    want to share my language with nguyenluan

    Thursday, April 24th 2014

EngVid, I need a lesson about differences between ‘Breast’ and ‘Chest’.
I human body, in chicken, and so on. I don’t know when I have to use which one…
So please Ronnie or Valen teach it. thanks a lot.

Thursday, April 18th 2013

Thank you!

Thursday, April 18th 2013

I’m sorry! I have a question… You have these question in the quiz:
After Valen stole the cookies, police cordoned off the area, so that nobody could get in or out.
Do we need to use past perfect in the first part of these sentence or not?
After Valen had stolen the cookies……

Thursday, April 18th 2013

    They aren’t interested in the rules in North America, are they?

    Friday, April 19th 2013

    In this case there’s proper order of events. First Valen stole. Then police cordoned off the area.

    For example:
    Police cordoned off the area, so that nobody could get in or out after Valen had stolen the cookies.

    This case We need to emphosize (by PAST PERFECT) reverse order of events in the sentence.

    Tuesday, September 1st 2015

great lesson James… could you explain to me when to use by and for, or the diference between them?… thank you

Thursday, April 18th 2013

Friday, June 28th 2013

James, you all work in a dangerous area. I hear in almost every video police- or ambulance alarm. Hopefully you live in a quieter territory and can mentally get off it.

Thursday, July 4th 2013

8 of 10
great quiz….. thanks

Thursday, July 11th 2013

What I can say! you pulled this off, thanks James. But I have some comments please, when I was looking for word “round” in Cambridge Dic, I got shocked !!! how much this word has been used.
please share me your opinion about these sentence:
“He used a special machine to round off the corners of the old table”. this was for smoothing, OK.
“To round off her education, her father sent her to a Swiss finishing school”. this was for completing a task successfully. Can you imagine it never mentions the meaning you had explained???
Another note about “write off”, this time they have mentioned this meaning , but in addition they elaborate, (1) override a debt, (2) massive damage. I hope that I haven’t digressed far, but it is essential for me to know your opinion , my great teacher.

Friday, August 2nd 2013

thanks, you are great

Wednesday, August 20th 2014

There aren’t exercises for “set off”, “piss off”, “fence off” and “write off”. “Fence off” is a synonym for “cordon off”, isn’t it?

Wednesday, August 27th 2014

Thank you. I like this lesson. It is a very useful lesson for me.

Saturday, August 30th 2014

Hey people, I’m living with three Canadian roomates (two of whom are frat boys), and one of them usually say “I’m taking off now” when he is about to leave. Is it a proper way to say you want to go? Because in the language I learned before it can only be applied to the departure of planes. Help?

Thursday, September 18th 2014

And there is another thing: I always hear people in Canada say somebody is so “pissed” instead of somebody is so “pissed off”. And another guy said “ditching your friend is so pissed off”.

My question is do pissed and pissed mean the same thing?
Can we say something which is annoying is “pissed off”?


Thursday, September 18th 2014

U r the funniest and the best teacher ever, James :)

Sunday, February 26th 2017

You are a great teacher, James! I have a question, though because I´m a little confused. It is correct to say this both ways or just one of them is correct?: “To write someone off” “To write off someone”

Thursday, March 23rd 2017

Thanks a lot james.

Monday, April 24th 2017

To be honest, this topic of the phrasal verbs is one of the most difficult questions we have to afford with because the meaning is so different when you add the particle besides you can be very confused with the real concept of the word if you don’t have a right idea about the phrasal verb you are using at the moment. Anyway, thanks a lot, teacher James, a difficult but interesting lesson to learn as always.

Tuesday, May 23rd 2017

how are you

Monday, December 25th 2017

I can’t belive how fast I’ve learned this phrasal verbs, by only one watching to Jameses video. I’m fascinated! Thank you James 🙄🙄
