And I’d like to add that this speaker is a very nice and handsome man)) It would be great if you invite me to visit your lessons in real life))

I am homeschooling my kids and have been totally at a loss regarding phrases and clauses. You are the only person to have ever made sense of this and I applaud you!!! Thanks a million!


you said a phrase has a verb or a noun and you showed some phrasal verbs, but what about “turn on the volume”? it has a verb & a noun (volume) . You wrote “pick it up”, well in this case “pick” is a verb and “it” is a subject noun, so it’s also a noun.
And you said a clause has a verb and a noun.
So please, could you tell me if the two examples I gave you are phrases or clauses?


This is very nice James.

Hi James,
I’m from Haiti and I’ve been studying English for years but I’ve never had the chance to have such a good teacher. And for the most part I was alone in my studies. Now you’re my online friend and teacher. I will have to take toefl and SAT very soon and would like to find more stuff on toefl ibt and SAT on this website.
Keep doing it! As everybody is saying; you’re a very talented and funny teacher, your lessons are amusing! That’s the most effective way to learn.

Dear Mr.James.
Your lessons are very useful and had saved me a lot of time.
Could you upload videos on noun phrases, adjective phrases, adverb phrases, prepositional phrases, infinitive phrases, participial phrases, adverbial phrases, and adjectival phrases. I’m prone to interactive learning and your lessons are excellent for me to understand. Can any of you(all of you are good!) help me with all these please?I’m having an exam pretty soon.Please respond to me as soon as possible.Thanks in advance!



sir pls provide the 3gp formats to download it will be really helpful for us

Hi James.

I just wonder about the sentence you said “I ate dinner”
Can we use the word “eat” with breakfast,launch and dinner”?

Because my English teacher teach me that we only can use “have” with breakfast,launch and dinner.

We say “eat” with the food.
Ex. I eat pizza.

Could you please explain for me?

    nice comment bro.


      i agree with you raihan

      Profile photo of talha2005 talha2005

    Hello friend,
    Good query ..
    What James said, is right.What your teacher told to you,is also right.
    Explanation:I ate dinner and i had dinner both are right.
    Certain verbs like eat,enjoy,experience,drink and take can be replaced by have.
    Means you can also use have instead of these verbs.
    I’m drinking coffee / I’m having coffee
    I took lunch / I had lunch
    Hopefully, i’ll help you.

Mr.James ❤
I watched your lessons over 90 and made notebook for my memory.
Your teaching saved me from the wall that I couldn’t come up by myself.
I can’t thank you enough and you made me kind of crazy because I laugh alone while I am watching your lessons.
Mr,E is the best suporter for you and he is cute(the neautral ^ ^)
I think you are popular from your students.
The party(yours 100) was not so enjoyable but it was funny.
I wish you keep on teaching everywhere.

Hello Mr. James!!!

You are the best teacher I have ever seen.
Can explain difference between Gerund&Infinitive. I’m suffering to choose one of them. It is very confusable for me. For instance,

The models practiced (walking/to walk) with a book balanced on their heads.

Mandy has promised (takin/to take) care of our dog while we are on vacation…
Please, help me

Then, a sentence may be divided in a “phrase” (with a noun or with a verb but not mixed) and a “clause” (with a noun as a subject and a verb as a meaning), therefore a phrase and a clause are different but they are parts of a sentence. Furthermore, a clause may be also divided in Independent Clauses and Dependent Clauses separated by comas or relative pronouns. I have understood this concept and besides I have distinguished the difference. Thanks a lot teacher James from EngVid.
