Thnak you!

Saturday, February 8th 2014

Thank you James.

Saturday, February 8th 2014

Thanks James! I’ve been mimicking some of your teaching technique.

Saturday, February 8th 2014

I think engVid is an enjoyable website. I’m a Philoengvid. My writing is correct? I don’t have confidence ^^; Thank you James and Mr. E :)

Saturday, February 8th 2014

Thx for your help.

Sunday, February 9th 2014

Thanks James for the lesson.
I like to create new funny words in Russian using wrong suffixes or word endings (in Russian these are different word parts) and sometimes feel like doing it in English. I think it’s not a good habit as someone may think I’m bad at English grammar:-)

Sunday, February 9th 2014

    Kak de la , that is how are you in Russian I’m I right?!

    Sunday, February 9th 2014

      Hi alhappy. Yes, you’re right. I’ve just replied to your comment on ‘collective nouns’:-)

      Sunday, February 9th 2014

        Thank you Katya ok should I reply to this sentens ( ka ra shoo)or there is another reply,
        I’m sorry to bother you but I’m interesting in learning some russian.

        Monday, February 10th 2014

          Hi again. It’s not bothering at all. Ka ra sho is pretty the same as ok, you’re right. As in any other language there are various replies. ‘Nor mal no’ or ‘ne plo ho’ for not bad, or ‘tak se be’ for not really cool. And you may also start answering the question telling someone what’s happening in your life.
          Here’s my email (gegoncon@gmail.com) for you to ask more questions if you want:-)

          Monday, February 10th 2014

Sunday, February 9th 2014

You talk very fast for me so I don’t understand everything you said but it’s a good practice for me, but your speaking is a higher level so I have to do a great effort to understand. However I got 78 in the quiz test.

Sunday, February 9th 2014

That was a very good lesson, thanks.

Sunday, February 9th 2014

Great lesson!! But I still don’t understand the difference between reverence and deference can someone explain it for me pleasepleaseplease???

Sunday, February 9th 2014

    As I’ve understood, “reverence” means a feeling of great respect, of veneration for someone or something(like the national flag or religion).
    “Deference” means to accept, to give way to someone’s opinions or wishes because of the great respect you have for him.

    Wednesday, February 12th 2014

      Actually the verb “to defer” means what I just said.”Deference” (a noun) is the act of acceptance, of submission to someone’s ideas.

I would like to writte this on facebook page but due to the argument about Jade I can’t.
I really like James. Usually he teachs the more difficults issues ans his methode is amazing. But this class is so long. Even for James. There are two moments that seems that James is losing himself. I prefer short lessons and I like James at all.
