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?

mht fadil

    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 !!!


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

    Reem adam

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!


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?


    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


      don’t forget **


I loved so much this video. I think is very helpful and because this I wrote my first comment here. Congratulations James and Mr E.


Long time no see James, I was looking forward your lesson..


thanks for the tips James, keep it up!


Thank you!


James, really useful your explanation of how use your videos for enhance our knowledge of English.

Thanks a lot, have a nice day!


I need to watch this again. Sllllooooowwwww doooowwwwwwn, James!


    Your board work is impeccable, though. Thumbs up all the way!


    Alex sir, You are kidding James…



    I saw the video wiht slowly control and this was very crazy men!!!!! It was impossible to see, I have a headache for laugh like a mad!!!!!


      Hi Victor. I knew your city. I was there 8 years ago in winter. Amazing people


Thank you, James


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 :)


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


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


slow down !!


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


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


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


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

Mohamed Rabiaa

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


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


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

Mr Drear James Whatever you had spoken..,
everything I did after few weeks when I got here an account on http://www.EngVig.com 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..


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


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


Hi guys )) , I need your help . I am from Armenia and I can’t find sites for watching movies and series in english , there is only in Russian . Please help me ))))

      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

After I have watched all the 923 outstanding lessons from engvid.com my life has changed dramatically and my English skills improved significantly.
Even all the teachers are far way from me I feel very close to them.
I know it isn’t enough, but I would like to say thank very much for all of you.
Guys, keep watching and telling friends about envid.com
Teachers, keep making amazing, educational and cultural videos.
Thiago from Brasil


    Hello Thiago,
    I’m fascinated with your comment. I didn’t know there was someone who had watched this much of lessons from this website. I can’t imagine how much you have learnt here. I haven’t watched so many videos yet, because it’s been just a few months since I found engvid.com, but I can say that I’ve already learnt a lot.


      Keep going. :)


    Hello, My name Haridan from Thailand. I have been learning English since I was studying at university. I believe Engvid is the one of good ways for learning English. My English has been improved because I often learn English from EngVid.com. All of teachers and lessons are good. I always suggest EngVid.com to my friends who want to learn English. Thank you.


      Thank you everyone for sharing your motivational comments.

      Bye for now.


Thanks James. Nice tips!

Fabio Cicerre

Very interesting lesson. I used to watch the videos the way they appeared, sometimes with subtitles, sometimes without subtitles. I didn’t even imagine that there was an option to turn on an off the subtitles… Thank you, James.

James, sometimes I can’t understand your voice, I think you speak too low, by this I usually don’t watch your videos.


Where is the quiz in this video lesson? I cannot find it. May someone helps me?


For me is better to watch a video with captions.Then I have a possibility to check and write down a new words.


Thank U James you are good


Thanks for tips James.


Thank you James so much!!! You are the one who returned me motivation and interest in English!


Dear James,

I am wondering if you can give me (and all students) any advice what system to watch all lessons (in order to learn efficiently) would be the best. I mean how to divide the lessons since there are a lot of topics, teachers :-) etc. I just want to do that in the best and effective way.

Thanks a lot in advance!


Heyyy Guys! Could you offer me some films with clear english?

    That’s a good idea! I’ve added it to the list of lesson requests, and we’ll see if any of the teachers wants to make a video about it.

      Is there a WhatsApp Group apart from Telegram where I can practice with your Videos? I had thought to create it so we could have to work on it and create some quizzies or kahoots exercise homeworks. Thank you.


        There is no official one, so you can start your own if you want!

Hi James. I’m from Poland and I want improve my english, so i have been watching your film for youtube. Nowdays English is very important to find well paid job and you help me to improve this language. Thanks James for your great lessons


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.


    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. :-)


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


Hi James,

Thank you for your three suggestions for English learners on YouTube. I did know and fully operate two of three all the time when using the YouTube but the second one which lets me modify speech speed was not my everyday use. Now I know it because of you. Thank you.


Thanks for the tips dude!

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”…

Fatima de Jesus Ferreira

    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.
