Yay A new vedao showed up! :D

First, could you explain me the difrence between crops and harvest?
Secondly, I`ve heard that thanksgiving is because of indians gave food to the “first white people” when this white ppl had not any food and this day was 4th of Nov. But I believe that you are correct o.O Not me..
And last, I love your videos! :D (my mom too, she`s just started learning English and started with you! :D

    The difference between crops and harvest is hard to explain. Basically, crops are the food growing in the field, while harvest is the picked food. Harvest can also be a verb or a noun-meaning one can harvest crops. And yes, you are right, the Native Americans (as is the politically correct term) helped the settlers survive their first year, so the two groups shared a meal together. Hope this answered your questions! (I’m from the United States, so I know a thing or two about the subject!)

      hellohello everybody; I want to inform you that in Morocco and all muslim country two Thanksgiving feast, the first one in the end of Ramadan(Arab month) after month of fasting from dawn to sunrise every day; With the exception of patients and the elderly, and all who can not fast as women pregnant, after sunset; we start our breakfast eating some dates and then we pray to thank God who has given us the ability to fast. and we eat a pre-dawn a meal called Assohour; after the end of Ramadan, we celebrate the blessings that God has given us; The other feast I’ll tell about it later

      well thank

god is the one and only the one who created you and me and everything your little little mind can imagine or know of this biggest world
have a nice day

samdrph

In Japan, it has Labor Thanksgiving Day. It is also National Holiday. I didn’t know Thanksgiving Day of Canada and USA were different. But Thanksgiving day of both countries are same meaning, aren’t they? I think Thanksgiving Day matches Harvest and God. Because it is different from labors (workers) if foods(or products) would grow well or not…I’m afraid…haha. Thank you Ronnie. It is great lesson for me :)

Happy04

We have Festival of Lanterns. Chinese people will enjoy the lantern show and eat sweet dumplings(元宵). Wait… Sweet dumplings??? Kind of weird name… I would like to call it “Yuan Xiao” in English which has a name translated from CHN input method.

Thank you! That was nice, besides I was always wondering where this holiday’s from!

Juliyka

Thanks!

mazinho007

Congratulations, your lesson was great. But you need to know about God. It created everything. If you would like to know him, just calling him.
God bless you..
Best regards….

    What is the name of that remote and dark village where you were raised?

    Egghead

      Just because you live in some american country or some big and famous city or somewhere, does not make you any wiser or anything.

      Well let me tell you something the comment I made last time was made so long before and apparently I realize that they were not so appropriate.

      Not that I intended to insult any of our great teachers or anyone on EngVid but It was rather an innocent comment.

      It’s been so long since I’m with this site and probably way longer than you’re.

      So have some respect for people who came on this great site earlier than you did.

      Okey-Dokey, Smokey!

      Well as matter of fact I’m Suraj which means ‘Sun’ so be careful with me.

      sona123

        It is very commendable that you can admit your mistakes.
        And I am not afraid of the Sun because I have a large sun umbrella and a bottle of sunscreen.
        However, I don’t understand, why are you better than me just because you use this site longer?
        I wish you good luck and clouds never block your clear and warm light!

        Egghead

          Wish you the same dear!
          and as matter of fact I got to say that you’re reasonable for what you say.

          Well, I’m no better or anything than you or anybody for that matter but one thing you must be agree with me on; and that is that we must respect one another cause we’re like classmates {Studying on the same site} in way, right?

          GLAD THAT YOU REPLAYED AND WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK!

          And wait by the way I’m from India and as you know my name is Suraj.

          I really would like to know where are you from and what your good name is.

          HAVE A GOOD ONE DEAR!

          From
          SURAJ, INDIA

Thanks, very formative lesson

Coston

Well, I’m not sure but I think that things were kinda different. I read that the Pilgrims were starving to death and had not food at all. Then, the local indians helped them with the crops and everything got better…What happened next? The Pilgrims betrayed the indians, took their lands and yadayada…..

Marcelo Machado

    “Had NO food.”

    Marcelo Machado

hiii plz what is the different between can & could …. ronnie

shelan

    Can is present tense.
    Could is past!

    Ronnie

karl0z

    That’s true and I said that in my comment.

    Marcelo Machado

but after a while, the people from the south came with some herbs… and are helping to leave everything behind and start fresh.. now we have a lot of cultures in 1 place.. those herbs are called Marihuana…

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks to your sharing of holiday in Canada & USA. In the Philippines, we do not have thanks giving holiday but we always have vacations over the year because of typhoon. ):

jds1970

In Canada they do not think of religion is necessary but they believed there is creator.

jds1970

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for all your lessons,
I was wondering if you can make a topic about how to use would in English Canadian, I have been listening to much of using word in my work place when people talking to each other but I can not figure out the meaning.it might be conditional sentence but I do not think so, I know is going to take a couple of lessons for you to cover it, I thinks its one of the hard one in English.

Thnaks

caspian2014

Dear Ronnie,
First of all many thanks for your lessons. I just love watching your videos. You are amazing!!!! Also all of your colleagues of course!!!
Recently I heard an expression: “flat out” e.g. She is flat out trying to get documents for customers. What does “flat out” mean in this context. I know my question is not related to this lesson…but I thought you could explain it to me/us.
Many thanks Ronnie in advance.
Have a smily week :-)

Uhuh

    Flat out means to try to do something without hiding it. Eg.She doesn’t try to hide the fact that she is getting documents for customers.

    Ronnie

      Many thanks Ronnie!!!!

      Uhuh

hi dear friends how can i download this lessen?
when i download it has very short volume. 508 kb.
wat should i do?

aysan

    No Problem! You just download IDM- Internet Download Manager after installing it you should restart your browser then you should be asked to install an extension or plugin of idm or internet download manager. After installing extension or plugin you’ll find download box either at the top of video screen or in the bottom which would be blue in colour after that you’ll find this download option almost every where If there’s any video file on webpage.

    2nd Method,
    Just download a youtube downloader copy the youtube video link and paste it into the software url bar and start downloading it.

The word “Thanksgiving” does not mean “Thanks for the giving,” as she implied. Rather, the word “Thanksgiving” refers to the action of giving thanks!

It is the same question for me too; Who is the “GoD”?

Pimpa

Ronnie, was it true that in the U.S.A, Thanksgiving is more important than Christmas Day? In Philippines, we had many kind of holidays, one of these was “Ninoy Aquino Day”, he was the former senator of our country, because he wanted to point out the people who were corrupted, he was assassinated.
