Hi teacher James, there was mistake in Q no 1

Twice than twike

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi James, great lecture I am little bit confused about first sentence. Would you explain please.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

I think question number 1, correct answer is “twice a week’ but it’s twike a week. so i had a little confused, please check again

Thursday, December 8th 2016

    I also wondered what means twike?

    Thursday, December 8th 2016
    Thursday, December 8th 2016

    Yes, I think too. “twice a week” is correct, isn’t it?

    Thursday, December 8th 2016

    +1

    Thursday, December 8th 2016

    yes i think you are true.

    Friday, December 9th 2016

    Seems to me, it was made purposely to check our grammar. We see “twike”. Then the same we have at 6. “twi-weekly” (not sure by this one, however, I don’t know such term :) ). And again at 8th question “mothly”.
    Cheers!

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

It seems like there is a mistake in question 1. What “twike” is ?

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi, James! I like your lessons. I think you’ve tried our observation with that Q1 answer :)

Thursday, December 8th 2016

hi games, it’s a great lesson.
but I think the first question has a wrong answer. it should be twice not twik 🙄🙄🙄

Thursday, December 8th 2016

    I am agree with you 😐✌🏻️

    Friday, December 9th 2016

Great lesson James!!Thank you so much!!
And, as other students wrote above, question number one is wrong. The right answer is the third one. But don´t worry, you only make these mistakes rarely (indefinite)XD

Thursday, December 8th 2016

I love your teaching, James,nevertheless I got 9 correct out of 10.And I agree with the views of guys.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi James, good lesson. It’s always important to refresh these little things in order not to fall behind. Keep up this good work, I appreciate very much your effort!! Just one thing, in first question the answer should be “twice”, shouldn’t it? Thanks a lot!!

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Good day, teacher James!
You are very nice to listen to. I just want to express my gratitude to you.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi, James!
Thank you so much for such useful lessons you make, you’re a great teacher!
May I ask you a question? I’ve recently encountered the adverb “bi-monthly” and checked it in several dictionaries. There are two meanings of this adverb: twice a month and once for two months. How can I choose between these meanings, they are so similar and I think that context helps little here?
Thank you in advance.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

    Will hi answered to you, you think ? I don’t thin so … !?

    Thursday, December 8th 2016

    That’s a really good question. (“Biweekly” is similar – it can either mean “twice a week” or “every two weeks”.) You are right that even in context, it often isn’t clear which meaning is intended. We should all probably just stop using “bimonthly” and forget the word ever existed.

    Saturday, December 10th 2016

Thanks James for this lesson, it was great and easy to understand..

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Teacher, I have a question about the 1st exercise.
1. Mr. E goes to the gym __________ a week.
twince
twike
twice
two
I believe that the correct answer is “twice” but an automatic corrector show us “twike”.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

    I had the same result…

    Thursday, December 8th 2016

    In fact, I am confused too!! I think the right answer is twice because I never heard about twike I am sure it was something wrong in the programme.

    Friday, December 9th 2016

    Yes, the same for me. There is a mistake in the corrector.

    Friday, December 9th 2016

It was cool. Thank you James. Nice teaching.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

James, You are the best in performing information at the board! It’s make understanding easier. Thank you!

Thursday, December 8th 2016

How do I print lessons

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi James ! I ddon’t like most of your lessons becouse of speed – your speech too hi. Could you speak a little slowly, plese ???

Thursday, December 8th 2016

    Somehow I agree with you!

    Friday, December 9th 2016

      Thank you my friend very much ! And Good luck !!! If you want we could speak by Skype ! My login batkovich1976. Well Come my friend!!!

      Friday, December 9th 2016

    somewhat fast

    Friday, December 23rd 2016

thank you james,but could you please write very cleary on the board ,it’s hard to read.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi James! What does mean “twike” in the first question? Why are confused answers in questions with identify and definite? I have got 60, but I’m sure must be 100. Could you explain these tricks?

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Hi,
Thanks for this lesson. Please, get a look on the answer of the first question. I suppose it’s twice not twike. It’s C instead of K.
Thank you for your disponibility.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Your representation of frequency adverbs is like the circles of Hell in Dante’s inferno:)Great..
very useful, thanks

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Dear teacher,
Are your answers to the questions all right?I did not understand why answer to the question 1 is “twike”?I have nerev seen this word before.What does this word mean?

Thursday, December 8th 2016

By the way,thank you very much for your teaching.

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Great lesson, James! I also answered the first question “twice”,that I think is right but the results of the test said “twike” is the right answer!!!

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Great lesson. I got 09.And, there is a mistakes in ans. Of quest 01.Anyhow, Thanks a lot james ☺

Friday, December 9th 2016

    Dear James, please check the answer of first question. All of us believe that it’s wrong.

    Friday, December 9th 2016

1) twice a week ))) … definitely

Friday, December 9th 2016

Hi James, In the first sentence the right answer is twice a week.

Friday, December 9th 2016

Hi James, I was wondering if the first question the answer is twice a week because the test said the answer is twike. I never heard that. could you explain that to me? Thanks

Friday, December 9th 2016

Thank you alot 💚

Friday, December 9th 2016

Thank you James for your useful lesson! I was a little bit confused about 1st answer,but I believe as everyone there that it is a programme mistake. I’ve got 09!!

Friday, December 9th 2016

Is the word ” twike ” correct ? Or it’s just a joke ?

Friday, December 9th 2016

    that is what i thinking about

    Friday, December 23rd 2016

Hi, James.. Thank you again… I wondering the same thing who our friend above.. I’m curious if there is this word (twike). I have tried to seek, but I had no success.

Thank you.

Friday, December 9th 2016

The question 1 (one) is wrong. The correct answer is TWICE not TWIKE.

Friday, December 9th 2016

Hi James, Thank you again,, I deal with my friend about the first question ,I think The Correct answer is twice, can you explain that point for us.

thank you .

Friday, December 9th 2016

More than the same about “twice” or not “twice”, that’s the question because there isn’t “twike” in the dictionary like a concept only I have found this: http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/twike ;
in this case maybe “twinkle” which sounds similar to “twike” and means “shine” or “bright”. A great lesson about definite and indefinite adverbs of frequency. Thanks a lot teacher James from Engvid.

Friday, December 9th 2016

Thank you. But it is something wrong with the answer of the first question.

Friday, December 9th 2016

hi,James
I`m new here,but you need to correct the first answer in the quiz .
it`s “twice” not “twike”

Friday, December 9th 2016

Thank you to everyone who pointed out the error in question 1: the right answer is twice, not twike (which is a misspelling). It’s fixed now!

Saturday, December 10th 2016

    Hi! Thanks for the Q1. How about questions 3 and 4? It seems answers are confused. Once a week – it is identify. Isn’t it?

    Saturday, December 10th 2016

Hi James ! I undersand … – in this lesson (as in your many previous lessons) you sould give ditales if your speed of speach like this.

Saturday, December 10th 2016

Nice lesson James, I build on my English skill every single day, or in other words “daily”. In Brazil we say Adverbs of Frequency as “Advérbios de Tempo” (Adverbs of Time), something like that.

Saturday, December 10th 2016

Can someone please elaborate on the usage of ‘thrice’ for ‘three times’? Thanks in advance.

Saturday, December 10th 2016

    This comes from Old and Middle English, where “-s” or “-es” could make an adjective into an adverb. (The “-ce” is probably influenced by French spelling.) “Once” = “one + s”, “tw(o) + s”, “thr(ee) + s”. I don’t know why there isn’t a “fource”, “fice”, and so on.

    We see this with common words like “backward/backwards”, “beside/besides”, and “sometime/sometimes”. There are also the adverbs “whence”, “thence”, and “hence”, which are old-fashioned and not used often now, but mean “from where”, “from there”, and “from here”.

    Monday, December 12th 2016

      Thanks. it is really precious wealth of information

      Saturday, December 17th 2016

Hi James!

Thank you so much for this lesson. You have taught us a long list of adverbs, so that you enriched our vocabulary. We no longer need to use only the same words, like “always”, “sometimes” and “never”.

I visit Engvid frequently, and I usually like your videos. I reckon that if someone watched Engvid lessons three times a week, he/she would become fluent in English in only 6 months. Unfortunately I don’t have enough time to see it so often… Anyway, I can learn a lot from you!

Take care, sir!

Sunday, December 11th 2016

Many thanks

Sunday, December 11th 2016

looks like twike/twice was fixed, I gave the answer twice and it was correct

Monday, December 12th 2016

goog lesson

Wednesday, December 28th 2016

Hi James.
I just signed up here, but I followed the lessons from the very first one up to number 450. and I already thank you all, teachers.
but here’s my question.
In Persian, my native language, when something is 100% certain for future and it will happen for sure undoubtedly, you can even use past tense!. for example, if I’m being expected at a party and I’m on way and my friends call me and ask me where I am. I can reply: I arrived there; instead of “I’ll arrive there”.

I was wondering if there is a same concept in English?

by the way, it’s interesting when you think about it. if something WILL happen, it’s like something happened in the past.
I suppose this exists in Arabic language as well. maybe Arabic speakers here would approve.

Thank you again James. you are something else.

Friday, December 30th 2016
