sometimes u look like drunk, U drank a lot of beers in the past right, nice lesson.keep teaching not drinking please.

Sunday, August 7th 2011

    Actually I was totally sober. However, it was hot that day, so perhaps that is what made it appear as though I were intoxicated. Take care, Jon

    Friday, August 12th 2011

      Efrain, relax and have a beer!

      Thursday, August 18th 2011

      Yeah! and have one for me—

    Tuesday, January 10th 2012

interesting lesson! your accent is very clear to me.:)
thank you so much!

Monday, August 8th 2011

I’m mistake for the last quiz because I don’t live in Canada.(The price of an item in my country include taxes)

Monday, August 8th 2011

    Most people, including myself do not like it when the price does not include taxes. I wish that Canada did the same thing as in your country. Jon

    Friday, August 12th 2011

      If I had to add taxes to prices, I wouldn’t be able to calculate the correct prices!!

      Thursday, August 18th 2011

      How is it in CA Jon? Because in Europe they put not only the price of the object but also the taxes that you will pay. Then when you look at the price ticket you are able to see both.
      In Brazil it’s included already, and I don’t really like that because we can’t really see how many taxes we are paying.

      Best regards. Rodrigo.

nice thank you

Monday, August 8th 2011

hi jon,its Amir thanks for your good lessons and best skills at teaching.could you do me a favour?if you agree,could you make a lesson for special** phrasal verbs** which are used in car such as **fasten the seatbelt** besides I will be grateful to your help. Thank you very much.

Monday, August 8th 2011

    I will. Actually, ‘fasten your seatbelt’ is not a phrasal verb. Phrasal verbs are sometimes called 2 part verbs. For example: sit down, stand up, buckle up (which incidentally means the same thing as fasten your seatbelt).

    Friday, August 12th 2011

acting is what reacting , you loose there

2- how to ask about the deadline of that change?

Tuesday, August 16th 2011

why teacher john don’t answer mmmmmmmmm

Wednesday, August 17th 2011

Jon, nice video but I think that the title of your lesson is uncorrect… Sorry but to buy a pair of shoes in 30 secondes, is not what I call shopping!! To do shopping you need at least 2 hours and a shopping mall…

Thursday, August 18th 2011

    That’s funny.
