In this video, you will learn how to give praise in English and also how to tell people what they are doing wrong. You will also learn the meaning of other words like
critic. Avoid being rude or awkward, and learn how to achieve constructive results when talking to people about good and bad things!
My compliments James for his amayzing lessons. One moment, please: the fifth question of the Quiz is wrong answer, course in the lesson right answer is compliment.
You’re right. The wrong answer was selected. We’ve fixed this mistake. Thanks for letting us know!
Could any of the teachers do a lesson on court room english? Sometimes if perusing the Internet you get the Impression that half the english language consists of it. It´s important.
Hi James! I tend to say criticism. And maybe I’m cynic and sometimes pessimist although I’m trying not to be so. That’s no good.
Thank you very much James!!
What an interesting lesson! And I´m not flattering ;)
it’s so psyched lesson ,I enjoyed with big grin on my face , you are so funny (y)
thank you james you are agreat teacher
Hello all, please It’s possible to add a grammar pill about Perfect Infinitive? Thank you
Thank you very much, it was a great lesson :) I am a fan of you :)
thank you so much
very helpful lesson especially when you explain the synonyms for criticize
I’m very happy because I got 100 (:
só para brasileiros: “cynic” é um falso cognato (false friend), nao tem o sentido de “desavergonhado”.
You’re right! I used this word incorrectly before because in Portuguese it has a different meaning. Now I know the correct meaning of “cynic”.
Hi, James and Mr E! This lesson is very interesting, thank you. I got 100!
Thanks James, you did a nice explanation, and notice I am not flattering you up! hahaha. my score was 100 ! wow!!!
Sometimes I am afraid of watching at videos that are advanced level.but I have to motivate myself and try to learn deeply.After 2 years,My English level was better than this ( now days’ ),when I left for Military service about 1 year,approximately I forgot my English.But day by day I will try to learn deeply this is my first goal to get my english at the high possibility.
Thank you for teaching all teachers of Engvid family.
I appreciate and applaud you!

Thanks and carry on .
Hello! Thanks for your lessons. I’ve just found this site last week, and I saw many of the lessons. I wanted to leave a message to the site administrator, but I couldn’t find any e-mail address or contact page. My plan is to watch all the videos on the site. I would like to suggest to have a filter for those who are registered to the site to see which videos have already seen. I think after a while it will be hard to find always where I need to continue my progress. I think it would be very useful. Thanks again for your hard work.
That’s a good idea! I’ll pass it along.
Really useful. I tried to do the same, but I didn’t find any contact. Is will be good to got some progress status also. It is not a criticism, I know the site is free, and I am grateful (I am not flattering, lol) it is just a sugesttion…
Very interesting lesson, James. I enjoyed and learnt a lot. Thank you.

Could you please make lessons about commercial correspondences useful vocabulary
Hi James, I find your video on YouTube. Is it possible to receive complete transcript. YouTube only show up to minute 4.
At first when i saw duration of the lesson, i was little bit afraid that i’ll be bored, but thank you James, you’re teaching so entertaining, that i didn’t noticed that the lesson is already over. Perfect!
But i can’t believe, that you’ve found negative word pessimist, and haven’t found positive optimist =). Also etymology of the word cinyc, this stuff with greeks and dog’s behavior is very interesting, i’m going to investigate it further.
Thanks Mr james ,your videos are out of this world,I think my words are never enough to applaud you and other teachers for your outstanding effort and precious time , keep up the great work :D :D
can i ask a simple question ? what is the difference between ILETS & TOFEL ? and wich one i really need to live and work in Canada for example ?
for an intermediate student ,what would you suggest to read( as books or novels ) why don’t we have an engvid library to discuss & suggest books of all types , what do you think of that ?
also , some sites say that sth takes the cake it could means the most in both good and bad ways … is that true ?
James, your lessons are out of this world, due to which I feel on the ball!
You’ve made a very useful and informative lesson in a clear and funny way. I really enjoy watching your videos. I think you are a talented teacher. Thanks James.
