James, when are you going to hold the lesson on SEAM Modals Part 4? If I’m not wrong you left that part out…

Sunday, April 15th 2012

    There are only 3 lessons about the SEAM method, jingler.

But isn’t SEAM a 4 letters achronim? E stands for “Express PAN”, A stands for “Ask for a PASS”, S stands for “State POP”. And what about “M”??

Wednesday, October 19th 2016

I wish this quiz was a bit more difficult. May I ask you to add a dozen of tricky questions into it?

Wednesday, December 28th 2016

Thank you very much for explaining the register in can, may, could usages.

Wednesday, December 28th 2016

Permission would be with “can”, “may” and “could”, and assistance would be with “can”, “could” and “would”, but sometimes they depend on the form of the question you have to build. Thanks a lot, teacher James from EngVid, I will have to study a little more to distinguish permission and assistance.

Tuesday, February 21st 2017

You should explain what you mean water
