My name is Marco, I have 29 years old of age, and I live in São Paulo City, Brazil.

I have watched your videos on youtube, my english is not good, but I´m learning with north-americans friends that live here in Brazil.

Your videos are fantastic!!!!

You are a excellent teacher!!!

Thanks a lot!!!

hi.good english with the best presentation

Saturday, February 20th 2010

    hahaha….thanks… for your support!

Rude examples. There should be a warning “18” or smth.

Saturday, February 20th 2010

    I think it is just realistic. Why pretend?

    Tuesday, February 23rd 2010

      …All through my wild days
      My mad existence…
      really nice song.

      examples were great. it’s easier to memories and it’s more intresting because it’s unusual, though everybody are thinking about this so why don’t talk about it? can’t get it. anyway. here’s my question: why you didn’t put the apostrophe “‘s” when you wrote “i like to keep up with the WORLD EVENTS” why don’t need “s” after word “world”. because i’m thinking like this. events kind of belongs to the world so, it should be used “s”. isn’t it so? thank you for the answer.

      Thursday, March 4th 2010

        I personally don’t see or hear anything rude or offensive in this vid at all. The examples are just normal pep talk you hear everyday. One of the things that makes James stand out from most other teachers is his humor after all. Keep up your good work, Jimmy!

        Regarding the “world events”, it’s not intended to mean events that belong to the world or any sense of possession as you said. In other words, a wine event isn’t an event that belongs to wine. Rather, it is an event that has something to do with wine. So, the world events are events related one way or another to the world.

          Calm down guys, you must learn that everybody of us has their own angle from which they observe different things. So, don’t pay attention at all. You think this is great, I think also, but third peson maybe will not like it, and so on.

          Friday, December 16th 2011

          I’ve just realized how smart I am :) Proud of myself :D

          Friday, December 16th 2011

      that’s true :D

      Wednesday, August 17th 2011

      oh,yes. In my country, when say about this,everyone feels embarrassed

      Saturday, August 20th 2011

      There is a idiom in our language. It is that Every right thing should not to be said in everywhere. I hope you understand me.

      Friday, September 23rd 2011

    There was a warning after Lol

    Saturday, December 11th 2010

      Sunday, September 11th 2011

yeah. good lesson. so funny. I love it

Monday, March 1st 2010

Thanks for explanations … very useful and easy to understand.

Could u give us more details and examples of phrasal verbs (with prepositions down, up, about, back for instance) ???
……. cause I think it’s not really easy to understand (first) and to use (second point ahaha) because of different meanings a unique phrasal verb can have .

Sorry if I’ve made mistakes…
I think that you’re an excellent teacher !!!!

Monday, March 1st 2010

Hi James,

I just wanted to thank you for these lessons. I’ve recently started teaching ESL to adults on a volunteer basis. The organization has given me a curriculum and I’m good with grammar, but I’ve had no specific ESL training. I’m finding your teaching style to be an excellent example as I begin to develop my own. Thank you!


Monday, March 1st 2010

I think that every one should to buy a phrasal verbs dictionary

Wednesday, March 10th 2010

    yes raheem undoubtdley every learner of english need to a phrasal verbs dictionary.

    you right.

I was terribly disappointed in this video. I have used this video service to teach a variety of lessons in my class. Not anymore. James if you believe that you have to use sex as an example to teach a lesson about verbs then shame on you. I have told my faculty to no longer use this service which they will abide by. What a waste.

Tuesday, March 30th 2010

    Sorry to hear you won’t be using our site anymore. I am not sure what the problem is exactly, though. The website was not created for young children, and is not labeled or branded as such. If you are using the lessons in class, you surely must watch them at least once first anyway, to make sure they cover the topics you want to teach in the ways you want to teach them, correct? So when you watch the lesson, you would see whatever content you don’t wish your students to see — before they see it — and would know not to use that particular lesson in class.

    In general, our teachers each use whatever content and approach they like. Rebecca, Alex, and Valen tend to use more wholesome examples, and James and Ronnie sometimes are a bit more risque.

    Finally, James does not think he has to use sex as an example — he just chose to. If this is something you personally find objectionable, then it is just that — your own personal taste. The internet is vast and there are many kid-friendly lessons on this website and on others.

    Tuesday, March 30th 2010

      james is not tich us any more? its sad news. i loved his inglish lessons he is great teacher

      Saturday, November 20th 2010

        Don’t worry — James is definitely still teaching!

        Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

          James James James lol I love his classes and Ronnie´s too the best website to learn english

          Tuesday, May 3rd 2011

          oh yeeeeeeees it is true, I watch EngVid every day! adn I hope I’ll improve my English.

          Saturday, July 23rd 2011

          me too^^

          Saturday, August 20th 2011

          I agree!
          These guys are amazing!
          EngVid is in my good books.

          Tuesday, May 14th 2013

      I definitely Agree!! James is a good teacher, ans look’s like a good person! Thanks for share your knowlodge! Please, keep going!!!

      “The english teacher” user, WELCOME TO REAL LIFE, i dont know where you are living!!!!!!!!

      Wednesday, January 5th 2011

      Wow, great text. You are completely right about what you said! I hate when someone is pretending that sex is strange for them, that’s natural as well as anything else. Tell James to use whatever is necessary to explain us well. Keep up your great work.

      Friday, December 16th 2011

    mmm…funny u cooment that…i’m not a pervert to make it clear and i am a teacher …so i know from experience that when u use examples as such in a fun way not meaning to offend anyone , students get u smoothly , James has the right personality type to teach in that fun way…moreover we as teacher should prepare our classes in advance and choose whatever best works 4 us…obviously u won’t wanna use tose examples in a class jampacked with children. BTW, do not check out then 2vids of jame’s called batman and batman part 2. or else, u will get offended.

    Saturday, August 28th 2010

    Haha, Are you kidding? Englsih Teacher???? If you are english teacher and own your class, why don’t u teach on your way not from engvid? Engvid is also have their own copyright and share information with worldwide people who are interested in English. Shame on you teacher, I think you have to study hard to teach them not using free lesson site.

    Wednesday, October 27th 2010

      We definitely encourage English teachers to make use of our lessons. It’s not a problem. Thanks for looking out for us, Sou, but please try not to insult other users.

      Monday, November 29th 2010

    “I have told my faculty to no longer use this service” — you little ungrateful piece of ****! Have you ever been PAYING at all? The teachers on this website have been working their proverbial butts off to provide both students and teachers with the most amazing language-learning experience, without you and I ever having to pay ANYTHING for it – and then you come and SHAMELESSLY state that you and your whole bloody FACULTY have been (ab)using this website as a primary teaching resource, and now will no longer use it as one of the videos on it collides with your (rather questionable) ‘ethical’ standards?

    Simply put, people like you make me sad – and I ONLY get the most POSITIVE energies whenever I’m on this wonderful, one-of-a-kind website.

    Alex, Emma, James, Jon, Rebecca, Ronnie, Valen – thank you all so much for your amazing effort…

Friday, May 21st 2010

Hi! professor James , thank u very much for your lessons. I like your language , your speed which is very important for learners of English. We need fluency more than accuracy, so don’t care for those who criticize your speed . Since the more they listen , the better they will understand. As for the content , we will have to talk about anything in English since it is a new language . If you are in a situation talking about religious, political , financial or sexual things , you will need the right language to express the situation
Thank you very much . I appreciate all what do and present . I am a teacher of English.

Saturday, May 22nd 2010

Wednesday, June 2nd 2010

i’ve one more questiom..most of the time we know the meaning of verb and preposition in the phrasal verbs but still we are unable to find the right meaning of the the only way to solve this problem to learn all the phrasal as you can? is it so? how do you done that?

Wednesday, June 2nd 2010

    Hai James,
    I’m from India.I do have the same doubt.Please do let us know Should we learn all Phrasal Verbs to communicate easily or to understand easily?

    Sunday, October 10th 2010

hi James,I was watching your video and I think that this was interesting the use of phrasal verbs,sometimes when I am reading phrasal verbs in the newspaper is difficult for me to understand some of them.I would like you could explain the use of get off for instance.

thanks you!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, June 2nd 2010

What a bravo explanation of phrasal verbs! I’ve been confused by the word “up” for ages.
Your video cleared up my mind a bit. I couldnt thank you enough for that.

Keep up your excellent work! And, I love your way to make videos 2 ^^.

Thursday, July 15th 2010

Hi James,

I was wondering if you could do videos about “do”, “have” and “take”. These words are very common in daily English, but, there are tonnes of possible meanings of them. So, It would be great if you could tell all ESL students including me how to master these monsters.

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Saturday, November 20th 2010

maintain not maintian… lol!

Saturday, November 27th 2010

Thank you for giving lessons. I’ve seen this website a while ago, since then I’m enjoying the lessons whenever I have some time. By the way,I have a question for you. In the phrasal verb, some Phrasal verbs combine prepositions, others combine adverbs. For example, “pick up, keep up, give up, put on, turn on….” they can be separated: I’ll pick you up at 7p.m., Turn it off when you leave…. I thought they are adverbs. On the other hand, in Phrasal verbs “look at, look for, look forwards to” at, for, to are prepositions. They can’t be separated. Am I wrong? I’m cofused after your lesson. Please let me figure it out.

Sunday, November 28th 2010

Just a little something. You may want to correct the spelling of the word “maintain”

Monday, November 29th 2010

Love this Thank you so much!

Monday, December 6th 2010

This lessons are amazing!!! even if I know vocabulary, I am still watching them because they are very intersting and funny.
Thank you for your lessons James :) and keep up with your work. haha
Good luck.

Saturday, December 11th 2010

I’m a student from Mali,the country where english language is rarely spoken,i’m thinking of improving my english language, but phrasal verbs are difficult for me to identify the meaning.what can i do to remember them?

Wednesday, December 15th 2010

James, thank you very much for being simply the best teacher. I laugh a lot at home while learning English. It is rare to find such a good teacher. EngVid please continue teaching the fun way. By the way, I did not see any thing offensive in this lesson. It is fabulous!

Monday, December 27th 2010

Wednesday, February 2nd 2011

Hi, James!

I’m an English teacher in Brazil and I’ve really enjoyed the explanation. The examples made me laugh. I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to use some of them in class, though they are certainly unforgettable. =) Thank you for making your videos accessible.

Friday, February 4th 2011

Teacher James, Thanks for your class . Your style is great and useful for me. Thanks to you I have could improve my English. All the best to you.

Tuesday, February 22nd 2011

Hi i think that for beginners and intermediates he is talking to fast during his teaching times because some peoples may not have that kind of experience to understand very well his speech and explanations. so its better to speak more slowly with more clear pronunciation. thank you !

Saturday, February 26th 2011

Dear :) James,
I hope this finds you well.

First, I would like to thank you as well as the rest of the teachers of English for all you do to help us be more confident with the all the English Skills you offer us on regular basis.

I would like to know if it is advisable to use “idioms” in academic writings such as the “written part” of the “TOEFL test” … ??

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind Regards,


Thursday, March 10th 2011

It’s been really hard to follow you, to understand you, teacher James.

May I suggest you something? Slow down a little bit, if you can, of course…

I’ve been listening to your programmes for a long time. Really nice, easy to get them! I’m recommending this works to my mates.
Well, can I ask you a question?

Well… I can’t seem to get phrasal verbs, speaking in more detail, I’m Japanese and Japanese language doesn’t have idioms like ‘phrasal verbs’ because of fundamentally grammatical differences. That’s how I can’t guess meanings of the combination of ‘verb + preposition’.

I mean, for example, here is ‘speak’:
speak of sth = indicating sth
speak to sb = talking to sb in a sever way
* I want to say ‘Why does the meaning as ‘phrasal verbs’ makes differently despite of changing prepositions. What is the difference of the meanings of ‘to’ and ‘of’?’
(but) talk to sb = talking to sb in a normal way
* I want to say, ‘Despite using the same preposition ‘to’ though, how come the meaning could be differenct?’

How can I get used to such that usage?
Using in our conversation and memorizing how and when to be used, is that shortcut to master?

If I’m confusing you, would you text me back?

Many thanks James i checked some videos of your grammar teaching it’s really useful for me. i am graduated from intermediate level English classes but i am still confused and don’t know about some grammar chapter such as the clear meaning of gerund, the past participle when they are using as an adjective and the present participle… i am just confused regarding the difference of their meaning. could you clarify their meaning to me.
Many thanks
I am looking for ward to hear you soon from you.

Good class, however we know that exists many different phrasal verbs, it’s important you create another class with many other examples of them, don’t you think? There are so many to memorize. Thanks.

Thank you James, it was really good lesson.

Wednesday, September 17th 2014

You are very good teacher, it is very difficult to understand such rapid speech, can’t you speak more slowly?

Wednesday, October 29th 2014

Hi mr James my name is Nickolas Nembhard

Friday, September 18th 2015

HI James,

I really like your explanation and how we could handle those phrasal verbs
Thank so much.

Wednesday, September 30th 2015

Good one. Thank you.

Wednesday, October 7th 2015

well, i have a question about “alot” and “a lot” which is correct? like “thanks alot” or “thanks a lot”

Monday, January 25th 2016

thanks James, this is a good explanation about phrasal verbs, sometimes this is driving me crazy ¨just kidding¨ but let me tell you, I haven’t heard all this information, for me it is helpful keep it up.

Post Data: I didn’t know you speak spanish.

Sunday, July 3rd 2016

Keeping up my interest in learning English with this lesson, but maybe very hard work to study Phrasal Verbs with more than one meaning because you have to afford a lot of situations and examples to find out everyone of them. Thanks a lot teacher James from Engvid, as always a good explanation and performance.

Friday, December 23rd 2016

thank you very much.

Monday, December 26th 2016

James,you are the best!Thank you
