    rea sedano

James, your videos are very useful! But I wonder if you could do the vido dedicated to synonyms. For instance: what is the difference between- include, embody, and incorporate, or- unite, amalgamate, and merge? It would be great if you did one)


Thank You Teacher…!!!!
After this class I need to clean my screen of my computer :D But now I konw the different of the sounds….!

Juan Carlos

Another great lesson especially for English starters.
I remember when I was a child, how our English teacher tried to learn us how to pronounce TH. He had very special method. He told us to put hot potato into the mouth and try to speak :D
Anyway, your method is much much better. Thank you very much ;)

Thank you a lot! One more usefull lesson.


It really helps, Thank you. It would be nice If you could upload new lessons frequently. I am trying to study English language and I am very much eager to know the tricks. God bless.


Thank you! ‘TH’ is my weakness. Also I get confused with ‘W’, especially pronuncing ‘were’. It’ll be great to have such lesson on the EnVid.

this was really a boring lesson , james why you always make snakes and teach ?? do reply all are waiting to see your reply


I am confused about this question in the quiz:

Which type of ‘s’ sound do we use for the ‘s’ at the end of plurals?
– regular
– vibratory (voiced)

I think both answers are correct. The type of ‘s’ at the end of plurals depends on the last letter at the end of singular form.
– If it voices, ‘s’ is voiced too
– If not, it is voiceless


    Sorry, I meant
    – If the last letter at the end of the singular form is voiced, ‘s’ at the end of plural from is voiced too
    – If not, ‘s’ is voiceless too.


The quality of audio tape is not qality enough.


James, I can’t thank you enough for this lesson !

1. Dear James
I hope you are well, Firs and foremost we haven’t communicated before, therefore allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kaz Rybokowicz, I am a Junior Commodity Broker in the city of London.
The reason I am writing to you, is to ask you opinion or perhaps you would be kind enough to point me right direction. The query I have got is very simple and I am shore person like you, with such extensive expertise with in matters will have instant answer.
I have recently joined the company I work for, in fact it is completely deferent field to what I was specializing previously. One of the ways I came up with, to get ahead faster is to listen to sales telephone conversations of top %10 Senior Brokers with their clients in my company and do exactly the same thing with my clients. I have taken the time to download recordings, and I listen to it over and over again.
The accrual process of memorizing takes wary long time and even then I am unable to recall exact words the way it was said. I have tried your method, I had these recordings transcribed and it is faster, however, 3minutes recording equals to sometimes 5 pages and that takes approximately 15hours to memories. The aim is to get to know something like 25 hours of recording and being able to speak to my client exactly the same way. The reason I think it is good idea for me to memorise these lines is because English isn’t my first language, I am a comfortable speaker and have no problems communicating, having said that the language that’s used in on upbeat business executive level with some of the vocabulary I had no exposure to in the past.
Also there are tones of material on the market with I am required familiarise myself with, not necessarily memorise but to be able to summarize, havening read the text.
Perhaps you know some other ways that would be beneficial to me, with regards to that as well
It would be greatly appreciated if you take few minutes of your time and reply to my email.
Best Regards

Hi James,
I think you are a GREAT teacher.
“The brother of my wife”.
Isn’t it better to say “My wife’s brother?”
I’m asking because I’ve learned that we use “of” for the an-animated things and not for people. Could you PLEASE explain it to me.
Thank you.


I have learned a lot from the lessons, I never knew that there were plenty of pronunciations I was ignorant of

hi teacher james,
I really like the way you teach. I am from Philippines. I’ve been in Canada for almost 10 yrs but I could still use help to improve my english. Pronouncing is one of my biggest problem especially now that I am in Newfoundland their english is totally slang and different. My co-worker is making fun of me when i say words starting with s following with consonant. For example slender, speaking and also words with th like three or tree. Do you do a one on one teaching? My second problem is vocabulary. Anyways I dont want to overwhelm you. I am hoping to hear from you

Profile photo of jiroisey jiroisey

    If it makes you feel any better, everyone else in Canada makes fun of how people in Newfoundland talk! :P

Thank you so much for teaching the way how to pronounce the th (vibrate on)! I have suffered the difficulty for such a long time! Fantastic James!!!

Profile photo of gszz0819 gszz0819

You’re so cool… keep going… you speak really fast but that’s a huge help for us since you force us to listen carefuly and repeat listening… I think that’s a plus for not native speakers like me… the person who thinks that only needs listening your videos ONCE to get the whole idea, in my opinion, is totally wrong!!

Hey James!

And what about the words like: cats, plates, hats and etc.?))
It sounds like the regular ‘s’.
Anyway, thanks for this lesson!

Profile photo of Insomnia195 Insomnia195

    Same here..
    Is there any one could explain it for those who don’t understand the “s” as plurals should be pronounced regular one or vibrated one ?

    Profile photo of MustChuck MustChuck

A little difficult lesson because you have to get used to this type of sounds, but we can improve if we listen to this lesson continuously. Thanks a lot, teacher James from EngVid.
