Hi James!! I’m your fan from Brazil!
Actually, I’m fan of EngVid, and your classes are full of didactically!!! Thanks for you and for all other teachers too!!!! These are words from me and from my friends.
Particularly, I disagreed the only answer of that question that asked the best way to keep warm: I think stay at home and have a good hot chocolate is a confortably way to enjoy the cold, ehehehe. But, of course, I understood the proposite of the question.
Thanks again!!!!

Hi James,can you please give a lesson on small talks?how one can start it,develop it,how to answer…

Tuesday, February 22nd 2011

Sir your all lessons are tremendous and very beneficial. Your way of educating is sophisticated. Sir I have a problem in differentiating between ‘passive voice’ and ‘third form of verb’. Plz explain how to use these two things or if you could make a video example then it would be most appropriate.

Hi James!
I looked and the other teachers on this site, but you’re the best, I mean you’re the nicest, the charisma, draw very easy to learn, I want to learn from you. After one to view all your lessons, I will go to other teachers on this site.
Your lessons are very very funny, but I have a question: when you use the word “scarf”, in the “Winter clothing”, would not have been more appropriate “muffler”???

Thank you very much.
That is very useful.

Sunday, September 9th 2012

Hello, I don’t mean to be a pain in the neck, but aside of the fun and informative quality of the video, James made two spelling mistakes.
He writes ‘mit’ and it has to be “mitt’; the other one is ‘touque’ instead of ‘toque’ (or tuque). If this video is meant for ESL students, it’s kind of embarrassing, don’t you think? Thank you and keep up the good work!

Tuesday, December 4th 2012

Hello James. Your Leson was rely nice.I have a question.Is there any ways to say mit

Tuesday, December 18th 2012


Wednesday, February 13th 2013

I liked the lessons, but in my opinion is necessary explain exactly what mean layering your clothes because sometimes for other countries is a little hard for catching what its mean. This is for the fact that layering is used in others terms I think.

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

hi james i realy like you

Friday, March 8th 2013


I want to do a question…

why you always use snakes ???

Tuesday, March 12th 2013

long johns….long bobs… haha.. bro :D

Wednesday, March 20th 2013

I don’t get long johns

Saturday, June 8th 2013

Hi James,

after your recommend I use oxford advanced learner’s dictionary and I have read there, that “mit” should be written mitt or mitten.
Sorry for my English James. I have many problems of using the proper tenses in English, particularly with following (successive) sentences. I know the main gramma but in reality it’s only chaos in my head.

Thursday, June 27th 2013

hi again.my name is Aqil.your created english Quiz is more attractive than others.That is why I visit to this site regularly.It seems to me your organized site is surrounded everything on english.From beginner to advance.Thank you very much.

Saturday, October 12th 2013

that’s pretty good video about cold weather and clothes but i hope you James to talk slowly sometimes you confuse me so i can’t catch up more and thanks.

Wednesday, January 8th 2014

Hi James,
thanks for your lesson.
It was funny as usual and got me new words in my vocabulary
take care

Monday, March 24th 2014

James!you can be a teacher or comedian. I enjoy listening to you. You are very funny.

Thursday, January 15th 2015

Ver y interesting . In the next winter I will wear layering Style.

Monday, April 20th 2015

Hi James.
Thanks for your free lessons.
i really enjoy it.
Sometimes you type words wrong.
For example in this video you have typed touque instead of toque / or mit instead of mitt !

Wednesday, July 22nd 2015

Thank you so much.

Thursday, January 21st 2016

Thanks you so much.

Tuesday, April 26th 2016

thank you

Sunday, September 4th 2016

“Long Jhonns” are underwear clothes, it was the right answer but I failed because I had a conceptual mistake with the words. Now it’s winter here in Spain and on the overall Northern Hemisphere is very cold, chill and freeze, we have to wear winter clothes to walk and stroll around the streets of our cities. We have to avoid the evil flu which is threatening us by this days. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, an interesting lesson.

tanks it was fun

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Excelent Class!!!!

Thursday, February 22nd 2018

James, I don’t understand one thing. In Canada Will I use “toque” or “touque” to say hat? Because you wrote touque in the board and in the exercise is toque.

Can you explain?

Thanks for the lessons and sorry for my English, I am learning yet

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    Oops! Looks like James made a mistake. “Toque” is the right spelling. (“Tuque” is less common but also correct.)

    Monday, May 28th 2018

Thanks James what a good lesson! 5/5. Always like your minds of teaching. At first I didn’t know about long Jons. Thanks again.

Saturday, January 26th 2019
