Thanks James!
You are the best teacher I have seen before.

Friday, December 5th 2008

    Thanks Maxim… *ahem* you made a small mistake.

    You don’t have to say “I have seen before”. The present perfect means that something has happened before and has an effect in the present (I taught you in the past and you think I am a good teacher now) so all you have to say is,”I have seen”.

    If you want to use “before”, then you have to put a subject between the past participle and the word before.

    For example, “I have seen you before”.

      Oh James, sometimes it’s strange, how to use some phrases correctly. For instance: “What are you talking about?” In the end we have an extra word “about”, ok I know it came from beginning of sentence and here it is not an extra word :). But there are many other examples, unfortunately I can not remember any right now (maybe because there isn’t lol). I don’t know why but “I’ve seen before” sounds for me good and correct, maybe because I heard it before. I’m not arguing, you are right of course :) and I will be know now. Anyway I can talk and write this message more less correct just after 3 months of studying, and this is because teachers like you make learning interesting, enjoyable and as effect effective. Thanks!
      Your friend forever, Max

        As James explained. If you want to say “before” when using present perfect, you have to put the object between past participle and “before”. For instance, I have driven “that car” before. You noticed that I used the object “car”. So, you are the best teacher I have seen. Regular usage of it would be like this. I have seen that teacher before. All this sound very similar, but however there is slight difference…

        Looking years back at my comments I clearly see how lame they were. However, this is a learning process and when you try again and again it gets better every time. You are so natural teacher, welcoming new students and basically start from scratch with them, in a short time making them capable communicate in English. That’s a grit and thanks for all your hard work.

      slm abi ben turkceyi ve engiliczeyi ogreniyorum >ben iyi bir site ariyorum ingilizce ogretiyor ama turkce dille bana yardim edermisin iyi bir siet biliyorsan memnun olurum

      Thursday, October 24th 2013

    I think you forgot “ever” in your sentence:
    You are the best teacher I have ever seen (in my life). This means you’ve seen many teachers but this one is the best. You may emphasize it using “in my life”, “before”, “so far”…

    Well, this is what I learned at school.

    Hope it helps :)

    Monday, March 16th 2015

    very useful

    Saturday, March 25th 2017

    Hey thanhhungpro8x ,

    I’m working on an essential grammar video package that you might be interested in. It will cover all of the essential grammar points you need in order to go on to the advanced levels — from the simple present to the perfect tenses.
    I’ll leave you details when it’s ready.


    Wednesday, January 14th 2009

      Hello James,
      This is my first post to you and first of all I want to thank you for all this great lessons :-) They are very helpful and this video, you talking about here, is exactly the thing this site is need for (and of course we all)- a complete course for a general topic.
      I’m sure we all waiting for this package impatiently. Eny news so far? Is the “Past Simple vs. Present Perfect” lesson part of it? I hope this is it.
      However, I want to wish to you to be safe, be well and, if it is no big trobule, to have spare time for making more and more lessons here, in engVid :-)

      Once again, thanks for all of you.

      Saturday, July 11th 2009

I know that my English is not perfect, but it’s not worst.

I want to speak good ( wish to speak ” Perfect”) English.

Would u please help me with this ?

can you give me some tips which will help me to speak English as my mother tongue?

I can hardly spent 30min – 1hrs ( max )per day to learn English.

Hello, James!

How’s it going? I have to say that your classes are pretty good. They have been helping me a lot. Since I’ve started watching them, my skills improved a lot. Nowadays I can understand English much better than I used to do in the past. It’s been a great pleasure to take part of your classes. Thank you for all your commitment. And keep on doing this kind of video which is very helpful for us. It’s a very good idea to give students some tips on how we can learn English in a faster and more effective way.

Bye Bye.

Tuesday, July 6th 2010

Hi James!

I always knew that to learn something without giving urself much headache, lessons should be interesting, BUT what you are saying here is more useful for teachers who want to teach more effectively (here I’m talking about the “interesting” only :)). May be you can also give an advice HOW to make the process interesting if you are learning something by yourself?
Thank you in advance :)

Hi you are agood teacher that I didnt meat anyone like him thanks for the lesson

Friday, August 6th 2010

“wops ” Iam sorry about theword . its not meat it is met because am talking in the past

Friday, August 6th 2010

Hi there,
I like this idea that something should be interesting in order to remember it. If you find something interesting then your emotions are being stirred up and you remember things better. Reviewing is also fine but those two things are not enough. We should also connect new vocab with something that we already know. Then our brain neurons create a powerful network that is link to the existing one. That’s why I highly appreciate James’s lessons on roots, prefixes, vocab pyramid and stuff. they just connect the new with the old and I remember better.

Sunday, August 29th 2010

thanks a lot

Tuesday, September 7th 2010

You’re such a good and interesting (according to your key words)teacher. Thanks for your help.

Hello James!
I just watched your video and I think it will be very useful. I have my 1st Language English IGCSE exam in two weeks and I’m freaking out. Although I am solving many past paper questions and reading books. But I’m stuck on how to write an effective narrative writing.
How can I improve my english? Can you make some video on how to write an effective story based on any questions, please? because now I feel really inspired to write but just need the right techniques.
Thank you

Sry, *videos

Monday, April 25th 2011

Hello James. I have recently started to learn English. I know that my English is bad for now. But I really want to ask you one question. You telling that the key is – interesting, need to find a good teacher. Our teacher is not so good, she is Director of English shcool and a teacher also. She left for 2 day and put another teacher to teach us. It was very interesing 2 lessions. We would like the another teacher to be our teacher, how we can say to the first teacher that your lessons are boring. She not gives etentions to us. After 2 days with the another teacher we know much more then after a munth. She is fun and we talk much more with echother. Exuse me for my bad english please) How it can be nice not to offend the first teacher, but we going to stay in her shcool anyway. Exuse me for my bad english please)

Sunday, May 8th 2011

    Hmm… that’s a difficult situation. I think it would be easier if you approached the first teacher (the director) as a group, and made this suggestion to her. But it will be difficult no matter what.

    Friday, May 13th 2011

ops) I wrote it twice

Sunday, May 8th 2011

I love it when you give example about how to get girls. hehe . Thanks for the vid. It helps a lot people that are in need of a proper and effective instructor for english language. Godspeed.

Sunday, May 29th 2011

Hello, James! Thank you for the tips! I think this kind of information many peolple who study know, ut it’s easy to forget, so we al need to refresh how properly to study effectively.
Now, as I know you teach the phrasal verbs, I want to ask what is the meaning of the expression “do with” because Tina Turner has a song called “what’s love, got to do with it” and I don’t understand exactly what she want to say with it. And actually I would like to use this expression if it means that you sould be involucrated with something. For example, is it correct if I say “There is something you must do with…”?
Thanks again! Best regards!

Thursday, June 2nd 2011

hey james can i add you in the list of people who inspire me on facebook?
this much you inspire me,very nice teacher you are!

I wonder how can you devote yourself to teach English free…or may be i’m just to narrow minded to figure out how to run teaching free as you do… well i adore the way you do to enlighten people..keep going buddy..

Friday, October 21st 2011

Hi EngVid,
I am a new to this website and I watched a couple of video,s. It,s really useful and effective. As you see my English is not good enouph so I hope you don,t mind it.
I have problem with understanding the essence of an English test. There is only one video about thid topic. You explained that reading a title, asking a question, compair and visualizing are the best tips but I am wondering of I have enouph time to read it 3 times. Could you give me some extra tips?
Is it true that tat good understanding depends on good vocabulary? how can I improve my English vocublary? and my last question is:
in order to improve my reading skils, should I watch all the videos of this website.
I wish you all the very best.

Hi: Got question from EinVid management….How Could I become a paid member..of EidVd……What would be the fee?



Thursday, August 16th 2012

thanks for your sharing

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

Hey man. What did you say in the end of your videos? It’s like “tchau” that in portuguese is “bye”. And I think you’re a great teacher.

Monday, August 27th 2012

As a native English speaker I learn SO much from these videos. This is applicable for any class or material we want to learn. I never understood how the neurons operated before. Now homework and review makes sense, (this gives the necessary time frame) and I understand why “cramming” for a test is not the answer. After 60 years I am still learning new things thanks to the videos here.

Monday, September 10th 2012

Thanks a lot for your interesting teaching, James. I’ll try to do what you say, and I hope my English learning will be better.

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

thank u for your effort , but i think the video will be more effective if u insert subtitles to it .thanks again :)

Tuesday, September 18th 2012

I really really appreciate u! you are a good teacher.I’m interested to learn with your video always.because you are put unforgettable lesson in my mind!thanks a lot!

Monday, September 24th 2012

I have learned a lot here! Thanks for that!

Wednesday, September 26th 2012

Friday, November 9th 2012

rely i am sad
no one response my question

Tuesday, November 13th 2012

Dear james,
The method you have chosen to teach English is really wonderful. in my points of view of one of the greatest problems students have is that they do not consider English language very important.
i mean they think, it can easily be learned.
however, it really needs hardworking and practice
i am glad to have visited you awhile ago.
thanks and best regards,

Tuesday, November 20th 2012

You’re incredible,mam!Bravo!!!

Wednesday, November 28th 2012

Hi, there is nothing wrong with the word repetition, if it comes along with an intelligent or interesting course. So long.
P.S. I’m using Cambridge Dictionary for advanced learners. There is even an online version of it on the Web/the Net.

It was a interesting lesson about how to learn more effectively but what about to learn more efficiently? I prefer to be more efficient than more effective because I lose less time to learn, anyway we have learnt something else. Thanks a lot teacher James from engvid.
