hello james
i am Beginner student and i need help about tense
when i was learning present simple tense i saw this sentence:(Windows are made of glass)
now : is this sentence present simple ??
and If these present simple sentence why we used (are)
With thanks

abdulllah

    hello, Abdullah. That sentence is passive.
    Simple present transfer to S + am/is/are + Pp.
    Windows are made of glass. meaning who make it, we don’t know or we don’t care.

    arielk

hi James
I’m gonna thank you for the helpful usage.

But don’t you think you’re speaking too fast, I wanna understand what you’re saying, can you break off for few second in order to we get it.
Maybe you could slow down in next video

anyway , thank you for teaching us !! XD

just8574322589

great work james…………
but i dont know where to use ‘go’. for example: when i see u i go crazy. and i wanna go home.
in above cases go gives different meaning

rajatrique

    they dont have different meanings in these cases which you showed..
    i go crazy, it means i go from my mind when i see you, probably, i lose my mind, i forget everything.. you can catch it

    fakhranda

fernandojrbr

thanks actually this is a little bit difficult lesson and it isnt clear for me so much but i think it is ok

aduinterpreter

Hi, I have a question about “focused”.
I have learnt with my English that I should always say ” I’m focused on sth or on doing sth. But today I saw someone writing focused in/at, like in the phrase:
I wasn’t focused in/at work today. Then, I asked that person If it shouldn’t be ” I wasn’t focused on my work today and she said that I could use in or at in this case and it would be right. I would like to know If she is right and that I really can use “focused ” this way.

rakellpf

I have learnt from my English teacher, pleeease. lol

rakellpf

I’ve got 8 out of 10 without watching the video .

gpio8080

Thank u James, ur lessons and teaching style are very good and different, i appreciate u, but i have a request, if u can, please, speak slowly for catching what u are explaing..thanks again

fakhranda

i got 9 out of 10, thanks a lot.

rahmad1

I got 9 correct out of 10..it is ok..
Anyway i had a mistake on the 10 th question, i was confused between “contract out” and “sold out” and eventually chose wrong one”sold out”.:((
who can explain me exactly what it means “contract out”. i think both of them are available..

Canada and the United States have ____________ a lot of their manufacturing to China.
figured out
contracted out
bailed out
sold out

fakhranda

    Hi Fakhranda, try to figure this out…

    “contract out”: verb > To engage a person outside an organization by contract to undertake or produce.

    “Manufacturing”: noun >
    1.
    a. The act, craft, or process of manufacturing products, especially on a large scale.
    b. An industry in which mechanical power and machinery are employed.
    2. The making or producing of something.

    You cannot sell your manufacturing out, they are not your products, they will produce them.

    Hope you have understood…

    thalinho

      hi, Thalinho..thank u for explanation..
      sell out – to sell cheaper ? what is exactly meaning ?

      fakhranda

        “sell off”
        1. To get rid of something by selling, often at reduced prices.

        2. To put all of one’s goods or possessions up for sale.

        3. (Slang) To betray one’s cause or colleagues: He sold out to the other side.

        See ya around

        thalinho

        sell out mains the selling of entire stock of something. i knew it because i was mistake to that so i researched.

        saaduddin

i pointed out i did not understand when, we use roll out.

hadji33

kogura

julvas

teranesafarova

Omg. I could only dream about the such cool explanation :D
I couldn’t imagine what I would do without you with those nightmares, namely Phrasal Verbs. Thank you!

That’s great

rahaf11

Terrific!!

beabusy

I don`n understand number 6 question.
I choose “burned out” but it`s not correct.
The answer is “sold out”.

Is there anyone who can explain to me??

6. I feel like I __________ because I gave up what I believed in for money.
bailed out
sold out
burned out
figured out

megadolx

    That makes sense…

    He sold himself out because he’s given what he’d believed in for money…

    I wonder if it would help you out, rs.

    thalinho

      still confused 。。。

      ccnumable

    That makes sense…
    He sold himself out because he’s given up* what he’d believed in for money…
    I wonder if it would help you out, rs.

    Sorry for the typo…

    thalinho

What does ‘sell out’ mean in this sentence: I feel like I sold out because I gave up what I believed in for money.

meryl

    I think it means something like “you sold your ideas for money”. For example you believe in something but you do another, sometimes opposite, things only for money.

    iro23

      Thank you. Good explanation!

genivaldo76

Hi, James!

Personally, I feel like your English speech and style of teaching and pronunciation as well are a quite
hardly to get in contrary to the others teachers.

It seems like you don’t like to do what you do and it’s like you wish to finish your lesson ASAP. :)

Perhaps you you’d like to be kinda of Project Leader or something but you cannot because you are a choleric person yourself.

And… the worm you are painting to us… should be some serious reasons to do it… I assume you have to visit some psychiatrist and work on to fix it, man.

I just want to be honest with you, you need psychiatrist help.

dboyko

thanks James
I appreciate your effort

lamle

Hi, sorry if my english is not good
In relation about why some people get angry when some people called America to USA. is because for the rest of us who live in this continent and we are part of the same, ( Brazil, Mexico, Belice, Honduras , Argentina, etc, etc,) sometimes is funny or sad how the people does not know the difference, America is not U.S.A and when you talk about americans you are talking about all this citizens of this countries, because America is a continent not a country( U.S.A). About your lessons you are the best

muralidharp

What a helpful and enjoyable lesson as always, James! Thanks a lot.
I’m a native jp speaker and I think what you meant by “koroshi” would be “shinda(died)” or “shinderu(being dead.)” “Koroshi” is a noun meaning “murder,” which is a slang detectives use… whatever. Did you learn the word from Death Note or something? haha
