I think James is one of the best teachers ever known to me. I am Nisha . I am from India. My English is good but after listening to James’ lectures I could not resist falling in love with his style of teaching. I think his enthusiasm and his crispy humors while teaching is incredible. Not only English but he has helped me improving my teaching skills also, as I am a teacher by profession.

nisha

    Dear Nisha,

    I am from Pakistan. While reading your comment, I found something strange; You used the word “humor” as a countable noun in your comment. I believe the word humor is an uncountable noun in the above context. However, it can be used as a countable noun only when it means the state of your feelings or mind at a particular time for example to be in the best of humors or when it means one of the four liquids that were thought in the past to be in a person’s body and to influence health and character, the latter meaning is of course not in use anymore. I hope I haven’t offended you.

Hi James

I liked a lot your video class. I have one comment to you. I think that it will be better for the student just think in 3 steps on the essay task. Introduction, body (main ideas, support ideas) and conclusion (about main idea) as you explain. Because, when you read about the task you already have a question, so, you do not need to think about another question. And about the thesis, I think is kind of confusing. However, I really enjoy your class.
Thank you
Bye

I’m Ken , I’m from Malaysia , currently I’m studying in Dalat International school in Penang, for the most part i not doing good cause my grammar is bad , the reason is that my previous school didn’t teach a very good job in grammar since the most i could remember is them teaching vocab.heck maybe i just plain forgot everything, so basicly i don’t even know the basic of basic grammar like noun or pronoun or the rest of the basic . I don’t really want to kick out from that school so is there any advice from me ?

Hey:) My name’s Maria and would say, that your video lessons are really good for improving the language skills! Relying my own experience, I thought it’s perfect to study English, when you’re surrounded by native speakers only…but now I fully realized, that your classes are of much use as well – one gets to know so many new interesting words, expressons and even sentences (!), which you can further use in your own speech. Well, I’m completely satisfied with what you’re doing and how you’re teaching! Thanx a lot for that!

This is my first time to visit your website. In my first day, I stayed 5 hours just to exhaust all the basic knowledge I need to learn in speaking. I love to write. But since English is my second language, am not yet expert in using some prepositions appropriately in sentences. I am hoping you can help me on this problem.

    Hi Dian. You should see a video right at the top of this page, under the video title and description and above the quiz. If you don’t see it, please make sure you are able to watch YouTube videos on other sites. Try using a modern browser like Chrome if you are having trouble. Some countries (or schools/offices) block YouTube videos, so that may be the problem.

Hi James,
I haven’t been in school for over 20 years! I just decided to go back to school and pursue my dream career. Now, I have no problem being creative, but my problem is when I have an assignment, specially about writing, I panic and don’t know how to start! I searched how to write an essay and I came across your video and it was helpful. However, I’m still stuck and haven’t starting my essay, I’m finding it difficult to start. My essay is regarding an influential hairstylist and I have to detail his work and how he’s changed the industry, etc….then, I must write how his work influenced me. I can work on hair but I can’t write a simple essay!

Dear Mr James,

I am Hiep, living in Viet Nam. Incidentally, I watched your video about teaching English about how to write an effective essay. It was so exciting to me and the way you taught is very easy to understand for learners. Really, I liked it very much because you helped me to write an essay. Upon to now, I have just writen an essay without layout before writing that is reason why I often get a low point for test. Everything changes for me after watching your video. I think I should spend more time to write as much as possible with layout before starting to write. Thank you again, I always keep in touch with Engvid.com.

yours sincerely,

hello, I`m from Argentina and i love this page so i wrote my essay about which is better love or money, i wish if you could answer me if this essay is good or not.

NOWADAYS WE LIVE IN A VERY CONSUMERIST WORLD WHICH MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN OUR LIVES IS THE MONEY FOR THE HAPPINES AND NOT THE LOVE.

IN THE FIRST PLACE, LOT OF PEOPLE CONFUSED MONEY WITH HAPPINESS BUT THE REAL THING IS THAT THEY DONT SEE LOVE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE. THEREFORE IT’S POSSIBLE THAT YOU HAVE THE MONEY OF THE ENTIRE WORLD BUT YOU FEEL SO LONELY AND POOR IN LOVE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, IT SAID THAT IS WORTH TO BE POOR BUT WITH LOT OF LOVE THAN BE RICH AND DO NOT HAVE ANYONE FOR LOVE. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE SOULD LEARN ABOUT LOVE AND MONEY.

I AGREE THAT IF WE DONT HAVE MONEY IS MORE DIFFICULT TO LIVE AND BE HAPPY IN THE SAME TIME. BUT, IN CONCLUSION I THINK THAT WE DONT HAVE TO CARE SO MUCH FOR HAVE MONEY OTHERWISE WE MUST TO CHOOSE HAVE MORE PEOPLE FOR LOVE.

is this correct?

Maggie

okay, so I think I got the general idea of how I’m supposed to write an essay. But, I’m still kind of confused on how to start it…on the video I learned it will be a good idea to start with a question, for example:
(this is the topic given to me) Should students do part time jobs?) how would you turn that into a different question for my essay ? and what should I do next….this is what I came up with…………….
would a regular student be capable to hande the responsibilities and pressures a part-time job offer?.

Christian

Very useful, i liked Rebecca’s explanation.

Well, reviewing all the concepts about how to write an effective essay, I can remember the rule of 5 steps: First, the question; second, the thesis statements; third, the introduction; fourth, to prove the thesis with main reason and supporting ideas; and the last fifth step, the conclusion. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid, a very interesting lesson.

Dear James
Your video about essay structure make it seem easy but I always have problems with sequence and organisation. In particular when writing academic essays I can never pick out main headings for body proofs-for either side of the argument. where am I going wrong??

Profile photo of AlexisEm AlexisEm

The introduction and how to write an effective essay were excellent but where do i find how to write a body paragraph mentioned in the how to write an introduction video?
