    hi i’d like to know if i can learning english by just listening english?

    Tuesday, April 24th 2012

      Yes, you can also learn English this way. But you have to improve your listing power.

      Thursday, August 2nd 2012

      Maybe, it depends on the person or the capability, as a language learner I recomend you to watch videos (as engvid of course) or movies depending on your level of english and on the other hand learn some grammar (it’s healthy…) I did that and in 6 years I got to speak English fluently and I have a conversation with anybody (and understand English people).

Hi James! Thanks for an interesting lesson. I’ve got a question concerning this lesson. Namely, Gotye in his song “Somebody that I used to know” sings “…now and then I think of times you screwed me over”, so what does this mean, to screw sb over?

Sunday, April 1st 2012

    It means to mess something up for someone — like breaking your promise to them.

    Monday, April 2nd 2012

It has been the first time a teacher explains to me what “slang” means, very interesting Short Language, now I think I don’t screw up more when I use this word because before this explanation I have screwed if I would have found the word “screw” with another different meaning of a mechanical tool. I am going to screw off this comment with pleasure to be learnt how we don’t screw loose with a word like this. Thanks a lot, teacher James, as always a very interesting lesson.
