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.


    “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 ;)


Interesting lesson,but I haven’t seen properly what you wrote on the board…


thanks very useful slang , go on mister but plz if u can enlarge your writting font
my greetings


    One word.
    Fullscreen ;)




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


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


    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.


      I can’t download the vigdo 100%.i didn’t liston oppereily.
      i would like your cooking vigdo.

It’s very interesting and useful. I like this video class. Thank you so much. I’ll continue visiting here often.

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


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

Julie Lambert

    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.


I do love this video! keep it up bro!


thank you is very help for me


Hi Jon,
I like your english class. I would like to learn more about “WH-QUESTIONS”, I am very confuse about it. Thank you so much…and It is nice to hear you have been in Perú, I am from Perú…nice country uh?
Thanks again,


tanks teacher it was a good lesson


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..


    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.




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.


hi please i want your help after 2 months i have toefl exam n i didnt start studying yet cuz i dont know how to start


    I think there are other teachers that have a more experience with TOEFL than I do, so you might want to ask them. However, if you have any specifics about my lessons, etc I can help you.


thank u nice but u have enlarge your writing


Hi Jon I enjoy ur lesson.

kandiah rajendra

I enjoyed this lesson. A new teacher, with his own way of teaching, his accent, is a good way
to enhance our English.

and a lot of new lessons for us.


thanx i like your way

i am so happy to find this site “improve your English.Thank you from your strugle.best wishes for you and alot of lesson for us.


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.


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?


    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.


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…


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


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


    I will, thanks.


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


hi jon,,,
where’s the jhon around here???

Exciting, when you hit your head to the whitebourd while teaching the slong”fool of yourself”.

Abdul Samad Amin

Thankx Jon,

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


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


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


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


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


I like it
thanks a lot Jon


got new words


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 ..


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


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 !


    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.


      Yes, that is correct.

Thank you Jon.

I have benefited a lot from this lesson.

Thank you again.


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.”


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


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


thank you jon :)

can you tell me how to use “go in circles”
?and how often should we use slangs in our languages?


Great lesson Jon! I didn’t know buzzed was somehow the first step to be wasted! Neither did I know a bouncer is a security guard!!. Thank you


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!!


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


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!


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 ??


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


thank you sir


Dear Jone:
The pleasure is all mine. I live in the USA, and I am wandering about are American using these slang words? or just Canadian use them.

Amir Irhayyim

It’s great.


i really love watching you Jon
you are intelligent. i love the way that you explain with.


Thank you for all your lessons


how do we order a beer in a bar? How do we express the desired quantity in a glass? If we want a 250ml or a 500ml glass beer, what do we normally say? Thanks!


Hi, John!

hi Jon thank you so much. your video is useful . i am preparing myself for IELTS exam so i ussed your classroom in this video virtually.


Well done and keep up the good work.

Rowa Douglas

I hate people when manipulating languages !!
As far as English is concerned, some are seriously corrupting Shakespearean beautiful language :/
Gonna, wanna, gotta ? What is that ?
However, thanks for the lesson and happy new year.


Thanks for your lesson. Very helpful your way to introduce the vocabulary in a short and funny story.


Thank You. Correct my Quiz. I’m so glad about you teacher JON. Have excelent 2013 with Family. Peace and lov. Eliete Diaz from Brazil


Thank’s jon so much for this lesson


I did learn some new words from your lesson. Many thanks Jon.


thanks so much Jon and Happy New year…….


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

Sally S

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


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…


I must say that these vocabulary lessons are my favorite. There are always new words that I didn’t know about. Thanks a ton, Jon! :D


Thank you very much


thank you sir

Gibson Tambunan

Thanks , very goog


do not understand your lesson


thanks for the lesson it was good but I think it’s not useful for me until I travel to Canada or USA :)


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


Hi, where’s Jon?

He hasn’t posted his videos anymore….

Enilson B@tist@

Great lesson John! Thank you!

Isaias Menezes Silva

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.


Love it


Thanks Jon.
