Hi, James!

I would like to thank you and your fellow teachers for sparing your time to make these great video lessons, they are very helpful and much more interesting than those boring textbooks I used to read when I was a student.

And I have a suggestion for your future (hope there will be more) lessons. Everyone knows your speech becomes more vivid if you use synonyms instead of repeating the same word all the time. Say, use the words “splendid, brilliant, marvellous, fantastic etc.” when talking about things one finds wonderful. The problem is, you can look them up in the dictionary and even write the synonyms down, but it’s difficult to remember them on-the-spot, when you are actually talking to someone. I believe that’s because you memorise them out of the context, so they just go into what we call “passive vocabulary”. So if you could make some lessons illustrating the situations where such words are used, that would be splendid-marvellous-fantastic :) I know your informal presentation and artistry make sure students remember the lesson properly :)

Here is a short list of other “often used and having lots of synonyms” words: like, dislike, good, bad, interesting, beautiful.

I am new here. :) you’re such a cool teacher. I’m a beginner, and used to think that English is not quite easy. But look, after I have watched your video I turn up that English is indeed a very nice place to be. :) thanks Mr. James,

I am looking forward to right some of my errors here in my comment.

God Bless.

Many many thanks James. really i was searching for a class abt phrasel verbs with “turn up, turn down..etc. if u don’t mind can u explainabout “turned off”. i’m very eagerly for waiting for listening the class abt the phrasel verb with turned off.
In adn. yr class is very simple to follow u and it’d be very useful and helpful for the students just like me.


    hello selo
    turn off simply means shut or switch off.ex: turn off your mobile.


i don’t understand why he said apple when he is talking about turn over.Could someone explainme this point? thanks

Very interesting explanation about phrasal verbs with “turn”, like “turn up”, “turn down”, “turn around” and “turn over” (up side down) but I don’t almost understand what is the relation between “turn over” and an apple, though I will inquire it. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid.
