Hi James!
Nice lesson. I’ve a question: I thought that the word “hair” was singular (my hair is brown) so why is there the plural with the expression “split hairs”?

I’ve never knew that “hair” can have all this idioms really interesting I I think got the meaning, but I also need more practice to know how to use it,so I wanna know if there is another quiz with more examples.

    1. Let your hair down and just have some fun. (enjoy yourself)

    2. We were a hair’s breadth away from getting caught. (= we were almost caught)

Hi James
I did not understand your lesson,because you taught very fast and without writing down on the witheboard.
your act is so good but your knowledge’s transfer to your students is not so good,you know better than us that all your students are not in the same level.

Profile photo of haman87 haman87

    I was just about to say that. People who watch his videos are not native speakers and there are people in different levels, so it was very difficult for me to understand

Hello James! This was the first lesson what I did not enjoy so much not even understood fully. It would have been good to see the idioms in written on the board with its definition maybe. You were pretty quick. And so on. So, I have to go through again what is not a problem at all. Although anyway I want to repeat all of your lessons, so my “complaint” is nothing at all. Never mind. Let see again:)

A very quickly explanation about six English Idioms that can appear on some occasions but for me it’s the first time I have listened to them. I think I am going to listen again because I don’t have clear ideas about this topics. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from Engvid, we continue learning.

Profile photo of angardiobel angardiobel
