      You`ve changed your avatar! Is that the picture of the ancient Persian capital – Pasargadi (may be I misspelled the name)?
      See you!

      nataanna

        Hello. It’s tomb of Kourosh the great, also known as Cyrus the great

        nkh

        Pasargadea was the capital of Cyrus the great. But some how you’re right. That’s great you know these about my country!!!

        nkh

          Sorry, Pasargadae

          nkh

        What’s your profession.
        Your knowledge good in historical places.

        SID

          I’m a student and I’m interested in learning about history of my country. I’m an Iranian, and I HAVE TO know my history.

          nkh

        hi nataanna, by the way as you are Russian and if you don’t mind i would ask would ask you a question: when James said in this video(you don’t want to sound like a Russian) what did he mean ? i don’t understand him.

        SKIKDA

          Hi SKIKDA, James imitated the Russian accent, and did it well.But it sounded weird, I agree with you. I understood him with some difficulty. It`s the great example for students how important the pronunciation is! I always pay much attention to my pronunciation.
          And if you want me to record his phrases, here they are:
          “You don`t want to sound like a Russian, it`s OK. Russian is very good. (Why it was in singular, I didn`t understand) I like them, they are good people. But if you are trying to learn American accent, it`s not the right way to start…”
          In other words he told us to study with native tutors as much as we can afford.
          Did it help?

          nataanna

          thaks for your reply,and maybe in the sentence ( Russian is very good) he mean the Russian language.

          SKIKDA

I have like 3 years stutying english and My biggest problem is the listening,what do you you suggest me to improve to understand the native speakers ????

fleudy

    Hi,fleudy. I think listening to songs and watching
    movies can help all of us to improve our listening
    skill. i do it very frequently and it has helped me
    a lot,so far.
    Reading enriches our vocabulary and listening to
    songs and watching movies are tools we can use to
    feel the different accents of native speakers.
    By the way, there is a song that I like very much.
    It’s sung by Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson.
    ” To all the girls I loved before.” You can understand them both, with their respective accents,
    Spanish and American, very American.
    Anyway, it’s just my opinion. I’m not a teacher.
    Of course, James’suggestion will be of greater help.
    Good luch!

    zigmund

      “…help all of us to improve / improve,” okay?
      You could only listen to the teacher when he is
      explaining the topic and you can do it as many times as you need to understand the lesson well.
      Good luck!

      zigmund

Thank you James, I am really improving my English language. ❤

    I want to be your friend because I am interested in Saudi Arabia. Please contact me or let me know your IG.

    My IG is haridan.jhondum you can send me DM.

    Thank you.

    Jhondum

Hi James ! ) Most of what you’re saing I agree with you but in 7 Quiz I can’t agree … becouse if I really like a song, to sing (the song) for me is easier than to speak (in English, ofcousre). Anyway It’s the good job !!! ) And Thank you James for the lesson, Good Luck !!!

    Hi, how are you? My name is Esmailyn, im from Dominican Republic. I went to Brazil last year i love your country.

    ecs02

Thank you James. I’m gonna do everything you’ve said. Specially with movies. I love watching movies and wish to watch one without English subtitles. I really need practice with my listening. One question. Do you think is convenient to pay a personal English teacher. I’very been thinking of paying one who charges $40 per hour. I’m just afraid he/she teaches me what I already know. I need real English conversations. Well, for the moment I’m just gonna follow your steps. Thank you Engvid teachers. You really help us a lot with your lessons. 😉😉😉

          kotoz

Music helped me a lot when I was in high school. I listened to music I like, wrote down what I heard, did it again for a few days and then I compared what I wrote with the actual lyrics. I still do it from time to time, but nowadays I mostly watch videos to practice listening.

Mateo Bonavento

I really like it. Thank you so much for your lessons!

If music we love is the soundtrack of our life it would be great to have a multilingual background.

SKIKDA

    Hi, SKIKDA!
    You`re so brief this time….
    And I`m back on the game. There is the rats race coming. Who`ll be the first the next time?
    But I have a trouble. How will we call the winner? I wait for your suggestions.
    See you…

    nataanna

      hi nataanna , welcome back to our forum,i think as we were in a pond last time and our pond getting deep and wide,and if you share me the opinion, i suggest the next winner will be called ‘ the shark’ because it obviously can beat the bird and the dog and the big fish and many others in the pond, or what do you think ?

      SKIKDA

        Hello SKIKDA! You carried out the marvelous idea!!!
        We needed the new blood to our competition!
        Only figuratively, of course.
        Our motto for the next week: JAWS AND SPEED!!

        nataanna

Hi, James! I’m sure you will be able to study Russian. You have almost native Russian pronounciation. Good luck!

Vladimir

About movies (in English), putting subtitles in English is very helpful too. You can find them on internet as well.
Thanks!! great lesson :)

JuanPablo01

Hi all. How is it going? I am a new comer and very delighted to be present here among all those learners who are so much eager to perfect their Eng skills. Like all of you, I am also exceedingly fascinated to burnish my language skills day in day out.This website is one of the best places I have found to enhance my understanding of the beauties one can find in putting time and effort in learning a splendid language like Eng.

Effortlessness

Thank you for this lesson from Spain! I got 10 in the quiz!
I’ve lernt whit The Beatles’s lyric for example!!!
You are an excellent teacher James!

Mercedes AyM

Fantastic teacher! Thanks the lesson.

KingaV

I have doubted in the 4 question when you repeat what you listen to the actors in the movies, I thought you would improve your reading but it doesn’t right, then you will have a better “accent” if you repeat their phrases, but anyhow I was learning how to sign the song “Johnny B. Good” by Chuck Berry in 1958, it is the last song I have studied, and it begins so: “Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, back up into the woods among the evergreens, there stood in a log cabin made of earth and wood, where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Good, who never ever learned to read and write so well, but he can play the guitar just like a ringing a bell, go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Good…” and so on keeping in mind all the lyrics but they are little longer, furthermore I also remember to learn English with a lot of enthusiasm when I listened to the song “Stand by me” sung by Playing for change, it was very tender and relaxing, very deep performance, the best sketch I have ever seen and listened. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, it has been a pleasure to learn English with your lessons.

angardiobel

    I had some mistakes in the lyrics of the song “Johnny B. Good”, in the second line would be “way back up into the woods…”, in the last phrase “just like ringing a bell” and also in the chorus would have other “go Johnny go go,…”, it’s normal because I didn’t remember very well after some time. Thanks.

    angardiobel

In my opinion, I think that sing a song in English can be easier than speaking a language for someone who is a learner, because they repeat the sounds and the words but when a beginner tries to speak L2, he’she has to think a lot before saying something.

Matallana

    How can i follow you????
