Jon::: at 0:50 you said “this around is on me”. Is “on me” means I will pay for it or I will bring it from the bar? I hope you understand my meaning. Thank you & happy new year to you in Canada.

Friday, December 31st 2010

    “This round is on me” means that I WILL PAY FOR IT. For example, if you and I go to a bar and you want a beer then I’ll buy 2 beers: One for you and one for me – that is the round.

Hey Jon,

Again a cool vid – hope you’ll make some more?

I have a request, and I would like to know if you (or other teachers on the engVid-crew) could make a video about adverbs/adjectives. When to use adverbs and when to use adjectives and why?? I think many students are having difficulties with this subject, so I would really appreciate such videos. Thx ;)

I have a few examples if you don’t quite know what I’m talking about:

John eats his food extreme(ly) quick(ly).

PS: Could you make some more grammarly related vids?? Would be cool ;)

Friday, December 31st 2010

      Everything is quite visible!! And I like that at first goes the story and then the explanation.

      Friday, July 13th 2012

Please write larger letters. My eyes hurt from trying to read what’s on the board!

Friday, December 31st 2010

    To incress the size of everything shown in the web-browser (including the video) try CTRL + + (that means, press Control plus the plus key). To reduce the size, CTROL + – (Control plus less-key).
    Hope that helps.

    Tuesday, January 4th 2011

    You cannot download the videos. You have to watch them on the site.

    Tuesday, January 4th 2011

I want to learn how to use ed in writing english sentences. When I need to put ed ending verb.

Tuesday, January 4th 2011

    There are many verbs that have -ed endings. These are sometimes referred to as “regular” past tense verbs. We often use these verbs to talk about a completed action in the past. Unfortunately you just have to know which verbs are “regular” past tense – memorize – or with time you will learn which ones are “regular past tense. For example, I taught a lesson about “New Year”. I am not doing it now, I did it in the past and it is finished.

    Tuesday, January 4th 2011

I do love this video! keep it up bro!

Tuesday, January 4th 2011

thank you is very help for me

Tuesday, January 4th 2011

Hi Jon,

Thanks again,

Wednesday, January 5th 2011

tanks teacher it was a good lesson

Friday, January 7th 2011

hello jon,i am from india,ur class is reall good,i have a doubt and little bit confusion in using “want” and “need”. can u pls clear it jon.bye..

Friday, January 7th 2011

    To want something is to desire it, but to need something it can imply a greater necessity. For example, I want some ice cream, but i need to eat. However, sometimes people use need when they really mean want, but they use it to express a stronger desire.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011


Friday, January 7th 2011

Thanks Jon. You’re amazing. I liked the way you describe the whole thing step by step. I came to know few new words. Thanks.

Saturday, January 8th 2011

Saturday, January 8th 2011

Sunday, January 9th 2011

I enjoyed this lesson. A new teacher, with his own way of teaching, his accent, is a good way
to enhance our English.
Best wishes to you for the New Year
and a lot of new lessons for us.

Wednesday, January 19th 2011

basically, this program is very good n worthy for non-native English people, like me. So, through this box comment, I’d like to thank so much n I do hope in the future time could make more various parts or kinds of the English lesson, especially how to understand American dialect/accent n building vocabulary.
thank a lot.

Thursday, January 20th 2011

Thanks for the lesson! You’re really cool!
One little maybe stupid question) What does “on ice” mean?
oh, oh and one more question about party! what does the verb “to party” mean?

Thursday, January 27th 2011

    On ice simply means that the drink will be served in a class with ice (frozen water). To party is a verb that describes…celebrating. It usually involves social interaction, sometimes drinks, dancing and games, etc.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011

i found the way to softening when you are drank!!In example: when someone say to you: you are dranked..you can say, sorry, just plastered baby!! , i take note of everything…

Wednesday, February 9th 2011

    Say…he is drunk, not drank. Drunk is the adjective. But you are absolutely correct about suing the word plastered.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011

Love your series mate. Can you teach more colloquial expression? I’ve been spending 2 years on working on it.

Friday, February 11th 2011

    I will, thanks.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011

that was great i would like more class with interesting topics like these…

Wednesday, February 23rd 2011

Thanks Jon, for good method of teaching.
Exciting, when you hit your head to the whitebourd while teaching the slang”fool of yourself”.

Wednesday, February 23rd 2011

Thankx Jon,

Could you please give me some more examples which are used with “this round” and “buzzed” Please post it in reply

Friday, February 25th 2011

I liked this way to learn slang and vocabulary related to everyday situations, usually we learn very formal English but is difficult to find about the typical way the language is spoken nowadays, thanks so much Jon

Thursday, March 3rd 2011

hi dear teacher
does ”this round on me” have the same meaning as ”my treat” has ?

Friday, March 4th 2011

    Essentially yes. However, this round is on me refers to drinks, usually.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011

hi dear teacher
does ”this round on me” have the same meaning as ”my treat”?

Friday, March 4th 2011

Thursday, March 10th 2011

Saturday, March 12th 2011

hi! i need to learn english both in written and spoken so would you help me out please !
i’ll be waiting for your reply ..

Sunday, March 20th 2011

Thanx for great lesson, Jon. I have one small question for you. Are “elsewhere” and “somewhere else” have the same meaning? Or not?

Thursday, March 24th 2011

i have a question.
Why is that every single question on the quizzes have a grammar mistake. It just confuses me, !
i.e. Can you do me a favour ? really ?
isn’t favor? can you guys answer that. I’m learning english and that is jusy confusing me !

Wednesday, March 30th 2011

    As far as I know, “favor” is American spelling, and “favour” is British. But meaning of both words the same.:-)
    I hope it helped. Best regards.

    Friday, April 1st 2011

      Yes, that is correct.

      Friday, September 2nd 2011

Tuesday, May 17th 2011

Hi everybody! As I couldn’t understand the expression “3 sheets to the wind” I looked up the origin on internet. ( “sheet” in this specific case is not a “a piece of paper” but a rope for a boat!) As the explanation I found is according to me very nice, I’d like to share it with you: “sheets actually refer to the ropes that are used to secure a ship’s sail. If the 3 ropes used were loose in the wind, the sail would flop around, causing the ship to wobble around, much like a drunk.”

Friday, May 20th 2011

    Great explanation! Thanks for looking this up and sharing, Milly!

    Saturday, May 21st 2011

Yo! My birthday is December 31,that’s why I love this lesson!

Saturday, December 3rd 2011

I love learning slang, I am an English teacher in Argentina, we learn and teach formal English, so a bit of this is really funny! Thanks!!

Sunday, December 4th 2011

I liked very much of this lesson. I have a question about slangs: Could you say me what means “you turn me on” please? Thx

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

Jon, thanks a lot! Your lessons are really handy, specially this one lol
Question: what is the connotation of words buzzed, wasted, plastered, inebriated and i believe there is another one, tipsy (right?). Which are more polite and official, which are useful for friends only? Thanks in advance!

Wednesday, December 28th 2011

I think inebriated and intoxicated are more polite then wasted or buzzed !!!
Q: is there is something even more polite then that ??
Q2: how you going to say politely when you are stoned ??

Wednesday, January 4th 2012

    you said already the polite way of saying it. now if you stoned the best thing you to do is to watered them! LOL

    Friday, January 6th 2012

Gonna, wanna, gotta ? What is that ?
However, thanks for the lesson and happy new year.

Tuesday, January 1st 2013

Wednesday, January 2nd 2013

That was a great idea of introducing the vocabulary with a story.Thanks for your lesson. Very useful!

Friday, January 4th 2013

thank You Jon, your ” story”is very practical and useful, especially when I have problems traying to understand people in such situations even though I am able to read books. Nobody lerns us students common language to say nothing of slang

Monday, January 7th 2013

hi everyone i am new user of this site… even though i think you are the teachers who i was looking for and i can say thanks to god i could find you…

Wednesday, February 20th 2013

Tuesday, March 4th 2014

Monday, August 4th 2014

so, would you Jon head to the bar with me, get some drink (its on me, don’t worry), get buzzed, maybe punch a bouncer and get really wasted? hahahah

Thursday, February 26th 2015

Hi, where’s Jon?

He hasn’t posted his videos anymore….

Friday, July 24th 2015

Great lesson John! Thank you!

Friday, September 4th 2015

The word for the entrance fee to a bar or club is “cover”, I failed it then I will have to listen again and take a little more attention and practice. It was a little weird your explanation at the beginning but when you have finished it, I have got to learn the topics, a great number of them. Thanks a lot, teacher Jon, interesting explanation and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year all of you.

Friday, December 30th 2016

Love it

Monday, January 2nd 2017
