Hi mr James thank you you so much for this video.. But I have a question: I have 2 years learning English as a beginner but my problems I can’t talk grammatical. And the other problems when I want to learn from YouTube specially engvid from where to get start as beginner? Vocabulary or grammar… ? Can you give us a plane to get start ? From where to where?

Friday, November 13th 2015

    Hello Mr. Fadil. Just some comments on your post . . . I will put it this way: “Hi Mr. Smith (last name); I have been studying English for two years; I am a beginner. My problem is that I can’t speak English well; I make (some/many) grammar mistakes.”

    Hope it helps. Good luck with your English !!!

    Sunday, December 27th 2015

    hi mth fadil .. James put a video on engvid explane how we should start its like a plane you can follow..

    Tuesday, January 24th 2017

Hi James!
If you’d known how helpful you are!
Thank you for these useful tips!
I get used to your fast speed of speech :D Today’s lesson is different!
Good luck, dear teacher!

Friday, November 13th 2015

Hi James. Your videos are the best of all engvid!
I have question. I understand most of Your words in Your videos, My grammar is not to bad too, I think. But I have problem with speaking. Is any way to learn speaking without other person?
I often speak with myself in my mind, but is this a good way?

Friday, November 13th 2015

    hie, Kikoks !
    first of all, leaning a language means to speak (read, write, and hear), it’s not the way that you put yourself in situation of thinking or something like that, but anyway …
    what I’ve understood is that you asked for how can you speak English (make a conversation) but “without other real persons” isn’t that?!… i think that i can help you brother :)
    so, there’s an application you must to use it “Conversation anglaise” :
    i think that’s a very helpful method to your case
    don’t forgot ” don’t speak just with yourself and just in your mind ” … good luck ! brother

Thank you, James

Friday, November 13th 2015

Thank you Mr.James its really helpful and i was don’t know bout the cc button that will help me in a lot of other videos :)

Friday, November 13th 2015

    Hi Man!!!
    Go to the Settigs, there you can put subtitules in the video.

    Sunday, November 22nd 2015

Hello James!
The subtitle of Youtube is not really good. It writes fool things too often.

Friday, November 13th 2015

slow down !!

Friday, November 13th 2015

I dont believe that I was always searching videos with subtitles and I can just click in “CC”… kkkk Thanks James, It will be very, very useful for me….
STOP!!! Useful for me or to me???!!! kk

Friday, November 13th 2015

Thanks Gem, but I was wondering where is the quiz?!

Friday, November 13th 2015

    You don’t need a quiz for this Video, bro

    Sunday, December 6th 2015

I am new in this site and I wanna say i love this site

Friday, November 13th 2015

Thanks James for this advice, I´ll do it.

Friday, November 13th 2015

hi James, Im happy to be here, your lessons that I have learnt are very useful and informative. thanks a lot.

Friday, November 13th 2015

That’s so cool, It’s not new but very useful. I like how you say about cc, it’s good for beginner but not good for regular or intermediate and above, I find out why my listening skill did not improve, because of my habitat on using cc regularly. Thanks a lot, James

Saturday, November 14th 2015

Mr Drear James Whatever you had spoken..,
everything I did after few weeks when I got here an account on site..
As you told people that #1 close captioning #2.maximize the screen #3.Speed..
I did same thing after few weeks and whatever you are teaching everything will be displayed in screen if people clicked subtitle button that gives text what exactly you taught that I will be writing down in my notes and read after this is what I’ve been doing so far that helps me a lot I guess.. .
Thanks James Anyway..
I want to ask one question James that is When I know I’m very good speaking in English? this is the question I want soon answer from you James
I’m waiting for you response post as soon as possible James Please..

Saturday, November 14th 2015

Hello James .
It is terrific , with caption I understand all what you have said. For example when you say button it sounds like ” bun” . Before using caption I had guessed what you were talking about but were thinking that it could be another term for button.
Unfortunately the gear button doesn’t give me the possibility to speed up or slow down the pace of your speech , I just can change the image clearness. Maybe with this option , at a low pace, I would hear better the transition between the different syllables . Thank you for giving us these tips , they will be very helpful with your videos as you are actually together with Jade my most challenging teachers . Don’t change anything. Thank you And carry on

Saturday, November 14th 2015

Hi, I have a question, Does your learning video have subtitle? It yes, How can I get it?

    Saturday, November 14th 2015

      Thanks a lot SOU304. This is my first time in chat.
      Your tip so cool. I visited this site, subscribed, and added another tip such as James thought us on Youtube. This speed button are terrific help tool!
      Now If the lessons are really ease to me, then I’ll turn up the speed button of the conversations in this new known site. Who knows in the future Could I turn up Jame’s Lessons? It’s a joke!

      Thanking for two others people by new information, that I’ve gotten in this chat… I’ve checked those tips, and it they were good tools for improve myself. Thanks FaridFB and Bilal Alshareef

Tuesday, February 16th 2016

thank you very much.
i knew the fact how to use these vedeos becouse of you.
i am a beginner but i study hard with your vedeos and i will become to intermediate.

Wednesday, February 17th 2016

    Hi Noah,

    Just a little thought for your English. When you start a sentence the very first word needs to start with a capital letter. For example, Thank you very much instead of thank you very much and also ‘I’ should be always written as a capital letter rather than ‘i’, a small letter. I hope this can help you perfect your English. :-)

    Tuesday, February 23rd 2016

Hello James. I want an information:how much does the subscription?
thank you

Friday, February 19th 2016

Saturday, March 4th 2017

I was disappointed when I turned on the subtitles at program showed at Investigation Discovery channel! Many words were wrongly spellt. Ex. “knees” instead of “niece”…

Sunday, March 19th 2017

    Yes, subtitles can often be inaccurate or have spelling errors, especially when they’re automatically generated. I have found that news programs have the best subtitles, because presenters have been taught to speak very clearly.

    Monday, March 20th 2017

Thank you for the helpful video.
