    akdexter

    Thanks

    me

hi!
by the way,I have got a question:have u got any tipps for writing a letter?please,if possible,make a video.
thanks!

apiramy

    do you teachers acualy read the comment and write sommthing back?for example ihave been wating 2 months for ranies answer.i was just wundering

    apiramy

      Sorry about that! We do read the comments and answer people’s questions when we can, but sometimes a question falls through the cracks. If you’d like to learn more about letter writing, these two lessons should help you get started.

      hi dude just for your success it is actually and wondering

      ljrequena10hernandez@gmail.com

Hi, James!
Fantastic, as usual.
I’d like to make you a request, I don’t know if it would be useful for anyother people…
I know you know some about Spanish, I’m Spanish and probably you’ll understand me and my trouble.
“Can you play the guitar?” Means “Have you the ability, are you able to, do you know how, to play the guitar”, I think.
Instead of that,
“Can I play the guitar?” Means “Do you give me permission for play the guitar?, Do you mind if I play the guitar?”, I think.
In Spanhis, we have “saber” and “poder”, and in English languaje it seems to be the same thing. How do you know when it refers to one thing or to the other?
Thanks!!!!!!

Hello James!

I can afford 1 hour every day, sometimes 2 hours and more when I have days off. I do listening and reading. I try to speak English to people from other countries almost every day. My certain goal is to find a job in Chicago, Illinois or Toronto, Ontario.

Nice video class, James.
As important as learning the language itself, there’s the non-stop reflection on these proposed questions. Thank you very much for bringing them up.

Dear james you should vanishes of this course because you is so bad teacher. I am not watch your class

crebio

    Are you stoned, crebio?
    I began to study seriously English several months ago. I found this site, and it has helped me a lot. The very best material I found in the Internet is here. These teachers, and specially James, teaches with common sense, which is the less common on the senses nowadays. I’ve seen and I’ve dowloaded all their 424 videos, and each and everyone is a special work. I don’t understand your comment… really not.

    ruben

      Hi Ruben
      I’m sure what it happens is that this guy Crebio isn’t a so good student. Have you noticed the elementary mistakes she commited in so short writing?

      Neusa

I like your English,i want to get a success in learning English.so please help me.

Bill Wang

Thank you James. When you wrote on the left down coner of the board, it was not visible. Look at it next time. Exuse me if I did mistakes and was rude.

ostap

Excellent James, like all your lessons.

What I need English for is mainly for understanding, i.e. reading and listening; reading English books which I like, internet magazines, listening radio programs, watching movies without subtitles. But, I would like to write more and maybe talk with English speakers in real circumstances. Who knows, maybe one day it will be possible.

This site is excellent not only for grammar, but also for listening skills and conversation. I noticed that I can better understand live, spoken English watching TV series, or movies thanks to some excellent lessons I found here.

This site really covers various important areas of English skills. Keep on that way. Thank you.

I´m enjoying a lot these videos, its a good chance to listen and improve knoledge!

Giuliano Pinto

nice jacket , why cant we have coffee together man .

primous

And where is mr. E?
Awesome lesson, as usual. Though, unfortunately you can’t devote a certain amount of time to learning every day :( We’re humans, we’re weak and lazy and learning is hard. I can’t make my little brother study English every day, I perfectly understand that he has so much to do with the school, friends, home stuff etc. At least he studies twice a week – not much but still… Even the small steps matter.

Cyprida

    Mr.E maybe on vacation now ,LOL

Hello, James, I’m Cris and I teach English in Brazil. I’ve just read your profile and discovered you taught martial arts to kids, just like I did, it was quite a pleasant surprise due to the approach to teach you make use of (very efficient, by the way). It’s been a pleasure to attend to your classes, and I’ve shown this particular video (Master English with these 5 questions!) to all my basic-to-advanced-students (specially those with a sort of lack of commitment to themselves and their lisguistic development)and I’d like to shortly share my experience in which I showed them the lesson and we went through the questions individually, but we changed a little its perspective. I mean, instead of “why do you want to study English?”, for example, we answered to “why do I want to study English?”. I just felt it gets more personal, and the commitment sounds stronger. Thank you very much for being such a talented person, may we have the opportunity to watch over 5000 of your videos, there’s always something new (and funny) to leran.

Crs B

Cheers from Nepal. :D , and thank you for your lessons, they are amazing!!

Your so funny James. You make me laughed while watching your video. You’re a good banter. Happy day to all.thanks James. Keep it up.

Andi Agustiawan

Thanks James. I’m w working out my english for about 1 hour a day by watching all engvid videos from all teachers that i’ve downloaded.

I wish we had national relations with all countries. I really hope so.

Mohsen Barati

Hi James!
You are one of the best teachers in the World!
I love your lessons, because you are sincere while you teach us ;) And you speak naturally! I like when other teacher speak clear and when you speak fast. Because in real life there are many people who speak fast like you.

shihai182

Good tips ..It’s required to know for which purpose we need learn to follow the required style, it’s good focus on all section listening, speaking , reading and writing. It’s better to know our weekness. Slang and pronunciation are important for advance learner. Keep remember speak slowly will make you comfortable while speaking. Daily practice is urgent.
