    find a foreigner, a native speaker in your place. You can not learn any language by yourself


      You right huyen, but unfortunately in my place there’s no native speaker, so i have problem when practice speaking in English.

“Do NOT study in an area ‘free’ of distractions.” I think you’ve got something a little backwards. I think you really want to say, “Do NOT study in a room full of distractions” or ” Do study in a room ‘free’ of distractions.”


    that is the evil warm who confused you. kindly watch again … regards

Hi James

I got 4/5 without watching video because I have been doing this for a long time I have books, Audio & video cds, Watching Hollywood movies with subtitles (especially for accent), Listening English songs, make my own vocabulary, and I have been follow your website for one year but still I do mistakes.

I learn English in a way of Listening-Speaking-reading-writing (one of my English teacher said) but still SPEAKING part is missing because I haven’t any company for practicing that part and I haven’t any schedule for practicing all these stuff which I have collected and it increases day by day.

I wrote all this without watching your video hope it will guide me in a more specific way. I have a question how I know my sentence correct or not especially in Passive (passive causality)

Thanks, take care


    u’re so funny :)) I can watch ur video without getting bored. I kept concerntrating most of the time.
    The lesson is very clear. I wrote down all of this and i’ll try to apply it on my studying ;P
    U’re doing great, keep working hard :)

i think You need to add subtitls =))

You have told -” When you listening always watch with subtitls”


    yup he or she,z totaly wri8 that u must add subtitle plz so that we undstand eaisly????


    Actually what he told you is that don’t watch the subtle when listening, because the topic is how NOT to learn English at home. I have to say that this also confused for a while…
    Anyway, many thanks for the video James!~


thank you i learn english more with you

“His mother never loved him as a child.” It’s realy funny lesson


Hello the snake’s teacher today you teach this lesson not bad. But I still see something not clear in my mind. You told if somebody who study in a area with distraction that is attract and they can not study. How about if somebody study and they feel sleep but they have good place in learning.


Nice, it really helps..

Hi James,

I agree with you on these useful ideas.

By determing a specific time every day, anyone can achieve any goals in life including English profecincy. Also, she/he will have a great time because the learner is focused and determined.

It is quite effective, and it shows absolute determination.

I will always do it and thank you very much.

Thank you, again James.
But I’m a movie freak so I have a lot of dvds.
I’ve developed my own way to learn through movies.
Now, don’t get scaried of me: I collect Grammar
books. I do and redo all the exercises.

And I read a lot. Right now I’m reading ” The
English Patient.” and as I find it rather boring, I think one must be pacient enough to
get to the end of it.

Almost midnight. People are shouting at the
Copacabana beach.

Wow!!!!!!!!! It’s really beautiful.

Again, Happy New Year,James.

Hello James! I know teachers who are doing their job with full responsibility for the students but only a few of them is so great as you are. You know we do not even know each other (of course) but you can get my attention easily and I can get the ideas what you teach easily as well. In “one” word I am really glad because I found this Engvid and your lessons on it, and after I went through all your lessons I will look the other teachers lessons too I am sure. Thanks again, John. Anyway, are you still teaching here or now we only have opportunity to watch your old lectures?

It has been an interesting lesson, but I thought that you must maintain the rules of your learning as much time as possible, to improve your abilities and skills, but it isn’t the right way to learn easily, and then you must choose your method and time to learn a new language like English for me. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, a very entertained lesson.
