good stuff i really enjoyed listening to you
i would like to ask a question
how can i put shut in, in a sentence?


    u cn use ‘shut in’ in a sentence like “he’s been shut inside that room for more than a year.”
    it can be either shut inside or shut in.

Hey James! Don’t cry out!

Please, shut your piehole, otherwise I’ll shut off my computer. Besides that I need to shut down my home work ASAP. I hope to do it before the company shut off the eletricity.

Thank you guy…It’s very useful!

    that s a good practice,u have learnt too fast


    it’ll be “shut down” my computer; u dont use that after besides(in that perticular sentence)
    u’ll say i need to finish my homework, cuz u cant use the verb”shut” with homework n it’ll be ” before the company “”cuts off”” the electricity”

    PS- n its not a company tht manages the electicity stuff.

Hello James, The videos you made clear my five-year-confusion on grammar problems.

I have a couple questions on MOVIE DIALOGUE grammar (colloquial talk)
In the movie ‘THE DARK KNIGHT”

In a scene, Joker said: “If tomorrow I tell the press that, like, a gangbanger will get shot,
or a truck load of soldiers will be blowing up, they will lose their mind.

– Q – why he used “a truck load of soldiers will be blowing up” INSTEAD of “A truck load of soldiers WILL BE BLOWN UP?”
(since the second one is grammatically correct, why he used the first one instead? Is there any explanation on how American colloquial talk function?)

In a scene when Joker was finally caught & locked up in cell, Mayor tells Gordon (the man who catches Joker) to go home.

Mayor (to Gordon): “Go home. The Clown will keep till morning.”

Q – Why the mayor didn’t use the passive tense instead (the clown will be kept till morning.)?

These two questions have been gnawed at me for months now, any ideas?

Thank you, K


I got 100 in the quiz , yeah!!
thank you so much Teacher James , you are the man , I like your other lectures also.


great lesson James!

You are a cool teacher and very funny indeed!I can understand you perfectly well! It is rather difficult and sometimes boring to study phrasal verbs by heart, but by watching your videos is much easier to remember them! so, thank you!

Hi James, I love your videos but my cat doesn’t… She was used sleeping near my computer but because of all your sound effects, she’s now too scary to come closer… It seems that animals (cat, earthworm…) don’t appreciate your talent!

Doubts with “shut up” and “shut out”. “Shut up” means don’t speak or stop talking, and “shut out” means don’t reach your goals of sport or don’t allow to do something. By the way, “shut down” means stop a process or computer and “shut off” stop the flow of electricity or water, but the context sometimes mayde confused for me like in the third question of the quiz. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid for your explanation.
