Well…. Mr. E!!!!! James, sorry, l DO need your beautiful tasty fat worm.
SKIKDA, nkh453, nataanna – 0/0/1!
I’m the first one more time.

nataanna

    Congratulations Natanna. For two days I don’t feel very well. I have a bad stomachache. That’s why I couldn’t compete. Good luck guys

    nkh

      But I’m still a member of your group. I try again

      nkh

        Of course! I waited for your comment.
        I hope you get well and soon.
        It seems to me you are determined and hardworking, so your efforts will bear fruit!

        nataanna

      i hope you will heal quickly, take care.

      SKIKDA

        Thanks for your kindness guys

        nkh

    You three seem to be stubborn to get the firsts places, let me think, I guess I should be a member of your team!

    struggleForEng

      Welcome struggle for eng.

      nkh

      you’re welcome struggleForEng it will be more fun

      SKIKDA

        Thanks SKIKDA, you’re all making this website amusing :)

        struggleForEng

      Hi, struggleForEng!!! You are highly welcome!
      Your participating will make the competition even more exciting. The more the merrier!!

      nataanna

        Thanks, I hope I meet your expectations, does the competition really need to eat worms! In reality I am so gourmand and I dont remember that I cannot eat whatever in my country, but when it comes to worms, then I dont think so :P, what do you think about spaghetti or noodles, It is another sort of worm :P it is very fit for as I am so gourmand

        struggleForEng

          Hi StruggleForEng! You’ve made my day!
          But bargain is a bargain! There’s nothing to eat on EngVid except worms, that the early bird gets…. Please, read comments to the previous lesson by Rebecca (the verb “to have” in the past) And you’ll get the idea of eating.
          Take care!

          nataanna

        So do I

        SID

        well I’m new here but I want to compete you .. because I think it will help us to get better faster..

      struggleForEng

    Congratulations! 🏆 <-- This is the best I can do on short notice, sorry

    engVid Moderator

    Hello!

    SID

      Hi! I’ve read your profile. We are colleague, you know! Welcome to our team!

      nataanna

        l am new here tell me more abaut this group

        crispin

      Welcome Hungry for learning.
      Natanna, what a cool group you made. I think our group will make this webpage a better place for all it’s members to learn English and have a little fun. What do you think???

      nkh

        Hello nkh453! It seems to me that WE made this group! Thanks to EngVid!! And I hope we’ll be joined by many others.
        I will say after Rebecca and some wise men:
        Tell me and I forget,
        Teach me and I remember,
        Involve me and I learn!!! Aren’t they great?!
        We need more emotions while studying and the best one is laughter! So, let’s make more fun!!!

        nataanna

Thank you, James! Your lesson is just for me! I’m not very good in small talks, mainly because of lack of good start and sometimes poor vocabulary. The vocabulary should be extended by your own efforts and you may be taught speaking skills, on the contrary.
You made me laugh on the questions. You’ve got some point on men’s bellies! You must have been tried hard on it at gym! Thank you one more time!
Guys!!!!! Are you still sleeping? Why are you keeping mum?

nataanna

the same scenario repeated i will try again.

SKIKDA

    Don`t upset, SKIKDA! I must confess, I`ve got an advantage these days – I`m on vacation now, so, I`ve got more free time. But I`m leaving for Greece in a week and I don`t know if there is free Wi-Fi. You might get revenge. I am glad to see you here today.
    You know, worms are slippery and can escape easily. Stay tuned!

    nataanna

      i consider this kind of you,i would to say that i’ve found that competition something useful to make fun in this site, and it will be a pity what you’ve said, and i would to say also i only’ want to get revenge of english and i want to overcome it’ if this is correct literaly. good luck in your life and have a good journey.

      SKIKDA

        Thank you! But I leave in a week, it means, that I go abroad on NEXT Friday. We have the whole week to compete! See you

        nataanna

          i’ll be ready so.

          SKIKDA

    i will correct my mistake ” the same scenario IS repeated i will try again” my the most common mistake , i always forget the verb of the sentense.

    SKIKDA

You got 9 correct out of 10.
It was very easy for me ….I only wrong is this :
6. After complimenting someone on his/her strong arms, what could you ask?
and I write :Do you take steroids?
and correct was :What exercises do you do?
thnks a lot for me …I buy a gift for myself :)

amirrezaee

    Congratulations amirrezaee. Believe it or not I’m really happy for you. Go on and don’t give up.

    nkh

      thank you …I never give up…but like to learn English but I need to learn easy word at first …I have most movie to Watch if I have enough time …thanks for Nkh.453 .

      amirrezaee

I love your T-shirt, James :D Cool! Where did you buy?
Thank you for your lesson. I got 9 correct out of 10 :)

Happy04

Hello James. Thanks. It was cool. And I could understand your words completely in this time.

nkh

is it bad/wrong to talk about someone’s eye color?
some people have different eye color and i found that fascinating.

another thing is ‘its been snowing all week, i might get bored of it! so if i say “i hate snow” wouldn’t it be more obvious?

namnai

8.10 How can I start a conversation in the internet even I can’t see the the face of person who is talking to me, so what should I say when I wanna making a conversation with someone

LeoAdavirat

Hello james you are a good teacher and your teaching method is increadble.

ghumman

Thanks James for this lesson it was great, I got 10/10.. and was easy to understand..:)

marcos alexandre

    hi marcos, let me say something if you don’t mind: i just was wondering and i’ve asked myself ‘why the most brazilians learn english’ because they are overwhelming here, could you tell me the reasons which they push them if anything prevent you .take care.

    SKIKDA

      We are surrounded by english stuff so we are used to seeing movies, goods and several things in english, i think it’s common because english became an influential language.
      Brazilian have a schedule at school some of them learn English or Spanish and we have more interest in other cultures too. I mean people that learn languages. :)

      Ryuxzaki

Thanks for lesson! I’ve got one question – what’s the differents between “to be very best” and “to be big on something”?

Pat Hollman

Hi James. Talking to people is not easy to me. I can’t talk well with people even in mother language, Japanese lol. So It goes without saying, talking in English is hard as well. I often have hard time to keep conversations in both Japanese and English. I have to get rid of my shyness.

juneriver

    me too It’s so frustrating. But I need to overcome it and force myself :)

    Ryuxzaki

Hi James! Nice video, that was really interesting, thanks for teaching us how to start a conversation. I am sure those questions will help us to have a nice conversation.

Aleachi

Hi James, beautiful lesson.
May I suggest you to write a little up on the whiteboard for your next lesson please, because I sometimes use subtitles and it doesn’t allow to follow you in the last part of the whiteboard. Share it with your collegues, too.
I love all of you.
Best regards
Alexins
(Ps: Excuse my English, I only started learning it recently)

Alexins

Hey guys! Don’t you think James is better than Will Smith in “Hitch…”?

Your lessons are very good to improve our listening. Thanks James:)

It is my first comment here but I saw many lessons and all of them are great. Thank you for your job

AlsuMaslo

    Saw is wrong, watched is right

    AlsuMaslo

Great lesson! Didn’t think twice before sharing it. I learned a lot! Thanks so much, you’re a great teacher!Hope you keep helping learners with their skills. Byeee!

hellen martinelli

Thanks James.

rodrigues.rd

I am glad to watch your new lesson, James! Good tips to speak with nativspeakers, there are many topics which can help to do that: a sport, a weather, a music, books, a history, etc. We only need to find interests of person before starting conversation. Many thanks!

Vitalii UA

Good hints and good lesson James! But I don’t think that I will start a conversation with a man talking about his arms. What about sports? Anyway, thanks for the lesson!

Leo Lima

Cool ! Not considering some things , it was good ! Thanks

Soei

    Hello teacher Soei, could you please explain about this sentence: not considering sth. What do you mean from this expression?🤔

    nkh

      Hello . I mean without paying attention to some things that maybe I don’t like! Best wishes

      Soei

Nice lesson James!!Waiting for your next one!!
Thanks ;)

knopfler86

Great video, as always. I really enjoyed it. In the place I live it’s quite hard to get someone to practice with. Thera are not many people who speak english, but I try my best.

chenryjovany

Whoah, what amazing leson. Thanks for your share.

buitamhtk

hahaha i liked that moment when you said ” these things you have not to say them to women”
weel, thank you sir again, very useful
Antar from Algeria

Antar

A large lesson to learn how to improve our conversation skills and how to speak and listen while we get and meet friends, but I have doubted in the question about the hair and strong arms, because I thought that if you change the topic of the question, maybe you will build a more interesting and great conversation than only speaking about the same thing always, anyway, it depends on the temper of your friend. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, as always a good performance.

angardiobel

    Hello angardiobel. I read your profile. It seemed interesting to me. And you write perfect. So I think if such texts you can write, undoubtedly you are good at speaking too. I just can tell you;good luck with your difficult and expensive test and your Great GOALS.

    nkh

      Thanks nkh.453, I am learning step by step to write though I always have some doubts to translate from Spanish to English, but when I speak then I have to memorise and remember forms and expressions which are differents and difficult in every case. Good luck is necessary for us because nowadays everything tends to be more complicated than before, and you have to encourage or cheer up yourself to continue with our goals, it’s a good thing to make comments about our learning. Thanks again and keeping on to improve our English level.

Can I use your video to my book for free? I wont forget to give credit title from you. My book is intended to Indonesia students. So, the book is for educational and commercial purposes. Hope to see your reply soon.

andhita

I got 8 out of 10! (I’m sleepy, it’s almost 11 pm in São Paulo).

It’s really curious the fact that English course books just present THIS “standard” structure: Hi, my name’s Flávia. I’m 27 and I’m from São Paulo, Brazil. :D
Nobody does that, and, like always, James makes a fun role play talking like this…

I would describe this lesson as interesting and useful.
Thank u one more time, dear teacher James.

Hey,u look good wearing orange, haha. \o/

See ya! ;)

Hello there James. It’s a great lesson. You gave me plenty of ideas how to make an interesting conversation. Honestly, I am not good at making small talk. Most of the time, I feel like I’m running out of words to say. Thank you so much! Learning English is fun because of you, Teacher James! Have a good day!

Lou

Hello James! Thank you! This is a great and very useful lesson, as all of your lessons!

So please, help to how speak like fluent English!

Hi Natanna, Sorry for late respond and Thanks for your feelings, That’s right I didn’t say anything about my job, You’re very good with finding sensitive things, in fact, I had quite bad times in my life, but fortunately from a few week I got my first job from years ago!

Life is sometimes down and sometimes up!

I promise you to edit my profile soon and I’ll make it more positive!

      wael.hakam

Haha James.
You said “If you don’t do it to your mother or sister, don’t do it to another woman.” In Turkey we use it this way: “Would you be pleasant if it was done to your mother or sister.”
I just want to say this. Good bye.

dervishan

    Haha ,
    Here in India also we use it in a similar manner.

    Be welcome to the Engvid group! I know I am replying a little bit late, but “better late than never”. Ha-ha!

    Good luck in your English learning and until next time!

Hey James, Im from Brazil, lets have a coffee later?

mariana dias

Hi James!

I have been practising English on Skype since last June and the most difficult part in communicating with foreigners, besides problems with grammar and pronunciation, is to find topics to keep on talking to a person you had never seen before.

We usually chat for the first time, it’s nice, we introduce ourselves, and don’t talk anymore…

Therefore, we can use your tips to make our conversations longer. I agree with you. Compliments, friendly questions, and politeness are some good ways to create a pleasant dialogue.

Thanks a lot and see you soon!

Eduardo França

I got 10 of 10. Very interesting lesson. James I like to learn English with you lesson, it’s not boring, fun enough.
