i have some doubts about “would”
In Americal spoken english the word “would” uses everywhere.
i know the habbitual actions but would uses in many conversations….
i think it has several meainings. So Can you explain where we use would while we speaking to others.

    I am so glad hearing this questions because of good questions. ı have same trouble using would.

    Thursday, September 10th 2009

    We use would when we offer something to someone. For example: Would you like some tea? We use would in conditional clauses, and also for past habbits. Example: When I was a child, I would eat lots of cake and so forth.
    Try to find usage of would online. Take care.

Hello James,

Thank you so much for your English video lessons, I have really learned from them, you are a great teacher.
If it is possible, I would like to know more about the verb to be. I know it is the basic verb, but it has a great variety of using, for example in the sentence: ‘We are to preach the Gospel’ I suspect it has the meaning of ‘have’ ‘ought’ and so forth.
Thanks again,

Hi James,
It has been very good to see all your videos. I learned many things. Thanks very much for you and your team.

I have some doubts with respect to this video.
In your explanation for three of the Idioms viz. “Pulling someone’s leg”,”Pulling a fast one” and “Pulled the wool over his eyes” you have mentioned it as either joking or tricking. But I haven’t understood the clear difference between three of these. Can you please elaborate more with exact differences or is it all the same.

Once again thanks a lot.

Many people use, “BY THE WAY” after saying something. What does it mean by “BY THE WAY” and how to use it?

Tuesday, January 25th 2011

    “By the way” means that you want to say something in addition. Example: Happy birthday honey, here is your present! By the way, your aunt said hello to you! Hope you understand :)

When you teach you should give phrases as example like Alex and Rebec did and not behaving like a clown trying to act something. Think about it!

Monday, July 23rd 2012

tnx James!!

Monday, July 23rd 2012

Very useful, thank you.
However, these are not phrasal verbs, the expressions in the lesson are idioms.

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

    It looks like you are right about this lesson not being about phrasal verbs and you taught me something new.
    The word “idiom” is also used to refer to figurative meaning expressions.
    Спасибо большое мадам.

    Friday, October 5th 2012

Hello !!
First of all thanks for this very nice lesson. As usual, it was very rewarding. I would like however to ask, if it’s not already in Engvid’s (I’m going to search it after posting this), for a lesson in which we learn the difference between full & fool, pull & pool, bull & bool, etc …
Good luck.

Friday, October 5th 2012

Awsome lesson James, thanks a lot

Tuesday, January 1st 2013

thanks I m learning it feels great

Monday, February 4th 2013

Hey, can you tell me the meaning of “To pull an all nighter” please?

Tuesday, November 12th 2013 are helpful teacher.

Thursday, January 2nd 2014

Mr James I enjoyed your lessons. However, phrasal verbs are verbs made up of a verb+preposition such as Pull away; Pull out; Pull back; Pull together; Pull over; Pull oneself together; Pull in; Pull on and there are many more.
When I read the title of your lesson I thought you were going to go over the meaning of the above mentioned.
You just mentioned idiomatic expressions with the verb pull and you also forgot to prepare a quiz for us. The title of the lesson is missleading.

On the whole I appreciate the effort you guys are doing for free and I’ve learnt a lot from you. Million thanks

Saturday, February 8th 2014

Thank you very much . I got much education from you

Wednesday, June 18th 2014

Hi everyone, can you help I have Q??

Monday, November 3rd 2014

    what is it

    Wednesday, June 27th 2018

Dear James, could you please make a couple of lessons on “down” and “over” with most useful meanings? Tnanx

Saturday, September 5th 2015

Thank you so much, you are great.

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

Phrasal Verbs and English Idioms mixed with the verb “pull”, it was an interesting lesson about how to use this verb and their three meanings. A little difficult to remember all the idioms but when we see them again we will have more acknowledge about them. Thans a lot teacher James for the explanation. A good performance.

Tuesday, November 29th 2016

Hey, then. Thank you for your lesson! I “adore” phrasal verbes, but your lesson made me laugh. You have pulled the rug out of me)))
