Awsome Lesson!
I usually pay attention to these kind of situation in the words, I like to know where the words came from, but the way you explained it was simply awsome!
Keep doing it ^^

hi James I’m from Brasil I watched your lesson
I think fantastic … by the way I don’t understand almost nothing
But you are good teacher
I hope soon can understand
see you

Friday, April 10th 2009

    It is better to say ‘do understand nothing’, not ‘ don’t… +nothing’. Cuz you know double “negative” means “affirmative” or better known as “positive”.

Dear James
I am new to your program. I really like it so far but I would like to ask you one question. I am wondering if you have any video(videos) regarding the verbal structure in the passive voice because that’s one of the areas that most students have problems with it.
Please let me know.

Once again thank you

Well done James. You inpire me!
It’s great to learn how words are constructed. I’m used to teaching my students about word formation as much as possible. They seem not to understand at first, but then they can build concepts of guessing word meainings from affixes and roots well.

Thursday, July 18th 2013

Well done
