie.
      But every mean: every pie individually in a group!

Can I know whether you are teaching British English or American English

vasim

    Actually, James is Canadian. This means most of the expressions and grammar will be from American English, but sometimes the spelling of words will be British.

hi,may i know where can i find the lesson which is teaching about “when can we join every with a noun and leave a space?” thanks in advance

rita

Hi, james it was really great, everytime i enjoys your lesson.Thanks
Could you please make a lesson or just explain me the difference by reply abouts the words-
tend to and intend to
these words confuse me always. Waiting for reply
thankyou very much

Amy

    Hi Amy. James is busy, but I can answer this question for you. These two expressions ‘tend to’, and ‘intend to’, sound very similar, but they have different meanings.

    tend to – This is used to talk about something you do often. ‘tend’ here comes from the word ‘tendency’ — like a habit. For example: “I tend to bite my nails.” or “Amy tends to comment on James’s lessons.” or “The teacher tends to wear black.”

    intend to – This is used to talk about something you plan to do. ‘intend’ comes from the word ‘intension’. For example: “I intend to fly to Paris in December.” or “I intend to buy a car for my wife.”

    Hope that helps you out.

I’ve heard that there is some way to personal learning english with some of the teachers from here, is that correct?

If so, then I’d like to ask James, does he teach a personal(may be by skype)?

How and with whom can I connect about this question?

Hi James. I’m from Italy. Great your English Lessons ! I appreciate them in general. But I am a little confused about the differences between ALL and EVERY. I am a Math, so “All men are mortal” and “Every man is mortal” … is equivalent as “statement”. Hence, I would think that the difference is only grammatical but not in the meanings. But It seems to me that your exposition has got something of Mathematic. So, at the end, I’m a little confused …. Is your exposition a mathematical or grammatical exposition ?
Anyway, thanks a lot ! I really like your shows and they help me a lot.

Hi James…
i have a question about your exemple (8:54):
All people enjoyed themselves.
Everyone enjoyed …

You didn’t write on board..so..my question is: Everyone enjoyed themselves?? like first example?
obs.: Everyone is here… or even a part of a song: Everyone is someone in L.A…

I’m so confused right now…help me..

Hadassa

    [You didn’t write on board..so..my question is: Everyone enjoyed themselves?? like first example?]
    He said “enjoyed themselves, bla, bla,…”, which means so on?!?
    I think so :)
    Uhm,
    Could you please explain what “obs” stands for?
    By the way, my name’s Uy, from Viet Nam, nice to see you there. :)

    shadow_number0

      My question is if “Everyone” is always used as “he/she” combining with “is”…and if “Everyone” combine with “itself” or “themselves”…
      That is it! Did u got it??

      See ya!

      Hadassa

Dear EngVid,
I find your videos useful and it’s helped me a lot. Tks! :)
I would like to ask you a few questions. :D

In one paragraph, I read that in some cases native speakers prefer being called by name to being added an extra word – like “Mr” or “Mrs” before their names.

My old teacher, from New Zealand, used to call himself Michael. We thought it would be more polite to add “Mr” before “Michael”. :( We did so, and he was called “Mr Michael” during his time with us (a 24-student class)

Therefore, I was rather disappointed when I read about this. Can explain more clearly to me? On which occasion can I call one “Mr.” or “Mrs” ???
Tks once again!
Best regards from Viet Nam
Uy

shadow_number0

    Sorry, our dear teachers
    Please you explain for me this doubt between using Mr or Mrs, or only your names.
    Thank you so mach

Hi there. I wonder if anyone could resolve this doubt: I’m trying to convert this sentence (this is where everything ends) with using “all”, and I figure it would be something like: this is where it all ends. However, I can’t find the grammar rule for the inclusion of “it” Does someone knows it?
