Hi James! Thanks in advance for your video. From my personal point of view and experience watching videos, movies, series even news is English but with subtitles also in English has been the way that Im using to understand and improve my listening. Im a native Speaker of Spanish and to be honest, speaking has being the most difficult part, Actually Im a crew member of Royal Caribbean and this type of your is also a good way to learn and improve. I already tried flash cards (I have a lot of them but home) and it worked but only when I was studying. I consider myself so committed of learning English but pronunciation and Phrasal Verbs Oh my God is so hard for me. I just can say this is a process and practice is the best way to learn!

Thank you for your lesson, James, it’s really inspiring.
Let me pass a little off-topic remark, too. What are you saying at 14:13 in the video? The subtitle says “So, what I wrote over here, I was saying”. I can recognize the words “So” (at the beginning) and “saying” (at the end) but none of the words in between. Of course, it’s not your fault, such things drive me crazy a lot of times when listening to English (e.g. movies). Unfortunately, this is a strange (and rather annoying) peculiarity of the English language: words are seldom pronounced as given in the dictionary. In fluent speech, words are very often truncated, and it is the audience’s task to recognize the word from just a few sounds. This is my biggest problem with spoken English. I can learn the spelling and pronunciation very well (both in US and UK English) but understanding these sections when the speaker accelerates all of a sudden and says 4-6 words in a fraction of a second is beyond my capabilities. I would love to see a video about this topic.

I had a good understanding on this lesson. This terms output and input can say so much about life, when a person spend so much time have been capable just to input information. And spend so much time around seeing it like a limbo. After this people say “Hello babe! you welcome!” kisses (by waves)

I’d like to offer read yahoo answers instead of reading fiction. You can even answer to anybody :)

Friday, May 8th 2020

    We do not recommend using Yahoo Answers to learn English. For example, all the users in this video are trying to spell the word “pregnant”. And some of these people are native English speakers.

thanks james for this lesson

I was thinking that if everybody doesnt learn the things in the same way. Because everyone has a different abilities and different brain… that´s crazy thing? I don´t know, but I beleve it.

Friday, May 8th 2020

I didn’t know before how I can make conversation without partner. Hopefully, today I understood good English skills from you teacher. As of today I would like to use all these skills like input/output, pacing, mimicking and creative practice. So this will develop my English skills quickly.As you said, I just want to take one skill like:- WRITING:
I am thanking teacher for your time to teach us more useful lessons.

hi James ,thank you a lot for your effective way of teaching .

The topic of today’s lesson is a very good one and I believe today’s lesson will help many English learners. I think learning English with engVid is one of best ways. By watching various videos of good teachers, we can improve our understanding of English, listening skills and hopefully speaking practice by mimicking what teachers say. We can also improve our output(writing) by leaving comments often. I think I’m at a low-intermediate level. I understand grammars, vocabulary, etc. But I’m not good at listening and speaking. I can listen less than 20% of English movie. But I can listen above 80% of engVid lesson when I really concentrate. If I practice speaking with native speakers more often, I believe I can improve my English faster.
