This is a good website that is packed with useful videos. These videos are
excellent. But there is a problem. When we watch these videos, we can’t hear some words. The reason why it is so is because we are non-native speakers. We find it difficult to understand some sentences you use. Would you mind giving us the scripts of the videos. It will help us improve our listening ability.

Tuesday, December 22nd 2009

    You are wright! These videos are planned for non-native speakers but spoken to native ones. I would suggest to listen to them many times until you get used.

Nice “food” and listening too… thanks

Hi James thanks for this video.

Wednesday, December 23rd 2009

Hi there. that was awesome James. Your way to explain those idioms just make me understand much better when natives speakers talk with me in my job because I work in a kitchen and now I will use this expressions to have a good time with them. Well I will be watching more videos to improve my speaking. thanks GodBless. Edmonton Canada.

Hi, James:
To laught when I am studying its allmost imposible, but washing your engvid videos -that it’s so easy to understand, because the way that you explained it. it’s in a funny way, but in the mean time, ours brain is abstracting all the lecture given by the instructor(James). I can laugth, but I’m learning too.

Five expressions about food or English idioms like these: “to stow in one’s own juice”, “sandwhiched”, “to sugar coat something”, “sugar daddy” and “gravy train”. It’s difficult to remember all of them but we can note and review the meanings so they would be easier to identify. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid.

stew in my own juices “to suffer the consequences of bad something ” sugarcoat “to tell bad news in a good way ” sugar daddy ” an elder man who spends his time & money to make younger women happy ” on a gravytrain ” doing well ” sandwiched ” between two big people “”
