Hi, teacher! I am very greatful for EngVid, it has great teachers and you are definitely one of them! Let me tell you that I have found out that learning for me is easier when I listen to someone else, for some reason reading makes me very tired, I wish this didn´t happen to me since reading is very good; don´t get me wrong, though, I do read but I´m saying that it is better for me to listen to someone else instead of reading on my own, like you guys or audio books. Anyway, like I said I am very greatful and you are a great teacher and this was a great lesson!


Thx Mr/James


    Oh, I’m sorry for you, today you’re not first one!!!??
    Maybe, the next lesson.


      Hello my friends. Kotoz wasn’t the first one because of me. He gave me way by sending me the notification about new lesson on Skype. But I was buzy with my work, so his generosity was in vain. Anyway thank you, Kotoz. You are the real gentleman.
      Thank James for the lesson. I always take notes on the lessons; it’s very useful. But tell you the truth, l have never read books in English! Many years ago I tried to, but it seemed to me too difficult, so I quitted. I will take the new attempt; and will definitely use mind maps. Thank you, James , for encouraging us!


        u r always wlc


        Hello Nataanna and SKIKDA. Both friends.
        I HAVE TO tell you two things;
        First, I need to congratulate SKIKDA for his/her kind heart. Well_done SKIKDA. Now I’m sure you’re the real first one and Winer. Keep it up. Believe me, I didn’t mean it. Don’t be upset with me. If I wrote sth that made you upset, I beg pardon.
        Second, I like to tell you Nataanna; that try reading english books, they are really useful and effective for your speaking skill. Read an english book as soon as you can.
        Bye friends…


          Sorry, wWinner


          Hi nkh,
          Why do you call Kotoz as SKIKDA?
          I think we are four: you, Kotoz, SKIKDA and me


          Sorry, I was wrong.
          Ok, kotoz


Thx Mr/James


Wow! This is a very clear explanation, thanks for your tips, James.
By the way, before this video I didn’t know the meaning of the word “mutt”.


    Hi Canardo! Me neither. I used the word “tyke” instead of mutt.
    See you


      Hi Nataana ,
      I didn’t know mutt neither tyke but according to my dictionary mutt is slang word for dog and tyke is for young boy or michievous child .
      Are you sure we can use ” tyke” speaking about a dog ?
      Thank you for your comment .


        Hi tsamp,
        I was sure that “tyke” meant dog without any breed before your comment….
        Then I made some research and found out that it would be better to say “mongrel” or “cur”.
        But “cur” is the dog whose parents are of different breeds that is frightening or fierce.
        Although some Russian dictionaries translate dog of mixed type as “tyke”.
        Does anybody know the proper word?
        Maybe it’ll be one of the next topic for the lesson? I think many students are interested in vocabulary discribing breeds, types, how to pet, to train dogs. Please….❤


Help ….I Need help ….Why my firefox don’t load this site? …I’m Coming by google chrom already .


    Design problem
    They had better 2 put Script of JQuery in [ body ] not in the head

Echo Wang666

    Hi! It looks like you’re posting from China, where YouTube is blocked. You’ll have to use a VPN to see the videos.

Congrats, amazing tips!!!

Jadson Dantas

I find this lesson helpful.


Hi, James. Thank you for posting the lesson. I would like to ask you for providing subtitles English for downloading, belive, it really helps very much. Provided subtitles as yours videos already has are importante as well but for learners the other way put together with this one will be more powerfull. Please,lets all teachers from Engvid know the suggestion. Sincerily.


    There currently isn’t a way to download YouTube subtitles separately. However, you can see the whole transcript by going to the video on YouTube and choosing “Transcript” from the “More” menu – here’s a picture.

nasir chohan

i appreciate your hard work

nasir chohan

Thank you James! Finally I’ve started to understand all pieces of information you’re talking about. And for me it is a great success, because I thought you are the most difficult teacher from EngVid.

Evgeny Junin

Following this lesson, I almost fall sleeping because I have listened to other videos that “Valery teacher” has sent me by Skype this evening and I have had with him a video conference, to interchange comments that I have had to keep in mind with Mental Maps to explain to him because I have almost spoken during 20 minutes, I am exhausted now with all the evening listening other histories. Very useful to identify a word or concept with a picture, and requesting all the background of a book to get a general idea of it. I have doubted with the timeline concept but I had thought that it was the correct answer though I selected another answer, and the assignment when you have read a book to enquiry its ideas and comments. Thanks a lot, teacher James, it has been a good explanation how to make Mind Maps.


    Friend , with your comment your a british writer already, good

    Ricardo Pizarro

      Yes, I have to practice writing and speaking, but always with mistakes, I can’t avoid my mistakes. Thanks!


James thanks for your lesson !!! you are great!!!


Thanks teacher, just one feedback keep aside of the board, your body is blocking the board (This is a class, not a comic show presentation where you stand in the middle); I like student like to take notes, save screens, look back previous notes you write, should be a column not two or smallers and you should take the right side or left.


Thank you.


Hi Nataana ,
I didn’t know mutt neither tyke but according to my dictionary mutt is slang word for dog and tyke is for young boy or michievous child .
Are you sure we can use ” tyke” speaking about a dog ?
Thank you for your comment .


It’s very helpful


Hi teacher, thank you for this lesson. My main problem when I’m readidng is that I don’t know many words/exprexions/slangs and the process is too slow. I have to review the dictionary many times to understand the general idea. At the end, I take many time understanding and jus get me more stress. Can you help me?


Thank you very much for the lesson. It was really good


Hi James. Very interesting! I’m glad I’ve made only one mistake on the quiz (I got 9 correct out of 10). That means, your lesson was NOT all Greek to me. Thank you very much. See you in your next video lesson. Bye!

Júlio César L Sousa

    Hello mgh. How are you?
    First; happy NOROUZ. Have a nice year.
    Second:I’m an Iranian, like yourself
    You know, I just want to remind you that you have to say ;”you TEACH me a lot of things. ” Not learn me.
    Actually,we learn from James, but he teaches us. Did you understand? I hope you can understand my words. See you again my countryman.


Really nice lesson, this will help me to show my Ss the importance of reading and using mind maps as tools for understanding. Thank you.


Your tips and lessons are really useful but your diction for videos needs to be improved. You talk too fast, sometimes a little low and you should to look directly for us (yours listeners) instead of looking part of the time Toward the blackboard Sorry for my criticism, though.You are very competent


Thank you very much for this last lesson, i like your kind of teach, good tips, i am going to practict them, thanks again and God bless you jame s

Great James . Do you have Skype ? Could we talk once or twice a week to improve my conversation ? Of course I would pay for that … Thanks !!!


Great takeaway Mr. James. I’m really grateful for this lesson. I read one of my classmates comments, she and I have the same way of learning. I’d rather watch, listen and absorb rather than reading. I would highly appreciate your suggestions.


It is Easy To Remember the subjects this way Thank you .

Gracious Gee

I personally appreciate the way you deliver your lesson. this section is particularly interesting. However too short to undertake you are teaching us. So, would mind if you show us how to develop reading skills?

Thanks a lot.


90% thanks a lot


Useful lesson, Thanks, James!


thank you! i got 80


hy. i come from Indonesia. in my opinion, you speak too fast. because i’m not native speakers, it’s hard for me to understand all of the information if you speak too fast. thank you.


hi! teacher this help me a lot


Hi Sir, very good explanation. Thank you


Just use a notepad, or any note taking app (OneNote, Evernote, Readult, etc.), and read through your notes while you are in public transport on your way to work.


i got 80 scores in james teacher mind reading i completed the test three time before 50 scores and 60 scores seconds then third time is 80 scores


Thank James for what you shared with us I really appreciated it. You are right reading is difficult if we don’t know 80% of the vocabulary. So unfortunately I’m one of these people. I didn’t have vocabulary enough to read a book and it made me so depressed. While I was reading I had to translate new words into my native language. It took me much time and I felt I wasted my time. Do you have any advice for me? thank you in advance.


well done,James
greetings from Kazakhstan 16 Dec2o21:)
