passive-aggressivelanguage? In this lesson I talk you through examples of passive-aggressive communication, which happens when a person is angry but their anger is not directly expressed. You’ve probably experienced a situation in which someone tells you that everything is fine, even though that person is actually angry: this is an example of passive aggression. I’m not recommending that you communicate passive-aggressively! This lesson is designed for you to learn the different forms of passive-aggressive communication and typical phrases people use, so that you can improve your own communication and express your needs more directly. It will also help you to recognize when someone’s confusing behaviour towards you is being driven by passive aggression.
Great one! You always bring good subjects and tips in your lessons. Thanks Jade!
I fully agree.
Thank you great lesson.
Hi Jade, Don’t get me wrong but to wallow in self-pity is the wrong approach. Hard work never hurt anyone.
Greetings from Germany
Cool lesson, really enjoyed the lesson, liked the white humor, Congrats.
BTW: The comments about the Germans was out of place.
Oh i got 05 correct out of 07. Nice lesson jade. Thanks.

Thank you for your lesson and interesting lesson. It was so great lesson thanks jade!
Thanks Jade, this lesson was great…
I want to ask about “Not being rude , but do you EVEN lift , bro?” What does EVEN stand here for?
Do the asker say that lifting is simple and easy?
Something like “have you ever try”

Hi Jade, I like your videos a lot for being different, and interesting and I think you add value to learning English being more than English.
Some time ago, I wanted to suscribe to leave a comment and I procrastinated for several reasons, but what matters is that I have to say that bugging people egged me on to do it, so it has been worthy. And you did it so well at this video and so classy. My congratulations, you can be proud of yourself.
Thank Jade! Nice lesson.the examples are essential for everyday use.
Passive aggressive language is more usual than it seems and it’s an essential component of spoken speech. Thanks to enquire into that topic.
Great lesson Jade

Very good lesson.Many thanks.
Very interesting and educative lesson , and please continue like that,and if you allow me what really matters are the content in your lecture and the speciall way to transmit it. thanks.!.
Thanks Teacher Jade
Thank you. I really enjoy your lessons. That accent is amazing. I wish I could speak that way. Don´t pay attention to those comments, You are awesome.
Thank you Jade
This is a good way of learning knowing what other person is really telling you about by the way they answer a question. Thank you Jade
I guess that any kind of “softening” is already a warning for passive-aggressive behavior. Note how examples 13 to 17 follow the pattern “softening + but + criticism” (I once heard that nothing someone says before the word “but” really counts). Also, here’s another softening for the list: “just saying” (I feel like it’s often used sarcastically).
your English level is pretty gifted so you can teach us perfectly
I like you a lot
I believe that you are the funniest teacher in engvid.com
AMAZING LESSON JADE you are not only a good teacher but also a professional actress all the best for you
Really good lesson. Thanks jade
Brilliant lesson! So I might better stop talking if every other sentence seems to be aggressive in some way. Oops! (silent aggressive) I wondering what about Buddha.. Actually, I really hate the way he talks.. only joking. :)
Thanks for improving my passive aggressive toolkit, not being funny! ;)
Being ironic is aggressive? Or just being sarcastic mean to be aggressive?
Hello Jade, thanks for your lesson!
Using such “hot” topics is very useful, I think, because we can reflect on how interact in English in the real life, in common situations, and therefore how to be polite, and understand better people not only with the semantic meaning but with wider shades of the meaning, like “I am good” when really means maybe “I am angry but I don’t want to talk just now”!
7/7 i must be doing good
Thank you very much Jade. In my opinion you are great teacher. Good luck! Btw. I think that comments about your apperance are seamply rood and I can not understand that kind of behavior. People – Engvid is not Harpers Bazar or Fashion week. It is not place to comment apparince or cloths of out teachers…
Thanks a lot! It is a really good lesson. I’ve lived for 3 years in the Uk, but usually people don’t use PA language towards me. Way to say of a difference in opinions by English people is very wide. Can I ask a question?, is very often met.
I consider “Urg! Stop bothering me!” to be quite active aggression
