    Puting into real practice what we have learned is what really makes a difference. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect.

    A willingness to learn and perseverance are the keys to succeed in language learning, I strongly believe so.

    I cannot thank you enough James. You’ve always made a really great job.

    Take care, see you round!

    un4unately no

    Sunday, April 2nd 2017

Hello James. Thank you for such a useful lesson, l really liked.
You mentioned for start studying english, it’d better to cover vocabulary. You’re right, when I wanted to start learning english, my teacher at institute taught me and all of the students vocabularies. And as time passed, we learned phrases, short sentences, easy grammars etc. After that and now we have been learning to how make our own conversations with new and appropriate words. Thank you again, regardless of your speaking. You speak fast!!!

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    hi nkh
    that was a very good lesson for me to.
    how are you today?
    you know, James speaks fast but he speaks clearly and in an other video he said that we have to listen to fast conversations to improve our listening.
    have a good weekend !

    Saturday, January 14th 2017

      Hello bonjour from France. You’re right. This action makes us to listen more carefully and helps us to improve our listening skil. I really try to understand James with out any subtitle, and I feel I’ve been successful in these days. But it’s not enough for me, I would like to understand James completely without any subtitle.

      Saturday, January 14th 2017

        Hi! If you had problem with understanding I would suggest watching TV series as many as you can. I’ve been learning English for 2 years and understanding native speakers was my bottom line. Thats why when my vocab was near 1500 words I started watching TV series. It was awfully hard because I found that I didn’t follow what they’re talking about. them at all. I just couldn’t pinpoint any words. So I decided to write down all their conversations in order to learn new words and I had a strong intention to get to know the way they are thinking. And you know – it works! The first one was “Modern family” and the next ones – “Desperate housewives”, LOST, Gossip girl, SUITS, Visitors and etc. In any case its only my experiance about listening. But now I enjoy watching every vid in this brilliant site and understand literally everything.

        Friday, January 20th 2017

          thanks, Maria

          Sunday, January 22nd 2017

          Thanks a bunch for sharing your language learning experience with us Maria.

          Learning by doing and being in permanent contact with the foreign language make the learning experience much more interesting and fun.

          I absolutely agree with you Maria. Keep up the good work!

          Ciao

          Sunday, January 29th 2017

          Thanks for your tip, Maria. But tell me pls, did you watch TV series with or without subs?
          And what about your talk – can you speak English well or you just have good understanding? Thanks for your attention!

          Saturday, February 4th 2017

          Hi, Maria. Thanks a lot for sharing one of your methods of study.I’m going to do what you suggested.
          I love watching series as well and I think that a huge part of what I know is due to them.
          Sorry for any grammar mistake and thank you very much.

          Sunday, March 12th 2017

          thanks Maria for help

          Sunday, August 6th 2017

Thanks James. You’re perfect. Could you please prepare a marine and sailing vocabulary lesson.? It could be different and great.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

u r the best teacher i have seen him english with u Is 2 easy

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    Kotoz, I think you should say, it’s so easy not too easy. Because in positive sentences, like yours we use (so) to explain the quality of sth. I’m not sure about that. If any one knows about that, tell us and guide me. Thanks.

    Monday, January 16th 2017

      OK Ty kindly I meant his lessons r the best at all no more no less

      Tuesday, January 17th 2017

A good lessons, James. Thank you.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Hi James, I’ve been studying English for a very long time and it’s being very difficult for me to learn it. Every time when I’m driving I turn on the radio but I just don’t understand a word and I got really dispared for not understanding. How come I can only understand if the conversation is directly with me but if I try to listen to a conversation that is not mine I just feel like an idiot for not understanding what I should for the years I’ve been studying. One of my biggest wishes is to domain English as or even better as I do with Spanish. P.s. I love to watch movies but I only understand it with English subtitles and I hate this because if I go to a cinema there’s no subtitles and guess what? I leave the room without understanding a word😠. I feel stock and really need to improve. Thank you James I’m gonna continue study even if it takes my while life.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    I’ve got the same problem unfortunately. I can write, read, answer quizzes, everything, except speaking! When I need to communicate I failed. Has the cat got my tongue, I ask myself. And listening… I need to get used to the person to distinguish his speech. I will really appreciate if someone can speak with me. Just few minutes a day.

    Monday, January 16th 2017

      Hi Nataanna, I can speak with you for 5 maybe 10 minutes per day, If you want, ok?

      Tuesday, January 17th 2017

        Hi Romacio81, I would like to. My skype login is natakostova1, user`s name Nataly Kostova. But we are five hours apart, if you are from Brasil. I work as a part timer. So, I`m free on Wednesday, Friday (untill noon, Brasil time) and Sunday (whole day). See you.

        Wednesday, January 18th 2017

      Has the cat gotten your tongue? Gee! Don’t worry, that often happens when trying to get our ideas across in English.

      Nice Day!

      Sunday, January 29th 2017

        Hi, Regino! Hold your horses! Gee!!!
        I was an eager beaver with work and home duties last week, so I couldn’t answer my skype, sorry.

        Monday, January 30th 2017

      Hi Nataana, I hardly ever speak English before, only reading and listening. Now I’m soft of having much free time and desired to find somebody so I can speak with. Do you want to practice with me? My skype ID is vietnhat1910

          SKIDKA said that several Algerian families live in France , he knows someone in there but he doesn’t have family in France.

          a lot of people from Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal, Italy, Poland,Spain and others countries, moved to France in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s because we had a lot of factory, a lot of jobs during this time, now it’s not the same at all but we still have immigration (not as big as it was of course)

          Sunday, January 15th 2017

          nkh.453: There is a mistake in your sentence. Could you, please, tell us WHAT YOU WROTE IN THAT COMMENT.
          1) We use direct words order (as in affirmative sentence) – without did, in complex (maybe compound) sentence;
          2) this transforms into that (reported speech).
          Please, don`t take offence at my remark. I just want you to speak more correct. And I try to follow James advice to write more….

Thanks James, really! It’s been a beautiful lesson. Specially in the final part, much profound and stimulating. I got excited ;)

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Thanks:)))))

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Hi James, great lesson, very useful. But you didn’t talk about listening. You know, I have been use English language all my life because of my work, I’m a software developer. But despite this, my comprehension in spoken English was really poor. After a year watching videos at EngVid every single day, I’ve get a much better comprehension. Now I can understand you guys at EngVid without subtitles, even you that speak a bit faster for me. I know, you speak as teachers, but I think that this was a big step for me. Thank you, until next time.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    Hello Mr Jorge. You’re right,Engvid helps us a lot in improving english. And that’s great you can understand us and training videos easily. I hope in the future,you can be better in speaking. Wish you the bests.

    Saturday, January 14th 2017

Aula espetacular. Professor, sou brasileiro estudo inglês por conta própria,faço cursos on-line Babel e Duolingo, leio e escuto texto em ingLes, anoto todas as palavras. Consegui entender sua aula, com a legenda em inglês, uns 70%. O que está faltando? Help me!

Saturday, January 14th 2017

    Hello Dude ! Try to forget the portuguese or do think in english. Change the language of your social media, cell, and other. I watch my favorite films in english. I hope helped you. See you

Saturday, January 14th 2017

thank u teachers

Saturday, January 14th 2017

wonderful

Saturday, January 14th 2017

It’s a little more complicated than before because we have to follow 5 rules and we must figure out our own skills to get a good level such a Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Native. Everyone has different ideas by himself and arranging a plan is the question as you have explained, anyway practising every day you can solve the problem in a great measure. Thank a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, as always a very interesting lesson.

Saturday, January 14th 2017

I got fullmark without watching Mr/James the best one At all

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Thanks for this lesson i’ll try these steps to learn English. Thank you so much

Saturday, January 14th 2017

Hi James! Thanks for this video, it was really interesting. Very useful tips you have given to us. I believe that is the best way for us, as learners, to do all that stuff in order to get more involved with the languagge and improve it

Saturday, January 14th 2017

that is good lesson !!!

Saturday, January 14th 2017

It is very interesting for me , i would like to than James for the lesson.A

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Hi, guys! When are you sleeping?! I came round to the site late at night yesterday (about 11 p.m. – Moscow time). There was not new lesson and your comments, of course! It`s so surprising for me to find them in the morning…. I guess you have an advantage of living another time zone.

Sunday, January 15th 2017

    maybe you should subscribe youtube teacher’s channels to know that it will be a new lesson coming soon before engVid published it, maybe this way will allowed you to be among the first commentator nataanna. good luck. take care.

    Sunday, January 15th 2017

      SKIKDA – thank you for advice.

      Sunday, January 15th 2017

      Thanks so much. Have a nice time with your English learning !

      Sunday, January 15th 2017

    We are about 8 hours apart, I think. I usually post in the late evening, which would be around 5 to 9 AM for you.

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Thank you teacher…

Sunday, January 15th 2017

James, it is interesting and useful lesson. Thank you! By the way I started to learn English from the end – after traveling to the West Europe, after that I learnt many new words, then I learnt some grammar, then – new words again, grammar, … etc. And at last I have found EngVid. LOL

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Sunday, January 15th 2017

James, thank you. )) It was as usual very interesting and useful for me.

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Thank you for this lesson. It was my first lesson on this site😊

Sunday, January 15th 2017

    Welcome to engVid! 😸

    Monday, January 16th 2017

You’re really grate teaching English. You ‘re very helpful, and I’m not going to say for me, because I heard Ronnie not to say that in shorts answer lessons.
I don’t know if I’ve written it well but I hope you understood.

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Thank you, James for the lesson. There is a big problem in Russia in studying languages. We are taught grammar a lot from the beginning. As a result few students master their English. A lot of them give up studying. We are not involved into foreing culture at all in everyday life.
On the other hand, many people consider leaning languages useless, even smart ones!
Does this problem exist in other countries? (I mean a lot of grammar at the beggining)

Sunday, January 15th 2017

    Oh yes, Nataanna. Here in Brazil that’s the same in all traditional English schools. A lot of grammar and grammar until one get bored from this. I have wasted a lot of money with almost no good results. The majority of the population here only speaks the native language, Portuguese, although almost everyone knows the importance of speaking another language especially English.

    Sunday, January 15th 2017

      John B, you have very good English. So, your endeavors made benefits for you, it wasn`t waste of money!
      Maybe there`s two ways of learning.
      The first one is more complicated, long and without visible result in the middle. You may even skip several levels (all range of intermediate). But at the end you will found yourself speaking almost fluently. So do I.
      The second type of students starts speaking without any attention on mistakes. They study grudually.
      And the third type just has an ear for language…
      Maybe we should afraid less? I struggle with my speaking anxiety a lot.
      All the best.

      Monday, January 16th 2017

        Hi Nat
        it’s not easy to improve a language at home but Engvid lessons are great, and communicate with other people by writing messages makes feel like we are in a huge classroom ! People should write more messages but every body seem to be shy or afraid!
        By the way , how is the weather in Russia?

        Monday, January 16th 2017

          I agree with you, that EngVid is super opportunity to communicate. I highly appreciate their job. And James made me to understand that writing helped us to think in English properly. I never thought about that.
          The weather is awful in Moscow region. It is not cold, but slush. I wish it were frosty and sunny. There are traffic jams due to wet snow. I don’t like such winter. It was great a week ago: minus 20C. The real Cristmas! And what about France? Am I right? Are you from France? Do you live in a big city?

          Monday, January 16th 2017

          I didn’t know the word “slush” , thank you for that lesson!
          I live in a small village in France near to Belgium and Luxembourg and this week we’ll have -8 ° Celsius , usually we have between 0 and 5 and it’s pretty rainy , therefore we don’t have your winters and I would love to have a sunny -20 °!
          bye

          Tuesday, January 17th 2017

          It’s going to be sunny today. I’m driving for work now and it’s minus 18. It’ll be nice day I hope. I like frosty weather and I enjoy skating. Of course, when it’s little bit warmer…

          Sunday, January 29th 2017

        Thanks for your comments Nataanna, your english is also very good. I think you are right, I get really nervous when I have to speak English and sometimes I don’t know what to say. It’s as if I have forgotten everything I have learned! I really need to control my nerves. Keep studying!

        Monday, January 16th 2017

          Hi, John B! Nice to meet you. How weird the human nature is! We study, do our best, try hard, but feel uncomfortable doing mistakes. All teachers (here on EngVid) tell us that it’s normal, but our childhood or school experience makes us to be shy. I’ve made friends from EngVid learners last two weeks. You know, I don’t afraid of speaking with them, especially when the video is off. I still make mistakes and I realize myself doing them. But I don’t feel stressed. Try!!!!
          What field are you in?

Sunday, January 15th 2017

All of you guys are really great! I really like your style. Thx a lot guys ;)

Sunday, January 15th 2017

Thank you very much James for the good lesson, I listened to you first time and I liked it a lot. Your advice how to learn English is a good help. But I ask you kindly – please don’t cover the board while speaking. As you speak quite a fast, some words just “fly” away and it’s very needed to see what you have written there, every word. Thanks once again, I definitely keep watching you in further too, meet you again

I find this method of engvid and after more try I think that james is one of the best in engvid. But didn’t try everyone. b regards. Alain

      Sunday, February 26th 2017

    welcome, do you have family or friend in France?

    Tuesday, January 17th 2017

Great day yes, super explanation and gradually
so good James.
In my opinion, this is one of the most important lesson to study English.
Thanks ;)

Monday, January 16th 2017

when I read the news from English site, I find out a word that confusing me. That word is “TWEET” then I open the dictionary for its definition, it means “a short, high sound made by a bird”.

BUT in the head line of NEWS, I think the meaning it is not that way; ex.

Donald Trump’s provocative tweets create problems for US diplomats and are harmful to American soft power.

Please explain me what does exactly TWEET mean?

Thank you.

Monday, January 16th 2017

    Oh, sorry! A “tweet” is a post on Twitter, the social media network.

    A related term is “retweet”, which means (v.) to share someone else’s tweet, or (n.) a shared tweet by someone else. E. g. “In the past, Trump has approvingly retweeted memes from extremist accounts.”

    Wednesday, January 18th 2017

The main massage is to learn english evry day if you want to be on the wave.Other teachers also promote this idea.

Sunday, February 19th 2017

Hello, James! Thanks for your lesson. I have a question for you (maybe it’s will looks a strange one to you, but I will asking you anyway :) )
I learn my English and practice it during few years (!), I have many English speaking friends in Facebook, I speak every day English at home (with my familly), but… everytime I do the same mistakes! My school teacher told me one day: “You are impossible!”. :(
What kind of advice can you give me? Maybe you had already some stubborns as me? My grammar is not working, I can’t using the verbs in the good/right way (even when I repeat and repeat them) … everything in my head is as a big plate of salade :) and…yes, I like to travel and I’m traveling sometimes! :)
Thank you in advance!
Christina

Hello James!
You’re one of my favorite teachers and your lessons are always fun to watch (You rock!).
I’ve started to watch envied lessons about a year or something ago.
My question is the following:
I’d like to understand which level I’m in (e.g. Intermediate, Advanced etc).
I went to the US for few months while I was in school (about 10 years ago) – every year (for 4 consecutive years) I went for like 1 month and a half with an exchange program and I made a lot of friends.
I really love English and I use it in my everyday life. I can understand movies, songs, people talking fast (as you xD), have a conversation with people from within the US, Canada and non-english speaking countries with their different accents. I’ve got a pretty good accent (according to my American friends) and I try to watch, speak, and write in English when I can.
The only downside is that I think, maybe because of lack of day-to-day conversations with natives, sometimes I forget to include a word, proverbs, common ways to say something or just jokes when I speak to someone, even though I understand everything. If I just look at the words afterwards I feel stupid for not remembering them.

What do you think I could do to just “remove” this defect?
I’d love to move to the US for a job (so I know for sure I’ll improve everything), and I’m trying to since few years, but immigration laws and stuff give me hard times.

What do you suggest me?
Thanks!

P.S – Continue your amazing job as you are among the best teachers ;-)

Monday, July 3rd 2017
