Hi.I wonder Mr. E have experienced ROCK & ROLL….. But I experienced before, it was so noisy and my ears was going to BURST!

Friday, October 19th 2012

What a pity Nobody explained this ‘bru -ha-ha İs any teacher hear about

Saturday, March 9th 2013

thank you man

Sunday, March 24th 2013

This is kind of old video but nobody has explained it yet.. I guess that ‘Bruhaha’ is just described in video and means something similar to squabble, it’s just about arguing noisily or noise by itself and you can use it like a normal word but I think that this is rather colloquial.. Please let me know if I’m wrong. ;) Pozdrowienia z Krakowa

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    You’re right about the meaning, but I don’t know if it’s colloquial — check out Google News results for “brouhaha”. It’s used all the time for any kind of uproar — whether it’s literally people shouting, or just a lot of outrage.

    Wednesday, June 19th 2013

Thanks James!

Tuesday, August 6th 2013

Thanks for the lesson but u speak so fast

Friday, October 18th 2013

James you are so funny ..love you

Wednesday, July 13th 2016

Ruckus and racket, commotion, squabble, and bru-ha-ha are the nouns of several sounds but the lasts one “bru-ha-ha” is similar to the laughs and snores, but I don’t know, it’s possible. Thanks a lot, teacher James from Engvig, a very good performance, and explanation.

Sunday, January 8th 2017

Thank you James,
