    Thursday, May 29th 2014

Thanks very much for this lesson, I like your method of teaching, rebcca.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Wonderful lesson, good ways of teaching I really like it.Thanks !

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Cool, thanks.
I think, dialogues are one of the best ways to learn and improve English. Can we count on new dialogues lessons?

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

greeting for all teachers,

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Thank you Rebecca, Ronnie, Alex, James and Alan, and thanks to the hidden cameraman :). This lesson is a very good one, very useful, and absolutly well done !!

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Thanks a lot! It was a lot of fun!

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

      Alex, you are a great teacher. Usually I find your lessons more difficult than the others. Not because you are not good in teaching! But because you choose critical topics and you really make them smoothly understood to us.
      Although I meant what I have said, however, I also want your feedback about my English in this comment. I would really appreciate it Alex.

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

      Yeah, thanks for the video. Alex, did you come from Montreal to Toronto? (On your page https://www.engvid.com/english-teacher/alex/) you say you’re working in Montreal.

      Thursday, May 30th 2013

      By the way, Is Jon still with Engvid or he left?

      Friday, May 31st 2013

It’s a very useful and well structured lesson. Thank you all!

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

This topic was very interesting and I was happy to see some of you together. I love you all.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

nice lessen , I hope to meet you same days

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    may you study with me?

    i would like to practice English with some one and this is my Skype name ” waeladam “

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

And also, i agree with Ronnie and Alan, I appreciate the fact that I can learn english for free (thanks to engvid and all the teachers), whenever et wherever I want. I am not offending my teacher if i’m late in class and I prefer to work at my rythm. In class, some students learn faster than others and vice versa and sometimes you get borred or you get lost ^^
I agree that in front of my screen I can’t interact with anyone but I just speak aloud when you guys ask a question (am I weird ? ^^) and I repeat almost evrythong after you. I also run videos when I’m doing something else, just to hear English constantly in the background, and I am sure it helps to remember things without much effort.
Thank you again !

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    may you study with me?

    i would like to practice English with some one and this is my Skype name ” waeladam “

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    I agree with you, and I also like to add that in Engvid we can choose from an range of topics what we are most interested in… :)

    Wednesday, May 29th 2013

    lol..u r not weird…I do the same thing when learning English..for me it works and it’s the best way to improve my English level. :) Greetings¡

    Thursday, January 9th 2014

Thanks guys for that nice video

i would like to practice English with some one and this is my Skype name ” waeladam “

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    I’m going to add you, ok? I also need someone to talk to. See you!

    Thursday, May 30th 2013

Sometimes I just don´t understando. For example: YOU MADE A GOOD POINT. Shoudn´t be YOU´VE MADE A GOOD POINT?

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    I heard only: “You made a very good point…”

    “to made a very good point” means that Adam agree with James. Or better, it means that James said something all right.

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

      ok, but, why SIMPLE PAST (You made) instead PRESENT PERFECT: YOU´VE MADE? Simple past is used to talk about something that happened in time in the past. ex: You made a good point at the meeting yesterday.

      Tuesday, May 28th 2013

        Well, I’m just a student, but I guess that this case we must use to Simple Past because Adam agreed with something James already said.

        Adam could have said: “James MADE a very good point WHEN he SAID that…” Same in portuguese.

        In conclusion, Adam took about something James DID.

        I hope I have helped you.
        All the best!

        Tuesday, May 28th 2013

May I say something? This lesson is very useful! Thanks you to all teachers =)

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Thanks all.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

I agree with Ronnie! Engvid has the best teachers! You guys are fantastic. Very professionals. I’m 36 years old and in all my life I never can learn english. I did so many courses and I´ve gone to many phisical schools and neither them can teach me english.
However, I don’t know if I can say I learned english by internet. I need, or better, I´ve got learn so much to I can do: “I know english!”… But, even so I finally started learning english, specially with the videos of engvid.com.
Thank you guys, teachers!

All my Teachers was a

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Ignore the last “All my teachers was a….it’s a leftover and my mistake!

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Hi, I’m an English Language student from Argentina. At college we get to discuss several subject with our classmates and teachers so we get to practice our pronunciation and learn how to speak more fluently. I was wondering if you could tell me if there are other expressions considered more polite or related to an academic enviroment.
Nice vid!

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Very lively lesson :-)
Could one of you make a lesson about the expression “out of ” and “out to “.

“out of africa”, “i made a lamp out of wood”, “out to get me” etc … though i can guess the meaning i don’t master those correctly.

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

It was very nice to see you guys together. I would like to say that my English is getting very better with Engvid. I can’t afford a regular English Course now, but I know I am learning a lot here. You are terrific teachers! I miss Emma and Jhonn in this video… I have downloaded it and I’ll keep it for the rest of my life, as a Engvid memory. :)

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Hi, EngVid.com May I ask, if you guys keep record of the studies that each student does? can they or me get a Certificate for the classes? thanks again for putting up this great videos on the web, so Students like me can have access to them. best regards

Wednesday, May 29th 2013


It is next fantastic lesson! I love it!!!!

You are the best in the WORLD WEB!


Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Hello Rebecca,its a great lesson.And i have a doubt that when i want to interrupt someone while he is in the discussion,”can i interrupt you” is it a right and polite way to ask?

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

hello Rebeca: this blog is fantastic and I have learned a lot, I would like to do a lesson on the imperative form in English, I mean by using let and may and all what has to do with the imperative form PLEASE…I am sure it will be 100 per cent usuful…

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Hi all!

Amazing lesson…
I would choose both, to study on-line and in a classroom. Each one has its pros and cons. When I attended English classes, no one advised us to use on-line resources. Why? Because after I’d found out it could be more effective, I quited the class, but I am still learning English.

From the other hand, if I were in Canada (someday I will come there), I would attend advanced English classes because 1) IELTS certification for job, 2) speaking skills to live and communicate with people. It would not be interesting for me to study English on-line because I can do it in Belarus. I’d rather make some friends and talk with them as much as possible.

Best regards

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thank you to all, this is a great page

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

I’ve got 100, this is awesome. thank you so much and i hope i can use these phrases whenever i need it.

Tnx all of you guys!!!

All of you are so incridible!!! I am from Brasil and I have been studing english on EngVid since 2010 I think. I remember when I was there in Toronto in business and I though in contact all of you but I didn’t do it for some reasons. These lessons always help me a lot. In my opinion this is the best website for learning english I tried in my whole single life.

Thursday, May 30th 2013

Ops!! Correcting: ” on business” I meant! Ha… Ha…

Thursday, May 30th 2013

Hi engvid thanks a lot for this lesson, it’s helpful, but i want to ask you, i can talk a little english without knowing the most of the rules, is that good? or it must know them? pleas answer me. and thank you

Thursday, May 30th 2013

Congratulations all Fellas. This unusual idea was quite delightful. May I make a suggestion ? can you do it more times, In my student view, This interaction helps as well. Thanks

Thursday, May 30th 2013

You – teachers from Canada make a very good job, I know everyone of you (from these podcasts, of course). In this one Ronnie and James were talking a little bit too fast for me, but (Ronnie! I love you! you’re the most fun of all of you,James – you’re a great teacher too, however I don’t understand you as perfect as a very clearly speaking Rebeca, Alex, Adam, Jon. Anyway I don’t know how to thank you. You all are great!!!!!!Marek
Ps. Forgive me my mistakes.

“in a nutshell”, the first time i’ve heard,& how could we use the shortcut of “summary” to be like “sum up”… Is that common to use like these words by natives?? or it’s just common in Canada?

Friday, August 16th 2013

Is almost impossible to understand James, heheheeh, he talks very fast.

Friday, August 16th 2013

We have the similar discuss in our English lessons, so some terms of this lesson will be useful. Especially I like “in a nutshell”, in our country we use (translated) “in cube” but I think this term doesn’t exist in English. Could I use “in a nutshell” also for formal communication,e.g. for e-mails at work ? I have used “Conclusion from the discuss from my opinion is…” so far.

Thursday, August 22nd 2013

Thanks for the lesson.

Wednesday, August 28th 2013

Thank you so much. This is very good lesson.

Yeah, that’s exactly how my conversations are goes while talking with friends, we’re literally always interrupt each other and often we use not a such polite form to have a word :D

haha and I was actually laughing while taking a quiz,
There was a question regarding your way to enter the discussion and you must have been choose between the
– May I say something? and another funny expression
– Do I get a chance to speak? xD
Oh sorry if I bore you! Thank you for represention of such a good instructional videos!

Thursday, September 12th 2013

Thank you Rebecca.
Thank you so much to the engvid team.
It was really nice.

Friday, November 22nd 2013

Thank you. Very good dynamic lesson.

Friday, November 22nd 2013

This video is very helpful to me. Because I’m major in English Language and Literature, I have an English communication class. In taking the class, I should discuss or debate with my groups about one topic. But it’s not easy as I thought, because I don’t know how to speak politely, express my opinions and interrupt one member. So this video is really useful, especially to me. Actually, discussing one topic in a group was my mid-term exam. If I knew this before, I think, I could take my exam better than that time. :( Anyway, thanks for your effort, Rebecca. I learned a lot from you. From now, I can discuss in a group by using what you taught.

Wednesday, November 27th 2013

How do you native speakers respond to “thanks for helping me …”? in this video, you guys said “no problem”.
I was taught that “You’re welcome” is the answer in that case, which I think is too formal and a little bit boring because of lacking variety. So can you give me more ways for that. Thank you.

Sunday, March 1st 2015

thank you great Rebecca!

Thursday, March 5th 2015

ı think all have been told at teacher meeting,thats true,however,not enough for internet student just learning by watching and by listening,but ıf we would be in classroom as regular,We would dıscuss and make practice,in conclusıon it would be more useful for students. thanks

Thursday, March 5th 2015

Dear Rebecca,
“don’t get me wrong” I like the sound of this expression.
It’s a very nice way to show a different opinion.
Best regards.

Friday, March 6th 2015

Hello, Rebecca my good teacher. It was a pleasure to meet you. I sing up to Engvid.com after I have studied with you in many lessons. You are my good teacher. You can explain hard lesson become to easy lesson. I prefer to study with you. My notebook has a lot of your lesson from Engvid.
>> I would like to say that “I want you add your lesson about TOEIC more than ESPECIALLY LISTENING PART because I want to improve my score. TOEIC is very very important for me. I believe, all teaches of Engvid can help me to get high score of TOEIC.
Thank you for teaching. I wish you happy in your life. Hug from Thailand. L

Thank you,every teacher!

Tuesday, July 26th 2016

how strongly and professional discussion !
Through this video i have leared so much, of course firstly is phrases used commonly in a discussion but beyond i kept in mind how to enter in dicussion politely and conversational skills as well.
I love this topic and just personally speaking, i actually think that study online on engvid.com is the best with me coz i kind of introverted person and feel shy when communicate with other people.
Thanks you guy.
All best to you.

Wednesday, August 24th 2016

I got 100 out of 100 marks ! this is really a good website. thanks all of you. :)

Things good , great informations can be access on a website or chat with someone, get knowledge, to know people and the world, make part of something!

I’m confess how much I would like study at a school and to learn a lot of things.
However one step at a time. This website have been of big importance to me. This team of teachers what have has helped me a lot. Is very nice see you together!

Thank you all of you !

    Well, I will also like to add that “hold the floor” as I have mentioned earlier to mean that “TO SUPPORT SOMETHING” with the help of examples in speaking part-3 of IELTS test.
