Monday, February 7th 2011

Do you offer private lessons? how much would it be per hour?

Monday, February 7th 2011

The correct answer wouldn’t be: W5+do or does+ s+v?
For instance: what do w5 mean?

Monday, February 7th 2011

A correction? What does w5 mean?

Monday, February 7th 2011

    well, I think that: what, who, where, when and why. I think so!

Hi people,I am having a very bad time on finding out how to solve my queries.I would like some help from you gyes to improving my English writing. I have a lots of problems with my writing-Sentence, punctuations because they doesn’t make sense, I realize that it where ever I write something like a paragraph either to describe or to talk about a topic, it always doesn’t make sense and i get lost.Furthermore, I got no idea why, how, and what am i doing wrong. Additionally, I am also having trouble with remembering various words that comes throughout my course. I will be grateful if someone help me with these problems. please do not hesitate to send me a message or to chat with me. Thank You.

Monday, February 28th 2011

    Hi buddy hope so that you’ll be fine. First of all tell me where are you from. I think the problem which you are facing is not a big problem. I would like to say that its your luck that you found that website here all the teachers are really very co-operative. Their way of teaching really out class. You couldn’t believe that when i searched that site at that time my english was really very bad, I didn’t have enough courage to talk and write but today i think i dont hesitate to talk anybody in english and i’m also improving my writing skill as well, So the think is that don’t hesitate and whatever you learn just impliment in your daily life through this definately you’ll also improve your writing skill. If you would like to talk to me or share any thing to me then most well come. Take care bye. One thing more is that you can also add me in skype

I am looking for some speaking exercises. I can read and write books/newspaper etc, to improve my learning, but can’t practice speaking. As speaking require a partner. I wonder if someone knows any suitable voice chat channel or any other member of EngVid is facing the same problem, then we can work together to overcome our problems. Please write to me at wahabmalik@gmail(dot)com

Wednesday, March 23rd 2011

Thanks James. This lesson was very helpful. And entertaining (as usual) :-)

Wednesday, March 23rd 2011

James, I am a first-year ESL teacher. How do I explain when to use “do” in a question? For instance, if I give them a sentence, such as “Jane is opening a gift,” they will give me the question back as, “What does Jane open?” instead of “What is Jane opening?”

Tuesday, March 29th 2011

    Verb “do” in a question you should use in a Present tense. For example: I eat sushi. Q: Do you eat sushi? If sentence is in Present Continuous (like in your example), than question must be in Present Continuous as well. The same with other verb tenses.

    Friday, April 1st 2011

      Verb “do” in a question you should be used in a Present tense.

Hi James I wanna ask you something :
Make a question
This tree is 200 years old (what)
can (what is 200 years old ) work ?

Tuesday, January 24th 2012

How can I will progress my ability of asking question?

Tuesday, February 7th 2012

hello how to change this sentence into question
“walk along the station road”

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

How can we change This sentence into Question

“Walk Along The station Road”

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

    the first question will be – WHO walk along the station road?!
    There is no subject in your sentence, so you can’t make a question.
    If your sentence were like this:”We walk along the station road” the questions would be “Where do we walk?” , “We walk along the station road, don’t we?”, “Why do we walk along the station road?” etc.

Friday, August 19th 2016

I had a doubt with the context questions but I realize that it is a complete question or specific question, then it would be when you use by itself with its whole meaning and not when you use it like a general question that maybe with a general idea written with the letter “X”, it was my mistake but now I will have to review the lesson again. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, a quick lesson but interesting.
