    Hello Canardo. I just noticed that you are one of active members. It’s awesome we have active members here.

    Wednesday, December 14th 2016

      I’d like to be even more active, the problem is that I haven’t got enough time. But this is a very common trouble, I suppose.
      Stay well.

      Thursday, December 15th 2016

    Thanks, Canardo. Sometimes, it’s important to do things a little differently to keep things interesting.

You are my favorite English teacher! I love your lessons. Star Wars, Harry Potter and now Final Fantasy! I’ve only played Final Fantasy VIII and it is absolutely my favorite game. I would ask you a question: why don’t you make a video on The Lord of the Ring? It would be amazing! XD

P.S. Are there mistakes in my comment?

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    *Rings, obviously XD

    Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    No mistakes detected, Diego.

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    Wonderful

    Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    Nice, SKIKDA! Remember to use a base verb after “had better.” (ex. “I’d better study English every day and watch every lesson that comes out on EngVid.”)

    Thanks for studying with us.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

Interesting idea to make this video! Thank you, Alex!

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    No problem. Thanks, Vitalii. I’m glad you liked it.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

I didn’t know that PlayStation was Japanese, thanks

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    No problem. Yes, Sony is a Japanese company.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

It’s a very interesting way to learn English, Thanks a lot Alex

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    You’re welcome. I wanted to try something a little different.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

This is my most favorite game of PlayStation platform and hopefully the remake version will not ruin beautiful memories that I have for FF7. Thank you very much Alex for the great effort that you contributed to us. You are awesome!

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    My pleasure, Alex. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I also have very nostalgic memories of this game and this time period.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

Where’s me? Give me a credit for this idea
But at always, you are the best

Tuesday, December 13th 2016

    Thanks, TrollerGamer.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

Nice way, I am happy because I got 10 out of 10. It seems to me I am getting go head to fluency.

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    “It seems to me I’m improving my fluency.”

    Nice job on the quiz.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Hi again Alex.I watched your video completely and I think it’s so useful. As a matter of fact you made an interesting training video. I really enjoyed. Thanks a lot.

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    Thanks a lot! :) I’m really glad you got a chance to watch it and that you enjoyed it.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

I haven’t watched the video yet, but I swear I swear I’ll do soon. I just have an urgent question now and I would appreciate if one of the teachers answers me. Is there a difference between “bookshop” and “bookstore” ?? Is one word better than the other to describe the place from which we buy books?? I have this thought because of the words ” shop” and ” store” themselves. Shops usually smell better than stores, hahahaha particularly the smell of old books. :)

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    Hello. I’m not a teacher but I guess I can answer to your question. Bookshop is a synonym of bookstore. If I don’t make a mistake bookshop is a shop which sells book while bookstore is a store which books can be bought and sold. I hope it can be useful and you can understand my words. Good luck.

    Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    “Shop” is more common in British English, “store” in North American English – but they mean the same thing!

    And yes, second-hand bookstores smell amazing :)

    Thursday, December 15th 2016

Fantastic, thank you very much. I wrote another comment on Youtube, too ; )

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    That’s cool! Thanks for the amazing support, Cristian.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

100%😊Very useful! 👏

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    No problem! Thank you for studying with me.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Hi Alex unfotanetly there ins’t “Türkiye/Turkey” option, after donate button.

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    Oops! Sorry, I don’t know all the details of that.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Thank you so much, Alex! It’s a great and fun lesson. I adore to learn English by means of computer games. Now I’m playing in Life Is Strange (by the way, Square Enix too). As to FF, I’ve played FFIX on Playstation, it is an awesome game as well!

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

    I love FFIX, and I’m interested in playing Life is Strange one of these days. You have good taste!

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Thank you so much

        Thanks, Julio Cesar. Same to you!

        Monday, January 2nd 2017

thanks a lot. I love english !

Thursday, December 15th 2016

    You’re welcome. I also love English! Haha.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

      Yes English ! My own laguage also is so interesting, but I think the points in your language are more !

      Thursday, January 12th 2017

Simply amazing!!!
And you know, I’ve never played this game, but… You really got me with this video, thanks a lot and keep on it!!!

Friday, December 16th 2016

    Thanks for checking it out, and for enjoying it!

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Hi Alex. Invaluable resource to teach english languaje using videogames. Congratulations Alex and EngVId!!
I would like share something.
My favourite videogame was Medal of Honor. It had historical information (well, a “real fiction” Steven Spielberg style), photos, original videos of WWII, soundtracks by Michael Giacchino (graphics quality uhmmm), but this game put me up to study the english languaje used in the videogame, as well to read and corroborate historical information. Thank you for this lesson. I support you on you propose to continue FFVII and certanly donate to EngVid! Greetings!

Friday, December 16th 2016

    That’s awesome! Videogames can be very educational.

    Monday, December 19th 2016

    Very cool. Thanks for this feedback! I never knew that Giacchino did the soundtrack to those games.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Great lesson! I loved it! Everyone should give videogames a try as a way to improve English learning. They are rich in vocabulary, grammar structures and slang, especially RPGs. The three Final Fantasy games and Chrono Trigger on the SNES helped me a lot during my high school years.

Saturday, December 17th 2016

    Now you’re speaking my language. The SNES era was truly wonderful! I also loved playing Breath of Fire.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

It is really really a great lesson.
I learned a lot of it.
I liked the way that no specific grammar was taught , but random and well chosen

Tuesday, December 20th 2016

    Thanks, Mohamad. My goal was to use the game as a text, and to discuss whatever grammar or vocabulary came up. I hope it worked.

    Tuesday, December 20th 2016

Game, Videos, Films, etc…Can enybody learn to speak English just through these media?.

Tuesday, December 20th 2016

    Depending on your level of engagement with them, as well as your use of outside resources like dictionaries and translators, it can get you to a functional level. To really excel, having another speaker around you helps.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

thank you so much Alex it s an impressive lesson it really helps me a lot to improve my vocabulary

Tuesday, December 20th 2016

    My pleasure. Thanks for checking it out. I’m glad you enjoyed the lesson.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Thank you very much Alex…! I like this kind of lessons!

Wednesday, December 21st 2016

    No problem. I’m glad you enjoyed it! I had a good time making it.

    Wednesday, December 21st 2016

Thanks a lot Alex. The Chrono Trigger also is a good game too. Maybe in future you think about lessons with this title. Cheers.

Thursday, December 22nd 2016

    An excellent choice! I’ve never actually finished the game, though. I have a save file on my Nintendo DS, but I haven’t touched it in almost 2 years now. I’ll need to go back and finish it one of these days.

    Tuesday, December 27th 2016

I got 10/10 marks in the test. When will the videos on 3rd and 1st conditional verbs appear?

Sunday, December 25th 2016

    Nice job! We have videos on 1st and 3rd conditional on the site already. You can check for them with the search function at the top of the page.

    Tuesday, December 27th 2016

Plus, the quiz was great

Sunday, December 25th 2016

I like learning English when you teach

Sunday, December 25th 2016

    Thanks for commenting, Adwait Shiva. I’m glad you enjoyed the quiz!

    Tuesday, December 27th 2016

J’ai 71 ans et donc ne comprend pas grand chose aux jeux vidéos qui passionnent mes petits enfants. Grâce à toi, je peux enfin comprendre un peu et apprendre l’anglais.
Merci, excellent professeur.

Tuesday, December 27th 2016

    De rien, beernaard! I’m happy to hear that you’re improving!

    Tuesday, December 27th 2016

Thank you so much Alex it s an impressive lesson it really helps me a lot to improve my vocabulary …………….slang

Wednesday, December 28th 2016

    That was my intention. Thanks a lot, Shams!

Really loved it…!
you’re such a great help, dude!

waiting for more videos!

Friday, December 30th 2016

It’s a good thing to learn English when you play a video game, it’s very interesting how the game uses the phonetic sounds to explain the situations and you can learn a lot of short terms and definitions. It was a great lesson ’bout these topics with role games. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, a good explanation and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year all of you.

Friday, December 30th 2016

    Same to you, angardiobel. I hope 2017 brings you health, joy, and prosperity.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Wow! I really had fun answering the quiz. I got 9 out of 10. Thanks teacher Alex.

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

I did start learning English with video games, more specifically with FFVIII. I’ve never played FFVII, I’ve been trying to make time to do so but now that FFXV just came out I think I’ll be able to wait until Square Enix releases the remake, and to be honest this is the first time I’ve heard of it, I hope it doesn’t take as long as XV! :)

Saturday, February 4th 2017

thanks Alex, nice lesson.

Monday, March 6th 2017

I relay enjoy your lesson .
Thank’s very much .

Thursday, March 9th 2017

Hello, Alex! I love video games since I was a kid (back in the 80s), and this is one of the most brilliant videos I’ve ever seen on the net! I absolutely loved it! I hope you can record more about english and video games in the future. It’s amazing!

Thanks for all your classes, you are awesome!
