      Excellent class presentation on homonyms James, a bit technical though. But it help me understant a little bit more how the English language works.

      The examples illustrated well enough how these concepts apply to real-world situations.

      Well-designed class, not too mentions the end-of-video quiz.

      Stupendous lesson, no doubt about it James.

      Regino

Thanks a lot! It was useful and funny!

Ludgrig

Nice it’s great lesson. Thanks.

Dr.solaiman

A bit hard for me haha but i’ll keep practice. Thanks

kaaotom

Great video! I really enjoy your videos James! My english level is going hire, oh sorry, higher and higher! :)

Benek

Great and useful lesson. Thanks, James and Engvid staff. Congratulations for the work.

Thiago Lino

This lesson was very helpful! Thanks James!
Please help us with a lesson solving this puzzle:
tough, though, thought, through, thorough and throughout. I always get confused with these words.

aafernads

Great lesson. Very useful for talk fluently! Thanks

Luke

thanks Mr E because he ate my whole pizza. i’m still mixing homophone and homoghrap but i’m working on it :)

hunginsaigon

Thanks for the lesson.

Can you make a lesson about the connected speech? This one of the most important things that native English speakers always use, and I think that simplify the understanding of this language in a real life.

gbudny

thnaks James :)

By the way, anybody pls let me know is that true male bears eat their own cub!?!?! :(

Amy

    I think it’s right.

    songjiayang

    Yes, it’s true.
    1. They are hungry, and the cubs are easy to kill.
    2. They know that if the mother bear doesn’t have her babies anymore, she will want to mate again… so it’s a strategy for the male bear to have sex.

    engVid

      = =!

      Leon

Interesting :D Thank you, James :)

Happy04

that’s a nightmare with homophones in real life for non-native speakers… if short phrase and no subconscious – i often get confused ((

dlvbasys

So interested this video, thanks you , James.

songjiayang

I like it,I understand about this lesson thankyouu

Nina Serenada

Very useful lesson, if you don´t mind I would like to request a lesson on how to use from and out of?
For example:
In ancient time, people used to make sculptures out of mud.
In ancient time, people used to make sculptures from mud.
I hope I can get feedback soon, happy holidays!

apopSD

Thanks James.It’s a great lesson.

nitinrazzz

This aspect of learning English can be improved only by practice I think. When you will be able to feel the language.

vovchick

And,Happy knew Year!!! Oh,sorry, “new”!:)

rioha ahmd

I feel much obliged to Jame for his teaching. I hereby express my heartfelt to Jame.

Son GoKu

Thans Mr James. I like etymology wich i found in your lessons.

masoud2040

Hi, it was a very useful lesson, thank you!
Though I want to complain to your outfit. This stripes on your t-shirt are blinking on a video in a very irritating way. And it distracts from the lesson itself. I believe, it’s well-known issue, and the solution is not to wear clothes with small stripes or squares. Best regards :)

triada

    Don’t you like James, the Sailorman,Triada?

    byte

    You have to watch the video at a higher resolution. Click the gear icon in the lower right and then change the quality.

    engVid

      Hi, thanks for a quick reply! But the problem is not the lower resolution, in a higher resolution it stays the same. Here are some advices what to wear on camera http://www.nacubo.org/Distance_Learning/Speakers_Corner/What_To_Wear_On_Camera.html The quote: Avoid fabrics with complicated patterns such as checks, tight/close stripes, herringbones, tweeds, and loud plaids. Fabrics of this design tend to strobe on camera.

      triada

        I didn’t notice that it is blinking. There might be something wrong with your eyes.

        Alec

    write man in wrung T-shirt :)
    right man in wrong T-shirt
    PS It’s really blinking :(

Just so you know how crazy I am about this

Three million people,from different parts of the world are being expected at the beach.

Stages, where the best rock groups as well some
of the most popular singers will perform for the multitude,are already shining with neon lights, and everything is going to be beautiful.

Once again : A very happy 2015 for you and your
family as well as to the Engvid family.

Thank you all for the excellent lessons.

I am looking for someone who wants to improve his/her english speaking skills over skype. I can understand and type in english pretty well (not perfectly… but still :D), but when it comes to speaking I am total disaster. I want to fix that, but since I am from Iran it is not very common to hear english speech on the street, therefore I can’t develop my speaking skills.This is my skype Id: arsinr rabiee
