Hi James
I hope you are well.
I like your english class, but I want to learn more, I have a problem when I want to speak, I don´t like mistakes when I speak English and my problem is that I don´t have friends that speak English with me. and the pronunciation is hard.
Thank you for your class.

There are definitely set ideas on how you should run a business. Not all those things are right. believe in yourself and don’t give up. you have to have a plan and stick to it.

Monday, August 17th 2009

If you want to be succesful, you ‘ve got to go for it.Don’t ever let anyone say it can’t be done.If it doesn’t work the first time , give it another try and another try, until you find a way to make it work.

Hi. James. I’m Kyungkook.

I’ve learned so many lectures at here, and I’m very appreciate it.

I have a thing request for you, It’s a speed.

I’m a elementary level of English learner, so I can’t understand what you said enough.

So, Could you speak more slowly and add more information doing lecture.

Thank you so much, and
Best regards.

Money is earned by rich people and poor people want to earn money, therefore money is a very important thing in our savings but it’s the root of all evil. Money against poverty but it’s not only money better than healthy. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid.
