What a strange story but a very good lesson, don’t ever drink water from streams ;)


    I totally agree with you, so weird the story.

    Profile photo of gonzalo gonzalo

This was a top class lesson! Even if I nearly sicked after I heard that story :D

Be honest I didn’t know too much words from the blackboard, but you explained them very well. BTW the word “symptom” is international I guess.
Anyway, great lesson, thanx ;)

I don`t envy that girl.. But it was a useful experience to hear this story ) thanx


thank you sir for such a good lesson but em lil bit confuse about word “shunned” could you make a sentence of tht word?


    The word ‘shun’ means to keep away from, to avoid. “He was shunned by his community.” ‘To shun’ is the base verb. I hope that helps.

Didn’t know that it is possible to detect such parasites with x-ray… Is it really possible?

Anton Danshin

    To be honest I am not sure, but I liked the story.

    Profile photo of Jon Jon

    it is hard to detected with x-ray
    but it is always detected with stool analysis or immunity analysis by antibody or antigen.

what a story !!! I like it and it was very easy for me . I learned new vocabulary and really enjoyed your stile of teaching , keep it up

Mr. jano

Hi I’m from mexico, and this situation is not rarely in my country, there are a lot of child whith this problem.

Profile photo of rafasant rafasant

Thanks for the video, Jon. It’s an interesting, new format of lectures. Hope you’ll keep producing such lessons once in a while.


John, how we can ask a question using “used to”? For example, can we ask Did you used to go to the gym? Is that correct, or we must say Did you use to go to the gym? Please tell me which of these examples is correct. Thank you in advance.


    Did you use to go to the gym? This is the correct form because used to is the past tense of use and if you are using the auxiliary verb “did” then the main verb must be in the base form. This is a very common mistake. Take care.

Thanks Jon for giving new vocabulary. I hope you do more lessions like this.

Thank you so much ,I Like the way you teach.
I learen new new vocabulary. I hope you do more lessons like this.Really very useful site
Thanks Jon


hi john how are you ? can you please tell me how can i improve my listening because i find dificulties when i watch a movie on tv so i’m obliged to read subtitle . i know it’s a wrong way so i feel i’m not good at english because i think that mastering english equals understanding without reading .thanks


    I think it is normal to require subtitles in the beginning. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Keep watching films and listening to music. Try to do it without subtitles to test yourself. Then you can watch the movie without subtitles to see how much you understood. Good luck. It takes time, so just enjoy yourself.

Hi, John.Thanks a lot for the listening lesson you”ve given. I’ve visited this site for the first time and it’s really interesting.I liked it because my problem is the vocabulary and I’d like to improve my vocabulary english .I’ve got 2 questions if you don’t mind.
1- Can I give to the word symptom this definition( to feel a change in the body that indicates a beginning of a sickness)
2-shunned( to be sacked , fired or isolated)from a family ,from a job, from a community……


Thx Jon for you lesson!
I have a little question for you. I hope you will answer:
In the Netherlands we also said ‘Butterflies in your stomach’ but in the Netherlands it means you are in love => ‘I have butterflies in my stomach when I see that girl.’
How you say that in English? Can you also use ‘butterflies in your stomach’?

A bad artist but a wonderful actor!The lesson is very interesting, but the story is crazy. Don’t listen this story befor having a lunch=)


Hey Jon! The story is good.I would like to make a request.If you don’t mind please make some lessons on phonics.I am really confused in that topic.
Some of my doubts are –
1)why ‘A’ sound in apple is different from ‘A’ sound in strange?How to find the exact sound in some new words? Are there any rules for those sounds?
2)In the same way with other alphabets like ‘O’,’C’,’I’,’E’,’G’,’Y’ and so on.
I found so much stuff in internet about this.But none explained me why? and the rules to follow them.Please make a lesson on this and that could be a great help to me.
