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!

    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!

        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…

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

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”.

Profile photo of Canardo Canardo

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

    Profile photo of nataanna nataanna

      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 .

      Profile photo of tsamp tsamp

        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….❤

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.

Profile photo of gelson-santos gelson-santos

    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.

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.

Profile photo of Evgeny Junin 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.

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.

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?

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
