Hello Jon.
the video class is so great, but just one question, I don’t understand where and when I could use the expesion “jack o lanterns”, if your don’t mine, could you explain me that?
Thank you.


    Jack o’lanterns are pumpkins with a face cut out and a candle inside. It’s a noun and is really something that you would only see during halloween.

Hiiii Jon
I really love your way of teaching.Actually you make us understand everything citing examples from the world around us..Your lessons are not like what we read when we were in school and as the days are passing I am getting motivated,interested and also excited about learning this language and knowing your culture as because I eternally love English more than my native language.I firmly believe that if I could stay with you for just one month ,it would be enough for me to speak really good English.I also think that there is a lot differences between the Writing English and the English which is actually spoken in day to day life.When we went to school we were taught how to write essays,letters etc. and we thought that English goes in this way but as every language has two form of implementation,English too…I would like you to correct my errors or mistakes if you find anything while reading this short message..Wish you beautiful,prospering days ahead in your life…

    Hi sorry, but this message is not short.

    Sometimes school can be very limiting, so it is great to learn from many different places, I agree. I think that when writing and speaking each have their own challenges. They can certainly be very different.

Dear sir can you please give me some examples for those idioms? I mean about how to use them in a sentence.


    He bit the dust (died). I have to work the graveyard shift. Never say die, knock em dead and over my dead body is often said in response to something or in a certain context. The last 3 idioms would be more difficult to say in a “proper sentence. Perhaps you could watch the video again to try to understand the context.

    Profile photo of Jon Jon

      yes sir, really we are using the last idiom a lot in Syria special if we are joking with friends .

      Profile photo of Amer.Rayes Amer.Rayes

thank you >> very clear


Thank you, Jon.
Great and clear!
Can Christians for example say “Knock’em dead”? or this phrase is a kind of bad?


    Don’t worry, it’s not an impolite phrase!

Hi Jon! Thanks for the lesson, but I have a question. Who the hell was Jack? :) What is the origin of the phrase “Jack O-lantern”?

Profile photo of boneyard boneyard

Hi!my name is vicheka.I am 23 years old.I am so very happy that i found this website.Because i can learn more about english.this is my purpose that i want to do it.


It’s very interesting and easy to understand that what you say.
And…your english is very well….:)


When i get off my graveyard shift work. i see some children dresse up a scary costume, tack a Jack o lantern and knock someone’s house door to get candy to eat, a gary open the door and say “You are bite a dusty, i would not give you candy! Never think about that, If you want candy? Over my dead body!”

Is the sentence correct?
