James, thank you for the lesson! Such confusing words, especially the adjectives. But thank you for the explanation!

A wonderful site! Came across it accidentally in the net and just loved it. You guys are doing a great job. Thanks a lot!

On more note on the lesson. The word snob actually has 2 adjective forms: snobby (the one that James mentioned) and snobbish. They are all the same, just different forms.Don’t consider my comment too snobbish… or snobby…))

    of course! there are a lot of people who didn’t know about snobby/snobbish. I didn’t know they have the same meaning. I knew only snobbish before, now i know both. Thank you.

Hi, your explanations for the words are interesting. I have a question. Is “cocky” the same as “vain”?

Profile photo of hiromiduki hiromiduki

    Well, I’m not the James, but I’m pretty sure it’s not the same thing though they are a bit alike. Cocky is quite informal. It’s more close to ”arrogant” I think.

    ”Don’t get cocky… One won game doesn’t mean anything” <== A perfect example of how it could be used in a sentence.

    Also, great avatar! :D

Hello James,
great lesson once again…I’m looking forward to the next one!
May I ask you a question? It is not really on (about?) the subject of this lesson but it is something that I came across while I was doing the quiz:
I don’t understand the structure of this question:
“Which verb is means… etc…etc..” (Why “is means” and not “means” OR does “means” in this case mean something different?). Thank you.

    Same thing here. But it is most likely an error.

Miranda

I also believe that many people sometimes had been arrogant, snob,brag, conceit while they were living their life but they also learned a lesson at the end of the road:)

Miranda

Thank you very much for your lesson. I really enjoyed your teaching style. The lesson was clear, entertaining and humourus. I will always remember your teaching.Please,keep up this masterpiece of a work.

Great lesson, James. I’d like to say that these etymology features like “sans nobilite” or the ones in your Word Pyramid series which shed light on the English word-building are very helpful. Keep up the good teaching :)

Rodrigo Honorato

very good lesson. I understood almost all lesson but not all maybe because you talk pretty fast or maybe because I’m learning recently.

Hi James, I love your explanation about the origin of the word “snob”! But tell me, did you meet someone in particular who inspired you this lesson ?!

It seems he was talking about Maradona and all his characteristics… ;-)

Profile photo of regis246 regis246

    Really?Why are you said that?

    Profile photo of jumat jumat

      Hi!! I said that because all those characteristics belong to him. I don’t deny he WAS an excellent football player, but as a person, a human being, he is not the best model to follow. Unfortunately here in Argentina, many people seem to adore him.

      Regina

You really have a way with words, Mr. James. You can simply make people understand complex & confusing words and showing their relations to each other.
Your subtle humors keep us attentive to the lesson and prevent mind wanderings (hehe..I often do that during my school days).
So, I guess, by getting compliments from your viewers, I hope you will not turn out to becoming a vain person and display arrogance and bragging to people about your good ability to the point of becoming a snob.
How’s that? (hehe..)
Do you think I learned something?

Thanks for the lesson. Remain an awesome teacher that you are.

Thank you, James, for that wonderful lessons! Love it!

Kristina

hi!I have a question.
Is “vain” similar to “lame” too?
How common is that to use “vain” instead of “lame”?
can you also help me with the usage of “as in”?
many thanks!

grace

Hi.

I have a question.

If someone is not handsome in real, and he humorously says or tells people ” Hey, i think I’m pretty handsome “.

So, what could be d best word to describe this person; vain@conceited or should i just say: ” you’re saying ridiculous ” instead??

For those who know the answer, you are very much welcome to comment.
10Q in advance.

Love,
Malaysian

James, I mostly understand all your lessons, sometimes your speak a little bit fast, or include some slung, which I like. I was wondering if all the teachers could include a transcription of their videos.
You are doing a great job.

Thank you to your lesson I really like it.

It’s clear than vanity summarises all other characteristics in a negative sense like snobbishness but I didn’t think so, then I failed this question, now I have to listen again the lesson to learn better these concepts. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from Engvid, it was an interesting lesson.
