what is the difference between Among and Between

Tuesday, January 25th 2011

    Between: in the middle of two people
    Among: in the middle of three or more people

    Friday, June 24th 2011

    Between is used when you make comparison between two objects, or when you localize something in between two objects.Example: You are taller than your brother.
    Among is useful when you compare something with more than two objects (is useful for superlative. Example: you are the best student among all other students in your class.

mam in “San Jose” why jose is pronounced like “hoze”.

Sunday, April 3rd 2011

    It is said that way because the word is Spanish. In Spanish, the “J” is said like an “H” sound!

    Tuesday, April 5th 2011

one more thing why sometimes Z is pronounced like “Gee”or “jee”
Ex– CBZ bkie in india
called ‘C’ ‘B'”GEE”or “jee”

Sunday, April 3rd 2011

it ‘s very usefull.

Friday, April 8th 2011

You are the best teacher…..
I hope i will improve my English with you.
Thank you so much!!!!

Saturday, April 9th 2011

If you let me suggest something, as a Spanish native speaker, the best way to differentiate the J and the Y are these:
J pronounced like a “Y” or “LL” in the Spanish pronunciation.
Y like an “i” in the Spanish pronunciation. Examples:

Joke will sounds like “Yoke or Lloke”.

Yes or Yellow like “ies or iellow”. Pronouncing the “ie” vocals very fast so you don´t notice the two words separated.

Thank you and your peers for all the energy and time doing these English classes.

Tuesday, April 26th 2011

    Cool! Thanks for your suggestions!

    Tuesday, April 26th 2011

    Also the J sometimes sounds like Spanish.Could you make a video with the sounds of these words: Job, enjoy, Japan please

    Wednesday, September 28th 2011

First of all you are awesome trainer…Could you please tell us how to pronounce – Pleasure, treasure, measure, major and vision.

Saturday, October 15th 2011

    “Pleasure”, “treasure” and “measure” all sound the same: “-easure” is pronounced “e-zher”. (“e” as in “bed”, “zh” is halfway between “sh” and “j”.) Listen to an audio file.

    “Major”: may-jer
    “Vision”: vi-zhun (“i” as in “bit”)

    Saturday, October 15th 2011

Could you please teach me HOW can I pronounce the letter “J” as in Job, enjoy, Japan..It is almost impossible for me to say it right. My teacher tried to teach me, but I did not get it. Thanks…..I really need your help, please!

Thursday, December 26th 2013

Hi to all of my Engvid instructors especially lady Ronnie
I want to transfer the thanks of Iranian people and tell you how a great work do you do for all people around world
Let me tell you something which is great thanks actually for your work
One of our old senior character said : if somebody learn me even just one word he makes me slave of his own
I just wanna ask you make some lessons if you can that show us the correct way to write English letters in writing specially that contain written lowercase alphabets and how we can write them correctly
I saw this video and realized how to write J and Y in written lowercase also
So please make this lesson that I know many of students don’t have good handwriting
I also search to other instructor lessons but I don’t find like that lesson
Again thank you very much

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Comments at the beginning didn’t mention any sound issue. I suppose I have also came too late. Nethertheless there is enough sound to get it. Just a little frustrating not hear our dear Ronnie until the end.

About handwriting “J” in capital, I’ve noticed that we have all be learnt in the same way.
Hope it will work fine? So here is my school “J” :
