    Hi Brian, wish that all okay with you, yes brother they’re helped us a lot, english already fun to leran before the funny lessons that the teachear made.
    for exemple, if you you want learn Frensh or another language after English you’ll find that very difficult that learnning english.

    Monday, January 27th 2020

Thanks James to teach us how “learn to learn”.
I agree with you . The Kai (change) Zen (good) is the best method to improve our language learning.
We also need a good motivation and a very open mind.

Sunday, December 8th 2013

    Hellooo, hahahah lol (how learn to learn) I like this sentence really

    Monday, January 27th 2020

      In fact the sentence is correct I think, for us the arabic people we can say that. but in english we can also say : How learn to acheive a goal of improving english, or how to organise the steps of learnning english.

      Monday, January 27th 2020

Hi James! It is the first lesson I have watched on EngVid and it is great. I think I will do it regulary. Nice work :)

Sunday, December 8th 2013

James u r 1 of my fav teachers (sry im too lazy too rite out the full words) Anyways i love your lessons and ur VERY delerious!! im an advanced English speaker, im very good at english except im only bad at summarizing and main ideas, can u plz do a lesson on those 2 for me plz i just watch ur vids 4 fun tho, so keep it up and plz add a summary lesson and a main idea lesson :D

Sunday, December 8th 2013

Very good secrets!

Sunday, December 8th 2013

Hi Motormouth;-)
James can you do me a favour? I struggle with phrasal verbs like come back, go back, get back, head back etc. I do not understand the difference. Thank you in advance ;)

Monday, December 9th 2013

It’s me again.
Is it correct to say: I want to come back to Poland one day.

Monday, December 9th 2013

    Come back [to here – from where I am speaking]

    Go back [to there, where the other people are waiting]

    So, suppose you are on vacation in London. You are still there, but you’re already making plans to return one day, so you say: “I’d like to come back here one day”. But, if your vacation finished and you are already home, you say: “I’d like to go back there one day”

    Another example:

    Your sister lives in another city. After some time in your home, you say to her: “You should go back home.”

    Your sister lives with you, but went to study in another city. You miss her, so you call her and say: “You should come back home”

    head back: to return to a place from which you recently came

    I walked to the end of the street and then headed back home.
    This is far enough. Let’s head back.

    (There’s a video here, where Adam explains 8 “head” phrasal verbs – including “head back”, so, take a look if you want)

    get back to
    1.(transitive) Return to (an activity)
    I’ll get back to work as soon as I’ve finished this game.

    2.(transitive) To return contact with (someone)
    I’ll get back to you when I have an answer return to a place after you have been somewhere else:

    If you get back in time, you can come with us.
    When we got back to the hotel, Ann had already left

    Well, I’m not an expert, but I hope I have helped you.

    Tuesday, December 10th 2013

      Denise, Thank you very much

      best wishes

      Friday, January 3rd 2014

Hi James
You are someone who doesn’t like to stop producing new projects, and videos.Yes your video is helpful because it is usefull to develop listening and speaking skills but when I am watchig your videos I have some problems with phrasel verbs to understand,so that’s why my question is could you use your videos with subtitles and pdf.For example Mr Duncans videos are shown by subtitles .So let me give you advice to add pdf file and additional materials for videos
Thank you very much
