taught.
– Handy
– Hand in It
– Hand on
– Hands Off
– Handful

thanks.

    I understand that you asked your question about 10 years ago and you’re not visiting this site nowadays, but I decided to write some examples for my own practice.
    1.I can’t fry eggs because I don’t have a pan handy.
    2. My family had a wonderful dinner yesterday and I also had a hand in it.
    3. I used to want hands on playing the piano, but I’m not interested in it anymore.
    4. Hands off! It’s dangerous!
    5. I didn’t know that riding a horse is a handful.

Hi Teacher!

I have just listened you English Video on the internet via Youtube.com page.
As you recommended on the Video of ”imprvove reading skill” we should take three times to read a reading task, the first is skim, the second is deep reading and the third is completely deep reading step.
If i do that in the Toefl IBT test, i think it will take our time to do that and we will not have enough time to do other task. I dont know how can i complete other task, i am thinking now.
Help me make it clear. i want to learn english to be a good english learner as well as.

Many thanks

Hi Janes
I want to ask you if you could put a evaluation quiz about your video.
Thanks a lots for your useful lesson.

Ps. I don’t know if the verb “ask” was used correctly, because I have a great confusion when I can use verbs: “to ask, to request, to petition,  to apply and  to require”

I’m glad to see your lesson. I hope that I use them frequently. But I feel difficult about making sentence. Are these correct?
“I don’t have any phone handy.”
“I should have hand in event.”
“And I want hands on experience.”
“So plea~se hands off from me.”
“I am a handful enough because of my little brother.”

Bonnie

thank you james

Hi James,
why do you never have a quiz at your lessons? (almost never!!!)I think quiz are very useful ways to memory lessons. Thank you for your answer.

milly

    He’s too lazy!

    engVid

      And also do not reply to the comments. Only Rebecca answers to the comments and she is my favorite teacher.

      elvon786

    I THINK I QUIZ COULD BE VERY USEFUL.

    lostdel

Is handful a noun or an adjective? It looks like an adjective but you use it like a noun. So…

Andy

elvon786

awesome james thanks..

fargokate

Thank you all for these helpful and refreshing lessons. I use them for my language pupils. But standing in front of the text of the whiteboard is not nice.(You are not transparent at all!!) Sometimes the grammar is incomplete. But altogether you all make a good job.
Thanks and greetings from Germany!

Dr. Bernd Walter

kith1996

Thank you James, your lesson is really handy ^^ But I’m wondering what “join hands” mean… Please show me the meaning if it’s a hand idiom, too.

Seannie

Dear teacher,
What is the opposite of ‘handy’?

tuknan2004

Hi, your class is very good and I like it. But I was just wondering what’s the big E stand for and I didn’t get the meaning of hand in. Thanks.

Cathy

Hi, Marcos. This is some examples about HAND.
1. I like to keep my tools HANDY.
2. The teacher told the children to HAND IN their exericise-book.
3. When you have finished reading these notes, HAND them ON to me.
4. HANDS OFF!=Just don’t touch.
5. A HANDFUL of sweets.
