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.

Monday, July 28th 2014

    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

    Wednesday, September 28th 2016

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:)

Friday, May 29th 2015

    please check the Title and description of the lesson.

    Tuesday, October 27th 2015

Wow! Wonderful lesson. Thank you. Quite challenging though. And I like that.

Tuesday, October 27th 2015

Unfortunately, there is an echo and a noise (as a motor) during the lesson(

Saturday, February 20th 2016

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.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Wow!!! This lesson was fast, but I tryed to understand it the mean idea. I got 100%. Idioms are alwyas a challenge.
